Not too much happening here lol.

On the TTC front, I expect to get a positive opk either today or tomorrow, and I am actually predicting today when I get home because of my borderline higher temperature today. Hopefully we get some good timing this month, but I don't want to even talk to DH about the timing, I just would rather see if/when we are in the mood next and hope it matches, kwim?

My general attitude about it is much better, because at this point I am looking ahead to summer when we can start the adoption process and get tested. I would love it if we got PG before then... but am just happy that we WILL be making progress by summer even if I am not PG yet. DH has been talking about how nice it would be to start with a 3/4 year old and skip the diapers and sleepness nights lol, so you know where his mindset is (although he is sweet enough to always remind me that he would still be excited if we got PG after all).

In other news, the cruise doesn't look like it will happen this year, my parents are thinking it will probably be next year or the year after. A part of me is worried about planning it that far away because who knows where we will be with TTC at that point (PG? with a baby? with a 2-4 yr old?) but my DH was smart, and reminded me that really... barring specific times of pregnancy and baby, I could still go on a cruise with any of those instances... and we will know if we have those few problems way before booking cruise time anyways... so its fine. We will probably take a little trip with them this summer instead of a big trip.

School is INSANE! Conferences are this week, and open house is in a month (usually its in May, so I am freaking out) and my credentialing program is tough and in full swing... so I haven't had lots of time to post (probably shouldn't even be posting now... but you asked, so its okay to make an exception).

A few personals, since I am wasting time here anyways :-P lol

Jenni and Missy- I am really hopeful for what the next few days brings for you two. I'm hoping, and praying and crossing my fingers and toes for it to be both of your months.

Andi- I totally get the accountant thing, both of my parents are accountants, and since my birthday is April 8th (super close to tax time) I NEVER celebrated it until usually after the 20th, but definitely not until after the 15th. So I understand the stresses there. ((hugs)) for having trouble with this whole process. If it makes you feel better... I am glad for my sake that you are still with me here lol. I totally am hopeful for you and Jenni and I to graduate and move onto Pregnant land, but as time goes on, I just picture myself being the lone survivor of our original WTT group, and that thought depresses me but knowing that you and I (Jenni I would count you in here, but that is how hopeful I am for you this month)are in here together somehow makes it better.

All that to say I hope that whenever one of us graduates to Pregnant land, that the other one does too, so neither of us ever have to feel like the only one of our original group.

Not to say that I am not super happy to have a great support group with all of the other ladies here, but I am sure you know exactly what I mean about seeing the rest of your original group of friends move on, and you don't want to be left behind.

So, Andi, I hope you O soon and that you can get your appointment to see the specialist too, but I also hope that whenever/however it happens, I hope we graduate together.

waving hi to everyone else!

"I'm not sure I think it deserves to be the highest grossing movie of all time. :/ "

Yeah, but the highest grossing movie are never like "technically and cinematically excellent movies". In fact, the ten highest grossing movies are: three Harry Potter Movies, two lord of the rings movies, two pirates of the Caribbean movies, Titanic, and Avatar. Among that list I can definitely say (IMO) that Avatar is MORE deserving than any of the others! People just like spending money to be entertained--they aren't thinking about quality.

That is really promising sounding about the CM! Hopefully it will bring you a BFP soon. :-)

"My general attitude about it is much better, because at this point I am looking ahead to summer when we can start the adoption process and get tested."

On my new EC (teehee) one of the girls had been trying for over two years, and had just started the steps for adoption, and ended up PG! Even me and DH--it was when DH finally agreed that we could look into Foster parenting that I got my BFP this summer! I think your mindset is great--having that pressure taken off the process can do wonders!

"my DH was smart, and reminded me that really... barring specific times of pregnancy and baby, I could still go on a cruise with any of those instances... "

Weeeeellll, the rules for Royal Caribbean (I looked into it when we went on our cruise last year) are that you can't be more than 27 weeks pregnant, and babies younger than (6 mos? a year? I forget exactly)cannot go on cruises, and you have to pay full price no matter how young the baby is, even if it is only having BM. I don't know about other cruise lines, but I bet the rules aren't that similar. One thing about IF though is that if/when you get PG, it's not really going to matter if you have to miss out on a cruise. And hopefully your family would be able to work around these times for you. Just thought I'd share since I'd looked into it.

"All that to say I hope that whenever one of us graduates to Pregnant land, that the other one does too, so neither of us ever have to feel like the only one of our original group. "

My "original group" was Grace, Kim, Emmy, and Megan, followed shortly after by Anna, Lorien, and others I am forgetting. Kind of crazy that except for me and Emmy, they all have babies between 8-15 months old!!! I'm hoping that this year will see us final "triers" across the finish line! (I won't really consider myself graduated until April). But we've almost been lapped by some of them--ready to start trying for number two! Man.

But I guess I have never REALLY thought about it like that. I have more in common with the ladies in this thread than many of the people in my "original" group. And it's not like I'm not still friends with those guys, too . . . idk!

I'm sitting on the couch, with DH and BIL (hopeful back-up donor) and I can't bring myself to bring up the question we asked him 3 weeks ago. I need to tell him some updated information (about exactly what he needs to do) now that I've picked a doctor. We've got a movie on, so it isn't an easy time. I am almost afraid of his answer. I really don't want it to be no, so I don't want to ask. Hopefully I can give you a better update in a few hours or tomorrow morning. I hate this!

Adrienne, sigh, being lapped. It hurts more for the people who have lapped me IRL, though.

Oh Emmy, that sounds like pure torture!! I think you need to be fair to yourself and not just to BIL and definitely ask him to at least let you know where his head is at right now. I hope we get a great update from you SOON!!!!!

Lisa - thanks for poppin in! Glad I could help you to procrastinate. Use me as your excuse to not be doing your work any time, heehee. :) Yah, I think the cruise thing will all work itself out... one way or another you can make the vacation work regardless of what "stage" you're in. I hope you guys plan something else though for this summer... I know for me it makes a huge difference to have something on the calendar to look forward to. I know it's been hard to feel "left behind" by all the rest of our WTT group, but it's gonna happen for us too. *squeeze!* It would be awesome to graduate together, I'll keep my fingers crossed for that especially. :)

Adrienne - yah yah, that is SO true! None of those movies are really all that "quality". Although, I AM a big Harry Potter fan... ;o)

A quickie AFM update, my dr. called back and scheduled our initial visit with the specialist for next thursday to start the bloodwork and SA. I'm glad to have it booked and know we're moving forward. Yay!

Yes, seeing your original group move on is hard, although I agree with Emmy that it is harder with people IRL. And I am right with Adrienne that it sux big time to see the people who were around when I first joined WTT and saw them get that BFP and now are TTC again. I have already started worrying about what I will do if my younger gets pregnant again. Her baby is almost 1, but I don't know how far apart she wants her kids.

I am starting to lose hope this cycle. No real reason why, it's just how I feel. My progesterone was 29.1 on Friday, very high since the average is 15. So I definitely had a good O. But I had high prog. levels before. The temps are in line with my previous clomid cycles, and actually a little lower than my second clomid cycle. Although I have started waking up 20 minutes earlier since then, so I don't know if that means anything. I am starting to think that if this cycle is not successful, I should take a month off meds and get a lap. Since I had so many side effects of clomid, I don't want to take it again and then O on the left side and decide against the IUI. So if I do the lap, then I can know for sure what is going on with the left tube and maybe fix it.

Emmy I REALLY hope you got some good news last night. It sounds like all three of you are scared to bring it up! That does seriously sound like torture but hopefully you had a good convo afterwards! I SOOO hope, you really deserve some good news.
