post #861 of 986

Slammerkin - it is definitely exciting and a little scary! I'm not sure what finally changed for him, but I'm glad of it!

 

I am trying to wait until Friday to test; I don't actually have any tests on hand. Not sure I'll be able to wait that long though! I may go down to the store tomorrow and get one for use on Thursday morning.

Serenyd - thank you for the info on how all of your dates are lining up. I don't feel quite as odd :-). I've also been looking for a oct DDC. Would love to be in one.

Dahlia - you've been off the air. Are you doing ok? I'm a bit worried!

Afm - I broke down and took sudafed last night. The post nasal drip made me nauseous, I puked, then had a mini melt down. I thought I was doing the right thing. Then found out the Approved medicine list is for after 13 weeks. Ugh...

I remember last month someone was asking about the thyroid and pregnancy. I received info from my doc yesterday. I'm fairly confident that my levels are all off. Should hear back from the doc today or tomorrow.

First off congrats on the BFP!! That is so exciting! It was me asking about the thyroid. I have read about how difficult it can be for people to get preggo if their levels are off. Do u think the pregnancy has your levels off? What does your TSH usually run? Would love to know what your doctor had to say!

Congrats to all the other BFPs. I am on CD 10 today and waiting for EWCM. FF is predicting O for early next week but since this is my first cycle in 6 years temping that may not be accurate. Looking forward to hearing how everyone is doing. Good luck ladies!

11 DPO today. I broke down and tested. Not smart. BFN on a FRER. Tried to imagine a shadow of a line but really there's not. We had a long night so I'm tired and now I'm just bummed. There's just nothing else we could have done this cycle. Everything was perfect. It sucks. shake.gif Could be too early but I really doubt it.

carrot.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifCongrats Serenyd!! Wishing you a happy and uneventful 9 months!!carrot.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gif

 

hug2.gifKatie. I'm in the same boat. 12 DPO and I didn't temp or test this morning. My temp plummeted yesterday, my pre-AF breast changes began, light spotting and cramping - which continues today. AF should be here full force by tonight or tomorrow morning. Not a single cycle since I began trying seems like the one before, I have no idea how to gauge what to expect or what's even normal for me anymore!! I cannot tell you how absolutely heart broken I feel gloomy.gif I too felt like everything looked perfect for this to be the month. And I am continually shocked by the fact that this doesn't seem to get any easier to accept. I thought perhaps after a few months it wouldn't feel so devastating but no, it feels like a fresh wound each month. And each month at this point I think I'm done, I cannot do this to myself even one more time surrender.gifIt is just too painful. And then a few days pass and I am filled with hope again. *sigh* Not sure I have the stamina at this point but we'll see in a a week or so how things look. 9 cycles now with no BFP to show for it. I feel pathetic. I have a script for bloodwork on CD 3 to assess my FSH levels. We'll see...

hug2.gif to you too, Sparkle. I'm sorry you're in the same spot but at least we can be here together. I was having a cr@ppy week and now it's just worse! I know I wasn't convinced I was, but I definitely had moments where I thought I could be. So much for that. I really hoped the progesterone would do the trick this cycle. I know last time it took a couple of cycles so I knew that could happen but I was so hopeful. I really wanted an October baby. Oh well. I know I'll feel better in a few days, like you said, but today I'm going to drink a huge mug of coffee and be sad. I never watch TV when the kids are awake but I just checked to see when Ellen is on since I just need to laugh today! 

post #868 of 986
Oh sparkle. I'm sorry. I completely relate to how you feel though. Just try to keep your head up. This month wasn't it but that's ok, next month smile.gif

Ahh Katie. I hope it's just to early.

I'm due for AF around next Thursday. 6dpo today. Not feeling a thing.
post #869 of 986
Just wanted to give big hug.gif 's to katie and Sparkle.

That "fresh wound" feeling you mention Sparkle is exactly why I've chosen to do my absolute best to not get too excited or expect anything this cycle. I just can't take another crushing disappointment like last cycle. I'm not looking forward to testing and I don't think, at least at this point, that I'm going to have any urge to test early.

katie: With DS2 I got a BFN then a BFP three days later. That was with $Tree tests though. Don't give up 'til the witch really comes calling ok?
post #870 of 986

Thanks for the hugs, everyone. I need them. I know it's not over til it's over but with not feeling it 100% and then the BFN I think I'm probably out. I kind of want to just process it and be sad. If I test again and get a BFP, great, but if not at least I'll be prepared, yk? My plan is to test again Fri morning and if BFN I'll stop my progesterone so I can get AF and just move on. A November baby would be good, too. I would be on maternity leave through the holidays, which would be nice I guess. Already looking for positives so I know I'll be ok.

