Clomid Confusion*

This month cannot go any slower.

As far as I know, we are in the 2ww, but I'm not totally 100% positive on that one. I've been doing OPK's for the past week and my frustration keeps rising. I THINK there was some change or maybe an indication of an LH surge on cd10 ... TEN! That's so early!

But I'm not totally positive if that was actually it.

So I have no idea what's going on.

I switched up the OPK's for the week [hello, smiley face!] so we will see if anything pops up in the coming days. I've heard so many mixed reactions to OPK's during a clomid cycle -- that they work, that they don't work, etc -- so who freaking knows. Either way, it's annoying.

In other news, my darling husband took our deck apart this weekend so that we could build a patio instead. And SURPRISE -- we found SO. MUCH. DAMAGE. Rotting wood, water damage, everything that you can think of on that side of the house. M has a phone appointment with our insurance company to see what they will or won't cover. It's only on the one side of the house, and the reason is because they don't put GUTTERS on the homes here. So for years, all the water from rain was coming off the roof and just sitting on the deck, seeping into the wood underneath the house. We put gutters on last year, but obviously it was too late. Luckily the damage is only on one side.

We're also going to get a siding quote, since so much of the siding is rotten underneath where the deck was. So even if fixing the water damaged wood wasn't going to be expensive, then the siding will be. We're kind of at the point where we are going to have to take out a loan regardless, so we might take out a little extra and do some other much needed upgrades [like the windows].

Who knows.

So that's that!

With that said, this was the closing song from last night's episode of Big Love. I LOVED that show the entire time it was on & am so sad to see it go. I also love Natalie Maines & love this song. Love all around! I will definitely be purchasing this on iTunes tonight! Enjoy!

I had trouble with OPKs while I was on Clomid and also switched to the smiley face and felt much better about them since there was no looking at the line and wondering 'is that darker?'
Good luck!

I remember that well! It I ended up getting the Answer 20 pack, so I could test a bunch (I *might've* been the slightest bit anal about making sure I caught the surge. Heh.) Even still, it was tough to read those lines. I wish you the best of luck, dear lady. I'm looking forward to hearing YOUR good news.
