Wow, so much going on I'm having a hard time keeping up again!
outdoorsy: Sorry about AF
Angela: How are you doing in your first TWW this time around?
Cananny: Any sign of AF today? What medication do they give you to start it?
mrsandmrs: I hope the u/s was gentle and went ok!
rs: Good luck with the IUI today!!
bwilliamson: Enjoy the cruise (<---waving from the dock)
Allison: I have been told to ditch the temping too but I actually enjoy it and it give me fairly good information on when I O'd. I'm in Fairview Slopes btw so not as far west as you :)
esenbee: I don't think it's naive to expect you'd get pregnant right away. I always like to tell people there is no reason not to think you aren't fertile and able to get pregnant easily. Unless there is a known issue or really irregular cycles, etc. I believe it's better to go in thinking positive and expecting the best.
invitn: I think if you are doing more than one insem with fresh you could do one before the surge. It depends on when you O relative to your surge. This time around we don't start until I get a positive opk or Peak on the monitor - sometimes we start the day before. So, no I don't think it's necessary but it can't hurt!
Hopeful: Yay for high temps!
Afm: To answer the two QOTD I missed....I gave up caffeine about a month or so before starting TTC and I don't drink it at all. I do drink decaf coffee and decaf black tea though. And as for keeping busy while TTC...it's a lot easier this time around as a 2 year old is fairly distracting ;) My DP isn't as vocal or communicative about TTC as me so she doesn't really talk about it at all actually. I get it all out on here ;)
I'm halfway through the cleanse. I've had a dairy 3 times (a small amount) as a necessity or I would have starved when out lol It's going fine but a bit more intense on the bowels that I remember. I'm doing the Wild Rose cleanse (someone asked). My acupuncturist suggested it or one called Medi Cleanse. I've done the Wild Rose one in the past and it was 40 bucks compared with 300ish so I opted for the cheaper cleanse lol
After not spotting for a couple of days I started again with brown wet and ewcm. I started temping as well and my temps are much higher than usual for this time in my cycle. Although today it dropped a bit. I'm going to guess that I won't O this cycle. Which is fine...I'm still hoping for a normal length cycle though.
2 weeks until Vegas!
