Okay ladies, I need some motivation. Have my first assignment due in a month and I've only done an hour of work this week (first week), usually I've clocked up around 15 hrs by now. Finding the subject rather boring and the lecturer is not up to scratch in so many areas. CD22 and 4dpo, so I should really be knuckling down whilst waiting, and waiting.
If I don't get stuck into it soon I will need to start studying during the day and I don't want to eat into the kids' time at all. And I can't buy 'study food' due to the PCOS - so I'm left with a bit of fruit, nuts.
Hi Ladies! I haven't been able to catch up on all the posts yet after being away but had a look at the front page and just wanted to stick my head in to say congrats to everyone who got a BFP!! And to everyone who has had the witch arrive!
Sending lots of baby dust to everyone left to test!!
sorry I haven't been on here for a while we just finished moving into our new home
Well as for me I'm 8dpo and feeling a bit confident. I had some cramping on 5 and 6dpo which I don't usually have til closer to AF. I've also been feeling nauseated the last two mornings. My bbs are a bit sore on the sides and last night had a low grade fever with chills and body aches which is now gone. I've also had the driest mouth and thirsty all the time. So hopefully this is all good signs will be starting to poas over the weekend
good luck to everyone who's going to test soon and congrats to those who already got their BFP's
Hi Little Ted. What subject are you studying? I find with essays the best approach (for me) is to read a few interesting journal articles first to stimulate my interest, whilst simultaneously reflecting on the question. Then I draft an outline & put the key points I want to get across into the relevant sections, together with quotes from the relevant articles &/or text. Then I go back to reading to find more inforation to add depth to my arguments, again reflecting on the question (& my argument) at the same time. Then I just plug away at each section until it's done.
As for other ways to keep motivated...
I find music can help ...as long as it's instrumental, otherwise I get distracted singing along!
Good luck (& with the tww). I'm doing 2 relatively boring subjects this term, but they should also be easy (so hopefully less stressful). I'm already ahead of my game in reading & learning exercises, so hopefully I can keep that up for the next 10 weeks. I'm also hoping I'm well and truly utd by then!
