So, it's officially official. LOL

Test results indicate that as of 10-16, I am indeed pregnant, and my hCG level at that time was 387. Internet tells me this is within normal levels, possibly on the higher end. Whooooooooooo!

I took another pregnancy test this morning, and while the line was still faint, it was darker than yesterday's, so I'm calling it. TRASHBOAT HAS LANDED!!!!!

So, I took a pregnancy test today at lunch and got a faint second pink line. Because I am an impatient freak, I took a test yesterday, too, and got bupkis on that one, so I'm thinking this is the real deal and not a test error. I am pregnant, I tentatively squee! LOL I am going to take another test in the morning with my super-steeped-in-hCG pee and see if I can get more declarative results. :)

Pregnancy tests don't work until after implantation happens (which occurs 7-9 days after fertilization), so this makes perfect sense for my cycle. I ovulated on 9/30 and probably got pregnant anywhere from the wee hours of the morning on 10/01 to a more respectable time on 10/04.

In less exciting news, Josh and I started exercising again two days ago. I weigh 196 lbs. It took me exactly a year (April 2011-April 2012) to lose 16 lbs and only a little over 4 months to put it back on. And this was a year of pretty intense daily exercise (not a lot of diet modification, though, I will admit). I guess that somewhere in the back of my mind, a very foolish part of me has been thinking that one day I'll reach this goal weight and then I can just stop exercising or something. Maybe not stop entirely but certainly slack off. And now it's been made abundantly clear to me that in order to lose and keep off weight, exercise will have to be a daily part of my life . . . FOREVER! *cue dramatic music* /Lorraine totally missing the obvious *headdesk*

My period started today, so no Trashboat this month.

This month ended up being fairly stressful because of other events in our personal lives, and so while we started out making Trashboat with abandon, neither of us felt much into it the later half of the cycle, and we clearly did not do it on that magical Trashboat making day, or you know, at all in the almost two weeks before my period started. Cardinal rule of making a Trashboat: it requires sex. LOL

Going by when I ovulated this last time, I should ovulate on October 3rd (16 days after my period begins). If I were to get pregnant this cycle, due date would be June 24.

I felt nauseated for a few days, and now I don't anymore.

A run down of my bits and bobs )

In any case, I hate all the waiting. LOL Hopefully by the middle of next week, I'll have some good news, and if not, it won't be the end of the world.

I am determined not to let my attempts to conceive define me, and I am also very aware that reproductive issues are common, and should I have them, it does not make me a special snowflake. I have a good life, a good marriage, and a beautiful daughter that I love very much. If for some reason, I can't have any more children, I'll be disappointed but not devastated.

This is totally ridic, but I am so nauseated today. I feel totes preggers--everything smells nasty, and I've been gagging like gangbusters, and the fatty food I had for lunch was super disgusto. *But* if I'm pregnant, the most pregnant I could be is a week.

I wish I had done better (or any) record keeping with Emma. I know I got sick ridiculously early, but I can't remember if I started feeling nauseated and throwing up before the positive pregnancy test or immediately after (within days).

I fully realize this could be entirely psychological (bad brain! no no no!) or that it could be a symptom of stopping my birth control. As it stands, I normally have several days in my cycle right before my period that feel a whole lot like morning sickness anyway; although my period is two weeks away exactly and I'm not in that part of my cycle, it stands to reason that quitting my birth control could have left my hormones and ladybits confused and *that*'s why I'm feeling all nasto. But that false morning sickness feeling usually isn't as pervasive and continuous as this has been today. IDK.

I'm being reminded of just how horrible unending morning sickness is. *girds her loins and grabs a sack of lemons* :(
