    WB has ate my post two times now, let’s see if the third time is a charm?

    @BOGB: Thanks for starting the thread!! Hope the luck finds you! How did your appointment go? Have you gone yet?

    Well, I guess I should share here too: Cross posted from 1+

    AFM: Well…u/s didn’t go as good as I had hoped. The doctor doing the u/s (someone I’ve never even seen there) didn’t seem like she knew what she was doing. She couldn’t find my ovaries – okay, I guess it’s to be expected, the couldn’t find lefty last time, guess because I’m overweight – But she just seemed a little out of it, or like she was new. Of course, if she was new it’s okay I understand everyone has to start somewhere, I just sometimes worry that they aren’t finding all that they need to. So, it appeared that I had one follie on my right ovary around 14mm, and 3 follies on my left all around 12mm. Soo, as it stands right now (which could change after blood results) I have to do another 150 of gonal-f tonight (and of course I have plans to go to DC tonight, so it looks like I get to inject myself – Joy).  

    I’m just a little confused as to why the last time I was only on 50mg Clomid and 75 Gonal and I was ready by now. This time I was on 100mg Clomid and 150 Gonal and I’m not ready, I don’t even know if I’m close to being ready? I’m worried because we leave to go out of town on Wednesday. I go back for monitoring on Sunday, if everyone can please keep their fingers crossed that on Sunday my follies are ready for trigger.

    Also, I started a blog. Hubby actually posted it on FB! I was a little upset by it, but hey, I figure there’s no need to hide it. If anyone would like the link PM me and I’ll be happy to share. I’m not sure how much I’ll actually keep up with it, but hey it’s a start.

    Hope everyone has a great Friday and a wonderful weekend ahead!

    ROLL   CALL!

    Cycles/months trying:  7 cycles – 7 months

    Current CD/DPO:  CD9 

    Chart (if you have one):    http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/ShellVee

    Any known issues?  none known yet – can’t start intervention til 12 months. Maybe work-related stress? Thou it doesn’t delay or stop O (as far as I can tell so maybe not?), also I’m still within my year after stopping depo and apparently that can prevent pregnancy until it completely leaves my system?? I dunno all guesswork currently…

    Supplements/medications:  just pre-natals and DH is on Menevit.

    Next steps? Sneakily add a few months to our TTC time line and go see a Dr – but not til Xmas time so I’ll be around 10 – 11 cycles then anyway (I’ve had a few 26 day cycles so it seems I get about 14 cycles in a year – that’s depressingly a lot of AF – on a positive thou I guess it’s 14 chances a year too)

    Poll response: We have already said we’d tell the parents on the same day so one isn’t in the know first – but maybe after we’ve had a few days with our “little secret” hehe. Then I’d tell my bestie (she told me the day she POAS before she told her mum hehe) at some stage – prob within a week of parents knowing. I also HAVE to tell some people at work (if its this year) because I work with volatile children and my assistants would step in if a situation become too dangerous for me being pg (ie restraining) – next year I’m going to substitute instead which will be safer and less stressful!

    I had planned to take a break from the boards but I say that every month when AF shows up. I just made a deal with myself to stick to the 6+ board only and avoid the POAS boards since those boards are the ones that do me in stress-wise.
