Happy June

Despite my last post, this has turned out to be a really nice break for me. I REALLY like not thinking about infertility every damn day. Time is passing in a more normal manner and at a more normal speed. I'm doing fun things and enjoying them. I joined the swim team and I'm loving it. My garden is TONS of work, but I'm trying to mulch it to stop the weeds and then hopefully things will calm down.

In the meantime, my next cycle will start next week, and I'm not sure what we'll do. I'm a little worried that my husband won't be around for the potential IUI, because he has a conference that will end theoretically one day before the IUI - assuming AF will arrive on the day I'm projecting.

We got the SA results back - completely normal. Honestly, I was a bit worried, but also I think in some ways would have felt some peace about them finding something abnormal. At least we would have something to fix!

For my part, I have been spotting off and on for over a week. That has never really happened to me, except possibly one time when I was a teenager (my cycles have always been so regular that I actually remember having mid-cycle spotting 15 years ago, crazy). I'm not going to worry about it, although I will mention it to the doctor next week, if/when AF arrives.

Blogging every day or even every other day was wearing me out emotionally. I'm coming back, I think, now that we'll be getting back into treatment, but it will be sparse. I just need to be less obsessed, and cutting back here seems like one way to do it.

Hope all's well out there in the blogosphere.


  1. I hope mulching works for you. I tried that and it didn't seem to keep weeds down at all.

  2. I love gardening. But, the weeds drive me INSANE!!!

    I agree with taking a bit of a step back from blogging. I'm with you on that.

    Glad to see you, though :)

  3. Good luck with the next cycle. Enjoy your gardening and I hope you have a great June.

  4. Wishing you lots of luck this cycle. We'll be here cheering you on, whether you're posting often or not.

  5. I'm glad you've enjoyed your break. When you get your garden good to go, take a picture. I'd love to see it! Sending you many hugs and cheering you on for June!

  6. It would be nice not to think about this infertility everyday. Hopefully someday soon for everyone!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
