TTC 12 Months March Support Thread - Page 2

post #21 of 576
Lily - sorry you feel down. I'm glad you found those numbers though, since they make me feel pretty good about my chances at things.

Sarah - I don't like the pretend idea. My crosshairs are dotted but they seem to be pretty accurate right now. I think I just don't like the idea of my crosshairs being wrong (especially since they're finally in the right place).

On a way to TMI note, I have a TON of creamy CM today. It's kinda gross actually. And I have no idea why...

Christy I think your crosshairs are in the right place dotted or not, they're probably dotted because your cp was M instead of H.

Ok off topic, seriously this weather? ENOUGH ALREADY we don't have anywhere else to put this snow! I couldn't even get to my car when I got off the train, it was up to my knees. I had to wade through it, climb through the passenger side to get the snow brush and then dig myself out with the brush! I'm sweating and frustrated and tired and FED UP! Here's the best part, nobody got the snow blower out of the shed in the fall and now we can't get to it!

It's seriously miserable. Worse than miserable. Think spring think spring.

laughup You made me laugh out loud with this. I hope the weather lets up for you soon. Another storm just left us here on the west coast and is headed east, sorry to say. Hope you have food and good company stocked.




I just had to hop in for a moment and say Lily OMG thank you so much for your keychain gift, I love it. I like just running my fingers through it. Thank you, thank you, thank you ! You have totally made my day and put a smile on my face. The physical reminder of our solidarity, support, and hopes for each other is a powerful affirmation to my fertility. Thank you.

Ga could use some of that snow! We're nigh on summer here

Lily- I got my amazing keychain today, and it made me tear up

So, I did not go to the hypno-fertility appointment- I was wrong, it is NEXT Thursday!!! I'll tell you all about it next week...

I don't get +OPK's, so I am afraid I am not Oing... I read online that some women O and never have +OPK's, so if I am not pg by the time I get some extra money in, I am going to get an OvWatch and be sure...

How is everyone doing tonight? I'm okay, a bit nervous about this cycle, but good overall

wow.. hugs all around..

sarah.. how funny about the snowblower... I'm just glad we arent responsible for the snow around here.. tho we do help out anyway

I have had a terrible day... ds is so cranky... my little bro came home early from school cause he has what ds had a couple days ago.. and puked on the carpet 3 times!... I got lilys keychain today... I showed ds it.. and he somehow ran off with it... then I couldnt find it... it took me literally 3 hours of searching and I found it only 10 mins ago.... I am so drained.. and my little bro will probably have to stay home tomorrow... :...
I'm gonna go to bed I think... at least for awhile (btw lily.. I cried when I got it.. thank you.. it is beautiful!!!)

Sorry Crystal for the lousy day. Sounds like an exhausting one!

Oceanmommy - if you can do a half marathon with MIL around, I'll be impressed!

Leslie - are you out there? You've been on my mind.

Booja's Mom - I loved the ice cream thing too! That is one of my very favorite things in the world. And I haven't read anything about hypnosis and fertility, but I'm intrigued. I'll look forward to hearing Val's experience next week.

I think I remember hearing that is a good sign. Fingers officially crossed now!

I also had to laugh at this, but I know it isn't any fun! I'm in Minnesota and we are getting our 2nd storm of 12+ inches in a week. I picked up ds early, though, and we were home safely by 3 pm. I don't think I'm even trying to get in to the office tomorrow... But it is March and so it should be gone fairly quickly, and then we can move on to spring!

Why would that be a good sign? You've got me curious now!

Sarah - I agree that the crosshairs are close. I think it's off by a day, but I'll take it. There was plenty of bding going on around there.

So when I get my 21 day progesterone tomorrow, I should know by Monday or Tuesday the result. What's a good number? Does anybody know?
post #28 of 576
Christy here's a like with some hormone levels/test days that I found when I was looking for day 3 bloodwork, there's progesterone levels near the end link.

I've also heard it was common to have creamy cm during pregnancy :
post #29 of 576
I think creamy CM is sometimes a sign of very early pg. I don't know what the hormonal change would be that triggers it, but I remember hearing that.

No idea on the cd 21 progesterone levels, but let us know when you do, OK? I will be doing it next cycle.
post #30 of 576
ChristyM26 - I had my test done last week and got a 11.5 which my doc said was good. Not excellent but ok. She said that anything above 10 was good and that only levels below ten would warrant some forms of medication specific to progesterone imbalance.

I am not sure if the creamy CM is a definite sign to anything but I had a ton of it the first trimester when I was pg with DD. :

Sarah - It's to funny about your snow. I just got off the phone with my mom who is also in Ontario and she was complaining about having to shovel her driveway twice today. I do have to say as sadistic as it sounds I miss it. I now live in the west coast and they delayed school today because we for 1" and a half ..... Seriously what is that about. Hang in there spring will come soon.

Valarie - keep me posted on what you find out with the hypnotist. I think I am also going for it.

Crystal - I hope you feel better. I know how rough it is when little ones get sick. All 3 of us just got over the flu. lots of
post #31 of 576
booja's mom please don't say you miss it, I'd trade with you in a second. I have family in Vancouver and when I visit them in the winter and things are still blooming I'm insanely jealous. You can come shovel for us for a while, you won't miss it too much after that. Today's lovely addition: Freezing rain YAY!

Christy temps are looking good! Good luck with your progesterone test I hope it comes back with good numbers.

Ocean, Lily, Ity and Tenk I'm thinking about you girls this morning, I hope you're well

I'm off to chip my car out of the block of ice that it's encased in. SO FUN :

I'm still here, lurking and reading. AF this time around was AWFUL. Heaviest and crampiest AF ever, and I'm blaming the Clomid for this. In fact, I'm still crampy, and its CD3. :

No personals from me now, sorry, maybe more later. I think we're taking this month off.
post #35 of 576
Just a quick update--you all can see my chart anyway, but... I think I'm out for this cycle. Temps just kept staying down. Neg preg test. Not feeling preg. I've got to stay occupied with other things though. Not feeling that crushing feeling. I think I have some grief, but I'm not sure where it is. And I'm not sure what the plan for this next cycle is. At least this last cycle I totally picked out my carseat! It's ridiculous...
post #36 of 576
Hi there, Teneal. Good to hear from you...

Hey, Ity. Glad you're still around and sorry that af was such a witch. I bet that feels like adding insult to injury.

We're taking a snow day and going sledding!

to you. I had been watching your chart but I've got to say I have no idea what to make of it! I guess that one day of fever makes it look different enough that it is hard to interpret the whole thing. My fingers are still crossed that there is a surprise, but I'm also glad you're feeling sad but not crushed.

You are so not ridiculous about the carseat. Just hopeful.
post #38 of 576
Elk - it's definatly adding insult to injury. Oh, and to add a little salt to the wound, my pregnant friend is having a 37-week c-section because her Dr told her the baby would be 10lbs if she went to term.: : (And her baby shower is in 2 weeks and I have to figure out how to be all shiny/happy by then. )
post #39 of 576
Hey all... my temps are weird this month- I am thinking this month will be anovulatory... I am not pleased!!!

I'm still crossing my fingers for O though. In the meantime, I'm spending a lot of time studying (I'm on the verge of failing a few classes, so now is the time to study!!)

What is everyone else doing to distract themselves?
