I don’t know of you guys noticed I wasn’t posting a ton, but for the last month I’ve been preoccupied. My dearest wife turns 30 this month, and so I’ve been planning a (David Bowie-themed) surprise party for her.
Last night it went off without a hitch. A few people who told me they would come, didn’t (five), but the rest of those who said they’d make it did, and it was fun, there was pizza and ice cream cake for all. (And a lot left in our fridge.)
I did manage to surprise my wife, I’m a horrible liar when it comes to her, so I was pleasantly surprised that she hadn’t caught on. I really couldn’t have done it without help from my neighbor (who stored the cake) and my roommate (who got all of the last-minute setup done while I was dragging her on a trip to an electronics store under the guise of looking at TVs – our current one is 13 years old and was free with a cell phone I bought in 2002).
Anyway, it went well, we had fun, a toddler decided to go for her boobs when he was saying goodbye (the tot’s mom was mortified a bit).
Any way, question for those ladies who have used supplemental progesterone – how many days did it take for the full-crazy to happen? I’m just wondering when I should expect the side effects to get worse. I’m on day 3 and the only side effect I’m really noticing is being less regular, but that kind of happens at this point in my cycle anyway.
I’m testing out the trigger this month (because I have a ridiculous number of pregnancy tests and this is our last cycle although I don’t remember to test every morning). It’s five days post trigger and it’s still very faintly positive. I’d be surprise if it’s going to remain positive for too much longer.
