Hi all! I introduced myself in the thread from last week, but I think I'm ready to actually join in, if y'all don't mind. :) My husband and I just started TTC last month, and none of my IRL friends are trying, so I'm looking forward to getting to know you ladies! 

You can add me to the Waiting to O section, pelase. :)

Hi ladies! Hope everyone had a great weekend.

sleepingbeauty - SO glad your AF arrived and you got stop the stressing!

Welcome to the new ladies!

Please move me to Waiting to O. AF arrived on Saturday. Oh, along with a wicked case of mastitis, so now I'm on antiobiotics for the next 10 days. BLAH. What a lousy weekend! But the weather was beautiful, so I promise not to complain too much. Now I just need the time to get my 3 acres of lawn mowed smile.gif

Question for you ladies: Does anyone know if it's safe to take soy isoflavones while nursing? I took them days 3-7 the cycle I got pregnant and would like to try that again this month, but not sure if I should be taking them while nursing. I'm going to do some online research but figured asking here might turn up the answer!

Nevermind - quickly found multiple recommendations not to take soy isos while nursing. Easy answer smile.gif There's even examples of soy isos given to animal mothers causing tumor growth in their offspring! ACK.

Hi, everyone.

 

Well, I got my BFP a week and a half ago. I was supposed to see the doc on the 16th, but I had to go in today as I had some brown blood. She said it was a threatened miscarriage, but it's getting pink now and I think I'm starting to feel cramps. I had betas done and will have more done on Thurs, but I'm not feeling hopeful. I took another HTP this past Saturday and it was about half as faint as the control line. I know it doesn't measure HCG, but I was at 21 DPO and it really should have been dark.

 

So, 4w4d. It was my second cycle trying. I'm going to find some solace in the fact that, at 36 years old, I can ovulate and, at 38 years old, my husband's sperm can swim.

 

I also definitely now know that I want to be a mom (I wasn't 100% sure before) and hope the next time works out for us.

 

I hope everyone else is doing well.

 

I don't know where I go now - waiting to be ready? Waiting to O? Does anyone know how long I'll have to wait to try again?

magoodoggy...   I think you can try again as soon as you feel ready.  A doctor told me that there is no reason to wait to try again after early miscarriages, as he said that the body doesn't have very much to heal/bounce back from. I've also read quite a bit online that says women are more fertile the three months following a miscarriage, so if you're ready emotionally, you should try right away.


43 w/Emphysema - TTC from 2005 - 2013. 2 miscarriages in 2008. Good things do not come to those who wait.

I agree with this, it was never suggested that I wait after an early miscarriage, it was more about being ready emotionally and that's up to you.

 

I think I can be moved to waiting to know.  I think I'm O'ing as we speak :) and we DTD on the 7th and again today ... the timing doesn't get any better.  Oh and I have had LOTS of EWCM.

Thanks for the new thread, Mayday!
Good luck to you, Tenk! I hope this is the cycle for you!

I'm copying my last post from the last thread here. Still not sure if I've O'd at all. I'd really appreciate it if someone could glance at my chart and give me some opinions.

Question for you temp'ing experts:
This is my first month charting temps, and I'm feeling discouraged and worried that I haven't O'd yet (I'm on cd20, and my cycle is 32 days, so I'm cutting it close if I need a 12 day LP, right?)
Do the cross hairs to show ovulation show up right away, or at the end of the month?
I had what I thought was creamy cm yesterday, but today it's more stringy and almost ewcmish, what's going on?? Is today my O day? (if so, I kinda wish we'd stayed in niagara falls an extra night!! lol)

Also, I started taking 50mg of B6 at the beginning of this cycle, but I've forgotten to take it on a number of occasions. Have I messed up my cycle somehow?
Can anybody look at my chart and give me some opinions?
Thanks!

Just me and DS.

Hi!tiphat.gif I'm like as new as they come, but could I jump in on this? I'm so excited to join a community of other ladies I can share this journey with. I feel so alone at times, with a sil who's expecting her second and a mother and other sil who were blessed with babies without even trying. I am waiting to O...whistling.gif Thanks. And, I hope to get to know all of you.

magoodoggy - Hoping your BFP sticks and that if it doesn't you get another soon. I had two early m/c during the year before my daughter was conceived. My period came back quickly and normally. If I hadn't tested with the 2nd m/c I would never have known I was pregnant at all. Would've just seemed like a late period. I never kept track of my periods at that time. My doctor also didn't mention waiting after a 'chemical pregnancy'. After the 1st one though, which was probably further along, I took misoprostol and my doctor advised a month of birth control pills to get everything back to normal. But it would have been farther along than you are now, for sure. Probably around 7 weeks or so..although I never really knew.

 

StudyingStones - I'd look at your chart, but I'm clueless! Hope someone more knowledgeable than me has some insight.

 

Can you please move me to Waiting to Know? I don't temp and my OPKs were all negative, so I'm not sure when/if I O'd. I'm thinking it may have been around July 4th on CD 14 because I had a high, open cervix around then. But that's purely guessing. We've DTD at least every other night since around CD6, so maybe I'll get lucky. But I don't have a feeling this will be the month. Last month I had my hopes high, and I was pretty disappointed. If AF doesn't arrivesmile.gif, I'll test on July 19.

