Queer Conceptions--September 2012 - Page 13

post #241 of 317

Pokey:  Great news! I really hope this is it for you.  You're such a wonderful cheerleader for the rest of us that, no matter what happens, you need to stick around just to keep us all going!  <3

 

Cordelia: I was feeling proud about only once per day... I sense there is still some room for improvement.  AND.  I didn't start testing until 6dpo -- and that was to see if the trigger was gone.  I think I'm making great strides!!! LOL!  Glad you were able to work things out with your donor this month!

 

Hoping/invitn: How are you doing?  How many dpo?

AHHHHHH. . my swimmers are stuck on a FEDEX truck and I don't know where they are!!!!!!!!!  Please say a quick wish/prayer/vibe that they get here soon or they will be all messed up!  The dispatcher said they were all behind because of the 1000's of iphone orders. . um, is this my problem???  

post #245 of 317

Cordelia - Oh no!  I'm doing a dance to the FedEx gods.  Maybe we'll use UPS?  Geez, you pay to get something by a certain time, you should get it, iPhone craziness or not.

 

I really, really hope everything works out for you.  Keep us updated.

thanks. . I'm trying not to stress but it's not working.   I think we are going to go out for a drink. . I at least wish they would tell us when it would get here bc I am supposed to schedule acupuncture too.

Cordelia, So glad the swimmers arrived! What a stressful mess. I hope everything is OK. Happy insemming! ..... and yes, PLEASE, definitely do kick me and Pokey off the island. We need to get the heck out of here! (But of course with some voluntary hanging around to support you wonderful women!)

Seriously!  Three people having eight babies?  Care to share?  Kidding of course - so happy for all of them.  

 

Cordelia - Phew!  That must have been nerve-wracking, but sounds like a happy ending.  Hope you enjoyed your drink, and hope it's your last for a while!

Anyone in the Bay Area know of a midwife that does inseminations with fresh sperm?  Obviously not IUI, just just at home (preferably) help getting an IVI or ICI correct?  Not set on it, but definitely something we might look into.  I emailed the two midwives suggested by TSBC, and one never responded, and the other doesn't work with fresh sperm.

 

Any thoughts on whether or not it's even worth it?  Is getting it in there with a needleless syringe just about the best we're going to do?

Yeah all...seriously...after TWO FREAKING YEARS of trying...you would think ONE would have stuck before now. Three at once, really???? Let me tell you all...when you least expect it, apparently it happens.

Thinking good fertile thoughts for you all....but not in multiples (unless it's in your plan! wink1.gif)

hoping, sorry for the BFN.hug2.gif I hope the next time is it!

 

cordelia, PHEW! ive been bogged down literally all day since I got to work and this is the first time I could post! First, I was gonna do some super praying for the swimmers, but then I saw you got em! Sometimes you have to stalk FedEx :)

 

mrs., if there's something in that water I'd sure like a nice tall glass! lol Thats pretty amazing though!!

 

Lise, THATS SO AWESOME. If you look at it,  you just made up for the 2 yrs of TTC! The Baby Gods rewarded you for all your hard work with three little miracles jumpers.gif. CONGRATS

post #258 of 317

hopin. . sorry for the BFN, hugs and rallying for the next go!  

 

lisedea. . commented on the other thread but congrats again from this one. . overwhelming but amazing ride! 

 

jenny. . the room for improvement made me lol . I am not convinced i won't be testing early again either but will try! 

 

outdoorsy and pokey. . okay you are officially kicked off the island. . smile.gif though visits back would be great though hopefully it will be a whole new board to visit as we all join you guys. . 

 

easttowest . IDK anything about midwives in SF, I do know that if they do do it (and many won't for legal reasons) that it has to really be fresh, meaning you can't have it in TYB which you can't insert through the cervix bc it can lead to a lot of infections. but again, that's just what I have read, heard, etc. . not medical proof.  

 

AFU. . we are officially done with our insems this round. . thanks so much for your support during my earlier frantic posts. . I mean where else can you get such great support for being panicked the fed-ex truck has lost your sperm!  honestly though, I think knowing there were folks out there rooting for me helped!!  I really appreciated all of your responses!  Even went to my evening acupuncture appointment where she gave me the electric needles which I love because it really feels like they are doing some magic. . going back on Monday for one more session then taking a week off bc it's a lot of money. . carmen I know you are right about sliding scale places but this women is amazing and it's worth it for me!  (at least for now!)

Lise: Wow. Absolutely Wow. 3 miracle beans. That's crazy and wonderful all in the same breath. What were all the medications were on this cycle? Just wondering?

 

Cordelia What a funny tale of trying to track your precise seed. Let me tell you what- this cycle the FEDex truck was 20 mins late and I was raising some heck. Poor unknowing employee at the FedEx Kinko's location.... whoever you are- I'm sorry. Glad everything worked out for you!!!

 

Oh can I vote myself as a candidate too for getting kicked off the island. love you guys but been treading in this water for 2 years....

 

AFM: Thanks for all the wellwishin for this tww. today is 8dpo and it was confirmed today that my progesterone levels are really low: 3.9. No wonder the past two cycles I started spotting at day nine past ovulation. Hearing this number has scared me into immediately taking an old rx of suppositories I have. It's weird a bout a year ago before I ever started taking progesterone, levels checked one cycle- 8. something. Low but not crazy low. After two months on progesterone, I checked my levels one month- 23. something: Super high. The nurse was adament that the high number was reflection of my natural levels of progesterone saying that the progesterone suppositories couldn't get into the blood system like that. Anyway I was on suppositories for a total of maybe 7 months and stopped after being encouraged to do so by a Naturapath I started to see. Well after hearing this news today about my really low level - I definitely need to supplement but the side effect suck.

Does anyone know whether having been on progesterone supplements when you may not terribly need it may cause havoc on progesterone?

Ofcourse I have been googling "reasons for low progesterone" and the one that stands out is having high estrogen which I've been told in the past. Has anyone heard of natural treatment to help regulate estrogen? Has anyone heard of good research around this issue? Shout out here to Krista, any thoughts wise onesmile.gif

Ladies, Ima bit down....well A LOT down. Its not related to DP and I's TTC. But it does deal with us. So we just had an argument on mye lunch break (like an hour ago), and i'm all over the place now. Im mad, upset, frustrated, confused, and feel like the gum on the bottom of someones shoe right now! greensad.gif When we have an argument it literally makes meeh sick...physically. So not only am I dealing with AF, now mye whole body just hurts. I feel awful. Worst thing is i'm suppose to start mye Femara tomorrow nd this whole thing is putting such a downer on a cycle i was feeling great and so very optimistic about. I'm trying not to stress about it, but how not!!! help.gif
