Thanks everyone, for your thoughts on flying while pregnant. I am already definitely flying in March, maybe in April, so I'm going to take my time and decide whether the May trip would be worth it. It might start to feel like too much, but I don't have to register for a while. The potential upside is that even though it's for business I think DW would be available to come with me since the semester should be over by then, and it's in a city she really wants to visit. So we'll see. 

 

esenbee -  I would love to hear more about declining the body scanners. I have gone through them before, but I definitely would not want to once pregnant. Is there anything special that you need to do or bring, or do you just tell the TSA guard when you get in line? 

 

2justicemamas & fmorris - Wow, moving at this time of year must be a challenge! Good luck to you, I hope you find exactly what you need.

 

fille - I know I'm a little late to respond, but I wanted to let you know that I read your post a few days ago, and I've been chewing on it in my mind. I totally agree with the others that this woman was out of line. It's as if she was on the right path with being a good sounding board, and then took a hard right turn down the road to judgement - with probably some of her own regrets mixed in with what she projected onto you. Separate from that, you've mentioned a few times your thoughts on money, and I think those are totally valid fears. You are so not alone there. I know a few people who have waited to feel "financially ready" to have kids, and I can't say they are any better or worse off than the people who didn't. I was sort of in that camp while DW was in grad school - I thought that with me working and her in school, it was no time for a baby. Maybe I was right, maybe I was wrong. I don't know. But I can tell you that two years later there are still unanswered questions and potentially scary choices to make around money. I don't think that goes away, for anyone. Remember that article that came out in The Atlantic a while ago, about why women can't have it all? I'll never forget my mother's response - she hated it. She's worked my whole life, and she never expected to "have it all". She says that sacrifice is a natural part of life, and we have to have the courage to make tough choices and manage through the effects of those choices in order to be happy - no one gets a pass, and everyone's sacrifices are different. I think it's awesome that your child will have a mom who has thought out her intentions so thoroughly.
And on another note, thanks for making me laugh with the probability comment. DW enjoyed it too since she teaches statistics. 

merstone - Welcome! wave.gif We're so happy you've joined us. And you are among good company with your frustration - figuring out the timing sucks!  

 

Afm, this has been my easiest TWW because I have convinced myself so well that there's no chance I'm pregnant. I'm 9DPO and already looking forward to January. No potential travel to get in our way, lots of lessons learned from our previous attempts. I feel like January is our month. The only thing I'm not really looking forward to is the potential conversations with our families about me not being pregnant yet when we go to the various Christmas gatherings this week. I don't regret telling those who know, but at the same time I don't really want to talk about it. I just want to enjoy the holidays. Hopefully they will give me some space. And then there's the aunt who doesn't know we're TTC, but always finds a way to shove a baby in my face at family get togethers to remind me that I "need one of these". Ugh... 


My wife (30) and I (32) have been legally married since 2006. We are proud queer mamas to baby W, born 10/10/2013.

Welcome Merstone! wave.gifI hope your ttc #2 process is quick! Interesting to read that you got your first BFP shortly after an HSG. I'm going for an HSG on Monday and I'm hoping it (in addition to finding any blockages, and figuring out an anomaly the my RE found on an ultrasound) clears the path for January with our first IUI. 

 

Hey all to all those in the TWW, any updates? Anybody POAS yet?

 

AFM, like many others on here we are mid-holiday stress (with an HSG thrown in the middle of it) traveling around southern CA and then to Boston Xmas day. As for body scanners, we travel with our dog to the east coast every 6 months and we never go through body scanners because dogs can't go through them. We just carry our lil fur baby and get pat down, its really not all that invasive and doesn't bother me or DP. We also often fly out of or into small regional airports that don't have body scanners, which is nice and so much less stressful. Not the case this time though, only big awful airports for the holidays.

we're getting so close to all the January cycles that are going to start! how is everyone feeling? 

 

Welcome Merstone ! wave.gif I'm in the PNW too. 

 

afm - i'm 11 dpo. i feel like crap and i'm super exhausted. our kiddo is sick, and i am really hoping he hasn't shared the germs with me. this process is so draining and painful, i would hate to be sick on top of it. 

 

anyone besides Scorpio testing yet?

Welcome Merstone!

