    ------------------

    We decided to try to concieve again. Dora just loves other babies and seems fascinated by them.
    But I am so nervous. There are so many things that could go wrong. Dora's pregnancy was very hard on me.

    I'm already thinking about what I'm going to do differently, what I need for the new baby, and how I will handle it. I'm not even pregnant yet. I'm afraid I'm setting myself up for a severe let-down every AF.
    I want to use bottles and pacifiers along with breastfeeding. I think that might make it easier on me. I have most everything I will need. Will will have to buy some boy clothes if we have a boy. I also want to get one of those bouncy chairs.

    I can't stop thinking that every little thing is a pg symptom! And I feel like they probably aren't. The first cycle is always the hardest. I am dreading 5 days from now.


    AF Symptoms: Irritability
    PG Symptoms: Cramping

    ------------------

    I decided to take a test last night just to see how this different brand worked. It was a BFN. Yet, I couldn't help but dig it out of the trash later. It had an evaporation line! Dunno if that means anything. I will probably test Saturday morning if AF is no show.


    AF Symptoms: Irritability
    PG Symptoms: Cramping
    HPT Test: Negative



    Updated: Thursday, May 29, 2008
    I tested many times after AF was due. I tested for a week. All came out negative. I was really getting tired of not knowing!

    AF. Finally! I'm actually glad she showed. I was tired of waiting. I just hope 38 days isn't my new cycle length and this was just a fluke!

    I'm fairly sure I O'ed around CD 20.


    Then again, last cycled I was sure I O'ed but didn't actually O for another week! But thanks to FF, I can keep track so I can learn my body's signs.
    I haven't really had a sex drive this cycle. And now I've got a cold.

    ------------------

    We've BD'ed (correctly) a lot this cycle. If we don't catch that eggy, then we just weren't meant to have a 2008 baby. We're doing our part. It's in God's hands now.


    Updated: Thursday, May 29, 2008
    AF actually showed up sooner than expected. But exactly 14 days DPO, which is normal. Sadly, we didn't catch the eggy this cycle. Onto cycle 3.

    Subject: Crazy cycle with a crazy end
    CD: 35 (of cycle 3)
    ------------------

    I was having these strange cravings for beef following my last cycle. Bob was having bp problems, so I decided to lay off the TTC for this cycle. I even made sure not to BD on the day I thought I was ovulating. About a week after ovulation, I started craving olives. I was so tired, cramping, and pissy! Af was definitely on her way. I took a test a few days before she was due just to be sure. I had a white indent line. A super negative! As the days progressed, and I felt AF get closer, I got more and more depressed even though it had been my choice. On the day AF was due, my temp dropped and I started spotting. I guess that was the end of that cycle.


    But then the spotting stopped and the cramping got worse. But I just knew AF was still on her way. I decided if she didn't come by Saturday morning, I would test that afternoon. I knew it would be negative, but I still held my breath. As the pink went across the screen, the control line showed and nothing else. My heart sank. But then, some else slowly started to show. The pregnancy line! As I wanted it got darker... and darker... Definitely not my imagination, and definitely not an evap line!


    My journey through TTC has ended and my third pregnancy has begun!!!



    Due January 30, 2009!!!

    Symptoms:
    Cramping♥Decreased Appetite♥Dizziness♥Fatigue♥Mood Swings♥Morning Sickness♥
    ------------------

    My first day of work with all the pregnancy symptoms. Ugh.
    I wanted to pass out flyers for some community service hours. DH had work to do, so I had to walk. I thought I'd do pretty well. I only got maybe 40 out of 109 houses done. I had to walk home suddenly when I started getting dizzy and really tired.


    I started getting m/s this afternoon. In a way, it feels good. I never had true m/s with my first, so I feel like it's a good sign. But it still sucks.

    The m/s is getting worse. I'm also getting aversions. It seems to be worse after work when I don't have food for a couple of hours. Even with Dora, the symptoms didn't start this early.

    I've had no m/s today. No cramping. The symptoms seem to be dying down. No matter how I try to reassure myself, I'm a bit worried. I know now that over worrying won't do anyone any good. It won't save the baby. The first few weeks are just so stressful.

    I am soooo friggin' tired. I think this is a bit earlier than my last pregnancy.


    Had my last day of work as well. It was rough. The kids were crazy and wouldn't listen. Then I was holding back tears the entire day.

    ------------------
    What in the heck was that?? I was bent way over at my computer and had a strong phantom kick just above my pubic bone. I just froze because it honestly didn't feel like a phantom kick, but a real kick. Is it possible that I'm further along than 5 weeks? I don't think it is... But that was very strange... I pushed a bit and it did another faint phantom kick... But I could only get it to do it once. This is impossible. It's gotta be gas.


