I broke down and bought the tests....

and I told myself I wouldn't do it....but I couldn't resist the temptation. The ovulation test was just staring at me.....and I caved...

I thought I would be able to give it a couple of months of trying...being hopeful that I didn't need the test....or that I could figure it out on my own...but what's the harm???

Oh least I don't have to think about it anymore.

Work update!!!! It's official, my co-worker is officially leaving...which means many good and positive things in my career ahead! Number 1- I get her office- which I'm totally excited about and thinking about paint colors now....2- no more Drama!!! 3- I think I actually may LOVE my job now that's she's gone. She's a really sweet person on a social level...but a pain in the ass to work I'm really excited about the journey ahead. Two more weeks with her and then she's outta here....

I met a lady today at work who had an insulin pump. She brings her daughter to the workshops I develop and has been for a long time. She saw my pump and asked me if I was a T1- and I got excited. We talked for a few minutes about pregnancy and babies. Her daughter is 2 and she wants to have another one. We're going to try and stay in touch- I told her it was nice to know someone in person who I can talk to!

We have another wedding this weekend...and next weekend as well...and the weekend after weekends are busy and I'm ready to do tonight the hubby and I are just chillin at home...gotta love movie nights!!


  1. Yay for movie nights! We are super busy these days too so I asked TB if he wanted to have date night tonight. And there is NO SHAME in buying the tests. Whatever helps, you know?!?

  2. Wow, that's a lot of weddings! Congrats on the new job and new office. It's so great when you can find a renewed love in your job! Good luck!

    And good luck with the ovulation sticks! Hopefully having them will take some of the pressure off. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you!

  3. Keep us posted on how those tests work... I say go for it with everything you can. If they help, then why not!?

    The job stuff sounds great! Glad things are falling into place!

  4. I'm also a T1, and had been trying for three months before buying some ovulation tests (at the suggestion of my very lovely dietician). After all, the waiting can drive you crazy when you're working so hard on your diabetic control. Month four came along, the stick predicted when I'd ovulate, and amazingly I found out I was pregnant three days ago! My head's still spinning and I can't stop smiling. I'm certain the ovulation tests helped.

    Wishing you the very best of luck.

  5. I love running into other T1's out in the real world! So awesome that the lady saw your pump and asked you about it.
