May December be the BFP-fest everyone's been waiting for!

December is gonna be it, peoples! November was a sad, sad month for the BFPs (or lack thereof).

I do not have the first BFP of December. I did the ol' dollar store cheapie this morning, and it made me cranky, the whole screen got blurry and cloudy and sort of pink and weird all over, so I gave up and gave the big fancy digital a dip. I hate seeing that Not Pregnant.

Still not bleeding, though, so that's a good sign, right?

CD 13....so I think I'm out of the woods as far my luteal phase goes. Let's hear it for Vitex, EPO, and B complex! (And the ume plum balls, though looking at my pill box this week, it seems like I get one dose every day, two doses on a good day, and most days I forget to take the third.)

And the zit - because I know Erthe Mama is dying to know - is just a painful cystic lil' thing, and it's not going anywhere.

So, December - let's bring it, people!
post #4 of 281
Please add me to the waiting to know section...I'm ovulating right now, and we started insemination yesterday. My cycle is finally back to normal thanks to Vitex and Raspberry Leaf teas after I miscarried a few months ago.
post #5 of 281
Today is like the longest day of ever. I cannot focus, I cannot wait to go to sleep and test again tomorrow.

Of course, I have plenty of work to do, no shortage of things to get done, but I do not want to do anything except troll the internetz!

Off to therapy, back in a while.

ARGH!!!!

Is anyone else going stir-crazy???

: woohoo! the clinic just got back to us and dp's labs for dheas, testosterone and andro-whatsit all came back normal. ha! i have asked for a copy of the results just cause i'm anal like that.

so, what does that mean? it means we are cleared to ttc in december just as soon as dp's af arrives!!! :

one slight bummer - our acupuncturist is out for the next 2 weeks so we are scrambling to set up some appts with the clinic acupuncturist.

Woo-hoo, Indigo! :::
post #8 of 281
Happy December, everyone! I hope it's a lucky month!

FtMPapa -- how funny would it be, if the one time you *don't* think you're pregnant, you really are? My fingers are crossed that you'll get a BFP.

Fozzie & I are back from the midwest. At least the last loooong cycle meant I had AF, not O, during Thanksgiving travel. Whew. Sooo ready to try again (in a week or so). Specially because, "My wife is pregnant" would be the best excuse ever to get my gal out of jury duty in January!
post #9 of 281
Indigo- that is great news!

Papa- I still have my fingers crossed that this is your month.

So it has been 7 days since the IUI and really I have no symptoms. Yesterday I felt these strange pangs .. not really a cramp but kinda a tugging feeling. Other than that nothing. Is no symptoms a symptom??? I had bloodwork today to check my progesterone level and I should have the results tomorrow.
post #10 of 281
We are back here, with heavy heart. Please remove us from the BFPs and put us on waiting to be ready.

Right now we are waiting for the miscarriage to actually take place. Then we'll be waiting to figure out what is next. So lots of waiting in our future. Much too much, as far as I'm concerned given that we've been waiting over two years to get a pregnancy that sticks. (oooh, I see that I'm a bit bitter at this moment. Please forgive)

be well,
megin

Great news

KD is dropping by tonight! My temp is still down and still some ewcm today so we should have the timing right on. Hope to be joining the 2WW soon!

Good luck with POAS tomorrow, papa!!

GL Carmen!

Megin - so sorry to see you back here. I didn't want to post on the other thread, but now that you're back here,

I hope that health and healing return to your family soon.

I'm sorry megin, I didn't see your post when I posted earlier. I'm very sorry for your loss No need to ask forgiveness for bitterness...it's very acceptable given what you're going through. I wish you both a speedy recovery in every way.
post #15 of 281
Even though this is just a toss away try go ahead and move me to waiting to know. I think I popped an egg today and the goods arrive tomorrow morning. :s:: Stranger things have happened I suppose.
post #16 of 281
Yona - I'm hoping for strangeness! (You could pop two eggs, right?)

Still BFN this morning, 14 DPO, but still not bleeding...which makes it my longest LP in the past three.

Time to stock up on more tests, I burned through a whole bunch yesterday...dollar tree and I are having a love/hate relationship!
post #17 of 281
Sorry about the BFN, papa But I guess the long LP is at least some reason to celebrate!

We insem'd last night and my temp went up a bit this morning. However, that happened last try and it was just an atypical temp (which Lex caught as atypical ). So, will insem again tonight just to be sure and wait and see what happens on Wednesday.

It was my birthday yesterday so it would be nice to have conceived on that day

waiting

Megin, so sorry to see the news, no need for apologies for bitterness. Take good care of yourselves...whatever that means for all of you.

Good luck to all those in the "wait" who are obsessing over the varied nuances of being hyper aware of one's body. I have googled "early pregnancy symptoms" almost daily since we tried 9 days ago. So far, I have diagnosed myself with bigger breasts (okay, I usually have those before AF--but they seem even more swollen than usual), need to pee (which may be due to the massive amounts of tea I've been drinking in this cold weather), and moodiness (which could be attributed to the way I am most of the time ) I am worried that we tried with fresh a day or so too early (CM didn't really start until the day after) but I'm trying to reassure myself with the knowledge that the fresh goods last longer than frozen )

I am going to a conference tomorrow and will not test until Monday (unless I get AF). But ack! This is driving me nuts!
post #19 of 281
Megin - I am so so sorry. Go ahead and be as bitter as you like. I'm certainly still bitter.
