I know, I know! But tomorrow? 1 per day starting tomorrow? Do you prefer testing Fmu? That's super soon- tomorrow morning! Or tomorrow evening? I think the only argument against testing now, for me, is I think it has got to be bad for the eyes-- I go cross eyed trying to see something that's not there!! But I'm totally with you tomorrow am!
Trying to Conceive #2 - Page 39
Ok. I am going to put TMI out there just to let you all know right now, lol. I have had some issues lately ..finding out I have a thyroid issue. I take a VERY low dose of levothryoxine and have been on it for about a month. I had a month long menstral cycle. and went to the Doc (did testing and found out I had a high tsh level) now since being on the med the cycles leveled out to a regular 6-7 day. well I am spotting (I though I might have been pregnant =( but now it's a everyday spotting for the past three days. I JUST got over a cycle about 5 days ago. I am getting really depressed. Does anyone have an experience with this type of issue and TTC #2??? or even with the #1 baby???
jpack- I didn't read this fast enough darn it. I failed and tested (of course BFN), I haven't decided if I want to do FMU or evening yet. But I will probably do FMU because I can't wait any longer lol.
Samantha- I'm sorry I am no help. If all else fails I would call your doc and see if they have any advice.
Jpack and John16n33- I hope you guys are feeling better.
SamanthaC1--I'm sorry I don't have any experience but I hope you find answers.
I am a little bummed and confused this AM. I thought maybe I had "symptoms" but they seem to have disappeared. Also, I broke down and took another hpt and BFN. When I checked my cervix this morning I had a little red blood on the tip of my finger and yesterday I had tan colored CM. I don't know what is going on. AF is not due to at least Friday.
Good morning! Samantha, I've got nothing for you. I would ask though whether you take any supplements. If you don't take a B-complex or vitex, those are two ideas. I'd keep working closely with your doc, esp if if you trust him/her. Good Luck!
John16n33, I tested this AM. BFN. Duh. Bleh. I have to repeat the progesterone blood draw tomorrow, I was kinda hoping to have a reason to ask for an HCG beta! I Hope you're feeling better! I usually am truly sick for 9-10 days with every virus, but this one was short for both me and DD! Wooohoo!! I think it gets more stressful to test as time goes on and BFNs take on more significance.
Bummer, Simonsez, if it's a short LP and not implantation! Do you chart? Sorry, I could go look in past posts - but I'm gonna ask instead! If so, any chance you Oed earlier than expected? It's also possible maybe the bleeding is from your cervix? I'm sorry if it is AF!
AFM looks like this cold really was puny! (Knock on wood!) But, FWIW, I am totally NOT optimistic about this cycle any more. I had felt really positive last week. But no symptoms and BFNs have got me down. This is super-dumb, and is probably just em looking for a way to blame myself, but I went for a big run on Sunday - really pushed it. I kinda feel like that was a mistake. :( Last LP, with the positives, I had been more gentile with myself. Oh well - I really needed that run!
jpack- BFN over here as well, I am trying not to read to much into though. I am only 6 DPO so a BFP at this point would kind of be a miracle. I am glad you are feeling better! I am feeling slightly better but not 100%. I think I might try to take a nap with the munchkins again today.
Simonsez- How many DPO are you? Is it still early enough that it could be implantation spotting?
AFM- I still have this cold, although it is not nearly as bad as it was the other day. I have been popping cold-eaze every chance I get. So far still not many symptoms. I have had some nausea and some weird cramping, but both of those could be caused by the cold. I did wake up this morning so some soreness in my boobs but I get that every month. I didn't sleep well last night at all. I woke up at one point in so much pain, it was like a giant cramp in my stomach and back. I tried popping my back, going to the bathroom, changing positions, nothing helped. Finally it faded away and I fell back asleep about an hour and a half later.
Jpack-I don't chart. I probably should but I am just to darn lazy. I am pretty sure I O'd on the 28th just by CM and Cervix being soft and open that day. That would put me at 10dpo so there is still a chance I guess. I tested early with my other two so that is why I am doubting now.
