Anyone have experience with TTC and getting yeast infections?! It's like my body was not happy to have swimmers in there orngtongue.gif
I've had that issue A LOT since beginning TTC almost a year ago greensad.gif I use the vagisil ph balance wash every time after intimacy and that really seems to help!

Hi everyone!! Sorry I dropped out its been a rough few days!! Af was so wacky this month. Spotting last Saturday, nothing Sunday, spotting Monday and Tuesday and wed am, called the RE, they said ehh doesn't seem normal POAS get back to us. Started moderate bleeding that afternoon (20 min after buying hpt, grrrrrr) but abruptly stopped by Thursday afternoon. I POAS Saturday, bfn.
Sunday I find out two friends are pg (both started trying way after us, total meltdown on my part. Dh thought I was losing it I think. I bought clear blue opk last night and started testing so far neg yesterday and today. FYI I am a very short cycle-er so I should o within a couple days. Whooo that was long, sorry!! Here's to all the symptom spotting happening again this cycle!!

Cls182 - That does sound like a wacky cycle. I hope it means something good. I totally understand about the pregnant friends. I had one friend who (at 5 weeks) made a big elaborate announcement during a family/friends dinner, which she recorded a video of. Then she texted it to several friends, uploaded it to FB, and called everyone she knew. I am happy for her, but I know she broke a few hearts in the process. Among her friends was someone who had a 16wk loss, and her SIL who's IVF cycles had failed. I think it was very insensitive to not warn those friends first. They had to hold it together until they got home. It sucked. Both of those ladies are pg now though smile.gif

As far a yeasties go, I used to have trouble with that a couple years ago. I helped a lot to drink lots of water so I could pee before and after BD. I also give the lady parts a quick rinse before and after BD, too. (DH did the same for himself.) I know that doesn't sound very romantic, so sometimes we'd fix that by showering together. Also, BDing every other day worked better for us in to keep yeasties away, but on fertile days we'd still BD daily or 2x a day. Also sleeping without undies or with loose shorts helps to increase airflow and keep things drier.

We've got these cute little announcements all designed, and last night DH had to gently remind me that one of the couples I was going to send one to has been TTC for the last several years (and may never be able to) so maybe we should find another way to let them know.  I would have just steamrolled all over them in my excitement if it hadn't been for DH.  For some reason, I really feel the need to apologize to all of you ladies who are having difficulties.  I know you know that they (hopefully) don't mean anything by it, but I'm still sorry for how things go down sometimes.  greensad.gif

 

 

 

Here we go from being royally ticked off for no reason to being weepy over something that I had nothing to do with.  gah!

I think it is so difficult for people that get pregnant easily to understand the hardships those of us who have to work at it go through. DH and I lost a baby girl at 24 weeks and it was devastating. It took us 18 months to get pregnant again. Our family knew what a difficult time we were going through. I had a cousin get pregnant (with out trying I might add) about 2 months before I finally got pregnant with DS. She is one who LOVES attention and had a big announcement about being pregnant. We found out I was pregnant and announced on Christmas Eve (she had announced hers on Halloween). Anyway, she had the nerve to say I was "stealing her thunder"! So insensitive especially considering what we have gone through. She has sense had 2 more unplanned pregnancies and goes on and on about how fertile she is. Very difficult to tolerate sometimes!

PrimalJoy kmfx I hope the stays away for you....

OMG livnkadesmom. My jaw literally dropped when I read about your cousin. How terrible. I'm really sorry you had to go through a loss , and then for her to say you're stealing her thunder... grrr.

EWCM? 7DPO? AF isn't due for 8 days?

I don't have any OPK's to test with to check a second O, but I'm having O pains. I'll probably just BD anyways.
But I O'd CD11, with O pains and spotting comparable to the length and width of a sewing pin needle (I said CD10 earlier, but was counting wrong).
Today is CD18 so that just seems weird to me.
I've been dry as dry since CD13 and all of a sudden I was wet, wet, wet! I thought maybe I started AF but it's way to early.

TMI So I checked CM and it's yellow snotty but EWCM. I took a picture but I think I'll post it on my profile as not to throw anyone off on here. Lol.
Anyone else have this happen?

*edit cervix is still tucked away up higher than o and almost blended to the wall. Closed completely still.

Hi chourd how are you feeling so far?
post #291 of 629
Livnkadesmom- that's terrible. She is more to be pitied than blamed. What a strange way to live your life!! I shook my head in wonder and disgust.
So sorry though to hear about your loss. That is tragic. Im rooting for you more than ever now. And I really enjoy your posts :-)

Over here I think AF has finally showed her damn ugly face! Worst house guest I have ever had! I totally expect her to call, then she doesn't and I get my hopes up, and then she rocks up anyway!! Gah!!

The strange thing is that I am really light and fully expect proper flow tomorrow- which is two days late. When I changed the interpretation method to fam on FF it made my O date as two days later. I discounted it as nothing fitted with that, but given my period appears to be two days "late" maybe that was my true O date???

