For fun: What is your holiday wish for this year (besides a little one, of course!)?

I’ve been working toward a mid cycle promotion at work, we don’t often get promoted mid cycle but I think it might happen. It would really help my secret goal of title and salary before my 30th birthday so fingerrs crossed.

Hi Bees, This is my first post in this group πŸ™ Hoping it’s my last (and everyone else’s as well!). I’m dealing with secondary infertility (unknown reason) which has sucked. I find it especially hard over the holidays so December will be a bit tough for me I think.

Usual Cycle Length: 28 days

Ovulation/Procedure (and what kind) Date: November 29th

POAS/Beta Date: December 13th

BFP Plan (BD Timing, supplements, charting, prenatals, etc.): charting, BD ED this time, prenatals, opk’s

Trying anything new this month?: Nothing new unfortunately. Waiting to see my fertility specialist though so I think next cycle I’ll have some new options

For fun: What is your holiday wish for this year (besides a little one, of course!)? Cheesy, but good health for all my family! And that my Grandma makes cherry pie for me.

tulipdazey :  I’m trying to put zero stock in the trigger shot because that would really be too good to be true. 

We’re doing a sperm analysis just to be sure it’s not both of us, some gentic testing and will get started on clomid, trigger shot and thyroid medication for the next couple of months, all monitored. 

We’ll see what happens!

We’re hosting Christmas this year for my parents and my in-laws may come in town for a few days too. They get along well, but we’ve never attempted a holiday with both sets of parents, so it has me a little nervous!

For fun: What is your holiday wish for this year (besides a little one, of course!)? I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, and to be honest I’m still not sure. I guess my holiday wish would be for me to be able to feel some hope again. Lately I’ve just been feeling extremely hopeless.

tulipdazey :  Did you use OPK’s at all? But I totally agree it looks like you could have O’ed later based on your temps.
