Waking temperature yesterday: 97.1
Waking temperature today:  96.4
I thought it was supposed to go up! 
Oh wait, I'm supposed to be relaxing.
*Deep breath**

Another reason I'm not particularly relaxed about all of this is from a series of a events that transpired yesterday....on Facebook, of all places.  Facebook is the devil, I've decided, but I can't seem to stay away from it.  I posted on my status that I am giving up alcohol for Lent.  I am doing this not only because I hope to become pregnant, but also because--um, hello---my pants are getting more snug by the day. 

Anywhoodle, I digress.  Upon posting that status, one friend commented, "Yeah, right....nice excuse." (Implying that I'm pregnant).  Not ten minutes after that, I get a private message from this friend's sister saying something like, "Ok, everyone bugged me, so now I'm going to bug you.  I think that no alcohol is the perfect excuse for a baby bump to start growing!"  These two sisters were like sisters to me growing up--our parents are best friends, but my parents didn't tell anyone (not even my aunt or grandparents) about my MC.  So I politely wrote one big long message explaining everything and I sent it to both of them.  I mean, yeah, they're like family, but it still doesn't make it any easier to have to keep telling people over and over and over.  I guess I wouldn't have had to tell them, but I felt like I should.  Ugh.  I just makes stuff raw all over again.  Not for as long of a time period, but it definitely takes me right back there every time I talk about it in detail like that.

I just keep looking forward to the day that I can give them GOOD news.


  1. Aw I'm sorry people jumped to that conclusion. Who knows...maybe you'll have to give up alcohol for a great reason soon - besides Lent and all. ;)

    Wait and see what tomorrows temp does - if it goes up I think you'll get your cross hairs.

  2. I'm sorry, Gidget. It is so hard when people make those (sweetly intended) joking remarks that rub the old wounds raw again. That's one of the reasons I operate on a pretty wide disclosure policy--people don't inadvertently hurt you when they know what you're going through.

    I hope you get those crosshairs tomorrow! Waiting to ovulate is the pits, but at least you'll have a sense of your cycle's schedule after this month.
