holy moly! i step away from my computer for a few hours and there's suddenly almost a whole page of new posts. i have a feeling that this is going to be a crazy month.
mrs² -- yikes... i hadn't heard anyone else mention the super sensitive nipples as a side effect. did you have that before you triggered? clomid usually makes me an emotional wreck, but this time around i've just been having headaches. only four more days left to go! how are you doing symptom-wise?
anna -- sorry to hear about the sadness. i think pretty much every woman in here who has spent more than a couple of months ttc has experienced something similar, and it just sucks. you seem to have such an optimistic, sunny personality that it's hard to imagine you being low and discouraged for long. given today's weather, it seems that even mother nature is trying to cheer you up! how were your DP's temps today?
carpenter -- booooo to AF. it's such a major let down when she shows up during the first round of ttc, especially when you spend the TWW(T) feeling so very hopeful and noticing all kinds of "signs" that you never noticed before. i cried my eyes out the first month, because i'd been so sure that it had worked. bouldering sounds like a much more productive (and fun!) way to deal with the disappointment. in any case, i hope this month is the last time you see the nasty ole witch for a good long while.
desert -- right back atcha! do you and your DP have a favorite color or any colors you really hate? what's going on with the painting in the bedroom, btw???
southern -- WELCOME!!! wow, it sounds like you might be skipping this room altogether and jumping straight into QP&P. i'm a southern gul, too, though you wouldn't know it if you met me anywhere outside of my hometown. most of the time i have such a neutral accent that people can't figure out what country i'm from, but the minute i set foot in south carolina, the drawl just magically reappears. please, tell us more about yourself. oh, and i took the liberty of putting your name in the Waiting to Know list on the first page. i hope that's okay. good luck with your test this evening!
carmen -- i have every single appendage crossed for you (well, not literally, as that would make typing, walking, eating, etc. a bit difficult.) i'm with the other gals who have said that it's going to go well. let us know how it goes as soon as you can. until then, i'll be thinking about you and sending you lots of
lise -- don't worry, girl, my toesies are completely unscathed. i was happy that you posted the link, as it hadn't even occurred to me to do it. so what's going on with you this cycle? are you going to be inseminating soon? how about i share the threadkeeper's luck with you this month?
hopeful -- congrats on moving into the excruciating exciting part of ttc! this is your first month inseminating, right? fingers crossed that you have beginner's luck! btw, i love that all your furbabies have names that begin with "M". are you going to continue the tradition when you have your LO's?
afm... i almost started to think that the universe was trying to tell me to give up on this month. when i finished teaching today, i hopped on the metro and headed for the pharmacy where my precious puregon pen was waiting. it's normally about a 30-45 minute ride, but two minutes after i got on, the train lurched to a stopped and all the lights went out. i knew that i only had about an hour to get to the pharmacy before it closed, but instead of freaking out, i just told myself that it would work out if it was meant to... and lo and behold, i got there with about 15 minutes to spare. i didn't even have to pay for it! i am now the proud parent of this little beauty:
my first-ever self-injection took place when i finally got home, and it didn't hurt a bit! it's all a shot in the dark (pun very much intended), as there's no one to ask about dosage, and i won't be able to have an u/s until friday, but a girl can still hope.
