I've been so busy teaching short biology course and enjoying early summer that I haven't had time to really think about TTC stuff. It's been nice. Of course when a weekend during the TWW hits, life slows down. My class only meets M-Th. Not sure how, but all the summer classes I'm teaching this year have Fri. off. My last class (mid-July to mid-Aug) only meets T-Th. I love my job. I enjoy working with students, the hours are incredibly flexible, and my co-workers are like family. My life plan hasn't worked out how I thought it would, but I can't complain. I wish we could add another LO to our family, but I guess we'll just have to see what life brings.
Who's in the TWW now? And what's going on in your lives?
hrmm.. I either missed the surge or I'm ovulating today. my cervix is soft and high.. has been since last night. so we BD'd last night and will again tonight. I'm feeling some pinching on my right side and I felt some yesterday but I don't know.. I was trying not to focus too much on any kind of signs bc I hate stressing about it. seems like if I don't think about it, I don't stress. my ticker says I'm 1 dpo today.. hrmm.. could be either way, I'll be testing around the 31st. now it's just the waiting game, which I hate!!
Beth, I love keeping busy and not stressing too much about TTCing.. you know what they say, it happens when you least expect it. this has been the first month that I haven't stressed about it. what do you teach?? your schedule sounds fabulous!
well FF says I'm moving over here... temps are still low, just barely above cover today. If they stay up then I guess I'm in the 2WW... super crampy now. Just want to crawl back into bed..... Not overly hopeful for this cycle really, since I was expecting AF and not O :/
Good luck Crystal! I'm keeping everything crossed for you!!
Nidia, do you temp or use opks? Good luck this cycle!!
Jina, I use opks but either I missed the surge or I will have it today? we will see. I'm at work right now so I can't test but I get off at 12:30 and I'll test about 2:30ish. I don't temp because my son wakes up in the middle of the night a couple times.. so it'd be inaccurate really and I'm a light sleeper.. so I wake up a lot as well.
I'm still hanging around, and I think I'm officially into the TWW now as well!
Been CRAZY busy the past week - I wasn't able to get to the store to pick up any OPKs, so I'm going with my best guess this cycle, which is a bit disappointing.
This past weekend my brother got married, and we moved into our new house this week, so we've been on the go non-stop......and too exhausted to BD as much as we had hoped, so we've got our fingers crossed! I thought I felt some crampyness and O pain the other day, but I've pulled a muscle in my side and thrown my back out, so it's hard to differentiate between everything now.
Beth - your summer schedule sounds amazing! And hopefully being to busy to stress about TTC helps this month
Nidia....yup, same cycle! I REALLY doubt I'll be able to hold off until the 30/31st to test tho. I'm supposed to be working out of town next week, so that should at least take my mind off of the countdown to testing!
Hope you're all doing well!!
Jo - moving is so exhausting! We moved at the beginning of April and haven't stopped yet! Despite not having a ton of time ro energy to BD I got pg the week we moved in but unfortunately it ended in a CP This cycle O seems to have sneaked up on me, I was expecting AF but I may have O'd on CD 28 instead!
Nidia - When I have a surge it's pretty short, hope you didn't missed it!
Beth - I'm praying for a miracle for you! Hope that being busy will keep your mind occupied.
