Staying- Hope your appointment went well! We'd love an update when you get a chance.

Peaks- Ohhhh! I have everything crossed for you! I hope that this it for you! I'll be stalking for updates. Are you planing on celebrating Thanksgiving this week?

AFM- AF showed yesterday after a few mornings of steady temp drops. I have no idea why my LP was 15 days this cycle. If I look back over my charts, I've had 3 or 4 cycles where I've had a 15 or 16 day LP. Otherwise, I'm pretty consistent at 12-13 days. I have a TTC follow up appointment with my gyn this afternoon, and that is on my list of questions to ask.

Other than that, we're just getting ready to host Thanksgiving. My brother is coming and we always invite our friends who don't have any family in the area. Not sure how many we'll have, but I'm looking forward to it.

Ahh... the wait is killing me. I bought a test today but haven't used it. I think I'd like to look at the results with DH, but today just wasn't a good day for it. He had just this afternoon been to the funeral of one of his clients with whom he had worked for ten years (DH is a social worker), and I know that was hard for him. We were also just at a funeral the other day for a woman in church who was 48 who died of cancer. My first time officiating a funeral here, and extra hard because I knew the woman and her family. So all in all, it's been a week pretty much saturated by death and dying. It just didn't seem like the right moment to take the test and share potentially life-altering news. DH knows I was due for AF, and as he didn't think or didn't want to bring it up, I thought I'd let him at least get through this day. I think I'd really like to know for me, though, so I may test tomorrow morning anyway. Then can figure out a good time to tell him later. But I just couldn't do it when he was exhausted and not in a great place mentally. Meanwhile, not a hint of AF. More updates and a less self-centered post soon!

Janeite: How are you feeling about the beginning of a new cycle? And how did your appointment go? I hope that whoever you spoke to was helpful, or at least nice! Your Thanksgiving plans sound nice. That is one thing I do miss, as it's one of the few holidays I typically observe that's totally absent here. On the sacred day itself, I'm going to a slightly-hipster-yet-strangely-elegant restaurant with my MIL. She'll already be in town for another appointment and wanted to have lunch with me, so I was super-excited to learn that this restaurant is serving Thanksgiving dinner at noon in order to give Swiss people a taste of this odd American custom. :) On Saturday, I'll have a few friends over and actually cook supper. DH had already made plans to play cards with friends, so I'll be hostessing solo. But no problem, I'm looking forward to it. I think he and I have actually never had Thanksgiving together because he never remembers that it's a holiday (despite me putting it on our shared i-cal in bold letters...).

And now for me... I woke up at 5:30 this morning and absolutely HAD to test. Voila the result:

IMAG1459.jpg (42.71 KiB) Viewed 645 times

I have no idea how to tell DH, but I'm not feeling like making a grand announcement. This is the fourth time I've been in this situation, so I'm proceeding with great caution. I've never made it past week 8, so will be holding my breath until Christmas (so appropriate for Advent anyway!). Probably to the end of the first trimester, if I'm really honest. So I guess, bottom line is that the wait continues!

Hi Ladies!!

So sorry for the long delay- this site has been rather wonky lately and I no longer receive updates when new posts are made to the thread. So let me do my best to quickly catch up here!

Janeite- I am so sorry to hear that AF showed again, but I am hoping that your follow up appointment with your gyn went well and they were able to offer some next steps for you. I am also sorry to hear that your insurance doesn't cover any infertility treatment. It is such a long and expensive road. I hope it's not something you will have to endure. So happy that all worked out with your job! Your Thanksgiving plans sound great. I hope you have a great time enjoying the holiday with your friends!

Peaks- AHHH!!! First off CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so happy for you! As I was reading through the thread and hearing your symptoms I just had a feeling this was going to be it for you! Of course I can understand that you are guarded due to what has happened previously, but all I can suggest is to try and stay as positive as possible (I know, I know, coming from me- the worry wart who feels like something terrible is going to happen at every appointment!) Do you have plans to try to get in with your gyn as early as possible to ensure your prog levels are good to go and to rule out the need to add progesterone supplements? I will be keeping you in my thoughts the next few weeks and hoping that this rainbow baby of yours is here to stay!! That stinks that you don't really get to celebrate Thanksgiving where you are, but it sounds like you have some lovely plans set up over the next few days. Please keep us posted on how you tell DH your exciting news!!

