I figured since it was the 6th of June it's about time to start the June thread orngtongue.gif. Hope no one minds, this is my first time as threadkeeper so if there's anything I should be doing or that I should know, feel free to tell me! I'm really hoping that June is our month for some BFPs! *Baby dust* to everyone!

 

Kaydove and deborahbgkelly I've added you to the list. Let me know if this is ok, and if you would like to edit your blurb at all!

Thanks for adding me to the list! I'll start off the June thread with some good news. My suspect annovulatory cycle ended up being a positive pregnancy test on Wednesday! Feeling kinda freaked out but trying to enjoy each day and stay positive. The cool thing is that I would have a Valentine's Day 'due date'!

Tantylnn:  Thank you for taking over the thread :)  Not that i mind doing it, but i only have online access at work and there are at least 2 days a week i'm off work and then there are days that we are so busy that  i don't get a chance to even look online.  I read your post over on the other ONE THREAD and i'm soooooo happy that your cyst is gone and that no enod.

 

 

AFM:  I'm out this month yet again!!! AF found me this morning (CD20!!!!)  I'm sooooooo not use to these really short cycles!!!  I'm going to have to find something to do about it!!!

 

 

Welcome everyone!! I'm in a really big hurry today but tomorrow i'll have a better chance of being able to catch up and be a little more personal :)

Update: I don't think medicated will happen this cycle, but possibly next cycle. We are testing my progesterone again and DH is getting an SA. I will also be being checked for PCOS and making dose to treat hypothyroid is enough.

Hello Ladies! I would love to join the group.  I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 19, again when I was 27 and again at 31!  I REALLY have PCOS.  I'm currently 31 and my partner is 33.  We have been trying to conceive since 1/11, but I have been trying to regulate my cycles naturally for over a year now!  I finally took the advice of my ND and started seeing a reproductive endocrinologist who has prescribed metformin.  It has been three weeks, so I haven't seen any dramatic changes, as of yet.

 

I'm currently on cycle day 69 and I am an estimated 12 to 15 days past ovulation.  We went on vacation and I forgot the thermometer!

 

Here's the link to my chart:

 

http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3364ee

 

I've taken several tests and they were negative, but my chart looks great.  I've read that women with PCOS have low levels of hCG resulting in many false negatives (despite the stage of pregnancy), as well as the increased risk of pregnancy among other things.  It may be a pipe dream, but has anyone read or had a similar experience?!

 

 

Me (33) + Him (34) = US 10.3.09

Trying to conceive since 1.6.11.  Diagnosed as phlegm stagnant with PCOS and a blocked tube.

First loss on 3.5.12. Second loss on 5.19.12. Cautiously optimistic that the 3rd time really is a charm. EDD 8.7.2013.

Wow, Kaydove what fantastic news!!! I've moved you to the graduates list. joy.gif

 

Not a problem, Brichole and thanks! I'm so relieved about the cyst being gone. No surgery for me, and hopefully some clomid and metformin at my next appt! I'm sorry AF has found you, she has no business visiting you at all, much less on CD20! Keep us posted on what your research turns up.

 

Thanks for the update deborahbgkelly, I made small changes to your blurb to reflect your update. Let me know if you'd like to change it more. Good luck with the testing, keep us updated on what happens!

 

Welcome.gif krunchykAre you TTC #1? If you give me a blurb I can add you under the appropriate heading. I'm sorry that you have to be here with us in the IF forum, but happy that we can all be here to support you! Sounds like an exciting 2WW, fingers crossed that the Metformin was all you needed!

 I found this to be true with my first pregnancy (with the low hCG levels).  I wasn't officially diagnosed with PCOS until i started TTC #2 and hadn't gotten pregnant in several years....(there's a 7 year difference in my two) ANYWAYS....I tested about 14 DPO with #1 and didn't  get a BFP the first two or three times that I tested.  Once I finally found out i was pregnant i was almost 3 months pregnant!!!  And those tests came back so faint that i almost didn't want to believe that it was real!  (i had only been married to my XH for 9 months when we found out!!)  Now with this last pregnancy, i was seeing a RE and I don't know if it was the medication that I was on or what but i was able to get a BFP at 10dpo at like 830 at night and it was faint but i expected that with being so early.  My BFPs got darker a LOT quicker with the second on so i don't know what the difference was in the two but i honestly think it had to do with the way my body was building up the hCG due to my PCOS not being treated the first time round!!!    I really hope that you're able to find more answers and get your body straightened out to get a BFP of your own soon and WELCOME to this thread, though i hate that you're even having to come here!!!

