Cycle Day 1, aka Mr. M's birthday

Well, it's that time of the month again. (Actually yesterday - didn't have a chance to post.) AF showed up right on schedule, just in time for Mr. M's birthday. I was so hoping that I could add to his birthday card, "Happy," but not this time. So we start cycle 20 and keep on praying. (I was also really, realllllly hoping to not have to do the SA, but that's on our schedule for this month now.)

I could have also subtitled this post "Why I Love My Husband." If it were me, and CD1 fell on my birthday, I would have been a total puddle the entire day, crying into my birthday cake...but Mr. M is just so faithfully cheerful! He was disappointed, for sure, but he still had such a joyful attitude - he thanked me profusely for his birthday breakfast of cinnamon bun mug cake and a smoothie.

Mine looked nothing like this - they didn't explain how to get that swirly look! I guess with a frosting bag? Anyway, way too much work for 6:30 a.m. But my version still pleased my husband's sweet tooth! =)
He oohed and ahhed over the super sappy card I got him, he loved his gift of a new board game (Last Word), and he enjoyed our dinner together downtown. It was so cute - they brought him a cup of ice cream with a candle since it was his birthday, and he let the little girl at the table next to us blow it out...he's such good dad material! I don't know what I'd do without his cheerfulness - he makes me laugh, even on CD1! Despite 19 disappointing months in a row, my heart still had a swell of gratitude and happiness for the amazing man I married. Happy birthday to my best friend in the whole world!



  1. Oh, I'm so sorry! Sometimes I really would like to ask God about His timing.

    The SA - ugh. So awkward, I will be praying for good results so you can check that part off.

    Keeping you in my prayers.

  2. Happy Birthday, Mr. M!
    I wish you had better news this month. I am so sorry. Praying for you this month and that darn SA to have good results!

  3. Ugh, AF! She arrived for me too yesterday! I will keep you in prayer. Happy birthday Mr. M!

  4. She has THE worst timing!!!

    Hoping the SA gives some answers
