I don’t think I have five followers, sooo.. If you read this, and would like to do it, then be my guest! :)

2WW?

I think I’m probably in the 2WW though I don’t know for sure. The last OPK I took was on Friday and it was still negative. I suspect that I probably O’ed on Saturday, as I was really uncomfortable and bloated Friday late afternoon. We had our regional competition for our chorus all weekend and I forgot to bring another OPK to test on Saturday. DH and I BD’ed Wednesday, Thursday, and yesterday… And that’s it. I didn’t freak out about it, I didn’t obsess… It is what it is. We used PreSeed so maybe that will be enough to help the lil’ swimmers along. Maybe it won’t. Regardless, I’m feeling OK about it all.

My chorus placed 2nd in our small chorus division, and 3rd overall. We competed against 12 other choruses, so I feel really good about the whole thing! Woo hoo!

Disappointed

So I asked DH if he was feelin’ up to some lovin’ tonight. I didn’t think that he would, because of his knee and all. I sent him a text and said it was fine if we started tomorrow night, seeing as how he cancelled his weekly Warhammer game with the guys just in case his knee wasn’t feeling better and he’d be all mine. He sent back:
Nope, game’s back on.
Sigh.
I’m really disappointed. We’re not going to get BD in tonight, and we might not get it in tomorrow. I guess that just leaves Thursday. And we can give it a shot on Saturday night after I get home from contest, I suppose. Oh well. These are the types of things I need to stop stressing out so much about.

I just get so sad at the thought of wasting yet another month of trying. I’m so tired of trying. I guess we’ll just see what happens.

Getting Closer

I made my trip to the bathroom early today…. I couldn’t hold my pee anymore. I try to hold off on testing on my OPK until after lunch, as my LH surge is more likely to show up then. Well, after POAS I wiped, and there I saw something beautiful:

EWCM.
A LOT OF IT.

Now, my OPK was negative but still. THERE WAS A LOT OF EWCM! I don’t know if it’s the Origin vitamins finally kicking in or what, but I NEVER see EWCM. I’m very pleased with this. I’m hoping that my O comes early this month.. Like, tomorrow or Thursday early. I’m expecting to O sometime between Friday-Sunday which is THE most inconvenient time for O EVER.

My chorus is going to regional competition this weekend. It’s here in town but I will be at our hotel all day Friday, overnight Friday, and all day Saturday. Not the best for BD!!! I’m going to try and get a BD in tomorrow, and one Friday morning… Or maybe Thursday, and one Saturday night when I come home. It’s going to be tricky, but we’re gonna try.. I have that PreSeed that I bought and haven’t used it yet. I had a very vivid sex dream last night, and in it we used the PreSeed and I remember it was really awesome, heh. I’m looking forward to trying it.

Another snag: Josh twisted his bad knee yesterday and is laid up at home. I had wanted to try and BD tonight but that’s probably going to be a no-go.. I feel OK with it, since my OPK was negative but tomorrow I’d really like to try and get a good session in.

So I’m just waitin on the eggie.. With plenty of EWCM :)

Sad

I’m feeling frustrated and blue today. I feel like it’s never going to happen for me. I know that I have no way of knowing that, but it just seems like every month that passes, it gets harder and harder for me to believe that I’ll ever be pregnant again.

This, too, shall pass.

A Morning Visitor

I woke this morning to find AF in full force. It’s on to attempt #9 for us. I’m keeping my fingers crossed, trying to remain hopeful and optimistic, and hoping that we will get our sticky BFP our Easter basket this year.

Crashing the Party

Well, I was having some pink discharge last night and this morning, and as I type I’m starting to cramp. So, it seems that AF is making her appearance, right on schedule. I got a + OPK two weeks ago yesterday, and I suspected that I ovulated the day after; that Thursday.

DH and I BD’ed for four days straight; Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. We had our bases covered, and we still didn’t catch the egg this month. That’s just the way it goes, I guess. I just ordered some PreSeed online. I had ordered Pre’, the lubricant, months ago and we’ve been using it since. This month, however, I ordered the actual PreSeed that is supposed to mimic fertile cervical fluid and help the “boys” swim.

Hopefully that paired with Origins, and a lot of positive thoughts will help us get an Easter BFP.

I’m bummed, but I feel like our month is truly coming. Just keep on keepin’ on…

Oddly enough, the song that just came on my radio is Don’t Stop Believin’.

Butterflies

I have been lurking in the November 2009 Expecting Club on iVillage for a few days.

I opened a post today that was full of blinkies, a couple that were specifically “Due in November” blinkies, and I started to get excited butterflies in my tummy.

I want to wear one of those blinkies on my iVillage signature so badly. I’m so ready to be pregnant again, I want it so bad. I had to banish those butterflies ASAP, because I don’t want my heart to be broken by AF’s arrival in a few days again. I just have to live like I’m expecting her tomorrow/Thursday. The last few days wait are the absolute worst. The WORST.

Weirded OUT.

My dad just e-mailed me and told me that my stepmom had a dream about me getting pregnant.

That makes five, folks. Another girl on my TTCAM board had a dream about me getting pregnant.

I officially have goosebumps.

I don’t think that it’s going to happen this month (I’m still feeling those constant dull cramps), but I think it’s going to be soon.

Almost There

Just a few more days ’till AF is due. As usual, I’m feeling sort of indifferent. I feel bloated, and that constant, dull achy/cramp feeling is still with me. I have been (TMI alert) constipated for the past few days, which sucks and is uncomfortable.

My boobs are swollen and my nipple/areola area feels like it’s on FIRE. Last night I almost took my shirt off because it hurt to have it on. I’m not putting a whole lot of stock in this because this is usually a sign of AF.

The copious creamy CM that I’d had for a few days last week is no longer. If I check my cervix, the discharge that I get is still creamy but it’s no longer coming out on its own and making its’ way to my underwear.

So all I can do is wait. Isn’t waiting fabulous?
