Hello, I'd like to join in this thread as I get ready to TTC #2. innocent.gif I'm Marina, I'm 33 and DS is 2 days short of 1. It took me 2.5 years of not preventing and active TTC to get DS earthside. I have hypothyroidism (it's being corrected though) and DH has borderline low count and motility. Currently I'm sort of avoiding and charting my fertility signs since AF returned (although I haven't started temping again). I'd like to get a BFP second half of this year, but if the choice is between siblings closer together or not at all I choose the first option, and whatever may be may be. I'm hopeful though because my cycles have been really regular with lots of EWCM since AF came back. fingersx.gif

Thanks for the new thread marmo  blowkiss.gif

 

Welcome Marina wave.gif

 

 

CD8 here, so nothing to report...  the most excitement I'm having at the moment is trying to decide whether or not to discard my CD6 temp because it's completely out of the norm.  lol.gif

post #4 of 47

Hi ladies! After taking some time off from TTC, I'm back. My cycle has been incredibly weird this cycle. I posted another thread about it, but here is what's going on:

 

I stopped temping a couple of months ago. I needed a break and it was making me a bit crazy. I sort of new when I'd be Oing, so just kept it in mind. My last cycle started Nov 13. I was supposed to get AF Dec 13, but didn't. I got BFNs for 2 weeks. I tested again on Dec 31, and BFN. Before I went to bed after NYE, I went to the bathroom and my underwear had blood on them (not just spotting, but enough that I have to soak them). I thought that AF was finally here, so I put on a pad. The next morning, I wake up, and nothing! No AF until now. Still no AF. This is VERY unusual for me.

 

I decided to take a FRER test yesterday and thought I saw a line, but wasn't sure. Took another today, and same thing. Oh I also started temping again on Jan 1. My temps have been going up.

 

So, what do you think? Was that implantation? What would be going on with my cycle?

Welcome, Marina, and happy new year to everyone!!

 

Musicoholic- I tried to chart this month again, but once again gave up, because dd is just up at different times.  my temps were all over the place.  Maybe I will try again next month. 

 

and Emma!  It sounds like a bfp to me!!  dust.giffor a sticky little bean!!!  What a fantastic way to start the year, huh?

 

I am in the 2ww, but am not sure when I o'ed.  Which is good, because it sorta forces me to wait to poas.  I am really really going to try to wait until after af is late.  We'll see.  I know I am probably going to regret saying this, but I feel good about this cycle.

Thank you for the welcome ladies! Hoping for lots of BFPs for everyone in 2011. goodvibes.gif
Emma - it sounds BFPish to me as well. I think strange bits of blood are not unusual early in pregnancy - implantation is one reason. Fingers crossed for you.

AFM - AF is just ending. This is my 3rd? cycle PP. I haven't been temping but am tracking CM and CP and the signs seem pretty unambiguous. My PP AFs have been a lot less painful than before DS. Yay! I used to spend a day doubled up in bed and now I barely notice. joy.gif Next cycle I'm still going to TTA but it's so tempting to BD when the EW shows up (and of course the hormones make me horny orngtongue.gif )
DS is 1 today - I can't believe I have a 1 year old. We're firmly on the road to extended BF (DS gets 80% of his nutrition from BF) and I'm worried about cutting our relationship short with pregnancy. I do miss having a little squishy newborn though.
Ok, gotta go declutter my house. orngbiggrin.gif

Happy New Year ladies!

 

I got my first AF post miscarriage and am on CD 3. We are not trying this month, but I decided to start charting again. Im getting some other health issues addressed and want to do a fertility cleanse this month as well. I tell ya between the M/C and this AF which is SOOOOOOOO heavy (I guess from being post MC), I am so frikin tired of bleeding AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! (sorry rant over!)

Hugs. That first one after a MC is the pits.
 

I would caution on doing a fertility cleanse right now. Winter along with Summer is a restorative time. Your body is trying to heal/replenish itself. The best time for doing any kind of cleanse is in the Fall and Spring. If you want to say make sure to flush out and clear out gently, try drinking 2-3 cups of Red Rasberry leaf tea a day along with some Nettle leaf tea. These are restorative herbs for the female system.  Just my $0.02

Hi all. My name is Gretchen ad I am on CD10. Feeling that OV is right ahead. I am going full tilt this cycle with using saliva ferning, Ovultion test strips, and my temping. I am combining all of this with Accupincture and SOT Chiropractic care.

 

Fingers crossed for everyone this cycle and hoping we get a few BFP's

 

Abrazos

post #10 of 47

Well here's my update...I don't really have one. Still getting weird results. I'm thinking they're BFN, but am going to the OB tomorrow to check and see what is going with my cycle.

post #11 of 47

Can I join in?  Yesterday after reading a few threads and feeling rather bold, I removed my paragard IUD.  My husband is leaving for deployment next month and it just felt like the right thing to do.  I’ve had it since soon after DD was born (01/08) so I  haven’t been keeping good track of my cycles.  In assuming a 32 day cycle (which is what I had when TTC #2) and that nothing was changed with the IUD, the fun we had before the kids woke up this morning may have been more productive than normal!  If not, we’ve got one more cycle before he leaves to give it a shot.  

 

Off to read though the thread and get familiar with everyone!

Can I join this thread?  I'll be 35 in March, have a 3 yr old boy and DH and I have just decided to ttc #2.

Welcome, Mindfulmomma, amberbella, and mamajamie!  Sorry I it took me a minute to update, dd has been a little under the weather, which means she hasn't been sleeping, which means I am a zombie.

 

Getting excited to hear that some of us got bfps!  Good luck, everyone!

Hi all- CD 14 Temp drop and then spike today. That along with a positive OPK sticks day before yesterday...I have ovulated and am in the 2ww. Finger seriously crossed for this one to shake and bake. I will wait to test until at least 16 DPO.

 

I wish I knew how to link my chart to this post. I use TCOYF and I left their site b/c it was just a mess after they did a big format change over

post #19 of 47

yep....however I feel doing this cleanse now vs nothing at all is the way to go. My ND looked over all the ingredients and advised me to do it. I don't have the luxery of waiting until the spring to TTC again, but thanks for the feedback :)

Well, af isn't here quite yet, but will be in a couple days.  Pretty sure this month was a bust, too.  Took a frer and nada.  In fact, there's a negative line.  Like where the line would be, it's actually lighter than the on the rest of the result window wink1.gif.  I think on next cd1 I am calling to set up a saline shg and see if there's anything to see inside, and talk to the dr about what else we can start to look at.  it will be cycle 10 for us.  Is that being too worried?  I feel like we're missing something, and I wanna fix it.  good luck to everyone!!
