Brie- Thanks for making a new board!
I started Ganrilex today another injection to keep from ovulating too soon. Another appt in the morning. Had to order some more meds today so I don't run out. Yesterday they said to expect our ER maybe Friday, Saturday or Sunday!

Wow! It is SOO hard to believe that it is already December! Life here in these parts are absolutely insane! But, I am surviving and my classes are *almost* over with! Just a few more projects to do and I am DONE for the semester! I have about 3 semester left after this one--although I only have 5 classes. My final 2 classes will take all of next year to complete. (It's an internship and a seminar class). I will be SOO glad to be done! Teaching has been absolutely insane lately as well My classroom is definitely a hard one and I am having a hard time getting out of the rut that I have been in. Oh, and 2nd job is good. Working short shifts is really nice I must say!
It's hard to believe Jordyn is already 5 months old! Time has FLOWN by! She is growing like a weed and doing so well! Her big brothers are doing pretty good as well!
Tara: I am SOOO excited for you! I am praying and hoping and praying some more that this will be it for you!!
Nicole: It's so nice to "see" you! I am glad to hear that things are going well!
Brie: I completely feel you on the classes!! It is DEFINITELY not easy!
Everyone else! Hello!! I hope life is treating everyone well!

Can everyone please go to my Ovulation Calendar and tell me what you think. My temp is usually about 96-96.5, this past weekend it's been 97.0 and above. I hope that means I ovulated but how fast would is go up? Like RIGHT after? I think we might have missed it. I've just been so tired from working at night that I never want to have sex...

Christine: I feel married to my Stats homework this semester, its been killer!! Although I've done really well in it (an A!) Its super time consuming and pretty aggrevating lol. Im ready for a break!
Alexx: usually when you have higher temps for 3 consecutive days, it signals ovulation has occured on the day of your last "low" temp. My temp pre ovulation was always around 97.3-4 and after ovulation I'd jump to 97.9 and above.
Amy: I feel you on the whole "meaningless" thanksgiving... My family seems to have kept those core values, but they just drive me insane by always telling me they hope layla turns out to be a hellian...instead of saying "hey, you guys are doing a great job" they always focus on the negatives. I guess I should have gotten into some legal trouble to make them notice the GOOD i've done with myself and our family. But whatever. So we havent been to my family's thanksgiving in a few years. I dread christmas. Last year, they were all polite because Kasey had died the day before and I cried all day.
afm- just plugging along, last day of classes is thursday. Finals are the following week.
I also have been having to deal with my parents (step father in particular because hes so control freakish he wont let me speak to my mother)... What is it about this time of year that brings all the crazies out?! Im ready to shut down on my whole family.. I never ask for money, I never ask for help or favors, I never need bailed out...but yet somehow, I always manage to have my past thrown in my face..I decided this year, I will give it back just as much as they give it to me this year. I hate it when they think my child should be terrible, just because I went through a rough 2 years after my parents abandoned me. Im sorry.
Sorry, I know im rambling, its just frustrating! Its also hard to feel "christmasy" when all i can think of is Kasey

Sorry no time for personals at the moment. Haven't slept since getting off work this morning. Thankful not to have to work tonight. Went down for our appt and looks like we are likely going to have the ER on Saturday of course that is not for sure yet. That would put our transfer at the end of the next week probably. There are about 15-17 follicles that seem to be growing at the same rate which is good mostly about 13 or 14mm. They want at least two to be larger before the trigger shot and retrieval. Our doc will be out this weekend and the first part of next week which is a bummer, but one of her partners will be able to do what we need. Little bit by little bit we are getting closer. Discussed whether or not to transfer 1 or 2 embryos. I think Dr. S would really prefer we do one, but said she'd support our choice either way. Still not 100% sure, but still leaning toward doing 2. Such a difficult choice, but I'm so afraid of not being successful and the financial aspect that goes along with that. Fingers crossed that everything works out perfectly!
