Time To Relax...

That's what I'm going to try and do this month. I know it sounds crazy cause I hate people telling me to do it, but that's what I'm going to try and do. More for my sanity than because I think it will help me achieve pregnancy. I've quit temping and I swear I'm not going to pick up the thermometer once this month. On CD 8 we are going to start BDing every other day until I'm more than positive I've O'd.

To keep Brian up with the plan, while he was in the shower on Saturday I put little messages in his phone that say things like "Guess what you're getting tonight!" on his calendar so it will go off in the afternoon and tell him. That way he doesn't have to think to much about it and neither do I. Only a few more days until we start the marathon! I hope it works, but I'm really going to try and not think about it. I just have that feeling that with not temping I'm going to worry about if I'm really sure I O'd when I think I did. I might break out the OPKs cause I still have a bunch left from my Internet order, but I haven't decided yet. We'll see when the time comes.


  1. I'm glad you're relaxing this month and keeping away from the BBT. Don't worry about knowing when you O. You'll be surprised at how easily you'll be able to tell without all that crap after TTC so long. I'm not even trying this month, and I can already tell I'm O'ing earlier than usual. After months and months of paying attention to every sign, it's just habit now.

  2. So happy to hear that you are going to relax this month. This month for us was a non relaxing month and it was not so great. Temping is such a double edged sword isn't it? You like to know when you ovulate but at the end it starts getting a little to much to bear and the pressure is on. I really hope that this is your cycle . I'll be back to visit again :D

  3. we do sometimes need to relax, not as the solution to get preggers, but to just take a breather from all that ttc madness.

    have a great time!

  4. Personally, I found it hard to be romantic when we were ttc, especially with the damned Clomid. I did the same too. I would message babes on his mobile with dirty little messages and say I'M GONNA POUNCE ON YOU TONIGHT! or LOOK WHO'S GONNA GET LUCKY?! lol.

    Anyway, I am hoping this month's for you..
