Brichole, big hugs to you. We are all here for you during this difficult time. Monkey is right...having a plan would be the best thing because I think you'll feel a sense of peace to know what you want to do and what you need from DH.
Monkey and Cbaa, hehe I took a cooking class in college and the first lesson was cooking chocolate chip cookies. I somehow put in twice the amount of butter I was supposed to. Seriously, I felt bad for my roommates, who I forced to eat my food that semester. hehe needless to say, DH does most of the cooking. I always find it so fascinating because I'm a science major and did quite well in chem and organic chem lab. But for some reason, cooking was always more difficult; I think I have a mild form of ADHD and can't sit around waiting for something to cook. But boy, do I like to eat. hehehe And Monkey, you should DEFINITELY come down to NYC. hehe i'll show you what a hopeless case I am. You'll be surprised how easily i can screw up a super easy recipe.
It sounds like we have a good number of people in our Beautiful Uterus club. Monkey, Cbaa, SheSaidBoom, and me! We should make a logo. haha I'm giggling just thinking about how it will look.
By the way, Cbaa, that book sounds fascinating. I always think music can definitely impact your body. I know I feel differently depending on what music I listen to. As for endometrin, it doesn't really help you build up the uterine lining...it helps to increase the blood vessel support I believe; this is important to help implantation and to feed the fetus. However, if the lining isn't thick enough, implantation will be difficult so even with progesterone supplementation, it wouldn't really be effective. You may want to ask the doctor about using prometrium as a suppository. Just from my experience, oral usage of progesterone drove me CRAZY. I was a mad woman and constantly exhausted. Since i've been using progesterone as a supplement, I've felt much better. It sucks to have to stick it "up there" but i prefer it MUCH more than the oral supplementation. I also am a huge fan of the trigger just because it's kind of a guarantee that you ovulate but more importantly, it tells you basically when you ovulate so you can BD at the correct time. But I'm hoping that you get your BFP this time around so it won't be an issue for you at all!!!
ShesaidBoom, I'm with you...babies shouldn't be this expensive BEFORE they are born!! But it will be worth it and hopefully, this is your month!
Let's make September be a month of record BFPs!!
AFM, ok i'm freaking out a little. I have a lump on my ear lobe. Technically, I've had it for a few months but I assume it was a cyst. It regressed a little, getting smaller. But it has now gotten bigger again. And, my jaw is really hurting (I think that it's because I'm grinding my teeth while sleeping...I was told by my dentist that I definitely grind my teeth a lot). However, what if it's cancer!? I know I'm a hypochondriac but I am worried I can't even make an appointment to see my derm to have it checked out. Oh well, I am having lunch with a doctor friend tomorrow so hopefully, he can look at it. the only problem is he's an anesthesiologist. But I'll take anything at this time!! Ok, I'm breathing again...
