Hey myrtles!
Cat- that's great that you got a pos! Woohoo! Yup, I would do the BD just like you said! I've heard that the most important time is just before you O so that there is sperm already waiting for an egg, looks like you covered that! FX

Mich- hooray for a new plan and maybe some answers, a new plan can make all of the TTC stress exciting again! I truly hope you get some answers and good info.!

Tiff- yuck to family drama :( .. Now you have your own lil family to think about! ;) can't wait to hear about the soon!!! Btw what was the lucky trick for you? Were u on clomid? How long TTC? Sorry for all the questions, I have been lost in the loop for a few months!

Morning Ladies, How are we today? Catty sounds like you might be concerned about only getting 1 opk. No worries, you probably just caught your surge in the middle so if a surge lasts 24 hours, you would get a negative if you are testing every 24 hours. If that makes sense. I think its just fine to get one or two postives depending on when you catch the surge.

Tif, sorry about the Oklahoma drama?! haha Love it. Like W8ing said, now you have to worry about your lil family rather than the bigger part for the time being. My last pregnancy I had to cut some friends out of the picture because they were taking way more than I could provide. Their negativity was causing me grief, so I cut them out while I was pregnant. I was really proud that I could make that choice and follow through. Now I have way less of a problem saying " Hey, you know, if you dont stop being so negative, I am taking a step back untill you can calm down." Family is different but maybe you can draw some strength from my experience.

AFM, things are great, I am back on track for some weightloss. Hopeing to break through a plateaux I have been on for a while, (Lack of focus). I am hoping to break through that. With DH being gone, its really easy to cook just for Kaden and I. Appointment tomorrow. I have my list of questions and I think I am ready. I will definatly let you all know how it goes on Thursday as I wont be back at work on Wednesday and that is litterally the only time I can get on the computer. haha

Love you guys xoxox, hope you all have a great day/.

Cat, I agree with Mich on the one day OPK. There were two months that I didn't get a postive OPK except once. I would just be very happy that you saw it and now you know. They (whoever they are) say you can completely not get any OPK due to timing and still O..so no worries. You are doing exactly what you are supposed to be doing :).

W8, this is the first time I have actually seen your post...strange...the website was all weird there for a little bit. The things that we did different last cycle was BD six days in a row before O and day after positive OPK, used preseed everytime, laid on my stomach with hips in air everytime. I did the stomach thing just because I remembered a GYN a long time ago telling me my uterus was tilted and they always have a hard time finding it...so I heard some other girl on here say that she was told to lay on her stomach for a funny turned uterus. I do not know if any of these things helped or was the key or not, but it is what we did differently :).

Mich, YAY for the appt tomorrow..so EXCITED!!! We will be looking forward to Thursday update. Thanks for sharing your story about your friends and your smart choice to remove yourself from situation. I'm contemplating staying away from family issues/drama for a little while longer to avoid the stress. I am re-evalutaing on a daily basis whether to go to OKC or not. Also excited about your new focus on weight loss..good for you!!!

Oh I have been thinking of them too Cat! And Dewy also! I hope they are all well! I'm sorry about the way your feeling, it's such a bummer, really, and even though you know it's the meds it's still hard to perk up. :( I didn't really realize how bad it effected me until I looked back after I stopped and felt "normal" again. I guess the only way to get through is to be hopeful that it's going to bring you your miracle! I am wondering what the femara will make me feel like, I hope not an emotional mess while DH is here for that short time!

Tiff- can't wait to here your progress, try not to stress too much, though I can only imagine what your nerves must be like! Thank you for your info.! I also have a tilted uterus and will try it! I've tried pressed before too but maybe will try again! So you put pillows under your hips and lay on your belly?!

Mich- how you holding up girlie?!

w8, yep..pillow rolled up under hips and laid on my stomach for as long as I can. It will begin to hurt your back after a few minutes. Then I would take out pillow and just lay flat on my stomach and try to go to sleep. I have hard femara actually doesn't cause side effects like Clomid...I am hopeful for you that it is the KEY to success :)!

Hey all, you know its been so darn busy at work lately that the days have just been flying bye and today thank goodness for that. Anxious about my appointment, kind of expecting him to say all is good, you should lose so more weight while you are trying to concieve and thats really it. Not really sure. I am down 2 lbs since Saturday so I am excited about that. I am hopefully going to break through to my lowest weight in years, hopeing to get into that next weight bracket. Its really easy to do well on my diet with DH being away. I can cook any way I want to. hahah!!! Last week I lost 3.5, this week I am on track to maybe lose 3.5lbs, hopefully I can keep this momentum up.
I wonder how our lost girls are doing... its been a while. I hope they are doing well. Miss them so.

Catty, I hope you are feeling better, must be the hormones, I know when I ovulate, lately, I have been just a sack of tears. its terrible, but good all at the same time.

Will post to you all tomorrow when I have more to tell you and I need to stop rambling...... Tiff, sorry you are feeling yuck, very excited to hear about your Sono!

Back from my appointment, and excited. Turns out All is GREAT. I had some scar tissue from my C Section with DS on my left tube and Ovary, however my guy was able to remove it. They flushed both tubes, both were open and good. No cyst or anything on my tube as they had suspected, it was the scar tissue build up. He did the drilling and the D & C biopsy came back completely clear. So I have 3 months in this window of opportunity from the drilling. So far I have ovulated, and that was a very good sign. He has a system of when to BD after the ovulation test turns positive, however its not the same as others I have heard. I guess I will just do what feels true to me and I suppose we just give it a try. :)

Catty, I hope the Guiness helps with the Clomid Crazies!!! Up .5 this morning.....grrrr.
