I feel like I haven’t written about TTC in forever, but it’s mostly because I’m trying not to get my hopes up (or down) too much this cycle. It’s a huge relief to me to finally be doing something about this anovulatory crapola, and I knew that the chances of the low dosage of Clomid working weren’t great, but I was still hoping & praying for an ovulation this cycle.
So far, no luck.
I’m on CD 26 and no spike in temps, no awesome fertily quality cervical fluid, nothing. *sigh*
I know that it could still happen this cycle, but it’s not likely. Now I’m trying to decide if I should start provera on CD35 or CD42 or just wait and see what my body does. It’s complicated more by the fact that I’ll be out of the country from May 8-19th, and I do not want to take a chance of me ovulating while away from my husband. No way, no how. We’ve worked way too hard at this sex every-other-day thing to miss it now.
Speaking of that, it was HARD in the beginning (and by hard, I mean difficult, for you gutter minds out there)…. very hard to do it every other day. Something about the planning it out and being required to do it…just takes all the fun out of it. Neither of us was in the mood. Neither of us wanted to. We actually had fights about it b/c he was tired and didn’t want to, and I wasn’t taking any excuses. Yes, I was the Nazi sex girl.
A pleasant surprise though, we’ve had sex more times in the past month than we have in…well, years! Twelve times this cycle so far, and sometime in the last couple of weeks, it got FUN. We started connecting more. The intimacy is better. The emotions are better. It’s just been a healthy thing all around for us to do this. I like it. 🙂
We might not get a baby out of this cycle, but we have reconnected as a couple, and that’s a good thing.
