I finally called my doctor's office and spoke with the nurse. I was feeling too confused to know what I should do. I asked her if I should start taking the medicine right away, and she said yes. I asked her how long it would take for my period to return once I stopped taking the pills, and she said my periods wouldn't change, and that it would return when it normally should. I said to her that I was confused because I have friends who take it to jump start their periods, and she replied by saying that Provera works 2 ways: it can jump start a period, or in my case, it can stop the bleeding of a period that's last a long time. I asked if we had to wait to TTC and she said no. If we're comfortable trying now, she said go for it. I am not sure what we'll do yet, but I am glad that I called and got a "few" answers to my many, many questions.
TTC is never easy, is it? My temp has risen significantly over the past 2 days, but I'm only on CD12. If my temp stays elevated tomorrow, I know FF will give me CHs and there's no way I ovulated so early...is there? My normal post O temps are in the 97s, so this just doesn't make any sense to me. I'm anxious and nervous to see what tomorrow does. If I did in fact O already, then we're screwed this cycle because we didn't BD close to O day at all :( I guess we'll keep at it in hopes that FF is wrong. There's not much else I can do, and be hopeful that my temp dips tomorrow for at least a few more days...
Well, I went out and bought some OPKs because I'm really scared that we missed it this month. Thankfully the OPK was negative...I want it that way until at least tomorrow so we can get in some decent BDing. We'll see what happens with my temp tomorrow...
FF gave me CHs this morning :dontknow: I don't buy it, but it appears that FF isn't to sure of itself either since it gave me dotted CHs. I was also reading the information in the ovulation detector box and it said:
"While ovulation has been detected on your chart, the progesterone supplement that you are taking may also be the cause of your thermal shift."
So, I'm hoping it's safe to say that I haven't Od yet?? We'll keep BDing and I'll keep taking those OPKs and hopefully in a few days FF will realize it is wrong and correct itself. Otherwise, I'd have to hope and pray that the BDing we did on CD 8 was close enough. I really think it's wrong though, so it will be interesting to see what happens over the course of the next few days.
Well, it's been a couple days since I wrote in here because I feel like I'm clueless with this cycle. I really have no idea what is going on with my body. I took another OPK on Saturday and it was super light!! I was thinking, great!! Fertility Friend was indeed accurate, and I must have caught the tailend of the surger....but then I took another one on Sunday and it was super dark....I thought it was a positive, so I posted it on the DYSAL board, and most of them thought it was super close, but not quite there yet. Well, I marked it as positve, then had another positive yesterday around 4 PM. When I took another one around 6 PM it was negative, so hopefully we caught the eggie. We BD on Sunday and Monday morning, and we'll do it tonight to just for good meausre! I guess we'll see what my temps do over the next few days...they went up this morning to 97.03 and that is a typical post-O temp...so hopefully we did enough :)
Well, I Od on Wednesday, like I thought I had. That is reassuring that my O day has been consistent for 2 months. Hopefully it will continue to remain the same. This month I will not obsess over any symptoms. I really have no idea how the Progesterone will affect my cycle and I just don't want to get my heart broken. I don't have any symptoms right now...although I've felt off for 2 days now. Just not feeling well, but I think it's the stress of everything going on around me: getting ready to go back to work, working a part-time job, and stressing about life in general.
I looked back at my pshyic reading from Jenny Renny and she said I will get pregnant from a cycle that starts in August and ends in September with a BFP. We'll see. I hope she's off by a month, but I take those things with a grain of salt anyway. It'll be interesting to see if she's accurate or not though :shrug:
Ugh...I haven't written in here for nearly a week. AF showed up 5 dpo (3 days after I took the last Provera pill), so that cycle was a complete bust! I'm just at the point right now where I feel helpless, defeated, and ready to quit. It doesn't help that another friend of mine just shared the news that she's pregnant. I'm happy for her, but each friend that ends up pregnant pokes at my heart and it's taken as good of a beating as I can handle right now.
The only thing holding me together right now is my girls. I'm so thankful for them, but I want to give them a little brother or sister. I know when I'm meant to that I will, but it just stinks.
School started back up today. I had mostly meetings today, so not much time to work in my room. Tomorrow is mostly a work day though, so I can get a lot of things done I hope ;) I'm excited for the new year to start, but a little nervous too. I'm teaching a subject that I haven't taught in a year, and it's a major subject. Alright, I've got to get back into the habit of going to bed early. I need some sleep...
It's been almost 2 weeks since I've written in here and it's been a crazy few weeks. I got my period yesterday, on CD19 :eek: I think there is something seriously wrong with my body but I haven't been able to get into the doctor. I called the other office in town and the soonest they could get me in was September 21. I have a follow-up appointment with my regular doctor on the 29th, but that's just too far away for me. I want some answers, and I want them now! I looked up the signs of low progesterone again and I have 15+ symptoms. I really think this may be my problem.
I didn't even O with my last cycle. I had + OPKs, but AF showed before I would have actually Od. I am trying to remain positive that this is my month, so we'll see what happens. If, and that's a big IF, I get pregnant I'd be due June 8. I'd have a repeat c-section on June 1, which is Addison's birthday. I think that's a good sign, and part of me can't help thinking about my pshyic reading. She said I'd deliver on June 2...hmm :confused: Interesting! I better head off to bed, but I'm going to try to keep this updated more. It was so much easier during the summer. I forgot how hard it is during the school year to do much of anything!
I'm thinking tonight might be the big O. I thought I had Od yesterday. I had a nice temp jump, but today my temp went back down. I'm hoping is an O dip, so we'll BD tonight and hope for the best. We're trying the every other day method and hoping one of these months something works for us.
This month has been pretty normal for me...as in how my cycles USED to be. I had a normal period :yahoo: I had 4 days of flow and 2 days of spotting. I'm a tad bit crampy right now...feels similiar to AF, but I'm hoping their O cramps. It'll be a long wait over the next few days waiting to see what my temps do. I'm very anxious though. If I am indeed Oing today, I'll be 11 dpo at my doctor's visit. I wonder if they'd do a blood test :confused: Something to think about I guess if I'm feeling pregnant :shrug:
Well, phooey! My temp went down a smidge again...from 96.58 to 96.54 :( I am starting to wonder if even though I had a normal period I won't O until CD17 like I have been, or if I'm in store for AF. I've got a backache today, and that's usually a good indicator that she's on her way. I guess I'll just have to wait it out and see what happens...but like always the waiting is the hardest. It seems like when you're TTC waiting is all you do. I hope my temps do something good over the next few days....
