Cycle2 TTC3 13DPO

I am really surprised. This cycle, too, was a bust. Completely blank BFNs for four straight days. I was shocked. I was sure that we had done our job perfectly this time and that everything was going smoothly. I don’t know what happened. I was doing so good this cycle too. I wasn’t antsy at all […]

Back in the Saddle

Its officially cycle 1 TTC #3. I’m only CD5 (its amazing how easy those mnemonics come back to you) and I already feel those uneasy, queasy, stomach-flip-flopping, anxious feelings again. I really believe that there is a form of PTSD for infertility. Because I surely have it. I feel like I did in the thick […]

I’ve Got the Fever

Oh man, guys. I am really surprised that I’ve caught it this early. Two words. Baby fever. I can’t not think about babies. I am overcome with a giddy feeling of joy when I think about babies, see babies, smell babies and hold babies. Babies babies babies…… my pinterest is overflowing with them. I didn’t […]

Three week update!

Seriously, can time just slow down a little bit?! This has gone by way too fast! Ivan had his appointment on Friday and he weighed 7lb6oz and was 19.5 inches. Growing like a weed, probably because he eats all the time! His cheeks are getting chunkier and his little tummy is too! He still grins […]

Ivan’s Birth Story 

Reader’s disgression: this is a birth story. Birth in general is pretty messy and graphic. If you are not into TMI, you should probably skip this post. * * Just before 2:30am on August 3rd, I woke up from my sleep thinking I felt wet. I was half asleep and just rolled over and dozed […]

One Week Update

I can’t believe how fast this first week has gone! Its crazy to think that this time last year we were still in the process of TTC. How’s baby? Ivan is doing really well. When he was born he weighed 6lb5oz and only dropped to 6lb1oz when we left the hospital. He had his first […]

Bump day week 37!

We are so close to the end! I had an NST on Monday and baby brother weighed about 5lb 6oz. My doctor’s appointment went really well yesterday. I brought in my birth plan and we talked it over. My doctor said that there wasn’t anything unreasonable in it and that he felt like we would […]

Bump day week 36!

Hello cankles! This week I have started getting swollen ankles by the days end. It isn’t too bad yet but I do notice it. My back is also bothering me a little bit more as it is really starting to curve back. I have been drinking lots of water to try and keep hydrated and […]

Labor Watch Part 1

Yep, you read that title right. Yesterday I went to the bathroom as part of my morning ritual and saw that I had lost a large piece of brown mucus plug. About the size of my thumb from the first knuckle. I had some BH contractions that eventually got to 3 minutes apart and were […]
