The road less traveled…

My partner and I were attempting to become pregnant. For many reasons – including my sanity – we have put that on the back burner for now and are just working on walking down the road less traveled. We've been through Katrina – moved to Colorado – and our next adventure is headed to California.

     I got an email last week that we are set to order sperm from them. It’s so weird that you can just go online and order sperm…Maybe only because I’m a lesbian and semen/sperm is such a foreign object to me…

Dear Amanda,
Your registration paperwork has been processed and you may now order donor sperm for home inseminations.

Isn’t that just a bit strange??

          We went and watched The Switch last night.  It’s quite a funny and moving movie.  Of course, with me being all consumed with this TTC thing, I think I was a bit more moved than most would be.  I was quite impressed with her determination to go it completely alone.  I’m utterly terrified and I have a wonderful partner to move through this process with.  The strange thing is…I don’t know what I’m terrified of.  I’m not scared of a baby being here – I’ve had lots of experience with babies and I don’t have a problem with that.  I’m not scared of not being able to do it.  I don’t know – scared of not knowing what’s going to happen?  Scared of the time it’s going to take to do this?  Scared of finding out something is wrong? 

          I bought a baby book this weekend at the grocery.  It was on sale and was just too adorable not to pick up.  That’s the first baby thing that I have bought…No more until we find out we are pregnant because I don’t want to jinx it.  Currently I’m bidding on a Clear Blue Easy Fertility Monitor and a Basal Body Thermometer on Ebay.  I’d like for my first cycle that I chart on Fertility Friend to be as perfect as possible.  

          One thing that I have noticed from reading other TTC blogs is that my obsessiveness will be shared!  It’s nice to know I’m not the only obsessive person on here.  Lori and I were just discussing how our first 2ww will be a few days ago.  According to my ovulation chart, it had only been 5dpo.  HOW IN THE WORLD am I going to be able to wait 2 weeks if 5 days seems like an eternity?!?!?  I really just want to get this process actually moving…..COME ON AF!!
