Aw sorry about the BFN, Gator-mom.  I'm glad you have high spirits about it though!  I hope you get that BFP in about a month!  smile.gif

 

Hi pregnova!  Sounds like our stories are similar.  My DS is also a December 2008 baby and my husband also took a long time to be ready to try for #2!  I've been wanting to TTC #2 since January, but now he's finally saying we can start TTC next cycle.  I didn't want to be too pushy with him, but it's hard when I want another baby soooo much!  Good luck to you!

 

BeachLove, I hope that decreasing the nursing with your DD hasn't been too tough.  And I hope that it helps get your cycles back on track!

Yes I know, you started quite the thread, Ava'sMama!  I hope you get your BFP in about 5 days or so!  Sending you lots of baby dust.

love the thread! Hope there's a BFP in this cycle!

 

Traci447, sounds like we DO have a lot in common. I'm afraid it's been VERY hard for me not to be pushy, but we're finally in this together! Yay!

Gator-mom - Sorry about your BFN. Sounds like you had an awesome 30th!! Lots of babydust for this next cycle!

Traci447 - thanks for asking!

I'm still in a bit of a state of shock.... I got a BFP! It's not quite as dark as I remember with my DS, but it showed up right away. Here's to hoping it's sticky!!! smile.gif

YAY!  PurelyMama!  Such great news! 

 

I am a little crampy, kind of like AF is coming, but I am on 10 DPO, so maybe implantation?  Guess I won't know until next week!

[url=http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2ffda5]My Ovulation Chart[/url]

 

 

I am hoping I shared my chart the right way, but I am fairly hopeful this cycle. This is my second cycle using 50 mg of clomid days 3-7. During my first cycle af came at what would have been CD26. The next cycle ended unexpectedly at CD 17, which puts me to the third month since being prescribed the clomid. I have one more cycle worth of clomid and if we don't get our BFP we will be testing my progesterone to see if I need to up the clomid. We also will be doing a SA  around the same time. I think my chart looks great my temp has stayed up after ovulation. What do you think?

 

Congrats to the new expectant mommies!

Lillylady - Your link  didn't work.  When you are viewing your chart underneath there is a link that says "Share" click that and then copy and paste the link for message boards

Congratulations, purelymama!

 

Thanks for asking, traci447, the "partial-weaning" is going really well. DD is barely even asking for milk during the day, and she doesn't seem like she's been affected for the worse in any way. She does try to "milk it" (bad pun, I know!) at the end of naptime, though. I lay down with her at naptime and either sleep or read and she basically lays on me, latched on but only suckling here and there, while she sleeps. But lately when she wakes up she's been lazy about getting up!

 

I went to the health food store today and got some vitex capsules and red raspberry leaf tea. And I got an adjustment at the chiropractor this afternoon. So hopefully, all will come together for me and soon!!

So glad that partial weaning is going well, BeachLove!  I hope the Vitex and Red Raspberry Leaf help your cycles as well!

 

LillyLady05, your chart is looking good!  Your link doesn't work, but I figured it out by taking off the last portion of the web address... so your correct link would be http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2ffda5 

 

Ava'sMama, I'm hoping you get good news as well!

Thanks everybody!! Hopefully I'm just the first of many for this thread. I thought for sure it would take a little longer, and I was ready for a longer amount of time to just enjoy trying hahaha smile.gif

Sorry for the confusion- the link I posted was LillyLady's chart because her link didn't work.  So cross your fingers for her not me!!!  thumb.gif  No chance of pregnancy for me this cycle because there was no BDing going on greensad.gif  (some chickening out on DH's part and also we wanted to make sure my new insurance plan with maternity coverage was all good to go).  I'm only 4 dpo so just waiting patiently for AF to arrive so I can get this TTC journey started already.  I'm just hoping that my LP is at least 11 days... I'm taking extra vitamin B6 to hopefully help with this!

 

PurelyMama- I know what you mean about wanting to "enjoy trying"!  But that's so great that it happened so quickly for you!  I hope I can have the same good luck next cycle.... I would love to have a summer baby this time with my first child being a winter baby (and having a birthday right smack between Christmas and New Years at that!).  But we'll see!

Thanks for helping me figure it out! I have never shared my chart anywhere before so I had no clue. Is anyone else nearing the end of the TWW and dying to test? I know I am, but I am being a chicken because I don't want to see a BFN.

I should be nearing the time for AF to arrive.  I think something like the end of this coming week? BUT, Idk, I'm pretty sure we missed our window as DP didn't commit to ttc until I already felt as though I'd ovulated...so...we'll see. On one interesting note, if we DID somehow manage it this cycle, we'd probably have a high chance at another boy...since male sperm swim faster. lol

 

Mostly, I'm waiting for AF to arrive so that we can time it better the next cycle!

I just tested at the hospital with a urine test ....which was negative.I am still holding out hope that a BFP is still in my future as I am only CD 26. I am having pain in my lower belly/uterus area. The doctor prescribed laxatives and pain medicine. They think since I didn't have a BM yesterday I am constipated. At this point they said my uterus seemed irritated but they don't know why. I was instructed to take the laxatives and see if that makes a difference and to go see my OB/GYN on Tuesday if I still have this pain. They didn't want to do an ultrasound to check for cysts because my vitals are fine. I don't have a fever and have no blood in my urine and no vaginal discharge that could indicate infection.

Haha, sorry I got confused so easily! I hope that this next cycle is a lucky one for you. I think a summer baby would be awesome! It's what I had hoped for, but I love spring babies too! ( that's what my first is smile.gif )

Congrats Lauren39421!!!

Anybody else tested yet?

Hi everyone! I am cd28 here. I was supposed to get af today according to last cycle. I have had mild cramps since Friday so we will see. I was going to test tomorrow but I may wait until Thursday. What do you think?

Thank you, PurelyMama. smile.gif

 

Ava'sMama, do what you feel comfortable with as far as the testing goes!  I personally like to wait a couple days after AF is due, but I am also anxious to hear your results so maybe you should test sooner! winky.gif  Hope to hear that you get a BFP!

 

LillyLady, and hope you get that BFP also.

Having some light spotting this morning, cramps are different than AF, but it may be all in my head.  Hoping AF stays away...

Flow has picked up, AF is here :(

 

Maybe I should have kept up with charting?  I really thought our timing was good this month! 

 

Good luck to everyone else this month!

So sorry about AF, Ava'sMama.  I would love to see all of us get BFPs this next cycle and all have June babies.  I am currently 8 dpo, no chance of pregnancy this time, but just hope my LP is nice and long so I can try next cycle.  My temp is staying up so far, and I have previously had only 8 days for my LP.

Hi! I'm very very new here. We are trying to conceive our second baby and I'm in that excited and nervous phase where I can't think about anything else. So I thought I might find some like-minded people here. :)

 

My first little one is a May 2010 baby, so we're aiming for about 2 years apart. We weaned in June and my cycle just came back in mid August. I'm charting and for the first time every got the ovulation crosshairs on FF! Fun!! We timed things relatively well, though we did miss the actual day of ovulation. Oops! So now it's just the wait.
