    Hey all!

    maz - I'll have to keep you in mind (should I be lucky enough!!) for next time!

    Satya - I'd get a 2nd opinion. Took me to get a 2nd one to get diagnosed with PCOS. Everyone kept focusing on the Endo. Hence, I've now been with my Gyno (who is also my FS, and had hoped would be my Ob but he retired a year before DS was born!) for about 10 years now! Pity you are Outer SE...my FS is Outer Eastern...would recommend him to you in a heartbeat!

    Sharon - I'm only 2 days ahead of you, similar symptoms here but OPK's are still giving me negatives. I'm usually a 35 day cycle, so I would expect around CD 18 here (if I O at all...positive thinking!!). Hope Jordan's head is a little better today!

    Heybacko - I know hcg can stay in your system for a while, it could be that. Definately get a BT done so you at least know for sure what's going on. Sooo annoying when you are in limbo Getting closer to mid cycle, so hopefully O soon. Finally have my follow up appointment with FS tomorrow, so will let you know how it goes!

    BekZ - glad to hear you are still doing well!! Look after that precious bub!



    Hi to everyone else!

    Will be back tomorrow to let you know what FS has to say!!

    Congrats Sarah - that is great news!!
    I am in the same boat as you - petrified something will go wrong with this pg also. Hoping this bub is sticky sticky sticky.
    I am having an ultrasound at 8 wks hoping for some peace of mind. My Angel made it to 11w 6d though so I will still be on tender hooks until well past the 12 wk mark. All you can do is be postive though - no point being any other way. All the best to you!!
    All the best to all the other ladies as well - I hope you all find yourself in this situation really soon!!

    I have been away for work for the last week and you girls like to talk alot - so it has taken ages for me to catch up.

    Congratulations to mummyto1, tonners and sarah - such wonderful news! Also congratulations to Bekz on how well you are going.

    Not much happening here, just waiting and waiting.

    I will try and keep on top of these posts over the next few days so I don't get left behind again :P

    Cheers

    Congratulations Sarah

    Alex, I got a faint positive the day before AF came last cycle - either it was a faulty test or a chemical pg. I also got positives about a week after the D & C. AF came 4 weeks after the D & C, but I didn't have any problems and only bled for a day or two, so think my body bounced back quickly as it wasn't physically too traumatic. I tok Vitex too which I think helped. Hopefully a BT will give you some answers.

    Hi everyone else.

    FF has moved my O day forward to CD 16, so I feel like it's Ground hog Day, I am still 3 dpo. Not sure if FF is right, time will tell I guess.

    Hi Ladies,

    Huge congrats Sarah, sending you loads of sticky vibes! I can't remember who said it, but just try and enjoy every second of this pregnancy, no matter what happens you have new life growing inside of you, cherish and enjoy it! I'm sure our bodies can feed off the positivity.

    Sally - thanks for taking a look at my chart! I really am not sure what is going on. I'm pretty sure that I must have O'd between day 19 and 21 but I still have no coverline. My cycle varies from 30-37 days so it should be around then. I actually have a 16day luteal phase. We dtd every 2nd day from day 12 onwards, so hopefully we caught the eggie!

    Satya - Get a new GP, it's so important to keep pushing for answers and if you dont feel you are getting them from your current GP, move on. Life is far to short to put up with delays like that. I hope things get sorted for you asap.

    Sharon - good luck with the BD'ing, hope you catch the egg!

    Alex - Hope you cycle sorts itself out! I've heard that it's quite normal to get + HPT's for quite a few weeks after D&C so I don't think it would be anything to worry about, probably best to get more blood tests done though, I know my GP was super careful to monitor my levels after the misscarriage until they were virtually nothing. She knew I wanted to try again asap, and I guess wanted to make sure I did not get confused!

    Hi to everyone else, hope we start seeing more BFP's really soon!

    love

    Heybacko I don't think it was unreasonable of you to think that this cycle would be the same as other post baby/d&c cycles.
    BekZ nice to see you, for you, keep thinking positive thoughts.
    nikilove hope you get your bfp this cycle.
    *las* my O day has usually been around CD 21 but after D&C it seems to be coming a little earlier, or at least all my symptoms are starting earlier. Good luck with FS
    missbelinda77 i hear you on the waiting, it sucks big time.
    SallyJ I hated that movie (groundhog day) hope your O day doesn't get moved again, and as long as you have kept up your BD hopefully you will still have caught your eggie.
    Leyla hope you get your bfp this cycle for you.

