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 →

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. I think I'm hopeful because the acupuncture + supplements + diet changes have made clear positive changes for my cycle and that *must*... Continue Reading →

The Swim Meet

When La and I had our Big Gay Love Extravaganza Event (GLEE) in April 2012, we knew that we wanted our best friends there playing some significant roles, and we knew that we wanted our best friends in costume. Because that is how we roll. BFF and my best buddy served as our "Men of... 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. Due to a... Continue Reading →

Return from Paradise

We are back. If only everyone could spend a week in Cancun every time they have to wait to try again to make a baby. 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 →

One Down

Yesterday I was sitting in a meeting and my breasts were throbbing. As much as I have tried to stop paying attention to the minutia of my body, I couldn't help from noticing the throbbing. And I got excited. Because that's what we do, right? Look for throbbing breasts or extreme fatigue or maybe a... Continue Reading →

Holding out

I was planning not to post until after a full 14+ days had elapsed since ovulation. Why? Well, because there is nothing more obnoxious than listening to me try and spot symptoms when you and I both know that there are hardly ever symptoms to spot before an HPT is accurate. And now that I... Continue Reading →
