    Awww thanks Lynn and Nat for checking on me

    Well I had a fantastic u/sound!!!!!! I have 2 follies on my left ovary measuring 22mms and 21mms and a third on my right ovary measuring 19mms (and another at 14.5mms - this one we don't expect is going to go anywhere as it's lagging behind the others.)

    Follicles usually erupt anywhere from about 18mm upward. Going by the size and my past history I am assuming I will ovulate around Thursday or Friday. In the past I haven't had such large follies at cd12 so my response to the increase in clomid has been great. Last cd12 follie u/s showed follies of around 11 and 14cms so this is looking great this time! I just might ovulate on that magic cd14 this month hey!!!!!! WOO HOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! The plan is if I don't get a positive opk by Thursday afternoon I will have another u/sound on Friday and probably a trigger shot. This is to make sure that that 14.5cm follie hasn't had a growth spurt! The chances of three follicles containing 3 viable eggs at my age are quite low so we are going to go for it! Of course there is that little fear that what if I get triplets but I have been assured by literature and opinion that it is unlikely. As you all know twins would be just so wonderful, but an added risk to an already risky pregnancy. However, if there are two healthy eggs there that are fertilised then I will be a very happy Mama indeed! So send all your vibes this way for the next few days!!!! I am so excited that the increase in clomid worked out. I was quite concerned that it wouldn't. My endometrium is looking wonderful at 9mms also which is all good. As you clomid ladies will know the endometrium can be thinned by the drug and this is a side effect that decreases pregnancy rate. Anything above about 6cms is optimal for conception.
    Now, I just have to pee on sticks until I get that positive and then get jiggy with it!!!!!

    Thankyou again for thinking of me - it's so nice to be able to share with women who truly understand. Now, some of that for all of us that need a this month. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all graduate by the end of this month!!!!?????

    Deb - LMAO at your post to my period! I cried but it was a happy cry. Thank you I needed it after today (not a good day today in Lynnland).
    I am soooooooooooooooooo excited that your follies are doing what they should be doing! They are nice and big which is excellent! I didn't know that the endometrium can be thinned on Clomid. Mine was 9.8mm last cycle which I was told was great, so you have just confirmed that - thanks! Pity about the stupid follies not doing anything. I am sending you so many vibes that they could fill your house!! Now go and pee on those sticks and get busy girl And send me some *big, ripe follies* vibes.

    Nat - yeah I have taken the pill to bring on AF - not much good it is doing at the moment I am told that it should arrive within a week after the last pill - well the witch has 2 days to get her ar%e here!! I don't think I have ever hated someone as much as I hate the witch. She just annoys me sooooooooooo much!!!

    Oh BTW I get the nutcase award for this month - AF hadn't arrived this morning but I thought I was having cramps and then I thought my (.)(.) were sore so I did a HPT. I so knew it was going to be negative but I have so many of them and didn't get to use them this cycle so I thought why not use one. As if I was going to get a positive - I didn't even o this month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Send the straight jacket to my place....................

    Hey my sweetie-pies

    Well I have had an insane day at work. [email protected]#t hit the fan and I have been dealing with lawyers from all levels of government all day. Only just got home and I haven't even had a shower yet, had to chat to my girls first. I told my boss that I was going to quit and become a hairdresser, luckily he has a good sense of humour and I am still employed (lol) so just excuse me if my posts make no sense, someone has stolen my brain today.

    Chelle: a BFP is awesome news. I know what it feels like when something is too good to be true, but a line is a line. Test tomorrow and see if it is getting stronger. Sounds like it is time to book in with your doctor babe. How exciting.

    Lynn: Come on Lynn's AF, you can do it. Deb sounds like a period cheerleader, I was LMAO when I read her post. But on a serious note, I hope the cow rears her head soon and that you can start those injections. Oh BTW, I think we should see if we can get a buy in bulk and save deal on straight jackets.

    Deb: with your scan. That is wonderful news that your girls are responding to the increased dose of clomid. I hope so badly that you graduate this month. You may even be the first to graduate with twins go get your groove on girl.

    Mel: Hey babe, that is great news about the house. With the fees, they usually increase on a quarterly basis, but there is nothing to stop you asking them to guarantee the fees for say the next 3 months. It is worth a try. They may require you to pay a small deposit, but you can make it conditional upon you getting the loan and land title. So if the deal falls through you get your deposit back. Worth looking into, it would depend on the builder. It may just save you a few grand. Love to see the plans when you get a chance to send them.

