Winter Wishes 4

Postby faithrock » Thu Dec 29, 2016 5:57 pm

Hi Everyone!!!

I started a new post for us. :welcome:

Whoz/Momma: I really wanted to do the cups Softcup on Amazon. But this cycle I couldn't chuck up the $40.00 for 14. They stopped producing them and selling them in all stores. Some places have them but very few. They are better than the diva cups and so forth. They have a more solid hold on blocking sperm from escaping. I used one to get pregnant with my daughter. I will have budgeted to get one for future cycles if I don't catch the egg this cycle.

Momma: I hope your temp stays up in the morning. The cramping is concerning but could just be from the drinking the night before. FX

Whoz: Do you have any sign O is coming? What do your lines look like on your opks?

Loz: Oh, man, sounds like you have some thing awful. The every day feeling of yuck is no fun. Are you able to take anything? I'm sorry about the bfns. You are still a bit off from AF day so keep testing. :hugs:


AFM: 3 dpo, started my first day of progesterone suppositories and feeling mostly sluggish but otherwise I am good.

Loz I'm sorry the stomach bug got you. All of my kids had it. It was different for each one though. Nothing worse than puking kids! I hope you get to feeling better soon. I'm sorry for the bfns too. Hopefully your dr will get a good plan in action for you.

Faith I hope the progesterone helps you and this is the month for a bfp for you! I'm going to look for the cups or order me some.

Whoz this cycle maybe a little diff be of the Mc. You could I later than normal.

Cramping has once again subsided and my cm has turned to creamy so hopefully I'm in the tww or my body geared to o and just didn't. I called the dr to find out what next months plan is. I'm not a waiter. Lol

I'm here. My hcg is still riding slowly. 166 Today. They want me to let it progress naturally. But I want it to be over with. I'm stopping progesterone tonight so maybe it will get on with it.

Momma: LOL...me either!!! I know the nurses at my OB office are 'ugh' this lady is so annoying..LOL But I don't care . I say if it was them they'd want to know what the plan is or test says as soon as possible too. :wink: I'm glad the cramping stopped. I hope your cm stays creamy. I keep having patches of ewcm. I'm hoping the progesterone will stop it.

Wish: :hugs: I'd stop the progesterone as well. I've never had to naturally let my levels go down. I had to have a shot to get things going(still took 4 weeks to get my period) or d/c. So, hopefully you won't be in limbo waiting for too long. Take it easy and just pamper yourself, hun.

Faith the Softcups are $40 now?! OMG... I have a whole box in my bathroom! I used one on my off cycle of clomid and we conceived but I still kept them lol. I forget if they are in individual packs in the box, I will have to check, but if they are I would certainly mail you some!

Wish, I know how horrible it is to sit and wait for the inevitable when you see it coming. I hope it will be quick. Of course I pray for a miracle to somehow happen, but that is me and I can't help myself. Hugs lady. :hugs:

Andi: I am so glad you are in a better space of mind, and will def keep praying that you have the strength to do so.

Wish: I am sorry its taking this much time. I agree with Andi, i wish there was a way to physically hug you right now. I will pray theres a miracle.

Whoz: Hugs to you too. I am really hoping you get back to normal cycle soon.

Fly: I am hoping that your contractions are under control. I dont even know where to get these cups in India or what are they called. Can you tell me the brand name? I am thinking of procuring them for next to next cycle, if not the coming one.

Danna: I am sorry to hear about your spotting. But I am fxing that its nothing. We are all here waiting with you till Tuesday. I will pray for your sticky bean(s). Its ok to be scared. I would have been for sure.

Courtney: fxing for your o. Hopefully you wont need that doc call for next month.

Faith: I am sorry about your d/c. It sounds painful. I wish nobody has to go through this.

Loz: Sorry about the stomach bug. I am hoping you will feel better soon, and it is indeed the sign of pregnancy. Af, stay away..

Star: Thinking of you.

Angela: Hoping you are doing good too.

