$40 breast pump!

Wow!  It's a medela double pump, goes for about $250 on Amazon!!

Also got a box of maternity clothes for $20 :) YAY!!!

Week 5, Day 6

Almost at 6 weeks!  Yay!  Half way to safety!  I can't wait.

Hold on...pee break....

Look how pregnant I am!  Wow!
I needed a better picture.  Apparently the one I took with the first FRER (6/15) isn't dark enough?  I keep showing people a picture of it and they all go: "'re not pregnant...right?"  And I'm like..."Really?!"  WOULD I BE SHOWING YOU A PICTURE OF A PREGNANCY TEST IF I WASN'T PREGNANT?!

Ok.  So I wasn't that mean.  But I mean...really.  Ha, I should have said "yeah.  Not pregnant." and put the picture away.  (eye roll).  Geesh.  If THIS picture doesn't get the point across I don't know what will.    My pregnancy line totally owns the control line on todays test!  Woot!

So my boobs were sore yesterday! A little sore today, not too bad though.  Slept 10 hours last night.  Was in bed before 9.  Actually, was asleep on the couch before 9.  No idea when Kevin put me to bed.

The house is a mess.  We need more storage options.  IKEA, anyone?  We're going to go when we go to Atlanta!  Can't wait.  I need to compile a list!  Also, I want to get rid of anything we don't want or need.  I don't want to have superfluous crap lying around when the baby is born.  We also need to work on migrating our possessions higher off the ground so that our little one won't be able to destroy them as easily.  Notice I said "as easily."  

Check it out.  Pretty amazing.

Still 112# today!  Yay!  I've been 113# the past few days, so I'm hoping to stay in this general area for a little longer, at least.  I don't want to gain more than 30 pounds.  That will put me at 142#!  Woah!  I just have to try to be good and not over indulge.  It's hard when you're hungry all the time.  I'm trying though.  Little chicken doesn't need much right now.

Week 5, Day 4

Here's my non-existing baby bump! LOL
5 weeks, 4 days

Been super super tired.  Came home yesterday and took a nap before Zumba.  I did Zumba this morning, and I have to work at 2:30, so I was thinking about taking a nap from 12-1pm, then showering, and getting ready for work.

No gained weight yet!  Yippee!  Zumba is getting a little easier.  Doing it first thing in the morning was good, I think.  I had fresh energy.  Not much nausea, just hunger.  Some things do seem to turn my stomach, and I've kind of had an aversion to sweets, which is odd but AWESOME!  I need to call the doctors office and find out what to expect at my appointment on the 18th of July.  Probably blood :(  I'm going to ask for a sedative.  I'll seriously freak out.  Thinking about makes me light headed.  Ugh.

Nap time!

Week 5: So I decided we're having a girl.

I mean, are you supposed to resist all this stuff?!?!  You can't leave a newly pregnant lady alone for 3 hours with $30 spending money and expect her not to spend it on possible gender inappropriate clothing....

And the stuff was so cheap!!!!  Once Upon A Child is amazing.  It's owned by the same company as Plato's Closet, which means it's used but good condition, name brand kids clothing for thrift shop prices. It doesn't get any better than that!  Wow!

So--exhaustion!  I'm actually prying my eyes open right now so I can type up this blog.  I feel like a pin has popped me and let out all the air that was my energy.  I was feeling a little  nauseous during lunch so I didn't eat much.  May have been my prenatals.  Got super hungry later.  No cramps really today, but my stomach muscles feel weird--like they have less strength in them or something.  I'm afraid to strain them.

Also, bloated and gassy--but that may have been from drinking Sprite.

112#, 98.06ºF

Week 4, Day 6

Nothing new here really.  Still tired and getting ravenously hungry at the spur of a moment.

Temps are staying high (yay).

Probably going to retire soon for the night.


Also, I feel like my heart races easily and I get out of breath easier.

Also also, my pubie stubbles are bothering me and they never really have before.

Week 4, Day 4

Well, I just got up and now I'm heading to work for a 14 hour day!

Love it.  *sarcasm*

Wish I could take a nap.  Maybe I'll get lucky and not have to stay the whole day.

Doubt it.

Wish me luck!

I got to leave at 3pm!  HOORAY!

Week 4, Day 3

Still in shock.

