You even sound like you can enjoy this bit - makes me tear up! I hope you and dh can celebrate this, I'm with Chrissy let us know about dd!
Welcome here mama blue! This is a wonderful group of ladies, and I know you'll fit right in 😄
Fx the meds work for you this month
Chrissy your beads look fab all strung together like that... Notes, o poo I didn't even think of that - sorry ladies!
Indie, Jpack - I'm still fx for you guys this month... I know there's not been any great signs yet, but I'm feeling optimistic...
😳 Ok tmi, he doesn't ever self close... I know you think I'm naive but when doing a treatment we muscle tested on him to see if all was ok - it was but that got checked as part of it... So??? Lol... I'll talk to him after this month looks like a definite bust...
Ok I did some energy work last night, everyone's babies absorbed energy really well, as did the ladies waiting to o... I was cheeky and did sila baby one then sila baby two, both took energy... No baby three though 😜 but it could be a fluke maybe lol😉... So hanging out for that...
Sherry - I hope things have started to settle down?
TF - what fun relaxing stuff have you got on, did you book that massage?
Afm - I'm thinking on all my advice and just waiting to talk to him (I figure if nothing else it should make him get to it lol) also ordered some maca that we will both take (even if I have to pour it on food!
I do have a slight chance this month, one well times non closure session... So I'll wait and see for a week - it'll be obvious one way or another...post #1245 of 15195/8/13 at 2:20pmpost #1246 of 15195/8/13 at 3:00pmpost #1247 of 15195/8/13 at 3:10pmpost #1248 of 15195/8/13 at 6:42pmpost #1249 of 15195/8/13 at 6:44pmpost #1250 of 15195/8/13 at 7:07pm
Chuord - Fingers crossed for you and dh.
Indie - I'm so sorry this cycle is out for you. Hugs!
SKJ - Congrats again!!
Jpack - Hope your follie grew!
daurelia - I'm so sorry this happened to you.
Sherry - Best of luck on getting things done. And smacking yourself on the forehead won't help. lol
mamablue - Welcome! I hope your stay is short!
Ahhhh. Our grads are twin boys and 2 little girls. So exciting!
Afm - Mom has an appointment on Saturday the 18th. She talked to the secretary and she has no idea why Mom is to see this doctor. Secretary looked over the MRI and just said "All I see is fluid. Am I missing something?" So mom explained that her Doc basically told her she needed to see the cancer dr and she'll probably have her uterus removed along with this ovary. Secretary highly doubts it all since "it's just fluid". So mom'll get a pelvic and the doctor will tell her what he thinks. I told Mom what Sherry said (thank you, Sherry!!) and that eased her mind.
I'm having issues with how my mind thinks on things. I really wish there was someone close that I can talk to but I have noone IRL. People just don't realize how lucky they are to be able to pick up a phone and call or text someone when they need to talk.(I'm a texter. lol) Or get together for coffee or some such. Oh well. FML. :)post #1251 of 15195/8/13 at 8:01pmHey everyone. I am laying in bed looking at these great beads from all over. I have decided to keep them on my nightstand near my basal thermometer. It will be nice to think about whilst I await the beep. It also makes me feel less alone here in the woods in this often empty bed. Thanks everyone!
Skj congrats- sweet sisters! How nice.
We have 2 boys and 2 girls. SILA- you will be the tie breaker unless you have one of each in there.
Welcome mama blue.
Tf OK I get that. Peace on this stretch of the journey.
Chrissy. Glad to hear about your mom. It is also reassuring that the appointment could wait that long. They must not be too concerned. Hey- I understand isolation. I am an only child with aging parents a "single" ( ya know ehst i mean) mom of 5. I left my closest friends behind years ago moved to pA and then left those friends to move to bk where I didn't really make any....now I am here....my closest Bff is the guy down the road who drives around on his tractor and came and flattened a spot on the yard for me. I am so glad for the friends we have here. You have this TTC thing a worry about your mom and the stress of what's going on with your son. Welcome to the sandwich generation. You are not alone here.
