Well, my consolation prize is a vacation with fruity alcoholic beverages, amusement park rides I can go on, and no fear of a m/c or anything else bad happening while I'm in another state a thousand miles from home. So there's that.

 

We'll probably be skipping the next cycle due to timing with our vacation, but the nurse I spoke with today said we can figure out the exact timing when I call in my CD 1. The plan for the next cycle we do will be Clomid + IUI again, although I'm hoping to convince them to let us move on to injectables if that's a possibility. Higher success rate.

 


I have a friend who has bad associations with March, too. I call her every day in March and have every year for about four or five years now. It's a tough thing to break out of once it starts :(

 

I feel for you right now. You really deserve your BFP and sticky baby, and I hope it comes soon. <3

 


 

Hey, and if anyone's on FB, I'm happy to add you! I don't care about people knowing my name, I'm just not going to post it publicly here where it's linked to this username. But y'all are cool. Just shoot me a PM.

 

Fox is a great last name, by the way! It makes everything sound cool :)

 


PM'ing you and Beloved. Same goes with me. I only try to be annomymous here because I don't want work people or students googling me and finding my name attached to this user name, but I don't mind if you'all know who I am.

STILL no af.

Man, it's gonna be quite the let down. In the morning I temp, and if it goes back up, I will test with FMU (I have yet to test with FMU)

We just got back from seeing my grandfather, he is dying, hospice is with him, and it is sooo sad mecry.gif He is such a loving and sweet man. I am feeling ultra cranky, must be PMS.


Sorry about your grandfather. I remember when my grandfather died, it was really sad.

Up and down moments (plus one little boy in our class left for the day on Friday and is now apparently not coming back, so we never got to say goodbye to him gloomy.gif-- sometimes I wonder if the parents know, or even consider, what it does to us to love these kids and then have them just disappear). But overall, today was okay. Good, even.

 

I'm trying to embrace having a month off from TTC. I want to actively use that time for a lot of reflection and finding peace. I have to believe that there's something I still need to "do" before a baby will come to us. It may sound cheesy to say that, but I'm trying to build my spiritual self up a bit and get more grounded and stable, emotionally. It's been a really hard year for us, and I especially need to be able to support DH right now while we get through the holidays without his dad for the first time, and with his mother rapidly deteriorating.

 

So I downloaded a few new meditations off Amazon, and I'm going to try and go to the gym again and eating better. Life has been, in general, very "grab and go" and that definitely pertains to the food I've been eating and how I've been taking care of myself in general.

 

So... we'll see.

 

Sorry for the wall o' text all about myself redface.gif but who would I be if not desperate, devastated and then hopeful again all in two days' time? Not myself, certainly. winky.gif



I am not sure if we are trying this cycle either. DH is really really sick, and if we are going to try this cycle, we at least need to have sex on Thursday. I hope he will get better then. I normally would just BD anyway, but he is so damn sick, I really don't want to go near him. Plus, he smells (I told him to shower this morning, but the sickness is still making him smelly) ugh. I guess I am kinda ok with not trying this month. We are going back to the RE the first week of Jan, and hopefully doing ivf, and I don't have much hope for the natural way anymore anyway.

If so, maybe I'll release 2 eggs next month and have twins lol.gif I just don't want to be bleeding heavy on Xmas with all of the driving and family around. Please, af, just show up.

Well, I'm working today, a long day, wish me prosperous thoughts.


Sorry, Beloved. I was really hoping for you.

CD1 for me. I think I had the more violent emotions yesterday. Right now I just feel defeated and like I might throw up from the confusion and injustice of it all. I need closure... decisions.... guidance, and I cannot have any. I don't know whether to somehow pursue adoption (no money for that), to go see a gyno again (no help, really, and cannot pay for the stuff she suggested).... I don't know what to do, and it is killing me. The only (silly!) solution I have to feeling better is that I am going to stop visiting certain friends. I always end up feeling like crap afterwards. This is nothing more than the fit of a child, really... Not a good solution, but it is the only way I have to guard my heart at least a bit.

