Not the post I wanted to write

Ugh. I have really been wanting to post my experience from last Tuesday/Wednesday, when La and I went and got civil union #42 in the state of Colorado. It was magical and kind of overwhelming, and I really want to do it justice. I write the Spirituality and Religion feature for our local GLBT rag... Continue Reading →

The Sweet Spot

Well, it's CD12, try #4. Hope has bloomed again because how can it not? Another precipice of waiting - this is where the sweet spot is. There are good things, here in this moment: I got a really new, fabulous haircut. I have been rocking a modification of the same cut for a while now... Continue Reading →

Looking down.

The night before we take a pregnancy test is the most conflicted I ever feel in this process. The waves of hope and misery, doubt and possibility wash over me in a sickening torrent. It's a precipice I simultaneously want to jump from immediately and stand on the edge of forever. Bon chance.

1DPO. I guess.

I'm not willing to make proclamations on anything related to my junk anymore, but signs are pointing to ovulation yesterday (a + OPK on Monday, eggwhite cervical fluid M-W and a temp rise today) so I'm gonna go ahead and call it. Its been a helluva week and honestly, making babies has been the last... Continue Reading →

8DPO: Potential Dinosaur Sightings

8DPO. Going on my 5th day of pretty consistent nausea. Added to this (or perhaps just adding nuance): Food aversions/cravings/something. I say it this way because more than craving anything or being particularly averse to anything, its just a struggle to find anything that sounds *good* or even something that won't make me vomit. On... Continue Reading →

Win-Win!

I'm on CD30, no bleeding yet. Hoping I hold out until Thursday which would mean a nice, long, cozy luteal phase and make this cycle the best (tracked) one yet. In any case, we should be inseminating in two weeks - whether we are at the start or the end is the only difference. La... Continue Reading →

The Baby Avalanche has begun!

At 12:19pm, mountain time, one of my colleagues delivered her 6lb9oz baby girl, who is nicknamed Lou (which I tell you because I LOVE it) Lou is the first of what will end up being a virtual landslide of babies to come in the next few months. After Lou, there is the baby that is... Continue Reading →

Well, sh*t.

The last few days have been somewhat trying on the baby making front. . .which is funny, since we still aren't yet trying to make a baby, technically. Har har har. On Saturday afternoon, after too few hours of post roadtrip sleep, La and I went to pick up Eliot and Ed, our two older... Continue Reading →
