Re: Weekly Check-In

  • Oh thank goodness for something posted!  I was about to say something about how I want it to be Friday already. :)

    1. Your Name or Screen Name ( not full names) and State you are from... 
    Radiantly, from Brooklyn NY

    2. How long have you been TTC? TTC#1 or TTC#2, 3 etc...? 
    TTC #1 since Jan 2014 but NTNP since Aug 2013

    3. What are you doing this cycle? Are you seeking help with a fertility specialist ( RE)? If so where are you at? Testing? Medicated cycles? IUI? IVF? Charting/temping?
    Starting sexytime earlier, and just learned that saliva is bad (big oops!!) and starting pre-seed. Just bought a book yesterday "Making Babies" that is a mix of western and eastern baby-making wisdom.  I'm still doing daily Maya abdominal massage and weekly acupuncture.
     

    4. Where are you in your cycle? ( Waiting to O, 2WW etc) If in the 2ww when will you test? Experiencing any weird "phantom" symptoms ladies in your 2ww? 
    I am in the fun zone!!  Day 12 and my CM is starting to pick up.  We are going to BD tonight, and hopefully every day.  Using OPK and it's still the empty O no smiley face yet.

    5. How do you feel about this cycle? (Are you hopeful, anxious... etc) 
    Hopeful, since i feel like we are going to try harder with intention on the timing, and not use saliva (which apparently is too acidic for spermies to live), and I also feel good that I have a visit with my gyno for my annual and am going to ask for recommendations for RE or figure out at least just for testing, where do we go. I am strongly opposed to doing medications, I don't feel like I've had nearly enough months of good timing and I think I am very healthy, hopeful I don't have to use meds.  Every time I've used meds I've gotten screwed up.

    QOTW: 
    What is one of your favorite quotes?
    My favorite: Julia Child said "EVERYTHING IN MODERATION.... INCLUDING MODERATION."


    TTC#1 since Aug 2013, I'm 37, DH 41.  
    Maya Arvigo Abdominal massage (daily self care), plus TTC meditations.
    I'm very sensitive to diet (gluten, avoid processed foods) and environment. Have a history of inflammation and tendinitis before going off gluten in 2009.  
    July 2014 - RE Visit #1: Eggs look good, Endometrioma on R ovary, HSG showed blocked R tube close to ovary. DH SA normal 
    DX: Endometriosis probably the IF cause and gunking up tubes.  Since egg reserve is high, RE says I can wait a couple months and then get laproscopic surgery to remove endo & clear tube.  If that doesn't help then move to IVF. 
    Dec 2014 - Saw new RE - does not recommend surgery on tube as it isn't likely to help.  Doubts I have endometriosis.  My endometrioma shrunk to neglible size (yay!) 
    Seriously considering IVF in March/April
    12/17/14 - Natural BFP!

  • @ksgsmu, good news about the pgd testing!  Sounds like you have some big decisions coming up.  Good luck, and keep us posted!  @radiantly, I remember being surprised to learn about saliva, too.  Knowing what we do now, doesn't it seem absolutely unbelievable that anyone ever gets pregnant unintentionally?

    1.  Davie813, Chicago

    2.  This is my 5th cycle TTC #2

    3.  Charting, temping, opks, preseed, evening primrose oil, DHA, CoQ10, maca.  Going to see an acupuncturist Friday!  If this isn't the month, I'll see my OB for further testing and an RE referral.

    4.  CD 8.  Informed DH that open season starts Friday.

    5.  Pretty calm.  I feel relieved that I've taken some concrete steps, and am pretty sure that I am going to need some kind of help from the RE, so this kind of feels like just a bonus cycle before the real work commences.

    6.  Hmmm..."No one can make you feel inferior without your consent"--Eleanor Roosevelt

  • @ksgsmu: It sounds like things are going well. I'm glad! :-)
    @Radiantly: I love your positive posts. Good luck in this FW!
    @Davie813: Your attitude sounds great. I hope this cycle is the one.

    1. URMySunshine77 from Northern California 

    2. TTC #2 for two months, NTNP for three months before that

    3. temping, PNV, Wondfo OPKs

    I was drinking decaf green tea in the afternoon, but it was keeping me up at night. Weird.

    4. 5DPO. I have had a backache for two days. I hope it means something.

