Does this work?

Monday, September 20, 2010

Wow, I miss having a laptop. My phone works okay for typing, but it's much easier/faster to type on a full-size keyboard!

And I apologize to all of you because commenting from my phone is pretty time-involved, so (shrug), I haven't been doing much at all of that since Thursday. I still read your blogs though! Shout-out to Mission:Motherhood on the surprise BFP that we all wish would happen to us.

This 2ww has been the looooooooooongest one in a long time, and darned if I'm still just 11dpo. I mean, in a perfect world this 2ww will continue till, oh, May or so, but I'm skeptical. I have pretty much ZERO syptoms (other than the ones that of course are never actually symptoms), except continuing to be bloated. I am going to be pretty pissed if I start a new cycle and find out that I just got fat all of a sudden.

Operation wheatgrass is going really well, actually. When mixed with juice, I actually put a few ice cubes in there and sip it like a regular drink! (I tried it with water one more time and it was equally as bad as the first time.) I actually have found myself looking forward to my two glasses per day, if you can believe it. (Relative to getting in two servings of the tablets.) It must be doing something good if my body is asking for it!

I hope all the changes that we've been trying to make towards more natural/organic living will pay off with conception of a healthy baby. I know that tons of people eat big macs every day, with nary a vegetable, and have 8 kids, but I feel really good about making the healthy changes we have made in our diet and products we use in our home. Whenever we get a new laptop, I'm going to celebrate by doing a giveaway of one of my new favorites!

Hm...I didn't realize we were cycle buddies this time. I'm 11dpo as well with zero symptoms. *sigh* Here's to hoping we both get our BFPs soon!

Funny you say Big Macs. They are my weakness! I have been trying to be healthier and can proudly say I have not had any Big Macs in the last two months. I was doing ok, until you just brought it up :O)
I am very proud of you for making this change in your life. I wish I was that strong!

I am hoping that your 2ww continues for 9 months! I am just now starting mine and I am already anxious. Cheers!....with a glass of wheatgrass!

Glad things are going well going organic. We just did that too and I do feel better, although I cried last night when I had my veggie pizza with no cheese (I can't have dairy). But I guess more good days than bad. Gosh I wish we woudl both get surprise BFP!!! UGH!

Thanks for the shout out, A!

Glad all the changes are going well for you and hopeful that you'll see results (BFP) soon!

Many prayers that this one will be it! I'm so happy for you with all of your new changes and glad you're feeling great about those!

I hope the great wheatgrass experiment works and turns this into a 38 week two week wait. For now, though, it must feel good to believe you're doing something good for your body. I always feel better, psychologically and physically, when I do something good for me.

Hahaha. This is the reason I sometimes do wait with anticipation for AF to arrive - I need to believe that the sudden attack of 2-3 pounds doesn't say anything about my diet and exercise :).

Glad the wheatgrass is going better - I didn't know how long you could hold out if it stayed as nasty as you described :)
