Ok, Dr Amos suggested we start an add on to the 2ww, I thought about it to already anyway...So here we go!
Mahog....Im soooo jealous sista, the beach? I need to have a freak out!
Those huge amount of posts in one thread really slow everything down.
Cristy~Starting a new thread is good....
I know the freak outs are always good,I usually pull those freak outs every 3 or 4 months,if dh won't do it willingly he will do it by force..lmao
Its the best way to get a mini vacation...
Did you use OPKs this cycle? Did you O yet?
Your welcome Dr Amos ;)
Mahog` I freaked out over the weekend and almost got divorced! LOL! Your dh can handle it alot better than mine. This Clomid is ruff as hell to deal with. Somehow, Someway over the weekend I love my best friend. She doesnt want to talk to me anymore...Opps...I need a vaca too! Dang it!
Where's all my TTC sista's?
I did end up getting AF a week early...which was a bummer! However, I was glad to see that AF came on it's own and I didn't need progesterone again! I was able to start clomid on Monday, so tonight is day 3.
This time around I am taking my temps and charting. I may need help as this is my first month doing that.
Glad to see that BM is back up!
Hey ladies, it's been awhile since i've posted. I really had to take a break from obsessing about TTC. It was consuming my life for awhile! anyway i am back with good news!! i got a BFP on friday!!! i am so excited! i really wanted to let you ladies know that i really think pre seed helped us. it was our second month using it and we got pregnant. we started trying in september. i guestioned if i needed it but thought what the heck and bam, it happened second try.. if any of you are looking for something different to try give it a shot!!
I just started using it and I hope your right.....
Cristy~Sorry to hear that you and DH had a fight,but it looks like it was good timing cus if you O within the last couple of days makeup sex is always beautiful.....
Crazychick~Congrats on the BFP..H&H 9months
Hi girls - FINALLY BM is working again! It will only be a matter of time til we make this a crazy busy board too! : ) I'm STILL waiting on AF to show up, she's such a b*tch! I'm feeling really crampy in my lower back but I'm not getting my hopes up! LOL
Mel, dang it girl! I hope she comes soon!
Tricia, Im sorry! But we dif' help with the charting...They help me all the time!

Mack, I know I was going stur crazy! Yeah, yall are back. I wont be on much today. Im gonna go see my niece in the hospital....Be back later this evening..Not a big temp rise today!
Ok, yall. FF gave me my lines today and they say monday. But could I still have a positive opk on wed? They say it takes times for the lh to get outta your system so I dont know...WTH...Oh well anyways, I am officially in the 2WW! Yeah, it says I am 3dpo! Almost time to start pee'n!
Oh this is soooo exciting...Did yall know Evie got a bf? I was asking and asking about her and she pop'sin from nowhere w one! Maybe I should try that! LOL!
Morning girls. Well you won't believe what happened...my CBFM wanted me to start testing today...which is normal because I am on CD 6 and guess what...it was HIGH!!! I swear I will throw the thing through a wall if it gives me highs all month again!
Mel - Ok, it is way past time for AF to show up. Come on girl (lol)!
Cristy - hope you have a safe trip!
Okay I'm just checking in real quick. I'm glad this site is working again. I'm on vaca in Florida and using the hotel computer b/c mine isn't working. So.... I won't be on much until Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. I miss you all so much!
Mack--I'm sorry AF showed up for you too. I am on day 4 of clomid today....will you be doing clomid again?
Also, are you going to do anything different with this cycle?
What do temps do when you are on AF week, or the week leading up to O? Mine have been going up and down...
Tricia - I think it's normal for temps to fluctuate during AF week.
Mary - I hope, I hope your monitor isn't so mean to you this month!
I went apple picking - TDCA style - this morning and FINALLY saw a tiny bit of pink CM!!!! I about did a dance - who ever would have thought I'd be so happy to see this?! LOL So hopefully Mack today will turn into CD1 for me FINALLY and we can be cycle sisters! I'm *trying* not to get my hopes up too much that I'm finally starting but at least it's encouraging! LOL
Good Morning Ladies
Cristy~Yay for the 2ww I am right behind you,lets get ready for pee'n on a stick...lol
Mel~Keep your fingers cross for AF today...
Ladies I have a temp question:My temps are somewhat fluctuating and I have gotten positive opks,so shouldn't my temps be dropping by now?today is suppose to be my O day.
Can you ladies take a look at my chart?