I am determined to not test until 12/24.
If we have to do the january cycle we'll order on New Years Eve to get the 25% discount our bank currently offers. We would also switch from the donor I liked best (sports student) to my DPs favorite (photographer).

Sphinxy- your Mom sounds like she was a great role model. I really like what she had to say about that article. She seems very level headed, which is a great thing for a mom to be. My Dad is like this too. I'm telling you- he's been such an amazing teacher to me and I know he's so much of the reason I'm as sane as I am today.

Thanks for checking in on us, mrs&mrs. AFM, CD 1 today. It started immediately after acupuncture about 40 minutes ago. DW is in her session now. Good things are on the horizon. My lp is lengthening and the acupuncturist says that my tongue looks better- whatever that means. DW saw a new OBGYN the other day and she was really happy with her. Besides having amazingly soft, cozy robes, she also was patient with DW and gentle and she explained wht she was doing in really understandable terms. She suggested to DW that they "push reset" on Dw's body ( she hasn't had a period since July) by giving her a 10 day dose of estrogen. It's working as far as I can tell! She's been sleeping more an wanting to work out and he's been super emotional in a sweet way. Fingers crossed that she can start trying again soon! If she can then we would go back an forth from month to month until one of us gets pregnant.

DW (39) and I (32) have been married since October 2010. We have been kitty mommies to Georgio cat.gif and Bella cat.gif for a while now, but we're now real mommies to one beautiful little girl babygirl.gif, Olivia Grace, born 11/19/13 at 5:56am.

Welcome.gifmerstone! Thanks for telling us about yourself... FX for you in this TWW!

 

I hope your HSG goes well, twomommyfamily... I know lots of folks have no trouble at all with the procedure, and it really does seem to increases chances of conception in the following months. Mine was awful, unfortunately: Incredibly and unexpectedly painful with cramping for days to follow, and I found out I had a blocked tube, which made me super depressed. However! I don't think my experience was typical! And both my RE and my acupuncturist say that the blocked tube was most likely a false positive caused by my body's reactive cramping, which apparently happens a lot. Good luck.

 

mrsandmrs, I'm sorry that you're feeling so bad... Hand in there! hug2.gif

 

Hurrah for good news, sotohana!

 

All of you TWWers, I'm throwing piles and piles of baby-dust your way... goodvibes.gif

 

AFM: As expected, I started seeing fertile CM yesterday afternoon, the day my clinic closes for the holidays! Arg. So annoying, the timing of things.

 

In other news, happy Solstice! DP and I exchanged gifts last night, and she loves the new kitten. Unfortunately, she was holding said kitten when our dog tried to lick it, which resulted in the kitten getting upset and biting DP's hand very very hard. So this afternoon, DP got a second and a third gift: A tetanus shot and a course of antibiotics! duh.gif

 

I wish you all warmth and light in this new season. stillheart.gif

Tomorrow AF is due (15DPO). Some spotting today, looked different (and I don't normally spot) but we will see. 

Onward! It's not over 'til it's over, right?

scorpioma It's not over 'til it's over! Thinking of you these last few days and fingers crossed.

Who else is ready to test?

afm, trying to see both sides of our family for Christmas for the first (and probably last) time. Spent last night in NH, driving 6.5 hours to PA today, then 1.5 hours back home tonight. But it's worth it to get hugs from all the nieces and nephews. Fingers crossed that my body takes the hint!

My wife (30) and I (32) have been legally married since 2006. We are proud queer mamas to baby W, born 10/10/2013.

I tested negative yesterday. Today I couldn't because we left in the middle of the night to accompany my grandmother to a 5am church service. Usually AF should have come by now, but nothing so far. I even don't feel the usual symptoms anymore, like I did 2 days ago. I blame the progesterone it's supposed to lengthen my LP after all and it succeeded nicely. Tomorrow I'll try another test.

Did you all have a nice Christmas so far?
We had a great meal with my siblings and everybodys family. I had a blast with my nieces and nephews. Santa aka my brother showed up, made the 2 year old cry a bit, but after she calmed down she exchanged her last pacifiers for the presents. The three and one year old were both extremely brave, went right up and hugged Santa and got very nice gifts. They even let me play with their new wooden train set *lol*
