Sub Par

So much for my overachieving ovaries of July. It figures that they would show up with a big, beautiful follicle on day 12 of the cycle when doing really any kind of insemination was nigh on impossible. I also think getting a chance at the camera had something to do with it. All about appearances,... Continue Reading →


Its CD13. No positive OPK yet. I'm not worried, but it would have been nice to ovulate on day 14 again, for a lot of reasons. The biggest being that BFF is taking tomorrow off to move and would have had the day open to run around leaving his sperm sample at wheverthehell he will... Continue Reading →

Bits ‘n’ Pieces

Ugh. You guys, I'm really sorry that I have been such a moody mary lately. I don't like being a crankisaurus rex, I really don't. I'm glad I've let myself feel all the feelings but I can only imagine that you all are getting bored with my tedious melancholy. So, sorry.There isn't a whole lot... Continue Reading →

Welp. Its CD5 of the first IUI cycle. I'm having a lot of feelings. I think I'm excited, because I think this is ultimately a better shot than we have had before.

This period has come gently, and for that I am grateful. Long shot or not, the grief of another cycle gone takes... Continue Reading →

All that we let in

Today I am unbearably cranky, bitter, anxious, sad. I both have no good reason and very good reasons to feel this way. In any case, I don't like that I feel this way. I do have a sneaking suspicion  very clear idea that my malaise is being amplified by having forgot my celexa at home... Continue Reading →

Probably Maybe

Hello from Greenville, South Carolina. For a girl born and raised in the semi-arid climes of Colorado, I feel absolutely soaked in sweat and humidity down here. From what I understand, it is "not humid" here. Relativity. Whoa.Its looking like there will NOT be an IUI this month. I'm (maybe surprisingly) not that bummed about... Continue Reading →
