I figured that since it is the 2nd day of March, we should get the March thread going.

Hey Emmy! Thanks for setting us up for March. Unbelievable that it's March, already!!! Also, I was so glad to hear that your DH seems totally on board now, woohoo!! Congrats! That's exciting. :)

Adrienne - lol, you are a fertile myrtle, that's awesome!! stick stick stick!!! Congrats! (and perfect timing for your RE appt today huh? Almost like it's meant to be this time... ;)

Missy - that wellness class sounds great.... definitely, whatever you need to do to take care of yourself. I dont think any of us would be offended in the least. Take care of you...

AFM - the rain, the rain! <---- like, "da plane, da plane!" Sigh. It's back. Rain rain rain.

Here's my survey...
1. Name? **** Andi
2. How long have you been TTC? **** 8 cycles, but over 9 months
3. What, if any, medical interventions are you doing this month/cycle? **** None that I know of yet. RE appt on 3/8
4. What is your favorite kind of weather? **** Not rain, apparently :) Actually, I LOVE the rain... but only when I can stay home and snuggle down with a good book
5. What do you do to try to shake the stress? **** Work out, hang out with DH, talk with friends, write

1. Name? Jenni

2. How long have you been TTC? 9 months, THis is our 9th cycle as well.

3. What, if any, medical interventions are you doing this month/cycle? None really. I'm stll taking the metformin, because I figure that it can't really hurt me.

4. What is your favorite kind of weather? Medium temp (55-70) sunny and clear. Cool enough that you can play outside with no trouble, but not so cold that you don't want to be outside.

5. What do you do to try to shake the stress of TTC taking longer than expected? No good answer for this one.

Thanks for setting up the thread, Emmy! I hope the bean listens to your post and I can stay under the PG in March category . . .

1. Name? Adrienne

2. How long have you been TTC? Forever. Alright fine three years--this is cycle 26.

3. What, if any, medical interventions are you doing this month/cycle? Lots of vitamins, gluten free (ahem, more like reduced) diet, Glumetza 1000-1500 mgs a day, and hopefully some freaking progesterone soon.

4. What is your favorite kind of weather? Hot and sunny!! Come ON spring!

5. What do you do to try to shake the stress of TTC taking longer than expected? I just try to stay upbeat, rant to you guys, confide in friends, do meditation (Yan Xin Qigong--although I'm SUCH a freaking slacker its not even funny!).

And thanks to you guys who asked about my appt! I got BW and should know by tonight if I am definitely PG, what my numbers are, if my prog is low, etc. Regardless of my prog level, when the doctor calls to tell me I'm going to ask him to give me supplements. We talked about it at the appt and he discussed different options. The insurance won't cover it (which is freaking BULL$HIT, I NEED it, it's not like I'm playing around here, or that I haven't given it a fair shake without it). He recommended suppositories but I have to find a compounding pharmacy to get them. I'm going to call CVS later and see if they can do it.

I have another appt on Thursday, which he wanted me to make in case I end up getting the injectable progesterone so he can inject me--but I would rather have the suppositories because his office is 45 mins away from me and I don't want to drive down there for injections several times a week for the next three months.

So that's that. Now we just play the waiting game.

Adrienne -

I hope that you are able to get what you need from the pharmacy. I haven't said congrats yet, but I'm sending you all the vibes I can so that this one will stay stuck.

((HUGS))

Thanks Jenni--don't worry, I haven't said congrats to myself yet either!!

The doctor called me--I am definitely pregnant, my numbers were 16--lol--which sounds low but it is fine because it is so early. I found a compounding pharmacy near me that will make prog suppositories, and I go to pick them up tomorrow! Yay! If this doesn't work, God help me.

Emmy – I am so excited for you and DH. What a relief that he agreed to the donor sperm. The sun is coming out for you. :) Hope the other things start to look better along the way.

Missy – I can understand what you mean about the obsessing in an unhealthy way. I do that sometimes. But I support your decision of limiting your time on the board even though I will miss you. :( Hope it helps you relax and conceive soon.

Adrienne – Thanks. I hope too that this cycle is the one.
I love your temps and that BFP. Congratulations!! I really hope that this is your sticky BFP so tons of sticky bean vibes for you. You need to move out of this thread. Hehe. Of course, I will still stalk you on the PG thread. And secretly hope to join you soon.
Regarding the progesterone suppositories, there is a mail pharmacy in MA that my clinic uses and the prices are cheaper than regular pharmacies. It’s called Freedom Fertility Pharmacy and the phone number is 1-800-660-4283. Your dr. would have to call your prescription in and give them your phone number so they can contact you for the rest of the info and payment. They also take the insurance if it will cover it or part of it. You can give it a try if CVS doesn’t have a compounding lab.

I guess I should answer my own questions! I posted, then realized I needed to do some things before work, and am now back on the computer.

1. Name? Emmy
2. How long have you been TTC? 25th cycle, coming up on 2 years
3. What, if any, medical interventions are you doing this month/cycle? nothing- getting ready for ivf in 3 months
4. What is your favorite kind of weather? I like it warm, 75ish and sunny, so I can be outside and not be cold
5. What do you do to try to shake the stress of TTC taking longer than expected? lots of alcohol... j/k, sort of. Trying to find things that distract me, mostly-- I'm taking another cooking class next week!
