Hi ladies, sorry I have been MIA for a while, except in the squinter thread More on that below. I'll try to catch up...
@Amariel Amariel: I got a cup a couple years ago (Eva Cup) and love it! I don't think I will ever go back to pads / tampons. I did purchase a set of 3 cloth pantiliners but I had trouble with them giving me a yeast infection. Happened twice. I think it's because they stay wet (rather than "soaking in" like a normal pad, if that makes sense). Anyway, maybe I'll try a different brand one of these days.
Your temps have been quite confusing, it sounds like! Any answers yet?
@RomaTomato : Hope you're doing well.
@Marie: Google just sucks you in, doesn't it? I feel ya! I can get stuck in Googling my issues, symptoms, and potential issues for hours! I'm sorry you got a BFN But such a sweet little story about your DH fixing it for you! Love that. Are you going to test again?
@MrsD : Yay for a great lining!! Good news that everything is looking perfectly on track. You're getting so close. I love your story about how you decided to transfer 2. Sounds like you were speaking from your gut / heart rather than logical brain - and that's gotta be the right answer
@Mel : Glad to hear your hubby enjoyed the support meeting. That must be so wonderful to have him right there with you. My DH is as supportive as he knows how to be but I can't picture him ever going to a support group meeting with me!
@NorthStar : Congratulations again!! I'm so thrilled for you
@Peony : Looks like no AF for you yet? Are you going to test again or do you feel like it is coming?
@JustTrying : Hoping you O'd and it's not another anov cycle! I can't believe that giraffe just now gave birth. I was watching the live feed like a month ago!
AFM: So, I got a squinter on Wednesday, when I took a test before quitting progesterone. I didn't think I'd even ovulated, so it was a shocker. Multiple people on here and other forums said they saw it too, so it wasn't just my eyes! But the next day was definitely BFN. Today was when I should have gotten AF (3 days after stopping progesterone) but she didn't come today. I felt pretty awful too, headache, nausea.... so I held for almost 4 hours and tested again... still BFN I've actually been okay with the whole thing until today. I think the nausea had my hopes up, so today I was pretty bummed. I follow "Moms in the Making" on Facebook - it's an online, christian-based infertility support group. The other day the lady who runs it was talking about how some days, the only prayer you are able to pray is "God, I want a baby." That's kinda how I felt all day today.
Interestingly enough, at supper, my DH told me that he'd had a conversation today with his coworker, whose wife also has PCOS and infertility. The two guys had ended up talking about infertility and adoption. Background: my DH has pretty flat out told me he's not interested in adopting anytime soon or maybe ever, which is hard for me, because I've always wanted to adopt. Anyway, I guess the two of them talked about their concerns and views on it, and DH relayed the conversation to me and went on to talk some more about his concerns and thoughts about adoption. I didn't say much and just let him talk, because I could tell he was just verbally working through his thoughts. But he landed on asking me, "If we adopted, where would you want to adopt from?" and "How much does it cost?" Wow. That was unexpected!! I'm excited and grateful that he's actually thinking about this. I don't expect it to happen in the very near future, but the fact that it's even on the table is encouraging.
