post #341 of 351
Tear and Nannette,
I can't wait to hear how your RE appts go. I had a referral for one just before I got preg, but since I don't have insurance I really can't do anything about it.
I'm so sick of hearing about my 39 yr old eggs anyway.


I'm so tired lately...my son just gave up naps and now goes to bed earlier but wakes up at 5am. Plus there is the stinkin' time change, annnnnd the fact that I am trying not to drink coffee...sighhh I feel like I slept on the lawn last night. So I forgot to temp because he woke up this morning (and yesterday) screaming "I want a piece of gum!!!" He sleeps with me so this is of course 6 inches from my face.
What? Right....OK gum...Dad's out in the living room, he has gum, bye don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.

Please talk me down?

I got my temp rise indicating O on cd15 (totally normal for me) even though my EWCM pre-and-post-then was scarce and barely stretchy. None of the copious amounts I have had months prior.

I decided not to temp during my trip (it would, by far, not have been accurate. I have missed sleep, slept at odd times, gotten little sleep and then overslept with an extra warmer in the shape of my very loving and cuddly DF) and I am finding this is not a good thing...

Remind me... because I KNOW better... that you can get O pains after you O... and that semen can LOOK like the longest, stretchiest EWCM you have EVER seen even over 12 hours after the last time you DTD (DTD around 7am, got the stretchy semen out of me around 9 or 10pm, just before bedtime)

I really know better, honestly I do... I shouldn't want to be wrong even... but I want to! I want a baby soooooo bad... but not NOW. This is the worst timing we could POSSIBLY have. I do NOT want to go into labor while saying our vows!!!

eh, worst things have happened. I personally think if you want a baby do it. It's not like if you are knocked up on your wedding day your guests would think anything less of you and if they do, well that is just none of their business. I woud however get on his insurance ASAP if you do find yourself with an "accident." I feel like I am pushing you to get married on paper .

sleep has been rough in our house the past couple nights as well. hope you get some more rest soon!

MP, i have to agree w/pinokoi - what a great dilemma to have! it must be better to know that being together might bring about an oops than wondering how he is, across the globe. and you never know - maybe you O'd when you first thought and these other things are odd coincidences. it has happened! but we'll see soon, and don't worry - things will be great either way. =)

afm, cd5. been feeling pukey and exhausted throughout AF. i can barely deal with either symptom - they're awful. what the heck? last time this happened, i had a cyst that first made me think i was pg. an ultrasound from post-O last cycle shows i'm cyst-free, though, so why this extreme nausea and fatigue? mean body, making me feel pregnant just for kicks. i would test if i hadn't just had AF and lowered temps. siiiigh.

edit: okay so i used one of my millions of ICs and tested, JUST so i wouldn't let myself think about it anymore, and i found myself STARING at the place the line would be if there was a line. at first it was so obviously white, and then i stared at it until i was about cross-eyed and was just looking at the dent. if i'm doing this at CD5, this does not bode well for my 2ww. what is WRONG with me anyway? good lord...

I have SO been there. There's nothing wrong with you (says the obsessed lady on the other end of the computer)

afm - oh no, swine flu? Could be....shakes, chills, deep chest coughing, and 100.9 fever hit today. that's not too high, but....I have five kids out every day this week, and two confirmed swine flu cases among my students. aaaargh!!! And for the weekend, too! I hope I don't have to miss my appoitnment on Monday!

Tear That's awesome! I'm excited that you have an appointment- I think it really helps just to have a plan sometimes. Teachers are planners after all I can't wait to hear what your doc says! Good luck, and try not to catch the flu!!

Kel and Jessica

Enigo It's sooo hard to sleep with them when they get to age 5 and beyond. (DS finally asked to sleep in his own bed when he started K-THANK GOD) Feet in your stomach and face and elbows everywhere. I would wake up some nights so pissed at lack of sleep that I walked to the guest bedroom and let my DH deal with it! No wonder you felt like you slept on the lawn! Hope you can catch up this weekend.

Mae- I'm with Lauren!

YYYM I've POAS during AF- I think everyone has! It's not crazy- it's been known to happen dammit. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

AFM- Ok, so I had my appointment this morning. It lasted for about 2.5 hours. It was awesome! You're pretty much babied (no pun intended) the entire time. Met with the Nurse in her office to go over the health history and make small talk, then she brought us into the RE's office, where she kinda did the same thing, and started with the basic tests- She took me into the exam room, and did a Vag. Ultrasound, (I have a beautiful uterus apparently, there was lots of ooing and ahh-ing over it, a whole heckofalot of good that it's doing me) Ovulating from my right ovary this month (in the next 2 days, which is exactly what I told her lol) HOWEVER, the left ovary looks like PCOS, though she said I didn't present with any of the symptoms. She had me do a bunch of blood tests, all hormone ones, and then I'll do the fasting tests including the PCOS testing on Monday morning. I'll have the results on Wednesday- I can just call in, and they'll leave me a message. I will have an HSG done on CD 8 of this coming cycle (about 2 weeks), and then meet with her again on December 7th for my follow up. Depending on the results, she will probably prescribe something and we'll lay out a strategy. I'm so relieved. Even though I don't have answers, I feel like we made some progress taking this first step. *whew* ok, done thread hogging!

