Weekend Review and Cycle Update

So I'm finally getting around to writing about our weekend in Missouri. To sum it up, it was tiring and hectic, but that's normally the case with my family. Both of my sisters were home for spring break, so my mom had all of her daughters home for her birthday. Keegan and I were able to surprise my mom at her preschool which was awesome. I wish I had a camera with me because her expression was priceless. What made this visit more....interesting...than the others was the fact that the cops had to be called.

Some back story: My youngest sister, C, is in high school and along with that comes high school drama. She recently broke up with her on-again, off-again boyfriend of two-ish years. Apparently he didn't take well to the break up, and him and his friends have been egging and TP-ing my parents house (we think, so far there isn't any concrete proof.) Anyways, Friday night, my middle sister, B, was coming home late at night with her boyfriend and noticed a group of high school boys walking towards my parents house. This is strange because my parent's neighborhood is filled with either families with college aged kids, elderly couples, or families with babies. There aren't any high school aged kids around. So B automatically assumed that they were coming to egg my parent's house again. She started walking towards them and they bolted towards their truck which was parked down the road. B's boyfriend, J, followed the truck for a while to see where it would go. The truck drove around the general area a few times, not realizing they were being followed, and then doubled back to go back to my parent's house. J pulled up beside them and got a general description of the kids inside as well as the license plate number. The next day, my parents called the police with the license plate number and description of the kids.

Saturday night, my mom was letting one of the dogs out the front lawn and noticed some high school aged kids near our house again. Apparently she got so frustrated that she just started yelling at them in the middle of the road in her pajamas. My family is classy I tell you.

What is truly amazing about this whole experience is that Keegan and I were sleeping in the living room, right by the front door and heard none of this. I guess this shows how exhausted we were from the long drive!

Anyways, onto the stuff that I'm sure you're more interested in.

When I put in my temperature yesterday, I got cross hairs! Not as exciting as the first time I got them, but still nice to see that my body is doing something right for once. As you can see, we sexed the day after my positive OPK which was also the day before ovulation. The cross hairs plus sexing before ovulation has put a little glimmer of hope back into this cycle when before it seemed pretty unlikely. Now I'm in the two week wait at 5dpo. I don't think I have any pregnancy symptoms. I've had a headache from hell since last night, my boobs are tender, and I had a little bit of cramping, but those are also signs of my period coming, so I'm not getting my hopes up. So, now we wait. I'm not sure if I'm going to test. Part of me wants to, but part of me hates wasting money, so we'll see how I feel in a week or so. 

Hope everyone else is having a good week!
