40+ TTC~FALLing over to get pregnant - Page 4

post #61 of 824
I am struck by all these dear posts. What a wonderful group of women.

MsGB and Halifax good to see you! MsGB sounds promising. Halifax, great to hear that your cycle is back to normal so quickly. Sounds like you have such a healthy, strong body. I don't like temping at the end either for the same reasons.

I am CD10 and having symptoms that aren't usual for this part of my cycle: nausea, sensitive nipples, and worst of all feeling super emotionally sensitive. I feel like I'm about to cry now and did last night. Yes, there are stressors in my life, but not beyond last week's. And yesterday I was impatient with ds and dh and yelled loudly a few times . VM, I remember you saying you had a few wonky cycles after you started TCM. Did it include this kind of stuff?

Adding to my confusion, I've been working with a homeopath for a few years on a constitutional remedy to address my asthma and tendency to get colds. He's found things that have helped, sometimes quite a bit, but we've still been looking for "the one." Well, he found a good contender recently and has sent it to me. This is a good window of time to take it in some ways, because I'm pre-O. You don't want to take a new one when pg--it's probably fine, but if something happened you'd never know. But, I feel like so much is going on with my body now with the TCM, it just seems like a bit much. I think I'd just wait, but if I do get pg, I'd sure like to have any help with my immune system coming into this winter. So :. Don't know if anyone would have any insight on that, but I thought writing about it might help.

No! But I only weaned my DS in the middle of May, so they haven't have a lot of time to shrink down. My bf'ing friends said it took up to a year for normalcy to return (and one said she was smaller than before : ) I've already told my DH to start saving up for breast reduction - I'll give it a year after I've weaned my last child, then if they are still huge, I'm having surgery. I can't go through life this big!

POASx2 this morning (one from early-pregnancy-tests.com and one from Dollar Tree). I'd swear there is a the faintest, just barely-there line on both tests, but I just don't trust my eyes at this point! How long do you have to squint for an imaginary line to show up??? And of course, now it's been long enough for evap lines to show up, so staring at them now won't help! Wht to do? Continue testing every day!

MsGB - glad to "see" you! Keeping my : for your good CM and donor mixture.

mm - thinking of you. What tests are you using? Do you know their sensitivity? : for you!

Waturmama - I"m sorry you are feeling so off I have no insight re: the homeopathy; wish I had something to share with you

They are the tests that come with the pre-seed

Just barely there line sounds promising, Karen! This past month when I got a BFN I was struck by how clearly there was no line and that was distinct from the just barely there line I saw the month before. This is with the pink tests. The blue have those pesky evap lines. They are different from lines, too, but it is more confusing. Anyway I'm sending lots of wishes for a darker line for you the next time. :

Wait, pink tests don't get evap lines? Hmmm....

15 dpo and just saw the faintest tinge to my CM when I wiped...looks like AF is simply going to start a few hours later the usual (normally kicks in in the morning). I often spot (just very faint tinging) the day before AF, when that didn't happen yesterday I did manage to allow myself a tiny bit of hope. It felt good to feel that, but it hurts so bad to have it dashed yet again....
Yet another cycle with "perfect" length and timing and no luck. I guess that despite being very healthy and having textbook predictible cycles, my eggs are simply feeling my 42 years...surely I must have one good one left???
Beautiful sunny day here, but hard to care at the moment.
Sorry for the gloomy post, will try to cheer myself and be thankful for what I have. I just needed to vent a little, some days are so hard.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

I went back and rechecked my chart to make sure I didn't have my dates wrong. Nope, I am really on cd 30.

Nah, get you a digital test, preferably the very sensative kind : More expensive but less nervewracking!

MM :

Halifax Hate AF We all have some gold eggs in there somewhere -

I'll be heading to Walgreen's shortly for a digital test...

BTW, MM, I've been using Internet cheapies. They showed very faint lines Fri and yesterday. The Dollar Store test showed a slightly darker, but still very visible, line yesterday (darker than the Internet tests, but not by much). Today on the Internet cheapie, line was faint but very evident. Definitely a line!

Halifax. That disappointment is so hard.

Meant to say, they are supposedly as sensitive as the First Response Early Result.

I am also still anemic and the midwife wants me to up my iron to 25 mg three times per day along with my prenatal. Yikes! I'm already pretty constipated!
Floradix! No constipation and better absorbed. But spendy I buy mine from vitacost.


Yay Karen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations

Hi to the new ladies.

Vegan you are still my inspiration.


Too busy and tired to catch up with everyone. I'm on CD9 and starting some CM hmmm seems like I may be back to normal. Cross your fingers ladies maybe this will be a normal cycle and we will stand a chance this month.

Gotta run getting the house ready for appraisal so we can refinance saving $1500.00 per month if it goes through. We really need thi so any good vibes you can send us are greatly appreciated.

I picked up my stuff from the table this morning after Sunday School and hugged my books to my chest and WOWZA! It was like electricity coursed through my boobs. Like a super dooper let down feeling. Totally weird!

Congrats Karen :

I may do that I am just so afraid to get another BFN
I think I have an Answer test here somewhere.
How long do I need to hold it. I am about to take a nap maybe I will test when I get up.
post #79 of 824
I would wait at least 3 hours, and don't drink anything. Can you go to the $ store? those are the most sensitive. Is the answer test a blue dye test? if so you might want to wait due to so many false positives, that would mess with your head.
