And just in time for ICLW, too!

Thanks to the fabulous Aly at Bridge Work Blog Design, Meier Madness has a whole new look! I am quite the fan... are you? Aly manages to do a great job at inexpensive blog design, all while figuring the in's and out's of her second high-risk pregnancy (which she talks about over at The Infertility Overachievers). She caught me right in the middle of the Clomid Crazies, and put up with me without a single complaint... more than I can say for Dr Boy :) Seriously though, she's awesome, and won't stop until you LOVE your design. Check her out! And grab my button! I heart it.


As for MY infertility overachieving, my body continues to toy with me. I've been having some interesting pre-AF-like cramping since Saturday, and let's just say that since yesterday, I could make my own omelet (TMI? Sorry 'bout that!). I've been putting off starting the provera since I thought maybe I'd cycle on my own, but the addition of the EWCM makes me think my body just tried to o whatever pitiful follies it decided to produce. Oh well. Provera will commence Thursday morning, just in case. After another "glutton for punishment" morning pregnancy test. Good think I bought a bajillion of them for cheap. Based on last time, that should put CD1 on Sunday the 7th, with a good window on either end to go in for my baseline ultrasound and to get my protocol. Which would loosely end my TWW somewhere around Sept 4th-ish. Not that I'm an obsessive compulsive planner or anything...

Thanks for all the menopur advice, too! I'm pretty sure that's what I'll be on. Plus the hCG trigger. And an insemination. Oh boy oh boy!


  1. two months ago I saw lots of EWCM and I thought THIS IS IT. I'M OVULATING ON MY OWN! ... and nothing happened... and then a month later I got my period. So. Maybe I was ovulating on my own, and my egg was taking the scenic route. If I had a box full of pregnancy tests I probably would have taken a lot more than I already have!

  2. I'm loving the new look!

    And ps, I don't think there is such a thing as TMI on here. :)

  3. I love the omlette comment - when I was stimming I told a couple people that "It's a hen house up in here!" and no one got it. I think all the eggy metaphors are confusing for the non-IF-ers out there. :)


You know you want to tell me how ridiculous I am...
