Today marked my LONG wait and just over two weeks since I was confirmed pregnant. We went in this morning and they took my blood pressure and weight prior to walking me in. This was another vaginal ultrasound (like I'm used to) since it's so early. My blood pressure was surprisingly normal and I'm still… Continue reading 6w1d and our first ultrasound
The spotting had continued since Monday and man, it sucks. I took a pregnancy test last night again and was worried bc the one of the lines seemed light. Recently, I've been getting the hours between 1-4 am to myself, blissfully awake with only the internet to keep me entertained. So I've read about everything… Continue reading How many sticks does it take?
On Tuesday, at 9:00 AM, I got my fertilization report of our babies. The immature egg didn't mature, the two that were immediately useless were useless, but FIVE of our SIX mature eggs fertilized normally. I then had to wait until Thursday for our Day 3 update, all while keeping in mind the decisions that… Continue reading Changing plans and finding peace
If I've been around your children for any significant portion of time, I assume you've heard me singing "I love eggs, from my head down to my legs...." This commercial apparently resonated with me a bit too much because it's constantly stuck in my head. I thought it was something everyone knew, but I've gotten more… Continue reading I ❤ Eggs
I was trying to decide where we were going to eat last night and I came across the word lamb which reminded me of my severe disdain for silent letters. They're pointless and just make the English language harder for people. I also don't like slurs, but that's no surprise to anyone who knows me.… Continue reading Silent letters, slurs, uncertainty, and other things I dislike!
This should just be called: Where were you when you learned about Crystal Meth? I had just tuned 10 (young for my grade) and was SUPER into 90s alternative, thanks to my older brother (and my impeccable musical taste). I had a knack (or an obsessive hobby) for memorizing lyrics of songs and always enjoyed… Continue reading I believe in the sand beneath my toes…
I ran out of needles last night for my Lupron. I should have known earlier, but I did the thing that Justin loves where I forget six things and remember them incrementally as I arrive home from the previous errand. It only happens when I'm on these damn drugs, so I think he does think… Continue reading Buying Needles Over the Counter (and other things that piss me off while on an excessive amount of hormones)
Not much to report. A fairly disappointing doctor's visit. They could spot three follicles on one side and 0 on the other. My estrogen was at 58 which was significantly lower than last time at this point. It's frustrating because I'm on more meds and have been doing only positive things to help increase my… Continue reading Bloodwork & US update
Today, I went to see DRW and M for my baseline ultrasound. I always feel entirely too cheery for their first appointment at 7:00 AM. I like to schedule them as early as possible so that they don't interfere with my workday. I open their office door with a huge "good morning" and - without… Continue reading Here I go again (and other lessons from the famed musical group Whitesnake)
For those of you who are well-versed in my musical taste, you're well aware that I generally despise Coldplay. I find Chris Martin to be unbearable and their music to be unoriginally maudlin. I'll allow "Fix You" to be the exception. Unfortunately, I'm no longer pregnant. I went in early on Thursday, anxiously awaiting what… Continue reading Fix You
