I've been taking my temp later in the day to see if I might have Wilson's Temperature Syndrome. A friend told me about it and lent me her book. Basically the theory is that if having a very high temp is very bad, and having a very low temp is bad, then it makes sense for a little high and a little low is bad too. I have a low temp. This may effect my thyroid system which of course can lead to infertility, weight gain, depression, hair loss, fatigue, pms, anxiety, decreased memory and concentration, low motivation and ambition, constipation, insomnia, slow healing, easily bruised, and more.... sounds just like me. There may be herbal remedies.
One more thing to obsess over.
I hope to have the courage to call and confirm the proper people received my application on monday. Hope they did and I have a chance this month...
Well I havn't called the hospital, I guess it won't make any difference anyways. I was wondering why my chart is different this month. My temps have stayed low but today i had a slight jump so I guess i've o'd. My bb's have been sore and heavy for a few days though, its weird because that usually starts at 7dpo. I'm glad our timing was perfect, not that it has given me a bfp before. Ok, i'm really not that negative and i'm a little excited again.
I've been busy with my 50 or so tomato plants... yup I planted a ton, hoping to sell some at our garage sale for a buck, and to use. I still don't know which plant is which. Next year i'm going to start growing them around new years, they grow so slow in the beginning! Yes i'm growing them indoors in the window.
Thinking about going to see my parents soon for a visit and to do my taxes. I've also not seen my bff since last May. We have had a hard time talking for awhile. We both love each other but this happens every 5 years or so, I think i'm ready to swallow my pride and ask her to come visit. She won't come here, but it is easier for me to go there. Who knows, I got pregnant while I was visiting her once (well I was in the 2ww).
Sigh. It would be healthy though, we all need our friends eh?
Love ya girl.
Having a nice long weekend home with my family. Its cold and VERY windy. Our lilac tree uprooted itself in the front yard. :( oh well, at least none of the TALL cedar trees fell on the house!
I had dreams all night of me poas and getting positives. I well that is when I finally fell asleep around 4am. Dh was sweet, kept things quiet until 10:30 and brought me coffee.
My bb's have been sore but today I think they are not as sore.
I keep taking my temp and I think I have wilson's temperature syndrome. Its one more thing to obsess over.
I've had a low grade fever the past three days now. Wierd, I don't feel sick and its cold outside. I could obsess that my temp is up but my bbt is normal actually stagnant at the same temp for 5 days now. I wonder if my thermometer is busted, I'll have to use my new one and take the old one downstairs. I don't think thats it but worth a try.
I was planning on going up to visit family today but its not working out. Maybe next week. No rush. Dh was off work at lunch so we had a nice afternoon together. Tonight is homemade wings and potato skins. Talk about heart attack on a plate.
ps, my bb's are still heavy but thats normal for me....
I worked yesterday with Dh. We are cleaning the penthouse of the new Fairmont building in Vancouver. We walked outside to the nearest foodcourt for lunch and saw THE BARENAKED LADIES!!!! I was excited, thinking hmmm what can I say but didnt and just walked past them :lol:
DH has seen a few celebs there. One funny thing I thought hmmm Wish I had a video camera and I could send it in to TMZ LOLOL
its 11dpo today, still hoping for a miracle. I can't believe I still hope after all of this time.
Pup is crying for me to take him to the dog park. Little suck. Guess I better getmoving.
I was sad to get a low temp on sunday, and then cramps followed by af. I got a bit of hopes up with my heavy bb's this month. Oh well.
I planted more onions and garlic today, and started a carrot patch too. Dh agreed to double the size of last years garden :)
Wish my womb would be as fertile as my garden...........
We are going to a sing-along tonight! Friends are having us over with some others (don't know who yet) that can play instruments and we are in the clapping section LOL Its also an appy night so I made something for the first time. I peeled several crabs that I caught last summer and made hot crab dip! Its not baked yet, hope it's good.
Yesterday was my first appointment to see a councillor/therapist. She was very nice and asked me alot of questions. She was very sympathetic. We didn't talk much about infertility, more about my personality and trauma that I faced a few years ago. I think she will be able to help me. It is very close to home which is great too.
Its saturday and I'll be going to visit my family up north on Monday... If I can figure out how to pay for gas,,, but thats what visa is for right?
Better get that dip in the oven.
ps, I calculated an edd for this month :eyeroll: and its my bd next year. Just looks neat on the screen.
at my parents for a visit. fighting a cold and loosing, not too bad but sore throat. Brought pup with me and I just took him to the river... he likes wading in the water but still won't swim. Maybe i'll take him to the small lake by my sister's house and carry him in deep so he can swim.... maybe I should read up on 'how to get your dog to swim' lol
Mom is sick, had to go to emerg twice on sunday either food poisoning or bad stomach flu. She is still not feeling good. Great, now I just took a message for dad to please call the dr's office. I don't like that my parents are getting older. :(
PS, the crab dip was a HUGE success! It was the first thing to go at the party and someone asked me for the recipie :) It had about $30 worth of crab in it LOL I guess I'll have to catch lots more crab to keep me stalked for this dip :)
I'm having a nice rest. I feel calm and relaxed. Today i'm taking over a meal for a family friend who is moving in two weeks. They were a big help a few years ago when my parents needed their roof reshingled and helped us out.
I'm trying to do our taxes right now. I've done all of the earning part, thats easy. Now I need to enter our medical expenses which is a mess. Its hard to figure out with two different insurance plans etc.... hope we don't get audited again this year since i'm still dealing with last years....
I'm so proud of myself. I just filed our taxes............ and with one day to spare :) We are never on time even though I always get money back.... I'm so happy its done. Now I still have to reorganize last year's medical receipts for our audit but I have more confidence from how I did this years taxes.
I'm going home on Monday, I think that will be three weeks away, or is it two? not sure. Ya two I think.