Livin - thanks for reminding me. The doc told me that due to my thyroid issue they will be drawing blood more often and managing my levels closely. It's not good for baby to have levels all over the place. Also I will be getting more ultra sounds to measure the baby's size. Especially in the last month. Growth is the main concern. I'm pretty sure that my levels are all jacked right now. Have had more hair falling out the last week (before bfp was known) and I've been snapping at the kids. Both are big warning signs for me. The test results can't come back fast enough. Hormones are one thing then to have the Tyrone off... Ugh... My doc has me on 125mg tues, thu, sat, and sun. Then 150mg on mon, we'd, and fri. Checked my last blood results and my TSH was .3ish normal range is .4 - .5 but I seem to do better lower.

My keys got locked in the car and hubby's mtg trumped mine so I'm at home for the day. DD and DS are off to school and the house is all quiet! Laundry and baby reading for me today!
post #872 of 986
Cindy- are u hyper or hypo? I can't remember. I am hypo. My last TSH was 5.0 and my dr said that was ok. However, since I was still having symptoms she increases it. I am being very consistent with my meds now. Before I was bad not to take at the same time everyday or wait long enough to eat breakfast. That medication is so finicky!! I have read online that most reproductive endos want TSH to be below 2, so that is what I am shooting for. I will have blood work in about 2 weeks to see where my levels are. Praying for a good number!!!
post #873 of 986
Livin -
I'm hypo (under active). Completely agree with you on the medicine. My doc switched me off of the generic to the brand name. The dosage amount isn't regulated as closely in the generic and she thinks that was messing with me.
post #874 of 986
Yes Cindy- I had to go to name brand because i was having awful side effects on the generic. I was diagnosed about 3 years ago and still haven't gotten it regulated. So frustrating...especially when TTC!
post #875 of 986

Oh Sparkle, huge hugs to you! Your month will come, I really really believe it! I hate to see you so sad. Pamper yourself, and I hope you find your happiness again very very soon! <3

 

Katie, Don't give up!! I got a bfn at 11 dpo too, and it was wrong!

 

Cindy lu, I'm here! haha, just a crazy day for me! I'll fill in below :) Thanks for checking on me!

 

Blonhrt, sometimes a quiet body is a good thing!

 

I hope I didn't miss anyone, though I'm sure I did! This morning was just crazy. I got in an accident on my way to work (I'm fine, just some whiplash), and so I've been running around with my husband since about 8 am after it happened. Had to take the car to a collision center, and now try to get a rental set up! But, I'm on cloud 9, cause my test looked great this morning!!!

 

 

Definitely darker than yesterday, or even last nights (which I ended up caving and taking right before bed). Since my husband and I aren't working today anyway, I told him the good news and then had him drive me to get my blood test haha. I'm soo excited! This is my first nice solid positive :)

post #876 of 986

CONGRATULATIONS DahliaSerenyd, and Cindy-lu!!!  I knew this thread would be filled with BFPs :-)

post #877 of 986

Thank you, Angel!! I hope you're doing well!

post #878 of 986
Congrats Dahlia! Looks great! I hope I have the same outcome!

I took apart the FRER from this morning and I swear I see something although it's probably just the antibody line, nothing real. Should not take part tests nor look at them after the time limit! Will test again tomorrow and see. Staying pretty downtrodden since I'm sure it's nothing.
post #879 of 986
Woho looks great dahlia!!
post #880 of 986
Coming back after a few months of hiding from here cause I have been so bummed about the troubles we are having ttc #3. But it's a new year and this cycle has been going well... Got a pos OPK yesterday and we are hopeful!

Katie - I am so bad about that too- taking the tests apart and overanalyzing... Past time limit.. ugh! I just get so eager to see SOMETHING! I didnt get BFP with DD until a few days after AF was due and I had long given up at that point. Try not to sweat it and stay hopeful! (easier said than done I know!)

Dahlia- what a day! Lovely line though!



Congrats to all the BFPs and hopeful thoughts to all those waiting!
