Benching Myself

 I think we are going to take the "let it happen, if it happens" route for now. I am still going to linger on The Bump to see if/when I may be emotional support for others, but for the first time in almost a year and a half, I am probably going to take a month or two and just TRY (again, I said TRY) not to over-think which CD I am on, how many days before I can test, no temping, no ovulation tests, and no thinking about any slight symptoms that might give me a small amount of hope. Have you ever felt that ALL you were thinking about was getting pregnant? Lately, it has become just ALL we (husband included) think about and has distracted both myself and my husband from major priorities.... like work. We both work at the same place and because MY trainee made a boo boo on one of my husband's wokorders and it was not caught in time, we were both suspended for 3 days.... SO, today was a pretty emotioal day.... BUT we have the next 2 days to focus on only eachother- nothing with work.

    I completely understand where you are coming from with this. I'm pretty sure we are taking a break as well. I just need some time to be myself again and not obsess over every little thing that my body does.

    Take time for you and your relationship. Initially I was adamant on no break but due to timing we took 2 months off and it has been amazing for my husband and I. We're here if you need us!

    Thank you ladies! Yes, I knew I was right to make this decision when AF arrived this morning showing her ugly face (this was our first Clomid round). But I still will check in and post if I can help. It just might not be the time for us :-( You ladies have been very supportive and encouraging. It is good to know that I have a group of people who understand.

    XOXOXO
