Au Naturale

My first natural cycle in a long time has been going great. I ovulated on day 14 (a first for me as I'm usually only able to do this on drugs). I'm now patiently waiting until test day. I can't help but hope that I'll get a bfp this cycle. There are so many stories of ladies doing cycle after cycle with REs/drugs and no results. Then, when taking a break their body does exactly what it's supposed to do and they go on to have a child. Wouldn't that be an awesome story?

In other news, I'm busy planning our trip to Asia. It's generally keeping my mind of ttc and that's a good thing. We are planning to go to both Malaysia and Thailand. I've not been to either so I'm pretty excited about checking out some new places--though a bit worried about the language barrier.

I've also sent out all the invitations for my sister's shower. I'm pretty much done with my responsibilities now and my mother is taking over from here. I'm glad I was able to do this for her even though it was emotionally pretty difficult. I'm not sure when we will get back to see her and the baby (she's due this summer). I'm sure that will be hard as well but for some reason my heart hasn't been as heavy lately. I think it's because I know that this will eventually work out for us. Someday we will have whatever child we were meant to have.
