That was unexpected.
Seems like the cheapies just aren't showing well enough.

Thank you love.gif

I am extremely paranoid about getting a late AF after all. Running to the bathroom to check every hour or so, because I still sometimes have those pains in my lower back and that feel exactly like impeding AF cramps. Those have been around since saturday.

Since my usual problem solving mode is getting info, I googled miscarriage statistics and now am determined to beat the 30% rate until week 5-6 when it drops to 10%. My doctor gave me an appointment for May 6th so then we can check whats happening on an US. I guess the fears will get better the longer it is past the AF date.

So, last night was really horrible, as my KD happily sent me the tracking info for the package o'sperm due (and needed) today, after shipping right at the 6pm UPS deadline. Well, I look at the tracking info he sent and it says "Next Day Air Saver, pick-up Wednesday 4/24, delivery Thursday 4/25" (as though he'd done the drop-off after the deadline, so they were counting the "next day" from today instead of yesterday). I emailed him and said (as gently/neutrally as I could, as I was actually FREAKING OUT) "it looks like it's not going to ship until tomorrow," to which he replied "I watched them put it on the truck, they said it would be there by 10:30am tomorrow." Well, the tracking all said it wouldn't arrive until Thursday. I feigned zen in my "oh, okay, guess we'll see what happens" response email, then cried a little, and went to bed, thinking that there was this month out. And, somehow, it felt disproportionately awful to screw up the timing the month I was insemming on my birthday.

(I love and trust my KD with the big stuff, but it definitely feels pretty sucky to be dependent on his punctuality and such in shipping matters, when I'm trying not to be overly controlling or naggy about this process.)

The package is now (without any explanation on the previous dates) on a truck for delivery today. 3pm, 10:30am, who knows, who cares. My birthday is officially saved!

Take good care of yourself, those first few days (weeks, really) can really mess with your mind. I think I only recently stopped checking for blood on the toilet tissue every time I used the bathroom. The best advice I have seen floating around here is to say "I am pregnant today." I know it isn't easy, but in hindsight it's really all you've got to hold onto. Oh, and I had weird, AF-ish cramps off and on probably through at least week 8. I hated it of course because it freaked me out, but again, in hindsight I can say that if you can take any consolation from it, your uterus is hard at work - and feeling it is totally normal. 

 

Fille - AH! OMG, I would have been flipping out! I hope you managed to get some sleep. Good luck today, and birthday.gif


My wife (30) and I (32) have been legally married since 2006. We are proud queer mamas to baby W, born 10/10/2013.

Congrats Friederikebouncy.gif! So happy for you - and still rooting for  everyone else on this board too!

 

Fille - I had a really similar experience with a mishap in shipping with my KD and felt exactly the same way - not wanting to be too controlling or nagging when he was basically doing a huge favor for us, but wishing I had been more firm with my reminders. I'm so glad the shipping worked out after all! Happy birthday!

Fille - Happy Birthday and good luck with the shipping!! That must have been such a stressful night. 

 

AFU - Jenny, could you please move me to taking a break. Temp dropped below cover line yesterday and AF should show up tonight or tomorrow for DW. I will probably start back up with insems sometime this summer but I will definitely be reading/cheering everyone along in the meantime!!

I am sorry Darcy. Take good care of yourself and DP during the break.

Fille - how did your birthday insem go?

Sphinxy, pokey; thank you for calming my paranoia about the crampy feelings. And everybody else, thank you again for the well wishes and the smiley parades.

DP and I had a very turbulent evening yesterday, where we first tallied up the costs of all the baby stuff we need and holy, it was a lot (though maybe we won't need 4 different carriers), then had her officially propose to me while I was lying in bed in my jammies and then ended in a tearful breakdown on her side just one hour later, because what if everything changes and our life could be over with a kid and whatnot. I love our particular brand of crazy.

Darcy: I'm sorry that it doesn't look like this cycle worked. How are you and your DW feeling? Are you both feeling good (or at least ok) about switching back to you for the next attempt? How are you feeling about taking the little break before trying again?

Friederike: That sounds like quite an evening! We spent very little on baby stuff, since we got almost everything we needed as gifts, hand-me-downs, or used. It's hard to imagine everything changing.

Jenny, can you move me to the TWW? I successfully insemmed yesterday afternoon, after all my shipping angst. Now it's just time to wait and see.

I had a very unconvincing temp rise this morning, but I do think I probably O'd yesterday. We'll see what FF thinks in a few days. My chart:



(Jenny, if you want to link this above as well, that would be great.)

