OK who gave my Doc the germs that made her sick?
I have been rescheduled! I made the appointment 3 months ago, and I am ready already!
Now I have to wait until Wed to see if we can make some baby-making progress.

Hi ho, hi ho

It's off to the doctor I go! I am armed with 7 months of charts that prove that my ovaries suck. Somehow I feel like I am going to have to defend the fact that I need drugs to jump start this process. It think it is because when I went in for my last GYN visit and told them I was planning to get preg, the only counseling I got was "take a vitamin". Oh hell no.
If the doc tomorrow says that to me, I am shoving the speculum up her nose.

I will let you know how that works out.

Calling for backup

I knew it was too much to ask to start the year off with a normal cycle. I am on day 33 and no egg yet. I have run out of ovulation predictor tests and can't bring myself to buy more at this point. I have a Dr's appointment next Monday and am actually excited about it. I am sure that I am the only woman on the planet who is actually excited to go to the GYN, but I am hoping she can help jump start this baby making process. I have been good for 7 months, followed all the rules, tried eastern medicine and now I am calling for reinforcements! Bring on the Western meds! I am cool with blood tests and am in support of pharmaceuticals. We shall see what the doc has to say.

very tricky...

Every women knows the rule of a pregnancy test from the time she starts having sex, right?
One line = negative
Two lines = positve

So when it comes to an ovulation predictor test you would think that the same rules apply, right? Wrong!

I am on day 20 something and hoping that all the vacation and relaxation would help me get into a normal cycle, so I took an ovulation prediction test to see if maybe it was coming sometime soon. I was SO excited that I got 2 lines! Now, one was light and the control was dark, but at this point I will take what I can get. I was super happy all day, thinking this was going to be a good month.

The next day, I read the instructions...
There are always 2 lines. A faint line= negative, a dark line= positve. HUH?
I know I should have read the directions before, but who is mean enough to do that to a woman. I know the rules! You do not mess with a TTC woman and show her 2 lines unless you mean "positive".

I bet that test was designed by a man.

The real story...

Vacation was GREAT!!! I had the best time sailing around an island paradise and pretending I was 21 again. I will post pics and the censored version of the story on Married Life, but there is more to the story.
Tequila is bad, very bad. It made me do things like jump off a pirate ship/bar. Doesn't sounds so bad, right? Well..... you got a t-shirt if you jumped off sans-swimsuit. I won't say whether or not I brought home a t-shirt, but let me just say again that tequila is VERY BAD.

There was also the crazy New Years party that also featutred Mr Cuervo. There was no jumping off of structures, but we had a fun time!

There was lots of fish viewing, sunbathing, and beach combing in between the alcohol induced evenings. If the method of celebrating the New Year is any indication of the year to come, 2006 is going to be a VERY, VERY good one!!
