In a TWW!

Here's where we're at right now: I'M IN A TWO WEEK WAIT!
The Clomid that I took this cycle? Well, it looks like it made these stubborn ovaries wake up! I was stressing out as day 14 came and went with no signs at all, but a few days later I got a positive ovulation test! The following day, I got a peak on the Clearblue Fertility Monitor - and crosshairs appeared a few days later. Here's my chart:
Hubby left to go overseas the day after I 'ovulated' - so the timing was JUST right. It probably means nothing, and our chances of a natural conception are slim to none {me ovulating is just part of the package deal of our infertility} but it feels so lovely to have at least a normal looking chart. It'll be interesting to see what day my period shows up, as I don't know what's normal for me, not having periods naturally very often.

Even though I'm mentally preparing for a negative and for AF to arrive, I'm secretly still hopeful. It's a big old tease, the hope: it just dangles the idea of a miracle pregnancy in front of your nose and waves it slightly every time you decide to give up. A good friend of mine, who has recently become pregnant with her own long-awaited miracle baby, told me that 'hope is what keeps our insides churning' - and she's right. It's there, and it's making the days go by faster; especially when hubby is away and I'm on solo parenting duties.

And you know, even if it's a negative - I'll be sad, but I'll be okay. It's a little like the pregnancy announcements that I've been drowning in for the past few months - it hurts, but it calms down. Either way, hopefully in a few short weeks, I'll be able to start my frozen cycle & get the ball rolling.*

*Even still - oh man, please please please keep your fingers and toes crossed for me!

Oh lovely Mama!! We were so lucky with our first little lady, and as we are trying for #2, my anxiety is so high. Thinking positive baby thoughts for you!!! Georgia and your next little bundle (frozen or not) is so lucky. I hope to have an ounce of your grace on this journey!

we're considering trying for baby #2, but fear of dealing with all of those infertility ups and downs again is so scary. thanks for being brave and please send some extra courage my way!

fingers crossed your baby journey is much easier this time around.
