Hello everyone Tricia
the thread is lovely, thank you for being the hostess this month. Sorry to hear about your bfn but you know it is still early.Hezzy
I am glad you had a positive experience at the dr's, your plan sounds like a good one I too hope you get pg before you get to go in for tests.
, I hope you are feeling better today and that your 2ww speeds by.Racecar
, congrats on the copious ewcm, that is nice ! And if you do go to Iowa, think of all the fun you'll have building snowmen and ice skating. There is a certain charm to coming in from the cold and having hot cocoa while your ears and nose are still cold.Allisonrose
, Welcome ! Nice to have you here. Yeah, I am 12+ months ttc too. I have started slowly posting on the 12+ month thread but this is such an awesome group here I couldn't leave it. I am with you on the RE/new doctor thing. Relax, pray and come back in 4-6 months ? After a year of trying ? That's a bit off to me. If you think your progesterone is low have you considered progesterone cream ? My dr recommended it to me (Pro-gest by Emerita is the brand), I just started it a week ago. It has 20mg per application (2x/day) which I think is about a fifth of what prescription progesterone is, so I think it is pretty mild. And it is one of those can't hurt kind of things (what my dr said). I use it from ovulation to AF, 1/4 tsp 2x/day.ItyBty
I just got some pre-seed but I didn't use it this cycle because I had EWCM for the first time in months. www.preseed.com
is the official website, you can order online or they have a list of stores state by state where you can buy it. You can also get it on ebay, etc. I bought mine in the trading post here at mdc.
How to tell EWCM ? It's not always a river, sometimes its a blob. The stretchy-ness of it and the slippery-ness of it helps define it. One sure way is to float it in water , it does not break up but looks like a gooey sting or something.Funnygrace
it looks like you are about to O ? Good luck catching that egg ! I hope this is it for you.SarahJen
, your chart *does* look good. I know I for one will be watching it. Do you have a test date in mind ?
I think even a tiny bit of EWCM is ok, people conceive without EWCM too. You really only need it in one place, and it is a small one.
I don't know whats going on with me, I have felt very emotional for the last day or two. Like PMS, but its a little early for that. I think its a buildup of stress and the ttc and pregnant friends and babies. I just try to hold it all in but sometimes it leaks out. I have bouts where I feel like I will burst into tears and then its gone. It feels hormonal. And now I am heading into the toughest part of all... the last 1ww.
