Okay, now I'm at the computer and not my poor phone:


Sherry - You are by far my favorite stalker and I've enjoyed stalking you through the years. I'm with Indie as I don't want to say good bye to you, either. You are the glue that help most of us together. Please hop on the google group so we can still keep in touch with you. I will miss your presence on these boards. Major, massive, huge, and tons of hugs to you.


Thnk - Come join us on the new thread. See you there.

01-04-2013 06:33 PM

Sherry - hope you make a few appearances to check in.


Everyone - see you in the new 2013 thread.

ThnkGod4My2 Hello all, I'm trying to figure out this site! So, I hope this goes on the scenic route thread! I am 33 y/o (my hubby older wink1.gif ) and on second month of clomid. We have 2 children, 8 y/o girl and almost 3 y/o boy. I am very grateful for the two I have and know I shouldn't feel sad that we have been unable to conceive again for the last year. (it has always been my biggest dream to have a large family and mother 4 or more lol children!) I LOVE kids!! Anyway, last couple years my body started acting funky with my cycle. Then about 6 mos ago after bleeding for 14 days my doc found a 6.8cm cyst in rt ovary. Surgery was scheduled. Do to a sever stomach trauma and scars I was going to have to be COMPLETLY opened up! Well lots of prayers later, day b 4 my surgery we did a final US and there was literally nO sign I ever had the cyst! Thank God! So, doc put me on 2 mos BC then I started clomid. Im now in tww period of second month of clomid. I think I'm 10dpo and that I Ovulated 12/26/12...first day lmp 12/12/12. Feeling extreme nipple and breast pain and some random lower pelvis shooting pains but feeling discouraged and doubtful.greensad.gif. Any words of wisdom GREATLY appreciated!!!!! Best of hope for you all on a BFP! Ps: I'm mostly unfamiliar with all the abbreviations on here, bare with me!
01-04-2013 10:47 AM
skj2011 I third what indie said. You are the heart of our group. Without you, there'd be no scenic route ladies.
01-04-2013 10:42 AM
toothfairy2be Sherry- i second what indie said. I dont want to lose contact with you!
01-04-2013 07:23 AM

sherry - i'm not sayin' goodbye. you better stay with us on our google group... that's not a ttc thread... it's a friendship thread :)


i am so happy to know you!

01-04-2013 07:13 AM

Sherry please stalk us and at least pop in once in a while! We will miss you!

01-04-2013 07:13 AM
MindlessChrissy Oh sherry. I know how you feel as i think our journey is over soon, too. Love and hugs to you, my friend.
01-04-2013 03:28 AM
sherryvhkb Goodbye old thread. I think i end here with it. Along the way we've made great friends. Cried and celebrated....and we had over 30000 reads!!! We were mdc famous!!! Good luck everyone. I look forward to staying connected via other places. I think my journey is done.
01-03-2013 12:45 PM

Alright ladies, new thread is here:


Please continue posting on the new thread! I feel like this gives us a fresh start and will allow us to more easily go back and keep track of our conversations and will make us less overwhelming to any newcomers wishing to join. I labeled it Winter/Spring and we'll just see how long it goes :) The original thread was started Feb 2012 and was almost a yr old! I hope no one is offended by me starting a new thread without everyone chiming in...

skj2011 Try 2mu!! I think it's more concentrated. What Hpt are you using?
01-03-2013 08:17 AM
MindlessChrissy A new thread wouldnt be bad. Got a bfn this morning. Dh saw the bfp last night but neither of us saw it this morning.

More later. On phone.

ETA - I dont get a dark bfp with Fmu. Should I try 2mu?
01-03-2013 07:09 AM
skj2011 indie - when did you get your BFP with your m/c? I hope it's just too early. I had a ton of EWCM during the tww with DD, so I don't think it's anything to be concerned about.

JPack - thanks for the thoughts on my chart. I had a HUGE spike today, so I'm confident I O'ed. I started the crinone. How many DPO are you now? When do you typically get a BFP? Fingers crossed that the trigger shot is all you needed!

