The TTC One Thread - May Flowers and BFP's - Page 6

post #101 of 117
Hi everyone,
I was doing some reading about having a short luteal phase and how that could affect fertility. Does anyone have knowledge or advice on this subject? My luteal phase was 9 - 10 days this month. I am new to the site and have been learning so much! Thanks!

Hello, I know I haven't written in a couple months- we have been struggling- for me its emotional/mental-- trying not to over think or worry and for my husband- he has been sick off and on which doesn't make it any easier. We took a little bit of a break and we both seem to be doing alittle bit better now. I am still struggling with everyone else getting pregnant/having kids- I have been withdrawing a bit from other people. I have been somewhere between trying to avoid anything about babies to wanting to read/watch anything related to babies. Its a weird place to be in. We have a doctor's appt. scheduled for June 25th and we will get a referral to the fertility clinic. 

 

Best wishes for everyone! Seeing so much success on here gives me real hope for the near future.

linnylou, i have 9-10 day luteal phase and have never had trouble conceiving. its plenty of time for implantation. with my first two i did have light spotting right when i was expecting AF. they may have just squeaked in there. my new BFP i've had no spotting and implanted 5DPO. If you want to lengthen it then use b#6 and vitex, it can take 2-3 months. also temping to see if it holds up through the whole luteal phase and getting your progesterone checked after ovulation. some women take progesterone as a supplement to help. i see it as a good thing, the two week wait is a lot shorter! good luck. 

 

someone should make a June thread! jayray? i'm moving on to my DDC. :) baby dust ladies! hope some of you join me for a February baby!

I'm leaving for vacation on Thursday and probably won't be spending much time in the Internet for those two weeks! Otherwise I would! I guess I could start one, just wouldn't be able to maintain.

I am 5 dpo today. Been TTC since end May 2012. Tis is my first cycle on chlomid, day 3-7, 50 mg. No side effects whatsoever except slept like a baby during those days. Having crazy food cravings since yesterday and attributing such to chlomid. Anyone in the same boat?

I am happy to take over the thread and make a new one for June, unless of course someone else wants to, I don't want to step on any toeswinky.gif so if your heart was set on managing June, please do!

Thanks! That is encouraging. :) My AF was supposed to show on Sunday, had some heavy spotting Sat. morning so I thought I was out of the TWW. :( More spotting Sunday and a bit today but no AF.  This is torture! My hopes are getting up all over again, right when I had accepted that this wasn't our month.  Just took a test, BFN, so confused...I am 11DPO.

Hello everyone! My name is Dee, and I'm new to this site. I've been reading a lot of you ladies post, and I must say I've found a lot of encouragement in such a short time from you all. My first pregnancy resulted in a still birth in 2006 so I was fearful to try again. I finally found the strength this year to TTC. For most of this year my hubby and I have been trying every month, and then finally we decided to take a break. Well this month AF didn't come on the due date (and I'm never late) the 2nd and 3rd day very lite spotting only when I wipe. Day 4 and 5 AF was slightly heavier than day 3 with minor cramping, but not normal period flow. I've been very tired lately, frequent restroom trips, and my lower back aches....could this be it? I'm I pregnant???

Sending good thoughts your way Dee!

Thank you so much linnylou422

linnylou422 I would give it a few more days for the HCG to proliferate! It sounds like you possibly had implantation bleeding and that is when the placenta starts to produce HCG. FX and baby dust your way.

 

DeeBaby Sorry to here about your still birth.

If a test comes up negative I would just pass it off as a lite flow cycle. There are many reasons that this can happen. Recent illness, anovulatory cycle...etc, I would also make a doctors appointment to make sure everything is okay.

I would love it if someone started a June thread!  I'm just so excited to be moved from "waiting to be ready" to "waiting to O!"  TTC #3 has begun!  My heart is with all the others that have been on their journey for longer and I hope all of us have babes in arms next year!  joy.gif  (I used a lot of exclamation points.  I must be excited.)

Ladies the June thread is up and running! Please let me know where to put you in BOLD. The last thread wasn't maintained for three weeks and I have no idea who needs to go where. TeaJunkie I got you covered.

Hi Ladies! Our wedding has come and gone (Got married on Sunday! Woohoo!) but still not AF yet. I'm due tomorrow, have had some light cramping and not spotting but I'm not sure what's what at this point. I've been tracking everything like crazy, even the weird breast tenderness I had for almost a week about two weeks ago. We DTD twice a day (I'm on overachiever) during my fertile week leading up to ovulation. I'm going to stay positive and just wait to see red. 

 

In the meantime, I may pull back from tracking and just let things happen as they happen.
