Trying to Conceive #2 - Page 41

post #801 of 897

congrats Simonsez! 

 

Dh is convinced I'm preggo but I'm still on the fence.  I don't want to face the dissapointment of not being preg :(  Today I have cramping like a mother and actually thought I had started my period a week early, but nope, nothin there.  Can I say I have been crazy the last week or so.  I guess I"m nesting but have no idea why.  In the last 5ish days I've: put up wall paper, pulled the carpet off the stairs, started painting the stairs, painted and faux finished one wall and started painting a second.  This is not my norm.  I've also been so so bloated and gassy for nearly two weeks.  It's ridiculous.  Oh, and then there's the acne and sudden exhaustion.  Like standing in line at the hardware and actually closing my eyes and dozing for a sec (with my three year old in tow). 

 

I have taken a few tests, but I don't think anyone here is going to yell at me :)

My DH is also convinced I'm prego, only because he thinks it's as easy as him BDing to get me pregnant...menlol.gif

 

Right there with ya, been cleaning more than usual and have been feeling a sense of urgency with every thing I do. Been pretty lazy and getting sleepy,,,, Oh! and the acne has been present for a couple days, which has really been bugging me.

 

AF is due in 8 days, haven't tested yet.

 

how many DPO are you?

 Wow so much great news . I am thrilled for you all and sending much prayers to those still waiting. I have decided that I am not going to do clomid next month. Yesterday was my last day of clomid for this cycle and I guess I will begin ov testing today. I still am unsure when is the best time to test. I am temping and so far have not really seen anything. So fingers crossed this month works. I just can not do the clomid another month . I am having some wicked side effects and it has also made me gain weight and I do not want to gain too much and then conceive I have experienced that before and it was hard. Fingers crossed ladies.  I am so glad to have been able to get on here and read some good news.

Congrats Simonsez!

 

Okay, this is my first month using Wondfo OPK strips and I just need a little input.  I realize that if I wait to do a couple more tests I might have an answer but I'm feeling impatient.   Does CD 16 look positive?

Oh, and also when I do get a positive then when am I ovulating.  Is it that once I get a negative after the positive I know I have already?

post #805 of 897

Thanks Simonsez for asking about me... I'm doing good, 12 weeks pregnant now.  I heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time on Monday with the doppler.  It was a beautiful sound!  My nausea is not gone, but it is better.  My midwife says I should be feeling much better by 14-16 weeks.  Sending lots of sticky vibes to you!  Enjoy your pregnancy!!!

post #806 of 897

 It is darker then I get. I usually have tests lighter and then gone. I hope it works out.

post #807 of 897

aHikaru-

I think I'm 11 dpo today.  Though I don't chart and don't even have the most reliable cycle.  I think I'll test in the morning.  Have you tested yet?  I am desperate to test, but am so afraid I'll get a neg result.

OMG I just tested and got 2 little lines!  It may be faint, but it's there joy.gif  Yesterday AM I took a test and it was neg. Later it hurt like heck when I took my bra off, dh was there and his eyes lit up.  I asked him if they looked differant and he said they're def bigger.  We measured and they're almost two cup sizes larger! 

 

In my head I'm running in circles :)

AFM

I'm a couple DPO, but no urge to test...yet. So far, i'm doing good, happy the weekend is here (always makes the days go by faster).

Congrats faithsstuff!!  biggrinbounce.gif

post #812 of 897

Thanks ladies.

aHikaru- AF is due in a day or two.  So I should be nearly 2 weeks post O.  I don't have anything exact.  I still feel nervous b/c I haven't officially missed a period yet.  I'm telling myself I'm prob safe since I've never had an issue in the past and recently had bloodwork done and things looked good.  I hadn't planned to call the midwives I want to work with for another 2-4 weeks, is that crazy?

If everything looked good and you we're given the "ok" to start BDing, then there is no rush to see a midwife. If/ when we are expecting another I don't plan to see a midwife until I am closer to my second trimester. Enjoy the feeling and the moment as long as you can orngbiggrin.gif

 

post #814 of 897

Faithstuff  I don't think its crazy at all. With my first, I didn't find my midwife until I was like 8 weeks and we didn't start having appointments until 12weeks.  I'll probably do the same this time around.  We live in a new area so I'm getting the dirt on all the local midwives but I'm not going to go interview them until I know I have a pretty sticky baby.

 

AFM

I'm CD 20 and I don't know how many days past ovulation if any.  I had a VERY positive OPK on CD17 and definite EWCM CD 16-17.  They have been getting progressively lighter but still don't look like the negatives I got earlier in the month. Today's actually looked like it might be closer.  Anyway, I'll keep testing and maybe I haven't even ovulated at all but I feel like entering a new phase so I'm starting the 2WW whether its true or not.  I mean technically AF is due in less than 2 weeks.

