Found you!

I've been wondering where everyone went. I'm always on the tail end and this cycle is no exception. Not entirely sure when I o'd this time either. I had solid crosshairs on cd 17, but then they moved to dashed lines on cd 19 after more post-o temps. I'm in the 10-12 dpo range. My temp has been dropping at 12 dpo and it didn't this morning so I'm thinking I'm 10 or 11 dpo. Who knows. Not really feeling hopeful about getting pg on our own, but we don't plan to go back to the RE until we hit a new Flex Plan year on July 1 (we'll be paying OOP). We're thinking of going for a consult and to see what tests we need to repeat before then since it's been a couple of years, but we can't afford to do any more than that before then. The TTC 0-24 mo board is dead so I'm just board hopping with everyone for now.

Hi Beth!
I was out entirely for a bit, needed to regroup for a while and once November started to fill with BFPs it just got harder. I'm trying to get into my doc here before we move because they won't take my request for a referral to the new OB up North over the phone :dry:
It sucks that you have to wait until after July1st but I guess that gives you more time BFing right? Has your DS started to wean at all yet?

I missed you, Crystal! Is DH on board again?

Still bf'ing and DS doesn't seem to have any plans to self-wean. Our pediatrician is very supportive of bf'ing until 2 yrs. That's the norm in her culture. So, our game plan is to continue until at least 2 yrs. There's that little part of me that keeps thinking a miracle might be possible because I've watched others from the IVF board go on to get pg naturally with #2. My DH says I over think things and worry too much. I think he has memory loss.

I think he is. When we were house hunting he kept pointing out 'baby rooms' in each house. He's a little less stressed these days since things are moving along quickly with the move and he's settling nicely into his new role at work. I'm not bringing up trying again until after we're settled. We've already agreed that I will see the doc ASAP so tests can be done and a plan put in place so once 'we' decide it's time we can simply move forward. Not that I'm not still hoping and praying for a miracle in the mean time... Wink

Hi Beth,

Hopefully you won't he have to move over to December....fingers crossed for a bfp. You never know right? I've also heard a lot stories of women conceiving on their own after ivf. July is coming up pretty soon! How exciting! I hope your ttc journey is a bit shorter and easier this time around! Biggrin

Helllooooooo Beth. Smile I hope you don't have to follow over either. I'll have to chart stalk now as soon as I'm done typing this. Yay for the great BFing you're doing btw. My DS2 BFed until a month before 2.

Amanda's still over in the Nov 2ww, too. I know she's 13 dpo because I was just over there. Not sure if I'm 11 or 13 dpo. Looks like my temp might be starting to drop and I got a BFN on my last IC. Just waiting to see if/when af arrives now.

Marie, I don't know anyone IRL who is still nursing a toddler. My sister has 5 kids and just set a record with her 5th when she weaned her at 15 months.

I keep hoping we have a month where everyone gets a BFP so we can stay on a BB together. Glad we've been having some grads every month, but it'd be nice if we could all just settle down!
