Hello ladies :-) I hope everyone is doing well... I didn't notice unitl today that our BFP list is starting to catch up with our cycle list!
Well 5DPIUI - yesterday I felt pretty c r a p p y, my head just felt funny and it made my stomach feel gross. Today I had some pretty bad cramp/pain in the left ovary area so I don't know if it was the bloody cyst or what...then just a little bit ago, I was fairly crampy on the right but I didn't have any follies from there. I'm not looking into anything, but I am trying to log my symptoms each month so I can check back to see if what I'm experiencing is normal :-)
I have been trying to keep track of the trigger shot - meaning is it still in my system. I have these little cheapy tests that came with my CBE monitor. They literally look like a cardboard stick with tissue paper on it. Anyways, I really don't think they work! I was about 3 days post trigger and it gave me a negative - Now I know that that is not long enough to get 10,000 units of hCG out of my system!!!!! I took another one last night which would make me 7 days post trigger and I got a negative too....so whatever lol! I'll just have to test the morning before my beta!!
Mommyin09: Again, congrats on the +OPK! I'm glad you are so positive and unstressed this cycle!!! Good Luck!!!
Good day friends!
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was pretty good. My friend is getting married this Friday so I went to her "stagette" on Saturday night. I didn't get home until 1am...I was sooo tired! It was fun but is not the same when you can't have a few cocktails! :) (not that I am complaining!) I am going to tell my work and the rest of my world next week. I want to have this next ultrasound and officially be in my 12th week before telling everybody. I'm excited and nervous about telling my work. In Canada we get a full year off for maternity leave. Awesome for me but a pain for boss to have my position filled for a year. Oh well..not my problem! :)
Mommyin09 - Your plan sounds awesome! Get those spermies in there and make them work for that b-ball follie of yours!! I think it is great that you are so relaxed and taking time off. I really think it makes a big difference! Just spend some nice time with Carmelo.
Luvkayln - Also glad to see you are enjoying yourself! I am so jealous of your nice weather!...flip flops?? We still have tons of snow on the ground. It has been milder the last few days but I won't be pulling out flip flops until May or June! :( I'm glad you are spending some nice time with Kayln. It must make you feel so good to be able to visit her often.
Candie - Glad you had a nice weekend. I find it easier to shop by myself unless we are buying things for dh...then I make sure I am there! :) Well you are almost a week into this cycle already! Good luck my friend!
Keyan - Sorry you have been sick. You have a big week to prepare for!! Good luck with your appt tomorrow and all the best with your surgery. Just think, by Wed it will all be over and you will be relaxing in bed...not having to work. Looking forward to your updates!
Ad_06 - So sorry about that darned BFN! But...I'm still holding out hope for you. Try to wait another day or two...are you going in for a beta this week?
Dnikki - I don't think you should use those tests again! If they are not showing positive after the trigger you will never be able to trust the results. But, I can see how tempting they were to try considering they were free! lol Try to hold off for another week or so...you are only 5dpiui :)
Mrspace - Good luck with your HSG!!!!
It's just after 3pm here and I had my HSG this morning. It was awful. The doctor was amazing though, as were the technicians. When he first put the cath in, it didn't really hurt at all. No problems. Well then he started to put the dye in and everything fell out. Oh well. So he went to put it back in but couldn't get the cath back in. So he took the tenaculum(sp) and went to open my cervix. But I guess my cervix was a little thinner than he thought and it ripped. I haven't ever felt pain like that before. It was terrible. So the whole test hurt after that. I don't think it would have hurt that bad if that hadn't have happened. But we'll never know lol.
I was planning on going back to work, but once I got home I was so sick. I am in a lot of pain, and my boss doesn't care. He's not going to be here til Wednesday, so whatever. DH has been taking really good care of me. He just hates that I'm in pain. Ha ha, he heard my scream from the waiting room too. I screamed when my cervix ripped. It hurt so bad and I wasn't prepared for pain like that. I probably wouldn't have screamed if I had expected pain. But oh well.
