    Hi I'm back from seeing specialist.
    This is my plan for the near future should af show up in the next few days. (she's due today) I will wait untill Friday before I test.
    My dr asked me to do a preg test there but as usual I couldn't perform. (thats no surprise) lol. So we came to the conclusion that if af does arrive I will start taking metformin and clomid this cycle. If that doesn't work then we will start IUI inJan/ Feb approx. I have to go and see her again in January. I sooooo hope I get a bfp before I need to do IUI. I am feeling kind of relieved and dissappointed at the same time IYKWIM.

    Smudge Good luck with your appointment today.

    Willow I'll be thinking of you tomorrow hun. Let us know how it all goes when you are feeling up to it

    O Debbie, you poor thing, I can relate to the protecting your children thing!It never goes away. My DS who is 14 and a half, came in from high school the other day mad as heck, because another kid just hit him. Well I flew out the door, and gave him a mouthful!!! I really didnt care at the time, i was just so peeved that another child thinks they have the right to smack someone in the head, "cos they felt like it"... my son had to hold back everything in his 'being' not to smack him back. I was so proud of him, made me think I had actually done something good in raising him... aw hes a great kid...

    Michelle my love, I hope the scan goes well, and its just a little nothing bleed. My thought and prayers are with you at this time.
    hi to everyone else, loads of things happening this week hey!
    Me, cd12, you would honestly think I was ovulating, thin stretchy clear(sorry TMI)cm, but nothing on my opk. Can this happen, do you get this way b4. I normally 'O' on cd14-15, well get a positive anyway.. so am a little confused, but very glad im doing the opk, hope I didnt start to late. Started on cd11. Havnt BD yet, sooooo maybe betta get a riggle on.

    Chelle - good for you. And you do so have a right to feel proud of your son. Well done to him. The irritating thing was that my son was over it all very quickly as is his way. You know, he's the "cried, sorted it out, they apologised, so all forgotten now" type. Unfortunately on e of the boys I spoke to was crying a little so obviously still upset. He is the can dish it out but can't take it type. I know his mum and to make matters worse she has just divorced this year so I know she is having it tough on her own. But you can't keep making excuses for kids all the time especially if you know they know right from wrong!
    I just hate having cross words with anyone. I always cry when I'm mad which sometimes makes me even madder. I'd love to have a good argument one day with out looking through teary eyes. Actually, no, I can live without the arguments really. Life is too short for that kind of pain.

    Better let you go. As you said, "you'd better get a riggle on" so I don't want to keep you from it!!!!

    Hugs Debbie

    Thank you so much girls for your words of support. *alf* is thankfully fine - his mother on the other hand is having serious meltdown issues and is suffering from exhaustion from the multiple trips to the loo and from lack of sleep.

    *alf* has a HR of 174 and was bouncing around happily, measuring exactly what he should for dates. I am so relieved that I have come home from work (I know, Deb has already smacked me for going in the first place but I needed to get the scan and I have contacts if I go to work). Now I need a nana nap to get me through the rest of the day.

    BBL to chat but Mako - the appointment sounds positive!!

    Hi ladies.

    Mako- I hope AF stays away for you and you get your BFP. Keep us all updated.

    Michelle- I am so glad that ALF is well. You have a good rest.

    Willow-Good luck tomorrow .

    BW- Hope that temp stays up and you did O. Have everything crossed.

    As for me today I am feeling a little crapy. Seems like everyone else around me is falling PG really easily and we seem to be having so much trouble . I am going for another scan on Wed morning to see if these injections have started to do anything. Not feeling really confident though. I am on a really low dose because she is worried that after my ovaries not doing anything for a while that suddenly they will explode and I will have too many follies. But because it is low I don't really feel like it will do too much. Anyway I am rambling. I hope everyone is well.

    Hi Girls, thanks to everyone for your words of support. Have had a horrid, horrid 2 days (dramas with IL's - for those that have access to the LTTTC & AC vent forum, I've posted in there) and have been an emotional wreck. Have been crying for what seems like 2 days straight and I am just exhausted. Definately not the ideal lead up to tomorrow.

    I am home alone now and have just taken my first lot of 'bowel prep' (noice) so am just going to try to relax, have a nice long shower and wait for the storm to hit! hehehe.

    Debbie, your post made me cry. Please say a big prayer for me tomorrow girls, I am sure that if I concentrate hard enough I will feel your support right there in that room with me. I am so scared.

    Michelle - I am sooooooo happy that your scan went well and you can now let out a huge sigh of relief!

