anev : Welcome to this month! I’ve kind of fell off the past few months, but now that we have a plan (and I am leading this board hahahah) I’ll probably be a little more active. Fx you have some luck with a BFP.
I haven’t done much for exercising but I’ve started recently. There are so many youtube videos out there 🙂

danakxox : Definitely nothing wrong with positive thinking and hope. And when you do get pregnant, you’ll be prepared!
NicLE1218 : I’m so glad I’m not the only one doing this. It really is helping my mental state, so even if nothing happens at least I’ll be a little more at peace.

Approaching my FW within the next few days (Ava says it starts today, but knowing that I typically O later in my cycle, I don’t think it’s actually for a couple more days)… and actually BDing without any sort of medication. It seems so weird to be trying naturally this month!

NicLE1218 : Yay. so exciting! I’m not really feeling anything honestly, just ready to get on with it. We did decide if the IUIs don’t work, we’ll target IVF this summer, so it feels good to have a plan in place, but ugh – I am just so tired of this whole process. How about you?
For GoodRx, I usually just pull up the website on my phone or recently I downloaded the app. I just show it to the pharmacist and they enter the information. They always say something about how they’ve already run it through my insurance to get the price, but I tell them that this is cheaper and I want to run this and have never had a problem. Sometimes my insurance in cheaper, but every now and then this definitely helps!

RaccoonKitty : the 2 year mark sucks! yes just had a lap, they found endo only some of which they could remove but they didn’t say it was the cause of my infertility.
Sorry to go hear about your frustration, hope you get your positive opk soon!

anev : I’ve followed blogilates videos on and off over the years, there are heaps on YouTube and alot of them are indoor friendly too!

cbn8787 : I didn’t think about GoodRx. We use it for my dad’s meds sometimes. My clomid only cost $5. I think the only issue with the compounded stuff is that they won’t bill insurance.
NicLE1218 : The paperwork we had to sign saying that we acknowledged the risk of multiples specifically talked about Gonal F and I know I saw someone who took clomid, gonal f, and then the trigger shot, so that’s what I was worried about. However, we haven’t had the appointment yet, so I’m not sure what their protocol is. Good, I’ll let my husband know. Twins would be great if this was our first baby, but with three others, twins doesn’t sound great.

lucky_charm : Well I hope you’re recovering well from your lap 😊 are you unexplained?
I may have gotten my answer today…. weird that I never had a positive opk though!?

RaccoonKitty : I also ovulated earlier this week, according to FF, but I never got a positive OPK even though I started testing at day 8. I think I’m too hydrated. Looks like you BD’ed enough to hit O! FX!!!!

Hi Bees! I’m back here again, sad and frustrated. As usual keeping my fingers and toes crossed that this is my month. Last cycle was the longest i’ve ever had in my life and I raelly had a lot of false hope. Alas, AF showed up with a vengence.

heartandstars : absolutely! If it helps your peace of mind and mental status, I think it’s definitely a good thing. Stress doesn’t help anything, so anything to decrease that even a little bit is great!!
tulipdazey : I bet it does feel weird trying naturally!!! Fx!
cbn8787 : we don’t have any plans for IVF yet, as we are hoping the donor sperm and IUI does the trick but we will definitely cross that road when we get there. Having a plan helps the peace of mind though. That’s good to know about the GoodRX thing – I’ll definitely keep that in mind. I believe this one was cheaper than the price I saw on the goodrx when I found it. Thank you for passing that along!
angel_baby_12_9 : you will definitely have to see what protocol the doctor puts in place, and feel free to ask all the questions you need to because that is part of their job! And if your husband could be there for those questions, that would be awesome so he could hear the answers and also ask some of his own questions too if he has more.
RaccoonKitty : maybe you missed the positive OPK? Fx!!!
danakxox : definitely will do when I update tomorrow!!!
highstrungmomtobe : welcome to this month!! If you have any questions about the RE and all that jazz feel free to reach out. Many of us have been there for the first time in the past year, and all of us are currently in the trenches. Good luck!!
mrsalexander : aww hun I’m sorry you’re feeling down. The TTC journey is definitely not easy. Let yourself feel all the feels and then pick yourself back up and hope for the next cycle to have success. Good luck with all the appointments. If the lab is closed today Monday should be good. If not, they can always start the labs next cycle but I’m hoping this cycle will work out for that! I loveeee Grey’s Anatomy. Season 5 is one of my favorites 😍
ctinaxox : welcome. Eeee! So exciting!!! Good luck this month! I can’t wait to hear your results in a few weeks.
AFM, my date will be moved up depending on how the next few days go. Follicle scan update from this morning: two 11s and a 10 on my right, and two 10s and an 11 on my left. Many more small follicles are there but not big enough yet. She did say it will likely be a little more controlled if a cycle due to my PCOS. I go in for another scan on Tuesday morning when I get off work and then will go from there. Hoping for a trigger and the IUI before my weekend to work!