John16n33- There is a chance it could be implantation but I am feeling kind of crampy today like AF. The witch would be early for me as I have fairly regular cycles but the BFN's have got me down.
Well I tested this morning and at 7dpo it was another BFN, on top of that FF decided to change my O date from 2/1 to 2//5 for some reason. TCOYF has kept it at 2/1, though. I guess I will just wait and see what these next few days tests show. How did your test come out this morning, Jpack?
Ugh I just checked my TCOYF chart to add some things like cramping and breast tenderness. Somehow when I decided to add those TCOYF has decided that I have not ovulated yet either. I am frustrated because I know I have! I don't get breast tenderness unless I have o'd and my temps show a thermal shift. I think the problem is that I keep getting creamy cm.
Jpack--Eh still not very optimistic. No AF yet but I FEEL like I am about to start. I haven't had anymore bleeding and I am wondering what caused that to happen. I took another test today and again BFN so I am feeling pretty certain that this month is not our month. I would love to be wrong though!
Hello everyone, I am new to this website and it's so nice to see that I am not alone in this ttc boat. My husband and I are trying for our second baby as well. We have a 2 year old little boy, who is the most precious gift from God. We are hoping to give him a sibling. I ovulated on the 25th of January and have been taking tests since 10dpo. I am now at 14dpo and still getting negative results. AF still has yet to show herself, maybe tomorrow. Do I still have a chance of being pregnant? I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 18 years of age. I have never had a normal cycle until after I had my son. I have been able to track my cycles now but not sure if I will have to take clomid again(took this to get pregnant with my little boy). I am praying that I won't have to seeing as how it makes me completely crazy!!! I know my poor husband suffers from my mood swings while I'm on it but I can't even stand myself sometimes. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome mommy2jacob. Fingers crossed that supplements and luck might get your cycles on track if clomid is tough for you!
Sorry for the cell phone typing, but have to vent. My first progesterone was 11.7 at 3dpo (maybe 4). I was psyched!! But yesterday's was 11.4 (8dpo maybe 9). I'm bummed! I know progesterone fluctuates wildly through the day and one draw is not accurate. But I really wanted it to be high!! I wanted it to convince me I was pregnant!! Or at least enough to let me rule out low progesterone. :( boo
I am that I can get a BFP without meds. I am not against taking them again if necessary. The funny thing is that I actually got pregnant the month I stopped taking Clomid. It would have been my 3rd cycle on it, go figure. I told myself I wasn't gonna try anymore and if it was meant to be it would happen eventually. Well, low and behold I got a on a dollar store test. I could hardly believe it. So there is hope yet. I am hoping to see a midwife this time around and God willing can have a water birth.
Praying for you jpack! I will be testing again this weekend if AF hasn't arrived. Will keep ya'll posted! Baby Dust to us all!!!!!
ohmother- So sorry. :( Fingers crossed for you that next cycle you are blessed with a sticky bean.
jpack- I stalked you again, chart-stalked that is, and see that AF made her arrival. :( Sorry you didn't have a successful cycle. The second cycle following the m/c did the trick for me, which would be this cycle for you so I'm hoping you get the same luck!!!
I see that many of you were also expecting AF around this time so just hoping to see a BFP post from someone soon!
AFM- I am 9 weeks tomorrow and everything's going good other than being so sick! I am so thankful for that sickness though! Good luck everyone!!!
Ohmother- So sorry for your loss. I hope next cycle is a sticky bean.
Mamaforever- I love your updates. So glad everything, with the exception of being sick, is going well.
AFM: AF finally showed up this morning. Of course she was late. This was a really weird confusing cycle. Anyway, I am looking forward to trying again this month. FX'd that this coming cycle is the one!
I have been thinking that if we don't get a BFP this next cycle then we may take a month off. I'd really rather not give birth at Christmas. On the other hand I really had hoped to give birth before or around the time I turn 37 (in December).
I hope to hear of some BFP from you ladies soon!
