    Sorry about AF, Rachel. Hope the next cycle brings you a beautiful BFP!

    AFM, went to the RE and they confirmed that what I'm having right now was AF (which is what I said from the beginning), so I start Clomid today and then Follitism on Friday. My IUI nurse was annoyed that no one told her we were doing a combo cycle (she didn't order my meds) so she gave me her last sample for free She saved us almost $400!

    Cait - welcome back! I love the pics, it looks like you two had a fun and much needed vacation! Nothing better for ttc than relaxing and getting your mind off things

    I feel like my heart is being torn out of my chest right now.... I am at work (mental health section of a hospital), and there was a mother admitted to the inpatient unit and her beautiful baby girl (less than a year old) could not be on the unit with her. She has not been following the doctor's instructions, and we (my coworkers and I) took care of this little girl. We changed her, put her in clean clothes (she smelled like urine), and tried to feed her from a bottle (but she was previously breast fed). We cared for her for about 2 hours until the father was able to come and pick her up.
    She was sooo sweet and cute. Why is it that people who can't care for their children have so many (this lady had at least 4 kids) and those who would pay just about any price cannot have any!?!?
    What I wouldn't do to have a child of my own....

    I am so sorry Lizzie, I ask myself that every day as well. My mom does foster care and has a 7mth old and 3yr old and they have 8 other siblings from someone in her mid thirties and she can't afford any of them and they will never get their kids back due to drugs and physical abuse. 10kids total when they don't deserve even one child.

    So heartbreaking! My brother-in-law's sister...cousin-in-law?? My friend did foster care for a year and one time they had ten kids! I just can't imagine so many kids missing out on all the love they deserve.

    I so wanted to take this little girl home, she was so cute and adorable, but seeing as kidnapping is a crime and I wouldn't be able to pass her off as a biological child of me or my DH, I didn't.
    2 weeks until DH has his surgery and we find out if DH will be the biological father of our kids.

    AF is still MIA but thinking tomorrow morning based on when she arrived last month. I'm hoping she is here tomorrow morning because I called my OB today and told them AF had started and then they surprised me and said I have to come in tomorrow. I wasn't supposed to have to go in every cycle but my doctor's nurse said they are being stricter about following patients on clomid. So I hope I am on AF when I go in there tomorrow so I don't feel like an @ss.

    I took it earlier this cycle and ovulated the same day. I'm thinking they will increase me to 100 mg and I will probably still take it early and see if that combination can make me O a few days earlier. What I am really starting to be concerned with is the length of my LP. I barely made it to 12 DPO this time and spotted/very light flow at the end of the day. When I took clomid before I had a 14-16 day LP so this is very short for me.

    No clomid increase. He kept me at 50 because I have had a solid O on it the past two cycles. Feeling frustrated. I O'd fine on 50 mg when I took it 4 years ago it just didn't get me pregnant until bumped to 100. I feel like this is going to mean a wasted cycle but I guess we'll see.

    Good morning!!

    I had a nice temp rise this morning. I feel like we did everything within our control to be successful...it's all the things outside our control that concerns me now (is his sperm good, is my egg good, are my tubes clear, is my lining sufficient, are my hormone levels right, gahhhhhhh). I'll get my "CD 21" testing next week and hopefully that will be good news.

    Time to just sit back, chill and try not to be crazy for two weeks.

    Cait...!!!

    Afm...beta is 152 (down 73% from 555 a week ago) !!!! At the current rate it should be <5 in 3ish wks . I'm still spotting/bleeding every day...it's been all but 7 days of the last 8wks. I'm hoping that resolves once my levels are down.
