Star, that's so frustrating! Are you using a cheapie opk or a clear blue digital? The digis are a lot better if you're like me and you get more than one LH surge, because they identify your personal baseline oestrogen level and they test for both. My previous specialist told me not to waste my time with any that weren't testing for both hormones! Hope you sort it out, CD 30ish is so late to be o-ING, I know that pain.

Well, the site dining on my long post to everyone. I knew I should have just posted it and reviewed the millions of typos later. :roll:

Danaa: Thank you. I am feeling a lil better. Yes, I did ovulate though my right ovary is starting to hurt again right now. What's done is done. All I can do is wait. I like you new plan to get back on track. I recommend FertileCM and Ovaboost. My OB liked them too and told me they were safe to take while ttc along with a good prenatal.

Whoz: I see you have done FertileCM. It really makes a difference in cm. Ovaboost is good too though its suppose to take 3 months to really make a difference. I think along with Clomid it makes a huge impact though. I'm positive both of them helped me this cycle to get my eggs prepped to ovulate. I had a different feeling this cycle too. I had prickly feelings on my ovary which is totally out of character. I guess we will see what happens in 7 days. I did take a break from those supplements for until after I O. So tomorrow I will start them again as they are suppose to help the egg with its implantation ability. Will you be taking it this cycle?

Loz: Fooey on O. When it really matters it always seems to want to do its own thing. HUGS

Momma: I did not notice the mirror. I was just looking for you bump. Some detective I'd make..lol . And yes, I ovulated already. Just waiting on test day.

Star: :roll: What?? That blows. Well, at least you are back home with your sweetie. That in itself is some good medicine. HUGS

HUG EOE sorry if I missed anyone.

AFM: Nada. I'm just doing what I do every cycle. Wondering when I will break and start peeing everything. (kidding) I'm just too numb this time around. Sunday should be long enough of a wait and I'll see what a cheapie test will do along with a real test on Monday. Gosh, I feel like Eeyore.
Nickysy: Have fun with your family. HUGS

Hello EOE,

Fly, how do you feel about not being pregnant?

Faith, I'm so sorry you're sick again! Yes, I really hope the Ovaboost helps. But Gosh, taking seven BIG pills a day along with prenatal and baby aspirin and eveyything else has been annoying. I really hope this works!!

Momma, I didn't notice the mirror either. And I didn't go back to "look" and scrutinize it when you posted about it. ;-)

Nicky, I hope your function goes well! Another wedding? How are you feeling about TTC stuff?

Dana, how are you so good and motivated about dieting? I need to start dieting and exercising more intensely but all i want is comfort which is NOT exercising and dieting and involves eating and sleeping. :-( I had the morning away from my son because he was sick and couldn't go to church. So I went to a store to try on some new clothes. Before I was thinking, oh maybe I'll get pregnant so I won't buy new clothes. Nope. That hasn't happened. Anyway, I tried on so much clothes and I felt gross in how I looked in all the clothes. I didn't buy anything! I am getting a bit of a flabby belly and everything else and I don't think DH likes it very much.

I am glad you are getting a tattoo. We all loved "our" twin boys, too, and miss them already.

Andi, how are you feeling?

AFM, a woman I hardly know at church told me that we have infertility because we have no "joy" in our marriage. Not only is that just not true, it felt condescending and rude. Most people at church are not at all like this--but she is. I tried to be gracious and just smiled and said that things were fine there, but it has bothered me all day. My best friend said, after I told her, why didn't you just punch her? haha. People think they know everything.

Andi, Star, Dana, Wishful, Lolz and Nicky, I am thinking of you especially on mothers day--some of you with babies in heaven, and some of you with babies on the way, and some of you with babies in your hearts. You are and will be wonderful mothers and you are not forgotten on mothers day my lovely ladies.

Whoz omg that woman sounds horrible.
What does she know about infertility and marriage?!
You should've punched her in the face and vagina for speaking such stupidity!!!!!!
Im outraged!!!
Infertility comes in many ways,not matter how happy my marriage is or how great the sex is the fact that my tubes don't work is something that can't be changed,or that someone who has low ovarian reserve or a man with little or abnormal spermies,those cannot be changed...ignorant women!!
As for the dieting thing...believe me I love food and I don't work out:)) my motivation for keeping up with the diet was Ivf,I started in January before my Ivf procedure,I knew that having a healthy diet and losing the extra kilos will help me get better eggs and help with implantation.
Right now I want to lose like 10-15lbs before my next transfer,the diet will help me keep my mind off things and help with hormones balance and with my overall health but believe me when I say is not easy:)) I struggle alot and I do have a day for cheat meals.
I don't know how fast I will lose weight now but before the pregnancy in one month of dieting(no carbs,no sugar,nothing fried,less salt,no unhealthy snacks) basically boring food I would lose like 8-10lbs .
Is not easy losing weight when ur dealing with hormones,fertility drugs and ttc so don't be so hard on urself.

Danaa: :rofl: did you say punch her in the vagina? :rofl: I can't stop laughing my husband is chuckling too. But I can't say that I would blame whoz if she did.

