My heart is with you, Chuord. It takes so much longer than we think. It's so much more complicated, and it's a strange journey whe we never thought we' be taking a journey. Hold fast and move forward. A baby is on your journey. I believe it.

My scan is Tuesday afternoon. My belly is looking quite round, so our plan is to make this public one we hear the heartbeat. So much depends on a tiny beating heart. We already know we want to name her (or him) Hero. That's their name. I see great things, everything, in the future of this living soul. Our hero, born to live. born to become one of us.

I have a very tough final tomorrow, too. So, good thoughts for me for the next two days.

Thanks.

M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2000. DS #1 -- March 2001. DS #2 -- November 2002. (Ten year break!) DD -- October 2011. M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2013. Expecting #4 late July.

Scjp - Do you know when in your cycle you ovulated? Are your cycles always this long? Have you taken a pregnancy test? If your period is very late and you are feeling that ill, go see your doctor.

No I have no clue when I ovulate I know I got pain around cycle day 14-15 so maybe then lol. And yes my cycles have been crazy 35-45 days hasn't went longer than 45 yet. But I always get some lower pain like in my ovaries sometime during my cycle so I'm always guessin that's when I ovulate not sure. And yes I have taken a few and my last one was fri morning. And it was neg. and then showed a line a day later it was pink dye so just assuming evap

Hi Ladies!

Chuord I am sorry about your cramping and BFN. Hoping for some positive news for you soon. FWIW- I have had lots of cramping even when a BFP was on the horizon so you just never know until AF arrives. Looking forward to hearing about your specialist appt.

Primal, Hero is such a lovely name. Absolutely love it! Good luck with your scan.

Forgive me for not going through all of the messages I have missed. I've been keeping myself distracted with DD's cheer/tumbling competition and family in town over the weekend. DD's team finished in 2nd place! She was nervous but she did well....it was so sweet watching her little nerves and seeing the excitement on her face. I am glad to have that behind us though. They stress everyone out about the tiniest little details. Very high stress....but the kids love it and it is a great creative outlet for her. Burns a lot of her high-energy.

I wanted to post a pic but I get nervous that this is a public board and you never know what kind of creepos are lurking. She was so stinken' cute in her little uniform.

Anyway we have our 2nd ultrasound scan tomorrow. I surprisingly maintained some level of patience and waited....so I am expecting not to see a heartbeat. That way I won't be devastated if it is indeed the outcome. I will celebrate a miracle otherwise. Just hoping that there are no chromosomal abnormalities. I am 9 weeks today. I have been so sick that I lost the weight I had started to gain and my tummy is unnoticeable. I always had a bulge after I had DS so it just looks like I normally do. I went to lunch with a guy friend that I have known for 20 years since college on Saturday, and he is sort of a mess, but anyway he likes to joke around a lot and he looked at my tummy and accused me of faking a pregnancy. You'd have to know our relationship...sort of brother-sister type harassment. Anyway he thought that I just looked like my fluffy-bellied self. It makes me wonder if there is a little bub inside of there or not.....

I will check in tomorrow. Hope everyone is doing well. I have missed hearing about you all....talk soon

Wengrin, best of luck. That two weeks has really dragged, you are to be commended on your patience and fortitude! All my thoughts are with you for tomorrow and I have everything crossed for a really definitive positive scan. Glad DH is by your side.

Over here it's 12dpo. Totally sore boobs, creamy CM and frequent nausea. I have no idea whether it is the drugs tinkering with my hormones or something more exciting. It's funny how framing it in those two causes makes me either fed up or welcoming!!

Oops. Early post!

Chuord- I think it's tomorrow for your appointment, is that right?? Hopefully you will get an ultrasound and a full check over on your blood results. I am so hopeful that this will be a new phase for you. Be brave, it's very emotional. Thinking of you.

Background story: I have extremely irregular periods. Always have. I will go 8+ moths without a period and AF will finally show up for a couple days then the same cycle happens. I will have a normal cycle with birth control of course. So I have been off birth control for 10months. We have been trying. Months go by and still AF or BFP. Nov. we went to a fertility doctor. He put me on Provera to start AF and Clomid to O. Nov. 18th- AF. Dec. 2nd- O. I took a HPT 7DPO and got a BFN.

So that leads up to today. I'm 14DPO. I tested this morning and still got a BFN. I called the doctor like I was suppose to after my 2WW and his nurse said that he wanted to do a blood test just to make sure since it is the most accurate and depending on the results either schedule a pregnancy app or start Provera and Clomid round 2. What are the chances that I could get my BFP on the blood test? I feel like we did everything right. The doctor said our only problem was that I wasn't ovulating. I understand it could be positive if my levels weren't high enough before. I've just been really upset all day because I really thought my BFP was today. Opinions please?

Thank you,
Katrice.

Morning

Ladies best of luck for wengrin and chuord today. We are all behind you.

Over here my temp has dipped down again. That was ok before, now it just looks like a crazy chart, not a pregnant one :-( fed up.

Hi livesay. Welcome to our group, it's nice to hear from you. I hope this is your BFP, you always have a chance to get pregnant from any o, no matter how infrequent. I would strongly encourage you to push your doctor to find out why you are ovulating I frequently. Not only will that reduce your number of opportunities (less eggs to chase per year) but also the conditions that cause such a delay in ivylation will often affect your hormone levels, which affect your egg quality, quantity and pregnancy. I'm surprised your doctor hasn't done any investigation. First thought that springs to mind would be- is it polycystic ovarian syndrome? Google pcos. This is only top if mind because I have it. But it's so worth getting the diagnosis because the doctor can give you a drug to balance the hormones that will then make your cycle regular eg every 30 days and that massively increases your chances. It is diagnosed with a blood test and an ultrasound. I would urge you to push your doctor to refer you to a specialist to investigate.
Or if you have your BFP already, there's no need!!!

