Back to the task in hand...

Since I got the news of redundancy last Friday, my blogging mojo has been flagging somewhat. I'm trying to keep as positive as I can about my situation, but something tells me I might be starting an enforced career break in June. Hopefully it won't last all that long.

Anyway, on a more positive note, my good buddy Xbox has a beautifully written article in today's Irish Times. Well done X, for flying the flag for us infertiles. I have posted a link on a ttc board I frequent and the praise was very high indeed.

As for us, I have decided that we are going to try the Sperm meets Egg plan this month. That means starting action on CD8 (or later depending on when you ovulate), doing the deed every second day until you get a positive on an OPK, and then going at it three days in a row, break for one night and then one last go for the road. So the spare bed in my sister in law's house is going to see some action next week. I think we will be in need of a holiday after our holiday.

Maybe if you're redundant you can just relax ;-)

I have to laugh at your plan of action, we've gone through them all too, convinced this was the one.

May this be the one!

You can't beat a different bed for the occasional attempt.

(and thanks)

Ah romance ...

Hope the bed is well sprung.

If you have secrets on how to persuade your other half to participate in the Deanna Plan, do share them...

I just caught up on your week. Sorry about the redundancy...I hope something comparable comes along soon. Best of luck with the Sperm meets Egg plan...of all the dirty deed timing plans we've tried this is The D's favorite. TMI?

Hope the bed isn't one of the noisy kind!
If it is, then maybe you should buy your sister-in-law a pair of ear plugs first :-)

Apologies for the delay in commenting - I have been having (GRRR) server issues (GRRRR).

First of all, commiserations on your redundancy. Your positive attitude is inspirational, so congratulations as well, and best of luck.

Secondly, BEST OF LUCK, and try not to break the bed. H and I broke a bed once. Long story. But the spare bed is always the weaker bed...

I'm late to the bad-news party, and I'm so very sorry about the redundancy news. I feel you will be very employable, so I'll have my fingers crossed very tight for you on the new job front, as well as hoping that your sister's spare room bed has withstood the onslaught!
