Just wanted to come back and share my current chart.  Sorry I'm just now getting back.  I have been taking the supplements I mentioned every day, plus spirulina and chlorella.  For my last cycle, I did try the NPC but it made my face break out.  I think the supplements were enough on their own, and I pushed it.  This month, I stuck with the prenatals, B-6, and algae. It seems like my temp after ovulation creeped up slower than it "should" but I'm happy with this cycle so far.

 

Wish me luck!

I dunno, Rebecca... that chart looks pretty good to me!! The cycle I got pregnant was a little different for me temp wise in that it slowlyyyyyyyyyy crept up (see here: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/ttc/index.php?d=2011-12-24 hopefully that link works for my December chart) but I kinda just had a feeling I was preggo cause it was definitely different than normal for me!

 

Maybe Jaimee can weigh in on the supplements. I've only used the B6 and B12 (and still do!), but I don't know anything about spirulina, chlorella or algae... and when I was throwing around the idea of NPC, I ended up getting pregnant then anyway. Figures.

Thanks for your reply!  I started feeling different yesterday, and that's actually what reminded me to come post again.  Then my temp was up this morning...it's never 98.8!  I'm trying to be cautious, but I can't wait to see what it does and whether AF comes!  I hope this is our month!

 

Spirulina and chlorella are super foods, both dietary algaes.  Chlorella can have a detox effect, and I have read that it's not necessarily a good idea to start taking after you are pregnant.  But it's okay to take if you have already been taking it.  I take half the recommended dosages from the bottles, mainly to supplement my iron and also to take advantage of the other benefits of it.  Here's some information on them.  http://www.antioxidants-for-health-and-longevity.com/chlorella-and-spirulina.html

 

Oh, and I wasn't able to view your chart, but I'd love to!  When you're looking at your chart, there should be a clickable box about halfway down the page that says "share".  On my screen, there is a button that says "print" right above it.  Just click "share" then you can cut and paste your chart's unique web page from any of those boxes that come up.  You'll have to delete all the extra code that shows up.  Maybe looking at my link will help you figure it out?

 

Thanks so much!

Oh, and on my chart, you'll see I had high temps that slowly dropped during my AF.  I think that was all that extra progesterone leaving my system.

Mannn. I was just trying to get December's chart to come up for you so you didn't have to scroll back. Here is the link for my regular chart:

http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/35f26d

 

I've heard of all those goodies you're taking, I'm just not familiar with them for myself. My friend lovessssss her algae. I watch her drink that every morning at work. Haha. Your temp still looks high today which is great! I have a good feeling for you this month... I went to visit my cousin who just had her 2nd little girl yesterday. When I saw that little tiny girl, I thought "Oh my GOD, that's going to be me" Hahahaha... like I forgot there is a REAL baby in my belly. Hah! Good thing I have about 4 months left to prepare my brain. I think sometimes I get so wrapped up in the excitement and happiness that I forget a real baby is coming out! Oooofa! Sheepish.gif

Thanks! But what I noted from the chart I got preggo with is my temps were definitely different than the months before. It was a slow steady staircase climb in temp, then it just stayed up at 98.4. My "normal" high temp after ovulation was 98.2 So even before I took the pregnancy test, I had a pretty good feeling I was pregnant. Just food for thought with your chart!

I POAS today (I KNOW, it's early!) and I thought I saw a faint shadow of a positive.  It was a dollar store test, which I have used tons of before.  I have never seen anything AT ALL on them before unless I was pregnant.  Even so, I thought it was my imagination, so I tossed it.  Tonight, out of curiosity, I fished it out of the trash and looked at it.  It is dry, of course, but it is definitely there!  And it's not an vap line, it is purple, like the control line!  I'm to stay cautious, because it is still early... plus I had a stressful day and felt weepy... just hoping that if something is going on in there, it will stick this time!  :)

Thank you!!!  I'm hoping this is really it - trying to stay positive (pun intended) but not too optimistic.

I'm still stalking your chart. Your temp still looks high, so it's looking pretty positive to me! I think today is 14DPO for you, do you normally get your period today?

Yes, I ALWAYS have 14-day luteal phases.  I had AF-like cramps off and on all day starting at about 10 am, but no AF.  Getting a little nervous.  I cramped a little with my first but I don't remember it lasting all day.  I know it is totally normal to cramp on the day Af is due, though.  I'll feel a lot better after the 8 -9 week mark!

I'm getting a little nervous after the cramping yesterday.  This is a test I took this morning at 15 dpo.  It is still sooooo light.  Shouldn't it be a lot darker now?  (This is the test after 3 minutes, but the one I posted at 11 dpo sat overnight before I took a pic of it.)  My temps are still high overall, but it seems like they are stair-stepping downward. :(  What do you guys think?  Also, I haven't noticed any discharge since right after ovulation, and this morning I have wet/creamy stuff... 

 

Should I get some more tests (this was my last) and see if it gets darker?  I'm going to call the dr office and see if I can get my levels tested today and tomorrow.

I have always been in the mindset that a positive is a positive, but you know you're body best! Are you on the thread 2WW? Here's a link if you're not. It's all ladies TTC and in the 2WW! http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1310031/2ww-support/1260#post_16958467

 

I know for me, after I conceived this time I had a lot of creamy CM. Not my normal at all, so I knew I was doing okay. My temps generally stayed around the same after my BFP but around 22 DPO, they definitely started jumping around. Just food for thought.

Thanks!  That helps!  I just posted on the 2WW thread.  The end of my 2 weeks creeped up on me before I even thought about posting there, lol.  I'm getting quantitative hcg drawn tomorrow and again Friday.

She called!  It is 296 at 16 dpo.  Pretty good, right???  She said I can retest in 3-7 days, so I guess next week.  Shooting for Tuesday on my lunch break.  Feeling GOOD about this!!!! :)  I am so very glad I found this thread!  I believe the extra B vitamins are helping!

Okay, the 18 dpo numbers are in!  :)  

 

hcg - 707

prog - 19.1

 

She said those are both good!  I am so relieved.  I hope this pregnancy continues on this path.  It looks like my issue was low progesterone, and it has been fixed!!!  And even if that wasn't the reason for my miscarriage, I'm glad it is not an issue this time. SOOOO happy!

Oh yeah, they're definitely good! They just look for the #'s to about double every two days. Yipeeeee!!! Keep taking those B's! joy.gif

I truly believe my problem was progesterone with my miscarriage too, but just when I was starting blood tests to prove it to them, IIIIII got preggo. Lol. And I know it's case of those vitamins!!

I wanted to come back and update, because I'm just so very excited!  We found out on Thursday (which happened to be the due date of the one that I miscarried) that we are having a GIRL!!!!!  I thought it was a boy the whole time, and I am beside myself with joy!  I really do think that the B vitamins and ceasing breastfeeding has helped this one stick!  Woohoo!!!!!!

 

I see that you are very close to your due date.  I pray that everything goes well for baby and mama through labor, delivery, and beyond.  Good luck to you!!!
