post #101 of 156

jenger, clomid didn't make me ovulate early.  I do think it makes you ovulate a better egg though, so hang in there! :goodvibes

Cuss.gifUgh!!!  I just have to rant!!!  My MIL is driving me crazy.  Yesterday I went over to her house and she starts saying, "you're pregnant!  you're pregnant!  I know it!!"  Well, I am in the TWW but after two years of ttc I really don't need someone yelling that in my face.  Then she spent the rest of the day asking me if she can be present at the birth and explaining all these reasons why she should be there.  That these are her babies and I'm just having them for her!!!  Um, did I mention that at this point I am not pregnant???  And she starts telling me how she has been checking out the baby departments because she wants to set a nursery up at her house.  AAAHHH!!  My DH says that she has been bugging him for grandchildren since he turned 18 (he's now 36) and when we announced our engagement she said that she didn't think we were ready to get married (at 32 yrs old!!) and we should just start a family first.  Huh??  I am so frustrated I don't even know what to do.  Since marrying my DH I have struggled to have a good relationship with his mom and I finally feel that we are at a good place, but I cannot handle this.  It is hard enough struggling with infertility to have to be worried about my MIL thinking she is really the mother and I am just some kind of surrogate.  All night I was having images of me not being able to get through labor because she is there and my body won't relax or arguing with her about ME being the mommy and in charge!!  And again, I have no idea if we are pregnant this cycle!  Bleh...thanks for "listening" everyone, I just had to let all that outredface.gif

Indiangirl - Oh you poor thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!scared.gif  I just sat there and read your post with my mouth open!!!  I can't even believe it!  Does she know that you guys have had troubles with infertility?  If so, that was really rude!  Can your husband talk to her or won't she listen to him either?  If it was me, I'd have DH talk to her alone and explain that the extra stress she is putting on you is not helping at all.  Who knows, maybe you have already done that.  :hugs  I just couldn't not post something after reading that!!!  I'd want to run far away too!  On a side note.... I sure hope she is psychic in a way and maybe you are prego!!!!!

Indiangirl!!! Geez Louise!! Is she a nutjob or what?
Wow! I would steer clear, very clear when ya'll do get pregnant! Your DH needs to make things very clear to her now. She is his responsibility, not yours. Wow! I'm just shocked.

Run, run!!

:)

Indianagirl - sounds like a twisted way to emapthize.. make sure you get enough space from her... crazy.

 

I finally got a peak reading!  Now I will o a great big strong clomid egg!  I hope this works...

Well, I got the results of my day 21 progesterone back. It was 15.5. The nurse said that they hope for anything over 15. (and I don't think that day 21 is 7 dpo for me anyway) So I guess I'm pleased. At least I'm ovulating.

Does that sound like a normal level to ya'll?

 

Go Jenger!!!

post #107 of 156

The only times I've had progesterone tested it was crazy high which isn't common. I've also heard that it needs to be over 10. So 15.5 would be fine.

 

MIL's can be so crazy! Mine was nuts after my first miscarriage. Now we just don't tell her anything. Good luck avoiding her!

 

I think I'm going to test tomorrow. If this did not work I will be so mad. I've felt so off from all of these drugs that I won't be jumping for joy to start again. I am so bloated that I look 3-4mths pregnant. I'll let you know what happens.

post #108 of 156

Thanks everyone for the emotional support; it felt good to just totally let it all out:)  My DH is excellent at setting boundaries with her, so I will just rely on him to be my protector!

 

15.5 sounds like a good level to me, if I am remembering correctly it seems like my nurse at the RE made is sound like it was pass/fail.  I go in for day 21 testing on Friday and I'm very curious as to what mine will show...

post #109 of 156

Wow, Indiangirl!  I am so sorry.  People can be so insensitive.

 

I don't like to say anything bad about my MIL, as she passed this past March, but, when I had my m/c last year, she would keep bringing it up, ask me if it was a girl and just kept saying how sad it was.  It really put my in a bad place.  So I sympathize.

 

Well, got a low on my CBFM, of course.  Just waiting to O....

