Guess What? {TTC update & an italic overload}

So you all know we’re TTC with the FAM method (charting/temping). Since Dec. 8th I’ve hunkered down and started charting for reals. And this past week I’ve been:




hungry ravenous

having to pee all the time

gassy (that’s just plain delightful to Sam – payback honey)


breaking out like I’m 15

and I have sore boobs.

Sam is having the time of his life.

Obviously. As are we all.

Then there’s my chart:

Where everything; dips (implantation?), spikes (triphasic?), etc, looks promising. Yes, I seem to have the world’s longest cycles. But there was the Mirena incident so there’s that. ::shudders::

I have food aversions and cravings (Chick Fil A chicken sandwich with mustard and pickles, and cold glasses of milk FTW). Along with a heightened sense of smell (kitty litter – gag).

Plus I bawled like a baby at the end of Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never (SHUT IT. He’s amazing and we started watching it as a joke). Then I downloaded all of his music. Currently I’m listening to Baby.

So it all looks good, right? Looks like I’m on track? Minus the Bieber mess…

And of course, there’s this to consider:

I’m guessing that this helps figure it all out.


I KNOW, RIGHT?? I was so excited and a tad nervous (in a good way) to share it with you all. I haven’t been able to write anything since I found out. Not anything. Massive writers block because honestly, what else could I say? We are over the moon thrilled.

I’ll give more details, how I found out, told Sam, and stats tomorrow but I couldn’t wait another day. I was going to explode if I couldn’t tell you all.

ZOMG I’m pregnant! ::HEADEXPLOSION::

  38. Congratulations!!!! So exciting!

  39. Congratulations!! This is soooo exciting!!

  41. I know I already commented… but I just keep reopening this post to make sure I read it right the first nine hundred times! I’M SO EXCITED!

  42. Congratulations!! How awesome for all of you. As Alexia said above there are no Chick-fil-As in Michigan, which will be very cruel for me when I am pregnant again because I lived off their unbelievable milkshakes when I was pregnant with Anna and we lived in SC. I was just in Virginia visiting a friend and the thing I was porbably most excited about was Chick-fil-A! Congrats again!

  43. Congratulations!


  45. Holy Cow I’m SOSOSOSOSOSO excited for you!!!!

    Yeah, I know, we don’t know each other but hey, we are pregnant together! And since I’ve been following you for months and I feel like I know you just a tad, I’m THRILLED!

    I’m happy for how you’ve overcome and conquered and are growing in your life. And now you’re growing a life!

  72. Congrats!!!! Such fantastic news!

  73. Hmm… would that be a Target brand pregnancy test? LOL. I have gone through 5 at home pregnancy tests- all negative. I went to the dr yesterday for a pee test- negative. I have every symptom you described above as well as being 2 weeks late. I finally had to go in for blood work yesterday and am now anxiously awaiting results! How fun would it be for us to be pregnant at the same time! Maybe even same due dates!?!? =0)

    Congratulations hun!
