Jeib - whenever we tell someone about our troubles TTC -they always say "what about adopting?" -- I WISH! If we could adopt a healthy baby tomorrow - I WOULD! People really don't understand how much harder adopting is that fertility treatments. I wish adopting worked for us....
Carol - I'm so sorry things didn't work for you with the Clomid. That's so frustrating.... can you do just injectibles next time?
LYD - even on the Follistim, I didn't take such a high does (usually between 150-175iu -- lowered to 100 when I also took 1 Menopur). I don't know what my doctor really wanted to do by switching me -- I'm just annoyed now.
sunshine 12 - congrats on the ET! ftr - I would never cancel the cycle.... I"m just worried the doctors will decide to do that. Because we are completely covered by insurance, doing another cycle isn't a financial concern.... just time, patience and energy.... I'm really hoping we don't cancel - I'm just worrying about that now for the first time ever.
Lou - I feel that I *could* take care of a special needs/at risk child - the question is if that is the best thing to bring into our family right now (being so young and having no other kids). Adopting a child with special needs was actually the plan for the future - but more like 20 years from now, when our kids were grown. I know that these kids need homes, but I also need to make sure I'm doing what's best for us. We'll see... -- and 'nothing much to report' is GREAT for you, you pregnant lady you!
Kimber - DEFINITELY yes a new needle for injecting! and the 2ww sucks, sorry! When is your beta?
Tiger - your beta is tomorrow? Good luck.... - I just had a HSG and it was really easy. Maybe ask for one , just to reassure yourself.
Rio - thanks for the 'grow follies grow' blinkie - but I don't really understand why it has a picture of a pink elephant on it.... hmm....
Lauren - I understand - I always just start my BCP again and wait to see what's next. I'm so sorry things didn't work out.... where do you want me to move you on the list? (btw - on traffic - isn't driving INTO Boston not a big deal at 5pm - I would think everyone is trying to drive OUT of Boston) -----
Kynlee - I'm glad your Lupron is going well! Luckily February is the shortest month!
Margi- YAY! I'm so glad you got your Lupron! Hurray for starting!
Amanda 1979 - I'm sorry about your negative HPT. I've heard that the digital ones are sometimes less sensitive - so a BFP can take longer to show up. Good luck on your beta
Anton - thanks for reigniting my PMA - I was just really down when I got home from the clinic with less than ideal news - especially on top of our 'scary' adoption appt.... I am LOVING the free time! How did I ever get stuff done while I was working?
Samantha - for some reason, we get a bunch of Russian spam. Just ignore it --- unless you want to buy property in Crimea! Congrats on so many follies!
Sherry - yay! PUPO! when do you have your beta?
Carol - In some ways we are 'lucky' that we never had to do timed intercourse -- so unsexy! Maybe take a mini-break (stay in a hotel for a night or two -even if in your own town) just to light some fire!
AFM --- job interview today. Not really an intersteing job (customer service on the phone and live-chat) and not great pay (about $500 less per month than I was earning -- salaries here are talked about in 'months' not yearly).... but the hours are good and it's something to do (and some more money). I'm thinking about it, but not sure. They'd want me to start Feb 21... we'll see..
I'm so nervous about my SnS tomorrow -- I really hope those follies have grown really big! I'm starting to 'feel' them.... my abdomen is sensitive and if you push on it, it hurts. Hoping that's a good sign. I'll let y'all know as soon as I know more!
