what the ****???  i checked my cm again today just 'cause, and you know what i find?  eggwhite.  AGAIN.  not only that, but cervix was OPEN!  i've NEVER felt it open.  this better be it, d a m n it!  i've read that anovulatory cycles can have all this crazy stuff happen, too, because i could be releasing enough estrogen to play tricks with my fertile signs.  i had better see a temp rise tomorrow.  i'm sick of my body being stupid, lol.  i know you girls have got to relate on that one.  *sigh*  i'm sorry i'm going on and on.  i'm really self-centered right now.  i hope everyone else is less irritable than i am right now.  :D

Leighanne- Congrats on making it to 13 weeks! Just wait until you feel that baby move, it's amazing! :)
Not too much going on here, just hangin' out in the 2ww! Thank you all for the warm welcome back! Your all too sweet! :) I made an appointment to go and get my progesterone checked because I was scared I didn't ovulate, but it just happened so late this time, and I can clearly see on my bbt chart that I did ovulate on CD 23 when usually it's CD 16 or 18 at the latest. So, do you all think I should still go and get it checked? I also have progesterone suppositories left, and I was going to take them after ovulation, but I think i'll just wait until I get my +ve, if it ever happens again!!!! Ok, so where is everyone at right now in their cycle?
Candie- I'm sooo sorry af showed! Hopefully the fertilaid will do the trick for you this month!!!! I've looked into taking that so many times, but then I just resorted to the clomid. I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya! :)
Stacey- I sent you a note, but your pic of your dog is adorable! :) Where are you at in your 2ww? I hope this time is it girl!!!
mommyin09- I agree, seeing another doctor when you don't have to seems silly! But I'm so confused! I thought your ob was going to do 3 rounds of clomid, and then do iui next! I think they should've been doing iui the whole time you were on clomid, because clomid can make your CM very hostile and hard for sperm to swim through. I could tell it affected my CM a little, because now that i'm  not taking anything, I started getting ewcm like 6 days before my ovulation. We bd'd the whole time I had ewcm, 1 to 2 times a day, so hopefully they stayed strong and hung out until my egg got there! :) We actually didn't bd the day before ovulation, but I wasn't sure it was ever going to come, and of course it came the next day! But at least I have an idea of when i'll ovulate on a regular cycle, ya know?
Good luck to all in their 2ww! Hopefully Leighanne is right, and this will be our lucky thread!! :)

Vortex - CONGRATS!!!!!!!!  I read the other thread and saw the awesome news!!  Thank you for bringing such good news to us.   I am really really happy for you and dh!!!  That is so great!

Leighanne - It sounds like everything is still progressing perfectly for you.  Congrats and I love your pics - what a cute little bump you have.

Luvkayln - Welcome back!  It's nice to see you on the thread again.  You were missed!  It sounds like you had some great bd at the right time!  I am somewhere in my second week of the tww (I have lost track) but just don't think this is it.  I also O'd late this cycle.  I believe it was later than I thought - day 23 or 24.  So I have just assumed this is not it.  I will try our last round of IUI next cycle.

Candie - Sorry about af.  She is so annoying.  I hope the Fertilaid works for you.  I'm glad you are trying something new to get a little extra help.

Mommyin09 - So sorry about af...that does s u c k a lot.  So sorry.  And it is also too bad that you have to wait a couple of months for an appt.  I guess you will probably move to iui??  Enjoy a few months off.  It really is good for the mind and body.  I have really enjoyed myself this month - maybe a little too much :)

The good news for me, as some of you may have seen, is that dh and I are the proud parents of fur baby Honey!  (pic is posted)  We have gone through a thorough adoption process with a  Golden Retriever rescue organization and the timing was perfect.  Honey was "surrendered" by her owner just as we applied and they felt she would be a great fit for us.  She is just over 2 years old and was alone for 12 hours a day in an apartment.  She is 95lbs and should be 65lbs so we have a lot of work to do to get the weight off.  She will definitely keep me from obsessing over ttc since I will be walking her a couple of hours every day!!  She is still in foster care and we officially get her next Monday.  Yippee!
299260 tn?1304219705
Stacey:  I'm really excited for you !  Honey will bring so much love :)

