I'm here.

So it has been an interesting week for emotions.
One day I was scared about my appointment, yesterday I was freaked out, and today I'm excited.
I wonder how I'll feel tomorrow.

Thanks for the support about drinking and clomid ladies! I need to stop overthinking these things! I forget who said it, wishful? About it making the side effects worse and that must explain my nervousness!

Loz - haha I almost posted then was going to delete later but I was too scared I wouldn’t catch it in time to delete or that it wouldn’t let me! I saw your BFN today, i’ve been stalking your chart girl! How long is your usual LP? Remember you’re not out until the witch shows!!

Fly - thank you so much that makes me feel so much better from someone that was on it!! I really appreciate you dropping in to check up on us ladies. I hope you and the little bean are doing well!

Whoz - thanks! I just called DH actually because my anxiety was getting the better of me and he talked me through everything I was feeling and made me feel a lot better! I’m glad I have him.

Wishful - I forgot to respond earlier! I can’t believe I thought your appointment was tomorrow. Haha. sorry about that! I understand now why you’re anxious about it because it’s so far away! I’m no expert at staying calm but when I would get anxious waiting for appointments I would just tell myself that even if it’s bad news you’re getting information! I hope everything goes well for you! Does insurance cover anything?

Well, lets see if I can get personals done before my internet messes up again.
Loz Im sorry for another bfn and in general just feeling down. I totally understand feeling that way when you see bfn after bfn and month after month. Its like we just expect bfn no matter what after awhile. If you dont get your bfp this month or two next cycles atleast you have an appt with the specialist to give something else a try. Im glad you have that option. Does the Hashimotos or however you spell it affect ttc? I dont know much about it? Are your cycles pretty regular? You mentioned you have PCOS too, right? Im sorry if I got that wrong, I get people and health issues sometimes confused. If Im right, what kind of symptoms do you have from that? I have it and even though my most of my symptoms have been controlled with weightloss I still get the hair in wrong places part of it. My blood sugar tends to run on the high side as well. If I were to gain 10-15 lbs it automatically lengthens my cycle as well. Ive lost 20ist ish lbs in the last couple months and Im thinking thatś why my last two cycles have been shorter and Im oing earlier. Your temp going back up is good though. Im hoping you get to see a bfp in a day or two!! Your pic of you and dh was adorable! You are beautiful :) Your kitty is adorable as well. I love cats. We have 1, did have 2 but I think a coyote got her. Max is a tiger cat. Hes so big, weighs 20 lbs.

Faith you crack me up. I love your humor. I can hear it in every post :) I as well have tested many times at 6 dpo. I totally know there wont be a line there, but just cant help myself. lol How long is your lp?

MK what a great pic of you and your dh. When I was a kid I watched the movie Labryinth with David Bowie in it over and over. lol So you are waiting on o, correct? I forget where everyone is in their cycles.

Whoz how are you feeling? How far along are you now? Remember 3 out of my 4 pregnancies I had no symptoms till around 8 weeks so try not to worry about it. When is your first dr appt again?

Danaa thanks for the new page. How are you feeling sweetie? How is Dh doing?

Andi Im pretty sure 2 drinks wont hurt the effectiveness of the clomid. Im glad you got to go out and enjoy a night to yourself. I hope it helped you relax a little. When will you start using your opks? Im also glad your day 3 blood work turned out fine.

Star how are you doing? I know you dont have anything new to report for awhile, but we still like to hear from you.

Wish congrats on your weightloss. Your pic looks fabulous. Im excited for your appt to see what the dr says and how they want to progress. Where are you at in your cycle now?

Fly how are things with you? Have you moved yet?

2 dpo seems so far from the time I will be testing. Its hard to make myself think I will get anything other than a bfn though. Im trying just to ignore it and pretend Im not awaiting anything. Maybe if I try not to think about I wont stress as much. Im going to do my best to stay busy. The kids and I are going to pick apples tomorrow. I usually get 6 bushels but I think Im going to cut it own to 4 this year. I make applesauce and apple butter and can it. Itś so much work but worth it. It will prob take me atleast 2 days to get it finished. Its suppose to be rainy for several days and Im actually looking forward to it. I like rainy lay around days as long as itś only a couple. Its suppose to turn cold after that.

Hope I didnt miss anyone. Incase I did im really sorry.

