I have a confession to make…

Results UpdateI have been posting a week after what’s actually been happening. I had my transfer on May 26, and beta on June 5th. I was trying to read into stupid things like a winery I discovered last year is out of the wine I wanted, so that must mean that I’m pregnant since I can’t drink. Or, Kim Kardashian is sharing her infertility struggle with the world, plus she’s pregnant now, so that MUST be a sign.  I’ve made it through my TWW without spotting like last time, so that must be a sign. My boobs still hurt, that must be a sign. Continue reading

FET #1: TWW!

TWW UpdateSo here I am, PUPO. My two week wait is actually only nine days. I didn’t document my symptoms from the fresh transfer, so there’s not much to compare it to. All I remember was that I had cramps for the first few days, then my boobs hurt, then they stopped, and it was a BFN. But I’ve decided to keep track of my symptoms this time so I’ll have something to look back on. I’ve also skipped a few of my Bar Method classes “just in case”. I only skipped one class last time, but I did cheat during class.

My meds per day are:

  • Three 2mg Estrace by mouth
  • One 2mg Estrace vaginally
  • Two 8% Crinone

Day 0 – 0DP6DT

Feel fine, kind of gassy, but that might be from the sushi.

Day 1 – 1DP6DT

Little bit of pinchy cramps, bloated

Day 2 – 2DP6DT

Felt fine in the morning, some pinchy cramps in the afternoon

Day 3 – 3DP6DT

Headache in the early afternoon, boobs are sensitive (maybe bra is too tight)

Day 4 – 4DP6DT

Bloated, a little bit of cramping, boobs are sensitive, but not painful like last time. Slept for 9 hours, and also took a two hour nap!! Hard exonerated strawberries which taste super sour to me, but they were apparently ok.

Day 5 – 5DP6DT

Super thirsty, dry mouth, very bloated, little bit of cramping, boobs are exploding out of my bra, a little tender.

Day 6 – 6DP6DT

Super thirsty again, boobs are a little more sore, huge blue veins going to my nipples, woke up to pee twice last night. Ate some cherries which again, tasted super sour to me.

Day 7 – 8 – 8DP6DT

Same as before. Boobs still tender, but not as sore as our fresh cycle. The veins seemed to have faded a little bit. Beta is tomorrow!!

Join the #1in6 campaign

Canadians need support too! 1 in 8 US couples face infertility, while the statistic in Canada is 1 in 6! Join us in spreading the word on infertility in Canada!

Awaiting Autumn

The Canadian Infertility Awareness week is May 19-28, 2015. As Canadians, we need to be vocal about our struggles with infertility. Awareness promotes understanding, builds community, and hopefully will help shape the future of fertility funding in Canada.

When we first started trying to conceive, I found it difficult to find Canadian-specific infertility resources. Then, I discovered the Infertility Awareness Association of Canada (IAAC) and reached out to volunteer with them.

I recently had a call with Carolynn Dube, the new Executive Director of IAAC. I’m super excited about the upcoming changes and new initiatives they are rolling out.

To build awareness, IAAC is hosting the #1in6campaign.

IAAC is looking for Canadian’s affected by infertility to share their stories. They will feature 1 story each day in May leading up to the 2015 Canadian Infertility Awareness Week.

If you are interested, submit your write-up along with 1-2 high resolution photos to info@iaac.com

#Microblog Monday: Am I a Masochist?

Microblog_Mondays

One of my really good friends is due in May. She was one of the people I bitched to when I found out my 36 year old cousin was pregnant without issue. My friend’s baby shower is coming up soon. She made it clear that I didn’t have to attend, she knew that it would be super awkward. But I said I’d go. While I don’t like social gatherings with people I don’t know, I do love my friend, and absolutely want to support her. Continue reading
