Overachieving ovum and subpar spermatazoa

The results came back from BFFs repeat semen analysis: 4% normal morphology,  up from 2% in July.  This is,  add I anticipated,  a very marginal and pretty much inconsequential improvement.  Normal morphology is 14%. La and I were hoping for something like 8 or 10. 4% just feels.  . . Unfair. So we will be... Continue Reading →

Bust.

Its been a helluva week. Today is cycle day 22, still no positive OPK. After the almost-the-same test on Tuesday morning, I got almost no line at all on Tuesday evening. Wednesday morning I got another dark-but-not-positive and then . . .of course, no line Wednesday night. My cervical fluid has followed a similar, although... Continue Reading →

Doctor’s Orders

And so begins, possibly, a new era of the baby making saga. Yesterday we went and saw a "full spectrum OB-GYN" Practice (ie: an OB/GYN who does some fertility work as well) who had been recommended to us by a lesbian couple who are also trying to conceive using a known donor.

It really is an excellent way to stop thinking about the minutiae of getting pregnant and just really exist in the moment. I vote free beach vacays for all people... Continue Reading →

After two weeks of feeling embarrassingly obsessed with the possibility of being pregnant, I am happy to return to a state of mind which includes more coherent and complex thoughts than "omigodwhatwasthattwingeinmybelly? whatdiesitmean?!" My type A personality keeps me productive at work, but once I was home for the day, it was no holds barred.... Continue Reading →

A few more details

Well, I hate to leave you all hanging (I'm a sucker for context) so I thought I'd provide a quick but more detailed update. Despite still no positive OPKs, we did our first insemination last night. BFF's car broke down and he asked La to pick him up from his teaching gig, and suggested we... Continue Reading →

It's a good week here at the Gayby Project. On Wednesday, La and I went to our first couples counseling appointment in preparation for making, birthing and raising a child together. The counselor is fabulous - just enough woo woo but not over the top - and it affirmed for me that La and I... Continue Reading →
