    WOW.

    6dpo (well, I will be when I wake up in the morning)

    This is the first month since coming off the bcp that I'm pretty sure that I actually DID ovulate.

    I had the cm pattern and it's dried and sticky now (as opposed to the continuious wet and ewcm that I had last cycle) **I know, tmi, but it's my journal, right?**

    But I'll be damned if I can handle these boobs! They hurt so bad!

    I told Matt tonight as we were shopping for groceries...."either I'm pregnant or you're getting WAY too rough with the girls"

    He told me they felt bigger (tonight at home, not in the middle of the grocery store...although that would have been funny) I told him that he was dreaming.... (although between you and me, I kind of thought they did too)

    Well, we'll see, eh? About a week and I'm going to be compuslively peeing on things again

    Ok, so let me preface this with, I'm really sorry if this offends someone (once again, assuming people read this )

    So, I'm a laid back person and I've been thinking a lot about being pregnant.

    I'd like to hope that my laid back mantra follows me through the hormones and such, but I had this hour-something-long mental conversation this afternoon....

    Women have been pregnant for thousands of years...long before pre-natal vitamins, long before sonograms, genetic testing, long before we knew that wine and alcohol was bad for babies in utero.

    But we, as a society, have survived. I'm not saying go boozing it up or smoking like a chimney, but I've read posts from women that freak out about being in the same room as an aluminum can or sushi.

    I'd like to think that I'm going to stay somewhat laid-back while pregnant, but I don't know....

    On one hand, if I am laid back and have a healthy baby, yay for us!

    If I'm laid back and something goes wrong, could I live with the guilt??

    There's nothing to say that if something were to go wrong, that it would even be the fault of the fact that I stood near sushi, microwaved popcorn or happened to be at a restraunt that didn't have a seperated smoking section. But if I was laid back and something went wrong, could they prove to me that it wasn't my fault?

    Would I believe them?

    This is quite the predictament we women are in now, isn't it. Somewhere, someone started this "start teaching them young--give them every headstart" mentality that makes us go CRAZY pushing our children, even before they are born, to be gifted, to be special.

    I mean, for the love of all that is holy, I doubt Einstein's mom put headphones on her belly and took her pre-natal vitamin every day, but he turned out a genius.

    What's wrong with us, as a culture, that we are so obsessive about the best, about being gifted...we brag about how our precious little angel started crawling at X month and that means they are going to be a doctor, because obviously they are the smartest thing to ever be squeezed out of a vagina.

    I'm not saying I want to raise children that are ok with being losers. I don't want to encourage them to fail. However, I want them to enjoy being kids, to live their life moment by moment, enjoying what's in front of them...not pushing them at 2nd grade to go to a camp that's going to prep them in the SAT's, just because everyone else in their grade is going.

    Technology has taught us some amazing things, but at what point are we sacrificing all of the simple joys in life for being the best.

    What's the point of being the best if you can't enjoy the best of life?

    So does that make me a bad mom if I forget to take my prenatal vitamins or I take the wrong one....what if I microwaved a cup of coffee and drank it, pregnant, without a second thought?

    If my child turns out to be middle of the road normal, but yet entirely happy....do I live with guilt that I enjoyed a mocha latte and that single drink could have kept little junior from being the next Einstiein?

    So this morning, I entered in my temp to ff and they moved my crosshairs.

    Not a lot, just a day, but it still frustrates me. I hate it when ff just wakes up and decides "oh wait, what I told you--all of that--that's wrong"

    I mean, I know it sounds stupid of me and whatnot, but I was reading all of my signs and had a pretty good idea of approaching O and so we took advantage of it and DTD the 2 days leading up to when I thought I was going to O, and the day of the severe temp dip.

    The next day I was tired! God rested on the seventh day, why couldn't I rest a little too?

    Well then, they move the damn CH's on me and now, according to them, I didn't DTD on O day, but did the 3 days prior. Which, is still giving me a score of "high" but its still frustrating!

    So I tuned it back to cd 16, although I've posted a poll on TTC for the 1st time to see what they think

    I just really despise FF some days Hopefully it doesn't matter soon and I won't even have to temp anymore!

    Ok. So, it's FREEZING in the apartment and I just noticed.

    Being as I've been here at the computer most of the day and not doing anything, I thought I'd test it out to see if it effected my temps at all (being in such a cold environment....the heater hasn't been on at all all day)

    98.3

    Interesting.

    Well...finally got my prediction from Cherri

    Thanks for letting m eknow.. Seeing BOY and MAY.. so thats either birht month, cocnieve month or the month you find out in. I think that youw oill find that I am leaning towards this more so being FIND out month, and more directed to the begiing of the month as they are also mentioned APRIL 27/28th and MAY 3.. so not sure if this would be around ovulation or even testing time??

