When people announce their pregnancies on MDC, I always wonder what the whole story was, so here's mine: in the past five cycles I've had one chemical pregnancy, three failed attempts, and now one pregnancy! I'm 38 and my husband is 44, and we have a toddler, so we're old and tired and can't have sex every single day. I have a very regular cycle, although I have a luteal phase that lasts between 10 to 12 days (it was 9 days when my son was conceived three years ago). I don't produce that much eggwhite cervical fluid. I'm still breastfeeding. I didn't take any medication (besides a regular women's multivitamin).
Here's luck for me, for a sticky healthy baby: :
And here's lots and lots of baby dust for all of you:
I am laughing as I write this...but YAY for your CM...LOL
It's funny how things like that can make such a big difference in your day...and then you can share it with people here and they are happy for you.
maybe Hallmark should make cards for such occasions.
Thanks for explaining the clomid to me. I hope it does the trick!
If I haven't said it already...congratulations!
Thank you for sharing your story. You and I are similar except I am not BF. DD 15mths weaned herself at 9 months. Not what I had planned since DD9 was on the boob for 3 years. I got pregnant when DD#2 was 11 mths and lost the baby 13 weeks later.
I wish you 9 months of happiness followed by a peaceful birth and a wonderful life with your growing family.
So I had cramping yesterday, then had the tell tale "ever so lightly brownish coloured CM", then wiped once and got bright red blood, put a panty liner on, and now NOTHING. No other colour, and dry as a bone when I wipe. Today is 13 DPO, and I should get my period today. Still a BFN.
Katie34, I think dropping the peripherals and focusing on enjoying your life is the right idea. I read something yesterday about patience and it was something like this: Patience is knowing that you want something and then enjoying the unfolding on your way to having that thing. Easier said than done, of course.
I'm loving life with my DH and DS (2/28/10) and expecting the surprise of my life in September!
It's good to see you back.
I can understand taking a bit of a break from all the monitoring.
I have thought about that too for myself. Temping makes me crazy but at the same time I do like the end result of seeing what is going on with my body.
If you are BDing every 2nd day then you should be fine.
That's what my gync told us.
*hugs* and good luck to you and DH
I just wanted to let you know that your chart looks fantastic! You've got a significant dip at 10dpo... implantation? Good luck!
Yeah, the temps look interesting on 10DPO.
I caved and tested this afternoon with a digital, as my temp was still elevated this morn (13DPO), but it was a BFN Do you think there's still hope for me? AF is due tomorrow... I'm scared that my temps will take a dive, and she'll make an appearance. The thing is - I have barely any 'symptoms' this month - my boobs are hardly sore and I've had some really light cramping on and off since 11DPO... but not much in comparison to other months. I don't know whether to take this as a good or bad sign. :
Yes I have gotten them, yes they suck, yes they go away. Strange that it would continue past AF since they usually hold AF up. Do you know for a fact that you ovulated last month? It sure looks like you did.
give it a few days to calm down it may already be gone but just tired from it.
So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!

Every day brings me closer to fulfilling my dreams of becoming a midwife and a mother
I'm just totally thrown off my this bleeding, it is light though so far...
Today is 9 dpo for me. I think my chart is looking good. If anyone wants to take a peak at my chart and LMK what you think I would appreciate it.
Oh how I hate the 2 ww. Kamie
