JennyT Hi everyone!
Thrilled to join in here I'm either 'Waiting to O' or maybe '2Ww' not sure! Bd days 11&13 and today is day 15 but no signs of ewcm so who knows! I'm not really chatting per se, just following cm for fertility signs and regularly bding.
I'm Jenn, on the west coast of canada, married to an Irishman. Ttc #3 .

First try at the BD last night!  OMG the suspense is killing me!  We still have a few more fertile days to try before and during ovulation.  Eeeeeee!

Have you tested yet?

I guess since it's officially December, we should open a new thread? Or is there one already? If so, wifeofant, could you post a link in here? Thanks for thread keeping!

Two years! What a struggle! Welcome. Hate to sound abrupt, but I'd quit TTC with whomever gave you an STD! That's my advice! As for tube damage, can you get an HSG (the dye test)?

Here's hoping!  Geesh!  

 

WifeofAnt- I agree, you are so young (unlike me, approaching 37).  But I get it, when you want a baby, you want a baby!  It's hard to not have that happen when your heart is longing for that little one.

so, that's a 93% chance that you won't have twins...those are pretty good odds. But you're SO young! You still have many years that you could try and not worry about medical or pharmaceutical intervention. I didn't realize you were so young! You've got plenty of time to have more babies!

rosie2727 wifeofant: it's my understanding that clomid doesn't increase chances of multiples. I took it with first child - just bc we'd been trying for a year. But in hindsight, I don't think I needed it. Well, obviously since I've gotten pregnant 5 times since then....I forgot about the Depo too.

One things for sure, when my daughters get to the age they should consider BC, I'm going to tell them every horror story I've heard of every type of BC! So many women get on certain types bc it's right for them at the time, without realizing the repercussions when they're ready to get off BC. Do you wish you'd never taken that kind before? Sometimes I'm afraid my ectopic was somehow caused by my IUD. Probably not, but I'd probably never use an IUD again.

There's really nothing I can do at the moment. Even if we did try Clomid, I have no guarantee that my lining isn't still being affected by any remaining Depo Provera. If I'm still not ovulating by February, then it would be at such low levels it might/should not even be detectable anymore and then we could start thinking about Clomid or something. We really don't want twins though. Clomid is practically our ceiling anyway. Our insurance only covers treatments for "natural conception". So far we're just going to wait and see what happens.

 

Edited to add: I know I have PCOS. I was diagnosed in 2009 but I still ovulated, although not "like clockwork". It didn't stop me from conceiving DS, although it may have given me an oversupply once he was born.

I have Dr aniexty issues and I really really like her.

So back to no meds and simply trying on our own. Slowly starting to feel better but not fully greensad.gif
That's a lot to think about! I have considered using the prog cream, but was afraid it could mess with my cycles. Think I'll pass for sure now. Only reason I wanted to try was bc I usually have low prog after BFP. I also fear tho that if I do get a BFP with a non viable pregnancy, that the extra prog will just prolong the sad inevitable....

AFM: question....anyone ever feel a bit irritated down there after coming off period? I've had tons of BV issues in the past. But it's been a lot better in the past year or so. But I always feel like my PH is off after my period. And when we BD right after AF is done, I feel like it kind of hurts. Just a little. Part of me even wonders if it's just in my head cause I'm so scared it's gonna hurt. KWIM? Or maybe I'm tense cause of the fear, which is what actually makes it hurt? Anywho...AF is gone and we're back in the saddle...DH better get prepared cause we are going to try extra hard this month. If we have another episode like last month where we only "try" one time 4-5 days prior to O, I might just strangle him. Today is CD7, well technically 8 now that it's 12:55am...glad to get rid of old sperm and put "fresh troops" on the front line. Lol!

  • WifeofAnt that is really great news:) My FF put me at 5 dpo today, and a O at CD 9, which just cannot be true. I also learned some things about the Andro patch my DH is on for Low T, bad news. so we have put off TTC until January, to give his body a chance to get the fake T out of his system, and get him on some HCG shots, to help us TTC. We would try next month, but my due date would be my angel son Jacobs birthday, and i just cannot emotionally go through a pregnancy knowing that. Ill still hang out, and will hopefully be joining a birth group in January or February:)

 We are also finding out if his insurance covers transplants, but if not, he get s a bonus in March, as well as taxes, so we can always use that money to have it done:)

 

On a sad note, he feels just horrible about all of this, it started with the ability to not be able to BD, and that was rough, now he knows he is the reason we cannot have a baby right now, and it hurts him so much:( Im making light of it in front of him, telling him the next couple months will give us a chance top get uber healthy before TTC again, and hoping that makes him feel batter. When he isnt home tho, I cry:(

