Yeah - it's crap.

Yep I should have 3 kids right now with another on the way. (Whew!) I suppose they would have overlapped, but whatever...DD#2 was a week ago. That DDC is busting with babies...live ones.

Had to talk to really to pop any minute SIL last night. She said her husband want to name the baby Hanish. (Hay-nish).
What? Sounds like a nickname for Hanious Anus. (That will be his wrestling name, I have it all mapped out...Oh! or a band!!) Or something that happens after you eat too many japalenos. I dunno, whatever, it's their kid, I guess.

Hey ladies! I'm back from a weekend back home visiting with family and friends and I am exhausted. We didn't sneak in quite as much sex as I would have liked, but oh well. My opk's are getting darker so hopefully I will O really soon. My stomach muscles all hurt from coughing so much with this cold I've had and now my ovaries are hurting too. When I lay down, I think I can even feel them right under my pubic bone. I responded really well to it last time too, so at least I knew what to expect.

And I feel ya on the 2nd babies being hurtful! There are a handful of friends I have that I was pregnant with you are already holding their 2nd little ones.

Yea, I have been lapped by all my friends who were pregnant when I had DS, who is now 2.5

Wasted three FRER tests, which cost $15.00! ugh. Could not stand it, so I tested yesterday afternoon = BFN. at 4 am this morning tested again because I had to pee really bad = BFFN! Tested again at 6:30am, ya know, just in case the 4 am was not officially first morning's pee = BFFFN. Ugh. I was almost sure this would be a BFP, since I am on 15 DPO, and I have only had a 15 day LP once before.

Hi Ladies-

I'm getting lapped, too... There are kids much younger than my daughter with baby siblings. I consul my myself with the thought that I never wanted kids 2 years apart anyway. Too close for me, one baby at a time, please. (Well, I wanted 3 years apart, but now it's going to be at least 4...)

'member the lady that wanted my maternity pants? Now I am being asked to bring a meal. I need to bring a dang meal... It's a small town... It's the right thing to do....

Samy, this thread is the TTC 6 months plus thread, renamed. Most of us are well over the 6 month mark, 12 month mark...Many have had multiple miscarriages, etc... Please join with care

Thanks for the welcome, I think I'll just lurk for a while. I'm about to start my 5th cycle, so Im almost at the 6 month mark.

Lurker becomes official

Can I please join you? I’ve been “lurking” here for about a week now (my usual two-week wait Googling frenzy led me to this site). It is so nice to hear from other ladies who are experiencing the same things that I am, and that I’m not as crazy as those around me make me feel. I am married to the sweetest man in the world (4 years in July) but he just doesn’t understand the bitterness that I feel and how consuming this is for me emotionally. We have been TTC #1 for about 14 months now (they all start to blur together after a while). We had one ectopic pregnancy in November, and the devastation was magnified (in my mind at least) because it took us so long to get there.
I have extremely regular 28 day cycles (except for being one day late in March…that was just a mean trick of nature!). HSG showed no blockages and normal uterus. Pre-Clomid Day 21 test result was 5.8. This past cycle my OBGYN had me take 50mg of Clomid on CD 5-9. My day 21 test result was a 5.1. This is so frustrating because I have all the classic O symptoms even before medication(EWCM, O pain, + OPK) but my progesterone level stinks. My OPK was + on CD 16. Could those 2 little days make a difference on the day 21 test? I haven’t done any temping yet, but I probably will start next cycle.
Thanks for listening!

Everyone is pg. EVERYONE. Except us. Sisters of friends, friends, random women that walk by me. It's all I see. It's like when you buy a car and suddenly that's the ONLY car you see on the streets.

I am however...THRILLED that one of my highschool friends is pg with her 3rd! She's on Mothering...she's the one that got me on here when I was pg with DS. But I've forgotten what her screen name is! EEK! I guess I better get to lookin!

InWaiting - I'm new here too. I'm on my 14th cycle, trying for #3... I think 2 days could make a difference in your progesterone numbers, but I wouldn't think it would be dramatic - 5 is a pretty low number. Are you trying to improve your progesterone with just the clomid? Have you talked to your Dr. about Progesterone supplementation? Are you having any other signs of prog deficiency? I have classic O signs, good temps with obvious shift, and my progesterone numbers were normal (14) at 7dpo, but I was having short LP and LP spotting... My Dr. put me on prog. supps just based on my symptoms and now my cycle is finally completely normal - I would definitely suggest trying the progesterone supps!