    5. I am a little befuddled about this cycle. We didn't BD for three days during my FW. My OPKs signaled that I would O on CD17 or CD18. We had sex on the night of CD17 which was evidently the night before the O; however, my CM was nonexistent. I don't know what to think. I hope it doesn't decrease the possibility of conception.

    QOTW: 
    One of my favorite quotes is in my siggy, but I also like this one:


    "Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose." -Helen Keller

    @ksgsmu‌ good luck on making some decisions! Yes you are getting close! @Radiantly GL to you and hoping you don't need an RE. I agree with URMySunshine on your positivity! @Davie813‌ if you need help from an RE hoping it's a simple plan :). @Samuelisomma GL!!

    1. Becky from Pitts
    2. Started with RE 4/11. 3 years
    3. DE IVF #1...last one got cancelled
    4. 2ww!!! Trying not to go crazy focusing on symptoms.

    I had a total freakout when I called the lab to check on how many I had frozen the other day. She said none!! Cue the crying. Well lab called the next day and the one girl misunderstood me and with the Valium in me Sat I didn't realize Dr said I had four. Thank goodness.
    5. Positive thinking only :)

    QOTW: Nothing fancy. "Never give up on something you really want. It's difficult to wait but more difficult to regret"

    ME:46 MH:44 DE IVF 2014
    Met with RE 4/11. 2 IUI's BFN. DE best option. Switched clinics to do "shared" program. Had to retake all tests and a mamm that put me behind and then on a DE waiting list for 12 months. Picked a donor!! (10/13/13) Got matched. Estimated transfer in December. After 2.5 years of patiently waiting I will finally cycle....can hardly believe it. DE cycle got cancelled. One of her tests came back positive.  Waiting for another donor. Donor picked!! (1/18/14)

  • I accidentally posted this in last week's check-in. 

    1. Lindsay, from NY 


    2. TTC#2 since March 2013, currently on cycle #14

    3. We are working with an RE. Did a medicated IUI this cycle. Clomid + Ovidrel. IUI was yesterday. I had (have?) two follies measuring 20.4 and 20.5. DH's count was 13 million moving sperm for the IUI. Trying to be cautiously optimistic but this is IUI #3 so it's hard not to get discouraged. I'm also doing acupuncture this cycle.  

    4. I'm in the 2WW, CD 14. I will probably start testing at 10DPO because I am a POAS addict. No phantom symptoms yet. I usually get them about 5-7 days into the 2WW and they are so frustrating!

    5. I'm cautiously optimistic this cycle. 

    QOTW: 
    I can't really think of any quotes that inspire me. I suck :(
    BFP: 5/10/14 after 14 cycles of trying!
    EDD: 1/21/15
    5/12 1st beta: 28
    5/14 2nd beta: 87.5

    1.  Lisa, TX

    2. 4th Cycle TTC #2 

    3.Finished remaining OPK kit

    4. CD 20, so somewhere in the 2 week wait.  OPKs ran out when it was still flashing smiley on CD13, so not sure when O was.  Probably won't test until after CD33 in case O was later.  No phantom symptoms yet, but not really checking for them either.

    5.  Not very hopeful.  We had sex the day before DH got food poising around when our FW probably was so not the best chance.  However if O was around CD 17 then we might have a chance with 3 day sperm build up.  I'm looking at this as wash and will start FF next cycle just to confirm O.

    QOTW:  I was drawing a blank too, but I found this one from my Mary Engelbreit weekly planner. "Sometimes, reaching out and taking someone's hand is the beginning of a journey.  At other times, it is allowing another to take yours." --Vera Nazarian  I need this to remind me it is okay to ask for help and acknowledge weaknesses.  Sometimes I try to be everything to everyone and it just creates unneeded stress.

    Im here to check in and force myself to be part of things I love (this place for sure) 

    Kirsten from CA

    TTC for over a year…I'm not counting on purpose. 

    NPNT….but H went to do his SA and since he had to bring a sample (no collection room) and it was in an area he was unfamiliar with he did not make it in the 30 minute window (the place is an hour from where we live….talk about inconvenient) He apparently took half day off from work to get it done since there can be CRAZY traffic in the area at the end of the day…..once it took me an hour to go 10 miles. I didn't even know he was planning on getting it done. Sorry Vent over. 

