Still waiting for the call. I had my bloodwork done at 7:30 and usually they call by 1:30, but not today!

Thanks for the support and hugs. They are very welcomed right now. I am heartbroken, but trying to stay positive for the next cycle. Brichole, our next step is more of the same. Our specialist wants to repeat the same thing for the next cycle (Femara + Ovidrel trigger, 2x IUI, and progesterone suppositories). I was told to call on cycle day 1. I don't have regular periods, but since I was taking the Femara she thinks I'll probably have one in the next few days. If I don't by Friday I call in and see what happens next. I think I may delete my facebook account. The only thing holding me back is that it's the only way I stay in touch with a lot of people. It's so convenient. I just can't take all the pregnancy and baby announcements right now. Here on this board, it makes me happy and hopeful. Anywhere else, I'm just bitter.

I'm so sorry to hear that Shesaidboom. I can understand the FB thing. I hid all the people who were pregnant or had recently had babies when I kept getting BFNs. That way you can still keep up with people, but not have to deal with all the pictures and everything.


Mama to my twin butterfly boys, Alan and Bruce, who passed away at 22 weeks gestation (3/24/12): Forever in Our Hearts. Our rainbow baby girl, my little bud of Hope,  joined our butterfly boys and Grandma Jan 1/31/13 at 9 weeks gestation. Love you so much. Next step: triadadopt.jpg

Shesaidboom- So sorry to hear about today's result. I will definitely be cheering you on for next cycle! I can't stand all the baby pictures and birth announcements on FB either... I just try and remind myself when it is me (or when it is you) that I will want to be able to yell it out from mountaintops, and have people happy for me. So I try and bear with it as part of the process. Infertility is very humbling, I hope to someday consider myself a better and stronger person because of the path it has taken to get there. Love and Hugs to you, take a few days to go easy on yourself, before you know it the next cycle will start over, and somehow our bodies brighten up and move forward.

Shesaidboom, my heart broke for you when I read the negative :o( i'm so sorry. I'm really hopeful for the next round. Your chances go up with the next round so hopefully, it will be the positive cycle for you!!

 

Fb has scarred me, actually. Even now, i loathe to go on and I basically just look to see if I have to wish anyone a happy birthday. I've already planned not to announce my pregnancy on fb just in case others in my friend list are having infertility issues because i remember how awful it was. There was this whole article recently talking about how facebook really makes many people sad because the people who post only post the wonderful stuff and it makes those people's lives look better than they really are. So you're definitely not alone. I'm so sorry but hopefully next month, we will be able to celebrate!! i hope you get your AF soon!!

renavoo - that article doesn't surprise me. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way about facebook. You're very sweet to be so sensitive to others!

 

cbaa - I hope the path we've been down does make us stronger. Right now though, I feel that we're strong enough and we just need those BFPs!

 

deborah -  I think I might have to start hiding people too. I haven't signed in at all in the past several days, but when I do that might be a good idea.

 

 

So, I *think* AF is here. I'm not sure. I'm having spotting, along the lines of that fake AF I got when first starting the Femara. Should I call the RE's office anyway to let them know it's CD1? I'm really not sure if this counts.

 

EDIT: definitely here now. I am on CD1.

 

gozal - can I change my status to:

 

Shesaidboom (27) TTC #1 since 2007. Struggling with PCOS. Currently undergoing 2nd IUI cycle using Femara, Ovidrel, and Progesterone Suppositories.

 

Thanks!

Shesaidboom- I keep thinking the came thing- I think I've learned enough, grown enough and become humbled enough... Now please time for baby... I'm glad cd1 is here & you can get started on your bfp cycle!

Renavoo- you're getting closer to announcement time!!! It's your babies unofficial first thanksgiving!

Goal- good luck on your Clomid cycle! When do you start?

To everyone--- Happy Thanksgiving to all in the states, to all overseas, happy Thursday, hope you all have something today to be thankful for!

Afm- I'm thankful my family will be together today for thanksgiving, for the support you all give me, and to be able to still find hope even after continued disappointment and against my better judgement. I'm off to cook for 15 adults, 1 teen, 2 toddlers, & 2 infants. 8 dpo... This is the hopeful part I hate... I can't help thinking I could be getting preggo or already preggo right now, just to not be in a few days. Viscous circle ya know! Have a great day everyone.

