Feebee - CD9We have a strategic plan for this cycle - we are going to go at it hell for leather so that even if the little buggers can't swim properly, there will be so many of them up there, they will simply be backed up all the way to my ovary. And Dr W told us to do it every night in the run up to O. Dr D had previously told us only to do it every 2nd night, but as we've seen Dr W more recently, we will go with her. And, more importantly, the month we did actually get pregnant, we did it almost every night for 2 weeks. I am not boasting about our sexual prowess, I am merely stating the lengths to which we will go to become pregnant. We are currently on day 4 of the marathon and DH is still at the "Are we doing it tonight?" stage. I predict by early next week he will have reached the "Do we have to do it tonight?" phase.
Another strategic move I have made, this time to protect my sanity rather than to help the conception process, is to give up message boards. Regular readers may have been under the impression that I had already done this, but no, the last time I quit I only gave up posting. I have still been torturing myself regularly, crying over pregnancy announcements by people I haven't even talked to online, never mind met. But they've only been trying a few months! Yes, Feebee, this is the norm and you are the exception, say bye bye to the pregnant ladies and do something more useful with your time.
If there are any long-timers from my regular message board who pop in here now and again, please do let me know if you have any good news, I would genuinely love to know. Yes, I have been known to cry with happiness on hearing some pregnancy announcements, twice recently actually - one IVF baby after 7 years TTC, another pregnancy after a stillbirth. So ask yourself first, do you meet these fairly stringent requirements??? Only joking! All long-timers from MM and all bloggers very welcome.
