OKAY! I've caught up with everything!
Welcome, all new members! Kellenjane, yes, I think there is much to learn from what you've been going through! Erin, Mole, Jessimaca, JenMegC, hello!
Meander, what a lovely baby! I have complete confidence that his rocky start will be nothing but a distant memory in the years to come! Congratulations!
Lilac, thanks for the new thread! I'm sorry you got that BFP and temp drop....here's to holding out hope....oh, and I'm one of the people who converted to GSB. Like many of us, I never got a real clear O line, but once I switched to GSB, I get a smiley and it's very satisfying!
Hi Val! Everything looks good there on your ticker!
Shouts out to my homies Hykue, Bel, Tickletoes, and Taxi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Boots, Rosie, Caly, missed you guys too!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Boots, I laughed and laughed about "I can't wait until Zeke has kittens." Dude. You have no idea! My friend, who is 5 years younger than me and totally a mess, is all "could I be pregnant?" and I'm all, "If you are, I will shoot myself." Not really, of course, but she's my ONLY non-mother friend.....
And going back to school? So soon? I thought Aug 3rd was soon! There's a rumor going around that I won't really be in 3rd grade when we start back so if it isn't true and I really am....omg. I won't survive.
Caly, that cat pic was too cute. Yay for ovulating! Glad the opk was dark and cooperative!
I am trying acupuncture now. I think Bel also tried....didn't she? Who was the person whose DH's SA totally turned around? I thought it was her.
He took herbs.
Rosie, the RE visit sounded good and made me less nervous to go myself. DP is actually more of the "if something's wrong, we shouldn't wait" thinking. To go there....with intervention...really freaks me out. I believe so much that nature and good diet and good attitude can impact health.........but I guess if my mind state and trying worked I'd be knocked up by now....
Yes, still floating in kittens. Adopted out 2 so far. 12 to go. Eek.
As for my update,
went to pap. Gyno said she could repeat CD3 labs. Gonna have to wait til next month cuz when I went in the other day the lab was full and I was ready to choke someone anyway.
She also didn't order a HSG but the one that is with saline (?) and shows the uterus shape and stuff. Anyone know what this is? I don't. I should research.
DP went to two appointments with my acupuncturist, 3 weeks apart. She's trying to address his acid reflux and peripheral neuropathy as well. She is concerned that he should get more rest and that he's in so much pain all the time. This on top of the fact that yesterday he told me that his liver enzymes are back up, doc doesn't know why, and he may need to have a biopsy. He says I have baby fever and not to worry, this won't get in the way. But of course, I worry about him too, and I've always believed he can beat this stuff-this autoimmune stuff-it's just so hard dealing with doctors and the lack of cohesiveness. I'm dipping into savings for acupuncture and everything as it is....
So I'm CD5 and hopeful again for this next O time. Rosie's info about morphology numbers really gave me hope that maybe the herbs will help DP get a few more of his guys to be busy and speedy. This making appts thing is hard. Timing. Choosing the right RE? How do I know how to do that? I am just swimming in uncertainty and it's making me a bit nuts!
