AF made an appearence yesterday, totally unexpected! No cramps or anything. Went to pee and BAM there she is full force!! That's ok though. Dh and I are busy making travel plans for next spring so I'm not too bummed about not getting a BFP yet. It will happen when it's meant to happen. Everything else has always happened when fate decides so I'm gonna keep doing what I did this month. Not much at all! I realised that I was about 2 weeks post AF (I always seem to get AF on pay day then 2 weeks later I O on next pay day! LOL), I saw the money in the bank and realised I must be O'ing! I didn't get any EWCM this cycle but I got 5 days worth of +OPK's. Next month I will use OPK's again and pre-seed but that's as far as I'm going. I was in a much better mood this month, working full time and I started doing some landscaping in our back yard. I don't want TTC to be my first thought every morning, I want to focus on what I'm doing today.

I think this next cycle will be #9 TTC, I can't think of 1 productive thing I've done in those 9 months because I was always counting down the days (plus it was -40c for most of that time so I had nothing else to do!) Now that summer is just around the corner I'm gonna make the most of it , and I'll start now with a nice cold beer while I dig my flowerbeds!

Cheers ladies :D

We're planning on going to England to visit my friends and family, then we're going on a cruise around Europe. My family will be coming on the cruise with us. We're also looking at a trip to Egypt. It's really cheap if you go there via England.

Lots of things to look forward to!!

You're right! You have plenty of stuff to look forward to :)

When was the last time you went "home"? We were hoping to go to the UK this summer since dh & I both have family there & I have a gf who moved back last summer but unfortunately things came up so our travel plans won't work out :( It's all good though & our new "deadline" is to go before our future baby turns 2 so we won't need to pay for the extra airfare.

The cruise sounds awesome! I have a gf leaving today for a Mediterranean cruise...I am SO jealous! I think it would be amazing & so beautiful. Oh well, I guess I'll need to travel vicariously through others for now :)
