    Update:  I O'd on a break cycle!  Whoo-hoo!!!  I'll be testing or expecting AF around 4th of July... hoping to keep my mind off of it...

    QOTW: We hope to buy a house and move in by August!!!  I also want to finish a few photo albums I started, but left unfinished...

  • Update:

    On a break from meds, but did TI and had a ton of testing done. Will be POAS around the first. Was thinking about doing it June 30 so that I could (hopefully) join the June club! It's only 12 DPO, though. We'll see.

    QOTW:

    Potty training the little one and getting our yard up to par. We moved into a very overgrown 1/2 acre and every square inch has weeds or crab grass:(

    Conceived DD after 15 cycles--- TTC #2 since 11/10---Me- Poor egg quality and supply---DH- Poor count and motility---2 rounds 75IU Follistim/IUI-BFN---5/12 150IU Follistim/IUI-Over-produced! Converted to IVF! 0 fertilized:( Rescue ICSI performed. 2 embryos transfered-BFN

  • Update: I can be moved to the 2ww! I will test around July 8th.

    Qotw: I am finally owning up to the fact that we are stuck in our house for a lot longer than we anticipated, so I am in the midst of refreshing rooms with updated decor. I hope to re-paint the guest room and we need to clean out the attic and have a giant yard sale.

  • I'm still keeping up with this board even though I don't post as often. I'm still lurking. My due date changed to 1-7-12. I'll be 12 weeks tomorrow but won't feel this is real until after my next appt 7-6-11. My summer plans are to work less and try to do more outings with the boys. We're throwing a big bday party tomorrow cause my baby is turning 2. Of course it's cars theme. They're so excited about it.

  • Update: I'm on a break until after DH has surgery.  Hopefully we will be able to start back with IUI's Sept/Oct. 

    QOTW: Try to go to the pool daily.  I am also planning my DD 2nd birthday, starting with all the decorations and such. 

    image Lilypie Premature Baby tickers Lilypie First Birthday tickers image Dori image
  • Update: CD1 of a break cycle.  We will still be trying, but no meds this time.

    QOTW: We have several projects with our house that we are trying to complete.  I panted the majority of the house, but DH has to still get the top of one wall that I couldn't reach.  I want to paint our cabinets (I am thinking black, is that way out there or d you think it is a good idea?), and then DH and some friends will lay our new floor that we have sitting in the basement.  We would also like to work on the yard too, but I am not sure that is in the cards.  Our goal is to move in about 2 years so we are trying to get things looking good so at least the house will sell fast even if we can't get back what we paid for it.

  • Can you add me to the list? I had a third consecutive miscarriage which needed a repeat D&C due to a molar pregnancy (just confirmed yesterday) so I am on a forced break for who the eff knows how long. My summer plans are to survive. I have no idea how I am going to manage this. My other plan is to enjoy the extra alone time I will have with DD since she wont be a big sister anytime soon, and I dont want to look back on her toddler years and regret that I didn't enjoy every  moment with her.

  • What a great update!

     EDD: Feb 16, 2012, stick baby stick!

    QOTW:  Finish all of our outside plans-we just finished with our new brick patio and major landscaping so just continuing to add to it and keeping up with it.  Also switching how we currently have the rooms layed out in the house (moving the office to the empty bedroom and baby room to a room closer to ours-lot of work just thinking about it).

  • JMay thanks for posting an update :o)  I lurk on here very often to check in on everyone. 

    My update is that we found our we are having a boy and a girl.  We are so excited for DS and feel so blessed that he will get to experience having both a brother and a sister.

    Goals for the summer are to enjoy and make as many memories with my sweet boy as I can as life is going to change a lot for us all in the fall. Wishing everyone a beautiful and relaxing weekend.

  • update - Well, after 6 moths with the re, 2 IUI cycles and 2 with too many eggs, last night I started birth control for IVF #1.  I am still really emotional about having to move to IVF and have sort of let myself shut down a bit emotionally, you know?  I know that I will be posting here a LOT as I go through IVF because I am not public about this and don't want to put it in DD's blog, you know?

    goals - do one wall in the basement with magnetic primer and blackboard paint and finish one article (I am a tenure track professor so I need publications, and if I can toot my own horn for a second, my book is done and already listed on Amazon!  it comes out in January :) )

    I also want to thank you all for the support you gave me in this last cycle.

