I was so slammed at work today that I didn't get the chance to post. Although, as far as the cycle goes, I don't have much to report. That makes me a little (a LOT) sad. I know it's early yet, so I'm not giving up the hope. I'm just settling into that place where I'm trying to convince myself that it didn't work. You all know the place I'm talking about. The closer it gets to test day, the more fear and dread and negative thoughts start to set in. I'm trying to keep them at bay, really I am. It's just really hard. I haven't had one food aversion, not one second of nausea, not much of anything. I've had some cramps and that's a good sign, I guess. I haven't had a period in 79 days so I'm sure with all the estrogen and progesterone I'm pumping into my body my lining is about to burst at the seams. That would account for the cramping I'm experiencing. The cramps feel pretty much like period cramps. My boobs are still sore but they haven't gotten any worse. If anything, they have mellowed out a little. I don't take that as a good sign. I'm tired but it seems like no more than usual. Ok, maybe a tad more than usual but again...the progesterone. *sigh*
We have a really big meeting coming up on Thursday that I will spend most of tomorrow and Wednesday prepping for. I was going to test Wednesday morning but have since thought better of it. If it's negative I won't be able to focus on the tasks at hand. I can't test Thursday morning, the morning of the meeting for the same reason. Friday is my birthday and I'm so scared of seeing a stark white window that I might actually be able to wait until Saturday morning. There will be no question of accuracy at that point. I'm sort of going crazy wanting to know, though. I have to have my head in the game for this meeting prep, though. I was given more of the prepping responsibilities so I'm going to be scrutinized all the more. Although I feel a bit distracted NOT knowing. I'm a mess.
My weekend was great. The Little Guy had his baseball game on Saturday. They were losing and decided to put him in to pitch. It was his first time this year and it's been almost a year since he last pitched. He struck out one kid with beautiful pitches. He tagged a runner out at home! And then he struck out one of the other teams best hitters! He got all 3 outs of the last inning himself! Proud is not even the word. And all of this while dealing with a cold. Poor kid.
Sunday was spent outside lounging in a lawn chair while BJ washed and cleaned the inside of my truck. He's so good to me. And now my truck is clean and smells good and I have the beginnings of a nice tan. We went to lunch at 5 Guys and I was able to have a caffeine free fountain cola. Oh how I have missed my fountain colas. I LOVE fountain colas but no one has caffeine free...except the 5 Guys by our house. Yummy!
I'll keep you all in the loop if I break down and decide to test early. Thank you so much for your support and your well wishes. It really means a lot to me that you are out there. I know I say it a lot, but it's really true.
