escher good luck for the progesterone test. There is nothing wrong with being hopeful/optimistic. If we didn't think there was any chance of it working it wouldn't be worth doing, right?
justanotherjenny good luck!
friederike hope you get to enjoy your weekend with friends - does DP go with you, or are you on your own? Sorry about being out for this month but great you can have IUI at the doc's office. I think you're going to be a couple of days behind us - looking like Wed/Thursday next week x
lea ooo good luck for your TWW & sorry DW couldn't make it but keeping FX for you that this is the one x
fmorris it's great DP is getting into the baby thing now, it was the same with my DW now she's right into it! It's funny looking at houses thinking that we need to have room enough for 1/2 kids! Grow follies, grow!!!
sandiego wow that's a lot of follies. FX for one fantastic one! Good luck for the insem
kwpx2 I think that's a great decision to make. As you say, you don't want your kids to have hundreds of offspring. Great you can get a 'known' donor too. We discussed that but in the end because we're going to Denmark they don't allow open donors & we decided we were OK with that. It's a hard decision to make & we had a conversation with a psychologist friend of ours the other day. We were talking about adopted kids finding out their parents & she hadn't thought about the fact that having one natural parent would make a difference to the child in the long term (hopefully won't feel rejected!). Great you have an agreement with DW & FX they're a good donor!!!! We went the same route with them having reported pregnancies. May not make any difference but every little bit helps, eh!
AFM wow I am so much better now, the antibiotics have really kicked in & I've managed to sleep through the night without coughing. Still not made it to the gym but hoping tomorrow will be the day. Ordered the swimmers to be sent from Denmark tomorrow, I am going to start the process of sending them back either tomorrow or Monday, but I don't want to jinx them getting stopped in customs. Our insem date looks to be next Wed/Thursday. Wed is fine but I'm teaching crazy hours on Thursday so it's going to be a bit of a mission but we'll get it done!
I have a telephone appointment with the Danish IVF clinic in 2 weeks today to discuss options. I like to get the ball rolling so that if this next cycle doesn't work we can start to plan going over in June. Good luck to anyone insemming/ultrasounding in the next few days & looking forward to being in a (healthy) TWW next week x
