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."