    When it comes to your son, would tell you that he is someone who loves to be around people. Always seems to be laughing and having a good time and always talking to epople. I think that he is very socail and always willing to go out on the limb with people. Hes caring, and funny and just so down to earth. I would even consider him "charming".

    hes got a way with words and people, knows how to make you feel like your important, even if he has just met you. It hink that he is someone who just wants to make sure that everyone is having a good time.

    I see him as someone who is just shy of 6ft (give or take an inch) and that he has a beautiful smile with white perfect teeth. he has more of "Square" jaw, and has more of a lighter colored eyes, but could be refered to as "hazel". Hes got a smile about him, that just reminds you of someone kind and gentle. (almost reminds me of Brad Pitt in regards to looks, he is what they are showing me as a "description)

    I think that you will find that he is someone who is eager to impress, always has a way to lighten up a situation and defuse anything that nmight otherwise upset people.

    I see him good with his hands, but even better with his words. Seems to be able to accurately describe how he is feeling, and also put into words what your thinking as well.

    When it comes to career paths, I see him linked to 'TV" I think that its going to be a show thats similar to a "reality" show, where he is going to "host". I do believe that this starts out with work in commercials, but is "scouted" an taken over as host.

    When it comes to marriage I see him closer to 28, they will have one girl and one boy of their own.

    Ok, so I don't have a whole lot of time right now, but I want to announce that AF has come and gone.

    Although her timing could have been better, it was still nice to see her.

    Before you send me away and lock me up, bear with me. AF followed a pattern and made sense when she showed up (15dpo)...15dpo came at a reasonable time cd30 (31? 30? Somewhere around there). This, to me, tells me that my body is starting to get back to normal.

    Yay Vaginal Bleeding!

    Ok, so it sucked because what do you want when you can't have it? Well, just about anything, but in this case, it was sex. : sighs : Yes, I know you can do it anyways and I might have, had it not been so incredibly heavy at the time....but c'est la vie! I can have it now

    Ok, I've got to go, the wench has come home and wants me over at work at 11:30 so she can be to work by 12.

    Want to take bets on whether or not she even leaves on time?

    I'm guessing not.

    Ok, so first of all, I'm SO out of temping habit...it's amazing how not temping for like 4 days will do that to you.

    I forgot to pack my therm for the conference I went to, which was sad...but I couldn't have used those temps ANYWAYS because I had been drinking, wasn't sleeping enough and getting a HECK of a lot more exercise than normal....

    THEN--I got sick Nothing serious, low grade fever, coughing, sore-throat-thing...but fever and sleeping with a mouth open while taking various OTC's....yeah, it just wasn't working....

    This morning is the first temp I'm going to use, but with the I-net being down until this evening, I haven't had time to enter it yet....

    So the highlights, assuming anyone's interested?

    My husband, asleep, on the way there....


    Our new program director, Nikki, and I trying out new art projects in the Expo Hall


    My angry face---why? No clue


    My Sad face, at the end of the closing keynote session..realizing midstates was over for the year...


    I had a GREAT conference, learned a LOT, ran into many old friends and made some new ones....

    Matt had a great time at his first camp conference, he learnt a lot, volunteered as well and said he really enjoyed himself.

    Matt won a raffle prize consisting of a "movie night in": Microwave popcorn tub, movie theater boxed candy and season 4 of scrubs on DVD

    I won a doorprize of a rolling/backpack insulated cooler thing...tres useful at camp

    I also won a raffle prize that I've been trying to win for the last 3 years...its really kind of dorky, but a retired camp director created this really awesome (when you know the story) sculpture of a baseball cap and a pair of socks (if anyone even remotely cares enough to hear the story as to why he chose those two items, ask and I shall share) and it's a recycled raffle prize....every year it's raffled off, the camp takes it home for a year, donates it back and it's re-raffled the next year...they put the name of the camp on a plaque and it's attached to the sculpture...well, this year we are taking it home to Logan! Awesome...and yes, I realize how much of a dork this really makes me

    The big kicker.....ready for this?





    Matt finally talked me into getting the glasses that I should have been wearing for the last 6 years (but conviently couldn't find). I have a stigmatism (sp?) and so it's not THAT bad, but he finally convinced me I should get them. (with the tax refund--yay for being grown-ups). Candace and Matt had a blast picking out frames for me and since it was a 2 pair for $98 sale at EyeMart, they each got to pick one. Matt picked the silver frame (for being grown-up and serious) and Candace picked the (what appears to be) black (but is actually) plum pair for when I want to be funky.

    Yup. What a Life we lead.

    So what's your favorite? (I hate glasses, so I can't morally have a favorite However, I do hate both less than my old pair that looked like something even my grandma would consider old-lady, tacky and ugly rolled into one)

    It's going to take me a few days to get back into the swing of things, but in case anyone missed me and was wondering how the trip went, I wanted to be a bit of an attention hog and make one blanket post about my new glasses, my trip and about how I'm a bad temp-per as of lately)
