J and I are being very indecisive lately. What does that mean for ttc? We will be doing yet another natural cycle this month.
Last month’s cycle ended up being 24 days, which, if I ovulated as early as I think I may have, it would have still given us a 13-14 day luteal phase. I woke up to spotting on cd25 and was full flow by the afternoon turning it into cd1. By cd2, neither one of us knew if we should go forward with our 5th IUI so instead, I called and made an appt to meet with Dr. R on Nov. 5th to further discuss our options.
Honestly, despite seeing several of you get BFP’s lately, some from IUI’s, I am okay with putting it off for at least 1 more cycle. We sat down and went over finances the other night and J is completely freaking out about credit card debt and the fact that we have to make payments instead of just paying them all off like we normally do (Well, like he has always done, I never did that!).
Apparently, telling him that other people dealing with infertility are way more in debt than we are doesn’t help, lol. The conversation ended up with me in bed in tears because part of the debt is due to surprises I had planned for him to get away and help with all the stress of infertility. Instead, it just caused him more stress. I ended up canceling our weekend away to Door County for our anniversary but we are still going to Minneapolis for the Garth Brooks concert. It sucks, but what can we do. I also think we will be staying home over Christmas instead of doing a road trip to FL like we were hoping to do.
Other than that, not much happening. I’m crazy busy working on pulling events together for National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week in November and I’ll be very happy when it’s over. If you wouldn’t mind saying some prayers for Family Promise of Monroe County, I would totally appreciate it. We need to get 8 more churches in the county on board and so many seem to be in-between Pastors right now. We also need to raise the funds, but if we could just get 500 people in the WHOLE county to donate $180/yr or just $15/mo, the program would be completely funded for the year. We are really hoping to open some time this winter. We fear if we don’t make it happen this winter, it’s going to lose steam and go by the wayside like every other time somebody has tried to something for homelessness in our area.
Have a great weekend, Friends!
Lots of Love~Dawn
