Hey all!

Wow even typing out baby Lowe makes me happy

So I've been off bc since July...

And for august we decided ok.. Let's prevent...
And then in September we threw caution to the wind and decided if it were meant to happen, it'll happen.

Here we are a few months later.. And I'm feeling discouraged.
Feeling as if my body is determined to never ever in my life give me what I want.

This past week has been ALOT of baby talk...
Jon is excited
And we've come to the conclusion that we are trying! Even though we technically have been for months now.

Jon's biggest thing? He wants a fishing buddy, he wants to teach him how to swim.. How to love nature.. How to love everything!!

We're both excited and hoping for a boy...
For the first time ever my want shifted into wanting a boy.

.. Prior to O... I could bd every day... Him.. Not so much.
Prior to O and at O .. I'm as excited as a rabbit who's been on a drought!

So O happened Wednesday night.. We did it.
Last night, dh wanted to do it, I will say I really didn't want to.. And honestly took him a lot of work to get me started.
I feel post O... My drive goes from yes yes yes... To... Meh whenever.

Yay for a journal, Jenn!

I'm excited for you guys..... remember back in the day when we both swore we'd never have kids!! My how times have changed.

I think that you've got a pretty good grasp on understanding your body and it will only be a matter of time before you get your BFP. Cant wait for that day. Wouldn't it be so great if we both got them the same cycle....our babies could grow up together!

I know!!! We swore off kids forever!!
But just goes to show that we needed to get our lives together and happy before another being can come into the picture.
Now that we're both happy, now we want one!!!

My body hates me.. I swear.
O heartburn is torture!! And I'm still having some at 7dpo.

But... It would be amazing to be the same cycle... My last cycle nixed us at being cycle buddies lol. I'm 7 days ahead now.

Got to work today...

This morning I had a dr appointment where I told him that the second half of my cycle is 10 days... Instantly his brows went up
Says it's supposed to be more like 14.
He's filling in for my regular doctor while she's in china... She comes back Monday and I have an appointment dec 9.

Also, he suggested that dh get tested just to make sure he has enough swimmers and that they're strong....

And then.....
I get to work and pee in a cup...

And this shows up.





It looks a ton pinker in person... Doesn't look like the indent it is in the pic.
I swear cameras never portray it right.

So I'm wondering.... Am I?
Can I test at night? Like when I get home at midnight? Or should I wait till morning?

Had my first u/s.

Only a gestational sac
So the tech says that instead of me being 6 weeks.. She's putting me at 4.5-5 weeks.

I was hoping to see a little more to ease my mind

This exhaustion is killer.. I randomly fall asleep and it hits me out of nowhere.
Last week was tough,certain smells made me run.

From looking at your chart I would guess you would be about 6 weeks tomorrow which is why you didn't see anything yet. I know it is disappointing when you don't get to see a heartbeat. Fx for next time.

Thanks Elle...

I'm trying to stay hopeful.

This week has been beating me down...
Last night a co worker took it upon herself to tell me I'm a crappy worker, yet I was only helping her do her work.. Not do it for her.
So I lost it, walked away but before doing that I told her to kiss it.
Hormones are terrible

After that I went outside.. -10 outside... Screamed my heart out and chucked my keys.. Yup in the snow.
Jon messages to tell me not to get worked up.... Ya right!!! I want to run this woman over!

So I stayed in my truck freezing, music blaring to calm myself.
I went back inside 20 min later to walk right past her and go do my own thing.
Later I did tell her not to expect anything more from me... That she burned that bridge permanently.
