Day 18--A baby photo (or not)

Ok, just let me say that I live 4 hours away from my mom who has all of my baby pictures...so this one is a no go. So it is just going to be a random post.

D and I had a tough week last week. We have had a lot going on: sickness, busy with work, some family stuff, etc. Basically life has been happening to us and we didn't handle it the way I really wanted to. I was upset basically for a whole week. So finally we talked it out and everything is fine. In the midst of our talking it out, I begin to have this tremendous ovary pain, like doubling me over pain! I was chatting with some lovely ladies that told me I needed to take and OPK, so I did. Of course it is positive. Just let me say D and I were working out our disagreement, but I was not ready to "make-up" wink, wink, nudge, nudge. However, we are in our 10th cycle for trying for our miracle so I don't want to waste a perfectly +OPK. So we do what we need to do. This was our first experience with Pre-Seed, which we LOVED! We did get a little generous with it, a little goes a long way!

So as I was talking to D today on my way home from work today, he asks, "So when are we going to know if the other night worked or not?" How hysterical is that!? I explained that I was only 3 days past ovulation (DPO) and that I could test next week. He sounded a little disappointed that we had to wait that long. I go Monday to my gyno for a follow-up on my PCOS diagnosis and the meds they have put me on. So I am going to test even though I will only 9 DPO. This is really the first cycle that I have at least some hope. Before our timing really seemed to stink, you must have sex to make a baby, hahaha! So our (I really mean my) new motto is sex it up every other day from day 10 to whenever my body decides to ovulate, which varies from day 14-24. I might get tired of sex, but I know the end result is going to be worth it. This week with all sorts of people posting their pregnancy info on Facebook, The Bump, etc has made me really sad that I am not pregnant. I am really hoping it is my turn soon!
