Thanks poetgirl. I think you're right about the riding. Just walks for now. I do think I got great results from the Clomid. It actually makes me feel ok about what I went through while taking it. I was a raving lunatic - so irritable and depressed - it was awful. After the ultrasound, I decided the few days of nuttyness was worth it. Now I just have to try to relax until Nov. 7 when I go for the blood test.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you, Lola! Sounds like this may be a very good month for you!

Thank you all for your positiveness (is that a word???) I am going to get my blood drawn tomorrow at lunch, and hopefully hear something by Tuesday morning. I took another HPT this afternoon, a cheapie one, which came back BFN. But, I am holding out hope that the Clearblue is a better and more accurate test, which is the one that gave me the BFP. Anyhoo....I'll let you all know when I hear something definite.....:

Afternoon pee is not accurate!! gotta be FMU when its this early. Keep us posted!


AAM I am pretty sure I o'd today. Had a lot of pain on my right side and lower abdomen. I was kinda surprised cause I hadn't had that pain since my surgery "fixed" everything. (sorry if this is tmi) but does anyone else have pain while bding during O time?? It freakin hurts!! Have a repeat u/s in the am-hoping that it just confirms that I did O!!

Is there anything that makes it better? This might sound horrible but I don't tell DH that it hurts or else he would refuse to "participate". So I just suck it up and don't say anything. It hurts bad enough that I want to cry sometimes... but gotta get the spermies up there somehow!! IUI isn't an option yet.. gotta talk DH into it!

For me, I think it hurts because my cervix is lower during that time of the month. I tell DH that it's hurting and he tries to be gentile, but still it brings me to tears sometimes as well. If he is behind me, it doesn't hurt as much.

It hurts me too. You're definitely not alone. We did IUI on Thursday and Friday and then on Saturday wanted to have intercourse to give ourselves an extra chance. It hurt more than usual, probably because of the drugs, and we had to do it with me on my side and DH behind me.

It hurts twice as bad that way... I think it isnt my cervix that really hurts but my ovaries are usually enlarged and very tender. oh well, @ least when we tell our future children that we went thru hell and back for them.. we can really mean it!!!


aam- u/s today showed that my "cyst" on the right side was much smaller (that was the first thing the u/s tech said!) it was 29mm, today it was 13 mm... it also looks like there was a smaller follicle right beside it, kinda made it look like 1 big follie-but you could see a very definite line in between them, so I might have released 2 eggs! I can handle 2 babies, anything more than that and I am gonna have to get a therapist!! lol


lola keeping my fingers crossed for you! I hope we get lots of bfp this month!!



found this saying on myspace-it is so true it made me cry!

"It's so hard to wait around for something you know might now happen. But its even harder to give up, especially when its EVERYTHING you ever wanted."

Crystal-mommy-- I love the saying, I might have to add to my list of sayings I have been gathering while I am on this journey. I was totally feeling this last night. I asked DH what will happen to us if we can never have our child. That moment in time I was so scared that this can be real and he looked at me in horror and just went back to sleep. We are so scared and upset that this can be a reality. I told him we will never know our product of our love and never have a soul come from us. This is a horrible feeling. SO this saying is very perfect for me.
Great it was ovulation for you and not any other unusual problems. Hey 2 eggs sounds nice, better chances and maybe twins

Lola88--any news? I hope this is it for you.

AFM : I am so excited, nervous and anxious for our RE visit this week.


hello to eveyone else here

updated to here

:

Is being super cold a pregnancy sign? My hands and feet and nose are like ice and I'm wearing a shirt and a sweater and still shivering.

gah. the tww is almost over.

Hey... can someone please take over this thread for November??? Pretty please? I've done it three months running and I'd like to just post for a while! It's not too hard to take care of, I've updated at most twice a week.

12 DPO here and afraid to test. I'm on progesterone supplements and I know the symptoms of pregnancy are the same for the supplement. I think I will test tomorrow.............maybe. The good news is that I was right! I haven't had any spotting since 7DPO (like I did the past three cycles). Although my progesterone levels were tested and I was found to be within the normal range..........the progesterone supplements help my luteal phase. I think it's interesting since the previous doc I saw told me over and over that taking the supplements won't help me because my levels were normal. Whatever doc!

so, um.
I had a positive home test this morning

I don't know what to think. I am going in for a beta tomorrow. Dh is so excited, but I just can't get my hopes up or believe it's real yet.

This is HUGE our dear Songbird!
Holy Kripes! I can totally see how after all this time, you need the real #s to really take it in (I'd be the same way). I hope your beta is rockin tomorrow. You deserve this so much! Hoping and Praying over here that all is well and your TTC journey is moving on. : For now, take refuge in the fact that Something is going on and it is possible for you to be pregnant.
Wishing you all the Best

I've been feeling the nausea, cramping, fatigue, STARVING, but no soreness in bbs or any spotting at all. Should I get my blood test tomorrow, or wait til AF is actually due, which would be Tuesday? I want to be happy, just so many concerns at the moment...HELP!!!
: I am hoping that this is it for you!!! YAY!!!

I'm new here, but have been reading posts for a while now. DH and I have been ttc for 15 months now and are currently doing our first IUI cycle with a diagnosis of unexplained infertility. Our RE says my DH has "he-man" sperm which, of course, makes me feel as though there must be something wrong with me since he could pretty much populate the earth based on his numbers.

Anyway, this is the first month of treatment for us. I was on 100mg Clomid and an Ovidrel trigger shot. I had an ultrasound on day 12 which showed 6 follicles of decent size. I'm hoping the amount of follicles combined with DH's he-man sperm gives us good results! I had the IUIs on Thursday and Friday and am now in the 2ww. I am not enjoying the waiting at all and I'm only a couple days in! How do you stay sane during the 2ww?

Do you do anything differently after your IUIs in terms of exercise, etc? I have a horse and ride 5 - 6 days/week generally but am rethinking that right now even though the nurse at the RE's office said it was ok. I got on today and just walked. When I tried to do anything more than a walk, my lower abdomen started hurting so I decided to abandon the ride.
Welcome! During ART, I really take a break during the 2ww. I am sure that it would probably be ok, but I am one to look back with regret and thinking "If I only didn't get on that treadmill."

::: I understand not wanting to get your hopes up, but I am so excited for you!!! Best of luck!

How is everyone doing today? I got a "peak" reading on my monitor today. DH has a SA on Saturday and our first appointment with the RE for TTC #2 is next Wednesday!

wow, you're all so wonderful. :

I'm not ready to be a "graduate" yet... when you've been around as long as we have, you've seen too many chemicals and blighted ovums (and the occasional ectopic) to get too excited. But this is the furthest I've ever gotten, and I'm celebrating that! I'll take another home test tomorrow and get the beta, and I'll update you when they let me know in the afternoon.

Speaking of betas... Lola??? Where are you?
