I guess it's just not in God's plan for us right now---the last 4 months, my DH has been working out of state since last September, coming home every 20 days. I'm SO grateful he still has a job--the company he works for had mass layoffs and he was spared. WHEW! But here's my only rub (well, besides missing my teddy bear )---when he comes home---I'M ON MY CYCLE!!! How in the heckola are we to even TTC when he ain't even here!!! ARGH!!!!!!!! Please feel free to make jokes about this, as any sort of laughter will be helpful...I think we will be able to meet back up with him in March/April as we're going to have to relocate for the job, but meanwhile, it's purdy frustrating

Hugs to you. That is so frustrating. There was a stretch in time when my SO was working out of town for a month at a time, so I know how you feel. Hopefully soon times will match up for you!

THank you friend, and you're right---we're just not telling anyone we're TTC, so these virtual hugs do mean a lot...thank you...

Sorry this cycle won't be (re-)productive.

hey, can you do a roadtrip and visit him for your fertile time or go with him for one of the cycles?

awww HUGS! I miss my hubby too when he is out of town and I get inraged when he isn't around when Oing! Not at him becuase he can't help it, but just mad that a cycle is wasted.

You could always have his spermies at the dr office frozen and do IUI when he is out of town. Not sure how old you are but this would be a good option if you are older so you don't waste any cycles trying. There is the cost factor though....

BIG FAT HUGE HUGS!

It is SO hard, when we hear that bomb shelter siren blaring (forget about the clock ticking, the alarm has been going off forever) and we feel that our time is quickly running out.

If your schedule doesn't allow you to visit him out of town and he isn't going to be home during the right days, perhaps you should consider IUI?

Good Luck and KUP

Thank and bless ALL OF YOU!!! Sorry I wasn't online----DH was home for 4 days, before heading out to the NE and then tomorrow, back SE...oy. I'm SO grateful for his job--which isn't just a mantra I tell myself to feel better I truly do feel that way ...and yes, that isn't just a bio clock but a blaring horn, LOL! I just read an article about Samantha Brown--dont know if y'all heard of her, but she has a travel show that I've loved watching for years---well, she just gave birth to XX/XY twins at the *beautiful* age of 43---seeing that lightened my mood as I'm 'only' 38 .

IUI---never thought about it before--but that certainly does NOT mean I'm not going to go educate myself on it now. In fact, I have a SIL who's 1st born was conceived that way as she has PCOS.

If it wasn't for my faith, I'd be truly and deeply bummed out; I know faith (or religion) isn't for everyone, so I'm not about to shove that down people's throats...I just keep feeling that somehow things will work out--and with everything else in my life so far, when I *LEAST* expect it, LOL!---thanks for posting as I didn't know if I was real in my feelings or just being whiny...much love to all of you!!!
