Clearblue Fertility Monitor

So... as the year draws to a close I am thinking a lot about my resolutions.. 
Obviously I would love to conceive in 2011... hopefully early on and so I've been on the research trail looking for things to speed up the process. Now I've come across the Clearblue Fertility Monitor before on BabyCentre and people seem to rave  about it but it's pretty pricey and I didn't want to shell out the cash unless I though we needed the help. It's officially 6months+ since we started trying and we've come across obstacles that I'd like to think we've conquered but I still can't sit around and wait. I need to feel like I'm doing SOMETHING! We won't know if Lee's procedure in November actually affected his fertility until he has another test in February so I think I will wait until we see the results to pay the £99.99 (rrp) for the CBFM. After all if the embolisation made no difference to his count then there is probably little point in spending money on attempting to conceive naturally when I expect we will be told our chances are slim.
If the tests are good I think I'm going to make the purchase though.
I've heard so many good things from other couples TTC I've met online that I don't know if I can afford NOT to try it. Over Christmas I've felt broodier than ever and I am so frustrated all the time.. maybe if nothing else this would give me something to occupy me. Some people have great results and you never know.. I could be on here in a couple of months time plugging this wonder machine available at all good chemists to anyone who will listen but in the meantime I am just waiting to see how our first little problem is doing... then we'll know where we are. I will of course keep you updated.
Thankyou for your continued support and for being genuinely lovely people who pick me up whenever I'm feeling low. Merry Christmas to you all and I hope you all have a fabulous time with whatever family you have over the festive season.

Another frustrated month...

So I had a lot of hopes pinned on a christmas positive.. But alas it's not to be! As usual I took an unecassary pregnancy test the day before I am due and as usual I got a big fat "not pregnant" result!

I bought some ovulation predictor kits online to test last month but I didn't find my peak. That bothered me after last months early period which according to google means I failed to ovulate... Ugh!
Just as The sperm problem is dealt with the eggs refuse to play ball! I feel like we made a real concerted effort but nothing is working! I'm beyond frustrated at this point! I know that the docs wont go into any fertility investigation until at least a year I just feel like I'm wasting my time. What scares me most is.. What if we do have to wait the year out and what if we do have to go through IVF or similar... I'm just assuming if it gets to that point i'll conceive... But it's not guaranteed! I never thought this would happen to me! How do people try for years? How do they do it?