Whoz: No. Just no. You are too kind. I'm with Danaa on vagina punching. She certainly didn't do any spreading of joy herself. People really do need to mind their tongues. Really rehearse them words on themselves before they spew them on others. I don't care if she said it 'kindly' with the best of intentions. You don't frickin blame the person with infertility. As if we aren't already kicking ourselves, you lend a foot to help us? I need to calm down as its bedtime here.
On another note, I'm with you on the BIG pills though. For me its 8 pills a day at different intervals. I'm a procrastinator so you can imagine the pile up at the end of the day. ;)

Fly: Hi there. Yes, its my first month on Clomid. I've only ever taken it once before back in 2006 I believe. How is Remy doing? (did I spell it right?0

Thanks for the well-wishes ladies!
Whoz, I cannot believe what that woman said!! What is wrong with people?! Not only is her comment completely not true, but this is a topic that is non of her business.
I want to apologize if I'm a bit MIA- work is about to really pick up and this is the time when I tend get caught up on the convo. I'll check back in when things calm down, or when I hit the lottery and quit my job. :) Sending lots of positive thoughts and babydust to all!

Hello everyone..

Courtney: Thank you again for the page. You look so pretty with the bump. And so fit and young! That's awesome..

Babydust: Enjoy your work hours, but don't forget to find time for rest! Your body needs it.

Angela: Great to hear from you again. Good luck with catching the egg this month.

Danaa: I love the idea of tattoo.. and i am very happy you are trying to get back on track. I am ridiculously proud of you! When are you planning on next transfer?

Faith: fxing for you! I hope clomid is the only help you need:-)fluttery feelings sound good to me. Probably clomid causing strong ovulation! So yay for that..

Whoz: I totally agree with Danaa about the face and vag punching. What a ridiculous female! No idea what they are talking about. Thank you for the mothers day wishes, and wishing you the same. With all the meds, ttc, drugs etc , its really difficult to loose weight. But, try to to whatever you can. It can't hurt! AFM, I went to attend a ceremony for my nephew (mundan we call it- meant to celebrate the first head shave for the child). Its a big deal here. Had an amazing time, except for relatives constantly asking for my good news. Its just difficult for people to comprehend what we go through. And all I could was smile. They aren't really insensitive or have a malice, just plain ignorant of the situation, as I am not really close to them, and never bothered to share. People close to me know about it, and try to be as co-operative as possible. As far as ttc is concerned, we are both focussing on our plan for IVF next month. Sort of given up on natural trial for me. This month, DH reminded me of fertile days time, but with the function and people at place, we could manage doing intra vaginal syringing.

Fly: How are you and Remy? Were you half expecting to see a positive pregnancy test? I hope you get what you are wishing for.

Loz: Waiting to hear about your transfer and your BFP! Fxed!

Star: i am sorry you missed the timing this month. But I am loving your positive attitude. Praying for your BFP soon..

Andi: I am hoping you are feeling wonderful. How many weeks are you now?

If I missed anyone, I am sorry.

A quick question. My doc put me on folic acid along with CoQ10 supplement this month. For those of you, who have tried it, did this supplement had any side effect for you? For me, its causing mild stomach upset, (sorry about tmi) with bowel movements happening 3-4 times a day, as against my normal once a day. Hopefully with everything in place, we should be able to start our IVF procedure in next cycle. May be, after a long time, I will be excited to see AF. So trying to work on my work schedule accordingly.

Well Hello. I've decided to woman up. I'm in a better place now and I feel like I'm ready to be involved again. I've been following along since I last posted. Dana /hugs



DH finally had his second appointment with the urologist today. Vericole confirmed in his right testical (which apparently is unusual as it's usually on the left). They are recommending Percutaneous embolization of varicocele. My initial google investigation came up with this: "Varicocele embolization is an image-guided procedure that uses a catheter to place a tiny coil and/or embolic fluid in a blood vessel to divert blood flow away from a varicocele. A varicocele is an enlarged and lengthened vein in a man's scrotum. It can cause pain, swelling and infertility." Recovery is 3-5 days, and two weeks without intercourse. DH is having some sperm frozen on Friday. Not totally sure why this was recommended, but I guess it can't hurt. We've been placed on the waiting list for government funded IVF. This is a good thing because DH and I got in a huge fight over his unwillingness to pay for IVF. I'm really hoping that when they say the waitlist is 2 years they are exaggerating. (I think they are). But with the procedure maybe DH will see an increase in his numbers and we'll be able to conceive naturally.




No matter what happens I'm trying to take a more relaxed approach. I only had one session with the therapist, and I'm not entirely sure it was all that helpful. I felt like I was wasting her time. But the one thing I took away from it was that I can only control what's on my end. So I'm trying to get outside more, and I'm drawing again.. I'm still finding it hard to be social. I'm not even sure at this point that it's because of depression, or if isolation has just turned in to a habit that's hard to break. I've also tried to commit to getting healthier and I'm struggling with that as well. I just really like eating guys. DH and I joined a softball team though, so that's a start.
