Anyways, I'm starting to feel a little bummed. Like, I really think I'm pregnant, but now I'm thinking I'm scared about how I'm going to manage it. :-s I'm chickening out, I think... except you can't really chicken out of being pregnant. I'm really not sure if I want a bfp or a bfn... And I don't even know which one I want more. It changes from hour to hour. :-s Gah. I wish I could just KNOW already so I could figure out and plan my life!
Thanks for the link, I love it!
Sometimes I feel the same as you, Samantha. Don't worry, we'll be fabulous Moms Take care!

Not a problem! I love that site... although it does tempt me to POAS way early because I see some people with positives!

But yeah, it's kind of nerve wrecking. Even when you're planning a baby, it's still scary! I should have my tests in the mail today. So, yeah. Hopefully I do. I'm holding it until I get the mail (and have been since 11pm last night!) just so i can take one right away!

Hi~



I went back to the doctor today to get a re-check on the miscarriage and find out all my blood test results. The sonogram showed that everything is all clear and healed up nicely...Doctor said I am in top shape and healthy and we can try again for another baby whenever we are ready. My blood tests came back great too...EXCEPT for my progesterone levels...they were VERY low!! Doctor said I lost the baby from my progesterone still being too low to sustain a pregnancy! The 400mg I am on was just not enough this time...so he is increasing my Prometrium to 600 mg per day and I am to start it as soon as I know I am expecting again. I also have to continue taking a baby asprin per day thru the whole pregnancy.They will also be following me very closely- with blood draws 2 times per week to monitor my HCG and progesterone levels next time- also will have weekly sonograms until I am out of the first trimester. I am very thankful they are being so pro-active....the nurses in the office are cheering us on and both my midwives who delivered Madilynn are praying for us to have a sweet little baby soon...( Think BLUE!! lol) We are a bit nervous- but Tommy and I are trusting the Lord and really feel like we will have success soon!! Please keep us in your prayers- we really appreciate them~!! :-)

Kellina~ Wife & Christian SAHomeschooling Mama-to 8 GREAT children!

So, I have been holding it since 11pm last night (it's almost 2pm now) so that I can take a test when the mail gets here (according to the tracking info, its been delivered, but that just means it's getting dropped off soon, you know?) I know it's SUPER early... but on i saw some other people on countdowntopregnancy get positives... and well... I'm being hopeful, you know? Plus... I've been holding it a REALLY long time.

found me too, guess it was stupid to get excited about possible implantation bleeding Not sure what I will do about this darn luteal phase now. I was on progesterone this month, so if even that doesnt fix it I guess I will just have to wait for pure luck. Last time took 14 months for that luck to kick in Im so bummed. I thought I had at least another week of hoping and excitement. Even if it didnt turn out positive.

SoCaliMommy, I feel for you too

found me too. Just an hour ago, after I got a faint faint faint BFP on an IC this morning. I should have known it was too good to be true, since I got a BFN on an FRER. Ugh, my LP was 9 days. How gross. I feel like I just stopped bleeding, and now again....I'm going to go drink a liter of wine and order a dumptruck full of maca.

MOVE ME TO WAITING TO O

Lots of big to everyone who AF just found. I'm so sorry! Splurge, treat yourselves and take gentle care, ladies.

Welcome to the new folks!

MamaFern and Samanthavv!

Glad things are looking good for being ready to try again, Kingsdaughter!

Yea for O, babymango! How exciting. GL for the TWW.

I agree-I think DS is pretty hungry by that time, too. A big pre-bed snack does seem to help.

I found nursing to get rather unpleasant around ovulation. Do you feel your nipples getting sore at all? Before my first pp AF that was the biggest sign of them all...it took a few weeks for me to O (I used OPKS) but I was totally convinced I had thrush.
It's funny, I think I am about to or just did O from every other sign, but my nipples aren't sore this month. Every other month they have been, so I don't know if I'm not really about to O, or if the change is because I am nursing less?