Chrissy - Can't wait to hear about today's test!!

Shell - I'm so sorry for all you've been through. I honestly feel like a failed IVF is the same as a miscarriage b/c your hopes get so high. I think it would be a similar kind of loss. I think it's good that you are just winging it this month. And it sounds like your bases were more than covered. I really hope 2013 is a lucky year for you and DH.

Sila - Sorry about AF. She really does suck. I like your idea about a new thread. let's do it!

AFM - as I said to jpack, I got a nice temp spike today. I had acupuncture yesterday and she said my pre-O temps look good and that I should have post-O temps in the 98's and they should have a saw-tooth pattern. She said I still have some deficiencies, but my chart doesn't look too bad. If this month is not successful, she suggested I do a liver detox. Sounds like an interesting idea. She is changing up my herbs again too.

My current RE (not the specialist) called to ask about next cycle and if I want to go ahead with injectibles. I said yes, tentatively. Since I"m only 2 DPO, I think I should have some answers from the specialist before having to start next cycle. So, the order was placed for the meds and I just need to call when AF starts.
01-03-2013 05:47 AM
jpack Thanks for the advice sila so should I just wait? I'm really bad about testing. And I've been running for a couple years but I have bad knees- I'm not very good! I love it though, especially longer distances and usually run a six-ish mile run every week or two. Then I figured out that a 10k is a little over six miles (slow, I know- just figured it out last week) so now that's my new measurement! But no, I'm not really a runner.

I like it. I don' t check in as often as I would like, a new thread would be great.
01-02-2013 07:35 PM

Indie - Yeah, I tested again this morning even though I knew it would be negative. Waste of a cheapie test. I'm not sure why I feel the need to confirm what I already know. I just wasn't having any symptoms. Big difference from Sept. when I m/c which was the cycle we ttc so I just knew. I've been pg 3 times now and each pregnancy started the same symptoms wise. Re: the ewcm and not sore enough boobs - I don't think anything is "wrong" with you :)


SKJ - No prob ;)


Jpack - Personally, I'm going warn against testing out the trigger. It's crazy making. Absolutely. Crazy. Making. Just letting you know what you're getting yourself into. (for me it was anyways)

Oh, and are you a runner? I mean, because 10k is no beginner stuff! If so, me too :)


Chrissy - Hmm. Well, you know what they say about not trying...


AFM - I'm a crampy hungry bitch. Stay away from me.

01-02-2013 07:09 PM
jpack Shell, I'm so so sorry you're feeling blue- you've suffered a big loss and I can't imagine the frustration and grief but your resolve is inspiring! Good job on the bd!! wink1.gif I hope you get what you're after in 2013!! I hope we all do... No, no iui for us til next cycle. Big hug from over here.
01-02-2013 06:37 PM

Hi everyone... I have been laying low... depressed greensad.gif


TF: Yaaay so happy for you !!joy.gifjoy.gifjoy.gifjoy.gifjoy.gif <--- that is 5 for all your babies.


Indie : wave.gif  Sorry i have been MIA... and UGH sorry for your BFN.. I feel like I am so far behind with everyone !!


Chrissy: Yaaaay Goodluck!! and fingers crossed!!


Gtree: awwww I want to see more sono pic's pleeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeee


SKJ: thank you for the article.... sorry af is on her way


Dolphin : Good Luck on your IUI


Jpack: did you have a IUI? I am sorry i am so behind forgive me


Sherry: Hey girl heeeeeeeeey ;-)


Sila : Hiiii


AFM: UGH I really Don't really know what to say... I guess the failed IVF hit me really hard, then with the holidays everything has been crazy!! I feel horrible that I havent kept up with everyone as I should ... Forgive me please.... So I have no idea what cd i am on , or if I ovulated, or when to expect af ... lol ... I haven't temped or did any opk's or anything this cycle... but DH and I have BD'ed every other day... or everyday LOL ( we have been like 2 hormonal teenagers) I think I ovulated this past weekend... or last week.. ehhhh IDK.. haha I figure if AF hasn't shown up by Jan 15th I will test.... But I am not holding my breath, I have to remain real with myself from here on out!! Sad story: me and DH were on FB just scrolling and looking at stuff and there was a pic of one of our friends laying on the couch with his brand new baby, and DH said... that is what I want!! I told him I was going to make sure that happens one day!! as I chocked back tears.

