Hey all. Sorry I've been slacking on the posting front! I read every day, just need to be better about posting.
Lise, I don't believe I thanked you for the thread! It's a lovely new month, with a blank slate. Thanks for keeping us all in line.
Also, I'm so sorry to hear you had to be sick in a hotel! That really bites.
CAnanny, I really hope this new RE is just what you needed to start your family and your meds help you get pregnant quickly. Sorry Clomid isn't treating you nicely.
MrsPP, thanks for asking after us! We are doing okay, will elaborate more later. I was psyched to read about your new donor! He sounds utterly fantastically perfect. This is definitely your month.
Krista, we were bummed to see this month didn't work for you and DP. Also, I hope your DP comes back around to realize she really does want kids. Sometimes I think it just gets easier to feel inclined to give up rather than keep pouring our hearts and souls into a process that is takinga long time to yield results. Have courage, I know you are persistent and strong and you can help her see the metaphorical light.
Gelly, I'm so hopeful for your upcoming FET. I also hope your DP comes around! Nobody wants to have to give up on their dreams because of their age. I certainly hope your partner won't.
I want to thank everyone for your increasingly kind words about our foster kids. We feel very supported, and it means so much to me that this is a safe place to be vulnerable. I appreciate you all, and I apologize if sometimes my constant fixation on the kids gets a bit old.
Right now, we are kind of bumming hard. DW has been sick twice since starting her period, two different kinds of sick back to back. She has been miserable. Today is cd 20, and still no smiley on our OPKs. DW usually ovulates on cd 18, so I think the illness has pushed O back. Tank has been here since Tuesday. In addition, we just discovered that this month is actually our last attempt until next summer... we had planned to try Nov and Dec, but that timing won't work. So after this... We have to be done trying for a little while.
Things are pretty disappointing in our neck of the woods.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
