I wish I liked someone other than this RE because I can already tell the four hours driving each way is going to get old.
Wow you drive 4 hours for your RE!! That's gotta be tough

Big hugs to you. Waiting is very frustrating.

Not really a useful post, I know, just needed to share with someone(s) who would understand.
Ah, the innocence. I was there once. It's such a shame that IF takes the joy from us.

That's got to be tough being around your sister. Does she acknowledge your pain? It must be very difficult to have that constant reminder of your loss. I still find myself checking in on the due date groups I was/would have been apart of. Such torture!


AFM: I think I'm close to Oing, so we've been BDing every other day, even though my OB said I should wait it out until I get checked out by the RE. My appt. is on the 15th.
I've finally shared my IF story with my church choir (a group I'm really close with). Every week we sing song's about God's grace and faithfulness, things that I need to hear often when walking a tough road. It was really great to have the support of my church family. They walked me through IF before my son was born, but I've kept my year of m/c's on the downlow this time around. So it was nice to get it all out and receive lots of love in return.

Re: Blessed with Children Struggling for More, Week of Aug. 29th

Hugs everyone! Seems like it has been a tough week. I think we all have those times when we are in a funk and it is hard!

AFM- I am really confused with these OPKs. I think that they are starting to get darker but I am not a good super squinter. My temp has been up the last couple days. On friday, I had a couple of drinks so I thought that might be a false high temp but then this morning it was the same higher temp. CM is creamy and a tiny bit EWCM but I usually have a bunch of CM so I dont really rely on that.

Question- What does O pain feel like? I dont ovulate much on my own so I have no experience with it. I ask because all day I have had a pain in my right lover abdomen, right where I think my ovary is.. I have PCOS and have had cyst so I am pretty sure this is the same spot. I am wondering if it is O or if my ovaries are hyperstimulated because of the clomid? It has been hurting all day and varies between light and really painful. Gonna OPK again before bed and BD again with DH, just in case.

I hear you. If I can manage to conceive and carry long enough for it to matter, I don't plan to tell anyone (except for you ladies, and a very few friends I have as prayer partners) until it's blatantly obvious on its own. No one could tell for sure that I was pg with my son until I was 7 1/2 months, anyway, so that should be pretty far along.

For me, it's one-sided like that, and varies between a sharp 'ow, cramp!' and a generalized achiness, sort of like menstrual cramps but one-sided. I wouldn't worry about hyperstimulation being the cause if it recedes within 24 hours of when you first felt it, but if it doesn't, you can go in for an US to be sure. In the meantime, a warm bath sometimes helps. And it can't hurt to BD, regardless Good luck!

Thanks for all the hugs, ladies I knew I could count on this group to understand.
