allisonrose: I did the cream topicaly briefly a very long time ago - don't remember much about it - but then more recently I had an RE have me do it the way my current dr. wants me to. I just remember getting awfully bored with the whole process. You had to plan whether you were going to bd before bed or not, because after you stick that stuff in - the spontinaety and fun just dies.
But she was only talking about me doing it for like 5 days in the cycle. The RE had me doing it the entire cycle.
Oceanmommy: That's a great question. I'm going to call the office today and see if I can get some info. And yeah isn't it funny how no one really questions your parenting skills when you just have your own kids? I mean I guess it's a good thing, because we don't want to purposely put kids in homes where they will be sleeping on floors - but why isn't co-sleeping accepted as a viable option for adoptees? I would think they'd be pushing for that - because doesn't it help w/ the bonding process between parent and child?
Booja's mom: sorry to hear that the drugs are kicking your butt. I hope you start to feel better soon!!
I don't mind answering your question if you don't mind reading the long answer: My hubby does stand up to her. Before I came along she'd put him in this place of her savior (oh and she talked to him in a baby voice which she doesn't anymore, Thank God!!). She always expected him to be there for her to save her from whatever situation she puts herself in. It's actually very messed up. The real trick was that we moved halfway across the valley from her and she hates to drive the freeways.
so it takes over an hour on surfaces streets and you're driving through some interesting neighborhoods while you do it. He has always put me first, and since she likes to put him in situations where he has to choose, it works out well for me.
: Of course up until recently I always got blamed for putting him into those situations. Except with this most recent ER visit (btw, after having major surgery last year and being told she could never
smoke again, she started smoking again about a month ago and shock of all shocks landed herself back in the hospital within 3 weeks).
: And ER visits and my mil are a whole other story. At any rate, it caused this whole fight w/ dh where he claimed I didn't have any sympathy for his mother when she almost died last year (yeah I really didn't - she created the situation herself - smoke since the age of 13 and well that's what you get). And I finally just let him have it - that she's been mean and nasty to me from day one (especially
after the first miscarriage, she doesn't know about this more recent one) - but in that subversive way that we women can be - where men don't get the double meanings- and then she's overly-vocally supportive of me in public. makes me want to yak. So now that he understands where all of this hostility is REALLY coming from - the agreement is that I don't have to deal w/ her and he's so mad at her for smoking again (and basically signing her death warrant) - he hasn't talked to her in over a month and yeah, that means he didn't even call her for mother's day and I could care less!!
We also agreed that she can't be alone w/ our kids (heck she can't even be alone w/ our dogs) due to the smoking and other moral issues I have with her - and that's that. Booja, If your mil is really awful - I'm on a yahoo support group that you might like to join. PM for the info if you're interested.
That's about all that I have to say, everyone. Still waiting for test results, etc. I wasn't very good at taking my meds this cycle. I'm feeling kind of blah this morning. I have an awful tummy ache - but I'm hungry. Explain that. LOL. Makes a girl think she might be looking at a bfp in a couple of days and a
in a couple of months. Dh and I have the day off together. Yay!! I o'd around cd17 and I'm on cd26 - so we'll see if my 11 day lp curse hits or what's going to happen. My avg cycle length is supposedly 33 days. Supposedly.
Have a terrific day, ladies!!
