Well AF is showing today or tomorrow. The spotting already began and the cramps are here so it is only a matter of time now. I knew this was most likely not our cycle but I still feel a little down about it. . . and I really want some chocolate.

In life news this furlough thing... with no end in sight we aren't really sure what it will mean. If this goes on too long I will need to figure out another means to make some money. . .

Alright pity party over I am just having a hard time being positive today.

I'm so sorry about AF coming. The furlough stuff is crazy. I don't really understand what is going on, but it kind of seems to me like they want people to keep working but they don't want to pay them??

To be honest I dont understand it at all either and I am constantly getting it explained to me I watch CNN and read articles online and I have no idea how this works. Starting Tuesday if we go on full furlough we aren't even legally allowed to work. Like cant even pick up a phone to cancel appointments or get on our email which just seems silly to me. . . Some people are currently working and not getting paid but that is only with special exemptions.

In TTC news - AF is finally on the way out and I am so grateful. It was a really rough one but I guess that makes sense so soon after a loss. I am so hoping I O at a reasonable time this cycle. Please please pleas CD18 one more time!!! Not 45 or 33 or 22. . . if I O that late again my doc is going to start running some tests so at least there is that.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

*hugs* I hope you O early too!!!!

I'm sorry about the mess at work. The gov't is obviously a freaking joke right now. Do you lose your insurance if you're furloughed?

Thanks ladies

Ashley - thank goodness we dont lose insurance since we are on DHs insurance. If he gets furloughed too - which they are saying wont happen we just have to pay the insurance portion out of pocket since he wont be getting a paycheck (which with out income could be tough. . . ) But I dont think he will get furloughed. I will be officially furloughed starting tomorrow.

In TTC news: Going to start my OPKs today Hoping to see at least a little bit of a second line. . .

A very light second line but it was there!!! That is pretty good for me on CD13. . . also had some EWCM yesterday but that has randomly happened before but I am still hoping!!! An O on our anniversary would be fun (and CD18 which is great for me) so I am hoping for that

Yup we are finally back to work!! I am so much less anxious about everything now

TTC news: Soooo it looks like I Od yesterday from my chart but I am pretty sure that is false hope. I woke up sooooo hot this morning because it was about 10 degrees warmer in our room. We slept with the windows open and it was supposed to be 60 out and it was more like 70 so I was quite warm. We will see what tomorrows temp brings but I am pretty sure I didnt O yesterday (but it would be AWESOME if I did) Still hopeful that if not yesterday then very soon!!! OPKs have gotten way darker but not actually positive yet.

Non ttc news: We had a really great weekend - today is our actual anniversary but we celebrated it yesterday. We planted our gardens and just hung out and relaxed at the house and then went out to a delicious dinner. It was a beautiful and day out and we had a great time.

I am having a very annoyed feeling day.

First - I am finally having EWCM ( the most I have had in over a year by far) and I am having some O pains but my OPKs are getting lighter instead of darker What is going on?!?!? I just want to O PLEASE!!!

Second - I have no idea what is going on with our kitty - he jumped on my lap for snuggles on my lunch break followed by a completely random attack where he tried to maul my face and just got super vicious. So any advice on what to do about that I would love as well.

Third - Baby showers galore coming up for my good friends who are due when I would have been and I am being asked to help (which of course I want to but ya know. . . ) And I am pretty sure my coworker is pregnant (cue saltines and sprite. . . )

Okay ladies thanks for letting me vent needed to get all that out there.

Thanks Ashley

I am in a much better mood now at least but still no O. . . I mean I guess my temp jumped a little today but my OPKs just keep getting lighter and lighter so I am assuming that wasnt O. And now I am getting so late in my cycle I feel like we should maybe consider TTA because I worry my late ovulations could be contributing to my losses. I feel a little lost with it all right now.

This weekend we are throwing a party so at least I have that to distract me for the time being. Seriously body O already!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh Elle I am so sorry. TTA can certainley be stressful as well but I hope it works for you if that's the route you decide to go! If it makes you feel better I am supposedly 18DPO/CD37 with hardly any sign of AF and I am frustrated! GGRR!

Yay for your party Any particular type of party?
