Change of plans

Stress has caused us to change plans on conception. At least, that's the theory. My wife has been going through some stress, and deliberately trying for a boy has only added to it. Consequently, we think that she hasn't ovulated yet.

Another prospect is that the test strips are not working correctly, or we aren't doing them correctly. And I know what you are thinking, how many ways can you pee on a stick? It's not the technique that is in question, but rather the amount of water my wife has been drinking. Apparently it can be too diluted to detect.

So, where does this leave us? Well, we're going to start trying to time it a few ways, and stop trying to choose a gender. It's not like we want one over another in a major way, we just wanted to pick to pick. We'll probably start predicting the cycle via CM and just general calendar prediction.

So we may have missed it this month, or not. We'll know in about a week or so I guess. At least there's lots of trying going on...
