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
