@Yellow.Clover: changed the poll so you can vote for multiple folks. I know that doesn’t help you too much since you already voted. Hope your Friday is going well! Have fun in the city tonight!

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!

@BOGB: Thanks for starting the new thread!
@Yellow.Clover: Ugh, I’m sorry to hear about your less-than-thrilling u/s. I’ve got my FX for your follies 🙂
Post # 9
Sadly the luck did not find me. At least not this round. AF has arrived.
@Yellow.Clover: The appt was fine. My last bloodwork revealed some unrelated health concerns that the dr. is looking into. So it ended up being not too ttc related and may not be ttc related until the other issue is resolved.
Congrats on starting a blog. Saw the update on the 1+ thread – great news! GL with the shot tonight!
@doxielove: I so hope that this is your month!

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.
Cycles/months trying: 8 cycles/8 months
Current CD/DPO: CD4
Chart (if you have one): http://FertilityFriend.com/home/410e4b/
Any known issues? PCOS(?), Short LP
Supplements/medications: Metformin, PN, Vit B complex, B6, Folic Acid
Next steps? Going to give acupuncture a whirl starting on Friday. May also see a naturopath depending on how accupuncture goes on Friday. DH has his SA Monday, then hopefully we will get a referral.
Post # 16
Cycles/months trying: Cycle 11
Current CD/DPO: CD6
Any known issues? polycystic ovaries, not ovulating
Supplements/medications: Clomid 150mg
Next steps? Follicle study on thursday (august 22). if all looks well, i get the Ovidrel shot and an insemination. We decided to really step it up this month…
Poll Answer: Well… I’ll probably end up telling the internet first. You girls and the infertility subreddit. since we are going through so much to get pregnant, i want to be sure it’s gonna stick around before telling anyone. then i’ll tell my parents and sisters.
