Beingmommy, GISDiva, and Xerxella Thank you SO much for your kind words and encouragement. I really needed it this weekend!! Things finally seem back to normal, as normal as it will ever be, that is As I said, the juggling and balancing act is an ongoing ever present fact of life.
Dakipode I vote Frosty Moon as it is indeed chilly. And I think of snuggling, and other activities to stay warm, once the cold weather starts.
Xerxella and GISDiva My DH has also been objecting to the frequency of performances that I am asking for with TTC. After two days in a row ~2 weeks ago, around O, when I suggested another go the third day "just to be sure, " he called me devil woman, jokingly, truly, and with a smile, and told me he is no longer a teenager. I get it but still a bit disappointing. And I just want to say that I think you are very justified in feeling angry/jealous/whatever! towards the pregnant relatives/friends/acquaintances. I still think you're both good people!! It is more zen to admit your feelings, in my opinion anyway.
AFM I am 10 DPO today. Broke down and tested (again) this morning, BFN I am trying to be all zen and s@&T but it does not seem to be happening this month!! I am obsessively symptom spotting, essentially driving myself batty! If only my rational brain could take over...
