Congrats Jen!!!! That is awesome news. Remind me of how old you are.
Big Hugs Momma and lots of sticky baby vibes.

I'm 42. Thanks for all the congrats. I'm starting to feel that pregnant mama sleepiness, and a bit of nausea, although it could be the cold and traveling, too.

Yay for 42 that is awesome!!! Keeping you in my thoughts and Prayers for a H&H 9 months

Oh and you have to post and tell us what you did different this past cycle. (If anything)
post #45 of 698
Hi Jen,
I am glad you are feeling some symptoms, that's a great sign!
So exciting!

AFM, CD 8. Was still spotting yesterday and with the 2 days of spotting preceding AF, that makes 9 days altogether of bleeding. So very odd for me.
Anyway, DH and I started the BD-fest anyway, will have to slow it down to very other day now to conserve those swimmers. Will likely O on the weekend unless the m/c pushes that back too.

I just realized I can't book a place in Florida for next February though which is too bad. Unless I want to take a few months off TTC (or unless I get PG this cycle). It's too bad becasue everything will be booked if I wait much longer.

AF came on Saturday and I was sad again even though I am trying to let go of TTC. DH saw this and said why don't we go to a Dr? At least they can test us and tell us what is possible. So even though I had been certain that we wouldn't do anything but see what happens we now have an appointment with an RE in May.

I have been working on our financial planning and so many of the life goal planning materials ask some version of the 'you have one day left to live what do you wish you would have done differently?' question. And not having another babe is the first thing that comes to mind. So I don't know what will happen but I am not gone from TTC yet.

Veganmama can you book it now and just cancel if pregnancy finds you after this cycle?
Joyluc That is great that your DH wanted to see a doctor. : for your appt. in May.

I am cd 10 and chart says I am in my fertile phase. So the BDing fest begins. I started taking Maca this cycle. I read in the TTC Maca thread and it sounds like something that will help I am giving it to DH too as it increases sperm motility. Go swimmers GO!!

Laurie, we are cycle buddies this month - I am CD 10 too.

Good news here (for a change). I had a repeat HSG and my only fallopian tube is now open! I started clomid and metformin this month so we shall see what happens in the next couple of months.........

Sending everyone good : baby making vibes!
post #49 of 698
Congrats Jen! I hope you continue to feel awful because that means the hormones are kicking away.

Joyluc, excellent that DH is on board and wants to figure it out with you. Good luck with the doctor and I hope it's an easy solution.

Good baby vibes for everyone! It would be fun if it kicked in for all of us.

I am CD 9, so I am right with you Laurie and Vicki. That is great news about your tube!
Joyluc, I'm so glad your DH is on board. Just be forewarned that the docs probably will be all doom and gloom even if everything looks fine. That is my experience anyway. I had good antral follicle count (13 on CD 9) meaning only slightly diminished ovarain reserve, tubes were clear and open. And they were still "move on to injectibles plus IUI right away" after they backed down from "IVF right away". In my experience chinese doctors are much more positive!
I'm not saying this to discourage you from going to the doc, I just don't want you to feel like you've been sucker punched if they are like my fertility clinic. BTW, I conceived 4 days after that lovely appointment. Sure it was a blighted ovum but they wouldn't have been able to prevent that either!

Hi Juls!

Laurie, you are right, I should go ahead and book it and just pay the cancellation fee if I happen to be 8 or 9 months PG on the date.
post #51 of 698
Hi. Just wanted to send some good baby making vibes, morning sickness and sticky vibes and let everyone know that I am thinking of them while I silently read your journeys Me, I'm just at the edge of my seat and the end of a tww sitting here with a sicky feeling but postponing testing.
post #52 of 698
:, Sara!

Me, I'm in the maddeningly early part of the tww (7DPO) where the days till "test date" stretch on seemingly infinitely in the future and nothing meaningful can be discerned from the temp pattern so far. :

I'm more than usually obsessing about it, because I booked tickets to go to San Diego at the end of April for my FET, and I would like nothing better than to have to cancel them.
post #53 of 698
Fingers crossed for Sara and Juneau and any other 2WWers!

I am CD 10, gearing up to O!
post #54 of 698
I got a call today from my RE's office that my beta number didn't double (the lab I went to on Saturday didn't bother to send the info to them, they had to call and get it from them). They want me to get another blood draw done, but I'm going to be traveling tomorrow, so Friday is probably the earliest I can do it (our flight arrives at 3:40 in Seattle and it's a pretty long drive to our place, especially in traffic). I sure hope everything's OK. Maybe the lab just didn't do it right? With my last pregnancy, my second HCG reading was more than double the first beta reading. I am a bit crampy, so I worrry a bit, but I know worrying won't help anything. I just hope it's a bad lab or a fluke.

Best wishes, Juneau, in the 2ww, and hope you have a good o, veganmama!
post #55 of 698
Oh, Pookie, how worriesome. I hope you can relax and enjoy your trip home.
post #56 of 698
Jen, I have my fingers crossed for your next HCG. Try not to worry (I know that is SO much easier said than done). There is a wide range as to what is OK. Also sometimes betas look bad if there is an early twin loss. And IUI does produce more twin PGs right?
When would you get your results from Friday's beta?

Gosh, I hope everything is OK. Sticky bean vibes to you!

Thanks, it's true, the injectibles do produce more twins (I was actually kind of secretly hoping for twins). They aren't having me get another blood draw until Saturday, but I'd get my results that day. The RE's office does their own blood work, so they are quick.
post #58 of 698
OK, Jen, we'll all be on pins and needles with you...

SunRise, how are you?

AFM, beautiful temp spike today but it's because I'm sick. Hoping to feel better soon and still hoping for good news in a few days... :
post #59 of 698
CD1 for me today. At least my cycle length gained two days (lost 5 days the previous cycle!)
post #60 of 698
Oh Jen, I read somewhere that 1 in 8 conceptions is actually a twin PG. I am sure those stats are even higher with IUI. We all have our fingers crossed for you and our positive thoughts for your bean.

Aw Sara, I'm sorry. I'm glad your cycle lenghtened back out though. I had a 10 day LP last cycle after Oing late after the m/c and it really freaked me out as I am usually 14 days like clockwork!

Juneau, I'm sorry you're sicj, that sure is a beautiful spike!

AFM, CD 12, should O today (historically CD 12 is my "luckiest" O day. The only 2 times I've O'd on CD 12 since I'vebeen charting I have gotten PG). Or more likely tomorrow. Could even be Sunday; I suppose the m/c could mess my timmin gup a bit.
