Cycles & Ovacue FM

I'm hoping to get the ovacue fertility monitor by the end of this summer. I've heard good reviews about it (some were even by some women who have pcos like i do & did get pregnant..so hope is not lost). Its just a matter of talking dh into agreeing to let me get it lol. I really, have low expectations for getting pregnant this month. it stinks, i just dont feel like i timed it right. We will see though.
Im starting to wonder if I do o on my own or not(i know i have talked about this  issue before, but im not completely sure if i do or do not o). Since i have pcos, im not sure if i o every month or not. my cycles arent irregular though..which is a symptom of pcos. the only real symptom i have is the cysts on my ovaries, overweight (always a struggle..since getting off the depo shot)

Couponing & Fertile Focus

Have anyone seen the new TLC series called "Extreme Couponing?" I have and I must stay, it looks pretty interesting. I want to learn how to coupon, but not the the extent the people on the show have, like I do not want a stockpile, i just want to cut my grocery bill in half. I think they take it beyond extreme, I watched an episode the other night, and a woman had enough noodles to last over 1 year, but yet she goes out shopping and picks up 112 more boxes! She already had 2 rooms dedicated to her stockpile and yet she already was telling her husband he had to give up his man cave because she NEEDED the space for her stockpile. Uhm, thats taking it a little far..Its glorified hoarding I believe.

I bought this fertile focus ovulation microscope. It is supposed to work better than OPKs. I tell you, it works wonders. Since I have pcos, i do not always ovulate. This cycle, I took my last prescription of clomid. As of this morning I have hit the transitional phase which means soon I shall hit the ferning phase. I love this thing! so much easier than bbt, or opks. non fertile=bubbles, transitional=bubbles & crystal like pattern and ferning=crystal like pattern all over! its amazing. All you do, is pop off the screen with you thumb, put some saliva  from under your tongue on the screen & let it dry for 5 min. When the 5 min is up, you put the screen back on, and press the light button and look into the light as if you were looking in a microscope. I suggest this little thing to anyone who's TTC!

House Warming Party & Family

We had our house party today...so family could come and see our house. Long day, but loved every minute of it. I missed everyone, especially my sisters, my momma, grams and my daddy. It was a good turn out. Food was good too. Next week, the 22nd of april, I am having my dad's family over for an easter meal, since it is really the only time our schedules work to have the holiday meal. It is my first holiday meal at our house, I can't wait. Benji loved all the people too...he's my baby and soooo loveable!

Benji and Babydancing

I did not realize how hard it would be to ttc with a puppy. He's always right by me 24/7, except at night when in bed he's laying on my husband. This month is the last month on 100mg of clomid and I am taking baby asprin also. I hope that this works for us..otherwise we'll be back to no meds or trying fertilaid and hope for the best. I love my puppy (he's 9months old) but I would love it if he would not bark/whine while in his room while we're trying to babydance. I understand him though, he doesnt want to be away from us.
