Bump day week 5

Today marks pregnancy week 5! Baby is now the size of a sesame seed. So far so good this week. I have been testing almost every other day and yesterday the test line was way darker. So dark that it had to pull tons of color from the control line which is now getting less […]

Cycle3 TTC3 CD30

This cycle has been a series of unfortunate events. I really felt like everything was against us and it was all a bunch of signs telling us not this time.  First, we only BD once very early in the window. Once. That alone had me giving up all hope. Next, I thought I had a […]

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 […]

Cycle 1 TTC3 6DPO

I am officially in the TWW. Gosh I sure do hate this part. I started my progesterone suppository last night so I’m on dose 2 now. I had some mild twingy pain yesterday so I decided that I would start the prometrium a day early. So far so good. I don’t feel any symptoms yet […]

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 […]