AFM, nothing much to report. TWW is on. And I am focusing on my vacation plan to keep myself busy. Last night, I actually sat down to make a list of clothes i wanna carry. I have never done that before. I could always just do last min packing and move on. New Year Eve is tomorrow, and we don't have much plans. DH has a night duty. So pretty much gonna be me going to his hospital workspace. But i know my prayer for 2017. Its for all of us to hold our babies in hand, and complain about all the exhaustion. Wishes have thier way of coming true. Hugs to everyone.

Fly: You are so sweet. The Softscups are expensive when they don't have any in the store nearby. Its only about $40 bucks if you are impatient and want them pronto on Amazon. I know I saw some cheaper ones for $13 for 6 that will get to you in a few days. I think by the time I was ready to order them that was too late for me. I have this feeling if I buy them now I won't need them but if I don't I will. I can't stand the tww. :roll: I'll hold off a bit longer. I will let you know if I need them or not and we can work something out :wink:

Nicky: I'm sorry your dh is working New Years eve night. Mine isn't much of a partier so we will probably be doing much needed house cleaning. Or at least I will HAHAH. My daughter is too young to stay up past 9 even. She starts getting super hyper then drowsy and back to hyper..(gets to be too much for me..)And then she passes out. The cups are called Softcup. They are individually packaged in a box and sold mostly online now. They have diva cups and other menstrual cups online but it really depends on the size you need. Look online at Amazon for menstrual cups and read reviews. I hope you won't need them though!!! FX for this tww. :D Also HAVE fun on your vacation. I love packing and getting ready if I'm going on a true vaca. eeek! I use to be last minute too when I was single and no kids but now...pfft..I have to organize everything down to the underwear for EVERYONE. I kind of let my husband do his but I got over a checklist with him before we go to make sure he didn't forget anything..heheh and he usually does.

Wish: :hugs: will be thinking of you.

Momma: Those cups are awesome. FX you wont need them. I'm tempted to buy some too now. :oops:

Danaa: Yw. How are you feeling? :hugs:

EOE really hope all is well.


AFM: 4dpo and feeling nothing but normal. I had to start temping (bleh) in order to know when I would need to start suppositories. I take suppositories again today after noting a rise in temp yesterday. And the thermometer is still in my mouth. Its just as bad as poas. I don't need to do it every day. Every other day is fine as my temp is pretty normal after O 97.0 them it starts dropping around 8dpo. :( I'm going to try and not temp the remaining of the days. Let either a bfp or AF surprise me....oh yeah, the pee sticks, darn. Hmmm...LOL guess I will not be too surprised.

Hello All,

I am thinking about those cups, Faith and Momma.

Nicky, glad you're going on vacation. Did I miss it? Where are you going?

Lolz, how has work been for you recently? Is it still crazy? Do you at least make some good money???

Star, I was just thinking about you today and really wondering how you are doing. How is the hosue coming? I wish you could share some plans of the house with us.

Faith, I'm with ya. We don't do much for New Year's anymore. We were never lush anyway because we have alcoholism on both sides. We enjoy some wine and beer and sometimes a mixed drink, but we are careful to not over-do it seeing as we are prone to addiction because of our family history.

Dana, how are you feeling? Are you still spotting?

Andi, I'm still thinking of you often.

Wish, I am sad to see you go but I am glad you know what you need to do. We are thinking and praying for you. We are devestated with you.

So, I haven't gotten a positive OPK yet, but I just started getting tons of EWCM for the first time this month AND a dip on my chart. I don't know what to do! Also, I was so lucky with progesterone testing. I had to call my doctors a billion times and I said I didn't want an appointment, just the labs. Healthcare is so expensive. I didn't want to go inand pay $200 for a doctor's visit just to get the labs. Anyway, I finally heard back that one of the midwives would do it and she sent it in the mail. A few days later I got a call from the same practice saying that the other midwife would not give me labs. I felt SO lucky that I got the more obliging midwife FIRST! Phew. Appointment set for Jan 4.

Much love,
