I got my period this morning.
Obviously, I'm completely bummed.
It's not like I thought I was pregnant or anything, but I bet each month until my period comes, I'll go through this whole crazy cycle every 28 days.
Last night, on a whim, I went to CVS to look at ovulation testing kits. I stood there reading the backs of all the boxes, looking at price tags, contemplating. I text messaged Sarah for her opinion and she suggested I wait on buying one since they are kinda pricey, and since I am just starting out, it's only been one to two months of trying. So I slowly put the box back down, but at this rate, I couldn't walk out empty-handed so I grabbed a 3-pack of EPT pregnancy tests, figuring even if I don't need it this month, I'll now have it on hand for when I do. Oh and I grabbed a gigantic bag 'o Skittles, too. Yep, I definitely was PMS'ing.
Anyway, I woke up this morning with the most insane cramps ever and in a cranky-ass bad mood. I told Daryl that I knew I was getting my period so he tried to joke around to make me feel better.
"Don't worry honey. We'll have fun trying again this month. I'll work extra hard so you can hop on that pregnancy-train." He said with a smile, before leaving for work. (We know a couple of people now that are pregnant.)
Anyway, here I sit on the couch under a blanket this morning, stuffing my face with Skittles, and reading blogs, trying to cheer myself up. I pulled open one of my favorite new blogs, Kitty Concerto, and lo and behold Mrs. Kitty's post is ALL about ovulation testing kits (she, like me, is trying to conceive). So at that moment I decided I'm going to run back to the store, either today or tomorrow, and pick one up after all. I'm going to trust my gut. I've been analyzing different web sites inputting my information and figuring out my most fertile days but of course there is some difference in the information. I'm figuring the kits will hopefully be a little more clearer for me to understand.
But for now, I'm going to continue to eat Skittles.
