Nope, no +opk yet... I haven't tested today yet... I"m hoping today it the day too! It's relieving to know that you got it later your 2nd cycle as well. We are bding every other night... my plan was to bd every other until the +opk of course and then bd a couple nights in a row. I hope it works! I think bding every other day isn't so bad, and less stressful. The first round I was adamant about bding like a week straight and that was hard! My Dr said every other too... still have my back ache that isn't as intense as it was a few days ago. I've read so much that an HSG isn't as painful as anyone expects, so hang in there, I think it's more of that uncomfortable feeling than pain, which you can totally handle! PLLLLLEEEAAASSSEEE let me know how everything goes too and enjoy your weekend!

Just a quick note to say hi! How are you doing? Did you have your HSG this week? My AF arrived two night ago so I'll be starting round 3 on saturday. Still a little stuck on my last bummer round... but trying to move past it. My dr said I have a few more tries on clomid before she would want me to consult an RE. I think I'll do this round and then take a month off if nothing happens. DH will be away two weeks in August, right at my O... so LETS GO JULY!!!!! Have a great weekend. :)

Hey there.  I'm doing better today.  Not much I can do.  Somehow I really have to not stress about it.  The problem is I'm not quite sure how to do that :-)  I'm hoping to take better care of myself these next few weeks and hope that helps.  How are you doing?  Did you start Clomid again?  You are right.  Our time will come soon :-)

Hi - My temp started to drop this a.m.... so there this one goes. Thanks for all your support across cyber space:) I'm okay. Just trying to deal with it and move forward, without too much self-punishment.

Sorry to hear AF showed up but at least now you can move on to the next step with your new doctor.  I hope this month goes well for you :-)  I'm on CD 36, 18dpo, no AF and another BFN.  So I'm feeling bummed today.  I'll go in for bloodwork tomorrow.   So I guess time will tell.

Hey - I just saw what you posted. :( I'm so sorry... I knew you had a pretty good idea, but I was hopeful after I got your note about your temps. I'm sorry they tricked you this time around. I know your next cycle will have better luck with your new doc and everything. Plus tests to tell you what's up. I hope you're okay tonight... thinking of you :)

Hello pretty lady! I'm excited to be on CD 13 now... I don't feel any symptoms this round, nothin'... some achyness on the left side of my stomach but it never lasts long and isn't often. I dunno... I'm just going with the flow this time around and not being overly anxious and hanging on every ache, pain, twinge, etc... I've totally given up on taking my temps, I haven't been sleeping well and waking up at different times (or forgetting to do it) so I'm just forgetting it! Hubs and I are bding every other until I get my positive OPK, which I'm assuming will be next Thursday. I'm glad that you got AF and are getting ready for your HSG, progression is awesome and I'm hoping you get answers!!

Well sounds like we are in the same boat. This is so hard. I thought for sure since I got the smiley face I would O. Then not having af show I thought wow I could be pregnant. But with no af and a BFN now I'm worried I didn't O which means I'll have to go on provera again and I'm taking a step backwards :(. Well we have similar symptoms so keep me posted on how you are doing. I'll go get a blood test Monday if no af.

Hi - I've started having all sorts of symptoms today and it's made me very worried. I went pee and when I wiped I saw a very faint pink streak on the t.p. And I have been exhausted -- took a three hour nap just now. I also feel hot and feverish. Yesterday i was thinking, why don't I have implantation bleeding, and today the tiny sight of blood makes me worried. Oh oh oh. Ugh. Another roller coaster ride????

Hi! I just was writing you on the thread... you'll see my little bit of news of symptoms. But it's mostly just those: lots of CM, high temps, really sore nipples since yesterday, loose bm's for two days now, and pretty great mood. In a way, there is just a feeling in my uterus... not pinching or cramping like last time... almost still and full and stable. Almost normal, but just more present. It's hard to explain. I hope I'll be able to test next week. I'm really optimistic, but also trying to remain neutral and just prepare myself for another round. Either I am or I'm not and I'll find out soon. Yes... a peaceful feeling just surrounds me...
How are you? I'm glad you feel like there is a chance for this cycle...it seemed like you gave up last week, but your AF hasn't come, so... ????!!!!

Sounds good (new doc) -- I like how she's 'getting down to business'. When you say "she's not ready to give up on this month' did she do a blood test or would it still be too early for that? It will be hard to stop charting. I had one doctor tell me that last fall but I just couldn't help it... I was too interested every morning :) On the other hand, I understand it can add stress. Will your insurance cover all these tests? Did she want to do an U/S as well?

