Thanks ladies :) I'm so excited!! It's been over a year since the m/c and I wasn't sure this would ever happen for me again..I'm making a Dr's appt on Monday, I want to know my hcg levels and all that. I'm just SO excited!! DH keeps trying to pull me back down to earth, he's afraid that if something bad happens again, that I'll be devastated. No matter what I would be devastated, so why not enjoy every second that I have :)

I delivered the wedding cake and got the roses on, so later I'll post some more photos of it, totally finished :)

Yay Erica...I say enjoy the moments now...there will be many nervous moments throughout the next 9 months for you but yes, delight in the good news of the day and enjoy every second :)

I think I might actually test tomorrow....I'm tired of the unknown and I feel as though with a FRER I'd be safe to test 12dpo....

Wish me luck!  I'm not hopeful.....but Erica you have inspired me!!! :)

BFN for me today on a FRER...12dpo.....I am not surprised at all but it still really hurts.  My hopes of being pg. by my edd are now over......just waiting for AF now.....
Blank
758493_tn?1271614763
Dana, I can relate to how you feel today... I think we've all felt that way as EDD's approached came and went, I know I did. I set myself stupid 'deadlines' only to feel I had failed when my BFP didn't come. It was only after those dates came and went that it suddenly occured to me no-one else was expecting me to fall pregnant again by those dates... there was no 'expiry' on my BFP (well apart from my old age!!) and that I was only punishing myself.

I know I almost felt a sense of relief when I had those 'dates' behind me and started taking each month one at a time.. and as I have said many times before, with each month that went by I told myself I had worked so hard at TTC and had endured so many BFN's that my BFP was getting closer and closer every month..... all good things come to those who wait!!!!!

Honey, it will happen - I PROMISE, just hang in there. Sending you a HUGE hug x
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
Dana - sorry about the BFN.  I agree with Deb though, it's so much easier once we put those dates behind us and look to the future rather then drudging through the past.  It can take a perfectly healthy couple over a year to concieve (conceive) so don't give up!!

The BFP's are going to start rolling in.  I can feel it in my bones.
Blank
693804_tn?1304724074
Dana- I'm sorry :(  I'm at that stage right now, I want to test this week but I fear the BFN! I also put deadlines on my BFP which didn't help matters any. Like Deb, my age is my biggest concern right now. We all have to be strong and "NOT" give up. If it doesn't happen for me this month I need to brush myself off and continue to try. We all will win this battle one day soon. (((HUGS)))

773214_tn?1295138669
I seriously dont know how you girls do it.  I am ready to give up....seriously.  I just feel like it's a lost cause.  I know you all are very positive and I wish I could be that way.....I just still don't understand why things have happened like they have....

I am calling the dr. monday to make my yearly appointment.  She said we'd "discuss" things if we weren't pregnant by then....ugh...I am not thrilled we have to go there....

I am dreading this baby shower I have to go to in two weeks.  I really dont want to go, especially given recent events...but I feel i have to or I'm just being a big idiot about the whole thing....
All my gals still in the tww....good luck....seems like it's starting to pick up....just wish it were there for all of us!!!

Deb, Lori, and Bridgette...thanks for your kind words.  I guess it's good to get this day behind me...I just didn't dream it would take this long.....
Blank
663562_tn?1291135483
Dana..Sorry about the BFN. But seriously, don't give up!! We've all been at the point of giving up, I never thought it would happen again. And once all the "deadlines" are behind you you'll feel a little liberated in the way you look at ttc. No more pressure, just focusing on the future (like Bridgette said).

I'm sending you (((((((BIG HUGS)))))))

Dana, sorry about the bfn:(  I have been trying for over 8 months now so I can relate to how you feel. I figure that I am not giving up sex so I might as well keep trying! LOL
Erica, CONGRTULATIONS !!!!! I am so happy for you!!!
Blank

I haven't been here in a few days, and low and behold we get a BFP!  Congrats Erica.  I'm so happy for you.

Dana - So sorry about the BFN.  Try to stay positive.  I know it is super hard.  

I don't think Deb could have said it any better.  I think everyone of us has felt the way Dana does about the edd.  That is what is so unique about this group.  There is rarely a feeling one of us has that others have not felt.  This is an awesome support group.  I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon it.  Days when I am frustrated or just feel like crying I know I can come here to be uplifted.  Thank you all.

