Good luck Tasha!!

I might be here with you on the IUI journey next month! If this cycle doesn't work out we are moving on to IUI with injectibles. Anyway, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you get a sweet little baby for Christmas!! Biggrin

Sorry to see so many ladies moving over to December....hopefully we all get a Christmas Miracle!!

I think I'm out for December as well....I'm thinking more like Jan/Feb might be more realistic for me since I am pursuing IVF (hopefully!). Boo! I'm still going to cheer all of you on!! Biggrin

Tasha - It's almost IUI time for you! I hope it is successful and you get a special present this Christmas! Smile

Marie - Of course there is room for you, silly duck Smile but Jina is right, it's not over yet for you!

Kim - You aren't out of the running yet either!

Jina - Thank you Gina, hugs are much appreciated Smile and how exciting that your IVF consultation is coming up soon?

AFM - I'm just kinda sitting around the house today I have horrid cramps that I am trying to get rid of :mad: Speaking of which...I need some thoughts. I put yesterday as cycle day one but now I am thinking today is cycle day one. Yesterday I have a light flow, not heavy like normal but not spotty either. Today I have full blown AF, the flow and the cramps. Would you mark today as CD 1 or 2?

Michelle, hmmm I have considered light flow CD1 when charting. Actually, I think FF just marks it that way. Whoops maybe I need to check that out. Sometimes I wonder how you chart certain stuff, like, if I have heavy flow, but it only lasts say an hour or two, do you still mark that heavy?

Michelle/Jina, I love your optimism ladies. I've lost mine today, but I have been really emotional. (((hugs)))

Tasha, ahhhhhh 2 weeks!!! I can't wait! What are you allergic too? My allergies don't get bad until June/July-ish.

Hugs to you too Marie ! Don't worry hun, I lost my optimism a couple of days ago too Sad But I am feeling much better and I am so thankful I have all of you ladies there to talk to, I really think I would have gone crazy if I didn't have you all! Smile

As for the flow, I just have no idea! I ended up marking today as CD 1, I mean after all I did get the intense cramps today along with the heavy flow? My doctor wants me to come into the office on a cycle day between 10-12 to check my ovulation via vaginal ultrasound. I made the appt yesterday for CD 11, and good thing I did since it may technically be CD 10 now? Ugh, this can be all so confusing some times. :confused:

Awww, sorry you are feeling crummy Tasha! I get allergies year round and have tried every allergy medicine under the sun and have yet to find one that works for me, so I know how you feel. Hope you start feeling better soon!

Michelle, 2 weeks seems like an eternity to me right now!! lol

I hope you are feeling better today....I would consider any kind of flow to be CD1. As long as it's more than just spotting it's AF. My AF always starts out as a really light flow then it's heavy the next day. Do you know how long your luteal phase is normally?

Tasha, I'm keeping everything crossed for you that this is it for you!! Biggrin It's perfectly understandable to be nervous. I'm scared as heck too about my appointment and it's only a consult! I'm sure everything will go smoothly for you. ((HUGS))

I'm sorry you are suffering from allergies....ugh! Those are the worst because they just linger and linger! I hope you are feeling better today!

Marie, Awww, I'm sorry you are feeling so emotional. I was like that too just a week a go or so. For 3 days before AF I bawled my eyes out. It's the freaking hormones I tell ya! It didn't help that I was on progesterone supp. either! :rolleyes:

Oh and about AF, I count it as heavy not by the flow but the overall quantity of tampons/pads I use. If I go through more than 6-8 tampons or so then I consider than heavy. If I only have heavy flow for an hour or so but no more after that I would consider that light/medium. I dunno....I guess everyone's different....it really doesn't matter in the end does it? lol

AFM, I'm getting pretty anxious about my appointment.....2 weeks seems so far away. I'm scared that I'll find out that I'm not a good candidate for IVF or that my insurance will be a pain! Though, my RE suggested it several months ago at our initial consult and didn't seem to think there would be a problem. I should have just gone with it then but I figured we'd try out the meds for a month or two first. Now I feel like I just wasted 2 cycles!

It's hard to say how long my LP is unfortunately Sad I am really irregular so it could be anywhere between 12 days to 15 days. I am hoping that when I go to the infertility specialist that I can get Femara or Clomid. OB/GYN had already brought it up to me once, so I hope I can get it.

Hi Kim! Smile I am reeeeeally hoping you don't get to follow over here permenantly. I think your temp looked good today too. How many days did you say your cycle is, about?

Michelle, I'm hoping for luck over here too. Or at least 'on the crack' since we'll be inbetween two boards. Wink LMAO! Maybe 'the crack' is lucky? Ok, I really made myself giggle there.

