Shawn, I can't imagine how hard this past year has been for you. I really hope that it is able to end on a high note for you! I will definitely test on Sat because I am going out that night and if I get a positive then I won't have any drinks:-)

Alison- i just read about your journey with infertility... It made me so angry for you!!!! I would have totally lost it with the Dr. by now... WTF is the matter with her????? You've waited long enough, and she really doesn't have a say about which fertility clinic you decide to go! Neither does the clinic staff or the other drs!!!!! So I would go back there, have a screaming fit and demand that they fax the paper or I'll sue them!!! (no idea if that is even possible,but it might scare them a little??) On a more sane approach... Does it have to be your gyn the one who faxes the paper work? Try talking to the clinic in BC, because maybe it would be enough if your GP Dr. does the whole paperwork. GOOD LUCK HONEY!

Normally we do EOD then two days in a row around O, but O had me all messed up (and confused!) this cycle, so it ended up being three days in a row. O well :) (nice pun, right??) We use preseed almost every time. I've always needed a little help in that area so we've always got it on standby!

Thanks Ash! It has been hard and frustrating, but it's out of my control. I guess God's plan has been a little different than our has been. It would sure be nice if we could get on the same d*mn page!! Looking forward to your results on Saturday!!!!!

Thanks Anna!!!

I'm feeling quite zen about everything at the moment. I mean honestly what a great time to have another go at TTC- if it doesn't work out I have numerous opportunities to see a lot of friends and really live it up and enjoy another few weeks of not having to worry about what I eat or drink, or if there is a heart beat, etc- of course I really, really, really want to be pregnant. I have been spending WAY too much time at fertility friend and staring at my chart trying to will it to speak BFP to me LOL. However I hope that if/when I get AF I will not be too gutted and will be able to really enjoy the holidays!

I probably will have a day or 2 pity party but at least I can test well before Christmas Eve!

Confused alert*** I'm almost positive I O'd on Tuesday (cd14), +opk on cd 13 and 14, cramping Tuesday night and all cm disappeared after that). Tonight I went to the bathroom and I'm spotting? I'm pretty sure it's not from O, and its likely too early for IB, so now I have no idea what going on. This has never happened before.

Shawn- That sounds similar to what happened to me this month. I had spotting (just a bit of pink tinged CM) every day for about 5 or 6 days after O. Now it has completely stopped. I don't know why I had it but I am pretty sure I already O'd according to my temps. Of course it wouldn't hurt to BD just in case and to just keep checking CM.

Yeah, we BD'd last night again just in case. I hate being confused.

Good luck tomorrow, I'll be looking for your update!
