    Well, theoretically I should be in the TWW right now as I'm cd 16, but as far as I can tell, not yet.  Monitor says high, opk negative, and temp unclear with some bad sleep and also not always taking it at the right time. So, going to just keep assuming that it will happen late this month. Feeling very annoyed with this whole process right now. sorry for the negativity.

    I might be in the 2WW.  I had another temp shift this morning so hopefully it will stay up this time and I will get my crosshairs back.  I don't really do anything different in the 2ww as opposed to waiting to o - other than obsess about my chart.  :)

    I should be entering Friday. The O wait is becoming as bad. Lol

    I'll be in the TWW on Wednesday. I triggered tonight and IUI #2 is on for Wednesday morning. QOTW: nothing this cycle. I gave it all up when I got my bfn last month. I try to stay busier. Does that count? @kindershlitz‌ how did your follies look on ultrasound today?

    Good luck Wednesday @emsmama15!

    I had three follies yesterday- 16,15,14. I have another u/s Wednesday and will most likely trigger Wednesday night, iui Thursday and Friday. I'm nervous but what can I do but wait, right?

    @Teenie16‌ how are you doing?

    I am starting the second week of my TWW. Hoping this is it so i can stop researching IVF!

    Looks several folks about to start tww this week. Good-luck! 

    @kindershiltz and @emsmama15 - good-luck to you both with the IUI's this week!

    Now not much different before or after O. When we first starting trying i was finishing my dissertation. I would sort of get a little panicky in the tww that this could be my last 2 weeks to write w/o being super tired or sick feeling! So i would get really focused and the tww turned out to be most productive writing time :)

    I'm on my TWW. I'm new to this but believe I'm CD27. I have spotting that is messing with my head. I'm inexperienced and trying to learn as much as possible so I don't freak myself out too much.

    I'm nearing the end of the TWW!! I'm cd28 AF is due tomorrow or 3 days from now I O'd cd 17 so I guess that may push back AF. I'm feeling pretty blah, like an onset of getting sick complete with headache and loss of appetite. It's had to get excited cause I feel so drained. Don't feel typical AF symptoms (uncontrollable urge for chocolate, which normally I dislike). There's not much difference between O and TWW just a little challenging with me and my Dh schedule, he works night I work days.

    @kindershlitz @dukegirlsc Thank you so much for thinking of me. I'm so sorry for being so absent during the week. This new job is kicking my ass. I am at my desk for almost 12hrs/day and don't have time to get on this site at all. I wish I was exaggerating... I'm doing good. I too had my US yesterday. I had 3@18 and 1@12. So I will trigger Wednesday night and IUI Thursday and Friday. I'll be starting my TWW starting on Friday... I guess. 
    @kindershlitz Yours sounds great too. Fingers crossed for you! I know what you mean about being nervous. I want to stay positive and optimistic... but I think the nervousness is winning out at times.
    @emsmama15 Fingers crossed this is your cycle too! I think that totally counts.

    @emsmama15‌ hope things are going well for you today!

    My u/s showed one follie at 19 today. The others aren't significant anymore so I'm going with your mantra! Waiting to hear from the dr if I trigger tonight or not. They usually want 20mm.

    @Teenie16‌ sorry work is crazy but hopefully keeping your mind off the TTC stuff so that's a plus, right? Maybe you and I can have a trigger party tonight :)
  • Options
    ALL DONE!  IUI#2 is in the books.  It went well again (like last month).  Apparently I have a nice straight shot through my cervix once you're in there.  Good to know.  Hubby's count was awesome again.  I spent my ten minute post-IUI resting period chanting to myself, encouraging the little guys to find that one egg.  :)  Hey, I'm to the point of trying anything!!  Acupuncture this afternoon.

    @kindershlitz and @teenie16, I hope your IUIs go well the next two days.  And here's hoping for BFPs in a couple weeks! :)  

    Trigger party made me laugh...

    Yea! It went well! @emsmama15‌ now we just cross our fingers and toes. And wait...

    I'm CD18 and still waiting for FF crosshairs but believe I O'd on CD16 so I'm 2DPO. Originally thought I O'd on CD12 as I had a +OPK on day10 and temp drop day 12 but didn't have a significant temp increase until yesterday and today with temp drop on day 16. Wondering why I'd get a +OPK 6 days before O. Ugh! Anyway, BD timing was good either way!! Just bloated and sore boobs but that's normal for me. Really trying not to obsess in the TWW like I did in the past 2 cycles b/c it got me nowhere and I was disappointed when it didn't happen. I've been spotting 3-5 days before AF the last 2 cycles so I'm planning on testing around AF due date if I haven't spotted.

    Good luck all!!

    @Kinderschlitz I joined your trigger party tonight.I hope everything goes well tomorrow! Everything crossed for you!

    @Emsmama15 YAY for great numbers! Glad it went well. Chant away! Positive thinking can definitely help! Everything crossed for you too!

    @Hooligans4 Thank you so much for your endless support. XOXO

    Best of luck For you other ladies in the slow moving 2WW

    Thanks @emsmama15! Everything went as it should  I will go back for round 2 tomorrow.  I'm hoping I feel the cramping of ovulation, but I don't usually.  I'll be going in on Monday to ensure it happened.  I had mostly gotten over the TWW anxiety but it's back.  They said I could POS on Feb. 11.  

    @Teenie16- good luck as well! I had lots of fun at our party last night ;) That was my first ever.  DH was proud of me.  I kind of surprised myself becasue I was freaking out a bit.

    I have irregular cycles but think I ovulated last Thursday, which was super late since it was cycle day 29. I had a temperature shift the next day and it's been up since then, so I'd be at 7dpo now (but I'm not 100% sure that I actually did ovulate). I find that I go on these forums a lot more often during the 2ww and read other's posts. It's better when I don't think about it all the time. Good luck to everyone!

    @kindershlitz‌ that was my first too. I'm glad you were able to do it! Good for you! Mine was a little comical. My boss and hee assistant were doing stuff in the department while I was preparing my shot. I got it all ready then shut my door so I could get to my thigh. The must have left because just as I pull down my pants, put the needle in my leg and start to inject I hear people outside my door "hello?" Seriously?! What timing. Haha!
    Glad yours was uneventful. Good luck tomorrow!
    Thanks @emsmama15‌
