Random Wednesday Post

This is going to be a random list of things on my mind at the moment :)
  • I had my 7dpo blood work drawn this morning. It checks your progesterone level to make sure you can sustain a pregnancy. Most doctors want to see a 10 or above on a natural cycle. It's nice to get that checked off my testing list.
  • We are going camping with friends this Memorial weekend. There will be twelve of us. We are mountain biking, hiking, fishing and sitting around the campfire eating s'mores. I am really excited :)
  • I love that mountain biking is keeping me so occupied. It's giving me a mental break from this trying to conceive crap. I actually find that I forget about it while I am racing. We are entering four or five races in a 12-race series during the next few months. We raced the first race last night. My Mom & Dad cheered us on and said they had a blast in the spectator area. They are going to come to every race they can. YAY!

excuse my goofy sideways smile ::embarassed::}
  • Infertility. I have struggled using that word to describe our situation. Is that us? We have been trying for over a year and our testing has been normal - so far. I looked up the definition and it states that "infertility is the failure of a couple to conceive after one year of well-timed intercourse." That is us. Once the progesterone blood work results come back and I have my HSG, hopefully we can determine if there is something causing this trouble or if it is Unexplained Infertility.
  • Infertility sucks. Our journey started with "awww, fun! Let's have a baby! I am so excited!" Now it's scheduled sex, lots of let downs, many tears and too many "why couldn't it have been easy for us?" ::sigh:: I don't know how some of you amazing women have been through all of the waiting, testing, procedures, etc. for even longer. I really don't know how you do it. My heart hurts for you. It's just so unfair.
  • I love this song. So much <3
