leslie: Congratulations!!!! Sending sticky thoughts your way!!

Brandy: I was MIA from the boards for a while and totally missed that you are expecting!!! Woo Hoo! Congrats!

AFM: Have started the TWW. Positives of the last few months is that I think my hormones have straightened out and I am ovulating regularly and on my own. Now it is just pray and wait...

I took the test at work and practically hyperventilated. Then I spent an hour trying to get my dh on the phone. He only works three blocks from me so I made him meet me and just showed him the test. Needless to say he is very happy. I went to the lab today and the beta was 777 which seems like a lucky number to me. I guess I'm due March 26. I'm still just shaking my head.

Thank you I hope that this TWW is the last one you have for a while!!! I'm so blessed right now. We had a scare at the beginning of my pregnancy and thought we were going to lose the baby but everything is better so far. I hope that everyone else is doing great and i'm still here to support all of you ladies!!!

Well, I started today.
Not that I really expected to have any chances this month anyway.
So, I go back to the RE tomorrow (a 4 hour trip total! UGH!) for a blood test. I think to test some hormone level...?
Then after that, we'll probably schedule the lap once all the bloodwork is back in.
I am starting a new pain med today, toradol, to see if it will work on my period torture. A bit concerned if there will be GI effects. (My GI system is already not working as well as it could)

Cheers to next month! And I'm so glad we've had some graduates! Needed that boost!

DH and I decided we're going to do something we've been wanting to do for a while. We've put it off because we didn't know when/if we'd get pregnant. So instead of actively TTC and seeking medical help, we're going to foster dogs from the south! We got one of our dogs from Arkansas in the spring of 2008 and it was such a wonderful experience. We're excited to get our first foster dog on Saturday August 7th!! Once I asked about it, it all seemed to fall into place and happen so fast! When the rescue group called our vet for a reference, the vet said she had been wondering when we'd take the step to do it! So apparently other people had been waiting for us to do it as well!!

I called the RE's office today to cancel our appointment. We're going to take the money we've been saving for possible medical expenses and use it towards the dogs and fixing up our house a little at a time. We need a new roof and new windows. We'd like to take down the press-board that's on the walls now and put up new drywall throughout the house and then paint. We'd also like to re-do the bathrooms and kitchen, the carpet needs to be replaced and the floor in the laundry room needs to be replaced. So we're excited to DO something instead of WAIT for something. We're not going to use protection or BC, so if something happens, something happens. And if not, we're okay with it.

Maybe there should be a Taking a Break section?

Yay!! So excited for you (just the same as when you got pg w/ Zara!!). Wishing you a happy, healthy 9 mos!!



Congrats, LeslieSara!!

afm: Supposedly cd55??? Spotted for about a week, 20 days ago - which I'm gonna guess was an actual attempt at af - because I'm all O pain-ish today. Who knows what's happening. Still fighting to maybe get GH from the drug company . . . . they want the most ridiculous info - my life story basically. So far we've sent 2009 tax returns, W-2's and end of year stuff, and company rep actually wanted my term letter from my old job (July '09) - urm, who gives those out anymore, why would I have it a year later and WTH does that have to do with giving me gh for a discounted rate or free? Furthermore who would lie about getting fired? Sometimes I feel like I just need to give up and move on . . . . only how do you move on?

Aside from that annoyance, I really am in the middle of a good couple of weeks. Honest.

gonna delurk here, in hopes that this will help me remember that I am supposed to be temping this time `round!

I am Sara, infertile for ... er ...8 years. enough to give up any sort of hope, one would have thought, though having gone gluten free almost a year ago (I am either gluten intolerant or celiac) and finding a rush of health from that we are trying again and hoping (well, hope alternates with despair, of course). I have endo, several smallish ovarian cysts at the moment, but an HSG earlier this month confirmed open tubes (yay!) and we are not persuing any treatment right now, just hoping that my returning health and vitality will lead us somewhere.

And, on the happy side, I also have an almost 4 year old adopted daughter who is the light of my life (and we are keeping our foster/adopt licence open in hopes of building our family one way or another, or both!).

I tend toward short cycles (25-26 days) and am at cd21 with spotting today - the hopeful side says "perfect time for implantation spotting - maybe that rumour about an HGS clearing the way is true" and the cynical side says "shut up you idiot, and break out the pads and painkillers." sigh. I am sure the latter side is right, but still...would that I could still the hope and have some peace.

congrats to the recent BFP! sending sticky vibes your way

and MrsDO8 - I love your new plan. I still regret some of the things we didn`t do in our early infertile days, when I was still sure that "this time next year we will have a baby."

Well, got all my bloodwork back.
All seems well. My ovaries are not as old as I am apparently....(Note tongue in cheek) and all my hormones are normal.
And the pain meds worked fairly well.

So, next step is to schedule the lap and see what's going on in my abdomen and in my left tube, or by it. Can anyone tell me what questions should I ask before submitting to this surgery? (I will also be having the hysteriogram-thingy, whatever it's called) I've heard that there are 2 ways of removing endo (cautery and cutting). Is one safer/better than another? I'm personally not a big fan of surgery, but if it's needed, it's needed. Nervous!
Anywho-any advise would be awsome!

Weekend Wrap-Up

Name: MoOnFiReGlOw
Age: 28
TTC #: 4
CD: 11
DPO (if applicable):
Trying Since: April 2009
Plan for this Cycle: Nothing! Been trying to remember my prenatals and B12 and I've seen a HUGE change in AF pain, so maybe I'm short on some vitamins?
Link to Chart (if applicable): http://www.tcoyf.com/members/Amitiel/charts/15.aspx
Thoughts: Nothing really, I went ahead and moved my self to the "Taking a Break" section b/c we aren't really trying all that hard now that we know its next to impossible with dh's issues. Don't get me wrong, I'm still hoping for that miracle sperm, but I now have a bit more realistic expectation in place.

So it looks like I'm not a graduate after all I lost our baby on Friday night. It just feels like a kick it the head to finally conceive and then lose this baby. I can deal with 50 BFN's. But this really hurts.
post #114 of 121
Oh Leslie, I am so sorry to hear that. What a heartbreak. It's so flippin unfair to lose a baby after trying so hard for so long. Sending so much love to you, your family, and your sweet little babe.

lesliesara: I'm so sorry, Sweetie. There's nothing to say except sending you many more take care of yourself.
post #116 of 121
oh leslie, no! I'm so sorry, hon. This is just so unfair, and my heart is breaking. I'm sending you huge hugs and lots of support while you grieve.
