So Thankful..

I am so thankful for my new class of kindergartners.  Not only do I feel loved by several of them already (added bonus!) but I think it's gonna be a pretty good year.  I am mostly thankful for the huge distraction they have already given me. The amount of time I have during my day to focus on what is or isn't going on in my body is significantly less than last time.  Oh and I now have 15 boys and 9 girls, but the little guy who was added is awfully sweet..yay! The only downer of yesterday was I (almost) ate shit in my classroom in front of all my parents....slipped on something but didn't fall. Phew.....but I have a nasty bruise on my arm.  I didn't even know it was there til last night! But if that's the worst...I'm okay with that!

As for the waiting game this TWW....I wish I had a better idea of what to look for symptom wise.  I know so many feelings can just be the meds but I am trying not to dwell on anything.  I felt AF crampy over the weekend which hasn't happened before but who knows.  I have eaten more but that is a side effect from my Pred so we shall see.  My feet and hands have been really hot too....I have no idea what that's about.  I want these to be symptoms!!  I feel silly even typing this since that means that I have obviously been thinking about it.  I think it's me just being really hopeful still.

I am debating with myself on whether or not to POAS but I have a feeling I won't.  I just don't think I can handle it....but I so want to know if it worked. I want to have that feeling of seeing 2 lines....how exciting!! I feel like I was so, so much more calm this time and we did that hysteroscopy and he removed those 2 (even if they were itty) polyps...maybe that was it??! Maybe the predni.sone will help my body not reject them embryos and maybe at least one of them will decide to stick around. I have gone to acupuncture and I have taken herbs and eaten more than my fair share of soup and pineapple these past few days. I hope all of these things combined just might make a difference for us.

Hubby's stores open up on Friday.  Maybe my next post will be about his work.  He won't be home for another hour or so.  So I am off to chill with my dogs for a bit.  Poor things are so used to someone being around off and on throughout the day....now they are alone all day til  I get home which wasn't til after 6 today! Hope your week is going well.


  1. Though I hate to feed an infertile brain... when I read about your hot hands and feet I got REALLY excited. I had the same (which is SUPER weird for me) after our IVF cycle- and although it didn't last, I was pregnant! I hope there is some big exciting news to celebrate SOON!!!

  2. Don't you wish your uterus was a fishbowl and you could see what was going on in there?! the symptoms you are having sound good! I know I am going to be a nervous wreck during my 2WW. It is good you have distractions! I'm glad you didn't totally fall and hurt yourself -

  3. Ohhh..Waiting & Wishing...that gives me hope! Thought it was odd, but who knows! TurtleMama...wouldn't that be something! But I think I'd be happy we could cover it with clothes...:o)

  4. The 2WW is the worst! You would think with all the medical advances and technology that they have, they would've found a way to tell if we're pregnant just a few days earlier.

    With a 5-day FET, you feel the symptoms earlier, so those are really good signs! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.
