Gemmine, Hoki - sorry AF found you hug2.gif

 

I just wanted to share this article that someone had posted on a different thread. It's hard to be patient and always living in the unknown and this article had some things that I really needed to remember about this journey. I hope you enjoy it too!

Sorry AF found you, hokievol & Gemmine

 

hokievol, when I started taking supplements to lengthen my LP it got longer by 1 day at a time over the course of a few months... these supplements often take 3-6 months to have their full effect. So 1 day longer in the first month is a step in the right direction!

 

Zyon'sMommy - so sorry to hear about your mom. Me and my siblings have known for a long time that my parents only meant to have 3 kids and that my youngest sister (the 4th) was an accident. Knowing that is one thing, but one time my mom actually told my youngest sister to her face that she wished my sister had never been born... which so mean! My sister was crushed! Anyways I really think my mom is going through some sort of mid-life crisis, or maybe its just menopause, cause she has been acting really awful for the past few years.

 

AFM - I went to my weekly acupuncture appointment last night. It seems like the worse I feel going into an acupuncture treatment, the better I feel after. Yesterday I was in such a horrible mood, and after acupuncture I was the best mood ever! It was such a wonderful feeling. Unfortunately my good mood hasn't entirely carried over to today, I'm pretty irritable again.

I just finished reading this article and it was GREAT! I think its really going to help me! One part that I think I am going to use a lot is picturing that need for control as a fist inside me and then picturing myself releasing each finger one by one and letting go.

My mother was never so openly nasty, but she did have a part in convincing my then partner to continue holding off on having kids when I was in my mid-late twenties, and on into my thirties. I cannot forgive her for that, though she has been gone now for over 6 years.

 

Spicy did not show up last night. But I lucked into an after midnight session with a new donor. By then my CM was thick and creamy, but I used some Preseed, put in an Instead Cup, and crossed my fingers that the egg was still floating down my tubes!

Ever since I read it last night I have been doing that every time I feel the tight feeling of anxiety about TTC. I think about it and have more anxiety than I thought I did! I also really liked the affirmation "I set my intention, I hold my vision, then I release myself to a wiser plan." I have been repeating it in my head and put it where I can see it smile.gif also "the timing is perfect". Glad you thought it was as great as I did!

Vivica... I will want to see 2 days of decreasing temps before I am willing to believe you are out for the month! I've seen plenty of ladies with a huge temp drop have their temps rebound the next day and end up getting BFPs! I will be anxiously stalking your chart tomorrow morning to see what happens!

post #88 of 113

Vivica2...   LOL I just use those nicnames here, though I did tell Spicy his. The new one is Softy, so you can maybe understand why I don't usually share them with the guys?! LOL

 

And thank you, but it has nothing to do with self confidence, it is sheer desperation!!! I would rather have a loving relationship like most of you here, and have regular access to the same source of sperm. But unfortunately I don't have that, nor do I have the option of waiting until that happens. So, while it may look exciting from the outside, from here it is mainly frustrating. LOL

 

That or be able to go the AI route, but sadly that is well beyond my means.

 

Toes crossed for a June conception for you!!

post #89 of 113

writinglove - Congratulations!!

 

Thanks for the welcomes, ladies! I haven't been on FF this cycle, as I had a miscarriage in March, and hadn't had a period yet to start a new one. greensad.gif

 

 

As far as my cycle goes now, my cervix felt high and soft and there was fertile CM on Mother's Day weekend. So... that would put me at 11 DPO now. I spotted all day yesterday (brown), and today there was some bleeding throughout the morning. The bleeding freaked me out and I thought it was possibly AF. But the bleeding has all but gone away now, so perhaps implantation after all?

I had a few days of spotting/bleeding at implantation last time, so I am hopeful!

 

I want to test so badly, but I know it's still early. I am considering getting a Dollar Store test tomorrow morning, just so that I won't waste a more expensive one on a probable BFN!

It appears I may be trying to O again...wish me luck redface.gif

Sila - I'm sending some ovulation vibes your way! goodvibes.gif

 

BubbleMa - So sorry AF found you. Hugs to you. hug2.gif

 

AFM - Still no sign of O for me, my OPKs are stark white negative. My normal O date is still 2-3 days away so no surprise there. I'm actually hoping I O 1 day later than usual (on CD 18 instead of CD 17), which would be next Tuesday. If I do, my due date will be exactly February 14th joy.gif! That date is special not only because its Valentine's day, but because its also my Dad's birthday and I know he will be crazy happy to have his first grandchild ever (my dad is way more supportive than my mom about the whole TTC thing). I have already planned out in my head how I would announce to him what his birthday present is going to be if I get my BFP this month :)

post #93 of 113

SilaMaria...   I hope you lay an imediately fertilized egg! LOL

 

Sourire...   Awww! That sounds really sweet! Just remember giving birth on the actual due date is not a certainty.

post #94 of 113

Just a quick update - we found a workaround for my insurance issue! But, still no Clomid this cycle because my baseline u/s on cd4 already showed a dominant follicle. That's fine by me, I actually am happy to try a natural cycle this month and feel good knowing what the plan is for next month if nothing happens.

