Thank you for your kind words and support. Although I wish that nobody had to go through this, I am grateful for this space.

I am looking forward to hearing how your blood test goes Laura! I am hoping hard for you.

I was on a high this morning all because of a high temp at 11 dpo...but since my average LP is 13 it really means nothing...I've had a bit of cramping in my abdomen this afternoon and I'm pretty much in a funk. How can I go from being convinced I'm pregnant in the morning and by late afternoon like it'll never happen... I can't stand this much longer...

Lesliesara is right, it does effect you even when you are on the other side of it. It still makes me cringe when I see someone who got pregnant on the first try or didn't try for a month b/c they didn't want their baby to be born around whatever holiday. I thought my feelings would stop and it would all be good when I got my BFP, but it didn't. I'm still bitter sometimes at how easy it is for other people. And how naive I was to think that since it was so easy the first time it would be the same the second time around.

Thanks for the well-wishes Rochelle!

I guess one thing this teaches us is to not take fertility for granted. I always did. I thought I'd be able to get pregnant on the first try when I decided I wanted to. All the sex ed classes I had growing up taught us that if we didn't use condoms AND a back-up, we'd get pregnant forsure. Of course I think it's great to teach safety and protection to kids/teens, but the way it was taught really made me think it would be just that easy. I spent several months praying for AF to come when I was younger, and now I pray for the same thing but for a different reason. Nobody prepared me for this.

9 DPIUI today. My acupuncturist told me this morning that she's got a gut feeling that I WILL get pregnant and it'll be with twins. TWINS! She says her gut is usually right. Haha. Apparently, when I get pregnant finally, it'll be "something big".

I'm not opposed to twins...! 2 for the price of 1!

*stalk stalk* Hoping to heck for 1 or 2 for you LadyLaura! FWIW. there is a 'pregnancy pulse' that my acup. felt at my 7dp retrieval session...

Also, I was so happy to see EastBayK get her long-awaited bfp!

I continue to keep an eye out for you women, esp. those I have known from the beginning of this thread. Tiara, Blueyezz...sending you all the very best.

Apparently I have always had a great "fertility pulse". She didn't say anything about a pregnancy pulse today but then again, I'm not sure she WOULD have... she might not want to get my hopes up. She WAS very positive today about me definitely getting pregnant and thinking it'll be twins. And being the infertile that I am, I grasp onto anything that sounds good. :-P Most would think I'm crazy for being totally okay with twins, but I kind of feel that having gone through 3 years of ttc, I'm mentally sound enough to be able to handle it more than the random person who finds out it's 2 instead of 1. Not to mention this entire experience has taught me just how awesome my husband is and how I can totally rely on him for support and help.

Rambling... maybe it's the pregnancy pulse...

Hello, Ladies! I just stopped by Dollar Tree to pick up some cheapies...I plan to test tomorrow with FMU if my temp is up. I've felt great all day other than some pressure in my abdomen...I'm not sure if it's AF or not and when I think about testing, I want to throw up. I had a very busy day today. I left the house before 9 and didn't get home til after 3. I took on nap on the couch around 3:30 and didn't wake up til after 7...I always get really tired around AF anyway so...I guess we'll know in the morning!

So after last month's fiasco of going in on cd 11 and having already ovulated we did it earlier this time. Yesterday I was cd9 and had one 18mm follie on the right. Nothing on the left. At first he was going to have me trigger tonight for a tues iui, but by the time I got dressed he had changed his mind. So I triggered last night and will have my iui tomorrow morning. I stil can't believe how early it is. I'd love to know what causes your ovulation date to change that much. I feel crappy today, headache, bloating and very emotional. I think I'll take the whole day off tomorrow and come home for a nap after the iui. Hope everyone else is doing well this weekend.

Grapes when do you have a blood test?

Leslie, I am going to call my doc in the morning and try to get an appt as soon as possible. I hope given our history of almost 2 years TTC that he'll work me in right away.

for your iui!


Thank you all, ladies! I took another test with FMU and it was still very faint. So I pulled out the CBdigital and got a big fat "pregnant". I can't believe it!!! I'm going to schedule an appt as soon as possible. I still have no symptoms really...just get a really heavy feeling in my stomach and my stomach sort of feels kinda upset and I have to run to the bathroom after I eat. Hopefully that'll end soon!

Congratulations! I hope to see you in the Due Date Club soon!

11 DPIUI. I feel WEIRD today. Tired, gassy, heartburn, not nauseous but "full" feeling. I kinda feel like I'm getting sick, but it doesn't feel like I'm getting sick, either. Just this overall weird "something's not normal" feeling. I hope I'm not psyching myself out and causing this with my head! No spotting yet, either. I feel like I normally have started spotting by this time, because I usually fool myself into thinking it's implantation spotting...

Taking an HPT tomorrow morning... so far away...

Sorry! I'm not trying to make it harder. But I thought I would "feel" something but didn't. I missed breakfast Saturday and didn't eat lunch til 2 and didn't feel light headed or anything. I thought I was out... The biggest difference was a lack of spotting like you said. The only symptom is that every time I eat...since Saturday...it feels like I'm getting sick. My stomach is torn up and my stomach cramps and I have a slight backache. After I go to the bathroom I feel great. Kinda gross and weird at the same time...

Sorry i've not been around to post lately...i've been really busy with my new job and having 1 er visit and 2 other doctor appointments within days of each other. I started spotting and cramping really bad at the end of april and thought i was going to lose the baby. With the first u/s done at the er that night they found that i had blood build up between my uterus and the planenta. Then at the follow up appointment we found out that everything should be fine because the baby's heartbeat was 125bpm and was right on schedule with how big it is supposed to be. Then at my 8 week appointment (on already had planned) they did another u/s and the heart beat was up to 164 bpm and baby was measuring almost an inch long. I'm 9 weeks now and the only problems i'm having are the throwing up and the peeing all the time.

enough about me though...i just want to say i've got my fx for anyone who is waiting for test results and wanted to throw out a BIG CONGRATS!!!! to Grapesbunch and EastbayK. I know that you ladies are TOTALLY excited. Here's to great sticky vibes and a very healthy pregnancy.


I promise to stick my head in more once things have slowed down around work and the house. DD finished up her kindergarten year May 27th and I"m so excited for her. She is ready for summer to be here so she can play in the pool. I'm just ready for December 14th to get here so i can have a few weeks off work!!!


GOOD LUCK ladies!!! I really hope that everyone is able to graduate from here soon!!!!
