CD 20

Today is CD 18 and no OV. I'm not sure what this means or how the rest of this month will play out. I have to wonder is this is just a delay on myside or if the Clomid is not strong enough. Hopefully OV will come about soon but it not then at least I know I can call my Doc.

So I started this post a few days ago and have just had no time to finish it. After showing no signs of OV I decided today would be the last day to POAS. And go figure - finally this morning (CD 20 if you had not guessed already) my CBEFM showed a high reading. This is the latest I've ever showed OV signs and all I can do is guess that its due to the Clomid. Hopefully I'll show another high reading tomorrow and this will not have just been a fluke. I really don't want this cycle to be wasted.

In other non-baby-like topics, I had a fantastic weekend! The hubby and I went out to a concert on Friday to see an 80s band. It was cute but we really had a lot more fun once we ventured up to the other section of the venue to see the 90s band. They were great and we really just had a fun time rocking out. Saturday we laid around by the pool all day long and just relaxed. Then on Sunday we visited with family (which we always do) and of course that is always nice.

On a fun note, I was blog - tagged by Summastarlet from How To Make A Baby & Other Ramblings. So now I get to answer a few questions she left for me and do the same for a few of my readers (who btw I just love and appreciate so much!)

Here are my questions to answer -

1. Favorite time of year and why?
Winter, hands down! I do not like being hot at all. I love winter clothes, snow and hot tea/chocolate.

2. Five things you would like to do in your life (but haven't yet).
I guess its cheating if I say my first one is Being a Mom :)
a- skydive. I have wanted to for a very long time and one day I will
b- run a marathon
c- read all of the books on my book shelf - this one is really unattainable since I'm always bringing home new books, but a girl can dream
d- build a house with a library room
e- take in foster animals for a local shelter

3. Favorite band/singer/artist?
Oh my, there are way too many bands/singers that I love to pick a favorite. I also have a very wide selection of genres that I listen to but I'll try to give a few highlights -

My all time favorite band to see in concert is Matchbox Twenty - they just put on a great show.
I am also very much in love with Edwin McCain and will go out of my way to catch a show of his. Just purchased the new Sara Bareilles album and have listened to it over and over again (not a bad song on there).
When I need a chill day I listen to Colbie Caillat or Ray LaMontagne
Really like Florence + the Machine - her videos are a bit odd-ball but the CD is good.
On a fun day, I'm a very big fan of soundtracks (all of the Twilights, Mad Love, Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show, Shrek, and so many many more).
When I need a rock day I like Breaking Benjamins, Cold, 3 Doors Down (just to a name a few)

4. Most embarrassing moment?
Again, way to many to pick the best one. I have a bad habit of sticking my foot in my month sometimes. I am also a bit clumsy so I can fall down pretty easily. A few years ago I purchased a treadmill about 9 months before getting married so I could lose some weight and feel better on my wedding day. Before the stupid thing could be delivered I fell down on my porch and cracked a bone in a my foot. So I was in a boot until the week of my wedding!
I'm sure if you ask my friends they could give you a lot more embarrassing stories.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Happy ICLW ~#42

  2. Hoping that O is about to happen for you! Sounds like you had a fun weekend! Love going out and seeing bands! Always a good time!

  3. Haha I would love to read all the books on my shelves. That'll never happen for me either. :)

  4. Hi from ICLW :)

    You and I have very similar music taste--I am saving my pennies to get the new Sara Bareilles album!

  5. I've never had any success with clomid, so I do hope that you will have. If not ask for Femara/letrozole that did work for me... I hope you get your BFP soon!

    ICLW #105

  6. I'm glad you finally got a high reading! I ovulated the latest ever on my BFP cycle - I think it was CD27 or something like that. It's amazing how our bodies like to screw with us huh?

    Happy ICLW #115

  7. Hello from ICLW. My BFP cycle - which was on clomid - I also ovulated on CD 20! Hoping that means its a good strong O and you see a BFP too!

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I too like Matchbox 20 and 3 Doors Down. Both are among my favorite bands.

    I hope this cycle ends up working out for you!
