Gah... I hate this rollercoaster... I want a clear and obvious "hey stupid you're pregnant" from a pregnancy test.

AFM- this thread and all you kind ladies has been a life saver for me in this 2ww! Usually dh has to be the only recipient of all my obsessing as I don't really talk with any of my women friends about it.

So- I just made an appointment with the RE (gynocologist) so that if I am not successful this cycle I can try an iui next time. Because she is super busy, my initial appointment with her is for after my next cycle ovulation- so I would have to sit a cycle out. And then try an iui in 2 cycles. But at least I am going to try something different. the receptionist said it is $200/ultrasound and I will need 2 ( or more maybe?!) plus $250 for the iui- and insurance doesn't cover it. Plus, I likely want to do at least 2 inseminations, plus the vials of sperm. Luckily- I think I can convince my lovely parents to pay for it as they know dh and I have been trying to pay for it all on our own so far, and they know how long it has been.

Anyway- I know now that the first hpt I posted was like- I don't know, dirt or something, I mean- there was pink on the bottom of it at first, but I did take it apart and handle it quit e abit.
Well, I feel a little bit better having made that appointment. Time does go fast and so - maybe I still have a chance this cycle- but if not, then at least hopefully this summer!

I know I ovulate and am okay- I think it is just frozen sperm and timing that make it so hard.

Katie,
Please stay hopeful... we're all hopeful for you! i was going to say what Skeeter said- i think that yesterday could have been implantation dip. it can take anywhere from 2-10 DPO to fully implant... maybe it was just looking for the perfect spot to settle in for a LONG and HEALTHY 9 mos!!!

This thread seems to be good luck this month.... so keep up hope!!

Holdensmom- WOOO HOOOO! Congrats! The digitals are the best, as long as you catch them at the right time... nothing worse than having a BFN all S-P-E-L-L-E-D O-U-T for you!!! (especially if you know it's not true!)

Lucy_v obsessing over everyone else is SO much easier!! and more fun, and fulfilling - looking at like 10 charts, hearing bfps all over the place- it's hopeful!

AFM - FF wants to tell me that I O'd on Monday... but i was AT THE RE on Monday, nad had a U/S and bloods... and i was NOT about to O. So, i had to over ride it, and hopefully I remember to change it back to "advanced" detection method after a few days. I dont know when O will happen, if it happens at all this cycle... so frustrating.

maybe i will invest in the CBFM... is it worth it if my cycles are all over anyway?

Hope everyone is having an extra fertile day... and for you girls in the TWW - stay sane!!!!

Maeryn Did you test today? Picture?! I don't see how you could not be, with those amazing temps and all those lines and all those symptoms. But I know what you mean wanting it to be confirmed already.

You are welcome!! I am doing fine....just hanging out, waiting to O. I am on CD7 and I will probably O in about 4 days. I have been Oing religiously on CD 11 for the past 3 mos...weird huh?? I have an appointment with my midwife on the 17th...I have a bunch of questions for her and I can't wait to go. I just want some reassurance and any other helpful advice she can give me. I love her and have been seeing her since I was 18. She delivered my son. So...I really trust her and she always makes me feel better!

congrats! Holden'smother

Holden'smama!
We should be DDC buddies...

Lucy v -- I hope to be an inspiration for women of "advanced maternal age" -- I hate that phrase!

Maeryn -- Hang in there!!! I saw lines on many of those photos! Really! Hold off on the 2nd digital. I was BFN at 9/10 DPO (depending how I count) and peed on 4 dollar store tests and FRER!
Just wait another couple of days! You sound/seem pregnant!!!

Yummyumyummama and Katie34 -- thank you!

I haven't told anyone IRL yet. Hubby is still sleeping.
I don't think I can hold out until Father's day!
I'm going to tell him this weekend...

MAE, sorry about that but it's still really early for you right?? Did you take any more $tree tests?? They do look like they are getting a tad darker to me. I look forward to seeing more from you!! Good luck!

LZP, looking at your December chart from when you were pg, you had negative OPKs, but obviously you O'd. I don't know how the RE checks for O, but is it possible they were wrong?

Mae, don't let it get you down. It's so early, and I definitely saw something on those other tests.

Yuck! It's still early though, and pp is right that the digitals are less sensitive. I got a stark white bfn on 8dpo and then faint lines on 10 and 11 dpo, so don't lose hope. Digitals are soooo painful when they don't give the result you want.
post #94 of 349
regarding the "advanced maternal age"thing- I hate that too! It seems a bit over done too, scaring women. I mean I am 36 and still ttc so I can't stand on a soapbox about it( But I am trying w- frozen sperm= much more difficult) but tons of my friends and my sister have had easily conceived healthy homebirthed (not my sister on the homebirth but yes on the easily conceived and healthy!) babies at 38, 39,40.

Thank you for the hope.... I dont know. It's hard to tell. I also lost that pg, so i wonder if i'm just releasing immature eggs.... that's sort of what RE alluded to.

They checked Estradiol, LH and did a U/S. the dominant follicle was not near an "ideal" size; est and LH were LOW. like really low.

i think when we conceived in December, i didnt do the OP strips on the day nearest O. (figures) i might just not have a HUGE surge, and still release. but earlier this cycle, i had higher LH numbers (darker line) early in the month, and now they are dull barely there. and i definitely didnt O.

i've got a defective body. any way I can return this without a receipt and get a replacement?

awww, don't say that! You're not defective. May I ask when and why you started seeing the RE? It looks from your signature like you conceived within 6 months of starting to ttc, and since having a m/c in March, I don't think it's unusual that you're not pregnant yet. (I'm in a similar situation, trying about as long, with a m/c in feb.)

Bringing it back to the obsessing over every little symptom thing- well, my sort of exhaustion-tiredness is back. I am trying to clean my very messy house and I keep going- woah, I am tired, must take a break. Back to it then.
