....isn't it ridiculous that we live our lives in roughly 2 week increments, constantly wishing for the future?

:mrgreen: Yes. In fact, I saw a good tee- shirt a while back on a post on here. I'll try and find it but it summed up the month pretty well for me.

Found it - here it is - would never wear it of course but I found it funny!Image

Yes, me too. I just have a kind of "hakuna matata" type attitude, although I do like to poas!

So, my red raw maca arrived yesterday and my new prenatals. I tolerated both of them well so that is good because normally some multi vits and supps, make me sick

Yes, that's crazy how costly they are there in SA.

My photobucket has been messed up. Telling me I need to upgrade for extra bandwith? Does not even make sense. There is a new virus going around so I'm avoiding it.

CD 8 and am hoping for a normal on time O this month. Have some opk's arriving today.

I just the other day downloaded the photobucket app and realized I still had an account from almost ten years ago. Found a handful of pics of my 2 oldest nieces as littlies! So sweet.
so Simone, you are 3 days behind me! Good luck to both of us this go round :-)
I won't get any 'action' till cd 14 saturday night but I usually O about cd 16 so it might all be for the best in the end.
How is everyone doing?
National Arts Festival starts tomorrow here, 11 days of amazing they call it....more like 11 days of madness lol! I hope we go and see some shows and I MUST do the rounds of the art exhibitions this year. Every year I either work the whole time or end up going all agoraphobic and staying home.
Ange have you ever come up for Fest?
Simone you should Google it and see what I'm talking about. There's an official website with the complete program online for the main and fringe events.
Anyway....hope everyone's o.k.?

Ohhh looks great T and I hope you go. Sometimes, ttc just kind of takes over my life and I really shouldn't let it. So important to find the right balance other wise you'll drive yourself mad. :D

You too T - Hope it all goes well.

Ang - how are you feeling?

Well. I started on the maca supplement and lets just say this. I'm stopping it now, right now as we speak! I have gained 1.8 in a week so far (tomorrow is official weigh in day for the week but it is not going to be good). So many women have reported weight gain. I have not cheated on my plan so I know it is not that, it is simply this supp, I know it. Feeling so meh. It's meant to be brilliant for fertility. WAIL! :doh:

Simone, about the maca, I don't know if it's relevant but on some board somewhere I read that the raw powder is very hard to digest for some and leads to tummy issues, however there is a different type, what it is I am not sure as maca is relatively unknown here and way too expensive. Maybe look into that?
A similar thing happened to me with an ayurvedic liver detox that my sister recommended to me, I just kept picking up weight so I googled it and found it's often prescribed to anorexics to stimulate appetite. ...lol! the exact opposite of what I need ;-)
