Oh sweet!!! That would make things REALLY easy! Then I can either get him to go there, or take the dang sample myself and not have to fuss with him at all!!

I am so glad that you have an appointment in place (just wishing you didn't have to make it!).. I've been thinking about you, but can completely understand the time that you needed to just step away from it all. HUGS!

Hey Nikki-

I totally know where you are coming from...
Each month it just got tougher and tougher...
But, once you get that second line (and it will be SOON!!) then it will all be the distant past!

So glad that you have your appointment lined up and it is so soon...
If you do need to schedule eventually with the OB, tell them to call you if they have a cancellation - I was able to get a next day appointment that way (instead of one that was 2 months away)

Crossing everything that it all comes back normal, that you have a great DR who actually reads through your charts, and is proactive and helpful - BIG
!

That's a great idea Tonya! I never even thought about that!

I'm starting to get to the point I hoped I wouldn't get to... where I heavy sigh whenever I think about TTC. It almost feels like "Oh yay... another month where I get to wait to O, BD like bunnies and then wait for the giant disappointment that will surely come." It's kind of depressing. However, I am hopeful that I'll have a new more positive outlook after my appointment.

I'm feeling kinda meh about my temps. They're at a higher level than my usual Pre-O temps. Even Danny has commented on them. I'm not super worried or anything, they might start dropping in the days leading up to O. It could also be due to the seasonal change, according to FF, temps during the cooler months are higher than temps during the warmer months. Makes no sense to me... but hey, they've got the data to back it up... so I'll go with it for now.

Another rainy day here in good ol Delaware... all of the animals are passed out. Statler is curled up next to me on the sofa, Waldorf is still in the bed, Cinder is on the other sofa and Mau (Hera) is curled up in a ball in the corner between the fireplace and the wall.

I am so happy that the leaves are actually changing this year. We haven't had an autumn like this in the past few years... the leaves seemed to go from green to dead to on the ground. This year we're having an explosion of reds and oranges and yellows... I had to get some pictures over the weekend.

your temps aren't too crazy, they were at 97.7 until 9-10 DPO last cycle and then dropped, so i'd say you're still safe!

I can't wait to hear how your appt goes so i can have an idea of how mine might go.

Glad you guys liked the pics.

They are in the same range as last month. Last month was the first time they stayed that high. I used to be between 97.3 and 97.5 with an occasional stray high temp.

This is also the first time I've charted during this time of the year, so like I said, it may be the seasonal shift.

Thanks Marci... I really hope so too. I don't really know what to expect. I mean, from looking at my charts I seem to be ovulating normally. So I don't know if they'll recommend medication or what. Maybe my O isn't strong enough. I dunno. I know that my temp shifts haven't been as big as they had been months ago, but I don't know if that actually means anything, ya know?

Hi Nikki!

I've been off the boards for a while now...just started my new job this week, so things are nutty around here, but wanted to pop in and let you know I've been thinking about you!!

Stay well!

Thanks Karin!

So... today is grocery day. I'm getting ready to get dressed and go pick up my mom. Since dad's eyes have gone wonky and he's not to drive much, I take her for some errands every few weeks.

5 more days til my appt!

I've spent the morning having my coffee and checking up on everyone. Apparently it's National Internet Day... so I got my time in already! HA!

I'll check back in once I'm done with all my running and such.

Hope everyone is having a great day!!

I'm glad your appointment is in place because I can totally relate to how you feel about another month, O time, BD time, and then getting your hopes up. I hope they will be able to give you some answers because I know that you have lots of info to give them, like your charts. Your photos are beautiful! I love the color changes, I live in the south so we don't really have color changes. The leaves are either green, dying or gone

I hope you're feeling a little better and hope you have a great Halloween!

Thanks for sharing the pics of the beautiful Fall leaves, especially for the sake of displaced east coast girls like me. It's so funny, we drink Pumpkin Spice lattes and spiced cider and have pumpkin patches etc... yet everything around us looks EXACTLY like it did all summer!

I can't wait to hear how your appointment goes, I really hope it's helpful or at the VERY least gets you headed somewhere helpful!

Mandy - I know the feeling. We lived in California for 10 years and I always thought it was so weird to open your Christmas presents and then go play outside in shorts!

It just seems like it's been so long since I've gotten to enjoy all the seasonal things about living on the East Coast, because the weather has been so... strange. This year, it actually looks and feels like the season it is, ya know? Now if we can get snow this winter... I'll have hit the jackpot!! I'm so jealous of the people in Colorado right now!! HA HA!!!

So... had to go buy a BIGGER litter box and better cat litter today. These boys are... a handful. Poor Mau, she's such a dainty little princess and these boys are so big and cumbersome and messy... she won't even go in the community litter box anymore. She uses the one on the breezeway. You see, the boys haven't figured out the cat flaps to get out there yet, so it's like she has her own space for when she doesn't want to be bothered. LOL!

Dunno if we'll have to worry about anybody out and about for Mischief Night tonight... My errands are done, my Trick or Treat candy has been poured into a giant bowl, I've got Secret Sister treats to nibble on... so I think it may be time to light up the fireplace and kick back for some scary television. I looove Halloween!!

Hope you're all having a Frightening Friday!!!
