Awe JenniRen!! That's terrible...on top of no seeing ovulation yet, your friend is giving birth to the very thing you are trying so hard for. :( Great for her, but bad for you. I understand the jealousy and it's competely natural so don't you dare beat yourself up for that part. So where is this O? Is she at least planning on sending you a postcard to let you know where she's at? Is this the first time you've O'd this late? I know you usually have pretty unpredicatable cycles. There are a couple girls on the board that have decided to try Soy to O earlier. I haven't done the research myself and I dont' know if they are taking the vitamin version or drinking Soy milk but might be worth the research. *Big hugs* We're going to get you there...I have time to now start brain storming for you! ;)

Okay, you know I'm a nut...so I did some research for you...there is a lot on soy apparently....it's acting like Clomid in a lot of ways. It doesn't work for everyone but than, neither does Clomid...this is a quote from one Mom's experience with how much and where to find it... :)

"You can buy soy isoflavones in Wal-Mart (Spring Valley brand- 40 mg), or in a health food store (where I got mine). You take 150-160 mg all at once on cd 3-7 or 5-9 (some ppl have done 1-5, 2-6, etc.--it has to be inthe beginning of the cycle). It supposed to work like clomid, and can tell you it certainly does. I have a history of long, annov. cycles, and did 4 cycles of clomid--all with an O, but a BFN. Last month I tried soy (cd 3-7, 150 mg), and I 'd on cd 17 (a true miracle in itself)! The best part was that I got my BFP 11 days later. Also, most ppl have very little side effects with soy."

So just in case you want to add anything to your fanny pack, here's an idea. ;)

Boo!!! Tell those ovaries that being fashionably late is simply unacceptable. Geez, they were supposed to O the same time as me!!!! Ugh!!!!

I know Tammy is doing her darndest to get you knocked up *but* soy isoflavones & pcos aren't a good combo. Here's a link:

Ugh! Stupid baby jealousy :( Maybe you can try & use the wee one to your advantage? Inhale all that yummy brand new baby scent & let it absorb into your pores & maybe, just maybe it'll jumpstart your ovaries & voila! Out will pop an Eggie!! ;)

If that doesn't end your ovaries vacation then hopefully going back to the fruit & veg & exercise will do the trick!

JenniRen I LOVE your plan to get healthy and keep loosing weight and just feel good about yourself! If anything, that is such a great thing right now! :)

The baby jealousy doesn't end when you have the craving, however, once your craving is satisfied, it's like whatever. ;) My craving hybernated, I totally thought it was gone after having my 3rd but sprang back into action when the new hubby and apparently his new fresh swimmers came into action! LOL So gross!! ;) My mind is always in the gutter, don't mind me! :O But seriously there is a wives tale that said that a women who hang around new babies are more likely to kick start their ovaries into releasing eggs, sometimes even more than one. It's kinda like when a women sync their periods. I don't know how true it is but girl, suck in that baby smell!! Angela's right, let it absorb into your pores and lets see what happens! I'd laugh my bootie off if that was the secret to your TTC woes! We'd all be out there sniffing babies!!
