Well went to the doc today to check on my ovaries. There is no cysts this month--which is very good news. I still have the poly-cyst thing going--but there is no large one that will confuse us later when we are looking for a follicle. So now we wait for the ovulation test to say I am at peak and we try again. Will be at least 8 more days before that. In the meantime, I have work things to focus on. I go before a committee for consultation about my process in the training to be a supervisor program on Monday in South Carolina. Tuesday will be celebrating the New Year with Diana in synagogue--which is very cool service. And then late in the week insemination time. So I have a busy week coming up and in between will clean house, yard, and paint more too. Busy, busy. I will also enjoy some wine! But not whine! :)

Well, I waited to be sure but the verdict is in very clear--not pregnant. My period did start today and the urine tests before all said nope. So I was upset over the weekend and took yesterday off from work--called it a mental health day--and feel much better now. I actually feel more optimistic about future tries and believe I will get pregnant soon. So I will finish painting our bedroom, which I started and didn't finish the trim from last summer. And I will enjoy a little wine and diet soda for another two weeks. .......On a totally different subject. I must say we love the new Showtime show--"Weeds"--so funny. I will miss Queer as Folk and 6 Feet Under. But love the line-up on Showtime. Huff, Weeds, L Word--are all great! I am also giving House a try and will try the Commander In Chief to see what that is like too. I love to see what a woman in office might be like and I love Donald Sutherland as well.....But with the cooler weather coming this weekend--I will love being outside and doing yard work and not worrying about passing out from the heat and humidity. :)

Well, I didn't get pregnant last month. It was harder than we expected to hear that news and we have been less excited about this month's try since we hated the big let down. This month brought interesting twists as I had a cyst in the beginning and we weren't sure if was the cyst still or a new follicle that showed up in the ultrasound when it was time to inseminate. We hoped for the best and inseminated that one day. We came back the next day and did another ultrasound to see if the "circle" was still there. If it was in the same place, then we won't inseminate and we would continue to believe it was the cyst--which would complicate my process a lot. We were lucky, it was gone and we are assumed it was a follicle and we tried insemination again on that day. So....now we wait. I can't tell much since the hormones they put me on to build up the lining in my uterus causes similar side effects as pregnancy brings on--if what I feel is from the pills or from a developing baby. I sure am crabby and have some mood swings this time. Less gas, which I am happy about. It is weird to get excited about feeling nauseous in the middle of a meeting or walking through the food area at work! Other not so disconnected news, Diana and I bought a new mattress for our bed. I felt like my back hurt every morning for a while now. So we took the plunge and bought a mattress. Boy are they expensive. I also figure we will need it with us both trying to get pregnant for the next couple of years. It is so comfortable--now I am going to really hate working overnight at the hospital and sleeping on the lumpy couch! Oh well...I will let you know next week whether the test shows we are pregnant or not. If "No", then we will try again with me and see what happens. Keep those prayers and well wishes coming.
