I bought a 7 day pack of OPKs yesterday and will probably start using them on like day 14 I think. I'm not sure yet. I have to some research and find out when a good time will be.
I have to go in on August 12th to get a progesterone test, and then in to see my doctor on the 22nd. Hopefully the progesterone test will show something, either that I'm not ovulating on my own again or something. I'm not sure what the next step will be. I have kind of a feeling that I will be put on Clomid or something like that. But who knows. I couldn't take any progesterone pills this time because I started AF on my own. So we will see how this cycle goes. It would be great if I could get pregnant on my own. Maybe we will find out that I'm not sustaining a pregnancy and just have really early miscarriages??? I don't know, but I do hope that my progesterone test will show something.
This ttc stuff is such an emotional rollercoaster. I just can't trust my symptoms anymore. I'll just have to wait until I miss AF or something because testing way too early is too disappointing and stressful when you see the BFN.
So, I got a postive on my opk last night. That's really strange since I thought I didn't O until like day 17 or 18 or around there somewhere. I'm going to take another one tonight just to see if it goes lighter or stays dark or whatever. I don't have a lot of experience with opks though, but I know that my test line was the same color as the control line.
Dh and I are going to bd for the next two days. We did last night and decided that if the test was right, I should be O'ing in the next 12 to 36 hours I think that's what I read anyways.
I've been having such a bad headache for the last 3 or 4 days I need to go in and get my eyes checked because I think i'm straining my eyes and that's causing these headaches. Plus, being here 10 & 1/2 hours and being on the computer is causeing this. Or, maybe i'm going to O soon and i'm just having headaches from that or something??? Who knows, but hope to find out soon.
On Thursday after work, me, dh, BIL and his fiance are going to Jackpot to have some fun and do some gambling and drinking. I might not drink a whole lot since I want to stay healthy and plus i'm sure it won't take me much to even get a buzz because I haven't drank for a least 3 or 4 months, maybe even more than that. But i'm excited to go and have some fun anyways. This will be for their bachelor/bachelorette party and they are both excited to go
Two positive opks and one negative opk later. Must have had my LH surge two nights ago or one night ago. I got ewcm yesterday afternoon and also feeling some O pains. My bb's are also feeling a little sore. The nipples the most. All good signs I hope Me and dh bd 3 days in a row and taking tonight off because we need a break
Since I had a positive on my opk, i'm hoping that's a huge possibilty of actuallying O'ing. I read on a site that even if you get a positive, there is still a chance of not O'ing. I'm hoping that with the mucous signs and positive opk that I do O. Also the O pains I felt yesterday are hopefully another good indicator.
I have to wait until next Friday to get my blood test to check my progesterone level. If i'm having any other symptoms by then maybe I can have my doctor do a pregnancy test...or maybe it would be too early to detect it if I am at the time. I am hoping to see a temp rise here in the next few days. I won't be able to temp tomorrow morning because I'm headed to Jackpot tonight and most likely will be staying up really late and won't get enough sleep. It's hard to go to bed early when you are having a ton of fun!!
Anways, I am hoping and praying that this the month for me an dh. It would be awesome to get pregnant and know that I did it on my own instead of having to take those pills.
Well, I haven't posting lately and sorry that I haven't kept you all updated. Just been really busy.
Well, as you can see on FF chart, I got another positive opk on day 17, but the line was soooo much darker than the other tests I took. So, I hope that I didn't bd too early. I do hope this is the month for me. It would be nice to get pregnant without having to take prometrium.
I go in tomorrow to get my progesterone checked and I hope to results tomorrow afternoon sometime. I don't want to wait over the weekend!! This is my third day of having sore bb's!! They usually start out not hurting very much, but they just all of a sudden started to hurt bad. I know they will get worse in a few days or so, but it's just unusual to hurt this bad already. I hope it means something good!!
Gosh, I'm just having a hard time getting new posts on here. I really need to get better at it.
Tomorrow I get my results from my progesterone test. I have so many scenerios (sp?) going through my mind, and I just got to stop thinking about them all because i'm going crazy!!! From my FF chart, it really looks like I O'd and plus i'm having really sore bb's, heartburn, and tired. I do feel a lot better than last month though, so i'm not sure what to think of that. I had all these symptoms last month that I was sure I was pregnant, but wasn't. *sigh* I'm trying really hard not to focus on my symptoms this time, and just go day by day and take my temps. I'm hoping that the results will show something.
