At 11dpo thats actually a very very nice number!

Not exactly high, far from being low... and the progesterone number is great. Funny how they nearly match!

LIS! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY for a boy with a name! i cried a little there. YAY for starting the BSL grad thread. that will be sooo good. or maybe it could be the BSL Love thread or BSL stalking thread, so that all us BSLs feel welcome, grad or not? thoughts?

Lyndzies- those numbers sound great!!!!!!!!! that corresponds with implantation at like 5DPO... which would be perfect, and coincide with your symps!!!

dont let them worry you. your progesterone is fabu too. it's time to get REALLY excited now.

can't wait to hear the results from this week!

YYYM, i think it's a good idea to have the BSL specific thread, too, I was just offering another opinion/viewpoint. I too hope that you dont hit that year mark. it's a doozy. now we can all stalk each other freely. woo hoo!

Certainly explains the BFP digi at 10dpo!

Feeling good, ladies. Feeling good! Oh, what a relief (esp the progesterone).

Looking forward to seeing some good doubling time, though, of course. But less cautious than before.

I will post personals later, I have been lurking all day feeling sad and sorry for myself I am trying to pull out of a funk. DH is having some family issues and has been sort of taking them out on me. I talked to him today though and finally got through to him, but have been weepy all day, and I mean weepy.

I don't have the video yet, but got a few pictures. I'll share

AFM - just got my 11 dpo beta #s back.... HCG = 47 and progesterone = 42!!!

They are concerned because they think the HCG is low... mostly because I am stupid and told them at the appointment that my LMP was 12/24... so they thought I was 16 dpo and not 11 (despite what I told them).

But I think it's GREAT! What do you think??? It's not low, is it??? I'm psyched about the progesterone levels!

Going back in first thing tomorrow to get a repeat beta. I'll be 15dpo (by my count lol)
I would mention at your next appt that you were mistaken and your LMP was actually whatever date 14 days before your O is. It will save you loads of freakedoutedness. You've gotta watch your dates too if you are planning on delivering in the hospital. Many docs seem to like to use the "you are overdue, let's yank that baby out" when you aren't even actually due yet by your dates. Just my two cents sorry. Don't get me started.

Lyndz--Those are awesome numbers! Your doctors sound like they are overly paranoid!

Beloved- You are gorgeous and I love your costume! Can't wait to watch your video! Sorry your DH is taking his family stuff out on you . Hope it gets better soon.

I am doing much better than I was a few hours ago before DH went to work. I had a few good long cries and DH was just being a sweetie. We spent a huge chunk of the morning just cuddling on the couch and being all teary. He just kept telling me that we'll be such awesome parents whenever the time does come and other reassuring little comments. I would be sooo lost without him. All this crap does make me want to be more proactive with our foster-adopt application. We have yet to get our fingerprints and physicals done and have really been just kinda putting it on the backburner while we continue to hope a pregnancy will come along and derail us. I am skipping class tonight due to my worsening cough and sinus headache and instead I am going to the liquor store (which is in Missouri!) for a nice big bottle of wine to curl up with on the couch. I figure, after the week I just had, I totally deserve it.

OK So FF says I am 4 dpo. However my temps are so close to the coverline I'm not sure. What say ye?
I can relax if I have Oed. If I am still waiting, I will surely perish...
BelovedK's Avatar BelovedK 10:07 PM 01-25-2010
Im so sorry SimplyRochelle that af found you I cant remember if I told you before (I have had a pity party day for myself) Just take care of yourself and have an extra piece of chocolate

enigo, I reeaallyy hope you Od, I'm so pulling for you my former cycle bud

Thanks Beloved
Ive had a rough week. Sometimes all this takes its toll. I just want my life back.
fierrbugg's Avatar fierrbugg 12:35 AM 01-26-2010
Hi Ladies!!

Well we are a buzzing - love it.

Kiya: I love your outlook and lotsa sperm comment. There's nothing wrong w/ that.

