No pressure, eh?
I'm doing all right--yesterday, I was SO cranky, I have no idea how turtle put up with me. We went to IKEA (which is wholly unrelated to the crankitude) and ended up buying a FABULOUS rug for the tadpole room in primary rainbow colors, as well as simple 8.5 x 11 frames in the same colors (we're planning to have the Small Friends create some art for some of the frames, and use the others to showcase art by our kids). We also picked up these cool lamps that mount right on the wall and give a soft light through plastic shapes--we chose two blue stars and a yellow crescent moon. We wanted to get some blue shelves, too, but they were sold out. I don't know whether we're beckoning the tadpole's soul, exactly, but it seems like the right thing to do just now.
I realized yesterday that part of the reason I was so owly was because my chart doesn't look like it did last cycle--but, uh, HELLO! NO PREGNANCY LAST CYCLE! I'm such a dork, I swear.
I have not a single symptom that I can pinpoint. If I squint, it's possible that my breasts are fuller. If I poke at them, they're tender!
The most noticeable thing is that I have a HUGE amount of energy the past few days--it's not yet 3 p.m. and so far I've gone to church, mowed the lawn, cut down a tree, filled all the bird feeders, played with and fed the cats, and watched a movie. After I'm done on-line, I'm going to clean the kitchen and get started on the tadpole room.
Janie, I'm so sorry for your loss.
And twilight girl! Woohoo! I'm psyched--you know how Jilian said she's always had a feeling that she and I would be in a DDC together? I've always had a feeling that you and I would get pregnant around the same time--I have no idea why.
