Happy Mother's Day to all mothers, mothers to be and mothers wanna bes out there. I need to catch up so I won't try to do personals, which don't post half the time anyway.

Whoz, excited to see your results with clomid! I took a total of 7 rounds. I skipped it the last month but I know it is what got me ovulating and I used soft cups. As for the OPK testing, I really didn't rely on it too much and just bded like crazy!

Danaa, I am sorry I know today is hard. Hugs lady.

I am glad the hpt was negative. I hope to try for a BFP in November.

Danaa:Hugs

Mk: FX for you lady!!

Nickysy: Hope you are doing ok. I imagine you are having the jitters. I pray everything goes well with af, and all the upcoming protocols.

Whoz: Are you taking Clomid yet?

Fly: I can't get softcup to work. My cervix is turned up weirdly. I did use it to get pregnant with my daughter. FX for when you are ready for the next pumpkin.

Momma: Hey, ty. How you had a decent day as well. I spent mind getting the last of my pre AF symptoms. So it is a no go for this cycle. On to more blood work and higher dosage of Clomid.
Did I miss if you are doing a baby shower or not?

Start:How are you doing?

Loz:FX for you!!!!

Hugs EOE baby, banana


I'm just mellowing out till AF starts. Starting to wonder if my body doesn't want me to get pregnant. I do have Chiari but meh, I don't know. I'll be back in a week or so. Got some thinking to do.

Faith I've got to check your chart! I hate using my phone all of the time bc I can't see signatures.

Hello mk! Good to hear from you :)

Loz can't wait to hear an update!!

Whoz looking forward to your cycle this month on clomid. Praying that's all the boost you need!

Star how are you?

Today is our 18th anniversary. We are going to go have a nice dinnner and stay in a hotel tonight! I'm really looking forward to it. I have some weird rash on my neck and chest. It just little red bumps and it doesn't itch. That's one symptom I've never had in pregnancy. I've had spots on my face that get dark when I'm pregnant but that's it. I still don't feel any movement. I did gain 3 lbs this week which I was glad to see. I hope it's not 3 lbs a week from here on out!!

Hope everyone else is doing good :)

Loz: I am hoping you had an uneventful transfer today with no prodding at all. Fxed for a super sticky baby. Btw, I don't remember, are you transferring one or 2 embies?

Courtney: How are you feeling? Any plans for a baby shower?

Danaa: I am sorry you are feeling down today. Hugs. You will always be the beautiful mommy of your boys in heaven. I am glad about your mom trying to help. Thats awesome. My SIL from DHs side, MIL and my parents have all come forward to help us too.

Whoz: Can't say anything about opks. I have never really tried those. Whenever I took clomid, I actually got monitoring done to confirm ovulation. It did not change my regular pattern. O day on cd 11 or 12.

Faith: Sorry about the AFy feeling. Enjoy your thinking week.

Fly: Good to hear from you. And good luck for whenever you plan for a sibling for Remy.

Angela: Thank you for the wishes. And good luck with tww! I am glad that despite all the posting problems you face on the website, you still make an effort to comw here on the group and talk to us. Kudos.

EOE, hello.

AFM, nothing much to report. I went and met my friends 2 week old daughter yesterday. She is really cute and tiny. I bought some clothes for the little one. And a pair of beautiful white colored booties. I really hope I have a girl. Somehow, so many things available in market to deck them up. Clothes for boys can get so monotonous. (Of course, I will be happy with a boy too). Also, DH and I played Borderlands-2 on Xbox 360. Nice split screen game. Other than that, nothing much is happening. Waiting for AF to begin now.

