Thank you!!!!!!!  This is so sweet (as I'm sitting here questioning my body and my timing because I haven't gotten a positive OPK yet:) ).  We have another insemination scheduled for tonight at 11:15 - way past my bedtime but WAY worth it!

 

Thanks everyone!

Yes, yes... GOOD LUCK!!! I am so excited for you!

And besides being happy for *you*, I'm selfishly hoping you have GREAT success, so you can help me through it next year! ;)

Thanks again everyone!  :)  We need all the luck and love that we can get.  Got the positive OPK, got the peak on the fertility monitor, doing a 3rd insemination tonight.  If nothing else, timing should have been great!

YAY for great timing!!! :)

The average "success rate" for timed intercourse is about 33%, IIRC.  In other words, most women get PG  in 3-4 tries (months) using timed intercourse.  You have great chances!!

Those are better stats than I've heard, L!  I'll take yours:)  I've heard 16% chance if everything is working okay.

Got my fingers crossed--visualizing Jessie big, round, and pregnant!

OH yeah, just visualize those little sperms attacking your egg, and one penetrating it.  Visualize that zygote splitting and multiplying over and over again while it makes it's way toward your uterus, while encouraging your body to make the hormones necessary for the egg to implant itself in the womb's wall.  Imagine the fertilized egg burying itself deep into the mucosa of your uterus, all snug and warm, preparing for 42 weeks of love and nurturing from you and Greta.  Visualize that every time you eat or love your baby is flooded with nourishment--both caloric and hormonal.  And lastly, visualize yourself holding that newborn, wide grin on your face, with Greta right there, while someone takes the first picture of the happy family.  I wholeheartedly believe that active visualization is magick and helps manifest our most intense desires!  Keep us updated!

Thank you, Tammy!  I have been trying to do some visualization but my mind keeps drifting.  I wish it was easier for me.

Of course I don't mind if you use the visualization, Sarah! 

I have worked on developing visualizations when I used to do past life regression on people.  It's a kind of self hypnosis.  Of course it doesn't guarantee a positive result, but I've seen enough positive results from visualiztions to believe that it can make a difference.  I've given visualizations to friends for job interviews, first dates, giving a speech, etc.   Good luck!
