CD47 and counting

Just like in the song "Unchained Melody", time is going slowly. I am to the point that I just want it to be April so I can:
     A. Get some provera to kickstart my period and then start clomid, or
     B. O or get AF so that something is happening again! I think at this point if AF comes, I will give the doctor a call and see if I can just get going on the meds now instead of waiting another 47+ days.

But for now, I'm at a standstill, and it sucks. But I can hardly complain when the weather has been great these last few days, and A and I have been able to go out and play and go for walks! She is so fun this year, walking around like the big girl she is! She loves to swing and go down the slides! It's amazing just to watch her explore. She is getting to be so independent, which is great on one hand, but on the other, it makes me long for the little baby that used to depend on me, and need me for just about everything. I think that's why it warms my heart so much when she stops and grabs for my hand when she needs to take that big step over the barrier to get into the sand!

New Hair, New Hobby (knitting!), and a FFFC

Got a new haircut today. Don't mind my face. I look horrible, and the one little wave on the left looks funny in this pic, but I actually like the cut!! Kind of lifted my funky mood a bit today.

So yesterday, I decided I was going to teach myself how to knit. I bought some needles and yarn and a book....and got nowhere. So I popped online to YouTube. Tada!! I figured out how to cast on in about 30 seconds. Easy as pie. Next I needed to learn how to actually knit. Again to the book. No luck. Back on YouTube. Tada! I know how to knit!! Not perfectly, but I'm getting the hang of it. So when I wanted to learn the purl stitch, I just went right to YouTube. Figured it out pretty quick!! Now I just need to figure out what to do with these stitches. I start with about 25 cast on stitches, and soon I have 50 or so loops on my needle! I'm afraid if I just keep going it won't fit on my needles anymore! I still have to learn what to do with them.

As for TTC this cycle (ha! I almost put 'this month'. As if...) it's not looking pretty. Here I am on cd 40, with no clear signs of ovulation, and no AF. Boo. I am half hoping I make it to cd60 with no AF so I can just pop some provera and get started on the clomid sooner than later. I guess that's my FFFC today.

Finally ovulating!....maybe??

Yesterday was cd30, and after taking opk's for about 20 days and getting a bunch of negatives, I finally got a positive yesterday. I think. Sometimes they are so hard to read. I should have gone out to get a digital, but I figured that I was charting my temps anyway, so it wasn't a big deal. Then I got curious a few hours later. So I took another test, and it was clearly negative. Grrrr...ok. Fine. So I just figured I would test later today (which I probably still will), but I wake up this morning to a .4+ degree temp spike! So I will have to wait a few days to know for sure, but I think maybe I did still ovulate yesterday and maybe I just caught the end of my surge. Must have been a short one :-/. At least we have awesome timing if I did O yesterday!

If this cycle is a bust, I have one more cycle to get through before I can move on. I made an appointment with my OB for April 18th for a consult. I should be able to start the clomid when the cycle after that gets going. End of April maybe??