 

This is our 3rd month TTC and its kind of wearing on me.  We have a 2 year old, my husband wakes up for work at 5:30am, and to be honest there are nights when we both just collapse and fall asleep and then I get all stressed out about missed opportunities for sex.  We pretty much DTD every other day all cycle with the exception of the week before there was even a chance of ovulation when we DTD every night.  So, I'm thinking "why did we waste all that sex energy the week before when we should have saved it for when my OPK was positive!?"  And then that freaks me out because I don't want to turn DTD into some kind of obligatory chore.  We had sex every day that week because we wanted to and we had the energy that week and this week we only had the energy to do it every other day.

Sorry for the rant. I would just like this to be the last month so that we can go back to our normal healthy sex life where I'm not marking the calendar every time we DTD.

 

 

post #815 of 897

 I am really not understanding my temps. They are all over the place . Does anyone use a digital BB therm? I used the glass ones when I did this years ago but it just got broke. I am having trouble even finding the glass ones now. I fear the digital is not right.

post #816 of 897

Ciga, I hear you about the BDing issues. It's a pain (hopefully not literally). I'm glad you got your answer and know what a positive OPK looks like for you. I had to see it to to understant. I don't think it matters how long it takes to taper off that matters, it's the surge that prompts the ovaries to deliver, so the peak OPK (or first good striking positive) is what I go by.

 

Ohmother, I'm sorry about your temping situation! I use a digital and it works really well, but I have another, older one that doesn't work at all. I think I got mine at CvS and it's purple and white. The other thing about temping is timing. Do you use ff?

 

Congrats Faithstuff!

 

I also got a BFP, but it's still really early, so I'm going with a Little-Puny-Positive. After January, I feel a little been-there-done-that this time, and I'm got a beta today and I'll go in Wednesday again, but they take a while to come back so I won't know the full picture 'til Thursday. But, it's exciting, nonetheless. I wrote a longer and funnier post on the ONE thread, but I'm kinda out of steam now. I've been solo with DD since Saturday night with DH away on business and my folks away in FL (so no back-up either). We had two very near misses of serious injury today, one off the swing onto her head, the other in the bathroom onto her face. But we also had a great, hot day with sun and ice cream and hours in the park, so it all evens out, I suppose!

 

Mamaforever, I'm so hoping to follow in your path, and I can not believe you're already at 12 weeks. Wow. Keep me posted!

post #817 of 897

OMG! Jpack that is WONDERFUL news!  Congratulations!  How exciting!  broc1.gifbroc1.gifbroc1.gifI thought I would follow your dancing carrots with dancing broccoli wink1.gif.

post #818 of 897

Congrats Jpack, that is so exciting!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!  Also, thanks. I'm just going to base dpo on that first "striking positive".  Now that I have very clear negatives again I feel better.  Sorry about the baby drama.  My son flipped off a chair last week and landed on his head.  My heart stopped and I was sure he was going to be paralyzed or at least knocked unconscious.  He cried for a minute and climbed back on the chair.  It's a good thing they are so resilient.  Wow, could you believe yesterday.  It was amazing.  We spent most of the day playing outside in the sunshine too!  It was so rejuvenating.

post #819 of 897

jpack-   YYYYAAAAYYYYY!!!!!  joy.gifjoy.gifjoy.gif I am so excited for you!  And let me just say, I really had a strong feeling it would happen again for you soon.  I am sending lots of sticky sticky vibes to you!  Are you getting progesterone checked too or just betas?  I have to say, I am glad I made the decision on my own to start using natural progesterone cream to be on the safe side.  I started it around 4.5 weeks and I am weaning off of it now.  I am 13 weeks pregnant today, seems crazy I know.  You will be there in a couple months!!!!!  CONGRATS!

post #820 of 897

Thanks so much ladies! But, unfortunately, I think I'm in for another bummer. The nurse called an nonchalantly told me that the #s were too low. When I asked, she told me a beta of 13 and progesterone of 8. That's at 12 dpo. So... I asked about prometrium and she said she would give it to me if I really wanted it but it was too late to do anything at this point. So I bought some progesterone cream and another couple HPTs. A couple hours later, I did another HPT and it was much darker and came up much faster than yesterday, so I called and asked for the prometrium. After a minor fiasco at the pharmacy, I finally made it home and took it. I know there's nothing I can do, and I'm going to get the beta retest tomorrow, but I won't find out #s until Thursday, so I guess I just have to wait. At least I feel somehow like I did everything I could do. I'm all in for seeing an RE after this!
