bjenmomma :  Hahahaha thanks bee! No offence, but I hope I never have to join another POAS thread again either!! wink doc is putting in order for betas today and I’m so hungry I could eat everything in sight, so I’m hoping that’s a good thing as I had zero symptoms with my CP.

Baby#: 2

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD13

Ovulation Date: Unsure – first month on Letrozole/Femara – Expected around CD 16?

POAS Date: March 2/3 (whether i’m March or not depends on if I go for the trigger or not)

Usual Cycle Length: 30/31 But due to meds, this might be shorter. 

Cycles Trying: This is cycle 3 

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Its all changing monthly now since i’m with an RE due to my age. If we are not successful this month, my plan is to have that test for the tubes done. Make sure those are clear. Then just keep doing the Letrozole/Femara and if needed, trigger. We will move on to IUI if nothing happens by May 

Trying anything new this month: Femara/Letrozole 5 mg

So I didn’t realize that my preseed was long expired.  I ordered a new bottle hoping that does the trick. Also, we are hoping to favor the odds for a little girl. I wouldn’t mind having a third boy, but I can sense my husband wants a little girl. I’ll try all I can. 😊

candy11 :  How do you all plan to favor a girl or are you two just hoping?  I should check my bottle to make sure it’s in date!

jaybear :  mostly doing the deed before ovulation and trying to eat more food rich with calcium. Supposedly that helps! I don’t think it matters much, but it doesn’t hurt to try!

candy11 : Interesting! I’ve heard about stopping a few days before expected O because sperm live longer but haven’t heard about the calcium.  I feel like if I were to stop before O and not get a Bridal Party I’d be so angry at myself mostly due to being impatient.

Good morning ladies!  Sitting here at CD12, waiting on EWCM to start – it’s way late this go round so I’m pretty frustrated.

I’m also having a hard time dealing positively with pregnancy announcements.  In the last 6 weeks my SIL has revealed she’s pregnant with twins (after a very, very long struggle, so I’m genuinely THRILLED for them), one of the coaches at my gym who’s in her early 20s is pregnant, and just this morning I woke up to another text that another coach at my gym is pregnant with her second.

I’m really struggling because I am genuinely THRILLED for these women.  But I am so heartbroken for myself.  I’m almost glad the last reveal was by text so that my face wouldn’t given away how it gutted me, because I truly am happy for HER.  Just so sad for me.

Any tips on dealing with this?  Or does it just suck and we have to grit our teeth through?

If we are unsuccessful this cycle we are going in for an appointment to check things out.  It will have been 5 months, but 6 cycles, and I’m about to turn 36.  So knowing that I have an action plan gives me a little hope.
