Hi all,

I'll do personals later when I have time. Been extremely depressed to the point where I wasn't able to function for a few days. I think it's the clomid? Anyway, it's bad cuz we have to BD often this next week as not to waste the clomid, but I'm not doing great and DH is feeling the affect.

Anyhow, I have the specialist appointment this afternoon with DH and then have to bring an orphaned baby squirrel to a center for wildlife in Maine, after. He is so tiny and pink--no fur, not even open eyes. I couldn't let him just freeze to death or be eaten by an animal.

BUT

The reason I am posting is to say, LOLZ, congratulations! Wow! What great news. I can't believe it. We have Dana's twin boys, Andi's boy, Courtney's boy and now your BOY. I LOVE having a boy :hb: :hb: :hb: :hb: :hb: :hb: :hb: :hb: And yes, Nicky and Lolz and Dana, everyone says just get through the first two episodes and you'll be obsessed. haha

Hi Guys,

I hope you all enjoyed GoT! I know everyone here was talking about it. I feel like it didn't always come out in the summer? Lolz, I'm watching an Australian show called Offspring. Have you heard of it? So, the main character is supposed to be likable, but she's so indecisive and meek and make crazy choices that you want to scream at her. LIke some nice guy will ask her out and she'll be like, *OMG I love him, but NAH I'll turn him down." Ugh. It's kind of entertaining but she makes all the stupid decisions.

Dana, I am sorry you are having to get drunk again. :-( I am glad you have a lovely husband, and I am glad you can maybe visit your family in August.

Courtney, how's everyone doing?

Nicky, I am sorry you have to wait yet another month. :-(

My appointment sucked. He basically told us about 100 times to do IVF even though we said we had made up our minds. He wouldn't even discuss IUI or injections or meds. He basically ended up saying (after being annoyed with us) that he recommends laproscopy. Period. He basically then said, "good luck having a baby without ivf." :-(

I went home and talked to DH and we are going to to a lap as soon as possible. He bought me a cherry icee (terribly unhealthy, but yum!) and now I'll watch some more annoying Offspring.

Much love to EOE!

this will be quick but I wanted to pop in and say I'm so sorry your Dr was so reluctant to even discuss iui! did he say why you would need ivf and why he wouldn't do iui?im sorry you are so down right now. I know that place all too well and it's so hard! so hugs and prayers to you sweetie. I also agree with Danaa, find a new Dr if you can. he didn't sound like he'd be a good one at all! I wonder if these Dr push ivf just so they can get more$. who referred you too him? do you know anyone who has went to him?

hugs Danaa!

whoz - I suggest getting a second opinion! At the least, find a DR that is giving you better bed side manners. It may be the case that another DR will say not to throw away money at IUI if that approach is not a solution to your particular fertility issue.

Whoz: Gee, sounds like the over paid jerk I saw. He wouldn't listen to me and refused to even do an simple IUI until I paid out of pocket for all of this bloodwork that I 'maybe' needed and THEN made me pay for seeing him after he was almost two hours late calling me back. :x I'd get a second opinion and if anything a HSG. Right now I just added more supplements to my regime. It may take a while but until I have enough cash I'm riding hope like a new pony praying I won't need any tests. (kicks dirt on that doctor...shame on him)

Momma: HUGS to you and your Hubby. Hope you are taking good care of yourself along with hubby.

Danaa: What are you drinking? I had two rootbeers and got smashed. I don't know how, I'm so fat I thought I had more blood in me to handle it. Pffft. Its hard ma, you just take each day one at a time. I hope you are mentally ready for your visit in a month. Some times we just need to fall away from it all then come back stronger. <3

Nickysy: I am on lots of good supplements starting today. I feel confident I will see a change in my fertility. Not just because of the drugs...lol but because I'm working on my attitude about life in general. Time to start looking up no matter. WOW...you ARE going to be busy!! Transfer time is going to be a good break for you! And it will get here with all you have going on. Awww....like Christmas coming a month away.

HUGS EOE

AFM: 2nd or 3rd day of flo. Started numerous supplements. Looking forward to the rest of the summer before it turns to Fall...which I rather like but having my daughter home (on days I don't want to strangle her..HAHA) is nice. She is growing so fast. I at least know who will be babysitting my rainbow baby..hehee.

