The May, June, July, and August Non-News

Super-Secret Post Originally written end-of-month-#8 Life has been overhauled and our plan got a bit changed as a result.

Deciding to Test Everything

Super-Secret Post Originally written end-of-month-#7 So I’ve been tracking ovulation and even decided to take pregnancy tests when my period doesn’t come early.

No News Is Still No News

Super-Secret Post Originally written at the end of month #7 Whoops – been really busy lately and lost track of the updates. Sorry about that. The April/May “month” was a bust as well.

Date-Math Fail

A few cycles back, I realized something while counting which blew my mind with just how terrible I am at date math.

The March/April Non-News

Super-Secret Post Originally written end-of-month-#6 It’s a testament to my habit forming that I’ve stopped assuming in going to be pregnant soon.

Turns out a month is not 26 days.

Taking Charge

Super-secret Post Originally written beginning-of-month-#5 (“March”)) During March, I am super-paranoid about factors under my control.

The February Non-News

Super-secret Post Written mid- and end-of-February February is filled with ugly and nothing to show for it.

Super-Secret Post Originally written end of January I’m someone who has been involving, um, everyone in this process, but yesterday, today, and tomorrow morning, I’m all alone. After I thought I had a No for January, suddenly it looked like Not a No. My period is now 4 days late. It’s never even been 3 days late before. But, after already reporting No to my husband and The One Friend Who Is In The Loop, I don’t want to retract […]
