Calling All Women of Strength...
A Strong Woman VS. A Woman Of Strength


A strong woman works out everyday to keep her body in shape…
But a woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape.

A strong woman isn't afraid of anything…
But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear.

A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her…
But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.

A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future…
A woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them.

A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face…
But a woman of strength wears grace.

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey…
But a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong.

mrspace:  Sorry about AF ;(

kmcarino:  For you, I'm happy AF showed! :)  Now you can move forward.  Sounds like an exciting month for you & let's hope it's a lucky one for you & dh!

babynr:  So nice to hear from you & it's exciting to hear that you'll soon be transferring 3 little ones.  Best wishes to you & your dh! :)

dnikki:  Sorry about jury duty.  I know things are probably different in our states, but we have the one day/one trial procedure, so that if you don't get picked today, you'd be done for the year.  I'm sure you've already gone, but my suggestion would have been to mention in the jury room your situation & if they just tell you to discuss it with the judge when/if you get assigned, then ask the judge for a "side bar" and speak to him/her privately.  I can't imagine he/she wouldn't be understanding, just with my experience.  Good luck!!!

Candie & Keyan:  I'm holding out all hope for you two!!!  Fingers are tightly crossed ;-)

Lina:  Thanks for updating our list while I was gone! :)

Joyce:  I'm glad to hear everything's going well, especially between you & your baby's dad :)

Stacey:  No, I didn't chicken out!!!  I actually had to stand up at a microphone in front of everyone (which is totally crazy for me) and my question was:  when will I have my first child...  the answer was in 4 years & it will be a boy!!!  So, my first thought was that because I look young, that was a good guess for her.  We shall see & hopefully I prove her wrong!!!  We had a great time :-)

wishandaprayer:  I'll be thinking of you today!  Best of luck to you!!! :)

Hi ladies! I've had a couple glasses of wine, and am feeling very "chill" at the moment! lol :)

Candie- That's great you're taking a cycle off from temping! I swear, I feel so much less stressed now that I'm not doing it! I always felt that I wasn't stressed while temping, but now I seriously see that during my 2ww I would analyze everything and that would get me anxious/stressed out! I think you'll feel better about it too. I mean, to those who can do temping and not get anxious about their temps during their 2ww, I give them props! :) Good luck on your stress free/temp free cycle! ;)

rachjas- Gosh, I never knew that much was going on with you! You really do have a lot on your mind! I think you do what your heart is telling you to do. If you think you should wait and try other procedures before moving on to ivf, then do it! You know your body better than any doctor, so follow your instinct! I hope they find great results on CD 14 for you! Good luck for this cycle! :)

dnikki- Congrats to your dh for such an improvement! :) I pray this cycle works for you! Good luck! :)

LinaG: Thanks!!! I'm trying to relax as much as possible lol :-)

Jessie: I'm sorry things have been so rough lately, I hope it gets better for you and soon:-) HUGS!!

Rachjas: Thank you!! I will more than likely test before my beta - I usually do lol! I have a bunch of cheapie tests I will use to monitor the hCG shot they gave me. I think the IUI's are more uncomfortable than the HSG (only when I have the trigger lol). The trigger, + O and IUI = some pain for me lol! But IUI's really aren't that bad. I get crampy like when you get an HSG - but in the end, it's all worth it right?! I hope things start going a little better and your mind settles down a little...Just know we are always here no matter what!! ((HUGS))!!!

Luvkayln: An adult beverage sounds good lol...

Well, apparently in the county I live in we are "on call" for jury duty all week. SOOO, guess what? I have to go back for jury duty in the morning....yeah, fun times. NOT! They called in 28 groups for tomorrow - That's a lot of people!! On Monday they called in 11 groups and there was already at least 50 people there! Oh well, I guess I must surrender to the public duties lol...

dnikki:  Hey, at least you didn't have jury duty today!  Perfect timing for your iui! :)  I'm so glad it went well & dh must be proud ;-)  I'll be pulling for you & hoping this is it for you!!!

