Thanks for the new thread! I've taken a couple more tests (well, actually a total of 6 nowlol.gif and some at different times throughout the day just for variety - I feel like I should be doing SOMETHING, ugh) and I am SURE I'm pregnantenergy.gif Could you please move me. Thanks so muchorngbiggrin.gif.

 

Question: I'm interviewing a midwife on Tuesday and wondering if anyone can suggest a list of things I should ask and/or go over with her? I should be at least 5 weeks by then and EDD 9/16, no insurance and no OB... She's a naturopath as well so I am really excited and hope we're a great fit.

Hey gals! Ive been away over the holidays and following our last miscarriage but it is great to be back and see so many BFPs (including my special friend Suzie!!)

While I was away I had an RPL panel done and discovered I've got the homozygous C677T MTHFR mutation. Glad to know there may be a reason for our losses. Doc recos Folgard, prenatal, plus baby aspirin once preg. I'm leaning towards taking L-methylfolate + B6 & B12 since it is more easily absorbed by us MTHFR mutants. If anyone has any experience with this I would love to hear! smile.gif

You can also move me to Waiting to Know. We didn't stop trying this month so who knows???

Married my best friend 05.09.10, welcomed our darling daughter on 10.01.13!

BFN this morning and still no AF. If I get another negative tomorrow I better see AF show up by the end of the day so I can just start over already! Ugh. Thinking about trying out Fertilitea or something similar. Reccommendations anyone?

Renaissance31, I LOVE the Fertilitea from Euphoric Herbals on Etsy. The shipping is so fast, and the tea smells and tastes amazing. She has a 2 teas for $10 sale, which is more than enough to get me through a cycle. Each pack of tea comes with a muslin bag for brewing too. :) I usually brew mine in quart jars and just drink 1/4 of the jar a day until I O.

I'm still waiting to o, so not much is going on here TTC why's.  I am still waiting for a student teaching spot too and that's what's taking up most of my thinking.  Well that and the fact that I have found myself on this spiritual journey trying to figure out what way is the way for me.  Pretty much I am going insane over here but at least it is keeping my mind off of TTC lol.

I'm two days from the end of the cycle, based on my temps, but I wont test until I'm late this time. I'm putting an electric heat pad on my belly because I'm constantly super crampy. Anyone know if that much heat is dangerous if I actually am pregnant?

It's not good (or at least not recommended) to let your core body temp go over 102F. Maybe just make sure your temp isn't rising too high? I'm honestly not sure about direct heat on the abdomen. Maybe do five minutes on and ten off and repeat? Just to keep from getting too warm?

I wouldn't say it is dangerous but probably not the best idea. Perhaps keep the pad away from the uterus area? I do know you're not supposed to go to the sauna or steam baths.

I have managed to get donors every day so far. Now I'm just waiting for my temp shift. I usually ovulate on cd14, and today is cd15. I'm guessing my temp rise will occur tomorrow (and hoping it will).

 

I found a new donor who says his sperm count is 120-140 million. I'm hoping that, combined with the Clomid, will finally be the key to my BFP.

Dekan, dont give up yet... I didn't have any symptoms of pregnancy until about a week or two after my period was due. Symptom spotting will drive you crazy. How was your timing? Are you temping? Have you ever been pregnant before?

Thanks for the support Anyalily! No I've never been pregnant before, that's probably why I'm driving myself crazy gathering all the info. I haven't been temping since I learned about it only have way thru my cycle so planning on doing it from the next cycle.

 

I have a question for the experts here: I know the tender breasts before AF (I'm getting a hang of the slang here! wink1.gif)  are due to lack of progesterone, also progesterone is needed during conception. Then how is tender breasts an early symptom of pregnancy? Unless I missed something...

 

Ok I lied, I have another question: Does anyone have the constant feeling like AF is going to arrive any minute a week before its actually due? I read somewhere....I could be wrong too...but this is due is lack of progesterone too. Is that right?

 

Thanks in advance!

Breasts are very sensitive to changes in lots of hormones, so they can be sore or different for any or no reason. Mine now leak milk before each period, for no reason.

Everyone! What do you know:
is it possible to start AF and not have a temp drop yet? Temp drop and AF definitely due for me today. I'm spotting a tiny bit pink but my temp is high as ever. I didn't spot in my other pregnancies (except when losing them later) so I'm sure this is AF but I'm stumped by my temp not dropping.

LittleKind...   My temp used to always drop after AF had already started. So, I never got that warning. (Lately it seems to drop before, or the same day.)

So sorry AF found you ladies. Fx for next month.

AFM CD 13 + OPK this morning, lots of O twinges. Expecting to O tonight or tomorrow. Almost to the TWW! Temping for the first time ever this month. I like having the additional information. So, so hoping for an October baby!

Hey ladies I have some good news and some bad news....

 

The good news is I FOUND A PLACE FOR STUDENT TEACHING!

 

The bad news is, it's in Texas and I leave next Thursday.  Dd and I don't want to leave Dh for 4 months and I don't want to put off getting pregnant for that long either :(  There is a bit of good news though that I am supposed to O this weekend which means we can still TTC and possibly catch an egg before I go.  I am praying big time that it happens.

