Ok, here's some positive chants for all.
I don't really know how I'm feeling. I have been feeling a little fat. And last night I ate like a pig right up until I went to bed. But it could just be pms.
I don't have to go anywhere or see anyone for Thanksgiving, so I can just sit right here with dh and ds and obsess my little heart out.
I have to ask though, when do you all test. Should I go by cycle length (mine varies) or by luteal phase? I am thinking of waiting till 14dpo and if temp is still up, then testing. Or should I wait until, like, cd26 and then go for it? Which in this case would actually be earlier. I think I am cd21 now, 10dpo.
And thank you EnviroBecca for the reminder of what is really important.

Hi Everyone - I am now 10 dpo. Took a hpt this morning and got a BFN . Sad. I know it's still early, but it would have been so great...

Now having mild cramping again, hoping it's not AF coming. I'm leaving for New York tomorrow morning, so maybe she won't know where to find me . Hope I have great news for you all when I get back! Also hope you've got some for me . Take care all, and have a great holiday.

Hey all-AF found me tonight.

I don't know what was up this cycle, not even sure I O'd and my cycle was only 26 days. It has NEVER been that short. It is always 29 days, rarely 28. Since I wasn't sure if I O'd I told myself that I wasn't too optimistic, but here I am I think we are going to wait a few months before ttc again. Dh's job is going to be CRAZY next fall so we will try again in March for a December baby. I just feel tired and sad and I'm sorry I am whining.

Baby dust and love to all!

Sorry Aurora. Send you conception vibes for March. I'm thinking of waiting until January to try again, but I think a December baby would be great!

Still waiting here... :)

I'm sorry about AF, Aurora. Blah, no fun.

Well, I 'm keeping my fingers crossed for everyone!
I was lurking on the May Mamas thread (I like to punish myself!) in Pregnancy, and thinking, wouldn't it be great if we could start an August Mama's thread?! Sigh.

The only positive signs I have are: I was REALLY grumpy and evil last week, which is sort of what happened the first time...and my breasts are pretty darn sore. But, that could also be extreme PMS (and really early PMS). Who knows, I just sit here in limbo, but I 'm thankful to finally be able to try again!

Babydust to all!

Branwyn....why are you taking prenatals? They are really strong, and I thought unless pg, one should not take them??? Just a ???
post #50 of 105
my obgyn said i should start taking them. i just had 2 surgeries (1 in aug and 1 in oct) for endo, had to have 1 ovary and tube removed. when we went back for our post op he gave us the choice of taking some medicine that makes one go into menopause (temporarily) or to start trying right away (bc within 6 weeks it went from a small spot of endo on my tube to completely covering the ovary and tube). with the list of things he wanted me to do, on the top was to start taking prenatals...

I did the 6 month menopause medicine (Lupron) over the winter this past winter (Dec - May), and now I am ttc -- my endo doesn't sound quite as fast moving as yours. My doctor didn't want me to ttc right away because I also had a septum removed and he wanted my uterus to have a "good long rest". There was something else with my PCOS that made him want my ovaries to rest, too anyway....

For what it is worth, if it comes down to it, the 6 month Lupron seems to have really helped me, and I didn't have any of the terrible side effects that are common, in fact, I felt BETTER than I had in a long time while I was on Lupron. Hoping pregnancy helps even more than Lupron did!

Good luck ttc.....

Mamasoleil, I am taking prenatals too, figuring extra vitamins will help preventing any deficiency I might have gotten over the years. I used to think that I have a pretty good diet, so didn't need any vitamins. But after reading more (particularly 'Empty Harvest') and talking to people, I changed my mind on that one and use the prenatals now.

Aurora! So sorry that she found you :-( Always a bummer!

Kelly, I had a BFN with my first dd at 10dpo, and then a BFP at 13dpo and she was born 9 months later. So don't give up hope yet! Actually it is good to know that your trigger shot hormones are out of your system, so you can trust the BFP you will hopefully get!

I am either 12dpo (most likely), 4dpo (less likely, but not impossible) or just anovulatory (maybe???) My chart is at http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/13f56/ Today's temp is high, but I have a cold, so suspect it is just reflecting the cold, nothing more fun. Very confusing! At least I have a game plan for the next cycle (lots of testing, including HSG), so won't be upset as usual when AF shows up.

Karen-Thanks. Buckets of baby dust to you!
post #55 of 105
OMG OMG OMG!
I guess I was 12dpo after all.
I couldn't resist taking a test.
With afternoon urine.
It gave me a line!!! (first response). Within the time limit. Visible to the naked eye!!! (as opposed to having to tilt it just so or having to take it outside in the sun LOL)

Now what?

I have a hard time believing that this will last, but still at the same time, I am full of hope. This is pregnancy #6 for this year... At least I have a game plan for if it doesn't work out.

Karen, in shock

WHOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!

post #59 of 105
Yippeee!!!! (Doing a happy dance for Karen....)

Here's hoping we'll hear back from lots more folks soon with good news!!!!

I just came to check in and say how nuts I am going . I am 8dpo and my DP wants me to wait until 14dpo and test with her present.... I am going to have a hard time keeping that promise.... partly just because I want to know sooner (and test sooner) and partly because we plan to test at the clinic where I work (Planned Parenthood) and I am not so sure I want to have the whole clinic staff be there if I have to deal with a negative.....
sigh.... I need to talk to my DP to rethink this plan.... The biggest bonus of testing at work is it is free.

My doctor told me to wait 12 dpo for a reliable blood test and 14 dpo for a reliable urine test (feeling really whiney) : how come everyone else gets to test sooner????? I had a trigger shot and am taking progesterone.... is that it or is he just trying to be conservative and torture me?

sigh....

My DP's niece is here for part of the day and we just found out that her 16 year old step-sister is pregnant "Ooops"


GRRRRRRR ..... she is TOTALLY unprepared and uninterested in parenthood, but "the thing to do" is keep the baby....



Am I just evil to be so angry at how unfair it is????

Sorry to be a downer.....

Sending Karen some progestrone staying power powder.....
