Testing...one...two...three!?

Well as everyone in Hobby Lobby knows I was due to start my cycle Friday. So I called Target Wednesday to make sure they had my birth control pills ready to go. By Thursday I still haven't heard from the pharmacy and I was getting nervous since I'm supposed to start my BCPs on day 2 of my cycle. Saturday. 
Friday we were leaving to go camping. I ran to the doc because I had some swollen lymph nodes, and she put me on a Z pack. I go to pick it up and the pharmacist tells me that they no longer make the brand of BCPs that the doc wrote in my rx. Sooo they were trying to get in touch with the fertility doc to make sure generic is ok. 
Meanwhile I'm wigging because the earliest we can get the generic is Monday. Blaaaarrrggggggg
I tell him go ahead but our whole cycle may be screwed. It's Friday afternoon, and still no sign of Aunt Flow. So I call the fertility doc and they said no worries. Since I'll prob start on Saturday, I can take the first pill Monday and we will be fine. 

Then Saturday comes. No sign of her. 
Sunday. Ummm not even a cramp. 
Crap. 
Uhhhh....hmmm...
I've been like clockwork down to the hour. What the crap?
Now as you may know I'm a big Bob Barker fan. And all my pets and husbands have been spayed or neutered. So I can't figure out what the crap. 
Out of pure morbid curiosity I decide to take a pregger test Sunday night. I guess on the off chance that his boys played Evel Knievel and jumped the gap or something. 
I immediately see nothing, breathe a deep sigh of relief and go upstairs to play with the girls. 
I come down later to grab some water and uhhh

You see it too right?? I felt sick. Oh crap that's a sign too right!? Hubs was at a softball game so I swooped up the kids and ran to CVS. 

We got home and I ripped open the test. I waited exactly two minutes and...


Whew!! In the clear. 

I took another in the morning


Again...nada. 

So that is the time friends that I learned the lesson of the evaporation line. 

I knew. I mean hubs is manly, but I doubt he's THAT manly. 

So now the only bummer is that my cycle is STILL 4 days late!! I guess this is the portion of our pregnancy journey where we "stop thinking about it."

I'll just relax and let it happen right!? HA 

Right...we'll just try that. All I know is she better show up quick!! I've got an egg to hatch and we can't get this show on the road until the guest of honor arrives. 

Round 3 of the Hurry Up And Wait game continues...

On the bright side, we are still a family of four! Whew!!

The Journey Begins

I think my love of pregnancy stems from my mother. She always talked about her pregnancy with me as the most beautiful time in her life. She was always so positive and uplifting when describing her pregnancies that I think she partially brainwashed me into thinking pregnancy was magical and wonderful. 
My own pregnancies were every bit as amazing as I imagined they would be. I was plagued with morning sickness before I even got my first positive pregnancy test. I had severe backaches and my cankles were glorious. My acne flared up, and my hair got so thick it seemed greasy. People kindly told me I was "all belly", but I think they actually meant that my entire body looked like a swollen gut.
But none of it distracted me from the fascination I felt the first time I took a foot to the ribcage. The entire process of growing a human being inside my body completely blows my mind to this day. 
I was the crazy pregnant lady who knew what day my baby would grow fingernails or when s…

Mommy and Me

I've been meaning to update since our group psych meeting last week, but I was in crunch mode since we decided on a last-minute trip to visit my in-laws to celebrate our nation's freedom. The irony is not lost on me.

So last week we had our group psych evaluation, which I was told about three hundred times is "an industry standard" by the lady doing our psych evaluation. I'm not sure any of us were super opposed to the meeting, so I don't know why she felt the need to assure us that EVERYTHING IS NORMAL!!! lol Umm it made me feel a bit like maybe everything was not normal. But that's psych evaluations for you.

I was a little nervous that I was going to have verbal diarrhea and just blurt out all kinds of craziness all over these people, so I made the Hubs meet me there so he could grab a muzzle if need be.
I just had so many questions and things I wanted to say to my IM since we have the weird no contact thing going. I just felt so in the dark about how t…

6 Week Ultrasound

Our first ultrasound was scheduled for today, and it was shaping up to be the ultrasound that almost wasn't. They kept calling to push it back and reschedule and at one point they asked to bump it to Saturday. I already had Saturday plans in the works, so that wasn't happening. I told them I'd mosey over to the other office if we could do Friday.

So today was the day. I had to take the minions with me since my mom had to grab a last minute doctor visit. That was exciting since Sweet Pea has taken to screaming like menopausal Medusa when things don't go her way. But Baby Mama and Baby Daddy were very sweet with them, and I had a fully charged Kindle in my arsenal.

Dr. B came in looking radiant as usual, and the hunt was on.

I was holding my breath hoping to just see one big beautiful sac and my heart almost fell out of my butt when I saw two black areas. I seriously almost fainted. But Dr. B moved the wand and assured me that there was just one sweet little bean. Snug …
