Insomnia.... wool.gif

 

Looking at the Upcoming Test Dates, we should expect more BFPs.  There is a total of 18 ppl listed.  Even at a 20ish% success rate that would mean 3-4 BFPs, so there are another 2-3 to go!

 

I know technically I'm supposed to move on out of this forum to the preggo side, but I really, really, REALLLLLLLY want to see people cross that line!

 

nikwhit - sorry about your early AF.  I have no idea what you're referring to when you mention "tribes."

 

katealicia - How in the world do you know to do all those things?  Are you a ND (or similar)?... you certainly sound well versed in it.  Hopefully all your remedies get you out of that WTF section quickly! 

 

AFM:  nighttime nausea/insomnia is a highly unpleasant combo.  I ate *almost* a meal yesterday... should've known I'd pay for it.

I'm pretty sure I'm out greensad.gif I caved and tested today and its a definite BFN at 11DPO. Does this increase the odds of the others getting a BFP? Wishing the best for you ladies, I'm onto thinking about next month ...
post #305 of 647
Could anyone here possibly take a look at my first post and tell me what's going on? I'm really concerned
post #306 of 647
Had some nausea last night. Been getting more and more nauseas mostly at night. Not sure if I'm preg or not greensad.gif tested Thursday night and fri morning bfn so just waiting on cycle day 42. I never had nausea with my son so idk lol
post #307 of 647

I see the new obgyn Monday and I hope he has good answers and is understanding. DH and I have trust issues with doctors. Last thing I need is a doctor trying to push birth control on me again or pain supplements. I'm personally uncomfortable with the fact it's a male doctor, but the options didn't really exist. So here's hoping..
Hope this new dr can help. Chances are he'll be really good...so try to stay positive!!

i have not. You know my advice...take more tests!!

inna: don't leave us yet!! Take me with you!!

AFM: 7 or 8dpo. I'm still in bed and haven't peed yet. I know I should rid myself of this FMU before I waste a test!! No symptoms here. I do have a banging headache, but I admit I had a few drinks last night at a Christmas party. So that's probably the source of that. I hope we see at least a few more BFPs!
post #310 of 647

Sorry, the forum used to be uber busy, and we had "tribes" or groups, of women who related to each other...like a Plus sized tribe, Macca taking momma tribe, barefoot tribe, etc etc etc. I guess if you think about it, we are a tribe....yay!!! I love my tribe:) 

 

Ok, now, on to the TMI alert this morning. My DH last night had.......... ( I said TMI, right?) so much semen tht its still running out of me this morning. I mean a LOT!!! He never has that. I really think the macca is helping him!! He doesnt normally have a  small amount, but this was an insane amount!!! FX it was full of viable healthy fast swimming spermies:) He ended up making it home last night, thankfully:) 2 days in a row of temp drop....hopefully it spikes up soon, and we have caught O. We are going to do it every other night until confirmed O. 

 

Wow, I took a week off of the forum, and cannot believe how much I really did miss everyone and being here!!! I thought taking a break would help me, but it did the opposite lol!!! 

 

INNACIRCLE: Yay!!!!! Congrats!!! You can hang out with us, m sure there is no one talking on the birth board yet anyhow!!!

 

ALITTLEMISCH: Im sorry about the BFN:( I know people say you arent out till AF shows, but I think most of us here know our bodies pretty well and know if we can trust  an early BFN:( Tho I o hope it changes!!! Are you charting? How do your temps look? Dang this stayed underlined, and Im too lazy to fix it!!!

 

CELLMITH: BC can do crazy things to your body, especially at 19. Is there another form of BC you can try that wouldnt mess up your body? Also, you might get better answers on the Family Planning to NOT conceive hun. Good luck:)

 

SCJP: I think they are pretty well known for evps.....BUT, have you tested again? FX:)

 

Rosie:)Sorry about the banging headache!! Get up and pee on a stick woman!!! Yeah, Im an enabler,lol. 

 

 

Oh, and my chart, I think Im gearing to O:) Day 9 or 10, if I am that means Im just Oing early, and my LP is fine!!!

post #311 of 647

Got my period yesterday and have learned an imporant lesson about not remotely believing anything I think I feel. Please move me to WAITING TO O. Thank you.

post #312 of 647

TIFGA:Sorry to hear about AF:( 

 

AFM: Got 2 positive OPK's today, so am def O'ing early, and my LP is just fine:) I am saying my age has something to do with my new cycles, as I am considered premenopausal.

tifga - I really am sorry that you're having such a letdown following your IUI.  The TWW is like the dark forest - all sorts of tricks and evils lurking to fool you.  I think we've all been there and those odd symptoms are SO darned hard to ignore.  That's especially true when you've never had those things occur before.  I always attributed that stuff to having a fertilized egg, but then it doesn't implant properly.  Stats are high on that - it's something like 50-70% of fertilized eggs don't implant correctly due to chromosomal issues.  My AFs were a bit heavier afterwards when that happened too.  Keep your chin up, lady.  We're rooting for you. 

 

nikwhit - you sure are O-ing early, but your temps are pretty bottomed out down there so it seems to correlate.  Get busy!

 

katealicia - I know exactly what you mean about hating to not know what's going on.  I took that to the extreme with nursing.  I went back to school in my mid-30s to become a nurse and I worked in the most high-acuity ICU in a hospital that's ranked in the top 10 in the US.  I literally wanted the gauntlet so I would learn more and OMG it was so hard. 

