Good things

Yesterday I went to a presentation hosted by the local Cathedral's pro-life group about Creighton and NaPro.  I already knew the information, but I was able to meet some local people who have dealt with or are dealing with infertility.  Since it's so hard to meet other people IRL who are dealing with infertility, and especially who've gone through the morally licit treatments like NaPro, I wanted to put myself out there are a resource and a connection into the blog world for others who are here locally.

I'm starting work on Monday and I got to meet the little boy (really little, less than 2 weeks old) I'll be nannying for.  This week I'll be just helping out the mom, whose still on leave for a little while long, since the dad will be out of town.

D and I did end up using Friday night, and it was a much happier experience than Thursday night was.  It's looking like yesterday (CD 16, pretty good for me) was Peak day so Friday would have been P-1.  It would be nice to use today, but I'm glad to have decent timing at all after Thursday night's debacle.  The annoying thing is that I'll have to get my P+7 done next Saturday, and we'll have friends in town plus D's working 7-5, so it'll take some effort to get the bloodwork done.

 I really hope that the bleeding will continue to stay away this cycle.  As disappointing as it would be to have hope that I was pregnant and not be, it's even more disappointing to not even get to have any hope.

  1. Is that hard for you to nanny for such a young baby? I don't know if I could do it. I guess you could look at it as good experience for when you have your own, huh? Isn't this couple you are working for expecting their own baby as well? They'll be busy and so will you.

    I'm sure you'll be able to fit some time in for a blood draw next Sat. Some how...I was always able to squeeze in a moment. Praying for you!!!

  3. Wow, I would absolutely love it if a church in my city would do that. I would make every woman I know attend! I am so happy to hear that you had a good time with your husband...I was worried about you being so down. Good for you for getting back up again!! Oh and I know you are happy to start working...you will get good practice time! Oh and Saturday...get on it!

  5. FX for a great cycle.....
    I am glad that you have the ability to meet others in your area. I agree with everyone else that I wish I had something like that in mine. I am curious about the presentation. What was it like? Was it a PPT or did some women get up and explain their experiences etc? If I had the nerve, I would do a presentation at my church....so if there was a great PPT I might be interested.

  6. I'm sure that you will be able to figure out a way to get your blood work done. Us IF girls are pretty good at making up excuses!! But Sew is right, could you do it on P+6? I think my Napro practitioner has said that you can go as late as P+9, but you should double check that.

    And yes, stay away bleeding!!! Give Mrs. Blondie a break!
