My Ovulation Chart
Oh look my chart is looking flat. Doctors appointment tomorrow so hopefully she will give me the referral to the fertility clinic
I still don't know a ton about charting. Isn't it good if the temp is still above the cover line or does it need to continue to rise daily?
I can honestly say that going to the fertility doc changed everything for me. They handle it all so differently and I thought ultimately that it would be really depressing but they're usually very positive and committed to getting you where you need to be. If I was still at my OB right now we'd probably still wouldn't know I have Endometriosis.
It needs to stay above the cover line, but my personal experience is never getting a bfp with a flat chart.
It's still going to take some time to get into the fertility doctor, I have to arrange time off work and my hubby can not get time off, we have to work around his days off, plus the nearest clinic is an hour and a half away so it will get very time consuming and expensive for us. My GP doesn't believe there are any issues because my charts clearly show me ovulating with decent luteal phases. Hubby's SA was normal bar the raised Leucocytes, so basically our local GP doesn't really care
I'm sorry you have to wait to get in. Ours is an hour away which wasn't too bad when DH worked a few minutes from home for his step dad and could get off whenever he needed. Now he works 45 minutes in the other direction from the fertility clinic so if we get into doing IUI or anything like that in the future it could get more complicated.
There are other things that can cause you not to get pregnant other than not O'ing or having a LP defect so I wonder why your GP has such a whatever attitude towards it. With that said though, I have quite a few friends who got pregnant with some of their worst looking charts so anything can happen. I also know a bunch who had triphasic charts and didn't, so you just never know. That of course is what sucks about TTC, you never know. Not what you want to, when you want to, etc. Lol. I was mad obsessed with every little thing last time we were TTC and we've had an 8 month break so I'm hoping I'm calmer this time...I kind of doubt it though. Lol.
I hope your good GP gives you a referral! It can't hurt to get checked out, and if nothing else will hopefully calm your mind. Good luck tomorrow!
I'm having a lot of breast tenderness for so soon after O. I hope that means it was a good healthy O and my progesterone is doing what it's supposed to. I don't even want to have to take progesterone supplements again. It's so evil!
And yes a HUGE worry off my mind. I think I can kind of relax and not worry so much about whether or not I'm pregnant because I know it'll happen eventually since my body is doing the right thing. Granted I'm only 3dpo...we'll see if I mention the word relaxed in a week. Lol.
Hi all! I can't believe how many BFPs are here already. I feel like this is earlier than normal for so many. Must be lucky
I'm headed on a 3 day beach trip on the other coast with my inlaws (who are fun-loving drinkers) and so torn on what to do.) I really don't want to drink, especially since I already did at like 2 and 3 DPO, but at the same time it would be sooooo suspicious if I don't, and if I'm not pregnant, downright annoying.
What do you think, drink until you see pink or fake it and make mine a virgin-style?

That is tough Sarah, with my first pregnancy I did have a few drinks it was over the holiday and we had so many parties to attend. Also we were not actively trying but also not preventing so I didn't think I was pregnant. Lo and behold I was. But with this one I went to pour myself a glass of wine before I even o'd and dh was like what are you doing we are trying to get pregnant! Maybe bc its taking us so long this go round I am not doing anything that I couldn't do pregnant
