So, the results of my blood test Monday were inconclusive (which means the hcg is so low they don't know). So I went back Wednesday and did another draw. The results of that test were positive, but my hcg was only 22, which is extremely low. I pretty much knew a m/c was inevidable. This morning, I miscarried. The funny thing is, since I have been told this would probably happen for the last four days, I actually feel okay about it. I am simply letting it go and looking forward to next month.
So I am going to *attempt* to catch everyone up on here. If I miss you, please remind me and I'll fix it. I am going to add my new expected o date, even though it won't be until later, I hope you girlies will stick it out with me.
I will now O around the 9th-12th I think, so DH and I will only be able to do it around the 5th and 6th b/c he will be leaving again for Denver after that, so perhaps some of the little guys will hang out for a while. Hey, it's worth a shot.
Here we go back ttc.
Thanks for all of your support everyone. This sure is a wild freaking ride.
So glad you're back and so positive. And yes - we'll stick it out with you of course!!! I think I'm going to O later myself, which would probably put my test date in mid-late Aug, but I'm not going anywhere either!

I'm obsessively checking my cm and it continues to be lotion-y for the past 2 days. I tend to spot for almost a good week before AF hits so I'm preparing myself not to freak if I see spotting.
2in09, I'm sorry it didn't work out for you this month. Good luck to you next month. I got pg with my first baby after only bd'ing once, 5 days before O so it can happen.
I'm trying to convince myself not to test at 10dpo and wait until 11dpo. I hate driving myself crazy seeing invisible lines, holding it up to the window, and basically driving myself crazy with uncertainty. It would be much easier to know for sure either way...
3 DPO all at once! Let's see some BFP's ladies!!!

Could I please be added to "waiting to test on 8/1"
I could probably test earlier than that, but am taking the Bar exam next tuesday and wednesday and certaintly don't need to add to my stress! that said, i am about to head over to a friend's cabin in the-middle-of-nowhere WI for the weekend of studying, so i will check back in with you ladies on Monday. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
GOOD LUCK on the exam!!!

I have my weird sex question to ask too!
Ladies: have you ever had a "tight" feeling down there, in the general region of your uterus/bladder? I really have no way to tell which one it is. Last night, before sex and for a few hours after, it just felt really tight, almost strained or something. I thought perhaps it was ovulation pain/something related to ovulations (got a + OPK yesterday), but I'm not sure. It has gone away this morning.
Maybe we've just been having too much sex--five days in a row and counting!
I really want to keep doing it every day up until Sunday.
Hopefully our respective organs can handle two more times!
I had that feeling last month. I chalked it up to O. I never felt it before, but I never really paid attn to this stuff before either - I was very out of tune w/ my body. Also, last mo would have been my 1st mo O'ing in almost 3 years, so maybe that also had something to do with it?

He said that was the only time he was doing it so hopefully that one time was enough, today's OPK is negative after yesterday's positive and temp was up .4 degrees from yesterday.
Who knows, according to FF I ovulated on CD8, and I've had three different sets of positive OPKs, the last two I checked against other brands to be sure.
Ha hahahaha!!! Hopefully it was WELL worth the drive!

However, with the smu I did not drink more than a few sips of water and again very positive opk. Should I test in the afternoon and not drink anything for 4 hour? Did anyone else ever get positives with fmu? The funny thing is the test did go negative on fmu on the 4th day of testing. Anyone an opk expert? I am currently using the first response but I had good luck on answer. So I may use the answer as a back up test.
Also, I am on clomid. Will clomid throw off my ovulation if I ovulate regularly? I am taking it for low progesterone and normally ovulate on CD 10-11. Has anyone had any experience with this?
Oh boy! I'm obviously the wrong girl to ask since I've been testing w/ FMU. Maybe we need someone to give us a lesson in OPKs!!
Well ladies, not much going on here. Noticing some CM changes, but that's about it. I thought I might O on Tuesday, but now looking at the calendar and the moon, will probably be closer to Friday. At this point I'll just wait and see though. Wish me luck in noticing all the signs and catching that eggie!!!