Luvkayln:  My ob only did 3 cycles of clomid.  The fertility doctor will most likely do the iui with clomid.  My ob doesn't do iui.  That's why she's referred me on.  I didn't realize clomid makes your cm hostile! Hmmm...  Funny how we keep learning.  Well, I'm glad I won't get an appt for a little bit 'cause I'm ready to try a few natural cycles.  There's really no reason why we're not getting that BFP, so you never know; right?!   I'm glad you saw that temp shift & know that you O'd !  Sounds like you covered your bases, too :-)

Leighanne:  Congrats !  That's great news :-)  I sure hope you are right that third time's a charm !

Candie:  We're in the same boat & now we're cycle buddies :)  

Arlotheslug:  That's great that your appt. went well.  Are you gonna cancel your girls weekend ?  It would be hard to not drink & not be able to explain why... for me anyway ! :)  

unlaced:  You may have posted on the other thread, but when does dh return?  Sorry your body's not cooperating with his schedule !  That s u c k s, huh!?  
514585 tn?1328743613
just letting you all know that i have found the new thread....but i am going to go to the old one so i can catch up....i got test results back, and there is nothing funky going on....no std's ect....which i knew there weren't.  all it is..is a yeast infection.  can you believe that?  all of this over a little bit of yeast.  they gave me diflucan and told me to use a paste of vaseline and desitin....and i add a bit of vagisil to numb it a bit, cause it is still sore.  what the doctor called ulcers are still sore and itchy, hoping that the itch is them healing....still no bding as it is still sore....i am completely out this cycle..lol

but i just wanted to update you all

hugs and luv and ssbd

Hi ladies, how was the day today? Thank you for all your wishes. I spoke to me RE today and also scheduled my first u/s on 9/3.

Did anyone heard from dnikki and Michelle? Good that everyone is back and we are busy again.

luvkayln:
Welcome back. Your temps definitely confirms the O and all the best for the tww. Thank you for your wishes.

unlaced:
Your temps did drop down. I know that too much stress can cause delays in Oing. One way it is good that you O during DH at home and will pray for you to O before DH takes off. That is a awful lot of time away from him and you better get the BFP and welcome him with a surprise.

Arlotheslug:
How did the injection classes go today? Are you upto speed for tomorrow's shots? All the best.

leighanne:
Congrats on the 13 weeks. Good that you are getting off of progesterone and your dad took it well. It is always good to tell everyone in the family, so that we can share everything. I am waiting for time to run away to let everybody know. My mom keeps asking me the same question for sometime now and now it is really hard to answer her :).

Candie:
I am sorry to hear that AF showed this cycle. I know it s u c k s. So what is the plan for this cycle. All the best for this cycle and wish you all come and join me and leighanne soon. DH is in bliss infact and I could not catch him. He went to the shop yesterday and bought all organic stuff (including tofu, which I didnt expect) and filled the fridge with healthy veggies and fruits. He hates grocery shopping and usually make me go.

mommyin:
Did you call the RE's office and make the appt. When are you going to go? Initially it took a long time for me to make up my mind and go to an RE. But one way it is good to see and RE and get things checked. During tww there is a long list of food I stopped eating since we went to the RE. He said no restriction, but anything that is know to increase the body's estrogen levels during tww, I resisted. Sometimes DH gets upset because he could not go to all restaurants and eat. I avoided the puzzle foods in which we dont know the ingredients and also the only meat chicken and there is a long list. I didnot try Robitussin with guaifenesin because my CM was good. So I dont have much idea about it. Wish this will work out for you this cycle.

Mamatina:
How are you?

Stacey:
Welcome back and thank you for the wishes. Honey looks great and cute and wish she gets a playmate soon in 9 months. You are almost at the end of tww and keep my fingers crossed for you. Definitely honey will make you life more enjoyable.

Joyce:
Wish you to get better soon and continue ttc. Good that it is only yeast infection and nothing serious.

Wishing you all SSBD.

