The ONE Thread July 107 - Page 2

post #21 of 64

Hello, ladies. Update: Had some blood work done today. Hcg is 59.7. Progesterone, according to the midwife is "absolutely gorgeous"  at 23.51. So, my Hcg is a little on the low side, but that could also be because it's still really early. LMP was June 6th. So.... now I wait until Wednesday when I will go to the hospital's lab to do another blood test, but I expect she won't have the results until Thursday..... Hmmm. But, maybe if she's on call for delivery on Wednesday she might call me then... Hmmmm. How am I going to wait????????????????????? After last year's miscarriage I really wish I could fast forward through this part. 

 

Please send sticky thoughts my way.

Congrats sleepingbeauty on your much wanted BFN! Hey, if you aren't ready yet then it's the best news smile.gif

Congrats on your BFN, Sleeping Beauty!!!!!  That's great news!!

 

 

Wishing you sticky vibes, Sugar Plum!

 

AFM, I am on CD15 now, and after 2 days of creamy CM, I seem to have dried up.  Not sure what that is about.

SleepingBeauty - Congrats on your BFN.

post #26 of 64

Thanks everyone!  And I just got a BFN with FMU.  Keeping that third one in the box for a week from today just in case AF doesn't show (regardless, I'll be checking in with someone at that point.  This is very bizarre for my clockwork-like cycles)

sleepingbeauty - So happy for you! I'm glad you got the result you wanted. When the timing isn't right, it sure makes things a LOT more stressful.

ClumsySugarPlum - Great bloodwork results! I hope your HCG doubles up nicely smile.gif

AFM: 11DPO or 7DPO, depening on which day I O'ed on. I usually wait until 14DPO to test but I don't know when 14DPO actually is! ARGH. Anyone have thoughts on my chart? I probably sound like a broken record but there's usually so many charting experts on this thread, I'm surprised at the lack of response smile.gif

I'd say you probably O'ed on CD25, due to the rise in temp afterwards (the rise after CD 21 wasn't as significant), but I'm far from an expert in reading charts!!!

Pretty quiet here today!

 

I will share a funny anecdote:

 

Last night after DTD with DH, I was laying in bed and I coughed and felt that "rush" of ... fluid coming out (sorry, TMI!!) and I thought to myself "oh god, don't cough you'll ruin everything!!" LOL funny how much the TTC process consumes your mind.

 

Happy Independance day to all you Yankees!  smile.gif

Lol! I have thoughts like that too after sex. Like, "How do I Lay down without letting ANYTHING out!?"

 

AFM: Wiped after a BM this morning and had goooooood EWCM/brown tinged. Libido has been through the roof today. Ready to make a little Independence Day baby. *Little Firecracker* baby! Now we are just waiting for DD to go to bed early so we can DTD. sleepytime.gif = 2twins.gif = makebabe.gif

Sending good vibes your way, Bailey that this will be the month for you! I'm on cd16 now, and still only wet cm. I haven't had any ewcm since I went off bcp. If this month doesn't do the trick I'm going to mke an appt with my gyne to discuss maybe taking progesterone (?) I'm currently taking 50mg of B6 (when I don't forget). I reallllly hope this is the month!

How frustrating after having such an easy time of it with DS, I never expected to be going on my third month of trying! (I know that's nothing compared to a lot of the ladies here, but still frustrating!)
post #32 of 64
Good luck BaileyB! Hope you got a chance to get some BDing in last night smile.gif

StudyingStones: There are some quick and easy ways you can try to increase CM. Drinking cranberry juice (pure juice, not cocktail) and lots of water will both help. Lots of women use ohhhh.... now what the heck is it called. A decongestant I think, something that would get mucus flowing in your head does the same thing down there. I can't remember the name of the stuff I've heard most commonly used. maybe someone else will know!

AFM: 9DPO or 13DPO, and temp just jumped up again. I'm trying to wait til Monday to test. Not sure if my willpower will hold out if my temp keeps going up though smile.gif

LivingSky - I almost snorted my breakfast because I thought you were writing the name of some lubricant was called "Ohhhhhhhhhhh!" In my head I was like, "I've never heard of that one. Rather suggestive product name...."

 

Maybe Mucinex?

 

 

I'll be giggling about that all morning.ROTFLMAO.gif

post #34 of 64

Thanks for the tips, LivingSky!  There's so much I don't know about the TTC process, and so much I didn't have to think about with DS. 

 

I did a bit of reading last night and saw a bunch of ladies talking about using Robitussin to increase CM.. I thought that was kinda strange, but now I understand why it would work.  I'll definitely give these things a try (starting with the simplest, drinking more water!)

post #35 of 64
ClumsySugarPlum - LOL I never even thought of that! Now I will be giggling all morning too!

Though I seriously have seen some things with names as suggestive as that - like "O" gel that's supposed to help women.. well.. you know wink1.gif

Got my results back! My second quant was 220, more than doubling my first one at 59.7! My progesterone looks good too, so hopefully little bean will stick around to be little babe! So happy! Thanks, ladies, for reading my posts and responding. Good luck to everyone and I hope to see you in the March DDC soon! I think I can be moved to graduate.

Congratulations ClumsySugarPlum!  That's great!

Yay SugarPlum!  Congrats on graduating! thumb.gif

AFM--1 week, 6 days late.  This is insane. I had such immense cramps last night that J and I just curled up in bed and cuddled.  He rubbed my back and I love that guy all the more for it. lol  I knew for sure AF was coming.  I even told J that it would only be another hour or so.  So I wok up this morning, ran to the bathroom....nothing.  Pink-tinged CM that I had to go get (TMI, sorry) and barely anything on my toilet paper.  I have no idea what's going on with this.  My boobs are a little sore (usually an "any second now" PMS symptom for me) and I'll admit to maybe, possibly being a tiny bit of a mega-b****. shy.gif

 

Anyone have anything that might encourage my body to get AF moving along?  I'm retesting tomorrow morning just in case (2 weeks late) and calling my gyn on Monday either way.  This crap has gone on long enough.  WTH is my body doing?!?! banghead.gif

I don't have any advice for you, Sleeping Beauty, but sending many BFN and AF thoughts your way!!!
