VEGGIES FOR SARA ```````
March 2011 Queer TTC - Looking For A Few BFP's! - Page 7
Seraf- Hoorayyyyy! Stick baby stick.
Krista- I can't imagine how horrible this experience must be, but it sounds like you have a great attitude going forward.
Rainbow- I also had a great experience with californiacryobank. It seems like a frozen donor might be a little less stressful at this point! 10 donors doesn't feel like many to choose from though...
happycalm- Glad everything went well. When are you going to test? I usually test on day 10.
AFM- great insem yesterday (they are usually quite painful for me). I had a lot of weird pelvic cramping around O so I'm hoping that was the clomid doing it's job. Our insem was on cd17 which surprised me as I was expecting the clomid to make me O earlier. We are moving in 28 days, so I am a little nervous that there is no way we will get to try one more time if this round doesn't take. I was hoping to be able to use our last 2 vials up and not have to have them shipped to VA. But maybe it won't matter because I'll hopefully get a BFP!!
Baby dust to everyone.
Sorry about the bfn, graceie Will you try again right away?
And congratulations, seraf! Happy & healthy 9 months to you and the little bean!
Glad to hear the insem went well, vegan. Fingers crossed for you! Are you just doing one this cycle?
indigo, does that mean you will insem today?!
afm, nothing new and exciting other than it's a beautiful day here!
Whew! Busy, busy board! I have been off two days at DS's wrestling tourney, and boy have I missed a ton!
Seraf - CONGRATS!!!! It's the thread keepers thread (just delayed a week or so.) So very happy for you. And I even changed the icon on the status...just for you. Ha!
Thanks Escher for helping me get everyone moved around. If someone isn't in their correct spot, please let me know.
Gelly - Yes, I've been on Follistim 150 since Thursday. How are you doing on them. I had a headache when I was doing 67, but now that I am on 150 - HOLY MOLY - I am visibly B-L-O-A-T-E-D! I know I've gained a few lbs since Thanksgiving, but yesterday DP and I both noticed I was clearly not as small as I had been lately and it was noticeable in my tshirt yesterday. It's insane. I am not having an s/e otherwise. I go in tomorrow morning for an u/s and bloodwork, so I'll mention the weight gain to my doc then. I feel fine, no change really at all. I am anxious to hear how you're doing.
2EZ~ I am on day 3 of 150ml of the follistim...I haven't noticed anything difference. No headache, no emotional-ness, no ovary cramping or twinges really. I'm liking this a whole lot better than clomid, but I'm still in the early stages...I got 6 days left on it. I don't go in for my u/s until Thursday of this week.
FWIW.....My RE told me that I would more than likely end up feeling bloated...and if it got bad with vomiting, or became really painful to give her a call. I do fill a little fuller, but no quite feeling bloated.
I hope that your u/s goes well tomorrow and that you have some great mature follies hanging out in there ready to just *pop*!
Vegan--We won't test until at least 12dpo. Dp will have her last final exam that day. She is a grad teaching assistant studying nutrition/dietetics. I think we'd like to postpone the emotional roller-coaster of testing until when she's at least done with finals. She'd probably prefer to wait until AF is due but my luteal phase is 17 days and I'm sure I can't make it that long. Last attempt we had a chemical pregnancy and the drama of that still weighs a little heavy. What a wonderful 3 days it was while we thought we were pregnant but what a crash when it didn't stick. I cannot fathom how hard it must be to actually miscarry after a longer period of time.
Seraf and Sara: I am throwing in the stalking towel to say WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! I am so so so so. excited for you guys and the kiddos!! Babies are so fun!!!!! So is having an eating buddy just an hour away....... hint hint......... Oh oh oh fun! YAY!!!!!!
Krista: M/C blows ass. I am sorry. No other words
Isa: I am ready for you to be preggo!!!! I stalk you a little bit just waiting!! (in a super non creepy way of course!)
Library: Um you are soo about to pop out a baby. Are you super pumped?
AFM: 20 weeks! Yes!!! My belly is giant and my breasts are terrifying. THEY ARE Es! I am 4 ft 10 120 pounds dripping wet with freaking Es. My nipples are the size of my face. Don't be jealous folks, there are enough to go around ;)
Hey ladies~ I had a weekend away from the computer and everything goes bananas! Specifically DANCING BANANAS!! YAY SERAF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And on your last try, too!!!!! I'm so excited for you both!!!!! What a wonderful way to start the week!!! HOORAY!!!!!!!
RainbowBrite~ I'm very sorry you're having to take a break under such unpleasant circumstances, but I'll admit I also had to laugh a bit in an OH MY GOD kind of way about your donor trauma. What a nightmare! I loved that you didn't tell DP 'cause she'd have stormed over there and punched him! He just sounds like all kinds of trouble and you're better off not tying yourself to him forever.
KSDoula~ UGH for stupid teacher insurance. It can be bad in some places I know. Mine covered infertility diagnosis but not treatment, and since all this artificial stuff is considered 'infertility treatment' we paid for a lot of it out of pocket for sure. Hope you're able to sort something out xoxo
Escher~ How you feeling? Still barfy I hope!!
Krista~ I'm sorry you're in so much pain and strife, but you're amazingly positive, which is wonderful. I too have no doubt you'll get pregnant again and then you'll have the most awesome baby ever.
HappyCalm~ Everything crossed for you this wait!!! I hear you about late testing. I never even had to suffer through a chemical pregnancy and I would always put it off as long as possible. Can't stand to see that blank space.
Gelly~ HI!! How you doin'? Thanks for the note, I'm glad the book arrived.
Vegan~ Everything crossed for you! I'm so excited we've got two insems to watch!
2ez~ Who did you wrestle this weekend? I hope you won!!
AFM~ Long but productive weekend. DP and I made a flying trip down to Dallas to buy a crib etc at Ikea and had a stop at Whole Foods. My carpal tunnel is now KILLING ME but it was worth it to get all our last little bits and pieces. Now I'm just not going to leave town for the duration, just nest at home until Aspidistra arrives.
I was slow getting all the prize books in the mail, but everything is mailed now, please let me know if you get your prize, otherwise I'll go yell at the Post Office.
Seraf~ I'm still SO EXCITED for you!!!
Congrats to Seraf on your BFP
Updates: We have picked our donor from Northwest and our swimmers will be arriving on the 14th. We will be insemming around the 16th. AF is leaving her last remarks for the month and boy was she pissed. I think she knows we are trying to get rid of her for the next 9 months. Hoping we get a lot of BFP's in March. Good luck to all!
Sending lots of fairy dust
