I go in the afternoon this Thursday.since I have irregular cycles so I won't see AF until after I take the provera.

Okay. So let me start with I like this new obgyn. Him and the his nurse kept me entertained while doing my pap and other exams. (I have issues with a male doctor I don't know touching me.) Lots of blood tests done. All of my results will be back starting tomorrow and Wednesday minus my pap. That will take up to 10 days.

Onto the info he could tell without many tests.. I'm doomed for early menopause. That's why the two day heavy bleeding cycles are happening. So we get to figure out a game plan to make sure I have my 3 babies. To start, new prenatal vitamins. In two weeks when we go back, next step gets taken.

Saraviolet: Yeah, its amazing the TMI info we share these days:) Same last night though, it wasnt his normal couple of teaspoons, it was like  over a cup, hahaha. Im attributing it to the Macca:) And yay for brown spotting!!!!!!! Pee on a  stick!!!!! FX:)

 

Innacircle: Getting busy:) I even had him eat some oysters last night, since we have a Low T issue, he hated them, but he loves me and ate them like a champ,lol. I reminded him how many pills I pop a day for him, and how I get up and stick a therm up my girly:) He quickly ate the oysters with no fussing:)

 

Rosie:Sorry about the BFN this morning, but you are right, its way early:) I know everyone says everyones bodys are different, and not to get upset at a 10 dpo BFN, but I do, because with all my others i was able to get a positive at 8-9 dpo. I think all womens bodys are different, and we who have had many children, or have been TTC for a while, know them better than most woman know there bodies. Keep up your "scientific research," and fingers crossed for you!!!

 

SJCP: Wow, that is a long cycle. I cant remember , do you have PCOS? I would give  a call and see if they can jump start your AF:( Sorry you are dealing with that:(

 

MOTIVATED: Yeah, Im a total POASA, I cant wait, if Im out, I literally go to the Dollar store and buy more. I try to stock up before I know its testing time tho:)

 

 

 

AFM: All my OPK's were pos yesterday, and today are negative. does that mean I o'd yesterday or sometime last night? Still a soft line, but not positive. My first month using OPK's so wasnt sure. Also, can my testing date be set as the 22nd? I will be 9 DPO, and am hoping that this cycle i can at least get a test in before AF starts freaking wearly again:( 22 day cycle was NOT my favorite!!!

I'm sorry for your bad news.  I'm really curious how he could determine that you're doomed for early menopause?

There's no way to tell for sure when you O'd, but it's likely anywhere between 12-48 hours after your positive OPK. Hopefully this will all corroborate with a rise in temps.

The dollar store was out of tests and I'm only on CD20 of a 28 day cycle. I decided to buy the FRER at the grocery store. I've never actually calculated when I ovulate, but if it is on day 14, then I would only be 6DPO and that is a Big Fat Positive.

MotivatedMama - Oh my goodness, it sure does look like it!  Wow - the force must be strong with you to get a line at est 6dpo night time.  Congratulations!!  I guess all those feelings of being preggo were right after all. 

post #348 of 647
I know - 6 DPO can't be right. I must ovulate early. Or maybe it's twins? yikes2.gif I'm trying to get up the nerve to tell DH. I'm still in shock. Of course, it's been like 10 minutes.
post #349 of 647

Wow, I hope you got a 2 pack of tests.  I can't wait to see the line tomorrow morning on FMU!  That's just nuts!

btw - I see you are from Maine.  I think it is absolutely beautiful there and reminds me of Alaska minus the mountains (I lived in AK as a kid).  My DH and I are strongly considering buying a house on the coast in the next 3-5 years.  Seems like a good place for families.

Oh I'd go in there just fanning my nails, remarking "ya know that baby making thing... no sweat."

I don't think I have pcocs or however u spell it lol I have looked up symptoms and stuff and only things irregular cycles I have
post #352 of 647
Hi ladies is it possible to get ewcm on cd24 but not have ovulated? I don't get any ewcm until this point although it does get watery. This is the second time this has happened to me and I know a change in hormones can cause this but if this is happening that means my cycle is good right? Either way we tried yesterday and will probably cover our bases again tonight.

Alive - you are right on track with that being a secondary estrogen surge after O.  However, a little extra BDing doesn't hurt!

 

 

MotivatedMama - did you tell him yet?  Big excitement tonight!!!

post #354 of 647
Thank you that makes me feel better. smile.gif honestly I just feel calm this cycle. No symptoms or anything but I just feel at peace. My mom never had strong pregnancy symptoms early on so maybe it's genetic ha ha. Idk either way I am happy this month I am just excited to see some BFPs.
post #355 of 647
Alive I agree with innacircle. Sounds normal!

innacircle I didn't tell him yet, but he's already convinced, so I think I'm just going to sit on it a few days and wait until he asks me if I've tested yet again. Maybe a good, extra, Christmas present. Also, Maine is a wonderful place for families; however, there is not much for work (good paying) here. Cost of living is high too - gas and oil and all that. Still, I wouldn't trade it for anything. My father is a self-employed master heating technician. That certainly helps. smile.gif
post #356 of 647

Hmmm trying to talk myself out of testing tomorrow. I know I should wait... but the BBs are very tender and I'm not on progesterone... and I've felt all sorts of dull cramps/pulling in the lower abdomen but none of my regular AF symptoms... Tomorrow will be CD22. And if I O'd on CD 10 then it would be 12DPO... Of course if I O'd as late as CD14 then it would only be 8DPO...

I only have two FRER's here... if it was a $store test then I would for sure, but I don't want to waste something more expensive on a maybe.... Thoughts?

This is one thing I like a it ovuline...it does track CM for you and tells you when it's diff than your baseline or if it's right on track...

Motivated Mama - you are like me in your ability to sit on info.  It drives my husband nuts!  He can't keep anything from me.  Such a goof.  How long do you think it will be till your DH asks?

As for Maine, work is not an issue.  DH only needs an airport within a couple of hours so he can fly to see clients or to corporate HQ.  Mostly though, he works from home.  It's a really nice gig and we're truly very fortunate to have that kind of freedom.  It's what allowed me to take care of my parents when they were sick (out of state).

From my cursory investigation, it looked like taxes were not so pretty.  It's like that in MO too.  You'd never guess how expensive it is to live in this state (and we came here from the Los Angeles area).  The people around us are very pretentious as well, so we're pretty much at nil friends here.  People in my n-hood look at me like the red-headed step child bc I don't put granite in my kitchen, or tote a huge Coach purse.  I think it's all pretty ridiculous.  I did not get the gene that makes me want to impress people for the sake of looking rich.  Gross!  I can afford the same things they do, but I still shop at walmart and the thought of that embarrasses them (they've actually said this)!  It's very isolating to not care about keeping up with the Joneses here.  The irony is we don't even need to be here!  However, with #1 on the way at 40 I like the proximity to the medical center.  So we will stay put for as long as we can stand it.  Some days, that's not very long at all.

delighted - you know what we all say.  TEST.  Just once though - saving that other FRER.  You've felt good about it all month, so why fight it?

 

rosie - I had to go to WM tonight to pick up some Crisco (my DH forgot to tell me he scraped the can clean b4 putting it back in the cupboard).  And you know what's right next to the Crisco section???  The HPTs!  I found those First Signal tests there and I bought 4.  It looked like they just stocked them.  I will send the test pics to my husband while he's in DC to reassure him.  He's such a nervous nelly!

I have ovuline but nothing happened when I entered in the cm info. Sometimes it just feels too much like guesswork you know.

I forgot to say that in Maine, the heat man is probably just about the most important person you could know!
