Well I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up high cause now I'm thinking it took even longer for the trigger shot to leave my body. I don't really see but a barely there if anything line this morning and a BFN on an FRER. My temp went up so I'm going to see what happens in the next few days with my temps. Since I have started Fertility medications, they have made my cycle longer. My LP length is actually normal now since last month. So yeah for that!
Christina, I found the same thing. Clomid made my ovulatory phase about 2 days longer, and the progesterone makes my luteal phase last until I stop taking it (2 wks past ovulation) + a day or two once I stop. My once 25 day cycle is now 28-30 days every month. I guess that's a good thing. LOL
I'm now 8 DPO and starting to count the days on my fingers every morning because I hope I've counted wrong and I'm closer than I think!
I'm debating on whether I want to continue temping this cycle - my temps went up appropriately and then went wonky low over the weekend. I slept WAY past my normal wake up time, but then on Monday and Tuesday it was still low. I didn't take it this morning because I tossed and turned all night, and later found out from my husband that I've been snoring a lot lately. I think my allergies are kicking up a notch and I'm probably mouth breathing off and on all night - which totally explains the temps.
It was a relief to find a reason for the ridiculous temps, but frustrating as well. I've gotten to the point that every morning I was dreaming that I was taking my temp before I actually woke up and did. Sometimes I dreamed it multiple times...it was insane.
Oh, so sorry for the frustration!! That stinks. Your chart looks great though, so I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the next few days for you!
Anyone else testing soon?? I need some testing excitement!! I will test on Sunday so only 3 more days! :woohoo: (Yeah I know my little countdown ticker is wrong. I don't like the way they set up their date calculator :rolleyes:)
Well, as for testing excitement, wish I could give you some but I think I'm holding out for a few more days. I'll see what my temps bring. 11 dpo today but not feeling too hopeful the past few days. I guess I'll really know soon enough!
Christina (hopin)~ Sorry about the confusion but I really hope you get a nice pretty line tomorrow!
Hi ladies, didn't realize but that it's been a few days since I poked my head here last!
Anyways, I went to my gyn appt, I have a ton of blood tests to do now for next cycle: Day 3 TSH/FSH, Day 19 progesterone. Also the HSG test. My OB (she also used to be my OB when pg with DD) said that b/c my cycles have been consistent, she thinks all the tests will come back normal, and that it's just going to take longer for me to get pg just b/c of my age (old eggs). When I mentioned the 2 chem pgs, she said that it was nature's way to ensure it's a healthy baby. Well I hope next time (or even this time?), she makes sure to produce a HEALTHY EGG for me!!!
In addition to my tests, there is a semen analysis for DH. I asked my OB what if he doesn't go along with this (He is an only child and thinks it's ok to have just Evie. I beg to differ, of course). She said I can still do all my tests, but of course if we ever decide to go the fertility clinic route, he will have to do it before we can proceed. But it turns out he doesn't mind: "Does that mean there's pr0n?" he asked. :rolleyes:
Um....so I promised myself when I had my chem pg that I would not test until I was at least 5 wks? Yeah, right!! I couldn't help but test yesterday, BFN. Only CD22 though and not even FMU, guessing at most I would be 10DPO, so still could be early. Likely early even, I don't even think I O'd CD12 like I did last cycle. I might continue to test out of curiosity, but I probably won't do it consistently. Unless AF is late. Very late.
Sophia- That's good news! And sooo funny about your husbands reply.. Such a typical man repsonse!!!
Kevin is also "fine with just one" so I always feel if we didn't just "happen" to get pregnant, he would never seek out help, or try, or really be upset if we didn't have another.
Maybe your husband secretly deep down wants another, but just kind of plays it off to you that one is enough..??
GOOD thing that having babies is much more in our hands then men, otherwise I'm sure there would be waaay less children/people in this world!!!
AFM... I'm kinda bummed that I'm not ttc until the next cycle.. because that makes me feel like I'm in... an... 8ww????? I wouldn't O til mid may, so text the end of may/beg of junE?! :(:( Hopefully the time will just FLYYY BY!!!!!! Although I doubt it since I'll be in school unti June
On the bright side.... I just planted some flowers, now if only the rain would go away...
AHHHH I hate my body today. I started spotting earlier today. So, I called the RE nurse and told her that I have started spotting but my temps haven't dropped and I'm not having cramps. She wants me to come in tomorrow for a pregnancy blood test because some ladies spot when they are preggo. I seriously doubt I'm pregnant. I'm not even going to waste another HPT tomorrow morning. I guess we will see if any levels come back and then go from there. I am guessing try another IUI for this cycle.
Fingers crossed for you Christina. Let us know what happens.
temps are high... im cramping the same way i did with my first baby... and i had a very faint line on my HPT this am. i certainly FEEEEEL pregnant!! you can go check out my test on the DYSAL board i need to retest!!
