I'm a grandma!

To puppies that is!
Our sweet Sammie gave birth this morning to 4 healthy, teeny tiny, beautiful puppies!

I got the privilege of watching the very last pup be born and the whole process of mama eating the after birth and everything. It has been a very long morning!
DH woke up around 5:45 and woke me up. 1 pup had already been born and whining and squirming and one was just out of the after birth. By 9:30am, all four were born and everyone was exhausted. DH was already at work, but did have an hour to stop by around 11 and check on his grand puppies. We had a celebratory lunch together!
I'm going to post some pictures of these cutie pies, my grand pups.


Daddy checking out his firstborn puppy!

Right after fourth was born!

Such a good Mama!

The order in which they were born starting from Top Left corner to bottom right corner :)

If you're wondering the breed: they are wholeheartedly mutts! :) Mommy is a pug chihuahua and Daddy is a Maltese, Pomeranian, Cocker Spaniel mix.

We believe there are two girls and two boys!

We've had tons of visitors today and now everyone is relaxing and settling in. My dear Sammie is such a good mommy and she did so well. It is amazing how they instinctively know what to do and the entire birthing process.

Definitely a memory I'll cherish for a lifetime.

I am quite sure that is not a real word. But, I think I'll done it real for this post.
I'm on a Preseed binge. Daily. Almost a week straight now (minus one day)!!!
(hello, fertile window!)

On the box it says "Seriously Fun Baby Making"

Welp, heck yah!

It's fun alright ;) Let's just hope the last two words come to fruition.

Making babies, making babies making babies!!!!

That is pretty much all that is new in my TTC life.
We've decided to use Preseed monthly for the next several months.

We'll just have to see if it assists in making a BABY in my body :)

Happy Hump Day, Folks!

Son of a Crack Nut, what?

What is this? I've had the most odd cycle, probably in the history of my menstruating. Seriously. Af was only 4 days long. Um... ?? First time for everything?

Then, four days after she was "gone," there is a gush of old dark brown blood. Then once every few days after that. What is this? It is now only apparent when I wipe...sometimes. Some days there is nothing at all. I've had some pretty sharp pains below my belly button. Seriously dragging for days now. Emotional.

I've been pretty sick for about a week. I still function but headaches have caused some serious puking. Also lots of tummy troubles.. I mean LOTS. Who knew a body could have that much, um... poop?
I got ALL freaked out like, what if... what if???

BFN yesterday.

Seriously? I lose weight, stress less, eat better, and my period wants to act like this??

Dear uterus and ovaries, I'm disappointed in you!
Yours truly.

Anyone experience this before? Tips? Advice? Suggestions? Thoughts?

Cycle Ticker!
