Justice and I cross-posted so I hope it's okay to re-post in here. Justice, I'm so happy your in-laws are gone!
Sorry I dropped out. I've been having a ton of stress lately and I've been trying to stay away from the Internet. I may be in and out.
Polka, I hope your computer starts working again soon.
Joey's mom, I hope your dh does something for Valentine's and I hope your son's teeth come in without too much fuss.
Greensleeves, I will eat your mushy shortbread cookies if you want them taken off your hands.
Savannah, here's to a good two weeks!
Kylesean, glad you're enjoying it more!
I've been feeling weirdly crampy since Saturday morning. Sometimes it feels menstrual, sometimes intestinal, sometimes like nervousness and sometimes like none of the above. There's a TREMENDOUS amount of stress around here, the biggest thing being that my parents are being evicted from their house after 20 years and they both have serious health problems and my mom has packrat-itis that has crossed the line into being a psychiatric disorder. They live 600 miles away and I'm going to have to find the money and transportation to go there and clean out their house. I think my uncle is going to help me, but still!
The funny thing I realized is, if we had conceived the first time we tried, I'd be giving birth in the midst of all of this!
I woke up with a high BBT this morning. I went through all my past charts (42 of them!) yesterday and I had a high temp on Day 27 one cycle once, but I've never had one on day 28. I haven't had a luteal phase longer than 12 days in a long time (although I have had them, just not recently). So I'm kind of thinking this might be it, but of course I can't go around telling people when I'm not sure, but of course I can't think about anything else. Neither of us has to work today so we were supposed to sleep in, but dh set the alarm for early so I could take my temp at the regular time. When I told dh about the high temp this morning, he said, "Uh-oh," hugged me, and WENT BACK TO SLEEP. Can you believe it?!
I actually HAVE a lab pregnancy test scheduled for tomorrow, because I had planned on getting my wisdom teeth removed the next day. For numerous reasons (like, we can't afford BOTH dental surgery AND a trip to my parents' house), I changed my mind about having that done and canceled the surgery a few days ago. If my period doesn't come by tomorrow, I wonder if I should go ahead and have the lab test done anyway? We'll have to pay for it, but there wouldn't be the same amount of "is this a REAL line" as with a hpt and aren't you supposed to have clinic confirmation anyway?
I hope my period doesn't come this time. I know it still might.
