Trigger scheduled for tonight, insem Wed. a.m.
My best to everybody ---
whoo hoo outdoorsy! hope this is it for you!!
e2w - sounds like your timing turned out better than you could have planned !
scorpio - that is frustrating. Looking at your chart, it does look like CD18 was O for you. Have you read that book Taking Charge of Your Fertility? They recommend using three 'symptoms' to pinpoint O - like BBT, CM, OPKs, cervix position, etc. Or whatever three signs work for you. Any one or two signs can be misleading, but when you have more signs, they give you a better picture. Hopefully having more chart data over time will help you be more familiar with your cycle too. Do you know how many days your cycle was before you started charting?
AFM - hot flashes have started. two shots down. yay, i guess?
fmmorris. yay! good luck. .
outdoorsy. . I am going to be sending you serious vibes from Wed morning and for about ten days after that! FX THIS IS IT!
erin. . baby dust to you! hope this donor makes the difference. or hope something makes the difference!
mrsandmrs. . hang in there through those shots. . think end goal!!!!!!
AFU. . don't know what to think, temp dropped a little more this morning and had AF cramps but took my temp super early so who knows, took it again later after falling back asleep and it was a little higher so who knows. will test again in the AM and FX!! Just hope if AF is going to come she can wait until at least Wed or it will probably put me in that Sun-MOn zone that is bad for shipping!
mrsandmrs - yay to injection buddies! We just finished day one, which was not too bad...they are two separate shots. Though our process today for getting the syringes was a serious pain in the ass... we bought our meds overseas as they were cheaper & syringes were not provided. My wife also got her cd3 bloodwork done today but results won't be ready until tomorrow, we took a chance that all will look ok and started shots tonight....I will say that the process for mixing the Menopur & water was a little confusing, but it worked out. My wife said it was not too painful, phew.
good luck to everyone TTC, and happy October 1st!
so. . . . . I tested this morning and there was def a faint line. Barely there, but there. I don't know whether to be excited or scared or both. DH is not convinced and wants another test. If it is I seriously credit my miracle worker/witch doctor of an acupuncturist. Okay FX, FX! And of course I have to fly on Saturday which makes me nervous and I don't know why. It just seems like flying this early is bad, though I know I did it last time at this same exact time frame!
so Holy Crap. . it's official. . ,I took a digital and it said Pregnant! I am still in shock. Maybe I just needed that late Fed-Ex truck timing. . and acupuncture up the wazoo. . . It still feels so early I am just nervous and hard to just enjoy but I am trying to just think positive and be excited.
FX this sticks and I hope EVERYONE who is trying this month follows the same luck!! Please don't move me to graduates yet though. . still too scary!!
cordelia!!! this is the one! the baby that outdid the iphone 5!!! my fingers and toes are crossed for you so hard!
good luck on the inseminations, outdoorsy & fmorris.
erin - how is the TWW treating you? going crazy yet?
SanDiego -- I am keeping the cartridge in the pen in the fridge - the whole contraption. Our nurse told us that once you put the cartridge in, you dont take it out until it's empty so that's what we've been doing. How are the shots going for you? The third one for me was painful. We got a bad angle with the needle and we were rushed (sometimes you need emergency thai food even if you have a shot scheduled, right?) My wife is currently having a routine, totally normal, non-emergency, non-dramatic surgery (as in, I am in the waiting room at the hospital talking myself down off the worrying ledge) and I am panic-stricken about her being able to give me a shot tonight! Will her painkillers interfere with our babymaking? Stay tuned!
Hi there, I'm new and ready to jump in :)
My partner, Chessa (31), and I (29) are starting the process of TTC! We've picked a donor and have the sperm waiting for us at the bank. We are planning to do our first IUI 24 hours after my +opk which should be sometime next week. We're doing the IUI at my ob's office. The timing will only get a little tricky if our work schedule's get in the way -- I am a restaurant GM and Chessa is a head chef, and they are both jobs that are a little tricky to just step out from. We are planning to match our schedules and avoid any close-to-open shifts so that we can hopefully both make it to the IUI.
Right now I guess it's just the waiting game, and we are going crazy waiting to O! Suddenly we are seeing babies everywhere and commercial seems to be about moms, etc. :)
I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone on here, good luck with everyone trying a cycle this month!
