On to Cycle #3

Well AF showed up.. Early to boot! I wasn’t predicted to start until yesterday, but she showed up on Thursday. Ah, well. I’m kind of glad she showed early; that way I didn’t have to be stressed at Six Flags worrying about whether or not I could ride coasters. That, and she showed up on CD 29 and that’s more normal for me than her predicted arrival on CD 32.

Speaking of Six Flags, we were there the day the kid got decapitated by the Batman ride. We weren’t anywhere near that part of the park when it happened though. We had just ridden Superman, and were walking toward the Gotham City part of the park, when we saw about 4 security guards standing at the top of the hill and not letting anyone in to that part of the park. I knew then something had to have been very wrong; that someone was either very hurt, or had gotten killed. I figured that there had been a nasty fight of some sorts. We heard the park staff paging a police chief that happened to be in the park at the time. It was only a little while later that our friend Ryan texted us to make sure we were OK, as the news had just said there was an “incident” on the Batman ride. We asked him to see if he could find out what had happened from searching online, and that’s when we heard someone had been killed. It was pretty crazy.

Anyway, we had a pretty good time at Six Flags. We didn’t get to ride very many things; we got there later than I wanted, it rained, and it was crowded.

In the matter of TTC, we’re on to cycle #3. I should be ovulating some time next week. I’m going to start our frequent BDing at some point this week just in case I ovulate way earlier than I’m expecting. I don’t think I’ll get any complaints from DH. 😉

I’m honestly not even sure I ovulated last cycle. I never saw any EWCM, and I didn’t get the O pains I normally do.

Ah, well. Here’s to an April 2009 baby!

Finally! An Update!

It’s been a very long while since I updated this blog. What’s been going on..

Let’s see. I started my weight loss endeavor in February. It’s now June, and I’ve lost 20 pounds. I started out at 170 lbs, and I’m now at 150. I’m pretty proud of that. My goal was to be 140 by June 30th, which I don’t think will happen… But what is most important is that I feel great. I go to the gym frequently, I’ve been eating better (well. Trying to. I have been slacking BIG TIME the past month and a half or so with the food)…. And with that, in May, Josh and I decided that it was time to start trying again.

Our first cycle was a bust; We got one BD session in, and I got a sinus infection/strep throat combination that lasted an entire week. I was miserable; I didn’t go in to work at all that whole week.

We’re on cycle two now. I don’t have any earthly idea when I ovulated, but AF is due a week from tomorrow, so I suppose I’m in the 1WW. This 1WW is decidedly more mellow than the cycle where we got our BFP. I’m not analyzing every little thing my body does, I’m trying to be more skeptical so I don’t get let down if AF shows.

I’m going to try and test Saturday, June 28th because my company is having an outing at Six Flags. If I get a BFP, I won’t ride anything… I don’t know. I don’t know if I’ll ride anything even if I get a BFN.. I’m really torn about the whole thing. I’d hate to ride the coasters, find out I’m pregnant, and then have a miscarriage. I’ve talked to a lot of people who say that early in pregnancy it wouldn’t hurt the baby to ride roller coasters, but I’m still kind of wary of it.

Anyway, that’s what’s been going on. There have been other things here and there, but nothing huge or major. I’m biding my time online until 12:00… Coldplay is playing in Atlanta in November, and I’m buying tickets today! I’m so excited, my friend Michelle and I are going to be going together.

I’ll update this more often, I promise!
