Queer Conceptions June 2012 - Page 8

post #141 of 190

Quickie post as we're on our way to Bellingham for the day....11 DPO today and I had a hunch so I dug around and found an extra internet cheapie pregnancy test....BFP! No squinting required - definitely there. As expected, after 4 m/c I'm more scared than anything. But I do have some hope. I can get in for a blood test tomorrow but I'm not sure I'll be able to get it again until Thursday. So I might wait and go Thursday and Saturday next week. Cross your fingers for me....here I go again.

We had another IUI this morning, rather annoying nurse, but the IUI went just fine and there was plenty of EWCM and 36 million sperm...so fingers crossed.  Oh, and DW things she o'd sometime between yesterday's insem and today's...

AFM- I have a new username.  My other one made it too easy to find my real name.  This is Pride weekend in San Francisco.  Happy Pride to everyone celebrating this weekend!

post #151 of 190

Thanks for the encouragement, everyone! It warms my heart (sounds cheesy but true!) love.gif Wow, I'm honoured you rubbed your child on your keyboard for me, isa! lol And omom, I was due in March 2012 with you if you remember....now I'll be due in March 2013 if this little one sticks around....wow, time flies.

 

It's really very hard for me to actually believe this will become a real live baby one day but for now I'm pregnant again and I'm pretty happy about that. I've had AF type cramping on and off all day which I believe is a great sign at this point. I've decided to skip the blood test tomorrow and just wait until Thursday. I'll test again on Monday (14DPO) and if it's still positive I'll go in for a blood test on Thursday. I feel like I need to test again because if it ends up being a chemical pregnancy I don't want to keep taking the progesterone unnecessarily (and I bought some digital tests in Bellingham today...so much cheaper down there!). I have a CRAZY busy week with my last week of some training I've been doing for work so I'll be nice and distracted being stressed about my final presentation and exam thumb.gif

 

PS For those of you who are friends with me on Facebook - please don't mention anything as we don't share any baby info until safely into the 2nd trimester.

 

ETA: DP prefers to see a digital for proof - she worries that the lines aren't exactly the same darkness on the internet cheapies I use...so sharing my test results from this morning :)

CARMEN.... CONGRATS....fx for a sticky bean!!!!!!!

Carmen: Congratulations! joy.gifjoy.gifjoy.gifjoy.gifjoy.gif

Stick, little one, stick!

 

AFM:  AF arrived today! I ovulated again this month, no drugs required! *Happy Dance!*

post #155 of 190

Wahoo!!!! RS11!!!  

 
AFM: I am ::allegedly:: in my high fertile phase right now according to my ovacue, however I have not yet caught a positive OPK.  I have the shortest LH surge ever, so I nearly always miss it when it happens.  Waiting for the ovacue to present with a positive for ovulation completed -- should be within the next 4 days or so.
 
Wishin'  I have everything crossed for you!  Hope those little guys find the target and everyone decides to hang around!
 
 
And for the heck of it, I got one of these for myself this weekend: http://www.crystalmedicinebags.com/Fertility-pocket-size-Crystal-Medicine-Bags_p_14.html
 
Btw, I recently participated in a kickstarter for a children's book by Cory Silverberg:  http://www.what-makes-a-baby.com/
 
 
It is FANTASTIC.  Seriously recommend picking up a copy when it is available for purchase to the general public.  It describes the conception story for EVERY kind of family without talking about sex!  Truly great start for this discussion, at any age.
 
post #156 of 190

rs: Great news! I hope the same thing happens this month!

 

Jenny: Do you track other signs other than the ovacue? I just learned of the Cory Silverberg book and was surprised when I tried to buy a copy that it's not available yet. I hope it is soon as I've recently heard so many good things about it.

 

 

Afm: 14DPO. AF is due today or tomorrow but I'm still taking the progesterone so I doubt it would show up anyway. I took another digital preg test this morning and "pregnant" came up at 21 seconds (I had to dip it for 20 seconds). Much quicker than the last one 2 days ago so I hope that means my hcg is going up nicely. I'm bloated and my breasts feel like weights on my chest. I remember that with DD but not with the last few pregnancies - probably because I was still nursing DD. I'm managing to keep calm most of the time but I have moments of panic. I didn't have an acupuncture appointment set up until next week but she is going to squeeze me in on Wednesday night as well.

Carmen: I used to do bbt charts for awhile.  Then they never really showed a pattern because my cycles were so bizarre.  So, I got out of the habit.  I meant to start up again this last cycle, but then I forgot.  I'm planning to do it again once AF shows up this time.  My temps were so low, they were off the charts!   I do have quite a bit of fluid, but it's never quite EWCM.  It's enough to be annoying though!

 

Hoping I don't forget this cycle and that it is in line with what I'm seeing on the ovacue.  (The fluid certainly seems to be this time!)
