Tequila time

Im not pregnant. spotting yesterday, cramping today and a negative pregnancy test. Blah. Im trying to not let it spoil my vacation. Not thrilled at the prospect of taking more clomid, but I cant afford another thousand dollar IUI cycle at the moment. You might wonder what I am doing in mexico if Im so broke. Good question. Its an attempt at finding a little balance and not letting my infertility struggle take over every stinking part of my life.

In happier news, Brian is having the time of his life down here. He is busy channeling his inner Steve Irwin. His favorite activity has been watching the many geckos in our apartment compete for juicy insects in the evenings.Hes on nearly constant lookout for Iguanas. I see a river boat trip in search of crocodiles in our future.


  1. I'm so sorry your cycle failed.

    I'm glad you are spending some time (and money) nurturing yourselves and having a holiday. Not letting IF rule your life is the most important thing, and sometimes tough to achieve.

    Enjoy your tequila!

  2. Oh, hun, I'm sorry. Enjoy your vacation. The real world will be here when you return. Until then, try to enjoy this precious time away.

  3. I'm sorry. :( I'm glad you're taking the time to get away from it all. Hoping you'll have pleasant memories of your trip even if you have to share it with the lizards!

  4. Aw, damn it. I'm sorry this cycle didn't work. I hope you're getting some well deserved distraction, and whatever perspective and balance there is to be had.
