Any One Know?

Does anyone know if it is at all possible to conceive if you have mid-cycle spotting. My little tests tell me that I do Ovulate..
I guess I'll have to ask the Dr.

Re-do - - More Positive this time

Ok.. So, I deleted my last post.. it was rather negative.. and really, I'm not that negative of a person... So instead, I am going to re-post a little more positively.

I would like to send out all my positive prayers, and thoughts for those beautiful people/couples out there who are going through hard times. I am praying for all of you and hoping the best for you and your families.

I am also very hopfull for those who are stuck on the long TTC journey, and am wishing luck, peace and fertility for you all.

Angela raised some money for Cancer research on the weekend, by shaving her head. It isn't right to the skin, but it is pretty short. I likey! :)
I will post a picture when I get home. (I am at work right now)

There is quite the snow blanket out there tonight. I likey that too!
I am just hoping though that I have a snow brush in my car. Sometimes I don't like it when it snows this early, because it makes me feel all Christmasy too soon, then I am over it by the time Christmas actually rolls around.


Did I mention we will be moving on February 1st?
I think I may have. I am pretty excited about the new place, but not so much about the acutal moving. I will have to ask my co-worker/friend if he can drive a big truck. (he is qualified as a fire fighter, and I think that means he has the big truck liscense) That way, if he can drive a big truck, we can pack everything in all at once. I will have to start packing all of our junk up right away.
This is the first time that we will be required to move in one day only. I guess we could possibly get the place a day early but that will cost extra. I will figure out what it would cost if we could get the keys on Jan 30. They prorate the rent, becasue of liability. Might only be $50 or so, so it might be worth looking into. I just feel better about having a day or so to come back to make sure we have everything... clean up a bit, before leaving this place.

One more week until we try again! :S

Dear Auntie Flo,

Thank you so much for visiting me early. It certainly clears up some wonder. I will welcome you for now, but will probably start to despise you if you continue to show up like this when we are hoping you will stay away for a while.


I guess we are on to try number two. Hopefully practice makes perfect. ;)

In other news...

Well in other news, Ang and I applied to move into a town house. We figured out that we could rent a place way bigger than ours for only about $20 more a month than we already pay, if we can manage to buy a washer and dryer. It isn't the most fabulous neighbourhood in the city, but it is no worse than where we are now, and it has a nice little yard for the dogs to spend some time outside. We will still have to walk them at least 2x a day though, as the yard isn't really big enough for them to run around, and they'll need their exercise.
We will actually have a basement. A real basement, where we can keep our kitty box, and all of our Junk that we are sooooo attached to that we can possibly get rid of it. Silly sometimes when you think about it... the things we keep. We should probably do a purge every 2 months... The other things we plan for the basement is a casual computer/ x-box / TV area. That way when our friends come over with their kids, they will have somewhere to play.. and Ang will also have somewhere to play. LOL...
The basement is sort of divided. One half is where the furnace, water heater and laundry/storage would be, the other half is sort of just a big space. It is completely unfinished. But I think with the help of Ang's dad, we can probably finish it enough to be comfortable. Maybe get a carpet remnant or something to cover the floor.
Both the bedrooms are each the size of the two we have now put together. That is exciting in itself. We are hoping to make the one room "the baby room" along with a spare double bed, just in case anyone wants to stay over. We figure we could sleep in there with the kid (if we have one, don't want to jinx myself) and surrender our master suite (ha ha) to the company.
Also, the living room has laminate floors.. and we are planning to block the dogs from going upstairs to the bedrooms without supervision. (won't last long lol)
I am off now... Just had a few mins to spare... so I thought I would share the other news.

I'm a bad bad blogger....

November 7, 2008. Today.
Well.. it has been a week since we did our first try at the at home insem. Is Halloween a lucky day? My little ovulation tester worked early. Did the insem work? Who knows? If you know.. please tell me. I seriously doubt that the first try would ever work. But, then, if I was trying not to get pregnant, I would be paranoid that I was already right?
One week left to wait.
All of a sudden I feel shy about sharing my life's personal details all over the internet where anyone can read it. I guess I am just nervous that those who I want to surprise, may be reading it.
Of course, I promised myself that I wouldn't be one of those "everything is a sign" people when it came down to it... but I am. Everything means it worked. I feel all PMSy. Of course that means it worked right? I have sore, and bleeding gums.. that means it worked.. been having strange dreams - must have worked, Thirsty all the time.. Think that means it worked?... will keep ya updated, when I know.
Hope all is well out there.
Congratulations to the States! Obama ! yay!!!
