Sila - I'm sending some ovulation vibes your way! goodvibes.gif

 

BubbleMa - So sorry AF found you. Hugs to you. hug2.gif

 

AFM - Still no sign of O for me, my OPKs are stark white negative. My normal O date is still 2-3 days away so no surprise there. I'm actually hoping I O 1 day later than usual (on CD 18 instead of CD 17), which would be next Tuesday. If I do, my due date will be exactly February 14th joy.gif! That date is special not only because its Valentine's day, but because its also my Dad's birthday and I know he will be crazy happy to have his first grandchild ever (my dad is way more supportive than my mom about the whole TTC thing). I have already planned out in my head how I would announce to him what his birthday present is going to be if I get my BFP this month :)

SilaMaria...   I hope you lay an imediately fertilized egg! LOL

 

Sourire...   Awww! That sounds really sweet! Just remember giving birth on the actual due date is not a certainty.

Just a quick update - we found a workaround for my insurance issue! But, still no Clomid this cycle because my baseline u/s on cd4 already showed a dominant follicle. That's fine by me, I actually am happy to try a natural cycle this month and feel good knowing what the plan is for next month if nothing happens.

 

Fingers crossed for everyone! Have a fun weekend, guys!


Me + DH + DS ('07) + after a long and bumpy road, thrilled that our twin boys are finally here (DS2 & DS3, '12)

CD2 Now...Please move me to Waiting to O. Thanks!

 

hug2.gif Gemmine, BubbleMa and Hokie. Mean AF..

 

Bremen I totally feel you. I waited 6 months before I was able to work and I lost my mind with boredom! I suggest getting out and exploring while you have the opportunity and the free time! Hopefully the visa comes through soon, though. Thinking of you..

 

BubbleMa No, I haven't really considered getting a second opinion. As it is, I pretty much have two opinions. My dr gave me the PCOS diagnosis, and mentioned the possibility of endometriosis but she didn't think it was likely. The specialist I am seeing comes highly recommended in my area. She is the most qualified OB/GYN / Fertility Speciailist on the coast where I live, the head of a fertility clinic, and has worked in the industry for 30 years. I'm also very happy with her. She also believes PCOS is likely, but is having me do a few more blood tests to make sure. Pending the endo diagnosis, she isn't pressuring me at all into the surgery - just being upfront about that being her likely recommendation. 

 

Good news Gozal, how exciting to have a dominant follicle naturally!

 

Good luck Sila!!

Congrats to MommyM and WritingLove!!! I'm so happy for you both!

 

I've missed a lot in the past two weeks, but I just took a time out. I don't know how much I'll be on still, but wanted to see how everyone is doing. I still have no news. No AF, but yesterday I started my second round of spotting. I have the EXACT same symptoms as the last round of spotting, so that is weird because I've never had these symptoms before when AF is getting near. But, last time, the spotting lasted three days and then nothing at all. Today is day two of spotting, so we will see what happens.

 

I'm just ready for a new cycle, this CD58 stuff is just a bunch of crap. If I'm not going to O or get pregnant, then I'd rather just have a freaking period. I'll check back in with you guys soon!

 

Good luck to everyone!!dust.gif

Shelley - maybe you are just having one of those random anovulatory cycles that some people get every one in a while. Hopefully your new cycle starts soon and everything is back to normal at that point!

 

AFM - It's a long weekend! Yay! My project this weekend is to create an album with all our wedding photos and stuff. I've been putting it off for so long, and now I have a 3 day weekend and DH is working so its the perfect time for this kind of project!

Hi everyone. I have loved reading all of your stories, tips, and advice. We just started trying to have #2 for me, #1 for dh. My hormones have been a mess the past couple of years, so I've got no idea what kind of adventure we're in for. I'm going to see if I can find a thermometer tonight so I can chart. My daughter (who is 5) was conceived cd7 (last day of AF), and I was completely in shock because I didn't even know that was possible.

