I had my final scan, turns out I only released on egg from my left ovary. I was slightly disappointed that I hadn't released two, as that would have upped my odds. But I am still grateful that at least I did o, and we did get good timing in. I can't do anymore than that! I'm currently 4dpo. I'm going to test at 10dpo, no sooner, last month was too stressful with the early testing!
Sister had her scan again yesterday at the hosp, everything looked good still, baby was measuring at 6w 5d with a lovely hb . I'm so pleased all is ok!
C rang me tues morning, she tested 10dpo) and thought she could see a faint line! I drove to work and met her and we dipped one of her frers together. She got a bfp! That line showed up straight away! I'm so pleased for her but can't help but feel at the same time because she got her bfp I'm not going to get mine, like they are limited or something which I know is really stupid!!
Anyway, I'm trying to keep busy in this 2ww, only 5 days to go until I test. Please please please let it be my bfp!!
Symptoms? Nothing so far part from today I started getting sharp pains on my left ovary area, probably from the ruptured follicle. But I have also started getting twinges on my right side this evening. I'm hoping the left side pain is a good sign as I had that with both pregnancies.
Only 2 days then it's my testing day!! Feeling positive today!
Well, the positive feelings didn't get me far bfn's on testing and af arrived. Couldn't believe it I was gutted, and the thought of carrying on to another cycle was unbearable. But now I'm onto that other cycle it's fine. I have a new plan too! I have decided to do a trigger shot this cycle alongside the clomid. I know it could up my risk of multiples but I'm so desperate for another baby and I can't help but feel time is running out.
I had my base follie tracking scan today, no cysts so all good to go. I'm doing the clomid days 3-7 and my 2nd follie scan on day 13 which will hopefully show nice mature follicles so I can trigger that morning. All being good then me and dh are off that weekend to get all the bd'ing in we need to make our little bubba #3!
Sister had her scan the other day and all looked good, baby was measuring 8w1d yay so exciting! She is about the only person who can be pregnant without me feeling jealous, not even a tiny piece. I'm so happy for her and can't wait to be an auntie.
She is 8w4d today, time sure is going quick already.
Bil and his gf had their baby last week, little Henry, me and dh are going up to see them Saturday and meet the little man, just to make me even more broody haha can't wait for baby cuddles
So this month didn't go quite according to plan but still worked out ok. Iwent for my cd13 scan which showed absolutely nothing, no follies at all, just small ones and my lining at 7mm. I Left really disappointed but hoped it was just taking my body a little longer.
I went back for another scan on cd 16 which showed nothing on the left ovary but 2 on the right at 13mm and 15mm. She said she actually could get the larger one measuring at 17mm if she used the largest diameter whatever that meant. My lining was better at 10mm too so I had a little more hope.
She said she thought I should trigger on thurs morning. I decided I would wait until I started my lh surge just to make sure it wasn't too early to trigger as I wouldn't be haing another scan.
Thurs morning I started getting my surge at around 10am so my friend C met me at work and gave me the trigger at 11am! I started getting some o cramps that afternoon but they really picked up the next evening. We bd the night of the trigger, the morning after the trigger and the night after the trigger and Im pretty sure I o'ed bang on 36-39 hours post trigger, textbook or what!! Which means we bd'ed before and right on o time. My temp was up this morn and my o pain had completely gone.
Up until when C triggered me, apart from my sister I haven't shared anything about this cycle with anyone and it's made a huge difference. I haven't been thinking about it every second of every day, I've been nice and relaxed and it's felt much better.
I'm not having a post O scan as I'll only worry and stress over what I cannot change. I unfortunately can't get out of the early testing as I'm testing the trigger out but that's ok, I won't worry too much about the whole testing experience as I know the hcg is there from the trigger.
So, if we have concieved this cycle, baby's edd will be 26 July, our one year wedding anniversary!! To me, this cycle is meant to be
I tested out my trigger, that was more stressful towards the end than i anticipated! The line had gone by 8dpo/9dpt. Then i noticed there was a very very faint line on the 9dpo/10dpt evening tests. I was getting hopeful but at the same time i was pretty sure it was left over trigger just showing up in my evening urine. I also tried a frer on 9dpo/10dpt and this showed a very faint line, more obvious thant the cheapie test. I used another frer the next morning, 10dpo/11dpt - this one was marginally darker but not enough to really notice it. At that point part of me was thinking at least there is a line, theres still hope, the other part was thinking its way too faint at this stage to be getting to a bfp.
I had one cheapie left at this point, so decided to use this that evening. Straight away i could see a line appearing!! Once it dried it was still there. I rang my sister and she talked me into dipping a frer - the line on that was MUCH darker than the morning one!!! I still didnt want to get my hopes up incase it was darker because i used evening urine again, but i was more confident i may be in with a chance. I couldnt sleep all night, kept dreaming of testing, kept waking and worrying i was going to be disappointed and Aaron kept waking up too.
I couldnt hold my bladder any more by 7.40am so used my frer. At first it didnt look like there was any line appearing, but after a few minutes it was there, and darker than the night before!!!
I went back to bed and waited for dh to wake, finally he did lol and was very pleased when i showed him my tests!! We did it!!!
I also added in progesterone suppositories this cycle so im sure that helped, my temps were much better post o too.
