We are so very close to insemination. I am still having weird dreams. Last night it was about buying gummy hippos at a store and being preggie. Um, okay. We should be inseminating May 4th and 5th as long as my cycle is as regular as it has been! I have not built that schedule yet at work, so I think I am going to schedule those days off for me. L should be able to come to the first one and then a friend of ours can come to the second or I can go solo. I am doing all kinds of strange stuff for fertility. L REALLY wants me to drink Fertilitea, but my cycle is so normal now, I don’t want to throw it off. I am burning Moxa on myself everyday and will be getting acupuncture once a week in the coming weeks. I probably will go get some on the day of insemination also. I am wearing a “fertility bracelet” that is made of quartz, moonstone and some red stone that starts with a C. I am not drinking and felt pretty bad about going to Trivia night where people around me chained smoked the whole night, so I will not do that again during this process! I am walking and with L on weight watchers, I am also eating healthy. I am ready! Just waiting on that egg to do it’s business and we are a go.
I did have a little freak out about working and being preggie. As you all know, I am not sure the reaction at work will be a positive one from my bosses. I think the staff will go crazy with joy, but my current boss does not get why anyone would want to be pregnant and thinks kids are just a money drain. I have been asked to push out people or write off people who are preggie, but that was by a boss who is no longer there. All in all, I am not sure how it will go over, which is why I am nervous to tell them about the process. I am also sure that once I do tell them, they can’t do anything about it, but if they find out now, they might try to. Not only that, but I work long, run around all over the place, deal with angry clients, days. I am not sure if being preggie is going to effect that or not. I guess you don’t really know until you try. Fortunately, L is very supportive and if I need to go to bed right after work, she will tuck me in.
I am also not sure what Dr. we will end up seeing once I am preggie because of the thyroid. I am guessing my birthing plan with midwives might not work, but maybe there is a more modern birthing center set up at a hospital that I could use. We are still a ways off from that, so I am not really worried about that quite yet.
I will see my current Dr. on the 3rd day of my period to run some tests, so I will have more info then. I am going in with a huge list of questions, so I should feel more settled after that. Either way, I am mega excited and will keep all of you posted!
