Hello Everyone

Danna: I am sorry you are going through this crazy mess of tww!I have no experience dealing with dogs marking their territory. But you really do not need to worry about your weight. You are as ready to be a mom as anyone can ever be! And you will be pretty great at it. Transfer date is almost here.. and heres wishing you a Big Juicy Christmasy BFP. Hugs..

Courtney: Clomid is a funny med. I laughed so hard at the episode of Luke finding you naked. I am hoping this is your cycle. For me clomid in first 2 rounds made me ovulate on cd12. But i generally ovulate early, so i guess it wasnt much of a difference. But it did dry up my CM, which i anyway get less. So i was advised to up my water intake.

Loz: I am very sorry for your meltdown. Hang in there girlie! Hugs.. We are all here. And its bound to happen sometime or the other. Fxing for you this cycle.

Star: Awesome news on 10 fertilized. Thats amazing. Fxing for Tues/Wed to hear the updates.

Andi: Good beta number. You and baby are going to be just fine!

Wish: Fxed for you for this month.

Whoz: Sorry about your BFN. But no counting yourself out till AF shows.I am good now. Thanks. Did have a bit of an episode, but instead of internalizing like i always do, i actually made DH sit in front of me and listen to me jibber jabber for half an hour. It helped. Even though words sounded weird out loud.

Fly: When is the expected date for Remi? I cant see the charts for anyone. Including my own!

AFM, nothing much to report. Enjoyed a lazy sunday. Focussing my energy on planning a week long vacation in January. Its cold here. So planning a beach one. Cant seem to wait now to laze around in sun! Giving me another reason to actually restart my exercise schedule. For some reason, i keep skipping it. Trying to stay determined to continue it this time.

Courtney - Clomid didn’t really effect my cm as much because I barely ever had it. But I did start drinking green tea and eating dairy and that helped to increase it. Also lots of water!

Star - Congrats on the 10 fertilized eggs!! Everything crossed for you sweetie!!

Dana - Thanks! I’m feeling ok, mainly just exhausted. I get a little nauseous but very mild. Lucked out on that so far! And oh my gosh to jack peeing in your bed!

Loz - I’m so sorry you’re having a tough time! I’ve been in that same position soooo many times and what I’ve learned is to accept how I feel and not try to fight it off. What you’re going through is hard and emotional it’s ok to cry, let it out girl! Another thing that helped me is picking up a hobby to keep my mind off things, like knitting. I know it’s so hard to not let your mind wander to the worst. I’m hoping the specialist has some good suggestion for you!

Whoz - that is very strange about the discharge! Did you test again??

AFM - Wanted to pop in here and check up so I don't get too far behind but sorry if I missed anyone. Didn't get my results back yet because I know my nurse left early friday but not too concerned about it. I'll update when I get my results!

Hey everyone. Sorry I've been missing. :oops:
The past week was super busy at my house. I barely had time to stalk even.

Dana: I saw the date on my computer and remembered you have an upcoming transfer. :hugs: Many blessings to you. I've read about the strife trying to block your joy. Step over it and receive the plans God has for you not being swayed by the worries of the weak. Praying for you :hugs:


I've got to get to bed but I will do personals tomorrow though. I still have more to read too. Oh, and I have no clue if I'm pregnant or not. But I will in the next two days at least have an idea. Ok,the zzzzz monster is calling.

Danaa, I will be praying for your little ones to make a nice warm home for the next 9 months!

Andi, Hope you are feeling well and excited to hear your results come in!

I'm a little bummed because my ticker says baby should be head down now at 32 weeks and I am 32 today and baby is breech. I hope she turns soon because I really don't want a c-section. Tomorrow is my first high-risk appointment where we get monitored to see how baby is doing since discovering she has an SUA. Praying everything comes out great and will let you guys know.

Dana, congratulations on the transfer. I know your hormones must be going crazy at the moment and it's easy to say 'relax', less easy to actually do it! We all have things to be grateful for, but they don't invalidate the things we have to complain about! Yes, you are lucky to have IVF, but you are also exhausted and hormonal and that's a very upsetting combination lol, I know. When is your sister arriving?
Nicky, are you thinking a beach somewhere near you, or an overseas holiday? Australia has some of the best beaches in the world... ;) just saying! :) good on you for focusing on the exercise regime. I was doing really well with my running and then I injured my back/hip last month and so I've had to put it on hold. So frustrating after I had finally gotten into a good routine! What sort of workouts do you do?
Andi, I know I should pick up some kind of hobby but I am terrible at all creative things other than writing hahahaha. I am just naturally an obsessive type, trying to stop thinking about everything. Hope everything is going well for you, any symptoms?
Faith, good luck and fx for you this cycle!
Fly, I hope for your sake that bubba turns around, but even if not, it sounds like you're a tough cookie and will get through the c section and days afterwards ok!
Star, any updates?
Whoz, I'm a marketing manager. I have a small team that I manage now, whereas I used to be sort of the 2ic in the team before the restructure. It's just stressful as a lot of what they promised as part of the new role has not happened yet, so I'm doing all this additional workload, without anything actually having been taken off my team yet. And I think sometimes they forget that I actually didn't ask for this new role, I was happy in the old one. Obviously I'm grateful for the opportunity, but my main focus in life (not that they know this) is TTC, and as stress doesn't help that I would have been happy in a less senior, but also less stressful role, for a little while longer. Any updates on your end?
Courtney, I think you had asked about the ferning scope? So with PCOS, it's not so much that the OPKs don't work, they detect the LH surge, but if I don't o on time I would get multiple LH surges each cycle. So I would have to test literally for the entire month to make sure that I got the right o. The ferning scope does the same thing but with oestrogen, but it's just cheaper because I can use the same one every day instead of constantly buying OPKs.
Afm, I have no idea how many DPO I am, if any, my temps are all over the place so it's possible I'm not going to o this cycle at all. But I'm also not sleeping all that well and it's really hot here at the moment so I feel like the heat combined with air conditioning is sending my temps haywire as well. I had some o pains yesterday so hoping it happened.

Lolz, that's really impressive. Well done! I am sorry that you've been "promoted" to more work. I hope it gets sorted out soon. Will it? Or, will you have to say something to your boss eventually?

Dana, how exciting! I am so excited to find out your news in the next week or so.

Andi, how are you feeling? So glad to hear you aren't worried. :-)

Faith, hope you're doing okay. We're both on our wait (for BFP or AF) and I hope we both get our BFP. If not, let's hope we get AF soon so that we can start TTC again asap.

Nicky, Momma, Fly, hello!

AFM, just waiting for AF to show. I feel like I only have 20% chance this time around, but you know how in your heart of hearts you still wish and hope until AF comes? Yeah, that's me.

Would it be too soon after me stopping clomid to get a positive opk? I know you can get false positives if taken too soon but I don't have any experience with trying it and got a positive today two days after stopping clomid.
