About Me

My photo
I am a 29 year old teacher of fourth grade. My husband and I began TTC in March of 2008. We conceived our first month, but unfortunately it only ended in an early miscarriage. 8 months later we finally conceived again, and she was our take-home baby! Norah Jane was born on July 16, 2009. 7lbs 0oz 19" long and amazing. We recently had our sweet baby boy, Miles! He was born on June 12, 2013 at 3:37pm, weighing in at 8lbs 4oz, 20 inches long, and PERFECT! We are loving every minute of parenthood (even the frustrating minutes!). This blog is an attempt to chronicle the baby steps, foot steps, leaps, bounds, and milestones of this journey.

I'm miserable.

May be TMI, but I have a YI, and I am miserable. I took the three day knock-off monistat pack thing, and it was going fine. Well, last night was my final dose, and I woke up about two hours later with terrible itching--- like 50x worse than what had been going on. So I got up, went to the bathroom, unfortunately had the big D, then took two benedryl in case it was an allergic reaction. This morning I am still itching-- but not too badly. I thought my YI would be gone by the third day, not getting worse! I hope it clears up today, bc tomorrow we are going on a canoe trip, and I've been waiting for that for a while! :(

Stupid AF

I am assuming that because I was so stressed out this past month that that is the reason AF came 6 days early. Assuming aside, I am still ticked off. I know that this means that we can get an early jump on Cycle #5, but it still sucks big time because I had a lot of hope for this cycle. I had the +opk on CD 13, the neg opk on CD 14, thought for sure we timed everything right, and now nothing.

I never thought it would take us this long to get pregnant. I know that five months is nothing compared to what some people have to go through, but my mother got pregnant twice without even trying, and when they did try for their other two, they had no problem. She also only had one m/c and it was after all four of her children were born and when she was in her forties. I had a m/c my first pregnancy and am now on my fifth cycle trying. Wth??

SIL is having her baby on Monday. I am so jealous I can't stand it. Don't get me wrong, I am so very happy for her, but I am so stinking jealous. She is being induced on Monday-- not really sure why she is being induced two weeks early, but I'm sure there is a reason. I'm jealous though. They didn't even have to attempt to try.

I took down my ticker. I'm not using OPKs this month. I am going to forget all together what cd I am on. I am not going to try this month-- I'm going to try to just let it happen.