Keyan:  I'll put you back to CD4 tomorrow.  I realize I looked at Candie's post this morning & thought for some reason it was yours!  That's why I didn't understand why I missed her post.  Anyway, I'll clear it up tomorrow! :)

Candie:  I'm glad the presentation is over & that it went well!  Good for you :)

luvkayln:  Enjoy that buzz! ;-)

rachjas:  I'm sorry, too, for all you're going through!  Gosh, I can't even offer any help with the meds.  I haven't taken them. My RE wants us to go straight to IVF, as well, but we're trying iui without meds while we make our decision & save money, etc.  He doesn't recommend iui for us, but it can't hurt to do what you feel is right in the meantime.  Here's hoping you O from your right side this cycle! Take care :)

Lina:  Thanks for the good luck :)  I'll update my results tomorrow & I will correct your cd as well, sorry! :)

Keyan: I know what you mean.  I think we're all trying for one healthy baby, but we'll be perfectly happy with whatever God has in store for us!

Jessie:  Again, I'm sorry for all you're dealing with, on top of being worried about your testing on Tuesday.  I'll be thinking of you & praying all goes well.  Good luck on Monday, as well!  Be sure to update us with your news & take care of yourself!!!  I'll check out your pic :)

mrspace:  I'll take a look at your journal.  I'm glad to hear you're having your HSG.  That will let you know if your tubes are clear & will hopefully give you hope that all's well. Best wishes to you!!!

Luvkayln - hey, are you still chilling?ll ;o)....you do sound very relax this cycle, taking it eeeeeassssyyyyyyy! .....taht's great!

Candie - Yes, like a brady bunch! but one sounds good too!

Mommyin09 - how are you? how did the u/s go?

LinaG - that's good thought about 3 sibblings, although the truth is we can have 6 or even 10, and they all could decide to move away from each other....

Dnikki - I think I will ask Dh to start vitamin C, it couldn't hurt, right?! Congrats on the results, hopefully the 19 will be here really fast and you will be celebrating the BFP!

Rachjas - I am sorry, I agree w/ luvkayln, you do what you think is right. hopefully you will get good news on CD14.

Leighanne - in just a few days you will be holding in your arms your baby boy!!! How exciting!!! what did the doc say today at your ck up?


slow day here, huh?! hope everyone is doing good!

Hey all :-)
Well, I was selected for the jury today...The trial started already and is suspected to last until Monday or Tuesday. It's kind of interesting, but the defense lawyer is a complete A S S!! Excuse my language, but seriously, there is no need for that lol! I'm still a little crampy, not sure why. I go in tomorrow morning for an u/s to make sure I O'd, which I'm pretty sure I did yesterday. For some reason late last night I had a bout of the scoots (diarrhea TMI sorry...) At least one time and I was fine. Don't know what's up with that. So, IUI yesterday, BD last night (just to be sure lol) and probably BD tonight. Everything shall be covered!!

I will talk to you ladies later tomorrow... Have a good night/day tomorrow!!!

OMG my appt was crazy today.  here is the break down:
So i went in for my regular weekly check up and my blood pressure was in the high 130's so my doctor sent me to L & D to be checked out.  But before that he did an internal and realized that my pelvis is very small and we are probably going to be scheduling a c-section.  i then had an ultrasound to check his position which he is the exact way he is supposed to be.  I got some cute pics of him.

then off to L & D.  i was hooked up to the NST machine and all was well.  my blood pressure stayed high the first few readings but eventually went down.  all my blood work was fine, Strep B was negative and the baby's heart was great.  So i was sent home on bed rest til my appt Monday.

It was just an awful feeling to think all is well and have the doctor turn to you and be like, Oh i'm sending you to the hospital.

Hi, ladies! :)  Today was a busy day!  I had to leave early for my appt, so didn't have time to log on.  Thanks, Luvkayln, for updating us once again!!! I went straight to work from my appt & was busy all day, which is actually nice because the day flies by!  My appt went well.  Thanks, Stacey!  Your prediction was dead on! :)  I have one 15mm follie on my right side, which is just what I wanted to hear :)  My doctor has predicted that I'll O in approx 5 days, based on the size of my follie. So, we'll see just how accurate he is! :)  I will keep testing with opks & go in for iui the day after my positive.  I'm so happy I'm off most of next week, so no stress & whenever the iui is, I'll be relaxed & ready :)

Keyan:  I'll be thinking of you at your appt tomorrow.  Be sure to update us on how it goes.

dnikki:  I hope jury duty is quick & painless for you ;-)  It sounds like you're covering your bases & your u/s tomorrow will confirm that you are officially in the tww!  Best wishes to you & dh!!! :)

leighanne:  Wow, what a day!  I can imagine it was a little scary, thinking all's well & then being rushed off to the hospital.  I'm glad to hear you & Jaedyn are okay.  So, had you already stopped working or are you now officially off?  That's good.  I'm sure it'll be good to relax a bit.  Take care!!!