 

 

AFM:  Okay, AF is playing BIG tricks on me this cycle.  I was FOR SURE she was here yesterday because (TMI) i was actually BLEEDING yesterday at one point...(like enough to count as a CD1!!!) Well, the rest of the day and this morning when i woke up there was nothing but brown mixed with pink when i wipe...nothing on my pad!!! I really don't  get it! I wish my body would just make up it's mind what it wants to do so I can just get on to my next cycle!!!!  I guess i'll hold off and see if she shows up for good over the next week or whatever.  DH kinda broke my heart though because i honestly thought we were both on the same page with already being ready to TTC again since it took so long with Emma but he told me yesterday when i told him AF had pos. shown up that he was happy that i'm not pregnant right now.  I honestly thought i was going to cry!!! I'm just happy that i have you ladies to come talk to about all of this!  He probably wouldn't understand my frustration....

Kaydove-CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I have to agree, great way to start out June! Perhaps you are the start of great things to come for us all. :)

 

Brichole-(throwing caution to the wind...) Could it be implantation bleeding...?:D

Keeping my fingers crossed. And your dh would certainly come around if you were pregnant. I think alot of men have that kinda of panic-y thing thinking that there may be another baby coming...just mho.

 

I'm still waiting to o. Day 19 now, which is usually when I o. Temp is low today though. :( Gonna be bd'ing like mad for a bit trying to catch that egg.


Jennifer, Wifey to Stevenwinky.gif, Mommy to Gwhistling.gif and Hfairy.gif. TTC for 5 years.
Praying for God to bless us again!

Yay, Kaydove!! joy.gifStick, little bean!

 

And Tanty, glad things are moving forward for you.

 

AFM... DH GOT A JOB!!! Details are still hazy, but he'll be making (in my opinion) a LOT of money. Well, at least 1.5x my current salary, anyway! So hopefully we can afford more fertility treatments later this year. I'm on CD20-something, I think, and no signs of ovulation. I've put myself back on metformin over the last couple of weeks, though, and am doing great on it! So different than last time. So I'm going to be upping it to twice a day next week to see if that helps anything. Of course, I can only refill it once more before the refills expire, then I'd actually have to find a doctor to represcribe it to me. (I left the doctor who prescribed it to me initially.)


Monkey (30) + Pirate (28) = a forever family (5/10) - Baby Bird (8/12), our long-awaited first, one (9/13 @ 7w 6d), and Baby Yummy (10/6/14)

 I am hoping that's what it is :)  I would be more than happy to be pregnant right now....and i agree that DH is just worried about "what we would do" or "how we would get by" with two being in diapers...but you know i'm not that worried about it.  What ever happens happens at this point lol. 

 

I hope that you O soon!!!  And at least you'll be having fun BDing!! LOL   I can't believe how much my "DRIVE" has gone up since I stopped taking my BCPs.  I finally want to be touched by dh!  I am still trying to find my thermometer but who knows where it is at this point!! We have so many boxes that we haven't even looked thru yet lol.  But at least i'm in my new house and things are starting to get a little better...we had a pretty big blow up with each other a couple of days ago because i feel like i'm putting more effort in getting things unpacked than DH is but we made up and at least i feel better after getting it off my chest!

MonkeyScience So happy for you that more $ means more treatments in the future! I'm still hopeful you won't need to be filling more prescriptions though. Congrats to you and your DH too, it is so hard looking for employment so good work scoring the job!!

