You've been peeing on things?
That can't be much fun for Turtle to have to clean up?

LaH and it wasn't lube or anything? Frustrating! I thought I was sensitive to latex in college for a while (turns out I really was more sensitive to insensitive guys) and was dropping $$$ on the polyurethane condoms for years. Hope you are finding a good solution...

frog how many times a day are you POS'ing?!! :

Nope... we never really use lube.


The condoms are working for now. Sucks to have to run out and buy them but eventually we will just replace the silicone friend with one made of something else and hopefully that will be the end of that

It deals with ultrasound monitoring, HCG trigger shots, IUI with fresh sperm, etc. We're dying for TONS of wisdom on this.

thanks!

Just popping in to say hi--I'm not sure I have any wisdom that hasn't already been shared... but have you all been doing Clomid with no u/s monitoring so far? The HCG is supposed to narrow down the window for ovulation--if you have mature follicles (over something like 18-19 mm, I think), they could be released in the next couple of days, where the Ovidrel or HCG is supposed to make them pop within a narrower window (my clinic does insems 24 hours later, or at 12 and 36 hours).

I think the possibility of IUI with fresh is a *great* one, and would be all over it if I were you two! I do think it's the freezing that's supposed to make them live shorter, so that should increase the odds. Best of luck--that's great to hear about your OB working with you so helpfully!

Twice--once around 10 a.m. and again around dinnertime. It's part of our new strategy. I seem to ovulate pretty quickly after getting the first positive so we want to be sure we catch that positive.

I'm either 7, 8, or 9 DPO now and resisting the temptation to test. It's driving me crazy that I don't know which day O was. Fertility Friend kept changing it's mind based on my temps and what method of ovulation detection it's using - so, I over rode it and chose my own day. I have a lack of symptoms this time around, even less breast soreness than normal, so I just don't know what to think. I'm hoping I'm one of those lucky ones who is pregnant with no symptoms at all.
The TWW is SOOOOOOOOO LOOOOOOONG!!!

post #133 of 598
to you both Hulahoop and LaH.

I am now in possession of some Vitex. Although I got pregnant really easily last time, anything that will up my chances of success when we TTC this time around is okay in my books.
post #134 of 598
my vitex is on the way as i write! report back after you've tried it for awhile, if yo're up for it!
post #135 of 598

Vitex gave me the strongest positive I've ever gotten on an OPK. I'm definitely pro-vitex!

Not yet, AFAIK. Should we start one?

Hiya Simcon,

Good to "see" you! Thanks for this clarification. It really makes me see, along with what Jen posted earlier, how helpful the shot can be. And yes, I think IUI with fresh should be a great addition to our repertoire!

Hope you're enjoying some snowy fun of late!

be well,
megin