 

I just found out that my country is about to make independent adoptions illegal. This is interesting because they have been said to be illegal to begin with... so now I find out they haven't been and are not at the moment. BUT any adoption takes a lot of money... which we don't have. It sounds like I could fly abroad to an "indy" country right now, and adopt... If we had something like $15-20 000. We are a student and SAHM. I only work maybe 8 hours a week from home and we have a job our whole family does, 4 hours a week. So yeah... No extra thousands in the bank account. I have always liked our simple lifestyle but, in this matter, it sucks.

 

My plan after the baby years is to buy a little wooden house in the country side (though still near the capital) and live there, quietly and creatively with dh and the bigger,  homeschooled kid(s). Actually, that is what I would like already but could wait if there were more babies coming. However, my family and friends (and church) are all in the capital region. I think you can imagine how many people want to live in a cute little house with land, within 40 mins of the capital. So, yeah... I have two great dreams, which would both require a lot of money. Unless I could get pregnant.... and you all know how well that is going.

 

I want OUT..... out of where we live right now. (It is great in many ways, but does not fit our personalities at all. I want out of the suburbs.) Out of infertility or at least the limbo of trying and endlessly failing, and feeling like someone keeps punching the air out of me.  Just want to know if there is something I am supposed to do. Adoption feels so right to me, but my hands are completely tied.


Sorry about CD 1. I guess that is good news about the adoption. As I have said before, we are in the same position. I would adopt today if I had the money. I am hoping that the money will be there someday.

Hey Ladies! Wow-I’ve been offline for a few days while celebrating my best friend’s wedding (which was a blast. And the upside to the most recent miscarriage is that I could drink! Many drinks! For the first time in two years!). I came back to pages and pages of interesting posts. Lots of food for thought. I’ll have to digest and post more later, but just wanted to say hi.

 

...oh, and for a 'non-news group of ladies', I find all of the BSL posts very interesting and engaging. I'm taking it as a sign that despite our collective fertility challenges, we all lead very full and fascinating lives....

 

I am so glad to hear you had a wonderful time. I was just reading a thread about somebody drinking like one glass of wine during the tww, and finding out she was pregnant (ugh), and she was so worried that she screwed up her baby. I got a laugh out of it, because I guess I was a lot more careful during the tww, but after 3 years of trying now, I pretty much drink when I want to, but try to keep it in moderation.

 

AFM - no news, of course. Waiting to O. Waiting for DH to get better.
 

post #302 of 459

Day 13... Even though I know better at this point, I'm hoping the solstice-full-moon-eclipse combo will cause the universe to drop a baby into my belly winky.gif

 

Yesterday I booked an appointment at a different fertility clinic... am hoping the Dr. at this one might actually answer our questions instead of tossing some pamphlets at us and shoving us out the door. We actually found out that our counsellor (she specializes in fertility issues) just got hired on at the old clinic because we are definitely not the only ones complaining of insensitive treatment there. So, hopefully they will make some improvements... but the other problem is that their stats for IVF are crappy, they quoted us a 30% chance whereas the clinic we are switching to has a 58% success rate for my age group.

 

Poor DP is still really down about it though, making tons of comments about his crappy sperm crap.gif. I'm not sure how to make him feel better. Also, he just told me that one of our gay friends offered to be a sperm donor. I kinda wish he hadn't told me that because now I'm fixated on it. I don't think we're ready to go there though... one of the things DP brought up with the counsellor was that he wouldn't want to have one adopted kid and one bio, for example. So I don't think he'll go for my idea of using a donor now and IVF for a second kid later on. I know, I'm thinking too far ahead. Must be patient!

post #303 of 459

Laggie - how do you find out about IVF success rates, other than just asking the doc? Ours has something written about the success rate, but it is really fuzzy (basically, she says that rates differ by age, condition, etc, without really giving a clear percentage).

 

Sorry your DH is down about his sperm. My DH feels crappy about it too, and often.

