post #102 of 495
Hello ladies, ttc our second. I'm still learning the lingo and am tracking cycle length and cf but not consistently tracking temps yet, but plan to.

Technically I'm waiting to ttc until February but I know I can learn a lot from you ladies and want to follow along.

Looking forward to connecting with you all. Best wishes for everyone on this journey.

Well, AF showed up. I guess I'm back to waiting to o. Ugh. I hope my docs appt next mon brings some answers about the pain I've been having. I'm starting to get really depressed about all this. The pain doesn't help but AF is insult to injury it seems. DH is so sweet about things, but its hard to do any BDing (in the right window or otherwise) when he can tell I'm in pain from it. Kinda puts a damper on things.

inna: Thanks for keeping the testing days going while I've been MIA.

 

greenest: Congratulations!!!!

 

AFM: We moved on the 1st in the middle of a snowstorm and life has been rather hectic since. I haven't been able to keep up with temping, so purely based on CM I think I'm ovulating soon or did recently. Our work schedules haven't allowed for many BD opportunities, so I'm thinking this month is a long shot. I should be getting AF around the 19th or 20th. If I don't have it by the 22nd I'll test, but I'm really just expecting AF this month. DH wants to actively prevent the next couple of cycles. We both work retail and having a late October-December baby would be pretty stressful. My next cycle would probably be okay, but he's still a little unsure so we'll discuss it a bit more.

Thread Starter 

I feel totally, completely, 100% out this month. I just want to get over this cold (11 days and counting) and get through life until April. We're living on reduced pay until March and probably won't catch back up until April.

Sorry for you too. It seems out nice run of BFPs has come to a screeching halt. Maybe your dr will have some answers for you. Let us know.

Let us know what you decide. It would stink having to put things on the back burner. My mind plays tricks on me and I start freaking out thinking "what if that was the good egg?!?!" Lol! Maybe you'll get prego this coming cycle and you won't have to worry about it!

Good for you! Are they just doing a preg test or maybe some hormonal tests too? I hope you do get that rare mysterious elusive BFP that doesn't want to show on hpt.

AFM: idk if I've O'd or not. I assume so so plz move me to TWW. I've been charting for approx 10 days now but I've only temped two times I felt were reliable (after lots if sleep, wasn't sick, around same time). Although if I had to guess, I'd say it looks anovulatory. But (hope I'm not jinxing myself) I've never had ovulation issues that I'm aware of. So there's that. Still mad at DH. We might be done TTC after this last debacle. He's not into it an I'm finding myself angry at him half the time greensad.gif Breaks my heart to think the dream is abruptly over...

I tested this morning just to see on an 88 cent first signal test
From Walmart and bfn greensad.gif I'm so tired of this cycle!!!! I'm on cycle day 64 and driving
Me crazy!!!! Lol can't wait for Thursday some answers!!!
post #113 of 495
I officially snapped and broke down on Sunday about how this is making me feel. A lady at church who we are close with knew I was pregnant before I knew. Old Italian ladies know all. After church she approached me and told me she was sorry for our loss, without us telling her. She then proceeded to say that the next one will be here very shortly. Creepy yes, but what can you do? I mentally got to the point where I was biting everyone's heads off. Including DH. I feel bad but at the same time I don't. DH was refusing to acknowledge what happened and what it was doing to me. We talked and it helped somewhat. I'm still bitter though. :/

We got a call from the fertility clinic the blood test to confirm ovulation came back positive (22.1). Which is a relief I was so worried the teat was wrong because it was 4 days early. Maybe all the symptoms this month aren't just in my head. Thinking of testing Friday (13dpo) but I'll probably just wait for the blood test on Monday.
post #117 of 495

edubluv - Did you test?  What did you end up finding out from the bloodwork your ND did? 

 

jenjy - I'm glad your puppy training is going well!  That would be stressful trying to manage with a pup that has probs which are a bit scary (but you know probably developed from being mistreated somewhere along the line).  I help a neighbor with her St. Bernard puppy... she's in school (post divorce) and is gone for long stretches sometimes.  I had forgotten how rambunctious puppies can be... this one is not only feisty but quickly getting HUGE.  Luckily they are very big into puppy training as well so that helps and I can see big improvements all the time.  It is hard work though!

