Happy ICLW!

This is my first month participating in ICLW (International Comment Leaving Week, or IComLeavWe if you’re nasty.), and so far it has been an eye-opening experience.

First of all, I literally had no idea that so many infertility blogs existed.  It makes me sad and angry and warm and fuzzy all at the same time.

And second, I am learning so much about the different paths available to women with fertility issues.  By the time my appointment with the RE rolls around in June, I should be the most educated patient they’ve ever had.

Doctors love that.  Right?

So, if you’re visiting me for the first time–Welcome!  And thank you for stopping by!  I hope you find something you like that brings you back again soon.

If this isn’t your first visit, then you know the drill:  TMI, snark, over-punctuation, and too many ellipses…

Happy Commenting!  🙂

Whatever. I’m Getting Cheese Fries.

April 21st, 2011.  CD26.

Well, my temp did rise this morning, but not by an impressive amount.  I guess my Ob-Gyn was right–I do have a weak natural ovulation.

I’ve been wondering why that is a lot lately.  I think that’s why I started reading about PCOS.  Now, I know I’ve said in the past that self-diagnosing is not the way to handle things, but it’s tough to sit patiently and wait for my appointment with the fertility clinic in June.  Maybe if we don’t call it “Google Diagnosis” and refer to it as something like “educating myself on the possibilities”, it will all sound less crazy.

Who’s in favor of less crazy?

Oooh, ooh–ME!

Meet My Ovaries: Cheech and Chong

April 20th, 2011.  CD25.

I haven’t really named my ovaries, of course, but I assume that they must be friends of Mary Jane since they conveniently chose today–4/20, famous for being the unofficial pot smoker’s Christmas–to function properly.

I finally got a positive OPK late last night, and again early this morning.

Tonight?  Negative.

I guess that’s that then, isn’t it?

I’m expecting a temp spike tomorrow to confirm ovulation, of course, but I feel safely comfortable saying that I am now officially in the Two Week Ten Day Wait.

Also, I just wanted to point out that infertility is ruining Easter for me.  All of the egg imagery is making me bitter, and not even fondant-filled chocolate eggs are making it better.  And I can no longer eat a Peep because they make me think of squishy little pre-babies, which is just tragic and demented.

Thanks a bunch, infertility, for taking candy away from me too.  Why don’t you go ahead and ruin oxygen next?  You suck.

Pass the jelly beans.

Details Within

April 18th, 2011.  CD23.

Still no ovulation.  I think my ovaries hate me.  I know my wallet does, because springing for two boxes of OPK’s in one month is a bit excessive, even for me.

So there’s that.

Also, I have a new Adventures in Baby Making post up over at The Fertility Blogs.  It’s about ketchup. Really.

Okay, well part of it is about ketchup.

I hope this photo used in the post wasn’t misleading:

Also, fun factoid for the day:  Did you know that Heinz Ketchup has a custom label program?

Now they tell me!  I would have totally rethought the theme of my wedding if I had known this three years ago…

Ode to the Phys Ed Teacher

I grew up in a small town.  (Can’t you just hear the Mellencamp in the background?)  It was the kind of place where every home has four cars:  two to drive, and two for the dogs to live in. Really though, it was tiny.  There are high schools that have populations twice as large as

Updates and Such

April 14th, 2011.  CD19. Hello friends! Who wants some updates? Okay, well you’re getting them anyway, so deal with it. First, I have a new column post up over at The Fertility Blogs, titled Confessions of a TV Junkie:  LOST and Infertility.  I know you’re not surprised that I would make this leap.  I am

“Out”

I think I just officially “outed” myself as an Infertile on my personal Facebook page. It’s a little nerve-wracking, but freeing at the same time… The status update that’s been floating around Twitter really got me, and I couldn’t help but throw it up on my own page, too. “Infertility is a heart-wrenching, faith-questioning, relationship-testing,

What to Expect: When You’re Expecting to Expect

When I got married a little over two years ago, I never expected that I would be here–a veritable science experiment of a woman, working my little fingers to the bone trying to get pregnant, and burdening the world with my tragic woes via the internet. I also had no idea that I’d probably been
