OK, I'm new here and this is the first time I've done anything like this. I need some advice on whether I am losing it or just being paranoid! I've been blessed with one of the best husbands in the world and I'm not sure what I'm feeling. We've been trying to get pregnant for two years and recently started treatment this year during August/September time frame. I'm on my 4th and possible final cycle of Clomid and Ovidrell as we tried it twice with home intercourse and twice with IUI. I am currently three days away from the blood test and today for the first time I thought I felt cramps. Everything according to my doc is normal although my right ovary has been doing all the work. Each month I have had between 2-4 mature eggs. When I started, my cycle was 25 days and now as of last months "Auntie" visit, its at 27. I'm worried now because my blood test is for 12/26. I am so scared and worried because we decided that if this last IUI does not result in a pregnancy, we're going to take a 6 month vacation from trying with treatment. I don't really want to but I have to because even though I've tried not to cry and get upset, I have each time things did not work out but less after the last one before this. I can not tell you how much I pray for this and try to be strong, but lately it seems like I cry at anything and don't know what to do? Can someone give me some suggestions on what I can do to try and stay calm and/or if vacationing is a good idea? thanks.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
My ENT sent me for more tests last week...one where they had me lie back in a chair, with blacked out goggles on so I couldn't see while they administered water into my ears one at a time ( first warm, then room-tempurature, then cold) while they video taped my eyes and asked me questions to determine how cognizant I was... This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
