T minus 5 days

Only 5 days until I know for sure if my egg caught up with Nate's swimmers. That's right the femara appears to have worked. I'm eager to test even if it may not be positive. No real signs or symptoms yet, but that's alright.

I have been having some problems outside of the ttc ring. My joints have been aching to no avail. I have ulnar neuropathy in my right arm which often causes my elbow down through my fingers to hurt but lately my left hip and both shoulders have been bad too. I go see my dr on the 2nd for my annual physical so I'll ask her about it then. I worry about arthritis setting in this early, for goodness sake I'm 25.

Monday I'm supposed to have a CT scan of my sinuses since I was treated for a sinus infection back around Christmas and it doesn't seem to have cleared up. The headache is worse some days than others and I just hope this doesn't lead to another surgery, I'd kinda like to have only one more when it's time to have the next baby.

On a side note I want to send out a congrats to Nancy and her new man Karl, Elana for passing her 3 hour GTT and Katie for making it through her first day of work. Big hugs to Sarah R, let me know if there is anything I can do for you honey. And gentle hugs for Shayna, I know you are in a rough spot honey but when you hit bottom the only way to go is up, you are always in my thoughts.

Thank you!!!

Sarah R said...

Aw, thanks for thinking of me!!!

I hope you get your BFP! I'm pulling for you, girl. I know a lot of women with zero symptoms that get their BFPs; let's hope you're one of them! :)

ugh. I dont know if I can be your friend anymore. I am trying not to think about TTC so I dont obsess. Obsessing would be all that I am doing considering still no AF since B was born!

;-) anywho, good luck, and dont obsess so I dont have to!!!! ;-p

Hey - you updated finally! So when are you going to test? Monday? How many dpo will you be? And did you get an u/s to see what kind of follicles you made on the femara? Just wondering what kind of monitoring you got to ensure ovulation - hoping your RE was on the ball with real monitoring. Good luck!!!

I've been meaning to ask you, is your brother's name Karl?

(and thanks for the congrats on my own news!!! )

No monitoring this cycle, but that was my choice. Next cycle will be more monitoring.

Yep my little brother is a Karl, he was named after my Dad's dad and our great grandfather.
