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.

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 →

Aaaand . . .we’re back

La and I pulled into our gravel driveway at 3am this morning, after the 17 hour adventure through Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Kansas. This is our third year driving back for Xmas and either we are getting used to it or the civic can haul ass because it hardly felt like the torturous process it... Continue Reading →

I am on day 32 of my cycle and based on the positive OPKs and thermal shifts, I'm about 5 days post ovulation. This means my cycle is likely to end up being about 40 days long. Whaaaaat? I am *shockingly* not that freaked out about this. Partially that's because I have been very intentional... Continue Reading →

And the blood gushed forth

And the blood flowed forth from my loins once more.I haven't been this excited to get my period since I was 10 and ALL my friends already had theirs and I was still waiting. Its a little odd, as well, since usually in this trying to conceive business, bleeding is not a welcome sight. But... Continue Reading →
