So, turns out J's last cycle we think was an-ovulatory. No biggie. 2 cycles of sheer confusion. This cycle was *so* much nicer. BIG RED FLAGS, clear signals. We inseminated on the PERFECT day. Our timing was impecable, so I feel pretty good.

We're using the following fertility tracking methods:
-speculum to examine her cervix everyday (so we examine cervical mucous, os opening and cervical position)
-the Fertile Focus (which is really neat!)
-pee sticks, which track lutenizing hormones.

It's a big crazy, but it's helped to narrow things down *really* well. We're using just dip sticks, instead of expensive mid-stream sticks, which has cut the costs down INSANELY.

We're 4 days away from testing again. J's temperature has actually stayed up, instead of fluctuating all over the damn place. Her cycle was it's normal length and nothing funny happened, which was re-assuring.

Part of me thinks suddenly going back to acupuncture after not going for over a year made her body do funny things, but the acupuncture was specifically FOR pregnancy, so our practitioner didn't move huge blobs of energy. Maybe there WAS a block and she did move it, and it just took 2 months for it to sort itself out. Who knows.

I "accidentally" bought an Ergo carrier.... ;) It was on babysteals and 50% off, and even shipped to Canada it was still $50 less than buying it in the stores. The damn thing is brand new. It's skookum!! I may have also accidentally bought adorable rainbow babylegs. I purposefully bought really nice cloth diapers though (srsly, 50% off. Normally $23 each, good for 7lbs to 35lbs, and they're super swanky! I hope they work!!).

Hoping for a positive update on Thursday/Friday.
