Ugh! Waiting to O is taking FOREVER this cycle. Lol. I'm a little concerned since this is our first cycle back TTC since the loss that I'll go insane during the 2WW, but right now not being in the 2WW is driving me nuts. I hav 25 ICs just sitting there in the bathroom, looking at me, waiting to be used once I'm 10DPO or so. Lol. I know my chances are probably at least as good as they were when I got pregnant last time since I respond so well to the Femara but it's driving me nuts waiting to find out if I'm still responding well to it. I have my u/s to check my eggs on Monday. The week was going by fairly quickly until today and now it's all going super slow. I hope I can stay busy all weekend!
I'm so sorry Leah ! Everything about TTC drove me nuts and now that I'm pregnant not knowing everything is okay is driving me nuts. I can't wait until I have a baby in my arms ! I think that is the only thing that will allow me to calm down I hope that WTO starts to go by a little faster.
What are you up to right now to keep busy?
We are planning a party for my in-laws at the end of July so I'm working on that. We are also taking a week vacation in July. And I'm decorating our room for the first time. All to keep busy and try not to focus on the baby, but they are all temporary fixes !
I hear you Leah! I hate waiting to O and the 2ww. this last cycle went so super fast for me cuz i thought we were done trying. I was so sure i threw out my prenatals and everything. I checked with an OPK on CD 16 on a whim and it was SUPER positive and DH decided to take a shot and try. So it was a whirlwind for me because I had no idea we were even gonna try LOL. I was concentrating on moving on and trying to find a job. Now I have been interviewing and I'm pg so i don't know if it's such a good time for me to start back into the workforce. ugh! Sorry... didn't need to vent in your thread. But i hear you on it being slow. I think when we can get our minds on something else it goes by so fast. That is the point I was trying to make this whole time but it kinda took a round a bout way LOL. Do you have a favorite Author? I love to read and right now I'm reading Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series and they are the best books I've read in a LONG time! I look for things I can do with the kids where i can just sit back and read they are that good LOL Might help the time go by faster for you GL Hun!

Thanks ladies! Gina you can vent any time you want. I'm all open to vents whenever or wherever they happen. Lol. Without venting we'd all go insane. Haha. Today I visited my mom and spent most of the day with her so today went by relatively fast. I'm finding though that when I'm done with everything I start to go insane. I guess I just got to bored tonight. I was fine until DH and I were done with dinner and there was nothing interesting on tv. I just started thinking and couldn't stop! This weekend is going to make me nuts too. My mom is going to be out of town for 10 days and probably out of cell reception area. Calling her all the time is another way I deal. Lol. My poor mommy. She handles the freak outs so well though.
This weekend it looks like DH and I will be taking my parents to the bus station for them to leave for their trip and maybe go on a small hike. We've already started DTD just in case I O early. So that gives us something to do that's somewhat productive. Lol. Normally we're insanely busy on the weekends going camping or out of town somewhere...it would be the one weekend I wish was crazy busy that we have less to do. I'll come up with something I'm sure. Maybe I'll just sleep a lot. I've been so tired. DH says it seems to him I'm always exhausted around O time so maybe that's a good sign.
I need to just go to bed now...oh and I have a LOT of favorite authors. Unfortunately, since I'm not working this summer I've already read everything that I'm interested in right now...in fact I'm rereading everything and am on the last book of one series...I might read World Without End next. That's the sequel to the Pillars of the Earth book but those are a little harder to get into sometimes. OK...bed time. Lol.
Leah I'm re-reading the twilight series right now on my sister in laws kindle account. It's not my favorite but it does help fill the gaps when I can't make my mind stop ! I'm also listening to the wheel of time series which I am loving but I find that my mind wanders more when I'm listening right now so I haven't been doing it as much. DH and I love Christopher Moore. His books are hilarious. DH is reading his newest Sacre Bleu right now and then I am going to read that.
Thanks girl! I think I may have found a new series to read that sounds interesting enough. I've really been liking the dystopian books lately so I'm going to try another series I think. I can't remember the name or the author at the moment...good thing I saved it on Amazon. Lol. I already read Divergent and Insurgent twice each. I've read the twilight series about 5 million times now. Haha. I've read all the Cassandra Clare books repeatedly. I have all 7 of them. I've also read the Graceling series which is what I'm rereading now. I'm almost done with the last book again. And I read Pillars of the Earth which is super long. I read a lot...Lol. Maybe DH will let me get this new one I found this weekend. That'll help.
I know I know! I thought last cycle the 2ww would be awful and it was lol but I didn't expect the waiting to O to be as bad as it was either. I fretted something fierce that I wasn't gonna O at all. It's sucking this time too I'm POAS (OPK) two times a day just for something to do!! I've been trying to stay off the boards so as not to obsess more than I already am! I need to meditate or something lmao!
Well at least we know we're not alone. And we're cycle buddies Tiffany! I totally took an hpt last night. Lol. I didn't feel good and I can't help but panic that something is going to happen in a different way and I'll get pregnant but not know it soon enough and then lose it again or something. Ugh! Just two more days and then I get my u/s and I'll know how things are measuring up. Plus DH is officially off work for the weekend so I won't be alone. Lol. Now I'm getting excited! I hope so bad that my appt goes well. Oh and last night I noticed my cm changing like it tends to before O. I hope that's a good sign!
