10 dpo-
still haven't gotten that "definitely pregnant" intuition thing i had both times i was pregnant before. so honestly, it could go either way. i think i'd be fine if it were negative. i've come to terms with my body. i'm not infertile! =] so i can wait a little longer without feeling like i'm walking on hot coals. haha. (it sounds ridiculous, but i'm sure you other ttc-ers know the feeling of despair when you're struggling with infertility..) but i can stroll through the journey now that i know i can do it. i'm at peace. =] finally.

i wasn't going to test at all this month, but who am i kidding. haha. even if i'm not obsessed this month, i'd like to know if i'm waiting for a period or if i should call my dr. so i'm going to sneak a test at 12dpo. i don't want to get DH's hopes up this month so i'll only tell him about it once i know the result. just a casual "not pregnant this month. we'll try again next time. see you after my period. =]" that's the plan.

but in the meantime, i'm gonna get tattooed to give myself a little reward for all the hard work and emotional struggle. i thought about memorializing my lost pregnancies, but i think i'll just leave that in my heart. i'm not sure which of my tattoo ideas i will get, yet. but i'm thinking either my chest piece, a side and hip piece (which i'm afraid would stretch a ton during pregnancy), or both my feet... i'm gonna brainstorm some more and go to the tattoo shop with my hubby when he gets home from school. =] can't wait!

so hungry... but i just don't wanna feed myself!

11dpo- tattoo. awesome. painful. exciting.
my pain tolerance amazed me. half of my left leg is covered. i sat through the whole thing without even asking for a break.
i'm pretty hardcore... hahaha.
this pain and upkeep will definitely keep my mind off ttc for a few days. i cant sit down!! who knew a couple little lines creeping onto your butt would make life so difficult. hahahah. in the meantime, i'll laugh at myself. =]

not testing tomorrow. i'm not convinced. =] nap time.