    Hugs!

    Our Twin Baby + a Big Girl Blog

    And with the delivery trifecra of one twin vaginal, one c-section with general anesthesia for twin B, Spencer and Sidney joined us at 35 weeks exactly on June 18.

  • Hi Jenna!  THanks for putting this all together! I imagine it's a lot of work, but I know we all appreciate it.  My EDD is 12/11/11, but because it's twins, my OB has already said it will be before Thanksgiving.  Hope to see your BFP soon!

     Goal of the summer: Stay out of the scorching heat as much as possible!  Oh Autumn, where are you? :) 

    Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker image Lilypie Pregnancy tickers
  • Can you add me?  Had 2nd IUI cancelled this morning.  We'll try again next cycle.
  • Thanks so much for doing this, Jenna, it's a lot of work, I know (I totally wasn't going to volunteer for it!)

    Update:  Pretty sure this is going to end up being cd1 or maybe tomorrow will be. I've got spotting going on. My temp was wonky. I'm a big ball of tears. We're going to take a break this month, and then next month do one last IUI. Meanwhile, I pray a job opens up at the company DH wants to switch to, because they cover 3 IVF cycles.  Not likely, tho.

    QOTW:  Cleaning the junk from my house.  Cleaning the basement, so that if we really are going to move in a year, we don't have to go through so much crap to do it.

     

    The joy of his first LC cupcake!

  • Will you put me on the BFP list?  I have an EDD of 2/2/12.  Update on pregnancy: is one baby with a good heart beat at 2 ultrasounds now.  There was a second empty sac too, which I am sad about, as I would have loved 2, but am super thrilled with the one that we are (hopefully) getting.

    QOTW: Get moved in!  We moved to a new house 2 weeks ago, and we are still, very much trying to get settled.

    Hoping to see more BFPs soon!

  • Update:  I've been busy and haven't been posting that much.  I finally graduated from the RE's and have already seen my OB earlier this week.  She did a quick U/S and set me up to have my NT scan done.  I did the b/w portion on Wed and next Wed I am having the U/S done.  I hope they can tell me what the baby is.  My EDD is 1/4/12, but baby will most likely come the middle of Dec via c-sec.

    QOTW:  It's gonna be a busy summer.  Next month is my DS bday and I'm so glad we are not having the party here, so much less stress and cleaning to do.  We also want to remodel both bathrooms and hope to get the kitchen started by early fall, so it's done before baby comes.  I also really need to get DS scrapbooks started...I know I'm 5 years behind.

  • We had our mock transfer this week.  I'm scheduled to start Lupron July 6 and have my transfer the last week of July.  Can't believe we're actually doing ivf.  I'm doing acupuncture which seems to help.

    I just want to enjoy my summer and finish some house projects.

  • Can you put me on the list that I'm having a girl.  She's nameless so far :)  The only new thing going on is that I'm past 22w and happy to see that point behind me.

    Looks like a lot of us have house projects going on.  This summer we are finishing the new bathroom and total redo of the upstairs of our house, the project that got started when DD was born. 

    Lots of luck to everyone!

    update - Well, after 6 moths with the re, 2 IUI cycles and 2 with too many eggs, last night I started birth control for IVF #1.  I am still really emotional about having to move to IVF and have sort of let myself shut down a bit emotionally, you know?  I know that I will be posting here a LOT as I go through IVF because I am not public about this and don't want to put it in DD's blog, you know?

    goals - do one wall in the basement with magnetic primer and blackboard paint and finish one article (I am a tenure track professor so I need publications, and if I can toot my own horn for a second, my book is done and already listed on Amazon!  it comes out in January :) )

    I also want to thank you all for the support you gave me in this last cycle.

    Hugs!

    Whoa!  Congrats on publishing!!!  Totally horn-toot worthy.  I don't want to out you so I won't ask the book, but will you share the topic or field you're in?  If not, no worries, but Congrats again!!!

