Hi Everyone,

Isa: hug.gif I'm sorry. What a disappointment. I hope that your trip is wonderful and distracting. hug2.gif

Graceie: I agree that it can be very hard to know if what you're feeling is a real symptom of pregnancy or not. I hope yours are the real deal! fingersx.gif

2ez: I'm so glad that the ultrasound looked good! I hope that the injectables treat you well!

MrsPP: It's too bad that procrastination is such a two-sided friend. She can be so sweet and pleasant, and then at the last minute she likes to bite. I hope your paper goes well!

Indigo: It's neat that you love your RE so much, and it sounds like you have a great plan. It's exciting that you might be trying so soon!

Seraf: How are you doing? Are you 10dpo or 11dpo now? That's testing time in my book! fingersx.gif

AmandaMom: How is the wait going for you? How are things with your wife? Your chart looks great! fingersx.gif

AFM: I had an ultrasound this morning (the first of this pregnancy), and everything looks good so far. I'll go back in two weeks for another one. My RE seems to feel like everything is going fine, so that's nice! fingersx.gif

Happy Saturday girls,

 

Isa, I was just going to tell you that my SIL got negatives for 2 weeks before her BFP, but then I saw that you're on CD1.  I'll move you to taking a break.

 

2ez, all you have to do is copy and paste the first post.  I'm not in BB code editor or anything.  I'll try to pretty it up a bit before you or anyone take over.

 

Escher, Yay for a good ultrasound!!!!!!!!  Not temping has been lovely, I have had no desire to test yet.  The plan is no testing unless Sara gets her period before I do.  Since she's 4 or 5 days behind me (why do they say women sync up?  I've lived with so many women and never synced up).  I'm still so thrilled that you're pregnant.  

 

Over here not much going on.  My boobs are swollen to the point that their bottoms don't touch my chest (so, perkier than usual).  I think they do that every month, tho.  Well, they seem to do it on months I try, just to confuse me, I suppose.  The kids have decided I'm pregnant this month.  We got a pool pass at one of the local hotels and I was avoiding the hot tub.  They asked why, I said I might be pregnant.  They were like, "Really?  You might be pregnant?!?"  I reminded them that we had recently enjoyed frozen marshmallows and they were beside themselves.  Ari has been talking to my belly.  I asked if she wanted a boy or girl, if we are lucky.  She said she thought it would be better to have a boy because Osha is the only boy and there are so many girls in our family already.  

 

I had a dream last night that I was visiting a lesbian couple with a brand new baby.  I carried her around and sang her sweet songs until she fell asleep and another baby showed up(I am not clear whose baby she was - couldn't have been mine, she was in a disposable diaper).  She was 3 or 4 months so the songs were sillier and more tickle-y.  Her diaper felt like hot jello, so I took her in the bathroom to change her.  She'd had a poop blow out and my arm was hit.  I pulled the diaper off her and poo went everywhere.  I was wiping her with TP and afraid it would clog the toilet, so I called Osha to flush.  He came in, hit the flusher and the toilet didn't flush, but a shower head above and in front of the toilet started spraying all over us.  It was a mess!  I was holding a filthy soiled kid and we were flooding the bathroom with clean water, but it was carrying poo all over from the floor where the diaper lay.  

 

Strangely, I had several baby poop dreams when I was pregnant with Ari. 

 

In other news, Sara has decided that if her parents are going to kill her in June, why not let them kill her in March?  We just prepped the kids not to talk about it in front of her parents.  (like, a few months ago when Ari said, in front of Sara's mom, "These mittens are too small for me, we can give them to the baby next winter.")

sera  that all sounds good . you are a stronger women then I ( waiting to test wise ). I think that part of my inpatients is I am alone in this until I get a BFP then I will tell a few of my Friends

Hey all,

So i just finished my 5th dy of 50 mg clomid and I have felt... nothing. Did other people feel weird or anything? Is it likely to mess up my O date? 

post #548 of 583

Go_Vegan: I felt nothing on Clomid the two times I was on it. Yes, it can change up your ovulation to a little earlier. Do you ovulate regularly or are you using Clomid to help you ovulate? I ovulated regularly and one time it made me ovulate a couple of days earlier than I would have expected.

