The Big O

No not that O girls! lol I mean Ovulation. I think it happened. Maybe it happened. This Chrighton class is really great, and I have never checked out my mucus pattern like this before. Doing the NFP I was always waiting for my temps to rise and fall, and they never did, so E and I never were able to plan our "relations" around the time of possible ovulation. But here I am checking my mucus and for the past 3 days I've got fertile type mucus! OMG!! I never thought that I had any, but I really wasn't checking correctly. I am super excited about this. I mean I may have some really screwed up hormones, and nothing will come of this, but it's exciting to know that I do have some good mucus! On the other hand, its been 6 years and I have never conceived, and it can't be all just because of bad timing. So my hopes aren't up too high, but I've never been much of a Debbie Downer, so I'm a smidgen hopeful. :)

As Thanksgiving approaches I thought it would be a good idea to actually write out what it is that I am thankful for this year. It's been a hard year, but I think I am starting to find my way again.

I am thankful for my family
I am thankful that we were able to get out of our house with minimal damage to our credit
I am thankful for my parents for letting us live with them right now
I am thankful that I was able to find a good Dr. who correctly diagnosed my pcos
I am thankful for my IF support group here on these blogs :)
I am thankful for my husband
I am thankful for my step-son
I am thankful that I have food to eat and warm clothes to wear
I am thankful that E was able to find a job and that we can pay our bills
I am thankful to be alive
I am thankful for my faith

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! :)
