Doin' the 2ww in style

I leave tomorrow for a week at the beach.

I can. not. freaking. wait to have a whole week off. The house we're renting doesn't have internet access, so the laptop stays home, and my colleagues are on strict orders to only call me if some crazy emergency comes up that only I can solve. (From afar, mind you.) My biggest decision for the next 7 days will be whether to go to the beach before the kiddo's nap, or go for a bike ride to the park.

I come back on 11dpo, just two short days before my (stupid, stinking, dreaded, nasty bitch of a) period is due. The day after I come back from my "family trip" (since "vacation" is probably not the right word for a trip I'm taking with our 2-year old, who will likely still wake up as his normal 6:00am every day), I will have another fantastic diversion for a couple days. My very good friend is coming in from out of town, and will be staying with me beginning the day after we get back from the beach. I haven't seen her in about 4 years, and I'm super psyched to spend a few days with her.

Now, if things go as I dread (expect?) that they will, my period will come in the middle of my friend's visit. Luckily my friend loves her some beer and pizza, so I think I'll have a good excuse to get my drink on. And if things go well .... well, perhaps I'll be distracted enough not to run to the store to buy a HPT.

Have a fantastic week everyone!


  1. Oooooh, have a WONDERFUL TIME!!! A week at the beach -- oh man, I am super jealous. Can't wait to hear all about your fabulous get-away-from-it-all trip (and early pregnancy symptoms) when you get back. :)

  2. Have a great trip. Will be thinking of you as you have lots of things to keep your mind off the TWW!

  3. Have a great time at the beach, that's the best way to do the 2ww.
