And a New Year to You! I hope it's happy...

I know this year will be happy. But I really want it to involved being knocked up. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
So hello to all you lovely ladies (and the occasional gentleman that may read this blog).
I'm back, still without child, but in good spirits about continueing our quest.
The plan is to do an IUI this month, but check it out: The typical day my eggs are ready is CD 12. Guess what is supposed to happen on CD 12 this month? My possible first day of jury duty. Oh NO! What do I Do? I'm scheduled for January 20th to call in. BUT, if we do an IUI, there is a good chance that those days would be IUI days.
I'm thinking that I'll play everything by ear and see what we can accomplish, but this may be God's way of putting things off for us just another month.

Here is also one more reason for me to 'be thankful' that I'm not pregnant (I'm working on finding joy in all things, even the really tough, crappy, infertile things) - my disability insurance at work just changed over. So had I gotten pregnant before January I wouldn't have been covered if I had to be on bed rest or anything over 6 weeks. but now if (when!) I get pregnant I'll have extra disability insurance that will pay me almost my entire salary after only 7 work days. So that is a blessing.
Now if I can just keep my job in this crazy economy...

Enjoy the start of a fresh week and I'll be poking around all of your blogs soon!

Don't you hate how life goes on while you're desperately trying to get a positive pregnancy test? TTC is such a huge thing in our lives -it just seems like the Cosmos would give us a break every once in awhile (i.e. parents coming to visit while you're ovulating, jury duty, etc...)

Glad you are finding silver linings in everything. I say go for a medical excuse with the jury duty. Maybe you could get your RE to write you a note or something.

Glad you're back.

I've been told that I can get jury duty postponed for medical reasons if an IUI or IVF falls on that day (I have jury duty not long after my approximate IVF). You might want to call and find out. I hope you don't have to postpone your IUI. What a pain!
