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:

    Those kind of cramps could very well be a GREAT sign of things to come. I’m keeping my fingers and everything else crossed for you. The lake looks wonderful. I love the water…river, lake, ocean, it doesn’t matter. I’m glad you were able to have a nice trip with your man.

    I hope they mean something good and not are not indicative of an alien-body-takeover situation.

    …Cuz I’ve heard that happens. 😉

    I am weirdly at peace with this cycle. Only a little crazy. May is my second favorite month to December, and I am just plain happy right now, despite whatever troubles I may have. 🙂

    I can’t tell you how much Kyle, Mallory, and I enjoyed your visit!!! Hopefully Mike isn’t ignoring you too much and still playing that logo game that Kyle showed him 😉

      We had such a great time! We are already in the process of planning a summer vacation where we can come out and spend more time with you all! 🙂

      Thanks, Katie! And the progesterone is pretty decent… not as good as last month’s 40, but still better than my average! 🙂

      I mean, they were intense. I hope they happened for a reason!

    omg! Thinking of you and am now in search of your next blog post – as I am behind. And, not sure if I knew this before and forgot – but we aren’t too far apart from each other. Love Ludington (even though our jeep manages to break down every time we camp there over Labor Day weekend)
