Life Moves On

Today is cycle day 9 and I did not ovulate last month. Damn this PCOS. It is so very frustrating that my body does not function like it should. I can not take the metformin any longer due to the side effects, so this is not an option for me. We are in the process of changing out insurance. I am not sure if the new coverage will cover at least some of the cost of infertility treatments yet. I do know that the coverage will be better and no more fighting with the insurance company to get them to pay for things that they are suppose to. This is a real pain in the butt. We pay a lot of money to have coverage and the insurance company will not pay for anything. Fighting with them takes a toll on me. I will update when I know more.

Day 3 of AF and Cub Scout Camping Trip

Well af arrived 3 days ago and I am a big ball of cramps. I thought I ovulated last month but I was wrong. :( I am just glad it held off till after we were back from the cub scout camping trip.

I wanted to share some pictures of the camping trip with you today as well. Boober had a BLAST!! He made so many new friends. It was great. Boober is going to be a Bear :)

 Getting ready for the Flag Ceremony.

The troop is gathering in the center of camp.

Here comes the flag as the troops salute.

Here is the troops receiving instructions for the treasure hunt. The kids had so much fun. The treasure was candy and water balloons and water guns. Yes I got wet with them. LOL

That is Boober in the green shirt right up front. He has not gotten his uniform yet. We hope to have it in 2 weeks.

This is our tent. If you look close you can see Libby inside taking a brake from all the excitement.

There she is. LOL When I moved the tent door to take the picture it let the light in. She was out with the troop for most of the trip and needed a break.

We were all tired from the trip and slept for most of the next day. I do not think Boober has been so quiet in his life. LOL He was pooped.

Are we forgetting our DH when TTC?

Are we forgetting our DH (dear husband) when TTC (trying to conceive)?

Now I know we know they are there. We need them to do that baby dance. LOL
What I mean is are we forgetting that TTC is hard on our DH as well?Lets see some of the things that they worry about.
The pressure to preform on demand.
I bet it is hard for them when we are telling them things like: "Come on lets do this real quick the stick says I am ovulating." "We need to do it now I am ovulating and that egg does not stick around long." "No time for foreplay we are TTC." "Get over here so we can baby dance."
I am sure there are tons more but you get the idea.
When we start TTC the fun leaves and it becomes a have to instead of a want to. As a woman I am thinking about ovulation, body temperature, posture, best position for fertilization, and much more. You know they realize they are only a tool in this mind set. I think it is best for us to stop and think about bringing the love and play back into the bed room and taking some of the pressure off. This will lower the level of stress we all feel. You know DH picks up on the stress. Take a day and spend it romancing you man and tell him how much he means to you. He is a part of this struggle to conceive as much as we are. Face it ladies we need our DH and we love them very much.
