a random collection of nervous bullets

  • Over the weekend I thought I might go back to some of the regular yoga exercises I had been doing previously, after two weeks of fertility yoga. Except on Monday morning I felt queasy, and on Tuesday it was pretty much all-day queasiness. My innards remind me of an active volcano, considering eruption (although fortunately so far nothing has actually happened yet). So I’m sticking with the laid-back version that just gives an extra Good Morning serving of oxygen to all my cells and embryos, and some sanity to me.
  • My tight pants are too tight.
  • H is getting increasingly worried about twins. The other day he threw two 20-sided dice – 2 and 2 came up. I keep telling him we haven’t even made it across the 50% barrier of getting pregnant at all, although I have to admit that I’m really hopeful at this point.
  • I saw some cute shoes downtown. H asked to see them online. I had to laugh when I saw their name.

  1. HA! Those are some crazy omens. You certainly have every reason to be hopeful, and I’m right there with you, going pretty insane with hope. I admire your ability to wait for beta…

    1. Bunny — in part I’m trying to accept that I don’t have control over the outcome, and that finding out earlier won’t change anything. I didn’t feel much in control for this entire IVF, and yet until now it did work out quite well. The other part is that I don’t have a good history with HPTs (as in, they were always negative) and have no intention of continuing that…

  2. thursday to day. Oh sweet baby J, I can hardly wait until tomorrow. I can’t imagine how you feel (well, I can a little, based on my own experience. But I still have no clue how you feel). TWINS! TWINS! TWINS! (just shouting so the universe hears me).

  3. I have to say that Stan was convinced from the get-go that it was going to be twins with Sofia (which it sort of was), so maybe your H is on to something… (Stan has been the same way this time around as well – from just a few days post-IUI, so eeek!) Either way I’m hoping for a healthy 8 months! And I think you should buy those shoes. Not only are they adorable (and how adorable is the description of them!?) but they’re Spanish! ;)
