Miss me?

I am back from vacation and, surprisingly, glad to be back. I had a great, relaxing time and got to spend lots of time with my sister and nephew and do and see a lot of fun things. Still, there is something oddly comforting about returning to my usual routine, and I missed my goldens!

AF finally arrived on Saturday 9/19, while we were en route to DC. (Lovely to start your period on a plane.) Rather than place a (late) CD 1 call to my clinic from my sister's when we arrived and find a clinic for a beta hCG and a pharmacy for my drugs in her area, we elected to just TTC on our own again this cycle. (MM was in full agreement and was actually more adamant than I about not wanting that stress and inconvenience during our first day of vacation.)

So today is CD 10 of our 18th cycle TTC. We are proceeding unmedicated but will still try to make sure that we do "the deed" during my fertile window (not that this has ever been a problem for us in the past 17 cycles we've TTC). I checked an OPK today to see if ovulation is approaching, and it was negative.

Happily, I really didn't think much about TTC while we were away. Sure, there was the occasional fleeting thought when I saw a pregnant woman somewhere, but for the most part, I just enjoyed my time off.

I've been keeping up with reading blogs via my BlackBerry during my absence, but it's hard to comment when reading via Google Reader. I hope to be more participatory now that I'm back in the usual groove.

  1. welcome back! sorry to hear AF showed on your first day of vaca, but think that you were right not to stress out with the logistics of all of that while on vaca. Wishing you luck this cycle. yay for vacations!

  2. I'm so glad ya'll had a good time and are happy to be home! The same thing happened to me this cycle - AF arrived before insurance had cleared for the next round, so we're taking a relaxed approach this round. Time for a mental and emotional break!

I love comments! Just one caution: if you want to leave a negative comment on this blog, I would ask that you question the motive for doing so; I will not publish it. Thanks.
