So, I'm sort of and at the same time. I wrote in the 2WW a couple days ago about seeing a blip on a wondfo, and it is actually getting darker and more line-like! Hopefully that trend continues. You can barely see it on the FRER. This is our third cycle after our early loss in September. I called the Dr and have an appointment today to see if there is anything I can/need to do, like progesterone? Although I'm probably over thinking?
By my estimation I am only about 11 DPO today. However, I think it's a good sign I can see anything on the wondfo, since last time I didn't see anything until 15 DPO...? AF is due Fri or Sat, so hopefully she stays the eff away! I'm trying not to get too excited but it's not working so well.Cycle number: Either 6 or 9...This is cycle 7 since DH returned in May from deployment, but we were out last month due to travel so I don't count that month. We tried a few months before he left too. (essentially it just feels like a long time since we decided in the summer of 2011 to start trying). What we did: I ditched the thermometer this cycle, and almost didn't even record my CM. I also couldn't find the preseed tube, so I know at least one night we used regular lube. I drank the koolaid and ate pineapple core. I got back into running a bit this cycle for the first time since our loss. I cut way back on alcohol - it was not working to quiet my frustration at not being KU. Over the years I've found when it is not "working" anymore, it's time to cut back, so I had maybe a glass and a half this month total. I cut the caffeine out of my tea. I was just trying to calm down. Finally, I won a CBEFM on ebay which has not yet arrived, but I'm hoping I won't need it for a while! Timing: We had sex every day during what I estimated to be my FW and twice on one day. How to salvage a ruined pot: Put in a few tablespoons of cream of tartar, a couple inches of water and boil. Then drain most of the water, get some steel wool and baking soda, and push it around in the pot. Voila. Symptoms: A bit of absentmindedness (see above tip). ;) A little more fatigue than normal, some strange backaches. More emotional and moody. Nothing very significant, it's still so early.Due date: August 17, 2013How I told DH: I haven't yet! He has been in the field training since Monday. This meant I could leave all my pee sticks on the counter with no shame. He gets back tomorrow night...not sure yet how I'll tell him. I'm hoping I can turn a digi by tomorrow, and might just surprise him with it. :)If you have any good vibes/prayers/sticky thoughts to spare, please send them my way!
Thank you for the support and laughs, and I hope everyone gets their Chrismaquanzakha wishes this year. :)
ETA : Last night DH came home and I got to share the news with him! After dinner I gave him an "early Xmas present." He opened what he thought would be a wallet or something and inside was a digi with a bow on it! I managed to time this right as Ob-la-di Ob-la-da was playing. He got a huge smile on his face and was definitely surprised. It was a very happy evening!
Also, my lines are getting darker so I'm calming down and feeling positive! (But I still don't really recommend testing early ;)
Thank you so much for all your good vibes, funny pics, and general awesomeness.