    Nat: LMAO about my MIL getting the B&#%H of the year award. I might do her up a certificate and send it to her on mothers day. Only kidding, that is just nasty but I think that I am allowed to be a bit nasty for once. How are you going today, I love the Bree image, I used to love entertaining, hopefully I will again one day. I think the table cloth and flowers stand you in great stead for the DIL of the century award.

    JLK: I am thinking of you and your dear sweet angel Storm tomorrow. Take care of yourself honey. We are all here for you.

    Klee: Swings in mood is such a common thing. I know I am continually saying that what you are going through is normal, but you should have heard about some of the absolute dramas I got myself into in the first few months. If you have read about my MIL you will see that it is still happening. I think the best way I can explain it is that my threashold for stress is now almost non-existant. I am sure your mum and your sister will understand why you are being a bit angrier than usual. Just tell them that you love them and then forgive youself. I want to reach out and give you a big cuddle. You will be ok babe, keep posting because it is nice to hear from you and we all want to help take care of you.

    To everyone else, big love. I am on the count down for my 19 week scan. It is on Tuesday the 24 so 2 weeks today. It is a major milestone for me. That is when we found out that Harry wasn't well and I had an amniocentesis. Although I hate being so busy at work, it means that my mind doesn't get a chance to wander so much. I am with you Deb, the power of positive thought is not to be underestimated so I am repeating to myself that Lil' Spring will be great and that I will birth an earth child.

    Oh well, time for a shower and I'll see if I can pop in before bedtime.

    Big love
    Spring

    Hey there girls!

    Chelle - I knew it!!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS - I understand you are scared, I am sure that the initial joy of the BFP quickly turns into fear and worry but still allow yourself to enjoy the miracle that is happening.

    Deb - Thats fantastic you had such a great ultrasound, I am sending as many vibes as I can and with results like that surely we will be getting some good news from you in a couple of weeks time. I agree with you on the twins, I think it would be wonderful.

    Lynn - I am sorry you arent having a good day, I cant imagine how frustrating it is that AF is behaving like this. I know how frustrated I am let alone putting up with that as well. If you need to vent you know where I am and your call is welcome anytime you need to chat

    Jo - :hugs: to you for Storm's 3 month birthday tomorrow. You will be in my thoughts.

    Klee - Dont be too hard on yourself about your nephew, he is so young he wont even realise what happened. I think it is totally normal that you react in ways you usually wouldnt. I have 3 stepchildren and to be perfectly honest I was starting to be really mean to them, especially the youngest one, until my sister sat me down and told me that I need to change because it is not their fault. You wouldnt believe the things I have said and thoughts I have had, but we are hurting so much and I think we need to be forgiven for mistakes we make.

    Nat - Thanks for the babydust, I will definitely need it. Hoping you are well, and enjoying your holidays with DS.

    Well as for me the only thing I have to say is that I have decided we are going to DTD every second night until O time which is meant to be Saturday and possibly do it every night from Friday to Tuesday and then every second night again for another few days. Do you guys think that is enough to get UTD? Sorry I know this is really TMI but I really want (and need) to get it right this month. Does anyone think there is any benefit in doing it like morning and night? I would be so over sex by the end but if it got me pregnant I would do whatever it takes. BTW I spoke about this to DH, needless to say he is in his element Oh and also does anyone know if you can do it "too much" during O time? I just keep wondering if maybe we are doing not enough or too much iykwim.

    Anyway, have a good night.

    Mel

    P.S. Spring and Lynn I am just about to send you guys an email now about the house.

    Hey Spring,

    I missed your post until after I posted. WOW I cannot believe your 19 week scan is so close... lil Spring is gonna be just fine, I can understand you are worried but honestly I think there is nothing to be concerned about HE/she is growing beautifully and will continue to do so until you are changing pooey nappies and wiping chuck up from your shoulder

    Love Mel

    Hey Mel: I could be wrong, but I think it is possible to DTD too much (sorry DH). I think that the sperm needs time to regenerate and that if you DTD too often, it affects the quality or concentration. I could be completely off the track with this one, perhaps someone like Deb or Nat might be able to shed some light on it.

    Luv Spring

    Thanks Spring, yeah I had a feeling that was the case too... but what is considered too much or too little? I just want to do exactly the right thing. I was wrong by the way I think I am due to O on Sunday. The O calculator tells me we should start DTD on Friday through to mid week the following week but yet I remember when I was at the dr (you know the one who was giving me tips on positions ) he told me we should NOT DTD for a couple of days before my O day for the same reason as you just said. How do we know the right thing to do? Especially when the results show DH has 90% poor quality sperm, how do we get it right? Aaaaargh

    Hey Mel, I think you only need to DTD every second day. Are you charting? Do you know when you def are ovulating?