    Afternoon ladies

    My FS couldn't find my left ovary!! What the? Anyways, my right one didn't have any follicles so I am booked in again Wed for an abdominal ultrasound. Let's hope they have more luck locating the awol ovary...Fortunately I do know that I have 2. lol. Does anyone know if this is common? We took it in our stride really, we were on such a wee dose I'd figured there wouldn't be much action first up. Plus, Wed is only a day away. FS said this may also give any possible follies time to mature. Failing this, she said she would up my dose and we would see how we went with that...

    One thing I am a little concerned about though, my temp took a dive this morning coupled with a faint opk last night and we aren't allowed to BD! (risk of multiples) Two years of no coverline or response on opk - it just doesn't feel right! If I do ovulate (my luck) today and have my scan Wed morning - will this be too late to catch the eggy if there are follies?

    Mako - my fingers are crossed you get two lines! Stay away witch! I can kind of understand your feeling with being on the clomid and feeling same ol same ol. I feel like that already. Heaven knows what I'll be feeling like in a couple of months. You never know, should AF arrive Met might just be the perfect combo with the clomid for you. Keep your chin up for a few more days.

    Michelle - that is a fantastic result for you. Enjoy your nap, sounds like you could do with a little extra rest.

    ktgirl - we're both in for scans on Wed. I have the same attitude as you with the low dose. You may be pleasantly surprised! I can sympathise with you mentioning everyone else falling preg. It's the pits, I know. The drugs wouldn't be helping you and your emotions right now either. Your turn will come. Good luck for the scan.

    Willow - I hope your bowels are being nice to you!

    Michelle, I'm so relieved that Alf is ok!

    My day didn't get any better after waking up grumpy... My school finally remembered that they are supposed to be observing me, so now I'm a little panicked and stressed... not feeling over-medicated any more!!

    Willow my sweet you can rest assured we are all going to be with you tomorrow in spirit...
    I am sorry to hear you have had such a distressing few days. Families can be really hard work. I have the mother in law from a distant planet so I understand some how difficult it can be.
    Try to put it all in another place in your mind and focus on getting through today and tomorrow... You will be fine and I look forward to hearing wonderful things.

    Debbie - We are all lionesses when it comes to our kids - I understand... :hugs:

    Chelle - Good to *see* you!

    Michelle - well you know how I feel about the wonderful news on Alf.. Rest and destress. Can you get a nice relaxing massage.

    I am feeling quite crampy today like I do before my period and I have sore boobs (ouch!) so I am thinking that my period will be here soon. I got a positive opk last Monday so I know it's only been about 6 days since ovulation. I have got my packet of clomid ready to go on cd2 whenever that is!

    Hey smudge. Good luck for Wed I will keep an eye out for you to see how you go. Hopefully they will find your left ovary and see a nice big follie there waiting for you. What time are you going for your scan. Mine is really early luckily so I don't have to wait too long to find out what is happening in there. Keep me updated.

    Michelle, I am soooooooo pleased that "alf" is doing great. I hope you had a good nana nap and please be easy on yourself. Remember take baby steps,one day at a time

    Smudge, Thankyou for your thoughts.I am really hoping af stays away. Good luck with the scan on Wednesday. I'm sure they'll find your awol ovary. Our bodies sure do some strange things at times don't they???

    Ktgirl, Thanks hun. I understand what you mean about everyone falling preg around you. It is such a stressful time but remember you will have a little bubba in your arms soon too. Keep your chin up sweet

    Chelle66 thanks also to you. I feel so much better knowing that there are other avenues to explore should we need to. Sometimes I think we loose perspective on where we are headed and we need to be reassured at times and I think thats what I needed today.

    Flowerchild, I really hope af stays away from your house too.

    A big hello to everyone I've missed at this time. I hope you are all ok.

    Willow,
    Just checking on how you are going??? Thinking of you...

    Hey Deb. I am OK. A lot calmer tonight. I think just being left alone has helped immensely. Trying to put everything else out of my mind but it's a bit difficult. Will just get through the next few days and deal with the ILs later.

    Bowel prep hasn't been too bad at all, more annoying than anything cause I'm kinda ready for bed.

    Have to be at the hospital at 12pm for an afternoon surgery. Going by last experience, I am preparing to stay overnight. With an afternoon procedure I don't think I'll be well enough to come home tomorrow night, particularly because it's a long drive.

    I will let you all know how it went as soon as I am well enough.

    Willow, you'll certainly be in my thoughts and prayers tomorrow. I really hope that you get some good news after the surgery. You really deserve it.
