Angi, we are all there with you too, in spirit! How exciting mama!
poetgirl, don't give up hope! I'm pulling for you guys. Hang in there.
blueyezz4, they told us to abstain for 3-4 days before the IUI. (we have m/f, so this is to increase DH's sperm count, I can't remember if that is what you are dealing with too?). Since it isn't always easy for me to predict ovulations (it's been CD13, 14 and 15 before), we've had between 2-5 days of abstinence. This cycle we had 5 days, and DH gave his best sample yet (>50 million!).
snowbell, thanks for saying that. I don't always agree with DH, and I hadn't really figured out how I feel about it (the "infertile" label, the privacy), so it was good to hear your perspective. I guess it's maybe easier for me to accept the label, because I know that it isn't really "my fault" (I know it's no one's fault), because we have m/f. Does that make sense? It's maybe a false bravado for me, I can say I'm infertile and it doesn't hurt me because I'm actually not really infertile, but I'm part of a sub-fertile couple...
kiki, what an awesome beta! congrats!
I'm 7dpo now, so officially obsessing now about implantation signs. I have gotten phantom "implantation dips" on my chart before, and phantom "implantation cramping" so I know this is a futile effort to look for these signs... doesn't stop me! This is the part of the 2ww where I become insane though, super emotional and labile, cranky, etc. I hate waiting!
Other 2ww-ers, DLT, Jelly_Bean, Poet, Cori, who else?
How are you guys coping lately? I'm going to see the new batman movie tonight, and then I'm going to try to clean the house really well this weekend. What are you doing? (anyone have book recommendations?)
