I Am A Masochist.

mas·och·ism (ms-kzm)

n.
1. The deriving of sexual gratification, or the tendency to derive sexual gratification, from being physically or emotionally abused.
2. The deriving of pleasure, or the tendency to derive pleasure, from being humiliated or mistreated, either by another or by oneself.
3. A willingness or tendency to subject oneself to unpleasant or trying experiences.

See as how I am not a pervert, nor do I derive pleasure from pain, I was more aiming for definition #3.
 
Today I took a pregnancy test.  I waited until I was 20 days late.  I am on cycle day 47.  My longest previous cycle was 45 days last month.  I have been having lots of cramping but no bleeding, and I REALLY want ramen and peanut butter.  This was my best shot at a positive pregnancy test.  It was (of course) negative.
 
I knew it would be.  After 47 cycles without getting pregnant its a pretty good bet.  I am NOT a gambler, but I would totally put money against me getting pregnant any given month.  A pretty good amount of money.  I made Michael look at it, which is why I am awake right now.  He was not impressed since I had peed on it.  And then I had to go look at it too.  After all he might not know that a faint line is still a positive.  All I had was an invisible line.  Does that count?
 
I was going to wait an extra week to test.  One more week for my period to start.  But Michael made me buy tests yesterday, and when they are sitting right on my kitchen table (I take a long time to put things away) I can't help but want to pee on them.  It was a three pack so I am set for quite awhile.
 
So now it is 7 am and I am at the computer eating Valentine's Day Junior Mints for breakfast.  Nothing like starting your day right.  But chocolate releases endorphins right?  After a negative pregnancy test I need endorphins so I can keep my promise to Michael of not being a crazy b*tch to him tonight when he gets home because my stupid body can't just function like it is supposed to.  I would say his doesn't either, but this month its all my body making problems for me, because his sperm count has nothing to do with me having the longest cycle ever.
 
These Junior Mints are amazing.  I mean they taste the same, but the novelty of them is awesome!

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
