So no one cared that I didn’t drink on Saturday :). To be fair I only knew 2 out of the 5 of us there so why would anyone question why I wasn’t drinking? I spent most of the night sipping on water and staring longingly at a beautiful block of blue cheese. It was actually a fun night considering that the host and I were the only 2 non-moms (we both have 3 cats each, that’s why I love her). I really enjoyed listening to them tell funny stories about their kids. Kids are great. I should try to have some… Oh wait.
Sunday passed without any excitement. I was a bit naughty and painted 2 doors outside. I figured what could be more ventilated than outside right? Of course if we get a negative I’ll of course blame the painting but at least I’ll have some pretty painted doors to look at and wipe my tears on.
Yesterday I had a cleaning at the dentist. I told gave her the list of medication I’m on. She asked why the aspirin and I explained about the IVF and she just smiled the smile of one who didn’t know what to say. She then mentioned x-rays and I asked if it was okay to get x-rays if there’s a possibility thaaat, you know, IVF. She got the hint but I physically couldn’t say the word pregnant. Strange. Anyway, the cleaning hurt more than I was used to and so much blood. Possibly because of the aspirin, but I survived. I usually enjoy going to the dentist but she hurt me. The good news is that the dentist signed off on my braces and faxed over the papers to the Orthodontist. All I need now is a down payment and I can go ahead and make my appointment to get my braces! I can’t wait!!!
Today we’re 7dp6dt. Still no symptoms but I’m feeling more positive than negative. I was actually telling my friends today that I need to prepare myself for the possibility that this could be negative. It’s going to suck to start from scratch but we have 5 more rounds. A negative beta is going to break me a little more but it won’t be the end. I’ve also decided to tell my boss that we’re doing IVF if it comes back negative. It feels like the right thing to do.
THREE MORE SLEEPS!! I’m in bed already. Hubs is playing online video games with some friends and I have a hot date with Hugh the Hand… No! It’s a character in the book I’m reading… Really, it is!

An uneventful wait is better than a dramatic one!! At least you’re getting closer to the end. Sorry your cleaning was painful for you. I will say that bleeding gums IS a symptom of pregnancy, since your blood flow is up. Of course it could be from the aspirin as well, but I’m trying to look on the bright side for you! I’m glad you had fun at your get together…finding friends with cats is the best! 🙂
I like that bright side! Thank you 🙂
Keeping everything crossed for you!
Glad you had a good night out! One day it will be you telling stories about your children x
Thank you! I look forward to the day 🙂
I’m rooting for you! Really hope this is it. Glad the not drinking wasn’t an issue. I went out at the weekend and didn’t drink (because of my job interview / presentation the next day) and it was commented on! I hope that the rest of your wait passes quickly. X
Ugh, I hate having to joke around about it. I’m grateful everyone minded their business. Thank you!
I think your doing great! Preparing your mind for any and all outcomes is totally healthy.
Three cats! I love cats. I am a cat mom myself 🙂 Continuing to wait and hope for you.
Thank you very much. How many do you have? I should do a post on our 3 babies. They’re characters.
Well, we only have 1– which was a heavy lift because my husband is fairly allergic. But he is the light and joy and fluff of our lives! Haha. He’s pretty spoiled.
Sometimes when they ruin the house I wish we only had 1 but then they do something cute. But we’re definitely all set with 3. Oh my goodness.
