post #401 of 495
Well still not had any blood nothing since nov 5... Cycle day 82. Sooooooooo ready for something to happen lol
post #402 of 495
I know that the doctor said the first cycle after a miscarriage is tough, but it's 2am and I can't sleep. The pain is god awful. Any natural remedies anyone would recommend? I was going to get midol but I stopped since I don't normally take anything.

Badwolf- no natural relief to offer except a heat pad/water bottle... I'm a believer in pain being less if you're well hydrated, but aside from that I take a paracetamol. I'm sorry you are suffering again.

Alive- sad for you too. Apeydef's words sound encouraging though. I really want us all to have growing treasures but this road is really tough.

Rosie- I'm in a routine re:charting. I haven't seen my temp spike above the rocky pattern yet but I'm only CD12 today, perhaps I'll paste my chart in if I can work it out?

Badwolf- you can try cramp bark. It's an herb you can find it in liquid form at most health food stores. And yes hot water bottle/heating pad.

Ok, i miscarried Jan 6th. Once my bleeding stopped i've had sex every day. We have only missed 1 day. Today I had some light spotting, mild cramps. It has been 20 days since the first day of my miscarriage. I'm hopeful and kinda scared it is implantation spotting. It seems too early to be my period. Or it could be left over bleeding from m/c? I'm confused. I guess time will tell. Any thoughts?

@OregonMoon periods can come back as early as 20 days after mc. All depends on if your hcg levels drop low enough so your body can reset. It's what my body is doing at the moment. Since the blood freaked me out I ended up at the ER, and that's how I became more 'educated' about what's happening right now. I also was hoping for implantation bleeding but nope. The sooner it happens the better you can track next possible ovulation days!

MotivatedMama - twins!  Wow, that is amazing and wonderful!

 

Alive - hugs to you.  That was a really long cycle - how frustrating.  

 

OregonMoon - I'm sorry for your loss.  It could be implantation, or it could be the other options.  Here is what I would do -- test NOW so that you can make sure the test is negative.  (If it is still showing you have residual hcg, then test each morning to make sure it is getting lighter.)  If it IS implantation, a positive test should show up within the next 2-3 days.  (If you had residual hcg and the test starts getting darker in a few days, then that also lets you know it was implantation.)  Good luck!

 

AFM 2DPO and feeling like this will be the cycle!

I'm CD 13 (wow, that late?) and I have no clue when I'm going to ovulate. It doesn't look like its going to be any time soon. Fertility Friend thinks around the 4th but I'm not going to put too much into that because last cycle was the first time I ovulated since Depo Provera and I could still be affected by it. I've been sort of depressed and confused lately. Nothing major but stuff in my head and I haven't been able to 'build my bridge and get over it'. If we don't get pregnant this cycle, we may be TTA for two cycles so we avoid December (DS's birthday and Christmas). Its not something I particularly want to do but DH has pretty strong feelings about it. I can't believe that would make our kids more than 4 years apart. Its surely not a gap I imagined when we talked about the kids we'd have. I guess, since I'll know by mid-February whether or not I'm taking a two cycle break, I need a new OP for February. Either I'll be pregnant or I'll be taking a break but I won't be here.

that has got to be beyond frustrating!!

motivated: WOW! That is amazing! Were you totally shocked? Did you see it immediately on the US and think "OMG - am I seeing what I think I'm seeing?"

Congrats to you @Motivated Mama !

post #411 of 495
I literally feel heartbroken right now. This cycle was so much harder because of all of our hopes and "good feelings". Otherwise I would have just been happy to finally see my period. I think we are going to stop trying to actively conceive for a while. Maybe we will plan a trip to Europe after all. I can't keep putting my life on hold hoping that something will happen.

Got the endo on the right side, and the endo on the left was sitting on a nerve. No wonder I was in pain. Anyways, I'm on the mend, no BDing for 2 weeks, but by then I should be on a fresh cycle. Please update me to waiting to o.

Siuann - I'm so glad it went well!  Surgery is scary any way you cut it (no pun intended, but...)!  You must be excited to know that you can start anew in 2 weeks and everything should be in perfect working order.  Congrats on a good outcome!

edubluv - It makes me happy to see that you are here and still giving it a go.  Your plan is excellent - you're controlling the controllables, which is all anyone can do.  Good luck on your TWW!

rosie - this is so true that we do get wrapped up in others' lives.  It is very disappointing when people don't follow through to update the ones who have been rooting them on.  I was following a thread (just reading along) on my ovacue monitor website.  I was essentially stalking the ovagraph charts of those who got preg in order to compare to mine.  Anyway, I saw a bit of a storyline forming and this one lady had a bad experience mc her first, and it knocked her down pretty hard.  She got preg again and posted often, then she had her u/s coming up (which is when she found out her 1st preg was a mmc) the next day.  She had been posting on there just about daily for what looked like months, but she went to her u/s then nothing.  NOTHING.  She finally posted 5 weeks later saying everything was great and peachy, while everyone on that forum was constantly expressing worry over her absence.  The only word that comes to mind in that situation is rude!

alive -  I really am sorry that you aren't where you want to be... it's been a tough road for you and you want it so badly!  I think you should absolutely plan your trips and live your life.  Babies won't have any issue popping up in the midst of all your plans! 

