    Default Disneykat's TTC journal

    So here is the deal. DH and I talked at the beginning of December that yes, we'd start TTC. December was an odball month because we were in Charlotte and then I whacked my head on the garage door (long story, but it was pretty dumb/fuinny) and cracked a rib in the "fall". OY!!! So I figured my body would be thrown off as a result. It must have been as AF came to visit 2 weeks later.

    Fast forward to Jan 1st. We had friends over, I had EWCM for 2 days (starting 12/30) and we BD'ed 4 days straight. I felt what i thought was O pain. We probably tried too hard because I AF started showing up late on 1/15. I was so hopeful that I tried to pass it off as implantation bleeding....but by 1/16...full force.

    I am a 28-29 cycle day person. I am not temping or using OPK's. I probably should be. At the same time, I don't want to stress myself out. I've done that enough already. So if nothing happens by this cycle. I'll resort to OPK's. I'll temp as a "last resort" so to speak. I'm so worried that temping will just make me anxious. Not that it does for EVERYONE but I know my emotions. I'll think about it non stop, and probably be too stressed to conceive.

    Ok for this cycle, my possible fertile window was 1/27-1/31. DH and I BD'ed late on the 25th before I left for CA for the weekend. I checked my CM all weekend and did not get EWCM until the night I came home on 1/29. We BD'ed then. I figured "every other night"...well, Weds comes and goes, and we BD'ed last night.

    I am so not counting on anything happening this cycle, but if it did. I think it would be fun to tell the family in PA when we go out for Chinese New Year. Not going to keep my hopes up though.

    Found out that a friend of mine who got married 2 weeks after we did is now pg. They were not actively trying. At least i do not think they were. YAY for her (with a twinge of jealousy from me...so wrong to feel this way...)

    Welp, it's kind of funny. here are days right now that i think...impossible, no way we are going to be og. Then other days I think....hhhhhmmmm.

    For the last few days I've been really REALLy irritable. It happens some months worse than others with PMS. This month..whoa. Tuesday was bad and even though I found humor in some stuff on TV, it was like a thin layer of happiness that the irritability was hiding under, just waiting to come out.

    I snapped at a good friend of ours because he was complaining about the cold. I mean really.......

    Anyway my sister asked if i was pregnant. I said no. AF is due Mon or Tuesday. DH is still holding out hope. I don't blame him though.

    At the same time, I need to build up some thick skin so i am not dissappointed if af visits.

    Jumbled thoughts....sorry

    Since TTC my cycle symptoms have been oddball. The last cycle i didn't get sore bb's until about 5 days before..or so. This cycle...the pain started to show up yesterday!!! WTH? It's so weird. I always have pain and tenderness at least a week before. So weird.

    On to Cycle # 3 as I started last night. I'm going to stock up on OPK's now. I hate that people I know (sister, SIL and friend) can just think about it and boom, pregnant, though I can't complain.....we haven't been trying long, and this last cycle didn't afford us a great deal of opportunities, but it would be nice to know WHEN i am O'ing being that i am not temping.


    Well, at least i know the irritability was def PMS

    Funny story;

    About 2 weeks ago, DH and I were driving to the hospital to see a co-worker of his who suffered a stroke. I had called my sister along the way and asked to speak to my 4 y.o niece. She asked me if I was sitting or standing and when I told her sitting she asked if she could hear my cats (I let them purr on the phone and she loves that). I told her I was in the car so she could not hear them. She asked where we were going and i said "To the hospital to visit a friend." Her response was soooo funny. She said "(GASP) Are yu going to have a baby Auntie Katie?"

    This sparked a conversation about what we should name our baby if we had a girl. She said "Allison" And of we had a boy? "Michael"

    Ironically, one of my volunteer teachers at work (I am a youth minister) passed away suddenly last week (Feb 13th) at the age of 44, his name? Michael. A sign? i dunno.

    When DH and I first started talking about having kids we initially picked the name Michael for a boy, but changed it to Lucas about 3-4 months ago.....who knows.

    This volunteer was a great guy and it was such a shock to get the news. He will be greatly missed.

    Our trying is still going on, but with being gone for the weekend and all the stuff surrounding Mike's death (He had 2 kids age 13 and 15, and 13 8th graders in his CCD class that I have had to tend to) I have not gotten any OPK's.....I figure, just go with it this month....get on the OPK schedule next month. I've been emotionally drained since last Thurs.

    I hate seeing my "kids" hurt.

    I am expecting AF next week (Friday to be exact) and still, though I know it likely did nto happen this cycle, I am holding out hope. Just like I do every month. No real symptoms which would make me think it's a possibility. No sore bb's, some irritability, and the only symptom I could even remotely connect to it is that while I'm not feeling extremely exhausted, I am pretty wiped out by the end of each night, falling asleep pretty quickly.

    I was watching TV the other night and just all of a sudden got that deep down feeling like "yea, it happened this month." But I kinda brushed that off because for the 4th time in 3 weeks, we found out another friend is pregnant. We have no right to be upset about it, as we have not really been trying long at all. But when this person said "Both of our kids were surprises and I think I would not have wanted a second child if we really had to "try"...." DH was so mad about that comment. We know it will happen when it's meant to happen, but that comment was like a kick in the gut. Not a hard kick, but a kick none the less.

    Not much to really report. My birthday is Tuesday and DH mentioned going to Cheesecake factory. YAY!!!

    It's kind of funny to dig this one up.

    DH and I were blessed with the most beautiful baby girl on Nov 9th 2007 and I can't beluieve my baby will be 1 in 2 weeks. It just does not seem possible.

    Reading my old entries, I find it so odd that amidst alot of personal stress (death of a friend,etc, we conceived our beautiful girl.

    We're trying again. This was the first cycle we were actively trying. I think trying too hard. But trying none the less. AF showed up on October 20th, so here we go again!!!!!