AFM- my appointment on the 17th went well. We were tracking at 11 weeks and 1 day and our little baby was flinging his/her arms around and doing somersaults - I couldn't help but to crack up. (As we are still doing the ultrasounds trans-vaginally, my laughing caused our u/s tech a little trouble keeping the probe in place and on our baby). I have no idea why I thought this was so funny, but it was nothing but pure joy. It is also crazy because I wasn't feeling any of this movement at all! My ovaries are still large, but luckily my right side that had a few 11cm cysts have shrunk down a bit to about half that size. My left side is still staying steady, but she assured me that it will only be a matter of time before both sides go away. I go back again on 11/29 for my first viability scan where they will be somehow measuring the fold of the baby's neck which is supposed to help determine the likely hood of our babe having a chromosome issue including down syndrome/trisomy, etc. I am hoping that all comes back just fine. After this next appointment, we will be converted over to the "regular OB" visit cycle where I will go back every four weeks up until a certain point of the pregnancy. I suppose that is a good thing, but at the same time it makes me nervous. Having the ultrasounds gives me peace of mind that all is okay with our little peanut.

Short work week here, which I am thrilled about. I am looking forward to the time off and enjoying time with my family. I hope you both have a fantastic weekend, and I will pop back on when I can.

Staying! I'm so glad that all is well with you and the small one. I love the joyous image of you laughing during the ultrasound! You sound so happy. I'm also glad the cysts seem to be diminishing nicely. Nearing 12 weeks already... wow! Do you have plans on when and how to tell people? I understand how unsettling it can be to not have ultrasounds as frequently, but perhaps you'll begin to feel the baby more as time goes on, and you'll just know thanks to movement (and weight gain, I imagine!) that things are progressing.

I set up an appointment for December 5, which would put me somewhere in week 6. I never had progesterone problems before, and as the last MC was due to a chromosomal abnormality, it doesn't seem that there is anything on my side that is an issue. I just want to have ultrasounds every two weeks or so in the beginning to make sure the baby is still alive. Apart from that, I don't want to jump into testing unless the doctor recommends it. I can so easily imagine myself becoming paranoid, and the feeling of being a lab rat and waiting for results doesn't help. For now, I'm trying to stay calm.

Well, telling DH didn't go exactly as I had planned, but that's probably because I didn't have a plan. He asked during dinner how things were going with the TTC process, as it seemed he vaguely remembered that I was preoccupied by it over the weekend (dear sweet man, but a little absent-minded). My response, "Uh, well, I'm pregnant." Not my most elegant moment, as we sort of stumbled upon the subject suddenly. He froze for a second and his eyes got pretty wide, then exclaimed, "That's great!" I think he's also feeling a little more cautious this time. He also wants to help me keep anxiety to a minimum, and has been encouraging me to be more regular with yoga.

That's it for this edition! Wishing you both a very happy Thanksgiving!

PEAKS!!! A huge congratulations to you! I'm so happy for you! I understand your reticence, though, and I'll be praying for you and your little one!

Staying- great to hear from you! I lhave ve that you laughed through the ultra sound! I could feel your joy as you told the story!

I can't stay long tonight. Between family in town, two dogs that don't get along, prepping for Thanksgiving, and a miniature indoor flood I've had my hands full!! I'll try to pop on again soon for a proper update!

A very happy Thanksgiving to both of you!

Thanks, Courtney! I'm also a regular reader of one or two of your threads! You're welcome to hop over anytime. It seems that the Anyone starting a new cycle etc. thread is mostly just you and Janeite. Perhaps we could merge? (Sorry, that sounds horribly corporate!) As we've now reached 20 pages, perhaps we could even think of a new thread with a new name. It occurs to me that we're all fairly experienced waiters, and that we're all in our 30s. But that doesn't necessarily mean we need to exclude others. Thoughts??

