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. 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 →

A little something

I am so very glad to be back in Denver, where things run my speed and things are only occasionally visually overwhelming, where my dogs cuddle on my feet, where there is more quiet than not, where the best things are not for sale, where my home and life and beautiful partner all reside. Which... Continue Reading →

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 →

Lemonade

The things that are keeping me hopeful right now: A ¬†totally unremarkable perfectly uneventful cycle last month. Downside of uneventful= not pregnant; upside of uneventful = a 32 day cycle, ovulation clearly happening on day 17, a 14 day luteal phase. In short, typical and healthy and not at all confounding. Bleeding again, because it... Continue Reading →

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 →

The eternal wait

I'm not really sure what's happening, but I feel like some sort of explanation is needed. For myself, more than anything . . .and because all of you have been so kind and I have maybe been a drama queen and I don't want to take advantage of that kindness. So here's the latest: After...
