Sorry I missed last week. By the time I thought about it last Monday it was late so I told myself I would post it Tuesday. I flat out forgot it Tuesday so I decided to just wait until today. Sorry again!

    No updates here.

    GTKY: my favorite book was the Little House on the Prairie. When I got a little older it was the Baby Sitters Club series. I had every single one!

    My favorite movie was Wizard of Oz. Ironically, now I have to watch it when DH is not around because he hates it. He's afraid of the flying monkeys lol.

  • Hi EK!

     Well I sort of got an update on my job. Turns out the budget hasn't been finalized for FY14 so they can't promote anyone until 2nd quarter.  And the 2 positions available have now become 1.  My bosses told me I'm still in the running and to keep doing what I'm doing.  It sucks to have to wait longer but at least I know why I'm in limbo.

    GTKY: Going along with the siggy challenge, what was your favorite childhood book? Childhood movie?

    I loved a lot of books as a kid but my favorites were weird ones like Bunnicula (vampire bunny) and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.  I also had a lot of childhood movies that I would watch on repeat.  I think The Last Unicorn would probably be the one that stands out most.

    I'm so glad you heard something on the job instead of nothing. Fx for you!

    Hi EK and other ladies!

    Thanks for this check in!  I am 9dpo and anxiously awaiting the end of this 2WW.  I am pretty busy this week, so that should help.  Saturday I have a baby shower to attend, and the EDD for her is 2 weeks before mine was.  I think it will be fine.  I just hope AF doesn't show up right before I go :-(

    GTKY: Going along with the siggy challenge, what was your favorite childhood book? Childhood movie?

     I loved The Velveteen Rabbit as a kid. Now my favorite children's books are A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon and The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg (I cry every time I read that book!) As for a favorite move, I remember loving Disney movies, but I can't think of one in particular.

  • Hi EK!

    Bad moods all around here. Awaiting AF with a huge temp drop today and hoping she arrives soon as DH and I might be on a time crunch this cycle with him moving to Baltimore before me. Got a great big package from (I'm guessing) my insurance company full of formula for my upcoming due date....awesome.

    Hopefully we will figure out with an u/s this week what the next steps are this cycle. I have a feeling my RE will want to do an IUI, which I'm okay with. We will see.

  • I have not been on TB in awhile, not liking the change to the boards pages either :( Any who we are clear to TTCAL as per the doc orders, but DH and I decided to wait until Sept to actually start up again. My previous EDD is fast approaching 8.12.13 and I am not sure what to feel and I have to admit I am a bit nervous just thinking about it. 2 more AF's to go I am just thankful I have a new job that has been great at keeping my mind off of TTCAL 24/7 as it was before I've been actually able to feel normal again, but its never to far from my thoughts. I wish everyone well on their journey. 

  • WHOLY SHIT I am so sorry I dont even know why the hell that siggy just popped up OMG PLEASE FORGIVE ME

    No worries. I doubt anybody even saw it. Old siggys popping up was a huge problem last time they changed to this format. I guess the bugs are not worked out yet.
