First things first Thank you all for commenting in my last post and for understanding why I am frightened and for just hearing me out. I know the natural instinct is to cheer and support, it’s certainly mine!, but I needed to say: this is awful and I don’t want false hope – and you … Continue reading

Makeover Monday (On Thursday!)

Makeover Monday (On Thursday!)

*scheduled this post on Monday and forgot about it. Figured I’ll leave it up. So, a million years ago (probably two) I said I was in the process of ‘making over’ my house. I wanted to do it as DIY as possible, and, keep the cost down, so it evolved over three years. Plus I was … Continue reading

10dpo – doesn’t look good

I didn’t post in the am since I needed time to process. I tried a digital in the am and got ‘not pregnant’ – not a deal breaker since in my experience, digis are not as sensitive. So at 5 am I drove off, bought more tests and got this: I’m blogging off my phone, … Continue reading

BFP?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Pls look at pix

BFP?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Pls look at pix

OH. My God. I am freaking out. I THINK this may be a BFP. If it’s not I am seriously suing FRER for making me crazy with an evap. Like for real, I will cry in court. Because I cannot do this much longer. I am slowly but surely unraveling and all of this is … Continue reading

CELEBRATION – BFP

I had planned to tell DH after dinner. But when he came home, all sweaty and innocent from his bike ride, I thought: I have to tell him NOW! Earlier in the day I had taken Runkie, our 15 yr old shih tzu, to his specialist. Crazily, his oedema and cataracts are actually getting better … Continue reading

Maybe Baby? I’m going a teensy, weensy bit crazy. 9DPO is so close. So freaking close. I was commenting on LadyLove & BabyDust last night. She’s 12 DPO and calling it a cycle. I totally get that because by day 12, I consider myself 95% out of the running and by day 13 I’m 110% done. She … Continue reading

Round and around we go Yesterday afternoon I started feeling heavy cramps and low backache. The cramps started off light enough, more “plucky” than anything and then they progressed to full on period cramps, of the hurty variety. I had been making lentil soup for dinner, but just for precaution, I went and laid down … Continue reading

This is going to be a long post because I’m anxious I apologize in advance :-). I hate ‘modified bed rest’ I’m glad yesterday was over, and I’m resolving not to spend another day feeling like that again. I felt restless, but was saving my big trip out of the house for a visit with … Continue reading

Today, the soporific effects of progesterone have fully kicked in. I haven’t pooped for four days despite a regimen of kefir, probiotics, magnesium citrate and stool softener. The good thing is, I’m so mellow from my P, I don’t care. In fact as soon as I am done posting this, I’ll take a nap. Since … Continue reading

Do you think I have enough pregnancy tests? Dollar Store Haul     Other blogs bring you Sephora hauls. Not me. Expecting to be Expecting dares to bore you with Dollar Store crap. My clinic does not want you doing anything at all for at least 48 hours and then modified bed rest/ low activity until … Continue reading
