Longer Than The Great Flood!

This is TMI post.  Just to warn you.  If you don't want to hear about gross personal things, I advise you stop reading now.  Or I guess at the end of the next paragraph,

It rained for 40 days and 40 nights.  I am now 42 days late for my period.  I last tested 41 days ago.  I hate testing.  Especially when I am SO late.  It is so much wasted time trying to conceive when it comes up negative.  I try to walk a fine line between hopeful and cynical.  I spend hours looking up any sort of symptom on the internet.  Mostly the links just go to message boards with infertile women asking if it could be a symptom.

My symptoms are:
This is how hungry I am.  All the freaking time.  I am going to get fat.
  • I am hungry like a hippo
  • I have been having a disturbing amount of mucus for quite some time now
  • My nipples hurt
  • A few times in the last couple weeks I have thrown up in my mouth a little, which while not unheard of for me, isn't usually a regular thing
  • I am really tired, although in the last week I have been feeling better
  • I've been PMS cranky for about a month and a half now, Poor Michael
  • (this one is super inappropriate to share in a public forum with my real name on it that people I know read, but what the heck?)  In the last week or so, when I am attempting to conceive a child (because who knows, I could have a REALLY late ovulation, what with all this egg white cervical mucus going on) it just feels different... I'm not going into details, because that would be horrifying for everyone, but it does.
  • Sometimes when I brush my teeth my gums bleed.  But then sometimes I have just finished flossing so that isn't really very meaningful.
That is it, nothing definitive at all. No vomiting all over (it is absolutely ridiculous how much I am hoping to wake up vomiting one morning), no giant(er) boobs with dark areolas and nipples, no acne.  No cravings (well other than ice cream, which I always crave, but not always to this extent), not even a more frequent urge to urinate (which I probably wouldn't notice because I pee like a pregnant woman already).  I spotted for like a week on CD 54-60, but it never actually became a period. 

On Friday or Saturday I am going to take a test unless I can think of a good reason to postpone it again.  I bought one at Dollar Tree a couple weeks ago, and I have a "good" one at Michael's mom's house that I left there so I wouldn't waste it in impatience.  I REALLY don't want to take a test.  I am 99% certain I am not pregnant (I know, a complete 180 from my last post on the matter) and I hate negative tests.  Plus, on the off chance that I am pregnant I will have no idea how far along I am.  Which means I will need an ultrasound, which I don't want to get, and I REALLY don't want to pay for.  Ugh.  Why is it that I unfailingly have my longest cycles when I am trying to "quit trying" so I don't have any temperatures to look at, which would solve this whole problem.  I would know if I was pregnant already, I would know when I conceived, and I would know if I was still waiting to ovulate.

  1. OK... I'm really hoping/praying!!! Regarding sex feeling different (to be blunt). That was the case with both my kiddos. Way TMI... but I felt "shallower" and more sensitive.
    You should test Sunday morning!! (I'll be there for the announcement, if you're pregnant)

    OMG!!! I would be so excited!!!! (like it's all about me or something lol)

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…
