Oh Buffyx, I somehow missed that it was you! I recognize the username. That is wonderful that you're working on #3!!!

Also, that's great news, Bun, about weaning during pregnancy. That would be helpful for us!

Girls, I am FREAKING OUT. I just found out that our new insurance has AWFUL network coverage. My OB/GYN, midwife, and birthing center aren't covered, and in fact, they have such a terrible relationship with the insurance company that they refuse to even bill for out-of-network coverage!!! My son's pediatrician isn't covered, either! We all have to find entirely new doctors, and the only options are basically the major providers in the area -- the two hospitals. It looks like not only will I have to settle for the worst possible care, but absolutely have to have a hospital birth. They are so pro-intervention that I am TERRIFIED. With my health issues, I was really hoping to use my midwife again because she has firsthand experience with me. I am in a total panic, and near tears. Doing it out of pocket isn't an option, so I am literally stuck with the hospital network and their doctors.

That's absolutely heart wrenching, Dill. I'm so sorry... is traveling an option for you? Maybe there's a birthing centre in nearby city that would take your insurance?

I'm in Alaska, it's not very dense here, city-wise. As it is, I live an hour from the nearest city/hospital. The nearest midwife covered by my new insurance is 400 miles away!

Woohoo! So, in a flash of brilliance (or not-mom-brain, anyway), I got in touch with my midwife and asked her who she'd recommend. As it turns out, there IS a midwife that my insurance will cover over at the hospital that I have to go through. I now have an appointment set with her to have my IUD pulled early next month!

Ah yay!! Such a relief!

I started using OPKs day after removal. I had a surge about 7 days after. No luck, but I definitely recommend if you get cheapie opks.

Yep, I buy them in 50-packs (along with pregnancy tests because I have a serious POAS addiction ) and I'll be starting right away, along with temping! I'm going to upgrade my cycle tracking app to the paid version at the start of September, too. I'm actually due to ovulate shortly after I get it removed, so I doubt it'll happen right away (no time for lining to build back up). I bled last time, but that's because the removal caused a MMC. No clue if it'll cause bleeding this go-around. But you never know, September could still be my month! That would be exciting, I'd be able to get my blood test done and know the gender before Christmas!

I bled a little bit after my removal. It was pink and light, I think it was cervix irritation.

Yay, fellow POAS addict.

POAS addict does not even begin to describe it. I start testing 8DPO, often more than once a day if I get line eye. I'm terrible! Last time we were TTC, hubby banned me from early testing (so I just tested before he woke up in the morning). Even with my IUD in, I keep a few tests handy, just in case!

Good to know that you didn't have any major bleeding after your removal. That gives me a little extra hope for September.

DH turns blind eye from my testing. I tried to explain OPKs to him and I could see he checked out behind the eyes.

I have about 25 OPKs left over from this cycle... (Tested 2x, okay 3x... since CD6). Got surge on CD7 which freaked me out but surged again on CD 18 (yay) and now I'm just staring at the rest of them, wanting to say "NEVER AGAIN!"

I didn't buy HPT this round though - I just wasted sooo many last cycle, all BFN. Just feeds me peeing on them when I don't need to. So instead I got Walmart 88 cent ones and Dollar Tree ones (both kinds they carry) and I have one FRER from last cycle. 6 total in my stash bag. Going to resist until 9 DPO.
