@AlaskanWife: I'm sorry for that BFN after you got your hopes up! I'm glad your DH is open to adoption! That much be such a relief for you! It is nice that he got to talk about someone else going through the same thing. I don't know if this is true for everyone, but among the family and friends that we see on a regular basis, when women get together they talk about absolutely nothing but their kids or pregnancy, and it can be isolating for me. (Some of them have suffered from infertility in the past, but I don't feel comfortable talking about TTC with people in real life yet.) When the men get together, they talk about sports or video games, so DH doesn't have to worry about feeling left out at all. In a lot of ways this is good, but on the other hand, he doesn't have anyone to talk about this with, whereas at least I have this online community! I know you have mentioned this before, but I forget--are you trying any new treatments or doing anything differently this cycle?
@Amariel: Thanks for sharing your washing routine. I should probably try one of those stain removers. I'm using an Oxyclean spray that doesn't seem to work well. I should also try scrubbing and soaking longer. I'm sorry you are having such a frustrating time with your clinic!
@MrsD: I do occasionally have moments that make me question wanting children, too! I think it's good to have realistic expectations. Haha! I'm glad you had a good Easter! I'm sorry you have to wait for your transfer.
@Peony: I'm sorry for your disappointing cycle. I hope the acupuncture makes a difference this cycle!
@RomaTomato: I don't see O on your chart yet, but I think it's a possibility! I'm not planning on inducing AF. Last cycle looked anovulatory but I still got AF naturally on CD40. Right now I'm on CD30. If I don't get AF by my RE appointment, which would be CD48, I will see what he says.
@NorthStar: I was getting confused about your posts about your O day on the other site. I forgot you were worried about twins! I hope it all works out for you!
@Mel: Yes, my RE appointment is in May. I could see CD9 or 11 being O, but it's probably good to assume CD11. That way you won't start testing too early!
@Marie: I agree, 2018 sounds like a fantastic year to have a baby! I'm glad you are feeling good about having all your appointments and tests lining up. Do you need to prevent/avoid before your HSG?
Sorry if I have missed anyone inadvertently!
AFM: Not much to report. I went back and disturbed the high temps on my Ovagraph chart so that it would remove O, since I think it's pretty clear that I didn't O. I'm on CD30. I think I have O'd as late as CD28 before, but I'm not holding my breath! I'm counting down the days to my RE appointment (18). I'm not too disappointed to be out of the running for a Christmas 2017 baby, because I think that would be tough for a kid. (Although I do know a few people with Christmas season birthdays, and none of them really seem to mind!) But a January or February birthday could be nice. There's not much else going on that time of year. We were aiming for a summer birthday originally, but at this point I think DH and I are both past caring too much about the timing!
