You guys are the best. Thank you. It helps to know that I’m not alone and that my reactions weren’t completely abnormal. 😉 I honestly don’t think the old lady meant anything by it (she seemed genuinely sorry). I’m still embarrassed that people saw me crying at church (I’m sure they gossiped enough about why after I left!) Ah well, it’s over and done with and best forgotten.
Thanks again for your support. ♥ 🙂

@MrsLantern: Congratulations! so exciting!!
Sorry you had a tough time and glad to hear you are feeling better. Its difficult people can be insensitive without realizing. I am usually tongue tied too if put on spot and can’t come up with retort. If I happpen to be embarrassed I will usually just shrug it off / would pretend it was nothing to random folks and move on with my life. What matters is your DH and people you care aout and they being on your side.

I’d probably have to change churches! I don’t think the boys have any idea how hard it is to deal with that kind of thing. They can let things roll of their shoulders…

I totally agree with you about the boys having no idea! We were at my FIL’s surprise party this weekend, and many of his friends ask my husband when we were going to have kids. Obviously they have no idea what we have been going through. But my husband was so surprised that so many people asked him. When i told him that I get asked that ALL THE TIME, he was so surprised. I’m sad that we are being asked this, but I’m happy that he got a taste of it because I think it has us connected even more.

Oh wow! That’s so awesome!!
I think all tr offenders are just rude. I dontbalance you for breaking down. I would be hella pissed if some gossippy women were talking about my infertility behind my back.
Resting my poor tired feet after a long day traipsing around manhattan. Everything’s been great so far! Only one minor reminder of failing at ttc when dh pointed out a nypd onesie (he’s a cop at home, so he was pretty impressed by all things nypd). But he quickly fed me a ginormous cupcake and took me to rock of ages and all was right in the world again 🙂

Congrats!!!! Yeah, another graduate.
Hopefully you will be zero soon.
Had a wonderful Girl’s Wkend and just waiting for AF. Tons of cramping but Nada. Here I’m praying for AF and she’s taking her sweet time. Soo frustrated.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is fantastic news!!!! Happy and healthy nine months! And another PP baby 😉 lol. I’m sure you mentioned it before. Were you also on RJ or any other supplements to help your egg quality/quantity? I mean because of your higher FSH. Your higher FSH success gives me tons of hope. Yay!
@luli29: Welcome. Hope your stay is short and sweet.
Congrats on your first running success. You can do this girl!
Did your AP recommend RJ to you? I’m very curious to try it myself but wanted to wait for me next AP so I can discuss it first. Interested to know what your AP thinks of it.
((hugs)). I’m very sorry. It prob doesn’t make you feel better but I would have reacted the exact same way.
I’m very sorry that you are still in this place. I really hope this ends soon so you can get a fresh start. ((hugs))
I didn’t temp or use OPK’s this month but based on my CM I’m pretty sure I ovulated yesterday. We were only able to BD on Saturday (-2) because our dad’s were staying with us until this morning. But I’m not too worried about it. We had perfect timing for the last prob 6 months and it still didn’t work. I very much enjoy the break from temping and OPK’s. I think I won’t go back any time soon.

@bradybride: @Wispy: @SapphireSun: @kayakgirl73: @elchalten:
Thank you ladies! Really appreciate it 🙂
Thank you so much! I didn’t take anything specific to address FSH, but took B6+B12 combo, and my prenatals. AP helped heaps to destress. I got my AMH levels back yesterday and to my surprise, it was a really good number. The RE was puzzled why my FSH levels were so high even though my AMH levels were good. Have you gotten your AMH measured? I’m glad you’re enjoying your break from tempting and OPKs. I did that 2 months ago and focusing on life outside on TTC was a much needed break 🙂

@silver1: “What matters is your DH and people you care aout and they being on your side.”
So true. Everybody else doesn’t really matter…Thanks for this perspective!
Oh goodness girl, I can’t imagine going through 4+ weeks of what you’ve been through. I’m so sorry. ((Hugs))
I’m glad you’re having a good time in Manhattan! Enjoye your holiday!
But I think you and @bradybride:
are right. Our men don’t understand how much it affects us. Although after my meltdown, DH admitted to worrying about it far more than he ever lets on. I don’t think he likes other people knowing too much about our struggles.
It helps to know that my reaction wasn’t totally crazy. 😉 Feeling so much better about it this afternoon. I’m really glad that you’re enjoying your break. My two month break from temping has been the best thing that I could do for myself too.

Man. Blogger bees haven’t been able to log in and comment for almost 2 days and I was going NUTS trying to follow what’s been going on. *rocks back and forth*
I’m still barren. o_0 CD25 and no O, no signs of impending O and a whole lot of nothing going on. It’s so depressing. I should’ve taken Provera a week ago when I was having doubts about this Clomid cycle working, but here I am, stubbornly holding out. Bah humbug.
This is the darkest my OPKs have gotten over the last week or two, and it’s still ridiculously faint. The monitor has now given me 18 days of Highs. 18 !!!!!!!! I’ve almost gone through an entire (flipping expensive) box. 🙁

If I ever get KU, I should send you some extra CBEFM sticks because I don’t end up using as many as they recommend each month. I think I’ll get a peak tomorrow and I never use the sticks after the first peak because it doesn’t even look at them. I have a whole box at home that I’m hoping I won’t have to use. I’m signed up on Amazon to get a new box sent every three months.
I’m really hoping I get the peak tomorrow. I didn’t get a high until CD12 (today is my second high) and I got my first high on CD8 and a peak on CD12 last month. Stupid inconsistent body.
Tonight’s our actual anniversary, though we went for dinner and a movie on Sunday night. I think we’ll go out to dinner tonight too but use a Groupon. I’ve got absolutely no tolerance for alcohol anymore after all this abstaining. I had a single drink with dinner on Sunday night and I got SO drunk. I was swaying and slurring my words before we’d even finished dinner.
I’m a little anxious about my gyno visit on Friday. I’m only going in for a follow-up pap but I need to tell him that I’m super serious about getting pregnant and I don’t care what my insurance will and won’t pay for or how long I need to wait. We’re on cycle 12 and I’m not waiting anymore. He always rushes through the appointment and sometimes it’s hard for me to speak up about my concerns.