BabyMamma:  Welcome back :)  How'd the move go?  Don't worry about the bfns just yet.  You're still early.  Hopefully you'll test again in a few days & get your BFP :)

mrspace:  I saw your journal last night & I think it's good that you've been assertive with your doc, trying to get your questions answered.  Now that you've done that, you'll be more comfortable with your decision to move on to someone else.  It's too bad you're so far (in distance) from another ob or an RE, but even getting the HSG is a huge step & maybe you just try on your own a bit afterwards & see what happens before you make the move to an RE.  Good luck on Monday & best wshes!!! :)

Keyan - Yes, one would definitely be fantastic!  :)  You're right, it's definitely been a little slow here lately.  Our internet was down at work all day and it was killing me to not be able to log on and check on you guys.  

luvkayln - I can't believe you are cd15 already.  Sounds like you're enjoying your relaxation.  :)  Some wine sounds really good right now.  I'm with you, I always stress about my temps around O time and during the 2ww.  Even though I don't think I do, if it drops even a little, I get totally freaked out.  

mommyin09 - Hope your u/s went well today!

leighanne - Wow, that would be a little scary to go in for a routine appt and end up in the hospital!  I'm glad to hear everything is OK now.  Take it easy this weekend!  You're almost there.  :)

dnikki - It definitely sounds like you have all of your bases covered.  Hope the rest of your 2ww (and your jury duty) goes by quickly.

rachjas - I am so sorry for everything you are going through.  I really think your thyroid can influence your depression, and ttc and the passing of your mom could certainly affect it too.  Even though your doctor is not optimistic, I think it's important to do what you feel is best for you.  Anything is possible, so it's definitely worth a try.  Don't ever give up hope.

mommyin09 - Looks like we were posting at the same time again!  I am so happy to hear that you have such a great follie!  You must be so excited.  O'ing in about 5 days works out so perfectly for you since you'll be off work.  I hope the relaxation gets you the results you've been praying for!  :)

Well this tww is almost over :) I can't wait to test, but I am so nervous too. I am having some twinges in my left ovary today, so I am hoping that AF isn't coming. To the plus side, bbs are a little more sore (nothing major though) and I am super tired! I am not suppose to test til Monday, but I don't know if I can hold off the temptation...lol well we'll see how that goes!

Good Luck Ladies

Good morning everyone!

I'm cd5 and I'm doing okay.  AF gave me quite a scare this week.  I kept having clots the size of grapefruits and AF was REALLY heavy.  (tmi) I was soaking through a super plus tampon and big pad every half hour.  I told my doctor about it at my appointment and she said it was nothing to worry about. So for 2 days it kept up like that.  Lots of pain and lots of clots and bleeding.  In all honesty it felt VERY similar to some of my previous miscarriages.  But I'm okay now.  It's lightened up a lot and the pain is starting to decrease.  At least I'm having the HSG done on Monday.  From what I read, it also helps to clean you out, so hopefully...if it was a missed m/c ... that will take care of everything.  

I called an RE's office in KC this week.  Just talking to the receptionist made me feel so much better.  She talked to me for almost half an hour!  She said that typically they like their patients to have been ttc for at least a year.  But there are always exceptions, and apparently I'm a DEFINATE exception.

She said that after my HSG I should print off the application and get my records transferred and set up an appointment. She also said that I sound like a poster child for endo, so looks like I will probably be having a Lap done sometime. I want to wait til closer to summer to do it for financial reasons.  I am going to talk to my insurance to see if it's covered or how much we'd have to pay.  I am going to have it done regardless, but we have to think about our finances.