My restaurant Thanksgiving lunch consisted of lovely roasted vegetables, a potato gratin, and an unfortunately super-dry turkey with "cranberries" that I swear were goji berries instead, though the server insisted they were indeed cranberries. Still, I appreciated the effort, and I had a nice time with MIL. Will tonight start brining my own turkey for in-house festivities on Saturday! Happy Thanksgiving again, and yay for gratitude!

Actually Id love that. Im sure Becky/Janeite would be fine with that too. lol One less place to respond too. We have been trying for 14 months for our 5th. I know I have several kids but I did struggle with infertility for 4 years before I got my first and now this time around. Im 36 as well.

Hope you had a lovely thanksgiving. We just got home and we are letting our bellies rest then headed to my dads maybe for just a visit instead of food!! Thankful for more things than I can count at the moment!!

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!!

Staying I haven't formally introduced myself, but Im Courtney. Ive read along your whole thread rooting for you this whole time! Im so glad you are finally pregnant and all is going well.

Peaks how did Thanksgiving go? It sounds like you have a good relationship with you MIL. I do as well. Infact our inlaws live in an apartment in our basement. My FIL got hurt in work accident and my MIl isn't in the greatest health either so they moved in with us. That doesn't work for everyone and most think we are nuts but it works for us. They are a huge help with my kids. I homeschool an my MIL is a great teacher when it comes to something I am not good at. She also folds ALL of my laundry!! I cook most meals and she cleans up. We still have our space and great boundaries. My mom lives right down the road from us as well. We are a very close family. I can't say that I could live with my mom though. lol My parents are divorced and my mom went through a divorce from my stepdad after 26 years. So she is single now. She has had a really rough time.

How are you feeling? Im sure you are cautious and want to get excited but with all you've been through Im sure its hard. However Im very excited for you! I believe all will be well this time around!

Becky you know Im super excited for you as well taking your new meds!! I can't wait to see how this month turns out for you!! I want you to have a Christmas bfp probably more than I want one myself! haha

I got crosshairs this morning! Thank God! Its about dang time! I finally od cd 25 or 26. I sure hope my egg was in good shape and not a shriveled up old one! My lining should be in good shape as well. I think Ive gained 5 lbs over the holiday! I got super hungry around o and then with all of the extra food around I just couldn't stop myself!! For the others that don't know my history, I have been trying to conceive for 14 or 15 months. Ive lost count. It will be our fifth. I struggled for 4 years before we had our 1st so I have had my share of infertility issues. I hope me having 4 kids trying for the 5th an final doesn't bother anyone. I feel bad sometimes bc others are struggling to just get 1 so I don't like complaining since I do have 4. There's just a longing in my heart for 1 more. Im 36 and honestly I never dreamed itd be so hard getting pg this time around. I had my last at 33 with no problems getting pregnant. My dh did work for an oil company where he worked around alot of chemicals between the last and this time and I often wonder if the chemicals couldve affected his sperm. We haven't done any infertility testing this time around except I did have lap to remove mild endo. I had that done two months ago. We have decided that we won't have anymore testing done and the only fertility treatment we would do is clomid or femara as we cannot afford an RE and my insurance doesn't cover it at all. My ob of 13 years retired this year so Ive had to see a new Dr which is moving to New Zealand at the end of this year so now I get another new dr. The one Im seeing now will not give me clomid bc she says I get positive opks. Ive seen many get the meds even when they o on their own. I never get great temp spikes and sometimes its hard to tell Ive even od. So Im actually looking forward to a new dr who might be willing to let me try clomid. Infact Im calling on Mon to either make an appointment or talk to her nurse about it. I have a feeling my age might have something to do with not being able to get pregnant. Im quite regular with my cycles but the last couple have been whacky. I have never od this late in a cycle before. Maybe its a good thing. I have lost quite a bit of weight in the last 4 months and I think it has affected me. I wasn't overweight before but it didn't hurt to lose some weight. I had weightloss surgery back in 2012. I am very short 5.1. I wasn't overyly huge but I had diabetes and high cholesterol and PCOS and had done everything under the sun to try to lose weight. I just couldn't so I went with surgery. At my heaviest I was 229 and now Im 119. All of my health issues have resolved as well. Its honestly one of the best decisions Ive ever made. I feel great and am healthy. I wish I were still in my 20s. It seems as the older I get time goes so fast! I want it to slow down!! I feel like I have a bday every few months. haha My kids are 13, 11, 9 and 2. 2 girls 2 boys. We live in southern IL in the middle of nowhere. Just woods and crops around which I love. I am a SAHM but Im a licensed cosmetologist and have a salon in my home and work from here as I have time to. My dh is the same age as me. He worked in the oilfield then had a back injury and is on disability at the moment until he gets his back fixed. He has an appt at the University of IL on Monday. This will be his second specialist hes seen. The first said he couldn't fix his back and we had all of his tests sent to this new dr and they said they thought they could help him. Finally some hope as he is in alot of pain. So anyway, I hope you all don't mind my lengthy overview of my history. Thank you for inviting me here. I love the support from a great group of ladies!!

