Thanks Reba! So we heard from the realtor yesterday and they haven't heard anything on the appraisal yet. So frustrating!

I posted this on the board but I feel the need to get it out once more. It breaks my heart that my sister is pregnant again. I can't say that I am surprised but still. I will not go into detail but ****....I am emotionally tired. Tonight I am going to hang out with one of my friends from high school who is in town. Much needed laughing, beer and bowling. Although I am not very good at bowling at all...The ball tends to slip out of my fingers when i go to throw it and goes backwards instead of forwards...

This week is proving to test my patience quite a bit...On a TTC note - the light pink gave way to a red spotting off and on last night but without making any real signifigant presence. Today it is just a light brown, CP is medium/medium texture/ medium in opening, CM is sticky, watery, and every now and then some stretchyness to it. I set my O on FF to CD 18 so that would mean today that I am 4 DPO. Holy cow, didn't know I was already in the TWW....AH!! I had a hot flash today which is weird...I don't usually get those but it may have been from the prenatals.

I'm sorry that your sister is pregnant again. I can't imagine how frustrating that would be. I'm sad that some of my friends have three or more kids, and I don't even have one yet.

I get it. My younger sister had her second baby in February. I'm so happy for her and I love my niece and nephew; but it's still tough when I have none and I've been trying for almost two years.

Alright, so I love my DH. The other night when DH and I were cuddling before we went to sleep right after BD, he put his hand on my tummy and said "I can't wait to have babies with you".. The sweetest thing ever and it helped me get through the week and weekend.

Tryin to not focus on "possible" preggo symptoms but here they are:

Anywhere from 5- 7 DPO.
Spotting since O.
Friday: Hot flash and nausea..lovely!

Today there is this weird poking feeling by my left hip bone. Maybe this is an AF Sign but it is still something to put down just in case. Bloated feeling, increased sex drive and not nothing sounds good to eat even though I am starving!
I have to admit that I have been a bad POAS addict and tested yesterday, BFN obviously. I said I would wait but I could not resist! I will most definitely not be testing until we leave Friday a.m. and I will bring some tests with me to test pretty much every day after that. I am not counting on anything happening but one can only hope!

remisue, where in texas are you? Reba it is a vacation! I get to see my brothers and my dad so that will be a blast! I was hoping to get a BFP to tell all of my family because we are so rarely all together but ho well. There is still hope right?
I am excited for this trip!

On a TTC Note...

I have informed DH of this but it feels good to write it down. I have made the decision for next month to simply let go. What I mean by this is that I will not be obsessing over countdowntopregnancy.com with all of the HPT and OPK pictures, I will not be constantly googling symptoms and signs for a BFP, IB, etc., I will refrain from POAS constantly, i will simply let it be. I know that it will be hard for me to do this at first but I think it is what I need. Sunday at church, the pastor was talking about disappointments and how you are finally going to get to that point where you meet a crossroads. At the crossroads you either say I am giving up on myself and i need to let god do this because I can't anymore, or you choose to say you know what i have waited on god to do this and he is just not listening anymore.

I have met this crossroads. I am saying that I can't do this by myself anymore and that I am acknowledging that it will happen when the lord sees fit for it to. I need for the lord to take over because after my CP, I just can't take the disappointment of it when I try to hard to TTC. I have done everything right, timing, BD, OPKs, tried BBT and it stressed my out so bad that I was having anxiety! It is time for me to say that I am not that big and that I need god to help me relax. Maybe it's the fact that next month will be our 6th month TTC, but wither way I am ok with it.

Sorry for getting all churchy on you ladies but this is how I feel. I will not be leaving the boards because you ladies are my support system and I like being on here. I like being apart of something that helps all of us.

I find not temping or charting to be very freeing. Plus, I find it really complicated to do, and I don't want to admit I may just not be smart enough or organized enough to keep track of it.

Ashley, I totally get what you are saying. I was just telling my DH that next month I just want to try w/o temping or taking opk's. (We'll see how it works ) But it's emotionally taxing...

Please, please don't leave! Even if you're not doing all the "things" you're still part of the group.

HAVE FUN in Texas!!!

I have distant family somewhere in Texas. Austin, maybe.

It's okay to rest a cycle or two. You may or may not come back to the OPKs. I'm a big fan of whatever works.

Thank you for those awesome words, Ashley. I hope you are at peace with that decision (it sounds like you certainly are!).

I hope you'll stick around, too, to chat and answer questions.

Have a great weekend!
