Past performance is no indicator

I was so proud of my darn tomatoes and saw them as a sign of the fertility of the whole household here. Well, when I came home today, I saw that my star performer, the only one that had already turned red, had been pecked to pieces by a bird.

Crap. Can't anything grow to fruition around here?

On another topic, or perhaps it is the same topic, I am in the 2ww of our natural cycle. I think our timing was good and hey, since we are hoping to get pregnant via IUI at this point, why wouldn't we hope to get pregnant the old fashioned way (or the natural way as my doc calls it). I mean, it's the same (albeit unwashed and uncounted) sperm and the same good or bad egg. All we're hoping for here is one good egg to meet with one good sperm. It could happen, people.

Like they say on those mutual fund ads, past performance is not an indicator of future performance. Our "did not get pregnant on our own" past does not mean we will not get pregnant on our own this time.

And besides, my breasts are sore which they never were before I started taking fertility meds. And I'm off the meds now.

Thank you for the HSG advice! I hope that your sore boobs are a good sign of something ;)

Hi, I'm new to reading your blog, but felt I had to comment. I have undetermined infertility with a touch of advanced maternal age thrown in for good measure. I'm hoping good things for you this cycle. Never say never to a natural pregnancy. I would ask though, have you considered or done acupuncture? If not, you may want to consider it in addition to western treatments. You can visit me at www.lovehopeandfaith.blogspot.com

It can happen, Egged! The whole thing's a lottery, and you have to play to win. Hang in there!
