Where are you at in your cycle16, no O in sight
Appointments: Not till next week!
Symptoms if they apply: You mean the lack thereof?
Testing: Someday over the rainbow.
Thoughts: lots!

On my first pp cycle, ttc #2, have three angels, two dd's (2.75 and 7 months) with a lot of previous fertility problems.

question for soy users: how many mg did you take? I'm a clomid user, had to use it with progesterone to get pg and stay pg with both my girls' I tried vitex and other remedies to no avail last time. I have very very low progesterone combined with short lps. Thanks!

Welcome Jill, I hope your stay will be short!


AFM: I think I am about to ovulate, keep your fingers crossed for me! Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Appointments: acupuncture wednesday
Symptoms if they apply: n/a
Testing: not until the 2nd week of Nov.
Thoughts:My cycle is really long (average 54 days) and I usually o around CD 42. FF thinks I o'ed CD 34 & I'm sure that o date will keep changing. I'm just patiently waiting for my temp to spike. I have been working on completing items on a list I made of things I wanted to finish before becoming preg. This weekend I just painted our room (with low VOC paint), another item to check off. If I can bath my dog today ,my list will be complete!

Monday check in:
Name: BCMomma
Date: 10-27
Where are you at in your cycle: CD 49
Appointments: I think I'll get my doctor to order some blood work if I ever start a new cycle again :
Symptoms if they apply: Little bit bloaty/crampy here & there. I had some ewcm almost 2 weeks ago, and we bd'd a bunch, but it was the second time this cycle that's happened, so I don't know...
Testing: had a BFN on Saturday...maybe in another week I'll test again
Thoughts: I'm frustrated to not be confident that I've ovulated at all, and to have a couple of really long cycles in a row- I feel like if I am ovulating, it might only be happening 3 times a year or something, and it's a little annoying. Lately I feel like I'm coming to terms with the idea of being a family of 3, and thinking of all the great things about only having one. I think I've got another 6 months of trying before I'm done- I always said that if ttc proved challenging, I'd be fine with one child. Anyway, I'm just waiting for AF so I can get some tests done, and maybe try the Soy Isoflavones as well

Where are you at in your cycle: CD 9, waiting to O
Appointments: Next one is Mid-November
Symptoms if they apply: N/A
Testing: Not for a long time
Thoughts: I'm hoping that the EPO I'm taking this cycle helps reverse what the Clomid has been doing to my CM. I'm actually feeling slightly hopeful this month.

Astar, yay for finishing your list! What kind of paint did you buy?


Deb, so sorry you are having a rough time. I would be very frustrated too if DH was not up to performing "on command".

Name: Jennie
Date: 10/27
Where are you at in your cycle: CD14
Appointments: None, though I should call the midwife
Symptoms if they apply: cervix and CM seem really fertile... it's early in my cycle but I have been trying teas and supplements so maybe? :
Testing: Dunno yet, though I will start OPKs today
Thoughts: I hope this is it. I have a lot of hope because of Cheri's prediction and the fact that it seems like O is coming earlier this time. We'll see. Trying not to be excited, you know?

thank you

my spelling's not really the problem (my german spelling isn't good either *lol*) - i'm often missing words and have and awful grammer my mum keeps correcting me, can get really anoying. I just don't have the practice anymore.

@ snow~pea - hope it woun't take too long anymore

You all have these fertillity friend link's in your signatures -- i signed up there but i'm having problems getting threw -- is there maybe a tutorial thread here in the forum?

Monday Check-In

Name: alicewyf
Date: 10-27
Where are you at in your cycle: CD 10
Appointments: I see my OBGYN tomorrow for a consult on my low progesterone last cycle on 8 DPO (it was 4.9). I am hoping I will have at least this cycle to try things naturally. I am see-sawing with myself on trying progesterone or not if she offers it to me to take after O. I am pretty sure I am not ready to take Clomid. We'll see what she says!
Symptoms if they apply: n/a
Testing: November 10th.
Thoughts: I am currently taking Vitex and am seeing results already. My libido has increased during the follicular phase of my cycle. If you look at how much I had sex last cycle vs. the current cycle, you can definitely see a difference! I have also noticed a correlation between drinking RRL and sex drive in my follicular phase. I plan to drink RRL up until I get a + OPK, and take the Vitex throughout my cycle. I am also still on B6, but it hasn't seemed to do anything yet w/r/t the length of my luteal phase.

Oh, thats really nice of him! Were you happy with how it went up? The smell? We are going to be painting eventually and are planning on using a low-voc or no-voc paint, so I was just wondering about your experience with it. Thanks.


Binkin, yay for an earlier o! I noticed you got a positive opk today. Do you normally use opk's?


Alice, good luck at your appointment tomorrow.

Where are you at in your cycle: CD19
Appointments: none this week
Symptoms if they apply: just pre-o stuff
Testing: n/a
Thoughts: I am pretty sure I am about to O, if I didn't already. I am thinking today actually, because my cervix seems to have closed up shop so to speak. If I get a spike tomorrow I will know for sure. I am super psyched about it too, because that will mean two "normal" cycles in a row!

Testing: wouldn't be till the middle of november...gosh that seems like an eternity away
Thoughts: I am not as "gung ho" this cycle. I don't know why, Last one i was ALL geared up and laid out my pretty panties and tempted and check cm but this one I am like "eh whatever..." i don't know why....is this a bad sign should I be alarmed? I wouldn't be sad if I got pg, I am just not like freaking. maybe since it didn't happen last cycle it sort of took the wind outta my sails.
