Monkey- Yup and he's agreed to go back to the clinic at the end of September so I won't have to suffer anymore (assuming things go as well as last time- one baby or 2 separate placentas this time, though please!).


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

Hurty boobs are a good sign Rochelle.  Here's hopin'.  Be sure to update tomorrow!  

 

Ugh Cait - breakouts suck.  Sorry that your body/DH's schedule didn't cooperate.  

 

SKJ - Maybe this month will be it, and the bloodwork won't matter? 

 

Lilac - Good luck for Friday! 

 

Monkey - No such thing as "just" pregnant in my book.  

 

AFM:  The witch is certainly on her way.  The minutest amount of spotting ever this arvo, so I guess tomorrow maybe.  

Wondering about giving up on charting though.  Have a look at this crazy $H!t.  I cannot find a single other chart that has the exact same temperature every single day for a week.  What are the freakin' odds?  Clearly I am not normal.  Still have absolutely no clue about CM either.  

 

On a side note, the Doc told DH he has to eat goji berries to help his spermies.  He hates them and whinged like a little b!tch last night when I made him eat them.  Anyone got any bright ideas to get him to consume them without the whinging?  I'm thinking I might have to chocolate coat them or something!  ROTFLMAO.gif

milk, your link takes me to my FF page.  If you click on "Sharing", then "Setup" under charting Home Page then you can set it up so we can see it.

Sorry to threadcrash...again. milk, can you blend them into smoothies with other yummy berries? And, is your thermometer broken? That could be the culprit...otherwise, I've seen it happen to other people but I don't know why.

Oops!  Okay, have changed the linkie... maybe it will work now?  Here.  

 

Thermometer is brand spanking new, as in, the first temp on that chart is the first time I used it so, like three weeks?  I'll be ticked off if it is stuffed.  

 

ETA: just tested it, and it is definitely working.

And AF showed up bright and early this morning as expected. I'm not going to do Clomid again this month. I just need a break. I want to feel in control of my emotions again, at least for a couple weeks. And I've decided not to take the Lupron like my OB has recommended. So, since we can't afford to do anything else at the moment, we'll just try to figure out how to transition into a non-ttc world while we pursue adoption. We are open to a child/or sibling group of 2, under 8, and we left ourselves  open to a lot of syndromes/disabilities so hopefully things will move fast. We know we're not going to get a baby and we're ok with it, not thrilled, but feeling there must be a reason we are feeling pulled in this direction. I'll still be around I'm sure.

Milk - I had flatlined temps once and got a BFP that cycle (ended in m/c). They weren't as flat as yours for so long, but def. flat. Hmmm. I thought mine was my thermometer, but it was also brand spanking new. One thought. I have a thermometer from Walgreens that has a tendency towards certain temps, like 97.33 and 97.45. It's NEVER given me a number in between those 2. So, maybe your therm really like 37? Also, the walgreens therm beeps when it is done, but I've read to leave it in for 3 mins(!) to get an accurate reading. So, maybe try leaving it in for longer? Who knows.
And, chocolate covered sounds like a yummy way to eat goji berries!

Rochelle hug2.gif I'm so sorry AF found you greensad.gif I'm happy that things are moving on the adoption front. I will be thinking good thoughts for you and hope that your family will be expanding in no time.

AFM - Blaring +OPK this am. The test line showed up instantly. I'm wondering if the OPKs are too sensitive for my LH surge. Yesterday's was positive on the wondfo, but I wasn't sure, so I double checked with the digital and got a smiley face. Today's was so clear on the wondfo. Anyways, I'm thinking I'll O sometime between today and Saturday. We have some "appointments" on the books between now and then orngbiggrin.gif The weird thing this month is that I haven't had much CF at all. I feel wet, but there's not much showing up when I wipe. Been using pre-seed just in case. It's always something! I wish I could just turn my mind off and stop thinking about all the what-ifs.

Hi ladies! I'm back from the honeymoon and am so ready to jump back on the bandwagon. AF showed up right before we left for our trip, and I'm pretty sure I O'd last night, so I'm crossing my fingers for a BFP from this natural cycle. I think it's going to be impossible to catch up on everything I've missed, but I'm going to try stalking the thread to see what has been going on. If you have any big or exciting news, or anything you want to share or re-share at all, please do! I've missed you and hope things are going well for all of you.

