Thanks - I've missed y'all too!

And, erm, if anyone knows any sperm in Western Mass, I'm ovulating right now. . . kidding, kidding, but I'm thinking about trying to get the ball rolling again in a month or so.

I'm still hoping to see you at that Thing on Saturday, but it's looking less and less likely, but I'm totally on board for The Other Thing in NoHo on Sunday.

Hey all, and welcome back Papa!

Thanks for the new thread.

We'll be testing tomorrow. Katie is feeling skeptical. I don't know how to feel. She's on progesterone so temps aren't really a good indication. They are still nice and high.....ugh, the rollercoaster was so calm for so long. Now it's taking us for one heck of a ride.

will report back tomorrow....

Hi all!

I've been scarce for a while - took a month off ttc and work has been crazy. But I'm back. Had a fabulous iui this afternoon and we feel really good about it Gobs and gobs of EWCM, a smiley face on the pee stick, a smooth iui, and just general good vibes

So please move me to waiting to know!

for me OYYYYY. 2+ years, 13 IUI's, 3 surgeries (Uterine Polyps 2X, ovarian cysts 1X),one shortlisted adoption that fell through, and now we are on IVF round #3 using my eggies- I am the nut who REALLY wants to have a turn at being pregnant:!
I ABSOLUTELY PLAN to be Pregnant THIS time, but if not:

We have one more shot at IVF-most likely using Dp's eggies of power w/me as carrier. and then if that doesn't work the INS has run out and we
re-eveluate having more than one. We were out of pocket for everything until the INS kicked in for surgeries and IVF.

Hey, great to see so many faces!

Mhiccup- Welcome back! Glad the IUI went well. We just switched donors from TSBC, and I'm excited about the new, super-high-sperm-count swimmers that will arrive next week.

Megin & Katie- Oh god, I can barely stand the suspense! I'll be checking in first thing tomorrow...

Mahrens77- Welcome! I hope that BFN turns into a BFP.

Travelgirlz- Fingers crossed for productive IUIs...

Mamimapster- That's a lot of waiting... Sending you lots of positive thoughts, and hopes that this is it for you guys.

FtMPapa- I'm sorry, do you really mean that you're planning to skip out on my 8:30 Saturday morning conference panel? As added incentive (as if the thought of hearing my paper in a not-well-enough-caffeinated daze wasn't adequate), I sense that half of queer academic New England is going to be here this weekend. So if it's some gay spermies you're looking for, this may be the place to be... But if not, I'll see you at the Parenting Meeting in Noho on Sunday.

Alright, I'm off to bed. Happy fertile baby dust to everyone out there!

Angela--I just read your last Oct posts!! I am soo excited about the "trade"!! I feel real positive about this for you

Burts--sorry to be the "no temp-tress" no one of these techniques work for everyone, but something and some wack variation will work for each of us--whatever keeps you sane is the way to go.

Jen, Mah, Travel, and Mami--::

Mhicc--Welcome back!! how is it on the "outside"?

Ftm---Welcome to the Neighborhood (yup small freakin' world--we are neighbors!!)

Meg&Katie--I'm on pins and needles--

as for me I'm sick and it sucks!! I have successful stunted it through immense amounts of herbs, immuno mushrooms and garlic--but I can't get it to leave!!! Its been a burning scratching in my throat and body aches for 2 full days now. This just doesn't seem like good conditions for fertilization!! I'm not even sure if I've O'ed yet??!!! My body has been so thrown of!! I'm sure I have today is CD 16 (I usually 14 or 15) but my CM has been inconclusive, and I never got a "clear" +OPK--mostly because my newage midwife neighbor told me that good hydration is the key to successful conception--Yeah but it waters down my OPK results. Anyway, we did 4 insems this month, but I have very low expectations--I fear that my body is trying so hard to fight this cold and it doesn't have time and or energy to make a baby too?
Here's to hoping I fully recover by Sunday--I don't want to miss meeting ya'll but I don't want too share my germs when I share my love.

Megin - How'd the testing go?

Mhiccup - Welcome back and coming your way!

Mami- like Angela sending lots of positive vibes your way, sounds like it's been a tough ride. : this is the month!

KJM - Hope your feeling better soon but remember that KK also had a cold when she got her BFP!

As for me the B*itch showed up full force early this morning. Jen - please me me to "WAITING TO O"

Round 4, ding.

Negative this morning.

Two more days of testing, and then if still negative, Katie goes off the progesterone. Then we're screwed for a while.

I'm still here, and still waiting to be ready. Well, we're more than ready (we've got the all-clear healthwise, we've abandonned caffeine and alcohol, we've got sperm, we've got the family on board...), it's our RE that we're waiting on. Our consult is scheduled for January 14th, and we can start IUIs the very first cycle after the appointment, which could be as soon as a week after! So, just being very impatient. I'm following all you gals who are actively trying though, and crossing my fingers for all of you!

Burts-- sorry 'bout the bitch, but it sounds like you are well on your way to hormone balancing and RE support for future cycles.

KK--Did you have a cold during your BFP cycle? or was it the cycle before?
As soon as I told DP I was sick she said , "Yeah but KK was sick when she got pregnant!" I had NO idea DP actually listens to my MDC chatter

Megin & Katie--bummer girls, but remember as has been said many times before on this list--It ain't over until AF shows up. I'm sorry your KD lives so far away. Any possibility of a Dec visit? Does he have nay family here? Holidays are a good lure....