More I wanted to say but I am falling asleep...do tomorrow........zzzzzzzxpost #1252 of 15195/8/13 at 10:09pmpost #1253 of 15195/9/13 at 3:48am
Thanks lovely ladies, I really do appreciate you all. You are awesome!!! Sorry I have been away since my last post due to poor internet connectivity in my area.
SKJ: Congratulations!!! Now can pregnancy really begin? Lol!
Sila: When are you doing your US again? Cant wait to see if Chuord is right .
Gtree: such cute babies!!
Chrissy and Sherry: I hear you. Sometimes I feel like I could use a little chat with someone who perfectly understands how I feel and will not criticize me.
Indie and Jpack: Ladies I am rooting for you both, I wish you good luck with the meds and hope that you take it easy on yourselves.
Chuord: I actually did have these issues with DH for a while until I decided to let the matter drop and he began to get more interest on his own. I know it may not be the same for you, but I will try to suggest that you find what ultimately relaxes him days before you Ov and get him in the mood gently without even saying or doing anything to suggest BD, kind of like acting aloof and teasing him on. And I agree that you get all the help you can find to assist your conception, but do not feel pressured by age and time.
TF: Fingers and toes tightly crossed for you that this time you will definitely have an angel for keeps!
Mamablue: Welcome, make yourself comfortable!
AFM: Food aversions are gone for now, and back ache seems to have increased. Still trying to get myself into the DDC, but I enjoy this forum better . I am not showing yet, but I have definitely added some weight...and its showing. My co-staff are beginning to notice, but I have not officially told them yet. So its a little awkward for me now. I know I cant keep it secret much longer, I will have to decide on when to tell them. I should be doing my first scan on Monday, but not with my OB's consent . I am hoping I will have a lovely pic to show you Ladies.post #1254 of 15195/9/13 at 6:07amLucille - fx on the scan... I love pics! Thanks for the words if wisdom, it's much appreciated... Lol I've been 'intelligently emotionally' sabotaging myself... Waiting and being encouraging subtley and then ruining it with the panicked - we're missing it again lol... Even at the time I know it's the dumbest thing 😝 but between you, you ladies have given me plenty if ideas for moving forward!
So are you relaxing into pg yet?post #1255 of 15195/9/13 at 6:29amThread Starter
Lucille/Chuord - I called and left a message to schedule yesterday. I'll let you know as soon as I do! I'm nervous for it. Nervous excited and just nervous nervous.
I'm going in to get my P4 drawn today so I can start weaning off my PIO. Only like 5 more shots in the butt to go! I felt so so gross yesterday...sorry I didn't get to reply to everyone. Maybe today is my bead day...post #1256 of 15195/9/13 at 7:42amAlright... time to catch up.
Jpack - Way to stick up for yourself. I'm in a similar place now with my OB. My RE wants me on lovenox and baby aspirin until 30+ weeks and my OB is saying 20 weeks. So, I've got an appointment with a hematologist based on a recommendation of my RE. My RE also thinks I should stay on the metformin. My prescription is almost up, so I'm going to have to bring it up with my OB and I'm scared he's going to say it's not necessary. I hate that we have to fight the docs to get what we need. Especially when the risk of metformin is so low. I asked my RE and she said it's basically risk free. The only down side is GI side effects, of which I've had none. Hope the IUI went well. Which doctor are you switching to?
indie - I'm so bummed that your well researched IVF cycle didn't go as planned. I hope you get a miracle with this ovulation. I'll be silently hoping for you since I know getting your hopes up is so draining. Also, good point about metformin and stims. I remember reading that it can lower your AFC. I was really worried about that, but then I realized that I wasn't trying to get a bunch of eggs, so it didn't really matter. But, Jpack, if you are planning IVF next, that could be a concern. BTW, I don't think it helped at all with weight, but I was hoping it would
Has your doctor gotten back to you? I'm so interested in what she has to say about mini-IVF. It just really seems like the right option for you and I hope she's on board so you don't feel like you are fighting to get what you want. Thanks for the blog. I'm going to check it out.
mamaBlue - Welcome! Good luck with this cycle! I hope your BFP is just a couple weeks away.post #1257 of 15195/9/13 at 7:57amChuord - Thanks for all the love. I am finally starting to feel excited about things. It feel pretty amazing, although scary at the same time. I'm sorry things are difficult with DH. I hate that making babies requires lots of unromantic sex when you are in our shoes. It just sucks. I think lucille's advice is great. It's hard to weigh options of getting medical help and realizing that it might not help the situation. I hope you find a solution soon.
