WEHRLI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO excited for you! That is so wonderful!!! Sticky beans to you~ so happy!!!!

Scarlett~ I'm with everyone else that this is implantation for you. It's going to be three in a row I just know it. Such wonderfulness!! Send the good vibes our way!!!


Nothing going on here~ I peed this morning and got a faint opk line, but that's likely the femara. I'll opk again tomorrow and we'll see what happens. I'm trying to keep my hopes up but feel really low and discouraged. But I'm so happy for you all!!! Keep it going!!!

Wehrli: WOOT! That is amazing! Congratulations!! Stick stick stick stick...



Miss Scarlett: I know very little about temp drops, but I do know that it's not over until AF shows up, so hang in there!

AFM: The cramping is weird. Sometimes it's intense, but it only lasts like a minute and then it's fine. Last night, I was convinced AF was coming early, progesterone-in-oil shots be damned. I don't know what to think about it. It's disheartening, because it really feels like AF. But it's also fairly early for me to feel cramps like this. And I don't think I've ever had menstrual cramps at 5DPO (which is when these cramps started). Since TTC, I've only started early once, and it was the first cycle. Ever since then, it's been on time or a couple days late. I know being pregnant feels a lot like impending AF, but I'll be honest, I get more pessimistic as the time ticks by.

I had the choice of getting a beta done at the NP's office, with results Saturday morning, but DP doesn't want to think about it over the weekend. So I'm going to see if my PCP will do a quantitative beta tomorrow at my checkup - she has to do bloodwork anyway for my thyroid, so it would be nice to get it done then. But those results wouldn't come in until Monday. I'm going to most likely POAS tomorrow morning (11DPO) and see what happens. I inadvertently bought those CRAZY FR HPT that tell you SIX DAYS before your missed period. I am inclined to be suspicious of claims like that...

Other symptoms to speak of: I feel like I'm running a little warmer than normal. The weather has finally cooled down here, but I just feel warm. I've also been having vivid dreams - last night, I had a dream that involved a massive amount of fire and the ocean. None of these are dead ringer pregnancy symptoms, obviously - and in a non TTC month, I might not even notice. The cramping is the biggest thing, and something I haven't noticed as early before.

Sorry for not more personals - I'm getting to the very-anxious portion of my TTC cycle. I hope Miss Scarlett and I both have great news tomorrow.

5gb - fwiw my dp had cramping like you describe when she took progesterone supplements - it is apparently a well-known and documented side-effect. on her bfp cycle she had some mild ones and then uterus stretching ones as the pregnancy progressed.

of course yours could also be due to quads implanting. joking!

i have to say that being on progesterone supplements of any kind is a complete mind***k. your temps go up, you feel flushed and nauseous, you are tired, you get cramps etc... it is basically mimicking pregnancy symptoms. it's hard to do but you really have to discount all of it and just wait on the beta test or to poas.

i do think with 8 follicles that you have to have at least ONE stick, right? fx for you and miss scarlett to join the bfp wave!

I did think of that... was your DP on the shots? I feel like I had more side effects when I was on the suppositories last month. I know it can totally be the PIO, but everything so far has been less extreme with the oil, even though it's a stronger dose of progesterone. Gah! I don't know. It totally could be the oil, or a million babies in my uterus.

Sick of waiting.......

You're not being nosy at all I could talk about birth all day long lol I had an amazing birth - exactly what I wanted except for one thing - our hot water tank ran out of hot water when trying to fill up the birthing pool...so no water birth. I ended up giving birth in our bedroom on the floor. My labour was very short (I thought it was a bit longer at first but have since gone back and read my emails that day and DPs notes about contractions) - about 3 hours of intense labour. But I pushed for 3 hours which was exhausting....DD was 9lb 7oz though so it makes sense that it took that long lol Next time I hope to be in better shape too - I was SO tired even with such a short labour. No complications, small tear, 2 midwives and 2 doulas attended. I would definitely do it again!!

Thanks so much MissScarlett...you were right!!!

I finally got a positive OPK today (CD15) ...I did have some ewcm last night but a negative OPK...this morning there was more EWCM and I got my positive OPK. So we insemed with 2 vials tonight...and we will do another tomorrow night. Myplan of 12hrs-12hrs-12hrs flew out the window...DW thought that it would be better to do two tonight and then the last vial 24 hrs later. I hope that we are making the right decision.

Gelly-- OH GOOD! I'm SO SO SO happy for you! Way to go Momma! You trusted your body & it didn't fail you. Now we just have to let it finish the job! I think your insemination schedule sounds great. Looking forward to your BFP in two weeks!!!!
