    I'm quiet but still here. O has been messing with me this month, Glow kept pushing it out. But, finally got a postive OPK this AM!

    No idea when I'm going to POAS...probably 9/9, AF is expected 9/11.

    @yellowbeach:
    Thank you, mamacita!

    @SweetCaroline: I'm sorry that OV is being a witch this month! πŸ™ I will keep my fingers crossed 🀞 that you have a nice, strong OV and hit it lucky this month.
    P.S. I changed your POAS date from the 4th to the 9th.

    @Kaohinani: Lets go ahead and put me as TBD since I still haven't gotten a positive OPK yet. I'm starting to lose hope this cycle. Perhaps switching from Femara to Clomid wasn't the best idea.

  7. Kaohinani

    grapefruit / 4144 posts

    @Mrs.Panda: I can do that for you: "TBD" IT IS! I am sorry that I can not be of more help -- I only know of Clomid and injectables (Follistim and Ovidrel) and their side effects on my body (* Clomid is EVIL! πŸ‘Ή). My OBGYN wouldn't allow me to take Femara since I showed poor response (and a far later ov) to Clomid. It didn't help that I am of AMA (* nearly 40 here πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ). When I inquired about Femara, he stated that he preferred I start seeing an RE and begin injectables, which I did and I react TOO well to injectable gonadotropins. I overstim on anything over 25-IU per injection and my OV date stays between CD 8-12. I digress, @Sams Mom took a couple cycles of Femara (after her horrid experiences on Clomid) and, if I remember correctly, she had an anovulatory cycle (or a freakishly long cycle ... I can't remember) her first run and a short cycle during the 2nd month. Perhaps you could ask her about it. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

    So, I am only 8 dpo but I keep feeling as though my AF is going to come on any minute. πŸ˜• I am having bloating 🎈, cramps ⚑, sciatic pain running from my left medial gluteal down my left hamstring β˜„πŸ¦΅, as well as, an increase in cervical discharge πŸ’§. It began about an hour ago and I keep making 🚽 powder room "checks." I know I complain a ton about having a freakishly long LP every cycle, but if I get my AF at 8 or 9 dpo this cycle, I am going to be shattered. Atleast with a long LP, Shrodinger's "baby"πŸ‘Ά (* formerly "cat" 😹) can exist for a week. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ Feeling pretty cruddy πŸ€• ATM. Ok, rant over.

    Totally not POAS related, BUT I get to shadow the surgeon I work for in the OR tomorrow. I'm pretty excited, but a little nervous seeing surgery first hand. Blood and guts that don't belong to me or my child don't bother me... But you never know.

  11. Kaohinani

    grapefruit / 4144 posts

    @Sams Mom: You are so unbelievably lucky!!!! I am jade green with envy atm. Surgery and the human body fascinates me ... bit you already know that.

  12. Sams Mom

    grapefruit / 4492 posts

    @Kaohinani: I'm pretty excited because he's basically doing one of everything that he does regularly. So I will see a tag and wire directed lumpectomy, a re-excisional lumpectomy, lap cholecystectomy, tag directed biopsy, and bilateral mastectomy with tissue expander placement

    @Sams Mom: Soooooo, cool! πŸ˜πŸ‘ ... πŸ€” and now I don't like you as much (absolutely joking), because you get to see awesome things at work and the highlight of my workday is conversing with young adults who have a limited interest in proper sentence structure, or in reading American classics. πŸ˜–

    @yellowbeach: πŸ€” You need to implement a "take a fellow bee to work day" program! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ I would "crazy πŸ€ͺ fight" someone for the chance to win a day to observe in the ER. πŸ˜ΆπŸ˜ΆπŸ˜ΆπŸ˜‚

    @yellowbeach: one of my best friends is a tech, she has already threatened my life over getting near anything blue πŸ˜‚

    @Kaohinani: I wonder if there is anyway to get in on observing surgeries with being an employee or student πŸ€”

  17. yellowbeach

    nectarine / 2640 posts

    @Sams Mom @Kaohinani: After I'm officially "done" with all the IVF stuff and not an active patient anymore, the Embryologist at my RE said she'd let me shadow her for a day and learn about everything. Almost makes me want to stop now so I can geek out!

