thanks for the kind words, all. no AF yet, but i'm on progesterone so she probably won't show up for a few days yet. we are going away for the weekend, so i'm going to stay on the progesterone for a few more days in the hopes that she doesn't show up before we get back into town after this long weekend. if she doesn't show up by tuesday am, i will test again but i'm not holding out hope. these tests were definitely negative even after the 3mins were up. maybe i had a faulty box?! nah. probably not. i've pretty much given up hope even tho AF hasn't arrived.

we're cleared to do the same protocol for another cycle (cd 3-7 - clomid; cd 8-10 follistim; ovidrel; progesterone) so i'll have a cd 3 baseline u/s and hopefully won't have any cysts from this cycle. i had three big follies last time and they are worried one may have become a cyst.

michele i'm holding out hope for you to be joining us SOON on the 2ww thread!! thanks for cheerleading for us all this cycle! (((((hugs)))))

Boo Monica and Vickie... I still have hope for you both as long as the witch hasn't shown her face.

Vickie, so glad to hear you are giving it all you got for these remaining months. I'm with you! Assuming I get my cycle back on track, grrr.

I like that positive outlook! Glad to hear hubby is being a comfort. Hoping he gets his medical issue resolved soon  Can I ask how much of each herb and vitamin you take per day? I'm not sure which ones I will go back to other than my prenatals but I know I'm going to try everything I can.

Hi ladies:

 

Thanks for the kind words and hugs. :heart:

Vicki/Monica - sorry for the so, so disappointing news. Definitely go into the next cycle with a plan. Change can only help.

Monica - are you sure it is over? Are you temping? No AF or temp drop means still a chance right?

Vicki - i would absolutely pull out all the stops and go no holds barred into these last few months. that way you know you have given it your all and no regrets or what ifs down the road.

AFM - I am on CD2. We are completely au naturale now. DH has been so supportive, checking in on me to see if I am OK during the day. Cuddling and talking at night. He can be a sweetie (catch me in a coupla months and I might not be singing his praises - LOL)

I don't know if we will try this month since DH has a medical issue to pursue. Gives me a chance to focus on strengthening my fertility and self. I am doing a fertility cleanse this month and then planning to add some new supplements to my repertoire (sp) such as maca root (in addition to the royal jelly, CoQ10, red rasberry leaf tea and Vitamin B complex). I am also joining my company gym. Soon I will be a sexy hot, fertile mama....of two! Extreme Shock

Bad morning here too. I  am fighting the urge to throw a huge pity party for myself.

I don't have a great plan of action for next month but as I know the end of the year is getting closer I really think I want to go back into TTC full throttle using vitamins, charting, pre-seed, OPK's and anything else I can add in there. I really feel that I want to go down fighting, not just idling through the last few months hoping.

Will you be doing IUI again?  Wishing you all the best for the upcoming cycle.

Too bad we can't all get together once a month- we could have a great big pity party and may even be able  to laugh and have some fun!

Darn thermometer took the suspense away for me. Temp drop to coverline- didn't bother with a test. It's okay though- thinking of a strategy for next cycle. Girls, all the pressure is on you now- Monica, Tricia- hoping for those BFP's!
