love, life, and the pursuit of liberation

and on to cycle 3

today (wednesday) is 14 dpo and i’m pretty sure i’m not pregnant. i tested tuesday and still another not pregnant and i feel my period getting ready to start.

such is life.

we’re currently trying to figure out what’s next for us. we know we’re going to do a cycle 3 with this donor, but had anticipated switching to a friend of A’s after that. of course, he bailed today. he has a new girlfriend who doesn’t want “his child” (wtf??) to be an issue with their future kids. did i mention that they are a newish couple, are no where near engaged, nor are planning kids? but whatever. she “won” and now he’s thinking about his “kids” with us. um no buddy. that was never the agreement. uncle, yes. godfather, sure. daddy, HELL TO THE NAW (in the famous words of whitney houston). so we’re not dealing with his wishy washiness and said fuck it, don’t worry about it.

so now to figure out plan C. i really, really don’t want to go the medicated route at all. i already feel a bit sad that having a baby is so medicalized because we’re lesbians, but i feel like going the clomid, and all that route adds insult to injury FOR ME. i have no issues with what other women choose to do with their bodies. none whatsoever. i just really don’t want to have to do this.

we’ll see what’s in the cards. in the meantime, i need to work on my affirmations.

    Sorry to hear he got all wishy washy, but better now than when the babies are here. That in itself is a blessing. He’s not the one.

    Not sure what to say about the clomid issue, had a friend who went that route and her son is now 8yrs old. 🙂 I know it’s not the route you want, but at least it’s an option IF you need it and I’m praying that babies come your way soon.

    I’m so sorry about the impending period.

    I completely get your desire to avoid drugs. I feel the same way; I would rather let my body do its own thing. I’m just stubborn that way.

    It’s too bad your friend was flaky, but it’s a good thing you found out now. We had some similar experiences with friends, and it just reinforced for us that we wanted an anonymous donor to circumvent all of the potential “daddy” issues.

    thanks LJ and RG. life will just keep on going and i’m looking for the blessings in all things, so thanks for pointing them out.

    well today AF is supposed to be here. no sign of her yet but that’s how it was last month and she came in the evening. in the meantime i feel like i’m seriously ovulating.

    we shall see. i refuse to take another test until tomorrow.

    Hey Lady, Sorry it didn’t work. On to another cycle together–me, possibly with drugs. I totally understand what you are saying cuz I would rather go natural as well. But, my body might have other plans. C’est la vie.

    Better to know about flakey baby daddies now than later. Seriously dude, see ya! Way too complicated.
