I have absolutely nothing exciting or dreadful going on…and that gives me nothing to blog about. I know you soooo want to keep reading after that..dontcha?!

This weekend I made myself sick on boiled peanuts. I love those little bastards…they are so good. It’s sinful and gluttoness (is that a word) but OH SO GOOD. We did this weekend completely red-neck. Boiled peanuts, fried fish, hushpuppies (all fried on the back porch), yum yum yum. We did work too, a little. Putting up fence is hard work, but the boys did most of it.

I had to reschedule the appointment with my new RE. CD1 was yesterday. I was hoping to not see CD1, but I knew it was for not. We did not use the most optimal days for TTC this month. Oh well, there’s always next month.

I cannot tell sometimes if my optimism is nice…or if I’m crazy. I can’t tell if I actually feel happy or if I’m just practicing the fake-it-till-you-make-it. Oh well, at least I’m not crying and that has to be a step in the right direction. I did have some crazy bad PMS, Friday and Saturday but it’s gone now…and other than cramps, I am feeling pretty darn good!

Girls I’m having a crisis of conscience. I don’t know how to chart (Creighton method) and I haven’t been to a Napro doctor, and I’m trying to figure out if I should. The closest actual Napro trained (either OB/GYN or RE, can’t remember, is about 3 hours away in Tampa). The REs are a dime a dozen here. Do I learn Creighton and drive to Tampa, or do I get started here with REs and see what happens? I’m torn. My issues are PCOS and hypothyroidism. My DH has low testosterone (due to LH and FSH deficiencies). What to do, what to do?!

I’m excited to see all the good news still popping up in blog land. It’s AMAZING!


  1. get ye to a napro doctor and run from the re's. ;)3 hours is doable in one day!

  2. Hello. I stumbled across your blog via other blogs. I noticed that you were considering driving to Tampa for a Napro doctor? I'm assuming you are talking about Tampa, FL and not Tampa, Ohio. :) I see her. She is actually in St. Pete. If you want some info on her you can email me at ktmathewson at gmail dot com. Just a heads up. She is a non-practicing doctor who is Napro trained so she is only really a consultant. She also will not see you until you have at least 2 months of Creighton Charting under your belt. Hope this helps. :)

  3. Chart, chart, chart!!

    My three cents.


    I tried going the conventional route and all I got was a push for IVF. Three hours is nothing when you're looking at your overall health!!!

  5. napro and chart. wouldn't have two babies without it! I found it the fastest way to the bottom of my problems. You can learn Creighton over the phone in some cases.
