Hello ladies! Thought I'd start a new group thread for this month, and I may or may not just let December roll into it because 1. Either I completely forget once we are in December that we are in a new month and I have to change it, or 2. We don't have a lot of action on the message.

How is everyone doing?? Where are you all at in your cycles? What are your Thanks Giving plans? Any fun traditions you'd like to share with us??

Hopefully all is well with everyone!!! Happy November!

Hi girls! I guess I'll go first this month. I have to work the day after Thanksgiving, so I won't get to go see my family again this year :(. Dh and I are pretty good at doing our own little Thanksgiving, just the two of us. I make a roast turkey using only bone in breast. We pick a couple of favorite sides, and a small dessert. As for cycle, we're on CD 12, we go in tomorrow for another follie scan and will probably trigger then. Hopefully all three of my eggs are holding on. I really want a better chance at our IUI cycle this time.

I'll chime in as well. AF showed on Sunday. We're trying naturally this cycle. I'm taking bee propolis (500mg twice per day) and prenatals, as well as following a lower-carb diet to help with regular ovulation.

Keeping FX for a great holiday season with lots of BFPs for our longtimers!

Hye ladies. Popping into say hello :) AF is here (shocker!). We are no longer tracking, and you'd be so proud, I only peed on one thing during this cycle! I'm really trying to step away for now. We can't afford to pursue testing or adoption right now, so we hope for a miracle and wait. once we move next year, we'll probably be looking into adoption. But I'm still out and around, rooting for you all and your BFPs... hugs {{{{{{{{{{{{{{LONGTIMERS!!!!}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} baby dust!

Haha, now that I am home, I trust my internet a little more so I know I won't loose my post this time.

Jenn- I was wondering where you had gone too. I do have to say, I laughed out loud at Tiffany's comment about you only peeing on one stick...... I haven't peed on a stick for over 5 cycles! Every time I go to purchase one, AF shows. She taunts me and drives me crazy! Good luck on not charting cycles.... Take it easy and pray for your miracle.

Well ladies I finally broke down and Googled the symptoms I've been having for the last 5 day's! Ever since O (which I believe happened on Saturday last week) I have been major major.......GASSY! Like, holy cow I turn and it slips out! I'm luck that they don't stink! But I mean every little move, or a complete surprise I pass gas, and I'm not talking about the burping kind, yeah the other kind. So I got fed up because the other day I was at the gym with DH and I warned him up front that I pass gas on the flex of a butt cheek, and after we left he was like "Gosh you weren't kidding" I'm not embarrassed to pass gas, I mean I can't help it! The other night I was in a dead sleep, I'm usually a deep deep sleeper so you'll understand why I was so scared. But I had a dream there were bombs going off, and they were right outside my door, WELL you guess it, I broke wind and almost flew out of the bed! It scared me so bad! I laugh about it now, but I seriously was so scared and completely taken by surprise when the gas continued, all night. UGH. ANY WHO, now that you all know I'm having a gas problem :) I Googled why it would happen and at first I couldn't find anything, but then I noticed a random post by someone about High progesterone and lower GI tract issues, so I Googled, High progesterone causes gas? IT'S TRUE! Here's what I found...

now it ALL makes sense! :)

Hi ladies! I'm finally checking in on this month's thread ... halfway through the month. Better late than never, right?

Tiffany - I'm sorry you have to work the day after Thanksgiving. :( I hope you and your husband have a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner together! J and I have done the turkey breast thing when we've had Thanksgivings alone too. I have everything crossed for you this cycle--everything sounds so promising!

Brittany - I'm not sure if we've formally "met" or not, but I've seen you around the boards. Nice to see you in this thread!

Jenn- I've been meaning to say thank you for sharing your blog post the other day. It was beautifully written.

Shana- you crack me up! I hope this is it for you. I'm counting down the days till you test!

Diane - are you out there? I've been thinking about you. I hope you're hanging in there alright ...

Hi Shana! - How's our cold sore? Is it getting better? I can't believe you have to wait that long for your labs. I feel so spoiled that I get mine the same day.

Rebekah- HI!! I'm glad to see you! It's been awhile. Fingers crossed for you!

Jenn- Loves- I also loved the blog. Thank you for sharing!

Birttany- Hope your month is treating you well!

As for me!- I'm now in the one week wait. Of course I'm over-analyzing EVERY single twinge. I have hade some wicked nausea the last couple days. Hopefully that is a good sign, but I'm afraid to get my hopes up. I went in today for a required follow up screening for the study people. They did confrim that both follies popped an eggie, so that is awesome. My mom keeps joking at twins. Since I'm planning on possibly moving back home so my retired dad and semi retired mom can be day care, I'm ok with twins! Better yet, my parents love the idea! DH and I I have gotten used to working holidays in customer service. DH said we can put the extra cash from time and half for my baby fund :D
