Before I forget about it, Rachelle, it is good that you are charting because maybe you have a short LP, which while it can certainly be a problem with getting pregnant is fairly fixable (I think!) For those of us with 28 day cycles though, charting is likely the only way to find that out, I too have a straight up 28 day cycle, so naturally I just assume that I ovulate on day 14! (which I actually do seem to do) I have not yet begun my charting, the doctor said it likely wouldn't tell me anything until after 1 normal period anyway--and since we're planning on using it more as a birth control thing (for now) I'm not really sure what we're going to do for birth control in the interum, I'd really just like to be totally sure of my cycles and just abstain during ovulation--that said I tend to have a definite jump in sex drive at that time, so I may change my mind half way through. I hate condoms , the Ob figured I'd likely hate a diaphram as well (and it takes about 7 weeks apparently to get one!) and she said with the problems after my d&c, she absolutley doesn't want to insert an IUD (I don't want that either) so that leaves us with condoms or our more likely method of "Pull and Pray"
Korin, loved the song! I showed it to Steve and he got out his guitar and started singing--it was truly the hardest I've laughed in weeks!
Jesse, I'm also all for you and proud to be a Canadian!! I do find it mind boggling that goverment has any say at all in marriage, we were blown away when we found out it would cost us $175 for our marriage licence!! Just what will the goverment be doing for us in exchange for that money????? It costs less for a driving licence!!!!! At least they test us for that--they don't even care if we're in love for a marriage licence!! There is actually another lesbian couple on the Sept pregnancy thread and I was shocked to find out that her partner (I don't know if they are married) has to formally adopt their child--and go through the whole approval process!!! I think that's disgusting! Do you have to do that here in Canada?
Adina, good luck with the new treatments! I still think your cycle is screwed up this time because sperm met egg last time. Here's to them meeting again really soon!
Well all, I'm off now for a haircut (way overdue) and later for a 90 minute massage, I figure I deserve it!
