Wordpress Blog /TTC Update/Trips

I have some new followers that use wordpress. Please be patient with me as I have visited your blogs and actually went to comment, but I'm having technical difficulties. I  tried to set up a new wordpress blog about a month ago and couldn't figure it out. Now every time I want to leave a comment on one of these blogs, it requires me to log in on my wordpress and I keep losing my password. I will get all of this straightened out, but want you ladies to know that I am indeed reading your blogs.


TTC News:

Nothing major going on. Today is CD6 and I can proudly say I haven't temped so far for this cycle. It is going hand and hand with all the other things I have given up on for our quest to procreate.  I have 3 months still paid up on FF so I might start temping around ovulation. I go in tomorrow for our CD7 u/s and b/w. Since our last crazy stim cycle with Follistim, the doctor cut my dose from 150 IU to 100IU in hopes my ovaries won't think we are having an IVF cycle without the funding to do so :) Fingers crossed I only produce about 4-6 nice plump follicles this month. Even though we are near the end of our reproducing phase, I still plan on doing my treatments every month until it is time to quit. I still plan on doing my lovenox injections, predisone, metformin, stims, IVIG and IUI or TI. I was looking through all my meds and I believe I have enough until the end of this year. Instead of a little chipmunk stockpiling nuts for the winter, I am the crazy infertility lady that stockpiles months and months of synthetic hormones :)

Trips: 

Before I forget, I have been planning on of our trips for the year. I found a great hotel in downtown Dallas for our 4 year anniversary April 25th. I will also share more details when I get things totally locked in, but our Colorado trip in May is looking amazing. I found a resort/spa that has 23 hot springs on the property. They are all different sizes and temps. Plus it is located right near a river that has the run off from mountains. If you get to hot, you can go jump in for a quick swim. I know we are planning on some white water rafting, visiting Rocky Mountain National Park, Blackhawk casino resort and some other things still in the works. We also have a Christmas trip planned to New York. This is mainly an early graduation present for my daughter. I am really looking forward to our traveling this year.

  1. Yay for not temping!! Honestly, that was the thing that drove me the most crazy with the whole TTC process. I still twitch when I hear a thermometer beep.

    Your trips sound amazing! Looking forward to the reports and the pictures.

    1. I have no idea why I was doing it at all. I ovulate every month. I thought I would be able to tell earlier if I was pregnant, but I don't think it works like that.

  2. I'm pulling for you girl!! We managed to pull off an IVF cycle for under $10,000 (we even traveled to the clinic out of state!) Just say the word and I will send you the info.. They are kind of amazing.. They are really reasonable and their FETs are less than $1500... Just throwing that out there. I am gonna be reading and checking and praying your baby is on the way soon!! <3 <3

    1. Thank you for the information, but we are officially done with ivf. Just can't justify spending another dime in it. Although that is great price! To bad I didn't know you when we first started!
