Good Morning all Escher--
That whistling smiley is perfect for the 2ww. You are just a few days ahead of me. Anything that looks like implantation in your world?Max--
I had read that about x vs y sperm. Have you ever seen the "great sperm race" documentary? It's fascinating. At this point I don't care how many (within reason) or which gender, any healthy fetus or fetuses will do!Solejean-
- I usually test too early (10 dpo) but I'm pretty unrealistic and can always rationalize away a negative
. It's when I test later and get a BFN that I start losing hope.Max-
-Im sure we can all relate. I *have* to make myself think of it differently to keep from going crazy. I have to know that everything happens for a reason, and no matter what I would have done different, I'm still going to have to wait until it's the *right* egg, and the *right* sperm to meet my little one.Gelly--
How exciting! BUT I hope none of that even matters and that a BFP is just around the corner for you. At least you've been able to plan and keep your mind off this 2WW. I've been reading about home births, hypnobirthing and midwives for the last few weeks. Planning the birth of my not yet conceived child seems to take some anxiety out of the waiting. (we need a little straight jacket smiley)
I even found a home birth midwife that will do preconception consults, so Im entertaining that.QOTD--
Almost 2 years ago we got pregnant the very first time we tried (looking back now I have no idea how) and miscarried, but b/c it had happened so easily the first time I just assumed it would happen again right away. I wish I would have known then what an anomaly that was, and had taken more time to emotionally deal with that loss instead of just expecting to immediately replace it with joy. It really gave me false expectations and feels like it's made every failure since a little more painful. BUT I still have faith, and I'm going to keep plugging along. It's all we can do right?AFM--
Im still cramping. A lot. No fever or nausea, not really like menstrual cramps, but more like some sharp pains (mostly on the right side) and then a lot of pressure on my cervix.. They are off and on, seem to be worse in the early early morning, but then I'm so sore all day. I have no idea. This was the first month with the trigger, and I did have all kinds of follies. Maybe there's a traffic jam in the tubes? (i'm only half way kidding) Lucky for the long weekend as I've been able to just take it easy. Anyway, other than that time is passing fairly quickly, and I've had lots to keep my mind occupied.
Our sewer backed up AGAIN, and while DP couldn't smell anything, I guess the hCG gave me "the nose" because it's ALL I can smell. No water for three days, but I refuse to waste good sperm money to call a plumber over the holiday weekend. Priorities folks. We leave for Key West in 3 weeks, and I CANNOT wait, so I've been busy dreaming about that.
OH I forgot I meant to ask you about the progesterone test. FF says I'm 4DPO (but I think I ovulated overnight, so it could be 3DPO) and I'm trying to decide when to have the staff draw my lab for the test. I won't get the results until the next morning. So should I draw tomorrow? (4 or 5 DPO), get the results on Wednesday? Or hold off to draw until Wednesday? I never used to have short LP, but the last four cycles have been short SO I want to make sure I monitor it....
