Test 1....

No LH surge.....I kinda figured that much given that today was the first day to "officially" test for an LH surge...can I still have sex tonight?? Haha!

What's with those stupid looking test things anyway? I literally had to spread out the entire instruction booklet from inside the box to understand how to read the results. It was like a newspaper....opening it up and holding it up to read it. Now, I'm a fairly smart person, but come on! If this line is lighter than this line, but if this line is darker than the other line....UGH!

At any rate, the blood sugar has been a little all over the place lately. I need to get it together and get things under control again. Honestly, I was doing sooo much better before the CGM, but for the benefit of trying to get pregnant, I'm going to stick with it. I put it on again a couple of days ago and so far it has not beeped at me that much, but it's still there...constantly haunting me.

My SIL and my brother went to their first appointment today with the fertility specialist. They are moving along quickly!! Their first doctor told her she was missing a fallopian tube and it would be nearly impossible for her to get pregnant on her own. Upon further investigation today at their fertility specialist, she is NOT missing a fallopian tube...what do ya's been there the whole time. She's now on fertility drugs and she goes in on September 3rd to find out when they will do the artificial insemination. I really hope that in September I get some amazing news that I'm going to be an Aunt....and hopefully my own news of being a mommy....but we'll see. Either way, I'm totally pulling for I'm completely dreading the consequences of me getting pregnant before her...just for emotional reasons.

So...I'm avoiding calling my cousin as well. Her husband is supposed to be coming this Sunday to stay with us for 3 weeks...however, I haven't heard a WORD from her in 3 weeks....last time we was kind of up in the I now need to make that dreaded phone call and cross my fingers that he may not be coming at all....but I'm prepared if he does....

Things at work are going well- lots of changes but I'm excited for the next couple months. I got a phone call today for another interview, but I promptly turned it down....with a smile on my face. At least one part of my life is settled for now!


  1. Good luck! And glad that one part of your life is sorted now. Hope when you call your cousin you get the response you want too... I never used those ovulation tests - hope they work for you! Are you also charting your basal temps? And good luck to your SIL too.

  2. Not trying to be a downer, but being honest...i used those ovulation kits (twice) with no success. When I met with the OBGYN he told me that the best thing to do is throw the calendar in the garbage and avoid those kits. He said "they'll drive you nuts". As a T1 I think we're all a little type A personality and we want to control everything we can, but I have learned that most often (particulary re: baby making) it's best to stop planning and just enjoy the practice ;)

    All the very best to you & your sister-in-law.

  3. @ sweets- I'm not charting my basal temps yet.....maybe next month if I need to! Thanks for the luck!!!

    @ Anonymous- you're not being a downer! Everybody does things differently- if it doesn't work this month- I'm throwin the calendar out the window....kinda....I'll still keep notes of important info in case I need it later!
