Just dropping in to say SUPER DUPER CONGRATULATIONS to zoe and sraplayas! I'm so happy for you ladies!!
Checking in. CD 42 here and still basically nothing. I had an almost O a few weeks ago that never turned into anything. I had tiny tiny smidges of spotting the beginning of last week for 4-5 days. DS turned 1 on Saturday and he's misplaced my thermometer...so between moving, the birthday and him getting the stomach flu last week, I haven't been really keeping much watch on my fertility. I'm almost positive I haven't Oed though. I think I'm going to call and cancel my appt with the OB because I'm afraid she won't be much help. Instead I'm just going to call my midwife and and try to coerce them into giving more help than I seem to be getting. Its almost like they treat me as if I don't deserve help because I'm BFing? I'm sure its just me being emotional.
I don't want to conceive on these late Os either though, because they seem to almost certainly end in m/c. Sigh. Not interested in that road.
Still waiting to O, 6 months TTC, DS 12 months
Ears Good luck in the TWW. I hope those pimples don't mean a thing (or maybe that is a sign of pregnancy for you this time)!
Ibreed I wonder if nursing mothers don't get help, not because they are being judged, but because the provider doesn't have the knowledge to help. That might not be the case in your situation. I've just been thinking about that...
rebirth I hope things just fall into place for you!
The DDCs are groups starting with May, Scroll up to the top of the page where you can see the menu items in the purple bar, click on the groups tab and you'll be able to find it.
So glad to see some BFPs here! Congrats Zoe and Sraplayas!
AFM, Nothing interesting here. I'm getting a bit of EWCM, so I've got my fingers crossed that O holds off until DH gets home, which will hopefully be Friday instead of Sunday now, so that improves my chances a bit.
texasfarmom - That makes a lot of sense. It seems like a "hands off subject" because no one knows much about it so its easier to avoid it. I called the midwife's nurse and spoke to her to ask her if I had any more options in relation to these long cycles and she tried to convince me that I'm just ovulating during these long cycles without knowing it. (Like if I had 60 days between periods I ovulated twice and just didn't have a period in between). It was ridiculous. I told her I charted and took OPKs so I'm almost positive I didn't. How does a midwives nurse not know how a cycle works? After speaking to my best friend last night she convinced me to go ahead and see the OB. Her point was "what is the worst that can happen? You get no more help than you're getting now and you pay for one doctor visit." So I filled out the paperwork and sent it in, including my cycle history since 2007....long before DS. Irregular cycles are my history. So is having to take provera to have cycles.
I'm also visiting the university library to read "Medications and mothers' milk" by Thomas Wright Hale to see what he has to say about clomid. Thats the only option I know.
Wow, what a month--congrats and here's to more BPF's here soon!
Received my labwork and everything looks good! Thanks again, mamas, for your support and kindess throught this past year.
congratulations livelaughlove and rebirth!
sraplayas great news about the lab work, hope things continue to go smoothly.
I got a positive OPK today, a little bit shocked to be honest, didn't expect to ovulate again so soon. I have no idea what CD I am, mc was confirmed a week ago but as I never had a heavy bleed, just spotting it's been hard to pinpoint cd1. I think the pregnancy ended about a week or more before the beta test last week so I could be as much as CD16. Got a busy weekend with DH planned now!
Congratulations to livelovelaugh and rebirth
Just a quickie update....I got most of my blood work results back from the RE (they took 15 vials! did I mention that?!)...everything looks great as far as I can tell so that is a relief. I'll see him again in early - mid November. I guess I'll go for the hsg before my appt. I'm not really looking forward to that test. It feels strange not temping this cycle!