 

Sending O vibes your way Zanaleegoodvibes.gif

 

No worries deborahbgkelly smile.gif

 

AFM, FF gave me crosshairs for O on CD14. If they stay that way then there is no way that this is our cycle and I'll pretty much just be waiting for AF duh.gif. I normally O late and have long cycles, so I honestly thought I had about another week before we even needed to worry about getting some well-timed BD in. With the HyCoSy on CD12 I was told I wasn't allowed to BD before then, then afterward I spotted and was crampy for like 3 days and wasn't feeling very up to BD. Now it looks like we missed our chance! I'm super bummed because I've heard that the HyCoSy can increase your chances for fertility by leaving your fallopian tubes wide open. Shoot! crap.gif

 

On the positive side, I guess this will not be a stressful 2WW for me and I should have a pretty normal length cycle which is really good!

Well, guys, you are not going to believe this. Last Tuesday, 7dpo, I got that nice implantation dip and wondered, "hmmm, will my temp go nice and high again tomorrow or am I just getting AF on this bizarre cycle?" The next morning, yeah, temp went up...to 101. I have been sick in bed since then! It was so unusual, because no one else in the house was sick, and usually we get sick in predictable waves - DS, 24 hours later me, 24 hours later DH. Plus, when was the last time I ran a fever? I don't even remember. I slept for almost four days straight! On Friday, though, 10dpo, a strange twinge gave me the incentive to stay awake long enough to test. I took the little strip and put it down on my nightstand and closed my eyes. A few minutes later, I sort of lifted my head up as minimally as possible and there was a clear second line on there. Thereupon, I uncover superhuman strength and run around the house sobbing hysterically while checking the second line by the light of all the windows. It's there! It's real! Of course, I now convince myself that somehow me moving the strip around too much caused a false positive, so I dip another strip (different kind of cheapie for extra verification power) and lay it absolutely flat. The second line comes up. I start sobbing all over again and call DH at work. Luckily I manage to get the news out before I break down in joyous crying so he doesn't think something terrible has happened. I harness remaining super flu-busting strength to drive myself to the drugstore (DS is at preschool) to pick up some Tylenol and some way-too-expensive digital tests. Yes+! Not only am I overjoyed because I want this pregnancy with all my soul, but because we learned DH has to be away on business for a week...right when I would have expected to o next time. And to make it worse, that week is my birthday. But instead...best birthday gift ever?!

 

I am going in tomorrow (Monday) for a beta level. Still a little freaked out that I had a fever the second I got pregnant but my RE reassured me, and everything I've read says fever (higher than what I had in any case) is dangerous starting at about 14dpo because of the neural plate. But, if it's okay, I'll wait to be moved, just because I'm superstitious like that.

 

Kaydove, according to my suspected o day, my EDD will be 14 Feb. too! Here are lots of prayers that everything goes well and we get some great betas next week. A huge congratulations, Kay!

 

And here is wishing that this June BFP wave visits each and every one of you! I don't think I've had a chance yet to say welcome to deborahbgkelly and kkrunchy - I hope your stay here is short and that in the meantime, you find some support along this difficult journey here. Everyone here is simply amazing!


Me + DH + DS ('07) + after a long and bumpy road, thrilled that our twin boys are finally here (DS2 & DS3, '12)

YAY!!! I was looking at your chart and thought i saw a + but i didn't want to spread your news before you did!!! I'm SUPER excited for you!! Sending out sticky vibes to you too!!!!  I am praying for you on that beta for tomorrow!!!  Please keep us updated!!! I hope that these BFPs are contagious!!!

 

 

 

AMF:   I'm having to wear a pad now but not for pink or red blood but it's brown...and it's only on my pad and when i wipe...nothing is going into the toilet!!! By now i usually have an actual FLOW and my RE always told me that it's not CD1 until you have a FLOW FLOW so...i'm still not onto the next cycle yet.  I know that i'm not in anymore with as much "brown blood" which i guess is old blood build up that's coming out (tmi sorry) but i am so happy for the two of you who have gotten your BFPs this month!!! That is just amazing!

Thanks for the welcome and congrats! I seem to be gearing up to O really early this month. Has that happened to anyone? I am only CD 8, but I am having O-like cramping, some fertile CM. No positive OPK yet, but I feel like I might get it this afternoon or tomorrow. Hubby is scheduled for SA tomorrow. Kind of freaked it might happen before his SA. Not a clue how to handle that. I'm okay if it happens tomorrow (as his SA is first thing tomorrow morning), but not so cool if I get it this afternoon or evening. Any thoughts?

