There is No Answer

John Doe didn't say anything one way or the other. Well, that's it for this cycle, then. I'll probably ovulate in a week to ten days, and we'd need this time to hammer out some of the details and sign the papers.

I'm going to make an appointment today with a gynocologist and get the bloodwork done that I need to register with my sperm bank of choice.

Speaking of sperm banks, I find it hilarious that the ads that pop up at the top of my blog are for sperm banks. I actually looked through the other blogs I frequent and turned my eye to the top to see what ads were there. They were all innocuous--"Blog and Make Money," "A Great Way to Blog," "Gum Care While You Sleep," and "Bachelorette Party Guide." But what do I get? "Sperm Donors and Banking." C'est la vie.


  • Sorry your evening didn't produce an answer for you. I understand your frustration. 11 years of infertility, and when I least expected it, and had given up on it . . . it happened. Strange.

  • I hear ya, R. Thanks for the comment. Your experience actually happens a lot. I know the Bread Winner's aunt had given up on conceiving #2 and was going to adopt. As soon as she gave up, she got pregnant. Unfortunately, it would cost me a small fortune to try for 11 years. Sperm: $225, Shipping: $140. Since my doc wants two samples availabe for each insem, that's $690 a month. Thank god my health insurance covers the doctor's visits. I know lots of people who aren't that lucky. This process is the first and only time in my life where I see a CLEAR benefit to being straight LOL.

  • It’s 11:00 in the morning and your energy is waning. Minutes seem to tick by like hours and your mind feels foggy. You’ve still got six more hours to look alert and act productive and get over separation anxiety in dog, so how do you cope with the afternoon blahs? Follow these six tips!

    1. If you have a job that involves sitting at a desk all day or staring at a computer screen, take five minutes to stand up or lean back, close your eyes and stretch, especially in your shoulder and leg areas. Being seated all the time can make your whole body feel stiff and sleepy. A good stretch session helps limber up your body and gets the blood flowing again.

    2. Avoid the tempting lure of caffeine or sugar-laden foods such as coffee, tea or chocolate. Caffeine may perk up your energy levels temporarily, but it also has a bad habit of leaving you sluggish after the effect has worn off. Instead, choose whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables to give your body the fuel it really wants! Eating healthier will boost your mood, elevate your alertness, change separation anxiety in dog and make you feel better all day long.

    3. Along with healthier foods, take a quick 10-15 minute walk during your lunch break. Just a few minutes will give you a burst of energy that refreshes you and makes you feel more alert – while burning off your lunch calories in the process!

    4. Sometimes, afternoon slumps can be your body’s way of telling you that it needs something. You may be feeling tired if your blood sugar is low (which happens especially after the effect of those caffeine and high sugar foods has worn off!). Packing a low calorie snack like graham crackers, granola, fruit or vegetable slices can give your body a boost and keep you from feeling hungry in the late afternoon and caving in to the urge to devour the entire contents of the vending machine after work!

    5. Drowsiness is often a sign that you’re not getting enough water. Drinking more water throughout the day not only helps keep you awake, but also keeps you from feeling those hunger pangs that inevitably creep up in mid-morning. Taking a large sports bottle that you can drink from throughout the day is a great way to get your recommended eight glasses a day as well!

    6. If afternoon fatigue is a recurring problem, it may be a side effect of medications you are taking. Allergy pills are well known culprits, as are some blood pressure and anxiety/depression medicines. Don’t try to circumvent these effects with caffeine, otherwise you’ll overload your body with stimulants while it’s already trying to deal with drowsiness, and you’ll feel mentally and physically exhausted. Instead, try a short 15-20 minute catnap. You’ll be surprised how refresh you’ll feel when you wake up! (Don’t try this at work though – I know it’s tempting!)

    If you follow these tips on a regular basis, you’ll not only make it through the afternoon blahs, but you’ll also feel better physically and mentally, sleep better at night, and wake up rejuvenated and re-energized the next morning. Make it a GREAT day! separation anxiety in dog
