MrsMellyBean: thanks! I was ridiculously excited all day on Saturday. So glad it wasn’t all for nothing! I’m not planning on testing out the trigger. I think watching it fade into a BFN will be too depressing. But, I figure if I test around 15/16DP trigger, I’ll have a pretty good idea.
bijou214: I use the free version and it’s not bad. There are somethings that I could see the paid version being good for (browsing charts like mine, being able to add more notes, etc) but I just don’t want to pay the money for it 🙂
Ohhavok: I’ve never seen one of those before, but it looks interesting!
FreckledFox: it’s cheaper than a full SA that’s for sure. DH’s was almost $200 and of course insurance doesn’t cover it. We haven’t paid for another one since they’ll look at count and motility tomorrow anyway. I just don’t see a point.
jessc27: I’m so sorry for your loss 🙁 I have endo and PCOS too and the combo really sucks sometimes! I hope your rainbow baby comes soon for you!
happy2bee: thanks! I’ve had feelings before that “this is finally it!” but nothing’s ever happened. If you’re concerned, seeing your doctor is definitely a great idea. I’ve been seeing mine from when we started and she’s been encouraging all the way and offered to do more testing for me than she normally would have offered. I’d definitely ask. And have a great time in Europe! That sounds like a perfect distraction. Did you guys get snow this weekend too? I know it’s MI and I should be prepared for this, but seriously, it’s getting old.
MrsR4ever: thank you!
MissCorgi22: don’t be nervous! It is just a talk to see if there’s something else you could be doing/trying. It doesn’t mean you have to jump into anything until you’re ready. I hope it goes well for you!
JMer711: looks lighter than the control to me! I didn’t even know tests like that were a thing.
MrsR4ever: I really dislike condoms! Ugh. We didn’t have to worry about them much because I was on the pill long before we got married. After I went off though, we had to TTA for a couple cycles and were both like “what the crap is this?!” We’ll have to figure out something else for BC after we have a baby because I refuse to do the pill again and I’m not sure how he’ll feel about condoms all the time. Do you have to use them the whole cycle or only during FW?
madger: Sorry for your loss 🙁 I just have a regular BBT from RiteAid (like $8?) that works fine!
natbrown0703: as much as PMDD would suck, at least it’s an answer! I’m sorry you had to go through AF to find that out though 🙁 your weekend sounds like a lot of fun though!
FreckledFox: I’m sorry about the BFN (I think I missed it up until now). 🙁 I know you’ll have a great little brother or sister for Grady soon! I’m starting to think about a garden for this summer. I had zuchini last year (because everyone can grow it my mom said) but that doesn’t apply to me apparently. It totally died without a single zuchini! How big is your garden?
Triggered last night (easiest injection of all of them – it only took us 14 days to figure it out! :P) and IUI tomorrow morning! I know that realistically the first IUI doesn’t usually work, but I’m trying to be as optomistic as I can and realize that we are doing literally everything we can do and we can’t say we didn’t try. DH is SO excited and hopeful that this will finally be it for us.
