Too Annoyed to Think of a Witty Title

I am seriously annoyed with my body right now. Who the heck ovulates three days after the first positive OPK!?!?! Me apparently.

All of my symptoms except CP & CM indicated that I ovulated on Thursday (OPK, fertility monitor, & O pain) but my temps didn’t go up until this morning. That makes my last IUI around 40 hours before ovulation; I want to cry. Everyone says the sperm can only live 12-24 hours which mean no September baby for me. =-(
On to October I guess.

I know, I know…there is always a chance…I know that. But I can’t keep my hopes up for this one – particularly because it now looks as if my timing last time was perfect and, as we all know, I am not currently “with child”.

I am starting to think I am just not cut out for this stuff. Adoption is starting to look really, really good right about now. At least with adoption I KNOW that I am going to end up with a baby for all of my efforts, with this who knows?! I could be throwing my money away on nothing.

I did call the DR and I have an appointment on December 28th to schedule my HSG & blood work. Right now I am trying to decide if I want to try one more time in January now that I better understand when I ovulate OR if I want to take the month off to have the tests run. I can’t afford to do both in one month (plus I don’t know if you can TTC & do the HSG in the same month??). On the one hand it would be cathartic to “know” for the New Year if I am fertile or not BUT, on the other, it would be even better to get pregnant without ever having shell out the cash for those tests. ::sigh:: I dunno.

In other news: Finals are done!!! Yay! This was my worst quarter since starting University 2 years ago. LOL, I am terrified of what my grades are going to be…I had no idea how hard it was going to be to continue to focus on school while also obsessing on TTC. Good thing I am almost done. I start my last “real” batch of classes in January, finish those in March and then I only have one class left to take before I graduate in June.

Also, Hubby and I did IUI at home this cycle. I’ll blog all about it another day – but I do want to say that while it is not the right decision for everyone AND you essentially have to be understanding of and willing to accept the risk involved – it CAN be done. It was actually shockingly easy.

    I responded to your question on the board, so I won’t bore you with more of my opinions on this month :). Just keep the hope! I think you’re okay!

    Yes, you can do an HSG and TTC the same cycle. I’m doing that this cycle, so it can be done.

    Congrats on the end of the finals!! Woohoo!!

    Hey girl keep positive – you should be just fine! In fact you want to have the little guys in there BEFORE you ovulate, otherwise they won’t have the time to swim where they need to go before the egg moves on through, or the spermies die.

    Anywho, IMHO I would just say you get a girl baby out of the deal instead of the chances of a boy.

    Here’s to a BFP in a couple of weeks!!!!!

    Hopefully this will still all work out. I know of one person on the board who AI’d quite a bit to early and it worked for her. That said I think in all the times I AI’d at home I was doing it too early. The first month with the doctor it drove me nuts waiting until 36 hours after the trigger shot but that was when I very briefly had a positive hpt. Hang in there.

    The HCG (the dye thing right?) will ‘clean’ your tubes for the next 3 months or so.

    It is really hard to time everything correctly. I keep getting worried about it too.

    I believe that the dip in your chart can occur if you were sleeping with your mouth open. (I don’t know if you took that into account…) Maybe it’s better if you take your time, it will be too stressful otherwise. Good luck, I know that making decisions is the hardest part of all…

    Er, I thought sperm could live up to 3 days in the uterus?

    Frozen sperm don’t live as long as fresh (they only live about 12-24 hours, generally). BUT there are some that think that that is only for ICI or IVI and that when placed directly into the uterus they can live longer…so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for that. =)

    I know what you mean about the ovulation thing, look at my cycle last month, it decided after all these years to throw me through a loop. I’m not going to do a December cycle I think. I would get the tests done, then you know where you stand. Good luck with the cycle even though it doesn’t feel like its going to work, who knows really?
