Sorry I haven't been on so much lately. I have been snowed under with work and studying (back at university... 6 months left on my masters!).
Lazy - fingers crossed for increased lining.
OMG - any news?
Profwife - anything new?
Raychay, good to hear from you!
Pathos - your chat looks lovely
Mommy - good luck!
nikki - thinking of you as always, my nearly-cycle buddy. Strange pattern with your cycles. It will be interesting to see if that pattern continues. You're making me want to go back to my cycles to see if I can find a pattern... nothing like analysing data to get me interested!! LOL! Maybe I can export it into excel.... :-) (my inner-geek is beginning to show!)
Ladies, I've also embarked on a journal so I don't have to bombard you with rants and raves. I'll give it a go for a while. It was sparked by a close friend telling me yesterday that she's pregnant and while I'm extremely happy for her, I realised that we stopped BCP at the same time and we have been more actively trying than them and my cycles are more regular than hers. I think I need to vent more to stop thinking about it. A journal it is. And this seems as good place as any.
A journal is a great idea. I don't know why I didn't start one sooner.
I always find it hard when friends get pregnant as it brings it all home for me that I'm not especially when we were on similar flight paths. When it's just other people generally I don't feel the same pressure I'm starting to except its just taking longer than planned.
After a stressful morning at the clinic, my iui is going ahead tomorrow! Exciting or what?! I have rather dodgy looking smallish follicle and the thinnest lining that they allow. 6mm but its going ahead! Xxx
Lol the crossing everything apart from legs. Dodgy follicle as it grew then shrunk but blood shows it appears to be ready to go?! Reckon it's between 14/15 which is small by normal standards. Yes I have been googling again xx
Newbie: Congrats on having 6 months left! That must feel pretty good.
Nikki: Good luck with the EWCM!
Lazy: I hope you are doing well. Good luck with the IUI.
ProfWife: I hope you had a good time with your in laws Good luck when those OPK's turn positive!
Good ole Aunt Flow decided to finally show up yesterday. I've hated that this has been a wasted cycle, but hopefully this next one will be better. All the stress and pressure from work lately has got my whole body off. Here is some TMI... haven't had a normal poop in weeks...headaches...no good sleep...now lovely cramps...I just feel off. Anyone here do relaxation techniques or something you do that you are willing to share? I'm not the exercise type person, but it appears the stress is starting to affect my body. I would hate for my work to be getting in the way of us having another baby. Especially since my husband and I have been close lately, and it's been nice. Okay, thank you if you read my vent. I hope AF will quit making me feel sick soon. I stayed home today to catch up on work...how sad is that, lol? But, it turns out I'm just in bed. I hope everyone has a nice week.