I must admit, there is a very small part of me that is worried the trigger is playing tricks, but i know thats very very unlikely now the tests are getting darker. But now, i need to relax and not worry. I need to enjoy this pregnancy as bubba#3 is likely our last!!
Sister had her 12 week scan a few days ago and everything was looking great! Will be so nice getting to do this together! And C had an early scan a couple of weeks ago and all was looking good for her too!
I want time to go quicker!!! I hate this waiting part of pregnancy.
Ive got an early scan next Friday, ill b 6 weeks so i hope we see something. It is very early i know, but my main reason is to see how many are in there!! After my trigger shot i guess there is a small chance of twins as i did have two follicles. Although i feel like there is only one!
After that ill probably have another private scan at 9 weeks and then my 12 week nhs one. Im trying to get though 'mini milestones' like i did with ds2, that helps get through the days!!
I will then have my first midwife appointment a week later at 7 weeks. It is at the same centre as with Ds2, i hope i have the same midwife as she was very nice. I cant wait to do all that again, i have such fond memories from before!
We told all the family who are very happy for us, and i have told a few close friends at work. It going to be great being on maternity leave with my sister and C! Im really hoping to take a year off as this will be our last baby, am going to make the most of every second.
Aaron hd his third birthday last weekend, got thoroughly spoilt as usual!! Cant believe he is three! And then Kieran wil be 2 in march!
It will be nicer having a larger age gap this time round, it was hard work before. Plus the boys will both be at school so ill be able to 'sleep when the baby sleeps'.
So far my main symptom is that horrible tiredness!! Although thats not helped by Ds1 waking up all night. Ive had a small amount of heartburn and slightly tender breasts, but no sickness like before i im thinking its another little boy
I really dont mind what we have again, i just want a baby and am just so grateful to be pg again
I had my midwife appointment on Friday, was disappointed slightly as it wasn't the same midwife I had with ds2. She was ok, but a little too serious for my liking, trouble cracking a smile!!
Anyway, it was all paperwork, nothing major. I got a ll my free packs (forgot about that perk!) and she tested my urine which was clear. Bp was ok too.
When she rebooked me for my 16 week appointment I found out that my old midwife does Monday's so I purposely made sure I got her yay! Really pleased about that
I've had nausea appear the last couple of says, at around 10am it was bad, I kept heaving! Once I ate it went. Wonder if this means it's a girl this time? Other symptoms, very tired, increased urination (2-3 toilet breaks a night!) and tender boobs.
I have my scan friday - ill be 8 weeks - I'm feeling very nervous about that. Trying to stay positive though. There's so reason to worry as I've had two successful pregnancies since my m/c in 2007. Im on the progesterone too so that's another reason to stay positive!
My sister hits the 17 week mark this week! That has gone so quick. It only seems like yesterday I was writing in here about her going for early scans etc. i can't remember if I mentioned in my last post but she had a scan when I had my 6 week one as she'd had a car accident and everything looked great thank goodness. They put it in 4d for her too which was great! I'm definitely having a 4d scan this time.
We saw Ds1 in his school Christmas play today, he was so so cute! He was a little king, I've never been so proud
Well, actually it should be 9 weeks as I realised why I'm measuring a day behind at my scans. I o'ed shortly after midnight, not during the day as ff puts it so that puts me back a day. I'll keep it the same for arguments sake tho lol!
Talking of scans, i had my follow up u/s last week at 8 weeks (7w6d!!), all looked great! Baby measuring spot on and had a good hb of 162bpm, I'm so relieved!!
It feels really good to be at the 9 week mark now, I have relaxed a lot more plus I had a little peek at work today on our scanner and baby was moving!!
I've been manically rushing around the past couple of days getting all my Christmas shopping. I'm nearly done. I got sister a lovely teddy Moses basket and a baby playmat/gym! I'm also going to make her a nappy cake, not sure how that will turn out as its my first attempt! Quite looking forward to doing it though.
We have spent loads on the boys, got them their castle as their main present. I can't wait to see them open them up!! I'm going to let Aaron sleep in our bed Christmas eve night so we can wake up together Christmas morning. Dh is on night shifts so he will miss out
We have everyone at ours Christmas day, 13 including the kids!!
Ok so I'm now going by what the scans measure me at - the one day behind I mentioned about previously. Something very silly lol but a day makes all the difference to me and I want to be as accurate as I can!
Christmas day went well, better organised than I thought it would be! The boys were so tired after a few late nights and lots of presents. Am trying to get them into a routine again now it's all done with. I took all the decs and tree down yesterday as I was so fed up with the house looking a mess lol!
Me and dh aren't doing anything for the new year, will just stay in. I'll probably do us some nice food and we will watch films
I'm going to pop out later to buy my first baby item . I wasnt going to get anything this early but a lovely baby glider/swing has come up half price in the sale and I have been looking at it the last few months! Mum is actually going to pay for it for me, as I have most of the stuff I need already this is a little luxury I would like!
Thought I should start making my list of things I need too. Obviously if it's a girl there will be a replacement of most of my boy things, but for now I will list just the things I need/want regardless of sex.
Carrycot for double buggy
Moses basket (maybe will be having bil and gf's one as baby H has outgrown)