BurtsGirl- Big hugs. I'm so sorry. Evil, evil, evil AF... But, like KJM said, I'm feeling confident that a little progesterone supplementation may be all you need.

Megin & Katie- Grrr, stupid BFNs. What dpo are you? I'm so sorry this has been a frustrating process for you. I find it hard enough to get my friend who does my inseminations (and lives five blocks away) in the right place at the right time. I can't imagine working with someone who lives across the country.

Keely- Feel better. That's really funny about your DP- I often wonder how much of my babymaking chatter is actually making it into my GF's head...

Zyla- It's rare that I wish AF upon anyone, but in this case, may she come swiftly. Hugs, and good luck with this next cycle.

All is well with me today. I'm feeling very positive about our new donor, and taking advantage of the opportunity to use the word "motility" in conversation as much as possible. My friends and I have been joking that everyone at the next insemination will get a contact pregnancy from this young man's potent sperm. Anyway, the tank arrives next Thursday, and I'm excited!

Looking forward to seeing some of you on Sunday at the Noho Meetup!

I've been lurking for the last two months. We took a break to switch from frozen to known donor. I thought I'd join in now that I'm in the 2ww.

I'm not feeling very positive about it as my temps are all over the place. My sleep has been somewhat erratic so that could be it but I am beginning to suspect I had an anovulatory cycle. But I had such good fertile signs during insem! Ugh...

Anyway, this is try 6 and our first with our known donor. If I did ovulate then I'm about 4 dpo.

Queer poly family trying since October 2006. Currently using a known donor and no medical interventions.

I'm out this month--no need to move me, as I don't think I ever got moved! I'm feeling great, though, physically, and very even-keeled emotionally--I wish it would happen sooner, but have lots of things to occupy me at the moment.

Burtsgirl--so sorry to hear about your cd1...

Megan and Katie--argh, bfns! I hear you on logistical hassles (I just booked a no-cost plane ticket--rescheduled unused one from last month--that I just found out I won't be using because our kd will be out of town--now just hoping I don't ovulate on the weekend, and can still do IUIs... but we are using up those vials! sigh.)

kjm--I had such a cold for my last BFP; I had to leave a movie halfway through and go crawl into bed--but you know when conception's going to happen, those tiny cells are going to burrow in there, however you're feeling!

Zyla, hope your cycle starts soon!

good luck to everyone else!!

I never stop learning from you ladies!! So Twy could this be why I haven't had any EWCM this month? Or why I consistently got faints on my opks?

huh? maybe this is what is going on? now I will scroogle my night away trying to figure out why this happens????

Megin and Katie, we know how you feel!! Crossing fingers for both of us that we get the magic BFP. Susan was SURE AF was coming this morning, but cramping is gone and no sign of her. We will test again tomorrow.

Lots of luck for everyone else.

Yep. I was sick as a fucking dog for days. I had a dangerously high fever for 2 days, a fever for 5 days, and a flue for over a week. It was awful. But that's when I got my BFP. There's no logic to this process. Or this world for that matter!

I actually did a fair bit of research when I was sick cuz I was so worried, and it turned out that it's really very common to get sick in your first trimester (or your first week in my case!) because your body suppress your immune system a bit so you can accept your baby & the changes being made. So it makes you susceptible, and worse still, it makes it take much longer to get over the damned thing. It was being sick for so much longer than everyone else that made me wonder if I was pregnant, cuz' it's so not like me.

Also, your body keeps looking after the baby unless it's pretty much a life or death situation for the mother. It only sacrifices the baby to save the mother. As long as the mother isn't in any danger the baby will keep getting what it needs. Good baby! Good body!

The fever thing is a problem at certain periods of the pregnancy. Like when the nervous system is developing, but you don't have to worry about that in the first month or two.

So the conclusion - never fear, all is well!

Oh, and re CM, I never got any that matched the fertile description (stretchy). Same like I didn't get any positive OPKs. So I wouldn't worry so much about that. There's so many variables in these bodily processes so you can't take any single sign too seriously.

well wouldn'tcha know it the resort we're at has wifi

imsem went fine, obgyn who did it said CM "couldn't look better", and I had some cramping which felt like ovulation cramping in the car on the drive up here this afternoon. Could have been gas - anything - I'm not going to hold my breath. Just moving forward with life - if it happens, it happens - it will happen when it is meant to. Was pretty funny though that 2 folks in the clinic recognized me from the last go-round.

Funniest was that there were some workers who were mucking around on the roof of the terrace of this clinic which put them essentially right outside of the window of the room I was in. With the blinds up. The ob was mortified and couldn't stop apologizing.

Happy weekend.

Hello all! A happy, fruitful November to everyone!

I'm still technically waiting to know, but I really don't have high hopes for this go-round. I'm either 8 or 9dpo, but I'm pretty sure our timing was way messed up. We went very early, and I think my stress actually delayed ovulation even more! Oh well, the first time is just the practice round right?

AF should be here by Monday, if she's coming, and I've had a few cramps and lower back pain yesterday. I've decided not to test at all unless Tuesday comes and goes with no sign of her. DP isn't quite as patient, however. I swear if she could, she'd start sneaking tests into the john in the hopes that I would pee on them by accident!

Yup Yup, Our first try in May was day 21?? That was what I came up with afer 6 months of temping?? See why I don't temp??
My second attempt (we took June off) was in July and I was going to insem on day 14 and day 16 (I O'd on day 15) until the lovely ladies from this list schooled me otherwise--duh no use in doing it after you O!!
And please keep in mind this was after reading everything I could online as well as 3 books---There is a definite learning curve here
