Woww, you ladies are so active here!! It's good to see that you are enjoying this format, too!
I try to keep up with all of you and I am reading along, just can't get enough time to post in detail to everyone.
@NorthStar - hey, cycle buddy! I see we have very similar charts. How did the rest of the pills go? Did the joint pain go away now? Approximately when do you O after the last pill? Are you doing OPKs?
@AlaskanWife - I am sorry for the strange spotting and even stranger temps for you. It looks like another anov cycle until now Are you going to call and try to induce AF with progesterone soon? Re: our last cycle trying, I mostly feel tired. I just feel tired to plan, to try, to test, to hope and suffer all hormonal changes every cycle for nothing. So I may be relieved that some of these will be lifted off my shoulder, as honestly, I do not have any hope any cycle that it can happen at all. Sorry for being a downer, I can't even complain compared to your cycles... The visit of your sister sounds so much fun! I am glad it gave you some good time and lifetime memories!
@Marie - we are also very close in our cycle! Are you done with all of the appointments? Did you get some answers or set up a plan? I also never met any GP or OB who was also respecting any alternative treatment, and that is a shame. Woww, 4-6 months is a long time! Glad you planned ahead, but I truly hope you will not make it that far as the Clomid will do the trick! Looks like O is coming for you with those EW days! Fingers crossed for you!!
@RomaTomato - our next IVF will only be in July, but it is not booked yet, we have to go in for a consultation in May to discuss if we have any other tests to be done before that. I have not tried acupuncture for infertility yet, only for other medical issues (backache and my enlarged liver) and they worked wonders! So I was very much waiting to start, as I have also read great success stories with acu. Your spotting sounds also very strange. Did you take any meds for your sickness that could have caused something? I hope it is gone though and that you are feeling better now!
@MrsD - yayy for the wedding to be here! I hope you will have a great time and Lupron will not cause any major s/e!!
@JustTrying - I am sorry for your anov cycles, that is truly disheartening! I hope your RE can find some possible cause and can treat it easily. I only bring DH to the first appointments, and after that if he is not needed, I just go alone.
@Mel - after the IVF, acu and needles are no big deal for me I think I take pain very well, as I consider it as an 'important information', and I know that it will always go away. I am so rooting for you!! But please don't be discouraged if it does not happen first cycle after the lap! It takes so many things to line up! Please keep us updated on the test results! It would be nice to start a 'Squinters' thread with yours!
AFM - after AF has gone, I went to check on the cyst to my OB. Luckily it is gone, and he saw follies growing on both sides, but my lining is disappointingly thin. But the good news is, that it is CD10 and (unless I missed the surge already) I got a snow-white OPK today! Which sounds awesome for me, as it means no early O for this cycle!!! So my lining still has some more time to build up. My OB suggested us not to have sex every day leading up to O if DH has lower count, so we will only BD once I get the + on the OPK. I soo hope that the acupuncture is already working!!
