Cycle 2: Day 7

There really isn’t much to report here.  Waiting on ovulation.  Mostly I’m just trying to enjoy the last three weeks of summer before heading back to work.  I’ve been school shopping for my son.  We went to the Williamsburg Premium Outlets yesterday.  I found a good deal on some tennis shoes for him.  I’ve mostly been shopping consignment stores and thrift stores for back to school clothes.  Really the last thing I need to do is get underwear and socks and pick up his school supplies.  Which I may wait until next payday to do so.

I’ve also been spending my time, looking for creative ways to decorate my classroom this year.  I used the same decorations two years in a row and I’m ready for a new look. I’m also trying to work out a way to have more centers in my room.  Any cute ideas for the classroom?


Cycle 2

Af started today.  I had PMS from hell, no baby.  the negative test I took a few days ago let me down gently.  I had already mourned and was just waiting for AF.  Now I’ll just be waiting and preparing for this new cycle of TTC.  I plan to get a new OB-GYN, since my current one is two hours away and set up a preconception appointment.  I plan to stay optimistic and pray everything will work out the way I want it to.

Negative! That is what my result was this morning.  I’m kinda bummed.  It may be too early to get a positive test or I may not be pregnant.  Since I bought two tests, I will test again.  But I will wait until I actually miss my period.  Which is what I had planned to do in the first place.  So at the earliest I may test Saturday or maybe even later if I don’t get my period.

My breasts are still sensitive and I also had forgotten to note the pimples I am breaking out in.  I haven’t had bumps in years.  If this is PMS, then this is some MAJOR PMS!  At this point, all I can do is wait…

I awoke this morning to daggers in my chest.  I was sleeping on my stomach and my chest felt like it was on fire.  This symptom isn’t unusual when I’m expecting AF.  However, this is different.  It is more intense.  Where it is usually a dull ache, this is actually painful.

So, because of that I gave in and went to the Dollar Tree.  I picked up two of the New Choice tests.  I think I will wait until tomorrow and use FMU when I test.  Not sure how I feel about all of this.  I’m excited because if it were to happen now, then this is the best time for it to happen.  But I really wanted to wait until this time next year.  What ever the outcome is, I am excited to be in the moment and enjoy my last pregnancy.  I am also excited to document it in a meaningful way.  If I get a positive test I will take my first weekly picture.

How many days past ovulation did you test?

There is still not much to report here.  I am waiting to test until Saturday which will be the end of my tww.  The symptoms are much the same.  I noticed some slight nausea and sore chest again.

We went to a program this afternoon.  It was very inspirational and gave me hope for the future.  I know it will take a lot of work for us to get where we want to be.  But the payoff will be wonderful.

Nursery Ideas

One of the ways I have been enjoying my summer vacation is by finding nursey decorating inspiration.  I went pretty traditional with the boys nursery.  But this time I want to do something more neutral and contemporary.  Here are a few pins of things that have been inspiring me.  Enjoy!

Loving the grey walls!


Having some of the same symptoms as past days, cramps, sore breasts. Also weighed myself 238, not bad still have kept off the weight from my paleo diet at the start of the year.

I also had to go to bed last night before bding because I had a terrible headache. I also had one this afternoon and also slept that one off.

I really feel the same as I have for the last few days. I actually feel like like this before AF is due as well. So it could truely be AF, however I just feel like this month is different. Partly because of the nausea and the stomach cramps.

This morning, J was in the bathroom and I could smell what he was doing and it made me so nauceous. Where as typically it wouldn’t have bothered other than it stinks!
