Topic: Waiting at the station...

We have been resting at the station for a while... but I just placed an order for delivery so we are hopping back on the train for the fall- hopefully we won't be riding all fall!  Our plan is Sept, Oct, Nov and Dec... hopefully one of those months will be the right one.  I have been out of the loop for so long and I am so excited about all the babies!  Mel's triplets!  Zen is almost due- how exciting!  Its good to be back on the tracks- good luck to everyone and lots of sparkly, sticky baby dust!

Try#3 @ home BFP 10/07 Miscarriage at 10w 12/07

Cycle #1 2008

cd 1   8-30-08
cd 20 Smiley & Peak on CBFM
         inseminated once at about 15 hours past +
cd 26 Very tired but that could be due to kicking caffiene!


Not sure if we are trying again next month or not, not sure I can do this right now...

Re: Waiting at the station...

Holy Hannah- another year has passed by...  I, myself, not my husband, became completely negative about the entire baby making process and what not and as you can see took a year off!  But now with a new frame of mind and a new drive we are getting back into the process again! Yeah for us!  Our first attempt will be in september... clocking this month by... and hopefully we will get lucky!  Planning on doing several cycles (in order to not get our hopes up right away).  Wishing everyone lots of luck- lets make some babies!

Re: Waiting at the station...

We are going to be trying this month, now that the dreaded holidays (stress) is over!  October would be a good month to have a baby... the hubby's birthday and our wedding anniversary...  big_smile

Cycle 1 (2010)

cd 1  1/12/10
         Order is placed and to be delievered on the 25th... hoping for ovulation to be clearly   
         pinpointed this month, unlike in november, which through me for a loop...
cd 22 2/2/10
         well so much for that perfect ovulation...  cd 21 pretty close to + but no smiley, ewcm
         that day and then ovulation cramps that night.  cd 22 still no smiley but looked less +,
         used the instead cup with preseed and wore for about 3 1/2 hours cd 22 AM...  hoping
         for the best tongue

36 day cycle- longest ever!!  Not very impressed with my body at this moment.  Going to plan on taking 2 months off, starting Vitex to see if it will help with my luteal phase.  Cutting out caffeine, alcohol and trying for refined sugar too...  hopefully my body with be in a little better shape.  Planning on May cycle...  Been a long time coming, whats a few more months big_smile

Re: Waiting at the station...

Not sure what the above post is???  LOL

Anyways...  back in the ttc world once again.  I started taking vitex after the above 36 day cycle, for me it was not a good idea!  My following cycle was 66 days!  It was crazy and very unnerving when your in this world that require some regularity.  Decided to take some time off, relax and enjoy life, all of my cycles since then have been 32 days and I am feeling pretty good. 

cd 1  11/12/10
   swimmers to arrive 11/24/10
   expected ovulation 11/27-11/29  (cd 16-18)

cd 20  SMILEY!  A little later than expected but ended up with strep throat...
   iui at 10pm 13hr past +opk

12 dpo bfn

Re: Waiting at the station...

cycle day 1 12/15/10

ordered swimmers 12/22/10, scheduled to arrive 12/30/10
     2 iui vials

cd14     +opk, smiley, peak!   Called NW for overnight shipment, lots of ovulation twinges- both sides & abundant ewcm
             (smiley at 6:30am, 4pm, 10:30pm averaging the times and using 3pm for timing)

cd 15    swimmers arrived today!  Yeah!  Peak this morning, but no smiley
             hoping this wacko cycle will be THE CYCLE!         
             iui #1 3pm   (24 hr past)
             iui #2 10pm (31 hr past) wanted to wait til 36 but was nervous about cervix closing, may have jumped the gun but
