7dp5dt – pee soaked glory




Pee sticks. Warning: Don’t buy target cheapies. Totally sub-par. I’ll use these WHEN I get solid positives on my FRERs as simple reassurance.

Yesterday morning I felt bloated and  a little crampy. Yesterday afternoon a killer headache had taken over and the bloating relaxed (Maybe. Or maybe my corduroys stretched out a little as the day went on!) Last night I felt miserable. Exhausted, maybe a tiny bit barfy and my head and neck and lower back were seriously angry. I was in bed by 8:30 p.m. and asleep by 8:45.

This morning my cinnamon oatmeal tasted gross. I’m currently dreading my one cup of pumpkin spice coffee.

There is a lot less cramping so far then with Pip. But I guess the embryo is just now setting up shop so there is plenty of time for crampy. I’m trying not to read to far into everything and remind myself a zillion times each day that every pregnancy is different.

I love you little embryos. I hope you are nice and snuggly in my new and improved Prozac Uterus – Now snuggly AND sane!

I’ll write a little more this afternoon about a Virtual Walk to Remember this weekend. For now, I’m going to pour my coffee and snuggle one of these warm cats.

    So so so SO HAPPY for you. I’m just starting to get the itch to test at 6dp5dt but will try to resist until this weekend. I have so much nervous energy and adrenaline between this and work I’ve been a total insomniac…

      Also, this is probably my favourite post title in the history of the interwebs.

    Beautiful pee soaked sticks. So happy for you!! Huge congrats to you, the large fries and The Professor!!

    • October 17, 2012

      Oh the Large Fries are in for a SHOCK when a baby enters the house! I can’t wait!

    Hooray! How many sleeps til beta?! I’m so happy for you Belle! This is just fabulousness.

    • October 17, 2012

      Ugh, sooooo many sleeps still. My clinic makes you wait a FULL 14 days until beta even after a 5dt. My beta is a week from today, Oct. 24. Agony I say.

  9. October 17, 2012

    Awesome!!! The best news I could possibly imagine!!!

    SO EXCITED! I’m rooting for those little guys.

  11. October 17, 2012

    Congratulations, Belle! (I can even see the squinter.) So very happy for you! 🙂

    • October 17, 2012

      I almost did not include the squinter b/c it is a little deceiving right now. It is definitely darker now that it has had a few days to “cure.” Either way, is is there and I am pretty sure the lines are getting darker (queen of second guessing here!)

  12. October 17, 2012

    Fabulous!!! When’s the beta?

    • October 17, 2012

      October 24! SO. Far. Away!

    WAHOO!!!!! 🙂 That squinter looks just like my tests did at the beginning on the same day, and you’ve got a great progression going! (Could be both embryos getting comfy in there!) I’m a huge advocate for FRERs as opposed to the cheapie tests. I always reason that after you’ve put yourself through so much and have so much at stake, you should spend the extra couple of bucks and treat yourself to the good tests! You’ve earned it!

    OMG, Congratulations!! You ARE pregnant, no doubt………can’t wait for beta day! Grow baby(ies) grow!!

  15. October 17, 2012

    Ohhhh Belle they’re beautiful!!!! Burrow deep and get comfy little embies. This of going to be your home got the next 9 months! Hugs Belle!

  16. October 17, 2012

    wow, that’s an amazing picture!!! i wouldn’t even call the first one a “squinter” – that’s a full on bfp if you ask me! congrats, congrats and best wishes for a happy 9 months 🙂

  17. October 17, 2012

    Ummm… that first one was NOT a squinter!!! I had a squinter yesterday – it wouldn’t show up in photos. YOURS TOTALLY DOES!

    Congrats!!!!! So happy for you!

    Your post yesterday forced me to POAS (3.75dp5dt) and thank you for that!

    • October 17, 2012

      The squinter is definitely darker now that it has had time to “cure!” Stick babies stick!

      • October 17, 2012

        Mine too. I swear it was not as noticeable all day yesterday and then when I showed B last night, he could totally see it.

        Our babies are sticking!!!

  18. October 17, 2012

    YAYAYAY! How wonderful! And also, isn’t it funny that all of these people are looking at something you peed on? hehehe

    • October 17, 2012

      IT IS FUNNY! And sort of gross. As a germ-a-phobe I have mixed emotions about pee stick viewing. Luckily, germs can’t jump through computers 🙂

      • October 17, 2012

        I handled those things through layers and layers of toilet paper, no matter if they were dry, and after throwing them away I washed my hands and cleaned whatever surface they were on. Don’t know why my pee was so apparently toxic. LOL So I don’t see myself getting within 10 feet of someone else’s test! Luckily your test is more than 10 feet away!
