8dpIUI. Doing pretty well with not overly obsessing. Taking daily OPKs and the darn hcg from the trigger shot has not left my system yet. Have yet to take today’s test though. Can’t take hpts “for real” when they’d be a fake +…. I alternate between having swollen boobs and deflated boobs, hurting ovaries, then no pain whatsoever, yaddie, yaddie. At least my weight gain was temporary and I am back to within a pound of what I had gotten down to. Yay! (No jinxies…)
So, instead, I am baking. I made some awesome banana bread with some of the vanilla bean sugar (still stinks, lol) a few days back. Today I am making both orange-cranberry bread and apple cinnamon bread- both from starter. They are in the oven. YUM!
We discovered that (wild? neighbors?) mama cat (whom we cannot catch to get fixed) decided to have more babies… again in my backyard. Thankfully she only had 2 this time. Unfortunately, last night was a good freeze so hopefully they made it. I have a warmed up insulated house with towels and cushions for them, and some use it, but the wee 2 1/2? weeks kittens were not in it last night.
I am possibly done with Christmas shopping, I need to make another list check and maybe 80% done with wrapping. Still need to make 3 pans of bar cookies and some decorated dipped caramel candies. Going well this year.
Brendan is running around “practicing kung fu in the dungeons” in his favorite transformers hoodie once again enjoying our plastic ball air pump and Andy is running around with a set of 6 winnie the pooh figurines asking me to enact skits with them where Tigger ends up bouncing them down and asking me to play catch with him. Oh, and he FINALLLY likes the Geomag G-baby magnetic blocks, now that he is nearly 28 months and the box says for 9-24 months.
