Happy Sunday evening~  Ate a lot of Thai green curry this evening, some of the best I've ever had. We went with some friends, a professor and his wife who grew up with missionary parents in Thailand and always has the inside scoop on where the best food is.  Mmmmm!! 

 

 

Lise~ Glad to see you back!!  Yes, it's getting very close for me for sure.  I'm 38 weeks as of yesterday, so it could be anywhere from tonight to a month from now. We shall see...

 

 

 

Gelly~ Your pup pic is so prosh!!!!!  I love it when they crash out like that.  BIG HUGS about the mean girls.  They're so awful, they can make life so difficult. I'm glad you have an awesome new ride, and they're just jellus bitches h8ing.  

 

Isa~ I'm sorry you can't hang your Dalek alphabet, so I'll enjoy this one extra for your. The chaise is magnificent.  It needs reupholstering, but is truly a joy.  Great for napping!    I hope your egg stays put until time.  Everything crossed for you xoxox

 

 

Sara~ HOORAY!!!!!  I'm glad your parents took the news well, and I'm glad your insems went so flawlessly.  I'm sure your parents will be celebrating again just a few weeks from now xoxoxo

 

 

AFM~ Tomorrow, April 4, is my late grandfather's birthday, so I'm totally fine with Aspidistra making it hers too. Just sayin'.

 

 

Luck and love to all!!


Writer girl~notes2.gif~runner girl~jog.gif ~three cats~ cat.gif~ one dog~ dog2.gif~  and the wonderfully red-haired Alice Meredith, born April 8hearts.gif

Welcome, mumquest! Sounds like you've been on this journey for far too long! I hope IVF does the trick for you.

AFM: I have lots to say. PLEASE move me to TWW. I'm slowly counting the days... We insemed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Oh I was a nervous mess about not hitting it and bothered Sara for DAYS about doing everything right and the plans for inseming. 

 

Fingers crossed for you! Sounds like you got the timing right!

 

We're doing well over here :) I'm at 7 or 8 dpo and hoping for at least a 10 or 11 day lp this cycle. I'd like to track for one more cycle and then we're good to go if my lp seems long enough! I'm getting super excited! Two moms in a group of mom/babies I get together with every 2 weeks are pregnant with their 2nd and it's all so exciting :) One is due in May and the other in August. Hard to believe they are so close to #2...the 5 of us met when our little ones were between 3 and 5 months :)
 

 

Going to check out the nursery photos now, Library :) And April 4th sounds like a fine day to be born! Have you decided on a name yet? (I read your post in the other thread..)

Can- Sorry to hear that you got a BFN hug2.gif We hope things work out better next month.

Library- Very nice nursery! Little Aspidistra hearts.gif is going to love it. How are you feeling?

Sara- We were secretly lurking from the shadows sending you lots of fairy dust dust.giffor a successful insem. You definitely had us laughing hard twins.gif about the visit with your parents. We were so glad they took the news about Sara so well and were waiting to hear how they took the news that you were ttc. You haven't told them have you?headscratch.gif So approximately what day are you going to test on? Any symptoms? KMFX fingersx.gif

 

Max- Here's hoping you have lots of thread keepers luck! This is your month. Can you please move us to waiting to O. DP is getting ready for the joyous task of POAS.

 

Updates: AF  has gone for the month joy.gifand DP is waiting to O. Swimmers are ordered and should be delivered Friday. We had our fist appt. with the Doc on Saturday and an ultrasound was ordered for sometime next week. Feeling very tired lately and finding it hard to stay awake. DP says I am getting very meanFIREdevil.gifbut I still feel like myself. Granted I kept falling asleep sleeping.gifin between each one of her sentences on Saturday night. Eventually I told her " I just need to go to sleep"! sleepytime.gif Wasn't trying to be mean I was just tired.

 

dust.gifand goodvibes.gifto all!

Hello everyone! Sorry I have been MIA, but I promise I have been keeping up with all your posts on my iPhone. Just a few personals for now:

Grace - carrot.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifjumpers.gifjoy.gifsticky.gifjoy.gifjumpers.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifcarrot.gif Big congrats to you!

