As the title states, according to FF, I'm 3dpo. I figured it would tell me that. And that is what I am going to go with since I still had a positive opk on Monday. I'm fine with that. Not really, but there's nothing I can do to change it. Especially since there were extenuating circumstances with me being sick and all. So I move on.

There's some sort of switch that flips once my ovulation is detected (or entered by me) on my chart. I get more giddy. I get more hopeful. I start thinking about a possible due date, and telling BJ and telling the Little Guy and my parents. I don't know why I do this. It's pure torture on myself but I do it. You would think I would learn. You would think I wouldn't do this to myself month after month. But I do. It seems I can't help myself. And because I know so much about reproduction, I know pretty much everything that should be happening in my body if there is a fertilized embryo. Sometimes, too much knowledge can be a bad thing. Isn't there a saying that goes something like "ignorance is bliss"? When it comes to TTC I think there is a certain level of ignorance that can be bliss.

I'm doing something for myself today. I'm leaving in 10 minutes to get my hair cut. Normally, I would be driving about 20 miles tomorrow to see my regular girl that has been cutting and coloring (highlighting) my hair for about 6 years now. She quit the salon and they won't tell me where she went. I'm so picky about who cuts my hair. The highlighting is not such a big deal, but the cut is very important. I've gone to 2 people and been very unhappy with my hair the 2 times I was desperate and couldn't go to my girl. I am using a gift certificate today at a downtown salon for my hair cut. Then tomorrow I will probably go to a walk in place to get my highlights done. The downtown place charges a minimum of $150 for highlights and $85 for a haircut. To some that may seem like a bargain. To me, it's highway robbery. Especially since my girl can do both for under $100. I'm glad I have the gift card. I'm so overdue for a hair is too long. It gets in the way (and it was very in the way the other night during baby making, wink, wink) and usually ends up behind my ears. BJ hates that, and I actually do too. I'm looking forward to feeling "fresh" and getting a good shampoo and a little pampering.

We have baseball tryouts that will get rained out tomorrow. We are hoping that the rain date (Sunday) doesn't get rained out as well. Fingers crossed. And we have to hit the grocery store...blech! But other than that, we don't really have any plans this weekend. So I'm going to dance around (thanks for the suggestion) in my bucket of hope and promise and torture myself with baby thinking. :-) I hope you all have a great weekend.

ETA: just got back from getting my hair cut. It looks so much better! And it feels so much better! So glad I went. And since I got some of the blond highlights cut out, it doesn't look as obvious that I need to get my roots done. yay!

I reset my due date/announcement ideas every.single.month, too. You are definitely not alone. I don't know why I do it, because so far, it has not helped me in the least, but I think I'm just so excited to become a mom that I'll jump at any chance to try to make it more real.

That is awesome about your haircut!! I have been going to the same place for 2 years, and they have so much turnover that I've had 3 different stylists. My favorite one (the last one) is separating from her hubby and moving home. I'm thinking of asking this girl (lady) I know who cuts hair in her home if I could go to her! The kicker will be if she washes my hair first- I cannot stand it when they don't wash your hair first!!!

I'm 3DPO also! :)

I recently switched where I go for my cut/highlights. I had been going to the same person for so long and was never truly happy with it. I pay much more now, but I LOVE it! Good choice! :)

Hope the next two weeks go quickly for you! It never gets easier, does it? I'm glad you're treating yourself to girly things - I LOVE getting my haircut. It feels so good afterwards. Bummer about your fave going to a different salon - I've been going to the same guy for years and drive 20 miles to his salon as well :)

I'm glad the haircut was a success! One of these days that 2ww will end the way you've always imagined it.

Isn't it amazing how much better you can feel after a good haircut? I've not been able to detect a shift in mood around ovulation but I have heard that it's common. Enjoy a weekend with few plans!

So happy to hear you had your hair cut and it looks great! Good luck with the 2ww :)

Yay for a haircut! I need one badly too! Good luck during the 2ww, keep your mind busy.

I love a good haircut! Although, I refuse to spend more than $50 for one (and grumble about that price), a good haircut is worth every penny. When I moved to MD, it took me for-e-ver to find someone I liked. And I got a LOT of bad haircuts. Luckily, my hair grows fast :).
You should show us a picture of your new 'do!