Thank you all for being so supportive.  I know I've been whiney and cranky lately and I'm sorry for that.  I've just been frustrated.  And I get even more frustrated when people on medhelp (not you guys) email me telling me to basically "grow a pair" and get over it.  

mommyin09- I'm so glad that you have such a great follie!  My fingers will DEFINATELY be crossed for you!  

luvkayln- Great job updating everyone.  I hope that you're doing just great!  The glass of wine definately sounds good.  Now that DH and I aren't going on clomid this month, I'm going out tonight for the first time in a while.  My mom, myself, and some of my friends are all going out to the bar.  It's going to be fun.  I'm not going to get sloshed or anything, but it'll be fun.

ad_06- I hope that you get that BFP!  SSBD to you!  My fingers are definately crossed!

candie- I'm so sorry that AF showed :(

dnikki- Sorry you have jury duty hun! I hope that everything goes well and that those little guys stick!  My fingers are crossed!

mrspace:  Sounds like you've got a good plan :)  It's so important to find a doc who really takes time to understand your situation & who cares about you.  Sounds like you found that doc.  Good luck to you!  The HSG will flush out your tubes, not your uterus (that's my understanding, anyway).  If you do have a missed m/c, it would definitely show on the xrays because they show your tubes and your uterus.  I think it's a great idea that you're having it done.  By the way, before my HSG I took 600mg of Ibuprofen.  I did have very minor cramping, but nothing major.  I know we're all different, but it wouldn't hurt to take something beforehand.

pyar:  I've never done IVF, but I'm confused by what you wrote as your protocol.  Are you doing an iui, too?  Maybe I just don't understand.  When will you start your meds?  Good luck with the weight loss!  I know it's tough after all the meds.  I'm a big supporter of the South Beach diet.  It's really healthy, regulates your blood/sugar levels & I lost weight while on it. Anyway, there's my endorsement :)

Shysana:  Sounds like we're pretty close this time.  I am cd13 & expect to get my +opk on cd15, iui on cd16 (or thereabout).  So, I'll be testing all weekend.  Good luck to you!!! I'm glad the higher dose of clomid isn't too hard on you :)

Stacey:  How are you doing?

Keyan:  Best wishes for your appt today!!!  I'll be thinking of you!

Happy Friday friends!

I can't believe this week is finally over! TGIF.  Work got really busy for me this week and I have been so so tired in the afternoons.  I haven't announced at work yet so I am still trying to hide but it's getting harder.  I can't wait until I can just tell the world.  I have my next u/s on Feb 12 so assuming all goes well, I think I will start officially spreading the news at that time. :)  

Mspace - It does sound like you have a good plan.  Good for you.  Mommyin09 is right about the HSG - it is to look at and flush your tubes to ensure there are no blockages and that the eggs are making it to your uterus ok.  I also took xtra strength Advil (ibuprofen) an hour or so before.  Interesting about the endo.  A lap could definitely help you.  So glad to see things are happening for you.

Dnikki - Congrats on a successful IUI.  I find it strange that you said it was so painful!  None of my 3 IUIs were ever painful.  But it sounds like you are covered with the IUI and bding - all the best this cycle!  And sorry about jury duty!

Mommyin09 - Woo hoo for your nice follie!  You always have a good one so it wasn't really that hard to predict :)  I'll keep my day job for now!

Keyan - Good luck today!  Looking forward to your update.

Pyar - I can't compare your protocol to mine because the drugs are different but I have the same question as Mommyin09 - are you doing iui first?  I'm glad you will inquire about the ICSI and hatching.  That should help increase your chances even more for IVF.  Good luck and I'm happy to assist you in any way I can!

Shyshana - Good luck!  Sounds like you are doing a good job with the bding!

Ad_06 - Good luck to you!!!  I hope you get your BFP!  

Luvkayln - You did a great job updating for Mommyin09!  Thank you.  Wow...time is flying.  I can't believe you are CD16 already!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Leighanne - So glad all is ok with you and little Jaedyn.  Good luck on working until the 18th...that is less than 2 weeks!  I can't believe you are so close.  You must be so excited.

Candie - You must be glad it is the weekend too!  You have had quite a week.  I hope you are able to relax and spend some nice time with dh and your fur baby.  That's exactly what I want to do.

Pyar - No worries!! :)  So many acronyms it's easy to get mixed up!  I'm glad you are doing IVF!  Do you have an estimated retrieval and transfer date?

I just wanted to give an update on my appt today.  Since it is only stim day4, there isn't much to tell with the u/s since there are a lot of follies but some will not grow and some will.  There are approx. 30 with the biggest one at 10.  got my estrogen level and it is 532!!!  I am very happy with this number:)  It is more than double what it was at this pont last cycle and that is what we are striving for.  Due to the high estrogen level this early, I have to go back in on Sunday morning so I'll up date you after the appt.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Good luck to those of you who are testing over the weekend!

