A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape…
But a woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape.
A strong woman isn't afraid of anything…
But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear.
A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her…
But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.
A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future…
A woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them.
A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face…
But a woman of strength wears grace.
A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey…
But a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong.

Hi ladies! I got my +opk on Thursday (CD 14) and another one on Friday! So according to my tracker, I'm 2 dpo today, although I really think it's 3dpo b/c I didn't feel any O pains past Friday. Oh well, at least I'm in my 2ww! :) We bd'd Wed thru Fri so we'll see! I'm thinking I may follow bfromthed and have a progesterone test done just to make sure?? Although I'm pretty sure b/c I'm not having O pains at all anymore, and that's my key sign... I'll probably still have it checked though! lol!
Bfromthed- I'm sure if you would've waited one more day it would've been more accurate, and would've showed that you did in fact O! I would call and double check with your Dr. Maybe you can have another one done just to reassure yourself! :)

Dnikki- Mommyin10 texted me that too! That's SO gross! Uugh!! I put Addy on Enfamil and seems to be doing great with it! Hopefully Peyton will adapt ok too! :) Lucky you, wish I had some time off from work too! ;)

Krichar- Yayyy!! Look at you! I LOVE how positive you are! :) I agree, this IS your cycle!!! :) Good luck!!!!

I already did this once and I pressed something and it deleted everything lol!!! I'll update on myself later!

If I got anyone's updates wrong, let me know! Have a great day everyone!!

Hugs, Love and SSBD to all :-)

Thanks for checking out the pics.  You are right I am soooo lucky to have her.  I am sorry you are having a hard time on these meds.  I pray it all works out sooner rather than later but the truth is as long as you don't give up it will work out sooner or later.  It just has too!  Lots of SSBD to you!!!!

Good morning ladies.  It's been quite a while since I've checked in and I was very touched to see that my name is still on your list!  It's good to see so many familiar names and so many new little ones.

I wish I had good baby news to share, but just thought I'd let you all know that I'm doing OK.  We are now well over 4 years of TTC, so needless to say it's been a hard road.  I recently saw an RE who feels that my ovarian reserve is decent, but not that great for a 30 year old.  Plus, I have a luteal phase defect with my average cycle being only about 23 days.  He feels that our best chance would be IVF, but DH and I have done much soul searching and know that this is not an option we want to pursue.  So, we still do have the option to use injectibles to stimulate ovulation, accompanied by an HCG trigger shot and progesterone supplements.  We just met with him about 2 weeks ago, so we're still trying to digest it all.

Basically for us, we feel in our heart that we need to make a decision.  It's too hard to live every day hoping for something that seems so out of reach.  With so much trying and never one BFP, we feel it's coming down to whether we want to push the issue, or whether we should just accept our life as it is.  I'd welcome any thoughts, as well as any advice/warnings on the meds from those of you who've used them.

Well, my best to all of you.  I really am happy to see that so many of you have started your families, and my prayers are with those of you still on your journey.

Hey everyone!!! I seem so out of touch...I have been so busy just in life and trying to get ready for this cycle. 3 more days till lining check and transfer in probably 7 days. Everything seemed to be going great up until this week. I guess a week and a half of estrace seems to be taking a toll on me. I am crying at EVERYTHING!!! Also i have been riddeled with terrible bouts of anxiety and a sense of dread! It may just be the meds but all of a sudden i am aware it may not even work  at all this time. I don't know what to do???

guesito- Congrtas on feeling the baby move...you must be over the moon!!! And you are going to fine out the sex in no time...How exciting!!!!

Luvkayln- I hope your body straightens itself out soon...you can say so from me in a very stern voice!! LOL!! It must be super frustrating to not know what is going on!!! I can only imagine!

mommyin10- I am so glad to see you are back and that the twins are doing great!! I can't wait to see pics of them in their costumes...i bet they look sooooo cute!!

mlward3- Welcome and sorry for your loss. I too had a miscarriage back in february at 12 weeks. It was from an FET so we are still trying...it is just a waiting game. I hope this cycle works for you!

sbumblebeeo- I checked out your new pics....and Shelby is absolutley adorable!!! You are one lucky mama!!!

SammyJ- I am so glad to see you are back on board!! I hear you on the hoplessness. After 4 failed iui's, 1 failed fresh IVF and 2 misscarriages from FET there isn't a lot of hope left...but what else can we do. We have to try to hope as much as we can!!!
