Its only our 3rd month trying and I'm already pooped! I never ever thought I'd feel like BDing was a chore but I'm close. It just kinda sucks.

I'm fairly certain I O'd on CD11 or 12 last month and seems to be the same this month. Hopefully our timing was right. The OPKs were really no big help. 

One of my good friends is about 19 weeks along. My BFF from high school just got a BFP after about a year of tring. Another good friend is due any day now. I'm surrounded by babies and its making the fever go crazy! Last night our friends were over with their 3 girls. The youngest is 5 months and just a doll. I'm excited to think my future shorties will have lots of little friends to grow up with. Now I just need to get the impatience in check. Ugg.

We are huge snowboarders so the big question this year is if we should get season passes. We have the last 4 seasons together so this year shouldn't be any different right? I've been holding off in high hopes that I'd be expecting by now. Last year was such a crappy snow year that I'm having a hard time getting excited about this year. 

So now I'm off for the 2WW... again.

GL with your 2 WW, it always feels like it lasts way longer than 2 weeks! I'm sorry you're getting frustrated. I got like that around 3-5 months of trying. I think we all go into it thinking it will happen right away and for some women it does. It's frustrating waiting and BD'ing does become work and not as enjoyable. I found an article that someone had posted a while ago about sex on demand ruining your life. It's interesting to read. I really do think that TTC and planning to get pg can become work.


I know what you mean about not wanting to make plans to do things like snowboarding because you never know if you'll be pg or not. I missed out on some things last summer, but this summer I just made plans anyway...some of which I had to cancel. I don't think I'd have much fun at an amusement park or water park pg since I can't go on half the rides. Hang in there and I would keep planning things just in case, don't put your life on hold for maybe's. I would check though to see if you can get a refund if you find out you're pg, or if that is not an option. I would keep doing what you enjoy while you can but have a back up plan just in case you're pg. I'll keep sending lots of positive vibes your way. I always keep all the girls here in my thoughts and prayers that they can get a quick BFP. It's hard to know there are girls here trying and struggling when it doesn't happen right away. I'll always be sending PT&P your way!
