Okay, the bad news is I'm not pregnant. The good news is that I did ovulate! Progesterone was 31. Last cycle it was only 8. Before the clomid, it was 4. Progress, right? Plus possibly another cycle after this since it actually worked! I'll take my good news where I can get it today. After all, waking up to cramps and my period pretty much ruined today.


I don't have my bloodwork back yet, but it doesn't matter anyway. Today is CD1. If you need me, I'll be the one in the corner with the bottle of wine.

Brief update

Yesterday was my bloodwork. I"ll find out sometime next week what the results were. This morning, I almost lost the contents of my stomache while brushing my teeth. I'm not really sure how to take that one as the last time I had that happen, I was pregnant. However, I wasn't pregnant for long. So I'm in 2WW hell. I'm over-analyzing every twinge, pain, or possible early pregnancy symptom and I don't even know if I actually ovulated this month or not! God, this sucks.

Closer to hope

This month is working out much better than last month. Both the husband and I are healthy. We're um, having fun with the trying. The last few days have brought different pains in the vicinity of my ovaries. Will this actually be the cycle for us? The 2ww will begin at the end of this week. Actually, my guess is it will begin in about 2 days. Bloodwork on Thursday the 11th. We'll see if this worked and if the side effects will have been worth it. At least the night sweats have subsided for the moment.

In other news of home, we adopted another dog this past weekend. This brings us to a grand total of 3. We now have a 12.5 year old bulldog, a 10 month old lab mix pup, and a 2ish year old sharpei / sheperd / hound mix. His name is Bruno. He's a sweetie and has taken to following me around the house. Being the good dog owner that I am, I still haven't taken any pictures. But then again, I forgot the camera on Christmas and have no pictures of the young'un other than the 2 on my phone from that day either.
