Lex, I'm so sorry. That aweful AF!! I do think sometimes that she is a real person with little feeling and she gets off on stringing you along until just the right time to pop out and ruin everything! Hate her!! Hope she's easy on you and I hope you can still have a good Christmas.

Well I made it through the day, kinda mopey & somewhat witchy (my original term was censored) / on edge, but that's always been the case. Excedrin has been my best friend today.
Tonight I'm going to finally allow myself to fall apart & cry myself to sleep (I NEED to) and then I'll get on with the rest of the cycle and I think I can probably enjoy christmas. I'm going to try not to think too much about TTC this month. I probably would even decide not to temp at all if I wasn't so worried that there might be a medical issue in which case having the charts to show late O/inconsistant LP length to the doctor could be useful.
But beyond temping & BD when I feel like it (which usually coincides with O anyway)... I'm going to pay more attention to everything else that will be going on, namely the move on Jan 9th.

It's so helpful to me to just let it out sometimes! I hope this will be your lucky cycle and you'll be so distracted by everything it'll be a surprise

Hum TMI but taking my mooncup out I realized that I've only been spotting (sometimes I have a day of spotting before AF)
So looks like I had a longer LP (yay for B6!) than I thought.
Soooo back to CD 1

Tonight I watched Julie & Julia. I absolutely loved it ! Her day job reminded me so much of mine down to every single frustrating call! I love cooking, too. So the movie cheered me up. I wish it told us if she really did hate her or not, if there was any resolution for that final "conflict".

Thank you & merry christmas to everyone!

Well my day has been nice. I feel insane though. What kind of freak is irrational enough to feel jealous of Mary who gets pregnant without even trying AT ALL?
At least I realize it's irrational.
The cramps are killing me & the migrane. Several times I've felt like I was dying.
But other than that today was a great christmas eve.

I probably won't be able to log on for the next couple of days because I'm going to celebrate christmas with my ILs now

Hopefully I'll not be as hormonal and the cramps will subside a tad so I can enjoy things a bit more.

SO.... decided to change my username to something less seasonal and reflecting more how I feel about this whole thing. I already love my child so much that I feel I'm already a mommy, just waiting to actually meet my baby.

I'm sure many if not all of us feel that way about it.


I also had a "duh" moment when I got logged off because I pushed the wrong button. Our siggies & avatars are not visible to people without accounts. I might actually create a siggy with an actual picture then! And hope nobody I know is on these boards lol.

Tomorrow I take the train back home without DH (he will join me 3 days later) so I will get back to work. Lovely.
Sigh... christmas was so short and so completely ruined by AF. I was really in a bad place. She completely wipes me out both physically and emotionnally for about 2 days.
Now that I am beginning to enjoy things again, it's all over.

I figured out something huge about myself today, had one of those "ah ha" moments. Where I realized that my contradictions aren't really after taking an online Myers-Briggs test. I know I'd need to get a "pro" one but I feel like I don't need one. The description of the personality type & the motivations and just EVERYTHING is so me and I can't believe I hadn't read it before.
I am INFP - Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving (Introverted Feeling with Extraverted Intuition)

I – Introversion preferred to Extraversion: INFPs tend to be quiet and reserved. They generally prefer interacting with a few close friends rather than a wide circle of acquaintances, and they expend energy in social situations (whereas extraverts gain energy).[5]
N – iNtuition preferred to Sensing: INFPs tend to be more abstract than concrete. They focus their attention on the big picture rather than the details, and on future possibilities rather than immediate realities.[6]
F – Feeling preferred to Thinking: INFPs tend to value personal considerations above objective criteria. When making decisions, they often give more weight to social implications than to logic.[7]
P – Perception preferred to Judgment: INFPs tend to withhold judgment and delay important decisions, preferring to "keep their options open" should circumstances change.[8]


It confirmed my career change that I was hoping for and the things I had painstakingly realized about myself in recent years (my current job is in the least likely list for careers for my type - computing, the one I'm trying for is in the most likely list, although it's not a common career - translation)

It explains why I feel so open-minded about nearly everything and yet there are a few important topics I am BEYOND dogmatic about and will defend no matter what.


And it explains part of my recent stress. I've been striving to be all the opposite of who I really am for years, and failing.

I seriously am amazed at how accurate it seems. And I believe that I'm finally going somewhere/on the right path.

I'm so glad you're starting to feel better and like you're in a better place I had to take that test for a class once and it was also sooo right about me! Creepy right Lol. I really hope you get your BFP this cycle

I don't think I've ever dne one of those tests. I'll have to check it out. I agree, the Holiday was far too short. DH just keeps saying, "I can't believe it's all over already!" It's crazy. Glad you are feeling better, but Boo to going back to work.

I KNOW! What bugs me is the whole being in the train all day, walking home alone at midnight (ok ok it's ONLY 15 minutes on well-lit streets in a jewish neighborhood but STILL) trying to figure out how to get my guinea pig back with work & all, getting the 2d key to our place tomorrow morning before work, actually being on time for work, having food to eat & time to grocery shop, and actually work.
Thank goodness my favorite collegue will be there. And we can chat all day almost since there will be almost nobody else there butting in to our convos

I love you name change. I had to do a double take

Thanks! I'm still getting used to the new name myself but I couldn't possibly be an elf ALL YEAR.

Well I am feeling quite overwhelmed at the moment and feel like I won't get a moment's rest. (we are moving and there's so much stuff to do, plus all the laundry to catch up on, and DH who is expecting a romantic evening when he gets home from his family's place on Wednesday... and then the NY party to help plan, and the move and the packing and the planning and the mail to send, the mail to sort, the guinea pig to take care of, the groceries, work...)

I've decided we're doing it casual-like this cycle. I will temp only around ovulation and long enough to confirm it, and then a couple days before I expect AF because my LP is inconsistant. So less obsessing.
I'll decide to obsess over the move instead. We will try to BD but I will NOT fret if I O during his ski trip & we can't BD, I will NOT fret if it happens during the move & we don't have the time or energy. Honestly if I could be sure my body would go back to normal, I would just take the pill this cycle so I would be sure that it wouldn't last forever but only 28 days. Obviously though that would be a bad idea not to mention too late.

Obviously I'll be thrilled if this is our month, but I think the stress & the bad nutrition I will be getting would be bad for my ovulation.
