Nope

No news here. Move along. Nothing to see. Tomorrow will be 13dpo which is my normal LP length. I will most likely do my progesterone in the wee hours of Thursday morning and that will be the last of that, assuming that Thursday morning's test is negative still. I'm ready to move on. I've decided that I will be temping for the next cycle. I don't know: it just gives me something to obsess about. Plus I really want to assure myself that this cycle was just a fluke in not showing a clear thermal shift.

I don't write too much about G but I have to record this important phase in her development: today marked the start of the "no afternoon nap" phase. That's a big deal in this house. For the last week or so she has had trouble falling asleep at night and then has been waking up around 7:30am (way earlier than the old norm of 9!). Her naps were starting later and seeming to go longer. Last night J gently suggested that maybe she didn't need the nap anymore. But she does I tried to argue, even though I knew he was right. I remember when she grew out of her morning nap. I thought: whatever am I going to do for 5 or 6 hours straight while she's awake? We figured it out and adjusted. Now I'm thinking the same thing. I know my life is going to change somewhat. I'll have a lot less "me" time which means less scrapbooking and less computer time. On the other hand, the positive spin is that we'll have a lot more time to do things together without being restricted by that nap time. She was in bed by 8pm tonight and I haven't heard a peep out of her. I've got my fingers crossed that she will sleep till at least 8am or maybe even 9. At least that way I can keep my night owl hours for a while and get my stuff done. I have to say though I'm really tired today. I'm looking forward to quitting this progesterone and getting a good night's sleep soon!

I'm still holding out hope for you!

As for the naps, it's so sad when they start to go. Little R's keep getting shorter and shorter, but she sleeps every few hours, even if only for 30-40 minutes (work time for me). But, she wakes up at 7:30 AM daily without hesitation. Good luck!

Well, every change brings good and bad things! So I hope you can get the best out of the good things!
I'm sure you'll adapt just fine!!!