Bam - Thanks again for doing all this.  

I hope everyone has a great week.

Off to research this Vitex thing...

Had my CD 14 U/S.  I have 1 follicle at 1.3cm, so they are thinking I may ovulate in the next few days.  I really hope this works, I'm just so tired of the BFN's every month or two, depending on my cycles.  Like I said before, I don't want to get my hopes up- as so many times you can ovulate and not get pg either.  I have a repeat U/S 7 days after ovulation to check lining.  So, keeping my fingers crossed for good luck this month.  

Nat and Lori- hoping for your BFP'S.

Hi ladies,
Just wanted to say hi and see if I can join you on your journey to BFP... I had a m/c in June, and have been TTC again for 2 cycles now.  I am CD10 today.  I will be using OPK starting today, hopeing I can pinpoint ovulation better this month.  Good Luck to all!

Deb, I'm fine just trying not to obsess too much! It's been a long tww for me. AF is due tomorrow but the weird thing is since I o'ed early this month, if she shows then that will mean I'll have a 25 day cycle and it's normally 28. I just hope she stays away!! How are you? Sorry you didn't like the midwife, what a witch!!! I would be looking for a new one. When is your next appt, scan? I can't wait!!

Welcome Steph :)

Well, I've been trying to keep busy so I don't obsess...if that's even possible :)-  

Lori, how are you doing in this tww? Hopefully better than me...lol

Dana, hi. Anything new with you?

Mary, good luck this time. It sounds like the meds did their job! SSBD to you!

Gina- I'm not gonna test until I know she's late, can't deal with the sight of a BFN!

Mary- keeping my fingers(and everything else) crossed for youXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Steph_ - Welcome! You've come to the greatest place for support and friendship! BTW i'm Lori!

Bridgette- We "CAN" do it!!!!!!!

Deb- It's almost over!!!!! Darn TWW, theres got to be an easier way! LOL  How are you doing??

Natalie- I'm hanging by a thread!! I feel a little bloated  today so i'm afraid I might be out again this month(i'm hoping i'm not though)AF is due Thursday or Friday.

Dana- saw your mood, i'm sorry:(

Hi Ladies.  I'm at CD11 and will be starting OPK today! hopefully this will help.  How long has everyone been TTC since their M/C's?
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
Dana - sorry about the COW :(

Steph_b - you're just a few days behind me.  I'm starting OPK's today too.  I hope the OPK's help you out.  My DH and I had been TTC for 2 years and last July, we thought our prayers had finally been answered, only to m/c at 8 weeks in Aug :(  So now it's been a year since the m/c, making it 3 years total.  We have been through all the testing and have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility and DH has low morphology.

I expect to O any day now, which with being on such a high dose of Femara, I'm really scared how bad my O pains will be!  Then I enter the torture chamber.

Deb- how is everything with you??

Steph_ - good luck with the OPK's! I hope they help you to get your BFP.  I lost my son at almost 5 months back in October I have now been trying for 10 months, I got my hopes up a little this month, but now I have a feeling AF is going to show her ugly face! She's due either Thurs. or Fri. so i'm trying to prepare myself for yet another let down:(

Bridgette- I don't think I need to tell you how much i'm praying for you. Maybe we'll still be belly buddies except that you'll get your BFP first :)

Princessa- with you 100%, I hate her to!!!!

Natalie- anything yet???

Hi ladies :) Sorry I haven't been around for a few, I'm absolutely run off my feet and I'm SO tired! So, I went to the Dr. today, according to her I am 6 weeks 2 days, and she ordered hcg blood work to confirm the pregnancy. I went and got the blood work done and I have to see the Dr. again in 2 weeks. I hope I can get the results of the blood work before then, I'm a ball of nerves right now. My Dr. is treating this like a normal pregnancy, as I've only had the 1 m/c, so that's a plus. According to her, as well, my due date will be May 11th, 2010. The day before DH's Birthday, lol!

Good luck to all my ladies ttc and the ones in the tww...I've got my fingers and toes crossed for all of you!! :)
Blank
609020_tn?1285354477
Well, I think I'm officially in the tww for once in almost 2 years.  Pretty sure ovulation is today- although I'm really crampy and don't know why.  That kind of worries me- as I don't remember having this much abdominal pain with getting pregnant before.  So, like I said before- I don't want to get my hopes up.  Next u/s next week.
Blank
693804_tn?1304724074
Mary, i'm praying super extra hard for you! Do you think the cramps could be from ovulation??
Blank
609020_tn?1285354477
I'm hoping so- I read somewhere that sometimes the rupture can cause bleeding from the ovary that can cause the pain.  I hope it's nothing major- I'm paranoid about things from the last time I guess.

