Hey ladies, I won't be able to get to everyone else's journals today but wanted to hop on... trying hard to keep my journal up
Sam - even if they charge you to come in, I'd pay! I mean, when he told us you can come in on Sunday or just skip that cycle... I'm thinking, but what if your date ends up being on a Sat for a few months? You just keep canceling?!?! Grrr!
Jeni - have you decided about potentially doing a November IUI yet?? You have no idea how much I'm hoping the timing works out for you so you can do it! I've done 3 Clomid cycles, and once I had a + on CD15, but that month it was also + on CD16 so I think I'd be ok. Since the egg lasts around 24 hours, even if I got my + on CD15 and couldn't go in until CD17, I think it would be ok. I looked at FF and saw lots of BFP charts where they had CH's the day before IUI! So, I'm thinking good thoughts!!!
Operation OPK... I'm attempting to hold out until CD12! But, I never last that long!
Judy - I'm stalking you too! And pumped to see spotting and not flow marked!!!
Sarah - I don't actually get to do 3 IUI's I book 3 on the dates I think I might get a + OPK based on previous cycles. So, mine are booked for CD 15, 17, and 18. If I don't get a + OPK on CD14, I call and cancel my appt for the next day. I do that until I get my +
My doc doesn't do monitored cycles until you get to the injectable stage so it's all my best guessing game which makes things very stressful!
Christy - Yup, I'm willing to be our day will be the Sunday! CD15 is way too early for me and on Clomid CD 18 is late! So, the 17th sounds like a great day to meet with the turkey baster!
OMG do I get to see pics of you and hubby all dressed up soon? Bret Michaels is actually here on Saturday performing... I'm working nights so I may have to go for a visit and attempt to meet the dude! Ok, that will never happen because anytime I've had the opportunity to do that, I've chickened out!
Nikki - I want this for both of us! I'm not far behind you in my journey, both timewise and what we've had for MA so far... so I know how you feel... we're cycle buddies so we have good motivation to get the heck outta ttc#1!!
Jackie - thanks hon! I know you helped me through the stress of the planning and waiting last month, I'm using all the same methods again, and I just have to learn to relax and know that my body does well with OPK's and they haven't steered me wrong yet!
Ok, so for an update... not much going on again! I work nights this weekend so will start temping on Monday which will be CD11 for me. It feels weird not to worry about temping, but it's been nice to just sleep in when I can! My OPK regiment will be the same as last time... using the Fertility Monitor (which, I have to say, I don't think I'd really recommend it to anyone, I can see how easy it would be to miss your surge given that you only test 1st thing in the am, and it is very expensive! I only bought it at the recommendation of my acupuncturist, but as soon as I'm out of sticks, I'm going to sell it!) using digi's when it's close, I bought the regular Clearblue OPK's, which they are just expensive and tested + the same time as everything else, didn't give me any earlier indication... and of course will stick with my trusty Wondfo's!
I'm still doing acupuncture, haven't been in a couple weeks because I was out of town, but I'm going tonight! Can't wait to have my nap
Today is my last dose of Clomid, so only a week to go before the real fun begins!!!