Oh. I'm fed up of calculating and measuring and even thinking!!! I'm going to enjoy a glass of red wine tonight and toast her arrival. Put away my disappointment (which is actually quite huge) then look forward to resetting the board and a whole new month.

For those still hanging out with us here, lets hope next month brings more baby dust to us all.

Kelsey - I had that 2 days ago and googled (of course) it seems some women get that before AF regularly, for others it can be a sign of early pregnancy... Have you thought that at 7 dpo O pains may be implantation?
CLS, Livn, mamma blue - those are it considerate people are they! It seems there's a fine line, pregnant people avoiding ones who just miscarried is just as offensive, as is waiting too long to tell people... One of my best mates didn't tell me with either child for 4 months or so (her mum had late losses) and while I know in my heart it was right for her, I now feel I can't share my journey with her, lol not sure why, just feels onesided.
Ultrafighter - lol so hormonal and sweet - you didn't do it lol no need to feel bad (so impressed dh is so sensitive tho!)
Oxford - lol we are so in the same boat! Lol I'm due today, but achy rather than crampy etc. I had a temp dip yesterday but stayed the same today... My chart
http://fertilityfriend.com/home/41d17e
I looked at a lot of pg charts (Internet) they tended to have a slight temp drop before going up and getting a bfp...
Primal, ay6,owl howl - hang in there!
777 - I've had 3 days of spotting of far...
Fx for you all!
post #293 of 629
Oxford we cross posted, big bummer! Hopefully she eases off and leaves early? For some reason I don't want to count you out until full flow...
post #294 of 629
Oxford sorry to hear tht af paid you a visit kmfx tht next month works
In our favor...
post #295 of 629
oxford, oh poo. That stinks. Enjoy that we'll deserved glass of red wine.

livnkades I can't imagine a loss that late. Fx for you, mama!

kelseywhitney I've had that kind of CM before. I had it when I was 3 weeks prego with DS and also in my January cycle, which ended up being a BFN. I was so sure I was pg that cycle. From what I've read in online forums nobody really knows what's up with the yellow snotty CM.
post #296 of 629
Oxford- thanks! I have really enjoyed getting to "know" you! 😊 Still keeping my FXed for u! However, I understand the need to toast one cycle adios and look forward to a new one.


Chuord- I keep getting on waiting to see your BFP! Hoping you get your desired outcome soon!

Writeon- it was a very difficult loss and I think about that little girl everyday and wonder what she would be like. I just have to believe that God was sparing her from something tragic...that is my only way of finding a little understanding. It has been almost 8 years and time has helped but complete healing will never come. 😪

AFM- I am STILL waiting to O. Thinking it may be today and that was ff prediction. Due to an overly busy weekend we didn't get much BDing done. If I O today, we will have hit 3 days before so we shall see!

It is safe to say that I NEVER thought of this. *palm to face* That would be wonderful! I'm so excited because I started cramping a bit now too. Hah, yah cramps.

It's so frustrating that early PG symptoms might as well be AF symptoms. And other things aren't really symptoms at all. I'm on track to making myself crazy, aren't I? My only symptoms are the ones that aren't reliable. Like CM and Cervix position. Lol. I was so SURE I was pregnant last month. I had EVERY early symptom, but this month is totally different from that and the months before I was TTC. I checked my CM and Cervix regularly while WTTC. I feel like I'm not pregnant this time. What ever brain.

 

I don't even have anything to compare to my last TTC. We where not trying the first time. 2 weeks after DH and I got married I found an old unused HPT while unpacking. I tested 10 days before AF was due and got a positive! I have fraternal twins in my family from my mothers mother and was scared it was twins because of how early I tested. Apparently just a strong willed egg and sperm. My 15 month old DD is pretty strong willed herself. hah! Now I wouldn't even mind twins.

 

Okay I'm rambling. I feel like this is my first time TTC, even though we're TTC#2. Some one stop me, gosh.

Kelsey- no judgment here! It is hard not to become consumed with TTC. During the TWW EVERYTHING is a symptom. You are definitely in the right place! 😃

Don't be sorry ultra. When I was struggling TTC my DD2, my SIL found out she was pregnant with her first. The day before she made the official announcement, she called us to let us know. It was really kind, and it gave me a day to privately sort my feelings out so I could smile along with the rest of the family. I followed her example when I was pregnant.

Liv made - hugs on your late loss, somehow brain to finger didn't actually type it last time.. You're so strong and positive on here for us all, and here's this deep mourning we didn't know was there 😞 hopefully you are blessed again really soon.
Kelsey lol you're funny! I'm just glad someone on here is at least as crazy as me... I don't want to raise any false hopes etc. lol but can't believe you didn't think of that while symptom spotting 😝 hopefully all of us close to it will find out soon.
Btw ff has my cycle ending in a weeks time (O was wrong in my first chart month) but I know I'm a 31-32 day girl lol...
