Welcome to the new thread! I'm threadkeeper this month--let me know if there are any updates for this month. Happy Fall...

AFM, I'm 9 DPO. I didn't temp this morning because my sleep was too erratic and I moved around a lot before I remembered. But I did have a crazy (and very graphic) dream about implantation spotting last night. Frankly, it was gross. But I was so sure I was pregnant in the dream--it was a nice feeling. Trying not to get carried away pondering the possible meanings, as I've dreamt I was pregnant before when I wasn't.

Subbing... 11 DPO and trying to resist POAS until day 14. Day 10 was negative . I have no signs at all though so I think it's unlikely.

My naturopath wants me to give up my morning lattes... the horror! She says that I can have green tea so I guess I'll have to make the switch, although I think I'll wait until I get a BFP. Is that bad?

Finally pregnant with #1 and #2! Due September 9th, 2014

Laggie, we're on similar schedules! I swore I wouldn't test till 12 or 14 DPO. I caved today at 10DPO, but of course it was negative. So I'm just going to wait till my period's due. I'm not super hopeful this month--I'm kinda counting it as our first real month TTC since it's the first I've charted and the first where i know for a fact we timed it right.

I've cut back on coffee but haven't managed to give up on it.

so this is the month for us to get a SA, i'm nervous to how it will effect him. i have also decided to go forward to a IUI, maybe not this month, it is going to make my beloved sad, he is really a romantic about making babies.
i actually asked the RE if i could just get his sample for the SA and go do the IUI without telling him, but they said that was a legal no no. i know he is ok with it on the black and white reality of it all, but the emotional side is taking a hit, babies are "supposed" to come from lovemaking and a couples bed, right?

any tips for easing your parter thru a SA or a IUI for that matter?

DH had no issues with the SA - he understood that he was just as much a vital part of achieving pregnancy as I was, and thus him getting tested was just as vital as me getting tested was - so he cheerfully went and generated and dropped off his sample.

I've no suggestion as far as the IUI goes - are you allowed to have sex afterwards? If so, I would be sure to have a very romantic evening after the IUI - if there is success, well, it could go either way, yes?

did your DH "create the sample" home or in the office? we are so close that we can do it at home if he wants.
so im wondering what is easier on him?
part of me thinks home is better, but maybe it is best for me to have nothing to do with it, just let him go do it on his own, not having to deal with me as a added thing?

as for the post iui evening, i would make sure that that night and the next few days were really nice for us, do everything special for that very reason. the RE nurse recomended it as well

He had to do it in the office, as we weren't close enough to insure the sample would make it there okay.
I think he needs to figure out where it would be easier - having your help might make it easier, or doing it on his own might be easier.

Hi Adorkable--I'm sympathetic to your beloved's concerns and I think that's very laudable/romantic of him! At the same time, are you happy to be trying the next step? I really like Kiya's suggestion of making that night really romantic...At any rate, good luck and best wishes.

Yeah, my dh didn't really have an issue with doing a s/a either. I guess it depends on the person. Adorkable- is this the first time you guys are doing a s/a? Good luck with that. We were super surprised by our results- but glad we at least knew what was happening. It is an important step.

As for the babies supposed to be born through making love thing- I know what you mean. But really, if you just do it however you have to then the whole pregnancy and baby experience can be lovely and romantic, y'know? So you don't have to sacrifice that part.

thanks folks, i talked to my Beloved lastnight about hte SA thing and he seemed pretty ok with it, he is going to bring it home and do it, seems less strange to him.
as for the romance, im ok with it all, i know that if we didnt have a lot of love and romance we would never consider putting ourselfs thru such a hassle!!!

and yeah this is the first SA, im pretty calm since he has gotten me preggo before (5 years ago in the early days of our dating) i figure he still can now, but at the same time i am a bit worried since everything on my end seems to be working so well. i worry that he will take it bad if it is him, i think i will get the results alone and then if they point to him at all, figure out in my own way how he should hear that. it may be best from the doc, and i could take him in, but at least i would already know so i could be ready to support him having already gone thru my own reaction.

oh btw my Beloved is taking the whole SA thing like a big boy and i picked up the stuff at the lab for him, now we just have to figure out a day that he can do it , since they only take samples in at the lab M-Th 0830-1100 and he works every day starting way before that!!
it my take a little while to figure out how to get him a few hours off one morning so he can do his thing. Chances are we may not find out anything before this cycles O, so we are still in the dark.

side note, if i O in time and we caught it, i would be due on the 4th of July, just thought that was fun

Hi there! Can I be added? My chart is in my homepage. We have been trying since 08/09. I just turned 31 last week. Welcome to the best decade, right?

Right now I am on cd19, hoping that I O'd cd17 or 18. I geared up to O cd13 or so, but then Mom and her husband came into town and I got a little stressed. I can't believe I would be so sensitive to stress! But, it's also only my 2nd cycle since coming off about 6 years on the pill. I've been on it for about 15 years with only 6 month or so breaks on occasion. Each time I came off I've had irregular periods...so who know what to expect?

Taylah, how long ago what your positive OPK and o pain? Are you normally really regular?

SA Update:

My Beloved was a great sport and managed to give it his all between a early army brigade run and a long days work.

well the numbers came back pretty good,
the only things that came up were Vigor was 2+ and they wanted 3+-4+
and viability was 55% (75-100 is what they want) but she mentioned that their lab seems to always test low on that one thing so not to worry

well seems that is not the problem, and that is great news

now what the the hell is!!


so in the moving forward note, i have decided that December can be our IUI, that will be our 2 year mark of this journey and if my cycle stays on target, my due date would be my birthday! meanwhile i will O this weekend so i'm crossing everything but my legs!