Rochelle: Hope you have an amazing cycle off.

BelovedK: Gorgeous. That's just all I have to say about the pics. for your bad day.

Lyndzies: Thinking of big, huge, gi-normous #'s for you. How do you feel about twins? j/k.

I know I'm missing a lot of you, and I'm sorry. to you anyway.

Afm - cd4 - waiting for the labs from the Endo to come back. Attempting to be good this cycle even though depending on thyroid u/s results or blood results we may be putting ttc on hold for a bit. So, far I've had nothing by coffee and Coke all day. And chocolate. With all of the no-show af last year, I forgot how much I crave bad stuff for me during af. I was also very weepy the week before and compared to my adrogenous self from most of 2009, I'm counting it all as a blessing. Yay!! There IS a reason my family called me the drama queen of the family. Girl hormones rock.

Hey mamas,

I have a question for your ladies. A question about work.
I am a longtime nanny and postpartum doula. I love the work and am good at it too but its just getting TOO sad while this ttc is taking so long. My husband and I just moved to a new country where I don't yet speak the language so I'm sort off the hook for a while. But soon I will know more of the language and will want to be busier than just walking the dog and learning German... not to mention making money. And I'm trying to figure out my next step:

has anyone been in this situation? do I just push through and love the families and babies anyway... do I let myself find something new? I'm thinking of going to school but not sure for what.... and haven't been since high school, so it feels a little daunting. Are there fields of work where I get to use my knowledge but not be in such direct and intimate contact with families on a daily basis?

of course, would love your thoughts and ideas.

and again, you mamas are such a lovely group!

xoxo
Lapis

BSL Graduate and Stalking Thread HERE!

And I did add Carlyle! So happy for her ! I hope she comes out and posts a tiny bit more now.

Sending lots of to all of you, so our graduate list can get super-duper LONG!



AFM - Thanks for sharing in the excitement over our u/s results. It makes it just a little bit more real now!!!!
sunwillshine's Avatar sunwillshine 01:15 PM 01-26-2010
First things first.... Yay Carlyle!!!

lisko15 - thanks for the BSL stalking thread!!!!!!!!

lapis - I have never been in a similar situation, but want to offer some

fierrbugg - I hope your lab results come back okay....

enigo - Oh, I really hope you O'ed honey!

SimplyRochelle - I'm glad you're feeling a bit better and that DH is being good to you . What a roller coaster!

BelovedK - Your costume is GORGEOUS! You look beautiful. I can't wait to see the video!

YYYM - You are TOTALLY still in the running, girl! ... and I hope DH is less of a grouch today!

AFM - went in for the second beta draw today; should have results (which will show my doubling time) tomorrow afternoon! Eeeeeee!
JustKiya's Avatar JustKiya 01:16 PM 01-26-2010
Carlye!!!!!

I ws a doula, lapis. I worked mainly in the hospital, so I stopped when I started TTC'ing - didn't want to expose myself to cooties that often.

3 years later - I can't even imagine going back to it without a babe of my own.

CARLYLE!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! CONGRATS! Lots and lots of vibes for you girlie!!

Lapis Man girl. That's a tough decision. I think I would have a hard time being around pregnant ladies all the freakin' time. Geez, I could barely make it through a 3 hour baby shower this weekend . Have you thought about going back to school? I don't know if that's even an option for you abroad or not, but thought I'd ask. What about tutoring English or something along those lines- skills that you already have? Just throwing stuff out there. I have no idea what your long-term goals are. Here's a big I hope you are able to figure something out that makes you happy

Lyndzies Can't WAIT to hear the new Beta #'s!!!!! I'm still so over the moon for you!

