I had the lightest, strangest AF in the history of all of my AF. Very strange. But, glad it's over and I can move into the waiting to O category!

I have no idea if or when I'll O next, once again body seems primed for it but nothing but faint line on the opks (shhhh don't tell DH!) GOing to order some more HPTs cause I've been using them every week since my cycles are so messed up, DH does know about that lol. I think I'm cycle day 10 now, hard to keep track when not charting!

Marie, come on witch! LEAVE! Wink Good luck this month....I'm going to be stalking you for sure! Lots of sticky bfp dust coming your way!

Kim, still no AF...I hope this is a good sign!

Tasha, come on AF! I hope she doesn't mess around and shows up quickly!

Michelle, I had one of those strange AFs a few cycles ago as well. I think sometimes our bodies like to mess with us a bit...you know?

Crystal, I'm still going to keep my fingers crossed for you even though you're not officially trying. You never know right?

AFM, I'm not really waiting to O but I'm going to cheer everyone on since I'm going to be waiting a looooong time. I have to be on BCPs for a few weeks! ~sigh~ At least there is no pressure...for now! Wink

Still nothing... not a lot of hope either. I had a serious breakdown this morning with DH. Poor guy. I cried and yelled and screamed and cried some more. I finally made it to work.... 3 hours late. It is definitely not my day. POAS.... negative of course.

AF showed up today so I'd like to join you all here. I got an obviously false faint positive yesterday so for AF to show up this morning was extremely disappointing.

I'm so sorry Kim. I hope this will be your month, hun! This TTC business is so incredibly emotionally draining. Fingers crossed we ALL get BFP's this month.

Ditto. Emotionally draining is the right words. I seriously feel so blah but at least AF arrived and now I can feel like I am working towards something again.

Mom2AB, sorry about the false +. I wish there were any easier way to find out if your preggo. Those tests can be sooooo flawed and the 2WW plays such terrible tricks on your mind. I HATE it! Ugh!

Kim, so sorry about that d@mn witch showing her hideous face. WE HATE YOU! But, at least your emotions will settle and you finally have an answer. A poopy answer, but an answer. Thinking of you!!!!!*

Jina, thanks for cheering us on. Will you be in the running for Jan then? I have to say, I just love winter babies. Smile

Michelle, is O getting close?? I'm an early Oer, or I was, so I always think people 'go' around the same time as me. Lol.

Crystal, are you gonna try anything different to help your body O naturally? I WAS typing to you before about sending you a niiiiice gift basket of 'lady' vitamins but my iPod must have had a fit b/c everything I typed disappeared. *insert various curse words**

Tasha, AF today?

I am dangling lots and lots of magical 4 leaf clovers over us for extra good luck. I swear, they're stronger than baby dust! Wink

Marie, my folks are headed to AZ on the 1st so I was thinking of ordering some stuff to their address so Mom could bring it home for me, I finally told her about TTC and the struggles we've had. She had secondary infertility as well and was just about to start fertility drugs (after TTC for 4 years) when she get pg with my brother. Where does everyone get their stuff? And WHAT should I oorder? I was thinking of the Royal Jelly like Kate mentioned but what else?

I love winter babies also, plus Maternity clothes are just cuter for fall/winter I think Smile

Love the four leafed clovers, Marie!

I'm about a week away from O'ing. I usually ovulate on Cd 14, 15, or 16. My ultrasound is on Monday (March 5th) so I am hoping he can tell me exactly when I will O. But, either way, DH and I will just have to get lots of BD'ing in on those days Wink

Momt2AandB, Ugh! I'm so sorry about the false positive. How disappointing! I hope this this your month and you get a blazing bfp!

