So I am in a new 2WW as of today, again a natural cycle with only acupuncture to help me along. This is my last natural attempt for a while, so praying for a little miracle in one way, and happy to move to assistance next cycle in another way and just get on with it.....if I could just start my family I don't care how they get here!!
My sister had movie ending to her fertility journey. 5 years of trying naturally, clomid, alternative treatments, lots of IUI's and lots of heartache and then 4 days before her 1st IVF cycle started she got BFP naturally. I don't expect it to happen twice in one familiy but I will try to stay positive this cycle anyway!!
Anyone joining me? Anyone out there on roughly the same time scale no matter what kind of cycle?
I hope you can join me too!!! We could even come up with a theme song or something. Yes, I am still in the clouds. I hope I'm not being naive, but I have a very good feeling about my second beta tomorrow. I was talking to my belly on my way into work this morning, and I started crying. The hormones MUST be strong....lol.

I am sorry that its s gonna be 16days until your beta thats torture. Hope you get your bfp so that it will be all worth it.
Hoping this will be your month . Try to keep yourself busy. BTW how was your weekend in Amsterdam? We never got the details!!!!!!!
When do you get to test? So glad to have you around again, honestly.
I know what you mean by saying you feel unlucky (i think it was in your other post). My situation may be different i don t know if you remember but thats how i feel sometimes.My mom actually feels bad that she must have done something wrong in my upbringing that caused my medical issues. However i am sure that some day the tables will turn and we will be the lucky ones. Praying hard that this day is around the corner for you. Hold on
Eurokelly... hoping that this natural cycle will do it for you! The acupuncture is a good thing too and I got my fingers crossed that it helps you out!
Sue - I know you just had your transfer and I really hope that your embabies are all snuggled in for a long stay. Sounds like you've got a while till beta... hope that somehow it'll pass quick for you! Good luck sweetie!
Kathy, you already know how much I really want this IUI to surprise you with a fabulous BFP, but I am going to keep telling you!!! Your strength and determination will pay off and I pray that it happens at the conclusion of this 2WW!!!
Hi Ruby , Hi Amy ... have spoken to you gals in a little while so just wanted to drop a line and say hello. Hope you both are doing well.
Thanks for the message! It does seem like ages since we last chatted doesn't it! I have been checking the boards every day though, I just haven't posted much lately.
I am fine, I have finished my first round of clomid and will be embarking on some serious baby dancing over the next 12 days or so. At least it should provide us with some good entertainment as we are trying hard to save up for my lap so our social life is rather quiet at the moment. Anyhow, enough about me, how are you? I read in one of your posts that it is already getting hot in Arizona - you are lucky, it is starting to get really cold here now and has even been snowing down South! Well, hopefully the summer months will bring you some luck!
I am so disappointed for CBB, I missed the news yesterday because of the time and I thought and evening and morning that I would be joining a celebratory board this morning. And I can't see Kath's 2nd beta anywhere, did anyone know what happened?
Amy -Amsterdam was a ball despite a pregnant friend and a metformin friend, we went eating,sightseeing on the canals and dancing the night away. I loved it. The only down side was that they both hurried off on Sunday to get back to the UK for their babies and I stayed all afternoon and took a later flight - making the most of my freedom but at the same time it made me really sad that I didn't have a baby to rush home for...
Kathy, so good to hear you are here as well! I truly hope this IUI is the one for you.
Kari, thanks - i have acupuncture this afternoon and said to DH this morning "do you think she can just guide the egg and sperm together and MAKE them stick with her magic needles?" He said she should for the price she charges......horrible man! I am so looking forward to it as I haven't been since before the lap & dye and I have been feeling a little out-of-sorts and I know this will make me feel great.
Ruby, hi how are you doing? How is the clomid? I am so interested as I go for mine in 3 weeks....my sister said she felt so sad all the time she took it, liek a big old tablet of sad hormones, but I think everyone is different? 12 days of BD???? DH would faint if I told him that Actually we were talking this morning and when I take clomid and then go for the shot it falls at the weekend we were next planning on taking a trip to Europe. Do you think it would be bad to fly?
Kari thanks for asking. I should ovulate soon....it s just timed BD for this cycle and maybe the next then we ll see.
I have been following your Summer IVF thread i don t post much since i don t know much about it all yet. Though i ve learnt loads from you guys. I am sure that IVF will do the trick for you and you ll be a mommy soon . And BTW you are not old!!!!!!!!!
Kel i am glad you had a good time in Amsterdam. I am sure that soon it will be you who s got a baby to rush home too.
Hi Kelly (I love your name, my best friend is called Kelly)
I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday and I am sure it must have done you the world of good!
So you start your clomid soon? You should be fine. The biggest problem I have experienced with it is the hot flushes and even they are bearable. I must admit that I was in a right bad mood last week while taking the pills (it felt like really bad PMT) but other than that no problems. The best part of it is that it makes me feel as though I am being pro-active and that I am doing something to help myself. I am hopeful that after I have my lap that I will finally get that elusive BFP.
As for flying, I don't see any problems with that. On the contrary, I think the weekend away will work wonders for you!
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say hello! How are you?
Like you, I also don't post much on the IVF threads but I do enjoy reading them and they have really broadened my knowledge.
Well, I wish you luck with this cycle. You said you are due to ovulate soon so it sounds as though I am not too far behind you. Have you considered using clomid? You said you are doing timed BD this round and I really hope it works for you and you don't have to go down the clomid path.
Take care and I look forward to catching up with you soon!
I am fine thanks for asking. Trying to take things as relaxed as possible.
Since its only been a 1 cycle since my thyroid problem was solved i think i should try out 3 natural cycles before trying anything. This will be my 2nd round. My problem is that probably i ll need to sit a few cycles if this doesn t work. The reason being that i stopped my treatment for my blood condition since it isn t safe while TTC. I ll need to start them again after this cycle.
I suppose that s a bit confusing ............ however i am willing to do all it takes.
You said its starting to snow there ...well i went for a few hours to the beach today.Isn it ironic! I live on a tiny island so just a 15min drive gets you anywhere.
I am sorry about the hot flushes....but i really hope that clomid will do the trick for you. BTW when do you ovulate? I should o around the 14th. Looking forward to have you as a buddy on the 2ww.
Ruby I love your name too! The latest addition to my family is Ruby; a beautiful 9 month old baby for my brother and SIL, we all loved the name it was on my 'list' but of course can't be any more....
It sounds a bit grim about the PMT with clomid, but hopefully the acupuncture will help me with that and any hot flushes etc....eek! Just really agree with you about feeling pro-active. It is a year this month since I last saw a BFP and I am so so so so so so ready to see it again and hold on to it this time!
Amy, I think it is good to just keep trying and staying relaxed...the beach must help with that! I am jealous.....cloudy here in London today.
Just got back from my acupuncture and feel great. It is so amazing how much it helps me emotionally through this, I feel revived and ready for the 2WW now. Have next appointment on 26th and maybe just maybe will be able to report a BFP and have her do 'keep the baby' acupuncture instead of the 'make the baby' acupuncture we do now.....