Told my parents, brother, and g-rents today.  I hope they can all keep the secret.  We tried to do this really cool "lets take a family picture" and then blurt out "we're pregnant!" but no one reacted or moved!  We were like, really?!?!?!

So I guess it's kind of real now...

So crazy.

I am going to be so fat.

I'll probably have to take off my wedding rings.

I hope my head doesn't swell.

And I could really do without hemorrhoids, too.

Week 4, day 3! I am so ungodly tired.

I was so exhausted yesterday! I am so yawny! Holy poo! Still can't believe that I'm pregnant. I mean, wow. I keep talking to little chicken. I think he appreciates it. Do I really have to birth him? Maybe we can invent teleporting by then. I'll start working on that. I still don't have sore boobs or any symptoms other than exhaustion. A few cramps here or there, but that's it. I'm really hoping that the Zumba convention won't be too much for me. I'm so excited. About everything. Wow.

CD 30: Well I guess I won't be getting a tattoo this weekend.....

BECAUSE I GOT A BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Left: 5/15  Center: 5/13  Right 5/12

Ok, so here's what happened.

Monday morning before I went down to Port St. Lucie/South Florida to do a charity event with Chef, I POAS because you know, no period yet, temps are still high at this point, and I knew we were probably going to have a few drinks at the end of the night.  BFN.  So I was like, ok.  Grabbed a tampon to keep with me because I had felt a few cramps.  The event went great, had a rum and coke there and then a few more drinks over the course of several hours when we got back to Chefs house.  I was pretty toasty.  Toasty enough that I had to sit and wait a bit before I could lay down to go to bed.

Tuesday was fairly miserable.  Forgot to temp.  More cramps (light ones) so I put a tampon in since I knew AF was coming.  I was exhausted from the night before, and after work, I had to drive an hour to babysit.  I took a 20 minute nap along the way.

Today I woke up and took my temperature.  98.07ºF.  At this point I'm figuring that I ovulated a few days later than I thought I did.  I get up and go into the bathroom.  I pull out the tampon and start peeing. I realize the tampon is clean, so I stop the stream, pull out a POAS, and test.  And as I'm watching it, I'm doing this blinking thing--trying to clear my vision from just waking up.  I couldn't fricken believe my eyes.  There it was.  2 lines.  HOLY SHIT.  I looked at it 10 more times.  Still there.  I couldn't even gather my wits together enough to do anything fun for Kevin.  I pulled back the shower curtain (he was already in the shower) and held up the stick.  He thought it was a positive OPK lol.  Then he's like, "and you're sure you've never seen anything like that before?  Never had 2 lines ever?"  So I grab the one from Monday out of the trash, and sure as shit there are 2 lines there, too.  YOU MEAN I COULD HAVE KNOWN SINCE MONDAY?!?!?!?!  I watched the silly thing for about 3 minutes before writing it off as a BFN and threw it out.  I would NOT have had anything to drink if I had known.  WTF.

So anyhoo, now my big issue is to figure out how to tell everyone that I'm canceling getting a tattoo on Saturday, after I already made my appointment. I think I'll go with the "I have to buy tires for my car" thing.

CD 28: My Chart is So Confusing.

I really have no idea when I ovulated.  Today is 16 DPO according to fertility friend.  I almost think I ovulated on CD 18 rather than 12.  But who knows.  Not me.  Still no AF though, but I'm keeping an eye out.  I should be starting any time now.

BFN this morning.  Temp = 98.00ºF

Saturday, June 11, 2011

CD 26: Still high temps, BFN.

I did have a few drinks last night though, so maybe that's why.

Lotiony CM this morning.

Temp: 98.06ºF

Zumba today! Lots of fun.  Good class.  Kevin puked this morning.  He only had a few drinks...must not have sat well with him.

CD 24: AF should be coming soon....?

No temperature dips yet!  And apparently I could have ovulated on CD 14, rather than 12, which would mean we BD'd on ok days...maybe.  Temps are all still up, so I'm hoping!

I'm getting a tattoo, and I'd like to get it asap in case I get pregnant--I know a lot of people are against getting tattoos while preg, and I think that most tattoo parlors refuse to give tattoos to pregnant women.  So I'd kind of like to get it now instead of having to wait almost a year.  We'll see.  I'll post a pic when I get it. I wonder if/how it will affect my temps?

