No. Game over.

We can’t afford more ivf. If I lose 40 pounds in the next year I MAY be deemed acceptable as an eggshare participant again. Or may not.

So. We are, indeed, a two mom two child family.

We are moving our pregnancy test date to tomorrow. TMD’s dad is here today and whatever the result, we don’t want company when we find out.

Feel the fear….and resist doing it anyway.

Progesterone has side effects that completely mimic early pregnancy. That is a mindfuck.

TMD bought pee sticks today. I am terrified of them.

And the heat is on.

No embryos were suitable for freezing. Not a surprise, but still a big disappointment.

Pregnancy tests and the thought of cheating.

A week from now we will be testing. Unlike last time, I think we plan to wait until the recommended 10dp5dt (ten days past a five day transfer), though a Tuesday morning is a slightly bummerish day. A weekend would be better either way, I think.

I can’t help it. I’m getting all hopeful and excited. What started as more of a lark, let’s give it a try and see what happens, suddenly I can’t imagine life without another baby. Or two.

I’ve started another blog post called Symptom Watch 2012, and should we test positive I’ll post that. TMD is generally less crazy than me, so we haven’t been looking at boob or thigh veins. Then again, where is the time?

I am a true housewife now. I do everything, so when she comes home she can relax and then go to bed early. I realise I’m only in the early stages of doing the bulk for the kids and house, but so far so good. Of course, she has been assigned the task of putting clean laundry away. And that task is surely worth its weight in gold.

Tell me, when did you test? Last time we were 8dp3dt.

Pregnancy, it’s not for everyone.

Well, MY early pregnancy symptoms are ticking along. Vivid, detailed, crazy dreams. Sore nipples. And, most notably, my period is still missing.

I may put up a ‘lost’ poster soon.

Dropping off the kids at the pool.

In the interest of accurate recording, I had really wacko leg pains this morning. Like I’d done a load of exercise. I assumed it’s because I did a lot of up-and-downing of stairs last night (if you count the one step into the bus as a ‘stair’), but am now on a wonderous site that says achy legs are a symptom of pregnancy.

My boobs are still nice and veiny. Also getting more sore. Think they look big as well.

I hope this is all just not wishful thinking.

My weird need-to-puke-OR-DO-I feeling from this morning has vanished. I still have not pooped. I cannot wait to just relax on the toilet tonight, for real.

Since the egg collection, peaceful and rapid poos are a thing of the past. If I’m not willing to sit and wait, nothing is willing to come out. But prior to today and yesterday, I pooped like 2389 times a day. Yesterday only the once. Today none. I am trying to casually fart at work without breaking the silence of the room. So far, so good.

Fun fact: when I was a baby, I couldn’ t be bothered to poop. My mom says that if I was playing or something, I would stop straining almost as soon as I started. She said my asshole would be dilated and completely brown with poo, and she’d need to ‘dig it out.’

Consider today a regression? Please, let there be no digging out.
