CALLING ALL WOMEN OF STRENGTH!!!

A strong woman works out every day 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.

Hi ladies! I got my +opk on Thursday (CD 14) and another one on Friday! So according to my tracker, I'm 2 dpo today, although I really think it's 3dpo b/c I didn't feel any O pains past Friday. Oh well, at least I'm in my 2ww! :) We bd'd Wed thru Fri so we'll see! I'm thinking I may follow bfromthed and have a progesterone test done just to make sure?? Although I'm pretty sure b/c I'm not having O pains at all anymore, and that's my key sign... I'll probably still have it checked though! lol!
Bfromthed- I'm sure if you would've waited one more day it would've been more accurate, and would've showed that you did in fact O! I would call and double check with your Dr. Maybe you can have another one done just to reassure yourself! :)

Dnikki- Mommyin10 texted me that too! That's SO gross! Uugh!! I put Addy on Enfamil and seems to be doing great with it! Hopefully Peyton will adapt ok too! :) Lucky you, wish I had some time off from work too! ;)

Krichar- Yayyy!! Look at you! I LOVE how positive you are! :) I agree, this IS your cycle!!! :) Good luck!!!!


I already did this once and I pressed something and it deleted everything lol!!! I'll update on myself later!

If I got anyone's updates wrong, let me know! Have a great day everyone!!

Hugs, Love and SSBD to all :-)

luvkayln- ~*~*~*SSBD~*~*~*~* /i hope this is your month!!!! So excited you are starting again!!

guesito- I bet you are excited to find out!!! Seems like everyone on here is having boys but after seeing your belly shot i think girl! Mot people who have boys seem to get "fat first" no real belly just chunkier and you are all belly!

okay found you ladies..just waiting had a + OPK in 9/17 just waiting for af I know that can be 2-3 weeks so 10/1 to 10/8 had my progesterone drawn 1 day before it was due cause I could not make the appt due to a prior planned engagement it was 9.7 so not sure what that means cause I normally dont have it checked for a non-medicated cycle...also I do ave Clomid and Ovidril donated for a cycle whenever af decides to show. Not sure what to make of my temps lately they are all over the place...had some cramoing the other day hought af would come and nothing...then yesterday and toady it feels as if Im having ovary tuggiung so I took anothe opk just to be sure it was not that and it was negative...so I guess my body is just healing still? Re said that af can come 4-6 week aetr neg beta after d and c beta was negative on 8/31 so that would be 10/5-10/12 so it all a waiting game for me right now. But I feel well and I am just anxious to ttc again! God bless you all and thanks for sticking with me on this!
God Bless!...baby dust and lots of sticky vibes

thanks all for the responses. I guess I was wrong assuming it was pretty common that procedure, as a basic routine test before starting any treatment, atleast, here in PR at both RE we have gone, it has been like that, the only thing, that the first RE we went to back in 2007 didn't do this, this was the only test he didn't do, don't know why... it is a biopsy, but is just to ck on the endometium lining....anyways....thanks!!
574521 tn?1313498746
So you think its a girl? lol We want a boy but would be happy either way.
982214 tn?1471458381
I could be wrong...are you filling out in the love handles area or just right out in front? I am a pretty good guesser when i can see pics...LOL!!!


bfromthed- I wish i had some advice for you...as hard as we have tried we have never succeeded naturally. I think i tracked temps and o's just to say i did it...LOL!!! I really hope this works for you...~*~*~SSBD~*~*~* After my emergency D&C back in February it took 9-10 weeks to get my af. I had super light spotting 5 weeks after...like only pink when wipe (sorry tmi) they sent me for a beta  because i still had all the symptoms. Unfortunately it was just residual progesterone in my system. And when i finally got AF it was still really light and only lasted 2 days (only pantyliner). So hang in there!!! Sometimes they do a very thorough job and it takes awhile for our linings to build back up!!
574521 tn?1313498746
Im only filling the front round and hard belly,


Bf- I agree with Krichar, wait and see what happens. Good luck sweetie
982214 tn?1471458381
Then i am going to have to say girl...LOL. Usually with boys women tend to fill out all around and they just look fat for awhile...LOL!!!!! I guess we will have to wait now, so my official guess is girl then!!

Hi ladies! I'm back after a 2 week break following my IVF BFN in July. STarted stims 4 days ago. Will probably go for an IUI this time.

Somehow I'm feeling apathetic and indifferent this time. Usually I used to get so excited at the start of stims but after 3 failed IUIs and 2 failed IVFs I'm like: what the...
Maybe I'll get better once the follicles start showing up on the u/s.

How are y'all doing?
love, hugs and SSBD,
Sam.

Anyone have to take short term disability after having a baby? DH has been on it and getting only 66% of his check since this whole back thing started and I heard that if you are collecting a disability check that you pay into through your employeer you aren't supposed to have to pay federal taxes on that money.  True story?  They are still pulling it from his check so I am hoping we get it back next year when we file?  I did a yahoo search on it and a few people answered this question and said that is correct but I thought who better to ask than woman who have most likely been there.

thanks for listening!

Shelby just turned 6 mothns old yesterday... going for pics in an hour!

Guesito: When do you get to find out what you are having? It's so exciting isn't it?! Hope you're doing well!

Luvkayln: When will you test? Good luck!!!

Keyan: Any word on when the biopsy will be? Hope all is well your way :-)

Sammy J: Hey!! We all totally understand but glad you are back! I know what you mean about feeling wierd this time - It's like we've done it sooo many times that it almost becomes a daily routing, kind of mechanical or something. What CD are you? When do you go in for a follie check? Good Luck Girl!!!

Bfrom: I agree - AF is probably around the corner (although hopefully you are p/g all naturale!!!) But just wait it out for a little longer. If still nothing then give your doc a call. I know it's frustrating with the waiting game and all...((hugs))

Sbumble: I have no idea - When I was on worker's comp I only got 66% but didn't have taxes taken out - And I had to claim that on my tax return. So you will probably get it back when you file. Some states are probably different than others. That would be nice to get a good return lol!!! I can't believe Shelby is 6m, although Peyton is 8m today...Holy cow!!!!

AFM: Just soooo busy! Things have been up and down for the past week for myself. AF finally showed but it was the most painful cycle I've had since before I got p/g with DS. And my OB said the pill would make it better. Whatever. I hate it when docs don't listen! I see her again in Dec. so I'll have one more cycle between now and then. If she still doesn't agree to do a partial on me, I will find a different doc. I even started a pain journal to take her and she can flip through it and read it. I'm just tired on pain. Oh, and now I have a possible MCL tear in my knee. I had an MRI done this past Wed. and I see my ortho doc on the 7th for the results. We shall see I guess. Other than that stuff things are great lol! I got the kids' Halloween costumes. I'm making DS's. He's going to be an elephant and she's going to be a ladybug :-) Oh, and DD turned 8months today!!! I can't believe it! And DS will be 4 in Dec. Man, time flies!!! Well, I'm going to get off here and get some dinner going. It's so cold and rainy out I think it's soup night :-) I hope all of you are doing well!! Have a great weekend!

Hugs, Love and SSBD to all :-)

I am starting Clomid today after my m/c on 8/7...I am nervous as if we get preggo...thiswill be the 8th pregnancy we have had a no babies to show for it (you can read my profile its a long one). I do not believe in giving up and I pray that God's hears all of our cries and grants us these blessings! Good luck to all and God Bless we will get there!