 

Fingers crossed for everyone! Have a fun weekend, guys!

post #95 of 113

I just wanted to leave a note since I checked in today and read all 94 posts!

 

grouphug.gif Hugs to those AF found, I was pulling for you all! Hopefully the February DDC will be full of 'One Thread' Ladies!

 

Congrats to MommyM and writinglove love.gif GL with your first appointments!

 

I'm following everyone else but don't have time for personals. I'll drop in again next week! goodvibes.gifBaby dust to you all!

CD2 Now...Please move me to Waiting to O. Thanks!

 

hug2.gif Gemmine, BubbleMa and Hokie. Mean AF..

 

Bremen I totally feel you. I waited 6 months before I was able to work and I lost my mind with boredom! I suggest getting out and exploring while you have the opportunity and the free time! Hopefully the visa comes through soon, though. Thinking of you..

 

BubbleMa No, I haven't really considered getting a second opinion. As it is, I pretty much have two opinions. My dr gave me the PCOS diagnosis, and mentioned the possibility of endometriosis but she didn't think it was likely. The specialist I am seeing comes highly recommended in my area. She is the most qualified OB/GYN / Fertility Speciailist on the coast where I live, the head of a fertility clinic, and has worked in the industry for 30 years. I'm also very happy with her. She also believes PCOS is likely, but is having me do a few more blood tests to make sure. Pending the endo diagnosis, she isn't pressuring me at all into the surgery - just being upfront about that being her likely recommendation. 

 

Good news Gozal, how exciting to have a dominant follicle naturally!

 

Good luck Sila!!

Congrats to MommyM and WritingLove!!! I'm so happy for you both!

 

I've missed a lot in the past two weeks, but I just took a time out. I don't know how much I'll be on still, but wanted to see how everyone is doing. I still have no news. No AF, but yesterday I started my second round of spotting. I have the EXACT same symptoms as the last round of spotting, so that is weird because I've never had these symptoms before when AF is getting near. But, last time, the spotting lasted three days and then nothing at all. Today is day two of spotting, so we will see what happens.

 

I'm just ready for a new cycle, this CD58 stuff is just a bunch of crap. If I'm not going to O or get pregnant, then I'd rather just have a freaking period. I'll check back in with you guys soon!

 

Good luck to everyone!!dust.gif

Shelley - maybe you are just having one of those random anovulatory cycles that some people get every one in a while. Hopefully your new cycle starts soon and everything is back to normal at that point!

 

AFM - It's a long weekend! Yay! My project this weekend is to create an album with all our wedding photos and stuff. I've been putting it off for so long, and now I have a 3 day weekend and DH is working so its the perfect time for this kind of project!

post #99 of 113

Hi everyone. I have loved reading all of your stories, tips, and advice. We just started trying to have #2 for me, #1 for dh. My hormones have been a mess the past couple of years, so I've got no idea what kind of adventure we're in for. I'm going to see if I can find a thermometer tonight so I can chart. My daughter (who is 5) was conceived cd7 (last day of AF), and I was completely in shock because I didn't even know that was possible.

 

After she was born, I had a mirena inserted. When my period returned 8 months later, I started having periods every 2 weeks (one may have been ovulation bleeding, but the amount and length was about the same) . I didn't have health insurance at the time, so I just dealt with it for a couple of years until I could get my mirena removed. I found out it had gone through my uterine wall, and I had to have it surgically removed from my abdomen. Once I got back on the pill after that things regulated. I was abstinent during the entire time I had my mirena, and I really don't know what kind of effect the hormones had, or how much made it into my system.

 

This is my first cycle non-pill cycle. My AF lasted 7 days, and I'm day 9 right now. I'm really curious to find out when I ovulate because of my daughter's conception. This morning my CM was EW, so it's possible I ovulate early I guess.

 

I would love to be added to the list :) Waiting for O

post #100 of 113

Hi all, I hopped over to this thread, from the Nursing Mamas one, because I was looking for some bfps to encourage me to get through this cycle (congrats to the mamas-to-be!)... time is going sooooooo slooooooooow.  I'm only CD14, waiting to O, and I'm thinking it will be a few days yet--seems to be my new normal since having my DS, along with short luteal phases!  :(  If things are going this slow, I can't imagine what the 2ww will be like. 

 

Sourire, how are you doing now with the clomid side effects?

 

Also, can anybody tell me is a few short words how to do a signature?  I'm so exhausted from not getting enough consecutive hours of sleep because of my DS wanting to marathon nurse for the second half of the night, I can't begin to figure out where to start looking for instructions!
