Here's my ticker!

Saturday, May 31, 2008


I finally got my pee sticks! I really can't believe they're here! And I was naughty... I used one just to see what they would look like and what I should expect once I'm actually waiting for something. I know, I know... I'm really weird like that.

So anyway, either you, my readers, have not been coming around, or you just plain lost interest in helping a woman in your same boat out :( I have not gotten any responses to my request for instructions on how to thaw sperm!

C'mon people! I'm dying here and no one pushes a hand my way! Show me that you are willing to help a fellow woman in need!

So... I am now officially waiting for AF, which means CD1 is slowly approaching, and with it, the start of my charting and temping and OPKs and so on and so forth...

If all goes well, I should be inseming this cycle. Keep your fingers crossed for me! It will be an IUI with fresh sperm, so I'm hoping it will be charmed and I get a baby out of it, if not, I'll have 4 frozen vials to do at-home insems for 2 more cycles...

I am getting really really nervous...

Give me suggestions on where I can find some really good instructions on how to THAW the frozen vials and then inseming at home.

If I don't get preggo... I am thinking of starting C.lomid on my third cycle to make the most of the last 2 vials and not have to make my donor come down again to donate. What do you guys think? There are no twins in my family except for very distant relatives, and I think it was from the in-laws side of the family... Would I have a very big chance of getting twins that way?

I need all the advice you can give me... What worked for when you finally got preggo?

...when I said something big might be about to happen, and that I'd let you all know as soon as I was sure?

Well, this is it... I can tell you guys since I'm sure it's happening now... I can't believe it, actually, and I'm so excited I'm about to burst!

I was looking at a donor in order to start TTC, and he said yes! After I ran some tests to make sure everything would be all right (we had all the info on his part) he agreed! I will be buying OPKs and a basal thermometer this afternoon online so I can start charting!

I really can't believe this yet, I still have to wrap my head around it. It just all seems too good to be true and I still feel like I'm going to wake up any second now... Oh dear...

So, dear readers, this has officially become a TTC blog! Welcome onboard, and enjoy the ride!

Oh blogger, how I missed thee, let me count the ways...

Holy guacamole!!!

I had not been able to get in here for the past couple of days, and let me tell you, I was having SEVERE blogging withdrawal!!! I tried to update for you guys a couple of days ago, and to my surprise my account said it had been deactivated!

So I did what any normal google user would do.

I freaked


I went totally bonkers. Must have tried to log onto the account 5 different times following their WRONG instructions! Then I finally gave in and filled out the form they told me to. I got an email back about 10 mins later. And they said if I felt my account had been suspended in error, I should reply. So I did.

And I waited

And waited

And waited some more

Today, being fed up with waiting (and just DYING to post although I had nothing to post -about-) I filled out their form AGAIN. But instead of just adding the exact steps followed to get the error, I added "oh, and this is the second email I've sent. I've already replied to your previous response and got no answer".

So I got a prompt response... With the same form letter... But I replied to that again stating that this was the second time they were giving me the runaround... So I got another form email asking me to pick from a list for the reason why I was complaining... And surprisingly... None of the reasons fit my problem... So I replied again... And finally got a form letter that looked like it would help, so I followed directions...

On top of filling out the form in a webpage, I also replied to the email with additional information they could use to prove I actually AM who I claim I am and actually OWN the account... They replied back within minutes stating my access had been reinstated and that I could log back on... WOOHOO! :D

I couldn't believe how happy I was over this! I was actually getting really really sad over having possibly lost my gmail account, and especially my blog... I've had my account for YEARS (maybe 3 or 4) and had never had a problem before, so I was really surprised...

So, if you ever have this problem, the best advice I can give you is: Don't give up. Be nice and send out all the information they need. Be polite, realize that the person helping you is most definitely not the person that caused the problem to begin with. Be patient. I know how frustrating it is and how lost you feel, but throwing a fit will help you not.
