lea, I'm glad you're feeling a bit better... Good news on the test results! I'm amazed that IUIs are covered in some areas but not others... It's just so complicated.
Complain away, scorp, that's what we're here for!!! And we're all still rooting for you! That first BFN was meaningless!
Congrats on graduating, Lindsey! Yes, that does sound like a scary situating during your first birth... It's pretty much exactly why my DP still wants a midwife-delivered hospital birth for our eventual pregnancy, and I totally understand why. Regardless of what we end up going with, I'll be choosing a midwife instead of a doctor for my care, if only because they give many more pre- and post-natal visits, and also can sign clients out of the hospital as soon as the baby is deemed fit: One friend of mine was literally there for only two hours! I'll have a look for the Baby Catcher at my library.
Hi samy, I'm sorry to say I'm with the others: It really is a long shot... But amazing things can and do happen, so go for it!
Yes, Friederike, I thought that there was some interesting divisions in the stats in TBOBB too: Like in Germany, I think most of the midwife-deliveries are also hospital-deliveries here in my part of Canada, which made me wonder how they did the math on that. Having a midwife around here is more about pre-natal care than it is about the location of the birth. I wish my local hospital had a birth pool, how rad is that!!! Even if we plan on actually birthing at the hospital, friends have suggested setting up a pool at home anyway, in case of a long labour... The hospital sends clients home for that, and our bathtub is probably too tiny to be much comfort.
How made DPO are you, Darcy?!! I took progesterone (on a stalled cycle, to restart it) and had no side effects at all... FX that this is actual early pregnancy for you!
Lizbian, you can probably buy it online... If not, let me know and I'll send you some! (Heh heh... Cuz customs officials *love* seeing packages of dried herbs sent from my part of Canada...)
Fx for you, twomommyfamily! And booo for bloating... I'm starting AF and feeling the same.
And fx for you too, Sphinxy! Looking forward to hearing tomorrow's news... And it's still so early, a BFN wouldn't be definitive by any means.
, lovingisliving! I hope your stay here is short and sweet.
AFM: Spotting today, expecting full AF by this evening. Which means I'll be starting clomid on Monday or Tuesday, and I'm so excited! It's funny, I'd just be so grateful if my body would actually ovulate and my RE would actually be available and I would actually be in town for the insem date... I mean, of course I want a healthy pregnancy and a kid, but right now I'd settle for a successful attempt at getting there!
