Horrible timing

So I started a new cycle on September 13 and with this cycle I have taken Metformin to help with the PCOS, Clomid to help me ovulate, Prometrium to help with my progesterone deficiency and have cut out carbs to help with my PCOS - I'm praying that all of this stuff will in fact make me ovulate and we'll get pregnant this cycle...there's just one problem - I'm traveling to Indy on Thursday and DH will not be with me. I won't be returning until Sunday. That means no deposits (for lack of a better term) on CD 16 & 17 - we can have sex before I leave on CD15 and then when I return late on CD 18, but that's an 84 hour stretch with no, um, deposits, at a time that is right on for ovulation - what horrible timing!! I just thought of this last night and DH and I were talking about it. Wouldn't it be our luck that the first month that we actually get everything figured out that I would ovulate while we are not together.
Well, I think I came up with a solution that will work! (and no, this does not involve a turkey baster) I can usually always tell when I ovulate. I told my DH that if I ovulate on Friday or Saturday I will leave Miss O with my mom or his mom in Indy and we'll meet in Lafayette for a "nooner". Does that make us desperate? I'm guessing yes! I will actually drive an hour and 10 minutes and he will do the same so that we don't miss it. Then there was another question. Do we go to the Lees Inn in Lafayette and get a room? and waste $100 for 5 minutes? Nonsense! I drive a Magnum with seats that lay down and tinted windows! Perfect!!
Hopefully none of this has to take place - I'm praying that I ovulate sometime in the next 2 1/2 days and we don't have to worry about it, but if not we've got a plan!
Hopefully it's God's plan too - not the whole sex in the car thing, but getting pregnant with this cycle. That's where you come in! Please keep us in your prayers this week. Pray that God will finally give us the desires of our hearts and bless us with a healthy baby. Pray that if it's not in God's timing that we will find peace with this.

THAT'S HILARIOUS THAT YOU SAID THAT...I actually had that typed in my post and took it out! We think WAY too much alike!!

I'm praying for 2 things...

1.) You get pregnant in 2 1/2 days.

2.) That you don't need to have sex in the Magnum. :)

Well, I guess it could be kind-of fun though.....and a great story!

Just don't tell "Magnum" about it until he's older! ;)