Crystal - I'm so sorry for your loss. hug.gif Stay strong. At least you know you can get pregnant, and I'm sure it will happen again in no time. hug2.gif

Max - This is your month!! fingersx.gif

I will do more personals when I'm in my right mind, but for now just know that I'm thinking of you.

AFM, I was supposed to have my pre-operation appointment with my RE this past Friday, and my laparoscopic surgery to check if my tubes are open was scheduled for this coming Wednesday, but baby making has been put on hold...

Many of you know my father-in-law has been having heart trouble, and he went in for open heart surgery on Tuesday. He had a triple bypass, and the surgeon removed most of a tumor on his heart. Sue and I were up at Duke Medical (about 2.5 hrs from home) with her mom in the waiting room during the 6-hour surgery. We spoke with the surgeon afterward, and he said everything went well, though he was disappointed he could not remove the entire tumor. He had never seen anything like it before and sent it over to pathology to learn more. We saw Dad in the ICU a couple of hours after the surgery. He is 74 years old but a powerful man with a strong personality. It was hard for all of us (Sue and her mom, especially) to see him looking so small with all those tubes and machines around. They were keeping him unconscious but planned to wake him up and take him off the ventilator later that night. I guess they didn't attempt to do so until the next morning, but after the sedation wore off he wouldn't wake up. They sent him for a CT scan, and it showed he had suffered brain damage due to several small strokes, which probably occurred during surgery. The ICU doctor said the situation was "dire", but the surgeon said not to give up hope. Since then there has been very little change. He has a fever, his kidneys aren't working properly, and his heart is in what they call a-fib (irregular beating), which I've learned can cause more strokes. He has opened his eyes for a few minutes at a time over the past couple of days, but he just stares off into space. He does not respond to commands. A few family members have flown in from Texas and California. Sue and I have been alternating between staying at a hotel in Durham and coming home for a night or two.

My FIL moved to the States from Turkey in his late teens. He worked hard and ended up getting a PhD and was an economist for a major corporation for many years. He has so many connections, we sometimes refer to him as "the godfather". We fear with all the brain damage, even if he does wake up, he will never be the same. That has been the hardest part for Sue. That, and knowing he would never want to live this way. What we need right now is a miracle. Please send out positive thoughts, good vibes, and prayers.

morning all!  yawn.  tired.  but thankfully not on-call any more.  :)

 

we had our cd10 follicle scan this morning.  left ovary has a 14mm follicle.  right ovary has 2 at 12mm and 11mm.  dp's lining is a healthy 9mm.  :)  we go back on thursday for another scan and potential trigger shot for an insem on friday.  given follicles grow 1-2mm per day, we should have at least 2 ready with a slight possibility that the 11mm will catch up.  yay!  dp has a call into her acupuncture dr to see how the appts should pan out for this week.  we are hopeful that we will be able to insem before our trip.

Sara—it’s getting there, but I think I’ll be good to wait til tomorrow. It probably is TMI, but honestly, if you hadn’t asked I was going to tell anyway! smile.gif Glad your insems went well—it sounds like you nailed it! And that your parents are excited—wait til they find out that you’re having one, too!

Library—hopefully she’ll take the hint!

Max—fx that everything is perfect for you tomorrow!

Mami—Ha! It’s hard to be anything BUT mean when you’re falling asleep and someone keeps talking at you. smile.gif

AMom—I’m so, so sorry to hear about your FIL. I’ll be praying for your family and that he makes a good recovery.

AFM—just waiting for tonight to give myself the shot! We also have the ‘spooge pills’ all lined up in case we need them (won’t know about that til the 11th, though). I’m feeling a little of the ‘enlarged ovary’ stuff—this morning I stretched and felt something strange down there, so I turned to DP and asked if she’d ever strained an ovary. No, apparently, and don’t ask dumb questions before 7am if you want to keep your head attached. Of course we had a horrific wind storm last night that rattled the windows and forced us to sleep with our pups in bed (how they can take up so much space when they are so small is a mystery) so she wasn’t exactly in the best of moods to begin with. Looking forward to the insems tomorrow and getting this party started!

She's here!
And so are the boys!

Hello ladies~

 

 

AMom~ Sending all my best thoughts in this tough time xoxoxoxoxo

 

 

Max~ So, so hoping your follies cooperate. You've waited long enough!!!

