Thanks, everyone for the good wishes. I am definitely not ready to move to graduates yet and will keep checking for more BFPs here!

 

Doularebekah, so sorry to hear about your niece. It sounds like she is a lovely, sweet girl and reminder of how precious life is.

Lilac - I am really hopeful for your IVF, you have been a constant on these threads since I started and you truly deserve some good news soon.  I am 32 now, if you want to update my age.

I'm not sure how to add my chart, but here's the link from FF:  http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3ed944

 

Met my new niece this weekend.  She's three weeks old and while she was occasionally fussy with me she did not make me want one any less.  It's official.  I want one.  Now please.

Thanks for the new thread!

 

Okay, either I'm pregnant, going to have an AF from h***, or I'm just falling apart completely. 7DPO and I am periodically nauseous, back is killing me, boobs very sore, metallic taste in mouth, crampy, and sorry for TMI but my "girl parts" are swollen and a bit sore. Before everyone tells me it's too early for symptoms...I know, I agree. :) But I still don't feel very good.

Waiting to hear from doctor on my bloodwork results. I don't know how long it'll take though, because I had to go to an outside lab.

Thanks for the new thread!  I made an appointment with an accupuncturist for the 18th.  Apparently she often works with my doctor for PCOS & fertility issues.  DH & I talked it over and decided that at the very least it won't hurt, and if it can help then it's totally worth the copay.  I'm also looking into joining a gym of some sort - time to get the exercise happening.  My thought at this point is that whenever the time is right for our baby (and however he or she joins our family - pregnancy or adoption) I want to be the healthiest, happiest momma I can be.

While I agree it's too early to tell, and hate to encourage symptom spotting, based on my recent experience I this this sounds very promising! I had a very weird bout of nausea at 4DPO (wanted to throw up in the shower in the morning, had some juice and was fine, didn't read any more into it until more than a week later) and just felt a little off a couple days before AF was due. I've got my fingers crossed for you and wish you a speedy answer, either way!

 

I now see the 2WW as an exercise in patience for the 12 WW.

 

good luck everyone! Go make some babies!  dust.gif

Onto a new month for me - AF started today right on time. 

 

librarygirl, how are you feeling?

 

Hard to believe that we are a week into September already.  My DH has to get his biometrics (picture and finger prints) taken for his green card update.  So many things in live that require waiting.  Waiting for reimbursement.  Waiting to O.  Waiting for green card.  TTC and life really require patience.

Thanks for the kind words everyone heartbeat.gif It's so nice to be part of such a supportive community!

 

lilac - I'm sorry AF found you :( It's always disappointing. Fingers crossed for you this new month, especially for the reimbursement and starting on IVF!

 

librarygirl - Hope you guys some positive answers soon!

 

Lee'sGirl - That sounds like a fantastic plan! I've been thinking the same thing myself, it's really easy to put things off and focus on TTC but really why not start getting ourselves as healthy as possible for when we are mums!

 

AFM - For the past couple of cycles there hasn't been the obvious O pattern that I usually have, I'm not too sure what's going on. FF hasn't given me crosshairs yet but my temp went up today....along with spotting? I'm wondering if I O'd on the 27th based on my chart (even though I was really bad at charting the beginning of my cycle) and I guess I'll just see what tomorrow's temp brings. Feel free to take a look and let me know what you think!

Doularebekah - you've been pretty stressed lately. Maybe that's what's making your cycle weird. Hope it sorts out soon!

 

Lee'sgirl - good luck on getting healthy! I think I'm going to start swimming again, myself. Always good to get ourselves healthy!

 

 

AFM - Still not feeling great, but less crampy. Lots of yellow CM the past few days and NO spotting on 9DPO this month! It's 10DPO and not even a hint of pink yet. Nauseous but that could also be the side effect of new medicine. I went to midwife this morning to follow up on my bloodwork. She said everything looked fantastic to her and even progesterone (original concern) was plenty high enough. She also offered to do a blood test for hcg since I got a BFN (expected, it's too early) this morning. I should hear back on Monday. Unless AF gets here first. She didn't see any reason to be concerned and said she fully expects me to be knocked up before year's end. :)

 

Off to my hometown's big festival weekend tonight. two days with all of my crazy family and lots of excitement with music, festival food, fireworks, etc. Should be a good distraction, right? I didn't pack HPTs or tampons (don't want AF to think I'm expecting her. ;) ), so no baby obsession for a few days.

doula, yeah, I second the "you have had a stressful couple of months so your cycle could be affected".  Stress has a funny way of affecting the internal workings of our bodies.

 

library girl, sounds like you will have fun!  Here is to hoping that AF doesn't show up this weekend and maybe not at all if you are pregnant!