Jina, eeee I know two weeks *seems* so long, but to me, it's really close! I'll be praying and sending lots of positive thoughts your way. Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad emotions are fleeting, for the most. Now I know, if I cry during the 2WW, don't get my hopes up. Lol. D@mn you body, stop tricking me!

Tasha, your time is closing in too! Omg that flew by! It seems like it was a month ago when you were talking about this. Every part of me is crossed for you, too.

AFM, I ate a PB cup sundae and felt muuuch better tonight, albeit a little fatter, but I don't care. I'm just excited to get this show on the road. My hubby and I were talking about how crazy TTC is. The more you *try*, the more it doesn't want to work! Hahaha. Oh mother nature, you prankster you.

Always room for you Marie.

I am trying hard to put on a smiley face but I spent most of yesterday crying that AF will be here soon. DS3 started whining mid day and got sent for a nap. When he got up he asked why mommy is allowed to cry and whine without a nap. DH told him that I probably needed one too Sad

Temp dropped. AF should be here tomorrow I think. 30 day cycles are my norm. All I can say is that I hate my body. My bb's hurt so bad, I can't stop crying about everything and poor DH thinks I am losing my mind.

Poop Kim. Sad Well, if AF is coming, it better just show up so you can be a 'crack' buddy with us. Smile
(((HUGS))) for feeling so down/emotional. I can't believe my emotions all week were just due to AF too. As soon as it started, that night I felt so much more myself. Irritable, but less down in the dumps for sure. Here's hoping the same we'll be the case for you.

Michelle, totally giggled again at 'crack' buddies. A whole new meaning to CBs. Biggrin

Tasha, thanks! I'm going to let my RE's office deal with the insurance company...I'm sure they'll know exactly what to say/do (hopefully)!

Michelle, I'm sure the RE won't have any problems prescribing Clomid or Femara. When is your appointment?

Kim, I'm so sorry you're having such a hard time. Like I was telling Marie, I went through the exact same thing. I was so depressed and felt like it would never happen for me. I felt much better once AF arrived but geez....I really really felt so d@mn hopeless for a while there. I hope that AF stays away for you and that you get a nice surprise bfp! ((HUGS))

Marie, Thanks for the positive thoughts! I'm sending a lot of baby dust your way as well.

Haha! Crack Buddies?! You guys are so funny...lol. Omgosh, speaking of crack....I'm craving Oreo Crack Balls now! I certainly did a lot of emotional eating last week. I NEVER do that! I tend to not eat when I'm stressed or depressed so I really was losing my mind...I was pigging out and crying my eyes out. My hubby was kinda getting worried there for a while. Poor guy....:(

I am just hanging out waiting for AF to show up. I would love a surprise BFP, but just not feeling it. I wondered yesterday when I spent the whole day drying but when I saw my temp today... it just doesn't seems likely...

Kim - I'm sorry you are feeling this way hun, big hugs to you. I also went through this, and it definitely is not a good feeling at all. My FX that Af stays away and you get a BFP.

AFM - My RE appointment is first thing in the morning on March 13th. It seems like soooo far away right now!

Thanks guys! It has been a very stressful few weeks so it's probably better that I didn't add TTC into the mix or morning sickness for that matter, not sure I could handle anything more right now.
House hunting up North this past weekend DH kept pointing out which room would make a good baby room so I think he's coming around again already Smile Offer is in now the waiting starts again, hope we can reach a deal quickly and closing would be in a mere 3 and a half weeks so fingers are tightly crossed this goes smoothly!

And I Officially started packing!

I did have a light AF last week which was immediately followed by super stretchy watery EWCM so my body is still all messed up, once we're moved I'm hoping to see the OB up there and get back on the TTC train!

Tasha it would be very ironic for you to get a bfp the day you go sign, are you testing that day?

Kim I'm still holding out hope for you Smile

Jina can't wait to hear about your appointement!

Michelle did you start taking the vit D? has it improved your energy? I think I might try that, been so sluggish lately and it's sso grey and dreary here too.

How sweet of your DH to be pointing out rooms that would be good for baby! Hopefully closing on the house will be quick and easy so you can be in the house you want and back on the TTC train Smile

I haven't started the VIT D yet because my OB/GYN wants to wait until I see the RE beforehand. March 13 couldn't come any slower, that's for sure!

WOOHOO for starting to pack. I bet you get points for that. I can't wait until you get a house and can show us pics. I am keeping my fingers crossed you get a surprise soon!

Um, well, I had two tests that I could see lines in against the light. I am not very optimistic, but totally praying that AF doesn't show tomorrow... I won't buy darn blue tests ever again though. Too hard to see. These are from .... Friday and Saturday. Haven't tested since.
