The Chronicles of the Weezie and the inflatable turtle
Weezie's random ramblings!!! Wahaaa!!
Social events and not very social events...
It's been about a year now, that me and Taina have been actively trying to get pregnant. I say actively, because we had been semi-trying for several months prior to that, but not thinking about it too much.

Still nothing though. I go on forums online sometimes, read about other people who are getting frustrated with trying to conceive and not getting there. I haven't gotten quite as full-on as some of them have. There are people on these threads talking about taking basal body temperature readings several times a day on particular days when they might be ovulating, and they throw around all these acronyms, being all "bla bla bla OPK" and "BBT thermometer" and I read it and I'm just like, "Huh?"

But still, I have gotten to the stage of trying pharmacy ovulation testers and I'm still diligently following this 12 week diet and exercise plan the gym has me on, trying to lose weight in the hopes this will help improve my chances of conceiving. I'm on Week 10 of it now, lost just over 14 kg all up so it's good, but it's a little disheartening when I read online about the ideal body weight and BMI for fertility, and I'm still quite far above that.

Still, on Sunday and Monday this week, for the first time ever, I think I might have actually experienced symptoms of ovulation. Up till now, I've really been relying on these pharmacy testers and also my phone app that tracks my monthly cycles and stuff to try and figure it out from those, but they reckon there are certain symptoms that people sometimes notice when they are ovulating, like very mild cramps similar to period cramps and things like that. And I actually noticed a couple of these symptoms this week and so I figured I should listen to what my body is telling me, and ignore the fact that my phone app thinks I shouldn't be ovulating for another week or so.

So who knows, it might just work. If not, then next month I plan to go see a doctor, see if they can run tests and stuff just to make sure nothing is wrong.

I woke up this morning feeling a little stressed about things. Just work tasks, and the fact that I was running late getting ready, and the fact that there were errands I had been meaning to run that kept getting put off because of needing time for other stuff like going to the gym and such. So I ended up taking the day off sick. As it happens, my digestive system is a little off today so it's not a fake sickie after all. But I think I needed the day off more for my emotional well-being than for my physical well-being.

It's a beautiful sunny day outside, so it's nice. I went for a long walk later on this morning, got some exercise in the sun. Played some WoW of course too today.

I still haven't run many of those errands I need to do, but actually it's good to have a day to take it slow, plus having some alone time because I don't get that often.

Taina had a party last week, invited some of his friends from his IT course around. They are mostly younger than us, in their early 20s, but we had fun playing That's You on the PS4 and playing some Cards Against Humanity and Secret Hitler too. Luke came over too, so it was nice that someone I knew was there too. Me and Luke were both the sober ones surrounded by drunk people, but that's okay. I'm fine with not drinking.

It was a busy weekend really, because after having this party on Friday night, we then went out to Jess and Luke's place for dinner on Saturday night. A bit more chill of course, we just ate dinner and sat around chatting and watching old, classic 90s music videos on YouTube. But nevertheless I felt quite tired by the end of the weekend.

So, I guess now the thing to do is try to keep on top of things. In another couple of weeks, I have Halloween, and then Guy Fawkes and my birthday to look forward to. The diet plan finishes like the day before my birthday so that means I can have a great time pigging out on my birthday, before getting straight back into eating healthy again after that.

And in the meantime, we wait and see how the whole baby-making trials have worked out this month.