Hi all!

Just popping on briefly before I won't available for a few days! I'm leaving this evening for France where I will teach an all-day course tomorrow to pastors-to-be. I've been really struggling to prepare, as doing stuff in French (particularly academic stuff) takes so much longer than in English! I've been quite stressed lately. In addition, I preached this morning (and recycled a sermon for the first time, but no one seemed to notice!), so had some preparation for the service. AND, I decided I absolutely had to make homemade Advent calendars for the children, which was totally not necessary, but once I decide something I absolutely must follow through. We don't usually have many children in the service, but as there have been more and more, I made ten just in case everyone happened to show up and bring a friend or two. And lo and behold, there were nine children today... Anyway, that craft project took lots of time, and of course I had to go to four different stores to find the simple materials I wanted, as there aren't really all-in-one department stores here. AND, on top of that, I decided to have Thanksgiving for my friends yesterday evening. It was awesome, but again, it took lots of time to prepare, and I was crazy worried that the turkey would be under- or overcooked. But it was great. Long story short, have not been taking good care of myself lately. Will write more thoughtfully when I'm back later in the week (sorry for the rambling). DH will go with me, and we'll make a mini-vacation out of it after my day of teaching, hopefully hitting a Christmas market or two. For now, wishing you all an excellent week!

Wow Peaks you are one busy lady!! All of you that live in other countries, life sounds so interesting compared to the US. I do good to speak proper English let alone more than one language!! I can't imagine learning another language. My husband is in the ministry. Hes worship leader and an elder at our church. My FIL and BIL are the pastors. Its a small church that we actually started in a house. We outgrew the house though. We have church on Sat nights. No reason except we wanted to try something different and we just stuck with it. We have often thought about changing it to Sun mornings but we have alot that have to work on Sun so we have just stuck with Sat night. I like it. sounds like your childrens calenders went well :) Also Im glad your turkey was perfect! Ive actually only made 1 turkey in my lifetime and I cant say it was that great. We are more ham people. Hope you are feeling good! Good luck on your course and trip to France :)

I vote in favor of a merger. :) I basically tell all of you the same stuff, anyway, so it will definitely work for me! Now, we just need a new name. I heard a Wordsworth quote recently: "The rainbow comes and goes." It really stuck with me. Maybe we could use Rainbow as part of our new thread name. Any other ideas?

Staying- It was great to hear from you! I hope you had a great time with family! I mentioned it briefly earlier, but I'm so glad your scan went well! It sounds like such a joyous moment!

Peaks- Safe travels and good luck with your class! I'm glad your turkey turned out and that you got to celebrate Thanksgiving, even though far from home. I had to laugh at your description of how you told DH the news. It may seem a little anti-climactic, but it sounds very special in it's own way. :) How's he feeling? How about you? Your scan is soon, right? I can't wait to hear the update!