It seems particularly hard for you bc you put so much hope/energy into this last cycle and the work didn't equal the payoff.  Maybe you could adjust your thinking a bit.  Think of getting preg as a 6-month cycle.  There are ups and downs in that 6 months, but for many people your age there is an extremely high likelihood of pregnancy in that time period.  So stop thinking of it with all that monthly pressure... there's so much at play from hormones to chromosomes and it all has to be right, and it CAN'T be right every time either... that's just not the way nature works.  So stretch it out to that 6 months...  as if it's one big long cycle.  Doing so will give you a break from holding on so tightly and let you live in the meantime.  Best of luck to you - I hope you keep us updated!

 

jenjy - so you're 2+ dpo.  Oh man...  now 5 days of no man's land waiting and waiting!  I'll be watching to see how it goes.  Fingers crossed for you!

 

AFM:  still following along with your stories.  I'm dealing with lots of nausea and tiredness but it seems to be easing a bit (like 10% less).  Genetic testing in 2 weeks, or sooner if I reschedule it.  Technically I could get it as soon as tomorrow (10 weeks) but I've read of having issues with enough sample in the mother's blood that early.  Still debating that one... for some weird reason I'm just not in a hurry.  So odd. 

Anybody have spring fever yet?  I do!  I get so excited when I see a sunny day above 50 degrees!  jumpers.gif

innacircle: when I joined here in Sep, there was a lady that had just gotten a faint BFP. Betas were low. Had betas done two days later and it had doubled but barely, then that's it. No more updates. I still often think of her and wonder what happened or if her pregnancy is going well!

Thx for dropping in now and then with your support! I like hearing updates on your pregnancy! Where do you live? I haven't seen above 50 degrees in forever lol

@WifeofAnt so sorry for your down feelings! Try to keep your spirits up for your other baby.... As one who suffers from anxiety/OCD I know it's easier said than done but I do sympathize! I will take on OP next month if you PM and tell me what to do. I mean I have a general idea just give me details/tips. I think that you have been wanting to pass the job on for a while so I will take it in for you smile.gif I will also say some prayers.

Thank you innacircle that is a great way to look at it.

After a lot of tears and venting I am feeling a lot better. I know that our road is just starting and that worst case we have a lot of options ahead of us to have our family. I will be happy when AF leaves this one has been especially brutal after such a long cycle. Now I have even more time to get healthier and prepare financially.

Thank you for everyone support on here it really means a lot.

It took me 11 months first time. And I have 3 wonderful children now. I felt at times "it's never gonna happen." Other times I knew it would because I HAD to be a mother! It's so hard but hang in there!

AFM: I've been in a funk since the last IUI failed. I even went so far as to burst intotears in the middle of fFriday night service when the couple with the twin baby boys came in. I never cry. Ever. And I sobbed for 3 days after I got my period. This trying stuff is really tiring.
Anyways. I had my first cycle monitoring Wensday my follicle was 1.2 so I was worrying that something was wrong since I was 4 days from O (I know I worry a lot). Went back in Saturday was 1.5 and irregular (whatever that means my Dr.wouldn't explain) said they would call if the blood test.said serge but I needed to do an OPK anyways. Got a positive (1 day early) they called an few hours later saying the blood test showed my serge had just started andto come in for insemination Sunday. Woke up this morning to my temp. spike.
So here I am thinking very knocked up thoughts with my irregular follicle (we have nick named it lumpy space baby).
I started doing acupuncture this cycle and I am loving it I'm calmer and more energetic and my temps are starting to even out. They even recommended this really good book called The Infertility Cure.
Trying to think baby thoughts for me, husband, and lumpy space baby.

I started using the CBE fertility monitor this cycle and today I got my first "high fertility" reading. It's so silly but I got excited! It's just nice to see a "computer" validating what I suspect is going on in my body. I'm on CD9 (8 according to the monitor), and once this thing gets to know me, it should have 2-5ish days of highs and 2 peak days. I think I O around 15 or 16, so this lines up with my thinking anyway. I'm anxious to see what the rest of the week holds. It's nice just having something to pee on every day And I don't have to interpret the results! Lol!
post #419 of 495
So I think I am going to try using OPK's this month. It'd be nice to verify that my feeling on when I ovulate is correct. Does anyone have any recommendations on brands? At least I will get to fulfill my need to pee on something even if it isn't a pregnancy test lol.

Thanks for taking over for February, apeydef!  :love

 

alivewithyou, I think the online cheapies are great for OPKs.  I use Wondfo OPKs and I like them.  

 

tifga, sounds like your timing went well!  That's great news!  :bgbounce

 

rosie - I'm excited about your new gadget!  Keep us updated on its calculations!  

 

AFM- 3DPO and FF gave me those lovely solid cross-hairs that confirm.
