Congrats Papa!

•Papa – I guess it’s time to look at that apartment!!!! Such wonderful news you’ve gotten today!!! Congratulations!!!!!:c arrot:ba nana
•Erthe Mama – Did DP end up using that test you put behind the toilet? Has the crying fest gone away?
•Lyndzies – I think the way you told DP was cute! Sorry to hear that your appointment didn’t go so well, but woohoo to a blaring test afterwards.
•J on Planet – Any updates?
•Maxk – That can be implantation spotting, try not to worry too much!
•Coco – Your temp went back up, how are you feeling?


QOTD – We haven’t quite figured out the day care situation. It was going to be a nanny, but we’ve had a lot of changes at home, so I might need a nanny, or possibly just a mother’s helper. The next year will tell us a lot so we just have to wait and see. At worst, the kiddo could be in daycare for a little while.

AFM: Friday @ 8pm OPK -, Saturday am OPK +, Sunday am OPK -, horrible ovulation pains between 6am and 10 am, after that I couldn’t differentiate between the o pain and the cramps. I had my IUI this morning at around 8:40, my cervix was wide open, and our sample was great, we even got to see them swimming under the microscope. Are hopes are way up.

ETA: Question - They want to check my progesterone and gave me the option of coming on Friday or next Monday. Any suggestions for one over the other?

I'm still staring at the stick every five minutes.

It warns me in the package that it will only stay on for 24 hours, so maybe I'll have to keep a photo of the stick and the embies in my pocket to get me through 'til the beta # comes in, about 48 hours from now.

I did go see the apartment! It's PERFECT for me, but there are a dozen or so applicants in line ahead. Still, I put in an app, with lots of good references, and we'll see what happens.

Thanks, everyone, for all the well wishes! I'm going to wait 'til the betas come in to join the Q & P thread.




Does anyone want to take over the thread for February? It's a lucky, lucky, job!

Of course, there was probably another stick in that package...

But yeah, I took a CBE digi on Thursday AM and the "pregnant" was gone by the next morning, and another last night (I'm sure it' going to disappear any second).

I pee'd on 2 FRER so I can stare at the lines whenever I need reassurance!

Can't wait to hear the result of your beta on Tuesday! I'll be getting mine tomorrow. A-holes didn't schedule me for a repeat because I don't think they believed I was pregnant. I asked them to run prog w/ the first, but they may have ignored that request too.

I think I may be on the search for a midwife very soon...

Thread crashing/coming out of lurkdom (although I should probably join this thread anyway) to congratulate Papa - so happy for you


post #256 of 366
Having congratulated Papa. Can I join this thread?

Briefly - DP and I have a DD who is 2y6m who DP carried using anonymous donor sperm from Xytex. Now it's my turn, we've tried 4 unmedicated IUIs using donor sperm from CCB, but this upcoming cycle I ordered some ICI from Xytex (different donor than DD's donor) and are waiting to inseminate. We're going to try a 2-3 cycles of at home insemination as I'm sick of going to the office to poked and prodded and hurt.

FWIW DP is 43 and I'm 38 so we're no spring

Please could I be added to waiting to O
