Cycle Day 1


Disappointing, but not surprising.  This cycle just didn't feel "active," like anything was happening.

I have had a couple of early chemical pregnancies that didn't stick (as well as a bit later miscarriage a few years ago, but that's a post for another day), and I feel like I notice subtle conception feelings in my body.

People say every cycle is different, and sometimes you just don't know, but I find it hard to believe I would have no clue at this point.  Wouldn't mind being proven wrong!

Looking forward to this weekend. . .

Tonight, we are having dinner at the restaurant near where sh/cm lives called "Crepevine," where we had several of our early dates.  For a variety of reasons, we haven't been lately, but tonight I am very much looking forward to a glass of red wine and one of their famous gourmet burgers.

Sunday, we are starting the day with one of my favorite weekend activities, a trip to the Farmer's Market, and then heading off to a workshop called, "The Workshop Workshop."  Yep, I just said workshop three times in one sentence. hehe  It's about creating an impactful workshop in your area of expertise, building from the ground up.

I hope to expand my workshop creation/facilitation abilities beyond past interactive theatre and book-based workshops and bring some new techniques on board.  Potential for solo work, money making, career and self development content, Transition Town/localization/sustainability work, partnering with local organizations, etc.  Woo hoo!

What are your weekend plans?


  1. I'm sorry the cycle didn't work out... I know what you mean about just knowing though. That's how I felt my second cycle. As much as I wanted it to stick, I just felt like there was no way it had. I knew it in my bones. Still sucked to have it confirmed though. Sorry lady!

  2. I hope you enjoyed your burger and red wine last night. I'm sorry your natural cycle didn't do it, but I get the feeling you're not giving up yet.

  3. So sorry this cycle didn't work for you. I have a feeling that I'll be in the same place you are in about 10 days. If my temperatures are anything to go by, I don't think I even ovulated this cycle. :(

    I hope the wine was good. Good luck with this next cycle!

  4. I'm sorry this cycle was a bust. Enjoy your date tonight! It sounds like your weekend will be packed with fun. I love visiting the local farmers markets here, too.

  5. I'm sorry to hear this cycle didn't work out. I hope you have a great weekend which helps focus your attention on the exciting future of possibilities!

    I'm spending my weekend on my new sectional couch with my dog!
