Well...this has been my best appointment yet. 😁 Last night I came down with a mild case of the stomach bug and was so nervous I wasn’t going to make it to my appointment. Feeling like you are about to get sick is not fun while getting an ultrasound. But...I made it through! During my scan I seen 2 huge follicles on my left side and 3 huge follicles on my right side. After having so many ultrasounds, I definitely know what I’m looking for. I knew the follicles looked huge but I didn’t know how perfect they actually were. The ultrasound tech kept saying things like, “looks like Dr. Anderson found a medication dosage you respond well to” and “are you ready for multiples?” I thought nothing of the multiples questions because I seem to get asked that every appointment. An average mature follicle size is 18mm. The FIVE of mine all ranged between 19-23mm. They were all mature and looked super healthy. It wasn’t until Dr. Anderson came in to talk to me when I realized how amazing everything is looking so far. I figured something was going on when I had a few nurses walk by my room and ask me “are you the one with all of the follicles? How are you not in pain? Do you have a lot of pressure?” Apparently this was a big deal here. I wasn’t in any pain. It felt like any other month. Dr. Anderson came in and said “well it looks like you have nothing but good news to share!” He told me that he was 100% positive that I will ovulate all FIVE follicles. He also said that he’s only seen this happen one other time during his practice. He also showed me on the ultrasound report that in one follicle you could see the ACTUAL EGG! Once again, he told me he’s never seen one so pronounced on ultrasound before!! Now for the trigger injection. Doctor’s have to be really careful when they prescribe the trigger injection with multiple mature follicles. He asked me over and over again, “are you sure you want to do this!?” Well duh!! Normally doctors wouldn’t prescribe the trigger for more than 3 follicles but since I’ve never been pregnant before we decided to do it. However, the risk of overstimulation is increased. With the trigger, all 5 follicles will release. Continued 👇🏼
And that’s exactly what I’m doing and what we should all be doing • Never give up because God has something great at the end of the tunnel • #ttcjourney #ttcsisters #ttcbaby1 #ttc #motivationalquotes #inspiringquotes

Tuesday morning reminder from @mrs_izzyjudd ❤️💫
Making our homemade laundry detergent! 😍
OHSS has me feeling really awful still. Unfortunately, I had a Christmas party to go to the day I was scheduled for my transfer, but when the transfer was cancelled due to ohss I didn’t grieve. I pushed the disappointment down, went to the party, drank A LOT of wine, and acted like an irrational nut. I KNOW not to drink when emotional and I did it anyway. :/ I am sharing only to remind you all that it’s okay to hurt and feel disappointment and grieve. If you are like me, you will compartmentalize and rationalize and swear you’re not affected even when you want to die inside. But it comes out, always. And when you aren’t smart, it will show itself in a way that leaves you feeling humiliated too. Find an outlet with your hubby, mom, best friend, God, or this community. #dealwithitoritwilldealwithyou #itsoknottobeok #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttcbaby1 #infertility #infertilitysucks
Saw this post from @healingenergytools. Spoke so much to me!! We’ve been trying to get pregnant for 16 cycles now and after an early miscarriage last month, I’m praying for a miracle this month!! #ttc #ttcbaby1 #ttcjourney #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #ttcrainbowbaby #miscarriageawareness
Firstly, thank you. Thank you for taking time out of your day to share in these moments with us. This is me, J. We wanted to share a little bit about ourselves to help get to know us a little more. I am direct, abrasive, and uncouth in most facets of my life, something I'm working to lighten as best I can. To the dissatisfaction of my wife (and likely my mother), outside of marriage the things that bring me the greatest joy and peace in life are the same that may put my health at risk. "Men", amiright? However, in looking after my mental well-being (and physical as an upside) to the best of my ability, I continue to pursue my favorite hobby and develop the skills it requires. What am I talking about? Road racing. Nearly a year ago I dipped my hairy toes into road racing and now own a motorcycle solely built for track days and I cannot help but to keep going back. There is a peace I can't find anywhere besides on track. -------------------------------------------------------------- #unexplainedinfirtility #infertility #infertilitystruggles #ttc #ttcbaby1 #ttcjourney
Thank you all for being INTERESTED in our journey! Hopefully I'm helping you guys as much as you are HELPING ME 😘😘 #ttcsupport #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #ttcbaby1
Going back to work tomorrow. I was home last week because of cramps and the fact that I felt completely crushed.