Hey everyone! Well, the trial went through today, and we meet again on Tuesday and hopefully we can deliberate on Wednesday...
I went to the RE's first thing this morning, he did an u/s and it showed at least one of my follies ruptured. The cyst from it is 42! No wonder my left side is tender. He could only see that one, but I've always had both follies rupture... He said that DH's count had 99% motility...It was reassuring to hear him say it again. I start the dreaded progesterone tonight, 2 100mg suppositories, as always. Ick. They are so gross lol! And we did not bd last night, we were  both utterly exhausted.

Stacey: Usually when I have 2 IUI's done in a cycle, the first one isn't bad b/c it's usually right before I O. But when the IUI is done basically when I am O'ing, it's pretty uncomfortable. It could be due to the endo and pcos...I'm not sure but it's a possibility.

Mommyin09: Congrats on the follie!!!

Leighanne: Sorry your appt was stressful. It sounds like everything is okay now, which is good. Just keep taking it easy and get plenty of rest...you only have a couple of weeks :-)

Candie: Thanks!!! How are you doing?

Ad: Good luck with the testing! Let us know when you do!!!

Pyar: Good luck with IVF!! Is there a date (I might have missed it, sorry)?

Mrspace: I'm glad your are feeling a bit better and the bleeding has lightened up. It's definately something to be concerned about. It feels wierd not talking to you all the time lol! Darn jury duty!!

Km: WOW!! 30 follies lol :-) and it looks like your levels are good! Good luck with it all!!

kmcarino- thats great that your # is good.

stacey- you are getting close to entering your 2nd trimester.  any new symtpoms?  around 8 weeks i started having severe night sickness til about week 14.  then from week 14 til mid 20's it was great.  now i am so slow.  yeah only like 2 1/2 more weeks til my due date.  they think i will need a c-section so i might know the exact date of when he will be here soon.

Leighanne - Very interesting that you say that.  Just this week I have been getting headaches and nausea at night.  It starts between 8 and 9 o'clock.  I have not vomited once yet (knock on wood!) but my evenings have become the time of day were I feel the worst. I am just soooo excited to finish the first trimester!  2 more weeks...yippee!  If they schedule a c-section for you it will probably be a week or so earlier than your due date right?  Little Jaedyn is going to be here before you know it!!  Is your dh or someone going to be with you for the first week or two?  You will probably need lots of help if you get a c-section.  Good luck with the bedrest!

stacey- i am so lucky because i will have my fiance and mother with me for the first couple weeks.  with all the craziness in the economy right now, they are both alid off.  me and my fiance started our own little construction buisness so even though he collects unemployment right now, we are getting extra money and at any time he can put jobs on hold and be with me, so it is good because if i need the c-section i will need lots of help.  yeah right aroudn week 8 craziness started. i thought i would be lucky with no symptoms sinc ei lasted til 8 weeks and then it all hit me every night but it goes by quick and before you know it, you will be 20 weeks along with a baby bump.

i go back to the doctors on monday and hopefully i can get them to give me a c-section date and that my BP is normal so i do not need to be hooked up to tons of machines again in the hospital. it was kind of scary.

the bad part is the only doctor/midwife that could see my monday is the one who was so rude to me my first miscarriage when we found out there was no heartbeat during an ulttrasound.  she literally walked into the room and said, "well sorry  but there's no heart beat and you have 2 choices."  I had to tell her to slow down and explain the first part of her sentence.  so it is nerve wracking to see her but as i am telling myself, its not about me, its about jaedyn right now,

leighanne:  I'm sorry your mom & fiance got laid off, but I'm glad you'll have so much support when Jaedyn arrives ;)  What a pain in the butt that nurse is.  I can't even imagine, but you're right.  It's about Jaedyn now.  Take care!!!

dnikki:  I was gonna mention that maybe you were O'ing right around the time of iui & that caused the pain 'cause like Stacey, I haven't had pain with my iui's either.  It makes sense that it was from O'ing & now you mention the cyst!  Ouch!  Hope you're doing better & the trial is over quickly!

kmcarino:  I'm so happy to hear your estrogen level is just where you want it!  I remember how stressful that was last cycle.  Wow, 30 follies!  That's great.  I hope your appt tomorrow goes just as well!!! :)

BabyMamma:  How are you doing?  Will you test again soon?  SSBD!!!