Kim, Glad the witch finally showed so you can move on and start fresh! You know I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Marie, I think if all goes well, I might have an early to mid-Jan. due date but since we're transferring 2 embies, there is a real chance that we'll end up with twins, which would probably come early. So (late) December is still a possibility for me (I hope). Either way, I don't care....I just want a healthy baby! Biggrin

Oh and love the clovers! Thanks for all the neat blinkies....so cheerful! Wink

Crystal, I think you should really look into Vitex or Fertilaid (Fertilaid has vitex in it). They are supposed to help with hormone balancing to help promote regular ovulation. I've also tried Maca and Royal Jelly but I think you would benefit more from Vitex or Fertilaid. You can google them and get more info. I'm pretty sure you can order them from Amazon. Also, since you're having a hard time ordering in Canada, I suggest ordering a few months' supply. I know with Fertilaid, one bottle = one month supply. I've read that it could take up to 3 months for the product to fully take effect. I'm sure someone else will chime in with more suggestions! Good luck!! Biggrin

Michelle, Yay! Only a week away! How exciting about the u/s....I love getting one right around the time I O because you can see how many follies you have and can pinpoint when you're going to O. Eeek! Good luck and KUP! Biggrin

AFM, Ugh....I'm feeling so icky and bloated. Are BCPs supposed to make you feel like this? The last time I was on BCP was about 12 years ago so I have no clue....:dry: Anyway, time is starting to drag already....lol. ~sigh~

is she the TTC psychic? If so I emailed Cheri (Cheri22, not sure if anyone has seen or heard about her?) and her answer was I would conceive, give birth our find out in April. I don't take much stock into that kind of thing, but totally am hoping that I get pregnant and find out next month!

Yeah she's one of the 2 ppl on here have used. Actually Cait used both, maybe I shoudl go back through old posts on the other board to see which one was right, hers were both pretty close though.

Not sure who mentioned time dragging but boy do I hear you on that one!!!! I feel like all I have been doing lately is wishing time away..waiting to O..waiting to test..blah!

It seems since my m/c that my luteal phase is quite short (I'm actually beginning to wonder if the faint positive I got wasn't in fact false but maybe a chemical pregnancy). My luteal phase this cycle was 10 days. Any ideas on how to lengthen it?

Crystal, when will you get the results? I was pretty tempted to use Cheri but I was afraid she'd tell me something I didn't want to hear.....I make my own fate d@mn it! lol Wink

Michelle, it would be so cool if it turns out to be right! Yes! I *think* Cheri was right for Cait! Biggrin

Mom2AandB, It may take a while for your body to sort itself out after a loss. I know my cycles have changed after each m/c. You could talk to your doctor about getting on some progesterone and I've also heard that B6 helps lengthen LP as well.

3 days after the payment from my PayPal accout gets processed, so probably a week.

I just contacted the OB office up North and they said for the female Doc (who is the best apparently) it's up to a year if its not urgent but only a few months with the other 2 male docs in the office. I'm asking my doc to put a note on the referral that I'm open to seeing who ever can see me first.

Crystal, do they have a cancellation list that you can get on? Anyway, I would totally do the same thing....I'd want to see ANY doctor asap. Hopefully the wait won't be too excruciating since you'll be busy with your new house! Wink

Thanks Jina! I think I will be pretty busy with the house, and once we're moved I plan to walk more and train our border collie cross to run with me.... but I've got to get back into running first! So lots of plans which I hope will keep my mind occupied Smile I can't wait to see how your IVF goes!! I really hope you have some nice sticky twins!

I'm trying to stay away......but I can't.......entirely. Smile

Technically, I am WTO. Realistically, I don't have much of a chance since this month we are not doing IVF. I don't plan on temping or doing OPK's or anything, but will probably "try" for a miracle anyway.

Good luck everyone! You probably won't see a ton from me, maybe just a few posts here and there.

Crystal, thanks! I think it's a wonderful idea to start running again. Not only does it give you something to focus on but it's also good for your physical, mental and spiritual health! Also, please keep us posted with your home projects...:D

Kara, miracles DO happen! I'm going to keep everything crossed for you! Biggrin

I hope everyone's having a wonderful weekend! Wink

I'm officially moving over.

Kara, I hope you get your natural miracle this cycle. Failed IVF cycles are hard. I always needed a little bit of a break to recover.

Jina, hope your IVF cycle is successful!

Crystal, I love border collies (and mixes). My running partner is a big red mutt with the endurance of a horse. I will never be in good enough shape for him.

Got My reading (sort of):
Nicole,
Your reading reveals that your BFP news comes the month of June from a cycle that begins in May. The baby shows as a girl and her EDD/birth date is referenced the 15th of February 2013 and the 27th of January 2013.