Mary - what dosage were you on this time?  I always have O pains when I'm on meds, so I'm praying that little eggie is dropping and sticking for you :)

773214_tn?1295138669
Steph_B....we have been ttc for 6 months....well, 5 officially according to the dr. but we sorta tried the month before so for all purposes...I am calling it six months of the NECOT.  (Never ending cycle of torture)!  Hope you don't stay in it for very long!  Do you other girls ever feel like it's all dejavu?? :) LOL...

Bridgette I hope the pain is not bad for you!

Lori and Natalie...good luck girls....!  I pray for you she stays away...

Hi ladies,
    Haven't posted for awhile because nothing is really going on with me.I am cd 8 now and have been cramping on and off.(?) Don't know what that is all about. Today is our 15 wedding anniversary! Yay!   We were going to go out but my 9 year old son has a cold and his allergies are acting up. They usually do when the weather changes. It is cold here in Michigan and all the leaves are changing colors.It is beautiful to see.
   Me and DH are still trying but not expecting much.

Hi everyone! Well it's cd26 for me so I should know something by tomorrow, please keep your prayers coming. I've been nauseous a few times this week but had some light cramping yesterday so I really don't know whats going to happen, I guess you can say i'm trying to prepare myself for the worst.

My last pregnancy I thought I was getting my period for a week- I had horrible cramping and then found out I was pg.  Maybe cramping combined with nausea is a good sign- I'm really hoping for you!

Selaiwa- Happy Anniversary! I'm a warm weather person, I do like when the leaves change but I just wish they would do it in 90 degree weather :)

Princessa- Thanks Sweetie!

Amanda- if she isn't here tomorrow(hopefully not) I'll probably test on Sunday.

Mary- I'm really hoping for some good news tomorrow. I only had the cramps in the morning yesterday and then they stopped. It really stinks that af and pregnancy symptoms are so much alike.

Yes it really, really stinks that the symptoms are the same, i don't get cramps, but i just had some in my left side, but since i've been out of whack since the miscarriae, who knows is its af or pg symptoms.

Good luck . SSBD

Princessa, you can call me Lori :)  I'm sitting here fearing tomorrow, i've had no more cramps and I just can't tell either way. You would think I would have a clue after 6 pregnancies!!LOL   When are you due for AF to hopefully not show?? My fingers are crossed for you!

991222_tn?1333994333
Well so far not O according to the OPK.  I Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday afternoons.  I think CD13 today So I'm thinking anytime now... My cycle was a little longer last month 32 days instead of 28 so I'm not sure.  I figured I would just test until I got the :).  

Lori- I hope you have some great news to share in a few days!

Steph_b - it's not uncommon for your cycle to get out of wack after a m/c.  Which can make pinpointing O a nightmare!  What was your typical cycle length before your loss?

Lori and princessa - fingers and toes tripled crossed!!!

Im due for AF on monday the 21st and hopefully she is MIA. Woke up with you in my thoughts and i have my fingers and toes crossed. She just needs to stay away!!!!!!

Now I don't have dreams, or atleast i don't ever remember dreaming. I had the stranges dream last night. In my dream i found out i was pregnant and i was going to my gynecologist for my check up etc...  In my dream i was really big, i mean my pregnancy was quite far along. I hope thats a good sign.

Well SSBD to all of you that are just days away from AF like me and Lori!!

Ladies-  I am sending you lots of baby dust! '
  My son is feeling better and his temps are normal now. Gosh it is scary when your kid gets sick because of all the stuff going on nowadays! Thanks Bridgette and Lori for the congrats on our Anniversary. My DH also had his 40th birthday so now he can't say he is in his 30's and married to someone in her 40"s. I've been teasing him about starting his midlife crisis . ( LOL) Even though we look the same age, he has been teasing me about being older than him for awhile now so he deserves all he can get!!! Yeah I'm a cougar!! HA HA!!  
  Erica and Deb-  I can't wait to see your first ultrasound pictures. I hope that you are feeling well. Rub your belly for me! Yeah,I am one of those women who just love to see pregnant ladies. Gosh I loved being pregnant so much!! I think the best part was feeling the baby move around. I loved breastfeeding after the baby was born.I breastfed my boys for 1& 1/2 years!! It was so convenient,I never had to wake up in the middle of the night holding a crying baby and try to make a bottle at the same time.And not to mention having larger breasts made my waist look alot smaller!(LOL)
Blank
924332_tn?1284577518
That is so cool. My bf makes fun of me all the time. I'm 29 and he's 24. He will be 25 next month. so i'm 4yrs 7 months older than he is, lol. I guess im a cougar too! We have been together over a year and he hid his age from me at first lol. But people always tell us we look the same age and some even think he's older which definitely helps my ego, lol.

Hi everyone! Well AF hasn't arrived as of yet! I feel pretty nauseous, shaky and warm, not to sure what thats all about???? I'm trying so hard not to get my hopes up so they don't end up shattered, boy is it hard! LOL  I think i'm going to give it till Sunday and if she's not here i'll test, i'm soooo afraid of a BFN I would just rather her show or not show. Thank you all for your support and prayers!

Jenn- it's so nice to have you back!

Steph_ - good luck! I hope you get your :) real soon!

Bridgette- thanks for being by my side!

Rossie-  so far so good! I'm a nervous wreck over here! LOL  I have everything crossed for you hun!!!!

My cycle has always been 28 days and even after the mc was 28 first cycle was 28 days after D&c and second cycle was 28 days after 1st cycle and the 3rd was 31 days which was odd for me.  So now I don't know what to expect for this cycle.  I bought 2 packs of OPK incase I need more than the 7 for this cycle.  Is testing 1 time a day enough?
Blank

Steph - was it possible in your 31 day cycle you had some sort of stress or sickness that was going on that would make you O a few days late?  But then again, it is important to remember that you will not necesarily O on the exact same day every single cycle (henceforth, needing the OPK's).  I think 1 time a day is sufficient especially when you have such a regular cycle.  Hang in there dear, and hope you see your smiley face soon!  I'm waiting for mine as well :)

Being on meds tend to make my cycle run longer, so I'm not surprised I haven't seen a + OPK yet.  I'm guessing around CD16 . . . but DH is "on call" nonetheless.  I'm really hoping I O Sat or Sun so if the pain is bad, at least I'll be at home.

Lori - we all know how hard it is to be in your position right now.  The thought of that BFN is terrifying.  Not only are you in the torture chamber, but sounds like you are facing the Iron Maiden.

Thanks Bam- All of your advice is appriciated.  I'm hoping to O over the weekend as well.  It makes timing much easier!  I was having Allergy issues the past few weeks and I think that may have thrown my cycle off a few days.  I guess time and the :) will let me know!

Lori- I can only imagine how you feel.  I'm anxious for you :)

Ohhh come on Lori!!  I've got everything crossed for you.

Any word on Latrice?  She probably has no idea who I am, but she got her BFP when I first stumbled upon this place.

Steph - Good luck with the OPKing, just remember to keep BDing.  I think you are a few days ahead of me, and I am already on my husband reminding him we have "date" nights coming up!  From days 10-20 are eligible date nights.   LOL.  He doesn't mind, and it can't hurt!  I pretty much ovulate around day 14 give or take a day.

Lori, Sorry about Af arriving. :(
Rossie,  I hope that Af stays away!
  I am noticing a HUGE improvement in the amount of fertile cm this cycle.As you might already know,I started taking the evening primrose oil supplements last month.I noticed a difference then but now I actually have watery EW cm!! I haven't had good fertile cm for 7 months now.I also have noticed a big increase in my sex drive.DH loves that part!!! (LOL) I am cd12 and my temps dropped really low today.I think that I might O soon. Well I'm off to buy some OPK's.
Congrats Bridgette to the TWW!! Since your DH is 10 years older I think that would make him your Sugar Daddy!! (LOL)

Where do you get this Evening promise oil?  I think I would like to give it a try.

I STILLL haven't o'd... I think I have lost hope for this cycle.  CD16 now, I will use mu OPK again tonight, but it seems late for me of O at this point.  I've come to the conclusion that my body is just messed up after the m/c...

I get my Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) at our local GNC store.  You can read the post about Vitamins that I just bumped this weekend and it tells all about it.  I have noticed the cycles that I take I have at least watery CM (otherwise I have none).