 

MBA - that is pretty funny you friended the pregnant woman with my name on FB. I actually friended all 4 or 5 people with the same name as me, just for kicks, except her, because she is pregnant.

Oh honey, I am feeling for you hug2.gif  It was DS's 6th birthday yesterday....  my SIL rang in the morning to tell us that my MIL could not get out of bed and she'd ring from the hospital to say Happy Birthday later....  we live 2000km away, so we're still waiting to hear what might be going on.

I hope your grandfather is comfortable at least greensad.gif

That might be the one I posted in...  but I wasn't just a glass - I was a bottle and a half!! lol.gif  I tried to have a glass of sparkling wine last night for DS's birthday (I'd bought him some sparkling grape juice so he felt more grown-up)....  but I had one sip and felt ill....  blech.  Guess I've lost my touch lol.gif I'll stick to plain ol' red wine - at least I can finish a glass.....
 

I hope your DH gets well soon!!

post #305 of 459

Hiya my BSL friends-

 

I know I used to post a lot more... Never a lot, but I used to post at least every day.  I thought that avoiding posting would help me obsess less...

 

And though I am trying to stay away, I still end up reading most of the posts - maybe not as thoroughly...but I read them, and my heart is with you all...

 

Anyway, I just wanted to share that I went to the RE again - last time, in June, we decided to wait to do anything.  And then I found out about my thyroid from my naturapath.  Now we have a plan!  Next cycle, that starts with the new year, HSG.  The following, an follicule count with blood tests that might turn into a clomid challange test.  And then my spring will be spend with femera.

 

I'm happy there is a plan, no matter how depressing it is to have to make it.

Hi ladies smile.gif

jenger, it's good to have a plan hug.gif


rcr, saw your PM, I'll be on soon and find you.

No time for personals right now, I just wanted to report that STILL no af. I can hardly believe it greensad.gif

I went by the DT and found tests, I bought a cartful, and took one to get a faint positive.... only to discover it was an OPK mecry.gif

What is the matter with me. I have creamy white CM, and my boobs are tingly. It feels like forever since I had af greensad.gif I just want her to get it over with if she is going to be here.

I keep looking at my faint positive. I almost went through the roof when I saw the faint line, then looked closer at the box greensad.gif((((

Oh, Beloved.  It must have been horrible when you realized it was an OPK.  hug.gif

post #308 of 459
Laggie, I'm sorry your DH is feeling bad greensad.gif and it is hard to be patient, I am so impatient it's not funny.

music, happy birthday to your DS !!

I am so impatient, I am going crazy. Should I go to the pharmacy and get more tests? (the wise words of Jane come to me... if I am pregnant, I will still be pregnant next week)

I just feel like I have skipped this month's af, my CM has changed to creamy white, and I made an appt for a blood test tomorrow morning (but couldn't get the results until Monday greensad.gif )

It turns out that I can't go anyways, DS has a 103.6 fever and a really sore throat. I am taking him in for a strep test tomorrow morning.

AArrgghh!
post #309 of 459

Ok, I am so far behind on personals that I am going to do this gradually...

 

Beloved - Thanks for sharing the photos of you and DD. You are both so beautiful! And you have a great photographer in your family; did your DH take the photos? As for testing again, I know I would personally test over and over again if I were you! I'd love some of Jane's wise patience. I'm so hopeful for you. What a wonderful Christmas present it would be (I'm assuming you celebrate Christmas because I saw the tree in your photos)! Keep us posted.

 

post #310 of 459

jenger...  yay for having a plan!  I hope it works!!

 

Beloved...  I hate that you're in this awful limbo!!!  ...and I hope your DS recovers soon.

 

 

 

Okay...  so I hate shopping at the best of times....  but I officially LOATHE Christmas Shopping.  

 

'Tis the season to be.....  pregnant.  

 

O......M....G.  There were SOOOO many baby bellies around - and it didn't seem to matter how healthy(-looking) the mother was at all (there were a lot of perfectly dirty, skanky looking mamas-to-be......  )    ugh ugh ugh.  mecry.gif  I want to throw up.