Ok it looks like I can't stay away from here! I'm so invested in what is going on with everyone here, it's tough for me to not come back and read this thread so I'm scrapping the idea of a break. Sorry for being such a drama queen last week! I was having a real pity party at the time but things have turned around since :)

 

Milk - does your thermometer only have 1 decimal? Because I notice all the temps on your chart are rounded to the nearest 0.1 degree. That would go a long way to explaining your plateau. Typically a basal thermometer needs to have 2 decimals in order to get a chart that makes sense! If I rounded everything on my chart up to 1 decimal, I'd have a lot of plateaus too. If it bothers you, you should get a different thermometer. Also, your new doctor sounds seriously like the best doctor I've ever heard of. I'm so glad you found one of the few good ones out there!

 

Teresa - I hope you're doing ok.

 

Shesaidboom - welcome back! I want to hear all about your honeymoon! Was it all that you hoped?

 

SKJ - have fun with your "appointments" ;)

 

Rochelle - I totally understand needing a break from Clomid. Clomid was the worst thing that ever happened to me! You really should ask your OB if you can try Femara instead, it's so much easier. Sounds like you really have given yourself a lot of options with the adoption thing. I'm sure you'll end up with a really wonderful child, no matter how it happens.

 

toothfairy - ugh talk about being unlucky with your DH's trips! I know how frustrating it feels to skip month after month. That's part of the reason I was all upset last week... I skipped April for the lap, in May we tried naturally which I didn't have much hope for, I cancelled my IUI in June, and I'm travelling right during my fertile phase in August so I can't do an IUI that month either. July is going to my only real chance in a while!

 

lilac - I really hope you guys manage a succesful donation tomorrow!

 

Bucket - I'm really hoping your sliver of hope is the one that won't have to get dashed.

 

AFM - CD 3. I started Femara yesterday. I'm already feeling Femara-y. It's not really that bad but the first day is always a bit bleh because I still remember what normal feels like. I'll be doing Puregon injections on CD 5 and 7. That's it. Last month I did CD 5-6-7, so hopefully I have less follicles given that I'm taking 1 less dose.

 

I had a baseline ultrasound yesterday and all was good, I had no cysts (which is something I was worried about). Also they did an antral follicle count and there were 20! Which is so much more awesome than the 13 I had last time I did that test (over a year ago). Which led me to a googling frenzy... apparently I have extremely high chance of success for IVF with 20 antral follicles, and I can expect to be fertile for another 10 years. Awesome!

 

My SIL gave birth last weekend at 37.5 weeks. She had such a tiny baby... 4lbs 15oz... cutest little girl ever. My parents are in a frenzy. It's their first grandchild. I've never seen my mom so excited. She's never been excited about grandchildren before. It makes me a bit sad because I'm the eldest in my family and I always thought I'd have the first grandchild. I started TTC before my brother and SIL. Anyways I don't get to meet my niece until August because my family lives halfway across the country.

Ok...so since this morning I've had some good cries and time to think about things and talk them over with DH and whirls we are doing the whole adoption thingbwe may simultaneously ttc. We made an appt with the closest RE. (3hours away) our appt is July 12th at 1pm so we will drive down that morning and probablydrive right back afterwards. I'm suddenly super nervous.

Beta today, negative:(

I knew it was highly unlikely that my first month on clomid would have been successful, especially with my crappy response, but this still f-ing sucks...I have crappy timing the next two months as well, arrrrr

Bucket: I'm so sorry! It truly does suck. Are you planning on staying on Clomid?

 

Rochelle: Sorry about AF :( Three hours away?? UGH!!! That's a real stinker! I think it's great that you are going to TTC while adopting - especially for someone like you and DH who aren't too far down the IF path. You strike me as the kind of person who has tons of love to go around, and I wouldn't be surprised if you ended up with a BFP on your next HPT and your adoption app :)

 

SKJ: Thank you for the whole body cross :) I think your numbers will be fine - plus I think you want them to be representative of the cycle you're actually having - every little change tells your RE something, so I wouldn't worry about it. Yay for O and for those late night/early morning/afternoon delight appointments!!!

 

Lilac: Totally rooting for an awesome sample tomorrow!!! Good luck :)

 

Monkey: I can't believe you're getting so close - eek!

