Since last cycle ended abruptly with a temperature shift and the appearance of my period, we knew it was time to reconsider our timing. We’d already decided to take a break, but putting it into practice is a whole lot more difficult than I imagined.
For the last 15 months, I’ve been doing everything I possibly can to increase my fertility and be aware of what my body’s doing. So to chuck out my thermometer and ignore my fertility signs seems pretty counter-intuitive. There’s not much else I’m changing – as far as things go, we’re certainly not preventing pregnancy. But it still seems ridiculous to forget about everything we’ve learned.
So far, this cycle has been extremely difficult. Not sure where all of these emotions are coming from; I’m used to sulking for an hour or two and then moving on. It’s been four days and I’m having a hard time shaking off this disappointment.
So, instead of sitting on the couch, losing myself in junky tv, I found a new recipe. The picture above is of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies, and they are delicious. Seriously, seriously delicious. I promise, as soon as I’m at a real computer again, I’ll post the recipe. But for now, enjoy salivating.
I hope you’re all doing a little better than I am.
