Good morning ladies! I'm guessing this will be long since I haven't written in a bit. I've kept tabs on you from my phone occasionally but I hate typing on that thing so I've been saving my responses for when I could sit at my computer.
I've been keeping busy lately trying hard not to think too much about the 2ww. I made plans with friends the last few days and yesterday they totally got me hooked on playing Civilization with them. Its a pretty fun game but boy does it suck up an evening fast lol. I went to bed super super late because of that and I thought my temperature would be wacky today because of it but it didn't seem affected. Somehow my body woke up almost the same time and so this morning I'm really really missing being able to have a coffee. I like herbal tea, but I don't think I'll ever love it the way I do coffee.
I've also been puttering around the house a little bit working on stuff like curtain rods and picture hanging since we still haven't done all of that stuff since our move. We kinda just unpacked all the boxes in a great burst of excited energy when we first moved in and then we ran out of steam and left the smaller details for later. But later has been lasting a long time lol. I'm 11dpo today and I can't decide whether to test or not. On the one hand its nice to save money on tests and just be zen till I get AF or miss it but on the other hand I love to have all the info I can. I don't really feel like I have any telling symptoms. I've had pretty much nothing at all with the exception of cramping yesterday and a little this morning, but it's close enough to AF that it could just be pms.
Adorkable - It really sucks that they are making you wait so long for provera. I wonder why so many health professionals don't have faith in their patient's charting. Before I heard such stories I would have thought that they would be so glad to be working with people who were so empowered and involved with taking care of themselves.
Newbian - I can't help but smile at your POAS fiasco. I'm such a total klutz that I didn't even trust myself to try it the midstream way one time. I just found an old cup I had no use for and have been doing the dip method from the start. Have you ever seen those camping devices
that let people pee standing up in the woods? I bet those would be really handy for precision peeing on sticks lol. By the way, I love your avatar! I notice a few ladies here have pictures by their name. How do you get them?
Tear78 - I'm so excited you're officially joining us again. Weeeeeeeee!
Blanca78 - I'm jealous of your cocktail party. Ladies night here was on thursday and it just wasn't the same having virgin cosmos while everyone around me got the real thing hehe. One of the ladies did announce she was 12 weeks pregnant though so I did have one non-drinking buddy, so that was nice. She lives on my street so it would be cool if we had kids that grew up together. When I was growing up we moved around a lot so I never got to know any neighbourhood kids very well and that bummed me out. Maybe now i can live that dream vicariously though my child hahaha.
Monarchgrrl - I'm glad things are going well and that DW is finally in excitement mode. Over here I'm way more into starting a family than DH is. He's totally on board but he is not all giddy and obsessive with reading about it or testing and all that stuff and sometimes it sucks feeling all that excitement and having no one as excited as me to share it all with. But I'm sure he feels the same way when he talks about video games with a twinkle in his eye and my eyes are kinda glazed over lol.
Orandalady - Sorry your baby is a chocolate hater! But maybe this means after she/he is born you can have all the chocolate to yourself and you won't have to share. Or maybe the baby is trying to distract you from temping with other symptoms to reassure you so you can feel more zen. Either way, sounds like you made an awesome baby.
Jenne - Wow you sure know a tonne about insulin! I hope you're enjoying your weekend with your mama and that you're super productive around the house. And that that productiveness rubs off on me a little bit! Have fun BDing on DH's surprise weekend home. Go go eggy! What does second shift mean? Later shift in the day?
Okay ladies, DH is awake so I'm gonna go hang with him a while. Have a great weekend!