Completely understand how you feel as I miscarried after ivf back in april. Its horrible as you know, because you can't do a thing about it and feel all the blood etc(sorry to be so blunt) just slipping away. I know it may happen again, I also know it may NOT happen again, trying to be positive and I will rest  and chill and do everything by the book after transfer and if the worse happens I will know I did everything I could(before I lifted and rushed around maybe too much) keep me updated with your progress, baby dust and love melissax

Hey thre - I'm so so sorry. I see the temp dipping. I hate that time just stretches out and with all the confusion and frustration, it's really one of the most difficult trials to go through. I am glad you get to go in to the doctor this afternoon and get a new opinion. Let me know how it goes. Big hug today...

hey there.  Sorry your temps went down today.  i don't take my temp so I'm not sure how it all works but can't it be thrown off if you woke up during the night or something?  That's mainly why I don't do it.  I wake up too much during the night.  Well I hope it doesn't mean anything and that you'll still get your BFP this week.  I have felt a few different things lately.  Today I felt light headed and i feel very bloated.  I definitely feel different this month than last month but it could also be because I have more hormones in me.  So who knows.  I have been extremely emotional lately.  The last time I felt like anything could trigger me to cry was when I was pregnant.  So who knows.  But once again it could be the hormones.  I want to test now but I'll wait until AF is late.

I'm sorry you are feeling AF coming. This process tests every ounce of strength and patience and faith we have. Every month that I have to begin again, I go through the same rollercoaster -- I know you must feel pretty deflated today. Big hug... I wouldn't give up yet, but I also trust my intuition so I know what you mean when you say you can 'feel it' coming. I'll hold on to the hope for this month for you though... xoxo

Hey there -- I'm feeling really great today. Like I posted on the thread, high energy and hopeful. The only 'symptoms' I'm having are lots of lotion-y CM; restless sleep; hungry. I had a few twinges/pinching in uterus yesterday afternoon, but nothing since. I'm not having the bizarre cramps in my thighs and bones like I did last clomid cycle. I'm glad, b/c it was really strange. I know it's too early for me to feel optimistic, which means it's too early for you to feel doubtful! Let's just wait and see ;)

(2 of 2) tried to do the girl selection thing by having BD 3-4 days out (knowing sperm can live up to 5 days)... when we weren't getting preg. we just had to give up that strict policy and BD as much as possible. But I still think a girl is coming. I said it to you b/c of your delay in temp shift and then your one night of DS not allowing BD... I SO HOPE we both get our little ladies this month. I've already made a bunch of girl clothes, so if there's a boy... I'll have to do some re-arranging!!!

Hi - I have the exact same feelings --  nothing much yet, a little cramping here and there but doesn't last long (10 min), a little CM, a little fatigue... but nothing yet. I'm reminded of the TWW impatience! The theory about sex selection is: sperm carrying the Y chrom. (boys) are sprinters -- they out swim girls 2 to 1, but they die much more quickly. Sperm carrying the X chrom. (girls) move slower but live double the time... so if you BD 24 hours before O (lets say) and the egg is released, most likely girls will only be left to get to the egg. But if you O and just had BD, the boys will probably beat the ladies. They say if you want a girl to time accordingly. We REALLY want a girl and just 'know' that we will have her, so for the first few months (before clomid and all) we -

I say it's a girl b/c of your BD timing.You know that whole theory, right? Looking at your chart it just seemed like you would have had the marathoners vs the sprinters making it to your O. We REALLY REALLY want a girl as well. I feel her with us... if you know what I mean... and so I would be pretty shocked if we got a boy. I feel her closer than ever, so I know it's coming soon.... I just hope it's REALLY soon :) Happy friday to you. Are you away again on business? Will you be coming home over the weekend? I remember you didn't like that last month very much. Hopefully it makes the time go by faster though!

Hi there. I feel like I have every symptom and am googling everything :). I think alot is in my head. This wait us hard. I have had some cramping and I've had alot more cm this month than last after ovulation. I thought you were suppose to get dryer. So I'm hoping that's a good sign. I did have some cm with brownish in it. I hope that was implantation :). But it was at 5dpo so might be too early. I feel very crampy today. Not af cramps but around my stomach and boobs. So who knows. I really didn't feel anything last month during tww so who knows. I'll keep you posted. I plan on testing next Friday if af hasn't come. How are you feeling?  You are in the tww now. Well good luck. And keep me posted :)

Just wanted to say I too have a son, Alfie who is nearly 2. He was an absolute miracle as I hadnt had periods for years  and didnt when he was conceived, dr said I threw out an egg at random and it was fertilized. So I know I can get pregnant or carry a pregnancy, don't think that miracle will happen twice thus using fertility aids(ivf etc) now. Again similar to you, I have miscarried-so here's to this year giving us both some good news. let you know how all goes beginning july timex

You're right about expense, all treatments cost so much, we get no help towards ivf as I am over 39. Each cycle £5000+ so this will def be our last and do hope so much it works. Good luck with all your tries, conceiving is NO easy feat and when I read about young girls that pop them out like pills, it seams so unfair to all of us that try for years. Keep me posted with your progress and I will too.best wishes melissax

hello thankyou for thinking of me, We're doing ok. Actually just posted a new comment on the fertility site. We've been trying for last 6 weeks which I know is no time but when you're older(40) and had been trying for ages previously its a long time.Anyway been to see gynacologist at clinic and he's happy for us to have another bash at ivf, as it did work I just unfortunetly miscarried. So when get af in July we will be going down that road once more. How about you?how are things for you guys?xx melissa

Hey! Glad to hear your temp is creeping up. Mine actually is up this morning just right at the cover line, so I'll be interested to see if I get another +opk today, or that was it and O came... I hear you about 'DH feeling like meat' :) It always happens around BD5... like 'really, again???'
