Morayo’s Mountain 46: Seven Years


October 4th, 2012

Well, it’s AF time! And two solid days early, for that matter.

I felt awful, so I came home from work early and snuggled up on the sofa with a hot water bottle. It’s the little things that actually make one feel a bit better…

I’m having a proper woe is me day!

I’m fed up TTC’ing now. I’m fed up pretending I don’t care everyone has left me behind. I’m fed up with not being a mum when I should be.

I’m just fed up!

Today feels much brighter. I think a big glass of wine, a few tears and a lot of hugs with Babs last night helped. Thanks you two, means a lot you’re still here when everyone else left.

We got the results of his latest SA this morning. The great news is that his count has gone from 5 million to 22 million!! On the downside, only 2% of those are ‘normal’. We just can’t win!

Anyhoo, I still figure that is 440,000 which are normal and swimming and ready for my egg though, right?? And we do only need 1, which means we have 339,999 which are surplus to requirements?!!

It might not be great but it’s the most we’ve ever had to play with, so celebrations for us tonight!! Read that as any excuse for cake!!!! LOL!

We’re out for a posh dinner on Friday night to celebrate our wedding anniversary (7 years! Seven!!!!). So that’s something to look forward to!

I’ve had a really great weekend!

We had the most amazing night out on Friday. I ate more food in that one meal than I think I’ve eaten all month!!! We also drank rather a lot of cocktails.

Saturday, Babs was at early to play football, so I did the housework in the morning and after lunch I had a quick nap and slept for 5 hours!!!! I must have needed it because I was asleep again by 9:30, and slept right though till this morning.

Today has been bit of a busy one, but in a nice way. I did the laundry, did loads of cooking and baking.

Best of all, I go to work tomorrow but I have Thursday and Friday off so it’s a short week for me. I can’t wait.

Ovulation is due tomorrow, or Wednesday…and I feel really really rough. I’ve got a stonking migraine, and all sorts of aches and pains. Why today?!?! I’m not even sure Babs will be in the mood for anything, as he’s been in training all week and is bound to be tired when he gets home!

I just hate these months when you just ‘have to’ and it isn’t because you want to.

I’m still suffering with the migraine. Or maybe I’m having a second one. Not too sure!! So, we’re out this month. I just couldn’t face it while feeling so crappy. I just couldn’t bring myself to return to the insemination cups!

I took yesterday and today off, so at least I didn’t have to struggle through work.

Today has been a duvet day. I dozed my way through Beaches, Steel Magnolias and Step Mom!!! I love watching old films. Or bits of old films as it turned out.

Well, it turns out I had a bit too much relaxation the last time, and fell ill proper afterwards. So, I ended up in bed for the better part of last week, with Babs fussing all over me. But it wasn’t all bad, as I did manage to get breakfast in bed, a bubble bath run for me, a trip to the cinema to see Skyfall, ice cream, many cups of tea, and lunch in bed…all thanks to my awesome hubby. Aren’t I a lucky girl!

I’m thinking he’s probably spoilt me enough today. I’ll have to confess to feeling better tomorrow. Although I still sound rough!

P.S: Skyfall was AMAZING!!  I’m not a huge James Bond fan but I really, really loved it. I could quite happily go watch it again tomorrow! It was a great way to get TTC off my mind!

But I can’t keep TTC off my mind for too long. We need to continue working our way to our baby, don’t we!


My name is Morayo. I’m a TTC Warrior…and I’m far too stubborn to give up.
