Status Quo

Nothing new to report here. I'm still waiting for my monitor to tell me that it's time to start the humping marathon (humping...I haven't used that word since middle school). But, alas, the box is still showing that one little bar and it's CD17. Who knows what's going on?!

Doc's been asking me each day for a monitor status report. He's more worried than I am that we'll miss the window, particularly since he's going to a conference this week and will be out of town until next Monday. Poor guy...he's a lot more optimistic than I am that this unmedicated cycle will have a chance.

So, if we haven't been humping and I haven't been shooting up, what have I been doing with all my free time? Well, I'm a little bit behind in the tech curve, but I just bought a Palm Pre Plus from Verizon! Yes, my first smartphone. I've been holding out, hoping that the iPhone or the Nexus One would come to Verizon, but enough is enough. So, I finally broke down and bought the Palm Pre Plus.

I can't believe I've been missing out on all this technology! I've become slightly obsessed with downloading apps and patches, customizing and syncing songs, downloading new ringtones. It's been a great way to keep my mind off all this TTC. Granted, I thought about downloading a BBT chart (can't break old habits), but I was able to restrain!

Usually, Doc is the tech-obsessed one. It drives me crazy when we're watching something on TV and he's surfing the net and then every ten minutes he'll ask me to give him a recap on what just happened on the show. Now, the roles are reversed and it's me doing the asking. :)

I just have to say...I can never go back to a regular phone. And this is with a Palm Pre. Can you imagine me with an iPhone?!

"humping" - haha. reminds me that earlier this week my mother used the word "dweeb." blast from the past! haha.

congrats on the new device! i heart my iphone and don't know what i'd do without it. i have a 35 min underground subway commute so it certainly keeps me entertained.

hope you catch your window! you never know what can happen! :)

Yea for a new smart phone! What are your favorite apps so far? I have an ipod touch. Not quite a smart phone, but still fun. I hope you get to hump soon!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my iphone!!! Congrats on your new smartphone purchase.I'm pretty much in the same boat as you, doing a natural cycle, & waiting to meet with the RE to see what plan he has for us. Try to just enjoy it!!! :)

haha re: your comment. my mom forced me to drink all forms of nasty stuff as well. i have no idea what MIL is feeding me. she didn't brew it herself though - it's store bought. i don't trust anything that was made in china though (except my hubby), so i'm not drinking her tea.

my mom used to force both royal jelly and propolis on me when i was young. i'm not admitting to her now that i just started taking both, bc it'll legitimize her chasing me around the house during my childhood with nastay stuff~!!