I did have 1 cyst on my left ovary measuring 14, but my estradiol was a nice 27, so my RE decided to go ahead and let me start Follistim tomorrow night. I am doing just 75 for the next 5 days. I'll go in next Thursday for another u/s and estradiol. My AMH was verrrry high so my doc is keeping my dosage fairly low. Hopefully, I won't produce like Octomom, but will have a couple viable follies that will actually mature and O this month!

 

 


Good to hear!!

I wish I were more excited about a January baby, but maybe Carmen's enthusiasm will rub off on me. I just really wanted a summer baby, damnit! Or at least fall! I'd happily take spring, too, if that didn't mean having to wait until August. Jeez. That seems so far away. gloomy.gif

Hawaii better be good, dammit.

 

Sorry about the BFN hug2.gif There are a few great things about a winter baby! 1. You aren't SUPER pregnant when it's really, really hot outside. 2. You get lots of cuddles keeping baby warm (although I'm sure cuddles would happen anyway) 3. You'd have a BABY!!! orngbiggrin.gif

Glad to hear everything is trucking along!

Hmm do you normally spot mid cycle?

 

Afm, cd 29. I think if I did O it was likely on cd 25. So, if my LP is going to be a "good" length then I don't expect af for a little while. I went to "BirthFest" today and ran into the midwife that caught DD and also saw one of the doulas that attended our birth....who is FINALLY going to mail us some video she took of DD's birth! She already sent us a bunch of photos right away but I've been dying to see the video!

post #550 of 583

Carmen no not normally

 

vegan hope that's a good sign your unpleasant side effects are kept to a minimum and you get a BFP soon

post #551 of 583

MrsP~ Good luck with the paper!! I hope it's at least on a fun topic.  

 

 

Carmen~ April seems really soon for sure!  Then you'll have a new year's baby!

 

2ez~ A washer IS exciting!! And not having one  is really tiring, I have to say.  Nashville's such a great city.  Hatch Show Print is one of the most amazing shops in the world. 

 

 

Isa~ I'm so sorry. I'm sending you biggest hugs and best thoughts now. I agree, though, that if you've not seen blood, all hope is not lost.  xoxoxox  I hope Hawaii is as gorgeous as they say 

 

Seraf~ I think it's a prophetic dream for sure.  Especially the poop part ;)    Hooray for perky boobs!

 

 

Carmen~ I hope your lp is long enough, even though that'll make an incredibly long cycle.  The Birth Fest sounds really fun!!  

 

 

AFM~ Not much.  The handyman came and patched up a few spots in the ceiling. I'm really looking forward to getting the painting started. The librarian shower yesterday was very nice, though I didn't get a single book! DP thought that was hilarious.  We did get the bassinette we wanted, though, so that's wonderful.  

 

Still so tired.  Looking forward to more sleeping in tomorrow. 

 

Luck and love to all xoxo

post #552 of 583
Oh, there has been blood, all right. Sorry for getting kind of gross---in fact. WARNING: THIS NEXT PART IS SUPER GROSS!

But I didn't think anything about using a diva cup on an airplane. Until I got off and went to use the bathroom and realized (explosively) that liquids under pressure applies to ALL liquids under pressure. It was like a horror film. But luckily just on my hand and in the toilet and not the other possibilities (on my clothes, all over everywhere). Still really nasty, though and from here on out any travel will be using disposable feminine products and I'm sorry I told you all and will resume my normal not disgusting nature now. It's strange because in real life I am very dainty and can't talk about body functions without blushing, but apparently the internet lets me be bawdy.

My boobs also have all kinds of dark blue veins in them now, which is strange. I do wonder what the hell was up.

Gracie--spotting sounds really promising! And Seraf--so do baby dreams! I agree that March and June are similar so why not start trying now and explain in June? She'd be about 12 weeks by then, right?

My moms met us at the airport with beautiful leis and I should go to bed so we can get up at dawn and start the fruity drink parade! Goodnight all!

Isa~ NIGHTMARE!!!  I'm glad it worked out okay, but what a terrible experience on top of a disappointment.  At least you can (and should) have all the umbrella drinks you want. 

 

 

Sorry to be the bearer of sad news, but 5GrandBaby asked me to post here to tell about their recent loss.  She went to the ER with abdominal pain and it was discovered that her ovaries had twisted around each other and the left one had necrotized and was filling her body with pus. They did emergency surgery to remove it and save her life, but sadly they lost the baby at 12 weeks, almost immediately after the surgery. She says she's doing well as can be expected, and is even more grateful to her wonderful partner. A very very sad story, but there it is. 

post #554 of 583
ISA enjoy the sun. You should post your story on the diva cup web site

Library that is so sad !