StudyingStones - I'd say you O'ed on CD 18. Fertility friend doesn't put crosshairs up until you've had 3 consecutive days of higher temps. I'm surprised it hasn't put them up for you yet. What calculation method is your FF set to? Double check that it's set to Advanced. Though, it might not have given you crosshairs yet because you have a lot of temps that aren't taken at the same time (lots of open circles instead of solid circles for the time the temperature was taken).

Also, you'd be just fine with a 10 day LP - 12 is better, but 10 is considered long enough to sustain a pregnancy. And if you end up with a 32 day long cycle this month, you'd have a 14 day LP, which is fantastic smile.gif Though hopefully you have no AF and a BFP instead!!

Thank you SO much for responding, LivingSky!

 

I think I went into panic mode this morning thinking that I hadn't ovulated, and that I wouldn't ovulate now because I'm already on CD 22, and spent a great deal of time researching ways to jumpstart ovulation (Vitex, Iso...somethings, and Clomid).  This process is already confusing enough without having to think about all of those things, so I am relieved to see that you think I O'd on CD18 (that's kinda what I was thinking before my panic attack this morning).   To think with DS I missed two BCPs and became pregnant - what were the chances of that????  Craziness. 

 

I wonder if my temps aren't as high as I expected them to be post-O (most people's charts have a great big jump post-O, and mine is more of a slow incline), but I think that may be due to all the crazy dreams and crappy sleep I've been getting lately.  I've spent the last few nights dreaming of little else than BFPs, HPTs, DPOs, faint lines, dark lines, and last night I dreamt I didn't O at all and this cycle was totally shot - so it's been kinda stressful, and I definitely haven't been sleeping well. 

 

I started this month off with such positivity and truly, intuitively, believing that this would be THE month, and now I'm so full of doubt and negativity, I've probably jinxed myself.  Sigh.  There's nothing to do now but wait and see, and try to regain some of my positivity. 

 

I guess I can be moved to Waiting to Know, please?  Here's hoping that I don't see AF for at least another year!!!

 

Thanks again for looking LIving Sky, the support I feel from these boards is so important to me right now!!!


Just me and DS.

Little poppy seed is not sticking. Boo.

 

Thanks for the advice, everyone. It's comforting to hear many women can be quite fertile after a miscarriage (I hadn't heard that) and that you can try again right away if it's an early one.

 

Although sad, I'm emotionally okay to try again. Does anyone know if this counts as a period or do I have to wait a month? Will I ovulate before my next period?

 

Also, does anyone know the statistics of women going on to have successful pregnancies after a miscarriage? I'm 36 if that matters.

magoodoggy - So sorry that this wasnt a stick bean for you greensad.gif I don't know the exact statistics, but it definitely seems like a LOT of women on here get pregnant the first or second cycle after a m/c. I know the cycle before I got pregnant I had a very long, wierd LP and I still suspect that I actually was pregnant and lost it - very next cycle, BFP.

And typically, I believe a m/c counts as a period, since the uterus sheds its lining. You should ovulate before your next AF.

Hi everyone!

I've been reading and reading the TTC posts for months now and I'm finally poking my toe in the water. :)

 

I'm 30 and my husband is 35. We've been married for a little over a year and trying since January for our first kiddo. I had a really weird cycle/maybe miscarriage that kind of put us over the edge to really start TTC seriously. It's been frustrating as I'm sure everyone here knows. My brother and his wife are pregnant and keep sending out info about the baby, they just found out the sex today. I'm so excited for my brother but I'm soooooo jealous of his wife. It doesn't help that she's forbidden him to give us (his very small and close family) any unauthorized information. I'm basically walking on egg shells while talking to him, which is a huge difference from how we've talked my whole life. It feels like we're shut out and I can't talk about it to get excited with her too.

 

I'm right now waiting to O. I think it'll happen sometime this week. I've found temping way too stressful but I am doing Fertile Focus (ferning), OPK strips and keeping track of CM. This is my first cycle with the ferning method and consistently using the OPK strips.

Magoodoggy...   I counted my miscarriage day as day 1 of AF, I may have ovulated a little later than usual, but I did ovulate before my first real period.


43 w/Emphysema - TTC from 2005 - 2013. 2 miscarriages in 2008. Good things do not come to those who wait.

Well, I finally got my big temp spike this morning.. 5 days after I think I O'd.  (temps have been steadily creeping up since then, but this morning was a big jump).

 

Is anybody else here a "slow riser" when it comes to post-O temps?  Or did I O later than I think I did?

 

Or maybe I can attribute it to the lack of quality sleep the last 3 nights.. I've been waking up at 3:30 am and having only restless, half waking sleep until I get up in the morning (I would think this would make the temp higher??). 

 

Any thoughts?

 

Good luck to you Quinalla, I hope this is the month for you!!


Just me and DS.

I know that my temps were higher when I had a poor night's sleep. FF usually put one of those open circles on my chart on those days when I checked sleep deprived. On the other hands... I had a lot of those sleepless nights last month when I got my bfp. Just sayin'  winky.gif

StudyingStones: I'm a slow rise/jagged temp rise kind of gal most of the time. It tends to throw FF for a loop smile.gif Certainly it could be at least partly attributed to your sleeplessness, or it may just be the way your temp rises. All of your fertility signs point to the earlier O date - the temp is part of the picture, but you need to take your CM etc into account as well.
