Callie: do you know that for sure? I'd call the nurse maybe there is something you can do.

Callie - I wash I was there to give you a *BIG* ! You sound really discouraged, and I can understand where you're at. I hope you don't leave the boards very long, I will miss you so much .

Your high temps is very encouraging, despite the bleeding. Can I ask why you stopped the progesterone? It could be causing the bleeding. Hope you can get in and see a RE about this. It would be driving me absolutely insane month after month.

Lots of 's Callie. Feel free to PM me anytime .

How many DPO do y'all normally test for a BFP? Just before your period? Day of? The waiting is the hardest part! Trystan is just as nervous as I am....
Well, I usually start testing at 10DPO, and keep testing til AF shows up.

I stopped the progesterone b/c I didn't think it was helping. I had also done some stupid google searching, and read that some people spot on progesterone b/c they have a senstive cervix. Well, I definitely have a sensitive cervix, I've known that since my last pregnancy. So I figured I might as well stop taking it b/c I know my progesterone levels are fine.

Unfortunately, my nurse at the birth center is at a conference this week. I don't think anyone there would be able to help me with this.

I DO have another progesterone suppository here, and I have a refill available. Do you think I should get it refilled and see if it helps? I just don't know what to do.

Stupid Google! What a curse sometimes, I tell ya! I would try going back on it to see if it helps. It couldn't hurt, and then you can see if the bleeding stops again to have a record of it.

So I went ahead and called the birth center and talked to the other nurse. She said starting progesterone now likely wouldn't help. I feel like I completely ruined our chance this cycle. I'm so glad I'll be seeing an RE on Friday. I really need to work with someone who deals with crazy bodies like mine on a regular basis.

Oh Callie, I'm so sorry! I hope you gets answers on Friday, and get a plan of attack to conquer this mess .
post #228 of 269
Hugs Callie. I can hear the frustration and sadness in your posts. I felt the same way about leaving the boards the last time I was TTC. I actually did leave for a month. Then when I came back, I got preggo right away. So I totally understand wanting to go. Hopefully the RE can shed some light on what is going on with you.

slinkyfish-any updates?

AAM-I believe I am 1dpo. I didn't have much EWCM, but we used pre-seed the last 3 times we BD, and we've BD a lot this week. We only missed one day, so hopefully, it works and I get a BFP in about 10-12 days! My temps are all over the place though, so that makes me a bit worried.

Thanks Mama~Love... I'm off to run my happy butt to get some EPT's for tomorrow morning... Hopefully all the baby tangoing went somewhere. LOL

I'm at cd 12. I got my period while on my work trip. aargh. It's been crazy here since returning. I'm starting my OPK's tomorrow. It's going to be a busy weekend with my parent's 40th wedding anniversary and a friend's wedding. Lots of friends and relatives in town.

Hi!

I'm signing in here, although we aren't officially TTC until August. I thought I'd sign in because I'd like to get to know everyone beforehand.

I am 25 and we will be TTC baby #3. Exciting times ahead!

E, mama to DS (6) and DD (2)

and it's practically August you must be excited.

Michelle: Sound like a crazy weekend to fit in ttc, but you can do it! It's fun to be sneaky about it.

Callie: Thinking about you this morning, another high temp I see

Emma: Congrats on entering your 2ww. We did the pre-seed this time around too, I really liked it and I normally hate lube. Here is to waiting

Vanessa: Hope you get your CH today, You have the dreaded slow rise temps, I had last month, ff doesn't like those.

AFM: Got my CH today, Yeah!!!
post #233 of 269
As of this morning, FF still has not registered O. Maybe I'll get ym CH tomorrow or the day after.
post #234 of 269
Hmm. I was trying to post on the 20-something thread. Whoops! Thanks for the welcome though!!!
post #235 of 269
Did the EPT today... BFN. I am trying to say positive for a BFP, but waiting is driving me nuts!

And, while I am keeping happy thoughts in mind, if I do get AF, I am going to start charting so that way I know what's going on for next month. I'm also new to charting, so any great "Idiot's Guide to Charting" resources you have would be totally rockin' and greatly appreciated.

WaitWaitWaitWait....

Well, starting another cycle (AKA AF is here .) I just ordered some OPKs and will start temping tomorrow. I guess I'm getting serious now. Also, I'm stopping my self-prescribed progesterone cream. And maybe next month I'll actually go see an MD to have my thyroid levels tested--I am a few months overdue for that.
post #237 of 269
I guess I belong here too. I'm on CD 7 and charting and doing OPKs for the first time (well, not OPKs yet, but you know what I mean). I got pretty obsessive last month and it caught me by surprise. The first time around I didn't obsess but now I keep thinking that DD will already be 4.5 for #2 if we get pregnant this cycle. There were reasons for delays but well...
post #238 of 269
Callie -- So sorry that you are getting such mixed signals from your body. I wish everything was just textbook, and our bodies were all predictable. Hang in there -- and I am so happy that you are seeing an RE this Friday. It is nice to know there is a specialist trying to decipher your cycle with you. I am always grateful to have a doctor on board who is tracking with me -- makes me feel like I don't have to be the doctor (a role I seem to take on with the help of Google also...dangerous!)

Sigh. I'm out this month. I don't know if I just got a false positive test, or I was indeed, momentarily, pregnant. Either way, I have had a truckload of BFNs and the heaviest AF in months. So...back to the drawing board. I feel foolish saying this, but I really thought that we would have been preggo by now. It's only been three months, but I was totally certain. Remind me that it can take longer and still be totally normal.

My thyroid and day21 progesterone came back normal, so no clues there. Just waiting it all out....

Hello all - new to this forum and joining the thread - was a big lurker on Mothering a few years ago when my girls (I have two) were babes - now ready to try for three. Had a disheartening chemical pregnancy last week and now struggling to decide what to do next. Started charting on Monday...