5 DPO, tomato soup for lunch. I’ve been having tomato soup for lunch almost every day for about a week.

Around 5 dpo. I’ve been trying to relax a bit so I haven’t been temping every day, just trying to go with the flow. But I am liking how high my temp is this morning. Plus I’ve been SO moody the past few days. It’s like I have extreme ups and downs.. it’s crazy. Never felt that before.. This is our 16th cycle ttc. Fingers and toes crossed and prayers appreciated!! 🙏🙏🙏🤞🤞🤞 #ttc #ttcbaby1 #ttcrainbowbaby #ttcjourney #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #bbtchart #miscarriageawareness #ovulationaftermiscarriage #miscarriage #prayingsohard #fingerscrossed

The bottom 4 pictures are 2 different wedding bands I’m trying to choose which one to choose. The top two pictures are of my engagement ring. I like the wedding band because it has the diamonds on both sides like my engagement ring does. Which one do you think? The band with the bigger diamonds or the one with the smaller diamonds? I love rose gold so I’m wanting a rose gold wedding band but would that look weird with a white gold engagement ring? I need your thoughts ladies!! #lookingforadvice #sapphireengagementring #wedding #weddingband #diamonds #rosegold #whitegold #ttc #ttcbaby1 #ttcjourney #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #ttcrainbowbaby #miscarriage #infertility #infertilitysucks

I dedicate this day #flashbackfriday to my husband. I appreciate his every gesture even when my mood goes foul. I appreciate his willingness to learn my heart and give me the affection I desire. My husband has been my rock (besides the Lord), he keeps me grounded at every trialing time and leads me with love and kind words • #flashbackfriday #flashbackphoto #weddingdayphoto #ttcjourney #ttcsisters #ttcbaby1 #ttc
Haven’t temped the last two days but I’m in the tww. I’ll be shocked if I get pregnant this cycle because this is the first cycle after my miscarriage.

#2017bestnine - 2017 has been really, really tough and I am praying that 2018 will be kinder to us! But in amongst the tears, stress and struggles there has been some wonderful moments with friends and family, lovely holidays and apparently, great clothes!
When I was a little kid I watched #Dumbo so much that I wore out the VHS tape. At the time I related to Dumbo because I was born with big ears that stuck out. Now, I relate to his mom and her #infertility struggle. This movie has played such a major role in my life. #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #infertilityhurts #ttcbaby1 #ttc #failediui #iuifail

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Sounds about right!

As many of you may remember, today is the day we find out the outcome of our IVF! It is very exciting, but I ask that you please give me the opportunity to process and share with my husband and our families the hopefully good but potentially bad news. I promise, I won't keep anyone waiting long. This journey takes the excitement out of a lot of things. I would still like the opportunity to share when I am ready.

I bought the @avawomen bracelet months ago but never really used it. Pulling out all the stops this cycle for our first IUI!

Cycle day 4 i’m still feeling super positive but I’m also getting kind of anxious/nervous because my husband who is normally always pessimistic is now staying to because positive about our first IUI and he has a good feeling that good things are going to happen! . . . #TTC #ttccommunity #bbtchart #waitingforaf #IF #infertility #blockedfallopiantube #ttcsisters #ttczone #ttcjourney #ttcbaby1 #transfamily #transhusband #lgbtfamily #iuijourney #spermdonor #seattlespermbank #oregonreproductivemedicine #pom #fertility #fertilityjourney #transman #ftmtransgender #transgender #baby #donorsperm #iui #letrozole #cycleday4 #ttcbaby1transfamily

After talking to E, I realized the only reason she hadn't been using OPKs since we started our treatment was because our RE told her not to. "Why?" - you ask. Because he didn't want her to stress over it. Well, because her cycle is longer than normal we may have been dancin' too early in the cycle - per the schedule as suggested by the RE. Were we too early during our previous rounds? In short, we weren't tracking so we will never know but we've decided to track this month and see what comes of it. What has your RE recommended? Are you tracking and / or following your own schedule? Are you as easily frustrated by something like this suggestion as I am? - J -------------------------------------------------------------------- #thisisinfertility #unexplainedinfirtility #ttc #ttcbaby1 #ttcwithclomid
