  • Yep, we moved 800 miles away for DH's job.  When my dream job opened up here I took it.  Luckily my mom decided to move out here to be close to us.  There is no way we would ever be able to work full-time with both of type of jobs (he is military an…
  • Maybe they meant that 9:30 was the latest drop off that would still get breakfast?  I know at my center if you aren't there before 9:00 you don't get breakfast.
  • I am sorry to hear about the polyps, but glad that the RE was able to find something that he was able to correct. FX for good blood work results!
  • I'm still here... my government computer blocks the other site but not this one. That is my only reason haha.  Plus, I really don't like change either
  • I doubt you can skip a day.  They seem pretty strict about timing. 
  • I love my daughter's first name (her middle name is after my late sister).  However, there are sometimes that I feel like her name doesn't fit her personality at the moment.  She is such a rough little spitfire sometimes I think that a more "stron…
  • No apologies needed for any "thread-jacking!"   I am glad to see that others have similar kinds of reactions to other people's family size. The crazy thing is I am more upset about this family who I am, at best, acquaintances with adding a second c…
  • Thanks ladies. I wasn't expecting anything other than a BFN. This was our last ditch effort before the very recommended IUI. What sucks is that AF still hasn't come yet. Damn Clomid Fing with my LP!!
  • Hey, sorry about CD1. I got a nice fat BFN today at 12DPO. Zero symptoms so I am expecting AF tomorrow, right before I get on the road for my 14 hour road trip.
  • Drive through the night. We travel from NC to IN a few times a year. It is 12 hours driving, around 14 or so with stops.  We have always traveled during the day, but at DD gets older, it gets more and more awful.  The stress level of one parent tr…
  • Unless you temp dips again, I would say that is O day.  It is just too early to tell though, without more temps.
  • I have started stalking the One and Done board.  I don't know why I feel so pessimistic about our future.  I guess I am just trying to prepare myself.  Also, I refuse to pack tampons for my out of state vacation.  AF is due right in the middle, bu…
  • Meds suck.  Cry away!
  • We leave for Indiana on Thursday after I get off work (12 hour drive for us).  I said screw it and finally just hired a cleaning lady to come and clean my house before the house/dog sitter comes (my stress has lessen considerably since I made that c…
  • I have heard BS talk about the idea that IVF is forcing the body to reproduce when it doesn't want to do it on its own, and that can cause an increased risk of not having a healthy embryo. Just like my former OB who told me that I shouldn't take p…
  • chloebeth930 said: I unfourtantly have a short LP. With DD I tested at 8DPO and got a clear positive. I always start spotting around 7DPO if I am not pregnant, so if I was KU I would know by 10DPO (even without a test). Plus let's be honest …
  • My SIL sent me flowers. They were by my bed at home when I got home from my D&C. The card didn't mention anything about pregnancy/baby, just saying that she was thinking about me and loves me. Her and I have a strained relationship now, but I …
  • Also, 10DPO falls on Christmas, so not getting a BFN Christmas morning would be great universe, so let's see what you can do about that. Eeeek good luck. I don't think I could bring myself to test 10dpo on Christmas Day!! Even when I have been …
  • Clomid lengthens my LP considerably. 
  • Dear Diary, I really really do not want to fill out my self-evaluation section on my performance plan.  I will continue to put that off until January. I hope that I will be able to survive a trip home for the holidays.  Between SIL being 9 months …
  • I'm on call this week for work, so no special plans for us.  We leave next Thursday to head North to visit family for the holidays for 10 days, so just preparing for that. 
  • That is for single.
  • DH has severe MFI (only 2% of his swimmers move forward).  I feel like if we aren't doing IUI, then we are really just admitting defeat.  I am now trying to wrap my head around how many IUI I would be willing to put myself through (and also pay OO…
  • Unexplained IF is no fun.  It is even worse almost when all your tests come back normal.  Maybe she is just wanting you to chart to confirm O and make sure you aren't missing your fertile window?  Trying to take the least invasive route first.  …
  • Sounds good.  I always opt for overdressed anyway.  I would add a larger statement necklace if your cardi is plain.  A little sparkle for the holidays
  • Military family here... moving is our middle name.  I would do a giftcard for a place that they can order food from.  If they already have their house, maybe a giftcard to a cleaning service that can come in a do a move in cleaning.
  • Bathe every other day (wash hair at each bath time).  New clothes and PJs everyday.  Sometimes I even put on different PJs for nap and bedtime.  I attempt to brush her teeth in the morning and at night, but we often forget in the morning. 
  • We have a few gyms on location of where I work (working for the military has it perks sometimes).  If I am really working hard (like doing a class or something) and I sweat up a storm then I shower.  If I don't sweat, or just a little I baby wipe …
  • I'm starting to get to the point where announcements make me feel staby.  The ones where their DC #1 is younger than my DD are the worst.  It is like just more of a realization that I have been trying for so long.
  • Thanks!  I know around O time that it feels like my ovaries have been punched for like 3 days straight.  Hoping I can turn the crazy down a notch.
  • Maybe like twice a month, and that is probably streching it. The sad thing is, my work will let me have an hour lunch break and I could hit up one of the gyms that are free here on the military base I work out, and yet, I still don't do it.
  • Noooo.  Noo SFF.  Clomid is making me ragey and if DH comes near me I might just cut off his weiner.  Then we will really have some MFI issues.
  • The cashier was correct. Worst case scenario, Target takes returns without a receipt as long as you have a picture ID with you.
  • Hey ladies. Just had our appointment with our RE. Everything on my end has come back normal, but DH only has 2% of his sperm swimming forward. Only cycle 2 of Clomid and DH is starting the fertilaide men's vitamins this month (hey, anything is bet…
  • Thanks for the suggestion.  When we go pick up the cup I'll ask them.
  • sailorgal said: Mouths are full of bacteria so I'd venture to say definitely not. - Point well made.  I didn't even think of that!
  • H (<yes, that is right no Dear for him) bitches more than anyone I know about lack of sleep.  Last night DD 2.5 wet the bed.  It was the first time doing it and she was hysterical.  He was so annoyed that he was tired and we couldn't get her ba…
  • I had some pretty nasty achy/cramps while ovulating on Clomid.
  • I am slowly starting to feel that way.  I started to notice it after DD hit the age to where I would have wanted to already been pregnant. It is also hard when I notice people who are pregnant with number 2 who have a DC who is my daughter's age. 
  • It sounds like you are leaning more towards the surgery. It would be a hard choice, but for myself I would want to do the least invasive procedure first (the shot). Yes, it could bench my bf for a while, but if the other option is surgery and a pos…