My saga continues. My temp is up 2nd extra day. Mu spotting never became flow. I have to get ready for work and I'm out of pregnancy tests. How did I not know that? I need to poas ASAP and get to the doctor for progesterone and hcg levels if I'm pregnant. LOL I dunno what to do right now so I'm just telling you all!

LittleKind Ughh!! So frustrating. Can you run out at any point during the work day to get a test, hold your urine and test later at work? Or when you get home?

 

Anya So exciting!! Fx mama!!

 

John16n33 Congrats on the placement!! I remember you said Texas was a possibility, you have family there, right? Fx for lots of BD action this weekend and that you Catch. That. Egg!!!

 

 

I am looking for a little insight from you mamas with charting experience. I've cross posted this in the January TWW. As I said last month, just when I think I know what to expect of my body, the universe devises new ways to mix it up! So I am CD 14 today, + OPK yesterday morning and this morning. Still feeling O twinges and had some short, sharp pains this morning. I am thinking today is the day!! I have been Oing on CD 10 or 11 in recent months so this seems really positive, much better chance of a really nice, fat, mature egg thumb.gif Here is the very weird part: I am temping for the first time in my life. Love it, btw. I had a temp dip on Tuesday morning (I figured cool, Pre-O temp dip) and then a small rise yesterday and today (though both higher temps were about the same and about at my coverline, not yet above). If my temp increases tomorrow will that indicate O happened today? Or is it possibly it's not going to happen until tomorrow? I am still new to this. I don't usually get 2 + OPKs in a row either, usually an am and pm + on the same day and it is - by the following morning. And to add to my confusion, I always feel distinct O discomfort (it isn't really painful). I have some twinges for a day or so followed by short, sharp pains on the side I O from, alternating sides month to month like clockwork. Two months ago I KNOW it was the right side, last month left. Yesterday and today I feel twinges left and right (though more discernibly sharp on the left this morning). Anyone else had bilateral O pains before? Any thoughts/advice/wisdom would be very greatly appreciated!!

LittleKind...   It's probably too late for this suggestion... But next time, collect your FMU in a cup, and just find a way to take it with you. Then, you can buy a test on the way to work, or during your lunch hour, and still test your FMU. I'm pretty sure the test will still be accurate on urine that has been kept at room temperature.

Sparkle - I love charting, it's so cool to have that extra help/window into what's going on with your body. I had bilateral O pains last month... Then, I started having twinges and felt like 'something' was going on down there... Felt this way pretty much throughout my whole TWW. I don't want to describe it as cramps as it wasn't really painful, I just felt really bloated and kind of stretching or movement (which I know movement that early is virtually impossible to feel), weird. After I got my BFP, I still occasionally have these twinges, even some ovary discomfort (again not painful) and only lasts a few seconds. I don't remember having anything like this when I was pregnant last time but then I miscarried, so maybe these are good signs this time. I read about round ligament pulling (I think that's what it was called) and am wondering if that's what I've been feeling lately, but then, I wonder if it's too early for that...? I'm 5 weeks 3 days today... Well, that wasn't really advice was it and I certainly don't claim to have any wisdom about these things but at least you're not alone:) I really hope you catch that really nice, fat, mature egg and get your October baby:)

 

Sorry AF showed up for some of you, good luck next cycle:)goodvibes.gif

Good luck to those of you in your TWW (Sarah, Anya, Dekan....fingersx.gif and everyone else waiting as well:)dust.gif

 

LittleKind - were you able to get a test??

 

mamacatsbaby - how are you??lurk.gif

 

Hi to everyone else.wave.gif

 

AFM - I have my first 'official' appointment with my midwife today. Very exited:) Wondering if I should have betas done or not...? I know it can be a reassuring sign when all goes well but then again... I really don't want to add any stress, worrying about the results... I'm thinking I might pass on them. She is fine either way and said that sometimes they can come back not doubling... which can make moms worry unnecessarily and everything can be just fine... even if they aren't doubling. As I'm typing this, I'm really thinking I'll pass and just get the other usual testing done including my progesterone, etc... Anyone have opinions/thoughts on whether or not to do betas (I didn't do them last time either)?

I should've saved my first morning pee like stevi said. I dashed to Walmart and they only had the blue dye plus sign tests. I bought one even though I can't ever read them clearly. So I took it and it wasn't clear. I didnt need to pee so i only got a dozen drops on the stick, but looked possibly positive. I left work early to get hgc blood test. Haven't heard back!

Suzie, if you don't have concerns, I'd say its nice to not bother with some things. My son was totally healthy all through pregnancy so I did the bare minimum in tests. Didn't even know he was q boy. I've had troubles since then so now I'd totally do every test. If you can have peace of mind without it, then that's probably best, in my opinion.

Well, I haven't posted in some time, but please move me to Waiting To Know.

 

We had actually stopped trying, since money was very tight and I was doubting the timing. Then, a week ago, we had an Oops. On cycle day 13, when I think I ovulated, and def had EWCM. So...