Vortex ~ WOW!!!  CONGRATS!!!  You must be super excited?!?!?

Stacey ~  Yeah...fur babies are the best!  We have 3 of them.  Congrats, golden retreivers are great dogs.

Leighann ~ Congrats...13 weeks already?!?!  That's great.

luvkayln ~ Welcome back

I had my 4th IUI on Saturday, so I am 2dpiui and I am back in the 2ww.  I have been super busy trying to do all the little odds and ends around the house before we put it for sale.  I spend the weekend painting doors and washing windows.
342988 tn?1299785956
unlcaed- you better get to baby dancing, ASAP, let this be the month:)

luvkayln- does the doctor want you to be on progesterone every month after you O until you conceive?  i am so happy that yesterday was my last day on those little buggers, i mean almost 13 weeks straight of those was tough.  have you ever O'd later than normal in the past?

stacey-thank you.  i will post the new baby bump pics soon beause i think there is a big difference now.  even my fiance says it is starting to pop straight out from the sides.  he thinks it's funny but i think i am looking like a house.  and congrats on the dog.  i am going to look at her pictures when i am done typing.  Oh dogs are so much fun but some breeds are tough.  my olde english bulldog is a fresh little boy.

vortex- you will make it to the safe mark so fast.  i did not realize how fast 13 weeks went by.  i think having you ladies to keep me sane also helped alot too.  so do only you and your hubby know right now?  i did let my mom know from day one because she is my rock.  if anything went wrong, i would have to have her there for me.

michelleinhawaii- thank you.  how have you been doing?  do you already have another house in mind or did you put bids in for one?  i am in a house now but it is not mine, i rent a huge 3 bedroom house on a pond for decent money but the fiance and i are fixing a couple things on our credit reports and should be looking to get into our own home soon, or we were thinking about doing a rent to own on this since the landlord talked about it in the past.  i will have to post pics of my view of the pind out back, it is beautiful.
398038 tn?1247860603
Leighanne - Thanks for starting a new thread!  Congrats on the 13 week mark - boy how time flies!

Luvkayln - I'm glad you're back, and thanks for the good wishes!  If you are certain you O'd, then you probably wouldn't necessarily need to have your prog tested, but maybe you should just to see the # and then you'd know whether or not you should use the prog supplements next time.  

Stacey - I just have to tell you again how adorable your new baby is!  We have a yellow lab, so they are similar to the goldens, just a little more wild. :)  It's so nice to have that big lug to come home to, especially when you're a little sad.  Dog kisses always make me feel better! :)  Enjoy your walks together too.  We try to get ours out everyday and he loves it!  I'm sure Honey will be a part of the family in no time!

mommyin09 - Hello, cycle buddy!  :)  I hope going natural this time does the trick for you!

Vortex - How exciting that your u/s is only about 2 weeks away.  Then you'll have your first official "baby pictures".  I understand your worry considering all you've been through, but try to stay positive and I'm sure all of your extra prayers will get you through!  That's so sweet that DH is taking care of you already.  If anything positive can come out of our TTC struggles, it's definitely that we can all appreciate this special miracle even more.  (By the way, I'm cd 5 today if you want to update me on the tracker - thanks!)

Joyce - Glad to hear you are feeling better!  Now you can rest easy knowing that it's nothing serious.

Michelle - That's great that you had your IUI already.  Seems like you were just recovering from your lap!  Hopefully that helped you and you'll be successful soon!

Have a good day everyone!
342988 tn?1299785956
hello ladies, how is everyone today?
495055 tn?1259704550
Good Afternoon!

It is so nice to read through the posts and see all the familiar names - it is nice to have everyone back.  As for me, I think I am somewhere between the excited/freaking out/its not fair stage - have my first shot tonight.  It is a bit crazy on picking the time (has to be the same every evening) that coordinates with my and DH upcoming schedules - his family is in town now!  I think I may be over reacting ;-)  

Mommyin09:  I am still planning on doing the girls night.  I have a good friend who is coming who is also TTC  - she is going to help me lie and besides, vodka looks clear ;-)  BTW - I saw the pics of your floors and they look beautiful!