Afm I've been napping with the babe well resting I might keep this up even if I don't get a bfp but I'm still feeling really good about it

Oh no. That is a sad story, indeed :( I hope she is able to heal well.

Okay, here's the bump pic as requested by a few.  I contrast it with the bump pic which is currently my avatar and laugh and laugh and laugh. She'll double in weight during the next six weeks~ yikes!!!183927_10150152215396474_590141473_8019459_1550652_n.jpg

post #557 of 583

Library~ Cute Pic! That is the same color that we are going to paint our kitchen...this spring. It was between that and "Sunset".

 

Thanks also for the news about 5grandbaby. That is horrible...I'm glad that she is alright and on her way to healing.

 

Happy Sunday everyone!!!!

2ez - Hooray for AF showing up on her own! So glad you got the green light for injectibles.

qmama - Cramping sounds like a good sign! dust.gif

KS - I agree that Grey's Anatomy story line is annoying. Same goes for The Kids are All Right. It seems like any lesbians portrayed on TV or in movies either sleep with men or are mentally unstable. Definitely not a good representation of lesbians everywhere, and it feeds into the misconceptions about lesbians. I would have slapped that coworker who thought you must have had an affair.

Indigo - How exciting you might be starting TTC so soon! joy.gif

Library - I think a scrabble rack with AMANDAE is a good sign! I love scrabble. I play Words With Friends on my iPhone all the time. Love your new bump pic!

MrsPP - Good luck writing that 20-page paper! shamrocksmile.gif

Isa - hug.gif So sorry this cycle was a bust. I was really hoping for you. Maybe the time off is just what you need at this point. Try to enjoy yourself in Hawaii. hug.gif I thought blue veins in your chest were supposed to be an early pregnancy sign. Maybe you should test again in a few days just to be sure.

Escher - I'm so glad you got good news at your u/s. I can't wait for you to hear that little heartbeat! Maybe you could post a pic of what you saw yesterday?

Seraf - I had to laugh at your poop dream and the baby not being yours because she was wearing a disposable diaper. lol.gif

Graceie - I saw you said you are all alone in this. Are you TTC as a single mom by choice? Either way, you're not alone; you have us! Fingers crossed for you! fingersx.gif

Vegan - Be thankful you had no symptoms from the clomid! And yes, it may make you ovulate sooner. It did for me, but I was on double the dose you took.

Carmen - How exciting you finally get to see that video!

Hello and baby dust dust.gif to everyone else!

AFM, 7dpo and still no symptoms to report. I POAS yesterday to check if the HCG was out of my system yet, and it is. Any BFP's from here on out are the real deal! Though I'm not sure when I will test. I may try to hold out until 12dpo. Things with Sue are a little better, but we really need a BFP this cycle. Keep those fingers crossed and good vibes coming my way!
post #559 of 583
Library: What a great photo! It's fun to see how much your baby has grown since your last belly shot. It's amazing she still has more growing to do before she is born!

Isa: What a bloody mess! hug.gif I hope the rest of your vacation is smooth and fun!

Carmen: It's neat that you're going to get some video of your DD's birth. What fun!

Seraf: I have my fingers firmly crossed that you'll get good news when Sara gets her period. I agree that I don't understand the myth that women sync up in their cycles. My wife and I are not at all on the same cycle, and I don't think I've ever synced up with roommates in the past. I guess it must work for some women, but not for me!

AmandaMom: I have all my fingers and toes crossed for you. I'm glad that things are a bit better with Sue, but I definitely understand needing some good news in this process. I hope you get it in just a few days! fingersx.gif

AFM: We have lovely spring weather here, but I want another snow day this winter! Does anyone have some extra snow they would like to send my way?

Good Afternoon Ladies, 

I am stopping by quickly because I have a question. DP and I have decided that we no longer want our KD to travel to donate (I will go into details later) which puts us at a crossroads A) Wait until after the wedding in Feb 2012 and find a new KD/Unknown Donor from Bank B) Try to find a way to have his sperm come to us without him actually coming to us. This is where my question comes in... I saw some information on the Rainbow Flag Health Services website about Donor Home Delivery- Essentially it is chilling the sperm and it is overnighted to us so that we can insem or have it prepared for IUI I have also saw something similar called BioTranz. Does anyone know anything about either of these or can point me in the right direction?
