Re: August 2013 Board
Hello ladies!

I have been trying to keep up, but my computer is in the "shop" and so I am having to use DH's heavy computer that is missing the "a" button (it just has the rubber knub thingy...Ugh!). So typing is annoying at best!

Tara: Oh I hope that this is your month, and if it isn't I am excited that things are moving forward with the IVF cycle!

Brie: How relieving to have a diagnosis and plan! I hope that things start feeling better! I am also on the fence about taking BCP--my OB gave me a prescription for the mini-pill, but I am just not sure. Plus, its 25.00 a MONTH! And--ya....

Amy: How exciting about Nathan's photobook! I love them! :smileyhappy: I want to attempt to make them for the kiddo's--with every free offer I get order another one! However, I have to wait awhile longer!

Vicki: Congratulations!! I just had baby #3 in July! :smileyhappy:

Nicole: You around?! How are you doing? How is baby Lucas doing?

Isra: How are you doing? I hope things are going well! How is this cycle going?

Simone: Wow, what a crazy adventure with Ty :smileysad: I hope things get straightened out soon!

I apologize if I missed anyone!

AFM: Jordyn is already a month old!! 5 weeks actually! I go back to work on Monday :smileysad: Not really looking forward to it--but it is what it is, and I will have my personal day and sick days to use this year. So that is a good thing--that way if/when I need to be home I can be-AND I can take my personal days for no-good reason! LOL! Jordyn is such a great baby and the boys absolutely love her! Things are going well all around! :smileyhappy:

Re: August 2013 Board

Simone- Yep, it's a non clomid month. First in a long long time.

 

Amy- It's near Mt. Baker,,,,Church mountain hike, It's about 10 miles and 3700ft climb. It was a lot of fun, but definately grueling. 

 

Alix- YAY!!! Congrats! It's about time! Wonderful news!

 

Christine- I glad you are doing so well! Can hardly believe Jordyn is that old already, wow!

Alix: Congrats!!! I added your BFP to  the board, and a EDD of 4/2014.. If that changes, let me know :smileyhappy: I'll change it! Congrats again!

 

Tara: now its your turn for a miracle baby :smileyhappy: FX'd for you!  Is your DH excited about the consult? is he going to do it with you?

 

Christine: Well, I'd stick to charting if you are on the fence, but the same ingredient on the mini pill is whats in mirena.. so, It wouldnt have worked for me either. I bled for 8 months, I need a break LOL. But since you did good on mirena, it may be fine for you. If you are on the fence, i wouldnt do it. I know several people who have used it, autumn included..and they say its great. Im too forgetful for it to be sucessful.

 

afm- after temp stayed the same (pretty much) for 3 days, it went up this morning, I checked it like 3 times to make sure.. lol. So not sure what to expect. Kinda early for O.. if i even will. But then again, BF'ing could have my body all confused still

DH did pick up the estrace, no directions from dr m. so i used 1/4 of an applicator and see how that goes.

Usually its a twice a week thing, so hopefully it helps.

Re: August 2013 Board

Brie- I think DH is going to come home for the phone consult. I figured I would probably put it on speaker phone. I think he is glad to be moving forward. 

 

AFM- Had a dream I had a baby girl last night was BFing....I think these dreams start happening when I get close to O, so I'm hoping that I O on my own. Better yet that dream would come true.

Re: August 2013 Board
Thanks ladies!! I am soooooo excited if I wasn't so tired I would be jumping up and down. I'm confused on how far along I am though. My dr called and said my count was in the 300's for the positive blood work and that I was 1-2 weeks pregnant. I thought you couldn't tell that soon?

I will be on again soon. I'm gunna take a nap I just got home from work and I was there since 3am.

Re: August 2013 Board

Tara: Maybe you already O'd and caught that eggie, and those are those de ja vu dreams :smileywink: I hope you did O on your own, that'd be great! Maybe with so many clomid cycles, your body has figured out what to do now. Wouldnt that be great?  I am excited for you either way, for the IVF consult..and the possibility that you wont even need to persue it further. This is the free consult right?

 

Alix: Hmm.. did they set you up for an ultrasound yet? you will get a EDD at that point and they will be able to tell you how far along you are at that point. I know my OB GYN wouldnt even do an orientation (and a pregnancy test as well) until you were at least six weeks and no ultrasound until they thought you were past 8 weeks, unless you were having issues, like bleeding. Happy and healthy 9 months to you!!

 

afm- JD leaves tomorrow. I'll be glad for some peace and quiet.. i swear the two of them together is a constant wrestle fest! I can go into a different room, close the door, and in a minute they are right in there following me, wrestling beside me. It drives me bonkers!  I dont care if they wrestle, but geez NOT on top of me, please!

DH is looking forward to BDing, but now that hes made me wait all this time, Im not even really excited. The last time hurt pretty bad, so it wasnt even enjoyable. Im just used to the "no not today, hes in the next room" routine that Im beyond wanting it. Plus, I really think I O'd already so the drive is decreasing anyway. Oh well, his loss. I have to go clean since we are expecting his ex in laws to be here sometime this evening. They wanted to see me and Layla. lol Weird much? Just a lil but i guess its better than ex in law drama.

Re: August 2013 Board

Alix- Sounds like you found out on the early side. You are probably 4 weeks ish since technically you start counting from AF. Having an early US will help give you the best dates if your LMP was unreliable. 

 

Brie- That is so frustrating that you aren't in the mood anymore from having to wait it out for so long. Hope dh can do something romantic. That's kinda funny that his ex in-laws want to see you and Layla. You'd think his ex wouldn't like that unless it's a scouting mission. But, hey if you all get along then that's even better. I sure pray my dream comes true and would save us a lot of money, too. It felt so real although it's something I've been thinking a lot about lately, too. Yeah the consult is free for the phone one. Not sure what the next step will be once we talk to her on the phone. Looking forward to Monday afternoon.

Christine: Congrats!! I know I'm late with that but last month was so crazy I couldn't even think straight. I was on 12 hour shifts all month and it was our one year anniversary.

Brie: I'm sorry your dh is making you wait. When mine does that I just start picking on him then when he gets annoyed I just kiss him and sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Right now he won't touch me just hold me. I think he's scared and still in shock that were pregnant haha. I hope your dh realizes making you wait isn't a good thing.

Tara: Those dreams sound very promising. I really hope you get your BFP!! I can't get an ultrasound yet. I don't have a dr and they won't see me on base for the pregnancy. Only if its an issue like my migraines. I still have to see my normal dr for that. I think I am more than two weeks though. My last LMP was July 12 and I O'd on the 25th and I was supposed to start yesterday and the home test came back positive.

Afm: I'm eating breakfast which is new for me. I usually eat when I get home from work but the little peanut doesn't like that and makes me hungry as soon as my eyes open in the morning. I'm waiting for an off base OBGYN since the base hospital is now only a clinic so they dont see pregnant women on base anymore. Once you find out you have to go to all three floors have a paper signed by all the spots that are there family advocacy the wellness center public health and pediatrics. I was there for two hours yesterday. And they made me pick a dr on the spot. I don't know any OB drs and yet I had to pick one. It's not right. Well I have to leave for work in a few minutes I will be back later today.