Hi ladies!!! I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday had a great day!  I know that our day was great until we got to DH's family get together.  Emma like NEVER sees these people and she cried for 2 hours straight when they tried to take her!!! It was really getting on my nerves because they just kept saying she was spoiled and didn't have to have her mommy and daddy all of the time!!! I was like PLEASE STOP MAKING MY CHILD CRY AND GIVE HER TO ME!!! Sorry, had to vent real quick.  That really hurt my feelings and made me just want to cry with her.  We only stayed there for 4 hours but still her crying for a least half of the time hurt me bad!!!

 

Shesaidboom:  I know that AF is never really welcome usually, but i'm happy that she did show up for you so that you can get moving onto your next cycle and a BFP!!!

 

Renavoo:  Do you and DH have a special way you are planning on announcing your pregnancy at Christmas?  I LOVE to see announcements like that!! It makes me all warm inside hehe!  My aunt and uncle annoucned their pregnancy to my grandmother on Christmas when they were pregnant with my cousin (i think we were like 2 but i have watched the video) anyways, they way that they told her was they gave her an empty photo album and a note that said "you're going to be a grandma".  Well, it took my grandmother a minute because of course she was already a grandmother to me and my brother lol....so when it finally hit her that it was my aunt and uncle expecting a child her face was priceless on the video.  I've also gotten to see the video of my aunt telling my uncle on Christmas morning.  They always videoed themselves opening their christmas presants and she gave him a gift with a "welcoming At the end of Summer 1988!"  LOL it was great!!!  I hope that you are able to make it special, how ever you announce your WONDERFUL news!!

 

Gozal:  How are things going with the Clomid?  I hope you haven't been effected too bad by the hormonal changes!

 

Cbaa:  Are you going to be testing if AF doesn't show up within the next few days or are you going to go have a beta done at the doctor?  I'm waiting to see how this cycle turns out for you :)

 

 

AFM: I FINALLY got my crosshairs on FF and i'm 7dpo today.  I'm really not hopeful because by this time in my cycle my temps are usually WAY up there and they are still below 98 right now...so I don't think this was our month either.  I guess i'll know in 8 days!!! I guess the only good thing i see is I still have at least 1 more cycle before we have to actually start preventing for a few months!!! Either way i'll still be here cheering everyone on!!!  I hope everyone has a great day after thanksgiving!!! I've gotta start getting everything ready this afternoon for DH's birthday that is tomorrow!  DD#1 made him open one of his gifts last night, so she was super excited that he liked the UNC (university of North Carolina) pullover that we got him...She loves her step dad so much!!!

cbaa & shesaidboom - I'm with you. I personally do not believe that "everything happens for a reason" (i.e. one that will ultimately prove to be necessary/beneficial). I think some people have bum luck, and that it's fine to be upset about it. I certainly am!

 

I'm not a huge Facebook user and in general I like it - it really is a nice way to keep in touch with people. We have family and friends all over the world. I'm just taking a break because it is hard for me to see pg anouncements right now. I don't begrudge them in the least, I just don't want to cry over how not pg I am. So why go there, you know? 

 

brichole, awww, what a sweet story. Maybe your lowish temps are a big old estrogen surge post-implantation?!

 

So, day 3 of clomid and so far, I've had no side effects. I know they can come later though, so I'm constantly on the lookout. For some reason the prospect of hot flashes freaks me out. (Generally I'm not squeamish when it comes to stuff like that...) Monday I go for b/w and depending on the results, an u/s later next week.

Gozal:  I really hope so lol.  And i hope that your b/w comes back great and you get to have an u/s later next week! I am REALLY praying that the clomid does the trick!  Will you guys be doing "natural" insemination or will you be doing IUI?