YAY CAROLYN.. Rushing over to check the line pic!!!
well the blood test came back NEG. I thought so after I finally got a huge temp drop this morning. Now I just wish my period would kick in so I can start my injectables for another IUI. I am not sure about moving to another month since they are speeding up my cycles for me. I think I will have another shot for dec but I will probably stalk jan 2012 boards too. I love look at the belly pics of last months.
I got the brown tinged CM today, so I think AF is on her way. Some PMS symptoms too. Good luck ladies! I'm off to Jan 2012.
I'm still not really sure I belong here or if I'm still waiting to O. OPKs are frustrating! How do you guys do them all the time?! I've had several that have been dark but not positive but the one the other day was darker than the control but then when it dried, only the very edge had color (and is darker than the control). Since then, I have gotten very, very light lines again
Christina and Sophia - so sorry, and hugs to both of you. Christina I hope you do get to stay in December with your next cycle!
Ugh... two week wait! You girls are almost done with yours. I'm glad I'm headed to Calgary next week to keep me distracted from the waiting!
I'm testing when I wake up in the morning (actually it will be closer to the afternoon by the time I get up lol). I'll be 9DPO so kind of early, but still exciting!
Ugh, I'm spotting (maybe even light flow). It's only 3 weeks after the m/c so I shouldn't be starting my period yet
Well....I think I'm going to go lurk/hang out in Jan. 2012 board. My spotting has gotten heavier so I expect to get AF soon even though I'm only 6 dpo:confused:. I guess my body is not back to normal after the m/c I just had. Good luck to all of you! I hope to see more BFPs soon!!
I'm in the same boat, Jina. I put in a pad and the bleeding is showing on it now, so CD1 for me. that cycle was only 19 days but since it was right after a m/c/ chemical pregnancy, I probably just didn't O
12 dpo and negative this morning. Not looking good for this cycle. Final test on Tuesday
Pam, sorry you're having a wonky cycle too:confused:. I hope our bodies return to normal asap and we get out BFPs soon!
Carole, sorry about the BFN. Fingers and toes crossed for Tuesday!!
So I tested this morning and got a BFN. But I think I ovulated late in the day (which would mean I'm not really 9DPO until like 7pm this evening). So when I tested I was only 8.5 DPO lol.
Yes I can rationalize those BFN away any day!! lol
Testing again tomorrow!
It's hard to tell how many dpo I really am my chart is so confusing. Yesterday I was 8dpo and when I recorded todays temp fertility friend changed everything and now says I am 13dpo. Thinking about testing but not really sure!
Hi Girls! Guess I am here now!! I only have 1 test so I will be waiting until the 17th to test if I can hold out that long! Or I may just have to make a little trip to the dollar tree for a couple tests to hold me over
i'm here, i'm here! i actually O'd this month, and we DTD at the right time, so i'm eager to test, but just 6dpo right now. i'll probably test friday (10 dpo) and then again on sunday (12dpo). with DS1 i got my BFP at 12dpo, so we'll see... my due date would be christmas day!!!
Hi everyone, Im here. I took a trigger shot on friday and the nurse said I should O 12-36 hours later. Im not feeling to excited because we were doing SMEP but ended up doing 4 days in a row so I dont know. There is a lot of BFP rolling in so baby dust to everyone
Guess I will throw in my name for this group --- not sure exactly when I Oed but I think I did on my own the same day I triggered (Mar 31) or the next day at latest. BD only on Mar 31st so really hoping that we have luck and an eggie or two were caught.
Going to be a long 2WW - hoping and praying for a BFP!
Lots of baby dust to all you who are also waiting that are on this board!
Carole, sorry about the BFN. tacie, I never saw if your RE agreed with you or basically let you go on your on. I'm on CD3 and started injectables today. I have an ultrasound and bloodwork to see if my eggs are growing. I'm guessing if everything goes well and the eggs are juicy, we will be doing #2 IUI.
Good luck and baby dust to all!
I'm "bringing up the rear" of December. I finally got my + opk last night and again this morning. We are doing SMEP so we BD yesterday, and plan to tonight. If my temp is up tomorrow I may take a break but we will see if the mood strikes. I'll probably test the weekend of the 16th/17th of April.
I hope to see TONS more BFPs before I get mine!
Yay at least I wont be the only one due at the end of the month if we caught the egg!! So glad I will have some of you with me Im keeping each and every one of you in my thoughts and prayers that we all get BFP's!! I would be due on christmas day as well!!
Got my positive OPK yesterday so here I am! Hope I (and everyone else here) get to stay this time
How many + Opks has anyone gotten in a row? Usually I only get 1 but I am on my third day of + OPK. Anyways, I am thinking I will O today...I might try to BD tonight but I think I have worn DH out with the SMEP and he has class. We'll see if I can talk my way into it
Sorry to hear that you're starting again -- hopefully follies will be good n' juicy this time round for you!
