Big congrats to WitchyMama2, MuhajibahMama, EllasMummy & OhMel!
bemommy - According to TCOYF, spotting does not count as your period. You should include those days in your LP.
doulanichole - So good to see you here. I'll be back more often as well, I suspect.
Do you have charts we can look at? I'm fairly adept at spotting what you're talking about.
Sleepymama - Big hugs to you, hon. I'm sorry you're not getting better help from your OB. A year is a long time, so I can understand your frustration. Have you been charting for the full year? You might want to take your charts to the RE, along with the section from TCOYF that is for providers. Let us know how it goes.
martinshockeymom - TCOYF talks about a 2nd surge of estrogen that can cause creamy cm about a week after O. There is also mention of what appears to be ewcm right before AF - it's actually the lining of the endometrium disintegrating. HTH!
Update on me:
I'm starting to get kind of sad. I was sure that this would be a short TTC journey, but alas it isn't so. Between my returning fertility and our 2 months of no bding, it's starting to seem like I'll never conceive. I'm reading through my TTC books again to get inspired, and I believe my fertility is pretty much back. I've had the world's worst PMS, and seriously don't think I'm PG (I'm not temping right now). I can't wait until this stupid cycle is over. I'm right there with all you gals in similar frustrating circumstances.
