I got my 7dpo progesterone result back - 53 so thats a lovely number.....shame it wasnt a pg number!!! There were also the other results back:
SHBG - 95
Tes1 - 1.3
DFT1 - 18
.........not sure what any of them mean.
Im at work at the mo, time is going really slowly, still got another hour and a half. Im trying not to slip on my better eating/health plan, having af arrive has let me down a little, almost like whats the point. But then i have to remember im doing this so i can fall pg, that is the point!!
I got the marilyn glenville fertility supplements and omega 3 yesterday so i replaced my regular prenats with them.
Not much to tell, on CD 3.
I have given up the temping this month, i want a month off im sick of it all. Im not going to not try, will still use my monitor but im not going to stay too focused on this cycle. What with christmas coming up im just going to enjoy it and have a few drinks. Bf will be on nights also around O time so not to sure if timing will be that great anyway.
Out for a meal tonight, need to go dry my hair!!
Odd. I started spotting yesterday, and still slightly today....its bright red blood too, not sure what that is all about. Not long til my appointment, i will mention it. Only 4 days!
It was a year on Sunday since the m/c. I was going to write on here but just couldnt bring myself to do it. I cant believe a year has passed - and i feel so so so cross about everything we lost. This christmas should be all about the baby we never had. I try to stay positive but i cant help these thoughts, and i feel so so bitter when i see other pg ladies. I wish i could stop that. Oh well, just got to keep telling myself it will be my turn soon.
Christmas day tomo, got all my last bits of shopping today.
Puppy has grown so much, he is 14 weeks now!!!
Not much else to say at the mo!!
CD 14, still no high on monitor. Thats a good thing though as bf is on nights so our timin wouldnt have been great anyway. He has his 5 days off from tomo, hopefully O will arrive around then.
Im looking forward to tomo, my appointment finally!! I really hope the consultant does something other than just tell me bf has to go for a SA. Im hoping clomid may be an option and give me a stronger O and a longer LP.
Christmas all over with now, i have been so unhealthy but then i knew i would be at this time of year. Back to the health plan in the new year!!
Had my follow up today, kind of unhappy and happy with it at the same time. The woman wasnt as good as the last one, a bit vague and seemed to shrug off my concerns and questions. She said my bloods were all normal. She said she wont give me clomid as i appear to be ovulating, so i said but it is intermittetly; she didnt want to see my charts and said did i have blood tests on all my cycles. Of course not. Ugh.
I said could my progesterone be tailing off too quickly (i explained about i keep getting 9dpo spotting then af at 10 dpo on occasions) she didnt seem to get this question as she just kept saying no you are ovulating you have healthy levels. Give me strength!!!!
Told me to get bf SA done. Which i know already. I asked her again, please can i try clomid as its now been 2 yrs in total, she said no its been 1 year really as i m/c.
But, she does want me to have a HSG done. I have to have that done on either day 7, 8 or 9 so will be next month. The hosp only do 4 days a month on HSG's so how the heck im going to manage that i do not know. My sister works in the radiology dept and she spoke to her boss who apparently said to her last week if i need a HSG then he will sort it out somehow and make sure i get the best person. Thats something i guess.
I was reading online that it is quite common for women to fall pg after a HSG as it clears out any debris/mucous plus etc so thats a positive. Not looking forward to it though, its meant to cramp you up as they flush the dye in through the cervix.
I do feel a little deflated about the whole apponintment, i really wanted to try the clomid!!!
My letter came through, my sister managed to schedule the HSG for 22 Jan - i should be on cD 10 at that point so just got in there!! That is if i dont get a bfp this cycle which of course i am really hoping for!!!!!
If there is no bfp and my HSG comes back ok, i am seriously thinking of trying 2 doses of clomid myself. I know its not the best situation but my friend at work is now 9 months gone after giving herself 1 dose of clomid. Talking to my sister, her friend at the hosp was on clomid and she recieved no monitoring at all from her docs!!! That seems to be the case for most ladies that i have spoken too. I guess i shall wait and see on that one.
I think im o'ing today, we bd the other night and last night so got some good timing in, will try tonight but not sure if we will be able to fit it in as we have bf's dad round for new years eve. At least i have some cover tho!! In fact it is the same timing that got me my last bfp before.
4dpo. Good timing this cycle. We did get one more bd in as bf's dad didnt come over so that was good....lol we actually bd'd into the new year ha ha sorry if tmi!! So im hoping that is a lucky time to concieve, that would be so great!!
Nothing to report on the symptoms side of things, just the post O tender breasts at the moment. Im going to try to not test early again, although i have found that when i do test early and its a bfn although its hugely disappointing i dont feel as upset when af arrives. I was absolutely gutted last cycle, more so than any and i dont fancy getting upset like that again.
8dpo - no more symptoms apart from tender breasts still and they doo feel more tender than usual so thats some hope!! I was in the supermarket today and they had baby 2-pieces going cheap, i thought why the hell not and bought one in the hope it may give me some luck and bring me a bfp this cycle!! I suppose i'll find out in 4 days....although maybe sooner as im contemplating testing earlier.
Ugh. I feel like crap at the mo. Im at work and this morn was going ok. Then my collegue came in and i have found out his wife is pg again. So...to recap....i started ttc in dec 2006, so did 2 of my colleagues. They both have a 1 year old baby, one is 9mth pg and now the 2nd one is pg again too. WHY CANT I JUST HAVE ONE PREGNANCY!!!!! Why did i have to m/c....its so unfair.
Dont get me wrong, i like my colleague, we get on well.....but he is the kind of person (and she is, she works here too) that will go on and on about it. Thats all ill hear now. Everything. All her symptoms. Every single bit. Ugh. I feel so rubbish now. And jealous, i hate feeling like this.
As for me, i caved in and tested at 10 + 11 dpo - BFN. Im 12dpo, temder breasts, no spotting. Hoping im pg but thinking i know im not. Perhaps im only 11dpo today, there was a temp i was unsure about. I did have some spotting the other day but its gone again....that gives me a little hope to think i am pg. My temps are still up too. Im rambling now so gonna go.
