Topic: FedEx Delivery

Apparently NW has switched from UPS to FedEx.  With UPS, I could sign in advance on the app.  So far, with the FedEx app, it is not allowing me to do so.  I'm hoping that will change by Monday afternoon/Tuesday morning as the delivery is scheduled for Tuesday.  We didn't know about the change or I would've had the tank delivered to my work address. 

Has anyone been able to sign in advance for the FedEx delivery yet?

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies Hey there. I noticed it's FedEx now also. I don't know anything about the signature on the app though. I'm crossing my fingers this cycle takes for you guys. I had Donor #8843 shipped to my doctor's office they recieved it Friday. I get my medicated IUI in July. The other times were unmedicated seeing as though I don't have any fertility issues. But I chose to do medicated since I'm tired of trying. Me and my Wife just want our healthy baby already. Here's to praying this is it for both of us. ☺

Re: FedEx Delivery

@reednakita Thank you and best of luck to you! When are you expecting to insem in July? Can't wait to see how it turns out for you!! Think positive!

Also, I'm hoping the radio silence from myoung96 and heyjudemommy is a good sign.. You haven't heard from either of them have you?

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies thank you. I will ovulate sometime the week of July 20. I'm doing Femara cycle days 3-7 then trigger after my doctor does my scan and let's me know when to do the trigger shot. I haven't seen anything from them two @myoung96 @heyjudemommy. I was thinking the same maybe they're pregnant hopefully ☺ positive thoughts

Re: FedEx Delivery

So I've done some research, and Signature Release is not offered by FedEx.  So I requested to work from home tomorrow for the scheduled delivery date.  I just got a notification from the FedEx app that the package is out for delivery - today.  If we could sign in advance, this wouldn't be an issue.  Or if we had known and had it delivered to my work address, again it wouldn't be an issue.  But we are both at work, so I guess it will be reattempted tomorrow. 
We are emailing Dani @ NW because this brings up a question for future months. 

If the scheduled delivery date was 5/22 and FedEx decided to deliver 5/21 - when does our 7 days start? Also, 7 days from 5/21 is a holiday, so we intentionally did not choose that delivery date since nothing will be running on 5/28.

Would NW count the 21st as the start of the 7 day rental? I can see issues arising from this if you had planned to have it a few days early, as they recommend, but you don't need to use it until what would be your 6th day (evening) or 7th day (morning) but they delivered it early so now it's technically the 7th day (evening) or 8th day (morning)...

Re: FedEx Delivery

Response from NW:
To answer your question you have 7 days from when you pick up/sign for the package to get returned. I did look into your tracking and I do find it odd that you will be getting it today instead of tomorrow like requested. I am very sorry for this and I will make sure you will not be charged a late Dewar fee. Please let me know if you have any more questions or concerns.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies I'm so glad you got that figured out! Now if you would have wanted it a day early that wouldn't have happened lol. It's always 7 days from the day you actually get it. Actually when we tried it at home I didn't ovulate when I thought I would so I had the dewar for 10 days. And I was waiting for them to charge me the 20 bucks a day for the 3 days over and they never did. FedEx said my dewar this past Friday for my clinic would arrive by 4:30 Friday. I was terrified because they close at 4 on Fridays 5 Mon-Fri. But they ended up changing it to 11:50 -2:50. It got there at 1. I was so relieved Haha!

Re: FedEx Delivery

@reednakita That's nice that you didn't get charged extra!  And I'm glad your dewar made it in time!  Is storage cheaper at the clinic than NW?

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies my clinic doesn't charge as long as you're not trying to store for like a year. So it will be there for 2 months when we try. It's 45 bucks a month for NW to hold it. It's free for 30 days with NW then 45 a month after that. So it would have been a month on the 20th of this month that I had it with NW so I had it shipped out on the 15th. So it all worked out. Praying this is it for us because I won't be able to try again until next year. And after this donor 8843 won't be donating anymore. So we will have to pick another donor.

Re: FedEx Delivery

Fingers and toes crossed!

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies yes!! Did everything go good with you ladies receiving your package? When will you be inseminating?

Re: FedEx Delivery

Yes, thank you.  She just tested High this morning, Peak should be hopefully Thursday or Friday.  We want to do Saturday morning/Saturday night ideally since we are trying to get it timed right to do the IUI with the midwife.  But I'll definitely let you know.