Ok, i'm like a horrible gift giver and i have a momma i'm responsible for giving a gift to on her babies 1st birthday (and probably several more birthdays to come but for now we are sticking to just this year) and I don't know if this would be a gift that anyone would really like to have or not.  Could i PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get some imput on the gift idea?  I'm not good at giving gifts most of the time, especially since i don't know this mom personally...but i'm even worse at just telling someone what i got them lol.  I am open to suggestions or whatever good or bad about the gift idea...

 

 

TIA

Brandy

Brandy, as a tea lover myself, I think it looks like a great gift. I've never seen anything like that before! I'm also a terrible gift chooser... I buy thoughtful things constantly, but I always give them right to the person & then have nothing to give for holidays...

Gozal- I'm glad to hear you haven't had side effects. I only had night sweats, nothing lingered past my last pill. Soooooo don't keep waiting for the worst! I had hot flashes when I tried soy isoflavones, they were really weird! I hope the b/w comes out good! Made some pretty eggs! I started drinking red clover tea to boost my estrogen (but not til I found out it was low).

Afm-yaaawn... 9dpo.

Hi ladies!! i hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! i can't believe Thanksgiving is past already...where does the time go?

 

Brichole, the gift looks beautiful and it looks like, from the ratings, most people love it. The question is, does this mother like tea? Also, if it is for the babies first birthday, would you want to buy something for the baby or for the mother? I would think it's easier to shop for the babies. haha all the little things you can buy for babies are so much cuter that everything looks good! 7dpo! So when are you going to test? :o)

 

Cbaa, 9dop means that this week should be when you get your BFP!! WEEE! I'm definitely hoping for it! I'm happy that you had your dinner to take your mind off for a couple of days, at least.

 

Gozal, for my three rounds of clomid, I basically had no side effects (i think i would have welcomed hot flashes, actually, because i'm always cold. haha) But seriously, I had a little nausea but otherwise, i felt fine. I hope that happens with you! hmmm I never had blood work with the clomid done so I wonder what they are looking for? Maybe an increase in FSH, since clomid is supposed to result in a bump in FSH because it neutralizes the estrogen effect? Interesting! Well, i hope that the results go well and you get your US!

 

AFM, nothing doing here! i don't have a special way to announce. all my family already knows so it's not a big deal. My friends will probably just get an email from me. I'm not really a huge celebrator, to be honest. A couple of my best girl friends who know already (they knew I was going through IVF and I go out to dinner with them once a week so they would have guessed since I don't even drink a glass of wine anymore!) asked if I was going to have a baby shower and i told them I don't think so. I just always feel uncomfortable being the center of attention (explains why I eloped :o) and never had a reception!) so who knows! But DH and i will decide in the future. DH is happy to do whatever I do but he requests that if we have a baby shower, we have one where the men can play video games. haha.


Attempted induction at 38 weeks; ended up with a c-section.

In love with my baby boy Colin and baby girl Sienna!

Thanks ladies.  I have been "facebook stalking" the mamma i have to buy for just to see and i think that she would like the gift with what i've seen.  We have decided to celebrate the mom's from our DDC last year and so Yes, we are excited that the babies are turning 1 but we are i guess trying to show each other how much we respect each mom for her hard work to get the babies here.  I think some times people forget what mom goes thru when a baby is born and a lot of people put the baby first all of the time and don't think about how long mom carried the baby and what mom went thru during labor...that's some hard work...even if you have a c-section it's still a lot of work...so we are trying to say "We appreciate you" to mommy too on babies birthday.  I was taught that you are supposed to send your mom flowers or a small gift on your birthday to let her know how much you appreciate her...well baby is too small right now to do that on their own so we are doing it for them : ) 

 

Renavoo: I still have your address so when you get further along and if you guys decide to find out what sex the babies i will probably send you a little something.  Being a fellow twinkie makes me warm inside lol.  I know that there are more twins out there than most people realize but i feel like it's a very special thing to be able to be born with another person...and to have someone special to grow up with and who will understand you when no one else does!!!  Also, i'm 8DPO and FF is saying I should test Thursday...but i'm not really sure if I want to do that or if i will just wait to see if AF shows up.  My temp dipped this morning again...and i'm not sure if it's because it's cold outside or if i slept bad last night...i know i have been staying up later at night and still having to get up early in the morning but i don't know if that would hurt my temps or not.  I really don't have any symptoms though...I really am not going to hold my breath for this cycle.

