12DPO Update

I am really enjoying this 2WW. The fact that I have to wait sucks, but everything else in my life is perfect.

This is where we spend most of our time.
Like I mentioned in my last post,  my husband and I joined our local YMCA. I was finding myself getting EXTREMELY bored and annoyed the last few months because the hub and I watched television ALL night EVERY night. Maybe the boredom comes because I only work from 10-2, so I have so much time in the day to be bored. Either way, we needed a change. We joined on Wednesday and have gone there Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and tonight. It has been amazing. I am so glad that we did this.

Order it. Really. :)
I am also making more time to add reading back into my life. I pre-ordered Kelly Oxford's book Everything is Perfect When You're A Liar in January and finally got it late last week. I am about halfway thru it and running across many LOL moments. She sure has a way with words and a very unique life. It is an easy read and I am thoroughly enjoying it. She is a Canadian writer and Twitter sensation. Check her out @kellyoxford.

I think that focusing more on myself has somewhat relieved the stress of infertility. I have decided that IF (come Friday's results) I am not pregnant, then I am going to go to my scheduled "next step" appointment on Monday, but still plan on taking a few months off. It would be good for me to focus on getting healthier before I have to house a baby and gain a ton of weight. :)

As for the pregnancy symptoms that I was feeling, they were VERY strong last week. My nipples were VERY tender on Tuesday (which is WAY sooner than I have that happen before my period). I took an AHPT Saturday and this morning and got a BFN, but it is still early. I will take one more on Wednesday and then I have the blood pregnancy test on Friday. Pregnancy symptoms or not, I am trying not to get my hopes up. I think that since I am loving the gym and looking forward to getting fit, I would not mind as much if I got a "Not Pregnant" this time. However, my heart and checkbook might disagree with me.

I so hope you get that BFP, that would be fantastic!! But if not finding something else to focus on is a huge help plus you feel better in general after exercising :)

Praying for your BFP. I'm struggling with to test or not to test.....In the next few days of course. Now is too soon.

Thanks for your prayers, but it came out a BFN. :(

It was a BFN. :( Thanks for the cheer though! :) I am still enjoying the book. I hope you do too. :)

Since I got the BFN, I can concentrate on losing weight during my (at least) 1 month break! :/

I'm so hoping that this cycle is successful for you! And I hope that the home stretch of this two week week is as enjoyable as the first part!
