Thank you so much ladies! I love all of you on here. This has been such a crazy weekend. I applied for another position within my bank and I think that I pissed off the people that I actually work with because of it. I don't think that it is that big of a deal but apparently it is to them. Regardless I am going to do what is best for me and my family.

I'm sorry about the situation with your co-workers. I agree that you should do what is best for you and your family. I'm always amazed at how many people take it personally when a co-worker changes jobs. When I left the courthouse, there were people who acted like I was abandoning them. It was ridiculous. People leave or change jobs all the time. LOL

Screw your coworkers. Really!

Hope you are doing ok -- there's got to be some silver lining in your house situation. If nothing else, renting means less hassle, less costly home improvements and more time just "being". <3

Elle and everyone else ~ Today is not a great day. Our house sold at auction for 165,524.22

However, you cannot put a price tag on your husband proposing to you on the living room floor, carrying you into the house for the first time, having a miscarriage in that house, all the tears shed in that house, all the joys that were brought to me in that house, and losing our home. There is plenty more I could share with you about it but it's kind of pointless at this time.

I'm so sorry Ashley. I have not lived that pain, but I know DH has and it haunts him to that day. I hope you aren't left with much debt to bear from it, their house was sold at auction when banks were allowed to sell at a loss and the fed gov't paid the rest of the mortgage so then you owed the fed gov't... it's been 5 years and he still hasn't seen a federal tax return... despite the debt only being $7800 (they were never informed of the debt amount either, or it'd have been paid).

If you need an ear, someone just to vent at, I'm always available.


Good luck with the application for the new position. I hope you get it.

you can't put a price on those things. Time will help to heal the wound. My husband lost his house a year into our relationship. It really bothered him. However I can't imagine what life would be like if we hadn't moved on from there. I'll sending comfort your way

So sorry Ashley. A house holds so many memories and feelings. But you have to look at it this way, maybe this is a new chapter for you both to bring bigger and better memories.

Big hugs, girl.

I am so so sorry Ashley I honestly wish I knew the words to make you feel better but I dont think they exist. Time really does help heal wounds though. I hope this new stage in your life will bring wonderful new memories for you and your husband.

Sending some positive thoughts your way. Hang in there.

You ladies are the best. Made me tear up at work just reading all of your amazing words. You are all right and DH wasn't even as sad as I was yesterday. Which I think is a good thing.

I really believe that that house had some bad juju. I could never get any plants in that house to grow, we have had some a little of a tough time getting pregnant and we fought constantly while living there. Now we don't argue all the time, we are actually happy and have fun, my plant that was dying there for no apparent reason is now thriving and growing all kinds of new leaves, and I am feeling a little better about TTC, DH is even willing to "try" a little harder

Off of all the heavy talk and on to other things like TTC....

The digital ClearBlue ovulation tests are nice. I don't like them for POAS addicts and short LH surgers that have to do several a day to catch their surge because 1. They are much more in price than WondFos, 2. You have to pull the test out after to see how much darker the line truly is to judge how close you are to actually catching your surge.

So it was a fun experiment while it lasted.

I seriously believe in this kind of stuff. That's awesome that things are improving already -- sometimes blessings and good news come in different forms. See how corny I just got on you there? Apologies

Thanks for the updates on those OPKs. That sounds dumb that you still have to analyze it. Doesn't spending more $ mean you dont' have to guess as much?! OPKs already stress me out, I don't want to feel like I'm wasting any more money on them.

Emily you made me laugh!!

Thank you so much everyone for all the kind words of encouragement and support. You have no idea how much they have helped me. <3

A little off topic hehehe......Have you ever just had that kind of BD with your DF, DH, OT, etc that was just like wow...if that doesn't get me pregnant I don't know what will lmao!!!!!

:caution: may contain intimate details.... I don't know about y'all but my DH is not a huge fan of going down on me. It's just not his thing. Me on him however, I'm all about it. Lately with trying to lose weight and the house stuff I have been feeling kind of inadequate and I am pretty sure that DH is trying to make up for it because Last night he did it! That makes it two times in less than 2 months!
Que me giggling like an idiot!

Then it hits me in my silly brain that hey, this is what it's like to not stress out on the fact that an OPK might not be quite positive yet or whether my CM is still fertile, etc. etc. This is what having fun and letting it be is! Granted if come January we are not pregnant yet then we will start looking into some other things to help us a little more and yes I will start charting again but let's hope that I don't have to!

I'm so sorry about your house. I can't imagine how hard that would be. I will be thinking of you.

Good job on the weight loss! I'm very proud of you! *HUGS*

The last two days DH and I said a prayer over my tummy asking god to bless us with a child. I give all the glory to god all the time because he deserves it. I know that it will happen in the time that god wants it to but I am only human and I cannot wait to be a mama. Joe and I were messing around with a watermelon the other day by putting it under my shirt and imagining what that was gonna be like because that bump got in the way of everything! Riley, my gorgeous furbaby did absolutely NOT like the fact that she couldn't jump up on mom because there was a "bump" there, hehehe. She started whining and dogs version of "talking" to me, it was hilarious!

I am not gonna lie I was super excited about the silly line on the WondFo yesterday. I spent all day obsessing over it. I know I shouldn't have but when we had our chemical pregnancy thats how it happened, I POAS (wondfo) at the time I wasn't expecting a line to show up and the line showed up and then boom, the bleeding started and it was gone. I guess I was just thinking hey maybe that's how I am going to know I am prego is by having NO symptoms at all. :/

Today is 1DPO and I am trying to relax and enjoy the rest of this cycle. DH is looking to go into the Army Reservesand I am so proud of him. I am nervous but proud. If he does pass everything then he will leave november-ish and we will start to TTC actively ASAP.
