My brain is mush, la, la, la (might be the HGC huh?)

My mind is in another place right now and has been for several days. I dropped a hint in the last post that nobody picked up on. Days like this just aren’t conducive to being focused and serious in blogging so I am just going to put it all out there and quit trying to pretend like it’s not on my mind. We have called our parents so now we can tell the whole blogosphere! You can click the images to enlarge them.

That is the 3rd pregnancy test I’ve taken. I have been feeling woozy. I am not sleeping through the nights, I am peeing a ton, have been dizzy and super achy in my lower back. I have been keeping a journal of my thoughts each day we tested. Looks like we’re having a baby.

Pregnant? Oct 9th 2008

N and I were discussing my monthly fertility chart yesterday. We use the TCOYF method of natural family planning. It is recommended that both partners take part in the process so N participates by recording my temperature data on the chart every morning. I am in charge of interpreting the chart and then we both make mental note of my fertile days.

Anyway we were discussing my fertility for the month yesterday, N was asking when we should try to “make a baby” so we grabbed the chart and started analyzing. We realized our chance of already being pregnant was good.

I have been feeling fatigued, have been having sleep irregularities, am feeling achy, crampy and have even been feeling nauseous. Today will be 8 DPO so that means I just have to wait 6 more days to know if I am pregnant or not.

Here is the next entry:

October 12th 2008

I took a second pregnancy test, it looked like it had a very faint pink line. The first pregnancy test was very obviously negative, it has a evaporation line but had no color. The second one totally has a faint pink line. Seriously, it is super faint though. Here is a photo:

N and I even had an argument about whether or not it was a pink line, he claims he can’t see the line. According to my chart I ovulated 10/1 so that means I am now 13 DPO.

I have been feeling tired and achy still. In a few days we’ll know for sure if we are pregnant or not. If we are that means that I’ll be having a baby 3 weeks before our projected wedding date.

Now that gets us to today, October 14th 2008 and we have unmistakable double pink line action now. Too bad I don’t have insurance, oh and what are we going to do about the planned wedding and the dress I just bought? Do you think I’ll be able to get married 3 weeks after having a baby? I guess at least I’ll have nice plump boobs.

๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Oh, and Hailey actually pooed today! It was very little and it was super dry but at least she did it. Now we just have to fix her diet so she stops having pooing issues.

  • You know, I did pick up on that “late” reference but I did not know if you really wanted to be preggers or not, so i didn’t say anything about it.

    So, congratulations to you and N. You are in for the experience of your life!

  • Congratulations! I got the little hint, thus my question about when the wedding was to be.

    I’m laughing my head off at the cat poo update. You think you’re interested in poo now? Just wait a while (about 8 1/2 months, I’d say) and you’ll be analyzing poo; keeping charts about its frequency, consistency, and color!

  • Congrats!! I also picked up on the hint, but chose to let it slide. It always happens when you least expect it…my son is living proof of that. I have a feeling that you will be one of those pregnant women who has a soccer ball belly and loses the weight on post-partum day 2. I bet you will fit that wedding dress with no problem….the under eye circles will be a whole different story:)

    (hugs)

  • Dude. I picked up on it, but didn’t say anything because I know you’ve been waiting for this. (Seriously! I did!)

    Congratulations. And as somehow who was 3 weeks BEFORE having a baby when I got married…watch that dress fitting! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • You know, I thought you worded that oddly but I didn’t want to say anything because I know you really wanted to get pregnant and I figured that if you really knew you were that you’d be shouting it from the rooftops. LOL. Uh-oh. It figures after you find your dress and all. Ah, Talina. Lots of good things coming at you! ๐Ÿ™‚
