Who the hell cares if I ovulated?

Though I’m 100% sure that no one is reading this, I’d say it’s time for an update.  We took this month off as I crawl to the finish line of graduate school, and it was a slightly liberating feeling to ovulate over the weekend and not even know/care/track when it happened.  We spent the weekend with my brother, his pregnant wife, and their daughter, and it was basically a blast.  And no, I don’t have only one pregnant sister-in-law… but two!  L’s sister is pregnant as well, at age 45 with a donated embryo.  The pregnant people.  They’re everywhere.

So I’m trucking along doing a lot of homework and busy-ness at work too… in 4 weeks when we try again, the majority of grad school will be DONE.  I have dreams of being a relaxed puddle on the floor, too chilled out to not get pregnant, right?  It’s possible that I’m just obsessed with projects and hope to move on to pregnancy immediately once grad school is done.  I’m not so good at the in-between times, I can admit that.

For now, homework and daydreaming it is.


Hello out there…

Well, I onlysortabarely know how to use wordpress, so this will be an experiment on all fronts.  Am also a month away from finishing grad school while working 2 jobs (so why not add one more project to the mix, eh?).  And, oh yeah, we’re trying to have a baby.

The wifey and I live in NC, where as of just today we are considered legally married by ye Ole North State.  We will see if this sticks.  Would be pretty great, and make us even more ready to bear babies, if she could be considered a legal parent as well.

You see, we’ve been counting on my uterus to cook said baby.

For the past 2 years.

I’ve lost count of how many times we’ve tried.  Maybe 20?  I remember reading in The Ultimate Lesbian Guide to Pregnancy that each insemination has about a 1 in 20 chance of success.  Or something like that… so we’re due, right?

I’ll tell you some of the tales of the past 2 years.  And will hopefully have good news to share along the way.  As soon as I can figure out how to do this whole blogging thang…

Perhaps no one will read this.  Perhaps it will be nothing more than a therapeutic solo venture.  But if you’re out there, thanks for the company!
