I had similar thoughts as I watched kids having fun at the parades we went to on the 4th.
Adding to the string of bad news, AF is paying me a visit as well. I think I'm settling in to TTC as the new normal. This month I was not as stressed/worrying about things and found the 2WW flew by. I'll be trying OPKs hardcore this month (tried last month but didn't POAS nearly often enough to catch it ... maybe once every 2 days!) so that gives me something different to channel my impatience at.
Good luck and happy summer to all!
