Congrats Sarah!!  HH9 months to you!

Congrats Sarah and to all the others who have gotten BFPs since I last checked in, which has been awhile. 

 

My partner and I took the last cycle off and therefore I didn't really do a good job of keeping up my chart. I was really sick around when I usually ovulate so it was hard to see when/if? I ovulated because of my really high fever temps during my fertile time.  Then I just stopped temping, since we weren't trying.  My man was having some serious concerns regarding money and his challenges finding a job but just within in the last month he has gotten several promising leads and just got hired for contract work today!  So I imagine we are on for our next cycle!  However he is going to be traveling for a week so I really hope his trip doesn't happen during my entire fertile window! Or else we won't be able to try next cycle either, AHH!  Please move me to waiting for AF

Well, I'm definitely out.... gloomy.gif  There's no bouncing back from that temp drop. AF will be here tomorrow. *sigh*

 

 

Music, I appreciate the offer to take over the thread next week. I'm getting burnt out, for sure.... and I think I might need a little break from this TTC stuff. :(

Sarah – That’s a fantastic line for 9dpo!!!  Yay!!!!

 

TTCCorC – Sorry about the BFN.  But you’re right, you aren’t out yet! 

 

MelungeonMW – Congrats on your DPs contract work and promising job leads!  In this economy, that’s a great thing! 

 

A2E – So sorry about the temp drop.  I was really hoping to see a bounce back for you this morning. 

 

AFM – Can I be moved to Waiting to Know/2WW?  I had a good temp jump this morning, so I’m sure I O’ed sometime late Sunday night or early yesterday morning (only saying that because I had pains up until bedtime on Sunday, but none noticeable yesterday).  Let the obsessing begin…

post #48 of 194

Congratulations Sarah!!!

 

Jeri -- so sorry about the temp drop! :(  I really hoped you'd get your Christmas-time BFP.  BIG :hug

 

TTCCOC -- BOOOO for BFN.  But, as you know, it ain't over till she shows....

 

AFM: 8 DPO.  No symptoms really.  Been pretty tired the last couple of days and have had lots of creamy CM, but that seems to happen most months.  No cramping, twinges or anything down there to speak of, but, I also haven't been obsessing about it like I usually do.  Basically just waiting for AF to show.  My attitude this month is horrible. :(

Hi everyone.. I'm on CD 5 right now. Could you Move Me To Waiting To O

 

Congrats Sarah!

 

Good luck this month everyone!

Congrats Sarah!!!!

 

AFM - AF is finally out of here, CD 9 and not much going on. We are in the middle of a huge snowstorm here which started yesterday while I was at my uncle's funeral. I love it! The snow hasn't yet gotten all brown so everything is all pretty and white and I got to walk to work this morning (the only reliable method of transportation in this weather - it's only about a 25 min walk) and laugh at all the cars stuck in the snow while I was walking. :)

Morning, ladies.

 

Sorry, A2E. =(

 

AFM: AF still isn't here, but I tested - again this morning with FMU. My boobs are still killing me though. I had some minor cramps last night, so I expected to start this morning, but... Nope. Do you think the B-Complex could have lengthened my cycle???

post #52 of 194

Wonderful news, Sarah! How are you feeling?

TTCCorC, Fingers crossed over here for you. I wish I had been so aware about my body when I was your age!

 

Attached2Elijah, Glad to hear  you are on the mend!

 

So, I did not have the dr. with the best bedside manner ever at the ob/gyn today. But he ordered tests (Estradiol, FHS, LH, TH, HcG, Prolactin, and possibly one other I'm forgetting). Results will come in in 2-7 days. GREAT, because I am so good at waiting right now. Seriously, I have been waiting to get my period for 1.5 YEARS at this point. I am officially that 0.1% of women who is super sensitive to prolactin. Basically he said if the levels are normal, he'll give me something to jump-start my cycles. He was noncomittal about what happens if they're NOT normal. It seems like in that case I just have to wait. I think I'm going to insist on some action if I don't see any impending signs that my body is going back to normal by the time the test results come back. Either way, at least I'll now what is going on. I'm feeling really discouraged, even though it's unfounded - chances are this is just what my body is like. But I don't want this huge gap between kiddos and would like to have the option to have more than another one before I reach 35. AND, during fall-spring 2011/12 I can be home with a baby, after that I have to go back to work.

 

Any chance wanting to break down and cry right now is a good hormonal sign?!

Yeah I am more or less in the same boat.  But havent tested since saturday morning at 10dpo.  I think AF is coming tomorrow it feels like it.  Cramping and what not.  MY boobs have been aching since saturday - so unfair that never happened when I wasn't ttc!!  EVER!!!!

I hope your cycles level out soon, or that you get some good answers for the dr!!

Oh honey, I had such high hopes hug2.gif  (I'm still such an optimist though - maybe you slept with your mouth open? gloomy.gif)

 

And just give me a "yell"...  I haven't been on much the last few days because I've been so so so busy - but last night was the final performance for the year, so I'm good to go!  Mmm...  maybe you just need a break from being here so much, rather than the actual ttc (these last few days for me have been quite peaceful, because I'm not obsessing quite so much on behalf of so many people as I do when I check in regularly!).  

Hope you feel brighter and more positive soon hug2.gif

My cramps are totally gone and they were only minor last night and didn't last very long. I'm really wondering if the B-Complex is to blame... Hm. Which I wouldn't be mad, because a 26-day cycle isn't good enough for me. =D I'd prefer a longer one anyways. I mean, a pregnancy would be AWESOME, don't get me wrong, but I'm just being real right now. LOL

Thanks :) Actually, I'm okay now... I was able to take some stronger pain meds for my knee that is still hurting thanks to that fall on the ice so that makes me happy... and I've got a nice bottle of Riesling chilling for tonight for my new best friend, Big Bob... hes' a HUGE wine glass (a la 'Cougar Town') that I shall initiate into the family tonight. I think AF would be much easier to face if I had good things to look forward to like this. I just needed a few hours to bum out. I keep forgetting I didn't really want an August baby anyway ... so this is a good thing. If I get AF tomorrow, I'll O on Christmas day! That could be INCREDIBLY romantic ... under the Christmas tree and all or it could be incredibly stressful. Should be interesting to see how that plays out! LOL!

 

I actually did a good job not obsessing this cycle until yesterday when I THOUGHT my temp was going to rebound... but really, I didn't have that much hope for this cycle anyway so it didn't take much time to bounce back. I'm ready to go for another cycle... and I haven't even started AF, lol.

 

Now the question is.... is 3pm too early for a glass of wine? :-D

TTCCorC - Yep, B-Complex could have totally lengthened your cycle - it took my LP from 12 to 14 days, so that could be it.  I'm still hoping that you're just a late tester, though, and you'll be getting a BFP very soon! 

 

gozal - That stinks that your doctor didn't have a good bedside manner - that's one of the reasons I switched docs.  But at least you'll have some answers in a few days.  My fingers are crossed that all your results will come back normal, and you'll just need something like Provera to jumpstart your system.  Keep us posted!

Never :)

post #60 of 194

AF has started full force.... on day 10 of this pack of pills. ARGH! I'm debating just stopping the pill right now and seeing what happens. Ideally I would get pregnant this cycle and not have to worry about AF during our wedding/honeymoon... but being realistic I have to figure out if I want to stop the pill and risk AF during our wedding/honeymoon or keep taking this pack and risking AF starting during our wedding/honeymoon. Hmmmm.... neither seem to be a great option. LOL!
