Amy and Lena - so sorry to hear about that. You will be in my thoughts! I have a friend with MS, and she has been lucky so far, but I know the disease varies a lot from person to person and can be unpredictable. Do you feel the care you're getting is adequate? If not, could you go to Chicago or wherever the nearest major teaching hospital is? I wish you both the best.
tiney - good luck to you!
lise - congrats on the certification. .3 percent is quite the distinction. Like for you, my temping was a mess this cycle. And to be honest, it was the first cycle I ever temped, because I didn't take it seriously before.
sky - good luck in the 2ww.
desert - dang! Sorry about the BFN. I was hoping for you. Will be thinking of you during your break.
invitn - you said you're 11dpo, but I forget if you did an insem this month. if so, you're getting close to your answer! Hoping for a BFP!
Krista - you are in the 2ww, yes? Did you test? Enjoy your holiday in Tahoe!
Question of the day - We haven't really planned when or if we'd try IVF because, even though we've been at this three and a half years, most of that time was spent with a KD that didn't work out. This month was only our second insem with frozen. Our next step, if I don't get pregnant, will probably be IUI in a clinical setting.
AFM -- Thanks everyone for asking about me -- I still have not tested, and have not gotten my period. Here's the lowdown: I may have ovulated late (maybe even too late for conception, not sure). Temping was inconclusive. But today is day 18 since our first of two vials this month. Breasts still tender, but not as much as the last couple of days. Wifey and I have talked about testing on Thanksgiving, which may turn out to actually mean Wednesday, since we won't have time on the holiday. But as you can see, I am totally trying to protect myself emotionally by not admitting that these signs look good. I do occasionally have a very long cycle, like 40 days, which is part of why I'm trying not to get too excited.
Good luck to everyone in the 2ww, and my best to everyone who is suffering through trying pinpoint o.
