It is sad, but it helps to be moving forward right away.  The friends I'm carrying for are ready to try again right away.  (The egg retrieval is so hard on the body, but she'll have some time to recover and doesn't mind that she'll be at the worst of it over Thanksgiving.)  We've already got our schedule rebooted and are scheduled to transfer again at the end of November.  (Takes an extra month to get us synched up again.) 

 

I think in a strange way, having it turn out this way instead of being negative right away is easier (on me at least).  We know it tried to stick and just wasn't strong enough to grow properly.  That knowledge is easier to process than just having no results on this cycle. 

 

We'll get there next time.  Now I'm just waiting for AF to realize that it's not growing and I stopped taking my meds.  Then we are working towards the goal again.

Sorry for you loss, RollerCoasterMama.

 

 

I got good news tonight...a BFP after 6 months TTC.  It's very faint at 10dpo, but it is there and even in the evening. I've been feeling pregnant for a couple of days.  Our bodies sure are amazing!


Mom to 5 amazing kids! (DS8, DS7, DD4, DD2 and DS0)

Sorry mirpmama, but I like your idea of enjoying drinks at Epcot. Look on the bright side, eh?

 

I'm trying to do the same. October is a busy month for me. I have three races (a 5k this weekend, a 10k next weekend which is a goal race of mine, and the SanFrancisco Nike Women's Half Marathon the following weekend, which I won an entry into. So we'll be road-tripping it up there before the race, probably in a rented RV) Also my birthday is Oct 27th, so I'm trying to console myself with the fact that I'll be able to celebrate with libations.

 

But, uh... I guess I'm still on the TWW because AF still isn't here. My longest cycle was 36 days long, which is tomorrow. So I'm going to give it a few more days and then I'm going to call my GYN to make an appointment. I only have one ovary, my right one was removed in HS, so I want to make sure that nothing is amiss. I've been having lots of dull cramping and lower backaches along with bloating with pressure in my pelvic area. I'm really hoping that I don't have any issues going on with the remaining ovary, I kinda need it!

Congratulations jr'smom!  Happy and healthy 9 months to you.  joy.gifjoy.gifjoy.gifjoy.gif

 

mirpmama- I'm sorry to hear AF arrived.  It's early in the process for you.  Hang in there.  grouphug.gif

 

kitteh - I hope you know what's going on soon.  And good luck on your races!  I live in the Bay Area, and the Nike Women's Marathon is a great event.

 

AFM- I have just entered the TWW myself as of yesterday.  I feel like the timing was very good, and I was very fertile so only time will tell.

Hi ladies!

May I join you? I am day 3 past O this cycle, and am going to do my damndest to keep myself form early testing this cycle.  ;) 

 

Been TTC #2 for 13 cycles now, and have scheduled IF testing stuff in the upcoming weeks. I hope I'm one of those people with an appointment to cancel because she gets a BFP! 

 

Congrats to all those with new BFPs and babydust to those trying!

Well, I think I'll jump in over here - it looks like a pretty fertile thread to hang out in. :)

 

I'm still feeling in limbo. I have yet to have a full cycle after a m/c, but I did ovulate and our timing was good this month. According to my midwife, I should be just as likely to conceive with this ovulation than any other time (if not more fertile! Although I'm wondering if that's just a myth that women are more fertile after a m/c?)

 

I want to be excited and in a normal 2ww - but I'm just nervous that my body will fail me. And, when I say good timing - I actually would have liked if we'd dtd one extra time before. We have about 36-48 hours between our last time and my ovulation. I know that's still okay, but I like to think we caught the egg the minute it was ready...silly, I know.

 

So - I'm only a few dpo right now. I'll probably test a week from today, because my last BFP was at 8dpo (without any squinting or pic tweaking at all!) and I have about 40 tests waiting. :)

Can you request a blood test so you'd at least know? 

 

Your OB or midwife should be happy to do it.  Or...I was able to get a super squinter line on a FRER test when my HCG was only 4.  Crazy sensitive.

Good luck SweetMama! Your timing sounds promising to me, fx.

I guess I might be back on the TWW soon. I got EWCM today so DH and I dtd. I guess my spotting on the 14th, 15th and 16th was a very timid AF? Here's hoping I O soon. OPIUM was negative today, but test line was darker than usual. Does that even matter, though? Maybe not, unless its a positive. Anyhow, just started temping recently and threw out my 1st 2 temps because I switched to vaginal temping (my oral temps were just so low. I tend to be a mouth breather at night) so hopefully when I DO ovulate again I will have enough data to confirm it. Feeling hopeful.

I think I'm just going to wait it out for right now. We are sort of in between midwives at the moment (haha) so I dont know how quickly I could get an appt and with DH gone I'd have to get a sitter (cause taking a 23 month old and 9 month old to that sort of appt just isn't happening. lol).... so... still no BFP as of yesterday. Today I had (TMI alert) some stringy pink cm. So perhaps AF shows up tomorrow or the next day. Perhaps it was a chemical and hcg was just never enough to show up on test (mine are sensitive to 25). I will probably never know. Unless this is the weirdest cycle ever and I ovulated wayyyyy late and this is implantation spotting (haha a girl can dream right?) then some sort of cycle should be starting up imminently. sigh.
