Today is 15 DPO and I am a raging bitch! I can’t seem to help myself. Last night my husband made dinner and then surprised me with ice cream from our favorite place. A few hours later while I was packing for our trip the phone rang. I yelled downstairs for him to answer the phone. One ring, two rings. He still hasn’t answered. So I yell louder (no phone upstairs and I was packing while he was watching TV). He then answers that it is probably too late and to let the machine get it. That set me off into crazy land. I couldn’t stop yelling. I was waiting for the kennel to call to tell me what time we could drop off the dogs and I was sure it was them. Even though I knew I was wrong, I couldn’t stop myself. So unless pregnancy symptoms are identical to bitchy pms symptoms, I don’t think I am - but I haven't given up hope. I just pray I can be nicer to my husband on our 9 hour trip to Florida! :)

Today is CD 13. My temperature went down again today. I don’t feel like I am about to start and it is still a few days early, so who knows.

We found out some wonderful news this weekend. Our friends just found out that their fifth round of IVF worked! She finally got her positive! I am so very happy for them. Before my first appointment with the RE we met for dinner and she talked with me for hours about what to expect and what they had experienced. I was amazed at her positive attitude. They weren’t sure if they were going to try anymore – emotionally and financially exhausted. The only drawback to quitting IVF is her husband was against adoption. Yay for them!

That is about all my news. I spent pretty much the entire weekend working. I will be so glad when this crap is over and I am in Florida with my family for the holidays!

10 DPO

I am a bad, bad blogger. I am giving myself an F for the month of December. I have been working late almost every night (year-end sucks in most finance departments). When I get home, the last thing I feel like doing is getting back on a computer. But I promise to do better.

Today is 10 DPO. I don’t think our chances are very good this month. I was out of town on business for several days – coming home on ovulation day. I know we are supposed to do it the next night too, but B made me so mad that night I didn’t even want to look at him. He was just joking around but he didn’t pick up on the fact that he was hurting my feelings until way too late. It really wasn’t a big deal, just very bad timing.

I talked to my RE at the beginning of this cycle and we decided that if this one didn’t work we will try an IUI in January. I am glad he understands our situation – with B deploying in April – and allows me to be as aggressive with our approach as I want.

So now we just wait and see. There is so much to keep me busy with work and the holidays that I am not paying too much attention to my 2ww. Hopefully this continues!