Ok, It's been quite a while since I've posted.....and I promise I'll catch up on all of the posts ASAP......but right now I have got to vent!
Ok so my doc who has been absolutely GREAT to me for the past seven years decided to move to another practice about an hour west of me. I contemplated following him and just dealing with the hour drive but the hubby didn't like that idea. So a girl at work told me about this doc that is only 15minutes away and how much she liked her. So that is where I scheduled my yearly(just last month). I was very disappointed. Not only was she not friendly but the office was icky( i don't know how else to describe it nicely). This week I decided that I needed to call the doc because AF is sooooo late with multiple BFN's. So they scheduled blood work, an ultra sound and an office visit all within the next week. Great right?!?! NO! Three different appointments and none of them could be done at their office.......they had to be done at another office which is an hour away!!!! UGH!!!!!!!!! Come to find out, they don't have an ultrasound machine in their office.....and they don't even deliver at the local hospital!!!!!!! They deliver at the hospital an hour away and this office is just a satellite office!!!!!! Now, why couldn't they have told me all of this when I called to set up a "new patient" appointment!?!?!?!?!?! So Pissed!
Brenda that sucks! Can you tell your DH all this and see if he'll be more OK with you just following your old doc? I would push for it, it's you that has to be comfortable with your doc not your DH!
Oh Mel, I wish I could but DH made a very good point. The old doc went to a crappy hospital with a bad rep. The new doc is at a very well known and awesomely updated hospital.
I'm going to call my neice (she's a local RN) and she what she thinks I should do. She usually has the scoop on all of the docs.......
Oh BTW Mel.........what CD are you at now? I'm at 55 : (
I'm on CD65, which will hopefully turn into CD1...
I understand now about switching docs - from your original post I just thought your DH didn't want you driving 1 hr to go to the old doc. Are there any other options for docs in your area affiliated w/ a good hospital?
okay I figured out how to get on here using my palm phone. yay! MEL- I am so excited that you are spotting a bit. I bet AF will come today or tomorrow!
MACK- I am so sorry that AF came for you...
BRENDA- that really stinks about your new doc. I would be super frustrated, too
CRISTY- thanks for starting the new thread. I just looked at your chart. so glad you O'd and great BD timing!
Well I am back on clomid day 2, but can't get the fertility friend site to let me enter in anything but my temp. I'm hoping for less side effects this time around because I really don't want to be feeling sick on vacation.
BTW, thanks for the nice comments about my house on FB everyone! anytime you all want to take a trip to nashville I would love for you all to come :)
cristy- did you take the clomid days 3-7 or 5-9? I thoght you said you were going to take it 3-7 but on you chart it looks like 5-9. just curious
You know how smaller towns are..........everyone has something to say about everyone. I've heard good and bad things about every doctor in town.
Well, I just heard back from my neice...........she has gotten me in to see her doctor (who isn't suposed to be accepting new patients) this afternoon. This is an office of three doctors (all women) and their office is in the local hospital. My neice swears by these three doctors and says they are the best! I sure hope she is right!
hooray Brenda! that sounds great!
Great job Brenda's niece! : ) I hope they figure out what's going on with you and that YOU like and feel comfortable with whichever doc you see today! Keep us posted!
Thanks for all of the well wishes ladies!!!!!
Good Morning all !!!! I can not believe this site is back up!!! I have been trying on and off! I also have ok news!!! My numbers are going back down they were 34 last Thrusday and I go for another draw today. Then we will talk about doing a hsg, I am not sure when this month or next. I will keep you posted!!! And I think Af is starting today!!
Wow Brenda--great connections! I hope this appointment goes well for you!
Mel---Spotting!!! That's awesome....isn't it funny how at the beginning we are THRILLED to get AF, but at the end of the cycle we swear at her for coming :-) You can Join Mack, Laura and I in our early cycle days. Anyone else early on in their cycles?
Michelle - I think the HSG might be good for you, there's got to be a reason your pregnancies keep getting stuck in your tube! Good luck!
Couldn’t post for forever!!! I came back from Europe a while ago and was 5 days late!!!!!!! Off course I got really exited and bought a bunch of FR tests just to observe 1 line showing up. At least AF showed up on CD35---it never happened to me before—I’m always 30 days. While in Europe I went to the private lab and did fertility panel—FSH, LH, and testosterone and to my surprise, based on my lab results, I ovulated on CD19 last month---crazy!!! I always thought I ovulate on CD15-16. However, it could be a fluke too—I travelled so much and changed too many time zones. It is weird, because before my trip— CBFM was showing high. Oh well. Ok, its time to buy some supplies from earlypg. I want to try preseed this time)))) btw—Jessica I bought instead cup---they are very comfortable indeed!!! And Mel I hope AF shows up!!!!!! I’m hoping that May will be a great BFP month!!!!!!!
