Tear 78- Please please feel free to read and chat anytime! I'm glad you wrote. It does sound like we are in similar boats! I totally get you on trying to avoid the dark side of emotions of ttc and infertility. If I'm really honest with myself and now that I'm looking back on it, I think I was very very close to being depressed. It also reeked havoc on my relationship with my husband (among other relationshops) so we've both been trying to be pretty relaxed about it. I am charting and doing opks but really more for data collection for my RE as our chances are pretty close to nil. It actually helps to have realistic expectations.
Letileon- bah!! That just sucks. I hate how our bodies can fool us. I wish I could hook mine up to a computer like they do vehicles!
jj- definitely bittersweet. I'm glad to hear your LO has adjusted so well. sounds like a smooth transition. My DD (15months) on the other hand has ramped up her nursings like crazy and where I thought I could slowly wean or reduce nursings about a month ago doesn't look so promising now. I may follow you on your IVF journey if you join that thread, if you're ok with that?All the best!
AFM- I'm 7DPO. My temps have been at coverline for the last 3 days, sore boobs, occassional cramping, and moodiness (my poor husband) which are my tell-tale PMS signs. I'm now just wondering how long my luteal phase will be. I know breastfeeding can cause a luteal phase defect but in what mechanism does it do that? Anyone know? I've done a little reading on the topic unrelated to breastfeeding and its' different causes lead to different treatments. Seeing as my RE is willing to go forward with treatments while I"m breastfeeding I'm just wondering what we're up against? Plus, my progesterone at 2DPO was 19.2 which is great but my temps are so low so I'm just kind of confused. Anyways, now I'm just rambling. I am on 110mg vitamin b complex. Any other suggestions, ladies? TIA!
