An early morning sort.

So my darling husband provided me with a sample this morning and, of course–despite my general “blah” feelings toward TTC right now because I can’t seem to ovulate–I put the sample in the test tube, made sure my EW wasn’t too cold (room temperature in my house is 68 degrees, so yeah…) added the EW on top of the sample (and here’s where it gets weird–it stayed on top the whole time–I could see it–but when I was staring at it, either my vision is all blurry because I’m so tired or everything turned the same color. Honestly. I blame being tired, though. I feel like I haven’t slept for a week 🙂 Good times!

So we’ve got 45 minutes left to see if the sort was successful. I’m starting to think I’m going to need to pasteurize some more eggs the rate my husband going 😀 hahaha It’s cool, though 🙂 At least this part is fun. No one else to fault for my body betraying me 😦 (yeah, I know–I’m probably being melodramatic and I’ll probably Ovulate soon.. I hope.. but ARGH the timing will be all off 😦 So sad.. so I’m going to vent about it)

And we have photos!

Albeit, crappy cell phone photos–but photos, regardless!

This cute little outfit's going under our mattress!

As I mentioned yesterday, I’d gotten a little pink panda outfit to go under our mattress.. well, this is it! It’s so adorable.. I really do adore Pandas!

I probably should have gone with something all frills and lace–but… well… I just couldn’t help myself, really…

This would be Chaos’ very first outfit 🙂

Let's see if we can pull this off...

Next, of course, we have to pasteurize the eggs. This was actually kinda freaking me out! I couldn’t figure how I’d get this done without actually cooking the eggs!

I sat basically on top of the stove (ok, not literally, obviously!) watching the thermometer. Despite hearing advice to take the pot off the burner when the 5 minutes were up, I opted to leave it on. First try pasteurizing… transferred them to a smaller pot to cool and…

Pasteurized Eggs!

Voila! Pasteurized Eggs!

Eureka! It worked!  Totally stoked about this 🙂 Especially considering I was totally freaking out about it!!!

Now just a couple more–these are pics of the incubator that my darling, patient husband put together 🙂

I think he did a smashing job 🙂 Granted, I was the one who went nuts with pink paint, but still! The only thing that’s missing–and that’s only because it hasn’t yet arrived–is the thermometer that goes inside! The dimmer capabilities will help us maintain temp easier 🙂 Now to figure out how to/if we should try to get it to “seal” better when closed.. hmm

ANYway.. that’s all for pics for today! Sorry about the poor quality 😦 I hope to have my camera up and running before we get down to the nitty gritty 🙂
