Mmm, sushi! I had sushi for lunch on Fri too. Glad to hear that the nurse will make sure you get your results earlier.
I’m so sorry about AF, and that you’re feeling down. And I think birthdays and other big events make it tougher, esp after a loss. If you are leaning towards stepping away from temping, maybe give it a shot and see how you feel/if it helps? Sending you big hugs. Also, we did SMEP this cycle and this was what it ended up looking like: BD EOD starting on CD9 (so 9 and 11). I got a positive OPK on CD 12 so we did ED on 12, 13, and 14. We skipped the last one (where you skip a day and then BD one more time) because I was pretty sure O had happened by then, plus we were BD’ed out after 4 days in a row. It was a lot, but manageable– 5x over a week, but then not much before or after that, you know?
Yay, yay, yay!! So glad the betas were strong! And March 23 will be here before you know it. FX for you!
Interesting about the acupuncturist. It’s crazy to think that you can tell so much by a pulse! I guess we’ll see if she’s right… but in the meantime, I hope it helps with your foot!
You have such a great attitude! It would be great if the silver lining were twins… but I hope you don’t get to the point of needing to explore IVF!

: You know the likelihood of natural twins increases with age, right?? I will also be over 35 for #2 (I turn 33 in June so will be at least 33 when baby #1 is born)… I wouldn’t be upset if I got twins out of being advanced maternal age! Though the thought of two newborns is also kind of terrifying, ha.
That’s great about the hormone levels!! Your chart is looking good, when are you going to test?
Love the egg idea! Haha.
I hope that the birthday POAS date is extra lucky!!! FX for you. And hopefully the follie is looking bigger tomorrow!
That is great about acupuncture! I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. and I totally agree with your sentiments about living your life– it’s so hard not to put things on hold, but at the same time, it’s unrealistic to keep doing that indefinitely.
So, just got back from our ski weekend and it was awesome. We stayed at a big house with a bunch of friends– many of them are our closest friends, and then two other couples that I know less well. Also two babies. Lots of skiing and lots of quality chatting and relaxing. At one point, one of the girls that I’m not as close to mentioned her SIL having repeated miscarriages. I brought up that I’d had one, and it turns out that both of the other girls that I don’t know as well have also had them. I can’t even express how nice it was to be able to talk to women IRL who have been through this- this was the first time I’ve experienced that. One of the girls is currently pregnant with twins, and the other is still trying (they’ve been trying for a year). It was just so… normalizing and refreshing. Most of my friends have gotten pregnant right away and none have had losses, so it feels like they are in a different boat. It sounds cheesy, but I felt so emotionally fulfilled after that convo and a few others that followed.
And I am symptom spotting like whoa. My boobs have felt fuller and a little sore practically since O, but today I woke up and they HURT. This was true the last time I was pregnant so I can’t help but wonder… also noticing dizzy spells, which I had the last time I was pregnant starting very early on. Today I had a little bit of mild cramping, but it’s pretty early for AF (9 dpo).
Of course, I could be just finding what I want to find, too.