Mel- I guess we will be cycle buddies again!!! I just dont know when we will try again but will be following along no matter what!
Welcome back Mika!
I am cramping pretty heavily in my lower back so I hope that with the pink CM this morning that means AF is FINALLY on her way... 65 days is just too freaking long to wait!
I can't believe how long it has been for you!!!
Well I am going to go! I have alot to do today!! Have to go get this blood work over with and then come home and get ready for my daughters Daisy outting to Pump it UP! Then come home again and get ready for Open House and the Art show at the girls school! See sometime later today or tomorrow hopefully with more info on what the doc says!!!
Hey Ladies, I hope a new board make new BFP's for all you ladies, as for me i am ok apart from heartburn & a UTI i did have a scare the other day they found sugar in my pee but got the all clear yesterday... I am huge lol but i not complaining (sort of) i so so hope i get to share my pregnancy with your pregnancies that would be great!!
Also i find out the sex on the 3rd June 34 days to go!! I not counting honest lol...
and DH comes home on leave in 64 DAYS!!!!! Yeah he went away when i was 7 weeks and he will be back 2 days before i turn 25 weeks such a long time....
Also this Swine Flu is scary stuff as the drugs to treat symptoms can harm the baby i am so so worried i decided to cancel my flight home in 2 weeks as i not risking myself or the baby - although i have got a lil cold coming i have the sniffles but thats it... I hope & pray it goes away soon and they find the source of it.....
Also here is my BFP chart if anyone wants to see and by the scans i ovulated on the Sat not the Thursday like i thought although the doctor has said to keep my due date as the 9th October not the 17th??? Dont have a clue why!
Good luck ladies & i hope you get BFP's VERY soon
Morning Ladies! Can any one tell me how late in your cycle you can ovulate. I really dont think I have yet but thought by day 14 I would see a temp change. Is it typical it can happen past day 14? I am guessing with in the next day or so but I am all confused now cause my period came early this month and now I am ovulating later lol..
Chrissy~I am wondering the same thing,shouldn't there be a temp change by now so maybe O is later.We are cycle buddies...In past cycles I was able to determine when I O'd but this cycle I am already confused...
Here is my chart.
Thats really weird. I am really interested to see what the next day or so brings. I have another friend who isnt charting but is TTC and she Od Early this month so maybe there is something in the air LOL.
I will deff keep you posted w/the next day or so.
Hope you get that jump soon too!
I have O'd as late as day 17 or 18.
So I sound like a total nut by asking this but does that mean AF would be late and result in a longer cycle then the 29day cycle I am on now? Or does it not affect that? I am sorry I feel silly asking that but this is really only my second month seriously charting and so I am still learning alot about it.
Chrissy~It could go one of two ways it could mean a longer cycle or shorter luteal phase if I am correct but you just never really know until af show,for me I never have a cycle longer than 28dys but when I don't O AF will usually show on the 25th or 26th day...So I think you just have to keep charting and temping and hope you will O soon...
I need to be outlawed from doing medical research online..........I swear it could consume my entire life if I let it. ;)
Has anyone ever heard that PCOS can affect your HCG levels? I have been reading up on this and everyone has different thoughts but the common thread has been that women with PCOS have been getting BFN's on urine tests until they are 7 or more weeks along........
MAHOGANY-- you got it right. =)
CHRISSY-- there's just no way of knowing... SOME women have VERY consistent LPs. so if they O late, then AF will be late. OTHER women (like me) have VERY consistent cycle lengths. so no matter when you O, AF still comes when expected. btw, i have a 26 day cycle and i tend to O anytime from CD12-CD16. after charting for a while you'll start to learn what YOUR pattern is... hopefully you never get to chart that long! ;)
well, i don't think i'll be on much... ds has the stomach flu! poor boy! he's 5 and he's soooo sick. :( ***TMI*** he's got it coming from BOTH ends. :( gotta go be MOM and wash him up and his sheet and get him ginger ale to sip... and keep dd away from him... oh man, i hope she doesn't get it too! or ME!!
BRENDA-- yes,i've heard this... something about how it all gets processed in the kidneys or something?? anyways, other thing to give you hope when you get an early bfn. ;)