I'm not fertile. :energy

 

My body has been trying so hard, unsuccessfully, to ovulate. I think this AF might have actually hit a reset button in my ovaries so I'm actually starting at the beginning of a cycle at the beginning of my cycle. Of course this means I may ovulate before my baby making window opens. We're still trying to avoid August due dates (and due dates within a week of August). That means I'd be cutting it too close ovulating anywhere before CD 25, which is late even for my PCOS standards.

edubluv 3DPO what's with the EWCM? Makes me second guess myself.
11-27-2013 02:30 PM
tifga So I'm freaking out that something is wrong another -OPK today faint line even less then yesterday when I had EWCM. No CM today so now I'm really freaking out that maybe I don't O or that the faint line yesterday was my + and now we've lost our chance to try IUI this month. I need good news at my ultrasound tomorrow or I think I'll just cry. I feel like the Hanukkah gift I got hubby is just pointless if we don't try this month. I think I lost all my positive feels.

Ugg, on another note, I need to BD tonight, tomorrow night, and the next night. Probably should have last night, but didnt even want to talk to my DH let alone be in the same bed with him. He works A LOT, and I understand that, but damn, when you are not working, can I at least be a priority? You know, before your ex's issues, the 3 million texts you get, WOW, and the freaking guys??? I told him I refuse to be the kind of GF who demands or begs him to spend time with me. So, of course on his one night off all month, he stays home, out of guilt. No, that doesnt count. YOU MADE PLANS TO GO WITH THE GUYS....me having to say something doesnt count:( I guess I just need to suck it up and get neked... pfft, :(  Fertility friend gave me cross hairs this am, but I know its not right:( I know I havent O'd yet, its just my screwy temps:( http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/4975ae

 

Ive asked this question on other boards but really didnt get an answer.... anyone deal with Low T, and their DH on the Andro patch? Does Low T affect TTC? Ive tried googling it, but still havent gotten a definite answer. 

 

It is sad that we havent had any BFP's this month:( I know if we dont get the egg this month, we will not be trying until Jan, as my angel son Jacobs b-day is Sept 19th, and I would be scared to death of going into labor accidental that day, it would never be ok:( Hopefully we get it this month tho!!!

I'd like to scream this same question too. It was just so ironic to experience my 45 day cycle of miserable symptoms my first month TTC when I've been at 31 days and light symptoms for years now. Now at CD 9, been temping this cycle and using some natural supplementation, keeping my chin up I guess.

I sense a group funk here right now. Too many losses and no BFP''s as of yet. I am thinking of you all right now and so thankful this little mini-community exists to share our feelings when most IRL folks wouldn't relate to our current journeys. Be kind to yourselves. joy.gif That's me throwing some love around for all of us sans big goofy grin of course.

Sounds like you had it worse than I though.  I've had sinus gunk since Sunday.  But actually made it to Walmart today (sans children of course).  So I must be getting better if I braved that outing and survived.  Hope next cycle straightens out for both of us and we catch good healthy eggs!

 

Oh Lord!  What a mess!  I think someone else said - and I agree -  that since you got +OPK on 11/20, then I'd wait till 2 weeks after that.  You say AF is due the 27th or 30th though....is your LP always this short?  I know you said your dr doesn't think that PCOS is a possibility, but I'm still leary.  Not trying to be Debbie Downer here.  But your app is saying you should O at one time, yet you're getting +OPKs at another time.  Just seems very strange to me.  I would push to at least be tested for it.  I was following this couple on another site.  They had been trying for almost 2 YEARS!  And her cycles were all wonky too.  But she would randomly get +OPKs.  But it turned out her body was gearing up to O occasionally, so she would get the random +OPK.  But she was not actually O'ing, thus no BFP in all that time.  So she went to a fertility specialist who diagnosed her with PCOS and within like 3 months she was pregnant.  She just had to take some medication to make her O.  I hope that's not the case for you.  I just hate the idea of you trying and trying and not ever knowing when you'll O or have a period.  I would push for SOME EXPLANATION!  But hopefully this is your month!:goodvibes:1praying

 

I don't temp chart, but the EWCM for 5 days and then O pain sounds very textbook.  If you BD'd a lot leading up to those pains (and even afterwards), then I think you've done all you could.  Welcome and good luck!

Thanks for your reply! My temp went up today!! I was doing some research and I have found a bunch of other woman who don't have the temp spike until a day or two after o pain.  :)
