Weekend and Cycle Updates

DH and I had a great long weekend! On Saturday, I took the opportunity to go get a massage with the gift certificate DH had given me for Christmas...it was wonderful! It was so relaxing and honestly just what I needed. I wish that I could rationalize spending the money on a massage more regularly, but unfortunately, I can't. After I came home from the massage, we went out for Italian Food.

Sunday (Valentine's Day) was a lot of fun! When I went to get into my car after church, I found that DH had left me a plate of my favorite sugar cookies. They are from Cutler's Bakery, and I can never get enough of them. They are so thick and rich, but so delicious! That evening, I made a nice dinner for us to eat at home. Everything turned out really well (I was a little nervous because it was the first time I had made some of the recipes). DH loved everything and it was all delicious! After dinner we exchanged gifts and watched "Couples Retreat". After the movie was over, we purposefully stayed up late playing Xbox...just because we could. Neither of us had to work on Monday, so we wanted to take advantage of being able to stay up late on a Sunday/sleep in on Monday. Maybe that is a little immature, but we had fun! :)

Yesterday, we went to lunch and to see "Dear John". I thought it was okay. I had already read the book and there were some big differences. I think I would be okay with the changes they made, except that the movie just seemed slow.

Now for some cycle news...
I am feeling really frustrated with my cycle. I know that I need to just relax and quit stressing myself out, but I can't help it. Today is CD 17 and I still haven't O'd. Last cycle, my monitor peaked on CD 12, so it just seems really inconsistent. The latest I have ever peaked on my monitor was CD 18, so hopefully I get those three bars tomorrow! I know that it is okay for there to be some variation of when O happens, but it frustrates me because I used to be so regular. Part of me worries that I won't even O this cycle. Maybe it doesn't matter that much because I go see the RE in a couple of weeks, assuming that I don't get a BFP. I just hate waiting!!! Sometimes I think it is harder to wait for O than it is to wait to POAS.


  1. Sounds like a great weekend! I made my DH sugar cookies - yummy! PS we use the same blog background - you have good taste!

  2. I'm glad you said that about "Dear John." I went with a friend, and we'd both read the book. She didn't think it was that different. I thought it was pretty different. Can't wait for "The Last Song" to come out. That book made me sob like a baby.

    Good luck with this cycle. Can't wait to hear about those three bars.