Morning ladies! (Or afternoon/evening for you all I guess!) So the transfer yesterday went really well. She found my cervix right away, it barely hurt, more discomfort than anything else. We got to see our embryo on a screen first and we were in and out in 15 mins. We had 1 grade A blastocyst (my clinic only uses, A, B, C etc, not the full grading system, but she said it was a great embryo.) It wasn't hatching though. Out of the 4 they defrosted, the other 3 were not suitable for refreezing, which is what they expect and why they thaw 4 to begin with. Courtney, my clinic will only transfer 1 embryo at a time, it is their policy because most studies show there is no increase in the success rates but there are a lot of risks to the mother with multiples (particularly for me as I would get gestational diabetes). So I rested for the remainder of the day, watched some comedies (just some comedy specials we have over here, on a service called Stan, which is basically Aussie Netflix. We also played some Diablo 3, and packed up to go house sit for my in-laws for the next few weeks. She just told me business as usual, just no heat packs or hot showers, or heavy exercise, but brisk walking is fine. I am so nervous but trying to stay calm. My mum keeps referring to the embryo as her grandchild which I told her was stressing me out. We've nicknamed it Boba, as in boba Fett (because it was an FET haha). Dana, I have taken your advice and eaten lots of Brazil nuts. I've also been eating a lot of avocado because I read it was good for the uterine lining as well. They want me not to test until next Friday, may 26, but I'm sure I will cave before then as AF is due for me around Wednesday next week. Of course I have already calculated the potential due dates hahahaha.
Nicky, I love borderlands!! Such a fun game and the writing is so funny. You must be feeling a bit anxious waiting for your AF. I got really stressed about it when we did the month of IVF stims and I think it delayed my period. Are you still trying for a BFP in the meantime? I completely understand what you mean. Deep down, I would love to have a girl (both grandparents will already have grandsons and there is just so much cute girl stuff. Plus we already have a name picked out for a girl but not for a boy). It doesn't mean I wouldn't be THRILLED to be having a boy.
Whoz, I would recommend if you're unsure and you often get false positives, while they are more expensive - the clearblue digital is ideal. When you do the first test it measures your baseline oestrogen levels, and you will get high and then peak if you are actually ovulating. The high is the oestrogen and the peak is the LH. People who get the false positives tend to have a high baseline LH and so they get a positive without having high oestrogen, and you can't ovulate without that! Just a tip I have learned with my crazy cycles, unfortunately the cheapies only test LH.
Andi, hope everything is going well. When is your next scan?
Courtney, happy anniversary! 18 years, wow! Have you and Luke been married for 18 years or together for that long? Hope the rash goes away, is your skin any drier than usual?
Faith, good luck with your thinking. I hope your AF symptoms are actually BFP symptoms.
Dana, I can't even imagine how you must be feeling. Just know we are always here for you to vent to! Hugs, lovely.
Angela, what a tough Mother's Day for you but nice to be able to spend it with family. It's nice to hear from you when it lets you post! Good luck in the tww, I'm crossing everything for you.
Fly, how was your first Mother's Day? Did you do anything special?

Hello ladies and thanks for fx. Loz glad that the transfer didn't hurt much and got my fx big time for you that this works the first time. I love yoga and do it every night. It helps with the fibromyalgia that runs in my family. All the women get it. Other than the yoga, I don't take anything for it. All the pain medicine is based on opiates which are highly addictive and I've seen too many addicts in my family. Courtney congrats on the three lb gain. Try not to worry too much, I am sure you will fell movement too. I'm the middle child of five children and loved having all my sibling to play with. Faith hope those are bfp symptoms and not af. Nicksy can't wait till you have your ivf. Danaa it is great your mom wants to help. Andia glad you are at your 12 week point. Star, banana, baby dust, whoz, and fly hello beautiful ladies. So I've been dreaming about babies a lot. Hope that is a great sign. Been reading comic books with dh to pass the time. Nothing else much going on in this tww. Hade a great time cooking out. Dh invited some friends over from work and the worked on making songs together. Hugs baby dust and sticky vibes to all. Hope I didn't miss anyone.

Loz that's great that all went well! I have everything crossed for you!! Just try to enjoy this time and the wait! I know it will seem like a long one. When do you go back to work? We've been married 18 years. We got married when we were 18. Everyone told us we wouldn't make it getting married so young but we have and it just keeps getting better!

Star hope af clears up soon and your new supplements work wonders for you this month!

Mk I get it it not wanting to take opiates. I have addictive tendencies and like I've said before I love pain meds so I stay away unless necessary then I only let dh dispense them and hides them. Better safe than sorry!!

Loz: Nice to hear that the transfer went smoothly. Fxed for a beautiful baby. Girl or Boy, I hope you have a healthy little one. I have def picked up both girls and boys name. The clinic I go to, also has the policy for single embryo transfer, unless there is a specific reason, and multiple transfer is a necessity. And I am def anxious. We leave for my parents place on Sunday. Monday, we have an appointment with doctor. I am expecting AF to show up by Tues. So I will stay there, while DH will be back. He will come back at the time of egg retrieval. We did want to try in the meantime, but with travel for family function and all, didn't really give us too much time. We ended up doing IVI 2-3 times. Thats about it. I didn't exactly follow any days! Had a rough idea about the week, thats all. Loving borderlands so far. Quite comic writing, and still requires skill to play.

Angela: I love yoga too. Simply for the fact that every posture follows a rythm in tandem with breathing. And I get to do some stretching. Good luck with tww. Hopefully, your dreams are a real big sign.

Star: Hey.. Good luck with ovaboost in this cycle.

Courtney: Belated Happy Anniversary! I think i missed the part where you mentioned about it. 18 years. Wow. Me and DH have been married for 7, and together for 11 years. When is your next scan?
