Hi ladies!

Thanks so much, BKB!! I'm really loving it :) So did you get your blood work results back? How does everything look? Have you scheduled the HSG yet or are you waiting to see what the blood work says before you go down that road? After both of those things for me came a laparoscopy, which is when they confirmed and removed the endometriosis that was keeping us from conceiving - just food for thought!

I think it's great to ease back into the TTC and not push it! You are doing so much right at the moment that you definitely don't need the pressure!

NC can't decide if it's spring or summer. Beautiful one day, then hot and humid as hell the next day! Guess I better get used to it - it'll be a long, hot, sticky couple months until baby boy gets here!!

Oooh, just the word buffet made me hungry and I just ate LOL!! Did you enjoy your Memorial Day weekend?? Ours was really busy, but lots of fun. Got in a pool for the first time since I've been pregnant and totally fell in love!! I actually felt like a normal person for a couple hours - it was beautiful - can't wait to go again!

My biggest news this week is the baby shower on Saturday!!! So excited. Love getting all the wonderful ladies in my world together for just about any reason and can't wait to see them all! I think it's going to be a LOT of fun :D

Hope you both are doing well this week!!

Yes I got the results, I can look them up online. My sugar is a bit high, and also my tryglicerides. And my Vitamin D is so low … need to keep up on the pills. All the other stuff like prolactin, progesterone, fsh, etc all look ok, the numbers are within the recommended range. No call from my doc though yet. I sent them an email and they have not responded. So I think I will call them today and see what they recommend next. They might just say wait for AF or BFP, I am on CD24. But what if AF does come, I would at least like the HSG or OBGYN scheduled so I can get in before I ovulate next cycle. Will talk to them for sure today.

I have gotten better with my diet this week, cutting out sugar and carbs. Even started walking at work with a couple friends and now I always go for a walk after dinner with DH and DS. After 4 days I can already feel a difference in my thighs! Getting rid of a lot of bloat. Drinking more water. I try and limit in the evening, but I am always needing to get up in the middle of the night to pee! And when I hold it in too long, boy it hurts. But it’s a lot of water weight coming off LOL!

I am loving the weather here! It’s about 66 or 68 every day. Not too hot and not too cold. Love going for my walks. This weekend is going to be 72. Going outlet shopping with my sisters and brother’s fiancé, and then probably to the brewery for some lunch and beer. Oh wait … I might not be able to have beer, cuz it will be CD26 and don’t know if I am PG or not …. Hmmm, is CD26 too early to take a test? I would be using just a $ tree one …

Yes Memorial day weekend was good, had fun with DH and DS … felt so good to have the extra day off and it was not hard at all coming back to work on Tuesday. Mondays are so hard!

I was thinking, baby shower already? And then I see your ticker, OMG almost 31 weeks! How’d that happen LOL. For the outside world a pregnancy goes by so fast, but usually for the pregnant lady feels like forever LOL!

It sounds like the blood work results were overall really good! Did you get an HSG scheduled? I totally agree that it's better to get it on the books so you can get it in before the next time you O...IF you don't get your BFP...which reminds me that it's CD29 ish for you, I think? Have you tested? Have you noticed any symptoms?

Good for you RE the diet and exercise!! Sounds like the weather there is perfect for getting out and stretching your legs. I wish I could say the same for here, but there isn't much walking in my world when it's 90 degrees and there's 90% humidity to contend with. Almost passed out the last time I tried to walk the dogs with DH in the evening. It's just too hot and humid, which makes me really fussy because I enjoy walking and want to be out there! Ugh.

I know, can you believe it?? Honestly, I think the first trimester dragged a little, but the second feels like it has flown by!!! I am 60 days out from D day ;) and that is totally crazy to me!! Now that we've had the shower - which was a total success, BTW - I'm on to making my "still need/still want" shopping list. Oh and thank you cards - need to make those happen this week, if I can. People were so incredibly generous - I'm so grateful!

CD5, I knew AF was coming and that she did. So, I talked to my doc and she said none of my blood test results would be affecting us trying to get pregnant. So she suggested an OBGYN, but there calendar is booked for 3 months, so I called another one that my friend went to (and is now 10 weeks pregnant). I got on Wednesday for the consultation. She said when she went, the next step after that was a blood test and then and ultrasound. I will also talk to her about an HSG and laparascopy. Just get everything out there and see what she thinks.

