Break time

I am really loving my break from ttc and IF. I didn't expect to feel this way, and in fact I was quite depressed right at the beginning, but omg, it's great.

Just knowing that I don't have to deal with IVF or anything else IF related for the next 3 months is freaking awesome. I'm not worrying about drinking alcohol, I'm having lots of fun exercising and doing sports, and I feel like my old self again.

I feel happy, and happy to be alive, for the first time in a while.

I'm excited about my trip to Alaska. So far we've planned an overnight trip, hiking along a ridge between two fjords, camping near the water, and the kayaking back (with a guide). We'll probably do another day kayaking elsewhere (near a glacier?!), maybe a day of rock climbing and/or hiking, and then 3-4 days in Denali National Park, sightseeing, hiking, relaxing, rafting ... no definite plans yet. I will definitely post some pictures somewhere when I get back!

Until then, I'm totally focused on my knee as far as my health and medical issues go. It's been feeling really "loose" lately, which makes me even happier that I've decided to do the surgery.

I feel like I'm just repeating myself, since I don't have much to tell about ttc, so posting will be slowing down here. I'll still be following along, though - all the BFPs out there are making me feel like it's GOT to happen for me sometime soon.



  1. I'm glad you're enjoying your break, and your trip to Alaska sounds very cool!

    It's good that reading about others' BFPs makes you feel like it's gotta happen for you soon. While I am often happy when I see someone else is no longer in IF limbo/hell, I no longer feel any optimism when I see that someone else has succeeded.

  2. I'm so glad you're enjoying yourself! Have a blast on your vacatio and I can't wait to see all the pictures of you have a GREAT!

  3. How can I get me some of that crazy peace? My ttc break is driving me kinda nuts!

    Glad that you are doing so good! :)

  4. I'm jealous of your Alaskan trip. That sounds like so much fun.

  5. Your trip sounds absolutely amazing! I'm so glad you have time to focus on YOU! :) Keep checkin' in every now and then!

  6. YES! I totally feel you. i feel like my old self again too. Am loving running and feeling good about myself again. Enjoy!!!
