@ rosie....first, thank you so much for all your input on the clear blue easy. I was about to drop over $200 on one, it was a good deal, came with 2 month supply of pee strips, but was also thinking of checking on a lightly used one on Craigs list, but even if it was a good deal over $200 for something I probably don't need is not a good deal. I really appreciate all the time you took to explain pros and cons. I'd probably go nuts and get completely obsessed with it. I think the money would be much better spent on possibly seeing a TCM or a naturopath (I don't think insurance covers). My issue is most likely with egg quality or a hormone imbalance. I'd actually prefer it to be the timing issue but have to admit to myself the whole age BS. I'm sorry, it just passes me off. Never in a million years did I think that I'd be dealing with the age issue. I swear just yesterday I was 36...at least it feels the way. Hopefully there is some merit to egg quality and the age of your body's health vs the actual numbers. I just do not feel that my body is 41...geeze, it's even weird to look at that number. Sorry , I'm rambling. I totally get how you feel about the post BFP before even an intro...it does feel like a kick in the gut. Hopefully, it was not intended as such but one should take a moment and read and then decide if this is the best place to share right off the bat. So I respect that you had the balls to say something. Hopefully it will help and it won't happen again, here or elsewhere. I'd personally like to know if I've stuck my foot in my mouth so I can apologize and understand where people are coming from. I suffer from foot in mouth syndrome and often it's not intended but it has made me stop and think before I say or do the first thing that comes to mind. Anyway, how are you doing in your TWW from hell, at least that's how I feel about mine..the days seem to drag, when I just want to know. So I hope you've been trying not to obsess, but on the other hand ...noticed any symptoms yet...lol? I think the simplify approach sounds like a good one ...easier said then done(for me) , but most like the best approach. I do have a good feeling about this month...so many successful stories...hopefully we will all join the sticky parade.
@ alivewithyou...awesome numbers and thanks for the CBE input, gotta find the time to try and link my chart. Hope your feeling well.
...thanks for giving me your input also, sorry this month was a bust. Seeing that stark white sucks! Hopefully it happens very soon for you. And welcome...BTW unless I missed something(highly possible), I haven't noticed your posts before...Hope your stay is short and sweet.
. ..how are you feeling? Is it sinking in yet? Hope all is well!
j. .. praying the low progesterone numbers don't mean anything and you have a happy and strong bean growing like crazy. Try to stay positive, I just have a feeling that this is IT for you!
caleata. ..Hi there...any decisions on how you'll move forward. ..stupid spotting.
. .Hope the red lady hasn't come to visit.
. ..I feel like singing ...it's the final countdown...! I'm also really curious about how all the choosing of the donor works. Please share with us...it's got to be exciting. .I'm excited anyway..I'm sure you are too.
...welcome..I'm so sorry for your loss. It's heartbreaking to think about. The low motility was a kick in the teeth I'm sure... try not to get too discouraged about that though. There are tons of supplements that many mama's have had great success with on here. I'm sure that won't hold you back. I hope your stay is short and sweet. Btw...I'm originally from Baltimore area...a bit north, on the pa line...now I've crossed over. DH is as well, we like to go back now and then to visit. Are you actually in Baltimore or outside?
Sorry if I missed anyone. .on my phone as usual and hard to scroll back...Hi and hope all is well.
@sewiland...wow, your stay will be short and sweet. I'm sorry that you took a leap into the wrong pool with your happy news. Don't get me wrong...success is awesome...I just hope you can understand the perspective that rosie pointed out. It's hard...kinda like being the new kid in the neighborhood with a brand new bike, walking into a group of kids who have been saving up for months, to buy that exact same bike...have had it stolen a few times and are saving up all over again for that awesome bike that is just out of their reach, and you come in ringing the bell(dont ask me where the bell came from, guess i always wanted a bike with a bell) and riding circles around them...do ya know what I mean. If you'd been saving up with us and got a bike first we would be the first to scream hooray...but when you don't know the kid..it makes you want to....do things like throw rocks as the kid rides by... (ok, that's a bit harsh,... just trying to save my sinking analogy). I hope you can understand. Have a happy and healthy 9 months.
AFM...well I don't think I'll be dropping the $200+ on the CBE monitor. I'm going to try to keep my sanity and stop obsessing and pray! Not much else to do in the dreaded TWW...maybe ill go to the health food store and get the progesterone cream, probably won't help but may make me feel better...unless anyone knows if there's a black market for progesterone. ..lol. stay positive and keep smiling. ..water your plants and do the pregnancy dance. (I swear I did not intend to make that rhyme)*gotta draw the cheesy line somewhere*