Hello lovely ladies. Courtney don't feel bad, I had to look GoT up to see what the craz was, and as soon as I saw the first pic pop up I smacked my head and said doe, of course, lol. Loz I do plan on watching it all, some day. Congrats on your baby being a boy. Nickysy I am glad that the doc is looking out for you so that you can have the FET the best time for your body to implant. Danaa sorry that you have to wait till October, hugs. You should visit your family to pass the time. Faith, as soon as we can get the Truck in good enough working order, we should set something up. Whoz your doctor sounds like an a**. You do need to get another one. Someone who will listen to your needs. Fly I hope you are doing well. Andia, Star, Baby, Jade and Banana thing of you ladies. Afm I'm in my fertile time and my mil is gone so we can be as loud as we want lol. I only work 9 hrs next week and am thankful, though it will probably be 12.5 bc they only gave me 4 hrs on truck day and I can't imagine they won't want me for at least 7.5 that day. I am thankful for the shorter week bc my dh and I will have 3 days off in a row together. We haven't had a day off together in tow weeks. That's all except hugs, baby dust, and sticky vibes to us all.

MK: Hi! Sounds great! I know what you mean about getting the truck strong enough for a big journey. We can always meet halfway when the time comes. I've never been up that way before. Heck I think my family would probably be all jelly and want to join me...HAHAH. You're near Rome right?


AFM: I was praying last night because I wasn't sure if I should be on a TTC journey anymore. My answers that I received are that I have everything that I ever asked for right now. I felt a peaceful resolve come over me. I am happy. Of course, when I woke in the morning I could barely remember half of my revelation only that to be happy and satisfied with my family as it is. I thought about it some more this morning. I want to have my husband's own biological child as our daughter is mine and not his biologically. Yet, I think if I dropped it, he would be okay eventually. Or maybe not, he is taking Clomid and might be like " OH NO, we are ttc, cause I'm taking all this crap, so we are making a baby, woman'...HAHAH...nah but I would laugh if he got all puffy like that. He just doesn't get all loud at all. Well anyway, I plan to keep taking my supplements for the time being. Except I feel I need to cut 1 of 7 out...lol. but which one? Strangely after taking the doses yesterday, I can feel my left ovary. I hardly ever feel that thing.

Supplements I am taking. What do y'all think?
Fertiliaid
FertileCM
Ovaboost
Fish Oil
CoQ10
Maca

hi faith! are any of the supplements similar? like the fertilaid and ovaboost? since you bought them i don't think there's any harm in just continuing all of them. it sounds like a good mix of supps.

Angela enjoy your alone time!!

I'm 27 weeks today. horrendous leg cramps have started right before I get out of bed in the morning. they are terrible! Luke is starting to do better slowly. e have slept in our bed the last two nights and I'm much more comfortable! I hate the couch. not much going on here at the moment. I'm getting bigger everywhere not just my belly! I still feel ok about my body though. Im nervous about when the baby comes and no sleep! it will take some getting use to because i love my sleep!!i really need to start preparing for baby but i will probably wait till last minute. e got Bel a big girl bed abd she's doing great! she have gotten out of it once when she's not suppose to. she loves it!i ordered her done new bedding that will be here in a couple days. she loves the cartoon paw patrol and that's what i got for her.

Whoz i hope you are going good and feeling better!

Momma: More water intake for the leg cramps and potassium/bananas. They sound awful. :( I'm happy she likes her big girl bed. You never how they will take. What color is it?
Does he have any stitches you have to keep clean? When does he go back for a check-up?
LOL...oh, yeah, kiss that sleep goodbye for the first 3 or maybe you will luck out. Hugs

Hello all,

Hoping to O soon. My poor DH has been having a hard time finishing in this hot weather and with performance anxiety cuz we're trying for a baby. :-( I want to DTD more often this month to see if we can catch the egg.

Anyway, I'll write more later but we lost power because a downburst (opposite to a tornado but can be just as destructive) came through. A tree hit the house and many trees were completely uprooted. We lost power for a while. BD on a hot, humid day was not very pleasant. haha

Love to all.

hi faith! thanks for the advice but I've tried everything! after 5 pregnancies I figured out it was normal for me in the almost third trimester but I didn't have any lastnight! I was up several times in the night though! Bels bed covers are pink and white mainly with other colors. once I get it in ill take a pic and post. yes Luke has stitches but I don't have to clean them. I was only suppose to change his bandage twice but they didn't stuck so I had to buy new ones abd change daily. he goes back Tuesday door a check up.

Whoz oh that doesn't sound like much fun! I hope you get power again soon! which state do you live in again? it's been 99 and humid here last few days so I can imagine how hot it has been! hope you guys can catch the egg. did you take clomid this month and if so what was your dosage? I think last month since af was late you must've od later. that's so frustrating!

hope EOE is doing good!

I think the baby turned head down yesterday because I started feeling kicks at the top of my belly and I got just an uncomfortable feeling of feeling much bigger. I'm anxious to see next week on ultrasound how he's positioned! I think he's going to be a bigger baby than my last! boys usually are though.
