Waiting to "O" in December

Do you think the holiday shopping will help make the wait to O shorter or easier to deal with? Or will the holiday cause more stress while

Well, I thought I was going to back off a little on ttc but I just bought a new $60 ( gasp) box of cbfm sticks. Cp bleeding ended. So a few more days and bd. The good news is we timed it right last cycle so maybe we can again, only this time there had better be a good egg in there! Here's to praying for good eggs! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good egg!

Well I am officially here again. AF started with a spot and was medium by lunch time. So I ordered the CBEFM it comes Thursday supposedly... Walmart for 170.00 bucks includes 30 strips (which should get me through at least two months and long enough to know whether it is worth it to buy more test strips).

I am slightly bummed about AF but I am pretty forward looking, I am already planning to make my first batch of fudge EVER should be fun. I bought some fat free caramel macciatto creamer and plan to have a nice big cup of coffee tomorrow if not today and also bought some Monster -------love that stuff. I am currently basking in a diet coke and I plan to get a real good buzz on this Friday night wooo hooo! :)

Best wishes for a BFP by NYE! (I would say x-mas but assuming all plays out like last time - O on cd12 - would put me on 8 or 9 dpo) I prefer to have a slightly longer follicular phase though, 12 isn't bad but I think 13 or 14 best esp since that would make my LP ~14-16 days which is plenty.

Hope my ladies are having a wonderful week! Dust n sticky stuff to all of you!!!

Wow, cycle buddies. Well you know what they say misery loves company ;) Glad you are enjoying your coffee! Also, I am very glad that DH is down for more TTC :) I wish AF hadn't visited you but it sounds like you are taking it the best you can.

I ran today. I haven't run since the week before Thanksgiving, not really for baby reasons just being lazy. I need to get a handle on this weight gain. So far it seems TTC makes me gain wait. I gained 15 lbs the last time I tried TTC. I guess because I met a lady with infertility problems and she said her RE was telling her not to work out or run. I think that makes me a little hesitent although I think, like they say, I can continue doing anything my body is already used to. So I just have to get past this weird mindset. Of course, this time I think what is contributing to gain is also the fact that I recently took up baking. I REALLY LOVE IT, but man now I have a sweet tooth and the chocolate chips call my name regularly. The fudge is for hubby though he said the other day he missed his uncle Kenny because he used to make all this fudge and candy at X-mas. Being hubby's mom died in February, I am trying to institute lots of his family x-mas traditions. Heck, even put up a tree this year, which I haven't done in like 5 years probably. LOL

Crud, I heard you could run if it wasn't more than you were used to, and ramped down but not about the sweating thing. I pretty much sweat after 6-10 minutes of running. I get hot pretty easy. Grrr. I guess I could run for 5 walk for 5 see how that goes, if I continue to sweat I could drop down to all walking and elliptical. Using this logic it sounds like I shouldn't even do a sweaty workout during pre-O. Thanks for the info.
