I have a few hours to myself this morning. I rarely get these times, so I try to take advantage of them. My plan is to use it to go through some of Miss M's things, shower, and blog--albeit, not necessarily in that order!
I have a big rearranging project that I want to do, to make better use of her closets. I also want to empty out her crib, which has become a holding space for clean laundry. I want to make a really serious attempt at transitioning her to the crib, as we are still co-sleeping. It's been working out completely fine, but if I get pregnant in coming months, I know I will want her in her own bed, as sleeping will become difficult enough for me without getting kicked in the head by a toddler. She's been sleeping really well lately, so we should get some pretty long stretches out of her in the crib. I plan to do it like we've done everything else--gradually. I don't subscribe to "cry it out." If we go slowly and at her pace, I expect we'll get there eventually on this, and I'm in no particular hurry. It freaks her out to wake up alone in her crib, so it's really just a matter of getting her used to it, which will take time.
I've decided that I'll start testing either tonight or in the morning. I know it's probably too early, but I want a good baseline. I'm somewhere between 7dpo and 9dpo today, depending on when I ovulated. I think I'm probably closer to 7dpo, but I'm just not sure. I've tested positive at 9dpo with my other pregnancies, including the successful one with Miss M, so I think it makes sense to start testing today, with the thought that I'll probably test positive Tuesday or Wednesday if I am actually pregnant (which I still seriously doubt). I need to run out this morning and buy some new tests--even as expensive as they are, I'm going to break down and do it! I'll probably test once a day for the next few days. I could save myself some money and see how it goes, but why?
Shower and closets and pee sticks it is, then!
