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.

CD 10 – High Fertility October 8, 2010

So according to my CBE Fertility Monitor, I’m on High Fertility.  This is a little concerning because it’s awfully early for it to be high.  I haven’t gotten a surge with my smiley OPK, but I’m worried that our swimmers won’t come in time (they’ll be here on Monday).

I’ve been trying to remember to take my BBT.  My alarm clock actually says “Don’t forget to take your temperature!”  For some reason, I get up and go straight to the bathroom to POAS but taking my temp isn’t as easy to remember.  I didn’t start till 2 days ago, so I hope that it actually helps me.  I’m now a member of FF (Fertility Friend) so that’s one more thing I can obsess over.

I want a baby so badly it hurts…. 

We went window shopping yesterday and ended up in the baby section of Old Navy.  It took every thing I had not to lose it in the store.  It’s like this overwhelming ache in my chest. Of course we got completely lost in the baby section and lost all track of time.  I’m tearing up just thinking about it.

Anyway, the wordle for the day is:

          I got to POAS for the first time this cycle today.  WOOHOO!!  I also ordered my swimmers, which will arrive Oct 11.  We only ordered 1 vial this time – the way I see it if it is meant to be then it will happen.  My friend S told me that the egg I released last month just wasn’t the baby that was meant for me.  I gotta say, I like thinking about it like that.  Hopefully this little egg is the little one we’re meant to share our life with.
And the wordle for the day is:

 

OK, now I’m confused…. September 13, 2010

So I woke up this morning and slowly made my way to the bathroom.  Half asleep I went ahead and POAS and sat to wait for it to analyze.  After almost falling asleep on the toilet, I looked over to the monitor to find this!

Yes, that means HIGH FERTILITY!!  I should get 5 days of this, then ovulation.  Now, I’ve read that the first month isn’t always completely accurate because it is learning your body, which is why I’m also doing the CBE Digital OPK.  I get to PO that S today to see if I get a smiley.  If so, insemination #1 should be Tuesday and #2 Wednesday.  OMG OMG OMG OMG!!

And the wordle for the day is…

 

And we have another big 0…. September 10, 2010

POAS today – this morning the fertility monitor still says low fertility; the OPK is a big empty 0.

The goods come on Monday!  OMG!

 

UGH!! September 8, 2010

So I was supposed to POAS this morning.  I woke up and, still asleep, went to the bathroom and didn’t do it!!  SERIOUSLY!?!??!!  I tried so hard to muster up some more, but it just didn’t happen.

So, since I have this strong urge to POAS, even though it’s early, I used my OPK (Clear Blue Easy Digital Ovulation Test).  Of course it was negative –
To answer your questions, yes – I did this at work.  Yes, I took that picture at my desk.  No, I wasn’t caught by anyone. The little empty circle means no surge – a smiley face will indicate when my LH surge has occurred and we can inseminate.

Second crappy news of the day, our main donor is no longer available!  I’m sitting here right now very close to tears.  It’s so weird, because I didn’t know this person, but just KNEW that he was going to be the right one (apparently so did everyone else).  Our second option is extremely low on vials, so his cost skyrocketed!  We went with our 3rd option – which doesn’t make me extremely happy but I can’t complain – at least one of them was available.

Sitting on hold with the bank and the song Revival by the Allman Brothers Band is the hold music.   I’ve never heard of the song, but the lyrics were perfect!

People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you hear it?  Love is in the air.We're in a revolution.  Don't you know we're right.Everyone is singing.  Yeah!  There'll be no one to fight.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.Love is everywhere.Love is everywhere.Love is everywhere.Love is everywhere.Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.People can you feel it?  Love is everywhere.
Love is everywhere….