 

Milk: Mmmmmmm..... goji berries! Yum! Sorry DP doesn't like 'em - I'd gladly eat his share though they do make your poo rather pink (sorry, TMI??). I usually soak them for a bit for putting them into anything - they soften up that way. Does he eat oatmeal? The other suggestions (with other berries, in smoothies, etc.) were all great too. Sorry the wicked witch is here, but I'm excited for you to try out all of your new drugs :) Oh, and I say ditch the charting!! I was awful at it and it totally stressed me out so I gave it up and was much happier!

 

shesaidboom: Welcome home!!!! Was it ah-mazing?!?! Details lady! So happy to see your name pop up :)

 

Sourire: I'm glad you're back and hope the week off from the boards gave you a little bit of a mental break. I know what you mean by not being able to stay away. I didn't think I'd be able to keep up with two threads, and while I'm not posting as much over here, I really can't stay away - I just love y'all too much!! I'm keeping everything crossed for your follies to not go crazy this month! I hope this is the right meds combination for you. Do you know when you'll be able to do IVF yet? I don't know what an antral follicle count is, but it sounds awesome in your case. Yippee! Congrats on becoming an aunty - even if it is a little bittersweet. I hope the little pea gains some weight soon!!

 

AFM: Last night, DH and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary. I sure never thought three years ago that we'd be where we are now... things so often don't work out the way you plan though, right? Anywho, a huge thank you to everyone for all the support these past two weeks.... what a freakin' rollercoaster!!! We're not out of the woods yet, but things are looking cautiously optimistic. Ultrasound today did not show anything in the uterus or the tubes which is really neither good nor bad given that my beta isn't really high enough to see something. My beta on the other hand was 405 which is almost an exact doubling from Monday's 136 (should have been 408 if it were exact). So, it now seems like "El Cid" (or "Al Seed" as we call him) is kicking into gear. There's still a question, though of where he is nestled. SO, they wanted me to have an ultrasound on Tuesday and my Dr. was insisting that I come into the clinic for said u/s. Only glitch is that we are going to be in ME for most of this weekend, followed by a one-night stay in Great Barrington on Monday night (we have a favorite little B&B there, and I'm dying to see the owner who is the most lovable woman in the world and who knows all about our struggle!). I've really, really been looking forward to this last little part of our trip, and really didn't want to cancel to come back for a 7.30am ultrasound - know what I mean?? I also didn't like the sound of a ruptured ectopic pregnancy :( So, of course there truly are no REs near that area (thanks for the Albany and Springfield recs!). I asked my nurse if Monday would be OK for the scan and she said yes. We're supposed to leave Rockport, ME on Monday AM to drive down to MA, and we'll have to pass right through Portland. And guess what? I found a clinic in Portland on my first try that will do the u/s for me on Monday!!! My nurse actually called them and filled out some paperwork so that I can go there - she was nervous that they wouldn't see me b/c basically it's going to be their job to rule out an ectopic pregnancy and that's a lot of responsibility. But, they were a-ok with taking me on - yippee!! I just have to deal with insurance tomorrow AM. If that doesn't work, anyone have any idea what an out-of-pocket scan might cost? Ladies, I'm feeling a lot more hopeful today .... it's not over yet, but I feel like we're getting so much closer :) I'll try to update from my phone on Monday.... Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Teresa - So glad to hear that things are looking up!! I haven't been posting but have been reading everyday looking for updates from you. I really want everything to work out for you and am sending all the positive vibes I can muster your way.

 

Milk - I laughed when you called your dp a whiney biatch!!! Just eat the damned berries already! I am also excited for your new doctor, things are looking up for you too!!!!!

 

Shesaidboom - Welcome back, hope your honeymoon was awesome.

 

TF2B and Sourire, sorry about your sucky timing.

 

Hi! to everyone else, I have been reading but not posting. Nothing going on with me, no af or o since my provera induced af. Hot flashes are back, not as intense or frequent as last time but they are back and I am sitting here in a pool of sweat as I type (gross I know). Have my apt next Wednesday to review my blood work, and hsg, I am nervous I am not sure how I will take it if the outcome is premature menopause or ovarian failure - not even sure what the difference is between these two. I have buried my ttc feelings so deep that I honestly have no idea how I will feel if I am told that I can never have another baby. I am just kinda of numb inside when it comes to that I've built myself up quite the protective shield over the past few years.

