Hi Patrice! I'll probably be here in a few days. I have to O by CD14 or DH is gone and I end up in May. Since I have never in my life had 28 day cycle I doubt that will happen but thought I'd be hopeful and stick around April for a bit. Smile

Hi ladies, same boat as Becky, have to O by CD 14 to even have a chance for April, otherwise moving on to May. DH leaves on a trip on Wednesday (CD10). I'm going to force him to DTD that morning though, just in case! Smile

Hello again! I'm moving onto May. I might have O'd yesterday but last time we DTD was on CD10 and it's CD15 today so just no chance IMHO I'm pregnant. Sad Also, I still don't see much EWCM so I'm wondering if I've O'd now at all? *sigh* I'm kind of sad this is happening. I've been SO LUCKY the other times I've tried to get pregnant. this is the longest it's ever taken. I know, stop complaining right?! I now understand a bit better what everyone else goes through TTC. It certainly makes me a more understanding friend right?! Smile

I'm starting to get nervous, my appointment is Thursday, I know there will be no answers then but I am still scared. I have to go alone, hubby's boss wouldn't give him the day off

Hi everyone! AF is on her way. I am cramping like crazy. No AF yet, but I'm hanging here with you guys!

Today I did on a thorough on my girls' room & closet, which even included going through and reducing the future baby's boxes by 1 (not enough room to save all this stuff) and I remembered just how bad I want this. I am really excited to start school in a few weeks but will only feel bliss and excitement when I fall pregnant in the middle of getting my degree. :cloud9:

Mel, maybe you will be our 1st May bfp? Or too far-fetched with your BD timing??

Sarah - way too far fetched with my BD timing. I don't even think I've O'd yet (CD17) and haven't had sex since CD10. *sigh* another month down the garbage chute!

I'm sorry Mel, is hubby home soon, maybe O will hold out for his return

Looks like I will be on to IUI now, just a matter of when, there is some minor chance we could scrape it in this month but we would be pushing it.

Mel maybe you will O when he gets back and just have a longer than normal cycle? As you know I have that problem and I find it frustrating but on the bright side you sometimes end up with a chance of conceiving when otherwise you would be out.

Im back on the TWW in April, DH got his orders adjusted to leave later because of our move and I O'd on cd 16 which is a couple days early for me, but don't get too excited for me. BD timing wasn't great. Good luck to all of you still waiting to O!

So excited to see so many gals in May. I got a positive OPK yesterday. DH and I have been DTD every day since CD7 lol. That was his idea...since we don't really know what we're doing...just make sure i have plenty of sperm to go around lol.

FF says I O'd today just from past cycles and so forth. But the OPK today is lighter. The OPK yesterday was an obvious positive. So...now I'm in the 2WW. If we conceived this month we'll have a due date of May 3rd.

We're planning on testing starting around Aug 17th or 18th since my August AF should start on the 23rd if we didn't catch the eggy.

A friend suggested I try Vitex Agnus-castus so here I am latch ditch effort before IUI taking that and drinking fertility tea. I think I might be a bit late starting the vitamins though seeing as I O at the end of next week but I'm willing to try anything.

Chem Pg mentioned

So it would be nice to get pregnant this month, I could have a mother's day baby, and if baby was a few days late it could share my Dad's birthday. So far though if anything has lined up well there's been no baby that month, lets hope this month is the exception.

I'm struggling this month and probably early next month as well. IO had a Chem pregnancy in December and that baby was due Sept 7, which is hubby's birthday, but tests turned negative on Christmas day, which sadly is the same day I lost my Nanna. I have thought about that chem pregnancy constantly since then, it hit me the hardest of any of the ones I have had, probably because we needed some good news at that exact time and it hit me harder because of the emotions at the time. Sorry for ranting and raving, but as August goes on I am struggling with lots of thoughts.

Thanks Mel, I feel stupid for being so sad over a pregnancy that really wasn't but it was also so real, I was sick in the mornings as well and really dark lines. Oh well it wasn't meant to be I guess.

Come on time, I really want it to go fast and either be pregnant ( preferred option) or be able to move on

I'm here now too...CD 2 so I have a ways to go waiting to O. DH and I have both started taking coQ10, hoping it'll improve egg and sperm quality. I'm fully committed to pulling out all the stops this cycle (6th cycle ttc #3). May would be such a nice month to have a baby Smile

So FF has given me dotted crosshairs at CD 12, that is an early O for me, and timing hasn't been so great this month as hubby and I are both sick. If CD 12 was it we got the day before and the day after in, and we are aiming for one more BD tonight, just in case FF moves the cross hairs after tomorrows temp

I'm waiting for this cycle to be over (no chance at all I'm preggo) so I can start on my May cycle!! I calculated it out and I'd have a possible EDD of May 28 I think.

