12dpo, Thankful

Temps dropping, still spotting. Not looking good for this cycle. And AF is due on Thanksgiving day (!). Good thing we don't have any big plans for the holiday. I will be cooking a turkey and we might have a couple friends over, but that's it. I love Thanksgiving, but this year I just haven't felt like putting in the effort. But I know I still have a lot to be thankful for:
  • DH - the kindest and most generous man I have ever met. We have been together over 7 years and he has never yelled or even been mad at me. I'm not kidding. He's a keeper.
  • Our families. We both have wonderful, loving, kind and supportive families.
  • Our dog. He brings such joy to both of our lives, and I couldn't imagine life without him.
  • Our jobs. We have them, and they're not that bad (most of the time!). We have several friends who have been laid off and unemployed for months, or, in one case, over a year.
  • Our friends. They constantly surprise me with their thoughtfulness and generosity. I have a lot to learn from them.
  • Finally, the blogosphere. It has been so gratifying to see that there are other women going through the same emotions I'm going through, walking the same difficult road of IF. Your stories inspire me to be more courageous and optimistic; to have an open heart and an open mind; and to not let this IF thing get me down (at least not that much!).


  1. Ugh about AF due on Thanksgiving! Last year I had AF on Thanksgiving AND Christmas ;-) I knwo how you feel!!! I also have so much to be thankful for :) Will be thinking of you!

  2. I'm sorry that this cycle wasn't the one :-( and that AF will be arriving on the Thanksgiving. What a butthead.

    Great things to be thankful for, hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Thank you for your comment on my blog. I really appreciate the input about your protocol.

    I'm sorry that this cycle was a bust. I'm expecting AF the day before Thanksgiving, and I have 20 people to cook for! But like you I am thankful for so many other things in my life, like HAVING 20 people in my life to cook for and celebrate with.

    Best wishes on your next cycle, hope we both get an early Christmas present.