    Can you ring the people who tested the sperm and ask them given DH's results, what would be the best time to DTD? It may be a case for some people it should be as much as possible and for other people it should be every 2nd day.

    It is hard to know, but I don't think doing it morning and night would be necessary and may be counter productive.

    But then again I have no idea really and I am just going on what I have read previously.

    I am not sure if they know, I guess I could ring my OB and ask his advice - not that he is a sexual councellor or anything - the other thing I read is that tests can vary on different occasions and I really think it would be worth getting DH to do another sample to confirm that the results were correct but he says it was bad enough doing it the first time he is not doing it again... Men can be such babies sometimes!

    But anyway, I might give OB a call on my lunch break one day this week. I wish I could stop stressing about this but its practically impossible.

    Oh and no I am not charting, I dont really know how to except with OPKs and I dont have any left and didnt buy any. I guess I could always buy some from supermarket unless you have any other ideas.

    Thanks girls

    Hey mel, yep I agree with the others, every second day is enough, but I always make sure when I get my POPK, I do it that day regardless if I did it the day B4... I normally O on day14, I actually start cd12 and every 2nd day till at least 18. My specialist said every2nd day, and if I o'd cd14,do it 12,14,16...if I O'd 16, do it 14,16,18 etc...I was like is that it??? he said yes, no need for any more... Goodluck for that BFP..

    Hope everyone else is doing ok. Im alittle better. Im in a positive head space of enjoy it,its destiny. You wouldnt believe my due date same as master 3yr old birthday, 12 Dec !! hope this is a positive sign..I lost a most precious angel that was due 4th dec 2 yrs ago, Its like it has come around full swing with alot of angels in between. I hope the big boss from upstairs dusnt want anymore.
    Take care everyone,big day ahead, have to finish painting our big huge fence!! lucky its the holidays, should get plenty of helpers..

    Hi all!

    Chelle - Huge Congrats on the BFP

    Lynne - My angels name is Storm Piper, I didn't realise I hadn't told you all her name

    well today is Storms 3 month birhtday, it so feels like it was just yesterday.
    I think I might wander down to the cemetary with some flowers!

    Jo - Big :hugs: to you today for Storm's birthday. That is a beautiful idea to take some flowers to the cemetary for her. I hope you get through the day as ok as possible.

    Chelle - I am so glad you are feeling better today, enjoy growing your bubba you deserve to I might follow your drs advice and go with the every 2nd day, I guess especially if DH has 90% poor quality we want to save the good quality ones up.

    I did tell DH we would take the pressure off this month pretty much to make him feel a bit better about the results cause he is obviously feeling a little down about it and also cause I am not overly confident this month, but I mentioned to him last night I would like to buy some OPKs from supermarket and not be too strict on DTD this month except for the day I O, and he said that isnt taking the pressure off so he thinks we should just leave it to chance. But I was thinking maybe I will get them anyway and maybe not tell him - does anyone think that is really wrong? Like I dont want to lie to him so if it is classed as lying I dont think I could do it. If it was a case of what he doesnt know wont hurt him then it would be ok iykwim. I also mentioned that it might be worth having another SA done and he wasnt keen so he said check what the OB thinks and if he thinks we should he will but otherwise no he is not gonna do it just for the hell of it (I cant really argue with that can I). But I think he is keen to wait until we see the FS on 15th May until we do anymore tests and things cause he says it is only 1 more month and basically see how we go this month and start taking action after that appointment. What do you girls think? Do you think he is right and just to ride it out until May?

    Anyway, I guess you will have noticed I am not at work... I went to dr this morning cause I have UTI - so now I am on antibiotics and going to the toilet every 5 mins to do nothing but a trickle She said that I probably have it because I am a bit run down, the cold I just had being proof of that. But oh well I will live, and I should start feeling a bit better by the end of tonight and I will be back at work tomorrow.

    Lynn - I hope you are feeling a bit better today

    Oh well dont know if anyone will be around today, if not have a lovely day.

    Love Mel

    P.S. Can any of you girls recommend a good OPK that you can get from the supermarket? Hopefully one that will give me a positive on the actual day I O although I am not sure if that is possible. The only ones I have ever used are the ones from the website Spring recommended to me ages ago but if I order those now I wont get them in time. Basically I just want something reliable. Thanks