 

Indigo~ Your trip is almost here!!!  I hope the insem is just before, so you can be there to celebrate your bfp!!

 

Mami~ LOL about falling asleep at the end of every sentence!  Good luck catching the egg, this time around.  

 

 

Carmen~ Everything crossed for you. Full of symptoms yet? 

 

 

AFM~ I'm feeling fine, slightly bored, but the house has never been cleaner!!!  So far the curry hasn't worked, nor has Aspidistra taken the hint about sharing a fabulous birthday, but I guess it's only mid-afternoon.  I'm still in a name connundrum, though.  Our favorite name is suddenly very popular, and others on the short list have lost their luster and we just can't decide on anything. I'm trying not to think about it in hopes that I'll be inspired. We'll just have to see what she looks like, I guess!!

amandamom, I'm so sorry to hear about your father in law. It's so hard when things don't go the way you expect them to in situations like that. I hope everything works out for the best hug2.gif

 

great news, indigo! when do you hope to insem?? I (and others, I'm sure) hope you are able to keep us updated while you are away winky.gif

 

afm, I have lots of pre-af feelings today which is odd because I didn't have any last cycle. FF thinks I'm at 9 dpo today but it could be 8 dpo too. I want af to stay away until at least Wednesday so I can be more sure that I had at least a 10 day lp but it doesn't feel like that's going to happen. I'm glad I'm tracking my cycle for a few times before we actually start insem'ing because obviously my body isn't quite up to it yet. I really, really, really hope it's not DD nursing that is causing the short lp greensad.gif

Library: Sara is a good name! May I suggest that?! NO actually I always hated having three other girls in my class/group/whatever with the same name as me. 

 

Gracie: Still feeling good?! 

 

Max: One more day to see all of your hard work pay off!

 

Carmen: Here's hoping AF stays away till at least wednesday! It seems like the inevitable, all telling her not/when to show up, yet she never listens to us. Well this time she sure better! 

 

Mami: I haven't to;ld them and will not tell them I'm trying, I'm just going to tell them when it happens that I'm pregnant. I plan to test on the 18th (but now I'm thinking before then because day 33 for me would be Saturday the 16th... so I dunno now). I started last month on the 15th, so I'm thinking if AF stays away till then, I'm in the clear! I'm REALLY nervous she wont stay away, but like I said, we think we got the timing right! No symptoms really. I'm hyper aware of my uteris right now, as I type I feel pinching low on my left side, but I think a lot of this is in my head. After the first insem, on Thursday, I felt a lot of buzzing and energy and drippyness. Nothing else really. 

 

AmandaMom: Words cannot express how that must feel. I'm so sorry about your FIL! My heart goes out to you and DP and your families. You guys are in my thoughts! Let me know if I can do anything for you ladies!

 

indigo: thumbsup.gif Its going to be great! Fingers crossed for you guys! 

 

Isa: Glad I didn't offen/cross the line! So tomorrow is the day then?! 

 

AFM: I'm thinking about a ticker. I dunno if I can figure it out. We shall see!

Thanks for all the love! Just when I was starting to think I would be able to bounce back into the TTC madness, I get the results from my beta test from Friday, it went from 16 on Wednesdsay to 46 2 days later!!!! So, my body is not taking care of this on its own, and I was only 4w6d when I started bleeding. Anyone have any similarities they could share with me? I had more blood taken today so I'll have the results tomrrow or the next day hopefully. When I went to the OBGYN on Friday she warned me that probably nothing ever grew in my uterus but we would check just to be sure (ER said there was nothing wed) but there was a white patch with a black spot in it, it looked like a normal 5week ultrasound to me but the dr said that it was probably endo tissue or something but it did not look normal.

Library--How popular? I say if it is still your favorite name, go for it anyway. I am not a 'trendy name' person at all (in fact, i already have a list of names that are not popular..and I am hoping won't be)...but if my mind was set on a name I might use it anyway!

Sara--46 million?? Awesome! Do they tell you the count? I really don't like the banks that don't let you know...seems weird to me. I was so afraid that the reason they made the donors "featured" was because they were duds. smile.gif Glad to know that isn't true! They have been great so far--a few emails and talked to a nice guy when I ordered. They still haven't sent me my order confimation...but I am just hoping they forgot. I guess I could call later this week just to make sure everything is okay.