So our new years resolution is to make a baby and get healthy. I PROMISE to read everyday from here on out!! <3  

01-02-2013 05:56 PM

Tf - Sending love to your 5, too. I also don't know if I'd name them. Personal choice, I think.


Sherry - Such a busy woman! Can't wait for your 15.


Jpack - When do you think you'll test?


Gtree - LOL Fighting already!


Indie - Are you testing again in a few days? I'm having a ton of ewcm for some reason. Not every day thankfully.


SKJ - Hope your chart figures out what it's doing.


MsD - Good luck with your IUI


Everyone else...HI! How are ya?!


AFM - Sorry about that drive by. I'm on cd29 but I dunno when I o'ed. We didn't bd after cd15 so this is a surprise since it was bfn 2 days ago then to top it off with a chemical last cycle and we were not trying in any way this month. So, we'll see what tomorrow brings. I'm anxious. lol

01-02-2013 05:38 PM
jpack Haha indie! I started a post, then went to the gym (ran 10k!) and then haaaad to eat. That's where I'm at! smile.gif
01-02-2013 05:34 PM
jpack Ok MChrissy sounds so exciting! Can't wait to see tomorrow! I know it's always with baited breath, but yay!

tf I'm so looking forward to hearing the report. I'm so glad you're feeling better, I think it sounds super promising- boy oh boy would I love for you and I to both be pregnant and be so close! Your odds are better than mine, though! That's so cool!!

indie I had wanted to do your balloon thing, but couldn't make it happen. I'm so glad you did though and so glad you had a good night!

MsD hello! Pleased to meet you!

Gtree that is so cool about the kicking. I think that must be a very stimulating environment for those babies- very cool! Can you tell whether they are on a similar schedule?

SKJ- I think maybe cd16? I have had temps begin to increase before o. One thing I found interesting is that the lh is about 6hrs delayed in urine. I was obsessed about pinpointing o a couple cycles ago because my DH arrived home from a business trip shortly after surge appeared on wondfos. Who the heck knows- looks like you had great timing regardless.

I'll be back with more-

I did break down and buy a pack of wondfos - I knew I'd be forking out all kinds of money if I tried to wait. Preemptive strike! I'm kinda excited to test out the trigger, but it would be great if I had the willpower not to test at all.
01-02-2013 05:05 PM

oh, chrissy how exciting!!!! can't wait for the a.m.!!


toothfairy - that is very, very good news! i don't know how i'd feel about naming the embryos, either. probably wouldn't know unless i was in that situation. i feel like i will have a hard time thinking of a baby as a baby until i see that blasted heartbeat. oh, how i want to see a heartbeat (or two!)


skj - thanks for that article! i know i've heard that amh doesn't relate to quality but it's nice to see it in print and from such a recent study. i will go with sila's assessment of your O date since I'm so far removed from charting. 


sila - you said you're waiting for AF... did you test again? did i miss that? i tested tonight (9dpo) and... surprise! BFN


gtree - i loved your post! you are getting a glimpse of the next 18 years (or so!) of you life! at least right now it is contained!! 


sherry - can't wait to see you back on google groups and with your list of 15!


bebe - you too!


shell - where are you? hope you are well.


jpack - where you at?


msd - best of luck! i'm right behind you... iui this next cycle...


afm - like i said to sila, i'm 9dpo and bfn. totally don't think i'm pregnant but i tested anyway. very few symptoms at all though i'm a wee little bit crampy today but nothing i haven't experienced a zillion times before. however, i continue to have quite a noticeable amount of ewcm. i have had it show up in the 2ww before but never this much. i'm hoping that doesn't mean anything bad... i don't feel funky at all (meaning i don't *think* it's an estrogen dominance thing) my breasts are only slight sore (would have thought they would have been massively sore on progesterone but nope. of course i did cut down my dosage) anyway... a lot of words to say that nothing interesting is going on :)

01-02-2013 04:45 PM

Yeah Chrissy!!! You had to be early than you thought the first time. Your body wasn't tricking you! Snuggle in tight little baby.

