I really like how lyla would sound with your last name! It flows nicely I think :) I'm hoping for a girl too!

Thanks.... we're thinking of Grace for a middle name.



Let's hope and pray we both get on team pink! Tyler wants to have the donor sperm spun (placed in a centrifuge, spun, removing the X chromosome sperm and using that for insemination). He jokingly says that we're going to return a boy to sender.

Bleh... I'm definitely ovulating. I'm bloated, I want to eat everything, and my face is broken out.



Can we skip to next month please?



Only a TTC person would think about this but... I'm almost out of tampons. I'd really like to not to have to buy anymore. I have enough for this month, but no more please. lol

Awww! Lyla Grace, that's beautiful!!! That is so funny what Tyler said, sounds like something my DH would say!!!




To your other post about ovulating, I can relate!! I Oed over the weekend and wouldn't stop eating! Those days are always sad days for me.

Patrick wants a girl too?



Seriously.... I hate ovulating. I think it's as bad as having a period. But we're almost there girl! Only a few more months and we'll (hopefully and God willing) have our BFPs!



On a side note... I cried when I found out Jace was a boy... I was so disappointed. I know that sounds bad. Obviously, I'm over it now... boys are great. But now, I've had one and I'm ready for a girl.

No, he wants a boy of course... But he would say that about separating the boy and girl gene to get a boy lol




We are almost there!! Officially less than a month until his surgery and we are staying calm and positive! We aren't going to talk about options until we have to, we don't want to get stressed out and worked up if we don't have to. I really hope we get our BFPs soon!

I can't believe we're under the month mark! Crazy! So exciting! I'll be sending happy ju ju vibes your way! If all goes as planned, we'll be doing IUI the day before his surgery!

Ahhh!! Really? That's awesome. I'm praying for us both! This is so exciting. I'm so scared of our outcome but I'm trying my best to stay positive and doing a lot of different things to keep my mind off of it. One day at a time and we will get there.

Only hot flashes. My mood was actually just fine. I was worried about the mood swings but they never came :)

Hello ladies, I was told about this thread by a BG friend and am hoping to join you in this journey. I have bilateral tubal blockage. We underwent a fresh IVF cycle in January with no pregnancy and a Frozen cycle in July with a chemical pregnancy. Now I am off to a fresh start with a new clinic. I had my nurse consult yesterday and I will stop BC on the 18th, Baseline on the 21st and start stims on the 23rd. The approximate retreival date will be around December 4-7th. I am looking forward to sharing some of my journey with you and hope to cheer for those of you who are also still in the process of undergoing fertility treatment. Will anybody be close with my cycle days??? No matter if "only" clomid, IUI or IVF????

Welcome! You will love it here, the women are very welcoming and understanding. Sorry to hear about your unsuccessful IVF cycles! I hope the best for your next cycle!



My name is Ashleigh, DH and I have been TTC for 3 years and just recently found out my husband is azoospermic (meaning 0 sperm count)... He undergoes a surgery at the end of November to find viable sperm *fingers crossed!!!* & if they find sperm, we start our first IVF cycle at the beginning of December, very close to the time of your retrieval date!



I wish you lots of luck, and again welcome to the thread!! :)