    As for me, my cm has turned watery, I did another OPK today and it was fainter than yesterday and since the day before I tested at 2.30 and yesterday I tested at 4.30, so maybe yesterday was my +ve but I missed the main surge or it still hasn't happened yet. Only time will tell i guess.

    When I thought I was pregnant last month and came on this month I had mixed feelings. I am still wondering why I had a miscarriage it just hurt so bad and I am ttc but I am not charting just going with the flow. I hope it happens before my birthday in June but it will be nice to happen before Mothers day Im waiting I suppose to come on May 5 Im keeping my fingers crossed. The way I been feeling is weird using it a lot, cramping in the legs, breast hurting off and on,cramping in my stomach and a clear watery discharge. I wish everyone Luck on ttc sending lots of baby dust!!!!!!!!

    Leyla, your chart looks like mine did last month; all over the place. I was temping orally last month and have decided to go downstairs this month. So far my temps have been consistent.... but we are only on CD 10 so will wait and see.

    Hello to everyone else this week.

    nikilove - your post brought a tear to my eye - I am feeling very emotional lately. I hope you get your wish before your b'day too - & this cycle would be even better. Same goes for all you other lovely ladies - why any of us had to go through a m/c I don't know
    but we will love our bubs all the more for the effort it took to get them. Hoe you are all having a wonderful day!

    Hi everyone,

    Maz - maybe you could check the help pages or the tutorial on FF to learn about cm. I'm certainly no expert I've just started charting and I'm finding it hard to determine the difference particularly the days following bding.


    :doctor:

    Sorry for no other personals and I think this might turn into a bit of a vent.

    Well I'm on CD11 now and am stressing majorly as my DF is off from work sick. I am worried about him but I'm also concerned about missing our chance of conception this month. I know how insensitive that sounds but I can't help it. He's sick as with flu like symptoms and has been this way for two days. I even had to leave work today to come home and look after him and get him to the doctor. I'm annoyed about it because I feel like it's kinda self inflicted as he smoked way too much on the weekend (doesn't usually but he tends to smoke more around smoker friends) and now he has an infected throat. I've cut out so many things in order to get pg and he's carrying on like normal. He is now saying he will give up smoking again and eat healthier in an attempt to not get so sick (I think this is his third bout of flu so far this year, each time it's knocked him down like a ton of bricks).

    I've had trouble charting my temps due to a heater being left on overnight one night (which resulted in me waking up roasting with a temp of 36.4 followed by one 5 minutes later of 36.1 after throwing the covers off & turning the heater off) and last night he was up and down all night and so was I. I took my temp at 4am (I didn't realise it was that early until after I took it) and it was 36.1 then when I took it at 7am (when I normally do) it was 36.4. I was of course snuggled up to a burning hot body prior to taking this temp so I have no clue what temp to use. I had one day of partial ferning, then a day of full ferning (yesterday) then partial ferning today so I'm thinking that I've either just O'd or am about to.

    Does anyone know what it means on FF when you get a white dot in the temping chart area (as against the black ones)? I got that today and I tried to find what it meant and didn't have any luck. I've also got the green light so I'm pretty sure I must be quite fertile right now. Oh well, I guess it doesn't matter unless he suddenly comes good & the bd'ing resumes. Wish me luck.

    p.s. Apologies again for the long vent.

    Good afternoon!

    Bit of a me post today, saw my FS for follow up appointment!

    Appointment went well, we chatted about how I was feeling, he was impressed my cycle was only 38 days, he thought it would be longer! We talked about what sort of cycle to do this time. He said he's been having some great success with Clomid/FET's and suggested we give that a try, given that I've had success with Clomid before (I conceived DS with our very last Clomid cycle), plus it gives him more control over my cycle, but allows my body to work naturally if we achieve another pregnancy, and without all the extra cost of Progynova and the progesterone pessaries. I did a natural FET last year and it was disasterous, so he thinks with the aid of Clomid, u/s every 2nd day and BT's (and a Trigger if needed), we should do ok, and not have to worry about fiddling with levels of progesterone pessaries. DH and I are ok with this, but I have to now wait for my GI specialist to give me the OK to take Clomid, because there are certain medications I can't take because of the Pancreas/liver issues. I can't even take Panadeine Forte or Codeine without it bringing on a mild attack. I did take Progynova without issue, so I'm hoping low dose (50mg) of Clomid will be ok, especially since it's only for 5 days...Progynova I had been taking for weeks!

