I'm trying to catch up with all my threads but I'm exhausted right now. Yesterday I slept all afternoon until 10:45pm. I went to bed at midnight, woke up with DD at 9am. She's napping so I think I'll join her, I'm very sleepy!

I do see a line but I'm so bad at determining if its evap or not.

If it is I'm writing an e-mail to the company.

Mrs. O- I'm super excited for you and your sperm choice- It has to feel assuring that you have some abilities to choose what type of donor you want. When I found out DH had a low sperm count and our RE suggested a donor I started looking as well. I found a few matches, but we are going to try the next IUI with the injections to see if it helps. Our RE thinks it will but he wanted me to be double sure that I wanted to take a chance of having more than one. At this point I don't care. I can't believe how expensive sperm is!



As for the TTC and sex- ours have been up and down. When we were heavily TTC without meds or dr help it was frustrating because it seemed like all we did was have sex around O time. He hated that! As for now going through all the treatments and stuff has acutally helped our sex life. I think just knowning that its going to happen but medically reassures both of us. Except for this month we've only had sex 1 time and it was really difficult (birth control caused me to stay dry). We did it and overall enjoyed it except for that fact of the dryness. We've also been dealing with our son, he was just diagnosised with ODD and ADHD, so he puts a BIG strain on our marriage. Everyone asks me why do you want more with a child like that? I always say that no child is perfect and sometimes there are things you can't control. We are working with a counselor and trying to get him on meds to calm his hyperactivity down. I'm glad we caught this now because sometimes children can grow out of it with consistent praise and other things.



Spookshow- I'm super exccited for you and I hope you get your BFP! I know that it gets frustrating after every failed IUI, but I'm sure you will get yours soon!

So two days ago i started feeling this weird pressure, but not in my abdomen/pelvic area but like in my vagina. I tried to relax, went to bed that night and woke up the next morning with it still there. It wasn't constant, it would come and go. But that was my only symptom. Rather then freaking myself out for another week until my next appt i called my OB's office and asked them about it. They freaked me out and told me to go to the ER because there was nothing they would be able to do at the office for me, they needed me to have an ultrasound. Because i wasn't in PAIN i decided to go see my family dr just for a second opinion and see if i could just get a req for an Ultrasound at an outside clinic instead of spending my whole afternoon waiting in the ER. He ended up sending me to the ER anyways. We waiting there about 2 hours, got blood work done, tested my urine and did a portable ultrasound. Looks like baby is doing good, the little thing wouldn't stay still kept doing flips like crazy!! Was so neat to see it moving around. Anyways so they sent me home and told me it was probably just "growing pains" then about half hour after leaving they tell me my urine results came in, i have the slightest UTI which could be causing some of the pain!! No other symptoms of it. The ER dr consulted with my OB and they decided it's best i go on anitbiotics to treat it. Has anyone had to be on medication while pregnant??? It scares me!

sorry that is so scary!!! I had antibiotics for q uti with my kids. As far as I have heard its totally safe. Did they say anything to yiu about round ligament pain? I would guess this could be the cause also. Its fromn your uterus stretching and the ligament that holds it in place.

She didn't mention round ligament pain but thats what i was thinking it might have been...only i've never been pregnant this far along so i have no clue what it should or shouldn't feel like.

Oh, I am so sorry! I didn't even know you had lost your first husband.
Try not to worry about your husband being physically distant. Just try to focus on the little things that keep making a relationship work. My husband always get much more in the mood, when I focus on making him feel good about himself, when I focuse on making him appreciated. Date nights and a little kiss or hand holding or even leg rubbing also rekindle the feelings and the closeness. TTC is tough on the best of us!

The longer I look at it the more I am sure its not an evap. Did you trigger? If yes, when was your trigger? I don't think you did though, correct?

I was on antibiotics twice when pregnant with my son. It is totally fine. An ongoing infection would be bad and cause all kinds of problems, mainly preterm labor.
I am happy you got checked out. However I do feel like both doctors were a little bit overly concerned by sending you to the ER.

My thoughts exactly with them being overly concerned, however i do have a history of mc's. Now that it's all said and done i'm glad i went and got to see my baby. Totally eased my mind!!

Thank you! We are very affectionate with each other! I don't know why I just feel like his friend rather than his wife. I do realize I am being way over emotional and silly on this. I don't know why it bothers me. I'm a very lucky girl and I will try to make him feel more loved and appreciated and see what happens. When it comes down to it I think he just has a low sex drive. I think it bothers me a little also that he works around cute young girls all day long. He is Rockstar salesman, the energy drink. So he goes to all these coffee shops including risque ones and talks to them. His boss is also a good looking woman and just from the things he says she flirts with him. He just would never notice. I don't know whats wrong with my hormones this cycle I'm just way over emotional.
