Well - Girls weekend snowboarding trip is just a few days away. The big house we rented for the weekend has a hot tub.

My RE said no restrictions. I didn't ask him about the hot tub though... What do you guys think?

If by the Grace of God I am pregnant I would be 10DPO. I wasn't planning on using the hot tub, just in case. Now I am thinking maybe I should do the dreaded POAS to be safe. I go back to RE on Wed for blood test. I'd prefer to wait till then to find out if this medicated iui cycle worked.

I think I will call the office to be safe and ask about the hot tub. Here is how it goes...if I drink all weekend and snowboard yard and grind some rails and hang out in the hot tub I will be pregnant. If I don't drink, barley snowboard and don't do the hot tub I won't be pregnant.

I'd do the hot tub, but be wise about it. Don't stay in for too long, push water into your system so you don't dehydrate/overheat, etc.

As long as you are careful about it, I think you'll be fine. Your trip sounds like SOOOOOO much fun!

Well just so you know I just got of the phone with the Dr. I can go in the hot tub. However I can't snowboard? WHAT? He said no restictions before. Then he said he didn't realize I'd be snowboarding at age 41. (he always jokes with me about my age)

He said my ovaries are still swollen and I am still bloated and I my overies could twist. Then I'd ruin what little chance I have of even conceiving at all as it is. UGH! Well heck, I am glad I called.

He said he would like for me to come in Friday morning and they would look at my ovaries and he would tell me for sure, but he doubts he will approve me snowboarding. Well heck, now what...I can't shop either cause I am broke from these treatments! lol
It's all good - I am glad I called. I can however, be in the hot tub! Woo hoo!

Do they have a tubing/sledding hill at the place you are going? Maybe that could be an option since snowboarding is out.

Better safe than sorry, I guess?! I'm bummed for you, but hoping that the end result is completely worth it.

Drinking hot chocolate is DEFINITELY allowed, though...somehow on a snowy mountain it is even more delicious

Well I will go in tomorrow am or Friday am and they can do an U/S on me to see if my girls are swollen. I think if they tell me no snowboarding I will ask about tubing.

I am almost considering not even going now. But I hate for the TTCMA to control all of my life, including my finances and now my Girl fun too!

Dr. office called me today to tell me not to forget to come in tomorrow am if I still planned on going snowboarding. Also said she talked to the DR and he said hot tub was out too. UGH!

So I'll be going there first thing in the am and then leaving for NY for some girls weekend fun. I wont be able to update you guys on what happened unless I get bored and use my phone to log on and send an update. I am guess I wont be able to board though. I am still bloated and my left ovary is still twingy and a little hurty. I will be 8dpo tomorrow. I wonder if he will just take a blodo test or will it just be to early?

Have a good weekend ladies!

Soooo basically you're down to hot chocolate. I HATE how this takes over our lives. One day it will all be worth it, but in the moment it's SO UNFAIR.

I'm sorry that you are forbidden from doing so many things on your trip, Gretchen. Here's hoping that the next time you get together with these girls it is for your baby shower

I hope the company and the cocoa is great. And that before you know it, you'll be taking a little one on his/her first snowboarding trip.

Trip was fun. It was good being with my girl friends. Although I couldn't snowboard, drink or hot tub I still had a good time. I relaxed and enjoyed the quite time while everyone else was snowbaordng. I was a little sad I wasn't in any of the pictures all geared up in the mountains but I am in the rest of them.

All weekend long the girls all talked like I would be pregnant so hopefully all the postitive reinforcement worked. I figure I would have been implanting this weekend IF we got lucky enough to have a fertilized eggy. I haven't had any cramping or implantation bleeding or anything though.

I am still having slight pains on and off in my ovaries and I am still bloated. My bb's where hurting all weekend again, but now today they aren't. UGH!

Blood test in two days!