Well...did you? Keeping all that I can crossed for you!

post #111 of 156

Why yes I did and got a nice pink line in about 10 seconds!!!! Beta was 149! So here is the hard part. Hanging out and waiting to see how things will go. After multiple losses I am of course happy to be pregnant again, but very anxious. As of right now my RE hasn't ordered another b/t but has booked an u/s at his office for Dec 8. I'd be about 6.5 weeks. I'm just having a hard time thinking that everything will be ok until then.

lesliesara:  biggrinbounce.gif  Sending sticky vibes your way!!!!  Nestle in there little one!!!

 

My progesterone test came back today at 20.4.  WooHoo!!  The RE is going to go ahead and put me on 100mg of progesterone daily though, just as a precaution.  Good news about that is that the office had a bunch of samples to give me so we don't have to pay for the progesterone for a while at least!!!  Trying to hold out on testing until the Saturday after Thanksgiving...

ahhhhhh, lesliesara!!! sticky.gifsticky.gifsticky.gifStick, little one(s), stick!!!!

Name: Rhiannon
Age: 31 (32 on Nov 26)
TTC #: 1
CD: 20
DPO (if applicable): around 6ish. I'm not charting this cycle.
Testing: I don't believe in betas or poas before 21dpo, and maybe really 28dpo. So not for a loooooooooooong time.
Plan for this Cycle: Doing a full IF workup this cycle, so mentally taking this cycle off. Finished all our IF testing. I had clear tubes and 16 antral follicles. So I'm in good shape. We have a slight MF issue going on. DH has great numbers and motility, but bad morphology. There is a possibility that it was a fluke, but we're going to start IUI next cycle if scheduling permits.
Trying Since: Nov 2008
Link to Chart (if applicable):
Thoughts: Feeling pretty optimistic. Finding out that I have 2 clear tubes took a huge load of my mind about the cost of IF treatments. We can totally afford to do IUI a few times before jumping to IVF, which we can only afford to do one+one (one fresh and one frozen).

Once we got the news about clear tubes, we DTD the next day so hopefully some of those little spermies found their way through those wide open cleared out tubes to a little eggy that grew out of one of those 16 follicles. Also today I had acu to help make my uterus be more receptive to implantation. I definitely feel something happening in there. We'll see. I don't believe in early testing, so if AF stays away until Dec 4 or so, I'll think about testing.

Name:Sara
Age: 30
CD: 11
DPO (if applicable): none, or 4? not sure - funky cycle, funky chart ... again
Plan for this Cycle: hoping my body evens itself out very, very soon. After a 15 day (annov?) cycle, I had a 20 day clearly ovulatory cycle (grrr...entirely too much bleeding of late!) , and am now on cd11 of a new cycle with no sign of CM, when I usually begin having EWCM cd7 or cd8 and ov on cd10 or cd11. My temps jumped on cd8, though, but with having a cold I am not sure they are reliable, and cd8 is a ridiculously early time for that to happen (ridiculous as in not likely to make me pg with such short cycles rather than ridiculous as in impossible). Really annoyed with my body right now, and probably headed to the gyn for thyroid and mineral level testing and anything else they can suggest if my cycles don`t straighten themselves out soon and my general well being doesn`t jump up a notch or two.
Trying Since: 2002

Thoughts: gaaah - just so annoyed with my body right now!! just behave already!!

Weekend Wrap-Up
Name: jenger
Age: 35
TTC #: 2
CD:20
DPO (if applicable):3
Testing: I don't really know, but not sooner than 12dpo
Trying Since: August 2009
Plan for this Cycle: I took clomid for the first time, and messing with my thyroid dose, am taking progesterone, lots of vitamins, and chinese herbs, and doing acupuncture. I also think I need to step away from all of it, to forget how hard this is in order to enjoy what I do have.  That's hard, though.  And I am taking up knitting.

Thoughts:bleh... just like my good friend Toad, from Frog and Toad.  I really identify with him...

Name: Gretchen

Age: 33
TTC #: 2
CD:58

DPO (if applicable):
Testing:

Trying Since: January 2009
Plan for this Cycle: Just waiting to get my moon back after being on the pill for 2 months and the Lap surgery on Nov. 1, so we can move forward. Continuing Accupuncture to get my energy balanced. Hoping this will help either get pregnant on our own or will help when we move forward with IUI and drugs.

Thoughts: So many things going through my head right now. Feeling comfortable with waiting for the IUI until February time frame. Fertility Center is working with our insurance company to be in-network which would allow us a few more IUI's if needed.
