Hi folks, quick update here. I might be out of the game for March already and we'd be out $200 for the follicle check too.

My grandmother died this week and I'll be flying to OH for the memorial the week I would likely O. I suppose the stress of this might have made conception unlikely. I don't know - I'm still processing things.

The very earliest I might ovulate is the day before I fly out. Would it be insane or morbid to do an IUI before getting on the plane? More than likely I'll ovulate on the trip and the question is moot.

I hope all is well on everyone else's journey!

pookafaye-- I think if I were you, I might do an insem before getting on that plane. But then again, that's coming from someone who just did an insem without even a + opk because I was about to get on a plane and didn't want to have NO HOPE for this cycle! (and because we have to rack up 6 clinic assisted IUIs before we can see an RE officially).

Sorry to hear about your grandmother. I hope the memorial goes well.

I don't think it's morbid to try but you're right, the stress may not help.

So sorry to hear about your grandmother pooka. I agree with the other ladies - I'd likely do an insem before leaving. You never know.

As for me, no AF, BFN again this morning. I am thinking that the fever I had when KD was here delayed ovulation, making us miss the egg but also making my period late. I'll update when AF actually shows. Until then, I suppose I am still officially waiting to know.

Pookafaye I'm so sorry to hear about your grandma. I don't think it's too morbid to do the IUI before you leave if you're comfortable with it. Personally, if there was any chance of it working, I'd do it.

Living with my DW, ourcat.gifAstrid, my mom and dad, and their dog and cats, too.  Hoping to start TTC with my OSO as baby-daddy soonish!

Okie dokie!

AF is here. No big surprise. And so today is CD 1.

We're out for March because of travel plans, so I guess we need to be moved to Waiting to be Ready. We should be able to try in April, as our KD thinks he can be away from work when we would need to insem.

I'll be watching the thread and keeping my fingers crossed for all of you!

So sorry Lemurmommies-- but I think April will be a great month to get pregnant!

I've never been so relaxed during a TWW (at least ABOUT the waiting), but it's probably because I am virtually certain that I couldn't have gotten pregnant. I'll test tomorrow, stay on progesterone until Tuesday, and if no BFP by then, I'll go off progesterone, and I usually get my period the next day or two. So I should know what's happening by Wednesday at least.

pookafaye - so sorry about your grandma. I agree with the posters that encourage you to go ahead with an insem if it feels right.

lemurmommies - sorry. If it's not going to be "the" cycle, it shouldn't jerk you around like that

indigo - here's to being out of limbo.

AFU - Still no + opk. We did an insem on Thurs thinking O was right around the corner and also as practice and as a "hooray! free sperm!"

DP - who is usually the squeemish one was totally a trooper about it. Very supportive and mature about it. I on the other hand totally reverted to the second grade. I was a little grossed out and couldn't watch, cracked too many jokes and giggled uncontrollably. I wore a pad for the next two days cause I didn't want sperm to get on my underwear. I don't know why I got so funny about it.

Also - I don't usually have mid-cycle bleeding - but on the day that we did the IUI I had spotting, but it was more than just spotting - there was a little red tissue. Does that mean anything? Nothing? Everything? It could just be a fluke - but I'm worried it could mean bad things for my cycle.

LOL Sounds like you had fun at least!

I'm not sure what to say about the spotting. I never have spotting either but the cycles right after both m/c I had spotting off and on throughout the first half of my cycle. Could the IUI cause spotting? Did you do an IUI at home?

Oops - I meant insem. I just still used to saying IUI - and no - it was actually before the insem. It's probably nothing, but I just wondered if anyone knew something I didn't.
