May ICLW

Happy May ICLW! 

Welcome to all the newbies and hello again to all my regulars!

If you are new and want to read all about our journey you can find all that info in the tabs at the top of my page under "How we got here" and " TTC time line".

Currently, we are trying naturally. I am CD 12 today and I am having some ovulation pains. I think.
I have been testing the OPKs since CD 7 and so far we are negative. The problem with me starting to test too early is that I get very impatient... hence the screen name! ;-)

I am looking forward to hearing from you and I am excited to find new blogs to follow!

Wishing lots of baby dust to all!!


Before I leave you I want to mention a few things... 

First- Amber at Old Lady No Baby is gearing up for a FET on Friday- stop by and send her some baby vibes! I am so hopeful for her. Amber has become a dear friend to me and she really deserves to get her take home baby; not to mention a softball championship!

Second- Please swing by Its Jennifer Juniper and show some love and support. Jennifer is new to the blogging world and is struggling with infertility. She has not been diagnosed yet, but she thinks she suffers from PCOS. I know she would appreciate any advice, support or love you are willing to give!

Third- Not Pregnant and Pissed had a blog review written about the performance she was apart of this last weekend. It looks and sounds awesome! Check it out! 

Lastly- My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma. I am thinking of you all

  1. I'm CD1 as of today and already want to test with OPKs. Lol. I will need a whole bunch to get me through this month because I do not want to miss the surge. I hope I get another positive :-). Good luck to you on your surge search.

  3. Regular viewer, but back doing the ICLW thing this month. Is this an IUI or TI cycle for you? Hope it goes well!

    1. Hey hey! Hope you are well, I just finished reading your post on your blog!

      We are doing good old TI this cycle... if I ovulate. We won't be back to the RE until next year when we face IVF. I am hoping for a miracle!

    Thanks for mentioning my blog lady! I appreciate it. I'm hoping you get a positive on your opk soon! What is the window you usually get a positive? I can get one anywhere from cd13 to cd18!

    1. You bet! I wish I was there to see the show! What a great review!

      Well, OPKs and I don't mix well without fertility meds... so I don't really know if I will get a surge without them. I say I typically O around cycle days 16-21 It is quite a window. We look forward to the 2ww so we dont have to BD! LOL! Horrible.

  16. Last month when we were trying on our own, I waited to start testing until CD13 because on my own I have long cycles. Then I got my period on CD24. I have no idea when I ovulated...I totally missed it! It's better to start early. :) Good luck trying on your own this month!
