I'm stalking you for updates although I think I remember you saying you probably wouldn't test this morning.

Nothing good to update, I'm had some awful cramping whilst out doing an inspection today and ran to the bathroom a couple of times to find nothing. However I got home to find spotting and having more cramps. pretty sure AF is here

Yeah she showed in all her glory, right on time. Was pretty heavy this month for me so perhaps something somewhere happened but I dunno.


Anyway moving on...

CD5, Cycle #23 ttc#1

Thats right, we're back ttc. I'll be starting back with the temping tomorrow (if I remember) so here goes to loosing out on sleep. Hopefully itll not be for too much longer as I'll get my BFP

I have DF back on the pycnogenol (?sp), he's been taking it again for 2 weeks now and we bought another bottle this weekend. Hopefully thats giving his swimmers an extra boost. We'll both be cutting out / down on the alcohol too.

Here's my plan:
CD1- O
- Prenatal
- EPO
- Preseed with BDing
- Vit D

Post O - AF / BFP
- Prenatal
- Vit D

Oh I also have some RRL capsules but I need to double check when I need to be taking them. We'll also be using preseed as soon as my fertile CM shows up. I have plenty of stocks ready to go!

I feel like i'm forgetting somethign else...maybe itll come to me later tonight.

We have 11 days till our appt at the fertility clinic on the 10th May. I am so fricking excited, I cant wait to get on with our first IUI. I am maybe 0.5lbs off where I need to be for the appt so feeling good about that, hopefully loose a few more lbs before the appt just for good measure.

Wedding update:
We finally received the sample for our invite. 2 weeks later than we had originally been told and thats still almost 2 months since we first gave them a deposit for the sample! Oh and also, we only got a sample of the day-time invite, not one of the evening-guest invite which is different. frustrating! As much as I love the invite itself, the people are not in my good books and I dont trust them. So after talking it over with DF we're likely going to get different invites. I have found a couple online today that i've ordered samples for so we'll see whether we like them when they arrive. I'm hoping to have all the invites ready to go out early June so we need to get a decision made asap!

Oh and also, I managed to organise a date with all of my bridesmaids to get together to try on all the dresses to see how they look and decide on a style for the dress to be worn. Oh and to talk other things like hair, shoes, accessories etc etc. Monday 6th May, a week tomorrow, I cant wait!

For RRL, there was disagreement about whether or not to take it all through your cycle or just pre-O. I have a friend who took it all through her cycle and got PG after using it for three (after failing to conceive the year previously), so when I took it, I took it over my whole cycle.

Good luck! Looks like we have basically the same plan this cycle! I'm on EPO & Vit D.

I was just trying to catch up on everyone's journals, you have had quite a journey, I must say!!

Good to hear you are actively TTC again! Sending many positive thoughts your way for both a BFP and an amazing wedding in the near future!

Wow Jen! You have had quite the journey. I'm really rooting that you get your BFP soon... And I want to thank your for the in depth info about your doctors appointment and how they treated you. I'm hopefully going to figure out a way to write up some of my own medical stuff that's happened, and seeing you do so in such detail,has been helpful.

I hope you did write a letter about the nurse and I'm sorry they treated you like that! Congrats at being back to TTC! ((Hugs))
