Just when I think that I am getting things figured out, something weird happens. My temp went down this morning. I was feeling really cold all night, though so that could have been why. I just wish I could know 100% if I ovulated already or not. We were able to BD last night, so if I haven't already O'd, that would be o.k. as well, I just want to know. I didn't do OPKs last month and wished that I had and I didn't do them this month and now I wish that I had. I'll just have to see what happens. I still have the pain when I breathe in. I can't decide if I should try to go to the urgent care place tonight or not. Maybe I'll just see if it gets better over the weekend. If not, I can go to urgent care on Tuesday or something. I hope it just goes away.
Wow! It's been a really long time since I posted here! I've been lazy! Things have been so busy for me. I am excited that next week I will be signing up for my fall classes and they will be my last 4 classes! Yea!!! That's a great feeling. Well, let's see what has happened TTC related since I last posted. My temps have looked wonderful. They were going up and up and up, and they are still high. I had my CD 21 test and my progesterone came back at 13! A major improvement over 1.6 last time! The doctor said it's still not quite where she would like it to be, but we are on the right track. She is calling in the same dose for next time. When I look at my charts, my hopes go way up. I have NEVER had an LP this long before or a chart that looked so normal before. It is exciting. But, I have had some cramps the last few days and I am getting some creamy CM like I always get before AF. So, I am sure she will be here soon- probably this weekend. But, I am at least happy that my body for the very first time is doing what it is supposed to do. I am at least 14 DPO today, so that's a great LP even if AF shows today. We finally finished our floors and I think they look great! We have a busy weekend planned, so that's good. If I get AF it might take my mind off of my dissappointment and cramps. Well, I'll try not to be such a stranger. I have to catch up on everybody else's journals now. Later!
So much has happened since that last post a few days ago! Even though I was having cramps and was sure that AF was at my door, my temps were looking so good that I just decided to use an old test I had to put my mind at ease. I was completely expecting it to be negative, but I got a BFP!!!! I bought 3 more tests and took one and it was positive as well. I called my doctor and she said the HPTs are as accurate as their tests, so I didn't need to go in for a blood test or anything. She asked about my LMP and based my EDD on that. I am due Feb. 14! Valentine's Day! That is so cool! I am still getting some cramps, but I have heard of that happening to a lot of people. I had some sickness. I haven't actually thrown up, but I have been sick to my stomach. My nipples hurt so bad when anything (like my shirt) touches them. I have also been EXTREMELY tired. I have no energy right now. But, I don't want to complain much about my symptoms because we have been wanting this for so long. We are so excited. It was great to get to call our family and tell them the good news!
Time is going by so slowly for me! I am so anxious for my first appointment and it seems so far away! I feel like February will NEVER get here, but I'm sure time will start flying by for me soon. It's just too early to do any baby stuff, so maybe in a few months when we start on the nursery and picking names and shopping for maternity clothes and baby stuff, it will go by too fast! Anyway, I really want to print out all of my journal so that I can make a notebook, but we need to buy some more printer paper and I keep forgetting. I'll try to do it this weekend. I will probably just bump up my journal every now and then so that I don't lose it before I can print it. I have started a pregnancy journal on another site, so I hope to put that one in the notebook too when it is completed in 9 months. I am wishing the best for everybody!
