Today, AF showed up. and I gatta say, Im alright with that. I thought I was chalk full of pregnancy symptoms but just turned out that I was sick. Im hoping that It goes quick. I was confused at first, cuz my BBS were hurting and that NEVER happens unless I am preggo. Idk. Wonder what this cycle will hold for me. Check in tomorrow.

CD 2
Well, today I found out that two of the girls at my work are pregnant. Like freshly pregnant. I think im a little upset about this. Mainly cuz I am sick and AF is being mean this month. The thing that keeps going thru my head is "If life is what you make it, why can't I make life?" It sticks. I have not said this to anyone. Everyone at work doesn't get it. (I work at a restaurant where I work with a bunch of girls, all ages). They tell me to calm down and relax and it will happen, that I have only been trying 2 month, when previously, it took me 9 cycles to get my son. Im not sure I can go thru that again, but alas, I will because the outcome is worth it.
I really like this journal option, to express my feelings somewhere people understand and don't make me feel like a obsessed TTC'er. Ya know? Talk to me ladies. How are we today?

Ok today. I feel deflated. I am on CD4. AF is almost gone. I am sicker than snot and now my kids are getting sick. On another note. ANOTHER girl is pregnant at work. Yipee. I try and not talk about TTC'ing with them. I usually get the crazy look when I tell them what "cycle day" i am on. whatever. Its worth it in the long run, I think. I know that with my last two pregnancies, I had to use OPK's. With my last pregnancy, I had to use softcups to get that one. Why, oh why, do I have to use gimmicks to get a child. But, I digress, its worth it. I am starting to look forward to writing in here, where I am normal. Ladies, if you're reading this, thanks, and you're not alone....<3

Im cramping pretty hard tonight. I was supposed to O like 4 days ago, but I think I o'd 7-8 days ago. Im not sure whats going on, but I have been keeping my mind else-wear to keep myself sane. I hard have been talking about TTC cuz im sure no know but me cares. I am just trying to forget I am TTC. If this cycle doesn't work, I am going to get an OPK. I dunno. How are you ladies doing?
