Good luck tomorrow Susan! :good vibes:

Carissa, Here is hoping you are having implantation! Can you feel anything? I felt implantation with my son.

Question - How do you deal with temper tantrums with your children when cycling? My son had a TOTAL meltdown today at the farm (we belong to a CSA) and I realized in a few weeks/months I will not be able to physically manhandle him into his seat, car or wherever. Do you just give in to bribes? Do you plan to bribe for 9 months? I realized that I need to figure this out now before I cycle! My son is around 42 lbs, so I can barely lift him on my good days, let alone when he is tantruming! PLEASE give me ideas!!!

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of June 4th

Liesl-awesome news!!!!!! Congrats and sticky thoughts!

Susan-prayers that it is indeed a slow riser or started out as a multiple pregnancy.

Carissa-we're only days apart. I'm 8dpo today.

Jennifer-well the answer to your question is you just deal. DS was 15m and VERY tall for his age (IIRC he was 30lbs?) when we did the IVF that gave us DD (my kids are exactly 2 years apart-LOL in fact my EDDs were only 2 days apart!). During the pregnancy he kicked me into my belly SO MANY TIMES. Obviously DD was fine. The babies are better protected than this being an issue or humanity would have been extinct long ago :P So just do what you'd normally do during a tantrum though I have to say finding ways to deal with them in a non physical way is a life saver later on. I would get down to his level and try to get him to listen-often gently blowing air into his face because that is quite effective at getting his attention even through a tantrum. And plan on extra time if at all possible to just let the tantrum pass (which I realize isn't always possible-time wise and from the duration of a tantrum too-my kids can both tantrum for hours!). I think the harder thing was my own mood swings while dealing with an irrational toddler.

AFM-well I haven't tested yet (only 8dpo so realistically too early) but I am nauseous and for me that's a 100% sure pregnancy sign. Everything else can be med related (tiredness, sore bbs etc) but every time I've been pregnant I was nauseous before I ever tested BFP. With DS which started as a twin pregnancy I started puking at 11dpo so we'll see how this goes...

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of June 4th

Little worried here. My body is finally seeming like it is responding to the drugs. I was feeling so optimistic this month. Now dh is sick. Like beyond sick, has calls into all of his specialists and is talking about making me take him to the ER. He's bleeding internally again. The problem with ER is we know they'll give him steroid infusions which will again kill everything causing us to have to wait another 3-6 months until things pick up again. Why does this happen every time it feels like we're getting close. I want dh to get the meds he needs and to feel better, but I also don't want to be stuck taking meds that make me sick and moody and emotional when there's no point any way. His GI dr. has called him in a med that he said will effect the sperm somewhat but not like the other drugs he's been on. But he's trying so hard to hold out and not take it. But it's a darned if you do darned if you don't, it won't work anyway if he's in this kind of pain, and it also won't work if he takes drugs that bring his count down more than they already are. If he can just keep things together for another week I should have O-ed based on all the signs. But last night he was up in major pain most of the night. I'm just really struggling with what I feel right now. I want him better and I want a shot at a baby all at the same time, why do they always have to be one or the other? Sorry ladies just need a place to vent and share my fears as dh takes it as some kind of personal attack on him if I try to talk to him about it. So I just have to watch him be in pain and cry when he's not around.

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of June 4th

ingrid5699 - Thanks for your words of wisdom. I talked to DH last night and he didn't seem to be of any help on the situation. I think I will just have to figure things out as they happen and try not to get into any situations where I can't get someone to help me. Waiting for the tantrum to pass isn't always an option. After I got DS into his carseat he screamed for 15-20 minutes on the way home that was on top of the 10-15 minutes that he was screaming before I could get him in his seat. We do normally have extra time whenever we go somewhere though so that is good.

Glad your getting your positive pregnancy signs!

lalakiwi7 - Congratulations!! I can't wait to hear your next beta! Oh and I am not new to this group. I started this group years ago before I got diagnosed with my cancer... I just couldn't stick around when I had such a long wait myself.

slimy72 - I am sorry! I hope the cards fall into place soon for you. Can you freeze his sperm so you can try in the interim?