I hope you ladies have a fabulous fabulous weekend!!!
post #349 of 351
WOW! so much activity has happened since my little explosion! I hope that no one took offense to that, especially you, HulaJenn, we get a little defensive around here sometimes... I really do value your input, experience and advice here at MDC. seriously.

Nanette- about your RE today!! It sounds like you have a GREAT practice. mine basically is a blood test only type place, and unless you dont respond to clomid, they dont do the HSG, or the scope or anything... anywho, I am relieved for you. and woo hooo for a beautiful U! I bet it takes one or two cycles. Sometimes the stress of just wondering if something is wrong is enough to keep a nice BFP at bay.

Tear- PLEASEDONTGETSICK PLEASEDONTGETSICK PLEASEDONTGETSICK! I hope you are well for your appt with the specialist- those things are hard to come by!! at least the weekend will give you some time to cuddle up with chicken broth, hot tea, a vaporizer (what my mom calls them from when i was little- maybe it's a "humidifier" these days?) and some good girly movies... that always makes me feel better.
I've missed your updates, but i'm glad you and DH are spending time together! he was away for a while!

enigo- I'd go for it if I were in your position. I didnt after the MC, bc the doctor told me not to... (although I did have a D&E so maybe that's why) but only for one cycle, and even then, I was sad that we didnt at least try. I was in no mood though. If you're in the mood, and it feels right, I'm with the other girls here- go for it. and as for the spinning class incident- I got that twinge of panic in my tummy when i read the title of that song- so glad it was dark in there. you are SO strong. i just have to tell you that again.

YYYM- maybe we can just continue this thread for now, since there arent many people moving around here anyway...? as long as Lis doesnt mind? It would be interesting if this was the cycle for you- since it'd be within your theoretical deadline. I'd LOVE it if it worked that way for you!!! But, like you said, it's all a crapshoot- and the desired result would be delightful.. but accepting that it might not happen- well it just hurts even thinking about the possibility.
And- this is the first cycle in 4 cycles that I havent tested during AF. no joke. I take at least one test during AF, even if it's BAD... just because i think, well, it could be me this time who thought it was AF biut it was just breakthrough. we've all been there sometime! admitting we have a problem is the first step to recovery!!!!

Lauren- i can't BELIEVE it's time for your rhogam shot already!!! you are SO far along. WOW. that is well... it's just fabulous. please give us all the baby dust you can spare. we'll take it!

pinoikoi- so glad to *hear* that your appt went so well. Yay little beating heart.

Mae- i'm glad youhave these concerns now!! but, FWIW, I did also have lots of "lingering" fluids all day on weds from a tuesday night romp that strongly resembled EW. but, it still got my hopes up for a way earlier than early O! so, i guess I'm saying, it's possible that its O, but probably not what you hope for/hope not for. I am SO SO SO SO SO SO SO happy for you that your DF is back in your arms safe and sound!!! it must be wonderful. Now get off MDC and get back to making up for lost time!

AFM, I think tonight I will be sealing the deal that i will get pg soon. we are getting me a new car. (new to me) it is unnecessarily expensive. it is more car than I need. it is impractical. and we will barely scrape by if i were to get pg and stay home with a child anytime within the next year. (which is really the only option for me mentally- to stay home- at least right now...) BUT, i'm just SO DONE with going without things because of the What-If factor. it goes against the financial goals we set for our 'having a family' finances. ((it even partially goes against my desire for simplicity, but it will be a car that we have forever- until it dies!)) but we've been living like that for over a year now... and it's tiring and really boring. it was fun at first, thinking that we were being so productive in plannign for our child's future... not anymore. so, now i will live like a semi-youngish person with a 2 income household who isnt planning to have kids. and hopefully, be surprised.

(but, did i perhaps jinx myself that it has a third row?!?!) I told DH that if within one year we're not at least expecting, then we have to take up a hobby that requires a lot of "gear" - camping, kayaking and mountaineering come to mind, but suggestions for anything else that would be more appropriate for my lazy a$$ but still require lots of gear are welcome!! and we live in the very non-rugged mid atlantic... ha! so, mountaineering is totally not even possible.