Glad to hear the shower went well, and now you can do the last of the shopping you need and get everything prepped before baby is here …. Have you experienced any Braxton Hicks yet? I remember I started getting them I think after 30 weeks. Wow, once you are in the “30s” weeks, you really feel pregnant and like your baby will be here in no time! Hope the weather is not too bad for you, but being due smack dab in the middle of the summer, I think you can’t avoid the heat. Hope you have lots of fans or A/C at home!

Charlotte, hope you are doing well with little Lincoln! Love the pics, so cute!

Ugh, I'm sorry BKB. I had a feeling since we hadn't heard from you. Really happy to see that you're taking charge of it and finding another doc to work with, at least for now. And definitely get everything out there! Find out what all the options are and check everything! So worth it in my opinion. Keep us posted on how the consultation goes Wednesday. Do you have any good fertility docs in your area or is that who you were already seeing? I feel like I should know the answer, but preggo brain is so real and I'm fuzzy on details all the time lately!!

I know I am getting sooooo excited to meet baby boy!!! Can't believe he'll be here in less than 2 months :omg: Yes, I've definitely had my fair share of Braxton Hicks contractions already. It's hard to pinpoint when they started though because I didn't realize what they were right away. I definitely notice them more if I'm a little dehydrated and with this heat, it's not hard for that to happen so I drink enough water to float a cruise ship LOL! I think I finally understand what women mean when they say the last couple months/weeks are the hardest. This is definitely the most uncomfortable I've been since I got pregnant. Don't get me wrong, so worth it!! I love watching & feeling little man move around in there - it's so incredible!!! But, it has gotten hard to sit at my desk all day or in the car during my commute and my back is really bothering me - I have a lot of trouble walking after I've been sitting or laying down for a while - end up looking like a 80yr old lady without her cane LOL! But I know it will all be worth it so I rest when I can and try to make the best of it :) The heat is definitely difficult. It's just hard to run errands at 5:00 when I'm tired and sore already and it takes too long for me to cool off so I'm a one-stop kinda girl these days! Really amazes me how much my body has changed during this whole process and how much something like a little heat can impact my day now. So weird.

Also loving all the pics of little Lincoln, Charlotte!! He is adorable :D

Haven't gone to any fertility docs yet since DH is not excited about that. I was just seeing my regular family doc, and now she recommended I go to an OBGYN since it's been one year of TTC. Just got a call, and my appointment got bumped to next Wednesday. Seems the doc is out of the office for the whole week cuz she was hospitalized. Wonder what happened, will wonder if she will say anything next week. So, was looking fw to tomorrow, not gotta wait another week!

I don't blame your DH. Mine was not at all happy about the prospect, but after a year of trying, I managed to convince him it was time. The truth is, you still don't have to do anything you don't want to do or aren't ready for, but you're working with people who specialize in helping couples get pregnant. I found it was hugely comforting to be in their hands, even as opposed to my OBGYN, who I love. My fertility doc was amazing. We told him right from the beginning that we wanted to do this as naturally as possible and in the end, we did. Even the laparoscopic surgery was my idea - he mentioned it as a possibility, but never pushed for it. Then when I said I thought it was time, he made it happen! Just knowing that this is his whole world and he knows all the options and can recommend all the right tests, and courses of action, even just that he was really supportive because his main goal was the same as mine - to get me pregnant, was worth it!!! LOL. I loved every minute of the experience and was actually pretty bummed that when I did get pregnant, I had to stop going to see them!! I guess my point is that you can make it what you want it to be - fertility doc doesn't have to equal drugs and invasive procedures - and if you find the right doctor, it can really be incredible.

Ugh! Hate that you have to wait another week!! But definitely doesn't sound like there was anything that could be done - hope your doc is ok!

We’ll see how this OBGYN goes and what tests she will be doing …. Seems like she does a lot and can figure things out regarding infertility, so I hope to get answers. If not, I know that there are fertility experts I can go to. DH doesn’t have to know LOL. I’ll just say I’m going to another doc. I don’t think he really gets what an OBGYN is compared to a fertility specialist anyways LOL.

So what is the laparoscopic surgery really … googling it really did not help … lots of info out there that is confusing.

Thanks for the encouraging words! Only 2 days left till my appointment …. I know it’s just a consult, but it’s the start of something, I am so glad I am starting this process. CD12, not going to do any OPK tests or CM checking. Just going to BD when we feel like it. I think we always tire ourselves out in the beginning on days 11-15 so this time not going to pressure the BDing so that we are doing it more like CD15-19 since I think I always O after CD15.

