35 weeks, 5 to go

Wow, this process seemed so long at one point, but now it’s creeping up and growing ever faster to the big day. The desired result of this huge process is nearly here. It’s baffling. It’s much like a wheelbarrow being pushed up this long, time consuming, energy sucking hill… only to roll over the crest […]

Babymoon (Apr 28- May 7) – week 15/16

Like a big endless bath of mercury Late March-ish a work BFF announced wicked flight deals she found online from Calgary to “sun destinations”. About an hour later, Man and I were booked for Maui, Hawaii. This would be our only trip of these proportions for the next long while, so why not get it while it was half […]

Enter Week 15 – lengthy

After we got back from A’s dance recital, things have been a whirlwind. We all got to see little baby T at 12 weeks squirming and bouncing about, which gave me the confidence (and my new found energy) to start getting my butt moving. I used to run a lot. Like A LOT. I really […]

The Results :)

Hello again! Well, I’m happy to report you were all right. We went in first, just Man and I, and saw 2 arms and 2 legs, a squirmy little butt, and it sleeps like me and Grandmooshka (“gramma” long story) already! A kinked elbow with hand by its face lol. After measurements and reassurance that […]

Beta #2

Phewf, I didn’t have to wait too long. My beta from Monday morning was 404. So from Friday the 13 – Monday the 16, I’ve nearly doubled. Seems my embies lazy traits have continued onto their early development. At this point I’m thinking into it too much, but figuring there’s likely just one in there. […]

Test Day…

Friday the 13th has always been a good day for me. I’m not overly superstitious, yet I do have my own little rituals I find myself doing so I don’t “jinx” things. Murphy’s Law seems to apply to me so I try not to say “that will never happen”, because then it does… or doesn’t, […]

The Joys of Progesterone – a day 7 reflection

As if this two week wait isn’t going to be challenging enough … 3 days 20 hours 2 minutes in, there’s the added joy of the progesterone pills. From what I hear, I should be grateful I’m not taking the shots and to be honest I’ve adapted to this new habit. I have not adapted, […]