 

AFM, this has been the slowest build up to full flow AF I have had in a long time, really light all day, but seems to be getting stronger this evening.  Here is to seeing what tomorrow brings.

Well, AF did build up to "full force" yesterday.  Today I think I am back on the downward flow direction.  It has been really cold here in Michigan compared to the weather we have been having.  It is so nice to have the windows open!  Had to put a pair of booties on to keep my feet warm.  How is everyone else?

Lilac, it's wonderfully cool in northeastern Ohio today! I'm never cold and I'm sitting here thinking, "I could use some socks!"

 

Unfortunately, AF found me today. Hiding at my mom's house didn't work. I guess all the weirdness last week just came from new med side effects and wishful thinking.

 

On to a new month, I suppose. I considered taking this month off and we still might. If I get pregnant this cycle, I'll be due the week before my sister's wedding and I feel like it's probably not fair to her to take all the attention off of her wedding and onto me and a baby (this is my sister who lives to be the life of the party and was so subdued at my wedding, out of respect, to make sure I got all the attention). At the same time, at a 25% chance, I feel like we should just risk it and figure it all out later if it happens. I've got a couple weeks to decide for sure, I guess.

 

Hope everyone takes advantage of this cooler weather to do some BD'ing. :)

librarygirl, sorry to hear that AF found you.  The challenge of timing is always a little crazy especially when you have been TTC for awhile and all you want is a BFP regardless of what is happening in other people's lives.  Do what feels right for you and your DH. If it means "not really trying" this month, then do that.  As a teacher, I know I had wanted to time getting pregnant strategically so as to have maternity leave at the end of a school year so I would have the summer too with my LO.  Well, now I just want to be pregnant regardless of when the baby would come. Since we are saving money for IVF, it looks like next summer 2013 will work out for having IVF done and hopefully I will get pregnant from that with a spring 2014 baby.  But if I get pregnant before that by the luck of nature, I will be happy for the pregnancy regardless!

 

2sweetsparrows, thanks for the heads up on the new thread.  I am glad Kimble headed over to it.  I know the ladies with babes check back in every now and then to give encouragement to those along the way.  Hopefully we will have another BFP soon to send on over.

Hi Folks,

 

Lilac, I know what you mean about patience. I hope all turns out well for you.

 

Librarygirl, we took a month off after 1 full year of TTC. It was actually really nice. It could be a good thing to take the pressure off for a few weeks.

 

Doula, stress can really throw things out of whack. I did read in TCOYF that stress will affect the first part of your cycle and not the luteal phase, for what it's worth.

 

AFM, doing the unfun limbo. Between jobs, in the 2WW, a bunch of other stuff is in-between too. I'm feeling pretty over it. I was really bad about charting the past two weeks, but it appears I probably just O'd and we actually had relations at the right time this month. Might be the right time for pregnancy #2 and baby #1.

AFM, I am getting ready to go out to Las Vegas for a convention.  I am excited.  A bunch of people together for college access network discussions - how to help kids better find what education they need post high school to do what they want to do to be successful in life!  I am totally pumped.

How is everyone?  I got back from Las Vegas on Wednesday night.  The convention was great.  Learned lots of new things.  Took a few days off of temping because of the shift ahead 3 hours of time and the fact that my roommate for the convention would come in later than me and get up way earlier than me.  Thankfully the Bajingo Juice started to flow on the day I was coming home.  I was worried I might O while I was away from DH.  Looks like there is still a chance this cycle.

Lilac, glad you had a good trip!

 

It has been quiet around here.

 

AFM- we did decide we wouldn't TRY this month but we also wouldn't prevent. Then, I ended up O'ing a week early (thanks, Metformin!) and our timing was perfect for conceiving so, we'll see what happens in a couple weeks. The timing wouldn't be great (sister's wedding, busiest time of year at work), but I won't say no to a June-bug baby. smile.gif

 

I also had a cool experience at work yesterday. We are planning a HUGE renovation and when I was asked for a list of what I want in my department (I'm the department manager), I included a space to pump breastmilk. I included a link to a website that discusses the law regarding nursing mothers. Had a meeting with the boss yesterday about renovation stuff and he brought that item up. This is my conservative, male, "oh my god, why do I work with all these women and why do they tell me things", boss and I expected him to say we couldn't do it or the board wouldn't support it (we're too small for FLSA and can be exempted from a lot of the rules). Not only did he bring it up, we had an actual discussion about what would be needed to accomplish this and he thanked me for thinking ahead and said he thought it was an important aspect and if that's what I wanted, he was sure we could accomplish it.

Bit of bragging on myself- I'm damn good at my job and director and board know it. They want to keep me happy because although I have no plans to leave, they really want to make sure I'll stay, even after I have a baby.

Lilac, good to hear that you had a nice time at your convention. I find continuing ed events invigorating, they renew my enthusiasm for what I do and affirm that I am on the right path. Good timing too, you never know...

