    @snarkybiochemist: I'm going to have to sit out a cycle for Clomid this next cycle (If I'm not PG now) - we're going on vacation and I wouldn't be able to come in for my CD3 bloodwork and ultrasound. Frustrating!

    @bizwitch: I'm sorry, I hope you are just pregnant right now and it doesn't matter

    @snarkybiochemist: Let's hope so! Only 5 DPO so there's no way to know yet.

    @bizwitch: When are you testing and when are you leaving for vacation?

    @snarkybiochemist: I am leaving for vacation a week from today, on 2/23. That's the day AF is due! I am really going to try to not test before vacation. Might do it there if AF doesn't show. I have two friends with toddlers that I'm visiting and it might be fun to test w/ them around. Or I might just try to ignore it altogether and test when I get back!

    EDIT: Or I might test on Wednesday, 11 DPO. LOL!

    @bizwitch: My decision is often based on drinking, how much will I want to drink during something and how much of a pain will it be to hide not drinking

    @snarkybiochemist: LOL I feel you. So far it has never mattered one way or the other, because I haven't gotten pregnant. The months I abstained I was like... well that was stupid, that I skipped out on social stuff for no reason. I don't trust myself to go out and not drink, when everyone else in the room is drinking. When I was on antibiotics I basically turned down all social invitations that involved booze! I did do a fun bike race that began and ended at a bar, and that was hard enough!

    @bizwitch: I wouldn't want to know for certain that I was pregnant if I had something planned (like my valentines dinner, hence not testing) during the TWW I have tried both abstaining and not and it hasn't made a lick of difference, so now I drink because I don't want to have to miss out on more then I have too

    "The event involved wine, nudity and slapping women with strips of goat hide drenched in sacrificial blood. Yes, you read that right. Ancient people do the darnedest things. Anyway, the women allegedly welcomed this because being marked in this way was thought to make them more fertile."

    Is it strange that my first thought was "Wonder if I can get anyone to slap me with blood-soaked strips of goat hide?" LOL!

    @mrskansas: I also had a weird dream last night! My sister announced she was pregnant (first baby) and they had this classroom sized white board displayed with all this different calendar like info on it. And then in one corner it said "R and j expecting, oct, first try go j!!!" lol I was annoyed in the dream.

    And in other news, started my period!

    Ugh. So I'm 17 (yes. 17) DPO. No sign of AF. No positive test. I'm 99% sure I'm out, I'm just SO ready for the next cycle to start already!

    I'm hoping that maybe the perfect hormone panel and long LP this month might possibly lead to something better next month (that's what happened last time I got pregnant...we got my hormones in line, I had a 18 day LP, and then next cycle it all seemed to come together)

    Our last two losses were due in January and February, so I'm really hoping we can conceive earlier this time because having all the anniversaries falling in clumps is getting really hard to handle.

    First positive pregnancy, beginning of Jan.
    Second baby due, Jan. 8
    First M/C, beginning of Feb.
    Third baby due, Feb. 11

    Second pregnancy conceived, April
    Third pregnancy, May

    Second baby died, Sept. 27
    Third baby, Aug. 8

    I need something good to happen in spring and early winter!

    @MaryM:

    I'm coming to terms and at peace with the idea that my preg test tomorrow will be I have no symptoms whatsoever. I just wanna get it over with so I can call my OBGYN and get the ball rolling.

    I think with our family vacations and holidays that happened, I was really hoping to get pregnant so we could announce to families at special occasions. Now that they're over with, maybe my body won't feel so much pressure anymore. That's my theory!

    Just remembered I have a birthday party to go to Saturday while my husband stays home with my son! At least I can really enjoy myself and let loose, I would rather be pregnant of course, but it's a unusual occurrence to go out for me these days so it should be a nice time!

    Well, I had my appointment with the RE today. He went ahead and did an ultrasound and to my surprise I never ovulated. So I'm on cycle day 41 with nothing going on. He recommended a bunch of different tests and medications and my husband and I decided we are done. This process is too much when we already have an amazing daughter at home.
    So, I will no longer be on the POAS boards but will keep checking in and cheering you all on!

    @mrskansas: in sorry that the news from the RE was disappointing. TTC really is an emotionally exhausting roller coaster and I wish you and your family all the best!