Ah less than 50 days for you!!!

Really hoping your consult went well!! Whatever you are comfortable with doing is ultimately what's right for you! Hahaha, too funny RE your DH and the OB vs. FS :)

Ok, in my case, I suspected for a long time that I might have endometriosis. My aunt had it her entire life, but never (to my knowledge) did anything specific to resolve it because she never felt the need to have children. When we hit more than a year's worth of trying and determined that all my blood work was good and DH's swimmers were GREAT, I started really pushing for answers on the endo. That's when we decided to have the HSG. I had a sinking feeling that my left tube was blocked (lots of unnecessary backstory there) and when they did the HSG, the dye ran right up my right tube and right back down that same tube. Doc that performed the HSG said at that point, that the dye probably just followed the path of least resistance and that she didn't see any reason to believe the tube was blocked, but I wasn't completely convinced. When I went over the results with MY fertility doctor, I expressed my dissatisfaction with the "inconclusive" result and asked again about endo as possibly being the root cause of all my trouble - whether in my left tube or cervix, or wherever. He didn't think that any of my monthly symptoms were screaming endo, but he happily agreed to cut me open and find out (for those who are unaware, doctors are trained surgeons and LOVE any excuse to cut people open LOL). So, the plan was one small incision in my belly button, about half an inch long (which I literally couldn't see until about 2 months ago when I started to lose my belly button ;) ) and more after that, if necessary. They then go in with a little camera and check around to see what's there. In my case, they also pushed dye through my left tube because of the results from the HSG (it was clear!) and then they went into my cervix where they found a couple spots of endo. Halleluiah I LOVE being right!! Doc made a second incision essentially on my pelvic bone (that one left a little raised scar I can definitely see/feel - although I can't see it right now b/c of my big 'ol belly LOL!) and was able to get rid of the endo by basically blasting it with an electronic pulse. FYI: I could have had the same procedure done at my OBGYN's office HOWEVER, if they had found out that a tube was blocked, the OBGYN isn't equipped to clear it, while the fertility doc is. Just wanted to throw that in there. Anyway, the whole procedure took about an hour or so I think. Recovery wasn't too bad either - for you it'd probably be a breeze after powering through a C-section!! I had to pay out of pocket for it, but in all I think it cost me $1500 and it was worth every damn penny! Especially since I got pregnant on my first full cycle after the procedure. BAM!! So, that's pretty much it. I'm sure it's not for everyone, but it was such a relief to have someone get in there to look around and find out what was really going on!

Back to you!! I love the BDing plan and hope that relaxing and not pushing so hard for it early in your cycle is going to do the trick!! I have these moments when I'm not having the easiest day or I'm tired and in pain and just kind of fussy about being pregnant and I think about you. I think about you and Charlotte and me 9+ months ago and how it feels to want this so badly and I swear it makes me tear up (happy tears!) every time. I know we will hear great news from you one of these days and I'm just so happy to be here to share it with you!! Sometimes it's so crazy to think I spent all that time focusing on trying to get 2 lines to pop up on some stick without really having any idea what it would mean when they did - talk about life-changing!!

OMG, I know!! Can you believe it?!! I'm so excited I can't hardly stand it. I'm also admittedly kind of terrified about the whole birth thing, but I'm trying to channel my inner Wonder Woman and just have faith that I can handle whatever comes my way! And in the end, I'll get the best reward ever for all this hard work :D I already love this little boy so much I just cannot wait to meet him!!!

Well, I got a call the day before my consult and the doctor is still out of the office because of her hospitalization. My appointment has been bumped again, to July 9th. That’s a couple days before my AF is due, so I will definitely test before I go in. Wouldn’t that be great if I didn’t need that appointment? This month I am trying to relax but of course that’s hard to do. DS is almost 6, been trying for over a year, how can I not think about TTC. I just can’t. But we decided not to overdo it on the BDing this time. Other times we’d BD every day from like CD11 to CD19. And then some times tire out by CD15 and stop. So this time, we been spacing it out, and just focusing on getting more sleep and BDing only when we feel like it. So, we BD’d CD 11 & 12 which was Sun and Mon and didn’t BD again until this morning, CD16. We’ll BD again probably tomorrow or Sunday. I been sure to take all my vitamins, my prenatal plus an extra folic acid, and my vitamin D. I been eating more salads and now just have to start on the treadmill again. Small changes, slowly, so that I stick with it. Trying to do everything at once just sets you up for failure.


