Waiting to O

Well it looks like hello April, I started spotting today.

Just another month of TTC I guess.

Things are all screwy, temp is up and no sign of ever having spotting this morning, but I have had af start on an up temp before so not getting too excited.

Oh wow! Wendy I hope AF stays away and you get your BFP!! Fingers crossed for you!

AFM: I'm here.. Round 2 of injectibles.. This round has already been looking up! Its cheaper, and easier.. Instead of mixing the Bravelle (FSH) - I have it already mixed in a pen.. The doc switched me to Follistim.. I pray this round is it!

Good luck Patrice. Spotting again yesterday, temp still above cover line, 2 year old convinced there is a pink baby in my belly and in bed by 8-9pm every night and 9pm is pushing it. I have no freaking idea and am ready to chuck in the towel. All my paper work for the fertility clinic arrived yesterday so I will get that filled in and sent back ready for my appointment next month. I asked what the cancellation policy was if i did get pregnant before the appt and they said that does happen a fair bit and just to call.

Hello cycle 16ish. Anyone else going to come hang out with me in April. Last month of trying before we see the fertility specialist. Bet a bfp holds out just long enough for me to spend huge amounts of money on testing and appointments.

Ok I have decided one last hurrah I'm going all out and just ordered a conception tea blend so I hope I get it soon, I probably won't get it until like CD 7 so hopefully it will still help. Anyone know any other supplements I can try, I have heard of royal jelly but it advises against it on the container if you have asthma which I do. I am also back on EPO as I read that it can help as well.

I am also doing EPO and RJ this month (I have been on this for several months though) in additional to Prenatal, extra folic, and baby aspirin. I have pink tinged TP so pretty sure I'm moving on. Not thrilled about prospect of summer baby in Florida, so I think I'm going to focus on getting skinny for a few months. If it happens, it happens...in the meantime! DH is on Saw Palmetto, Bee Pollen & a multivitamin.

I'm moving into a winter baby. Hopefully we both get bfp's with sticky babies soon. AF came full force overnight.

Sorry the witch showed up! I pray you get your BFP before seeing the specialist, that would be awesome!

I went in for ultrasound this morning, I swear I have the most stubborn follicles, none over 9mm.. my lining is nice though, at 8mm. They'll probably up my dosage.. Waiting on them to call..

Have you tested at all Becky? Just in case.

No. I suppose I could but my temps are bottoming out again and there is no way they would be this low if I was pregnant. This is the main reason I chart. I started even before TTC because I had no clue and would be freaked out all the time by a late AF. Just imagine this kind of cycle while 20 in college! BC at least made it closer but I would still test before starting a new pack occasionally and have AF show up a few days later. My body may be a little screwy but at least I do O eventually.

Yeah that would be hard. I couldn't imagine such long cycles, whatever is up with my screwy body and not getting pregnant I have always had regular cycles and always O around CD 15 (apart from one screwy cycle in May) .

This is the 2nd month in a row for me where period started and then stopped....annoying. Just means I have to wait even longer for O to come lol

Took your suggestion Wendy and tested today just to check but was BFN. I have EWCM and temp is staying low so hopefully soon. Two days then I will officially join you here.

I hate to say welcome, but at least I won't be sitting here talking to myself Smile It's very quiet this month, I think I will have a mid month edd and it's pretty much me over here.

I think if Mel didn't O before she left she will be joining April too. I really hope this is your month and you can just cancel that appointment with the specialist!

Good luck Wendy! I'm lurking. We're no longer trying but we aren't actually preventing either so I just torture myself with wishful thinking.

We are in the same spot Jenny, well we know hubby has good sperm and enough of it. We will find out what the issue is next month (or early September by the time we get all the testing and make another appt.) After this months af I think last month was another chem pregnancy, i didn't test so can't confirm but wow that was heavy and I have only ever had such heavy af's with massive clots after chem pregnancies.

Hi All!

I'm moving over here since I haven't O'd yet and that would put me with an EDD in April. Going to start temping tomorrow since we've been away the entire weekend and forgot my thermometer! oops! Haven't seen any CM until today though so I'm 100% sure I haven't O'd yet.

Glad you're here too Mel. Hoping it happens soon for us all. The faces here are too familiar. I know most of us have been trying around or even over a year. Sure would be nice if we all got stuck in April Smile

So this may be a dumb question but im trying to pinpoint ovulation better. Do you count day one as the day you see anything or you count that as spotting? My first day is usually just brown and very light I don't need to use anything but by night time it starts to turn dark red. So would this be spotting or CD1

Hi again Jenny. I don't count spotting. I count the first day of real flow as CD1. I think if you put it in FF as spotting thats what they do too.

So i guess this is day two of spotting, and its almost stopped totally with is going on?

I agree with Becky. CD1 is the first day with actual flow, not just spotting. Have you taken another pregnancy test?

This happened to me the last 2 cycles. Around 15DPO I spot so bad to put in a diva cup, the next day there's nothing whatsoever, day after that nothing and the following day AF begins. I Googled it and most signs pointed to hormonal issues...

Seems to me like that is probably a hormone issue but I don't have any experience or knowledge to back that up. Might be worth discussing with your doctor if it happens every month.

I think I'm in April now. Temp did go up some today but I was up 30 min before to take care of DD so had to discard the temp. I'm getting sick of waiting to O.

I didn't test again, and actually it's turning red now so I guess it was just two days of spotting before af came full on. I guess tomorrow will be cd1 I actually have to make my appointment to go in for my annual visit. I will ask my dr about it, it doesn't happen every month just frustrated to still be here over a year later.

i just ordered some fertilaid for women from fair haven I hope it helps

I'm just waiting on my fertility tea to arrive here Jenny, I'm hoping it works, though it better arrive soon or else I will O before I use it. Time is flying this month, I was surprised to be like CD 6 already. I have a super busy month with work so hopefully it will fly the whole way along, unfortunately super busy is also meaning super stressful

Temp went up like i would expect after O but I have EWCM today. FF hasn't added cross hairs yet so I guess more wait and see for me.

*sigh* I'm frustrated for you Becky!!! If you are pregnant this time you're going to have to tell that baby that they were "difficult" even before they were conceived! LOL!

I have crosshairs today! Back on Sunday! I hope they stay this time but I have been up a lot with DD the last few days. If they are right I would be a board straddler with EDD of March 30th. Smile

Yayyy for O'ing Becky!

Hello to the rest of the ladies who came aboard! It would be nice if we all got to stay! It does get frustrating jumping from birth board to birth board.

Well I'm having crazy left O pains.. That's where my big follicle is @ 18.7mm.. Last month with the injectables I didn't O until CD 27, that was the longest "real" cycle ever.. But my doc switched my meds and now I'm O'ing today or tomorrow (CD 12-13)!! Yahoo Fingers crossed for us all and baby dust!!

Yay Patrice, Fingers crossed for a BFP. I would send baby dust, but I am kinds hoping to be selfish and keep it all for myself. Still waiting for my tea to arrive, sooooo slow, it was sent Monday, it;s now Thursday. I am guessing maybe it didn't go out until Tuesday's post though the email said dispatched. Hopefully today because tomorrow is a public holiday here for our show.

I need to find my book and read up on charting again so I don't have to rely so heavily on FF. it moved my cross hairs to Monday today. That makes BFP less likely since last time we DTD was late Saturday.

Did you get your tea Wendy?

Nope so Monday it is, I guess it's going to be a bit useless because I o later that week. If we didn't have the holiday today it would have been here today.

Becky - try throwing out the temp on June 24th. I think it's messing up your chart.