AFM- Had my baseline U/S today! ALL CLEAR!!!! I am REALLY hoping this cycle is IT! I start taking the double dose of femara CD 3-7 and then go in for a follie scan on Feb 3 to check my follie response Hopefully I'll have a few big ones! Anyway, lots of to Enigo and YYYM, and anyone else in the 2ww! Love you girls!
YummyYumYumMama's Avatar YummyYumYumMama 04:35 PM 01-26-2010
CONGRATS TO CARLYLE!!!!!!!!!! wooooooooooo! can i add her to BFPs here? if so, when's her EDD and how long was she trying for? i am so excited to hear this!

pregnancy fairies, next it is tear's turn as soon as she is ready, y'hear me? let's see two little cousins in the same grade at school!

nanette, so glad everything is all clear! wahoo! sending you the best vibes for this cycle. wheeee!

lapis, is there anything like WIC over there? somewhere where you could help moms in need but not work too closely like a nanny or doula would? i think english tutoring is a good idea too. you could consider taking classes in education if you want to go back to school and have enjoyed nannying. i'm a child psych/education nerd and i have loved early childhood ed, nannying, and teaching general and special ed, so those might be avenues to consider... or maybe a teacher's aide at school, or something, to see how you like it?

lyndzies, your beta results sound AWESOME and i 100% agree that you should go back and lie about your LMP. unless you switch to a new care group, of course, in which case who the heck cares?

beloved, you look AMAZING. thanks so much for sharing those pictures with us!

fierbugg, i totally understand you on the eating lots of crap at AF. hoping you get some good info from your labs and are able to figure out the next step!

lisko, congrats on your little man! what a perfect name! and thank you for making the stalking thread! i am SO EXCITED to stalk you guys over there.

rochelle, hope your date with that wine was amazing and relaxing! you deserve it!

afm, my temp went up today! if it stays up the next 2 days FF will put O at CD17. i was thinking CD17 or 18, so that would be great.

uh-oh, sick toddler waking up, hope she didn't yak in the bed again....
Jane's Avatar Jane 05:21 PM 01-26-2010
Congrats Carlyle!!!!!!

Lisko - love it! Can't wait until it's me, love the update!

Rochelle - I've been following you and it's just not fair.

Lynzies - super duper mega congrats! That progesterone number is so good! Progesterone is almost a better sign than hcg, in my experience. Lynzies having a baby!

Lapis - I'd do whatever your heart desires. Lots of people ask me how I can midwife when I am having trouble getting and staying pregnant...all I know is that it works for me. If it doesn't work for you, don't do it.
I know I see lots of people desperate for same language support in birth - looking for english speaking doulas all over the world. Quite a niche if you want to snuggle into it. I know navelgazingmidwife/Barb Herrera worked as a doula in Germany and had babies there.

Afm - hcg has dropped to zero and I'm cycling again. Now starts the folic acid push and the waiting game (3-6 months). Boy it's fun to find an effective birth control method when all I really want is a baby. NOT. But it's nice to be making love again. I missed that when I was not well enough to do it. heh. heh. I said "do it".
Outside appearance - reasonable, knowledgable 32 year old midwife. Inside - 12 year old, heh heh.

I was going to do some personals snce it's always all about me so lemme see what I can do in the minute or so before DS realizes I am not there to refil his drink.

Nanette I'm so glad you got the all clear! Let the games begin!!!

Apricot Huh huh (insert Beavis and Butthead laugh here) You said "Do it" huh huh

Lyndzies Nice numbers! I think someone mentioned progesterone being high was better than hcg. Makes sense since my last loss had a hcg of 30,000 at 7 wks, but a progesterone of 9.2.
You are so on your way to having a baby in 9 months!

Lisko Woooo boy!! They are the best! (says the mom of the most super fabulous boy in the world)

Aww, I'll be back I have to go squeeze him, he's awfully quiet in the next room...or outside playing in the street or wherever he is....


AFM I forgot to mention my temp dropped like a rock on cd5........why? (chart is on the homepage)
It's so far below the coverline (which is high, that's assuming I did o) that I think I got a nosebleed from the drop.
