OMGoodness .... CONGRATULATIONS LADIES! smile.gif
post #102 of 273

Busy few days! Congratulations newgirlintown, jayray, and tantalyn!

 

afm, I have no idea what is up with me. There was a little bit of blood the last day or so. I'm at 15 days post D&C, and the bleeding from that stopped after 3 days. I didn't chart for the first half of the month because I couldn't find my thermometer (d'oh) and had to get a cheapie from CVS. Now my temps seem really high and a little all over the place but there's really not enough data to tell. In the past I only barely hit 98.0 degrees after O, and I've been in the mid to high 98s for the past few days.

It's possible you O'd again already. I don't know the story of your D&C, but is it possible that your hCG hasn't dropped to zero yet? That would also cause elevated temps.

post #104 of 273

Ah ok, that seems totally possible that there's still some hCG. We had an ultrasound at 8 weeks 3 days that showed no heartbeat, and I had the D&C (really a D&Vacuum, but details) at 10 weeks. I'm guessing I had a lot of hCG in my system at that point.

 

I feel so thrown off by the D&C. My periods before were a bit long but generally fairly predictable. Now I just don't know what to expect. :/

Congrats on the BFP!!!

 

Well I finally got my dizziness under control with some sea bands.. I feel sooooooooooooo much better. Not normal, but better much much better. My raw goats milk seems to be calming my tummy down a little....I still have lower backaches (very abnormal for me), but it's tolerable. I'm going to try and hold off until Sunday to test. It will be what I think is... 10DPO (or when I think it was).. CD 22 and I usually get AF on CD27-30. I got a really early test that is suppose to detect up to 6 days before AF with (says 68% of pregnant woman will get a BFP 6 days out)

Fingers crossed for you Activia! I was not feeling well at all in the end of my TWW last time and with a 17 day LP I was mega disappointed when nothing materialized. I really really hope this is something for you!

I am sooooooo cautious about getting excited yet because I have been having chemical after chemical, I am sure of it. I had a chemical before my miscarriage in April. So...I don´t know how to let my guard down. I dont have any symptoms either except for maybe slow digestion. 

 

Congrats newgirlintown!!!!!

Hopes and prayers for everyone else!!  It's a crazy process!

 

Yay! Congrats Jayray!!!

Ohhhh I'm still hopeful for you monkeyscience! I'm glad your LP stretched out and hasn't come up short! When are you going to test?

Temping is a bit messed up scjp1109, you guys the spike when you ovulate and while BD is totally preferred when you get it and the day after, it's usually better to be BD before it as well. And you won't be able to tell you O'd until you have three high temps in a row after that spike. :(

Congrats manysplinters!!!!

Hubs still super excited- to the point that he told me we must do the winery visit and hike this weekend since I won't be drinking anymore LOL

 

I'm feeling a little excited too but we'll see.

 

Fingers crossed for you Mo! I really hope that this is it for you!

Worried that having IUD complications may make this a little hard for us.. We want our first baby girl so badly!

 

Welcome RoseMomOf2boys. Please ask if you have any questions :) TTC = Trying To Concieve, BD = Baby Dancing or DTD = Doing the Deed, AFM = As For Me, LP = Lutal Phase, DPO = Days past ovulation... Hopefully that's a help! I know there's a list around here somewhere with more... Hopefully your stay is short!!!! Let me know where you would like me to put you on the first post :)

I'm so sorry MakeItSew. I've heard that D&C's can really mess up a woman's cycle for a few months, sometimes less and sometimes longer. I hope that yours regulates and figures itself out soon!

UPDATED TO HERE!

 

 

AFM: I still have no clue what's going on....http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/28bb6f I really thought I was going to O there on CD 16 or 17 but nope... I'm thinking it's another annov cycle :( I just wish AF would show so we can start anew, or I would ovulate. But I'm really over BDing right now... probably because I'm going through so pretty big panic attacks with MIL moving to town. 

post #109 of 273

Congrats on all the BFPs, everyone!  May your pregnancies and births be healthy and peaceful.

 

I'm feeling a bit sad and lost.  AF is due tomorrow or Sunday and I don't have a single pregnancy symptom.  gloomy.gif  My chart was so pretty this month and our timing was so perfect!  It has never taken this many cycles to get pregnant.  This is a particularly sad development because I had said that this would be our last cycle trying.  Now I'm faced with the dilemma of whether or not to continue trying for a 3rd.  So happy for everyone else, though!

post #110 of 273
Well my temp has stayed up in the 98 range. Since I got the first 98 reading. So it's been 3 days. So maybe I did ovulate well we bd the day after and a few days before maybe that will be enough lol
post #111 of 273
Delightedbutterfly Thank you! As for the First post placement I think I belong on the "waiting to O" orngbiggrin.gif assuming that means waiting to ovulate. wink1.gif
post #112 of 273

wow congrats to tantylyn also! joy.gif August is turning out to be a very positive one for babies especially this week, wish I was testing this week now!

 

Teajunkie fingers crosse AF stays away and you get a surprise BFP! Maybe symptoms will start later for you?

 

I am 4 DPO and starting to feel slightly impatient already, when I was calmer yesterday about it, annoying. I will try not to test until AF is due which is a whole week away yet. It's so hard not knowing either way. At least the weekend is here!!

Awwww huge hugs! If it helps any, the times I've been pregnant have been the times without symptoms! Can I ask why the deadline?

Here's hoping that the weekend is full and keeps your attention off of wanting to POS's lol

Not a lot of time for personals now, (it's date night - Redbox-style!) but now that I FINALLY told my husband... I got a BFP this morning! yikes.gif

 

Everything is so different from when I got pregnant with my son - no cramping at all, temperatures kind of crazy, but that line is clearly visible without even picking up the test stick. And I took another one this afternoon, since I have 20 of them, and it was also clearly there, though fainter. Hoping this little one sticks, but for now... I am pregnant!!!!!!

definitely intriguing! Do you have any more plans to tests coming up?
post #119 of 273
Well I tested this morning and got a bfn greensad.gif but that's okay
post #120 of 273

Can anyone explain why FF isn't giving me crosshairs when I have had a raised temp for now 5 days and should be 5DPO, that is according to my temps AND ovulation test and ewcm days. I'm a bit puzzled by this...maybe I didn't temp enough lower temps before the rise? I only did a few days before it as was away on vacation. Could that be why?

 

scjp fingers crossed for you!