 

Soooo....  I'm sitting here with a big bowl of strawberries, blackberries and blueberries  (yay for antioxidants!!) ....

BelovedK..... That OPK thing.... wow... SO sorry! I am sorry I don't remember if you have made a decision not to chart. Just thinking that even if you just wrote down the mucus stuff, it could help you to avoid a situation where you have no idea what is going on. But maybe that is not something you want to do. I am so used to charting that I would not want it any other way, esp. as I really like to know when to expect af.

 

I am still loving the progesterone cream: None of the awful cramping in the TWW and even my periods are just bleeding. You know, none of the cramping and all that. (My irrational and hurt mind wants to take the cream every day. If I all of a sudden stopped ovulating, the cyclical heart break would go away. This would be a crazy plan, though, and I am not going to do it.)

 

So sorry about the dh's who have sperm issues. I don't want to do the hurtful thing of "you know, I would rather have your problem than my own".... No.. It sucks that not only is there no baby by now, but the men feel bad about themselves. The thought that came to me, though, is that maybe in those situations the husband would get comfortable with the idea of adoption a bit faster. You know, so often the woman is ready for that but the man is not. But... if you don't want to adopt or don't have the opportunity, then that is a mute point.

 

I feel like I am doing the "mandatory" routine of TTC and breaking down and then I go right back to researching adoption. Strangely enough, adoption really feels like choice #1 to me.. or would, if the finances were not such an issue. Dh has not looked into it much, so he has the usual thoughts (Would I be able to love that child as much, etc.). However, yesterday he mentioned that he has a friend who would be a good source for information and spreading the word, and said he can e-mail this friend.(I am having such a hard time trying not to ask dh to e-mail this friend TODAY! I know dh needs to do it when he feels ready, even if it takes months.) Dh's mom would be a great one to tell, as she loves to talk with people and knows a ton of people. However, dh does not want me to tell her that we are thinking of adoption... due to the same reason that she would be helpful. Maybe dh still has some shame or feels like we would be pitied in his little town. Not sure. I am way past thinking of anything like that. This is what it is. I would take all the help I could get finding the birth mom and baby meant for us, if such people exist!

 

Today I am going to charge my Kindle and look for some books on Amazon (loooove books!). Dd loves to turn on the Kindle and write on it, but it is a bit tricky to turn off, so I often find it a week later, asking to be charged. We are also waiting for a huge package to arrive from the US, which includes clothes for dd, books, and Christmas gifts from in-laws. It is always super fun to open this annual box, kind of a tradition by now. Will also put up the Christmas tree today. Fun! (Actually, it is so much fun partly because dh and dd decorate it together and I just watch. I would find the decorating stressful, believe it or not, as I am too much of perfectionist.)

 

JENGER.. So happy you have a plan! Sounds really good to me!

post #312 of 459
Thank you, collieflower!! Actually, the photos were taken by my dear friend, she is a photographer, and is very good love.gif I wish I could have gotten some with my DS, but 15 year old boys don't usually want to pose for shots like that smile.gif

I am up early, STILL no af. I wonder what the white, creamy CM means?

I used to temp, but since we pulled back, I stopped and we just let things happen. I wish I had been temping this month. I will definitely temp next cycle, this is getting ridiculous. My temps are not low now, as per what they used to be when I was temping. I need th throw away that OPK, it looks too much like a BFP greensad.gif

I am searching out some tests today if af doesn't show.

post #313 of 459

Still stuck in my hole at CD3, so I don't have much energy to write a lot. Just feeling sad for us all on this thread that xmas is not turning out to be nearly as fertile as I had hoped.

 

Though, I am following your saga, BelovedK, and hope you are pregnant. We need that around here.

 

And, musicoholic, interested in your discussion of reading. What kind of books do you like?

