Catching up

Monday, July 2, 2012

Whew!  It has been a whirlwind past several days.  I feel like I haven't had time to myself in forever!  I feel like I have been using lots of bullets lately, but I think that it is probably the best way to catch up at this point rather than writing a novella!  :-)

  • It all started on Thursday with the movie shoot.  I had to be on location at 8 AM to sign lots of papers and go through wardrobe.  They told us to wear mom clothes with the essence of Kmart/ JCPenney.  Too bad, I own nothing from either place and am not a mom.  :(  Luckily I own a few things from Ann Taylor that I was able to piece together. I passed through wardrobe without a costume change!  After that I sat.  I sat for hours...until about 7 PM.  Luckily I knew someone there and I made several friends.  Finally they called us to the set around 7 and then it was more sitting as we filmed a dance recital scene at an elementary school.  We were filming for about 4 1/2 hours.  I didn't leave the location until midnight!  The good news is that I think I might be in the movie!!  I was seated right behind the stars of the movie and was in the last group to leave for the night.  All and all it was a good experience.  I think that was the first and last movie that I am going to take part in though!
  • I ended up not going to work on Friday since I got home so late and didn't have any time to pack for my trip.  I had to rush around to get everything ready and then meet my sister to catch the train.  The weekend was really nice, but the 90 plus degree heat every day was a little bit much.  We walked around a lot, enjoyed some good food, and had some good conversation.  We got to meet my sister's boyfriend's parents who were really nice.  I am seeing a ring in her not so distant future!  The ride home yesterday was long due to bad weather.  Our train was about an hour delayed so I got home pretty late and didn't even have time to unpack. 
  • It is nice to say that I really didn't think too much about babies, pregnancy, or lack of pregnancy at all this past weekend.  Cycle-wise, I am pretty sure that I am out, though.  My temps were weird all weekend and kept going down.  They were back up today, but I just have a feel that this is not our month.  I have slightly sore breasts, cramps and PMS.  I am also so tired, but that is probably just because of my busy weekend.  One more thing that I have noticed is a stabbing pain in my lower abdomen.  Fabulous!  I have not tested yet.  I am only at 11 dpo and trying to stay strong.  Friday is supposed to be blood test day, but I am out of the office and since my doctor is near my work, if I get my period before then and take a negative test on my own, I am not going for the blood-work.  I hate waiting for a call that I know is to tell me that I am NOT PREGNANT. 
Now it is time for me to catch up on all the blogs that I missed.  Oh yeah and I should probably try to get some work done!  :o)

  1. Im hoping you get good news this week! The movie shoot sounds like it was a good time.

  2. I am having some of the same feelings you are and my temps were really crazy all weekend too. I think we still have a chance though! Could the pain have been from implantation? I guess temps drop a bit at implantation too but mine dropped even a little too low for that I think. I'm blaming the thermometer instead of anything else though. When do you plan to test?

    1. I was thinking of testing maybe at 13 dpo? That is when I got my BFP last time after testing negative at 11 dpo. I googled stabbing stomache pains and there were some posts/articles mentioning implantation, but I just don't think so. I wish I had a better attitude! When are you testing??

    2. Sunday if my temp is still high. That will be 15 dpo. Like you I'm doing htat because that is when I got my positive last time.

  3. Wow, what an exciting weekend! SO glad your mind got a break from worrying too, the best of luck!

  4. Hoping your temps stay up! Glad you got away from the stress of it all last weekend!

  5. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has a "feeling" it's negative, and I'm going with it. I also had this crampy sensation, sore breasts, and PMS like symptoms today at 11 DPO. I'm not sure what it feels like to be pregnant, but I'm sure this is not it.

  6. Mom clothes with the essence of Kmart/ JCPenney? Now there's a style!
    Here's hoping your "feeling" is off and that there's a BFP waiting for you at the end of this week!
