I did it! (13 dpo, 1 day to go)

I resisted peeing on a stick this morning! I just had to distract myself until after I peed, and then it was too late. Mostly because I had to leave for work and wanted to be with my husband when I do it, and I didn't want to wake him. I'm so thoughtful. (OK, maybe I don't want to be with him while I'm peeing, but right afterwards ... well, you know what I mean ... ).

Now I'm having a ridiculously shitty morning at work, and wishing I was still at home in bed. Meanwhile, everyone else I know has the day off and Sacramento seems to be deserted. Kind of ironic that I'm a government worker and I am at work while everyone else is on vacation. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around?

I actually feel nauseated this morning, but I think it's because of stress at work and nothing (in)fertility related. I wish I could press the fast-forward button, at least so it was 4:30 and I could get out of this office, go home, relax, and spend the evening with the best guy in the world who is at home waiting for me.

I hope you all have a fun, happy, relaxing holiday weekend. Cheers.

(P.S. I was a little surprised by the comments to my last post about how few of you are skiers - I had no idea the percentage of skiers was so small. The interesting things you learn from blogging, huh?)

(P.P.S. I learned to do ski mountaineering because my husband grew up doing it in the Alps. It's much more common in Europe than it is here, which is why even most regular downhill skiers have no idea what it is. It's also called "backcountry skiing" and "randonee", and probably has other names, too.)


  1. You're almost there. Hope your work day isn't too long and draining...

  2. you finally get the best news ever!

  3. Ugh, I'm with you on having to work today. And it doesn't make sense for me either since I work for a university and most people think I have the whole summer off! But I had a 3 hour meeting.

  4. congratulations on your will power! i hope this one works for you. can't wait to hear the results tomorrow.

  5. When I checked my blogroll and saw that you had posted, my first thought was that you had caved and tested... I'm so proud of you (and more than a little envious)! I'm crossing my fingers for tomorrow... and sending big time prayers.

  6. The whole ghost town thing here in Fresno is similar. What's funny is they staffed surgery as if it was a holiday and closed part of our OR's but we still had a huge surgery load for today plus traumas. It's been crazy busy at work. Good luck tomorrow.

  7. I hope you had a nice relaxing eveing and it was A LOT better then your work day was.
    Sending you TONS of good JUJU for your morning pee ;o)

  8. I really wanna pee on a stick, too, but I still have a week to go! I've used the same trick to keep myself from doing it. :)
    I'm in Texas. We don't even know what snow is, much less skiing. The entire city shuts down if it so much as sleets.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
