This week is SO SLOW

10 dpo, 4 days to go.

I have nothing exciting to write about, I'm sorry.

Life is fun right now, but work is boring, and work is where I spend most of my time. It's really tough to get through each day, sitting at my desk in this cubicle surrounded by paper, the blinking message light on my phone, constant inane emails from the same people over and over who don't understand what I'm trying to tel them.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival last night was pretty good, it always helps to put things in perspective, watching films about nature and the mountains and the beauty of the outdoors. And it was nice to see a few friends, even if I was stressed out that we were late (I have to get over that).

There are so many blogs I'm reading in which the writers expect to know within the next week if their current cycle is successful. I'm happy to count myself as one of them, even though without the IUI I don't have much faith in a BFP.

I'm already picturing getting up to POAS and being able to crawl back into bed and tell my husband that it worked. It's a really, really nice fantasy that makes me really happy.

I'm trying to balance it out by picturing what I'll do if it's negative, too. But that really depresses me. I want to maintain a zen state of mind, but it's pretty hard to do.

I think I might be having some prometrium side effects - I feel slightly crampy, like I'm pre-AF, and have been feeling it for the last couple days. I also seem to be experiencing some skin issues (ugh, zits). I have no idea if either is related to the meds, though. I feel like so far I've gotten off pretty light as far as the progesterone goes.

Sunday is 14 dpo. I'm tempted to POAS on Saturday - since my last HCG shot was so much less than it was supposed to be (0.2 cc's instead of 0.5), I'm thinking that it shouldn't cause a false positive. But my goal is to hold out until Sunday. I'm going to really try.

4 days to go.


  1. Hanging on with you...and also noticed the slight skin issues today. Sigh. Another lovely side effect of the progesterone, I'm sure.

  2. G;ad you had a good time last night. Sorry work is such a pain. Have a GREAT day! Hows the weather over there? It was beautiful here yesterday, but today it's gloomy...yuck!

  3. i hope these 4 days fly by for you. i will be thinking of you and sending good ju ju your way for a happy ending to this cycle :)

  4. Hang in there! It's so tough when you need work as a distraction and it's not cooperating.

    Left a little something for you on my blog....

  5. Just stumbled across your blog :) I hope you get to crawl back into bed with good news!

  6. Zen is a good thing - try not to test early, it never leaves in a good place - so much anxiety.

    Visualizing is good. I love your blog name! thanks for the support and best of luck!
