Hey ladies!

I have been recovering and being inundated with school. We have decided that I will try to get a full-time job for the summer/fall, so I've been working on that. I have a list of 8 places to send resumes to this week. We'll see how that goes.

I also started an infertility blog. I just needed a place to put everything together. I'll still be around here a lot, I promise - this is just another outlet for me. It's not connected to anything else in my life either, which is nice. I even started a pinterest account for it, which has been great - I have been going to town on baby, pregnancy, kiddy stuff and no one will see. Which is great. It's been helpful.

Hopefully, I will be around more, but I am reading and following everyone!

Jessica, I love the way you just keep moving. You are so strong! I did notice the blog link pop up in your siggy.

What kind of jobs are you looking at?

Thanks! It's been good so far - and I feel like I won't run out of things to say anytime soon, which is nice (although I'd love to turn it into a pregnancy blog soon )

And the pinterest thing is such a nice added bonus. I love finding cool stuff on there, but I was really self conscious and whatever. Now it's like "pin, pin, pin, pin" (hehe)

I'm looking for jobs that are management-level in the Jewish community. Luckily, there are a lot here in NYC.

Your blog is really well written! I'll definately be keeping one eye on it. I think you have such a good attitude towards ttc, I just hope that your RE appointment goes well.

Oh and I also love pinterest! Did you know you can have 'secret' boards? I have one for baby stuff called 'wishin and hopin'. Cos its secret, nobody else can see it and I dont have to worry about anyone else seeing it!

Thank you! I'm glad everyone likes it so much - I'm going to have to keep writing, I guess! It's sometimes so hard to keep up a good attitude, but really, otherwise it just gets to be too much!

Thank you! I have my list - but I'm not going to get to work on it until tomorrow night at the earliest - silly school! But hopefully it'll work out! Can't wait to hear what you think - there are only 3 posts so far, so don't worry that it'll be a huge time commitment

What are you getting your degree in? Do you hope to work with synagogues or other businesses?

jessica, you are so strong and you have a great heart! I wish nothing but happiness and great things for you. I am glad that you have another outlet. Don't forget about us! It gets hard sometimes wanting something so badly then not getting it. Good luck sweetie! Stay strong.

Thanks ladies.

I think I ovulated yesterday but not clear. I woke up with my mouth open (OF COURSE) so I have no idea. BUT CM dried up, so if I didn't, I'm waiting AGAIN to ovulate. I really, really, really don't want a long cycle. It would put the end of the 2WW right around my birthday, and unless it's a BFP (which I'm not expecting) who wants that? So...yeah.

Otherwise, super busy with school, but trying to stay focused so I'm not too stressed. I also have a friend who is a yoga instructor, so I got her to put together a short routine for me. Hoping that will help with stress as well.

I really like it so far. Once finals are over, she said she'll totally do some more work with me, which is awesome.

But UGH, I'm fairly sure I didn't actually ovulate, even though I geared up to it. It's SO FRUSTRATING. I'm hoping I'm wrong, but...ugh.

Like, my life is just going to continue to be stressful for the next few weeks, so I'd really love for this to not be screwy - but I'm sure it's because of the stress. BOO.

I might have spoken too soon...? CM today, and a huge craving for chocolate?

Who knows. But maybe it was just a "rain delay" or something
