Cycle 26

Since this is the first time I've had a cycle where we've gotten a chance to try this year, I feel like it's just gotta work. I'm doing all I know to do to help: clomid, prometrium, preseed, etc and Josh is taking fertility blend vitamins and has switched to boxers instead of boxer briefs. I really don't know what else to do.

Another thought occurred to me today. Josh and I had been hoping to have at least 2 kids while he was on shore duty where he wasn't supposed to deploy anywhere. That way we could try and he'd be here for the births and such. In about 18 months, he will probably be back to sea duty which means he'll be gone a lot again and it will be really hard to actually try. 18 months--barely a chance for 2 pregnancies and that's only if I get KU this cycle and the cycle immediately after I deliver. So yeah, no real chance. As much as I'm hoping this cycle works, I really doubt it will. I'm thinking I'll be lucky if I get one baby out of this tour. But then again, I do hear of a lot of women who have deployment babies (where they get preg while hubbies are on leave from long deployments). So who knows??!!

good news, bad news

Well, great news actually. Josh is coming home tonight!!!!! As long as his flights don't get cancelled :-/ I am so freakin excited. The house won't be as clean as I wanted it to be when he got here, but he probably won't even notice till tomorrow cause we'll be pretty busy for a while ;)

The not so great news is that I'm pretty sure I O'd a few days ago. My schedule has been really off this week, so my chart's not that accurate. But my CM has dried up and my nipples are sore, even more so since I keep pinching them to see just how tender they are. Oh well, this gives him another month of using Fertility Blend vitamins to help improve his count. Between those and the switch to boxers from boxer briefs (finally!), I'm hoping his count goes up significantly. I'm going to talk to my doc about getting another S/A and a referral to a urologist.

Bad weather

We had major thunderstorms with thunder, lightning, and hail early this morning. There was also a lot of wind. We've still got a lot of wind today. Around midnight the tornado sirens started going off. I think the storms passed right over San Angelo. About 5 or 6 miles away from our house, a couple cars and a tractor trailer were turned over. Someone who lives on my side of town said she lost some shingles from her roof. Another girl who lives about five streets over lost half her fence. I'm not sure if the tornado actually touched down anywhere, but we did have the strong winds from it.

how fun

I'm stealing this from Nancy who was going to steal it from someone else. It looked like fun so I thought I'd try it.

Totally crazy

"A group of third-graders plotted to attack their teacher, bringing a broken steak knife, handcuffs, duct tape and other items for the job and assigning children tasks including covering the windows and cleaning up afterward"

St. Jude fundraiser

My Tae-kwon Do school is sponsoring a board breaking fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Hospital. We are asking for donations that go directly to the hospital. I'm going to try to see if I can set up some type of online giving thing. But until then, if you would like to help us out, you can send it along with your name, address and phone number to me ( through PayPal. Thanks for any and all support.

till Josh comes home!!! I can't wait.
