Yay for losing 4 pounds! I am so sorry about the seqestration! I do not really know that much about it. I hope Congress can overturn it soon!

Natural cycle ( I haven't had a non medicated cycle since July! )

We threw a great sequestration party on Saturday! We had a small gathering of about 10 or so people, so it was rather intimate. Our friends brought the greatest foods. Like I mentioned previously we served imitation (Walmart brand) Little Debbie swiss cake rolls and Walmart brand plain potato chips. Our guests brought: brownies, generic rice crispie treats, and some spicy cream cheese dip (it tasted good, but looked terrible!). The best dish was this Ramen noodle salad. It was awesome! And it tasted pretty good too! We also drank Natural Ice, Milwaukee's best beer and 2 buck chuck! We all joked about how we will be poor and that we will be hanging out at each other's houses this summer. My one neighbor joked that she will be selling all of her furniture to go on vacation! Ok, so the sequestration isn't funny, but you got to laugh right!

TTC: We will try naturally this cycle, but I don't hold out any hope that it will work. I'll likely learn of my lap surgery date this week for possible endo. Again, really hoping that they find something, like stage I or II endo. Our current plan for ttcing is: natural this cycle and next. Endo surgery at the end of April. Natural cycle in May and June. July FET. Natural cycle in August and September and then IVF #2 in October. Hopefully something will occur naturally, but again, we probably have about a 2% chance of that happening.

Tomorrow and Wednesday I will be in Columbus, OH for a conference. The conference is for my LDI (Leadership Development Institute) program. It should be a fun conference. The weather is supposed to be bad both of our travel days, though. I won't be on the boards Tuesday or Wednesday, but I'll be back on Thursday.

Happy Monday everyone!

I'm glad your broke *ss party went well, sounds like fun. I like your thinking about making the best of a bad situation, good to know youre all in it together!

Thats one heck of a plan you have for the next few months, I really hope your body does its thing all by itself and you dont need it though!

Hope your trip goes well and the weather doesnt end up being too bad

Cycle 5 billion ???, ok, maybe cycle #20?, CD 11

I thoroughly enjoyed my LDI conference on Tuesday and Wednesday. I met a lot of great people and I look forward to working with them in the future. However, this program is going to take up sooooo much of my time. It will be worth it, but I may be a bit more absent on these boards. Much more than I anticipated.

Cycle wise, nothing new, natural cycle. BDing every other day until O is confirmed, which I will do with CP and CM, not by temping. I'm hoping that by not temping, I will be more relaxed about ttcing. I also won't get my hopes up when my LP is longer than 10 dpo and above coverline.

Hoping you O soon. Maybe it's a good thing that the conference keeps you busy. We understand that you have a work life.

Thanks ladies for the support! You guys are the best! Sadly, I have almost zero hope that anything will happen naturally, but it's still worth a shot.

Oh, I left another vm for RE about scheduling my laproscopy and I haven't received a call back. I've been waiting over a week!

I hope that you hear from the RE soon. That's really frustrating that they haven't called you back yet. I hate it when doctors take forever to call. It's like, "There's a real person here waiting for results!! Call now!" *lol*

So I received a call back from RE late today stating that they received my vms but that they still don't have anything scheduled for me! I plan to call them every day next week until something is scheduled! Seriously, not that difficult to schedule a surgery! Ugh.....

Ok ladies, so it looks like I worried a little too much about my weight. In two weeks (since I found out about failed IVF), I have lost 5.5 lbs! That is the total weight gained during IVF. So I'm back to my pre-stimming weight. I still want to lose at least another 3.5 lbs, but I'm excited in knowing that it shouldn't take me that long to do it. The plan is to be at least 3.5 lbs thinner (if not more) prior to my lap surgery.

Just wanted to share good news. My journal has been a bit of a bummer lately!

Congratulations on the weight loss! Losing weight is one of the best feelings ever. I love stepping on the scale to find I have lost.
