Yep, you read that correctly: CD 1. AF came today in full force. Cramps, the whole deal. It's a relief, compared to the two weeks of PMS I've experienced this cycle. A 56 day cycle is not my idea of fun. All that I'm concerned with now is that I might be away when I ovulate. I've promised Lisa that I'll babysit on the 6th and 7th, and I'll be staying with mom from Sunday night until Easter Sunday. That's the 4th - 11th, and it's quite possible that I might ovulate during that time, CD 5 - 12. I don't want to miss that egg because I'll be out of town! Brad won't be with me until next Friday night..
Oh, I hope this cycle turns out!
Cramps are getting to me now, I'm going to bed!

Well, another day of bleeding is done! I am so nervous now that I'll ovulate next week while I'm at moms and Brad isn't around. I just hope I don't O until at least CD 12, at the earliest! I guess Oing in and of itself would be something to be proud of, regardless of whether or not a baby is made this month. But, I want a baby so bad! A girl would be so wonderful. Connor and I spent the day hanging out with his new "girlfriend", Kamryn, and her mom, Kris. We had so much fun! Connor and Kamryn loved to hug and kiss each other, and Kamryn (who is 2.5) kept calling Connor "her baby". She's such a sweetie!
Tonight, we're babysitting our neighbor's daughter , Kristen (so many Ks today!) Finally, she passed out at around 10 pm and she's asleep on our couch now. She's a really great kid. I was nervous about babysitting a 6 year old, as I'm not really familiar with the age group. She's fun, though! Although she's hard to keep entertained, she's fairly polite and imaginative. All this just confirms.. I need a baby girl! I love my baby boy, but there is something just so fun about playing dolls and braiding hair. I can't see how much help I'm going to be at soccer, baseball, etc, etc, when I was never good with those things myself!

Yeah, I know! I've been deliquent here. There's not too much going on, but we've been pretty busy. I've been trying hard to study alot, and decided not to go to my mom's house this week so that I can take a test or two while Brad's on day shift ( 4 am - noon). We have an FRG meeting tomorrow night, too, that I have to be there for. And, Connor's last Gymboree class is tomorrow morning, and we can't miss that! But, now I'm scared that I will miss my O date by visiting with mom NEXT week. Worries never cease!
I just want AF to be DONE WITH so that I can head towards an eggy for this month.

No CM yet, but maybe that's a GOOD thing? In my last cycle, I had early EWCM, but nothing came of it (I don't even think I ovulated at all). I'm talking.. I had EWCM the DAY after I stopped AF! It's been two days since I had any spotting at all, and no EWCM yet. I'll buy a pack of ovulation tests this weekend, and hopefully that'll give me some clue with the big O is coming.
Connor and his girlfriend from across the street got to have an easter egg hunt today.. tons of fun. He loves putting eggs in the basket!
