Lilypie Premature Baby tickers

Sunday, September 16, 2012


So I'm pretty sure I ovulated yesterday. I'm not 100% sure though. I never got a positive OPK, but this month I had to switch brands and learned that the ones I bought aren't as sensitive as the ones I was using before. I did have a temp rise this morning, but I also got up later than I usually do. Yesterday was CD18 so it would have been pretty typical of me to ovulate then. I usually ovulate around CD17-18. I don't know if Clomid made a difference this month. We did baby dance pretty much perfectly (1 day before and the day of ovulation). This month I used SoftCups again. I also have been taking B12 to help with my lining. I've also been taking my iron and multi-vitamins/prenatals. We couldn't have done things any more perfect. I know even with everything timed correctly there is only a 20-25% chance that we will get pregnant. I just wish it would happen already. I know I should be happy that I'm finally ovulating on my own. There are plenty of women out there that aren't that lucky. One of these days it will finally be my turn. I just wish that day would hurry up and get here already.

I really need something to finally work in my favor. I really need to get pregnant this go around or next month so I'll be ready for teaching jobs come next spring. I know it sounds ridiculous to be planning that far ahead, but I have to think about the future. I can't put my life on hold anymore waiting and hoping to be a mother. I just have to keep plugging away and know it will happen when it happens.


  1. after all this time if you do get pregnant why would you put the baby in daycare right away to go to work? dont you think you will want to be home with the baby?

  2. In a world where everything is perfect, yes. But unfortunately my world isn't made up of unicorns shitting rainbows. Money doesn't grow on trees and I'm not going to milk the government for money like so many people do so I will work. My husband just got out of the military and is a full time student. If I don't work then we don't have any money. Also, many years ago I set out on very precise, planned road. Infertility through a HUGE wrench into that. I can't help that it took me over 3 years to get pregnant. I set out to be a teacher. I never had any desire to be a stay at home mother. I love what I do. I love working with children and making a difference in lives. I'm not going to put that dream on hold either.

  3. I have more integrity than to live off of other people's hard earned money when I could get off my ass and go make money myself. Maybe I was just raised better than a lot of people.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