  18. Kaohinani

    grapefruit / 4144 posts

    @Sams Mom: I believe that to observe a surgery at the hospital affiliated with my university, one has to be a PreMed or of a similar field. I do know that the Biology students, nursing students, PTs, and Biomechanics Majors have a chance to work on cadavers, though. (* I did as an Exercise Science and Biomechanics student.) It is not the same, though. πŸ€” Surgery seems so much more exciting. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜

    totally popping in like the weirdo stalker I am (hi I'm snarkybiochemist and I totally stalk due date and poas boards and cheer you guys on)
    @Sams Mom: this is such a cool opportunity when I volunteered at a hospital in high school and college I was weirdly allowed to watch so many things the first surgery I ever watched was an open heart surgery and the rules the surgeon gave me were 1) don't touch anything blue 2) don't speak unless spoken to and 3) if you are going to faint try to fall backwards

    @snarkybiochemist: πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ our PA told me if I feel like I'm going down to find a wall to slide down. If I leave the room someone has to find me and make sure that I didn't pass out/hit my head.

  21. Kaohinani

    grapefruit / 4144 posts

    @yellowbeach: Lady, you HAVE to record that for me (please? πŸ™). I am fascinated with reproductive science (as everyone already knows! πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚) and worked with a geneticist [at XULA] who specialized in human genetics and reproduction. I even audited one of his classes! I would be so interested to shadow in ANY medical field.

    See a handful of my favorite texts πŸ˜‰ ... My Biomechanics texts, Medical dictionary, and NASM book are all in my gym:

    @Kaohinani: it was amazing and its only now that I realize just how crazy it was that I saw an open heart surgery at 15. I work at a medical school now on the research side but sometimes can sneak into lectures and such and its just great learning everything science and medical

    @Kaohinani: I'm there with you. I FEEL like I'm going to get AF and there is no way I will have a this month and I'm also 9dpo..
    Have you ever been pregnant? With my DD, I felt like I was pregnant when I was. But I also BDed the entire month then. Three times around O this month doesn't feel like enough... haha also my nipples stopped hurting. Now I just feel bloated and blah. Why do we get so obsessive when we TTC? I want to forget about it until I'm like oups i'm late! haha no way

  26. Kaohinani

    grapefruit / 4144 posts

    @LiliBillie: Yes, ma'am, I've had 2 live births (both via csection - one was an emergency and the other was scheduled due to me being high risk and of AMA) ... DD is 11 and DS is 4. πŸ€” Both of my BFP symptoms were so dissimilar between them, that I don't know what I'd expect from a 3rd! πŸ˜‚ Right now, I just feel so, "blaaaahhhh. πŸ€•" I can empathize with you completely.

    Hi friends! Sorry I have been MIA, I just was trying to avoid getting caught up in poas when I couldn’t do it myself.
    So, things have been crazy and intense and busy, so I was planning on waiting another couple of months, but now I’m leaning towards starting my transfer cycle next month (as in starting in 2ish weeks).
    I’ve been having a lot of endometriosis pains, and it’s making me nervous about decreased ivf success. The thing is, I started a job this summer as interim executive director of a small nonprofit and officially started (no longer interim) in August. So, getting a good schedule down and everything has been tough, but I don’t want to blow my chances because things are busy.
    Ugh, I don’t know what to do, but I’m thinking I may be back on the boards sooner rather than later.

