Morayo’s Mountain 18: We’re going to beat this thing!


September 10th, 2009

I still haven’t called to schedule an appointment with the doctors. I think on some level, I just don’t want to go!

I think I am 3DPO today…and I feel the same as every month, nothing much!!!! Unless energy spurts are a symptom??? I have done the equivalent of two peoples’ work today (much to the amazement and delight of my manager), and now I am cleaning the house from top to bottom!!! Oooh, cleaning! That sounds like nesting. That has to be a symptom right??? Yeah right! Lol!


September 11th, 2009

Well, 4DPO today, and still not a single symptom. I am actually kinda glad. I don’t want my hopes raised again like last month.

I’m going to try not to think about things too much. I’ve got two weeks off work, and we have soooo many nice things planned. I can’t wait.


September 13th, 2009

6DPO today, and I got my normal temp dip this morning. I still don’t have a single symptom. Not sure when to start testing.


September 14th, 2009

I’m so not sure about the testing. I think I might give it a miss this month! It’s sooooo depressing seeing that single white line month after month.

I had a great day off today. I slept really late, and Babs bought me breakfast in bed. Fattening croissants, dripping in butter, and a huge mug of hot cocoa!

We also went to a florist near the house, to buy some grass seed for the garden. There were about a million different types, and as I was dithering and asking what Babs thought, he said that obviously we needed to get the ‘family lawn’ bag because that’s what we’ll be needing!

Sooooooo in love with him today! He’s done and said all the right things.

I love it when Babs and I are on vacation at the same time!

It was yet another wonderful day today! We went to a lovely café near our house for a wonderful English breakfast, after which we drove all the way to Elegushi beach (Epe was our original destination, but we had to be realistic, considering it is smack in the middle of the week, and not everyone is on holiday like we are). Strolling in the sand, and playing in the water was so so therapeutic, I can’t even put it into words.

On the way home, we stopped by my Parents’ house, really briefly. They would have gone ballistic if they heard we had come to the island, and hadn’t stopped by.

As far as symptom spotting goes, my temp dropped a bit this morning, but as I am having a month of not obsessing and symptom spotting (but just for the record – no symptoms to be spotting!), I am not going to worry about any drop. Anyway, it might go up again tomorrow.


September 18th, 2009

Another temp drop. Same thing happened yesterday.

I am feeling really emotional today. I guess AF is on her way. I need to make that doctor’s appointment. Damn, damn, damn!


September 20th, 2009

The witch is on her way. Two days of spotting and cramping.

Got to phone the doctors tomorrow.


September 21st, 2009

Well, CD1! The witch is finally here!

We had a doctors’ appointment this afternoon at 4:30. We were lucky that there had been a cancellation, so were able to squeeze ourselves in, short notice. Why does that happen when you don’t want to go, but when you are desperate for an appointment you have to wait for days?!

Anyways, it went better than we hoped. We didn’t get to see the nice doctor Babs wanted to, but the one we saw was nice too. Only negative is that he appeared only just out of medical school!! He was so young!!!!!

We went through the story, because he hadn’t read our notes, and he proceeded to refer to us to a fertility specialist.

I feel better now we’ve made that step. It was very hard to admit defeat though. On to the next waiting game now.

I’m just terrified that we’ll go through these tests, and they’ll find a whole bunch of things wrong…but I am sort of relieved that things are going to get moving at last.


September 25th, 2009

AF has left the building, never to return!! I’ve decided! LOL!

The sun is shining, it’s Friday, and Babs and I are finally off to Epe for the weekend. I know we’re going to beat this thing. Definitely!
