Tonight after working a full day and sitting in traffic way too much I still managed to make an awesome dinner. Well hubby helped too 😉 We had salad, garlic bread, and beef satay skewers we grilled on our brand new grill. It was pretty yummy and the hubby said that I was awesome 🙂 The only problem is I am still nibbly. I wonder if it’s because I didn’t eat that much today. I already also ate a plum, two meatballs, and a handful of chex mix. I might go see what else I want after I finish this entry lol.
Tomorrow is 6 dpo. I’m kind of excited to hit this point. Why? This is when implantation can start. I seriously doubt that I will see any implantation bleeding or anything, but it could be happening and if I am going to feel real symptoms they could start soon. This also may make me nervous and stress out a bit, but hopefully I won’t too much. I’m trying to take Jen’s attitude. She doesn’t acknowledge any of the symptoms until like day 13. Every time I start to wonder or stress I tell myself what would jen do? 😉 Hopefully that will keep working.
This weekend is Yom Kippour. The jewish holiday where you atone your sins and you fast. I can’t fast – I get hypoglycemic and feel gross when I don’t eat. I was on the phone with my mom yesterday and she mentioned all the yummy food they are going to have when they break the fast on saturday. I was like wow that sounds so yummy I wish I could come. She said why couldn’t you? I talked to the husband and we are going! I will only get to see my parents for about a day, but I haven’t seen them in a while and will get to eat all the yummy jewish “soul food.” I am not going to services because I don’t have a ticket. You have to sign up before the high holy days to get one. I’m not disappointed about that though. I am a bad jew in that I hate going to services. I’m just not a good religious person. I like the spiritual side of things. This will also give me some distraction near the end of my 2ww which will be good.
What else? I’ve cut out all caffeine and I’m trying to avoid the artificial sweeteners. I know I don’t technically have to do it until about now when implantation starts, but I just started early so that I would have a better chance. Soda and flavored drinks are one thing I have the worst time giving up in the 2ww. I just want something with flavor to drink. What do you guys drink when you avoid caffeine and sweeteners? I have done pretty well I think. I have only cheated a couple of times when I had a flavored water with sweetener and a sip of the husband’s diet soda. Oh and the sonic lime lime-aid that was sooooo good last night. Yum.