    Updated:
    Y'know. Looking at my TTC chart, it's impossible for me to be more than 5 weeks. Must just be gas!

    So, the power went out Sunday due to a bad storm. We stayed at MIL's that night. Slept on a rock cot! UGH.


    Yesterday, we tried to go swimming, but didn't get to! I want to try again today. Maybe I can squeeze it outta hubby.


    Also, I took a good look at my calendar and am sending myself back a day. Instead of 5,5. I'm 5,4.

    I am so hungry. I need to eat enough for 3 people it seems. But it's hard to take that first bite. I just feel so sick. I have to eat small portions then go back for seconds and thirds!


    I've actually had heart burn for a week now. Bad. I have to eat tums before I go to bed. Then eat one each time I wake up.

    I think the m/s is starting to kick in. I tried to hold it back by eating and taking tums. Didn't work. Threw up in the car on the way to BIL's then on the way to a restaurant. On the bright side, I always felt better right after.

    ------------------
    The m/s is holding pretty steady. I actually felt pretty good for the middle of the day yesterday. Actually wanted to eat and not everything sounded terrible. That night though, I couldn't lay down without gagging. At 7:30, Dora woke up and I put her back to sleep. But I was so sick, I couldn't. So, I stayed up until 9:30 and went back to sleep. I hadn't gotten to sleep until 2am that night. I really just wanted to sleep all day, but alas... lol


    When I went to get my proof of pregnancy, my bp was 138/80. Not great. Going to be keeping an eye on it from now on. Could mean something, could mean nothing!

    Finally! I might see the light. I'm hoping the further I get into the second trimester, the less m/s I will have. I'm still pretty sick some days.

    I've really blown up like a cow. It seems I'm carrying this baby in my ***.

    I still don't have my insurance! I'm getting really itchy to see this baby!

    So, I took my 16 week belly picture today and was... amazed at the change. I shrunk. What?! I'm almost tempted to take a test just to make sure it's not all in my head! All I have energy to do is sit around most of the day. I don't eat a lot, but enough considering my lack of physical movement. Seriously, I should have gained like 20lbs by now based on my lack of activity.

    Noon on Wednesday, I was suddenly so weak, I couldn't get off the couch. I started to get confused and unable to speak coherently. After trying to get into doctors, I went to the ER Friday and found out I had a bladder infection.
    On a brighter note, I think I popped! Witness! And I'm still slowly losing weight, so it's all baby!

    I've been having this strange discharge. It started off like white gobs of Elmer's glue. I was thinking it was just built up discharge. I had some yesterday that looked like it had some dried blood. I will have to talk to my doctor about it.

    Was awesome! The clinic was like a fun house. There were so many doors and nurses would just randomly pop out of them. The staff was sooo nice! I feel comfortable there.

    Much to my happy surprise, I got both a small u/s and a doppler! I cried both times. I was so happy!

    It's a boy. Pretty obvious. I was amazed how laid back he seemed to be compared to Dora.

    My last entry in the second trimester! Soon, I'll be in the homestretch!

    Last night, I felt Edin have hiccups for the first time! So cute!

    For the past week, I've been having bad insomnia.

    I've also started to feel pregnant (and look noticably pregnant!). I'm just starting to run out of room and I can feel Edin brushing the bottom ribs.

    So, all of a sudden, I couldn't get enough oxygen. I asked DH to close the windows and turn on the air conditioner, 'cause cooling off usually helps. I don't think he understood that I seriously wasn't getting enough air. We were arguing about something, and I was like... screw it. I'm not wasting air arguing. I suddenly get so sick from the lack of air, I start vomiting.

    I hold it in just long enough to projectile all over the toilet. And then pee on myself. I think that's when he realized I wasn't being dramatic.

    On the upside, I could breath after emptying my stomach. Yay me.

    I told my doc that the baby is running out of room already. He said, "Nah. Not already!" He's not in my body.

    My ribs hurt. They constantly burn. I think it's my rib cage expanding so Edin will fit in there. Or worse case, it's from Edin already not fitting in there. But, I already have to sit straight or lay down to relieve the crowding. I still have 3 months left for him to get bigger.

    Dh's family have big babies. Dh and his brother were 10lbs. Their cousin was 12lbs. See why I worry?

    I'm 29 weeks. I just went to the bathroom and found blood in my panties. When I wiped, there was just a bit of brown on the tp.

    The same exact thing happened when I was 29 weeks with DD.

    I just thought that was an odd coincidence.
