Something new!

Almost done this first glove, it just needs a thumb. I've never made gloves before... or knitted with more than one colour really, except for the gingerbread man thing.. but that was so that I could make these.... so not bad!!!

Hope for the future :)

My husband FINALLY got his official papers to sign to accept a PERMANENT position in his workplace. This comes after 4 1/2 YEARS of contracting to them before he could get permanency, at less than half the salary that he should have been making, so this is AMAZING news for us. :) He will have a significant pay increase, and his trip back to school will totally be put to use, I couldn't be happier for him.

I feel like maybe good things are starting to come our way, and that maybe things really will just fall in to place. If I could just get my job at permanent status, and then pregnant, everything would be freakin' fantastic.... but we'll take whatever we can get!

The Great TTC Crash of 2010

The last round of Clomid was another fail. I sort of went off my rocker a bit when AF hit, and I gave up on everything. Sometimes I just get so melodramatic momentarily that I just fly off the handle, then reel myself in.

I've decided to break from TTC. I don't know how long for sure, but I'm assuming anywhere from 6 months to a year.

That being said, we're not TTA exactly either, so, I'm heading in to whatever happens happens territory.

I've just decided that I just can't be this person that I've become who obsesses over every.single.little.ttc.thing. With Clomid I've gained somewhere between 15-20lbs, I'm not sure because I refuse to get on a scale. Also, I haven't really truly felt happy for some time, and I think it's just all the stress that I've been imposing on myself with TTC.

So, for now, I'm stepping back for forums, from charts, from temps, and from all other wonderful things TTC (except sex of course, LOL), and we'll just see how things roll.

If we're still nowhere in another 6mths-1yr, then I'll go back to the RE. So that's the plan, Stan.

Knitting for the holidays

So.. I've never knit with three colours before, and this is my first try.

It's a cup wrap thing, so that you don't burn your hands when you're holding a coffee (in a paper cup, though I didn't have one around to show it on, so here it is on this glorious martini shaker).

I sketched out the gingerbread guy on a grid, then attempted to transfer my drawing to knitting. Worked okay... sort of.... LOL

Today on Uterus Weekly

7 DPO, and halfway through the 2 week wait... that is if my LP ends up being 14 days, but it's usually 10-11. Only time will tell. :)

So far, I'm doing pretty good. I haven't had any phantom symptoms to drive me bonkers just yet, so I'm able to stay sane.

I forgot to temp this a.m since I slept in the spare room to get better sleep, so I've decided to just not chart the 2ww. I hope to avoid analyzing everything. If I make it to 14dpo, then I will test.. and hopefully I won't cave before then. :)
