cycle buddy?

Hey gals,

Just wondering if there is anyone close to me for a cycle buddy.

LOL tacie, but I don't do OPK or HPT. I play it by ear or I should say o pains. We DTD on Saturday night & every other day for the rest of the week (hopefully)

I sooo hope n' pray that you catch that eggie this month!
I don't know how you can survive without OPKs -- I would be lost without 'em as I don't get O pains .. or any sign of Oing other than what it says on the stick.

I used to do them, but became obssessed with them. DH hated it b/c DTD became a chore. I do get O pains & EWCM (which I've had terrific CM this month ) How are you doing?

Awesome for the signs! I hear ya about being a chore sometimes - it's tough to make things fun after awhile.
I should be Oing either this weekend or early next week -- the fertility clinic is closed for vacation I found out and are only reopening on Monday next week. I will try to call in and get an IUI appt (if I O on Mon or Tues) but my instincts are telling me that we're not getting in this month and that we'll have to see if the good ol' fashioned way will work by some miracle. If not, then we're going to try again in Sept. I've had good feelings about Sept for a couple years now and have expressed it repeatedly to DH (LOL!) so hopefully I'm right. I REALLY have good feelings about this month or next month for you catchin that eggie!

Sorry the clinic is on vacation. Hopefully you won't need them next month and will be announcing your BFP this month. Good luck

Tomorrow we start progestrone -- hopefully everything works and things stick ... darn 2WW!

Tacie, that is awesome news. Good luck

I'm doing okay. I have a feeling that this cycle is going to end with a box of tampons

Thanks Tacie, I am so upset. I just can't seem to get pregnant. We have been trying for 6 yrs. I think its about time I give up & realize I wasn't meant to be a mother Sad

Dawn,
I don't believe for one minute that you were not meant to be a mother - nope, don't believe that at all.
I think it does TOTALLY suck that it has not happened yet - but I get goose bumps everytime I talk to you about being a mother, and goose bumps for me are truth bumps.
I don't know how you feel about IUIs and IVF, but have you thought about it? It may be options to consider -- I just hope and pray that you don't give up on things, just maybe have a break (mental break) and talk to your doctor. :bigarmhug:

You ARE meant to be a momma! Smile

Thanks Tacie, I did 3 IUIs (2 on clomid & 1 injectable) all ending in BFNs. My insurance only covered 3 for lifetime, so we are out. I tried to get the doctors to remove the fibroid before trying but they wouldn't.I do believe that played a role in it, but DH has low motility & won't take the vitamins I researched. Plus, he is against doing IVF, so I'm stuck:(

How are you feeling? When do you test?

Hey Dawn,

Well that is just not fair that they made you use up your IUIs and then removed the fibroyd Sad Would you consider trying it again in the future, since your DH is okay with IUIs ? Sorry, I don't mean to pry but I am just hoping that he can see that with the fibroyd removed that there is a chance that IUI would work. You could always crush up the vitamins and put it in his food - LOL!

AFM: Well I've been a whirl wind of activity - from going hot/cold constantly and exhausted to being a MAJORLY moody and biatchy, I feel like I'm stuck between really bad PMS and the flu. I am only at 10dpiui so we'll see - middle of next week I may test. I did not feel this messed up the last two times I got a BFP so I don't know what to make of it all this time....this time I'm no progestrone, so maybe that's part of why I'm feeling the way I am. I go for b/w on the 26th so I may hold out and just do the b/w and not use a HPT - I've not any real motivation to POAS