Jennifer

I sent her a response telling her that my name isn't Nicole.... I'll see what she comes back with....

She said she must have had Nicole stuk in her head because she wrote Crystal and Nick down, but she said that's my reading. So no BFP until June? Hmm kinda hope she's wrong but honestly that's about right if I get into see a doc when I get moved. And it's not that far away now really.

Jina, looks like you're down to 1 week now! And, Tasha, you're almost on the same schedule, eh? Smile

Kara, hoping you at least stop by occasionally.

Crystal, I hope Jenny is right! May is right around the corner. Two months seems like nothing at this point!

Tasha, I'll be curious to see what she says for you (and whether she calls you Nicole).

Who's around now?

Crystal - FX she is right! (or you get pregnant sooner of course) but May really IS just right around the corner!

Jina and Tasha - It's almost time for your IUI! Are you getting beyond excited? Smile

Beth - I'm sorry the witch showed Sad Didn't she know she wasn't invited to the party?

Kara - Miracles can and do absolutely happen! I will keep everything crossed for you, hun!

AFM - Ultrasound at 3:00 today to see if we can see some follicles and about when O will happen.

Beth, I'm sorry about AF showing. I know you're going to see your RE in July but you mentioned going in sooner for a consult....did you decide to?

It's actually going to be a longer wait for me. I'm currently waiting for AF and when she arrives (hopefully in 1 week) I have 2-3 weeks of BCP. Time has pretty much stopped for me...I'm sure you know what I'm talking about since you've been on the IVF roller coaster ride.

Crystal, May isn't that far away. I hope she turns out to be right! Biggrin

Michelle, Good luck at the u/s! Please KUP!

Just thought I would post over here too. This feels kind of weird being the first cycle that I am "waiting to O" but actually have a schedule for everything (including when to Stop BD'ing--that's a new one) so this is the first time there's no real pressure to get things timed right, and that's kind of nice.

Michelle: Can't wait to hear the update on the U/S. Mine is set for next Tuesday.

Karen - Sorry AF showed Sad

Well.... I have good news and I have bad news regarding my ultrasound. The bad news is with me being on CD 11, I should have some nice sized follicles, and unfortunately I didn't. Looks like I FINALLY have an answer as to why I haven't gotten pregnant all this time. I do ovulate, but I just don't....what would be the best description?....efficiently ovulate. So, I'm sad to hear this but at the same time I finally have a game plan. The good news is I picked up my prescription of Clomid today so next cycle will be (what I think) the best chance to conceive that DH and I have ever had since I am not ovulating well.

So, question ladies that have taken Clomid. I know I won't be taking it until CD 3, and that is a ways away for me but what can I expect when I do start taking it? What symptoms did you have?

Oh Michelle, sorry it wasn't good news but answers are always best - now you really do have a good shot next month! I'm HOPING that I'll get some of my own soon too!
Wait what did Cheri say for you wasn't it April? like maybe you'll get pg in april?? Biggrin

Erin I hope you have a great month, is it an odd feeling not thinking about timing?

Karen sorry AF showed but at least you're in good company here Smile

Tasha How are you feeling?

Erin, I so know what you mean. I've been so obsessive about temping, OPK-ing, checking CP, checking CM and timing BD that I don't know what to do with myself this cycle....lol. Pretty much everything will be dictated by my RE from now on so it feels strangely odd yet relieving to not be in control.

Karen, I'm sorry. Sad

Michelle, I'm sorry you didn't get the news you were hoping for but at least you finally have some answers! I'm glad your RE has a game plan for you. Are you going to be monitored? I took Clomid for one cycle and I hardly had any symptoms. I had some hot flashes, lethargy and a bit of a headache. I stopped taking it because it really dried up my cm but I know lots of people have good luck with it. I'm sure you won't really have any bad side effects the first month of being on Clomid. I hope this does the trick and we see a bfp in the near future!

Hi ladies! :wavehello: I'm still waiting for AF to show... should be any time now. When I got my reading from Jenny she said that I would get my BFP in April from a cycle starting in march, so that would be this month! *crossess fingers*

Yeah, Cheri said I would get pregnant in April. I'm starting Clomid in April. Coincidental? Hmmm...We'll see what happens! Smile
