This blog was started as a way to work through the grief of losing my baby March 9, 2011. I found reading stories of other women comforting while I've been going through this and hope that I can help anyone else experiencing the same thing.

Blogger is making me so mad. First of all I still can't comment on posts. I really want to tell Kara (another BLM) how much I'm thinking of her. But Blogger has it out for me and won't let me post. Then I wrote a few paragraph post yesterday and it didn't publish it. I have no idea what's going on.

So anyway...I guess I'll see if I can get a post to publish today.

I'm on day 22 of a 25 day cycle. I'm 100% I'm not pregnant. My pre-period symtpoms have all been present and they are not pregancy symptoms. So I'm sure I'm out for this month. I have taken some pregnancy tests and they are all negative. I just don't understand why it's taking time to get pregnant. We got pregnant the first month last time without really even trying. At that time I used to just keep track of my cycles on a program on my iPod. It would give me green days when I should be fertile. I made sure we DTD (Did the deed) on some green days and I ended up pregnant. Now I'm temping, using ovulation predictor kits, checking my cervical mucus, and really making sure we DTD a ton and I'm not pregnant. It's really frustrating. I guess last time was just a lucky thing that turned out not to be so lucky. I sure hope it doesn't take a year. I can't remember the exact number, but the statistics for women over 35 are about 8 months to a year of TTC before getting pregnant I think.

I'm headed out of town on Sunday to go to a Yoga Nidra training at Kripalu. I'm really excited to get away for a bit. I think J and I can use some space too. I'm hoping to do some blogging while I'm gone, but I'll play with blogging pics from Kripalu I think!

OOOH!! I published this post and then went in to edit it and give it a title and noticed that yesterday's post was saved as a draft. Woohoo. I'm going to go see if I can figure out how to publish it now!

  1. Hey girl. I looked back at the date of your positive OPK, and since you're only 10 dpo, I wouldn't get too discouraged. I only had a *very faint* positive on a FRER with FMU at 11 dpo. So, maybe that will happen for you, also. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!! Hope your training goes well, also! :)
