Lora--Boo for a BFN. :(

Alison--Your doctor makes me want to deck someone. I'm so glad you're looking at specialists in other places.

Adrienne--Come back and update us!

Shawn--Welcome back! I hope your stay is short and sweet.

Ash--Looks like the EWCM is back today. Good luck! :)

AFM--I noticed some watery/EWCM today, which seemed early until I looked at previous charts. I guess things are going to get back on track quickly for me. Now, to figure out how to seduce DH tonight after he's worked for 13 hours. At least he isn't on night shift this time.

I'm definitely Oing today- WOO HOO!!! I'm feeling ovulation pains, have EWCM, and just basically feel it, so hopefully our timing was good! I can't remember when is the best time, today I was super antsy thinking we should be BDing the whole day LOL. But unfortunately we won't be able to until later tonight. I hope it doesn't matter in the long run.

Liz- How exciting that your cycles go so fast. I hope you are able to get DH in the mood when he comes home from work:)

Ash--Did you BD yesterday? wait...I'll check your chart. Ok, this morning. And temp still looks good!

Adrienne--Boo for hemorroids. Would you believe I never got them? And bigger BOO for all those BFNs.

No BDing for me last night. DH wound up calling off work today; he's got a version of the stomach bug Peter and I had last week. Peter just threw up, DH just had diarrhea. I had both. On the plus side, I lost 4 pounds and they haven't come back!

Adrienne...my hemorroids have been acting up for months. I think I may have to go to the dr bc over the counter not working. And I know i am not pregnant. I did not know that was a sign of being pg. Anyway...hope you find out soon if you are or not bc I know it is killing you. And I remember the suspense when we were ttc wondering if i was pg or not.

Adrienne - that makes me feel tons better that the drug helped you! I was thinking the side effects were all for nothing. I think I have a thyroid issue too - but all my hormone levels are 'borderline' - so no big issues. Still, I have doubts. Kinda want a second opinion from a FS. As for you - if you're feeling the symptoms and spotting... maybe!! Fingers crossed.

Ashley - I'm looking into acupuncture! Dust for you right now too.

Liz - So sorry to hear you're all sick - but yay for the pre-holidays weight loss?? :)

Sandy - Yuck! I feel for ya.

AFM - Well ladies... I have done a TON of research over the last couple days and DH and I talked a LOT about it. We've decided to forego the local clinic and go to out-of-province. Sigh. I was in SHOCK when I learned that British Columbia wait times are 4-6 WEEKS, compared to months here. I can do an initial consult by phone before making an actual appt, and then once I'm there they can try to cram as much into a few days as possible. Hee. There are a few different clinics we were debating but ultimately chose one when I saw a video of the main doctor and it suddenly just "felt" right - like I knew he is the one to help us. As cheesy as that sounds.

The extra expenses (travel, obviously) are hard to swallow but it's impossible to ignore the wait. I've been waiting 2 years already - I almost feel like I "deserve" flying elsewhere just to try, kwim? I could complete my consult, have my first IUI and be pregnant before I even see someone here - how can I not?! Plus, we've decided on Vancouver - mini vacation!!
