Wow that was a lot to catch up on... I had unexpected houseguests for two days and had to secretly pop my clomid in the kitchen
: My friends would be shocked I am sure... an old friend who has moved back and resurfaced into my life. She is quite the fertile one in the past though, and was talking about her strange food cravings and shooting me furtive looks and I am thinking, please, PLEASE
do not tell me you are pg because I will really lose it. I just got up and went to the bathroom.
Other than that the clomid has been pretty mellow at this point, it seems to be most difficult closer to ovulation ? I read some interesting things about it ... your estrogen is 3x higher than normal, the enodmetrium is improved and of course the luteul phase is improved with the giant progesterone boost. It helped calm my anxieties about taking it... that it is useful for things besides annovulation. I just feel like it's one more thing to try in the toolbox, the last thing I pulled out was a HSG, now clomid, next is a lap I guess ? IUI in a distant future ? Beyond that I think we would be done with worrying over ttc and move on to adoption.
To those who mentioned feeling left out of all the clomid suff
, well, I guess anyone on this thread who has been trying for awhile could talk to their dr about it. I have been considering it (and reading about it on this thread ) for a long time, and had to pretty much coerce the dr to give it to me. I hope you all get your BFPs before it ever comes to fertility drugs.
Ok you all are killing me with the craft and glass beads talk.... you don't know the way my life has revolved around glass lampwork beads in the last few years. My DH is a glass artist and we have made a good deal of our living selling his lampwork beads on ebay (as well as other places). So I am soooo there with you ! I used to make my own glass beads before dd was born, and someday I will be back on the torch. I also have dabbled with jewelry but honestly since the ttc started dragging out last year I have felt very uninspired. I'm the same way you are, Lily and Ity
I don't really wear a lot of jewelry but I like making it. Oh and of course I am an amateur crocheter. Taught myself from a book, a friend taught me a bit more. I don't think I am great at it but I like doing it.
I would love to see pictures of jewelry if anyone wants to pm me Stephanie
I have an ex-BF from long ago who had a problem... finishing
. It gets to a point where it is no fun anymore. How frustrating !Valerie
... I looked at your chart and I think maybe it will become clear with a few more temps ? When in doubt... GIO at least every other day and your bases will be covered.
OK it is late, more tomorrow