So, I'm expecting my +opk tomorrow or Monday & will go in for iui the following day.  I'm off work til next Friday, so the timing is just perfect!  I feel so relaxed this cycle.  I can't explain it, but it feels great! :)  I think I was so focused on that Christmas BFP for so long, that when I got my negative beta on 12/21, I was crushed.  And now, I don't have that urgency.  I just feel like it'll happen when it's time :)  Have a wonderful weekend, ladies!!!

mommyin09- That's awesome you should be getting your +ve opk tomorrow or Monday! Wow, your iui is just a few days away! How exciting!! :) That's awesome you're taking this cycle stress free. It just feels great, doesn't it? :) I know, now that you're over the initial shock of not getting your +ve by Christmas, you just have the whole year to look forward to b/c you know it will happen for you this year! I just went and saw Kayln, the weather is just awesome here! Windy, but finally can wear flip-flops! :) Hope you and dh are having a wonderful weekend, and I hope you have a nice, relaxing week off from work! It will be perfect timing with your iui! Then you can spend the day relaxing afterwords so those little swimmers can do their job! :) What do you plan on doing for the rest of the week off?

kmcarino- Congrats on your E2 levels being so great! :) I know you're so relieved and getting more and more excited for this cycle! I have a good feeling! ;) Good luck at your u/s tomorrow! Grow, follies grow!!!

dnikki- Ouch, a cyst at 42! Wow! I had 2 cysts on my right side, and he measured them together and it was 72! I think they're still there though, b/c both sides have been hurting and my RE said it may take me longer to ovulate this cycle since there were 2 of them. That's great you ovulated 1 egg though, and dh's motility is awesome so you have a great chance! :) Good luck!!

ad_06- Sorry about the bfn and that su cks that you feel like Af is on her way! :( Hopefully not, and you have a BFSuprise coming your way instead! Good luck!!

Candie- Hope you are enjoying your stress free cycle! :) Good luck!!

I hope you ladies are having a good weekend :-) I guess I just want to clarify about the cyst. I shouldn't have called it a cyst - it's not from the clomid but from O'ing - I think it's called a corpus luteum (sp?), so that is what is so freakin big lol! I'm guessing it's a good thing...?

Mommyin09: I hope you get your +OPK this weekend!!!

Just wanted to give an update and check on everyone. I am 5dp5det. Well, I feel absolutely normal, and I am trying to stay away from the HPT! I will let everyone know when I go running for the medicine cabinet to grab that stick....

Any words of wisdom for me?

ad_06 sorry about the bfn-lets not give up yet though!

Mommyin09-get to work this weekend if you get the +, (or if not lol)

My appt. went well.  I am so excited to report that my estrogen is 1224 which is very high for this early on.  I lowered the dosage of the Gonal starting today so hopefully the level will nto get too crazy.  They could not see the follicles well enough to measur emost of them due to bowel issues.  Anyway, they did measure a 15 and two 12s but there are a ton of follicles and the estrogen level proves that so I am ecstatic!!  I go in again on Tuesday.  I hope the follicles do not get too big.  It looks as though the IUI may fall on my birthday, this coming Sunday the 15th!  That would be awesome to conceive that day!  My 6th wedding anniversary is Feb. 14th too.

Good luck to everyone!!

I'm so happy your appt went so well & your estrogen level is where it should be :)  If your follies are around 15mm, they'll be nice & big by the time your iui comes around & how cool to do it on your b-day :)  You will definitely have an exciting weekend!!!

mommyin09-I bet you get your +ve opk tonight or tomorrow morning! Today is CD 15 and remember last month it did this too, and we thought your "cycle" was broken b/c you hadn't gotten your +ve opk yet, and then you did that night. So I really think it'll be tonight! :) So I honestly think I ovulated last night! :) My left ovary was KILLING me, literally! It was throbbing it hurt so bad, and it only lasted for an hour or so and then it was gone. Today I haven't felt anything on either side, so I think my cysts are gone too! :) Yay!! :) Plus, I started getting watery/slippery cm yesterday, and last night through today it  has been VERY slippery, and I was nauseated today. I always get nauseated when I ovulate for some reason... ( My RE said it's normal and it's the change in hormones that causes it. Interesting fact... ) It's funny how well I know my body these days! :) I'm glad you're feeling so relaxed this time around! It's good not to stress about it, b/c there's nothing we can do about it anyways and if the timing is right, it will happen. Hopefully you can do your iui, but that's cool you'll be ok either way! :) I'll be praying your cycle holds true, and you get your +ve opk tonight and you'll be ovulating in the next day or two! Good luck!!