    I am on CD28

    Not feeling anything about this cycle. Im numb and honestly we BD 1 time in my supposed fertile window so no chance. 

    Fav quote. Hmmmm. I need something funny. "keep your chin up…..or you are looking at your own boobs all day" 

    I don't have a fav…..this one just sounded good at the moment. :)

    I'm benched this cycle so I'm trying out a natural fertility cleanse. Also take CoQ10 and prenatal vit. Still slightly spotting from m/c.
    By being benched, it allowed me to book a vacation to Florida. I definitely need something to look forward to b/c the last couple of weeks were horrible...(pity party).
    I'm not sure if this is my fave quote, but I keep it behind a picture of me and my mom. "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do." - Eleanor Roosevelt

    1.  mindaa, Phoenix

    2. TTC #1 for 2.5 years
    3.charting/temping
    4. CD33. Thought this month was a bust because I didn't O... then FF told me that I did O... on CD 27! I had stopped with the OPK's by then... that's late, even for someone who's normally late!
    5.  Still feeling this month is a bust, since I don't think BD was very well timed. And a super long cycle on top of that, when I was ready to just get it over with.

    QOTW: Love these! 
    "A life lived in fear is a life half lived." is one that has stuck with me. 
    And, I keep close a whole stash of TTC "quotes" including :) 
    Psalms 127:3 - children are a heritage of the Lord and the fruit of womb is a reward.
    Psalms 113:9 - He grants the barren woman a home, like a joyful mother of children.

    NPNT….but H went to do his SA and since he had to bring a sample (no collection room) and it was in an area he was unfamiliar with he did not make it in the 30 minute window (the place is an hour from where we live….talk about inconvenient) He apparently took half day off from work to get it done since there can be CRAZY traffic in the area at the end of the day…..once it took me an hour to go 10 miles. I didn't even know he was planning on getting it done. Sorry Vent over. 

    I am on CD28

    Not feeling anything about this cycle. Im numb and honestly we BD 1 time in my supposed fertile window so no chance. 

    Fav quote. Hmmmm. I need something funny. "keep your chin up…..or you are looking at your own boobs all day" 

    I don't have a fav…..this one just sounded good at the moment. :)
    Welcome back!  Hope everything's OK!

    Thinking of all you ladies, especially those of you who are having a difficult week/month.  We're all here for you.  >:D<

  • @Davie813 - open season! LOL

    TAT2MAMI - really, yours is telling you today? I thought we are on the same cycle! Is your cycle typically 28 days? Mine is average 31, maybe that's it.  My app (Kindara) is saying my O will be next Weds or Thursday (Day 19) I don't get that... I'm assuming it will happen earlier and taking precautions.   
    TTC#1 since Aug 2013, I'm 37, DH 41.  
    Maya Arvigo Abdominal massage (daily self care), plus TTC meditations.
    I'm very sensitive to diet (gluten, avoid processed foods) and environment. Have a history of inflammation and tendinitis before going off gluten in 2009.  
    July 2014 - RE Visit #1: Eggs look good, Endometrioma on R ovary, HSG showed blocked R tube close to ovary. DH SA normal 
    DX: Endometriosis probably the IF cause and gunking up tubes.  Since egg reserve is high, RE says I can wait a couple months and then get laproscopic surgery to remove endo & clear tube.  If that doesn't help then move to IVF. 
    Dec 2014 - Saw new RE - does not recommend surgery on tube as it isn't likely to help.  Doubts I have endometriosis.  My endometrioma shrunk to neglible size (yay!) 
    Seriously considering IVF in March/April
    12/17/14 - Natural BFP! 
  • @Radiantly - According to the app I'm using, Ovia I am on CD 16. It shows me fertile from 4/27 - 5/2. Does this seem right to you? I got AF on 4/16 and it went through 4/22. We've been DTD almost every day. My preference would be every other day, but my DH has a crazy high libido! Help!! LoL

    Me: 38 ~  DH: 38 ~   DD: 8
    TTC #2 since March/April 2014.
     
     
  • Glad to know I was missed @URMySunshine77! lol. That makes me feel a little less like a nobody right now….lol. 

    GEEEEZ…..Im pathetic! 

    Im crossing my fingers and toes for all you ladies….I am a bag of mixed emotions right now. 