P.S. I have had a 24 day cycle in the past (though I O'd much later than CD 9). I understand it is not impossible to O this early with a real short cycle.

Hi everyone!

 

Congrats to Kay Dove and Gozal!!! Can't wait to hear more as you guys progress!

 

Welcome KrunchyK. I'm glad you went to seek help. I hope the metformin works!! And Deborah, I'm glad you don't have to worry about the really early O. I don't think it's a big deal if you O early, however. personally, I think better earlier than later :o)  And EWCM can come for a few days so I'm glad that it's no longer a problem! Good luck on your DH's SA tomorrow!

 

Things have been busy where I am. We have been just trying to get our apartment set up. AF showed up today so I'm out but we'll be trying and IUI cycle this month (Femara) and then going on to IVF. I think that all of this stuff has been taking its toll though...I'm feeling exhausted almost all the time now. I think it's a mix of moving and TTC. Anyway, hope everyone has a great start of the week!

 


Attempted induction at 38 weeks; ended up with a c-section.

In love with my baby boy Colin and baby girl Sienna!

Your story is amazing! I hope you keep a journal or blog or something so you never forget it smile.gif I won't move you to the graduates list until you're good and ready, just let me know!

 

Renavoo Sorry AF found you, I hope you're able to get some R&R while she's here. TTC is exhausting! Someday we'll have BFPs to make it all worth it!

 

AFM, Looks like I'm not out this cycle after all. I thought I didn't get any BD in the fertile window FF gave me. But this morning I got a +OPK and a low temp, so FF changed it's mind and says I haven't Od yet. YIPPEE!!!

I'm at work SOOOOOOO early this morning! I got here at 3am alabama time and let me tell ya...i really didn't wanna roll out of bed!  I will be training one of the new girls who we've hired starting this morning and i'm kinda nervous about that lol...especially since AF FINALLY decided to kick it into gear and bring on a full flow now!!!  So i'm on CD1 now and thinking about using my OPKs earlier than i have been to see if i'm Oing early since my cycles are so short now.  This one was 22 days and that's about the average now days.  It's really taking a lot for me to get use to these cycles being so close together.  I don't know if i'm happy that i'm having shorter cycles or depressed about it.  LOL.  The only good thing about my long cycles was the fact that I was able to get more BDing in during the month lol.  I think this month we are just going to play it by ear though and if i don't notice any O this month then I will go to a herbalist around here to see if they can recommend anything for me to start taking. 

 

Deborahbgkelly:  I hope your DH's SA goes well today and i'm happy that your O is holding off until after the test is done :)  It's nice when our bodies decide to listen to what we want lol.  Welcome to the thread and I really hope that your stay is short!

 

 

Renavoo:  Sorry that AF showed up yesterday but at least you have a plan for this cycle!!!  I really hope that you don't have to go on to the IVF cycle because of a sticky bean with the Femara/IUI cycle :)    I hope that you finish getting settled in soon and that you can just rest.  I TOTALLY understand the stresses of the TTC with IF issues and it really does drain you to the BONE!!! 

 

 

Sending out lots of love and hugs to everyone!!!  : )

Thanks Brichole! It happens so rarely that our bodies listen to us, that I am extremely grateful. Will keep everyone posted.

Hi all - I haven't check in here in awhile, so I thought I'd drop a line.  Congrats Kaydove and Gozal!  Way to start the month of June off on a good foot! 

 

Great news, TantyLynn!  Glad you didn't miss your window!

 

AFM - AF showed up on Friday, in full force on Saturday.  I'd had a few - hpts, so I was prepared and not too disappointed.  The good news is that it looks like I O'd on CD 14 or 15 and my LP was 14 days.  I don't think I've ever had a 28 day cycle in my life, so this is great!  Right now I'm on CD 3 and will start my 2nd round of Clomid @ 50 mg on CD 5.  I had little/no CM this past month (used pre-seed) and was concerned about my lining. 

 

Judging by AF, I think my lining was pretty thick.  Anyone have any thoughts on this, i.e. whether you can tell from AF how your lining is doing?

