@sweetkate: Good thinking! That one was on about page 19 and not sure if there is a limit.

Its been awhile since I’ve posted bc I’ve been trying not to think so much about TTC but I’ve been reading still and praying for everyone. I am officially in my 2WW of my 3rd and final round of Clomid but I don’t feel any hope for this one and actually have an appt with the RE on 3/9/11, the day I am suppose to start (but I have been coming early with each round of Clomid). Darling Husband and I were only able to BD once, this entire fertile period, on my +opk day bc I was so sick and then he become severly ill. Plus I messed my pills up and missed a day, but took it the next. Still got my positive OPK and felt the ovulation pain but won’t know for sure if it still worked until Friday when I get my progesterone levels checked.

I am not sure if the RE will be able to do anyting right away so we will probably take this month off but we will see. We defintely sat down and talked at length and Darling Husband and I decided how far we are willing to go. We will stop when IVF is our only option. We worked too hard to get where we are financially to spend so much of our savings towards that when there is no gaurantee.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Oh man this Metformin is making me so sick.  My stomach is constantly bubbling.  I feel so weak too.  Tell me it gets better!!!  I am on two pills a day, morning and evening with food.  Saturday I begin taking 3 pills.  At what point do I call the RE and say enough??

I’m almost a week into my two week course of progesterone to get my period on the way- I was going on day 40-something and I think my doctor was tired of reading my complaining emails.  I have a consult with the doctor on March 18th (couldn’t get in earlier, but I’m calling to check and see if he has any cancellations) to get my on Clomid.  I’m not showing any ovulation signs except for positive OPKs, and even those have disappeared since November.  On top of it, I just found out that my husband’s friend just knocked up his girlfriend on accident.  Bleh.

Hi ladies!  I have good news, kind of.  I have a period – on my own – on time!!!!  It’s literally only been 32 days since my last one!  I am so excited that I had one without any medical help, and in a timely manner!  The last time I even had one on my own w/o help was when I went off BCP over a year ago, and those were like 44 days apart.  So, things could be looking up!  Darling Husband is going to his doctor today to discuss next steps in fixing him. 

Good luck with everything girls!!

Heathaah: I PM you about this thread, so don’t worry about it!!!! A ski trip would be so fun!!! I am with Sweetkate though, walking in the snow is dangerous enough for me!

Candy Nee: YAY! That is so exciting!!!!! Funny how getting a reg period on time can make you so happy 🙂 I hope your Darling Husband appt goes well and everything gets fixed soon.

I got this email today at work, asking to donate some of our vacation time to this lady that works in our company. Here is part of the email:

Corrisa B works in the AR department at the Administrative office.  Recently, she had an emergency c-section for twin girls.  This resulted in the birth of one twin.  Unfortunately, due to major unforeseen complications, she suffered the loss of the other twin.

If I had some vacation time, I would give it to her in a heartbeat! I can’t imagine how she is feeling. Makes me so sad.

@heathaah, I had some serious stomach issues when I started on the Metformin, but as long as I eat enough when I take them, I’m OK now. Have you tried upping your food intake at breakfast and dinner and maybe eating a very light lunch?

Update:  DH’s appointment went pretty good.  All his blood work came back fine – hormones, gentetics, etc.  The next step is to do the biopsy.  There are 2 different ways to handle this 1- do the biopsy then go back later to either fix the blockage (if there is one) or harvest the sperm for insemination or 2 – while doing the biopsy, go ahead and harvest for insemination.  We’re going with option 1 for a few reasons.  A big one being my insurance doesn’t cover insemination and that’s crazy expensive.  The other being that if it’s just a blockage, we’d rather go ahead and get it fixed.  It’ll be a long term solution to the issue.  We’ve already waited so long, a few more months won’t kill us.  So, all in all, not too bad.

@Rosie Girl:  I was just about to write back!  Glad you found us!!  We can’t figure out what happened with the last thread.  I’m so sad for that lady at your work.  I can’t even imagine. 

@bunny:  No, I have not tried that…but I will!  Thanks!!

@Candy_Nee:  I can’t imagine how thrilled I would be to get an on-time period on my own!  That is just awesome!!!!!  I am glad his appointment went well.  I would have chosen option 1 also. 

So I went to Walmart today and had the most embarrassing shopping cart:  Ginger ale, saltines, and butt wipes!!  I had to throw some random things in there just so my problem wasn’t so obvious!!

@Candy_Nee: Yay for your period! It’s so funny to think what kind of things excite me now that I’m TTC. When would we have ever been excited about our periods in the pastSmile