    Wanting/hoping TC while NPNT……but still sort of wanting to wait. Weight loss is going too slow for my liking AND Im struggling with my business right now. REALLY struggling.

    Its a little of everything for me right now. 

    Also my daughter and i were busy getting her stuff ready for her upcoming prom. so yeah i was busy and also just feeling down and not wanting to bring it here to you fine ladies. Ive been photographing a lot of newborns lately too….so that can be rough. Fun but rough.

  • 1. Kindershlitz/MI 2. Ttc#2 tenth cycle 3. Will be headed back to OB in June if nothing happens 4. CD 3 5. I'm feeling very pessimistic and down. Even after our vacation. Grrr. Was bump breaking, however, DH cancelled golf trip due to expected fertile time which was super nice. 6. No quotes although I do like "maybe the hokey pokey is really what it's all about" I'm not sure if jimmy Buffett originated that but he's got the song

  • Liz from Florida
    Officially started TTC this month
    This cycle we're just playing it by ear, but I'm charting. 
    I'm in a 2WW - Not likely to test unless I miss AF by May 13th
    I had phantom symptoms around Oing so I don't know what to think about it since it's my first month of BC
    I'm not expecting anything this cycle because we didn't BD at the right time, but stranger things have happened!!!

    I have two favorite quotes:
    "What we do in life echoes in eternity" from Gladiator
    "Problems only bother us to the extent in which we let them." from the Little Book of Letting Go.

  • 1. Hi, I'm a noob. :) Amy in Indiana

    2. #1 was unplanned over 10 years ago when I was a youngin...now trying for #2 for about 2 years now.

    3. Started working with IVF Dr in November, my Prolactin level came back as high which they think was preventing O. Beginning of April, started meds and past 3 days have had +OPK so we shall see.


    4. Where are you in your cycle? I think just after O.

    5. How do you feel about this cycle? Hopeful but afraid to be hopeful!

    QOTW:
    What is one of your favorite quotes?
    The cruelest lies are often told without a word, the kindest truths are often spoken, never heard.
  • 1. Your Name or Screen Name ( not full names) and State you are from...

    Tene' - Michigan

    2. How long have you been TTC? TTC#1 or TTC#2, 3 etc...?

    5 months TTC #1

    3. What are you doing this cycle? Are you seeking help with a fertility specialist ( RE)? If so where are you at? Testing? Medicated cycles? IUI? IVF? Charting/temping?

    Everything except meds or treatment

    4. Where are you in your cycle? ( Waiting to O, 2WW etc) If in the 2ww when will you test? Experiencing any weird "phantom" symptoms ladies in your 2ww?

    WTO  CD9

    5. How do you feel about this cycle? (Are you hopeful, anxious... etc)

    I feel good.  I have come to the realization that it is not healthy to obsess too much over a person who is not here yet.  Because then I'm not appreciating the wonderful friends and family who ARE here especially DH.  Tomorrow is not promised so I'm staying in the present and not worrying about the future.

    QOTW:
    What is one of your favorite quotes?

    Life is not just about waiting for the sun to shine.  It's about learning to dance in the rain.

    1. Deb from NYC
    2. TTC #2 since March
    3. Been meaning to make an RE appt for sometime in June, maybe today will be the day I actually remember to do it! Otherwise, just doing OPKS.
    4. I'm late on the update, but right now I'm CD16, pretty sure I O'd on CD 13. DH and I only had sex on the day of my positive OPK, he had the stomach bug the day before and guess who has it now, UGGGG! So anyway, considering how horrible I feel from this bug, I'm not feeling very positive about this cycle. 
    5. "Sometimes it feels really really wonderful to be alive" I guess I'm in a dramatic mood today, but everytime I get down about anything I just remember in this moment I'm alive and that is truly a beautiful wonderous thing that cancels out anything that might be dragging me down.

    Best of luck to everyone for this cycle!

    2. 6 months TTC#1


    3. Well, just got AF (booo).  I have been charting for 3 months, and know my cycle is like clock work (and I ovulate the same time every month) soooo, to stop driving myself crazy looking at charts and interpreting everything, I've decided to STOP charting for a month.  I need a break.  Will BD every other day as "prescribed". Going to do a session of acupuncture too and keep OPKing.  And if no luck this month, will head to see the OBGYN and see what she recommends. *Fingers crossed*


    4. CD 2 and annoyed (lol)
