I hope that the sis went well, catheleni. It is very sad to see what budget cuts have done to classroom sizes.
Lilac, how was the dr appointment? I hope you hear that everything is just fine.
Calpurnia, your weekend sounds great! I am not sure if overall warm temps mean anything. I have heard that low temps do sometimes signal hormonal imbalances.
Congratulations on your degree, Crunchyk! I am sorry that pcos has been such a pain. In reading many ttc blogs of women with pcos it seems that everyone ends up finding a route that finally gets them pregnant, but there are so many different approaches, I hope you find one that works for you soon.
Boots, my hsg was both a good and uncomfortable experience. Good because the doc doing it talked me through everything very calmly (as I dug my fingernails into my palms the whole time). I enjoyed seeing what was happening on the screen. I found the insertion of the catheter and the dye to be uncomfortably crampy but not like daggers or anything traumatic. My results were normal, but the procedure affected me most on a deep emotional level, though, which I wasn't expecting. I hope that it is stress-free for you.
Pooruglyhappy I feel similarly about my profession having driven so much of my life and causing me so much stress that I am certain it's affected my health. I'm trying to manage stress, but throwing ttc into the mix has not helped. I have good and bad days and just try to do the best I can.
Reelala, I think that your lp is quite long enough. Mine being longer hasn't done me any good so far, either. We've been using preseed for several months, just a bit at a time (we don't insert it in any special way). Instead cups are menstruation cups, meant to replace tampons/pads, but I started reading about women using them here to keep the semen closer to the cervix after bd. One lady on the clomid thread got pregnant the month she used them, so since this is my last month on clomid, I decided I'd try them out. I think I'll keep it natural and raise my hips for about 20 min and then insert one to try to stop loss of semen when getting up, using bathroom, etc. For the past few months I've tried to lie in bed for hours, reading, doing work, but it's truly been a pain in the neck (and unsuccessful anyway), so I'm hoping the cups will liberate me, somehow.
Welcome danadavis108! I hope your stay here is short!
Still waiting to o here...