01-02-2013 04:38 PM
skj2011 Ooh Chrissy!! Good luck tomorrow!
01-02-2013 02:09 PM
MindlessChrissy A quicky to say "holy shit its a squinter" will retest in a.m.
01-02-2013 01:01 PM
skj2011 Thanks Sila. I'll see what tomorrow's temp is and start the crinone if it's still up.

Sorry AF is on her way. hug2.gif

I just found this article from 2012 which is reason enough not to give up hope for those of us with dimished ovarian reserve.
01-02-2013 12:32 PM

SKJ - I'm anti adjusting temps, but both charts are looking like CD17 ovulation to me. Especially since your last positive opk was CD15, you still had EW on CD17 and you cervix was starting to change. Based on signs I would actually say CD17. I saw start the Crinone tomorrow anyways. My chart this month kind of rose slowly as well.

01-02-2013 12:27 PM

Chrissy - Did AF show? Did you test again?


Jpack - How's the 2ww going? Are you planning on testing?


Indie - What about you? Are you going to test?


Dolphin - Good luck! I have the same worries. We are planning only 1 injectable cycle.


Gtree - Too cute!!! Do you have names picked out for them?


Tfairy - Wonderful!!! I'm glad you called back. Out of the eggs that were mature that is great fertilization! Please try not worry. I would be mixed about naming them too. I didn't name my m/c babies.How can we distract you?


AFM - Just waiting for AF. More like waiting for NEXT AF so we can get started. 


I'm eating everything in sight...

01-02-2013 12:25 PM
skj2011 TF - Amazing news! I'm so happy and excited for you!!! So, how many are you putting back in? I can't recall what your plan is.

Gtree - So great to see them in action. DD was having the time of her life with her cousin this past week and I kept thinking how great it would have been if she was a twin. I can't believe you are 1/2 way there. When is your due date?

indie - so glad to hear NYE went so well. Any plans to test? :sheepish

MsD - Good luck with the IUI. I hope so hard that it works out for you.

Chrissy - Sorry about the BFN. Ugh. I want you to get your sticky baby already.

Sherry - Hi!

AFM - I'm totally confused if/when I O'ed. Normally, I get a +OPK and a nice temp shift that all matches up. On CD 14, I got a smiley OPK and the wondfo was dark, but not as dark as it usually gets for me. The next day, the wondfo was very dark, but the smiley was gone. So confusing. My cervix felt very soft on CD 16, and by yesterday (CD 17) it was firmer by the afternoon. Today it's low and firm and my CM is no longer EW. So, I"m fairly certain I O'ed. I had O pain on CD 15, so I think that I likely O'ed on CD 16 based on all the signs together. But, my temp has been stubborn. I've been waking up at different times so I've been using a bbt adjuster. It has been totally in line with my normal temps, so I think it's working pretty well on those days that I wake up at a different time. Yesterday, however, I woke up later than usual and my temp was just slightly elevated. Here are the two charts of the unadjusted temp for yesterday and the adjusted temp. Today's temp was the same as yesterdays, but today I took it at 6am and yesterday was at 730am. My normal time is 645. The only reason I really care about any of this is that I want to start the crinone, but I want to make sure I have O'ed. I usually wait for 3 high temps to start the crinone. Any thoughts? If I put in the same temp tomorrow as it was today, I get crosshairs with the unadjusted temp, but not with the adjusted.

Unadjusted temp:

Adjusted temp:
