Hi all, We finally had our long-awaited appointment with the fertility specialist yesterday, and it went very well. I showed him my temperature/sex/ovulation charts, and the Dr. was very impressed. He said my charts belong in a text book, and he believes me I'm ovulating. He gave me a quick ultrasound: I don't have any ovarian cysts, everything he can see looks great. After my next period starts (this weekend) I need to call his office and get an appointment for the...
When I go in for my first appointment, I will be on cycle day 23, which is usually 9 DPO for me. Of course I will probably not be pregnant (wouldn't be going in if things were working right) but just.in.case. I get magically lucky- this would be too early for a BFP- Does anyone know if the ultrasound harm the theoretical embryo? I have absolutely no ability to change my appointment with the fertility specialist- I needed to wait more than 2 months to get this initial...
Congratulations Jess!
Rosie!!! That is so super wonderful. Congratulations.  
I'm so sorry, Caly. Hugs to you. Is your husband working at Toolik? When does he get home?
My temp went back up this morning, which looking back over past cycles, can still lead to menstruation tomorrow. Caly- I never get evaporation lines (I checked several sticks out my trash, and I looked at this morning's stick many times to see if an evap line would develop, nope). Maybe you are higher in a hormone that reacts slowly on the stick than I am? Or maybe you are using different sticks? I use the Amazon cheap ones. Rosie, I have to wait two months to see the...
My temperature plummeted this morning, so I'm out. Chapluqa- do you know about the cheap test strips on Amazon? 20 cents each, and they don't have all that ridiculous plastic packaging the drugstore tests are wrapped up in, so you can use them more frivolously and be less concerned about filling the world up with non-degradable garbage. For example, I tested this morning (11 dpo, after seeing my temperature plummeted) just to see if I could see a trace of a chemical...
Honestly, Lilac, I don't know how you could find any genuine information on the subject unless you can access PubMed from work or something? Anything you find out in internet world will be all "Be afraid, potentially pregnant lady! You can't be trusted with information so we will just tell you that EVERYTHING YOU CONSUME may harm the unborn!" Harm in the third trimester does not translate at all to harm in the first weeks. I strongly believe that stress can also affect...
Hi Rosie- sounds great :). I think you and Caly are both 8 dpo? I am 10 dpo (according to me- FF refuses to give me a day this cycle.) I definitely need this to be the month of whining. Our 12th cycle of trying.
I'm so anxious. I think my chart might be triphasic this month (as I've thought other months) and I won't test until Thursday (I should wait until Friday.) So I've spent all morning researching why I could actually have implantation followed by a menstruation, just in case that is what my charts have shown me... I have no hope for being pregnant this month, but I still keep compulsively counting the days to be sure that yes, I can test on Friday... I just want to be...