 

Long weekend here this weekend, I am off camping and am very excited - even though it is calling for rain everyday!!!!!! Happy Canada day fellow Canadians!!!!!!!

smilesandfree - Happy Canada Day from my DH who is Canadian.  

 

teresa, I hope you will find out where "El Cid" is nestled and that he keep growing.

 

Milk, sorry that your AF showed up.  I wonder if your temps through your AF would give you a better representation of when you ovulate or if you do.  I can't remember when exactly you started temping (was it the middle of the cycle?)

 

AFM, last night's stay in a hotel was nice - went swimming in the pool and relaxed.  Had a nice breakfast this morning then DH collected the sample for the RE.  The doctor's office called back and there were 5 motile sperm (up from 1 last SA) and 3 non-motile sperm.  Less overall sperm (only 8 of them over 25 last time).  But having more sperm moving is good.  DH wants to wait another month before he makes another donation to be frozen for our future IVF cycle.

I wouldn't mind taking over for July. I'm sure I will be here a ton anyway with lots of RE-type questions. 

 

Also, holy moly is it a lot of paperwork! I thought adoption paperwork was long but the 16 pages of stuff I had to print to take to our first RE appt is killer!

SimplyRochelle- It's all yours and, yes, I remember that crazy amount of paperwork. I think ours may have been even longer.

Sourire - it really is hard to take a break from this place, isn't it? You ladies are always such a great support to me, I always miss you.
Thank you. The honeymoon was amazing! The not being pregnant thing was hard, and Father's Day was very hard on especially Dh(!!), but the rest was great. We tried so many new things, like snorkelling with sharks! I never thought I'd be saying that one.
I hope this new protocol gives you less follies. Your resuls from the antral follicle count sound wonderful! I'm so glad.
As happy as having a new niece is, I can imagine how hard it must be for you. Big hugs to you. 

 

SimplyRochelle - That sounds like a great decision, and yes, isn't the paperwork intense?

 

BucketOfRain - I'm sorry about the negative. Even if we know it's not likely to be successful, it's still a very hard thing to go to. I'm hoping good things for your next cycle!

 

Teresaresa - Thank you for the welcome back! It was amazing, it really was! I'll post a link to the honeymoon photos at the end of this post so anyone who wants to see can check them out. We tried so many new things, which was a great distraction from the fact that we are not yet pregnant.
Happy Anniversary to you and dh! I love the El Cid nickname! I'm glad the Portland clinic will see you. Cutting your trip short is not fun. I'm crossing my fingers for you and hope everything is good news. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

 

Smilesarefree - thank you! I hope your test brings nothing but good news. I'm crossing my fingers for you. Also, happy Canada Day to you!

 

lilacvioletiris - I'm glad things are going up with dh's sperm! That's good news. I'm also glad you enjoyed your hotel stay. Definitely a well deserved relaxation time. This stuff can get so stressful.

 

cait - thank you! We went to the Florida Keys and the Everglades. It really was amazing!
Distractions definitely are nice, aren't they? Good thoughts for you in your 2ww!

 

 

AFM, nothing new to report. Just waiting for another AF (still a couple weeks away) and seeing where we go from there. We have an appointment with our RE at the end of July. I may try to re-schedule for before AF is to come to see whether we should go straight to IVF. Weight loss has been going pretty well. I've lost 10 pounds since the wedding and am hoping it continues to drop. I tend to lose weight on vacations because I'm a picky eater and we tend to do trips where we're moving around all day long. Hopefully my RE will be pleased when she sees us. If you want to see the honeymoon pictures, you can find them here. HAPPY CANADA DAY to my fellow Canadians. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

sheesaidboom, we were just in the Keys last weekend! Where did you stay? We were on Little Torch Key. Even though the weather was pretty gray, we were glad we didn't get hit with much crazy rain from Debby. Glad you had a great time!


Me (30) and DH (33). I have "Lean" PCOS with IR -- started Metformin 10/2011.  
Finally got our BFP  4-16-12! Welcomed our son into the world naturally on 12-12-12. 6lbs 8 oz, 21.5in at 38+1 weeks.

We were in Tavernier near Key Largo! That's awesome you were there too. We actually visited little torch key! The weather was pretty blah. We were sad we didn't get that beautiful Keys sunset, but you're right, it's good we didn't get hit with Debby!
