So we're ovulating... big deal, right? Well, for us it is very exciting news because at least we now know that R is ovulating for sure.

Now that we know things are working, we have questions! Once a positive test has been established, when is the optimum time to inseminate? Right then, the next day, etc???

R thinks we should buy the expensive ovulation predictor kit/machine because it indicates the peaks, but since these cheap tests are working, I think our money could be spent more wisely elsewhere.

Advice, please!

p.s. R promises to post soon... she's been swamped with school/classes

This afternoon, R and I had a physician appointment and well, things went very well! It looks like we'll be able to do everything right here in town. And the best part is that we really like the doctor a lot.

I can't recall all of the specifics, and since R was doing most of the talking (shocking, really!), I'll get her to post her comments later this evening.

At any rate, I am very excited and pleased with the way things are progressing.

Last night, I had a dream in which I was pregnant and I was carrying the baby in a very peculiar way. Click here to see a drawing of what my stomach looked like. And in my dream, every time the baby moved, my stomach moved, too -- sort of like when a dog rolls around under a bed sheet. I mean, it moved a lot. I don't remember much else, other than I went into labor and it was quite painful. And for some reason, I was wandering around a department store, waiting to give birth because for some reason the hospital wouldn't take me in.

Note: When I woke this morning, my belly felt very sore.

R was doing a bit of research via the internet after we learned that the fertility clinic we planned to use is closed. She found a program titled Shared Risk, which basically involves paying one fee in return for 10 tries with IUI (at least I think it's IUI). After doing the math, it makes a lot of sense for us, so who knows. Does anyone else have experience with this?

I've started another blog -- nothing too exciting, but it's more of a discipline thing than anything else. Come visit at Ju. 2006 and add comments, if you'd like.
