    ROLL   CALL!

    Cycles/months trying: This is the 11th month 

    Current CD/DPO:  CD 22/ I think I’m Oing today!

    Chart (if you have one):    http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/42fd32

    Any known issues?  Stage IV endometriosis, short luteal phase

    Supplements/medications:  SOOOOO many it seems like!  pre-natals, vit B complex, acupuncture, herbs, progesterone after O

    Next steps?  I go to the doctor tomorrow to discuss next steps.  I am Oing really late this cycle, so I don’t have super high hopes, but we will see.

     Explain your “Poll” Answer: I am so impatient, I want to know as soon as possible!  And Darling Husband is more patient, but he definitely wants to know, too.

    @MrsR4ever:  I kind of agree with both you and your Darling Husband haha.  I actually like gender neutral stuff, I’m not really into pink and frilly for nursery/accesories anyway, so that’s probably what I would buy.  Of course clothing is an entirely different ball game, so for a girl, bring on the cute bloomers and tutus!

    ROLL  CALL!

     

    Cycles/months trying: 11th cycle/10 months

     

    Current CD/DPO:  CD7

     

    Chart (if you have one):  I’m not charting anymore.

     

    Any known issues?  None that we know of.

     

    Supplements/medications: Just prenatal vitamins.

     

    Next steps? I am having an HSG next week and Darling Husband will be getting his SA done soon. We also have an appointment with an RE on May 22.

     

    Explain your “Poll” Answer:  Yes! We couldn’t take the suspense of not knowing! 

     

    Thank you to the ladies who responded about my HSG. I called the dr office back, and that is the only day he is going to be able to do it. I’ve decided that we are not going to stop ttc tis cycle, so my plan is to start doing opk’s around CD10. I always O the day after a + opk, so if I get a + opk a day or two before the HSG, Darling Husband and I will go ahead and BD and I will re-schedule the HSG. But I’m hoping that I don’t O until CD 15 or 16, so I won’t get a + opk until after the HSG.

     

    Also, we found out that in order for DH’s SA to be covered by our insurance, he has to be sent by his own primary care physician, not my gyn. He is actually in the process of getting a new PCP, so as soon as he is seen he will request the SA and go then, but that could be a couple of weeks. :/

    @MrsMonty11:  Okay so since they can’t change your date… This is what I foresee happening: You get the HSG done (take Tylenol or Ibuprophen a half hour before), It clears any debris and makes a pretty path for your eggie. You O on CD 15 or 16 and because the HSG worked you get your BFP this cycle!!! So make sure you read this out loud so your body knows my expectations!!!!! FX! xoxo

     

    I will def keep everyone updated on the Clomid πŸ™‚

    @RoyalLime:  

    @MrsR4ever:  Thanks ladies.  I’m bad at getting on WB at home, but I’ll try to remember to come on after my appointment and update on how it goes.

    Cycles/months trying:  Six but soon to be seven I think πŸ™

    Current CD/DPO:  12 DPO/CD25, AF due tomorrow (having sharp pains, mood swings, the whole lot)

    Chart (if you have one):    I’m not a candidate for taking my temp as I work shift work (midnights, afternoons, days)

    Any known issues?  None so far!

    Supplements/medications:  Prenatals, 1 mg Folic Acid, EstraSmart Plus, B6.

    Next steps?

     I had blood work done at CD5 and CD22 and an ultrasound so I will find out next week the results of that.  After that, Darling Husband needs to get his swimmer count tested.

    Explain your “Poll” Answer: 

    I used to think I HAD to know the gender and Darling Husband didn’t want to know at all (“it’s the one great surprise in life!” he said) but now that it has taken some time to conceive, I’d be more happy to just have a baby at this point.
