Hesitant Updates…

13 Sep

I’ve been so hesitant to post anything fertility related lately, because it seems like every time I post something hopeful, my period starts just a few hours later…  BUT, I wanted to give an update because I’ll probably be a little out of touch this next weekend.

Tomorrow morning is our official test date.  I’ve been tempted to cheat all week, but I chickened out.  I would have taken one this morning, but I had to leave the house at 6:30 and knew I wouldn’t be home until 9:30 tonight.  I didn’t want to find out and then have a day like that.  So we decided to listen to Dr B and wait until tomorrow, which will be day 32 (14 or 15 days past ovulation) of my cycle.  If you remember, last cycle wasn’t even 24 days, so this is an improvement.   I’m still taking progesterone twice a day, and I still hate it.

I’m suddenly breaking out like a teenager (which didn’t make me feel better about starting my high school observations today…), and am more bloated than I’ve ever been– but surprisingly, I don’t feel bad really.  I just feel really tired.  Most of the time.

But, we’re going through life right now assuming this isn’t going to be our month.  We’ve been too busy and I’ve been too active.  We haven’t talked about any “What if’s” and I haven’t really looked at anything baby related for a couple weeks.  I don’t think I’ll be devastated when this cycle doesn’t work.  Keeping busy really is helping.

School is feeling overwhelming– getting back into the swing of things is harder than I expected.  Unpacking is getting there, but slowly due to school and being exhausted.  PLUS, Skill is coming home on Friday evening!  So we’ve been prepping and getting ready for him.  We’ve bought almost everything we need for him and are just waiting on a few things to come in the mail.

I won’t leave you hanging if we get a positive tomorrow or Friday.  But if you don’t hear from me, assume I’m off spending quality time with our new family member and have nothing exciting to report. 🙂

As of Today…

19 Jul


Look at that pretty chart! 😛  We’re 4-5 days past ovulation today. Beautifulness.  I’ve been reading another blog lately, get in my [lemon]belly.  She’s doing clomid and intrauterine insemination (IUI).  I feel for her.  I’m also thankful we’re not at that point yet.  It’s got to be incredibly difficult. 😦  Le sigh…

This past weekend was good though.  My little brother, Alex, turned 15 on Friday.  I kind of can’t believe it.  I feel like he should either be a little kid still or be a lot older than he is.  He’s a good kid. 🙂  We went to Six Flags in Gurnee, IL to celebrate.  My niece, Calli, and I stuck with the spinning rides while everyone else went on the coasters.  I think we did the tea cups 5 times.  We ❤ spinning rides.  No one else can stomach them, so we’re amusement park buddies.  She’s 6 by the way. 😉  As soon as I can get her to go upside down, she’ll be my Zipper buddy too.  Love that ride, but never have anyone to go on it with me.  So sad.

Sunday, I went with my sister and Calli to visit the new puppy they’re adopting in a few weeks.  He’s a medium, black goldendoodle named Mr. Smith.  He’s adorable!  I’ll be trying to talk Jeremy into a standard size until we buy a house. 😉  I would really like a dog.  I love our cats, obviously, but since I’m home so much I wouldn’t mind having some company.  I’ve been stuck on wanting a poodle for years and years.  They make awesome guard family dogs. 😛  But goldendoodles have all the great qualities of poodles, plus they’re faces aren’t quite so scary and pointy, which was always the major negative in poodles for me.  We’ll see.  I have some time to bribe, throw a fit, sneak, insist, do it anyway, have an adult conversation with Jeremy about getting a dog. 😉  I’m hoping he LOVES Mr. Smith.

Meanwhile, I’ve been doing a lot of cleaning and sewing lately.  I’ve got to keep our upstairs areas as clean as possible now that allergy season has come in full force.  I’m feeling ok. Just a little congested and head-achy.  And sleepy.  I could sleep for 10 hours a day easily right now.  Keeping things vacuumed with my anti-allergen vacuum.  My mother- and father-in-law put an allergy filter in the a/c unit and I think it’s helping.  I can breath at least and that’s all that really matter, right?
I think I’m really enjoying this stay-at-home wife thing.  It helps that I have sewing for the store to do.  Last week was bad.  Between my allergies and feeling down about not being pregnant yet, I didn’t do much.  But I’ve got quite a few projects lined up that should last through the summer.  I’m going to visit Jessica in a couple weeks.  We’re going to push refrigerators around her front yard to try to get her to go into labor while I’m there. 😛   Actually, I think we’re going to be freezer meal fools so she doesn’t have to do any cooking when the baby comes.  Same thing, right?  She’s too cute. 🙂

I’ll have some pictures to post soon on my most recent projects, but you’ll just have to wait for pictures. 😛
