indeed... coming out of vacation mode is a bit tough.. All I got for Christmas was AF. So here's to another New Year... another month cause I plan to celebrate ( at least a little). I will give it the good ol' lets ring in the New Year try. So looking forward to the No Stressing/No Obsessing group for January.

Where are you in your cycle: Day 6
Symptoms if they apply: Not really symptoms of pregnancy or Clomid, but I'm a MESS right now. I got a yeast infection from antibiotics after I started the provera, couldn't treat it for a couple days because we spent Christmas in a town so small they only had an Allsups (which doesn't sell vagisil lol). I'm recovering from the Wisdom tooth removal, but I can't actually relax and recover because we have to fix up our old apartment befor we turn in the key. And we have like three days to do that for a place we lived in for two years. I'm quite exausted.
When are you thinking of testing: Not all that soon unfortunately :(
Thoughts: I want everything to slow down. I want to lay down on the couch and let my husband baby me for a few days. He's not feeling so good either though, we're both going to just crash when this is over. And stuff will be going on then too!
Appointments: You know, because of how the system is set up, making my appt to get tested on day 21 means actually going to the clinic and standing there until they do it, so where I should have made the appt on day 1, I still haven't made it. I'm going to try and do it today, but god it's got to be so complicated. Every time I call, the front desk doesn't seem to know how to do anything but transfer me to a nurse who can't make that appt (that would be the front desk's job, they just don't seem to know how to do it unless I'm standing right in front of them), or an answering machine that NEVER gets responded to.
Any new regimes, ie herbs, medications, mantras etc: I will say this. All the unrelated stress is making me not even think about fertility problems. Which is good. Seeing my newborn niece the other day, and seeing my husband getting to hold a baby for the first time...nearly killed me. Also, I think his mom tried dropping a hint the other day. One of his presents was socks and underwear, but she put it in a diaper genie box before they wrapped it. She doesn't know we've been trying, and I don't really want to tell most people yet, so any hints have to be taken with a smile while I just sit there wanting to go cry because damn it I'm trying and just can't seem to. Although...the look on Scott's face was HILARIOUS.
Do you have any stress triggers: Everything is a stress trigger right now. I want to go back to sleep.
What is working to help you be stress-free this cycle: unrelated stress lol :P
Partners feelings if applicable: He feels like crap too. He seems to be coming down sick, or is pushing himself too hard or something. I think spending so much time with the baby the other day hit him with the realization that we've been trying since January, I still haven't ovulated on Clomid, and there's a very real possibility we may not be able to get pregnant, or at least any time soon. I have to deal with this every time I take my pills, but I think he hasn't really had it made personal till now.
Plans for this weekend: The weekend? I haven't been able to plan past the next two days!
