Can You Keep A Secret?

So can you guys keep a secret? I have done everything "wrong" this month in regards to TTC! What cd am I on? Hell if I know.....I haven't stayed away from caffeine...I haven't stayed away from lunch meats.....I've been eating tons of sweets....and are you ready for this....no pineapple (unless you count the pina colada I thought about having). I have not taken my temperature and guess what?!?! I AM SLEEPING BETTER! My body needed a break...My mind needed a break....I needed a break.....

And here is the GREAT part for this month...I have NO EXPECTATIONS. Nurse Christmas (the new name I have assigned my new nurse...based on her real name) kept me on Clomid this month to stay in control of my cycles....I did OPK....got two positives on two different days and they weren't consecutive....weird huh?!??! but anyway ...there is a slight chance it could have worked....but I have no expectations....none.....and I am loving every minute of it! I am enjoying my time with my nephew and my family and everything there is to enjoy about Christmas (including the yummy desserts I am baking). I plan on having shrimp on Christmas.....I'm sure I will eat some antipasto......and I won't feel guilty!

......but OF COURSE...I won't drink.....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................just in case....

I am so glad you are taking a break- it sounds like just what you needed!!! Here's to letting ourselves take some time off from all the ttc circus :)

I think this is a great path to take. I honestly think that stress causes alot of the problems with getting pg...I mean look at all the ooppsss out there! DH and I decided to "try' at the beginning of the summer and see what happens...I had no expectations and Bam! I got pg...granted I had a micarriage, but now that I REALLY want it and I charted days, did OPKs...I am now in my 4th cycle trying! I am taking your path from now on...I hope this is it for you!!