Before your comment earlier, I didn't realize 8843 had less than 12 remaining.. We just got a few more just in case.  Figure we wouldn't have a hard time selling them if we didn't need them and we'd rather have them than not.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@ 2hopefulmommies

Fingers crossed that you don’t need them and this cycle works! What timing are you going for this time?

TTC #1: August 2017 - ICI BFP- miscarried @7weeks
TTC#2:  December 2017- ICI, IUI- BFP! - Will induce @ 37 weeks 4 days (9/7/18 ) Can't wait to meet my sweet baby boy! Baby here 9/8/18! 7lbs1oz and 20.5 inches long.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies yes he's running out and not donating anymore after that. Hoping this is it for both of us. Yayy good luck looking forward to your Wife's BFP ☺

Re: FedEx Delivery

Just hit peak this morning.  IUI scheduled for this evening with the midwife.  We will do the Stork tomorrow morning.  I'm feeling really positive this morning.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies yayy I hope this is it fingers crossed.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies hey how is your Wife feeling? When will you guys be testing? Fingers crossed!

Re: FedEx Delivery

@reednakita Hi!! She is feeling fine. We just got back from vacation and although it was a little early did a test this morning. Negative, of course. But AF isn’t due until the 7th so there’s still time!

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies hey there! It's so tempting to test early lil. That was the perfect time to take a vacation too. Okay can't wait until you guys get your positive!

Re: FedEx Delivery

Omg I'm on pin and needles for you guys ???????? lol. I'm losing it Haha @2HopefulMommies

Re: FedEx Delivery

All signs of AF have arrived as of yesterday along with a drop in temp today. hmm  Onto Cycle 6 I believe.

Still nothing from heyjude or myoung, huh?... I'm REALLY hoping they got good news and are just playing it safe and waiting to say anything.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies aww damn! You're still not out though unless AF shows her ugly face. No I have been looking up their names and even @ them but no response. Hopefully they say something.

Re: FedEx Delivery

This is true.  I do expect it to come on time (tomorrow) with all of her signs/symptoms but you never know.  I would just be concerned about such a late implantation if that's what's going on with the huge drop. I'll let you know tomorrow though!

Re: FedEx Delivery

I’m sorry @2Hopefulmommies maybe there will be a surprise though.
If not have you all considered moving on with some assistance from clomid? I’m really pulling for you two.

TTC #1: August 2017 - ICI BFP- miscarried @7weeks

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies okay please let me know. You know know what's going to happen. You guys still have a chance ☺

Re: FedEx Delivery

Well, she started yesterday. 

We are planning to do 2 IUIs with the midwife this next cycle. 

@yogibaby We haven't talked about Clomid yet.  Is that something we would need to go to an actual doctor for?

Re: FedEx Delivery

That AF. Sorry hun.

ordinarily yes....in the if sense of if you need things completely by the book...
I might know someone wanting to unload theirs. She had been trying for three years and clomid made the difference for her. She is about 16 weeks now.

PM me on FB, or I can email you-if that works better (if you and your wife are interested).

Clomid made the difference for me too it helps select for the best egg and in a way protects you from miscarriage by boosting your progesterone levels during the TWW. The only side effects I had were being witch and feeling ovulation stronger.  Anyway, some doctors will prescribe a few months of it  and then move on to trouble shooting more stuff.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@yogibaby PM sent.  Thanks!

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies sorry to hear that! Next month will be cycle 4 of trying for me. I got pregnant the first IUI ended in a chemical pregnancy. I don't have fertility issues it's all about timing plus I have 7 kids. So this time I will be using Femara. It's like clomid it helps with a stronger ovulation for women who ovulate on their own like me and your Wife. And helps women who dont ovulate at all to ovulate. So it boosts our chances. I'm doing the trigger shot also which makes you ovulate between 24 to 36 hours. When will you guys be trying again?

Re: FedEx Delivery

I just emailed our midwife to see if she's comfortable with it for this cycle. Hopefully she will be good with it and write the prescription.  Today is CD2, so she would need to start taking it tomorrow. 

Due to ovulate around the 21st, so around that date.

7 kids? That's impressive!! Hopefully this 4th cycle for you will be the one!

