Time flies when it's not the TWW

I don't know how it happened, but suddenly I'm at CD5 in the midst of try #2.

Since our negative beta, here's what you missed:

  • I hoped for my period. Weird to be ping-ponging back and forth between hoping it shows and hoping it stays occupied with baby making responsibilities for a good long time.
  • We picked a new donor. Somewhat out of necessity (temporarily sold out) and somewhat because we weren't 100% on board with the first guy. We named the first donor Little Indian (because he's part Cherokee, like my lovely wife) and the second donor Oakie (because The Jew* from Oklahoma seemed a tad long).
  • I was scheduled for an HSG. I'm a little nervous about this one. We have two big hurdles this month (not counting the one where the miracle happens and the baby is made). 1) I need to get the all clear on the HSG - otherwise it's back to surgery for me and 2) It's technically the right side's turn to step up and make some eggs. But that's the little offender who had to be surgically downsized in April. Not sure if all those parts are up and working yet (ever).

It really is bizarre how the TWW drags on until I'm standing in the corner pulling out my eyelashes and banging my head against the wall and then the two weeks BEFORE the TWW flies by, what with the doctor's appointments and pharmacy pickups and sperm ordering and sushi eating. Twilight zone.

*I can say this because I am one (a Jew, not necessarily from Oklahoma)


  1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Sorry to hear your first try didn’t take. This process is entirely frustrating and completely illogical at times. Hoping everything stays on track for cycle 2… I look forward to following along and getting caught up.

  2. hope try number 2 is the one for you! it is so rough going through the tww. it makes any sane person feel slightly obsessive and crazy.