 

Librarygirl, that's awesome that your boss recognizes the value of keeping you happy and of course to have a space available for other future moms. And timing wise it sounds like this might be the "oh look, wouldn't you know" month...

 

AFM: Was having a pretty hard time earlier this month, that's why it's been so quiet on my part. Been hanging out in the Saner TTC thread which is so helpful for me. I've found I'm definitely the kind of person who does better without the day to day symptom spotting.

I ran out of vitex a while back and decided to hold off since the specialist wants me off herbal supplements if I do Clomid. So this cycle is a bit wonky though it does look like I'm gearing up to O in the next 3-4 days, which is still better than CD28 (CD20 today). I'm hopeful, just like I am every month but I also feel good about knowing I can start with Clomid next cycle. Now if I could just talk DH into the idea of IUI...


Now that I am a mom I no longer have time for knit.gif,teapot2.GIF,read.gif

Library girl, that is so cool that you are able to work out a space to pump breast milk.  That is forward thinking. Always good to consider what is coming even when you intend to stay.

 

dakipode, hope things work themselves out as you get off the herbal supplements in preparation for the Clomid cycle.  I hope you can talk you DH into an IUI if it is necessary.  I know if it was a possibility for me and my DH, I would totally be on board with it. 

 

AFM, I am so glad it is Friday.  DH works 4 days a week, generally for 10 hours a day, so he usually has Friday off.  DH and my little brother (who is 21 years old) cleaned the house so I am totally able to relax which is so nice.

I'm tentatively peeking in to say hi... and that I miss this group. I'm not certain that I'm ready to be forum surfing and posting again, but I think about this group frequently and hope everyone is doing well.

 

I've been focusing on regaining some emotional health after my 3rd miscarriage in January. The last month or two have been better for me and it helps that we are moving forward and receiving our first month of fertility treatments. My doc put me on clomid. I did a trigger shot a week ago and had my first IUI on Monday. So now we wait.

 

I'm trying not to stress or obsess, so I'm distracting myself with knitting and throwing myself into my teaching. We just bought our house from my hubby's ex, so that has been a wonderful distraction too. We've been doing some fix-ups that have been long overdue... new roof, heat upstairs, a/c, etc.

 

What are you all doing to keep busy this fall?

Hi Tickletoes. Sorry to hear about your losses. :( I hope you are healing.

 

What am I doing? Well, I'm hosting a little reunion for my college friends at my place and a week after that, hosting a big Halloween party for friends and family so decorating and cooking projects are occupying my time. And puppy obedience school. After that, I think we'll work on my bedroom. DH and I are very much in love and we have a good sex life but we do sleep in separate bedrooms most nights due to insomnia (him) and snoring (me) and a myriad of other sleep issues. When we get our baby, my room will also be baby's room, provided we're still in this house (which is likely). I want to paint and redecorate and make it pretty. It doesn't look much different than it did the day we moved it. I've never done anything with it and it's a mess. I'm working on a theme/color scheme right now that isn't too "baby" so it can just be my room until our little one gets here and then can easily turn into a nursery. Leaning towards gray/coral/yellow/orange, in kind of a modern looking schemeLike: https://pinterest.com/pin/280208408036426030/.    Also liking aqua and yellow together which is kind of beachy but the rest of the house is very "caribbean" so it would fit. like this one: https://pinterest.com/pin/280208408036718791/ Good project to help with staying sane during the TTC process.

 

What's everyone else up to?

tickletoes, I am so glad to see you again!  I hope the clomid and IUI are successful. Exciting times for you!  How am I keeping myself busy? Sewing, crocheting, and creating Algebra 2 videos for students to grade their own homework (because some kids get so lost in fractions, adding and subtracting positive and negative numbers, and in solving for a variable that my class time to teach new content disappears just answering yesterday's questions).  I made a dress for a new little girl and the photo is here http://instagram.com/p/P7Ce97pdSs/

 

librarygirl, the second nursery with aqua and yellow looks so inviting. Great idea to spend your time making your home a little more inviting while you wait for a little one to eventually be a part of it. I have been in my present home for 7 years and only painted one room - blue.  Been married for 2 years and I really need to update curtains or something to make our home "our home".  The only decorations that really changed when I married was bedding and bedroom curtains - which I love. Something new would be nice. Saving for IVF comes first though.

 

I saw that mole had her little boy - http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1363491/weekly-chat-september-17-23/280 on page 15.  Sounds like it was a rough go of it for her and the little boy.

Wow, another baby born last week - Nemrac had her little boy 2 months early last week on Sept. 19 . The little boy is breathing on his own and he looks so perfect even though he was early.

 

You can congratulate her over http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1363794/its-a-virgo/20
