@candy08:  Thanks, I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels this way. I am doing acupuncture and am already looking forward to my session on Thursday. I also have a therapy appointment on Friday that should help. I am going to try to focus on staying in the moment as thinking about the future is just too hard right now. If you have any recommendations for meditation, I’d definitely check them out. I have been using hypnosis to help with insomnia and it has relaxed me so I’d hope that meditation would work similarly.

@jen9999:  I did do pgs on that one, since I still had time left to do my “batch” pgs testing.  The place allowed for up to 8 embryos for one price, and they didn’t have to be collected and all sent in at once which was nice so I could see what results were before deciding if I wanted to continue to bank embryos.  After the first mc, we decided to do pgs.Then after the second mc ( transfer of 2, one pgs and one not) we did the endo biopsy test. Unfortunately, even with 9 months and 3 cycles to bank and pgs, we only ended up having 3 to tests.   Though it worked out, they were all pgs normal and one of them is my son, and the last one left was what was transferred last month.   We have 2 more untested which we have to decide what to do with.   I’m totally too old after this baby for anymore.

@piscesinsc:  I like circle and bloom. They have meditation for ttc, iui, egge retrivals, fets, even a pregnancy one! It helped me once i became pregnant bc I still had anxiety for most of the 1st trimester! I hope your acupuncure and therapy sessions help!

So my E2 level is 2541 and another day or 2 to trigger. I’m hopeful this is good news because my total level last cycle was just under 1800. So something is definitely different. I’m praying this our lucky cycle.

I am now going to look into circle and bloom for TTC meditation!  I wasn’t able to get in for accupuncture this month and hadn’t even thought about meditation.  Thank you all who mentioned this as something you do!

I am trying to not get stressed out about BD timing, but it is happening.  My husband is a flight nurse and works out of a hospital 3 hours away (4 days on, 5 off) we real struggle with the timing part of TTC because my fertile week rarely lands on his days off.  This month he left Sunday night and I have yet to get a positive OPK; however, it looks like it will be arriving at any moment.  (I took clomid 3-7 and am currently on CD 15) I am crossing my fingers I can hold the positive OPK off until tomorrow.  I plan on taking tomorrow off of work and taking a road trip to just BD and turn around and come back!  The crazy things we will do when TTC!

What are some things that you would have thought were “crazy” prior to your TTC journey that are now things you have done or are doing just to get that BFP?

@jessig2b:  I’m taking 8 vitamins at huge doses and will be supplementing that regimen with ground herbs from the acupuncturist…I’d slather myself in Royal jelly and lay on an ant hill if I thought that would get me pregnant 😉

@jessig2b:  Good luck!

I distinctly remember the words “I don’t want a child badly enough to go through IVF” coming out of my mouth. I thought it was too expensive and not worth it. Of course this was a few years before we started trying or knew we had an issue.  Oh, to be that naive again…

@jen9999:  That made me chuckle!  I am also taking an abundance of vitamins (even more because my neurologist took me off other meds when we started TTC and put me on a different vitamins for my migraines)…. think the jelly would work?!?! I mean I’m not scoping out my pantry for Royal jelly or dumping out my kid’s ant farm or anything. HAHA

Lines are gone today. Not counting myself out yet (it’s 7dp5dt) but not feeling good about it. 

It just blows my mind that they can’t find anything wrong with me, we placed 2 perfect embryos exactly where they need to be at the exact right timing and I’m STILL not pregnant. I just don’t get it.

@BeepBopB00p:  don’t count yourself out yet! The HCG in your system from the meds may be dropping and the HCG from the implantation may not be high enough yet to test. Give it a few days. I’m crossing everything for you.