Sticky CM today.  I hate sticky.  So annoying.  Makes me want to change my underwear 4 or 5 times a day.

Temp was 97.86ºF this morning.

Zumba® Convention in 1 month! WEEE!  So excited.  Can't wait!

Then the next month we are going to Atlanta to visit our fellow hopefully TTCers!  Ha!  I wish, anyways!

I'll post again in a day or two :)  I guess no news is good news!

CD22: not much on the news front

I tasted the raspberry sour dha/omega 3 gummies this morning. Not bad, not bad at all.

I wonder if I'll actually get AF on the 26th. Fertility friend and the WTE fertility tracker both predict that it will start that day. This is weird in my opinion since last cycle was so whack.

Doctors appointment went well :)

Had my annual gyn appt today at 2:00pm at a different practice.  I'm very happy with my experience there. My doctor is super duper nice, and really cool.  She said to just relax and have fun for a while, have sex whenever and to not kill myself with charting and whatnot.  She even prescribed me a chewable prenatal vitamin :)

Too bad we'll probably never get pregnant with the "have sex whenever" method.

At least I don't have to change the litter boxes for a while.

Read more of scream-free parenting today.  I'm going to have to pick that up.  I love reading these positive discipline parenting books.  It makes me feel more in control.  And I think the more I read them and let the ideas and values sink in, the more natural using them will become.

Temp today was 98.13ºF.  I may have said that in my post earlier this morning.  No cramping, nipples are still sensitive.  Cm is pretty wet, but that may be left over from the dr. appt this morning?  I know that sounds weird, but you all know what I mean....

I was having a dandy day, and now I'm feeling down.  Kinda started with the whole sex thing I think, and then the car thing, and the lettuce thing, and now I'm just bleh.  Why do guys want sex, complain about not having enough sex, yet don't want it when you offer it?  2 days in a row.  Nada.  Unfortunately, you don't get babies without  And I didn't feel like driving home today but somehow I ended up doing so.  I don't know.  I just don't feel very social right now.  I don't really feel like doing anything.  I wanted to go over our financial situation since we suck at managing money, but now I don't want to.  Don't even care at the moment.  Bleh.

CD 21: Fertility Friend says I ovulated on CD 12....?

And I think that it's wrong.

The last opk I took, which was yesterday, had NO LINE whatsoever.  While the one on the 2nd had a pretty decent line.  I'd almost call it positive...but I'm not 100% on that.  I should have been taking pictures the whole time.  Sigh.

I have an annual appointment today.  Which I'm excited about/ dreading.  You know that love/hate relationship with that.  I really really wanted to BD 2 days ago and yesterday, but Kev was too tired :(  I don't want to hear a word out of him about being sad I'm not pregnant yet, is all I have to say about that.  I really think we missed out window this cycle.

Today's temperature was 98.13ºF, my highest so far.  I think I may have ovulated 6/3 or 6/4ish.  Yesterday afternoon/evening my nipples were sensitive to touch, and the day before I had slight cramping.  My nipples are still a little sensitive today.

I need to make a smaller, less poster-sized chart so I can bring it with me today.  I also need to gather my questions!  So I think I'll work on that :)

CD 17: The past 5 days temps have been very spiky.

Up, down, up, down, up!



I wonder what that means.  Probably that I'm just all weird and junk.  It was being all normal and stuff until CD 12.   Weird.

Took an opk today.

I'm still calling this a negative because it's not as dark as the control line...but it's pretty dark, right?  If only this was a POAS!

Or maybe this is a +?  IDK.

I had kind of watery CM today.  Not super heavy, but it was there.  Zumba today :)  No other symptoms really.  I could swear I felt a hint of soreness in my lower abdomen earlier--but it almost wasn't even noticeable.

CD 16: my brain is hurting.

So I decided to try to make a brilliant graph/chart thing in eXcel.  Figured it'd be pretty easy.  I want to make the ultimate BBT chart.


My brain hurts.

This is what I was able to do so far.

I want to add CM, OPK, POAS, BD, Symptoms, and other stuff...but I'm not sure how yet.  This is a work in progress :)


-opk again today.  Light CM--creamyish.  Grumpy today--not totally, but a little.  Zumba today.  No other real symptoms other than the ball of my right foot hurting.