I'm hoping to hold off testing until May 8, when my period will actually be late. Willpower is not my strong suit, so we'll see how that goes....

Fille  Congrats on the insem. Best wishes in the TWW. 

 

Friederikejoy.gif YEAH !! joy.gifYEAHjoy.gif YEAHjoy.gif YEAAAAAAAHHH!!!! joy.gif Very happy news! Congrats!!

 

 

Darcy So sorry to hear of the impending AF. You all sure gave it a good shot! I can understand wanting to take a little hiatus. Enjoy the time off and start up again when you and DP (and your wallet) are refreshed.

 

AFM, No real news to report. I truly have no obvious pregnancy symptoms. My breasts were pretty sore the last 2 days but they feel quite fine now. I am attributing that to the trigger. Hopefully the trigger will be all gone this evening, 8 dpo. I ordered some cheap but sensitive sticks off the www. If they come today I may POAS just to see that the trigger is indeed gone. I got a text from a colleague Monday showing me the picture of her 13 week US....twins! I am very happy for her but of course being human I am a little jealous.

Fille  Congrats on the insem &b est wishes in the TWW!  The link you posted is just to a thumbnail version of your chart linked at mothering -- if you want to post the whole link, I'll attach it to the chart icon that I added next to your name.  It would be lovely if you'd like to thread keep this coming month.  :-)

 

 

Friederike: Sounds like you guys had a stressful night last night -- babies don't really need that much stuff.  With gifts, thrift stores and consignment, you can really get a bundle of stuff for very little money.  I have nearly everything I will need and I think I've spent about 200.00.  People also tend to loan out or give away lots of stuff for free -- just put the word out.  Usually, once they are done having kids, they are more than eager to de-clutter.

fille How was the rest of your birthday? Did you have a nice celebration?

KWPX just one week to go. Fingers crossed for good symptoms.

Jenny just 200? For real? I am impressed. We had almost ten times that sum and that is already buying loads of things used. The jogging stroller / bike trailer that we want (Chariot) alone goes for 400€ used. Add carseat (new), a diaper stash and carriers, plus adoption fees and it just adds up. I hope we get some free stuff. None of our friends have children though. Okay one does, but he lives in Finland. Two of my siblings have children, my sister is due with her third in June, so maybe they'll lent me some things like clothes. We'll see. It is too early anyway to go on a shopping spree. Right now I am still amazed that I am actually preggo.

Friederike, thanks for asking. I did have a great birthday beyond the try at babymaking. It was a beautiful day--one of the very first warm and sunny spring days here, and I took the afternoon off work. I did this mostly so I could insem as soon as my package arrived without having to rush back to work, but it meant I had a chill afternoon watching Netflix with my hips raised. First, I walked home from work through downtown in the sunshine, bought a book I've been wanting to read at one of our local bookstores, and immensely enjoyed feeling free and warm! Then in the evening, I went on a mini roadtrip with a couple of friends (just to Burlington, about 45 mins from us) to a Queer Trivia night and dinner out. It was really fun.

In other news, I'm very perplexed by my body. Even though I didn't get a positive OPK until Tuesday, my guess looking at my temps would be that I had O'd on Monday (which would mean a 26 day cycle-it's only been that short twice before in the 4 years I've been tracking)--or that I actually haven't O'd yet. So, yeah, that's fun (in the "not fun at all, what the hell" sense of the term).

Fille - your chart is confusing, but maybe the warmer weather threw things off? For me, when it got warmer this month, I got lower temps because I started sleeping without a blanket. I hope the next days clear it up for you.

Liz - wow thats a lot of dancing veggies. Thank you! How is that wacky cycle of yours going? Did you finally O?

afm -
I am still scared that our hopes will be crushed, because I have pretty constant pains and some brownish spotting since yesterday. But it isn't getting worse, not like really bleeding and the pains get less if I stay in bed. So I canceled work yesterday and won't attend a conference I had signed up today and stay on the couch until monday.

I know there's been some chatter about how light the traffic is on this thread smile.gif just wanted to say I'm lurking along! I had to upgrade my browser and can't update my sig for some reason - but we haven't started yet - having some great important conversations before we settle into quest for parenthood. Wishing everyone much luck with their conceiving adventures!

me (38) + wife (34), one fabulous fur-son.  Newlyweds starting TTC Feb 2013 for our first baby!
