I have enjoyed participating in ICLW in the past, but "dropped out" when I had my most recent BFP. I think I felt guilty, even though it's a PgAL (Pregnant After Loss) blog, because I remember how hard it was to see other women's success stories past my own loss. So if its something you don't feel you're up to reading, please don't - step away, take care of and treat yourself well, first and foremost!
The not-that-long story even less-long:
I went off BCP in May of 2011 and after uncharted wonky cycles for 7 months (breakthrough bleeding every CD14??) I had a SIS (or Saline Infusion Sonogram) that showed a clear uterus and clear tubes. Two cycles later, a BFP (which was a year ago this past Tuesday...) that ended in a missed miscarriage at 11.5weeks (baby measured 8weeks). After the recommended two cycle break, another three cycles brought us BFP #2 - which has led to today, where I hit 22 weeks with our baby boy, due in almost exactly four months.
I started this blog as a "Buggy List" - things to do during the TTA time that I couldn't do once pregnant (like a day of hooky and the biggest baddest coasters at Six Flags!) and things that would be nice to do before "baby comes" - like weekly cocktail hours with the girls and last minute hot-yoga groupons.
And now its become sort of a "Hurry up and get things done" list!
We're remodeling bathrooms... and repairing+repainting guest bedroom walls (results of bathroom remodel!)... and repairing+painting a nursery (results of bathroom remodel!)... and trying to fit in "pre-baby" family vacations (which we've discovered is nearly impossible with "I can't take off work!" and "I'm not flying there!" and "I'm not spending 3 hours in the car!" and "I don't WANT to go there during that month!")
I'm married to a firefighter, so life is never calm - add in two fur-babies who like to create havoc as well, and its a recipe for a near-disaster that somehow ISN'T a disaster...
Welcome to The Buggy List!