 

I hope everyone else is doing great too!!!  I just finished MOST of my Christmas Wrapping and that makes me smile!! I'm only waiting on 5 more gifts in the mail so that I can wrap them and be done!!! One of those gifts is my Kindle Fire that DH ordered for me though...and it's going to take everything in me to wrap it and put it under the tree lol.  I think the only other thing we are missing are stocking stuffers...but that won't take long to find and i don't want to buy those too early.

OMG!!!  My temps are going to be soooo off today! I got called into work at 3am and i'm NOT happy!!! My temp was down...like way down this morning...and i am  thinking of just putting it into FF and then disreguarding the temp since 1) it's not my mornal temp time and 2) I didn't get much sleep last night before having to wake up to come in.  I am sooooooo tired of crazy hours!!!

 

I really feel bad for my DH! His 32nd birthday was yesterday and the only people who told him happy birthday (other than on facebook) was my family!!! His family didn't even call or write anything on his facebook page.  I mean who doesn't call and wish their son or brother a happy birthday?  I felt really horrible...but i tried to make yesterday as good as possible for him. 

 

I'm really not feeling pg this month.  I am pretty sure that AF will be showing her face this next weekend.  It won't make for a great weekend since it's the weekend that we are doing birthday parties for the girls.  Oh well, at least we will be on to our next and final cycle before my surgery is due!  I'm getting nervous but excited at the same time.  I'm just not looking forward to hurting for 6 to 9 weeks...but at least I know that i will have less neck pain and won't have to order my bras off line anymore lol.

Brichole, hug2.gif That SUCKS! I'm so sorry that you were woken up and had to go to work so early. sniff. Don't worry about your temping though. Although do you have to go in at such a time tomorrow too? Because your time will be off then too. Ugh, your job definitely makes it so difficult to temp because I know your hours are so crazy!

I'm so excited for you about your surgery!! I know that it'll be worth it because although it'll hurt for a couple of months, it'll hopefully give you a lifetime of more comfort! I hope so too. Of course, I also hope you're pregnant but i know that will put off the surgery for a while. haha I don't know what to wish for you! :o)

 

as for dh, WOW, that is cold of the family. Are they upset with him or normally, just not very good at remember the birthdays? Perhaps it was because it was so close to the holidays? I definitely wouldn't excuse them but i'm hoping that there is a reason (although not very good one) that they forgot DH's birthday the way they did. Well, tell him I said happy belated! 32 is a great year and I hope that he has a wonderful one, and many more!

 

By the way, i think it's wonderful that you're going to buy a gift for the mother! I didn't think of it but that is so unbelievably special that you're thinking of the mother as well as the babies :o) you have such an amazing heart. So, did you decide to buy the tea set? It really is a gorgeous present. As for something for me, you're too sweet. It's really unnecessary though. haha i already have way too much stuff. i'm something of a hoarder ;o) I love that you call yourself a twinkie :o) I'm going to start calling my babies twinkles. haha

 

Anyway, i hope that work was ok for you and that you get some rest! 

 

Hello to everyone else! I can't believe it's Sunday already but i hope everyone had a fantastic weekend :o) 

 


Attempted induction at 38 weeks; ended up with a c-section.

In love with my baby boy Colin and baby girl Sienna!

Brichole- Sorry you got called in so early! My temps are off today too because I woke up at 5 when I've been getting up at 730! What a life, right? I hope that whatever is in your future will make you happy. There are obviously benefits to either one, new baby, or smaller boobies!

 

Alright I have some more progesterone complaints... Seriously, I'm too afraid to take a test and get a BFN but this is my second go on progesterone and my LP symptoms are completely different. My boobs didn't start getting sore until 8dpo (usually starts right after O), my nipples don't hurt to the touch, but I feel like I can constantly 'feel' them all burning and sore, my face looks like the 4th of July  where I didn't break out at all last time on Prog. and usually if I do break out it is just like 1 or 2 pimples for 1 day. My temps basically mean nothing since I've been temping 2 hrs later than usual b/c of 5 days off for the holiday. I'm just not sure about testing, my beta is at 830 on Wednesday, in a way I want to know before, but in another way I just don't think I can deal with the BFN.

