!!!!!!! Yippee!!! Wahoo!!! Believe it!Carfreemama
, your light spirit is inspiring! I love the idea of the positive changes being a way of taking care of yourself, BFP or not. And, I think it's very natural to feel vulnerable when you want something so much.Beachlover
, glad that your bleeding is over, and I hope you start to heal and feel comforted soon.
It is sooo hard to pass those milestones without the what-ifs.Halifax40
, sorry you're feeling worried!
I too like the idea of scheduling an additional ultrasound so you can hear the reassuring sound of that heartbeat.Karen1968
, yay for icky vomitrocious morning sickness! What a good good sign. Waturmama
, hope your experiments with OPKs are going well. I just started using them myself recently, and I notice sometimes they jibe with FF (and my body), sometimes they don't, and I have no explanation for it.
My acupuncturist smiles patiently at me when I discuss OPKs (I can tell she trusts my chart far more). And, I can really relate to that fear of fatigue! :yawning I always tell myself, I may have had more energy in my 30s, but I was a wimp! After 9 years of heavy lifting, sleep deprivation, games of tag, etc. I know my well of maternal strength is deep.AFM,
we had a blast with our TTC lollapalooza last week (TTC BD is the absolute best).
OPK and FF and all my signs aligned perfectly this week, and our timing could not have been better. I felt so incredibly in tune with my body and very empowered. It was also very healing... when my marriage to XH ended, I had a 2yo DD and was deeply longing for another baby (and XH never wanted more than one child anyway). I never thought I would get this second chance, so circling back to TTC feels miraculous and sacred and poetic.
So, I O'd on Friday and now I'm 4 DPO and already feel a bit pregnant. Could just be the usual luteal-phase progesterone talking, but today I had tingly boobs and a bit of uterine cramping and super-yawniness a the end of the day. I always have very early symptoms, so I suspect I'll know one way or another before the 2ww is up. Tonight we go to celebrate my SIL's birthday, and I feel a bit self-conscious about conspicuously abstaining from drinking, especially as SIL and BIL have been struggling with infertility for the past few years,
and I want to be sensitive to that.
