Ahhhhhh, I'm so sorry ;-/  AF *****!  The ONLY good thing about her is that when she comes, that means you get a whole new fresh start, w/a new lil eggies in your follies waiting to GROW ;)
Go shopping, & make some warm chewy CHOCOLATE brownies ;)  Those 2 things make me feel better!

Love the "egg" pun - that was a good one!! I am hugging you from all the way over here!! :)

I am on progesterone so I have been a zombie lately. I am sitting here (my kids are taking a test) and I am BARELY awake! I don't remember any symptoms form almost two years ago except losing my mind the night before the BFP (faint) and screaming at DH and losing my "shhhhhiiiiittttt"

Hi there.  Just thought Id check in with you.  You are a much stronger woman than I am.  I caved and did a test yesterday and it was a faint positive and this morning it was BFN.  Apparently I am a very slow learner.   Sigh...

I wish you much better luck than I have!

Cramping is a super good sign. I dont have a single symptom. Last nite I woke with stabbing pains in my left ovary area, but who knows what that means- probly nothing.  last month I had major cramping at 11dpo. After the fiasco last month I hate to read too much into anything. Last month AF was 2 days late. Not likely I will be able to hold out to 14+dpo to test, but this time i will be way more cautious.
A fair sounds fun! We dont have any weekend plans. DH has been really sick & I've now caught his cold, so I think we'll just be lying low. Normally I go to gym classes on the weekend by my acupuncturist told me not to do anything with jumping in luteal phase,so that kindof limits what I can do!  It almost sounds like permission to lie on the couch &eat bon bons, doesnt it!?

Hello!  Why would you be embarassed to say you went to a cousellor?  Heck, if you know that you need help & you seek it out, you arent crazy, or weak or anything bad - youre just human & there's no shame in that!
I tried your meditation technique & it works well.  Its just a little twist on the old "in with the good, out with the bad."  I like it - it's simple.  Each time I do it, i push negativity out of my body on each exhalation, starting at my feet, working up to my knees, thighs, etc.  Thanks a bunch!  You saved me the cost of a book or a video!
How have you been finding it since you've been off work? Are things ok?  Keeping busy? I only got my half of the closet cleaned this past weekend. DH came home so I'm gonna have to wait till he goes out of town to go through his stuff!

Good morning.  LOL - I can imagine that meditating with an 11 month old around might be a bit of a challenge.  Can i ask, where did you learn to meditate?  I dont even know where to begin - a book?  Video?  a class?  

This may sound dumb, but why do they do a trigger shot?  Is it possible to have a mature follicle and then the egg never releases?  Is that just to make sure that they ALL release?  My fingers are crossed that your DH's swimmers find at least ONE of those eggs, and that it sticks.  How many eggs had you released last month?  

Speaking of cleaning closets... DH just asked if i would mind if he went hunting this weekend and i jumped at the chance!  I'm gonna clean HIS closet and throw out some of his junk.  That guy will not part with ANYTHING!

Thanks so much for the note and the baby dust! I am trying so hard to stay positive..according to my nurse she seems hopefully..today wouldve technically been my 1st beta had I not tested at home before my missed period and she said my number looks ok...its so early to tell..I just really want to know if this baby is in my uterus or not! Im so impatient I know...LOL..How are you doing?

Never had a trigger shot, so I dont know how they work. I know you had 4 mature follicles. Does the trigger just force the eggs to release?  On what CD do you take the trigger? 36 hour warning would be great! I have been told by 3 docs to only BD every second day, so there must be something to it,and only one of them knew the results of the S/A.  

I truly cant believe there are so many people in the world today based on how hard it has been for us to conceive.  It seems to me that often the people who shouldnt be having babies are the ones that pop them out left right & centre, & I find that very frustrating.  

This TWW is gonna be pretty hard for you.  Time to find a hobby, other than obsessing about TTC!  LOL!  I'm gonna try to stay away from the computer & clean out my closets!