  28. Kaohinani

    grapefruit / 4144 posts

    @LAZB: OMG, I am so happy to see you on here! I am glad you took a mental break but you were very missed. Congratulations on the new position! πŸ₯³ That is spectacular. I do understand your conflicting feelings about going through your ART process with Endo and while working as I have the same concerns; however you are further along on your journey than I. We will support you in whatever you decide. Anyway, welcome [whenever you are ready to join in] and good luck !!!

    @LiliBillie: Decided to have a glass of wine 🍷 while making dinner in order to ease the crampiness ... If you do not have an aversion to alcohol [normally or in the TWW], I greatly advise it. πŸ˜‰ If you do, I apologize for suggesting it.

    @LAZB: Fantastic! In any case, even if you choose not to join, please, stay in touch. So many of us (including myself, with my Endo questions which can not be answered through searches or studies) look to your experience and knowledge. That stated, I would LOVE to see you on the board (probably selfishly) so I can witness the progress of your first IVF/FET cycle and (HOPEFULLY) your beautiful rainbow.

    β€’ Cycle Day: 10
    β€’ TTC Cycle (or months TTC): 1
    β€’ Ovulation Date: any day now (slightly irregular cycles and I went early last month. Fun fact. Last time I went more than a day or two early was the month before we conceived DD. AF came on 18th instead of 24th/25thish. Last month, AF was due on 24/5thish. Came on 18th).
    β€’ POAS Date: 18th unless symptomatic (with DD I had symptoms early and got BFP on day 18). I would a couple of days earlier but that interferes with the craziness below. I don't want a BFN on a special day.
    β€’ Baby #: 2. DD will be 5 in a couple of weeks.
    BONUS, For Fun:
    (1) Is there anything exciting you'd like to share?
    Not right now. We just both got new jobs and moved so I want to settle for a while.
    (2) Do you have any exciting plans for the month (* holiday plans, vacations, reunions, anniversaries, or birthdays)?
    My birthday, DD's birthday. Wedding anniversary. All in a 5 day span. We keep things busy in September. In October I'm going to Boston to stay with a friend I met in an online due date group for DD!
    (3) Are you trying anything "different" this TTC cycle?
    Not using protection
    ... Also- if you wish, you may link your BBT chart (if you have one and want to share).

    Side note: reading back through this, 18 seems to be our lucky number...

    I've missed out on so much again. I guess that's what you get for living in a different time zone.

    Fun fact, I'm unemployed today! (Just for this one day.)

    @Kaohinani: @LiliBillie: I'm sorry you're not feeling that optimistic. Fingers crossed it leads to a great outcome regardless.

    @Sams Mom: Wow, that sounds like a great opportunity! I love the three simple and straightforward rules @snarkybiochemist: shared.

    @LAZB: Great to have you with us again! I get your work dilemma, I'm right in the middle on a job change too and I still haven't really made up my mind on whether to start IVF in November as planned or to push it back a few months, so I don't have to take too much time off right after starting in a new place.

    @Kaohinani: I hope you enjoyed the wine
    I don't know what's up with me but I'm so so low energy. I have no energy/motivation to even watch a Netflix show. Last night I took my 10 months old puppy out for a walk with my 5 y o daughter and some rude man rolled his eyes at me because my pup was barking and I came home and cried. Also I almost tested last night because it's driven me bunkers and I'm the least patient person you will ever know. Anyways. I looked up #9dpo on instagram and saw so many I decided to continue to be patient. Who is testing soon? @Maybebaby??? Cheering for you!

    @LiliBillie: I woke this morning and all cramping had ceased. I am extremely bloated but nothing else atm. As I stated before, this cycle was going to be a crap-shoot anyway since I had a large follicle so early (and my RE and his partner couldn't agree as to whether or not I should trigger and DTD versus not triggering and avoiding all BDing). I'm hopeful but not greatly invested. As for you, I am sorry that you have had so many TWW symptoms and find yourself emotional. It is never fun to feel that way. Of course, if you feel the need to POAS, please, feel free to do so and share ... all of the POAS addicts will be thrilled to begin seeing some HPTs. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ
