I did bbt's for 2 years. Never got preg. I was told I had pcos, was put on glucophos(sp). After a few months of it making me sick  things getting worse I got a 2nd & 3rd opinion. both disagreed w/ my Dr. I changed drs. New Dr put me through alot of test. after everything came back normal. He tried clomid for 8 months. it didnt work. he was down to endemetrios. He sent me to the specialist. I had the surgery to removed it in Nov.  It comes back after 8 mts- 1 yr.  got preg naturally in January. MC was April 2( 12 wks). My water broke.  No DNC thank God. cycle went right back to normal. Dr made me wait 1 mth before we could try again. Timing it with strips, bbts, & US still didnt work after 3 months of trying. This month we went for the shots. Gonal F & ovdrial. U r right about the false +.

I will find out one Sept 1st. it seems like forever away.  they wont bring me in for the b/t until i have a +hpt. its aggervating but i understand the are tryingto help. i thought 1 hour was a good ways off. i would suggest that u bring any test u have had done w/ u. they will ask for all of that. I wish u the best of luck. maybe it will be good news.

I will tell u my hopes are high this month. i developed folicals faster the expected. ( at least 8) only 1 was fully mature 2 days prior to the iui. My sc was 59 million w/ 100% modality. I wanted to kiss the hubby when they told me that.

Its hard because i have to smile when i see my belly buddies ( 2 other teachers i work with were all due with aweek of me.) u/s pics. i am happy for them but it also make me think ofhe baby i lost.

Yes i have had the IUI recently. the 18th of the month. it wasnt that bad. the hardest part was the shots an blood drawls leading up to it. I did the Iui with the specialist. IF i were u i ould go to the specialist.

It is good hear that u r a teach. I am glad u love your job. I am sure there ar tims when it is hard for u though. seeing that parent who doesnt care.

I am glad i found this sight. it is nice tobe able to talk to other women like me who know how i feel.

My vote is take a break, go see the RE. I think it will be good and if you want to do IUI, you can next month. Let your body rest, and in the meantime, get another opinion. Also, if they do tests, they will see you as you are, without drugs, so there's a better baseline to determine what's best.

I uploaded a picture in my profile I want you to see because I know you are so sad today. It's a painting I did two cycles ago. It was a time when I felt so frustrated and alone. Why couldn't my turn come? Why could I see all potential but no egg stopped for me? I was packed on the shoreline...waiting for my miracle.
But the dawn arrived, and then my turn came. So will yours... never give up.

Well since you have to give a decision tomorrow I say go for another month. And if you do I will too!!  We will do this together. We know we can get pregnant and carry a child. So we can do it again. This whole process is so hard but I'm not ready to let go yet. Let me know what you decide :)

Thank you!!  I'm right with you. I've been crying all day too. This is so hard. I guess the only hope I have right now is I missed my + or I haven't yet. But I'm done testing. I think opk are evil :).  After I calm down I'll probably try one more month. We will see. Hope you have a better day too. Let's keep each other posted :)

I'm sorry you are having a bad morning.  I'm having a horrible one.  I was so excited about the IUI this month but never getting a + opk doesn't help.  I might have to stop this all.  I can't keep doing this.  It's such an emotional roller coaster.  Hopefully you'll stick with this and do the IUI.  The good thing is you keep ovulating so you'll do fine with the IUI.  I ovulated my first month, then got a + opk the 2nd round but got the cyst so I didn't ovulate and well this time never got a positive.  So hard.  I hope your day gets better.

Wow you're so fast!! Thank you so much for everything! I really feel like we've walked this path together, and I know you will have your turn soon too. I KNOW it. I really thought you'd catch the egg before me... so yours must be right around the corner. I'm sending you a big hug.