Okay all....Mucinex and pineapple. How much and when? I am going to try BOTH this month (ordering the pineapple from off island tomorrow!)...along with fertility gemstones and crystals. Ha.

lise: on the paper work they send you, it says he was tested and neg for everything and then the date of the 'deposit' and the count of the vial. Did you get IUI or ICI?! They will send you the confirmation of payment and then another confirmation when they ship it with a tracking number. And they sent us 8 syringes, so don't bother purchasing any. If they don't send you enough, I'll send you whatever you need (we're swimming in them now, because we bought some and got more sent. haha!). 

 

oh and I was wrong. I just packed up the tank to send back our last vial and it was 43 mil in each one. Sorry I lied everyone. I feel my nose growing as we speak.

 

Crystal: Hang in there girl!

 

AFM: off to sent up sending our tank back. I'm feeling rather ill (very close to throwing up my yummy dinner). Sara says its maybe a good sign since I almost threw up after I inseminated her both times. We shall see if its good luck for me. I may also just be getting sick.... I know its REALLY early. 

 

Also, if I put in another temp like the one I got this morning, Fertility Friend says I did infact ovulate on saturday!!

AmandaMom- I am so sorry for your FIL ill health. I know how hard that is to go through. I am sending you good, healthy vibes. goodvibes.gif

Indigo- dust.gif Good luck with those growing follicles!

PrettyIsa- I sure hope you didn’t strain your ovary! winky.gif I know it’s hard to keep the pups out of the bed but if you can avoid it please do, they really do take up a lot of space. I regret we ever let our one year old in; she is constantly stealing my covers in the middle of the night.

Library- Maybe it’s time to start marching up and down the street?

Crystal- I’m so sorry there is confusion about what’s going on. I know how frustrating that can be. Please keep us posted!

Lisedea- Ok I missed this thing about mucinex, I’ve been taking it for my cold so maybe it will help? What is the deal? With pineapple it’s the first five days post ovulation and I just ate as much as I could manage (including core!) bigeyes.gif Fresh pineapple juice is good because it gets the goods from the core. It’s supposed to help with implantation but I don’t know if I’ve heard any proof.

SmilingSara- Yay for feeling sick, hope it’s a good sign for you! thumb.gif

AFM-
Getting my first u/s tomorrow and looking forward to seeing some growing follies. DP made acorn squash with tropical fruit sautéed in brandy eat.gif

Max - Yay for the u/s tomorrow!!! Let us know. dust.gif

 

Lisedea - I agree with Max on the pineapple. I 150% believe in it. I did pineapple in Nov & Dec, none in Jan...and it showed. At cd15, my lining was only a 2 in Jan. The other months, it ranged from 8-10. Feb my lining was 9, and this was also the month that I began my BFP journey. It may be a coincidence, but I'm a firm believer. I found that eating the pineapple killed my taste buds! In Feb, I mixed in pineapple juice and forced myself to eat more of the core. Wishing you luck!

 

Gracie - At 11dpo, my beta was only 21, so fingers crossed for a doubling time tomorrow.

 

AFM - I had my first u/s today, and saw 1 little bean resting all comfy in my uterus. My RE said everything looks great, and she has no worries. S/he implanted high in my uterus, which is excellent. I posted a pict of the u/s over on Q&P, if anyone wants to check it out. I have my OB appt on Thurs. Im still considering a midwife, but haven't found one just yet. I'll go in for the appt. on Thurs regardless. We weren't able to see a heartbeat today as I am only 5w3d, but it was still well worth it!

Hello all--I've been lurking for the last few days and am finally ready to be back and catch up on some personals:

Amandamom--I am truly sorry to hear about your FIL. I know it is stressful and difficult and scary and I am sending lots of light and healing his way. grouphug.gif

 

indigo--kmfx that your dp will be ready to O by the time you leave!

 

Sara--I'm glad your parents did so well with the news! What a relief. And it sounds like your timing was spot on!

 

Isa--Sounds like you were gonna trigger tonight. Everything crossed that this is your cycle, my insem buddy!

