Well, I haven’t tested yet.

My boobs are a bit sore tonight, mainly around the nipple but not the nipple itself – a bit late in the cycle for that, so that’s! I’ve also got a dull ache, like cramps are going to start…but it is too early.

I’ve just had a little poke around my vagina, and I am dry – probably because of our BD session last night. I’m just trying to find some hope.

In addition, I’ve got greasy skin around my forehead and temples, which I normally get this time of my cycle.

I’m not really symptom spotting…just trying to figure things out…

I haven’t slept properly for the last there nights, which is normal when AF is due, but we had sex last night anyway. We had to stop though, because I had a throbbing pain on my left side which really threw me. Also, Javier confirmed that there was no spotting, so that’s good!

Now today will be a big test! Firstly, I have to go in work and see what they have been saying about me. Secondly, I have my white knickers on for spot watch. I really pray it stays away this time.

I’m beginning to wonder if I could have ovulated later than I think, seeing as how my boobs are only getting big and tender at 10DPO, and my CM has dried up? I know the ovulation monitor messed up, but I know how to read the lines and I’m sure I had my peaks CD15 +CD16, as usual.

I wonder if sex this late in the cycle could have gotton rid of all my CM, including the spotting?

i’m not going to get excited yet, but I have to admit that there is a glimmer of hope.

Well I started to get excited. Every time i wiped there was nothing, so I had a poke around my cervix and the spotting was just hiding, pretty much like i feared. So AF is on her way. This is why I don’t test and try not to get my hopes up.

I’m crushed!

Natalia is finally back, and she and Folly are still joined at the hip as he followed her back too! My mouth popped open when I saw him walk into our house behind her. Hmmm, this was proving not to be just a holiday romance for my older brother. I wondered if Natalia also felt the same way.

But the fun part was when Natalia called Keith from our phone, to let him know that yes, she’s back, but no, she isn’t ready to pick up the kids yet. I could hear him hollering from the other end about her request for him to hold on to the kids until Monday, which was barely 48 hours away. But she stood her ground, and soon hung up.

Pulling Folly aside later, I asked him if he knew what he was doing, and my brother had actually laughed.

“You’re worried that she’s just on the rebound?” he’d asked, his eyes dancing cheekily. “Don’t worry, sis! She’s not!”

“Just be careful!” I said, but the statement was loaded. I remembered only too well how Folly’s last break up had destabilised him, transforming him from a high-flying investment banker to something of a nomad, traveling all over the world.

When they’d left for Natalia’s house, Javier and I had a gossip about this their relationship. He too is concerned, but more for his sister. He’s worried about her falling in love so soon after her separation from her long-time love, which is understandable. I also shared my own concerns about my brother. In the end, we accepted that both Natalia and Folly are grown adults, and there is nothing we can do about whatever it is they are up to. So, we absolutely won’t be doing any meddling.

For now…

Well, for now happened much sooner than we anticipated.

Even though Natalia had expressly asked Keith to keep the kids until Monday (tomorrow), he had shown up in their house this morning. He hadn’t even gone with the kids, so it was obvious that he was looking for trouble. Sure enough, he saw what it was he was hoping to see, as Folly had apparently been clad only in his boxer shorts, making himself a cup of coffee.

According to what we were told, Keith had let himself in through the kitchen door, at about 9.30 in the morning. He’d obviously had the intent of surprising the couple in bed, but Folly was already fixing breakfast for himself and Natalia. So, the first thing Keith had seen had been my 6 feet 5, muscular brother, his bare chest showcasing his ripped body, and his boxer shorts leaving very little to the imagination. Folly said Keith had gone red in the face, but hadn’t been able to say a word, even when Folly said hello. Instead, he had spun around and slammed the door with so much force, it almost shook the foundation of the house. He hadn’t even bothered to go upstairs to see Natalia, which was a good thing as he might have been less amused by the sight of his wife, lying naked in bed, waiting for her lover to serve her breakfast in bed.

I had a good laugh when I heard the story told. It serves Keith right! He’s the one who decided to leave after all. Whatever he sees now, he should just swallow it, digest it, hand the plate back, and say thank you!

Yeye man!
