On to next month. :)
We inherited a 10 month old kitty last week monday. His name is Vlad. He's cute, but I'm not much for the hair. He's been naughty the last day or so, which is to be expected since he's still a kitten, but its annoying. lol Ive been a pet owner all my life, but Scott doesn't think animals belong in the house. So it's a bit hard for him to adjust.
Anyways, in other news, the fitness has definitely been put on hold since my illness, as well as the menu planning. Also, we have been hitting the house hard as of late, so it takes up much of my "fitness" time as well. But, I've been balancing on ladders, and painting my little heart out! lol.
Speaking of the house, I'm thinking/hoping it will be done in Aug. I don't see why it wont be. We are about half done with texturing, and then priming and painting is pretty easy. Then we have to do the flooring, and get the cabinets/countertops/appliances and trim all installed. Not to mention the lighting. So we are definitely close! I cant wait! I can almost taste it...wait, that's drywall dust...yep, I can definitely taste it. :)
Hope you all are doing well! Sticky Baby Dust!!

Cycle Day 5
I remembered to temp this morning! Hurray!
No news on the TTC front as of right now. I did, however, have this really weird moment today at work. It was a pretty stressful day to start off with. One person called in sick, another was going to be late, two extra children showed up that weren't on the schedule so I had to magically pull an extra teacher out of my butt (not a pretty thought, thank you very much) to cover the class with the extra children. So, on top of all that, I couldn't start making breakfast for the kids. My boss came in and was busy with her emails and I couldn't update her on all of this. For some reason, this made me break down and cry. How silly! So of course in the back of my mind, I'm thinking well...your period was a day shorter than usual... NO no no! I refuse to think that I am pregnant. Yes, it could happen. BUT...chances are slim. My period usually is like this
Day 2-4 medium to light
Day 5 spot
this time it was
Day 2 medium
Day 3 light
Day 4 spot
So not much of a difference. But any TTC-ers know that we definitely make mountains out of molehills.
So that's all I have for now...I hope this post finds you all very well!
Here was last week: (7/8-7/14)
*meal planned in black, actual meal made is red
Chicken Stir Fry with jasmine rice (made monday 7/16 instead)
Hamburgers with sweet potato fries
Tuna salad sandwiches with chips
Grilled Cheese with Hummus and Veggies (grilled cheese and salads w/ garden veggies)
We ended up having chicken caesar salads sunday instead of chicken stir fry.
Having this plan was really very nice! I knew what I was doing when I got home from work. I have been using up my veggies and fruits that may have gone bad if I had waited too long. So it was nice to know I wasn't wasting food, and I was giving Scott and myself a healthy fresh meal! :) Plus I've been using more protein! Wahoo!

Today starts my weight loss journey. I downloaded a new app to help me track my meals and exercise. It's a decent app. Reminds me of self.com's trackers.
I actually went for a run. Well...let's be honest, I walked 5 min, ran 1, walked 5, ran 2, walked 2, ran 1, walked 3, ran 1. Totalling 20 mins. Not bad for me and my exercise induced asthma. It was hard (not too hard to make me give up after the first workout) it felt so great! I get great thinking done while running...it gives me the strangest clarity. I suppose it's because I'm focusing so hard on breathing that my mind can't think about the daily stress.
Anyways, its nice to focus (obsess) about something other than babies for once. Balance is the key I suppose.
Tomorrow we will be canning pickles and visiting our town's street festival. :)

CD27 / DPO 37 AF due between today and Friday (thanks to wonky cycles). --Hopefully not at all! My symptoms seemed to have lessened, other than moodiness. My breasts are a little tender, not as bad as they have been though. I do have some extra CM right now, I'm not sure what that means...and i get bouts of nausea here and there. plus tired of course! Time will tell i suppose! More later...

Still a BFN, :( I am a bit discouraged, but honestly, I'm suprise by how positive I'm staying. Knowing only 65% of women get a bfp before cd12.
While in the shower this morning, I noticed tons of little baby veins and they were bright red. I have never noticed them before. I asked Scott about them, since he keeps pretty close tabs on the girls (lol). He said he's never noticed them either, and he thought my nipples were darker. Idk, I keep going back and forth...this is my first 2ww, and it feels like 2 months have gone by!
I have been watching some more YouTube mommies, I love seeing nursery tours and baby shower hauls :)

CD26, DPO12 symptoms are the same as yesterday. Tender breasts, dizzy, exhausted, still cough/sick, slight nausea. New today is loss of appetite. I'm hungry, but once I start eating I get totally turned off to food.
Sleepy sleepy sleepy....
|I couldn't believe I caught one of the heart ones!|
|It was a nice show. Not too hot or buggy. We had a nice seat in the back of this giant hill at our town park.|
|Part of the grand finale.|

Baby Dust & Many Blessings!
Getting up was ok, considering. Took a shower got ready for work, still coughing and exhausted, but that usually goes away once I get going. No such luck. I couldn't make it through my shift at work. Too darn tired, and losing my voice on top of it.
So here I am, home sick, humidifier going, mucinex d in my system (pharmacist said it was ok for the possibly pregnant ladies) laying in bed, waiting for domino to deliver my gluten free pizza so I can eat and pass back out! Ugh!
Symptom wise, dizzy, tender breasts, mood swings, exhausted, nausea.
