Our new thread!!

I'm off to the Orthopedic specialist today as my knee isn't getting any better. I'm hoping he doesn't want to do x-rays, since I cannot have them right now!! This is nuts!

Hope that knee feels better soon and the doc doesn't think there is anything wrong. Just hope it is all muscular or soft tissue.

I just came from my Oral Surgeon and he wants to biopsy a section of my tongue AGAIN! I just had it done in November but he missed some of it. I was like well you are going to have to do it on my two week break of conceiving because I am not doing this again without pain meds.

I am suppose to test tomorrow but realized I will only be 9 dpiui. May be a bit early but I am going to anyway....

Wannbmommee-Welcome! Good luck with your orientation!

Fittblonde-Sorry to hear about your tongue issue...a tongue biopsy doesn't sound fun at all!

Hthr-Hi!

AFM- well basically the Dr said it appears I have a partial tear of the Medial Ligament! Fantastic! Nothing really to do except wait for the pain to go away! I can't get pregnant and now I can't play derby; I'm convinced, God hates me! Not a good day in Julie land.

Welcome wannabmommee...I feel like we are somewhat veterns here in the IUI world...LOL

Hthr....how are you doing?

Julie...that really sux! Can't believe that happened. No, no...positive energy. Think good and happy thoughts about getting pregnant. Persistence is key here. It will happen for all of us.

Maybe getting pregnant is the same as meeting the man of your dreams...when you least expect it.....LOL!!!

smurfbaby-welcome back and good luck:)

I keep forgetting to ask-has anyone heard about fertile elephants? My coworker swears that if you put an elephant statue or figure of some type in your room that you will get pregnant. She says that she knows three different people who had fertility problems that got pregnant with an elephant in the room:) AND one lady had two elephant statues and got pregnant with twins. I now have an elephant statue on my nightstand and it has two elephants. I guess the elephants trunks have to be UP.

sounds crazy, but at this point i'll try anything:)

Smurfbaby...good luck this month!

Hthr... Yes I have heard of the fertile elephant. When I was on vacation last year in cabo the cleaning ladies kept leaving me elephants made out of towels. They must have seen my opk's and chart sitting out!! Lol

Julie...I agree. Maybe this is a sign from the Universe that this is YOUR month! I'm keeping everything crossed for you.

I tested this morning and it was BFN but only 9 dpiui the second one that is. I won't count myself out until 11 dpiui.

Julie...I LOVE your dream!!! I was expecting to see a positive this morning. I just have a feeling but hope it's not wishful thinking.

Snap out of the funk! Well what you need is a positive this month and that will change your mood :)

Fittblonde-I'm trying to stay postive; however, my 44th birthday is exactly one month away and that pretty much seals the deal for me. I've been doing this for so long that I'm rapidly losing all hope. I hate feeling this way :roll:

thanks for all the warm welcomes! This thread goes fast! I like that! lol

I had my IUI orientation today..I had done one IUI cycle with an OB/GYN a few years back but it never took- they way my new doc office is handling this is very professional and different! So I am not going on Chlomid- it starts with an "L" and then going in for u/s and then I believe ovidrel is the trigger, right? Then IUI and progesterone supplements and then mandatory blood test 2 weeks after. I'm excited but scared at the same time because I know IUI is not 100% for sure. I just wish there was something that was for sure :(

hthr- i have never heard of the elephant..but I am willing to try anything at this point...might have to go out and get me a little trinket or something of an elephant!

Thank you alll for the warm welcomes! I'm excited to become part of this group! I hope soon I can start all individual greetings as I read through!

Fittblonde-Just wanted to say that along with dreaming you got your BFP, I dreamt that my DH got an interview. He's had a heck of a time because of his salary level...anyway...I told him this morning before I left for work..."I dreamt you got an interview..today is your day"...guess what? I just got a phone call from him...and he got an interview!! This is YOUR month dear!! I just know it!!
