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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Labor Watch Part 2

I just wanted to jot down a couple things for my own future reference. So this is going to be TMI, just a little heads up if you want to stop reading, I’d do it now. This past week, daily, I have had pain right under my shoulder blade where my ribs meet my spine. […]

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 […]

Bump day week 35!

So I am going to start this post out for apologizing for what you are about to read. I am going to dump my stress and feelings here and I hope that it doesn’t make this an awful post to read. Today has just been a long day and I am so ready to go […]

Bump day week 34!

My baby boy is the size of a melon at 4 and 3/4 pounds! He is still pretty active for as crowded as we are getting. I seem to have lost my appetite this week and I don’t really want to eat anything. There are days when I have to make myself pick something from […]