Brichole I'm glad AF stopped teasing you and is out in full force now so you can move on! It's totally crazy how some of us have problems with late O and super long cycles, and some of us are exact opposite! I hope your cycles lengthen out on their own, and maybe the OPKs will help give you a clue about what's going on. If not, seeing an herbalist sounds like a good plan. Fingers crossed for a longer cycle this time around! 

 

LuluRoo I don't know for sure, but I was under the same impression as you - heavy AF = thick lining. I think having a normal-length cycle is a good sign and I am SO hopeful for you on this second round of Clomid.

 

AFM, DH and I have definitely gotten busy, but that included a huge fight last night b/c he tried to tell me he was too tired. Last month he did the same thing, said no on the day I got the + OPK. So frustrating! I know he's just stressed, but it's hard not to get caught up in the moment and say things you don't mean. We've made up now though and I should be covered if O happens in the next day or so shy.gif..

Thanks for all the love, guys! It means a lot to me. My beta from yesterday (13dpo) was 44, which the office was very happy with! Now I do two more quantitative betas and then u/s. I think I will really start to breathe again if the first doubling time comes back looking good. I am definitely feeling pg - I gag if I go near my beloved morning coffee or evening cup of tea, have an aversion to sweets of all things, and can fall asleep at any given moment if I am anywhere near a couch. Yay!!!

 

LuluRoo, I always thought, too, that AF reflects the thickness of the lining. But I have learned that it's not so, due to the monitoring I've had. My last AF, I knew for a fact that I had a nice, thick, triple-stripe lining from u/s. But my period was the same light one I've had since my first pregnancy. From what I understand it's mostly hormones that control the heaviness or lightness of our periods. Apparently that's why young teenagers often get heavy periods, because their hormones are still regulating - I did, ugh. They were the worst. Certain blood conditions (like anemia) can affect bleeding amount too, I think. However, it seems to me like a heavy period would at least have to indicate that you had a substantial lining, or else what would that be, coming out? It's more the other way around, that if you have a light period, it does not mean that you had a poor lining.

 

Tantylynn, Yay for well-timed bd!

 

Brichole, boo for AF but here's to a brand-new cycle!

 

Renavoo, hoping this femara/iui cycle totally rocks for you!!


Me + DH + DS ('07) + after a long and bumpy road, thrilled that our twin boys are finally here (DS2 & DS3, '12)

I can understand that DHs get stressed too. My DH refused to go a third night last month and it was, of course, the day I O'd. I tried to give him some warning this time and he grumbled. Take comfort in the fact, that the 2 or 3 days before O are actually your prime days since it gives time for the egg to travel down the fallopian tube and meet right on O day (if we're lucky). That doesn't mean I'm not going to insist on quite a bit from DH this cycle, but if I can't get him to cooperate as much as I would like, I can feel a bit better about it.

Having a hard day today and could use some support. I want so badly to be excited for DH's cousin and his wife, but instead I started crying. I'm sure after I get over some of these feelings, I will be very excited for them.  I don't think they started officially trying much before we did and they are 12 weeks along. They announced it today. We are now the last children/grandchildren to have no kids. Granted, we are the youngest, but not by very many years. This post is not meant make anyone who has their BFP feel badly, I am just having a rough day. I figured in this thread, most people would understand.

Oh Deborah, I'm so sorry you're having such a difficult day. I definitely know what you mean because there are days that I feel sad or upset too, when I see pregnant women walking around. It always gets back to "what the heck is wrong with my body?!" I hate not knowing what is wrong and why I'm unable to get pregnant. But keep your chin up. You WILL get pregnant. Definitely vent on this board because it helps to relieve some of the stress, especially when you know that people here understand what you're going through.

 

Thanks ladies, for the words of support. I'm really just trying to get my spirits up about this process too. I'm one of those people who hates not knowing what is happening. My DH has had to deal with a lot of mood swings because there are days that I just want to stop trying! I keep thinking that we have such an amazing relationship and I rationalize my disappointment at not being pregnant by thinking that my DH and I are so happy anyway. But I know that we really both want a little baby to love.

 

Anyway, Deborah, big hugs to you!! Hopefully, you'll be the one telling us, and your family, the good news!