 

Renavoo, Shesaidboom, Gozal--- any advice from my fellow suppository users, anyone feel anything like that?

Thank you Renavoo and Cbaa!!!  I will be happy either way.  DH still isn't THRILLED about the breast reduction, but he's coming around.  We have talked about the vasectomy that he's thought about having too a lot more lately.  I think that we are going to put it off for at least another year to see where things go and if we can't get pregnant on our own then we probably won't worry about it....UNLESS i see that my new insurance thru the company who won our contract this past week has really good coverage for IF treatment then i'm going to try to talk DH into doing at least 2 or 3 rounds of medicated and monitored treatment again.  I got one baby out of it last time so i'm hoping that my chances of only having 1 the second time would be the same lol.  Though, having twins wouldn't be completely a bad thing.  I would just be considered high risk pregnancy with having twins and already having had 2 c-sections!!!

 

 I am so drained today!! I will make it though.  We are planning on family night with just me, DH and the girls so we will see if everyone listens and stays away from our house tonight lol.  I hate to be negative but i think somedays i wish this christmas could just be me and dh and the girls.  I mean don't get me wrong i love family...but i feel like we are always on the go when it comes to holidays!  DH just said "whatever" when i tried to talk to him about his family not calling him yesterday.  He still hasn't heard from them today.  I'm guessing they figured since they saw him on Thanksgiving and told him happy birthday then for like 2 seconds then that counted...but i can't imagin not wanting to tell my child or grandchild happy birthday ON their birthday!!! I know that i never go a year without telling my twin brother happy birthday...even if he's out of state working...we both always make time to call each other and say happy birthday.  There have only been 2 birthdays that I can think of that he was out of town for the entire weekend of our birthday and we didn't get to see each other and those two years my birthday just wasn't the same.  I think I would be lost if I didn't have a sibbling to be so close to.

 

My work schedule should get back to almost normal the rest of the week so my temps should be back to normal.  I am taking off this coming Saturday and Sunday though because of the birthday parties for the girls....so i will work monday, off tuesday and wednesday, work thursday and friday, off saturday and sunday, then work again monday.  Then my off days start over again lol.  I like being able to take off work though.  I just hope that I can get some sleep in the middle of all of the running around we have going on in December!!!

 

Cbaa:  I've never been on prog., so no advice to give there...but I personally always took a test before my beta's when i was doing my fertility treatements.  I am a POAS addic though...so i would be peeing on tests already lol.  I hope that Wednesday's test goes well though if you don't decide to test early...and if you do test early i hope that you see a BFP!!!  Maybe my lack of signs will help you with getting your BFP...because last month when i was pregnant and had the early miscarriage i was already feeling signs of pregnancy by now...so i pretty much have decided i'm out for this month anyways.

 

Gozal, Deborah, Monkey, Shesaidboom, and everyone else:  I how are you gals doing?  I hope well!!!

cbaa, Ugh progesterone!! Right?! I hate to say it but last cycle I had symptoms/reactions just like what you're describing. (Now this is not necessarily a bad thing - you could just as well be pg than not, it's just that you can't tell. Infuriating, I know.) I felt absolutely nothing after o and was completely non-pg-feeling. Then around 8-9dpo I started feeling all the stuff you're describing and thought to myself, well, maybe. Basically my conclusion, based on all the cycles we've been able to try, is that symptoms/sensations/feelings/intuitions during a 2ww on progesterone are meaningless. Maybe it's just easier for me mentally that way, but it helps me if I just assume that I cannot intuit anything and it's all a blank slate until 12dpo. FWIW I have a really good feeling for you! Sending lots of good thoughts and hopes your way.

 

(BTW, I think my new testing tactic is just to wait until 12dpo. Mostly my reason for testing early is because if I do see a +, then my agony is over. Of course it's about wanting the BFP but honestly, it's also about the misery of living with potentially false hope. I like to be in a state of knowing, even if that knowledge is not what I wanted.)

 

brichole, you are very inspiring in the zen department, you know that, right? I truly think that you will find a way to add to your family. When the desire is so deep and real like that, there is no other way. Of course, we change and maybe you will feel differently in time, but maybe not - and you will find a way! On the subject of birthdays: I don't know if this helps at all but I do think families have different "cultures" around birthdays. In my family growing up birthdays were not a big deal. This bugged me a little growing up and I do try to do more surrounding birthdays as an adult. However they are still not as big a deal to me as they seem to be in the general culture. I wonder if maybe DH's family is like that too? Also, I know I'm a little late on the tea but I just wanted to mention that someone got my mom a gift set like that and we all enjoyed it so much - the tea was so good I think we "fought" (not really) over the last cup!

 

Renavoo, hi! We are having a good weekend, though unfortunately some of our guests couldn't make it to visit us. I saw some old friends which was really nice. Mostly though I am itching to get going with our renovations! Today is finally my day - we agreed Sunday would be devoted to house stuff! How about you? Did you and the babes have a good Thanksgiving?

 

AFM, today is my last day of Clomid. It's a good question what b/w they're doing tomorrow - I'll have to ask. I assumed E2 and LH, but FSH makes sense too. BTW Renavoo I also suffer from being constantly cold and was hoping I might just get a generalized boost of heat from the Clomid - but hot flashes, eek! 


Me + DH + DS ('07) + after a long and bumpy road, thrilled that our twin boys are finally here (DS2 & DS3, '12)

After 17 months of ttc, a "poor egg quality" diagnosis (I just turned 42 yo), 1 miscarriage, a whole lot of femara & ovridel, and 6 IUI's, I got a BFP this morning!  I'm still having a hard time believing it..I wish I had more hpt's, so I could keep checking.  :-)  Today is 13 dpIUI and I used a clear blue easy digital test, which read "pregnant."   I checked over and over just to be sure I wasn't mid-reading it.

I'll go for a blood test tomorrow to confirm -- I'm nervous, excited, and cautiously optimistic.  YAY!

Thank you!  I've tried several new things during the past few months -- maybe one or all helped.  Approximately two months ago, I started going to acupuncture appointments once a week.  This cycle, I had acupuncture 3 hours after the IUI.  On the advice of the acupuncturist, I started a low gluten, low dairy, low sugar diet.  I also ate pineapple and pineapple core starting the day of ovulation/ IUI, for 7 days.  A big thanks to Renavoo for that tip.  It has some protein in it that helps with implantation. 

 

Can't wait to get this test done tomorrow!

Congratulations Mamabird, tha'ts wonderful news!!
 

Cbaa - I'm going with gozal on this one...UGH progesterone! After the mess I had last cycle with testing before the 2ww is over, I'm going to skip it this time and just wait for the blood test results. I know it's going to be incredibly hard, but like you said, seeing a BFN is just too hard, and seeing one during the 2ww isn't entirely conclusive since you can still test positive at your blood test. What an awful thing to make us wait so long to find out!

 

I've only been on one cycle of progesterone, but I'm going to agree with gozal that the symptoms are meaningless. I had every symptom in the book and was even throwing up, and I got a BFN. I'm hoping that it's excellent news that your symptoms are different from last time. That does sound very promising! If you can, I'd still wait the 2w if you can. If you can, try waiting until at least 12dpo. I hope the rest of the time passes quickly for you!

Yay Mamabird! Congratulations! Brichole- I am one of those lucky people who get to have every symptom in the book. LOL. I'm not complaining, because I'm grateful to be PG, but I could definitely do without the dizzy spells and extra cramping. The morning sickness hasn't gotten horrible yet, but it's definitely on the list of symptoms. My bbs, whoa! I had this one before I even got my BFP. I, too, was on progesterone suppositories (still am) and kept saying, could be from those, so as not to get my hopes up.


Mama to my twin butterfly boys, Alan and Bruce, who passed away at 22 weeks gestation (3/24/12): Forever in Our Hearts. Our rainbow baby girl, my little bud of Hope,  joined our butterfly boys and Grandma Jan 1/31/13 at 9 weeks gestation. Love you so much. Next step: triadadopt.jpg