SoCaliMommy~ Malibu and Diet Coke is my drink of choice....enjoy

Finnegansmom~ but I'm hoping this is your recovery cycle and next month is THE one!

Logan~

AFM, I wish AF would find me! Still dragging along on CD 96 (I think) I'm taking Provera now (on day 5) and we'll see. If it helps I should expect AF in a couple of weeks.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I've been reading however the group moves pretty fast so it's hard for me as a newbie to keep up with personals. But fast moving is awesome! More for me to read and feel not so alone in this place in my life.

Good luck this cycle to all that AF found.

I'm down right confused. I have never (well, maybe once long ago) before in my life felt so much like I was going to ovulate as I did a few days ago. Positive OPKs, EWCF, the works...Only thing - no temp shift. My temps are pretty low in the upper 96's. Anyway, so I was fine to assume ovulation simply didn't happen until today when I found that I had some spotting on what would have been 3 dpo. I have had not even the tiniest amount of bleeding in nearly a year up until today. This is all very frustrating. Even my tcoyf software gave me the egg on the day I was expecting to ovulate per my symptoms. Ugh. Cruel I tell you!

edited to correct grammar...

ahhh to be able to think well enough to create a clever signature.sleeping.gif someday i will have enough sleep to accomplish this task...

Sorry I've been kind of quiet around here lately...ds has been pretty sick and is finally on the mend. He had a throwing up stomach virus AND bronchitis AND a double ear infection! No wonder he's been so miserable...only took four dr visits and a hospital visit to figure it all out! sheesh...

As for the ttc stuff I am on 10dpo and have peed on six sticks in the last few days all still BFN but i'm still pretty hopeful. I certainly FEEL pregnant but hopefully i'm not reading too much into it. Lots of whitish creamyish discharge today which is something that doesn't usually happen before AF for me so fingers are STILL crossed!

me, dh and 2 boys = our family (oh and a cat...who is also a male...lol)

Has anyone on this thread successfully increase their LP without completely weaning? I don't think my son nurses enough to affect LP at this point... Just wondering what others are doing. I've had issues since last summer with LP and not ovulating.
I'm taking B6 and Maca but I'm getting impatient.

Sorry Socal, Finnegan and Logan. s

DH and I were finally able to BD last night. I think I am O'ing today, according to my monitor. Hopefully BDing will work tonight too.

Finnegan, I have an LP of 12 days now. It lengthened after I day-weaned DS. I am hoping to increase it a bit by taking Maca and B6.

Mom to DS 12/07 and DD 11/13, plus a bunch of chickens, dogs, and cats.

Holly:
sorry that your little guy is sick..

TXmom2: sending AF your way


>>
my littlest one has been sick as well, and she is notsohappy about it..she spent most of yesterday evening yelling at me till i actually put her in the bedroom with the door closed because i was really starting to feel like i was going to freak out..she actually did calm downafter that and some rescue remedy but i felt pretty badly. usually she will calm down when i hold her and she just kept screaming..the thing is for the 20 minutes before i was making dinner, so trying to keep her happy (unsuccessfully) while getting that done. as it was we ate at 7:30 that and her not sleeping for 3 nights..though she did last night mostly, but i had insane insomnia and woke at 4am and couldnt fall back alseep.. so i feel like i have a massive hangover now.. weeee.

its going to be a good day though! the sun is shining!!

SoCali - I'm trying to get it uploaded but for some reason it's not working. I've emailed tcoyf tech support. Until then...I've uploaded it to Photobucket. Here's the link: My Weird Chart
There isn't much there as far as temps go. I'm spotting again today, more so than yesterday. I'm quite confused.

Ummm, I guess I spoke too soon going back to waiting to be ready...I took two tests today (after taking 5 days or so off from testing) and got two very dark BFPs!!!!

My mom is here visiting from China and it was so great to be able to share the news with her in person!

Fingers crossed that lots of you will be joining me with BFPs this month!

Mama to DD (10/8/08) and expecting someone new in November!