My doctor suggested that we BD at night time so that gravity is not working against DH's spermies, & that the semen can totally liquefy before gravity pulls it down (and out).  We have started to bd right before bed & then I dont need to get up till a.m.  Last month we did prop pillows under my hips afterwards.  I figure that it isnt going to make matters worse!  I was finding that if i got up after bd then the stuff wd come out of me if i coughed or used the loo!  My friend SWEARS that pillows were the reason she was finally able to conceive after 3 years of tyring!

Good morning!  Good luck to you & your DH too - let's pray that our BFPs stick this month.  Last month's occurrence was NOT an experience that I would like to repeat.  Yikes - 4 days in a row, you guys must be tired!  LOL!  The doc told us to do it only every second day so the sperm could build up - not sure if that means DH's counts are on the low side, or if it means anything at all.  DH works out of town so the best we could do this month is BD on Sunday and then Yesterday.  He headed back out this morning.  Last month we only BD'd once due to my laparoscopy, but the timing appeared to be right.  So we did CD13 again this month.  Fingers crossed for us both!

Just wanted to let you know that I had a mid cycle U/S to see the effects of the Femara.  I had one mature foll on each ovary but the BEST part is that my lining was actually a little thicker than usual. Got my LH surge today so I guess its time to call DH in from out of town and put the man to work!  

Fingers crossed for this month for BOTH of us!

hey you!  How was your HSG yesterday?  I just saw your post.  Hopefully it went smoothly and you didn't feel too much pain?  What did your RE find?  All is good here-feeling pretty good for the most part.  I can't complain!  Hope all is well with you too.  xoxo

Glad the HSG went well.  You are all cleaned out and ready to go!

They dont sell mucinex pills here otherwise i would be all over them!  I have taken robitussin in the past and it really does work.  It is not an old wives tale.  I dont have much CM of my own so I use Preseed as well as the cough syrup.  Looks like we will be on the same protocol this month, my friend.  I had the lap and hsg last month.  So let's keep our fingers crossed that we get BFP's that STICK this month!  I'm hoping the baby aspirin will help with that.  It sure isnt gonna hurt!

Let me know how your mid cycle ultrasound goes!

I was looking for a post on your HSG today!  How did it go?  Is everything looking good?  Did you take anything before, or did you tough it out!?!?!  I'm starting to get nervous for mine!

Glad to hear it went well and that the pain wasn't too bad. Thanks for the nice things you said about my photos. I do it mostly for fun, but I have sold a couple of prints. I have virtually no technical knowledge, but I think I have a pretty good eye. Knitting has been my passion for the last 2 years. If you want to learn, I recommend finding a yarn shop nearby and taking a beginners course. You'll meet lots of other knitters there and can find a knitting circle that way, too.

Thank you. It was a tough weekend, but everyone seems to be doing better than expected. I'm sorry to hear about your twin cousins. They were all too young. I just saw GiGi's note. I hope your hsg went well :0)

My U/S is next Tues.  Shd be interesting - i didnt respond well to clomid, so hopefully i get more than one mature follicle on each ovary and a decent lining with Femara.

Just wondering - when you were on the lower dosage, how many follies did it make you produce?

Does your RE have you on baby aspirin?  I'm considering taking it even though my RE did not suggest it.  I dont think my doc puts too much thought into what he tells me to do each month.  He wanted me to do clomid again and i had to remind him that my results were not good last time.  He didnt really seem to care that my pregnancy didnt stick last month either, but i am desperate to get this show on the road!

Good morning. I'm feeling more stable today so who knows, maybe i was just legitimately sad yesterday. I guess thats allowed from time to time. Good luck tomorrow,  i'm sure everything will come out fine, but squeaky clean tubes are always a good thing!  $300 for HSG isnt too bad.  I didnt pay for mine. I'm in canada so that stuff is covered by the gov't.  However NO procedures are covered here so IUI or IVF will have to be paid for out of pocket.

OH NO! I dont need weight gain right now, i'm expanding out of everything i own as it is!  I better get pg soon so i can go & buy some maternity clothes!  I hate to buy anything new these days, just in case i finally wind up pg.
