So maybe something is working?

So it's CD9 here at the House of Cotta, (not that I've been counting or tracking or nothin') and I happened to notice something interesting yesterday.


A rare phenomenon, last seen spontaneously & non-RE-assisted, months & months & months ago, so we're all gonna hope that we hit the mark this time people.


Mr.Cotta has made his "sacrifice" for the cause and I have lain back and thought of England, a couple of times. I'm going for an ultrasound tomorrow if they can fit me in, otherwise it will be Tuesday, just to confirm it wasn't a random bizarre psychotic episode, and I actually saw what I saw.

So IF I saw what I saw, and it wasn't just my imagination, I have some prometrium, and some baby aspirin, and hell, maybe we'll give this a whirl, right?

And we won't think about how lousy my eggs are whenever I ovulate earlier than CD12.



  1. You lost me with CD12 but I hope you keep us posted with what happens tomorrow Aurelia!

  2. I have all fingers and toes crossed for this cycle. Spinnbarkheit is a great indicator. I'd do the deed again and then maybe some, just to be sure of the timing thing. Need I say, I'm excited for you :)

  3. The mystery of life is what keeps things interesting. Here's hoping this time proves successful through and through...

  4. Fingers crossed!

    I didn't know what Spinnbarkheit meant - knew the concept but not it's special name.

  5. Wow. There's a name for everything.

    Crossing my fingers for you!

  6. crossing all crossable bits for you.
    And wow--you get to have an u/s for ovulation confirmation! The best I get is the LH test upon seeing spinnbarkheit and a progestorone test to confirm a week later.

  7. Oh, this is so exciting! Thanks for improving my vocabulary a bit too, even though I still don't think I know how to pronounce it.

  8. Crossing it all for you!

  9. I should really start using that term rather than EWCM. Good luck this month!

  10. I assume all the other signs are pointing in the proper direction, as well...good luck!
