  • Thanks everyone for the reassurance that he really was a giant dick.

    @kiki75 My foot hurts like a mother today. When they were doing xrays I had to contort it weirdly. I should know by Wednesday what's up.

    @lulu1180 I feel you completely. There was a grad thread recently where it seemed like literally everyone was pregnant in the first 3 months of trying and here we are over here, patiently waiting for some bloody miracle. Creepy internet hugs and know that if you (or anyone else) wants to vent, send me a PM and I will always respond with creepy internet hugs and internet tequila.

  • @RunRestRepeat Thank you!  It's nice to know my absence was noticed.

    @JuneRoseRuby @Dilynne Thanks ladies!  I never thought I would be one to obsess over TTC like this and (obviously) never thought I would have to consider medical intervention to get pregnant.  You ladies just help to show exactly why I came back.  The support here is always so amazing and I would miss it if I had chosen not to come back.  Fx so hard for everyone here that we all get BFPs soon!

  • @KhRun17 aww flower sounds so cute!

    @laurad75 I hope you IUI went well!

    @Ohemgee my periods have gotten really light & short too & im worried. I keep mine on the nightstand. I tried keeping it under my pillow but I was so worried about knocking it out or off the bed that I woke up & checked too much

    @Kiki75 thanks for the advice!  I *think* I'm starting to get watery CM (although I still struggle with it) so I'll go get some tomorrow!

  • @laurad75 that is crazy that an orgasm can mess up implantation. That had never crossed my mind

    Littler nerdy science for you all. Well the reason for the male orgasm has always been obvious, but the reason behind the female orgasm has always been mysterious. Current science suggests that the female orgasm originally occurred to assist with ovulation. So now I currently think that an orgasm pops out an egg! Talk about BSC

    I honestly hate sex/oral in TWW partly for this reason lol I tried googling before and it seems inconclusive for female orgasm. Since I don't orgasm from penetration it's not a huge deal for me since it seems intercourse is fine but I still worry cuz I'm super paranoid lol 
    eta: some even say it's good because of increased blood flow to uterus and that progesterone somehow prevents uterine contractions?! I dunno, I'm going to keep looking lol (obviously medical interventions are different and I'd never ignore or imply someone should ignore medical advice, if that was unclear...just looking for my sanity ;) )

  • @laurad75 FX for your IUI!  And interesting about orgasm...

    @Ohemgee I also keep mine on my nightstand.

    Cycles/Month:  4/6 (2/2 AL)

    CD: 1

    WAYDTGKU: Charting, temping, PNVs, fish oil, ubiquinol, magnesium, reducing caffeine but green tea while WTO, started on low dose aspirin for kicks, aiming to HIO EOD during FW.

    R/R:  Just feeling discouraged, annoyed at CD1, and having to leave paradise (Maui) to go back home to reality today.

    CS/Q: Not yet. I think I just finished my first "ovulatory" (but not pg) chart in FF - never confirmed how long my luteal phase was before.

    GTKY: what was your favourite hallowe'en cosume that you've ever worn? (pics if you want!)

    Hmm...last year FH and I were wine and cheese - that was fun and pretty easy.  It was also our first Halloween together.  I've also liked the adult Minnie Mouse costume dress because my mother would never buy the Minnie Mouse dress from Disneyland for me as a kid :p

  • Waiiiiit wait wait @laurad75 was it your RE who told you that about orgasming?? I don't believe an orgasm actually causes the uterus to contract or anything so I'm not sure how that could possibly be a problem.  Anyone have an actual source on this? I am cautiously and respectfully calling bullshit on this.

  • @antoto it was the nurse who did my IUI not the doctor.

    She didn't say 'absolutely don't have sex', it was more she suggested that to be super safe I skip sat/sun bc that when implantation would probably be and if an orgasm caused a contraction it could cause a problem. Gosh, I'm so sorry. If I knew it would stress everyone out I would have requested more specific details. Also, the only reason she mentioned it was because I asked if sex tonight/ tomorrow is ok (yes) which prompted the conversation. It's not like she handed me instructions that said don't have sex on certain days.

  • Cycles/Month: cycle 2/Month 1

    CD: 13

    WAYDTGKU: Havent had a real period in 5 years thanks to my Mirena. I'm BBT with FF, using OPK's, prenatals, preseed (I'm doubting my CM. I've never seen myself produce EWCM ever...)

    R/R: I'm furious with my opk's. Yesterday's opk looked like today would be positive. Nope. Actually it's been significantly lighter than yesterday's. I didn't have a temp spike so I didn't ovulate. Here's to hoping tomorrow we are headed back in the right direction. 

    CS/Q: not right now... 

    GTKY: what was your favourite hallowe'en cosume that you've ever worn? (pics if you want!)
    My husband and our besties went as Pokémon. Yes we are huge dorks.
