a journey to familyhood

coming together!

I feel like things are starting to come together in a way that instead of being excited to go through the motions, I’m actually excited that this actually might work.
I got an email from the nurse today that they’re going to give me trigger shots. Ooooh i jumped up and down. She was going back and forth on whether she would or not or send me to an re, whatever, i would have gone, but i really didn’t want another dr and waiting another cycle or longer.
So, i reeeeally feel like cd 1 is coming soonish. I’ll take Clomid cd 3-7. Cd 12 I’ll go to the clinic for 2 shots in the ass. 36 hours later we’ll inseminate.
All of this should happen before I’m gone to my work conference. I just won’t be a drunken fool!
Idk how it’s going to work out, of course, but I’m excited that it feels more and more like we’re stacking the deck in our favor.
I’ve been so anxious about getting timing wrong, and i really didn’t think they’d give me the shots, but now I’m super psyched.
Also, I’ve gone to the gym 2 days and swimming on the third. I’m happy with that! Gym is 10/month, so so far this month it’s been $5/trip. I think going ten times in a month would be the threshold, $1 to go to the gym? I’d pay that! Of course going more is obviously better, but as long as we’re going I’m happy. Also i maxed out the storage on my music player and have more than one gym mix, yet sometimes there’s just nothing to listen to! Yesterday was The Used and Panic! at the Disco

About Me

For reasons unknown, which make me want to punch WordPress in the face, my About section has gone away more than once, so ill just cross post it in a post and that can be good enough for if it disappears again! Also I think my cat is giving me the stink eye. What’s your problem, bro? Don’t worry, I never promise to have a very strong attention span.


Hello…I’m a twenty something midwest girl with an amazing twenty something midwest girlfriend who just wants a family. That’s not true,I have a family. I have my beautiful girl and we have too many cats and foster cats and a beautiful home. What I’m really after in life these days is a baby. And an English Bulldog puppy! And a Mtn Dew! Oh yeah, focus…

We would both like to contribute to the child bearing aspect of things, I have no problem sharing a fat squishy baby for ever and ever with my love, no matter which of us is knocked up.

We’ve been together 5?6?7 years? And it will never be enough.

I like to write; poems, short stories, longer stories. I have taken senior photographs. I enjoy caffeine and popcorn with hot sauce. I’m a lactose intolerant vegetarian prone to migraines. I love all Law &Order, big bang theory..karin slaughter, Steven king, Shakespeare. Usually people who say they like Shakespeare are lying, but I mean it!

I work with the mentally ill, I don’t go to the gym even though I have a membership, I love to sit by the river. I’m sarcastic as a family trait but I try to be more funny than cynical.

Hmmmm, idk, that’s some random stuff about me
