- We joke that in the beginning we were SOOOO picky. Like, "oh, his first cousin had acne, nope, sorry dude", or "his mom was big boned, that's not gonna work for me", and then once we were past the one year mark, and out of donor numero uno, we were still picky about the things that we both really wanted, like height, and that we really wanted fair hair and light eyes, etc. NOW I'm like, "well, he's asian, and about 4'11'', and evidently there is a lot of schizophrenia in the family, but LOOK AT THAT GPA!

Seriously, EVERY time I would be in the dressing room with something cutey, I'd be like, well, I'll be pregnant in the next two months, and this will CERTAINLY not fit, so I might as well wait. Two. Years. Later. I had no clothes. THEN I went out and spent a ridiculous amount of money on this FABULOUS pair of Rock & Republic jeans and thought FOR SURE Murphy's law was about to slap me in the face with like triplets or something to make sure I *never* squeezed myself into those jeans again... Not. So. Much. The only thing I still haven't purchased that I reeeeallly need? Bras. (and thanks for reading Escher
Ill TAKE some of that braces/pregnancy juju! Wonderful!AFM--
CD 6 *yawn* nothing much going on here. I'm on day 4 of my clomid, and so on and so on. I went ahead and scheduled my CD 12 u/s (11 fell on a Sunday) and the sperm is purchased and ready. I also scheduled an acupuncture appointment for that week. I was thinking back on what could have gone wrong last cycle, and I wonder if I was about to ovulate anyway when we triggered, and then since we waited until 24/36 hours post trigger, maybe I had already ovulated? (If you remember, my cervix was already super closed when we went in to insem) SO I'm very excited that we found a donor that had some ICI vials available, as we seem to have better luck with them, AND I'm thinking since I get to do a three vial insem, I may go ahead and insem the night of the trigger, then 24 hours out, then 36 hours out. What do yall think? **note: for some reason I never get a + OPK on Clomid months, so I'm going strictly by temp & u/s & past patterns**
Also, something I'm doing different this month that I haven't done before, I'm still drinking my one small (not giant I promise) cup of coffee in the morning, as it is my favorite moment of the day, and I had a cocktail last night. Normally I COMPLETELY cut out all alcohol & caffeine for the cycles we are trying, but I'm not this time. So. There. Universe.
Happy Tuesday Friends