 

 

As for me, CD3 as mentioned. TMI, but I'm getting all kinds of huge blood clots, which is kind of weird. And gross. Wonder what it means. I've ditched the soy for now b/c it could be what made me O on CD30 last cycle (not that it's much different from the CD24/25 I get nowadays, bah). I was excited when I found out that the insurance does cover infertility testing, but then got depressed again when I realized the doctors won't see me until it's been 1 year. 3.5 months to go. Just feeling bitter and absolutely not festive right now.

post #314 of 459
Sweet.Bee, I hate cd3, it is so boring, and if you are having a difficult af, it sucks to be there, but soon you will be able to try again.

We do need a BFP here, I am going to test again today. I am looking for another DT, if there are none there, I will go to Target and get some generic FRERs

I can't help but fixate on the white lotion CM, isn't that how it gets when you are preggo? I know I am deluding myself though. I will waste some more money today though.
ETA, Sweet.Bee... Do you have to tell the truth about how long you have been trying?

post #316 of 459

BelovedK... I am confused... You got a line on the OPK. Are you sure you did not miss the really positive OPK by just some hours? Could it be that you are about to ovulate? Now granted my OPK's are never truly positive, but still... Having even a faint like would seem to mean something. Mucus cannot tell you if you are pregnant, I am afraid. The sort of mucus you describe is normal, although not around ovulation. (I still hope for you, though.) You k now... a OPK can be used as a pregnancy test. However, you are supposed to be able to get a positive HPT before you can get a positive OPK.

 

I am having a rough time not being able to minimize the other thread in "Pregnancy and birth." I would love it if I never needed to see another "Guess what I just got for a Christmas gift, a BFP" thread. No offense to anyone. I hope all such people are so very happy. It would not take away from their happiness, however, even if I did not have to read the title.

 

I really, really want to tell MIL about my struggles with ttc. I feel like she would MAYBE tell me less about the news of all the preggos if she knew how hard this is for me. Also, I now feel like I cannot really share anything with her because I cannot share my biggest sorrows and wishes. She also knows tons of people and loves to talk, so she could really help with the whole adoption thing, who knows, maybe even with fundraising. BUT... DH does not want me to tell her, and don't blaim him a bit. She has been known not to keep secrets (You know, I am not supposed to tell you, BUT....) and she also comes up with stuff. So they have unexplained secondary infertility might become "they just haven't been able to have more kids and they are fine with it" or "they have this really rare disease... or something." I love her... but she has really come up with some pretty amazing stories in the past years, normally overly positive ones. Maybe we are just too boring, otherwise... ha ha.

 

Is there a thread somewhere in infertility for those who have given up and are trying to deal? I need to be somewhere between that one and this one. I am thinking of booking an appointment with a private fertility specialist. We have free healthcare here, basically, but this one would come totally out of pocket. I saw her once already, to confirm I don't have PCOS or endometriosis. I think she could explain the (few acceptable to us) options to us and thus maybe give me some closure.

BelovedK & miriam_bat_avraham, I was ready to go to a fertility doctor and say 1 year, but my husband vetoed the plan. He thinks they would find out somehow. Like maybe all the doctors talk to one another or to the insurance or whatever. eyesroll.gif I wouldn't put it past them here (esp. if the insurance is required by law to cover infertility testing, they wouldn't want to pay if they didn't have to), but I'm not sure they have enough time to do such detailed detective work. Sadly, it's not like I can go through with the plan without my husband on board. They'd want to talk to both of us and test both of us. Though I'm pretty sure I'm the problem since my body ovulates so erratically compared to before. Almost xmas now, anyway, so it's too late for this cycle. Everyone will soon be closed (if not closed already). Maybe if I'm not pregnant this time, I can convince him we need help.

