Feb 13th: CD11. No smiley today, but CP was high, soft, open with EWCM. KD gave us one imsem today, will do another Tuesday the 15th no matter what, then see if we need another this month or not. Feel gross... Tim thinks he has food poisoning and feels yucky, the minute he said "nauseous" I got there too... good thing about AI - one does not need to "be in the mood"
Feb 15th: CD13. No smiley today either, but all body signs still lining up. Did insemination #2 at 2200. Have a "non-negative" feeling about this month, even though I still don't have smiley. KD will give us a dose on Thursday evening as well. Tim said Cervix was WAY open.
Feb 16th: CD14, STILL no smiley with FMU, CP still high, soft, WAY open. Temp went from 36.36 two days ago, to 36.22 yesterday, to 36.12 today... so it's dropping, WTH???
Feb 17th: CD15, Hello Smiley! So it looks like I DO ovulate with the full moon! Temp went upa little bit today, but still way below coverline. KD should be here in half to an hour and I`ll do my last insemination tonight (then text Tim while I lay with my ass in the air after attempting to knock myself up) and I do think I am feeling pretty good - I am actually nervous about tonight, because it might, just might work! Here`s hoping I O tomorrow and not Saturday, to give the boys the best chance.
Feb 18th: CD17, 1 DPO... major major major temp spike today! Yesterday went down to 36.09 today was up to 36.53!! Felt O pains in right side all day Thursday before last insem. Felt O pains all day yesterday in left side, so am hoping this means double eggs and double chance. Still feeling way optimistic about this month... everything looks good!
Feb 21st: CD19, 3DPO... still looking good, still feeling optimistic. Lots of praying to the Goddess, hoping to see a BFP this month! No symptoms but my usual excessive thirst I always get right after O
4 DPO: thirsty, tired and minor cramping today. Otherwise feeling great, still feeling optimistic, and I am getting laid tonight... wooohooooooooO!!
5 DPO: "Symptoms" today are, a wee bit of constipation, 2 BM today, sore legs (walked the dog for an hour last night) lower back spasming feeling (could be from dog walking) and a weird feeling like I have a UTI in that I have odd twinges in my girly parts, but no increased urination or pain. CP high, firm, closed, CM abundant and creamy/watery... very wet but white, no scent. Hitting the second doubting stage of the TWW, but overall still feeling good. Will test one week from today.
6 DPO: Legs and back still sore. CP med/high, firm, closed, still lots of white, wet scent free CM. Mood swingy today, weather could be blamed as it is gloomy and WAY cold and windy (-7) and Tim is almost 24 into his 36 hour shift now, so I'm always a bit witch when hes not around. Personal xxx at an all time high in my life, trying not to stress about it. Def. second doubting now... Blessed Goddess please open my womb for a child!
7 DPO: So tired today. 3 zits on right temple, 2 on left temple, a little earlier for break out then ususal, and way more! Temp spiked from 36.61-36.83 today. No other symptoms. Fingers still crossed. CP med firm closed, same CM.
8DPO: Temp the same today. CM same. CP same as yesterday. Twinges today, almost felt like O pain, but on both sides... no new zits, super dry itchyskin super thirsty. Got dizzy a little mroe then ususal today.
9 DPO: Dying here. Weird twinges again, a few times it felt like someone was sticking a pin in me from the inside out. VERY gassy tonight. Tired. Still congested. Dizzyish. CP has not moved. CM has not changed. Temp dipped a little bit (36.85-36.74) still way above cover. Part of me is SO sure this has worked this month, an equal part of me is sure it did not. Still 3 days still I start testing and I am going nuts. Lots of knitting to keep busy. No new zits, still thirsty, and for about the fifth day in a row now I have gotten super bloated after dinner, but tonight is the first time it led to gas. Painful bloating, Tim called it "morning sickness in the evening"... without the puking part, but so my belly is so hard and tight from being bloated it makes me feel ill.
10 DPO: For the record, I blame and thank stwrr at the same time. She made me test. Heather did too. They are bad influences... but awesome friends .... BFP baby!! FOUR brands all say the same thing. Symptoms, bloated and gassy feeling again, like if could just burp I would feel better. Lower back pain. Super excited now!
11 DPO: Still testing positive, and the lines are coming up FAST and dark. Thinking this is a sticky bean. Had a moment of "oooh, thats not a good feeling" this morning when I lit a smoke. Put it out, felt fine. Nice! Still shaking every time I think about it. Way excited. VERY bad back pain today, twisted weird last night while coughing and think I threw something out. Not too bad if I stay sitting or standing or laying, it's just getting from one to the other that sucks. Twisting weird feelings in lower belly today too a few times, not so much painful as sudden and unexpected. Guessing this is everythign shifting and saying "heeeeeey, its been 9 years since I did this last". OMG we are so happy!!
12 DPO: told Mom and oldest sister yesterday. Told dad and other sister today. Starting to email people. Physically feeling great, but did not nap today so even though it is only almost 9, I'm ready for a bath and bed. Almost passed out ont eh couch at 6, but thats because I am used to napping every day! Few little twingey feelings today, and boobs are starting to get more sensitive - please don't let them get heavy and huge yet! If I don't hear back from the midwife tomorrow I will book a dr's appt just to have it on record.
4w4d: Feeling GREAT! Been stressed a bit getting ready to leave town tomorrow, insomnia has been hitting me hard again, apparently being super tired and not sleeping is my 1st tri curse, since I remember this from the last 2 times too. Sence of smell is insane, i can smell everything, and it all makes me gag,. Not puke, not even feel ill most of the time, but gag. Boobs are tender now, and nipples are super sore. Nipples are already getting bigger, darker and they hurt, badly. STARVING but only certain things appeal to me... white milk, pretzles, crackers and cheese, hummus and veggies, pizza spaghetti... so glad I live in an Italian influcened town. Won;t be updating this for a week now, still seems hard to believe our dreams are coming true!
5w6d: First midwife appointment tomorrow. Smell stil super sensitive, and my nipples feel itchy all the time. Nipples defintely darker/bigger. Feeling like this may be much like Moosie, wil be 6 weeks tomorrow and the all day queasies have been bad the last 2 days. Constipation here a bit too, but that could be from travelling as well, just getting lots of water, bulk and fruit juice in hopes of fixing that. Not sure if Jen will be doing an ultrasound tomorrow or not (I hope so!) but everything just seems so exagerated this time, perhaps because we were really trying and I knew so early? What I can eat is still weird too - still loving pasta and pizza, milk and juice, just about anything else is a no-go. Mmmm, perogies would be good too....
6w3d: morning sickness blows. Literally. Thats all I have to talk about, I am so freaking sick all the time. Started Diclectin, now I am just nauseated, and only throw up 4-10 times a day, not every time I eat or breathe. And most of the vomit is smell oriented now, like when Tim farts, or the dogs go out in the rain and come in wet, or I have to scrape dinner dishes, or someone with too much (aka ANY) perfume walks past me in a store, or someone in another province eats garlic... yeah, its that bad... but it will all be worth it. Will write about the midwife appt later, i thought I had done that and I am too tired and sick feeling to do it now tonight.