I know I'm curious how it's all going to go too :-)  I'm still waiting on my + opk.  I was hoping for today but hopefully i'll get it tomorrow :-)  Then I'll call the dr and they will schedule when I need to bring in DH's specimen the next day.  I'll drop it off and they'll do a wash of the sperm and weed out any bad ones and then I get another time like an hour later of when I need to go in for the insemination.  I'm looking forward to it.  Just like you we know we can get pregnant so I'm all for just that little extra help :-)  I'll keep you posted.

Hoping so much you get good results on the proges. test...what day are you on? Could be early. Wants tested on 11 and got a BFN. I'm so happy she got a BFP. What a nice feeling that someone made it to the summit. One day for us too. I'm good. My temps have been at 99.1 for three days in a row, but I had spotting on DPO 6-8... I'm starting to wonder 'what's going on with my body.' Implantation seems too good to be true. My DH was on his way to Brazil to see his grandparents (i told you about them) and his grandfather died while DH was on the flight. I'm sad because as I said, I wanted to give his grandparents a gift of a great-grandchild before they passed.  He had lived a full life. Makes you think about the circle of life...maybe he'll help me move along?

Thanks for the info :-)  I guess I've never called it a RE but I know I don't go to my OB/GYN anymore.  I figured this is a good way for us to go.  I'd definitely talk to your dr about it.  I wasn't quite sure what it was all about but I think this is a good thing for us.  I really hope it works.  So we'll see.  Well have a great weekend.

Yes I definitely think we're in the same boat.  I do feel deep inside I'm suppose to have another baby.  I agree I feel so blessed with my daughter and love her so much but I know we're suppose to have another one.  I talked about it with my well this might sound stupid but what's an RE?  It's not my doctor because I now go to a fertility specialist so that's who'll be doing the IUI.  I think she had mixed reaction to it but once I said this has added stress to us and the performance anxiety my DH has had she agreed this would be really a good way for us to go.  So I'm looking forward to it.  So once I get my + opk I'll call to make an appt to go in the next day.  So at least I get alittle heads up.  I was nervous I had to go in right then and there.  So I'm very positive on this.

Thank you for checking in.  I've been good.  I'm looking forward to this month.  I'm just waiting for my +opk and then I can set up the IUI.  I'm looking forward to it all.  I know deep down I'm suppose to have another child so until I'm told differently I'm gonna keep positive :-)  This whole process is so hard.  My IUI is going to be about $160 out of pocket to me.  I figured I'd rather do that considering my u/s each month cost $130.  So I hope it works.  I hope things are going well with you.  I read that maybe your drop in temp was from tylenol.  So hopefully you'll get your BFP :-)  take care and thanks for checking in.

Thanks for the magic dust! Your history is unbelievable. I can't BELIEVE they would have rec. a hyster. at that age, no cancer, nothing! Thank god you didn't listen... your DS is a miracle. I'm sorry this new dr hasn't turned out to be of much help. A change in jobs, a change in drs... maybe you're about to decide to go through a real transition. Could be helpful...

Hi there.  Hope you're enjoying your vacation.  Sorry your results didn't come back how you thought.  But you never know things can still happen and you could be pregnant.  I'm hoping the month end with good news for you :-)  With my cyst I have to take this month off which might be a nice break.  No pressure this month :-)  Well hope all is going well.

Just a quick note to say hi! hello, thank you for enquiring-I went for my scan ready to start 2nd ivf on 2nd july only for them to find a cyst caused by damn clomid so we can't procede for at least 3 weeks. Been put on the bc pill will  collapse it like it did last time, don' t know why the dr put me back on clomid when it gave me a cyst last time aswell, we had to delay our first ivf then. Anyway all being well can start meds 3 week in july when i get bleed. Its been a rollercoaster, just got back from spain taking my beloved dads ashes home, his last wish. hope you are well, how are things your end? take care lots love melissax

Hi - Thanks for the update. I've had a lot of CM at the beginning of this cycle too..hmmm... yours might be from your HSG though, don't they use lubricants for the procedure? Good luck with the blood tests!
