I had a wonderful vacation in Colorado with my family. We drank gallons of red wine and beer and spent lots of time in the sperm-killing hot tub. A great time was had by all. We'll head down tonight to spend Christmas with the in-laws.
My husband's annual work Christmas party was yesterday. That was harder than I expected. I've been to the party yearly since we started dating in 2002 and have watched his co-workers' kids grow and grow. There are also a lot of new and growing babies every year. This year was particularly hard, as two of my husband's good work friends have new babies who everyone was cooing over. I know it's selfish, but it made me feel somewhat jealous and left out -- another work party with no baby. We ordered many pitchers of beer from this place afterwards, which helped.
Cycle wise, I ovulated late this cycle (Day 19, which is quite late for me). I was getting very annoyed at my "CBE" monitor when it wasn't giving me a peak day around CD 14-15, but sure enough, I got it at CD 19. The deed was done accordingly, though at this point it's kind of a joke that we are still even bothering to try naturally. I'll schedule my saline sonogram, trial transfer and bloodwork after my period shows and we should be good to go for IVF.
I wish you guys a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah (though I know that's over now), and Happy New Year. All the best to all of you for the New Year. Leaving you with one of my favorite Christmas songs (I prefer the humorous variety).