 

For now, just hoping to ovulate normally this cycle.

post #318 of 459

Just wanted to pop in and say hi. I've been reading along but don't have much to contribute. I ended up not taking the double dose of soy (did I even talk about that on this thread??) so I'm not considering this a soy cycle after all. I only managed to take the first two doses (and the second one was on the morning of the 3rd day instead of the night of the 2nd) anyway. My cervix has started ripening. Woo. I'm actually hoping for a later ovulation this cycle, though. I'm trying to follow the sperm meets egg plan thing, and if I ovulate on CD 13 or 14 the timing would be hard to BD around. So for once I'm hoping for my "normal" O day of CD 17. That would be next Thursday, and we'll be at our own house then. When we go into see our families we split up between our parents' houses, so BD'ing will be next to impossible.

 

I ordered my OPKs last night and they should be at my parents' house tomorrow. I was going to buy them at Target yesterday but wow are they expensive! I got way more for less money off of Amazon plus they came with a few HPTs, too. Hope the brand is OK.

 

Someone asked about my grandfather a few days ago. He much improved over the night my sister and I stayed with him. He's still in the hospital, but my aunts and uncles were able to get some rest and pick up one of their travel trailers to come back and stay. So it worked out well. I'm just hoping he gets strong enough to come back to our area instead of being stuck in the hospital out of town.

 

I have a crap load of chores to get done around our house. My sister is picking me and the kids up today, and my husband will be joining us on Friday. So I don't know if I'll have time to post, but I want to wish all of you ladies a very Merry Christmas or any other holiday you celebrate. I think about you guys a lot and really pray that good things will happen for us all.

Sorry your DH is down about his sperm. My DH feels crappy about it too, and often.

 

The clinics here both have their stats up on their websites. Also I have friends who have been going to both clinics so I know what their doctors tell people. This is the better one. Just posting the link because it shows the breakdown by age and might be interesting. However, the other clinic says this one only has better stats because they refuse to take patients with a poor chance of success. So maybe these stats are overly optimistic. Mind you I was stalking the IVF support thread on here and it looked like a LOT of success - 80 to 90% BFP. Anecdotal I know, but it gives me hope. Spending $10K with a 30% chance doesn't sit well with me.

 

BelovedK, I really hope you find out one way or the other soon. I'm on the edge of my seat over here :wink

 

Today is CD 14, which is when I usually O. I was planning to DTD last night, had told DP that was the plan, including several sperm related comments (AND he gets an email from fertility friend) but he, uh, was out of commission when I got home. And claims he did not realize what I was getting at banghead.gif

For chrissakes. I suppose we can try tonight but seriously WTF? Normally he's pretty smrt, I'm not sure why he seems incapable of comprehending anything to do with fertility.

LTB:  would it work with your MIL to share your passion for adoption with her - without actually mentioning anything else?  Would your DH be more on board with that?  Maybe it would seem a little less "personal" to him...  to want to "help" children out there who need love, rather than "admitting failure".  I don't know...  I'm just trying to look at it from my DH's perspective....  I think if it came up for us (which it still might) he would be more okay focusing on the "helping" aspect, rather than what he would perceive as failure.  I pray something good comes out of all of this for you hug2.gif

 

Sweet.Bee:  I love fantasy (Robert Jordan, Piers Anthony, Robin Hobb etc)... murder/mystery/thriller (Jeffrey Deaver, Michael Connelly, Kathy Reichs etc).....  but really I guess I love anything that has a cover and lots of pages....  lol.gif  I came across a book the other day called "The Mozart Conspiracy" which looks interesting (only read the first chapter of it last night)...  and I bought the Spiderwick Chronicles for DS (but of course I have to read it first....).  What do you like?

 

Laggie:  geez, men can be thick sometimes!!  eyesroll.gif

 

Beloved and MBA:  anything???  I'm trying to pretend I'm not excited for either of you.....  bouncy.gif

 

DH told me last night that my boobs were bigger (which is scary, considering how big they are to begin with)...  and told me the other day that I smell different.  I'm starting to wonder if I might be going through early peri greensad.gif 

 

On a positive note - we start our road trip today to the Barossa Valley!!!  Yay!!!  OTOH...  I don't feel like a 9 hour drive ... lol.gif  I woke up with a killer throat greensad.gif