I'm willing to do anything. Cycle number 7. Ttc#3 as well.

Let's have a miracle. Hoping we all land great swimmers Wink

Mel, That is the date I calculated out as well based on my usual O date!

Just twiddling thumbs for now!

FF moved my O date to CD16, which means we only DTD once in a decent window which was CD15, so fingers crossed that was enough. Hubby and I were both sick, and only chucked in aCD15 for the hell of it as I had been pegged as CD12 for O.

Wendy - those swimmers can last a few days. I think you're okay! I really hope you caught your eggie!!

Today I had the worst O pain I've ever had (in all of my 3 months of O'ing lol). But it was seriously painful. I had 2 follicles on the right and 1 on the left.. I'm pretty sure they all popped out.. I just pray we caught at least 1!

Me? I thought I had updated. Basically we have unexplained secondary infertility. The specialist wants us to have at least 3 shots at IUI before the year is over. We were unable to do this cycle as the dates didn't line up and one crucial day was a Sunday so we are having one last shot naturally and moving on to IUI if we need to in September. Hubby is probably going to need to freeze his contribution due to his work commitments and they do prefer fresh, but after explaining our situation they said freezing looks the way to go. I'll know next week where to from here, i am 7dpo by FF's latest calculations (if the initial O date was correct though i am 11 dpo). The doctor also said they have a high rate of people coming for an initial consult and a few weeks later ringing back and saying no need to proceed I'm pregnant

Sorry I must have missed update.
Well I hope the freezing works. You have to do what needs to be done. On the other hand I hope your going to be the girl who calls in saying guess what your having a baby!

Does DH travel a lot? Can you DTD often enough or is he away while you O?

So CD 3 here. I'd be due at the very end of May. I'm finding I hate being on the end of the month, everyone "moves on" to the next month and it's even quieter than it was around here. Anyway......

At least DH will be home this entire cycle. I've warned him we are going to DTD a lot. I really want a May baby!

I'm here now and right with you Mel! I usually O between CD 16-18 so I'd be very end of May. I agree with not liking the end of the month but we can hang out together. Smile

No, hubby is home, he just works in hospitality and can not get time off when he requests it usually. You don't get sick days at his job you get dead days. We have kept all of this quiet from family and workplaces, I have ambiguous 'health needs that need follow up' when I need time off work.

And for anyone who wants to chart stalk

My Ovulation Chart

My chart is revealing nothing yet, I had the dry heaves yesterday morning which was not fun, and in bed stupidly early every night, the last two nights have been 8:30.

it's way too early to tell anything Wendy. Looks like your temp drops around 12 DPO right? So we should have an indication by then?

Yes and no, I did have one or two months where my temp was still up and af arrived, but yeah usually around 12dpo, I can usually tell hubby we are out before af arrives

Wendy your chart is looking good. My fingers are crossed for you guys.

Nothing exciting happening here yet. Still have AF still doing injections. But now I get to juggle appointments next week. I hate not having a clear week in advance schedual and it all pinning on how a Monday morning appointment goes.

Thats what I worry about if we have to go that route next month Jodie, especially as it is already a carzy month for me and we have to drive an hour and a half each way.

I am lucky my appointment is first thing in the morning, but things with the support group and playgroup I run have been a little crazy. (At least I have a good distraction.)

I've been in and out of the boards for two years because of an indecisive husband on a 3rd child. Well he told me last night that he wants to actively try until we get PG!!! WOOT! Just in time because I am in my extra fertile phase right now!

Even if I were to get the first appointment it would nearly be lunch time by the time I got back and that would mean leaving here at 7:30am and my sons daycare doesn't open until 7:30

And temp down again, it might be a case of hello June. I always wanted a June baby, but I kinda wanted to have already had that June baby.

Yup went up again this morning. I am so freaking tired, I was ready for bed at lunchtime yesterday, I ended up going to bed just after 7:30pm., I've woken up at 6am and feel like I never slept. I'm having dreams I remember as well which hasn't happened for awhile and they are all a little weird

Oh exciting Wendy. You are reminding me of what it is like when I fell pregnant with DS.
This was my chart back then:
