@macmint83:  thank you!! I have been feeling more chilled – partly just became resigned to it all, partly trusting that my Naturo was right and it wasn’t going to take much longer, partly realising that stressing about it wasn’t doing me any favours (no, I do NOT think that ‘just relaxing’ is what did it, you should have seen me the morning I ovulated trying to convince hubby to have a quickie while everyone was up and about in the house!!! Not so much relaxed there!!). Definitely recommend the silent BD at the inlaws – makes it feel a bit ‘naughty’ and exciting too – haha!! The Pregnacare sounds promising!!

@Yellow.Clover:  thank you so much my dear friend – your message on my thread put a tear in my eye. I know it’s hard to happy for other people when things are tough in your own life, so I appreciate your congratulations even more πŸ™‚ I’m sure things will work themselves out for you, but can’t imagine how difficult life must seem right now πŸ™

@Mrs. Lox:  haha, thanks lady!! i’ll take multiple congrats πŸ™‚

@nyckitten:  glad to hear you are doing well with your injections, i’m so impressed with ladies who can do this!! I’ll be checking in for an update about your ultrasound πŸ™‚

@lonsk:  i’m sorry you aren’t feeling positive this month – but then that does seem to be a common theme in BFP cycles πŸ™‚

 

AFM, I did another cheapie today and it definitely showed up quite quickly (yesterday it was only a bit more than a shadow on the cheapie) – it’s starting to sink in!!! Neither hubby nor I are getting our hopes TOO high just yet… but we’re starting to talk about ‘when’ rather than ‘if’ πŸ™‚ I love this thread SO much, I can’t believe I might be about to move on….

ETA – early symptoms were cramps that were more ‘pointed’ than usual PMS cramps, strong smelling urine a couple of times, tingly boobs. Yesterday after the BFP (still only 10DPO though) I had stronger pointy cramps, feelings of heat in my boobs, and a few hot flashes, and super sensitive nipples. BUT, overall, nothing too different than usual PMS symptoms.

@hamikay:  Thank you for sharing your symptoms I was just going to ask you about them. I know everyone is different but it is always nice to hear about the first signs. I hope you don’t stray to far from this board, your contributions will be greatly missed.

AFM, I am at work and just felt the first familiar twinge of back pain which is an AF sign. I haven’t felt anxiety yet which is usually my first sign but I’m feeling that bitch is on her way, expecting her on Monday or Tuesday (I was 2 days late last cycle). Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

@hamikay:  Yeah, soon enough you’ll be up every two hours during the night to pee, and it’ll all be for nothing anyway, because temps will be beyond useless.  But I totally get the “cruel joke” suspicion.  I took a pregnancy test last Tuesday, just to be SURE the line is still there, so I can’t scold you too much πŸ˜‰

@SapphireSun:  haha, and what are you, 8 weeks now?? i guess it’s a part of being in this club, we know too much about the risks to be blindly optimistic that everything will be ok. thanks lovely lady πŸ™‚

@hamikay:  Just wanted to congratulate you here too!!!!  Soooo very excited that you get to be another graduate from this group!!!!!!

AFM, our first IUI/injectible cycle was a bust πŸ™  My cycle was only 24 days and AF arrived even though I was on progesterone suppositories.  I think I really Od on CD 10 though so that isn’t completely surpising. I think the timing this month was just off, so I am trying to rationalize that so I won’t be so crushed.  I had an ultrasound on CD 10 on a Friday and the RE said to come back Monday.  Well I had O pains that very night on my right side where my largest follicle was.  When I went back on Monday, that follicle was gone, so we think I Od early.  I still had a follicle on the left side so we triggered and did IUI that day, but I think I missed my best chance.  At least now I know I am likely to O early and plan to be more forceful about how we proceed this month.  Or at least I will ensure we BD more earlier in the cycle.

I watched a programme yesterday on IVF, and the consultant on it said something quite interesting – When man first arrived on earth, they had to procreate quickly. The world may have been full of large predatory animals – dinosaurs, woolly mammoths etc, so they had to reproduce quickly, on the go and with a sense of urgency. So he quite often tells his patients that if visiting the in-laws while ovulating, tell your other half that you need to do it in the house before you leave, and that you are not wearing any underwear, and your man will have the best sperm count possible! 

Always good to have a good argument for when sex has to be done at the in-laws!

@kentuckygirl:  thank you πŸ™‚ oh i’m sorry about your cycle – that is an early O!! no wonder it caught everyone off guard, and I think that is totally the reason it wasn’t successful this time. I’m so impressed with your positive approach to the next cycle – you’ll be completely on top of it this time!!!

@macmint83:  that’s a great argument!!! haha, I haven’t heard that one before, so – more ‘dangerous’ situations for sex, everyone!

@hamikay:  Oh lady, I would love to join you on the pregnancy boards! You’ve been my cycle twin the last few cycles and I’ll miss you!. I can see why you would be hesitant to join, but it is also so very exciting to meet new ladies and share the journey! I am so excited for you and that next step.

@kentuckygirl:  I am so sorry that you missed that follie Frown but hopefully the left one will pull through and cooperate. Despite being saddened about missed opportunity, I commend you on being able to take away the positive; becoming more familiar with your body and O and setting up a plan for next cycle if it comes to that.

@lonsk:  Thanks!  I’m on a new cycle now so hopefully I catch one or more eggs this time around!  

Starting the process for IUI #2 with 225 IUI of Menopur and an Estrogen patch to improve my lining.  This is the cycle that Jenny Renny predicted I would get my BFP, so I am hoping that little extra magic will lead to good things this month!
