    Hi everyone,

    (child mentioned)

    My son had a medical emergency last weekend and we were in the hospital for a week. It was the worst experience of my life and shook me to the core. Luckily we were able to take him home today and he is completely recovered.

    @wvarn: I hope that your grandfather is feeling better. What a scary experience.

    ----

    1. URMySunshine77 from Northern California

    2. TTC#2 for eight months, seven cycles

    3. What are you doing this cycle? Temping, OPKs, acupuncture once in a while

    4. 12DPO

    5. Negative pregnancy test today. I don't have hope for a BFP this cycle.

    We need to talk about whether or not we are going to proceed. I think that we are both up in the air at the moment and feeling emotionally spent from TTC and the health emergency.

    QOTW: The best vacation I have ever been on was when we backpacked through NZ, Australia, and the South Pacific.

    Shout out: I missed you all.

    @URMySunshine77‌ I was thinking about you this weekend and wondering where you'd been. I'm so sorry to hear about your son, but I hope he keeps getting better and I send you good thoughts for your own sense of well being. Health scares with the ones we love are so hard. All the best to you!!

    I'm so sorry to hear your son was sick @URMySunshine77‌! Prayers for his continued recovery. My daughter was in the hospital in June and it was one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. And I work there. It's so hard to see your baby sick and not be able to do anything to make it better. I hope you can recover as well. Hugs!

    1. Your Name or Screen Name (not full names) and State you are from.
    Rachel - Florida

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

    TTC #1 naturally for about a year (but only tracking my OV with mymonthlycycles (not temping etc which I wish I would have been doing!)

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

    IUI# 1 & 2 (back to back), I'm 13 DPIUI, I took 100 mg of Clomid for 5 days and responded well (2 big follies) and took HCG trigger shot.

    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?

    TWW NOW. I test tomorrow. Been testing at home and they're all BFN's. I had a lot of ovary pain up until 8DPIUI and some cramping, tiredness but nothing major. Now my right ovary hurts again.

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

    Kinda losing hoping because I don't feel pregnant, then again no super PMS symptoms either.

    QOTW: What is the best vacation you have been on?

    St. Barths & Anguilla for my honeymoon in June! :)

    Feel free to add any vents or shout outs.

    Just want to say I'm glad I found so many supportive women on this board that I can share with so I don't have to go through this journey alone.

    @URMySunshine77, Oh no!  You'd mentioned that you and DH were going to go on vacation, so I was all set to ask you how it was.  I'm so sorry to hear about such a scary experience instead.  I'm really glad DS is doing better.  Thinking of you and your family today.  >:D<

    Thank you so much, friends. He is still improving. Today he woke up at 6 am which didn't do anyone any favors. My parents are here because they were supposed to watch him during our vacation. At least they can help out. We'll take a vacation another time.

    Hugs to all of you. You brightened my day.

    Hi gals - sorry it's been awhile!  No, not preggers, but just wanted to pop in to see how you're all doing and such.  Here's my update.

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

    Ciara

    2. How long have you been TTC? Are you TTC #1,#2,#3, etc.?
    TTC#1 since Nov 2013 - Yep, ONE YEAR mark.  Sad.

    3. What are you doing this cycle? Are you seeking help with a fertility specialist (RE)? If so, what stage are you in? Charting/temping? Testing? Medicated cycles? IUI? IVF? DE? 
    I was on clomid for 2 cycles at 50mg, then took a break to do an HSG (all clear), plan is do go back on clomid at 100mg.  Fingers crossed.  Since I took this month off clomid - i've been taking EPO.

    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?
    CD9 ... just found out HSG is clear, so not sure how that impacts fertility after treatment.

    5. How do you feel about this cycle? (Are you hopeful, anxious... etc)
    Hmmm, not sure.  I hear you're super fertile after an HSG as the dye cleans out your tubes, so fingers crossed!

    QOTW: What is the best vacation you have been on?
    Last year hubby and I went to Europe and it was awesome.  It was supposed to be our "last big holiday" before having kids...maybe we need another one.  Haha.

    Feel free to add any vents or shout outs.
    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! I know we're all trying to TTC, but there is still a lot to be thankful for :)