My right tube had a partial block (just a little bit of dye could pass through) so they had to put more dye in to eliminate the block. Which was fine. It's gone now. The radiologist actually told me to go to another doctor because he thinks I have endo. Funny how everyone but my doctor thinks that I should have a Lap done, and that I should go to a specialist. So we got my perscription for Metformin, but I haven't taken it yet. I'm going to take it with supper I think. Thanks everyone for being so supportive
mrspace: Oh, I'm so sorry about your test ;( I can imagine that would hurt. My HSG hurt a little, too, but nothing like that. I hope you're feeling better & can just be happy it's over :) I think the writing's on the wall, it's time for a new doctor!!!
Stacey: Sounds like a fun weekend! Wow, a whole year off work!? That's awesome & you're right, it's not your problem! :) Yes, I'm home today hanging out with Carmelo! It's been raining all day & he's a great little cuddle buddy ;)
dnikki: I agree, don't rely on those tests. The first one should have been +. Let us know when you test again! :)
Everyone: I'm not testing to see a BFP - but rather monitor to see when the trigger shot is out of my system lol :-) But, those tests are junk,so none of that lol!!
mrspace24- I am sorry that your HSG test hurt. I can totally relate. Mine hurt sooo bad! I found out that I had one tube completely blocked. I just had a lap done at the end of December. She was able to open it, but we are not sure how long it will stay open. I agree with everyone else, time for a new doc.. one that will listen.
dnikki0928- When is your beta? I am getting ready for my 1st IUI. I am anixous to hear some BFPs from one.
mommyin09- I am excited for your + OPK test. It's greet that you are o.k with trying natural this cycle. Good vibes your way!!!
As for me, I am CD 8 today. I took my last Femara last night. So far, so good. I have my doctor's appt. Sunday. DH & I started walking today. I need to keep my mind off things. I am hoping I am ready Sunday for trigger, but if not I will have to go back in. I don't mind that.. I just hope, hope at least 1 follies on my good side.... If I don't we probably won't do IUI :( I would love to give it a try.
rachjas: When do you usually O? I O'd earlier on Femara than on clomid and I've been told most people do. I'm sure you'll have at least 1 good follie :-) Let's both get BFP's this month from IUI!!! My beta is not this Thursday but the following. I'm trying not to look into things, so we shall see!!
Mrspace: I know we talked earlier, but feel free to give me a call when you are feeling better. I have jury duty all day tomorrow, but you can send some texts and I'll be able to get them on our breaks. Hang in there hon :-) ((HUGS))
Stacey ~ No beta yet, I was told to test on 14 dpiui, and if BFP, then call cause they'd want a beta...Thanks for holding out hope for me. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed!
I guess if AF doesn't show by Thursday which would be 17 dpiui, then I am testing and calling my RE if still BFN. Which for the past 2 years, I have been pretty accurate on when AF is coming, or atleast a day or 2 shy. I usually have major symptoms, and my cycle's have been from 28 - 34 day cycle and LP of usually no more then 16 days. So unless I have developed cysts or something AF should be arriving any day, unless BFP.(fingers Xed) Since this was my 1st time taking Femara, does it do anything to your cycle?? Just trying to add things up.....lol
Thanks everyone for all of your support and thoughts. I'll keep everyone posted on what happens!
Foolish of me to think tht I wld be able to coast free on 150mgs of clomid! Can I just say OW! I took a OPK test today (my last one) and there was a faint pink line in the surge window so I think i will ovulate tonite or tommorow. Until today I had just felt lil twinges here and there. Today I have cramps on both sides and with a headache plus lightheadness here and there. I have to make sure I am steady whn i get up so i dnt fall flat on my face or on the other half lol.
Anyone else ever have lightheadness cause its my first time with it?
well ladies my 38 week follow up appt today was ok but very overwhelming. My blood pressure was good again finally so no more bed rest but my creatine levels are off and i had to have more blood work.
i have another appt this thursday with my doctor and an ultrasound to see just how big Jaedyn is because the doctor today says that i have a very small pelvis but it is up to my doctor to schedule the c-section.
well congrats on the + OPK's.
ShySana: If you don't mind my asking, why are you on 150mg of Clomid especially with you being on it for the first time? Or maybe I didn't read it right...be safe!!!