I did all this bc I knew my parents were getting old and would need more medical care (they had me when they were in their 40's).  I didn't want to have no idea how to help them.  I learned so SO much.  I am now the family reference for anyone having issues.  Unexpectedly, I really liked learning what is truly serious.  So many times people just don't know if something is really bad or not.  I do... right down to the edge of life/death.  That kind of knowledge gives me a lot of confidence.  Also, it paid off and I was able to take care of my parents when they needed me.  My skills, knowledge, and experience at such a prestigious medical center (basically name dropping) made an enormous difference in getting what they needed.  It wore me out but it was worth every bit of effort in the end. 

It's obvious you are very dedicated to learning so please share if you find anything interesting and helpful.  We want to know too!

post #314 of 647
Nikwit- funny, i was thinking about the TMI info you shared and of course I got squeamish, at first I was like eww! But then, that's the defintion of TMI right? But then I thought about it and had to laugh because we go on and on about CM round these parts and that doesn't faze me. Anyway, I once read that men ejaculate about a few tsp worth... Just throwing that out there FWIW haha!

This forum did change a lot after two big developments, one the magazine is no longer in print so this site is run very differently by different people. Second, social media like facebook is where most people like to "talk" these days so forums are quieter. I was here when my son was a baby and it was very different and very active. (I contacted an admin and may be able to get my old account and delete one, but I may confuse all the lovely people on this thread and I spent my time on here before mostly talking about education and unschooling, no TTC back then.)

Inna thank you for hanging out and cheering us on. We need your mama vibes and your nurse vibes too and plus you drive the POAS party bus!

Tifga I totally understand and am so sorry AF came and made you feel so let down. This was my second cycle TTC. My first cycle I let myself believe every twinge and feeling (which was made harder by the actual symptoms I was feeling from my bad cycle) so it was very hard. Be kind to yourself, ttc is hard work.hug2.gif

WifeofAnt I miss you and all your research and statistics...

AFM- I was going to jump on here last night and say, "see I was right about moving my testing date, I'm starting to spot so AF ought to be here soon". But today I still had the "spotting" and its not even spotting. I only know its there because I check CP, so nothing has made it's way out so to speak. Its more like brownish CM. So of course I'm sure you all know where my brain is going... surely its implantation bleeding and I ought to still test... wild.gif Crazy making!!

I'm sorry...it seems so much more urgent when procedures/$$$ are involved. So I'm sure you probably feel more pressure to snag a BFP soon. I just think the timing was off. It'll happen!

AFM: took a test, BFN. But I'm not discouraged. There's like this stage of the TWW where BFNs don't bother me. Prior to 10DPO. But 10DPO or later, it starts chipping away at my hopes. So I may take another tomorrow, purely for scientific research purposes, but then I'll have to go back to my original testing plan. And I'm still 7-8DPO. Geez...this is shaping up to be the longest TWW ever... 😁

Sorry about that. I've been pretty out of it since I realized that I keep having anovulatory cycles. I have an appointment for a repeat pap (false positive last year) and I'm going to talk to my doctor then but I don't think she's really going to do anything but tell me to keep waiting. I have some red clover blossom capsules coming in the mail along with a saliva microscope. I'm going through my OPKs like there's no tomorrow and the microscope can be used indefinitely. I'm going to try to stop myself from buying any more supplements. I have one bottle of vitex left (I already took a whole bottle?!) and a bottle of maca root capsules. I think I could feel more in control if my doctor prescribed me Clomid and I just kept it on the shelf.

sarahviolet -that sounds awfully darned promising.  Yes, as per the protocol of a bunch of BFP starved TTCers, testing is now appropriate!

rosie - I have to commend you for taking your own medicine and testing early!  Even tho you got a BFN, at least you weren't internally asking yourself if you should test all day!  I looked at my walmarts here an they don't carry those First Signal tests.  There's probably some stupid law in Missouri that pregnancy tests can't be too cheap or something. 

btw your disclaimer is great!

 

AFM:  Thx for the extended invitation to stay on this thread awhile.  I had to wonder if anyone was thinking "why isn't she gone yet?"!!!

I believe 50mg of B6 is really helping me with nausea.  I took some late Friday night and felt decent all Saturday - enough to eat like a person and not a bird.  I didn't take B6 Saturday night (didn't think about it) and sure enough I woke up really nauseated overnight.  Today I cut the 50mg pill in half and took one part early and the other part late, and I seem to be able to tolerate more foods!  Some things still taste "off" but it's not frank grossness.  Maybe that trick will really work for me!

 

DH was supposed to go to DC and Chicago this week and only be gone for 3 nights.  However, meetings got changed and now he's going to be gone ALL week.  So it's me, myself, and the cats (that are kept in the garage now due to a pee party this summer). I was originally slotted to do this travel with him but I just don't feel up to it.  Besides, the only pants I'm comfortable wearing are some old fleece lounge pants that were my mom's.  That's not exactly city-chic wear, folks.  Vanity is not an issue for me, but I do draw the line at frumpy.  So at home I'll be in my lounge pants with greasy hair and pimples.  Oh the glory!

OB = Obstetrics (babies)

GYN = Gynecology (women)

I think *most* do both but you might be waiting a few weeks or even a few months as a "new patient", depending on your area. I had to wait almost 3 months to get an intake appointment with my family doctor. I wouldn't have gotten in at all but she was my mom's doctor and my son's doctor.
