good news / bad news

the bad news is i'm not pregnant. the dreaded red reared her ugly head this weekend.

the good news is that my luteal phase was 13 days this month!!! yaaaaay! clomid has officially regulated my cycle enough to sustain a pregnancy. now i have to actually, you know, get pregnant.

anyways, i had a slight meltdown after christmas and hubby and i talked things out. we realized we're not in any rush and there's no reason to get so worked up every month. i'm going to stay on clomid and we're going to hope that it's successful in helping us conceive. it won't be the end of the world if it doesn't, although we honestly think it's our best chance.

in the meantime, we have a lot going on at home. if i had gotten pregnant in say, august, we'd probably spend my christmas bonus on a crib or put it away for future daycare expenses. but since we're not, we get to have our dream wood floors installed! since we moved in almost a year ago we've been talking about replacing the carpet in our living room. we chose floors this weekend and are hoping to buy them and all the additional supplies at the end of the month. we're planning to install them the first weekend in february.

oh well, like i said, we're going to play it by ear. for now we are going to work on finishing up our home because science knows we're not going to have the time or money to do it after we have a baby! :-)
