Seeing Things

0400 hrs and I'm up just before the alarm clock is sounding its wake up for J.  Time for medications.  First the blood pressure medicine, then I pee in a cup, finally the Endometrin.  I tested this morning.

0800 hrs.  I got up again from bed.  Lazy me, at 0400 hrs after getting J off to work I head back to bed for a bit.  I go pee in a cup.

I tested twice this morning before I had to head off to see my doctor for my EFMP (exceptional family member program) update.  Well it wasn't really a doctor I got to see but a PA.  This particular one has an attitude.  But the paperwork got updated and now I just need my psychologist to sign off on her part then the next step is submitting it for approval.  Luckily this should only have to be updated every three years.

I weighed myself this morning before my appointment.  Same weight for the past three days.  I guess I'm done losing weight and now I'm just maintaining.

My blood pressure at the clinic was 120/65  awesome.  I'm doing well on keeping it down for the most part.  I have to keep it down as I'm already a high risk pregnancy with all my medical issues.

I walked into two door casings today.  Well rather hit the back of my shoulder on them with my balance issues.  Breasts are a bit tender and full today. Pelvis isn't hurting as much, few small pains but not much.  But I'm keeping hope this will work out and I'll get my baby.

Oh and as for the two tests, well its as I figured, its a bit early still to really tell.  But both times were really faint lines. If I hadn't tested for the second time I wouldn't have been able to tell it was so faint.  Remember I still don't have a Beta until Monday.  So tomorrow I'll be testing again.

Now as for the photo above.  I have an idea.  I've been thinking of it for a while and I mentioned it before to my friend Alex.  I think we were chatting about nursery ideas over the weekend and I was trying to think of things to get her later on as a gift.  Meanwhile I told her what I had in mind for the nursery of my dreams.

Yes, I realize all of this could very well go horribly wrong.  But, I have to keep hope.  For years now I've been planning and plotting.  I've embroidered several designs of wizards, sun and moon and dragon things to be framed for the nursery.  I was thinking about painting the walls, partly to look like castle walls and putting the glow in the dark stars on the ceiling.   Its not that hard to paint and I've seen the step by steps to do it but it is time consuming.  Oh and the bedroom door is brown so it would be easy to add some mock, easy to remove details to make it look like a castle door.  J loves the color grey so he'll be happy with my idea but not so happy when I hand him a paint brush I suspect.  I was thinking of making thermal curtains with sun and moons on them too.

I figure it would be a great nursery for our Princess or Knight.  It would be a sort of grow with you room since we'll probably only be stationed here until just before kindergarten begins.  What do you think?

    1. 6 days past a 3 day transfer. So today would be THE earliest it could be seen without still getting the HCG shot left overs. I really didn't expect to see anything today.

    1. I'm hoping that they get darker too. For today I'm still PUPO. I'll take what I can get.

    1. It might be too early actually and it could very be possibly? maybe? the HCG still there? I read the online instructions about how soon to test so I shouldn't have the HCG shot still in me.

    1. Cristy I need all the hope I can get. I have to say after seeing no lines today I'm terrified.

    1. I only hope that I get to paint it. I might just have to leave it an office.

  8. It sounds like a really cool idea, but dark. As long as you can pull back those dark curtains during the day without spoiling the look. They have cool shears with stars on them that I've seen.

    YEAH for PUPO and lines of any darkness. I'm so excited to see what happens. :)

    1. I was thinking of those sheer moon and stars too but with maybe a nice white thermal under curtain block the air flow around the window. Maybe a sparkly felt?

      The painting really comes down to J having the time as I'm asthmatic. I could sketch it all out on the walls but he is going to be the one to paint.

      While living in Europe I saw some really pretty castles made of rose colored sandstone, some of grey granite, and some more white like limestone and quartz type. I'm not sure exactly how dark we'll go but I don't think it will be too dark, more soothing than anything.

      That is of course if I get that far.

  10. I am just catching up on all your posts. I am so behind.

    I absolutely love that idea because I plan on doing something pretty close! My Hubby and I love anything to do with knights and dragons and fairy tale stuff. Anything fantasy.

    1. At church today I pointed out the rock wall behind the alter and said to J that the pink/brown stone could also be used besides the traditional grey coloring we think of. He likes the castle walls idea too.