    Hi Jenna!  THanks for putting this all together! I imagine it's a lot of work, but I know we all appreciate it.  My EDD is 12/11/11, but because it's twins, my OB has already said it will be before Thanksgiving.  Hope to see your BFP soon!

     Goal of the summer: Stay out of the scorching heat as much as possible!  Oh Autumn, where are you? :) 

    I have to ask, are you Team Green or can we look forward to a gender update in a few weeks?  BTW, DDs bday is 12/11 - it'll keep you lucky!  And thanks for the BFP wishes!  ;)

  • The update looks great!!!

    Update: I have been on Metformin for my PCOS and insulin resistence now for about 8 weeks.  I just had my b/w again and my insulin levels are within normal range, which is awesome.  I am also now ovulating on CD17, for the past 2 months, as opposed to CD19, so my cycle is regulating.  This is the first month we tried on our own, so we will see.  I am currently 7DPO.

    QOTW: To continue LIVING life and not etting it pass me by.  I picked up golf a few months back and recenty become certified in Reiki I.  I start the process to become Reiki II certified, within a few weeks.  I hope to have this certification by the end of the summer.

  • Thank you so much for taking on the updates Jenna!  I haven't posted in awhile, but lurk everyday.  I am so excited to see so many new BFPs.

     Update:  My due date is November 30.  We have our a/s scheduled for July 5!  I can't wait to find out what we are having.

    QOTW & non-IF update:  A couple of weeks ago my DH took a new job in MT (we live in WI, but I am originally from MT).  We are so excited to be moving closer to my family, but I am so overwhelmed with it all.  We have the house on the market and plan on moving mid/late August.  Not sure what I am going to do yet.  I am struggling with being a SAHM vs. finding a job in my 3rd trimester.  Lots of exciting and stressful things coming our way, that is for sure!

    Thanks for taking over the check-ins, Jenna! Looks great :)

    Update: My EDD is December 8, 2011. I have my a/s on July 15 but we're staying Team Green this time around :)

    QOTW: House, house, house! We moved into a house 2 years ago that we bought off the 80 yr. old original owner. The house was built in 1969 and has had NOTHING done to it since then. So far we've taken two rooms down to the studs and rebuilt them to give DD a toyroom, and also a full bathroom in the basement. We're working on completing the foyer (just have to get the wainscoting up and painted) and adding accessories to our redone family room since it looks a little bare. We've also attacked the outside this summer by cutting down old, dying trees and trimming back the wild hedges. The neighbours made a few comments so I think they're happy about it lol. We'll also be redoing the decor in DD's bedroom and the nursery. Oh, and did I mention we're hosting two exchange students (one from Spain and one from France) this summer? They're here on cultural exchanges and I'm looking forward to having them here. Boy, I'm getting tired just thinking about the next few months ahead Tongue Tied

    Lots of love and luck to everyone, and (((hugs))) to those who need them. I lurk every day and each and every one of you are in my thoughts :)

    Thank you so much for compiling this list -- and for graciously adding me! Being 'here' really helps with all that I'm dealing with.

    Update - my May Clomid cycle never ended -- I'm on CD 64 after two unsuccessful attempts to produce AF. Currently on Crinone for 10 days to surge my progesterone to try and drop it enough to bring on AF. Praying & hoping it works because I'm at my wits end and just want a cycle so my Dr can monitor me while DH is gone.

    QOTW - My DD's 2nd birthday is next weekend. I'm busy planning her party "Red, white & 2!" Lately I've just been focusing on working out and trying to calm my stress/anxiety. In late July I'll be going home to visit some family, attending my 10 year HS reunion, and then anxiously awaiting DH's return in August!

    Heck no I'm not Team Green!  I lost what little patience God gave me just trying to conceive! :)   Right now the OB is about 90% sure it's one boy, one girl, but we go back again on Wednesday and they'll take a look again.   I'll keep you posted.   And how neat would it be to have another 12/11 birthday!  If we make it that far, I'm sure I'll be asking B-Day party questions.  That's my first concern! I'm such a dork!