Court- Thanks for the compliments on my cake! There is still a bit left, if you'd like to come over for a piece! :D I'm glad you are excited about my taking clomid, because I'm a little nervous. I just would rather not take drugs, if I can help it. At this point, however, I'm willing to do whatever it takes for that elusive BFP. Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving! Hooray for cross-hairs! I wouldn't worry that your egg was too old since you'd O'd so late. I asked my doc about Oing early, and he said that there is such a complex orchestration of things that need to happen to O, that there is no way the body will O without it being ready. That made a lot of sense to me. I would thing that it's the same for Oing late. You O'd when your body was ready. I've got my fingers crossed that the late O means good things for you! If not, hopefully your new doc will take a different approach.

AFM- I managed to survive my Thanksgiving week. I like ve to host and cook, but it can be rather stressful at times. On Tuesday last week, we had an overflowing toilet (clean water, thank goodness!) that left about two inches of water in my guest bath and hallway. We managed to get the water cleaned up quickly, but it seems to have damaged the wood-laminate flooring a bit. We still need to call the insurance and see if any of that is covered. Turns out that the roots of a holly bush planted in the front yard ruptured one of the pipes leaving the house. That's why we had the back up. So they're going to have to dig it up and replace it. Not too excited about that, but what can you do?

I never gave you girls a full update on my doctor's appointment. Basically, he seems to think that everything looks good and that I shouldn't be worried. I guess that's comforting, in a way, but it's still taking forever. At first he said that I didn't need clomid since I was clearly Oing. Then when I told him that my insurance wouldn't cover infertility treatments and asked if there was anything else we could do out of his office, he changed his mind. He asked if the office visits with him were costing too much, then decided that the clomid might help increase my odds. So here I am. I took my last pill yesterday and I have a scan booked for Tuesday to check my ovaries and folicles. I hope I don't O before then. My OPK was pretty negative still today, so there's a good chance I won't O before the scan. Thankfully, I haven't noticed any side effects from the clomid, other than a bit of a dull headache. I guess we'll see what it brings!

Hope you all have a great week!

Hello Becky, good to hear from you! I guess we have merged! lol I hope staying is ok with that. I know you'd rather not take anything but its the simplest of infertility treatments and that maybe all you need! Im glad your dr decided to let you give it a try. I wish my dr was as openminded. Keep opking just incase.

Im glad your Thanksgiving turned out well minus the "flood". I hate sewer problems and hope it doesn't cost you a fortune to get it fixed properly. Id still like a piece of that cake!! Ive ate so much I think Ive gained 6lbs in the last two weeks. I have to stop!! I could stand to gain about 10lbs so Im not too worried about it I just have to keep an eye on it.

I have had still tons of cramping despite O. It still makes me wonder when for sure I did even though I have crosshairs. Im afraid the waking up drenched in sweat and hot has nothing to do with my higher temps. I can have a high temp and be so hot and get up and go to the bathroom lay back down and temp and my temps go from 98 to 97.5 in a matter of minutes. My cm did dry up a couple days ago but still the dang cramping. I thought my endo surgery wouldve taken care of that. I really wanted to bd yesterday but DH was in no mood, but we did today just bc he was in the mood. My cramping has stopped as of this evening. I guess time will tell. Im def calling the dr on Monday to check on clomid. I just dont have a good feeling about this month. The cramping just makes me nervous.

So I put some nails on. New hard gel. I don't like it and it's been a complete pain in the butt!! Im very aggravated with them!! Ive been working on them all day.

So I just scheduled me an appt with a new ob in the same practice to discuss clomid. I asked for the most proactive dr when it comes to infertility. I explained my situation and she had an appt for this wed but I couldn't that day so I made it for the 6th, just in time for my next cycle to start. So dh is fine with me taking it. Let's just hope I don't have twins, well I have secretly always wanted twins but we wouldn't all fit in our van if I had two. Lol so I am just excited that I may get it and hopefully will increase my odds since we only have 4 months left of ttc.