 

scjp - I am very anxious to hear your results from the doc's office.  Fingers crossed for BFP in the blood.

 

rosie - DH?  BDing?  What's up and how'd it end up?  Has any large sparkly jewelry shown up yet?  It so super stinks that you are being/feeling derailed... Does he not have his heart in it to have another child? 

 

AFM:  I started exercising again yesterday after about a week's break.  It felt really good to be active again, but I can def tell that I'm not operating at peak fitness!

My eating habits are terrible in that I find myself overeating.  I have always, always been a grazer and eater of small portions, even at mealtime.  Now when I eat it's like that signal for fullness is broken/missing.  I let that happen for 4-5 days and it was terrible bc I felt so overstuffed and uncomfortable... I've never dieted before, but looks like that's about to start.  I've got to maintain some kind of portion control... but to be honest even my double portion is less than what most ppl eat.  I'm just a weirdo that way - I like really high calorie foods in small quantities!

 

Thursday morning is my first MD appt.  I called today and confirmed that there will be an ultrasound.  My husband is SO excited... he just told me he took the whole day off work.  Seriously... the whole day.  He gets way more time off than he can ever use, so I guess it's OK but still funny!   Figuring maybe we'll use the rest of the day to run errands & do some grocery shopping. 

 

On a separate subject, we're finally getting a break from the subzero temps this afternoon... I'm glad that's over with.  :cold  I've felt like a prisoner in my own house bc it's too cold to go anywhere!

Waiting for her to call me.  She said everything was looking good with my first blood draw and then on Dec 26 (CD 21) she drew blood to check progetrone.  Waiting for her to call me and tell me what my levels were at.

Me crazy!!!! Lol can't wait for Thursday some answers!!!

your mystery cycle is making me wonder!  my 32 day cycles are driving me crazy, cant imagine 64 days.

 

AFM: WAITING TO (efffffing!!!) O again.  Seriously, I am sad right now. I don't get it.  I have been doing OPKs but I have been focusing on EWCM too.  My EWCM doesn't seem to be as abundant as it used to be but then again I wonder if all the BDing right around that time makes a difference in what I notice coming out, YKWIM?  I definitely have hormonal stuff going on.  My cycles are long-ish I have been told.  32 days.  it seems like pure torture waiting to for that time of the month to come again.  Seriously, bang my head against a wall.  it doesn't help that EVERYONE I know is pregnant.  It is sooooooo crazy making.  My BFF and my SIL to put the cherry on top. I have acne every two weeks with O and AF.  They are painful and on my chin, jawline and neck.  WTF?

 

Supplements I am taking are: Luteal Phase2 (from O to day 28), Gymnema, Chromiun picolinate, Ovex, and a prenatal.  I have been looking at Vitex and Maca but I don't know how they mash up with the ones I am taking.

 

Can someone look at my chart and tell me what you think?  I am still above coverline but I think it may be due to the fact that I took Luteal Phase2 a bit past day 28; that and the fact that I never sleep uninterrupted. Oh and I changed to a new thermometer on Jan 6th.

He has it in his heart to have another child. He just doesn't want to do the work. He just wants to leave it to destiny and see if it happens. He's totally fine if we don't have another. I, on the other hand, got all excited about another. I think it's super shitty to give me the hope of another and now just take it away. No bling or even flowers. We're still not speaking. I can stonewall like no other and I'm so hurt and depressed that I don't even care if we make up soon greensad.gif this is the longest we've gone without speaking.

Good for you on working out again. I hear it helps with energy. But I've never been a work out type of gal. I have a high metabolism and eat what I want and manage to stay thin. Ppl hate me for it, but I got lucky. I guess it helps too that I'm like you in that I always eat several small meals a day. I also don't like chocolate and rarely eat sweets. So awesome that you're having your first US tomorrow! Let us know how it goes!! How far along are you now? If you're less than 7ish weeks, don't be worried if they can't see a heartbeat yet. But you should be able to see a sac at least (I think). But maybe you'll get lucky and see the little ticker!