 

After she was born, I had a mirena inserted. When my period returned 8 months later, I started having periods every 2 weeks (one may have been ovulation bleeding, but the amount and length was about the same) . I didn't have health insurance at the time, so I just dealt with it for a couple of years until I could get my mirena removed. I found out it had gone through my uterine wall, and I had to have it surgically removed from my abdomen. Once I got back on the pill after that things regulated. I was abstinent during the entire time I had my mirena, and I really don't know what kind of effect the hormones had, or how much made it into my system.

 

This is my first cycle non-pill cycle. My AF lasted 7 days, and I'm day 9 right now. I'm really curious to find out when I ovulate because of my daughter's conception. This morning my CM was EW, so it's possible I ovulate early I guess.

 

I would love to be added to the list :) Waiting for O


Happily married to my soul mate, and a mommy of two girls + another baby due in June!

Hi all, I hopped over to this thread, from the Nursing Mamas one, because I was looking for some bfps to encourage me to get through this cycle (congrats to the mamas-to-be!)... time is going sooooooo slooooooooow.  I'm only CD14, waiting to O, and I'm thinking it will be a few days yet--seems to be my new normal since having my DS, along with short luteal phases!  :(  If things are going this slow, I can't imagine what the 2ww will be like. 

 

Sourire, how are you doing now with the clomid side effects?

 

Also, can anybody tell me is a few short words how to do a signature?  I'm so exhausted from not getting enough consecutive hours of sleep because of my DS wanting to marathon nurse for the second half of the night, I can't begin to figure out where to start looking for instructions!

Welcome.gif to Dandy Lion and TenzinsMama!

 

Dandy Lion - What happened to you with the Mirena sounds super frightening! Remind me never to get one of those! What are you doing to track your ovulation? Are you charting?

 

TenzinsMama - It sounds like we are cycle buddies. I am on CD15, I will probably O in a few days from now, and I have a short LP :)  Thanks for asking about the side effects... I don't seem to be having any at all at this point (its now been 6 days since I took the last pill).

 

To add a signature, click on "My Profile" in the menu at the very top of the page (on the purple bar). Once you are on your profile page, there should be a section where you can edit your signature... you just have to scroll down a bit to get to it.

Just thought i'd stop by and check on everyone.  I've been in hiding during my first half of my cycle!! I'm on cd8 right now and I went ahead and started testing yesterday with opks.  I really hope that i catch my eggie this month!!! I would be due around my 28th birthday so it would be nice to share a birth month with my child!!!  OH and BTW vivica reminded me by saying pisces baby since i'm a pisces  i TOTALLY thought it crazy that me and my twin brother we concieved under Gemini lol. Maybe i'm crazy for putting that together..... 

 

 

vivica: Sending out lots of baby vibes from a Pisces baby myself!!! :)  Maybe it will do good for you!!!

 

I hope everyone has a great day!  At least a better day than me!!! I've been up since 5am Saturday morning because i had to be at work at 0630am yesterday morning and i got off work at 1230pm. then i got called BACK at 730pm last night and was told i had to be back at work at 1100pm.  SO i've been back at work since 11pm last night and i don't get  off work until 11am!!! I'm SUCH a tired woman right now!!! And i know that going this long without sleep is going to mess with my cycle...it always does when i go that long without sleep.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm still getting used to the board, and my last post got sucked up for moderation before I was finished.

 

Tantylynn-It's good to see another Utah gal! How did you end up in Australia?

Thanks for the warm welcome, everybody!

 

Sourire, I think we are pretty much cycle buddies at this point!  I'm CD15 today, and I've been testing with OPKs since CD10 in the hopes that I O early and my LP is longer this time.  But so far, nothing... This month I'm using Clear Blue in addition to the internet cheapies as back up-- just want to reassure myself that the cheapies are just as good!  (Then I'll have to debate whether I order cheapie pregnancy tests... part of me thinks I shouldn't, because then I will be tempted to test often and it will probably drive me crazy!  I'm already going crazy with the OPKs, just waiting and waiting for my surge...)

 

Vivaca2, sorry that AF showed up.  That sucks!

 

WildDoula, good luck!

UGH. I guess the bleeding I was having must have been a very light first AF after the m/c.

I took a test this morning and it was a BFN. irked.gif

 

So I guess I am now waiting to O.
