I've had a couple positive OPKs but nothing good on Sono. My son turns 6 in two weeks 😭 such a big kid age. I'm hoping the age gap works out well,I didn't exactly plan for it

I'll say it's much harder with people I know in real life. I'm a lot more emotional about those than my patients at work.

Some days are for sure harder than others but I have the benefit of working for my docs who are hell bent on getting me pregnant. She said estrogen was an option because clomid thins my already thin lining but because I responded so well she wants to stick with it rather than switch to femara, at least for now. I guess we'll see! I had a nice big follicle on Sono today for the first time ever so the 2ww is right around the corner. I'm trying not to let my hopes get too high

Sometimes I get couples who have gone through hell and are so happy- I feel good after those appointments. And then sometimes I get "we just took my mirena out last month!" garbage and I'm scrunching my toes under the table while smiling "omg! That must have been such a surprise!"

I've accepted that after 7 cycles of mostly lurking, I may be here a while so I should say hello. Hi! I'm a nurse at an OBGYN because I guess I'm a masochist. Had a whoops baby at 21 and now that I'm married, settled and actively trying I have PCOS because, you know, life. Ive known my husband since middle School, but we reconnected after college and have been inseparable since :) We're on our first cycle with clomid right now and confirmed ovulation today, though my lining is super thin so we may as add estrogen next cycle. If clomid doesn't work we're pretty much fucked because I don't have any infertility benefits. I'm trying to keep positive since I'm actually ovulating for once. 🤞🏼

I'm an OB coordinator. Meaning my JOB every day is to congratulate newly pregnant women, explain all the testing, answer their questions, etc. I also teach the childbirth and breastfeeding classes.

It used to be my dream job but it's seriously killing me now.

Met Fiona at the bar tonight- I now believe in love at first sight by Jdubbs214 in aww

We're in Florida. It's a homebrew shop so they get away with letting kids in we're in Florida. Kids and dogs are allowed in certain bars. This is a home brew shop with a bar inside Edit: no more drunk redditing.

Clomid headaches basically. by lucifernox in trollingforababy

[–]Jdubbs214 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've luckily missed the headaches, but my mood swings and hot flashes are going to drive my poor husband out of the house

“If I’m not pregnant this cycle then...” by MamaLong in TryingForABaby

[–]Jdubbs214 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'll be upping my dose of Clomid and freezing out my house to deal with these hot flashes. Also, looking into traveling for infertility treatments thanks to that post earlier. (I still don't understand how working for an OBGYN I don't have infertility coverage!)

Who knows that you are TFAB? by PeachesCobbler in TryingForABaby

I was very open about starting to TTC are the wedding which has long come and gone so I imagine people know? If anyone asks I'm very open about it partly because I don't think it's anything to be ashamed of, I want people also struggling to know me as someone who's beginning to get it, and also so people don't flood me with the "WHEN ARE YOU HAVING A BABY!?" heartbreaking questions nearly as often

My first ever keto snack.. I can get into this! by Jdubbs214 in Keto_Food

[–]Jdubbs214[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I sat there with my guac pouting because I couldn't use my chips to scoop it. Looked over, saw this mornings leftover bacon and was instantly sold. Best snack I've ever had.

By far the sweetest dog I've ever had. by [deleted] in aww

She looks like a flat coated retriever! We have one, too, who sings constantly. Best dog I'll ever have.
