I have been so bad about keeping up with you ladies on here! I always forget that not all of you are on the FB group... This is mostly going to be an "AFM" until I get caught back up! I did get AF, and am on track for a November transfer! When I talked to the nurse she told me I was scheduled for the Monday before Thanksgiving, at which point I did the unthinkable for an IVFer -- I asked her if we could postpone for two days!! :) This way my transfer is now scheduled for 11/21, the day before Thanksgiving, and I will have five days to rest and recover. Unlike the last time when I had ZERO days off. We are very excited to get started again. Lupron starts in another 10 days, at least in the cold weather nobody has to look at my mauled legs...

Tawny -- Dogs are a lot more like kids than I thought they would be! Sometimes they are worse, since you don't have to go outside in the middle of the night in freezing weather so your baby can poop out a wad of illicitly consumed paper towels! We have three dogs right now, a beagle (10), hound/lab/pit (5), and a little pittie x (3) who is making weird little dog dream sounds at my feet right now. They are all at once a joy and a major frustration! We got the youngest last year through a rescue. It took a while to housebreak her, but once she got it she was great... Until right around my last cycle. One of our cats (you had to know with my screen name that I had like 4 cats, right?) used to pee over EVERYTHING (you can see why I love cats, right?) so we had to keep all our bedroom doors shut at all times. He passed away during my last cycle, so suddenly we could leave all the doors open for the first time in almost 13 years! Yay! Aaaaand then our pittie started peeing in the house. She's good again, but at the time... Oh. My. God. So the short version of that very, VERY long story is that I feel your pain on pee-related nervous breakdowns. Who of us HASN'T sat on the floor in a puddle of urine, cranked up on injectable hormones, clutching a bottle of cleaner and shaking a fistful of paper towels, and weeping copiously? (I mean, other than the intelligent people out there who spend their money on awesome things like luxury cars and mind-blowing exotic vacations rather than on some furry quadrupeds who would totally eat us if we dropped dead and nobody found our bodies until well after the kibble ran out...) :)

Sunshine – Thanks girl – after I posted here, I received a phone call from the nurse saying I should go for baseline today anyways. Right after that, I went to the bathroom and guess who showed up? AF herself. I was happy to see her this time LOL They didn’t put me on bcp.

Tawny – Hope you see AF soon, she arrived to me yesterday. Good luck in your upcoming cycle!

Kynlee – Thank you! AF is finally here! Yay!

Akdelp – Good luck in your FET cycle!

WeHaveHope – Thanks! AF is here now! I am more calm now. Pheewww

AFM – Ladies, all your AF dance worked, I got my period yesterday after I posted here! LOL Thanks ladies! I went for baseline today and everything is ok. I am waiting for the phone call to make sure everything is really ok with the blood work also, if so, I start stims this Saturday!

Can I get an AF dance over here????!!!! I'm trying to think of some remedy I can drink to make her get here faster lol I'm on day 30 of this cycle and don't want to push it any further that's just going to put my IVF of it's current estimated schedual wich I happen to like lol.

pocos and sunshine- I'm glad yall have started hopefully I'm not too far behind ya.

Woundercat- I am ROFL over your comments. It sooo hit home and I only have the 2 dog's. We have had Jack since 07 when we lived in Tucson AZ and I had a doggie door so he was easy to potty train. We swore we would only have Jack then we bought a home in June and as we were moving in the neighbor came out to meet us and their daughter was carrying an 8 day old black and tan doxin my hubby just melted. So needless to say we got a puppy just as I started injections. He was pottying everywhere and was on my last nerves and he would screem bloody murder if he's alone so he had to sleep in the bed with me meaning change of sheets every morning. He's not pottying so offten now but he will only ask to go out in the middle of the night when he wines for me to get up other wise I can tell when he takes off to his "spot" durring the day and even still he like refuses to poop outside I can catch him in the house pooping take him outside to finish sit out there for 45 min and he will finish as soon as I give up and bring him back inside. Sooo frustrating. Doxins are so hard to potty train.

Leora- Thinking of you and David this morning. X

Tawny- Rest assured AF is on her way!

Adkelp- That's wonderful we will be one week apart in the 2ww! Be thankful you aren't dealing with the injections, maybe I'm out of the loop with Lupron but it's kicking my butt! I was reading last night and found out Lupron lowers the estrogen level hence why we become so hormonal, dh watch out!

AFM: Anyway I lay awake at night overthinking stuff like this stupid baby shower I'm more stressed about that then anything right now. I wish they had not postponed it another week so more people could attend, I want the sign in the breakroom down and this all over and done with, enough is enough!! My coworker told me yesterday she bought sheets to be from me, I owe her $20 for the gift I told her I think I still had a roll of paper under my guest bed from 3 yrs ago, and when I took it out from under the bed last night I thought no this isn't appropriate, the paper was printed in "a baby is heaven's gift" from Hallmark. ugh how can it be a gift from heaven when her baby was a mistake in the first place? I makes me sad and disguisted but nobody there can see how I'm having a hard time with all this. Another girl handed me her registry to pass along to other coworkers on her way home yesterday but I wish we could of done with one big gift from everyone and the girls agreed with me it would be something she most likely would never get with little gifts. Oh well this girl with low estrogen needed a good rant and rage moment, somehow I will make an appearance and leave in the middle of dinner.

Hi ladies,

Pocos: glad .af came.

Cordelia: I laughed so much at your post about the dogs!!

Tawny: any sign?

Akdelp: hello again :)

Knylee : how are you doing?

Christy : your photos are lovely. I'm so sorry about this whole drama with your co-worker

Leora: I doubt you are checking the board and I've posted on face book. I'm devastated for you both. This is so cruel and so wrong. I'm so dreadfully sorry.


Afm sorry I've been mia, very busy and just before I heard leora's awful news I had a call from my client who has had 4 miscarriages in the last 16 months. When I saw her last week she was pregnant again, she asked for an urgent session and when she came she was so distressed. She has miscarriages again. I'm speechless for the pay of this journey and so terribly sad

Sunshine – I can imagine how stressed you are about this baby shower. I would be too. I wish you didn’t have to go, but sometimes we have to do our “social choirs " even if they will hurt us. I have been avoiding certain situations, I am avoiding staying online on facebook chat because I just dont want to hear more "I am pregnant" or "our friend is having a baby" "when are you having a baby?"... Also avoiding certain social things at my church like girls night out, couples dinners, etc. If I can avoid, I do so. I understand that in your case you kind of "have to go". Please stay strong girl, dont let it affect you. Soon you will be having your baby shower too :-)

Tawny – I am doing the AF dance for you!! Where is AF when we need her? Not fair!

Ninde – What happened to your client is so sad. This journey is really not easy. I was so happy for Leora, I can’t believe this happened to her again. I hope they can find out what is causing the miscarriages so she can try again soon and have better chances.

Pocos- Thank you I appreciate your post, with showers I prefer to keep everything quiet and not make a big deal. I live miles away from family so it should be relatively easy, and showers just stress me out...Seriously I would feel better knowing a little one was safely in my arms, that would be the best gift of all. I think somehow I would make everything else come together even if it's hand me down clothes passed down. I'm clueless on how expensive baby stuff is right now but I am a bargain hunter at heart.

No sign yet. But work has been stressful the last 2 days so that may have something to do with it. It has to be coming soon or something my emotions are all out of Wack. I told Dh today I think he is giving me my injections without me knowing it cause there are times I just want to break down and cry. He said to go take a prego test maybe we did it on our own last month but I HIGHLY doughy it. Oh well I'm on day 32 now just waiting so I can start my bcp.