Hmmm, yes seems like a breeze compared to my C-section recovery! I should be able to handle it …. Will see what the doc says, start with an U/S and hormone check, and then perhaps HSG and go from there.


Yes those 2 little pink lines mean so much!!!! My friend announced on Facebook and at work that she’s pregnant. I’ve known since she was 5/6 weeks along and dying to talk about it at work, and now I can! Really hoping for me to get PG fast so that our kids will be close in age and we can both me on maternity leave at the same time! She is due in Jan, I am shooting for a March baby with this month.


So does your tummy wiggle up and down all over the place when baby moves? I loved watching that with DS, it was just amazing, having this little being in you, another life, moving around, it’s amazing.

Kmac – still hanging in there? Less than a month for you!!! Updates please!

CD7 for me …. I went last week and saw the OB for the first time, she is wonderful. Got blood drawn on CD3 to check hormones (FSH) and then today went in for my fist u/s and my ovaries look great, enough eggs there and follicles the right size they need to be. Going again on CD14 to look at them again and see if O is happening. Also she asked me to do the OPK tests to see if I get a surge. I usually do surge and stopped testing, but need to track now for her records. She wants DH to get a SA so will have to talk to him about it.

Hi BKB!

Yes, hanging in there is about all I've been doing the past few weeks. I have been really, really sick and it was super frustrating because everyone (OB nurses originally included) kept telling me I was just at that point in my pregnancy where I probably wouldn't feel too hot. I refused to believe it. No way what I was feeling was caused solely by my being pregnant. I was getting chills and sweats, accompanied by low-grade fevers multiple times a day. I couldn't bring myself to go to work most days or even do dishes some days. I would get this awful shallow cough and flu-like feeling every afternoon and hadn't slept in days - literally. Not, oh I'm not getting good sleep - no I got absolutely NO sleep. I was either too cold or too hot or too worried I'd be one or the other after I got up to pee! Sure enough, I finally convinced someone to listen to me and ended up at my regular doctor's office to get some real help. Turns out not only did I have a raging bad UTI that I was completely unaware of (I take cranberry supplements and they were happily masking the outward symptoms) but I also had an upper respiratory infection...all ON TOP of being thirty some weeks pregnant in the middle of a North Carolina summer. I have never been so relieved for a diagnosis in my life. I almost hugged my doctor, seriously. So today is day 4 on antibiotics and I am finally feeling human again...completely and utterly exhausted, but human!!!

Aside from that, I had my weekly OB appointment today. My doctor isn't convinced that baby boy is in the right position (i.e. head down) and thinks he's still transverse. Not sure if I shared this last time or not, but there's been a lot of discussion about doing a version if he doesn't turn on his own or having to schedule a C-section to get him out. Clearly, babies do NOT come out sideways. It's been a real point of contention for me because discussions started at 34 weeks, which I feel is way too early to discuss position. Anyway, last week the doctor I saw said she was certain his head was down. I wasn't sure I believed her, based on what movement I feel and where, but I'm not the expert so I thought we were good - one less thing to worry about. But I saw MY doctor today and like I said, she isn't convinced. So next week I'll get an ultrasound along with my weekly checkup and we'll go from there depending on what he's doing. I'm going to say for the record that I HATE the idea of a version. It sounds painful and awful and can send me into labor and cause an emergency C-section. Anything with "emergency" in front of it, isn't high on my list. Trying not to worry too much about it, but it's on my mind for sure!

Anyway, enough about me! So glad you like your new OB!! That makes such a huge difference. I also like what she's doing - again, not that I'm an expert, but I have been down the "what's keeping us from getting pregnant road." So happy to hear everything looks so good with your ovaries!! That's a huge win! I think her advice to use the OPKs all the way through is great. You never know what it might reveal. And having your DH get an SA is crucial. I know it's never an easy conversation and my DH hated the whole process, but this is definitely a 2 person party so it's important to at least maybe rule them out. That's what happened in our case anyway. DH is the "perfect specimen" :rofl: His biggest complaint was how awkward the process is, but it's the LEAST they can do, really. I mean, we do all the rest of the work! So you have to do something you probably do anyway, just under slightly less comfortable circumstances, suck it up buddy ;)

Please keep me posted on how everything's going with the testing and O. Do you guys have a "plan" for BD this time around or are you going to stick with the more laid-back approach for now?