    Given GI man is ok, we can start this month (when AF turns up!). I'm hoping this will be ok. We thought we'd have to put it off until July (for financial reasons), this now makes it feasible to try again this month as we don't have the extra cost of the hormones.

    Sorry again for the me post, will catch up with personals later

    Hi guys,

    Sarah - congrats! Hoping for a sticky one for you!!

    mummyto1 - I hope you are going well.

    las - great news from your FS appointment! I am so glad to hear that you can get to it this cycle rather than having to wait. You guys must be stoked to get that news. I hope your GI doctor clears it so you can get started asap!

    Bekz - glad things are going well!

    satya -so sorry to hear about your DP. I can totally understand you feeling the way you do, especially as his illness may be self-inflicted! The white dot on your chart is because for some reason your temp is not reliable this time (in your case, it sounds like it is because you woke up at a different time). It took me ages to figure that out when FF did it to me! I hope you still manage to get some BDing in! Even if you only BD on O day, you are still in with a chance, so maybe he will be feeling better soon. I hope so!

    I am now 10DPO and just waiting waiting.... I can't do an HPT because of the injections I am on and I am scheduled for a BT in a week, so will find out then if I am pg or not. I am having symptoms (the usual - my bbs are killing me), but the drugs I am on can cause pg symptoms, so I am trying not to read too much into it. The thing is, I have been on the drugs for a week and a half, and wasn't having these particular symptoms until the last couple of days. I am not sure if that is because over time the drugs have built up to cause symptoms, or if they are true pg symptoms. I know that the drugs are supposed to have a short half life, which is why I need injections every three days, and I am due for one tonight, so you would think the symptoms would start to ease now just before the next shot is due, but they are worse today than they have been. Who knows, maybe I am reading too much into it. My last injection hurt soooo bad! I think he did something wrong, and I am dreading it tonight. You should see the mark on my tummy! And I am running out of places that haven't been jabbed yet!

    Hi to everyone else.

    Hi everyone

    Not much to report here - 4dpo, had a temp spike today to 37.

    Bun, hopefully all the injections will be worthwhile.

    Satya, hear you on the frustration, hopefully DF comes good.

    Las, glad your appt went well.

    Maz, white cm sounds like creamy. It can be stretchy but not as stretchy as EWCM. Creamy means you are not really fertile, but could be...check out the FF tutorial.

    maz like sally says, the white cm sounds like it is creamy cm and is what you usually get before you get the watery and/or eggwhite cm.
    satya it would definitely suck big time with your DF being sick, but even more so because it is self inflicted, I think if it was me I would still be getting him to perform, since it is all his own fault, easier said than done though, I know. Hopefully he picks up enough to get some bd'ing in before O. Also you usually get a white dot on your chart if your temp is taken more than 30 mins either side of your normal temp time or if you have ticked the "sleep deprived" checkbox.
    *las* I really hope that your next cycle goes well for you and you end up with a bfp it would be really frustrating wanting to TTC but not being able to afford the treatment you need. for you.
    Bun I have absolutely everything crossed for you, I do uncross them on the occaisions I need to though, but that is usually just briefly the shots sound like a real pain (literally) I hope that you get your bfp in a week, it must be so hard not reading into any of the symptoms you are having but like you said you would expect the symptoms to decrease at the end of each 3 day cycle, not get worse. good luck.
    SallyJ nice temp jump you have there, lets hope it stays nice and high.

    had a pretty big temp drop this morning, so I feel pretty confident that O is today or tomorrow, didn't get a bd in tonight, dh played golf and was too buggered, but he has been warned to conserve his energy for tomorrow night, and more than likely Friday night (but haven't told him about that one yet, i'll only notify him one bd at a time LOL). Still no +ve OPK though so feeling a little annoyed with them atm
