Shine Bright Like a Diamond

Hey y’all! So I know I haven’t posted in a long time, these twinkies take up SO much time. But today I’m going to post about wanting to help people get to Ruby and earn $500. I still want that but I have bigger plans. 
     I want more for YOU. I want to help YOU get to Diamond. Why Diamond? Because Diamond is where the magic starts to happen. Diamond is where YOU are making an average of $1900 a month (not including bonuses). Diamond is where YOU are paying off debt, saving for college, getting a new car or house, staying home with your kids or simply just breathing a little easier because you have extra income. Diamond takes hard work but it’s worth it. 

     I’m looking for TWO people who want to give this a shot. What can it hurt? This business is completely risk free! You join for $99 and get 4 wraps that are worth $99! You sell those 4 wraps for $25/skinny wrap and you’ve made your money back just like that. There are no fees or contracts, you can try it just to see if this would be a good fit for you!  
You are probably wondering what in the world is a Ruby and a Diamond and WHAT is a skinny wrap? Ask me and I’ll tell you! One thing I will tell you right now is that joining this business is changing our lives for the better.. We are already putting money into the twinkies college savings accounts!  

Please, ask me about ItWorks.

I promise I’ve been reading and keeping up with everyone’s posts, I’ve been commenting in my head and forgetting to actually type it out! Lol. Y’all are all in my prayers daily!



Prayers Please

Can you guys send up some prayers tonight and tomorrow around 1 o’clock EST for us and our first ultrasound? We would love to see a heartbeat.. Fingers crossed.
Love y’all!

Pregnancy Weekly Update

I completely understand if anyone wants to unfollow. I’m not sure what direction I’m going to take this blog in, I know I’m going to keep updating on our pregnancy and keep following everyone else’s progress. I can’t wait to read everyone’s happy ending!

On another note, I found out my SIL is pregnant and her due date is the week before mine! I’m glad I got my bfp or I would’ve been devastated (happy, but devastated). Now our husbands are ecstatic hoping for two boys! Lol.

How Far Along?: 5 weeks 1 day
Total Weight Gain: 0lbs ( I did gain about 4 pounds after we started injectables)
Maternity Clothes?. Not yet but I did get the low down on the hair band trick for when these pants get tighter!
Stretch Marks?Nope
Sleep? Perfect.
Best Moment This Week? Getting 3+ on a Clear Blue Digital Test which means, hopefully, my HCG levels are rising as they should.
MovementWaaaaay too early.
Food Cravings:No food in particular, just any food at all because as soon as I get hungry I feel as if I’m starving!
Anything making you queasy?When I start starving if I don’t eat ASAP, I feel sick.
Baby Bump:. I have a teeny pooch, but I think it’s remnants from the injectable bloat.
Gender PredictionMr. B thinks boy, I thinks girl
Labor SignsNoooo. Wayyy too early!
Belly Button In Or OutMine has always been a mix between innie and outie, but it’s still the same, waaaay too early
Wedding Rings on or off on and loose!
Happy or MoodyHAPPY!
Milestones. Making it to 5 weeks!!!

The results are in….

Beta HCG:

Greater than 40. That’s as high as they test.

Does this mean multiples? (I know we won’t really know until the ultrasound but still). I’m sweating right now. Now we just need a beta of at least 412.8 on Thursday! They scheduled my ultrasound for October 13th. I CANNOT wait!

Is this real life???
I sure hope so.

What is Happening..

I’m wondering what is happening in my reproductive area. My tummy is bloated out as if I’m 15 weeks preggers. It’s very uncomfortable and I am winded easily. I went to the mall with my bestie and got winded walking around. These should not be pregnancy symptoms and it’s FAR too early for that! I am hoping there aren’t any cysts acting up in there. Last time I had an injectable cycle I had 8 cysts (I think and they went away quietly). I’m not cramping just some weird pulling or twinges every now and then. SOMETHING is happenin’ in there!

I have an appointment with my RE on Tuesday. I can’t wait to tell him and the NP that I need a beta! I hope this all works out because I’m not sure how much more infertility I can handle.
PS. I took another wondofo this morning and it was darker than yesterday’s! We are keeping calm and waiting on the okay from the RE to be excited.
Thank you all so much for everything y’all do for me on a daily basis, whether respond to my ramblings or post your own for me to read. It’s all so comforting.

Symptom Spotting Anyone?

I have a problem. I told myself I wouldn’t test and that I would wait for the beta at my RE’s office next week. I guess I lied, lol. I tested yesterday and then again today. Really just to see if the trigger was out of my system. I don’t think it is. Last injectable cycle it was gone by 12 DPO, that is forever from now! But it wasn’t this dark at 8DPO last time, and I kind of think it’s a little tiny bit darker today than it was yesterday. Your thoughts?


The last three days I have had about 30 seconds of an actual cramp each day. I never cramp this far before my period. Maybe implantation cramping??? Wishful thinking. No spotting though. :(.

I really hate this.

On to something happy.. My bestest friend in the world got married this past weekend. I was the matron of honor. Wasn’t she beautiful?

We danced all night and since I was in my TWW I only had one drink, it was glorious! The best margarita ever.
And this weekend I get to go to the Garth Brooks concert! Woo! I’m a little bummed I’m missing my husband’s football game this Friday. Don’t worry, he doesn’t play, he coaches high school football. They are doing so good! They are 4-0! I hope everyone has a great rest of the week! Prayers for everyone else is their TWW and those with losses. My heart is with you all!

Nervous Nelly

I had my very last IUI yesterday. It absolutely broke my heart. I was doing just fine in the waiting room until I heard two separate couples get congratulated as they were leaving. They both had ultrasound paper in their hands as they walked through to the door. They held their heads down as they knew those of us in the waiting room were envious of their treasures. The nerves immediately started kicking in. My legs started shaking, I started rubbing my hands together, and one by one tears started to fall. Thankfully they called our name and we were escorted to our room, when the door shut Mr. B immediately held me and I lost it. I’m so lucky to have him. I got it together and put on my “skirt.” You know, the white paper sheet they make you wear over your bottom half. It took them a while to get to us, longer than usual. My nerves got worse and worse. I had two other moments of breakdown before they came in with the washed sperm.

The nurse practitioner performed our IUI and I didn’t feel a thing like usual. She said good luck and she hoped this was the one, I lost it again. She hugged me, then told Mr. B he needed to take me out to lunch and then shopping! Haha. She is so sweet. Mr. B had to get back to work so no shopping (even though we don’t do the shopping thing together). We did however get lunch at one of my favorite places, Jim N’ Nicks. It made me feel a little better. On the way home my stomach blew up! It was huge! And super uncomfortable. When we got home, I laid down to take a nap when I woke up the pressure was even worse, any time I moved I felt pelvic pressure. I called out sick today because of that but I feel better today, still bloated but not uncomfortable. And I thought I could use the rest, can’t hurt right?
I have decided not to test out my trigger, I’m going to wait until the two weeks is up and let them do a beta at my next appointment. I really am not sure what the next appointment is for other than to say our goodbyes I guess. Maybe they are gonna give us a free IVF cycle! A girl can dream can’t she?
