>Well we did 4 inseminations this month with the final one being on Sunday. My temp has now a started to rise and I expect to get my cross hairs soon. I feel really good about this cycle!
Today I go and pick up our new car! We bought a 5 door car sort of in prep for a baby. Once we are pregnant we would never justify spending that amount of money on something when I am about to stop working….but at this stage we can! So we did! It will be a lot easier with 5 doors and a baby.
SO last night we had arranged for J to come around again and leave us a little pot and I peed on a little stick to see where I was at and it came out positive. I had done them the previous 2 days and they were negative so I was confident that this was a *real* positive rather than a PCOS positive. So that made me happy although I was confused why the fertility monitor had not given me an highs this month. We inseminated last night and all was well, a nice large dose!
This morning my monitor jumped from low to peak in one jump! I was just happy it had detected something at all! So we also inseminated this afternoon as well. We may do another one tomorrow for good luck although it may be too late, but seeing as how we didn’t get pregnant last month and we didn’t do any insemination on the 2nd peak day, I think it would be a good thing to do just in case.
I have felt happy all day and really calm about this cycle, I didn’t even freak out about the now high days! I am glad I went on my instincts when I saw eggwhite cervial mucus and started inseminating.
Now I just need to see a temp rise and we will be in our 2WW 🙂
>I still got a ‘low’ on my monitor this morning but I am producing fertile mucus so J is here now and we are going to inseminate this evening.
I have just peed on an OPK so as to compare them over the next few days. I just don’t feel comfortable relying solely on one thing such as the monitor to know when things are happening.
Here is my chart so far this month:
>Still on a low this morning! Waiting to ovulate…….*impatient*
We are going to the theatre this evening to see seven brides for seven brothers which will keep my mind occupied!
In other news, we bought a new car yesterday with 5 doors and a bigger engine in preparation for putting babies in the back! Didn’t fancy the idea of putting kids in the back of a 3 door. However it was tres expensive and now we have no money again and a little bit of debt to add to that! Time to build the funds up again with some rock hard saving!
So it is Sunday today and I still got a low on my fertility monitor which is a good thing really as it meant that our weekend was not disrupted by leaping back to Sheffield for inseminations.
It does mean that this cycle will be longer than the last one though….which I find annoying. My period was longer though…..which could account for that I guess.
My brother had a great birthday, and on our way home we stopped at the seaside and met up with old friends and excitedly told them about our attempts.
