A good mood!

Uh oh.  Watch out.  I sat down to right this tonight and I am, get this, in a good mood! I'm not feeling sorry for myself and I'm not feeling depressed. Wow, this feels nice.  And guess what else? Today, I booked a trip to Charleston. I cannot wait to go!  It was totally spontaneous and I'm super excited.  The kicker (I just thought about this in the shower) is that I didn't even look at my calendar to see whether or not I'd be ovulating, in the 2ww, etc. Didn't even cross my mind!  I go somewhere almost every month for a few days. In 16 months I have not made any plans without first consulting my trusty fertilityfriend iPhone app.  I still haven't even looked at it. Not sure what that's all about.  But, I'm going with it for now. I have something to look forward to no matter what happens!

D and I haven't had much time to talk since the RE visit. We spoke a little about the chance of multiples with clomid and both feel that twins would be an option for us. We are ok with taking that risk.  For this month, assuming I'm not already pregnant (of course), we may or may not try the clomid. It depends on when my cycle starts. My grandma's 70th birthday is at the end of April and I will go solo out of town for a few days to see her.  If my cycle is even the slightest bit late, we'll miss prime BD time.  And we both agreed that there's no need to do a medicated cycle if we can't use it to it's full potential.  And I'm ok with that.  I appreciate the feedback I got regarding Clomid. It was all duly noted.  Thank you :)

Hope you all are well. I'm excited about the planned 80 degree day tomorrow! Cook out for dinner, I think.  Be well.


  1. I think it's the Clomid script that brings happy thoughts. I got my prescription in the mail yesterday and I have been in the BEST mood since! Finally a fresh chance at ttc! I got the twin lecture too, and 2 is better than none! I'm having this current cycle off to rest before we put our all into clomid cycles. We might be cycle buddies!!!!

    Have a safe trip!! I love short breaks and having something to look forward to.

  2. Thank you for your comments on my blog. It makes me feel so supported and just happy, even in the roughest of times, knowing that people out there are thinking about me.

    I just changed the url to my blog for various reasons (which I'll post about later)it's now:


    Would love to hear from you if you continue to read :)
