Bathroom makeover + A Rant

It's unfortunate that I don't feel any different yet. Maybe I'm preggo. Maybe I'm not. I know it's still "early" by all accounts, but I keep praying to God for morning sickness and no period. 

On Friday June 13th, I had my progesterone levels tested with the hospital lab. The results came back with the level of 41, which is great. Anything above a level 3 means that I definitely ovulated. In the past, my levels ranged around 18-20, so 41 is awesome. This is due in part to the injectables that I had though - so I can't get too too excited. This number also means that if it continually rises, my body can easily sustain a pregnancy. 

I thought for sure I would get to take a pregnancy test this week, but the nurse told me that I would have to wait 10 days from my progesterone lab (which was Friday) before I could do a pregnancy test. Well shoot a monkey.

Sooooo... Monday June 23rd should be when I can test (if I haven't started my period). I am also unable to do an at-home pregnancy test because the injectables that I had contained hCG. In at-home pregnancy tests, hCG is what is detected to give a positive sign. Therefore, I could test and potentially get a false positive.

Preliminary talks with my hubby made us decide that we may end up pursuing IVF if this does't work. Which also means that we are going to take on a lot of debt since there is no way that we randomly have 10k sitting anywhere. 
<Begin Rant>
Can I also say that it annoys the absolute heeby jeebies out of me when people complain about pregnancy and how they are feeling? I swear, I am going to flip a switch if I hear one more person say, "ugh, I am just so tired of being pregnant!" God knows that I have prayed for a healthy baby (or babies), at all costs during my pregnancy. Trust me, God knows my heart and desires. That being said, I am fine being on bed rest for months on end. I am fine throwing up every single morning. I am fine with that. I just cannot handle one more complaint.
<End Rant>

I swear I am a happy camper, and as such, I am going to switch subjects now.

Let's talk about America, shall we?
Obsession is a complete understatement. How did I not find this cute bathroom decor sooner? Thanks to my dear friend, Kohl's Department Store, when I laid my eyes on this baby, in my cart she went. No other thought went into it. Um, p.s. my frugal self was pleased to see that it was on major clearance. 

Anyways, I promise to post some more picture of our bathroom very soon! I am finishing a couple of touches and then I'll share!

  1. Praying, praying, praying sweet girl! So sorry to hear that you'll have to wait even longer than you anticipated for that pregnancy test, but you're so right...God knows your heart and your desires. Such a blessing that your numbers were great on Friday! :) And that bathroom decor is adorable! Loving the plaid look!

  2. Praying for you! I know these 10 day will be tough, try to keep a positive mind. My boss tried for 6 years to get pregnant and countless infertility treatments. They finally decided to adopt and were matched with an expecting mom. She then got pregnant and they continued with the adoption so they have kids 3 months apart. She went on to have 2 additional healthy pregnancies. God has a plan for you and you will be a Mom!!

  3. Bathroom looks great!! Keep yourself occupied this week and don't do a home pregnancy test. There are so many that do and it's always just a let down. Wait for the beta test. This next week will fly!! I have my fingers crossed for you! IVF is a good option if this doesn't work and you're ready to take on a lot of meds and spend a lot of money, but most of us would do anything to have a baby! Prayers your way!!

  5. I love your new bathroom décor!! I was at a bachelorette in April and I know one girl there really rubbed a lot of others in attendance the wrong way complaining about how she couldn't drink b/c she was pregnant. It was so bratty and ungrateful, not to mention just childish!
