lunch time update

Just a quick update while Bubs finishes up her lunch (she is feeding herself all of a sudden- banana and toasted sandwich fingers will soon be on the floor).

I am not preggers.  Totally convinced myself that I was.  7dpo- implantation dip, 8dpo- start of triphasic pattern, 9dpo- odd one of low temp, 10dpo- another low temp and wtf is that??  My period???  WTF?  I have a 14 day luteal phase.  Sometimes 13 days.  Apparently not this time round.  Although the bleeding cleared at 12dpo, it started up again the next day.  So the burny nips and nausea I had must have been in my head as there was nary a faint line to be seen on any of the 3 FRERS I peed on.  Well, I swore I saw a line, but honestly, I am pretty sure I didn't. 

In other news, my Bubs Diet is working.  That is when you pretty much only eat what the toddler refuses during the day, and just a small breakfast and dinner (whatever can be eaten in the time it takes Bubs to empty her sippy cup and dump her food on the floor and decide she is done).  I am down about 6 kilos.  So yay. 

Today I am going to quit my job.  Double yay!  I don't do much, and I want to do even less, and it has been stressing me out and causing undue anxiety so I am done.  Just gotta go tell the boss. 

Lunch is finished.  Ta ta for now.

Where we are at

I am debating whether or not to stop blogging.  I always envisioned taking this blog more seriously, posting thoughtful, well written posts, but I just can't be bothered, and I honestly don't have that much time.  Maybe one day in the future I will pick up and do a parenting blog.  Probably not, but maybe.  In the meantime I will just post here every now and again with a quick update, until I am ready to completely stop.

The bubs in nearly one!!  She has 3 chompers, crawls and pulls her self up, and also is a bit feral.  Seriously.  This child growls.  We call her Beezlebub (I need an old priest and a young priest!).  But it replaced the screeching, so I will take it for the sake of my ears.  She also head bunts things she likes, as a cat does.  I think this started because I used to give her eskimo kisses and nuzzles, so I think her version is a head bunt.  Either that or she thinks she is a cat.  She likes bath time, family feud (the NZ version- it is on before the news), toast (especially if it is mine), yogurt, the cats and all cat like things and pulling grass up from the ground.  She hates any food I try to feed her, feeding herself, when her rolly turtle flips on his side, the 5 minutes she has to wait for me to get breakfast ready (even though she will only eat a few bites) and nappy changes (she goes into a crocodile death roll and I try not to get poo everywhere).  The thing I am loving most right now is how much she looks like a frog when she is crawling about the house, and peeking at her around furniture.  She loves peek-a-boo.

TTC #2.  We are 7dpo.  Could be an implantation dip on the chart (if the temp goes up tomorrow that is), but I don't have much hope for this cycle- our timing was off due to a trip and a teething bubs.  Before my delayed ovulation I was feeling confident, just like when we first started trying for Bubs way back when.  But no peeing on sticks, no obsessing for me this time around, because the Bubs in on the march and playing with her toys one minute, trying to get into the rubbish the next.  Of course, I say that now at 7dpo...lets see how I feel about it in 4 days or so. 

So here is a cute pic of my Bubs.