Jenger - glad to hear that your RE isn't too worried, that is encouraging. I hope your luck turns around soon!

Enigo and rcr -

AFM - I was away all weekend and I forgot to pack my thermometer, so I'm not completely sure when I o'd. I'm guessing I'm 5dpo today (that's what FF tells me based on the OPK method) Temp was well above my normal O level this morning (98.6) so I'm sure that I did O, just a matter of when. I hate the TWW, ugh!

Yea - everybody is pregnant, and everybody is wondering why I am not! My friends ask me all the time, and they have no idea how much pain it is causing me (my friends IRL have no idea that we have been ttc for over a year). My mom asks me every day when I am going to have another baby. I used to tell her that we are working on it, but she never remembers (short-term memory is gone). Now I just smile and change the subject. I wish I was pregnant so that I could see the happy look on her face when she finds out every day that I am pregnant, or when she meets the baby for the first time every day...

That is touching

Would you look at my stupid chart!? http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/26ca58
It is possible that I Oed on cd18 since the first two temps I have posted are made up otherwise FF wouldn't give me crosshairs. (I didn't start temping until just before O.) Depending on what those first two imaginary temps are, O was either 17 or 18. Anyhoo, all preg tests are -. I quit the progesterone cream yesterday. That's all I need..now the second part of my cycle is getting longer! AF should have been here today, but I ain't feeling it. Dahhh! Come on already so I can start over again!

Anyway sorry I know there are more important things going on in the world, but not by much!

It's possibly you O'd CD18. Hang in there, lady! Those last few days with progesterone are the worst, even if you stopped taking them, because they're still influencing you. Thinking of you!
post #157 of 582
Enigo - I do think it looks like you O'd on CD 18 - the temp rise is much more pronounced on day 19 (although I guess that's hard to tell for sure since the first two temps aren't real ) Also, I think it's more likely to O the day after you get a +OPK (although I have had a cycle where all signs pointed to O on the same day as +OPK so it is possible, I guess).

Oh and I have a love/hate relationship with my prog. supps. I love that it gives me a normal LP but I hate that I get my hopes up because I don't react consistently to it every month. 1st month I took the last supp morning of 14dpo, AF started in the morning. Second month AF started in the morning of 15dpo despite taking supp the previous evening. Leading me to believe that prog. wouldn't hold AF off past 14dpo... Then this month I stopped the prog the same time as last month (evening of 14dpo) and didn't start spotting until 16dpo! There seems to be no rhyme or reason to how my body reacts to progesterone.

Enigo: and and and I'm sorry things are throwing your for a loop

Jennifer and rcr: yes, EVERYONE is pregnant!! and this month seems to be full of babies being born as well! ugh, kill me why don't they?!!

Jenger: I like the sound of your RE... I always like being reminded that its ok to take a bath and have a little coffee in the morning... without stressin'

Tear:

Rochelle: sorry to hear about your cough. I used to get bronchial stuff quite often and I know how sore the belly can get. hope you O soon and catch that egg!!!

Samy: nice to have you and hope you don't stay long....

Inwaiting: welcome... again, nice to have you and hope you are in and out.

MF:

MP: I'm thinking of you: your baby, your weddin', your move!! all so exciting!!!!!

AFM: i think I oed... or rather had some ewcm for a few days and now have creamy... boobs don't hurt which is unusual for after O. either I didn't really O or I did and I'm pregnant! I'm REALLY hoping I'm pregnant.... If I get to the 2 year mark (which is ONE more cycle after this one) I WILL NOT F'IN' BELIEVE IT!!! and I will
but for now I'm and

I am so nervous. This is the second cycle that I'm using progesterone with. I think last time it may have lengthened my cycle one or two days. But one or two days longer at the end when you know you're not pregnant is TERRIBLE!!!

I'm with ya.....hoping my LP doesn't get TOO much longer (I actually have a "normal' LP...yet still I can't seem to stay pregnant..ugh.
