post #101 of 277

Cananny--Jumping in to say that I am terribly sorry to hear about the news. TTC can really test a relationship and I wish you and DP healing and clarity as you navigate through this. Big hugs to you as you mournhug2.gif.

Ad Astra, here's a belated veggie parade for you!  When are you due?






post #104 of 277

Good morning!


Ad Astra, I told you I would send a veggie parade your way once I got on a computer and I forgot to do it yesterday because I'm flakey!  Your numbers sound wonderful and healthy!












And Sara, can't forget your veggies!

For the sake of clarification... they are actually a straight couple. winky.gif


AFM- I had my appointment with the lawyer last night, and we went over the minor things in the contract that seemed like they needed to be changed. Contract goes back to IP's this morning (as soon as my lawyer makes the changes) for approval and last touches. The clinic wants the contract by early afternoon today so they can get me my schedule for meds. I'm really hoping the lawyers move fast! My house became a disaster because I was trying to read the 30 page contract with Grace running around the house yesterday... so I spent all evening trying to clean it up since we're having a family dinner at our house tonight and FIL will be staying for a long weekend. Countdown to injections= 4 days unless we don't have proof of contract in time...

hey everyone -- it feels like I've been gone for ages, and not just a week and a half.


Gelly and 5GBaby: I am so, so sorry about your BFNs! It's hard not to get discouraged, and I think both of your decisions to move towards foster-to-adopt is a good one.  Hopefully you'll both get the BFP you're hoping for, but if you end up loving a child who had a hard start in life, that's wonderful too.  My DP and I want to foster/adopt in the future, regardless of whether we have a bio-child, but we're holding off for a couple of years.  5GBaby, I just wanted to add that I understand your concern about age.  I'm turned 36 in July, and although I'm not someone who gets uptight about birthdays, this was a really hard one for me.  I had planned to be pregnant by the time I turned 36, and when I wasn't, it was difficult.  It was like I could picture my eggs shriveling up or something.


Handerson, Pleasantly Furious: So sorry about your BFN/AF! I hope that next month brings the BFP!!


Cananny: I am so sorry about your DPs decision. This process is harder on a relationship than we realize.  I hope you're able to sort out what's right for the two of you.  Take care of you on this break from trying.


Sara and AdAstra: CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!  broc1.gifcarrot.gifbroc1.gifcarrot.gifbroc1.gifcarrot.gifbroc1.gifcarrot.gifbroc1.gifcarrot.gifbroc1.gifcarrot.gifbroc1.gifcarrot.gifbroc1.gifcarrot.gifbroc1.gifcarrot.gifbroc1.gifcarrot.gifbroc1.gifcarrot.gif


Midwife Steph: That sucks about your donor's sperm.  We haven't had ours tested for motility either.  We tested for all the bad stuff, but just not that.  We're moving to the frozen stuff in 2 months, so there's probably no point in doing it at this stage, but I wish we had at the start.  


To all those in the 2WW - Desert, Carmen, Yeledov, SwtRainbow and anyone I missed - baby vibes to you!!!!!!!


Cortina Colorado: WELCOME!!!!!


AFM: I'm in L.A. at the moment, and looking forward to heading home on Sunday.  My research has been going well.  For those who asked, I research the early lesbian movement in America, particularly the print culture. I'm focusing on a magazine called The Ladder, which was produced by the first national lesbian organization from 1956-1972.  I had the pleasure of interviewing one of the founders of the magazine while I was in San Fran, and now I'm here looking up some old archives.  

I'm 11 DPO and not thinking about symptoms at all (or trying really, really hard not to).  I haven't tested, and I'll wait until I get home.  I'm due AF on Sunday, so if she hasn't come by then, I'll be testing on Monday.  I'm really tempted to test tomorrow morning, but I'd like to wait until I'm home with DP.  We'll see if I can hold out.  I'm dreading seeing that BFN on the stick again, and I think that's enough to make me hold off a bit longer.  I probably won't have a chance to check back into this forum until after I get home, but I'm glad I was able to catch up and hear the wonderful news from Sara and AdAstra! Here's hoping for lots more BFPs this month!!!!!

Congrats Sara!


Happy birthday to DesertSunsets!  I got my period for my birthday!  What did you get?!  irked.gif  (I do feel MUCH better than I did earlier in the week.  I really think the hormone drop is what was killing me mostly.  It's good to start to get leveled off.)


gelly - I'm so jealous your insurance pays for IVF.  We have paid out of pocket for everything.  Oof.  

post #114 of 277

Sara - Congrats to you and Seraf!!!  joy.giffor trigger babies.  My EDD should be May 15. Yours?



Everyone - Thank you for all the congrats and veggies!!! They are much appreciated!  Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Cananny, I'm sorry things are working out the way you'd hoped hug2.gifMaybe a bit of distance from ttc will give you both some new perspectives.



Afm: CD2, I have a wicked headache (I've had them during AF since my cycles came back...NOT fun), my cat is currently at the hospital very ill and throwing up blood (our other cat had to be put down on Christmas day last year) and we just had an earthquake (some shaking but we're fine). Not my most favourite day.

post #116 of 277

And Sara! I'm so excited for you and Seraf. Your home is going to be spilling over with baby cuteness and love joy.gif I wish you a perfect pregnancy!!

post #117 of 277
Fivegrand, I got my period too! Lovely. Getting mine is likely a lot easier on me, though, as I am not the one trying to get pregnant. At least yours finally showed up. I did get to have a chocolate covered strawberry with breakfast though, and treated myself to lunch at a place I won't normally eat because it is too expensive. My parents are coming to visit tomorrow, and I love to see them so that is great.

Dandy, your research trip sounds amazing! Good luck this cycle, we need heaps of pregnant queers around here. (Including my wife! Did you hear me, Universe? I am ready for my birthday baby!)

Afu, we are 9 dpo today. Things are trucking right along. I am trying to convince the wife to wait to test until the 15th, but if we make it til the 13th that would be good enough, I suppose.

Ladies I have a question.. So Dp spotted on the 2nd and had very lil cramps (thats when we thought it was implatation but wasnt) anyways it stopped for 2 whole days then she started her period like normal with bleeding and heavy cramps. Does this mean her AF started the 2nd or on the 4th when it actually was a period??

post #119 of 277

Handerson - Cycle day 1 is the day you first would saturate a tampon.  That's how my RE explains it.  The first day of full flow.  I've been spotting on and off for a week, but today is my day one.
