DS is 3 1/2 (turns 4 next March.)  He is mostly weaned.  He led the way slowly this past year - down to nursing himself to sleep for just a couple of minutes.  I'm not sure he has been getting much milk but I don't really know.  I have IGT and had to supplement with donor milk when he was really little.  I actually haven't been able to hand express even a drop for a few months.  In any case, I asked him a few nights if he wanted to go sleep without milk and he always...
Haven't had time to catch up yet.   DS has been sick with a skin infection and this is the first time he has needed antibiotics so I've been a bit worried and tired.  AFM, the yeast infection seems to be healing itself.  I'm 11 DPO and got a stark white FRER with first morning urine.  With DS I had a BFP on day 10 so my hope for this cycle is pretty much gone.

Enigo! Definitely pink line! Fingers crossed for you! What DPO did that happen on? AFM, I'm 8 DPO today and I think I've got a yeast infection in addition to the healing UTI. I actually think the UTI is pretty much gone and I'm just stuck with yeast. AAAAAaaaa! I have no idea what is going on this cycle. If I'm not pregnant and AF doesn't get rid of it, I'll be using that Monistat 7 box I've been eyeballing. Yes, I know this is looking really hard for a...
Quote: Originally Posted by Sweet.Bee luminesce, don't people suggest cranberry juice to prevent a UTI? I take it to improve EWCM, but if it does both, that could be a bonus. Good idea! I used to take cranberry tablets (really don't like the juice) long ago when I had this problem. Do you take it all the time or at certain points in your cycle? I didn't know it would help with EWCM -- I could use some help with that too since I usually only...
Sorry I've been MIA for a bit. Even though I apparently have a very low chance of getting pregnant each cycle, I have an unnaturally high chance of getting a UTI. This happened back when we first started about 6-7 months ago. At that time, DS was still breastfeeding a few times a day. I went to a specialist for a culture, and in two days it came back positive. She was COMPLETELY unwilling to work with me on antibiotics safe while breastfeeding (actually just...

Beloved: So glad you're okay after the accident. Sorry showed up. To those expressing loss of hope, I've been on that precipice. During the three years of TTC #1, there were many days when I thought it would never happen. A year before it did, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. It was a terrible time. I imagined myself growing old AND disabled quickly with no children. It didn't turn out that way though. A year later I was pregnant and over five years...

Well, I meant for an ultimate success with #2, not the SA I want to wait a couple of months for the SA because we all just got over what I think may have been the flu. The first time DH had a SA, he had just gotten over the flu and got a terrible result. Great count but only 5% normal form. The RE wasn't optimistic but when we told him...
CD3. Feeling cranky today so this is a self-centered post. I don't know whether to count this as the six month mark or not. It has been six months since we started trying but only four cycles were timed well and two didn't really have enough BDing. It is still depressing though. I guess the first three year wait is scaring me. I don't think I can wait three years for #2 at my age. If we aren't pregnant by the end of the year, I'm going to schedule a SA for DH. ...
