A little late to the show here ladies but things have been busy, busy.  Unexpectedly got a BFP on the 29th.  We thought we totally missed it.  My temps were up and down so my ovulation date kept changing.  Very excited to be having an early October babe.

NovaM1 Thanx Jjh:) See you in the feb tww thread!!
02-01-2013 04:49 PM
jjh5351 Nova- my doctor told me the same and that is about the norm! Ill be 9 cycles TTC this next cycle if I don't conceive but I know it has a lot
To do with pcos. I wouldn't stress about it too much (easier said than done) because you're not alone! Stress is a high factor in infertility like symptoms! Get some OPKs and test this next cycle and see if you're ovulating! If you're not ovulating but having regular periods that's a totally easy fix for most women by using clomid! I have my fingers crossed for you and if you need any support were all always here smile.gif

NovaM1 Serenyd: I definately agree on getting checked out. Long story short i was basically told without adequate testing that everything was fine and because of my age to try for atleast 12m:( so frustrating. Everyone close too me feel im obsessing too much about it and too relax. How do u do that after 8mo?!

Nova, I did this. Also watching for EWCM. I needed the clearblue because the Wondfo never gave me a clear positive, but once I saw that smiley face I knew I was good to go! And then I got my BFP! Good luck, and you might consider seeing a doctor too to get some testing done. 8 mos is a long time to be trying with no success, you may just be missing your window, but it wouldn't hurt to get checked out.

sparkle, I feel like I've gotten to know you so well, and in a way I hate that I won't be in the same group as you!! I'll definitely be around, and feel free to message me any time!!! (that goes for any of you gals!!)

 

I'm sending mega amounts of baby dust to you all!! *hugs* grouphug.gif

 

I'll probably drop into the feb tww club, so I'll still get notified whenever you all post :)

Yeah, Dahlia!! So, so, so happy for you!! Wishing you a very happy, healthy and uneventful 9 months. Enjoy every minute of being preggo mama. You will love it. I adored getting big and round, I felt so sexy and goddess-like. I am moving on over to the February TWW. Please drop in and say hello to us, tell us how you're doing. I'll miss you lots! hug.gif

Blonhrt88 Oh dahlia, beautiful test! I'm moving over to the feb TWW...

Nova - I'm so sorry.  I am having my first taste of what you're going through and I really sympathize :(

 

Dahlia - I'm so glad your numbers look good!

 

The negative I got yesterday proved true. Temps down this morning, and much heavier spotting. I will see you all in the latter half of February. Luckily I expect to be fertile right around valentine's day and my birthday, which should be fun :)

Aw Nova, I'm so sorry this wasn't your month :( Big hugs to you, I hope you heal soon. Temping and OPKs are a fantastic method. With temping, it's so nice to be able to look at a nice clear picture of what your body is doing, and when. I used a combo of wonfo OPKs and clearblue OPKs; I only used the clearblue when I knew Ovulation was close. That way I would have 2 tests verifying when I ovulated. But I'm a huge control freak apparently lol. Best of luck to you lady! xo

 

AFM- Talked to my doctor today, and got my beta results! My hcg was at 18, but she's not worried because I had the blood draw on the day of my missed period and that is a totally normal level :) She even said that I didn't need to get another blood test, but I requested one for my own peace of mind haha. I told my husband that the results look good, and I can tell he's very relieved and happy, like me joy.gif

Livnkadesmom Nova- head on over to the Feb TWW and we will teach you all about OPKs and Temping. DH and I tried for a year with DS. Once I started temping I was prego in 3 mths. It is amazing what u learn about your body by temping!

Oh yes, definitely the cheap ones! They work just as well. 

02-01-2013 05:10 AM
jjh5351 Keep your head up smile.gif OPKs are a great idea, I bought the cheap wondfo kind on amazon and they worked great! Good luck smile.gif
02-01-2013 04:49 AM
katiecornflakes Big hugs, Nova. It is so hard when it doesn't happen and you want it so badly. I would definitely think about charting and/or OPKs. Even being off by a few days could really drop your chances. Hugs and we will all have fun on the Feb thread! wink1.gif
02-01-2013 04:05 AM
NovaM1 Thanks danielle i will definately do that this month. I just never thought going into this it would be so hard.
02-01-2013 04:01 AM
DanielleNZ That's a really good idea when we were ttc ds2 my cycle was very regular but when I thought I was ovulating was wrong, I started using opk's and charting a bit more and that did the trick, I worked out that we had just been missing the ovulation window. Pin pointing it was essential for us. Good luck!
02-01-2013 03:49 AM
NovaM1 Thanks ladies:(This will be our 8th cycle ttc.. Maybe i should invest in some opk, eventhough im regular maybe im not ovulating. idk
02-01-2013 03:35 AM
DanielleNZ nova huge hugs! Be kind to yourself in the coming days! I'm truly sorry this wasn't your month. Lots of positive healing vibes headed your way :-)

I would like to think i will never give up but i dont know how much more i can take. I am however better this month than previous months because i know i have all you lovely ladies on this journey with me. Thanks for being the most supportive mamas in tha world. I'll make sure to keep u posted.....

katiecornflakes AKK - what a nice gesture. So glad you have such caring people around at a tough time.

Nova - definitely test if you want to!!

Dahlia - tests look good for sure!

Blonhrt - not everyone is gone! Still getting BFNs and PMS symptoms here so I'm sure ill be here for the feb TWW. Blech. We should have a margarita to celebrate when AF arrives. I'm sure Sparkle will join us! We can have some sushi too wink1.gif

We will miss you girls but come back to cheer us on and send some baby dust our way!!
01-31-2013 05:47 PM
NovaM1 Im 15dpo today, hope i make it to 16dpo with no af. FX

AKK - I love that your boss and his wife sent you a plant to recognize your loss. Too many people don't get it.

 

Dahlia - your tests look great!  

 

Nova - hope you get to test soon! Sunday sounds good to me - hope you can stay busy this weekend and not think about it!  

01-31-2013 05:41 PM
Blonhrt88 Wow this thread has grown since earlier today! I hope everyone is doing great!

Angel and chuord, I might be moving to feb. TWW with you. My normal pms has started. I turn on my Bruno mars on pandora, nag my husband about more romance, and light all the candles in the house. LOL. Pretty on track for starting my period in a week.

I guess I can't be sure until she shows her ugly....flow! I just don't have any symptoms or feel pregnant at all right now. I'm ok with it though. Just sad I won't be able to join all the friends I've made here that got their bfp this month! It seems like it was almost everybody!

Re the new group, of you want to make it easier for the rest of the group to join you could make it a 2 month due date club (oct and nov) or maybe a tww graduate thread? Just thoughts 😃 as I know how close everyone is!
 

 

Thanks Chuord! 

 

Anyone due in Sep or Nov feel free to join us in the Oct DDC! I'd love that and I'm sure all the other TWW grads would too.
