Sabby, you know it's early...did you ever get a +opk? Looks like you stopped taking them, which I don't blame you for doing if you did. Give it another few days and poas again, I say. Do you get sore boobs every month?
Aqua, I LOL about the time thing, too. I was on such a "life schedule" with my parents (although they were very uninvolved working parents), that now I am retaliating from the norm....the norm being the stupid little track that everyone is supposed to be on, as mandated by the private school I attended all my life that I hated. Sabby is totally right, life takes on its own shape and the sooner you realize that YOU are the one who makes up your own "schedule" for things, if you even decide to make one, the sooner you feel better about everything. I say that partly in convincing myself, because although I know that is true, I am admittedly bad at thinking things have to go along a track, albeit one I recently made up.....mostly having to do with me being almost 35 and wanting to not be an old mom and have a high risk pregnancy. So, did you quit the accup?
Medic, you're getting there, just chalk it up to the Clomid making you O late, of course. Yea, I am not surprised that my insurance doesn't cover infertility....I told my dr that and being the awesome dr that she is, she was fudging my diagnosis to annovulatory, but I still have a $2,000 out of pocket that I haven't put one dollar towards yet this year, so I would really be paying out of pocket for the whole thing. My dr said it's no big deal, we'll just do all the other ones that are cheap (sperm is only $62), give it another couple of months, and then in January, if nothing, I'll start the Clomid.
OK, random rant/vent/blah.....I was up late last night making Thanksgiving feast food and cookies and all (DH was out of town yesterday), and I suddenly got all sad because I suddenly started thinking about how I wish I didn't work and could make that stuff at my leisure instead of having to work, then race to the store, then race home and make dinner and then stay up till midnight making this stuff, which I usually pass on doing except that my girls were begging me to make stuff. Now, I like working, but I ALSO loved being a SAHM back pre-divorce, even though I hated my ex-h and was miserable......so, I think I was just being a baby because DH wasn't there to help, and he normally does, but it started me thinking about when we have a baby. I realized that I totally want to stay home for a year....I am so sappy and I freak about silly things, especially when I feel like I am shortchanging my kids for some reason (reason is always work). Which, to our credit, we are awesome parents, but I think I just have guilt from getting divorced and making their lives harder, even though they are ok with it all. Ugh. Anyway, neither of us make a lot (we work in the arts, of course), so I have think feeling that I need to have a talk with him about how we can manage to get by with me potentially not working for a year or so. I have voiced concerns about how we would "do" it before, but we just decided to not worry about it and go with the flow and just get pg first. Anyone had/have a similar situation? I'm just trying to figure out how to broach this subject.......or at least feel better about juggling, etc.
