Just got the call..

Beta at 12dpIUI = 33.1

Progesterone = 16.8

Both seem pretty low to me. My lovely friends from the TTTC board on the nest said its fine and I shouldn’t be worried, but how do you …

Clear Blue Easy Digital Says….


clear blue easy digital HPT

Its so nice to see that word.. no lines to interpret, just that one little word. How can it contain such joy? And such fear?

Needless to say I didn’t sleep at all last night.. Poor Jeff, I kept …

I think…maybe.. I saw a line???

Yes, I am only 11dpIUI, 10dp ovulation if I ovulated late which I think I did.. and I shouldn’t be testing this early, but I couldn’t help it. The $1 dollar tree pregnancy tests are so cheap I have hard …

10dpIUI – The Wait is Almost Over

For example, I have quit smoking (even socially) drinking, diet coke and cut back to …

CD 15 – we have a temperature rise!

I woke up this morning and THANK GOD my temps were finally up, 98.11 to be exact. Not really that high, but high enough to be a clear thermal shift meaning that I DID ovulate.. I just wonder when.

Unfortunately …

CD 14, where is my O?

Because things couldn’t possibly just go smoothly, I woke up this morning the day following my IUI expecting my BBT (basal body temperature) to be well above 98, which it always is after ovulation. But no, my temperature has DROPPED …

CD 13, IUI

Today was our second IUI. As usual, I was expected to be in the office early with Jeff’s “sample.”

Because the Westchester branch of my clinic is closed on the weekends, I had to once again go into NYC for …
