It’s About Time…

I’ve basically been in hiding now for a few weeks, sorry! So, as many of you know I’M PREGNANT!! I was holding back on writing too much about it because I just didn’t want to get myself too excited. I’m over that now, I’m freaking excited and I want everyone to know. We got to hear the sweet little heartbeat on Monday, it was perfect. We have 1 perfect little angel growing right on target. We are due on March 26 and we couldn’t be more excited.

Symptom wise things have been pretty good. I was a little nauseous for a week or two, but I didn’t throw up. My boobs have been sore and growing like crazy, and I have been ridiculously tired. I’ve also really been wanting breakfast things that I ate when I was a kid (pop tarts, cinnamon toast crunch) it’s weird, but delicious! 

Beta Results

After I got home from my beta yesterday I put 3 bottles of wine in the fridge just in case.  At 330 I got a phone call from the clinic and instantly felt sick.  I sent the call to voicemail and then listened to it after.  I didn’t  want to be a mess on the phone with anyone. My results were POSITIVE! !!! HOLY SHIT!!!!!! Eeeeeeek! !! I am just elated with this news.  The voicemail the nurse left was the sweetest thing ever and I plan on saving it for a while.  E wasn’t home yet so I quickly ran to the store and grabbed a few things to surprise him.

I am nervous and excited all at the same time!  I go back in on Monday to make sure my levels are rising appropriately.  Continued prayers are greatly appreciated.

For  some reason I felt the need to still pee on a stick. Nothing is as gratifying as seeing a positive.

I was so excited when I got the news that I forgot to ask for my levels. I sent an email to the nurse and she will probably get back to me this morning. What are normal levels for this early in pregnancy?

Beta Done!

Beta is complete.  Now we wait. … I hate waiting! I should find out after 4. I asked them to leave my results on my voicemail so I could play out for E if it is positive. Eeeeeeek!

I’m Crazy

If someone were to look through my search engine at home or at work they would think I was a lunatic. I’ve gotten to the point where I just can’t help myself.. I Google EVERYTHING and I do mean EVERTYHING! I should keep a list of the random things I Google. I have gotten especially crazy in the last 4 days of the TWW.

So, tomorrow is the day, TOMORROW!!!! Holy smokes! As long as this two weeks has felt, this entire cycle has flown by. I’m excited and anxious to hear what the results are. If they are negative it will suck and I will be heartbroken, but I will pick myself off and we will try again. I’ll also drown my sorrows in a bottle or two of wine. If it is positive I will be overwhelmed with excitement and gratefulness. Either way I am excited to know.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKK!!!!

1 Week Down!

Well, you read it…. I am HALFWAY through my TWW. This TWW has been a lot different than my last TWW after the IUI. I am much less stressed and obsessive. I’m also not paying too much attention to “symptoms” or anything like that. This has been both good and bad for me. Good because my day isn’t consumed with convincing myself that I am pregnant, and bad because I don’t feel like I have any “pregnancy-like” symptoms this time so I have convinced myself that I am probably not pregnant. Do any of you do this?

I think I am going to hold out again on taking a HPT and wait for my BETA. I did test my trigger a few times and it has without a doubt lasted in my system longer this time. Last time it tested out of my system in about 5 days. When I tested 8 days after the trigger this time it was still in my system (pretty light though), I haven’t tested since then though.

The second week of the TWW is generally the toughest for me. So, I am planning on doing a huge summer clean of our entire house. Much needed if I do say so myself. Hopefully this will keep me distracted and get me through the long stretch until Thursday!

Praying for my positive!

Question…

My iui was yesterday and we are going to a pool party tomorrow.  What are your thoughts on swimming after the iui?  I won’t be getting in the hot tub, but getting a cold pool might not be so terrible in this Texas heat. I talked to my doctor about swimming and she said it was fine, but I get different information on dr. Google. Thoughts?