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies that would be amazing us pregnant at the same time and due a month apart. Some people do says 3-7 and some do days 5-9. My doctor has me doing days 3/7. Hopefully your Midwife is down for the cause lol. Yes 6 girls and 1 boy. Funny thing is I want another girl Haha ☺

Re: FedEx Delivery

@reednakita Omg no way! My fingers and toes and my hair is all crossed for a boy lol.  But either will work.  First, we need to get pregnant lol.

I guess it sounds like she would do 3-7 as well based on a 27-28 day cycle.  Still no word from the midwife. hmm

Re: FedEx Delivery

@reednakita She's ordering the Clomid for us now.  No trigger shot though.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies yayy! Glad you guys got it! And my cycle is 27/28 days also. And right me and my Wife really don't care as long as the baby is healthy. I will check in to see how your Wife is feeling on the Clomid. Femara has way less side affects that's why I chose that one. I'm ecstatic for you guys

Re: FedEx Delivery

So Colleen determined that CD1 wasn't a strong enough CD1- so we are counting yesterday as CD1 - she will start Clomid on Saturday night.  I'm stoked to get to try something new... It's almost brought back all of the excitement from our first try again.  It's so easy to get discouraged.  We didn't change up our plan too much for the first 3 attempts.  Then we switched donors for #4.  Went to the Midwife for #5.  And now the Clomid along with 2 IUIs with the midwife.  Really hoping this does it!

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies that's understandable. My doctor told me don't count the day of spotting as day 1. The day of full flow is day 1. All these years I counted the day of spotting lil. TTC this way has taught me ALOT. I cant wait for the good news this time. I feel you next month will be the first time we did medicated so it is new. I'm scared to do the trigger shot at home though. I hear it's not bad though. Hopefully the timing is to where my doctor can give me the shot that will make me feel better lol.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies hello there. How has your Wife been on the clomid?

Re: FedEx Delivery

She’s been fine! I’m pretty sure the night sweats she was having weren’t even related. She had a sinus infection and they seemed to have stopped shortly after she started feeling better.

She has been testing low on the CB OPK but went straight to peak this morning so we are scheduled for the IUI tonight and tomorrow morning. The earlier surge has to be due to the Clomid. She’s 2 days early.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies I was just about to say wow that's early. Yes I've heard of it making the surge earlier or later than usual. This will be you guys time! Everything sounds so good. Glad she's feeling better.

Re: FedEx Delivery

Thanks! I’m excited that the Clomid has had some effect on her. Makes me think it might work. I’m sure that sounds silly, but if she had no side effects I wondered if it was working. But the earlier surge makes me feel better.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies she's lucky to not have side affects I heard they are horrible lol. So that's good!

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2Hopefulmommies

I surged 2 days earlier with clomid too! Fingers crossed for you two!

TTC #1: August 2017 - ICI BFP- miscarried @7weeks
TTC#2:  December 2017- ICI, IUI- BFP! - Will induce @ 37 weeks 4 days (9/7/18 ) Can't wait to meet my sweet baby boy! Baby here 9/8/18! 7lbs1oz and 20.5 inches long.

Re: FedEx Delivery

IUIs are done. Now we wait.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies yayy! The final countdown

Re: FedEx Delivery

I hope so!!!

Re: FedEx Delivery

I’m struggling with this TWW. It’s been 7 days since the first IUI and I’m dying for her to test already. Obviously we are still waiting since testing now would be pointless. Hopefully another 3 days and then we can start.

Re: FedEx Delivery

So much for waiting. I mentioned it tonight so she took one. Obviously negative.

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies I was just coming on here to say almost time to test in a couple of days you beat me to it lol! I sure hope this is it and a baby will be on the way. I start testing around day 10 and continue until I get a positive. When will you guys test again?

Re: FedEx Delivery

In my head, I wanted to wait until tomorrow which would be day 9.  But I'm thinking maybe Friday or Saturday.  Who knows.. lol. I get too excited.

Are you getting excited for your upcoming cycle?

Re: FedEx Delivery

@2HopefulMommies lol! Oh I understand the excitement trust me. Yes I'm so ready girl. My cycle was almost 2 weeks late this month! Which never happens. It's funny because I prayed and asked God to make sure the timing lines up perfectly so I can get pregnant and have our healthy baby our next try. Then my period didn't come lol. So I said hmm this will all work in my favor. So now this moves my cycle to the end of July instead of beginning and IUI probably like the 1st or 2nd of August. I'm doing medicated for the 1st time.
