I can’t believe I’m already 7 days past my transfer! So crazy to think that was a week ago already! We will have our first beta very soon & will need to have four consecutive positive results to confirm our pregnancy. So far I’m feeling pretty good all around. Still just some slight cramping which has begun to subside as of yesterday. I’m really hoping that they are attributed to implantation of our precious embryo! I was pretty tired and lethargic all weekend too. It seemed like it took every bit of energy I had to get out of bed to do any errands or running around.
Friday I came home from work to my TTC Exchange Favorite Things package from my girl Jenna and it was amazing! Such an awesome care-package full of her favorites including Dirty Dancing on blu-ray, a bag of dessert flavored skittles, and BBW products! I know this girl would be one of my real life BFF's if we lived closer, thank you Jenna!
night Joe and I had a little date night. It was nice; we haven’t really done that in a while. We went for Mexican food at Mr. Salas’s in town. I had mentioned how good a margarita sounded, but ended up ordering a Sprite since I’m PUPO. If you know my husband at all, you know he likes to have a drink almost everywhere we go, especially on a after a long week of work. He actually ordered a Coke because he felt bad for me that I couldn't have a margarita. I thought that was a sweet gesture, but told him if I am in fact pregnant, it'd be a long 9 months of not drinking for him if he's going to feel bad every time I can't drink!
Me and ma boo-thang! Scarf is from Charming Charlie... lots of people were asking via Instagram
Ate as though I was eating for 5, steak quesadilla and a taco!
was grocery shopping, lunch, and then the afternoon at my aunt’s pool. It took a lot for me to get my suit on just to go sit at her pool. I couldn’t believe how tired I was, I had no desire to venture out of the house, but it was beautiful out and the summer is quickly dwindling away so I figured I better get out for a bit. Joe spent the day on the bike with his friends going to some of our favorite stops in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Again he felt bad that I wasn’t able to go, but I told him no more bike since I’m PUPO. I crashed around night. Also, I got my bill in the mail from doc, approx $15,000 for everything. This is before insurance for us, we are lucky that BCBS will cover 80% of this cost!
was spent again in bed for the majority of the morning. Joe bottled his beer & we stirred up his strawberry wine. Once he was done with all of that we hit Menards and Home Depot. He took me out to the property. I haven’t been out there in about a month. The forms are all up and concrete is supposed to be poured , but I’m not holding my breath. I will be so happy when all of this concrete is done so that my builder can get in there and start hauling ass. He is chomping at the bit to get moving and so am I, but I've kept my distance from the whole house thing so that I can avoid stress as much as possible.
this is what we did all weekend!
A commitment-free weekend is just what I needed following our transfer, and the next two weekends are actually also commitment-free which I’m excited about. It’s pretty rare in the summer to have weekends with nothing to do so I’m taking full advantage of them. The weekend I am looking forward to the second weekend of August when we go to see Motely Crue and I host my best friend’s baby-shower. I’m so excited for her 3rd baby! Also really hoping that I can share a small sliver of my pregnancy with my best friend. This will probably be her last baby & we have talked about being pregnant together for years, when the time finally came for them to start trying again they were able to get pregnant after several months of trying, we unfortunately, have not been able to yet, until now!
