Queer Conceptions - August 2012 - Page 3
cananny - i just saw the pic on FB. omg, i am freaking out for you.
sorry for drive-by posting. hi everyone! i just spend a ton of money on sperm and follistim! so i am going to be back here in a few weeks ! feeling very broke and hopeful ! hopefully you all will be pregnant in 2 weeks so i won't be ttc'ing with you. fingers crossed all around!
easttowest and cordelia - I hope your insems go well and the best of luck to you in getting your BFP this month! Keep us posted.
easttowest - congrats on first insem. You are officially on the TTC train! Enjoy the ride.
AFM - I took my first shot of Menopur last night and I had my first ultrasound this morning. It seems my left ovary is quite the work horse. I started out with 12 follicles on the left and 5 on the right. Now I have one bigger one on the right, and like 8 on the left. I'm already starting to feel it on the left so the next week should be interesting. I'm excited that our chances will be better this month but also kind of nervous. You have to be a lot more careful with injectables and the chance of multiples is much higher. I would love to have twins, but not more than that. I don't want to be faced with having to reduce. Uggh. I'm getting ahead of myself. I will work on relaxing and taking this one day at a time.
Good luck to Cananny and pokey!!!!
Monk I think we are in the same boat as you guys. I think your YouTube video was very honest and open, makes me think of our journey.
AFU: my body finally decided it was time to be fertile by the opk's, so we inseminated at home today with an IUI catheter. It was a little uncomfortable and DP thought she would hurt me, but it went fine overall. I just hope the timing was right, 31 hours post first positive. We even took at peek at the swimmers under the scope! They were just squirming along, which baffled us bc they are a year old!!! So now it will be her turn next week on Monday I believe. I think our bodies are trying to sink up which will save us $$ in the long run on shipping woohoo!!
I forgot already who is thread keeper but can you move me to 2ww please?
ErinTNgirl. . good luck! sounds like it went well. . hopefully you won't need to worry about syncing up bc this will just be it! THAT would save you on shipping
Pokey. . wow, I hear you, I think anything over two would be hard. . hope you don't have to worry about that and you get one or two perfect little nuggets!
we did our first insem this morning (or i did by myself) and DH is going to do the second tomorrow (though our KD said he might have melted the PLASTIC test tube trying to sterilize it first) though I think that was my fault hope that plastic doesn't mess up the swimmers . Here's hoping! I guess I can be moved to the 2WW now. .
WOO HOO! So many insems going on this week! Let's hope we have some fantastical BFP's for everyone!
Erin: Are you and your partner trying to get pregnant at the same time?
Pokey: Sounds like you're having a great response already! Here's hoping you get just the right number of babies for your uterus! :-)
CANanny: I'm still rocking and rolling with excitement over here for you! Stick baby, STICK!
Cordelia: Good luck to you, too!!!
AFM: Today is day 3 of my being on bactrim and I'm still having urgency/frequency to pee. Still have pressure in my belly, but the doctor said it appears to be bladder and not uterus. So, at least we can definitely rule out infection of my uterus. They did a urine check and the first part of the test came back negative, so now I'm waiting for a culture -- results on Thursday. She said it's possible that it is very early symptoms, that it's not very common but that sometimes women do get that. I also have a lot of gas...
Jenny- As of now we are trying together for better odds. If we both get pregnant so be it, but there
is no actual plan anymore. We just want a baby!
AFM: Just curious on what you guys think about my timing. I have always had 2 days of positive
OPK's and I know it does not matter as much as your other signs but this is day 3 with a
positive Internet cheapie...I also have egg white CM and my temp is the same as yesterday.
So what do you guys think?!
ErinTNgirl. . sounds like your timing is good but I am crap at this. . I think I did it too early this month but we'll see I did day 1/2 of internet cheapies and I think I should have waited since the line did not get dark until today and apparently with the ones I use a light line is not even a positive but since we were mailing stuff overnight as opposed to in person I was so panicked we would miss O that I did it early. Now I am just mad at myself. I need to get calmer about this because I know it could be a long process and this is just our second month. For you, Egg white CM is a great sign! That would be crazy if you both got pregnant together. . my sis and her DW were going to do that but ended up doing it one after the other, their kids are 16 months apart!
erin - 31 hours after positive OPK sounds like good timing to me. Were you having EWCM then too? It can last for several days and that's totally normal and healthy. I find OPK's hard to read so I use digital. It's more expensive but it seems more definitive. As I recall, you are on the younger side. I have heard that younger women can have longer surges where you can detect it for a longer period of time, whereas older women may have a shorter surge. It can take a little time for the temp to rise. For example, if you ovulated overnight, your temp in the morning might not have risen but you would see a rise the next day. Have you noticed any sensation in one of your ovaries? I can usually feel something around O time.
cordelia - Welcome to the TWW! I hope it passes quickly and smoothly. Good luck!
jenny - I hope those are positive signs and it's not just that you're sick! Only time will tell. Take it easy.
