Small Victories! (or I OVULATED!!!)

My body is finally working!!!

It is amazing what we can convince ourselves of when left to our own depressing thoughts. After this month's disappointing outcome - compounded by our inconveniently placed trip to Boston - we were sure that our last hope was to visit with the IVF folks. We were living in the doldrums of NoBabyEver-ville.

It turns out that the three months prior to this last try were likely a waste of money. While that may seem like bad news to many of you, those that have had some fertility issues know that isn't necessarily the case. See, I did actually ovulate this past cycle. Even though we're not pregnant - and even though it's severely disappointing - we are making some significant progress. NP says that based on this past month's evidence (BBT, CM, AF arrival date and so on), we ovulated. That also indicates that we weren't doing so before. Progress is something very significant here: I OVULATED!!!!

Next... we just need a baby!!

We're not sure yet if we're going to keep our appt at the clinic for tomorrow afternoon. It's expensive, and we're walking on sunshine with today's news....
