DAY 12: If you are not yet a parent: What are you MOST looking forward to about parenthood?
I am most looking forward to creating new traditions and relationships in our family. I love my family so much, but the realtionships with my mom and sister are the WEIRDEST I’ve ever seen. Even though we all love each other dearly, there is this weird competition between the 3 of us that is not healthy. I want to raise children with the closeness I felt between my mom and sister, but without so much competition and blatant differences in which my mom has treated my little sister and I. I also can’t wait to see the relationships formed between Hubster and our kids and how my relationship with Hubster grows and evolves.
As far as traditions, we have all of these ideas about holidays, family vacations and even living everyday life that I can’t wait to start making!! 🙂
Now for the TTC stuff. I’m almost in the middle (?) of my cycle (if it’s longer than 23 days this time) and I’m CRAMPY AND BLOATED!!!!!! It doesn’t feel like the ovulation pain I felt before and now I’m worried AF is making a really early appearance since I’m only on CD11. 😦 So now I’m sitting at my desk with a heating pad in my lap and drinking this damn fertility blend tea hoping this is not AF.
Anyone feel period-like symptoms from ovulation?
Oh and I’m soooo proud. I turned down doughnuts TWICE this week and girl scout cookies! My office always has too many sweets and I almost always partake. 😉
