sara -- you are sooo not boring! i'm interested in hearing all about your life and times, and please send some of your photos! as for sweets...i really love sour things, and it's hard to find sour candy in other countries. the sour twizzler thingies and shock tarts (super healthy, i know) are some favorites. don't bother with chocolate, though, because we have a lot of really good kinds here. something else i love/miss is cream of wheat, but it might be too heavy to include. to be honest, i'd be super excited to just get a letter and pictures (and any drawings or things like that from the kiddies). do you like dark chocolate? and YAYAYAY for the responsive doctor! i hope the trigger shot is exactly what you need. i'm going to ask for that as well if this isn't my month.
desert -- keeping my fingers crossed that your DP will still get that BFP. btw you two sound like such amazing foster moms. those kids are lucky to have you.
amt -- i'm so sorry about AF showing up on your bday. i wish you and your DP all the best on your ttc journey, and i hope you'll feel like you can come back at some point. you have a beautiful family, and i hope you can add a new member to it soon!
lisedea -- how are you doing? you're in the second part of the tww now, no? any symptoms? i agree with you on the balancing being hopeful and realistic... it's really hard to do, and lately, i've been tending more towards negativity. i think it's a self-protection mechanism (if i don't get my hopes up, i won't be hurt/disappointed), but i, too, am trying to change my thinking and be more positive. sending BFP vibes your way!
dandylez -- Bienvenue/Welcome! i love the drawing in your photo. did you do it? your symptoms sounds *really* promising! when are you planning on testing?
it's funny that both you and desert are roller derby gals. the day you posted, i saw a thing on the news here in france about how it's become wildly popular in the last two years. it's such a cool sport. anyway, i hope your stay in QC is short and sweet!
gelly -- woot for the follies! grow little eggies, grow! when is the retrieval?
jenn -- wow, those are some super intense early symptoms! i hope your move goes smoothly and that your housewarming gift in Denver is a big fat positive on one of those pregnancy tests!
rainbow -- thanks for the encouragement! it sounds like everything is really lining up for your next round of ttc. with all that positive energy surrounding you, it can't help but be successful. courage (as they say here) for the next month of waiting.
prettyisa -- welcome back from your trip and your tiny taste of motherhood. i'm eagerly awaiting your update! how are you feeling?? and can you move me to the TWW?
m³ -- 10dpo is nothing! waves of nausea and fatigue (while not exactly fun) certainly sound promising. especially if you experienced something similar with your DS. are you going to test again in a few days?
oh and salut and good vibes to anyone i missed in the personals!
afm... i had a couple of borderline-miserable days on thursday and friday where my ovaries felt like huge metal balls that were on the verge of exploding. (yay, clomid!) everything was uncomfortable...especially laughing, but i still managed to do a lot of it. when i woke up on saturday, the discomfort was completely gone. since i had a peak reading on my CBFM on friday, i'm assuming that i ovulated either friday evening or early sat morning. fertility friend seems to think i O'd thursday, but i'm taking that with a grain of salt. in any case, it's still quite possible that it worked this time given that there could have been some hearty little squiggly guys hanging out in my fallopian tubes. i'm choosing to be hopeful, because the negativity is really pointless and possibly counterproductive. i started oral progesterone today and had a massive piece of pineapple at breakfast. onward into the two weeks of waiting and symptom watching!
