    Hi everyone, thanks for being excited with me for the past day or so... but AF came last night. boo. I think DH was more disappointed than I am though!! However, he also keeps telling me: "don't worry, I will be happy with one son, two cats and a basset hound." but that's not good enough for me... and I wouldn't mind fewer cats. lol

    @bettydogooder, 6 weeks 'til your wedding!!! How exciting! I hope you have a LOVELY day and everything falls nicely into place. Maybe you should "hire" a bridesmaid to keep poking you in the ribs just in case.

    @Alzora, I found a few other sites that also have orphan hosting possibilities and read their FAQ section about whether one should host if they weren't intending to adopt. It offered an interesting perspective. This website had an interesting answer: http://www.newhorizonsforchildren.or...mon-questions/ (it's quite a ways down the page). It seems harder to do this type of thing here in Canada though... but I think I will tuck this info away in my brain for future reference.

    @Sarahmezz, oh dear, no answer wrt what is causing problems yet. I hope that month 6 will be THE month for you!

    @frangipangi and other friends here, you're right... we're due for good news! I hope September is good to all of us.

    thinking of you all...

    @Lilysong, Thank you for the link! I'm going to check it out as soon as I finish posting here. I'm sorry to hear about your bad news...but you and I can grieve together, because I have the same news to share. :/

    The hours before my period comes are often characterized by intense anxiety, which kicked in last night. When I am anxious, I take solace in routine and am averse to the thought of any kind of major life change. So when I awoke to my period first thing this morning, I must confess, I was filled with relief that there is no pregnancy or baby in my foreseeable future. But of course, now that the news has had time to really set in and my pre-period anxiety has subsided, I am pretty deeply devastated. This was a hard month for me. The daily sobbing, the fear, and the depression have all culminated in another blow. It has been one full calendar year of trying, and thirteen failed cycles. I am finally on my husband's insurance, though, so I can call and get ACTUAL pricing on things like a fertility specialist consultation, an HSG, and a semen analysis. My husband doesn't want me to call today; he wants me to take a day to kind of unwind. As far as future attempts go, I am somewhere between extremely hopeful and completely hopeless.

    Hi all. Sorry about the bad news, Lilysong! I cannot believe we got absolutely 0 BFPs this month! What are the chances? I guess we'd have to figure out how many people we have here to calculate that.

    Alzora, I know exactly what you mean about the short-lived relief once AF comes. For me, part of it is an end the the exhausting hope and uncertainty. But there's more to it. This month, part of me was just so enjoying exercising and having a really awesome, interesting life. I felt almost guilty, like that secret desire to stay free killed my chances at conceiving-- and with the excessive bike riding, I guess it could have.

    So no Maybies? Anyone still in the running for one? Sarah?

    Well here's my silver lining for this month: If I conceive with THIS current cycle, I will have a June baby, and maybe--just maybe--it will be born on the anniversary of my near-fatal car accident. A June 13 baby would be poetic for me, and because my accident made such a huge splash locally, it would blow everybody away. Any June baby born after June 13 would still commemorate the accident, because I was in the ICU for that whole month...so a June baby would almost certainly be born on either the anniversary of the accident or the hospitalization. And that would be like God's finishing touch on the miracle.

    This past June 13, ON the actual date, my period was one day late and I hoped to discover life inside of me on my almost-death date, but alas, I got a BFN. But a baby BORN on June 13 would be even cooler than just getting a BFP on June 13. I shall have to speak to God about this....

    Apart from my top name loves, I have this one little name for a girl tucked away just in case I give birth to an accident-anniversary daughter. Zoya Hope. Zoya is a variant of Zoe, which means life--something that was supposed to end for me on 6/13/2010, and the thought of this broken body producing NEW life would be a miracle in itself. And the Hope part of it is because that was all people were left with on the day of my accident; doctors and EMTs all thought I would be dead by morning, so all my family and friends had to hold on to was hope...and I saw "hope that doesn't ever end, even when the sky is falling." Zoya Hope also just sounds freaking awesome. If I had a boy on my accident anniversary? Hm...maybe Lazarus!

    ...or Anastasios resurrection life! Although, he would be forever thought to be a girl at first glance of his name. Lazarus would be a great name to commemorate your life-date, thought I hope you have a little baby girl, 'cause Zoya Hope is REALLY pretty and the meaning is GREAT, Alzora! If I conceive this month, I might have a special birthday present for my mom... her birthday is June 17th. That would be fun... plus, my top girl name is Eliana, in part to honour my mother who goes by Ellie (she's an Eleanor). Plus, Eliana means "God has answered".
    At least now you can move forward and try to get some answers from some doctors. I hope answers come quickly for you!

    @daisychain, thanks! Like you said, I was a bit relieved, in part because I'm really tired right now because our baby boy has had a rough month sleep-wise. However, the weather suddenly turned cooler last night and he slept 8 hours straight, followed by a brief snack and then 2 hours more. Yeah! Now he is having his 2nd nap of the day (the last 2 days he refused to nap much at all unless it was in my arms... since he is 11 months old, he should have outgrown that by now!) so hopefully the weather was the cause of his schedule fluctuations and short sleep times and now we can re-establish our daily schedule, charge up our sleep banks and get ready for the next BD sessions.
