1 week down

So, how am I doing with my list?  Well, I'm still staying away from heavy exercise, but I haven't made it out for a walk in a couple of days and I haven't started my daily yoga yet.  I've been busy though with work.  Plus, I'm standing more at work to try to burn some extra calories.  I did a ton of laundry though this weekend, so I'm doing good there.  Plus, I just heard that hula hooping is good for fertility, so I picked up a hula hoop and I plan on using it everyday!!  I also made an appointment for an acupuncture class on August 1st.  That way if I get pregnant this month, I can cancel it and if AF arrives (God, I hope not!), than at least I have something new to try for next month.

In other news, I just found out that another resident in my class is expecting a baby in January and another one of my classmates just had a baby today.  Sometimes, I just get stuck in a rut thinking about why did I have to be the one to miscarry when every one else I know has gotten pregnant and had their babies or is pregnant now.  And even if I had to have the miscarriage, why have I not been able to get pregnant again?  Why? Why? Why?

I feel like I'm in infertile purgatory and I have no idea how to get out.   Sorry, I'm just venting a little bit, but it's been a rough week so far.

In testing news, I took a test at 3dpo and 5dpt because I wanted to see what a positive pregnancy test looked like.  It looks awesome, but not nearly as awesome as a positive pregnancy test would next week for me!  I took another test today at 7dpo and 9dpt and got a very, very faint 2nd line, which is probably just the remains of the trigger.  I'm planning on testing again in a couple of days to see if the lines getting lighter or darker, but who knows I might break down and test again tomorrow.  As far as signs go, my temps look great and even climbed another 0.3 degrees this morning.  I've also been having on and off again stomach cramps...they kinda feel like my ovulation cramps and kinda like a stomach ache, so I'm not really sure what that's about.  I'm also bloated, have occasional nausea, very strange dreams, occasional headaches, and I think that's about it.  I guess we'll see what the next week brings..


  1. I hope those trigger BFPs turn into a true BFP next week for you! I'm not too behind at 3dpiui - my first IUI - and it is already the longest TWW ever!
