April 22: Weekends are rough

Since the Pilot is back in Georgia tying up loose ends at work for a month before he comes to Tucson for good, weekends have been rough. It’s funny because in a way, it feels like being back in Tucson is almost more difficult than it would have been if we went somewhere new. All of my friends that we used to hang out with have their own lives… with husbands/boyfriends/busy schedules too/etc. Hence, why weekends are rough.

I was invited to be the third wheel at two different dinners tonight. After declining, I’m sitting here moping around the apartment. Definitely having “a day” over here, and I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that the weekend is back. Weekends have always been a hard time, especially when we’re apart or during deployments. It’s when everything stops from my crazy week schedule and I realize I’m chilling here, by myself. This particular weekend was an extra kinda bummer because my BBT took a nosedive this morning.

I woke up, and it was back in the 96 range. I couldn’t go back to sleep because I was so confused (Aunt Flow isn’t due for another week and a half), and then convinced myself that maybe it was because of implantation? Maybe? I have no idea.

Yesterday, I almost took home a puppy from the Humane Society. I was about this close, but something was telling me to wait. So fingers crossed that there might be a reason…


Instead of moping and letting this bother me, I’m going to use the energy to take care of myself and be confident that things will work out and happen the way they’re supposed to.

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one with weird BBT patterns! I thought there was something wrong with me because its always in the 96 range. Thanks so much for posting all of this uber-private stuff….you are going to help so many women going through the same thing!!

    I had to completely throw BBT out the window because mine is so wonky!

    I just looked back at my chart and i had an implantation ‘dip’…but was def upset when it went down, i totally remember that feeling.

    I love reading these posts and I am so glad you are sharing. I’m also using the fertility awareness method and at times I feel so confused by it so it’s really nice to know I’m not the only one- and that I’m not the only one with a BBT in the 96 range a lot. Would you mind me asking what in your chart caused you to know you had imbalances and to seek out the homeopathic dr?

    I think you are SO brave to be this real. I wish all blogs were like this! Life isn’t perfect, but that’s okay!

    I love your blog Gina, and have you in my prayers… I want you to have a safe pregnancy & a healthy one too!

    Hi Gina,
    I am sure there are so many of us who would like to be mommies soon(er) and have no clue where to start. Could you do a biggggg post of the entire, ‘what to do, where to start with the whole process’ thing post. I am sure it will help a lot of us.

      You should buy “Taking Charge of Your Fertility” – its an amazing book and explains EVERYTHING! Comes with sample charts and all. 🙂

    • Fitnessista on June 8, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    I feel your pain. My hubby is gone Monday thru Friday, and it’s even worse when he is gone on the weekends. I just feel so lost, and lonesome. It was worse during my pregnancy, but good at the same time because I got in a ton of sleep. The end of deployment and settling was definitely the right time for the babe! I am super excited for you!!
