Oh my goodness!  What a roller coaster, scjp.  I have had an evap on a FRER but it was gray so it was pretty easy to tell.  I think a test now would be dark if that had been a positive test 4 days ago.  Or potentially a chem.  I am sad for you... :(   

 

Be sure to get as thoroughly checked at the dr as you are willing to go through.  I do not want them to brush you off!  Something is up and it's time to find out what.

Alright so I know I'm probably symptom spotting but has anyone ever had yellowish cm? I have never seen this before. Yesterday my cervix was low and hard and now it is already higher and softer. Does this mean anything in regards to pregnancy?

For some ppl this is normal CM. Not the case with you...so...I have read that for some women this is their first "sign". I don't recall in any of my pregnancies this being a sign. But that can be normal for me sometimes anyway, so I wouldn't call it a sign for me. But if you've never had it, I'd def be wondering too!

This is not abnormal for me but since it is for you it could be a sign of pregnancy! I got lots of yellow cm while pregnant! But it also could be a sign of a yeast infection or bacterial infection.

Hmm will just have to wait and see. I don't feel any infection symptoms or anything so is be surprised. 6 more days til I test.. So hard to wait lol.

Well I bet your pregnant!!!
post #367 of 495
Thanks! I never possibly imagined how difficult it would be to ttc. I figured as soon as I stopped the pill it would magically happen. I admire all the women who can try for years because I am going crazy and it's only been since October. smile.gif

Don't you "hate" those women that are all like "oh, I got pregnant first try!!" Yah...good for you. Ha!! I really am happy for them but sometimes I want to choke them out!!

Lol it is super frustrating or people that complain about accidentally getting pregnant or how terrible it is to be pregnant.

Is this cheating? Do you keep in anomolous data? I'm happier with it now than before, but don't want to fool myself into thinking I'm 'normal' if there's cause for concerns. I'm considering vaginal rather than oral temps next month to see if its more consistent. Thanks in advance- I wouldn't know where to ask without you all!
I spoke too soon! The last two days have been awful! Yesterday I was awake a minute before I realized I needed to temp. Then today I woke at 4, never really went back to sleep, so my temp was bonkers at 6:30. I'm going to use averages for these two days bc I KNOW the reading I got was unreliable...

Oh how I have complained!! I am kicking myself now! I swear to myself that I will not complain if I am lucky enough to have another baby! No matter how miserable I get!
post #372 of 495
Oh it's okay to complain we are all human but when people post it all over Facebook It's frustrating because there are probably a ton of women who would trade them in an instant. I just know we are going to be super grateful and appreciate every little moment when it happens. smile.gif

I was one of those women who got pregnant first cycle (without trying) only now I'm feeling a lot more understanding because I was completely expecting the same again, and was so upset when AF arrived... again and again. I'm now on cycle 6, and imagined by now I'd have a wriggling bump greensad.gif

Reading that back I sound so miserable! I'm not, honest, I'm just finding the optimism waning a little. I haven't even O'd yet so this cycle could be the one smile.gif I'm going to savour every second of my future pregnancy, those weeks just fly by. I'd love to be pregnant and time go slowly (so I could stretch it over, say, two years?!) because its likely my next pregnancy will be my last.

I totally understand the anger towards those who get preggers easily. Some of my high school 'friends' have gotten pregnant recently, and whined for the longest how they never wanted to go through it themselves. How they would rather a surrogate or adopt or no kids at all. And now every day, sometimes more then once, they post a belly shot. Don't get me wrong, I did that when preggers with Connor, but once or twice a week max. They're also the ones who got married due to getting pregnant. Ugh. I'm ranting. Sorry ladies.

I need next week to get here so I can know if my cycle is going to happen or if I should test or not think of it. What do you ladies think?

I was hoping it'd be magically instant because the rest of my family is (apparently) so fertile.  My sister has two boys and went through 3 cycles to get her first baby, and got pregnant with her second the first try!  I'm already an impatient person, so this is driving me nuts!

Fortunately I don't see a lot of it on FB as quite a few of my friends aren't there yet in life... or at least they aren't telling!  I am however really lucky that my two best girlfriends (one who is single, one who is married but childfree) are really supportive and REALLY excited about it.  I wish those supportive relationships for all of you gals!

Hey everyone,

 

I'm ready to be moved to waiting to o. But I have a feeling it will be a while, my periods are still super screwed up after my 2nd miscarriage and my cycles are still anovulatory. I'm tracking everything on Fertility Friend but not temping because I don't want to drive myself insane.

 

Here's hoping for a short stay, but I feel like I ought to settle in. Could be a while.

post #377 of 495

MakeItSew - as nice as it is to see you again, I am sorry you have to be back here.  :Hug 

 

Can I please be moved to waiting to know?  Positive OPK and a temp spike = :joy

 

Dancingmama, are you doing test dates?  If so, I'll start testing on Feb 1 at 8 DPO.

It's official. My body reset today. And like a scared idiot, I went to the ER without thinking. Whadya know... My hcg levels are below 5 so my body has 'recovered' and is starting a real cycle. I only freaked because I woke up with blood in my bed in a strange quantity. The oh so lovely doctor newbie intern pain in my ass who tried to give me an Advil told me to expect heavy bleeding, straining cramps and severe pain. I'm guessing I should be happy?

When I told them I don't take pain pills of any sort, they joked that they didn't want to be around when I have birth. Ughhhh. So now I'm in bed with the heating blanket and feeling like there's an erupting volcano in my stomach. I've had 2 other miscarriages and my returning cycle NEVER felt like this. Blah.
