you should come see me this morning. been up since 5 (that's three hours) and other than eating breakfast, I've just created more mess than I can ever clean up again. Everything I touched failed. blegh.
LOL.

I do get too much time thinking about and planning this baby stuff, so that's sorted pretty well. it's the only thing I can do.

In my experience it's better to get pregnant first, then panic later when it's too late to change your mind. Everything works out in the end and there's nothing wrong with a few tears along the way : )

This was me every week when I was TTC - your brain just stops working a bit. Hope it's for real very soon.

got to speak to the great Rodney White himself! he's ok, if I make sure he doesn't get major feeds. I'll cut down a bit. He still likes to feed twice an hour if I let him. But I know I can cut that to 5 times a day and nothing over night as we have before (before he got sick). So I'll do that again to minimise his exposure as it does go into the milk.

just waiting for af still. No idea when that will happen as I don't have access to the fertility tracker now I don't have my tablet :roll:

having the scan this afternoon. can't say I'm not nervous LOL. intravaginal, which makes me nervous too, but I'm sure I'll be fine. hearing stories of how it hurts, but it shouldn't really, should it? My belly is tender and I can imagine that hurting, but, you know, that hurts anyway.

fingers crossed there is one little follicle ready to go on Thursday/Friday. Or shortly after. that's when the donor is in town!

squee, nervous, but oh so excited! having seen so many little babies this weekend just makes me want this more.

I had an amazing chat with a friend today. About birthing. we shared our experiences and I managed to tell mine without reliving (and retraumatising) it! I think that may be the first time I told the whole thing without getting angry/aggressive/upset. I have been thinking the last few days that I really just need to sit down with someone and tell my story over and over and over again without reliving it. The next psych can do that (that's why I was thinking about it in this way), but also the midwife will be able to help me with this. It's good to see I'm finally recovering.

couple more hours until the scan. I'm so excited!

Hope the scan goes well. When I had a scan to check follicles it was a bit uncomfortable but didn't really hurt. Thus insertion didn't hurt. The wiggling around trying to get a good look at my ovaries was the uncomfortable bit. But I had heaps and heaps of follicles and it took a long time to find and count them all. I got given a piece of paper and pen to write down how many she found on each side, so I had something to do to keep me distracted!

scan was all good. one follicle of 1.9 and one of 1.4 but he said it's not likely the second one will do anything. Testing LH tonight and tomorrow and depending on that we may do a trigger shot. lining was good and there is plenty of mucus. so all good, ready to go for Thursday
I cant really describe how I feel. excited doesnt cut it. horny, lol. but just really happy.

I'll still have a normal chance of pregnancy,, maybe slightly higher but not 100% obviously. I feel ready, though!

I'm so excited I can barely contain myself, lol. 5 days till I can test. had a temp dip yesterday, which means a 66% chance if being pregnant. had the weirdest dreams this morning, very out of character for me to have them like that. Other than that, I feel normal. excited and energetic.

I don't know when AF is due as the clomid changed my cycle so much and I know it can change your luteal phase too. But I got heaps of cheap tests, so starting on 10DPO and then we'll see.