My RE decided to allow me to do half a trigger but I'm not sure if it was needed because I think the same day I did the injection I released on my own. Don't know for sure and not able to test due to the drugs being put in before getting a chance to POAS. So it's a waiting game now....no IUI this past time - just BD - DH was not very cooperative, said he was not in the mood, had a spat the day before trigger injection but then agreed to DTD the day of the trigger and that was it. I REALLY hope that something caught.
yeah hubby and I had a row over the weekend. It ended up with me being upset about not being able to have a child without all this medical workup instead of the natural way. We are going to keep trying at least while he's here. Our lovelife has been lack luster lately because of all of this. I guess it just came to a head this weekend. But he supports me no matter what, even if we don't have kids, adopt or finally get pregnant. Men don't understand how hard it is on us. Esp when we have all these drugs in our system. To actually feel pregnant because of a trigger shot AND not be pregnant is rough.
Well I keep getting BFNs. AF has not come yet at least. I'm not using FRERs, just internet cheapies. So I'm HOPING that's why I haven't gotten a BFP yet. But it's not looking good for me!
I don't think they truly understand what it is like - they think they may have an idea but that's about it. I wish they could be the ones doing injections of something while we do them, just so they get part of it. I wish you all the luck in the world that it works this round for you!
Tacie and hoping for 1 what kind of injectables did you use. I used ovidrel for trigger and menapur. I O on my own but RE said it will give me a better egg and help with my LPD. Im new to all this and dont know what to expect. I was going to try the IUI my next cycle if this one isnt a BFP.
I am going to use Ovidrel for the first time for a trigger shot with clomid and iui, my re said that he likes ovidrel the best works with most women.
reneakelly, I use Gonal-F injectables with Hcg trigger shot before the IUI. I don't really ovulate on my own, only have a working left tube. That little booger barely puts out two eggs in a year. Odd though I get regular periods. That's why I always thought I ovulated every month because I was so reg. But after temping for almost a year now and using OPKs I decided something was wrong, turned out I was right. I tried clomid 100mg for one month. Didn't catch the egg if I really did ovulate but hated the side effects. I do have some side effects with gonal but nothing as bad as clomid. I go in 6am to see if my eggs are growing and do blood work. The RE nurse will call later in the day and give me the info about the IUI.
I am on Puregon injections and hCG to trigger
I have REALLY bad PCOS and I don't O on my own - my ovaries have another year left in them before they have to remove them they figure ... or else they are going to burst
I was having IUIs with Clomid last year, year before it was Clomid and BD.
This time we did injections and BD - the cycle prior was cancelled as follies were not responding.
G/L at your appt tomorrow! I hope those follies are growing and things are moving forward successfully!
All this just makes me think kmy RE is being to aggressive. Im scared of having multiples. Because that would mean a lot of time off work. I told my husband he was getting only one, I already have 4. On a good note my Hpt is very light so I was going to test on wed that would make me 10dpo. Good luck and fingers crossed for all of us.
I HATE WAITING!! I wish there was a pregnancy test that would tell you the next darn day!!
Christina (hopin)~ Did your doctor happen to tell you why your charts showed O but you actually didn't? I am dying to know. I have tried researching the issue but I have never found anything. I ask only because it scares me that I 'assume' my charts shows O but after so many months with good timing...yeah, you know the drill. Anyway, I'd love to know if he told you why you could be so regular and have charts that showed O but not actually O.
Who's testing soon? I want to see some BFPs!
I am pretty sure I ovulated yesterday. Temp rise today to confirm just waiting on CH now. EDD is Dec 29th if this is it. Crossing my fingers!!!!
Well ladies...I think I'm out. I tested again today and BFN. Last pregnancy, I got a BFP at 11 dpo so I should have gotten a positive test today.
I am going to move on to Jan BB. Good luck to all of you!!
Dont count yourself out just yet! Every pregnancy is different!! You might get your + in a couple days! I didnt get a positive with Erykah until I was 13dpo!
Jina- I second this. Sometimes you can implant early and late. You don't know when you implanted so if you had a late implantation your HCG levels aren't high enough yet. With Nicholas I implanted at 5dpo I think due to my chart and I got a very faint BFP at 11dpo. If you implanted a little later, it is very possible your HCG isn't high enough.
Jina I second that too. With one of my pregnancy I got a very visiable line and beta 49 at 8dpo. So after that Inthought all pregnancy would be the same but Igot faintnlines at 10 and 12dpo, so it aint over until AF show, and sometimes even then it still aint over.
[SIZE=5]I second this![/SIZE]
