I wanted to quickly update that I received an amazing mug in the mail from Miss Erica, my mug exchange gifter!
This lovely mug travelled for
Quebec to Ontario without a problem and is now safely in my cupboard, waiting to be filled with some tea. I also have a whole new array of socks I am ready to use, so be on the watch for random sock pictures! They won’t be my feet in stirrups, because we all know I won’t need another IUI!!
Thanks again, Erica! You are far too generous! I love everything (maybe especially the card?!)
Much love from your TTC sister,
For the life of me, I could not get this picture to post higher in this blog post. Stupid iPhone.
I made it through the weekend. And though I had a note from my doctor not to work until Monday, my boss guilt-tripped me into going to work yesterday for an hour and a half. Standing and bending repeatedly ran a toll on my body and when I got home, I was feeling like complete shit. Cue the Gatorade guzzling challenge.
Overall, I am feeling better. My bloating/swelling has gone down and I no longer look 7 months pregnant. However, I have some serious moments of queasiness and nausea, though I’m trying to get used to it, cause I know I’m going to be confirmed pregnant by the end of this 2WW.
I have called my doctor and reported that I did not take the medication because it was a Friday and my small ass town doesn’t have a pharmacy that carries the medication. It would only be available on Monday because they have to order it is. Ella told me that she thinks I sound better, but I need to be careful because the symptoms can reappear. I am to continue sucking back Gatorade… which I’m over, by the way. I hate Gatorade now.
As far as symptom spotting goes, I’ve had a few sharp twinges near my tubes/uterus/ovaries (don’t ask me – I know nothing about my reproductive system and where things are situated). I told myself it’s far too early for it to be an implantation cramp – and then I turned that frown upside down and decided it must be implantation! It’s just early because there are two getting comfy. I am also getting AF-like cramps, which is not unusual with progesterone.
Cody won’t let me do much, which I am LOVING. I am a woman who was born to be doted on, I’m telling you. He throws out the term “PUPO” constantly, and it’s adorable. I can’t wait to tell him he’s going to be a daddy. I can’t wait for him to feel our babies kick. I can’t wait to watch him hold them for the first time. He’s going to be amazing. He already is.
Anyway. it’s time for work.
4 days down in the 2WW. Many more to go.
I hope everyone is doing well!
