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.

CD14 – Chart help! October 7, 2013

So – We’re on CD 14 and have this chart:

FF2The thing is, there WERE crosshairs on there today that showed ovulation on Friday – Then I messed with it and now they are gone.  That one dot up high was taken at a much later time than normal – so I had it marked discard.  When I got the crosshairs I un-discarded it and the crosshairs went away.  I re-discarded it and they are still gone.

The time she takes it is a bit inconsistent anyway – it gets taken between 7-9am every day, depending on when she has to work.  SOOOO – Do you think that time frame is making it off?  Would you go by the + OPK today or by the crosshairs that have come and now gone?

UGH!  This is so frustrating!  I really don’t want to wait another month and track it, but I also don’t want to waste $500+ and do it the wrong day.  What do you think is more likely an ovulation marker, BBT or the OPK?

My brain hurts…


I Got a Smiley! December 2, 2010

IF we were going to inseminate this month, it would be tonight!  I had a feeling today so I went ahead and POAS and got my smiley.  Kinda makes me sad that we are not going to get to at least try this month, but I am saving that 1K to pay for the treatments we are going to do at the doctor, so that’s a good thing.

Our appointment at the new doctor is this coming Tuesday – I’m cautiously excited about this one.  I hope that all goes well and we can be pregnant before the new year! 


Attempting to be Positive October 25, 2010

          It’s only been 2 tries (and one was a bust) so there’s no reason to be upset or worried.  Typically it takes 3-6 tries to get pregnant! (that’s my mantra lately)
          So, right now I can do nothing but wait for AF to arrive (unless this last one wasn’t a bust and I’m amazed that I am pregnant with sketchy timing and absolutely no symptoms!)  I’ve got a huge Halloween party to go to this weekend (my FAV holiday) so that will make the time fly.

          Lori and I watched a beautiful movie this weekend about a lesbian couple TTC.  It’s called Making Grace and I was either on the verge of tears or laughter throughout the entire thing.  I highly recommend it!

I must thank my friend over at Crazy Lesbian Mom for sharing this fantastic video that has now become the theme song to my life!

Admittedly, life has been a bit boring lately.  I’m 99.9% sure that we missed our window this month so this 2ww is just a bust.  I even gave up on charting my temps on FF, so that is really going no where as well.



No Smiley *edit* October 14, 2010

and that’s all I have to say about that….

So the plan is to say screw it and inseminate anyway! 



No more crosshairs – but no smiley either

So I double checked my temps on FF and found that I had put one day in twice!  There was a day I missed and I substituted another temp for it.  That did change my chart (no more crosshairs), but I still do not have a smiley.  Last Month I got my surge on CD 14 – today is CD 16.  Is it possible for ovulation to change a bit from month to month?

Hopefully I get my smiley today – I just may be crushed if we totally missed this cycle!   I can handle it not working, but to completely miss the cycle is unacceptable…


And we have crosshairs – FML October 12, 2010

Seriously?  NO + OPK and I have crosshairs 3 days ago and I JUST got my swimmers???

(-) Negative on OPK….WTF October 11, 2010

OK – I guess I can stop stressing?  I got a negative on my OPK just now, so I’m hopefully still ok…

We’ll see…

OK – I havent gotten a smiley, but I’m afraid I’ve ovulated already!!

I’m using FF now (like I said, another thing to obsess over) and I’m looking at my chart today.  Looks like my temp drop was on Saturday!  CD 11!  WHAT??  I don’t have cross hairs yet, but all I need is one more day of temps above 96.3 to confirm.  If this is true, my swimmers that are arriving today are USELESS and this month is a BUST!!

Seriously, I may just cry.  How I can possibly fuck up and send the swimmers late and/or ovulate early is beyond me.  My period is VERY regular….how does my ovulation occur at CD 16 one month and CD 11 the next??



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:
