DH was better BUT he was never able to finish and I honestly wasn't into it. O OK is still just flashing, so we'll give it another go tonight. We have a school function and won't be home until 9. Hopefully time won't matter. Yay for the weekend!

Paula have a fantastic time at your retreat tonight. Hopefully treatment for your DH wasn't rushed and he truly is ready to come today/tomorrow.


Sheila once all the little details are done, the renovations will be well worth all the chaos. Cramping sucks, but it could be egg snuggling in for the long haul. BABY Dust!!


Pamela the Power of Prayer is an awesome thing. Way to go for friends/family stepping up to help you and DH out. This TWW hopefully will fly right by.


Leia let the nesting begin. I never experienced it with either one of my pregnancies. I love the monkey theme. Will the chair even be ready in time for baby's arrival?


It is already 7:45 and I haven't got my boys up to get ready. I'll get on later once I get the boys off for school.

I'm not testing until at least 13dpo. My goal is to hold off until 14dpo but have a feeling I will be drawn to testing that Saturday. LOL

Hello everyone... Sorry Ive been missing in action.. Hopefully some of you will remember me back in Feb we went to see our Fertility specialist and was told initially that we should consider an egg donor which of course left us a lot to think about. We dont have like egg donation banks here so its a process of finding a donor. After our blood tests we decided to try a few rounds of IUI so we can say we have tried and to a.so feel like we are trying something while trying to find a donor. So on this past monday we had our first IUI and I am 6dpo we are supposed to test on 24 March if AF doesnt show... Not feeling too excited... Trying not to have expectations... Im not sure what if any symptoms you might have at 6dpo but ive never really been very atune to my body so dont know if the occassional cramping twinge is anything at all hoping to catch up on all the news here

Let me just say I seriously hate DH's meds. He went from 12.5 to 25 mg. it's a super low dosage, but it cause issues for DH. Usually about the time I'm in my fertile window. Did I mention that I finally got a solid smiley on OPK this evening? Tested when I got home from school function. I am trying not to get worked up over it, but I'm just so freaking frustrated. Tomorrow is a new day and maybe we get a chance to BD and all my whining is for nothing. Although I tend to ovulate pretty quickly after I finally get a positive OPK. BLAH!!

Rae was the shopping therapeutic? The way I'm feeling I'd need to spend at least a grand to have it be therapeutic.


Pamela I hope you have the will power to wait to test until 13/14 DPO. I won't even have a reason to test this month the rate we're going.


Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. I will be spending most of it cleaning my house. We have so much crap accumulating around here. It's a mini version of Horders here.

Last night driving home, (TMI) I almost threwup in my mouth. This morning I have indigestion and seems like everything is going crazy on me and I'm feeling "worried" about everything. Things I shouldnt even worry about. I woke up this morning from bad nightmares. Tornadoes all around and I was trying hard to help everyone but noone was listening. Anyway....trying to not get my hopes up. But I really want this to happen this month b/c I could use some good news.

Yeah? My temps are about the same before O and going slightly different than normal after. So we'll see! I hope! =) Your temps are looking really different than normal. Looks more like they are climbing....

I don't really have anything new to say other then that I talked to DH yesterday about waiting the full 6 months to ttc. We both definitely agree that we need to wait at least the 3 months to get my folic acid built back up and I guess we will go from there....

I think my cold is pretty much gone BUT now the allergies have hit!!! We have had some really high pollen days the past week or so The past 3 nights I have been woken up with what feels like af cramps sooo I am hoping that means that my body is about to regulate itself!!! Also I haven't had any spotting today!!! That is awesome (although in a couple of weeks I should hopefully start af but since I have been on the bcp I am hoping it will be a light one!) especially since after they gave me the shot on Feb 24th I have spotted EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!!

Also DH and I bd yesterday for the first time in about 3 weeks. I have to say I was a bit nervous afterward because we didn't use a back up method but I am betting that since my HCG just now got down to a normal level that there was no way I would O that quickly!!!!!

Well I guess I had a little more to say then what I thought I did I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Renee, have DH finish in a soft cup and then insert it. Whatever it takes right. I feel your frustration. I'm frustrated as well. Spotting again this morning. Feeling like I'm pretty much out. Katy, I'm really glad to hear you are getting back to normal. I hate bcp pills. I think 3 months is a good choice. How much Folic acid are you taking now?

My OB told me to take 800 mcg and that is what is in my prenatals so I have just been taking one of them a day. I have also been trying to eat more foods with folic acid and folate in them: salad (with extra spinach), bread, cereal, pinto beans, and broccoli just to name a few.

I am so sorry that you are still spotting I know how frustrating that is!!!

Yes, I don't care for bcp so I am not sure if I will even keep taking them for the whole 3 months. I just basically wanted to use them to try and get my body regulated..I hate the side effects Plus I can't help but worry that they might mess my cycles up despite what my OB said I think our bodies are more fickle then what our OB's and others think they are!!!

Girl I'm with you. I don't really trust what Dr's tell me anymore. What they know to do it prescribe you something. You have to you use your own judgement. I probably wouldn't take them after this month either. Let your body do what it's going to do on it's own. Use other protection during the man time. That way in three month's time you'll be ready.

This more than likely will be my last month trying. After tonight and the arguement with my DH... I'm done. He really hurt my feelings and I'm starting to question if he will ever handle if I ever have issues in life or will deal with me not being able to do things while I'm pregnant. I can see him trying to have me lift a 100 lb bumper 8 months pregnant and just say 'suck it up'. Apparently I use my heart issues as a crutch and just take some vitiman B and stop holding him down. Along with a couple of things he said that REALLY pissed me off and is changing some things in my life. sorry to be drama here....but this was the last straw. I'm hurt.

Pamela, I think it's safe to say we all know that men are idiots and say the wrong things at the right time. I hope he can make it up to you somehow.

Unfotunately he can't. Had yet another argument and he dug himself deeper. I really feel it's changed alot of things between us. He demands I stand behind him no matter what but cant seem to love me enough to understand what bothers me. I made it very clear while we were dating and told him all about it and now it's an issue. It's truly hurt me down deep today. With my luck, I will be pregnant.

I'm sorry Pam, men are such jerks. I never thought I'd say this here but I'll pray you're not pregnant if that's what you really want.

Pam--I'm so sorry that you are having a hard time right now. I'm with Rae, I can pray for you not to be pregnant, if you would like. Until you tell us that, I will simply pray for peace in your life. In the meantime--vent away. No matter what happens, take care of yourself--and listen to your body! {{Hugs}}

Rae--I won't believe you are out of it until AF shows...I have HIGH hopes for you this month!!!

Rahni--Welcome back! FX'd for you!!!

Leia--How's the nesting going?

Renee--Still hopeful that you were able to DTD or use a softcup to chase the egg

AFM--I just got home from my retreat. The true purpose of it was to prepare for my confirmation within the Catholic church. But, I had a lot of private, personal time to spend praying and reflecting on things. I have always known that He has a plan for our family--but, now I feel it in the bottom of my soul. I am filled with a sense of peace. I didn't realize how much I needed that. I've truly come to terms with my m/c and am now ready to face either a BFN or a BFP. It will all be okay

You know my deep desire for a child. A little one to love and to hold, to care for,
to cherish. Grant that my body may conceive and give birth to a beautiful, healthy baby in Your holy image.
Guide me in all my choices so that this conception, my pregnancy and my baby's birth are in line with Your will. Heavenly Father and Holy Mother, hear this prayer of my heart, mind and spirit.
Amen.