 

Carmen--Hoping all that preggo baby goodness rubs off on you!

 

Crystal--I hope you're hanging in there and I'll continue to send you good vibes.

 

Lisedea--Hello, nice to meet you! I was wondering what the pineapple juice thing was all about...I know what I'll be drinking tomorrow!

 

Mami--I'll be sending lots of babydust to your DP!

 

2ez--Yeah! I was so excited that you posted a photo of the little bean. Hope you're feeling good and getting lots of rest after your long weekend! And whoa, a 3-hour drive for an ultrasound?! Oh mama, I hope you'll be able to find a good, local queer-friendly midwife!

 

Max--Threadkeepers luck to you this time!

 

Graceie--broc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gif

 

Apologies for not hitting everyone in my personals, but babydust dust.gifto all who need it, and love and light to those who are struggling through this process.

 

AFM--I triggered on late on Saturday night and went in for my insem this morning. DP couldn't be with me because of work, but I felt her good vibes in the room with me. This was the first time I ever used a trigger shot and we are hoping that it corrects the short LP I've been having. That and actually achieving a good pregnancy. I won't be able to POAS until the 18th, so it'll be a long, long tww...

graceie - fx for nice doubling numbers! :)

 

crystal - sorry for such confusion.  :(  please do keep us posted.  sending you more hugs.

 

sara, prettyisa and qmama - sending lots of go-sperm-go vibes to you both!!  hopefully we won't be too far behind y'all.  :)

 

afu - terrible t-storms and wind last night knocked out the power!  it was out until our normal wake-up time at 530am.  dp poas again this morning and even with the estrogen line being lighter still low fertility.  my guess is it will jump to high on thursday.  at least we are moving in the right direction, lol!  dp has an exam today, the first in a series to become a registered architect.

Smiling- In the ttc game we tend to rather believe we are delusional about every symptom in an attempt to keep our sanity. I think it is a good sign that you feel pinching because I felt something similar on my right side. We are definitely rooting for you and KMFX tightly.fingersx.gif

 

Maxk- We are great! It is really hard to jump right back in the saddle but I think that is the best way to go about it. DP and I are each others rock so as long as we can count on one another to get through the hard times of ttc we'll be just fine. I am having few symptoms and DP is gearing up for the great adventure of POAS. Swimmers will be arriving Friday and insem should be Sunday or Monday. We hope all goes well at your ultrasound and that soon you will have your BFP. blowkiss.gif

 

Qmama- Thanks for the dust. I know how agonizing the tww could be and my only advice is take it day by day. We had such a hard time making it through the tww last month that we started POAS 6 DPO.twins.gif Hopefully after the tww good news will be waiting for you. KMFXfingersx.gif

 

Library- Little Aspidistra will have a name soon. Don't stress about it to much. You have the right idea though in waiting to see her. I am sure you and DP will come up with a great name once you hold her. I am also sure it will be a name that will fit her perfectly. Can't wait to see her being that your time is coming quickly. thumbsup.gif

For Mucinex users, don't forget the following. You don't want to have the opposite affect on your cervical mucous.

 

Buy the plain kind of Robitussun with no letters after it. The only active ingredient is guaifenesin, and it contains 100 mg per teaspoon. It is very important to avoid the versions that contain decongestants as those may dry up cervical mucus. Also, there is some conflicting information about whether dextromethorphan, the DM in some cough medicine names, may be linked to birth defects such as neural tube defects and cleft palate.

 

Best of luck.

graceie, looking forward to hearing your next beta!! F/X for great doubling!

 

qmama, woohoo! Time will now start to drag unbearably :P

 

2EZ, congrats once again...I'm glad the u/s looked good :)

 

Afm, AF started this morning which I thought meant that I had a 9 or 10 day lp but it looks like it's an 8 or 9 day lp. My guess is 8. Bummer. I had a 32 day cycle this time which is normal for me so my cycles seem to be normalizing in that respect. I've never had a short lp so I'm not sure what to do about it. I'm quite sure it's DD nursing but again, I don't know what to do about it. *sigh* I guess nursing is causing my O to be delayed or something. We were planning on tracking one more cycle before trying anyway so I guess I'll wait and see. I'm getting a tad anxious.
