    Hello, wow everyone has been so busy!!
    Hi to deb, debbie, Michelle,lilylou and Kirsty...
    Deb you just never know what is around the corner for you, fingers crossed
    Michelle really the same for you, that is a very high level...hmmmm
    Lilylou, glad AF turned up for you, nice to get back on track.
    Kirsty big hugs to you as you pass this huge mile stone...hugs, hugs hugs..



    Well as for me, I had a lap done on the 9th of August... they found endo on my overies, in my uterus, and both my tubes had 3 cysts in each... one tube blocked so seems to think I have only 1 good working one anyway..I also had a hyunia, not sure how that is spelt...so... am very sore, but glad it is over. Will see specialist in 2 weeks to go over stuff!!!
    Hope everyone is having a fab weekend!!

    Hi Michelle,
    Fantastic news on your progesterone! I have copied some prg. levels. I would n't say yours was too high. If you weren't on the clomid it's getting up there but no problem in my opinion. YOu do expect higher than 'normal' levels on clomid. As you would know there is a very broad normal so take a look...
    It shows that the clomid has done its trick for you. That must feel really good. YEAH!!!!!
    Could the spotting be implantation???? I hope so. If not here's to next cycle for us both. I am not expecting my period until Tuesday or Wednesday next week. As I said before I don't think we succeeded this month. But there is always next month!!!

    PROG
    Reference Interval: Male adult: < 2 nmol/L
    Female:
    Follicular phase: < 2 nmol/L
    Luteal phase: 5 - 90 nmol/L
    Post-menopausal: < 2 nmol/L
    Pregnancy:
    1st trimester: 30 - 150 nmol/L.
    2nd trimester: 50 - 460 nmol/L
    3rd trimester: 170 - 800 nmol/L

    Lilylou, so glad that your period has returned and things can get on track. I understand the mixed emotions with this time.

    Kirsty, glad the counselling went well. Men are from Mars women are from venus.... We are very different sometimes. It is important that you feel understood and supported. I understand that your appointment next month will be scaary too. There has been so much to get through.

    Chelle: YOu have been through the mill sweetie. . NO wonder you are feeling sore. I will look forward to hearing what your care provider has to say about your surgery. Many women conceive with one tube. It's gonna be okay.

    Well, I am about to attack a very large basket of ironing. Very exciting!!!!

    Hi again Michelle,
    I just went into ttcaml to see if I could 'see' you. I am so so so sorry that your period arrived. I was thinking with such a good level that you may have conceived.
    :hugs: The good thing is that you had a really good ovulation and this next cycle is yours okay?!!!
    I am thinking of you

    Thanks Deb - the level was actually 91.5 and I was kind of hoping that it may have been an indication of conception but I guess it was not meant to be. On the bright side, I DO ovulate and I DID ovulate on 100mg so that's a small woo hoo. Fingers crossed for next cycle.

    I am overweight and I have started back at the gym which is what I was doing when I last conceived. I didn't lose any weight going to the gym but my borderline insulin resistance was probably brought into line. I am considering arranging an appointment with an endocrine specialist to see if I am insulin resistant due to my weight or due to something else. It is just so frustrating not to have an answer as to why it isn't happening.

    Once again - thank you. Your support means a lot.

    P.S. How's your Dad??

    Hi everyone, sorry to break into your thread. I just wanted to say 'hi' to Lilylou, I'm so glad af arrived for you! I know I'm looking forward to it (!), expecting it around this thursday. I think it's a really good idea to realx about ttc, I'm sure it will happen for you soon. I really hope you're doing okay sweetie.

    Aw Sezjm, thank you, your so sweet
    You will always be a very special BB to me, infact, if it wasn't for you, I probably wouldn't be posting now. After I m/c, I didn't want to get on here anymore, I certainly didnt' want to announce that I had a m/c, until I read your thread and what you were going through, I felt I had to reply, before I knew it I was typing away. So glad I did.We shared that journey together, our next will be such a better one, bb in the pregnancy thread
    AF arrived Friday, my god has it arrived. Actually quite early as it's only 4 weeks tomorrow but i'm not complaining. I'm so use to having light af's that only last a couple of days, this has been full on since Friday, although I just went to toilet and it seems to have slowed up. Cross my fingers this Thursday is your day. Can your believe how excited we are about getting for AF, this is a first. Normally I curse it.
    My moods are all over the place, today I'm feeling good, confident, whatever happens, happens and all the rest, tomorrow, well who knows. But all is good. Let me know when af arrives.
    bye

    Michelle,
    I think it would be a good idea to see and endocrinologist - if for nothing else you can put it to rest, iykwim?
    It will happen sweetie. Your progesterone was fabulous, this cycle that egg maybe wasn't quite right or the sperm weren't. Or, the planets or whatever. It will happen. This journey is a tough one. One day we will all look back and it won't seem quite as tortuous as now.
    Have a good day and we'll talk again soon I hope....

    Oooh Michelle, sorry 'it' turned up!!! BUT on the gr8 side, yes you did ovulate, matching the 2 little devils together must have crossed paths, as Im sure happens alot for us all!!!IT will happen and will very soon...
    Hey Deb, Im doing ok, the more the bruises come out the better I feel.My... I certainly cant blame babies for the mess they made round my belly button... haha...Still crossing fingers for you, cos when we feel like maybe we didnt, then that might be the one that you did!!
    Im looking forward to getting AF and seeing specialist and then I can start making plans... cant wait.
    Lilylou it is so normal to feel the way you described. Everyday is different and as long as you allow yourself to go with the mood your feeling then it will all be ok....
    Take care one and all

    Lilylou, I really feel like I shared my journey with you. It helped me so much to know that I was most certainly not the only person going through a traumatic time. I'm really pleased that I helped you too. I hope you are finding alot of support on BB, I know I am. I can't wait for us to be BB together, that will be special.

    I'm so glad af arrived for you (that sounds so strange, doesn't, it?!). My d&c was 5 weeks ago on Wednesday, but I'm pretty sure I am 11 DPO, so expecting af around Thursday. The cycle I fell pg, I didn't O until cd 26 so I think my cycles are just getting back to normal after being on BCP for 9 years. At least this one will be shorter (I hope)!

    Please let me know how you are going, it's not easy is it? Let me know if you ever need anything. I will be sure to let you know when af arrives!!!!

    Well, I thought I would come in here and tell you all that I got a feint positive hpt last Sunday morning. I tested again on Monday and it was darker and Tuesday it was darker again. So, I am pregnant!

    I saw my ob yesterday and we will do hcg/prog levels on Friday and a repeat on Monday to see what is happening. If they look good then woo hoo!!!! Of course I am nervous - I have been down this road 4 times before with a not so great outcome. However, I am chosing to embrace this pregnancy and believe that this little one is going to grow big and strong and be born hollering!

    I am continuing to have acupuncture and taking my chinese herbal pregnancy support tea(Bushells it aint!!!). I am slowing down. Reflecting on this growing baby and praying that this pregnancy will result in a baby to take home and love.

    You have all supported and nurtured me and I feel such a connection and friendship with you all. You will all be doing the same soon I am sure.

    I will let you know on Tuesday the results of my hcg monitoring. Say a little prayer and send some positive thought our way. All the 'good' energy is helpful, I just know.

    I am feeling a bit ordinary, and that is a 'nice' feeling (iykwim!!!)

    Thankyou gorgeous women again.
