Ouch sweet.bee! That sounds painful... hope it starts feeling better soon. :(
Thanks lavatea for that explanation, very interesting.
I'm definitely not religious in any sense but I wouldn't do IVF for myself just because I don't think that I would be able to go through everything that comes with it. I am ALL for it though... I think it's amazing what science can do for us and am all for utilizing that science. I'm just too much of a wimp for it and having 2 children already, I don't think I would feel right doing it. However, we did talk about it when we were TTCing DD. We were less than a month away from our first appointment with an RE when we got our BFP with her and were definitely contemplating it. This time, though, we have already talked and said that if we can't do it on our own, we'll just have to be happy with the 2 we have together. I think that's a bit easier for DH to say as he has 4 children already. I have always dreamed of at LEAST 3... so it might be harder for me to give up on that dream if need be.
I'm having a bit of a rough go lately since my neighbor (who is pregnant with her 4th child by the 4th different father and was only with him for 3 months) that knows how hard we have been TTCing and having problems called me yesterday all excited and breathy to tell me she is pregnant with her first girl... It nearly killed me to say congratulations to her and be nice. I got off the phone and had myself a huge, nice cry fest. It was just not what I needed to hear right then. Ugh.
And on another note, my cycle is messsssssssssssssed up royally right now. Last cycle, I didn't have any of my NORMAL O signs and I was a lazy charter and basically made things look the way I wanted them to based on when I thought I MIGHT have O'd.. well my AF came and it was SUPER SUPER SUPER light. It was mainly all spotting with less than 24 hours of real bleeding... then on CD 6 (yesterday), I got some blood tinged EWCM and checked my cervix and it was SHO... uh... what?! So then I think that's all a fluke but then I wake up this morning and my temp is up. I am SOOOOOOO hoping that this is ALL just a fluke because I'm pretty sure it's impossible to O on CD 6... so FX that tomorrow's temp is LOW. I'm so confused by my body... and I've been doing this charting crap for SEVEN years! I shouldn't get confused anymore, lol.