Selaiwa - how much do you take?  And do you take something else during your LP?

Hi everyone! Grinning and bearing this cycle, i'm half way through it!

Latrice- Congratulations! She's beautiful and what a pretty name!

Rossie- Thanks sweetie! I have it all crossed for you! I hope since she's here with me she'll stay the heck away from you(i'll hold her hostage!)

Bridgette- I'm with you every step of the way during your TWW!! I have a really strong feeling that it's gonna be worth it!

Selaiwa- I hope the EPO works wonders for you!

I take 3000 mg of the EPO  along with a prenatal vitamin,400 mg extra folic acid, and 1000 mg B12 .I  just went to Meijer's grocery store and bought some Vitex and an OPK. Surprisingly the Vitex was only $6.00 !!  I figure I will give it a shot my next cycle. It says that you are supposed to take it 2-3 x's a day for a total of 1200 mg from AF till + ovulation. Now I just have to wait a few hours w/o drinking anything so that I can take my OPK. I wonder if I will O early this month.With the watery to EW cm and my big temp drop I should O in a couple of days.

Just wanted to update everyone a little bit. I went to the health dept today and my approximate due date is June 1st, 2010 which I think is a little off. But I applied for insurance through the state today so once I get my card and make a doc appt I will let you all know when I get a better due date. According to the health dept I will be 4 weeks the 24th of this month.

So today should be AF day but.....my temp has been rising for the past three days which usually doesn't happen. I also had a dip on 9dpo so that makes me think it was implantation because since then the temps have just been rising up.  I'm very hopeful that this is my first sign of pregnancy.  I keep getting very faint twinges in the bottom of my stomach which makes me think AF might show up so i keep runing to the washroom (gosh i hope not) but why would my temp go up if i'm not pregnant?  Please GOD let this be our time.  If anyone has any insight into my chart please let me know either way...thanks.

Hi Ladies,

Ok, so AF still hasn't showed this morning, however my temp droped alot....I need some advise...does this mean AF is just around the corner?  I'm driving myself crazy about this...I've never had a temp rise that high and then fall like that....what could it mean?  Any insight would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks all!

I just had a quick peek at your chart... your last temp is still way above the coverline and I know it is lower than the others but unless its a trend I wouldn't worry too much. If you want to have a look at my chart in August please feel free (the month I got my BFP) my temps were all over the place with lots of dips and spikes. Good luck = fingers crossed for you :)

wow, you girls are great!  Thanks so much for the positive feed back.

tinkerbell101- for some reason i can't see you OV tracker, maybe once you accept my friend request i might be able to see it.  Thanks again for the positive feed back.

Rossie- I'm too scared to take the test right now...lol.  If nothing has happend by tonight i will buy a test on my way home and do it tomorrow morning.  I just don't want to be disapointed that's why i'm waiting so long.

I've been feelling these light twinges in my lower abdomen...i keep trying to tell myself it might be my uterus expanding to make room for the baby....is that possible or am i just grasping at straws???

I'm feeling more and more positive as i read about early symptoms of prengnancy on the net as I have or am having some of them such as gas last week, AF late, temp rise, ligament pulling in abdomen, lower back ache, tieredness..i hope i'm not setting myself up for disapointment.  I'll probably test tomorrow morning if AF still hasn't showed instead of playing these mind games with myself.  But i'm so scared of seeing a negative...that would break my heart.
Blank
924332_tn?1284577518
I know how you feel honey!! But keep positive. I really think this may be it for you. I'm rooting for you and make sure you dont forget to tell us in the am..Don't forget the new fourm is the cycle buddies - sept 21. You can find it if you go to my page.

803467_tn?1341938306
Ok Ladies, curiousity got the best of me...lol.  I did a test but it came out negative and still no sign of AF, maybe it's because i didn't use first morning urine and the test isn't sensitive enough...it's a cheap brand....anyways, now i'm really confused! :(  I have one more test, more expensive type,  that i'm keeping and ony going to do if AF doesn't show by Saturday.

Baby dust to all!

Is your cycle usually pretty regular?? Personally I would give it a few more days and then test, we all know how it feels to see a BFN! I just went through that, af was a day late and I had myself all excited so I bought a test and took it the following morning, BFN immediately followed by af...GRRRR!!!!!! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. When you post next, post on the thread that says Sept 21, thats the newest, Bam updates it every week.........Lori
