WordPress has changed up a few things around here. I’m trying to get used to the new way of writing up posts, so excuse the mess if it ends up looking a bit off. It’s gonna take a bit of getting used to the new format of things….but I think they’ve made some great changes. Looks like it’s going to be a lot easier to use!
Anyway, back to TTC. I’m half way through the wait. Woo! Bring on the pseudo symptoms:
- Sore breasts for the last 3 days. Very unusual.
- Dull lower back pain.
- Killer headache all day yesterday.
- Huge appetite the last 2 days.
Here’s today’s chart:
In other news…….K and I are having a nice, lazy day. I am currently in bed, under covers. Hair is a bit of a mess, glasses still on, and I haven’t done my makeup. It feels nice to just relax. The latter part of the week was crazy, with a 16 hour day draining all our energy. We’re going out to dinner with some friends at 6pm…so I still have a little bit more time to just LAZE.
have been trying to keep my mind of symptoms and testing and so forth during this wait, and found this fairly new invention called the conception pillow. Granted, I think they have almost invented everything under the sun nowadays…. but, I did think it was cool. K and I always prop a bunch of pillows under me for the insems…and a lot of the times, they slide….so I thought this was pretty cool:
The Conception Pillow. “The pillow’s unique patented design follows the advice of fertility experts, which is to elevate a woman’s hips, legs and buttocks after intercourse. It helps to position the hips and cervix so that the sperm is kept in place within the cervix.
“Use the pillow for 20 to 30 minutes so that gravity can help nature take its course. Many experts believe that maintaining this position increases chances of conception. The pillow is contoured to fit the shape of a woman’s body.”
The pillow has been endorsed by obstetrician/gynecologist and infertility specialist Dr. Christopher D. Williams, author of “The Fastest Way to Get Pregnant Naturally.”
“It simulates the procedure I use in my office after a woman has undergone an artificial insemination of sperm,” Williams said.
“I used the pillow, and it worked for me,” said Drangula. She and her husband created and then discarded four polyurethane foam prototypes before they developed the Conception Curve Positioning Pillow, which is on the market today for $59.95 at http://www.conceptioncurve.com.
“It’s a success,” said Christy Carlo Musumeci Drangula, who’s working on her second invention. She’s hush-hush. about that.
Have any of you guys heard of this? Tried it??? I am hoping my “symptoms” are meaning something….one can only hope, right?? I’ve heard that have sore boobs is a pretty good sign…..And now, I’m off to have some ice cream! Happy weekend girls!
