TWW

I am officially in the TWW. Hoping the next few weeks go quickly! Am going to wait until May 31 to test. Super paranoids about a false positive after the trigger shot.

Anyone else in the TWW?

I am here, but pretty sure I am out for the month we did DTD a few times around O, but I am having pretty strong PMS symptoms, going to possibly order OPKs for next cycle.

I'm 4-7 dpo depending on cross hairs. I have a pap test on the 29th so I'm guessing I'll get AF around then.

So I'm going away for the weekend to an unknown location (DH has planned a surprise weekend away for me). We are most likely flying, and I'm wondering about the progesterone suppositories I'm taking. Can I take them on the plane with me? Should I put it in my checked bags? I'm concerned about them getting too cold and something happening (is cold bad for them?)
Thoughts and or experience? Thanks!

I know minei have been told to keep in the fridge because they melt. I have an hour and a half drive back from my clinic and they have said thats fine. I would maybe keep them in your carry on to keep them cooler than in the cargo hold which might be hotter. Enjoy your weekend away.

Have fun Julie Smile

The packers come today to walk through to see how much stuff we have. This move is getting real now. Then we are headed to the beach for the weekend.

Today was the first sunny day in ages so ds and I started the day out on the patio then went to the park, had coffee then a walk through town to get some lunch. A certain tree is in flower and it attracts all the rainbow lorikeets which delighted ds. I then put 6 litres of poison on the weeds in my driveway. We are heading away to ight to buyh a new lawn mower tomorrow so I can tame my feral yard. It's been such a nice day, I can almost forget about ttc. Ff hasn't updated but pretty sure I am 3dpo. I got to anaturopath next week to talk about trying to naturally addfress this secondary infertility

Have fun Julie!

Today we are having a visit to our new house and meeting with 2 painters for them to give quotes. We are also going to do some measurements so we can figure out where stuff will go.

Wendy the naturopath sounds exciting! I've heard really good things about that kind of help, so I hope it works for you!

Weekend away has been great...we ended up in New York City, saw a broadway show and did lots of sightseeing. It's been nice to not think about the TWW for a few days.

I'm out. Had another 22 day cycle. Is it normal for my cycles to be 22-31 days long? I'm 37 so I always wonder if it is age related. I have to remember to ask when I have my physical later this week.

My train home was delayed 1.5 hours because of a broken down train in front of us. We couldn't get off of the train because we weren't at a station. I was horribly late for daycare. It was a great start to the week.

Either my chart is going triphasic ish or I am getting the stomach bug going around work. I wish I could get excited but I feel pretty awful so I think it's the latter

I'm feeling crampy. I want to say it feels different than normal (more in the front than back) but who knows. I desperately want to test tomorrow but I'm nervous of leftover HCG from the trigger shot so I'll wait until Saturday as instructed by my dr.

Feeling awful still. If this is a bug it sucks. Still feeling off and just felt gaggy again. I think I am 10 dpo tomorrow but don't want to get my hopes up and test just to have another chemical pregnancy

I'm super nervous to test tomorrow. I'm afraid of the disappointment and having to go through another cycle. I continue to feel positive that the way I've been feeling different than previous months, but so much of this is in our heads that I don't trust anything but a pg test. Anyways, I'll update tomorrow morning.

Fingers crossed for a great update Julie.
How are you feeling Toni? Are you testing soon.

Woke up gagging again this morning and 10dpo. Even if this is pregnancy I have never had a successful pregnancy with morning sickness this early. The good news is it's a longer cycle than last month, I had a nine day lp last month

I'll test Monday if AF doesn't show this weekend. I've been restless the last couple nights which is odd for me. Today I've felt like crap. Upset stomach & tired. Which I don't need right now unless its for a good reason lol Cause I have so much to take care of in the next 2wks before the movers show up.

Temp took a huge drop so pretty sure I'm out too.

Sad So sorry about the negative tests.

The doctor is checking my hormones and thyroid to see why my cycles fluctuate. She also found a small lump during the breast exam so I have an ultrasound this week to check it out. I'm 99.9% sure it is just a cyst so I'm not worried about it but every so often I think what if and how it would affect things

Big temp jump this morning butbthere is also blood when I wipe so pretty sure i'm out. The naturopath thinks my issues may be adrenal or thyroid. She doesn't think thyroid is a huge issue if it is even an issue, however said what naturopath consider a normal thyroid result to be vs what doctors take is different

My RE put me on a really low dose of thyroid meds. He said I'm technically in the normal range but wanted to see it a bit faster (I can't actually remember if that's how he described it).

Still waiting for AF but I expect it today. DH and I discussed IUI and are going to consider it for this cycle. The timing just might suck though, as CD14 will probably be Father's Day/my birthday, and not easy to find someone to watch the kids on Father's Day morning! Hopefully he can trigger me a bit early, or maybe DH can give me his goods in a cup...all TBD until I go for Cycle monitoring.

Good luck with the iui. Could you take the kids with you. Hubby will have to go in with his goods first then you will need to wait while they prep it then you go in. For the iui. I am lucky my fertility clinic is ablock behind an awesome park. I have had to take ds to a monitoring appts before though. Af started today, I had a much better lp this mlnth though

I finally get to say I am in the 2WW. Yesterday's OPK was the most positive test I have had naturally since Little man was conceived! It was not a just barely dark enough positive, but a brighter than bright. Little happy dance.

I went for cycle monitoring today and chatted about IUI. Dr said he can trigger me early so that the timing works for is - to do IUI either Friday or Saturday. I'm a little freaked out about the reality of doing this. I was all for it when it was theoretical but now that it's somewhat real I'm feeling overwhelmed.

I also went to see a naturopath yesterday and am going to start acupuncture next week. Hopefully it'll compliment the fertility treatments. So much going on!

Oh acupuncture is really good to do along side fertility treatments. Your first IUI is the hardest I have to say, but it is not much different to the feeling of a pap smear. :goodluck:

All prepped for IUI tomorrow. Had my HCG shot (different kind this time, went in my tummy vs my bum) and have a sterile cup for DH. I was pretty relieved that the dr said DH could give his deposit at home and I could bring it with me - makes life WAY easier. Fingers crossed all goes well tomorrow!

Thanks! It was pretty straightforward/painless. Feeling a little crampy but nothing major. Now to wait...

I am sitting here twiddling my thumbs. I have had some random symptoms, which could all be wishful thinking or because I was getting ready to be sick. I have a fever today, and body aches, just ughhh. Testing Saturday, since I bought dollar store cheapies, really wish I had picked up the FRER.
