Happy Monday everyone! It is hard to believe that it is only a week away and Christmas will be here! This year has just flown by!
On to our Monday Moans!!!
Mine is that I am very frustrated with my body right now. I was hoping that I ovulated early but my temps don't confirm that. In fact, they are ALL OVER THE PLACE! It is horrible. I think I had another +opk last night...but I didn't put it on my chart because...well I don't know why...I am not sure that it was completely positive or just REALLY close! Next cycle I think I am definitely just going to spend the extra $$ and get digitals. That is so much easier! I have been going back and forth on whether I want to do another round of IUI and I decided I will try it again next cycle. It's possible that I will ovulate from the right side and not left so I will just have to wait and see what my body decides to do. I don't really get O pains so I never really know.
Anyway...does anyone else have anything they want to moan about today?
My moan is that buddy had to stick me 3 times this morning in order to draw blood for my monitoring appointment. My good vein is completely collapsed from having 10 blood draws from it in the past week, so he tried my bad arm and hit a nerve TWICE while digging around for it. The one in my good hand exploded yesterday when they took blood, so he had to do it from my wrist in the other. I am REALLY hoping that I trigger tonight so that I can stop having blood draws for a couple of weeks!!!
New siggie coming soon!
Me: Autoimmune (Hashimotos and Fibromyalgia), vitamin D and calcium deficiency. Treated with Synthroid, supplements, TCM and acupuncture.
DH: Severe MFI (low counts, low motility, poor morphology and high antibodies), likely caused by poor liver function. Treated with Clomid to increase total counts.
DD: Conceived after 1 year of TTC with progesterone to correct LPD (likely caused by undiagnosed thyroid dysfunction). Born Aug 2009 via c/s after an induction due to pre-e and HELLP.
TTC #2 since Oct10 with an early loss in Aug 2011. Post-wash counts are too low for IUI to be successful, so moving on to IVF/ICSI in May 2014!
IVF/ICSI #1 (May 2014): Estrogen priming and antagonist protocol, including acupuncture and prayer!

I can totally relate muffin!!! The lady stuck me four times last week before she finally got blood. So I have bruises all over my hands and arms
Well apparently my body wants to take its sweet time in having my lovely monthly visitor show up!!! I just want it over with!!! I don't want to be on AF and Clomid while my family is in town next week. I hardly get to see them since we live so far away and I don't want to be an emotional train wreck. Also hoping the NP would already get her butt in gear and call me this morning!!! I am tired of waiting!!!
My moan is that
A. I am having some sort of fish allergy and have itchy bumps on my arms and legs since Saturday night The pharmacist assured my that benadryl is safe...but I am so worried its going to hurt my chances this month
B. I was running late this AM and left my phone at home.
C. I still don't know what I want to get DH for X-mas!! ( If you read my post about the aquarium, well thats out now. I decided to break the surprize and ask him if he would like that, and at first he was excited, but then he said I should get hime something else small instead...he doesn't want me to spend all that money now WTH!!)
Moan: Just that its monday- and I REALLY don't want to be at work. My head is in the clouds thinking about a BFP between Christmas & New Years and I really just want the Holidays to be here!!
I think we could be cycle/testing buddies. FX we both get a nice BFP during the holdiays when are you going to test? I am shooting to hold out until 14 DPO (yeah right )which would be on the 28th of Dec.
Morning ladies, my moan is that Im super stressed about the holidays and work! I am VERY thankful that I got a surprise promotion last week but the additional work right before the holidays is super stressful! And I still have a ton of stuff to buy for Christmas gifts, as well as getting the house ready for my parents who are coming into town this weekend! :gah:
Not to mention I am 7 dpo, have ZERO symptoms, and stupid low, flat temps. Not very hopeful this month...

Monday Moans: My mother is driving crazy over this one XMAS gift for Chace. I ordered the **** Lexippad a few weeks ago because that's what she wanted to get him for XMAS. She calls me today and wants to exchange it for the Tabeo because the Lexipad is too advanced for him. Well now I have to drive up to TRU about 10 miles from the house because they are the only store near us that have the Tabeo in stock . Not to mention its raining and I've worked all day
Oh ladies, I am sorry we are all having a crappy Monday.
My Moans: I am tired, though I stayed in bed later today because I had hives. I called into work, there was no way I was coming in on Monday covered in hives and cranky. Nobody would have appreciated that.
I think AF left but just a long stretch of this cycle ahead of me. It feels like forever away that I will be able to test again. I wish you could just try everyday untill you get it. Not once a month.
Stressing sooo! much about money. With Christmas here and my normal money anxiety heightened I am more cranky than usual. I just hope we come out on the other side of Christmas not totally broke.
Other than those I am okay. Still a little sad about AF showing this month but being very proactive about this month. Going to get vitamins after work. Any cheap ones that you recommend?
Love all of you ladies and I hope everyone's day gets better!
Oh! And dlammers, I am so sorry your body is being cruel. I hope it straightens out soon!
My moan is that I am sick and really wanted to take a sick day but I cannot because I have some executives in town that will be at work today and tomorrow.
My other moan is that I am worried that my DH and I did not get any good timing this cycle because I ovulated so early and was not expecting it. I got a positive first thing in the morning (only tested because my CM was watery) and we baby danced that night and the next morning. Other than that, we didn't do anything. I'm hoping that was good enough. I ended up ovulating the next day so basically I got to BD on 0-1 and 0 so hopefully that was enough of a shot.
Dlammers - I hope your body gets with the program soon! We want you to ring in the new year with a pregnant belly!!
Mindy & Josh Mama to 3 beautiful girls!

Glad I'm not the only one who is having a bad Monday.
My Monday moan is actually more like a scream. My nerves are all over the place right now which I'm sure is from the clomid. One minute I'm screaming n d next I feel like crying. I have never felt like this b4. I've been on clomid for years and this is d first time its affected me like this. I'm thinking I'm 1-2dpo I'm unsure cuz I couldn't find my thermometer this morning so I had to get up n look for it and now I can't use that temp. Then my Mil mess is getting on my nerves. I'm in my room woo sahing
This is the first day of my intersession class and I have spent almost 12 hours on the computer doing work! I have 2 more assignments due tomorrow and I have a feeling they will take just as long. I was tempted to start on them tonight but I am getting tired of looking at this screen
My DH has to work until 2:30 this morning.
Had a -OPK this morning although I was expecting it. I should O sometime this week though
