Calendar-ing? Yeah, I made that word up.

Ok so I need to start charting my cycle right? Ok, but first I need to figure out just how long my cycle is and if it is normal. First day of my last period was 9/30 and now I just need to get it again and I'll know how long my cycle is. This will give me the information necessary to figure out just when I ovulate (or supposedly ovulate).


Dude, why the hell is this so damn complicated?! (That was a rhetorical question)

Yeah, don't stress about this. Yeah uh, don't tell me to not stress about this cause it just makes me stressed out more.

84 pound weight loss had better have normalized my cycle. I'm SICK TO DEATH of dealing with abnormal reproductive issues. It's annoying. Annoying like some psycho buzzing about the virtual world spazzing on you when they have no earthly idea about any sort of reality that exists. They're like a little fucking fly that won't stop buzzing in your face until you SMASH it into jelly. Um, tangent.

I'm hooking up with some of my high school friends next month! Excited about that. We're also going to start planning our 15 year reunion come January. Ugh, makes me feel old! But, I guarantee that I'll have the wisest and most mature spouse there.

Side note: This blog will be a toned down compared to my other blog since the nature of this blogs' focus is trying to get knocked up. Some emotion will be prevalent like frustrations of trying to conceive and the vicissitudes of conception. I hope that what I write here may in time help at least one other person, whether they be male or female, with their TTC journey.

Disclaimer: Any comments made that are of a stalking, harassing, violent, threatening, and down right taking advantage of my reproductive complications will be removed. Any comment that I do not like will be erased. Appropriate action will be taken, consequences will be administered, and the perps will not like what comes their way at all. This is your only warning.

Starting Out

A few days ago PIE and I decided to throw out the BC pills and try to get pregnant. Well, me get knocked up lol. With a history of a PID infection that went undiagnosed for nigh on 3 years during my active duty military days, an ectopic pregnancy that took my left tube, and a diagnosis of PCOS in 2006 the chances of me conceiving naturally are pretty slim.

We've decided to take the appropriate vitamins and herbal supplements to increase the likelihood of my ovulation. Stranger things have occurred!

This blog will be a record, pathway, history of my journey towards parenthood. We have chosen to stave off IVF and other fertility drugs for a few years so that nature can have a good chance to do her thing. If that doesn't happen within the next 3 years, then we'll revisit the scientific intervention option.

Stay tuned.....
