It seems we may have to pause our plans for a short while. I don't want to go into too many details but H & M's rental home doesn't have a tenant any longer, so they are paying two mortgages at the moment without that extra help from a rental income. The responsible thing to do is to pause our plans so they can be 100% financially confident again to handle the expenses that come along with this pregnancy/surrogacy. They are crunching numbers and trying to figure it out, but this cycle will have to pass by as well. Hopefully soon we can get back on the babytrain.

I did get a positive OPK today at noon. Today is CD 17. I should ovulate tomorrow or Monday. I have been temping so I should see a spike in the next couple days. My cycles are doing good, aside from that long one last month.

So that's where we are at, I'll let you know when things get more exciting :)

Keep us in your thoughts and  prayers as always <3

October Baby?

HOORAH! AF showed up last week!

I'm currently on CD 6, AF left earlier today.

Plans about this cycle are still being discussed. I'll let you know when we decide anything for sure.

I *think* ovulation will occur between Jan 29th and Feb 4th, CD 18-24. That's a whole week to try inseminations, but we'll see what H & M will like to do.

I'm continuing to take Vitex and drink Fertilitea and Red Raspberry Leaf Tea, plus all the normal vitamins I take. We will be trying the instead cup whenever we do inseminate, I just have this feeling that it will work!

I am really hoping we can work this cycle out in our favor for a late October baby!

Keep us in your thoughts and send the babydust!

Today is CD 33. I was expecting my period on the 4th or 5th of January. It's now the 8th of January. I'm currently 16 DPO, or so I believe, I don't really know what to think! I had a barely positive OPK on CD 16, I wasn't able to test CD 15 because I was at a birth. I believed my body ovulated on CD 17, my cervix told me so as well as my cervical mucus, the signs were there. So why is AF not here yet :(

I just want AF to start so we can figure out where to go next. I had 3 months of regularity in my cycles where I could predict within a 3-4 days span when I would ovulate, but now with this messed up cycle I won't know for sure next cycle.

If my ovulation was delayed I wish I just knew for sure so I could expect AF to arrive 12-14 days after that date. Maybe I had an anovulatory cycle and never actually ovulated, but had the signs.

I'm definitely temping next cycle so I know for sure what day ovulation occurs! I was going to this cycle but had forgotten at the beginning.

I DO NOT like not knowing what my body is doing in terms of fertility.....
