You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today.  Just wanted to see how you're doing, how things are going with the inlaws.  We just got back from an awful vacation lol.  Went to gulf shores and guess what met us there??  Tropical Depression Lee! UGH!  Rain for 7 days, winds of 60 mph and rain like crazy.  The wind blowing the sand would sting you and a poor 16 yr old was swept away 2 miles from where we were staying.  Just glad to be home!  I hope all is well with you!!  Miss talking to ya. Take Care!!  Big hugs!! :)

Hello my lovely, how are you doing? Have been thinking about you and hoping everything is going well for you. Do you still have your relatives staying with you? I hope they arent driving you crazy. Have you heard any word on when you will be starting again? I still havent heard form the clinic but will give them a week or so and then e-mail to see when they can fit us in. Have been using my CB fertility monitor and for the first time in 6 and a half years of ttc i actually got a positive. I was so excited when i saw it. Well we'll see how it goes, not getting my hopes up but always have a wee glimmer of hope for a natural BFP. Anyway just wanted to let you know i'm thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers. Sending you loads of love and hugs. xxx

Hey there!!  Ugh I hear ya!  Winging it sounds nice.  I'm doing the temps this month, no opk's though. Probably going to stress myself out more lol. I think we glutton for punishment. lol!  After this month though, I'm going to do NADA!!  I'm going to wing it like you!! :0  Oh and also this month with the temping (since they've never let me down) I'm doing it vaginally.  See if that makes a difference.  How ARE you doing?  Everything is good here. Mom is almost back to her old self so that takes some stress off of me, praying that also helps with my LONG cycles. Hope everything is good on your end.  Talk to you soon. Big hugs!! :)

Hi lovely, i know what you mean. This process is a difficult one at times but we always find the strength to go on. I'm doing ok thanks. Have my review next tuesday to discuss my failed cycle. After that we are going to the new clinic for a consult to see what they say and hopefully get the ball rolling.
oooohhhhhhh!!!! A new house, that sounds fab. You definitely need it with your relatives staying. At least you will have more space. So exciting moving into a new place.
Yes huni, it is the clearblue monitor that i use. I used it for months before and never got a positive but think i will just keep trying and you never know. Started staining today so think af isnt too far away. Will start using it in the next day or so hopefully.
Big hugs xxx

thanks hun! yup, had an ultrasound last week and it looked good. doc said i could schedule a second ultrasound through my doc if i was worried (this was at the ER as i was truly freaked by my back pain!) but can't even get in to see my dr until august 10th!! annoying. ;-/  hope this cycle goes well for you; sometimes its good to take a break from temping/tracking etc. sending baby dust your way! hugs!

Hey hun!!  UGH looking like a drawn out cycle again.  I don't know what's up with this, I'm still thinking the stress.  I've been SUPER busy since mom got out of the hospital.  I know AF is there, I've been feeling her for about 3 days now. Ty for asking though! :)  She's finally getting around alot better on her own so it gives me a lil more free time.  How are you doing my dear??  Still taking it easy???  Any plans?  Hubby and I celebrated our 12th anniversary on the 16th. :)  Wow 12 yrs!! :|  lol.  We went camping/canoeing this weekend...then saw Harry Potter yesterday.  Let me know how you're doing..I miss talking to ya!!  I hope all is well!!  Sending you big hugs!!!!!!  Take care, talk to you soon!! :D

Hi lovely, i'm doing good thanks. I have been on a break since my tx failed. Waiting for my af and then i will start with my fertility monitor again. Dont think it is going to make a difference cos i have never got a peak fertility on it before. I think sometimes we all need a break cos this whole process can be really draining. Have just been enjoying time with my hubby. Waiting patiently on my review with consultant to discuss failed fet and then i will be moving clinics and starting again. It just takes so long to get a review appointment (6-12 weeks).
I hope the break helps you unwind a bit huni, we need to remember there are other important things in our lives and also give some time to our relationships not dedicated to ttc. Sending you loads of love. xxx

thanks, i appreciate the good thoughts. :)
my levels turned out to be going up, and the doc said that was a good sign. i'm still getting back pain (centred over the bones in my lower back, the sacral area) but have read online that some women get it due to the hormone relaxin -- your ligaments, etc become more mobile and shift. can cause back pain, even early on. so it might just be a symptom i have to get used to, lol!
have fun with your in-laws, hun. i'm thinking of you. *hugs*

Thank you hun! I'm very happy but of course worried about things going wrong now, lol! I'm trying to relax about it though. Actually went to ER today to have blood work done as I had been having back ache and wanted to make sure my levels were okay. How are you doing? On a break? I found taking a break helped, otherwise it can become frustrating -- and sex shouldn't be like that! Sending baby dust your way -- it will be your turn soon, hun! hugs

Thanks! Yes, I test Friday.  I'm so nervous, excited, and scared all at once.  I'm not going to do a hpt, but rather wait for the beta.  I'd only doubt the results anyway if I poas.  
I'm glad you are looking into your options.  I wish we would have done that sooner.  Best wishes.

