Hi ladies! I'm not new to this site but I think my user name might have been deleted for some reason. I'm not sure, but it wouldn't let me log in. Anyway, my user name used to be hereshoping and I was active on the November 2007 and August 2010 birth boards...both of which aren't around any longer. We are TTC #3 and I'm either 10dpo or 6dpo. I don't chart, because I have really erratic sleeping habits, but I watch my CM like a hawk. I had EWCM last week at the beginning and end of the week...not real sure about all the ins and outs! Anyway, I have a DD(5) and a DS(2.5) and I've also had 2 losses. I'd like to hang out here with you ladies for now if that's alright! :) Good luck to everyone!!!!
ETA....yay! I got my old name back. I am thrilled about that. :)
I really hope you're right, Isis! Sounds promising! Eight positives would certainly have me convinced ;)
I've kind of been lurking, we decided that TTC needs to be moved to the back burner because it was totally consuming me. I was active on the April 2013 board until we experienced a loss mid-September. Since the m/c, my cycles have been pretty irregular in the sense that O has been all over the place. Things seem to be settling in now though, I think I'm 2DPO now which makes for the earliest O date I've ever had (awesome!). If we do get a BFP this month, the first thing I need to do is call the Dr. for bloodwork, I'm 100% sure that my progesterone is low because I experience all of the symptoms and want to correct that as fast as we can!
I hope to get to know you all a little better and wish you all good luck this month :)
Looks like I'm gearing up to O. Not temping or using OPKs but lots of EWCM and twinges. Would be due last week of Nov, after all.....riding the fence! Cheers and best wishes :)
I'm glad you have another chance at November Sarah! Good luck!
I'm going crazy over here. I'm 10 or 11 DPO. I have been feeling unlucky all month and no trying my hopes up. Then I poas yesterday and got a BFN. even tho, it's early, I counted myself out. I just didn't feel it.
Then I talked with my mom last night (she knows we're TTC, no one else does) and she somehow convinced me to hold out hope. And just that glimmer of hope has now turned into full blown symptom obsessing. Literally last night my BBs started aching way more, to the point of throbbing and twinges. Just now I cut an apple for my LO and somehow doing that caused pain in my BBs. And the creamy cm that had ceased around 8dpo is back. And there is no shortage of gas or gas pains (which were the earliest symptoms I'm remember with each of my boys).
I didn't want to do this. I didn't want to psych myself up or symptom obsess. I said most of this stuff last month too. And that was nothing.
My body is playing some cruel joke on me. Ugghhh.
I'm officially here. I've still been mostly lurking as dont want to get my hopes up. I'm 4dpo according to FF. I've had a few signs that contradict that but others that support it so I don't know. I guess time will tell.
Jessica (jesse.red), they all look like good signs so fingers crossed. When will you test again?
Jessica (browntown), I'm really crossing my fingers that this is the last time you need to jump boards! It's not fair to have a m/c then have it take a long time to fall again. I've found every month gets harder to deal with AF
jesse.red - I hear you with the symptom obsessing. I kind of feel like I'm paying more attention to some of the symptoms that I don't have, because usually by this point I've already begun to have the pre-AF spotting. Not this month though. Hope isn't always a bad thing, fingers crossed that your mom was right!
shadow-grey - I'm hoping the same for YOU! I feel like we've been kind of following along together, maybe this could be a good month for both of us!
I've spent the last month or two focusing more on getting myself healthy. I've finally started treatments for some pain I'd been having over the past year related to a car accident I was in. The chiropractor has been helping a lot and she has given a lot of great fertility advice. I'm also seeing a naturopathic doctor.. That's okay, and I've tried some acupuncture. Not sure how I feel about that yet, but I know that some people swear by it. I figure that if nothing happens, at least I tried, and if something works, awesome..
Jessica, it would be great if it could be both our months! I was due this month with the most recent miscarriage and the loss before that was a November baby. Maybe I can get lucky in march with a BFP for a nov baby ;)
You reminded me that I had never gotten my old name back!!! I was easily able to merge accounts. So thanks for reminding me!
