@lonsk: I’m sorry hun, I’m sure he’ll come back around soon. Have you asked him why he changed his mind? Do you think that it’s becoming too emotional for him to be let down every month? How are you preventing, BC? Sorry if you’ve said it before, it’s Monday and my memory is shot πŸ˜‰ Is it possible to try NTNP? That way he doesn’t have to know when it’s fertile time, etc. Then maybe a few months down the road he’ll decide to start back with the fertility clinic? *hugs*

I love your names by they way! Love Harper Peri, also like Grier. Your middle school list isn’t that bad..lol…you should see mine! Bahaha.

@HopefulForLittleOne: Love Holden! Very nice, profound name! I prefer unique names as well. Back when, I would try make up names because I didn’t want my children with common names. Now I just say forget it. The names we’ve chosen aren’t very popular, the girls name is starting to become popular and I’m scared that by the time we’d get to use it, it will be over used πŸ™ 

 

Since we’re on the name kick, I’ll share ours. I chose the girls name: Adelynn Rae and DH has chosen the boys name, which I’m not too happy about. Sadly, I don’t think there’s any negotiation on this; he just won’t budge. Walker Lee  – See..terrible. πŸ™  My choice would’ve been Anderson Lee, I love Andy for short. Addy and Andy. Oh well, guess we gotta get pregnant first! πŸ˜‰

@nyckitten: So sorry for the BFN hun, praying that it’s just too early! *hugs* Glad to hear the wedding was good, hope you were able to enjoy it. I still have my FX!

@HopefulForLittleOne:  I’m glad you didn’t test yesterday and so happy you had a nice anniversary — it sounds like a lovely day. So sorry about your BFN this morning…I was really unhappy when I saw your post.  I’m also hoping maybe it’s just too early for the Wondfo. Sounds like you’re mentally preparing for the worst (very smart of you to ask that the mean nurse from the clinic didn’t break the news…that’s what happened to me and it was bad)…but I hope that you still have some hope.  I have read stories online of people who didn’t test positive until 7 or 8 dpt. 

AFM, I also had a BFN this morning at 6dp5-6dt. Also am hoping that maybe it’s too early but preparing for the worst.  Ugh.  This is my third cycle in a row and I don’t know if I can handle another one right now.

@HopefulForLittleOne:  p.s.  even if it’s bad news remember that you have some great frosties saved away!  And the frozen cycles are quite a bit easier than the full initial IVF cycle in my opinion. I’m still keeping my FX for this cycle though.

@HopefulForLittleOne:  Thanks for posting that – that’s reassuring.  And so nice that your doc e-mails you like that.  Well, we will see what the next few days bring!

Sorry not to be more responsive here — new job started today yet I am still trying to finish a bunch of projects from the old job, so it’s a bit hard to keep my head above water.

This afternoon I flipped backwards on my chair (dumb!), landing on the ground. Hoping it didn’t shake up anything too badly. It wasn’t painful or anything though so I’m thinking / hoping probably it’s not a big deal.

@Yellow.Clover:  We talked yesterday and DH said he is open to TTC when we are back on solid ground, which we are working on and have been great since Mother-In-Law left. FX it lasts. We had a lot of stress and things are slowly returning to normal. At least I know that he hasn’t completely shut down, I feel much better. My thoughts are returning to the fertility clinic at the end of the summer. We haven’t been using any BC, Too Much Information but he’s been using the withdrawl method and damnit he has good control, no oops yet! haha! Obviously want to be in a good place relationship wise before a baby enters our lives

I would love to see your list (hint, hint Wink) if you’re willing to share!. Walker isn’t bad, it’s kind of cute.

@nyckitten:  Too Early, Too Early TOO EARLY!!!! I can’t wait for the blood draws, it must be agony waiting for you guys. I love that HopefulForLittleOne’s doctor emailed such reassuring information about cheapies and hCG levels.

@lonsk: That’s wonderful news! Now, just change the locks, move, whatever you have to do to keep Mother-In-Law from coming back! πŸ˜‰ Kidding of course!

And you’re just being nice! Thank you though. I guess it’ll have to grow on me πŸ™  I’d have to find the list, but the one I can remember was my favorite girl name at the time, again I made this up, this is embarrassing, Raelannah. Bahaha, what was I thinking? That was before Rhianna was out, when she came out I remember thinking people would think I named my kid after her. Thank God I didn’t get pregnant back then! Wow. I’m still keeping the Rae. DH’s Groomsmen and Mother’s middle names both have the -ae at the end. Both first letters are different…Don’t want to say what they are for privacy, but think “country” names. So I decided to keep the -ae alive. πŸ™‚

@HopefulForLittleOne: There’s still hope, as your doctor said. I’ve never been very fond of the wondfo’s anyway. Keep your head up and stay positive! And,

@nyckitten: Sorry to hear you fell backwards in your chair. I’m sure everything is probably okay, I’ve heard of people doing much worse and continue to have a healthy pregnancy. *hugs*

So, I helped DH push mow the lawn last night. Ugh. Again, we live on a mountain so that yard is no joke! Is it bad that I’m wishing now, more than ever to get pregnant so I don’t have to mow the lawn again?? My hands feel like they’re bruised from the vibration of the mower!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

@HopefulForLittleOne:  There is one hospital where she lives that has not been able to help her, in fact they have made several blunders so she finally got into specialists here. So unfortunately she will be back. Thank you! The place I am in feels so good, I am much happier! Still sending positive vibes your way!

@Yellow.Clover:  I’d love to be able to hide from MIL!!!. Raelannah?! – YIKES! I’m thinking it is a good thing you out grew that name! (I had Nigel on the list! -ugh! no offense to anyone with or thinking of using that name) I know several girls with the middle name Rae, I love it and it flows well with so many names. I hear ya on wanting to get pregnant to avoid mowing the lawn, I regularly come up with chores I’d like to be KU in order to avoid!

DH was alone with our houseguest(MOH and 2 kids) last night while I was at work got some insight onto where he was coming from, he mentioned to her how hard it is when guys joke “Do you need help with that?, I could give you a hand” when they find out we don’t have children and/or TTC. He’s heard it a lot. Nice to get insight into some of his struggles, reinforces we are not alone in the emotions of TTC

@HopefulForLittleOne:  Thinking of you and really hoping for the best tomorrow.  Your pep talk is all logical — makes a lot of sense.  I hope this is it for you, but if not you guys are strong, and you’ve got those frosties and a good plan for moving forward if this isn’t it.  And you have some truly remarkable health insurance coverage!  FX.

@lonsk:  It is nice to know that our husband’s feel some emotions and are thinking about all of this too.  So hard sometimes that they express it so differently.

@Yellow.Clover:  My favorite pregnancy chore excuse will be cleaning out the litterbox (now that’s something you really aren’t supposed to do while pregnant!).  During my IVF cycles I also don’t have to do litterbox duty (in truth, DH does it most of the time anyway) and get out of most of the heavy work and cleaning around the house!  And also have a break from the gym, though I actually really wish I could be at the gym right now or at least doing some yoga!

This morning I tested again (I can’t help it!)…BFN.  Will keep testing until my beta, I suppose.  The good news is with my new job it looks like I can choose a health insurance plan that will cover up to $10,000 in IVF costs…a little less than one cycle, but it’s still better than my last coverage which was none!
