Rather Queer TTC unrelated, but this is my 1000 post!

Here's some : and and : for everyone in celebration of the fact that I spend far more time on MDC than I should.

lemurmommies, loving wife to ruvalokiteshvara, proud moms to our intact son E (12/06), and mourning the loss of our daughter Noelle (stillborn 12/08).

Just like many of us, we're STILL WAITING! Tomorrow is 14 DPO, and I know most normal people would have a BFP by now if they were pregnant, but I've never gotten one before day 15, so I decided not to try yet. So far so good on the "resisting the urge to POAS". I think it's party because I don't want to see a BFN!

onwards and upwards, please move me to waiting to O.

We're switching donors this month, with an emphasis on good numbers and who the woman on the phone from the bank thought was cute. Does that make us vain?

Smarty and ktcl, I'm crossing my fingers for you!

thanks

snowing here again though, and my mom has decreed that we may not come over to her house today because she has to "get it ready" () for us coming over tonight to have dinner.

It's always in perfect order, so what is she going to do today while we are stuck at home? She told me to relax and take it easy - obviously she's forgotten what it's like to have a 3-year-old

Dunno--I have no experience with monitors and FMU in terms of ovulation.

Good luck today!

Yay and happy birthday for all the pisces (Me too!)!!!
For my birthday, we went to Vegas and got married by Elvis last week (we're already legally married here in Canada, but thought we'd do it for fun...)and then took a helicopter to the Grand Canyon and then went to a Cirque show and then shot some guns (fascination with what you can't get your hands on here in Canuckland) ...

Sticky wishes to everyone!

starling&diesel - I've ALWAYS wanted to have a trashy Vega wedding!! My partner and I had a big family affair before it was legal, a little courthouse wedding after it became legal... but if we get married a THIRD time, we're totally going Vegas!!! Sounds like you had an awesome birthday/wedding!

Thanks for those who added input or responded. I did get a positive OPK yesterday, but today it looked even darker. However, the RE talked me out of doing two (our clinic is not pro doubling up IUIs). She insisted that frozen spermies live for 72 hours. This is contrary to everything I've ever read - but I also don't have a big fancy medical degree. I guess we'll see in a few days.

Can you please move me to waiting to know? Thanks!

JeninMpls... are your lines getting any darker?

Coco - how's the waiting going for you?

Fingers still crossed for all our waiters.

I'd love to know on what she's basing not doing more than one IUI and that spermcicles live for 72 hours. Bother her until she gives you her source. Tell her frog needs to know!
