Wow what a week!! I've been keeping close tabs on the everyone's posts via Iphone as I'm laying in bed.
Brite: Similar to some of other folks reactions, I too had some tears running down my face when I saw your wonder BFP fotos. I've only been here a short time and in the up and down and sometimes lonely rollarcoaster of a ttc process I have come to look forward to listening to others experiences. Brite, you especially have appeared so kind and thorough in your responses to me and everyone else. I'm am truly so happy for you and your DP and your sweet blessing.
Tilly: Congratulations on your BFP as well.
krista, lise, handerson, MRS PP: that is interesting that all of you are on the same cycle together. For the first time ever, my only friend who is ttc as well was one day ahead of me. it was comforting just know that someone is experiencing the ups and downs with me, makes the ride not feels so bumpy, you know. Wow every day in the 2ww is so nerve wrecking, but I think as the days creep into the the double digits, the level of anticipation can be so intense. Good luck to all of you..including SKY... I wish you all the least amount of stress over the next few days, which I know can be so hard given the circumstances..and ofcourse
AFM: I have to say that hearing Brite's great news really helped to put a "brite" spot over what was otherwise not good week for me. To be honest, since Monday I have felt all over the place about what could be going on in my body and all of this accumulated in me feeling so disappointed and frankly pissed off with my body today. Let me do alittle bit of week in review so you all can understand what I'm talking about: Typically AF would have come on Monday or Tuesday (10th or 11th dpo) but since I was taking prometrium (for the first time) I didn't think that AF would come until after I stopped taking it. But no of course not, nothing has happened like how I thought it would happen this whole past year and 1/2 of ttc. Monday I started to have intense cramps, and then tuesday I began to spot ever so lightly. Nothing signficant occurred wednesday. My temps were going down slightly each day, I'm mean like a tenth of a degree which I didnt' think was much of a decline. Then this morning (13 dpo) my temp shot up and I was pleasantly surprised until I got out of bed and realized that AF was here in all her ugly glory. It sucked. It always sucks when this happens. I contacted my RE who reassured me that is possible to start AF even if you are on prometrium. I guess if there was anything good that came out of using it, it was that my LH phase was extended by two days. I don't think that I have ever gone 13 days past O in the whole time that I have be tracking. So I feel like it is back to the drawing board. I am going to make an appt with RE and see what next trick we can try. I have never tried other drugs. I don't even know what a "trigger shot" is that different people refer to and would love to know more about it, if anyone would be willing to explain it to me. Perhaps I need to try a stronger dose of progestrone? Really more than anything for the next day or two I think I just need some serious tlc bc i'm absolutely pooped. Between trying to make human and all the other important things of life, like tending to my wife who got bronchitis yday ...and dealing with my vet who cant give me a straight answer on how to care for my sick cat with pancreatitis....and gearing up for a extremely hard 1 yr anniversary of the death of my beloved canine, I don't think I can take one more stressor. Oh seriously I need a vacation in the worst way. I keep staring at the desktop image of Maui on my computer nearly salivating wishing I could physically just teleport myself to this paradise place. Perhaps until I can conjure up 5000$ for a return Hawaii trip, maybe I will make an appt to try acupuncture for the first time. Thank you again to the person (I think Krista) who suggested it in a previous thread.
Ok I think I just ranted enough for one posting. Good night all.
