Thanks for the new thread! I've taken a couple more tests (well, actually a total of 6 nowlol.gif and some at different times throughout the day just for variety - I feel like I should be doing SOMETHING, ugh) and I am SURE I'm pregnantenergy.gif Could you please move me. Thanks so muchorngbiggrin.gif.

 

Question: I'm interviewing a midwife on Tuesday and wondering if anyone can suggest a list of things I should ask and/or go over with her? I should be at least 5 weeks by then and EDD 9/16, no insurance and no OB... She's a naturopath as well so I am really excited and hope we're a great fit.

Hey gals! Ive been away over the holidays and following our last miscarriage but it is great to be back and see so many BFPs (including my special friend Suzie!!)

While I was away I had an RPL panel done and discovered I've got the homozygous C677T MTHFR mutation. Glad to know there may be a reason for our losses. Doc recos Folgard, prenatal, plus baby aspirin once preg. I'm leaning towards taking L-methylfolate + B6 & B12 since it is more easily absorbed by us MTHFR mutants. If anyone has any experience with this I would love to hear! smile.gif

You can also move me to Waiting to Know. We didn't stop trying this month so who knows???

BFN this morning and still no AF. If I get another negative tomorrow I better see AF show up by the end of the day so I can just start over already! Ugh. Thinking about trying out Fertilitea or something similar. Reccommendations anyone?
post #5 of 32

Thanks for the new thread!

 

Renaissance31, I LOVE the Fertilitea from Euphoric Herbals on Etsy. The shipping is so fast, and the tea smells and tastes amazing. She has a 2 teas for $10 sale, which is more than enough to get me through a cycle. Each pack of tea comes with a muslin bag for brewing too. :) I usually brew mine in quart jars and just drink 1/4 of the jar a day until I O.

Thanks for the new thread.

 

I'm still waiting to o, so not much is going on here TTC why's.  I am still waiting for a student teaching spot too and that's what's taking up most of my thinking.  Well that and the fact that I have found myself on this spiritual journey trying to figure out what way is the way for me.  Pretty much I am going insane over here but at least it is keeping my mind off of TTC lol.

I'm two days from the end of the cycle, based on my temps, but I wont test until I'm late this time. I'm putting an electric heat pad on my belly because I'm constantly super crampy. Anyone know if that much heat is dangerous if I actually am pregnant?

It's not good (or at least not recommended) to let your core body temp go over 102F. Maybe just make sure your temp isn't rising too high? I'm honestly not sure about direct heat on the abdomen. Maybe do five minutes on and ten off and repeat? Just to keep from getting too warm?

I wouldn't say it is dangerous but probably not the best idea. Perhaps keep the pad away from the uterus area? I do know you're not supposed to go to the sauna or steam baths.

 

wave.gifHello Everyone!

 

AF showed up yesterday so I can be moved to Waiting to O.

Got ya all updated... I am moving over to waiting to know. My first 2WW in a while!

post #11 of 32

I have managed to get donors every day so far. Now I'm just waiting for my temp shift. I usually ovulate on cd14, and today is cd15. I'm guessing my temp rise will occur tomorrow (and hoping it will).

 

I found a new donor who says his sperm count is 120-140 million. I'm hoping that, combined with the Clomid, will finally be the key to my BFP.

 

Think Fertile Thoughts!

I added you. I am not going to even look at a stick until I am close to my cycle, still 10-12 days away.

My periods are not due till 23rd. I do not have any symptoms :( so I think I'm kinda giving up.

Dekan, dont give up yet... I didn't have any symptoms of pregnancy until about a week or two after my period was due. Symptom spotting will drive you crazy. How was your timing? Are you temping? Have you ever been pregnant before?
post #16 of 32

Thanks for the support Anyalily! No I've never been pregnant before, that's probably why I'm driving myself crazy gathering all the info. I haven't been temping since I learned about it only have way thru my cycle so planning on doing it from the next cycle.

 

I have a question for the experts here: I know the tender breasts before AF (I'm getting a hang of the slang here! wink1.gif)  are due to lack of progesterone, also progesterone is needed during conception. Then how is tender breasts an early symptom of pregnancy? Unless I missed something...

 

Ok I lied, I have another question: Does anyone have the constant feeling like AF is going to arrive any minute a week before its actually due? I read somewhere....I could be wrong too...but this is due is lack of progesterone too. Is that right?

 

Thanks in advance!

Breasts are very sensitive to changes in lots of hormones, so they can be sore or different for any or no reason. Mine now leak milk before each period, for no reason.

Everyone! What do you know:
is it possible to start AF and not have a temp drop yet? Temp drop and AF definitely due for me today. I'm spotting a tiny bit pink but my temp is high as ever. I didn't spot in my other pregnancies (except when losing them later) so I'm sure this is AF but I'm stumped by my temp not dropping.
post #18 of 32

LittleKind...   My temp used to always drop after AF had already started. So, I never got that warning. (Lately it seems to drop before, or the same day.)

post #19 of 32
BBL to catch up here. AF coming on and I'm feeling some kind of ways. anyalily, can you move me to "Waiting to O" please? Thank you. Hope you ladies are doing well...
post #20 of 32
Thank you Stevi! My pattern seems to change after every pregnancy and I can never keep track of my "new normal"
