Congratulations Justthinkn - You have given me hope! I, too have been at this 17 cycles! (And will start a new one, in all likelihood, with the new year.)
ScarletJane - I wanted to echo the others - you have every right to be bitter, sad and whatever other emotions you might feel when going through this TTC business. And not conceiving easily after your daughters stillbirth - that is tough, girl. Really, really tough. :hug
We are just coming out of the flu. No bd'ing for us, so I guess that means on to ivf or iui. I am actually looking forward to this but worried about missing work because of monitoring. All my classes are in the morning, and we don't get sick days. We just cancel classes which pisses students and their parents off and sometimes results in bad course evaluations (the semester before I go up for tenure - not good).
Off topic- I made ds a Waldorf doll for Xmas and got him an ergo baby doll carrier. It was the perfect gift. And- it is snowing in Alabama! DS is sleeping right now but if he is not up in an hour I am waking him up to go outside and play snow is a huge deal for southerners- it only happens once every three or four years).
rcr- I am so sorry you all were sick! Can you go to appointments in the afternoon? Do you have grad students that you can 'train'? Independent research projects you can assign?
Great job on the gift! I have always wanted to make a waldorf doll. I made a bunch of wool felt stuff this year... I bet I could make a wool felt doll...
Oh Man, that is tough. :hug

Go to edit account details
scroll down to preferred text editor, it will probably be on Rich Text editor (which doesn't allow you to type in smilies.
Change it to BB code Editor.

This is a Question and Suggestion forum thing, but I thought I'd share.
Thanks, Lady! I hope my :hug works! :lol
Beloved So far it hasn't happened that someone who was TTC when I started has had a second since then or announced another pregnancy.....but if anyone does.....Oh I cannot be held accountable for my actions! I know one of DH's sisters that has a 6 month old should be pregnant any second.
Hi enigo! This HAS happened to me - both of my sisters-in-law (on my husbands side) were pregnant at the time we started trying - they were about 6 months along, but I wanted to have a couple of months where all of us were pregnant... Now, one of the SIL is due this Spring with another. I am waiting for the announcement of the other one soon. I am not looking forward to it... Though I will truly love my neices/nephew...such conflicted feelings...
AFM- 10dpo, I have increased my progesterone to 200mg twice a day. Whoa. It feels fine, however - good even. I am not too excited, as I never gor a positive opk. (But I did get a peak reading on my monitor). And besides that, I am getting an HSG next cycle... In a weird way, I am looking forward to that. (call me crazy!)
