Hey ladies,

Thanks for the support.

Not feeling well today. Actually, I have been feeling a bit ill since Tuesday night. I thought it was from travelling, the food I was eating, the glass of wine I had, allergies, etc...but now I'm not really sure what's wrong with me. I'm having lots of sinus issues, tired and dizzy--but less dizzy with increased sinus meds. So, I'm guessing it's allergies, but it could be a virus. I don't know.

TTC: No signs of O. I was starting to have some signs, but I think this illness is going to push O back. I probably won't O until after day 20, like I used to.....We'll keep trying, but it's seriously hopeless without MA.

This week will be a busy work week for me. It will likely go by very quickly. I'm looking forward to this weekend, as we'll be celebrating St. Patrick's Day with friends. Just need to find out a great place (or places) to go!

I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well. I have a slight cold. It's annoying, but I slept most of the day yesterday, so I am feeling a lot better. I really hope that you are able to get some rest and that you feel better soon. I will be thinking of you and sending get well vibes your way!!!



I hope that you have a great time on St. Patrick's Day with your DH!!!

I hope it is just allergies and nothing else too nasty so it doesnt get in the way of your St Paddys day plans this weekend.

I get the feeling hopeless about ttc naturally whilst waiting for MA, hopefully the time will fly by

Congrats on the weight loss. Have you heard anything about your surgery?

Hope you have a good St Paddy's day. If you're looking for a place to go - we're having a big party

Thanks Katie! If I was in Canada, I would definitely come to your party!

I called RE again today and received a call back stating that the MA who does all the scheduling is still out. Apparently, she has been sick since Thursday. My chart is on her desk, so she'll call when she returns. Ughh, it's not her fault that she's sick, but couldn't someone else schedule the surgery!

There should be someone else in the office that can schedule your surgery for you. Can you call and talk to someone else in the office?

I agree with Caitlin. They should have someone else in the office who can schedule the surgery. I hope that you are able to get it scheduled soon.

I already asked the RN, nope, Siri does all the scheduling. I've met Siri and I like her, but she needs to get back to work!

She's too busy looking up things for people on their iPhones!

I hope you hear back from her soon and that you feel better, too!

I know, right!

CD 18

So I may have ovulated late yesterday or this morning. I'm not temping this cycle, so I'm relying just on CM and CP. Last night my CP was high and my CM was EW, but my cervix wasn't open and my EWCM wasn't that great. Today my CM is creamy/sticky and my CP is medium/low, so one of two things. I ovulated late yesterday or today or my body is tricking me and I will ovulate days from now. Sadly, my body has done that before. Yesterday and the day before I was horny, had lots of energy and didn't want to eat--all signs that I'm about to O. Today, I'm tired, sluggish and hungry--all signs that I already O'd. Of course, my allergies could still be bothering me or I could just be tired. Who knows. Looks like I may have to go back to temping next cycle.

Work has been keeping me busy, so I've been focusing on that. Today feels like the only day this week where I am not drowning.

I'm looking forward to St. Paddy's Day. We will be going to a Pub with friends Sunday morning after we have some kegs and eggs! I already bought a St. Paddy's day shirt, it's hello kitty. And I plan to buy green stick on mustaches if I can find them. I'm going to make everybody wear one!

Thanks Reba!

So, false alarm. Later today, my CP was medium/high and I had watery CM. So no O yet. I'll keep BDing and hopefully I'll O soon.

Just had to get this out.....

when am I going to stop being so angry and sad about not being able to conceive. I know that others have tried for longer and it hasn't been two years; but I've tried all the procedures, they can't figure out why we can't conceive and I'm 33. I just want to have one child, that is it, just one baby......that's all that I want!

Thanks for letting me vent........

You are entitled to your feelings, no matter how long you have been TTC. It's hard to wait for something, or in this case, someone that you want so much.

Vent it out! Waiting sucks. And you aren't being unreasonable.
