post #81 of 102
Please move me to Waiting to Know. Had IUI #4 yesterday, and due to donor sperm being subpar, am doing IUI#4a this morning using a different donor.

Of course, if I do get pg this cycle, I won't know which donor did the trick, lol. Don't much care at this point, as long as I has me a baby.

I do not think I can wait 10 days! I will wait until AF is supposed to come and then i'm testing. That's at least 10 days. EEEK! It will help that we are going on holiday for a week. Then i'm home 3 days and then we have a 3 week buisness trip to 3 different countries. So i would like to know in those 3 days before we go. A bit nervous b/c many people get sick in the countries we're heading to and if i'm prego won't be able to take medicine.

anyhoo...so we've been BDing 7x in the past week and a half. Then i read on the internet that even if you do everything "right" you still only have a 25-30% chance of conceiving. I am working on surrendering this to God but its hard! We move back to the USA in June 08 and I REALLY want to have another baby before we move back, but not TOO close to the move back date. so i feel this is our last chance for a few months.

If i do get preg. then its wierd that the baby could have the same bday as my DS born in april. i don't like that but oh well!

Girlie1125... Wow! What a coincidence! I was just having a discussion on a different forum about the possibilty of a woman having two eggs fertilized by two different sperm sources. Most took awhile to understand the concept! But, us women that are obsessed with our fertility already know about almost any and every thing that can happen during ovulation! LOL
I wish you all the best and hope all of your dreams of a healthy baby come true!

Mkmama... Don't test early, don't test early, don't test early.... Make that your new mantra.
Testing early just makes you emotional!!! Look how many of us get negatives all the way up to 14dpo... That is just too much extra stress.
One trick I learned to keep from testing early, don't buy any tests. If you have some, ask a friend to hold them for you until the day before AF is due. It should help keep you from testing.
I hope you have fun on your trips and are able to avoid illness! I've never left the continent of North America, it must be great to see alot of different places.

AAM... I seem to be feeling alot better today. I don't know if it is because the weather has cleared up or because I took that Co Q-10 the other day. I hope it's the weather. Anyway, I should get off the computer, off my bottom and on to my projects!

Mommies in May.... Mommies in May....
No fears of baby's first cold. No wrapping the newborn in ten layers of clothes, so you can't even see that cute little nose. Baby's feet are free to wriggle and fingers are free to grasp a bright yellow dandelion. Woops! A butterfly just landed on your babys head!!! Grab the camera!!!!!!!

Think SPRING!!!!!!!!!!

dont remind me!! i want a spring baby so badly. ive been wanting onr for soooooo long. dhamd i waited on ttc so i could start when the baby would be born in spring head: what was i thinking :
post #85 of 102
While I'd be happy with a baby born in any month, if I had to pick one month it'd be May. May is my favorite month of the whole year. Guess that means we better work extra hard this month.

Also not picky of the birthdate, just want another babe...

So, who has used tests from saveontest.com? I have now used 18 of my 20 OPK, and NONE have been +... I am on CD 14, should have O'ed by now, yet none have been pos... I didn't chart all the negs on FF.com, it got too depressing... And here I was excited this month b/c I felt I had a little more 'control' over my fertility.. It has again shown me that I have NO control over ANYTHING!!!:

I have used them for years. I would estimate that I have used 100 of their OPKs over 18 or so cycles and they have worked for me every time. Their HPTs are good too although the midstream ones are by far the easiest to read.

Are you using the OPK in the afternoon?

Yes, after noon time was recommended somewhere. I started POAS on CD#7, and today is CD#14... I missed 2 days b/c I was fed up with the tests and I was working those days... I was testing twice a day, the second would have been late in the evening, before bed usually.

I'm back, unfortunately

Could I be added to waiting to O?

I was a member of the June BFPs, but unfortunately, I had a D&C yesterday. I went in for a 9w u/s, and we found out we were having identical twins, but that they were only 7w along, and no h/b. I went back for a 10w u/s, and the babies showed no progress. Since my body wasn't going to m/c on it's own, we had a D&C yesterday.

As soon as the doctor gives us the go-ahead, we're getting right back on the TTC bandwagon. We had a lot of questions as to whether or not we were ready to be parents, ready to make those sacrifices, etc, but the loss of our boys showed us we'd do anything to be parents. Hopefully, my body will recover quickly and we'll be pg again before we know it!

Hello everyone,

Wishful thinking to us all.

Stevi: I'm sorry for my misunderstanding. How you doing too?

: for everyone.

Later,

post #92 of 102
CounterGOPI... Awwwww.... We will all get our babies! We have to! Because I say so!!!!!

Nicole... Well then, yes, you had better get down to the "nitty gritty" and get between those sheets! LOL

SweetIrishCT... (Shhh, I have more silliness for June, just in case...)
As for your "O"... Did you or have you gotten the Eggwhite CM?? When I was using OPKs, I was combining them with my CM to figure out my "O" date. I'm going to use some OPKs again this cycle, but I'm using Dollar Tree tests. So, I am no help at all on your question, sorry.

MamaMerle... Your doing a great job as Threadkeeper!

Baby Makes 4... Hiya! Hope you're having a reproductive day!

Joshs Girl... I'm sooo sorry, but I am glad that you and your DH are able to look forward and keep trying. I hope you get pregnant on your very next try and that everything goes perfectly.

Folaboye... It's okay, I would say 99% of the "not feeling well" posts on this forum would be caused by AF... So, an understandable mistake.
Anyway, it lasted about 2 days, I am sooooo much better now. So, hopefully it was from the wet weather.

AAM... My re-fi is pre-approved as long as my appraisal comes in at the right amount, so things are looking up around here. I still have alot of work to do on the house, but the worst things are either fixed or "camoflaged", so the appraisal should go well.
My cycle seems to be going along normally, so, I'm still planning to inseminate Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday.

May birthdays.... If our babies birthdays are in May, they can have the parties almost anywhere! At a park, at an amusement park, at home, at Chuck E Cheese, in the backyard... It will be great to have so many choices.
Also, when baby is a kid, May means that they are still in school and can share the birthday celebrations with friends too!
Oh, I forgot about the best thing about May Babies.... Not being pregnant during the hottest months of the year! (At least not being in the second or third trimester)
Where I live, that can be as hot as 120 degrees!!!!! LOL

(I'll think of some more May stuff for next time)

post #95 of 102
I'd like to be added to the Waiting to Know

Since I'm new I'll put in a quick intro. My name is Rochelle, I'm 20. I've been married since May and TTC since around then. This month we got really busy around when I was about to O and so only BD once (the day before I O'd), so I wasn't really thinking about testing at all this month but after a week and a half of headaches and on and off nausea (and being really hungry as soon as that goes away)...so I went and bought a $ test today. I drink way too much to be able to hold my pee for any length so I just took one earlier...BFN. I'm 4 days late but have cycles that range between 30 and 40 days in the past 5 months so who knows. Going a bit crazy, but aren't we all.

DesiLou... I'm sooooo sorry...... Sounds like another Chemical Pregnancy. Not much comfort right now, but at least you know you're Ovulating and your DHs sperm is healthy. (That's how I try to look at it) Hugs...

MamaMerle... You are doing such a good job... I hope someone gives you a break.

SimplyRochelle... Hello! Get another test and take it first thing in the morning... Good luck!!

Gr8tfulMomma... I hope your day so far is "peachy"!

AAM... Nothing new, just popped in for the heck of it.