Courtney: Thank you :) My Lp is strange. It all depends on my O day. So I really need to ovulate early (cd11 or 12) or I will get my period before I have time to implant. My cycle is 25 days long since the beginning of this year. Since my O day was Cd15 this cycle I only have a 10 day lp unless by chance of a miracle I get a bfp or simply make it to 14 dpo. My husband has been so good at keeping me calm. He tells me when I stop worrying about it so much it will happen. He of course says this with a big old smile and I just want to choke him....lol

OH, and apple butter??? Mmmm that sounds so yummy!! I hope you stay plenty busy with apple picking apples.

Faith, I love that picture so much! Thanks!

Momma, I have an apointment on November 10th for a heartbeat. Best of luck on your TWW! I find that the second week is the worst when it comes to up and down emotions and anxiety.

Lolz, your post made SO MUCH sense to me. I felt that way each month, too. So sad after I got a BFN, but then thinking, maybe I am still pregnant? But then getting mad at myself for hoping, etc. It's just awful. I'm so sorry. Honestly, when I was younger I NEVER thought I'd be living chunks of my life two weeks at a time. Two weeks until O. Two weeks until test. So glad your cutie kitties were comforting you. It's the best.

Dana, how are you feeling today?

AFM, feeling more symptoms so that's good. Babysat for 6 hours and no nap, so a bit tired and feeling down. I shouldn't be. Maybe hormones. Now I'm thinking, what was I thinking??? Regarding the Etsy thing. I don't feel like spending my evenings in a cold basement using power tools. I want to be in bed! Maybe it'll pass after this first trimester.

Oh yeah, I'm not even seven weeks yet and my belly is HUGE. I wasn't this big until about 19-20 weeks last time. I know it's not the baby, it's just bloat, but it's crazy! I don't know how much longer I can hide it. I seriously have a big round belly!

Btw, I don't want another group. Is it okay if I stay here even though I am not TTC at the moment? Tomorrow is my birthday. I had a rotten 30th last year, so this year will be better. Breakfast with my mom in the morning, lunch with family, something in the evening with hubby. I will spend the day napping, chopping wood and vegging. DH is taking care of DS all day!

Whoz of course you can stay here!! We are glad to have you and be here for you through your pregnancy :) Im glad you are starting to feel some symptoms. Not that I want you to feel crappy but I know it gives you peace of mind.

Faith does your LP not usually stay the same but o day different? usually your lp is consistent and only your o day changes. That is odd. b6 and b12 can help lengthen your LP as well as vitex I think.

Courtney I'm looking forward to ur tests.
Tell me what is this applebutter thing?Is it good?Good for diet!I kinda doubt it lol it has butter in it no?
Faith I love the picture,you two look so in love.
I love all teh photo sharing,you are all so beautiful and the omg the cats,those spoiled spoiled cats look so adorable and it makes me miss my baby Lulu.
Andi one day when you will feel comfortable you will post a picture,we are here for you.
Wish these are the stages to ttc,excitement,terrified,angry,happy,acceptance :))do what your heart tells you.
Fly hru?how is everything going?
Nicky we miss you girl,where are you?
The rest of you I apologize for not being able to do personals for some reason im having difficulties focusing and remembering ur posts is probably just hormones or bcs I have to much on my mnd but i will do better.
Both me and my husband are doing fine,he seems to have accepted the situation and moved on and im incredibly happy for that.
I have been thinking alot about Ivf and further testing but i also know we can't really afford both and the transfer and the testing done right now so is kinda upsetting bcs I do want to try as soon as possible again but also I want more testing done,i don't know,I think it depends on what the doc will say,I trust him.
I have been reading Ivf posts and is incredible to see so many women going trough the same thing or worse than me ,some have become "experts" in making their own Ivf protocol and playing around with the drugs and adding more drugs or changing the dosage,Im impressed by their knowledge and so heartbroken for them,i don't think I can be this way,this strong,go trough enough procedures to come up with my own plan and I don't want to,I admire and respect all of them.
In other news I changed my hair color today bcs I wanted to redo my highlights and I gave myself a trim.i will post a picture tomorrow.

Very odd. I had an OB tell me exactly that recently and I wondered what he was talking about. I don't have a normal lp. Back when I ovulated on Cd16 - 19 it was always 10 or 11 days long but still a 27 to 28 day cycle. I think I will give b6 and b12. I actually did have two 14 day lp earlier this summer. I think I've been stressing too much.

What tracking methods do you use? Vitex lengthened my LP to 16 days. But now I'm down to 13ish days. My weightloss has really affected my cycles.

Oh...I need opinions. Should I stop vitex before my appointment? I know I can't take it at the same time as clomid. Do you think I should stop at CD1? AF should arrive this weekend.