kmcarino- Great results!! Congrats!! :) This cycle is going so much better for you, that's awesome! I hope it ends in a BFP for you!! Good luck! :)

mrspace- Good luck with your  hsg tomorrow! Let us know how it goes! :)

wishandaprayer- I can only imagine how anxious you are to test right now! Lord knows I wouldn't be able to stand it, especially if the tests are already in my house! I don't want you to test too early and get a false -ve, so just try to hold off for a few more days and then maybe start testing? I'm not sure after an ivf when you should start testing, so I'm  not much help but I do wish you all the best of luck!! :)

dnikki- Yes, the corpus luteum is just the "shell" that holds the egg and when it doesn't collapse so the egg can release, they call it a cyst but it will definately go away this month. The clomid recruts all the follies, and since you had 2 this time, but only 1 released, it's just there waiting to rupture and it probably will soon since it was so big at your u/s.This was my second cycle with a cyst, but they're always gone when af arrives and I have my baseline u/s, so that's good! :)

That's funny your messages keep getting posted multiple times.  I can't explain that one! :)  So, yes, I got my +opk today! :)  I tested first thing in the morning & it was negative, then at 1:30 it was positive.  dh HAS to be at work at 5:00 in the morning & will be super busy all day.  That's true for Tuesday as well. I'm guessing I'll O late Monday afternoon/early evening.  So, because your egg will survive up to 24 hours after O, I'm going to call my RE tomorrow & see what the latest time is that we could go in on Tuesday.  If it doesn't work out, it's totally okay!  We're bd'ing & covering our bases & I just really don't feel like stressing about it or stressing dh.  I know how busy the next two days are for him.  I'll also have tomorrow off to relax! :)  And I'm planning to cancel my other days off.  I'm already off on Thurs anyway.  It's a holiday for us.  That's great that you think you O'd yesterday!  We're gonna be close again this time around ;)  I get nauseous too just before I O & I learned that you get a surge of estrogen before your lh surge & I already know I get nauseous with too much estrogen.  That's how I first pinpointed when I was O'ing :)  I know, we know waaay too much about our bodies, huh!?  Okay, have a great night.  I'll keep you posted!

mrspace:  Best wishes for your HSG tomorrow!!!

Jessie:  How exciting that you may know the sex of your baby tomorrow!  Please keep us posted :)

Stacey: OMG almost done w/ the first trimester! Congrats..how fast!!

Mommyin09: COngrats on the +opk! and your relaxing week off work!

Leighanne: that's good you will have help after the birth! Sorry you have to go see that doc today, try to keep your mind focus on Jayden, I can understand why you wouldn't want to see that doc again. I wouldn't either.  

ShySana: keep up with BDing! Hopefully you will be Oing soon!

Luvkayln: Congrats on Oing! ..Welcome to the 2ww!

So my appt on Friday went kind of good....I didn't know I was suppose to get an appt at the hospital for the admission... ;o(.....SO although I have the GO for the LAP I have to go Tomorrow AGAIN for information and instructions and also to speak to the anesthesiologist. I have to have a liquid diet tomorrow right after breakfast, my doc wants me to have clean intestines, which they are cause I got sick this weekend, fever and all, I feel low on energy, haven't really been able to eat much, but I feel much better today than what I did yesterday. Looking foward to being back home on wednesday after the LAP is done...that's my focus now! lol

OK, hopefully this post will only come up ONCE! lol :)

Mommyin09- CONGRATS again on getting your +ve opk! I can really tell you are so not stressed this time around! That's great! :) If iui is meant for you and dh this month, it will happen but if not, you sound totally cool with it! You're right, you're basis will be covered either way! Ok, now I'm jealous! You get the whole week off? No fair! ;) Enjoy it, you deserve it!

