Not pregnant, but stuck in the 2-week wait

Some months, you just know you’re not pregnant. The combination of our recent house move, a week long business trip out of town during the week to conceive and a longer commuter has meant that, well, I’ve called the tired card too many times. To be fair, so did he. And that’s just what life…

A belated thank you to my employer, seriously!

I’ve mentioned my first miscarriage before, I know. But what I realized today is that I didn’t mention how fantastic my employer was at the time. And, technically, I’m not even employed by them. You see, I’m a full-time contractor to my biggest, and currently only, client. That means that while on the surface of…

It’s always darkest just before the dawn

This week has been a week of a lot of birthdays. By birthdays I actually mean BIRTH days. A colleague’s wife gave birth to a beautiful little girl who I met yesterday, and is perfection personified.

POAS, my old friend, good to see you again!

When we rented our home just 11 days ago I remember thinking, way in the back of my mind, that while the move would be hectic, chaotic and require a speed that would be superhuman it would be a very handy distraction from the monthly watch that I so desperately try to avoid. The idea…

Without wanting to a make a whole song and dance about it, we are currently trying to rent our home so that we can try living somewhere new. This is despite loving our neighbors and neighborhood, of course, and is because we are creatures who grow moss if we stay in one spot too long….

Breakings news on ovulation ’09

Ok, not breaking news. Not interesting news. But news in the sense that it is, well, new. I finally had a conversation with my doctor’s office about the blood test last week. The following is a near-enough accurate representation of the conversation: Me: Hi, I’m calling for the blood test results from my blood test last Wednesday…

Is a mini-moo in my future?

“Let’s get this over with” is never the best sentence to hear before trying to make a baby.  I am hoping the pessimism didn’t affect our chances.  Apparently, baby making was interrupting hockey and basketball.  Why can’t my calendar and his sports games get along?  I think it is because he likes all of them. …

Blah blah ovulation tests blah blah sex book blah blah

Today marked the last of the 7 ovulation tests I had bought last week. Now the pregnancy test sits on its own, literally waiting in hope.  Ok, kinda, but not really. Of course, it would be out of this world to be pregnant, but I’m feeling like this isn’t it. With the wacky start to…