Hi it everyone else, especially wengrin. Keep breathing. Fingers and everything else crossed for clarity xxx

Couldn't have said it any better. We're all thinking of you.

Chourd - I saw your update in the other thread. I can't really imagine what it feels like to get all that info at once, but I am really glad that you have a doctor who is taking this seriously and some wonderful ladies here who can help with information, experiences and support. I hope you are doing well, much love to you.

Hi ladies- not good news. No heartbeat and baby stopped growing a few days after my last scan. I had some strong cramping the Thursday after I had my scan a couple of weeks ago. I think it happened then.

So now we are going in tomorrow AM for a D&C...I am pretty numb because I was expecting this. I am sad to break the news to DD but I cautioned her that sometimes this happens in the first trimester.

Thanks for all the kind and thoughtful words and support. It means so much.

Ooops I didn't even realise I posted on the wrong thread... Shows you how out of it I was yesterday wink1.gif...
Oxford lol about dh and his tests... We were able to do the full spectrum off dh one sample - luckily as he's not a fan either wink1.gif except he was like a rocket when given the chance to check they're movement out under the microscope... Keeps telling me they were moving well and nothing wrong with him - men! The fs was ''I've always wanted to get an max FACS by the balls' when checking him wink1.gif made my day...
Last night was both fun and distracting and hard - as I was spinning from info and my sister and fiancé came over as well - so no chance to discuss.
Ok essentially as I said last night fs said that I don't have the time to mess around, he is 60 + and said its like him he only has x Christmases left according to stats... Same with me. He said my AMH indicates egg supply, but that having many nuts in the tree doesn't stop it being harvest time and that they are all not in good nick... So we are to both take supplements to improve our 'quality' (I need to stop my vital greens anyway - Ranee and I decided- as it has vit a in it) most of the stuff on dh list is stuff I've been trying to get him to take! Mainly zinc... (Sigh - how long have I been trying to get that into him?!)
He said he would give us his thoughts and we could still chose what or nothing to do... We decided to go with his recommendation - even though going so medicated broke my heart a bit - but it's not about me, I'm just the vessel so?!...
This cycle I start clomid today 100mg, (3-8) I think day 8 will be the ink test + the lipoid all flush as apparently it seems to give an increased chance of pg this cycle (based on sesame oil originally (antioxidant)- they stopped using it and success rates dropped) also I need to be on antibiotics for that.
Then if nothing happens and I get AF we are straight into a two part (stimulation and o prevention) cycle with egg harvest via sedation and a needle through the vagina to collect eggs, eggs will be fertilized half ipsci? - not sure on spelling, half traditionally to see what happens then two reinserted after 5 days. Fs says that by doing ivf it gives me back the 17% chance per month I would have had being under 35. That's about it, on the ultrasound he said my lining looked normal for cd2, I have a benign 4cm cyst on left ovary - I get pain on the other side lol - which he will remove if already there for egg retrieval only. On pelvic exam I have some tightening on the left hand side of the cervix which could indicate some endo... At this stage he's not convinced a full lap is the way to go due to complication risk. Very nice, supportive staff - I had bloods taken at 245pm and hadn't had lunch yet, so was a little brainless by then... Earlier during the exams I shook all over - nerve reaction lol.
I'm now ready to embrace it all, I'm a little concerned about the possibility of insulin resistance making clomid not work. (For me I ovulate, but he wants more eggs per cycle so the chances are one is healthy) fs doesn't have high expectations of the clomid cycle - it's a stop gap while stuff is shut over Christmas lol, but I'm hoping the dye and clomid is all that's needed (at my age it will almost double my chances to 7.5% of getting pg lol)
Dh has agreed to the natural supplements cos I told him that I'm only compromising my body and going full at it if he commits the same wink1.gif lol he gets zinc and pumpkin seeds - you saw my list, I think it's only fair...
Sorry it's all me...
Wengrin? How are you? We are all sending love and hugs xxx

me 39, DH 39, one no babies yet due to previous poor health. Trying to make up for it now (TTC since November 2012) At least one confirmed chem.Ivf #1 march 2014 - 6 day 6 blasts, two transferred bfn, 4 frosties in waiting. Ivf #2 may, cancelled, Ivf #3 July... BFP! 15dpo 336 hcg, 17dpo 681 hcg... Looking good so far

Thank you all SO much. DS is going to go along with us to hospital simply because he has a hard time being with a sitter usually unless it's with a Buddy of his and even then his max is about 3 hours...then he starts getting fussy and looking for mama and daddy. So I would feel more anxious leaving him than to just bring him with. Hubby will take him outside during the procedure. I am not scared to be there alone (hubby couldn't have stayed with me during the "surgery" part of it anyway, but also I feel the warmth of all my girlfriends (near and far) who have been so supportive and sending hugs and warm energy. I will be glad once this is behind us. In especially looking forward to stopping the Prometrium and the symptoms going away. I have been so, so miserably sick. Vomiting all day is the absolute worst. I'm hoping I can recover and feel more like myself before Christmas next week.

Chuord it sounds like you are on a great path!! Excited for you!

Wengrin, I hope you managed to get some sleep? I understand your dilemma with DS, please make sure you get all the support you need from DH. It's so easy to focus on taking care of kids and miss taking the support that we need. I'm going to be thinking about you all day today and holding your hand across the Atlantic. Be kind to yourself honey xxx
