Sam!!! I am so sorry you are going through all of this. I really hope an increased dosage of Clomid will do the trick for you. I agree with Reba - you aren't being whiny! Any one of us going through this would be venting away.

we really are here for you anytime!

Stupid hormones and crazy sleep schedule. I'm sitting outside a restaurant for my friend's duaghter's 18th birthday and I'm crying my eyes out. Just overwhelmed. I was up until 2 am with my husband because he was puking his guts out. I'm hormonal. God love me.

Okay. Waiting for my therapy appointment today.

Did I mention that husband is ill? I ended up rushing him to an urgent care 5 minutes before they closed yesterday because he wasn't any better. It's not his appendix, thankfully. Needless to say we haven't been BDing. which thankfully doesn't matter because I'm not ovulating. Not even close. Worse yet it seems like my cm is drying up.

My brother and parents arrive in Nashville tonight. Husband is too sick to travel with me so I guess I get to go be with family AGAIN without him. He never goes with me. It's not his fault that he is sick but I'm frustrated.

I'm so sorry that your DH is sick. I'm sorry that he can't go with you to visit your family. I would be frustrated, too, even though it's not his fault.

It's been a crazy weekend. I'm tired from travelling. I drove 4 hours to Nashville on Thursday night. Then I drove 4 hours home in the rain and dark Friday night.

Do you remember how I said I was housesitting at a spa? Oh yeah, baby. I'm here. I've got leftover birthday cake and a glass of wine.

Even though husband didn't feel like it and I'm not sure I'm ovulating I made us go ahead and DTD. So life for the moment is peaceful. I will be posting pics of this resort house in a little while.

First I am going to run to the local Kroger and grab shampoo and a couple of other personal hygeniene products. My house is only 30 minutes away and I plan to make daily trips home. It just seems easiest to keep a pair of all the "essential" shower products here thought.

OMG Pergola! That picture looks such a beautiful and peaceful and relaxing place. I am slightly jealous.

I am sorry, you sound like you've had a rough week. Hope things get better, I know there's not much you can do about the hormonal-ness... hope your DH is better, and I hope you pop out an egg soon! I didn't O on Clomid til late, and it was a higher dose... all is not lost! Don't give up hope! You will be so glad you BD'd if you end up O'ing late.

Adding this link http://imageshack.us/a/img59/9900/imageckd.jpg

Which shows my CB monitor from cd 21 last cycle (negative, low fertility) and a CB monitor strip from today below the Cd 21 test. Notice how the lh line is much darker.

You guyyyyys. I dipped a CB monitor stick this morning but LEFT IT on the counter when I rushed out the door to start the morning commute.

I'll be checking for cm in a bit today. It will be interesting to see if it does dry up for a day or two. I'm so nervous that his sperm didn't get there. But all I wanted this cycle was to ovulate. So it's a victory.

If you have a cake with candles for your birthday, you should wish for a BFP when you blow out the candles. I would. It can't hurt. I'm not above a little wishing.

Get ready for PICTURES of this BEAUTIFUL house I'm staying in for two weeks.



Koi pond with koi feeding. Normally pond is crystal clear but right now it has an algae blood going on.




Stairs going up.



Garden at top of stairs.



Fresh carrots for dinner.



They're also growing strawberries.



There's lettuce and boc choy in that photo. Rabbits keep eating lettuce. And I don't know how to cook boc choy. Anyone want some? I've got plenty!



Not a pretty picture but it's what asparagus stalks look like...well, after I've picked them.



They are growing blueberries. Just waiting for these guys to ripen.



Picture from atop the hill looking down to the back of the house.



The dog of the house.



Pretty flowers scattered everywhere.



More flowers and bushes blooming along the tiers.



Evening sunset past the honeysuckle climbing the trellace by the HOT TUB.

Anyone else know how to eat honeysuckle? It's only the most fun flower to learn how to eat. I gorged myself on the sweet nectar tonight while waiting for the sun to set.
