JustJenny I told DH last cycle that if we didn't succeed I wanted to do IUI. When I spoke to the doc he seemed to imply that DH's low volume might not be enough and IUI would help increase the odds. I'm tempted to try IUI and then some BDing on top of that just to flood the area with swimmers as much as possible...

librarygirlhug2.gif The guilt is really what gets me. I start thinking: why can't I just be happy for them, why do I have to make this about me? But I can't help it, every time it's a reminder of what you don't have. DTD at your parents' would be awkward, even though it sounds like they are supportive. Hope your O comes soon!

lilac an adjustable dress form sounds like an awesome tool to have!

AFM: no news here. I missed the phone call with test results by 10 minutes and by the time I called her back I got the answering machine. It's so frustrating to try and get a hold of a nurse at my clinic. It pretty much always comes down to leaving a message and then they'll call you back sometime before 5pm... Unless you call after 4pm in which case they'll call you the next day. And since it was Friday I'm thinking they'll call me tomorrow. And with my luck they'll call while I'm unavailable and I'll have to call and leave a msg again... Sorry about the rant, just a bit frustrated because I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant and I just want AF to come so I can move on to the next cycle.
On a lighter note: I think DH and I are going to try one of the fancy Thanksgiving dinners the local hotels put on. It's just the two of us and we usually go to Cracker Barrel but DH said he wanted to do something out of the ordinary this year so maybe we'll give that a try.
Have a happy week everyone!

Hi Ladies,

 

November has been quiet on this thread!

 

Lilac, glad to hear about the money... Bring it on! Good luck with everything.

 

Quote:
And so they sent the whole thing back to us saying we paid too much - because a minor doesn't pay some $90 biometrics fee

 

-- LOL! Sounds like a Kafkaesque bureaucratic messup! So funny that they caught it because they thought he was a minor.

 

Dakipode, It sounds like the IUI might be a good option. And the hotel Thanksgiving sounds lovely! Your avatar makes me think that you're very sophisticated so it's funny to think of you going to Cracker Barrel. I'm not knocking it-- Cracker Barrel is pure manna from heaven to my mom. I haven't had chicken in 20 years but she claims the chicken fried chicken is transcendent. I just imagine you are in some very stylish clothing with a neat bun on your head, chowing down on biscuits and gravy :).

 

Also, you asked about the baby registry... The thing about the Amazon baby registry is that you can't look at it unless you click on registries, and then baby registry. It's not in your face, and it can be out of sight, out of mind. I can just do my regular shopping and not be reminded of the lack of baby. But whenever I do need the registry I'll have done the research and shopping already.

 

LibraryGirl, nice thing about NaNo is that no one is counting on you to finish. No contract to fulfill, just fun. So if you want to take a break that's totally OK :) ... I can't imagine the cluster headaches. It sounds so much worse than Mr Viddy's migraines.

 

Coquelicot, hello! Welcome.

 

AFM, I am on CD 27. I had 3 32 day cycles after my pregnancy but the last few cycles are back to my normal clockwork 28. Temp was still up this morning and my boobs are puffed up; they usually un-puff the day before AF. And we got 3 BD's in during my fertile window. Unheard of for us!! I'm feeling like it wouldn't be totally unreasonable to POAS tomorrow morning. Unlike most months, there is a reasonable possibility that I might actually be pregnant. We'll see!

 

I've been super distracted with life recently. Lots of good stuff in the works!

Another month of false hope. AF came full-blow this morning, not a minute late on day 28. She didn't even grace me with a half day of spotting to keep me wondering for a while. Womp womp. gloomy.gif
 

What I didn't mention yesterday is that I started talking to a health counselor recommended by one of my mom's friends. I also went into my OB to get a thyroid and hormone workup. Six months from my loss and still no good reason to think that one of us might have a fertility issue, 15 cycles with no pregnancy since we stopped using protection.

Going a little crazy here with the posting, but I just talked to my OB. All of my thyroid and hormone levels are 100% normal. Hm. I kind of wish there was something to blame this on.

