I talk about ttc a bit with a few of my friends at work who are both curious and supportive. Only a little though, most of the good stuff I save for blogging.
So the other day I was re-reading ‘confessions of the other mother’ in a corner at work and one my workmates came up and asked me what I was reading. I showed her and she kind of gave me a confused look and asked what other mother meant. Without giving it much thought I just said ‘you know – like me.’ She was still confused so I followed up with ‘well K will be the bio mum and I’m the non-bio’. She was even more confused and I suddenly realised that I’ve become so familiar with all these terms and acronyms that really the majority of the world knows nothing about. To make it even worse, work interrupted and I never got to explain it to her properly lol.
We’re still not sure if we’re going ahead with February’s cycle or not, K still has to see what Mr Chinese Medicine Man thinks about it, but I have to say I’m getting excited about the possibility of trying again.
This break has been a very good thing, and has given K a chance to have a real holiday from both school work and ttc work which has been great. In a way it would be good to wait until April to try again, that would give K a lot of freedom over the next couple of months to rough and tumble it on her school camps, and we’d be that much further down the healthy lifestyle road.
On the other hand, it seems like so much longer to wait! We’ve already decided that if we do try in Feb, and it’s not a BFP, we won’t try again until April.
CD1 should be in about a week or so, so we have a bit more time to decide.
Thanks for the comments on my last post – I’m tracking more out of interest than to use for real cos the clinic will take care of that when it comes to it. Well technically tracking – I still haven’t actually got in the habit of it but that’s ok.
