Today is a rough day, ladies.
I feel so sad and so defeated.
My normal tan/pink tinged CM has started.
I know that IVF is the best way forward & we are ready to dive in (not financially, hello MORE debt) but I just feel sad today.

Sorry you're having a rough day, Beth. I'm glad you have decided you're ready to take the plunge into IVF, emotionally at least. How does it work in terms of insurance coverage? Is it all just totally out of pocket?

I'm feeling deflated too Beth!! All my tests have been faint but not getting darker. Think I'm having a chemical! I'll be praying for you love!

So you ladies all know how I work for a small company and had some issues when I first shared my news. Everything has been fine since that initial s**t storm and everyone is nice and happy for me, though I will be checking in during my leave bc I don't want to be forgotten. Anyways, the owners dad who actually started the company I work for was in today and he stopped me to ask how work is and if I like what I'm currently doing. I moved into more sales/service and travel some when I'm not 3 days from my due date. Then he told me how it's a great position to be in and how there are a lot of opportunities on this side of things, etc and then asked when I'm due. I told him Wednesday and he about fell over. Lol! He says "oh, and you're still here working, not st home feeling sorry for yourself. That's great. I'm so proud of you for being in this position and going out to see your customers and still working". Ha! He's about 83 and he's retired now, his son owns the comp at these days and dad mostly lives in Florida but he drives his proche macan to ohio once a month or so to visit. He's the most adorable little old guy, he can't remember any of the women's names but he knows who we are/what we do here.

Beth: I am sorry you are feeling this way. IVF is a difficult decision, but I am glad you have started to invest in the idea of accepting it. Hugs!

Nikki: I am sorry your tests are not darkening up. Fxed its not a chemical. Sending prayers your way.

Mom: Sounds like an interesting old man. I never understood sales much. Sometimes, little appreciation at work goes a long way. Waiting for Wednesday to meet your little boy.

Beth, Nikki - HUGS.
Mom - so close!!

AFM - I'm on day 3 of taking Clomid this cycle before IUI. I can really feel my ovaries today. I don't recall this the last times I was on Clomid, but we did switch from starting Day 5 to starting Day 3 this time. Hopefully this feeling means its working! GROW GROW GROW! Praying for a smooth IUI.

We are heading to another fertility appointment tomorrow at a different clinic.

Sunshine - FX what you're feeling is a good sign!!!

Today is my due date, and I'm at work right now. I've had two "real" contractions today, more discomfort but I wouldn't say painful, stomach was much tighter. I have a nonstress test today in an hour. I'm seeing the other OB bc mines still on vacation, at this appointment they'll tell me either that they'll let me go to 41w (next Wednesday) or they want to induce today. I don't think they'll induce today though bc he's still very active. Maybe they'll tell me I'm like 3-4cm and he's on his way! A girl can dream...

Well, my dream did not come true and I was still 1cm & not effaced. I saw the other dr yesterday, she is very nice, she offered to strip my membranes. Holy freaking crap I was not expecting how that would feel!!!! She was doing the cervical exam then all the sudden she started moving her hand around aggressively inside my cervix. I was grabbing at the table and like squirming away -ha!! Don't know if it'll do anything, still not crazy contractions but this morning I had some blood in my plug. There's this thing called a mucus plug that sometimes comes out before labor--think vag boogers, but like, HUGE boogers. Also horrifying.

Good morning :)
Nicksy: woohooo! It's time for you to get pregnant :)
How was your recovery from egg retrieval?

Mom: Also I meant to say, take your time with your little guy when he comes. We will be patiently awaiting an update & will try not to bug you!!

Sunshine, Sassa (we miss you!!), Nikki: I hope you are having a good day!

I got in touch with our Doctor and said we're looking into moving forward with IVF. She said we will start with orientation with the nursing team etc.
I felt good about it last night & this morning I am nervous. I am meeting with a friend who went through IVF to hear her thoughts.

Hi everyone! Hope all is well! We've been quiet this week.

Mom- any news!?

AFM: My IUI is tomorrow! I'm nervous. I tested with OPKs and they were progressively getting darker. Last night it was dark, but maybe not as dark as the line. This morning it was super dark and immediately changed, so yay. We BD'd Saturday and Monday, but not yesterday as my doctor said to do it every other day. We will BD tomorrow night too after the procedure in the morning.

FX this is it for me!
