Mandi: :happyforyou: Happy birthday!! Enjoy your evening out with DH!

Heather: Sorry to hear that your SIL is still having problems, but glad that she's getting help. Even if you can't go visit her right away, sending her some snacks will let her know that you're thinking of her. Btw, the pic of you under the desk was so funny :)

Jillian: You're probably fine. Just make sure to BD today and even tomorrow. The OPK says when its almost time to ovulate, so you know to start BDing. Usually the temp shift would tell you when O actually happens. The egg lives for something like 12-24 hours afterwards, so you can still catch it even after ovulating. Did you get your thermometer yet?

Preeti: Glad the U/S went well. Were you able to see the baby or was it too little?

Kymbr: I started reading Hunger Games last night and am halfway done. Good thing she gave me the next one too :)

MJ: Thinking of you and your family today.

Di: Good luck with the dr on Friday. I've heard that lots of people have healthy pregnancies the very next time trying after a MC. FX that's what'll happen for you!

Claire: I forget who said it before, but I also read your posts imagining the accent. I like the cute phrases or words that aren't too common here (like trolley vs shopping cart). Just makes me smile. Seems like your hormones are all wacky with the crying...make its a good sign!

Katie: Glad you got the confirmation!

Amber and Rochelle: :hi:

Tessa: Your U/S picture was so cute. Baby looks like its reaching up to give you a hug!

AFM. My temp is up today, so I probably O'd yesterday. So onto the 2ww I go. :) FX for this month!

Kim My therm arrived today. I know it's late in the cycle, but I think I will temp the next few days just to start tracking. Maybe I can figure out when the O happens.

Congratulations to all the little baby bumps!
I'm a little discouraged because I had blood work done to check my progesterone levels to see if I was ovulating. I had it done on cycle day 35 and since my cycles are irregular, I hadn't ovulated yet. Well, my levels showed that I wasn't ovulating. Now my question is, don't they need to check my levels after I think I ovulated to get an accurate reading and not before. Even though I thought my chart looked like I ovulated last cycle she said it would tell her if I really did or not. How can a blood test tell her what happened last cycle. Does this mean I never am ovulating or just not when the test was done? I don't know what to do. She wants to do another progesterone level test at day 25 of next cycle too. I feel like I should have one when I see a temp rise. What do you think?

I definitely think it makes more sense to be tested again later in your cycle, I'm not sure how they could possible be able to tell so far after the fact...

For example, if you do O, but have a short Luteal Phase, then you won't have a big surge of progesterone anyway... I don't know - I'm no expert at this...

Hi Ang, there can be other reasons for not ovulating...has your doc tested your TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) levels or your prolactin levels? When my OB suspected I wasn't ovulating, he tested these hormone levels first. If either of them are out of whack, getting them back to optimal levels could mean you'd start ovulating. Sorry if you've already had these tests done and I've failed to notice, though! I certainly feel your pain, my cycles never became normal after stopping my birth control.

I'm sitting in the doctors office waiting for my prenatal exam, which is why I've been so quiet! I've been waiting 40 minutes and I hope its soon because I need to eat! [/url]

I like to check in (when I can) throughout the day - sometimes it is on my lunch hour, or just whenever I feel the need to sneak in to check out everyone's daily events. :D

Heather, hope your appointment goes well!

Jillian, glad you got to BD last night!

Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes! I really appreciated it. I did manage to get out of the house last night. Woohoo! DH took me shopping for some Psi Bands (anti-nausea acupressure wrist bands) and I picked up some Preggie Pop drops, too. Within minutes of putting on the bands, I felt overall much better! I also had a drop in my mouth, too, lol. My nausea went down significantly and my appetite returned within a few hours. By 9 pm we were ordering a pizza - and I ate it! I haven't gotten sick in over 24 hours. I'm not 100% better, but I'd say I'm at least 75% back to my old self. I can think about food, and eat again, so I'll take it! :jump:

I love my doctor, but sometimes I wonder about that clinic. my appointment today was for a full prenatal exam, but they booked me for an office visit, so they were really rushed for time, and I ended up waiting 45 minutes for my appointment (which was supposed to be at 11:15am). Then once they call my name, the nurse hands me a cup and asks me to pee in it - then she takes it, and me back to a room in the back, does a test with the urine, and weighs me.

Once I get in to see the doc, it wasn't my regular doc, but her resident that came in and did everything (which I wasn't as happy with - she's very by the book, and is constantly trying to date my pregnancy based off of my last period - which would put me about 14 weeks pregnant right about now...) I have told her several times that i was charting, and I ovulated on Feb 14th (I FELT it!!!!!) So I told her I was 10 weeks 2 days. Rather than believing me, she dug up my ultrasound info. My ultrasound last week was done late afternoon on April 2, which would put me at 8 weeks 6 days - they dated me at 9 weeks, which makes sense since just a few hours later I would be. Because of that Anytime I said anything about my due date being Nov 6th, she corrected me to say Nov 5th, and when my actual doctor came in she asked how far along I was, and I said 10 weeks, 2 days, and the resident corrected and said 3 days. Ugh.

.... I'm probably a little more bitchy about this than need be because by this point it was 12:45, and I was STARVING, and thus very ill feeling.

Also, once the doctor got in there she asked if I could do a urine sample, and I responded that I did one before I got in the room, and she said "yes I know, but they didn't ask me what test I wanted to do with it, and they already used it for something" *sigh* so I went and managed to squeek out a few more drops of pee for them, in the worlds smallest cups (seriously WHY do they have to be so small? I swear they get smaller every time I have to pee in one, and without fail I ALWAYS pee on my hand!)

They also tried to hear the little bubs heartbeat to no avail, but I was completely okay with that, because I really wanted Ben there to hear it with me, and neither of us realized they would be doing that today, so I'll make sure he comes to my appointment next time!

All in all it was just a very disorganized appointment with a very hungry pregnant woman. I'm since back at work with a tummy full of lunch that Hubs had ready and waiting for me on my desk! (Love that Man!)
