@misstut23 HEY! Great to have you here. I’m sorry you’re feeling nervous about the situation. It can be super overwhelming for sure. I hope You don’t mind me asking but have you and H had your Genetic screening done? It may make you feel more at ease.
@ndz2018 yep her epilepsy is idiopathic, no physical, metabolic or genetic cause. Advised by genetics counselor at time of her diagnosis that her diagnosis would not impact future pregnancies.
Status (WTO/TWW/Benched/in process of testing or treatment): TWW
CD, CD/DPO (if applicable): CD19, this is our first cycle trying in almost a year.
What are you doing this cycle? (Testing? Treatment? Vitamins/supplements?): Did Femara for CD 3-7, lots of supplements - fola pro, vitamin C & D, fish oil, iron, etc., acupuncture, OPKs, BBT temping, trying to eat semi-healthy, hasn't gone too well lately (since Thanksgiving)!
Rants/Raves: We have been waiting for months to start TTC and decided to have Thanksgiving at our place this year and my SIL and her kids brought the sickness with them! First my DS caught it and then each of us... so we've been sick almost 2 weeks now, all respiratory! So it's time to BD and we're exhausted and can hardly breathe! Thanks SIL! We haven't been sick since earlier this year! Ugh! Mother trucker!
Questions for the group: Does anyone ever smell smoke during ovulation? I think maybe I O'd yesterday sometime and kept smelling cigarette smoke at different places, even in our house and we don't smoke (hate it) and always try to avoid it!
GTKY: What present are you hoping for this holiday? (besides the obvious lol) Peace on Earth would be wonderful!! Umm... I don't know. I always want camera lenses, but they're so expensive, I'd never expect them! I put a telescope on my wish list, but have so few people shopping for us these days... We are going to Disney World in January to celebrate our 20th anniversary (we honeymooned there as kids in our early 20s!) and taking DS with us since he won't be 3 until March, he'll still be free, so I thought what a better time to go? We'd love to get a few gift cards to Disney to help pay for food or whatever else.
What are you thankful for this week? I was so thankful to see the 2 lines on the OPK strips, I wasn't even sure if I was ovulating! Thankful for my family (even if they get us sick *sigh*) and friends and this bump group here!!
