{Pg Post} The nesting has begun!

How has it been almost a month since my last post? Things have been going well. I saw my OBGYN about two weeks ago at 14+3. Today I’m 17+1! The OB appointment was my first. The appointment was pretty straight forward. The OB gave DH and I a run down of what to expect. The first thing he said to us was that we need full-time help. LOL. I’m glad he said it, because I was already planning on hiring a nanny, but DH wasn’t quite on board. Continue reading

{PG Post} Second Trimester Already!

It’s been a long time since I last updated. First trimester was pretty uneventful. I didn’t have any morning sickness, but I did start getting pain in my groin around week 7. I also had heartburn, indigestion, difficulty getting comfortable enough to sleep. I also had no spotting since my LMP. No implantation bleeding or anything. But that all changed!! Continue reading

#MicroblogMonday – Another Pregnancy Announcement

Microblog_MondaysNot mine. Definitely not. I’m technically in TWW, but I ovulated earlier than expected, so this month’s a bust. There’s no update on the (in)fertility side. We were supposed to have a genetics meeting at the hospital last Thursday, but DH had to reschedule it because of work. It is now rescheduled for the end of November.

Anyway, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, and one of our friends just announced their pregnancy. They got married one year before us. I didn’t “like” her post, definitely didn’t say congratulations. All I could muster was, ugh, awesome, another one pregnant. Judging by how “festive” her announcement was, I’m sure there will be lots of bump shots. My second cousin is pregnant with her second as well, I found out from my cousin through a text. I think people think I’m fine when they talk to me about other people’s pregnancies, or baby related things in general. I guess that’s how I appear to them. I don’t react, I say the required pleasantries, and save the sulking for private.

I feel bad that I’m not happy for them, and it’s terrible that I’m jealous of what they have. When is it going to be our turn?

Review: AIM Pregnancy Strips

When you’re TTC, you want to know ASAP if you’re pregnant. There are so many kinds of pregnancy tests, ranging from a few cents each, to upwards of $30! They are either dip tests, where you pee in a cup and dip the strip, dripping the pee into a cassette, or pee on the stick tests. I personally prefer peeing on a stick because I don’t need to find a cup, and wash it out afterwards.

I got 5 AIM Pregnancy Strips when I ordered Pre-Seed from Amazon. These are dip strips, and they cost $13.99 for a 5-pack on Amazon. While these are not the cheapest tests on the market, they are pretty inexpensive.