Hi huni, i  tested today and it was another negative. Totally gutted and heartbroken. Havent been able to stop the tears, really hoped it would be third time lucky but wasnt meant to be this time. Just have to take some time to get my head round it and then focus on our next treatment. We have no frosties left so it is back to a fresh ICSI cycle, just afraid of getting ohss again. How are you doing huni? Hope things are going well for you. xxx

Woohoo for O and BOOOO for long cycle!  Girl I don't know how you do it!  Oh My gosh those long cycles, UGH!!  I about went nuts wanting my AF already lol.  I knew she was there, I KNEW I wasn't pregnant, just wanted her to stop wasting my time and I tell ya what, it was soo frustrating.  You're right about hard to keep hope.  I'm about done with everything myself.  I know I say that, but gosh it's so hard, so tiresome, so frustrating and hopeless. :(    I'm so glad you're seeing the RE, you'll know what's best for you, when you're ready no matter who you're seeing. :)  I'm always thinking about ya and always wishing you the best!  If you choose to go with IVF I hope it gives you the biggest brightest BFP you've even seen! :D  Take care hun, talk to you soon!! Big hugs and Lots of SSBD!!!

Thank you so much hun!  UGH, What is it with messed up cycles?  I'm relieved to be getting on with a new one finally.  The wait was tearing me up inside because I knew deep down AF was there, just waiting to show.  Off to a new one and I hope it's a good one lol.  I hope you O soon, if not do you plan on going back to RE for answers?  I can't count the times I've said it..and I'll say it again...I just wished things were easier. :(   Thank you again, hang in there, let me know how things are going.  Big hugs!!!

I've been good.  Sorry your last IUI didn't work.  I think you will find IVF to be more worth it in terms of success rates.  Your RE makes all the difference.  We tried our first IVF in Feb and we had an awful result (low # of mature eggs, poor embryo quality, etc.).  We just weren't feeling comfortable with our RE, so we consulted elsewhere.  Boy what a difference! Our cycle this time was 100% different. We had lots of eggs at retrieval and most of them were mature.  Our embryo quality was great for 4 of them.  Such a different vibe from the doctor too. So, I think you are doing a good thing by getting another opinion and seeing what else is out there.  I think in the long run, it will pay off.  Best wishes to you.  Let me know what you decide!

Hi there.  How have you been? I see you had your second IUI the first of May.  How did it turn out? I see you may have had cysts? I had several of them and always went on bcps.  They cleared them up, but I too found it odd to be on bcp when I was trying to get pregnant.  Thing is, for IVF, each time you have to do bcps, so I've gotten used to that fact.  Hope it works out for you either way.

Hey there!!  How have you been doing? :D  When do you see the dr. next??  Same ol stuff with me.  CD 39 today and still no AF.  I have a dr.'s appoinment tomorrow finally.  Hubby kept telling me to make one, even though hpt's say negative.  I've never wanted to see AF so much in my life IF she's going to show.  This is soo frustrating and confusing.  Unfortunately I do'nt get to see MY dr. but there's 3 in the building, so I guess any dr. is better than no dr.  Can't wait to hear from you, take care hun!! Talk to you soon, BIg hugs!! :D

Thank you so much hun!!  Ugh CD 35 and still no sign.  I've been having alot of headaches and bouts of nausea but that's about it.  I also have been having lower back pain but I usually always have that.  You know how bad my AF usually is and it's no where near that, I'm just afraid last months stress has messed up my cycle.  I don't want to test & be disappointed :(.  Big hugs to you and thank you so much!!

Thank you !!  Gosh I don't know what's going on..my longest cycle was 34 days so we'll see.  Today is CD 33 and there's no sign of AF at all.  I'm having a tad of cramping but that went away and some lower back pain but usually I'm in the bed for 3 days before AF shows because of hurting so bad.  Other than that nothing is different.  I HATE the wait!  I really hope she doesnt' show but if she's going to I wished she would already.  Trying sooo hard not to get my hopes up.  Constantly going to the bathroom to see if "she's" here and nothing yet thank goodness.  UGH I'm ready to pull my hair out lol.  Thank you sooo much for your positive notes, I really really appreciate them AND your friendship!!  Big hugs hun!!!!

Thank you so much!  So far so good, today is CD 32.  Either I didn't O from all the stress OR i'm just late. :) Today I had to go work with my dad (so sorry for the TMI) so I used a tampon because I was going to be gone all day and just wanted to prepare myself just in case and when I got home nothing was on it, just a bunch of white, creamy gooey stuff. I HOPE that's a good thing.  I'm just trying not to get my hopes up, so all the waiting this out ***** lol.  I do hope she stays away though.  How are you doing?  I hope you're enjoying your off cycle!!  Thank you again, big hugs!! :D

Hi huni, so sorry to hear your iui didnt work. It is so hard. It is good that you are meeting your RE to discuss the next step. IVF is a scary thing to face but if it brings you that BFP it will all be worth it. I will let you know how i get on with my ET on wednesday. Enjoy this month off and pamper yourself. Let me know how things go when you have your appointment. Sending you big hugs. xx

Hi huni, how are you doing? I havent been on in a while, was very busy cos my brother was very ill and we were running back and forth to the hospital. How is everything going with you? My news is i started meds for FET 4 weeks ago and am due for transfer on wednesday, just hoping and praying my embies survive the thaw. Will catch up properly with you, sending you big hugs and lots of baby dust. xx
