About to have my seltzer in a highball.

We’re about to go out for a friend’s birthday. Only my second “night on the town” since the BFP. I’m tired, bloated, and totally fine with staying home. But, alas, we shall go out. I don’t know how long I’ll last, but I’m giving it my all.

“I’ll have a seltzer in a highball with a lemon, please. Hold the vodka.”

No spotting today. Seems the culprit may have indeed been the dreaded treatment. We’ll see what tomorrow holds.

Seabands are still holding strong.

All seems well in the land of baby bee.

We’ll find out Monday…

…what the deal is with my spotting.

Well, here I am a week after starting the treatment (which I am now finished with) and I’m still spotting. No cramping, but it’s a little concerning.

The nurse I spoke to today seemed a little concerned as well and agreed I needed some peace of mind. She wanted me to take the weekend to see if the spotting cleared on it’s own now that the treatment is finished.

So, Monday morning I’m going in to have them check my cervix and see if I possibly have a bacterial infection or if something else is going on. If there’s no infection present, she said I may get an ultrasound to check everything out, make sure there’s no other issues.

My reminder for the day.

Just because I’ve been focusing so much on the “10%-20% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage” statistic…I’m turning it around.

80%-90% of all pregnancies result in a baby!

(I like thinking of those odds much much better.)

Dear SeaBands…

If I wasn’t already married and bearing my husband’s child – I’d totally do all of that with you.

You’re the greatest.


That dreaded feeling again.

Category baby business, not so much

Although I am still firmly planted on the schooner of seasickness, I once again have that nagging feeling like something’s awry in babyland. I think this is mostly centered around wanting to tell people REALLY BADLY and also knowing that I more than likely will not be getting any sort of visible or audible confirmation that things are peachy for maybe a few more weeks.

Having minor bleeding occasionally isn’t helping much, although the MW and nurse at my clinic insist that it’s normal with a yeast infection. I’m just wondering how I’m going to handle being that close to an ultrasound machine and not get the confirmation I so desperately want at my appointment on Tuesday.

The hubs isn’t coming with me either, which sucks. He’s getting a crown put on later that afternoon and apparently can’t afford to lose the time off. He says he’ll come to future appointments, but I’m kind of sad now. I already feel like crying because of it. I’m scared I’m going to get bad news that day and then he won’t be there to console me.

Go away bad thoughts, go away…