Had my second u/s yesterday and OB saw on my left ovary, a nice follicle getting ready to be released. (So glad it was there, and that my body does ovulate on its own and produce eggs). She said O should happen in 4 days, so around CD18 … hmmm, seems late … wonder if this is how it is every month and we are not BDing at the right time? I thought I Od around CD15-16 … well this cycle we will start the BDing late so we don’t tire ourselves out and since I know now that on CD14 the egg is not ready to come down yet. So we skipped last night to keep our stamina for tonight! Starting the BD schedule CD15 and will go until CD20 to get all the possible days covered. OPKs for the last 3 days have just a faint line, so will keep testing to see when the surge comes.

DH is really good with his diet and eating his organic food and low carbs and all his vitamins, so I hope that is leading to healthy sperm. Wish I could be like him, but I love my carbs. The last 2 weeks though we have been going for evening walks together for at least 40 min. I have totally noticed a difference in my thighs, and I am not so winded anymore when I have to walk around a lot. Hoping all this will help us get our BFP … if not DH will need to get a SA done and then OB said I will go on Clomid so that my body produces a couple extra eggs for O, so the sperm has a better chance at fertilizing one of them.

Oh my, that is horrible what you have had to go thru with the UTI and respiratory infection! Good thing it’s all figured out and you are feeling better, especially in this stage of your pregnancy.

Hope baby moves around and turns on his own so that he’s head down for you! There is a lot of time for that to happen still. Let’s see what the little squirt does. Don’t let the worry of a C-section get to you! Just remember the end result either way is a healthy baby.

So how did your weekly appointment go and the ultrasound?

I am so happy to hear that they saw a good follicle!! What a relief that is, I'm sure! And it looks like the OPKs are definitely a good idea, since it seems you're Oing later than you thought.

Good for your DH! It's always good to do what you can to eat healthy, but it's definitely easier for some of us than others. I also love carbs and so does baby boy!! Prior to pregnancy, I'd been gluten-free for a year and a half, but in the last couple months, I haven't been able to fight the cravings and it is wrecking my digestive system!! Anyway, the walking is GREAT! And I'm so glad you're noticing a difference because I know what great motivation that is!!

Fingers and toes crossed you get your BFP and don't have to go the SA or Clomid route, but if you do, I suggest asking your doctor about Femara too. I heard a lot of negative feedback from women on Clomid, but I didn't have any trouble with Femara - just something that might be another option, if you need it. BUT I'm so hoping you get your BFP and don't have to mess with any of it!!!! It really seems like you've got a lot going for you this month, even just the timing of it could do the trick!!!! I'm so excited :D

AFM, baby boy has finally gotten himself into the right position!! Ultrasound tech said he was "really down in there," despite the fact that I still don't feel like he's "dropped" exactly, but I'm just happy he's where he should be! She estimated his weight at 8lbs 3oz, but warned that the # could be off quite a bit still. He's got a TON of fluid in there with him, which is good and all his other measurements look great. Doc said she's not worried about his weight (or mine, for that matter) so now we just wait. Oh, and (TMI alert) I'm almost certain I lost my mucus plug on Sunday morning so that means I'm one step closer to meeting my son!!! I wasn't necessarily going to opt for a cervix check at this week's appointment, which is tomorrow afternoon, but now I think I'll let them go ahead and do it. I have to say, part of me is really excited, but the other part is honestly not ready just yet. I know it sounds silly (especially to those who already have children) but I keep telling little man if he can just wait until next Wednesday, we'll be good ;) I've still got so much I want to do before he gets here and I'm a little worried he's going to surprise us all and come early! Sure, we'll all be fine if he comes today, but I'm such a planner, that if I don't get a least a couple more things off my pre-baby prep list, I may lose it LOL

Ah, seems like baby is ready to come out into the world! I wouldn't be surprised if he's born this weekend! Wow, I bet you are all butterflies, I was like that when DS was on his way. You get this adrenalin rush but then nervousness too cuz you just don't know what to prepare for, everyone's body is different, so you don't know what your birth story will be. Any way it may be, good luck! I can't wait to here good news soon!

It was our anniversary last week, and this weekend we are going away to the WA coast. I don't know where, DH booked it and said it's a surprise. We leave Thursday and back Sunday. DS is going with us too. By the time we come back it will just be a couple days from finding out if I have a BFP or AF is coming. FX.