Candie- How are you doing? Hope you had a great weekend! :)

Stacey- Wow, time is just flying by! Already almost out of your first trimester! :) Enjoy it though, b/c you'll miss these moments when they're gone! :)

Shysana- Of course we care! :) That's great your cm is in the process of changes, and that you can feel your ovaries at work! Are you being monitered with u/s since you're taking clomid, or just taking opk's and bd'ing when you get your +ve? Hopefully that 1 opk you have left will give you your +ve! Good luck! :)

Keyan- Thanks! I'm not 100% sure, but I'm pretty sure I did ovulate. I'll just keep paying attention to my CM and just keep bd'ing. I'm not that concerned with it, just b/c we'll be doing the follistim next month again, but I love this "care-free" attitude I have right now about ttc. We're trying, but not trying ya know? If I can just keep that up, even during my medicated cycles, I think it will help and make life easier! :) I'm sorry you weren't feeling good over the weekend, but that's great you're feeling better today! Yes, just focus on wednesday when you're at home relaxing after this whole procedure! It'll be over before you know it!

mrspace- thinking of you today!

another BFN @ 14 dpiui! My LP is usuallly around 16 days, so I am not going to test anymore till after then if AF doesn't show. Still holding on to some hope, but really don't think it worked this cycle :(

Hhmm... now my ovaries are sore again so maybe I haven't ovulated like I thought! lol Oh well, like I said, I'm not that concerned with it but I will watch my CM and just continue bd'ing while I have fertile CM. Just wanted to let you all know! :) And did you see... it only posted my message once! lol :) I'll check in later!

Good morning everyone!  Hope you had a good weekend.  Ours was nice.  DH took me shopping and to dinner on Saturday, so that was really nice.  He didn't even complain when I tried on clothes!  :)  I don't know how I got so lucky.  Just relaxed yesterday with him and the dog.  Now it's back to work.  :(


mommyin09 - Congrats on the +OPK!  How exciting!  I hope everything works out for your IUI, but like you said, what will be will be, so there's no sense in getting stressed about it.  Enjoy your days off and I'll be praying that everything is timed perfectly for you this week!  

Keyan - So glad to hear that everything is progressing for your lap.  I'm so sorry you were sick this weekend.  I hope you are feeling better and are able to get some rest.  Are you working this week?  Let's pray that Wednesday gets here fast and that the lap is successful!  :)

luvkayln - Hope you are O'ing (or will soon).  Keep up the bd and I'm sure you'll be fine.  :)  I'm glad to hear you are still enjoying the relaxation.  That's so nice that you got to spend some time with Kayln.  I'm sure that helped contribute to your peaceful state of mind.  We're actually having good weather here too.  The sun is out today!  I thought I'd never see it again LOL.  We've had so much snow and such cold weather, but it's going to be in the 40's and 50's all week.  I think the snow will be back next week, so I'm going to enjoy it while I can!

Stacey - Aside from the nausea, I'm so happy to hear you are feeling so good!  I bet it would be getting hard to hide it at work.  Not only because your body is changing, but also because you probably can't stop smiling!  :)  Good luck at your u/s this week.  I can't wait to hear how it goes.  

Shysana - Yes, we care!  That's wonderful that you are having fertile CM this time around.  There have been times when I didn't have it a lot, so it's always so exciting to see!  Sounds like the Clomid is working.  Hope you O soon and good luck this cycle!

ad_06 - Sorry about the BFN, but you're right, it may still be too early to test.  Hopefully you can hold out a few more days and get a better result next time!!

kmcarino - Your follies sound like they are progressing nicely.  That is so exciting that you'll be having your IUI around both your b-day and your anniversary.  I hope that brings you a lot of luck and you end up having even more reason to celebrate!

wishandaprayer - I completely understand why you are so anxious.  After going through IVF, I can only imagine how badly you want it to work and how tempting it is to test.  Hope you can hold out a little longer and that you get your BFP!

ad_06- so sorry about the bfn :( but you're right, it may be too early! I really hope it is! If AF isn't due for a couple days, I agree that you should wait it out and see if it  comes, and if not, then test again. Stay positive, and Good luck!!

Candie- Sounds like you had a nice weekend! :) How sweet of dh to take you shopping and even let you try on clothes! :) The weather is great here again today. I'm not sure what it's supposed to be like for the rest of the week, but I really think that the nice weather makes you feel better and that is definately helping me stay relaxed. And the fact that I'm able to visit Kayln more during nice weather definately is helping, you're right! :) You better enjoy this week, that su cks that the **** py weather is just right around the corner for you! Hope you're having a good day at work!