TF - Good luck with your FET. Do what you need to do to stay sane.
Chrissy - It sounds like the stuff going on with your mom is not too serious. What a huge relief. I can't wait for her to see the doc so you can have some more specifics on what to do. I'm sorry you are feeling so isolate. I feel that way a lot too. I have people to talk to, but they often don't say the most helpful things, so I've been keeping things to myself a lot more lately and it's very isolating. Please email when you need to talk. I'm here to listen any time.
Sherry - Good idea with the beads by your BBTherm. I can't wait to get them. Hopefully today. Hoping so hard that the timing works out for you and DH this month. Now that #2 is a girl, I'm going to be needing your advice on how to handle so many females under one roof
Lucille - Glad you are starting to feel better. I can't wait for your scan!!!
sila - Can't wait to hear when your scan is. Do you have a feeling if it's one or two? I'm so excited that you are almost off the progesterone. I'm in my weaning week and feeling good about it. I'm ready to just stop taking it, but I'm going to keep up with every other day for about a week.
AFM - THANK YOU all so much for all the support over the last year or however long it's been. Yesterday, I started to believe that this could actually happen. I'm still nervous as I know WAY too many horror stories, but I'm hopeful that this little baby girl growing inside of me is my take home baby.
I told my family and a couple close friends yesterday. Turns out my SIL is also pregnant and due a week after me. They were trying for a year, so it's pretty incredible that we both got lucky at the same time. My brother was very sweet and told me he was really worried about having to tell me their news and was hoping that I was calling with some good news to tell them. I really appreciate that he understood how hard it would have been for me, so that was nice.
DD said she wants to call the baby , "baby sister". She's super creative My inlaws got to town this morning, so I'll probably be a little MIA for the next couple of weeks, but I'll be reading along.
Next OB appointment is a week from this coming Monday. Hoping I can survive until then. Oh, and DD's 3rd bday is tomorrow.
Gonna go work on my ticker...post #1258 of 15195/9/13 at 9:27amHappy birthday to your DD, SKJ! Mine will be four next month- wow.
Chuord, one thing to maybe try is planning ahead, and remember that three days befor o, two days before, even the day after (if you o late in the day and bd early) -- it all helps. So maybe planning a romantic weekend, working around his sched (am? Mid day?) might help? That my thought- also he's a doctor, right? I mean, he should have a sense of his capacity in an iui situation- maybe you should just ask what he'd prefer? Anyway, that's my advice!
Afm- I'll start the met once they get the results back about liver and kidney function- hopefully soon. Yeah, I did read that, too, indie and SKJ, about the response. Since I have to take the next two- three cycles off (cycle will start just before I leave, and I'll probably have close to two cycles in Portland, so it'll be three depending on IVF protocol when I get back) I plan on just taking the met through that natural stuff, depending on my gut (literal and figurative). I would stop it before IVF, or stop and start or whatever. That's my plan, anyway. Thanks so much for helping me work through all this, guys!
Oh, about the new doc- he's the director at the clinic we go to. I'm gonna not say his name, rather share about him (I know HIPPA doesn't work in this direction, but I feel better that way). The story is that his husband worked with me on the auction committee and he did my hysteroscopy (as you all may recall... ).
I see him on the 21st so that I can have sme semblance of a plan before I go away. Yay! Geez. I'm sick of this stuff, guys!post #1259 of 15195/9/13 at 1:23pmThread Starter
Oh my goodness my beads came!!!! You are all the most beautiful and amazing groups of ladies I have ever known. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of you! I'm off to figure out what order I want to put them in to string them up!
ETA: TF sorry you had to spend 35 cents on me! I didn't take into account notes...