I'll post the results as soon as I get them...well as soon as I talk to dh about them first
Sorry for the long delay in my posts. I just was taking a break from posting and getting online.
As you can see my ticker says i'm on Cycle day 6. I think that i'm O'ing way later in my cycle than I think I am. My progesterone test showed that I didn't really O, and I think they took the test too early and I actually missed the O surge or something. If that makes any sense.
My doctor looked at all my charts and said it's just a matter of time before I get pregnant. She said that my chart are clearly showing i'm ovulating and maybe me and dh are trying way too early. So, we are going to wait until about day 17 or 18 to do any bding. And hopefully this will actually be the month. I think we are going to try for a couple more months and then if nothing, I will try Clomid. We really don't want to intervene, but we don't want nothing to happen neither. So I really hope and pray that this is the month so I don't have to worry about taking fertility drugs.
Well, My chart has some temps missing because i've been sick with a cold for awhile. So, temping wouldn't have done any good. I was finally able to start temping again on Saturday and looks like they are back to normal. I hope that being sick doesn't mess up this cycle at all. I would hate to not O because my body was sick. That would make me very frustrated.
I bought some OPK's from that baby hopes site and they came with a little pack of baby dust. Very cute I will probably start the opk's later this week, probably Thursday. I also think we will start bding then too. I have a wedding Friday night and it will be a really late night so dh and I will probably not bd that night. I really do hope that this is the month for me this time. Since I know now that I ovulate later in my cycle, I hope that I can catch that egg this time by waiting to bd later.
Dh wants to try for a couple more cycles if it doesn't happen this time, but I really don't want to wait any longer. It's already a year from the time I miscarried. I don't remember the day because I didn't want to be sad every year on the same day. It's not that I want to forget, cause of course I'll never forget, but I just don't want a specific day that I just become sad.
Anyways, this will be a short work week for me since I don't work on Fridays' and had Monday off for Labor Day. Yay!!
I don't know what to think about this month. I don't think I have a chance of getting pregnant. With being sick, my BIL's wedding (which I stressed big time over) I just don't think i'm actually going to start AF until really late. I did start taking my opks on day 17 and I think I had a positive on day 19 because the first two were really light, then this one was dark on the left edge of the line..as dark as the control line, and then last night's test was light again. So, I'm hoping that meant I am going to O. Dh and I did bd last night and i'm going to take another opk tonight and see what it shows. We might bd again tonight. I do hope I will see a temp rise soon, that way I know that I did O.
I have been doing well about not thinking and stressing too much about ttc. But this month is a year from my miscarriage and I think it's got me really down and just really want to become pregnant. Dh said he wants to try one more month if it doesn't happen this month because I was sick and stressed this month. *sigh* And if nothing next month, we try Clomid.
It's so hard to think how easy it was to get pregnant last year the first month we tried. It was amazing how quickly it happened. Now it's taking forever and I just don't know what to think anymore. I have started working out again to get in better shape. We have a treadmaster and works you out really well, and I hope to lose a few pounds before the end of the month. My goal is 15-20 pounds by the end of the year. I guess I will just focus on that for now and not focus on ttc anymore. I mean we will try but my goal right now is to get in good shape and be healthy.
ok, so I got a temp rise today! was pretty shocked to find that out this morning. Well, shocked, surprised, and right now i'm trying to calm down and not read too much into it. Dh and I bd two night in a row after my "half positive" opk. If my temp rises again tomorrow, then i'm pretty sure it was a real positive opk. Now today will be long because I want to take my temp already for tomorrow and see what it is. I hope it just not an erratic temp and drop tomorrow. That will disappoint me for sure. But, I'm going to try real hard today and just be relaxed and not expect anything. In the back of mind though...i'm really hoping it stays high!!
I don't know what's going on with my body this month. It just frustrates the heck out of me. Dh and I are going to try Clomid this next cycle. I hope it works. But, I don't expect it to with they everything is going right now. I have no idea if i'm even going to have AF start soon or not. I might need to take prometrium again. AAARRRRGGG!!! It's hard to keep my head up and keep trying! I just don't know what to do anymore
