Growing Impatiens

AF has yet to show up and I'm seriously getting really, really impatient! The BCPs must have messed with my cycle. It's already CD32 and my cycle is rarely that long. I'm not really worried that AF won't show up, she's far too stubborn not to make it a party in the end. However, I am afraid it will throw off our entire IVF schedule that I based my work schedule around. Work schedules are not that flexible in my new job so it's important we stay close to what we've already planned, especially since I cannot afford to miss any days. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that AF decides to show up sometime before tomorrow morning. I'm trying to think happy period-friendly thoughts in hopes that will coax AF out of hiding. How nuts! I've never actually wanted my period to start before TTC. Yes, my outlook has definitely changed.

In other, more exciting news, I hit my 5% weight loss goal yesterday. I actually went a little over - I'm such an overachiever! - and am now down about 15.5 lbs. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. There are still habits I have that haven't been helping with my weight loss, like satisfying cravings every time I have one, but there's always room for improvement. I had hoped to be closer to my 10% goal by now, but through this whole process I've learned all over again just how hard I can be on myself. It was a slow start and Momma B's weight loss shot far ahead of mine and I beat myself up over it - not good. Over time I've lightened up a bit, but I know I'm always in danger of doing it again ... so I have to remain conscious of being nicer to myself.

  5. LMAO @anofferingoflove!!!!! Sounds like you're doing great with the weight loss. As soon as you stop hoping your period will come, it will be there when you are least prepared, no doubt.