TeamViddy I laughed out loud when I read your comment about me being sophisticated! I'll take it as a compliment. I'm sorry AF found you. I can relate to wanting to find a reason, something, anything that indicates that it's a factor that is within your control and it's not just luck (or lack thereof). I chose to go see the specialist fairly early on because of that. I wanted as much reassurance as possible that we were doing everything within our control to "get it right"

AFM, cross posted in Saner TTC thread: you ladies must think I'm a total idiot who can't read an HPT but I swear my two cheapies and my expensive one were all negative! However, according to the bloodwork I am miraculously pregnant! It's very weird and the last 24 hours have been a total mind fuck because I also happened to unexpectedly have to euthanize my cat last night. So last night at the emergency vet I hadn't told DH yet and I thought: I can't tell him here... I'm totally conflicted about feeling happy and sad at the same time... I'm due at the fertility clinic for an ultrasound next week to confirm that there really is something there. I don't feel pregnant at all. I was completely baffled when the nurse called me with the result

Dakipode, fantastic! Good luck to you! It sounds difficult, complicated, and exhilarating. Our close friends were over 40 and assumed they wouldn't have kids. About 4 years ago they had to put their cat to sleep, and a few weeks later they found out they were expecting. Their little girl is this glowing, magnetic firecracker; gorgeous, friendly, and truly special.

dakipode - Congratulations!! Wow, what amazing news! I'd been thinking of you and checking in here to see what your results are, I'm so pleased for you both! joy.gif

 

TeamViddy - I'm sorry to hear that you're not getting any luck with finding answers. I totally know what you mean about wishing something came back negative or wrong, so at least you'd have an answer or something to pin it on. It's a rough road this TTC journey, for sure. hug2.gif

 

lilac - I can't remember if I already said congrats on the reimbursement or just thought it, but if I didn't - congrats! Having that money must be a huge load off for you both as you look toward IVF. Of course, still crossing my fingers hard that you'll get knocked up in the mean time smile.gif

 

AFM - By tomorrow I should know if I've O'd and our timing was pretty good this month, so I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much. I'm always so calm up until this point!

Hello ladies,
Apparently my not-so-great enthusiasm was premature. I was diagnosed yesterday with an ectopic pregnancy and given drugs to terminate.
So I'm back to TTC. I'm calling it waiting for AF since I only knew I was pregnant for 4.5 days and even then it didn't feel quite real.
Sorry to have to be the bearer of bad news today.

Oh, dakipode, I am so sorry.  May you get the rest you need to move through this time of loss.

dakipode, I hope things are going okay for you.

 

AFM, I am having a long cycle - CD 22 and no sign of O yet with lots of EWCM. I had a dream that I had a BFP on a pregnancy test. I hope that dream comes true sooner rather than later.

Finally, my temp has spiked and my EWCM has dried up.  Now I just have to wait a couple days to make sure my temp stays up.  I am feeling nauseous this morning. Not sure what that is about, since even if by some miracle my DH's sperm met my egg, it wouldn't be implanted yet and making pregnancy hormones.  Anyway, here is to waiting.

 

Last night to break up the monotony of waiting I made a fleece pillow case for my SIL for Christmas. I hope she likes it. Is anyone else doing some fun things as the Christmas season approaches?

Hi! I'm new. I think I accidentally posted my life story to the October version of this thread. Whoops. When it pops up (it's awaiting moderator approval), I'll move it over here. Sorry about that! I'm 32, really just started actively trying to get pregnant this past cycle (no dice).

Hi, I'm back and unfortunately no new news. Would you all believe that I could't remember the name if this website? I wish I could blame it on baby-brain smile.gif

My Christmas holiday has been filled and surrounded by babies. My SIL and 2 good friends all had babies this month. Then I found out that 3 more friends are preggers....not to mention the 3 that are due up until march. Needless to say that I'm happy for them, but it's been emotional for me behind closed doors.

I ran out of opk tests yesterday, and I think I'm ovulating later than I thought I would. I'm on CD 20 of a 30-31 day cycle. I think I may be ovulating today, but just not sure. So gonna bd tonight and over the next few days just in case.

I wish you all a very happy New Year and wish you good news in 2013!!
