So I have write up a list of accomplishments in the last year for my boss to use in my annual eval.

Gee boss, I haven't accomplished nearly as much as I did in years past, because I'm too busy TTC! But I can tell you all about OPK's, hormone levels, and new vocabulary words like Femara, Ovidrel, and the like.

Unfortunately I can't even say I've "accomplished" anything in the TTC realm either. After my 50 mg Clomid cycle, my progesterone is a whopping 0.8 and my chart looks the same as before.
(TSH was 1.8 & prolactin was 24, both within normal range.)

This is stressing me out because I do feel like my job performance is suffering! GRR. I feel like I put everything on hold while I'm waiting/trying/controlling/obsessing for a baby.

So there's my "Wednesday wahoo" on Tuesday. Feeling STUCK and needed to VENT!

You know I have the same issues. I think everything in my life has suffered during this TTC period. I can't even focus at work. I spend my evenings researching pregnancy tests and when I might be ovulating next. And yet I have moments of calmness where I'm just like I'm waiting on you Lord. And your timing is perfect and mine is not.
So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world. 1 Peter 1:6-7

TTC is all too time consuming.

Today I started the FF charting course.

GL writing out your PE. It can be hard having to do an evaluation on your own self.

Aww...thanks ladies. You're so great!

I really need to work on my eval and plan for a committee meeting tomorrow night, and I am just wiped out. Drove to San Antonio & back today for a meeting (6 hrs round trip). Why does sitting in a car, not expending energy, make us so tired?

Anywho...thanks for the support. If I put the same time & effort into writing my thesis that I did into TTC, I'd be done by now!
