7dp5dt - Keeping Busy

Before I show you today's output (which ended up seeming like way less than it really was, but that's because I haven't made dinner yet), I thought I'd catch you up on any potential "symptoms" I have.  HAHA.

  • BBS are still wicked in sports bras at this point.  Interesting new addition though, was a shooting pain starting in my right nipple and extending outward toward my armpit.  Weird, uncomfortable, and incredibly vague as far as symptoms go.  But it's the first time I've ever had that happen.
  • At Musikfest the other day, it was 100 degrees and muggy as hell.  Most of the fest is down by the river, but part is up the hill on Main St.  We headed up the street, slowly, and I nearly passed out.  A few times.  Short of breath, mild chest pain.  Nausea. I'm not usually affected by the heat that badly, and everyone else was fine.  The near fainting happened a couple of times.  It freaked me the HELL out. 
So, there you have it.  In less than 48 hours I will know.  One way or the other.  And I've realized that no matter which way it goes, I am going to end up spending a lot of the day letting people know....after I finish crying.  I am completely and utterly not sure how to pick up the phone.  Hubby may not be able to be here.  Conference call?  How do you answer that call?  That oh-so-important-life-altering call? 

Anyway, enough of that.  Here's how I kept busy today!
Pina Colada mini-loaves and....

mini-muffins...and may I say...they are DIVINE!!!

Apple Crisp (this is the easy one!)

And fresh pico de gallo, or salsa, whatever you want to call it.
This will go with rice and bean burritos for dinner .... numminess!
So, that's today's busy factor.  It's too bad I have to work tomorrow...I have a plan for egg salad, Thai Curry, and Lasagna.  Obviously, nausea is NOT an issue for me right now.  Instead, it is curtailing my insane hunger.  I am eating things in the WEIRDEST combinations.  Oh, food, how I love thee.  My grocery bill knows the answer to that!


  1. you kept busy by putting buns in the oven! How fitting! Im thinking about you!!!!

  2. They all look great but big salsa fan here! Yum!!

  3. The food pics look amazing! you are great!!! The pics also put a huge grin on my face. Craving weird food is a great sign at 7dp5dt;)
    I am on pins and needles for you, Girl!

  4. Yum! Homemade pico de gallo salsa! It looks amazing. The apple crisp also looks good. Hoping to hear the best news ever from you in the next few days!

  5. LOVELY baking - all looks so yummy!

    I have to say, it's all sounding so mightily positive BUT if it turns out not to be [which I think it won't btw - I've got super positive thoughts for you right now] know that I'll be here to listen....

    *As your personal cheer squad, I await good news from the other side of the globe*


  6. Great job on staying busy. I took a hpt and it was negative, so I convinced my Dr to let me come in tomorrow so I can get the official "Sorry sucker, you lose again" call so I can be done with the meds one day sooner.

    Best of luck to you - you sound like you are doing much better than me!!

  7. You have SUCH will power woman! I would be POAS! But I'm proud of you! I can't wait to hear your BFP news!

    So what time is dinner?? 'cause the pico looks YUMMY!!!

  8. You go girl! Might need to know that pina colada recipe! Yum! You are doing a great job at keeping busy...hoping with you!
