Day: May 15, 2012

Checking In…

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012.  CD22, 8DPIUI.

I know it’s been a couple of days since I last updated the ol’ blog, so I figured I’d give you the low-down on what you’ve missed:

  • My sister-in-law’s baby “sprinkle” was on Saturday, and that was super-fun!  My twin nephews are going to be very spoiled.  🙂
  • The husband and I went away for the weekend to meet our new goddaughter.  She was amazing and adorable and sweet, and I didn’t even try to steal her once!
  • It was nice to be away.  We were able to steal away for a few minutes on Sunday morning to check out the beach in Ludington, Michigan, where I haven’t been since I was a kid.  It was a beautiful day, and we enjoyed every minute of it!
  • From there, we drove down to Grand Rapids to meet up with my family and have a nice Mother’s Day lunch.  It was great to see everyone again, especially our adorable little curly-haired niece!
  • When we got back to the Toledo area, we made the rounds to see the husband’s mom, grandma, and sister for a quick Mother’s Day visit.  Then we went to bed and crashed.  Hard.
  • On Monday morning, I drove up to the research clinic for my post-insemination ultrasound and blood work.
  • My lining was good at a 16, and my progesterone came back at a 29.  Not too shabby!
  • A funny thing happened on Saturday night:  I started getting these little stabby cramps in the general lower pelvic area.  Sometimes they were sharp enough to make me double over or catch my breath!
  • They came and went throughout the evening on Saturday, came back a few times briefly on Sunday, and continued Monday from about 10am till at least 8pm!  Weird!
  • Today, I am trying to maintain sanity as I contemplate the possibility of implantation cramps and wait for the trigger to test itself out…

And here are some photos from the weekend:

Summertime Sadness

A safe space where I discuss the racing thoughts in my head, personal struggles, and day-to-day activities while struggling with mental health and mood disorder issues. My personal goal is to reduce the stigma that comes with mental health and mood disorders, by talking more about it.