Michellein Hawaii:  Working hard!  Good luck with the house sale and the TWW - maybe the sale will be a blessing and to take your mind off of things!

Stacey:  Your puppy is so cute.  I love golden's - they are vey sweet.  

Luvkayln:  I tend to agree with Candie.  Also, it is nice to have you back.

Leighanne:  I meant to say congrats on 13 weeks on my note - Sorry!  Congrats again!

unlaced:  that ***** that your body is not cooperating.  It is so frustrating to try and figure these things out.  I will send karma.  

Candie: How are you doing?

I hope I caught everyone - if not - sorry.

Have a great afternoon!

342988 tn?1299785956
well ladies, i finally posted my 13 week baby bump pics.  it is ever so expanding and i am getting scared because it is almost not able to be hidden any more and due to my previous MC's i really do not want my work knowing yet, but look at my pics, i can probably only hold out another week before more people start questioning me.
449498 tn?1338775639
Hi girls! It feels good to be back with all of you! Thanks for the warm welcome back from everyone! :)
Leighanne- I was instructed to take progesterone 2 days after my iui's. I've never had an issure with low progesterone, I think they just told me to take them as a precautionary... This is the latest I've ever ovulated, BUT every cycle since we started trying has been medicated. The first cycle we started trying was when I got my first period in Feb. after having Kayln. So, I really don't know if it was a late ovulation or anything. Maybe I'll just ovulate later now that i'm not doing medicated cycles anymore. Hopefully this will be the month, and I won't have to worry about it. I know my progesterone is kicking in because I can feel my ovaries, and every time I'm on the suppositories I feel my ovaries.
Candie- That's great advice, thank you! I think I will go get it checked now because that will give me a heads up for next cycle if it's low this time. My RE said he wants to check in between 4dpo and 7dpo, and tomorrow is 6dpo so maybe I'll get it checked tomorrow.
mommyin09- Oh, I see! Duh! I should've known that! I think it's good that you can't get in for a couple months. Natural cycles are great, plus it'll give your ovaries a bit of a break! :) You are right, there is no reason you shouldn't be getting pregnant because everything is fine with both of you! Hopefully these natural cycles we're both trying out will do us some good! :)
Stacey- I sent you a message! :) I really do hope that getting your new baby will take some stress off ttc! I know everytime we've tried to get pregnant, we don't. And then the second I take my mind completely off of it, I wind up pregnant! I wish I could do that again now, but I know it would be impossible! Just because of everything we've been through with Kayln. I hope that little trick will work for you as well! :)
Arlotheslug & Michelle- Thanks for the welcome back! :) Arlotheslug- Good luck with your first shot tonight! Hopefully it'll be the first step in  getting that bfp! :)
Vortex- Can't wait to hear more good news from you in a couple weeks! And by the way, thanks for putting me back on the list! :)
If I missed anyone, I hope all is well with you!!!!! Happy bd'ing everyone! ( even if your not ovulating! ;) Talk to y'all later!
342988 tn?1299785956
luvkayln- that's the same reason why my RE put me on prog and baby aspirin, JUST IN CASE, he said.  the miracle cocktail.  well it worked so far but it is not fun to use.  So are you going to try using it or go completely all natural this month?
478429 tn?1265247987
Hey everyone... I know... MIA again. Sorry about that. Since being on break I thought I would have time to relax and enjoy it, RIGHT!!! I've had to deal with soooo much s h i t! I've also been spending more time with DS and DH. It kind of helps not to be on here all the time.  I think I was a bit obsessed!!

Vortex: Thanks for the note and a HUGE CONGRATS to you!! I'm so sorry I missed the big news :( Here's to a happy and healthy nine months!
leighanne: Congrats on making it to 13 weeks! Have you been able to relax a bit more now that you've hit the 2nd trimester?

Well, I had my beta yesterday... BFN. I don't know what we will do next, either keep trucking along and keep on doing the same thing or wait a few months. Maybe I will try the baby asprin thing w my progest. How does that all work?

Anyways, hope everyone is doing well, and again I am sorry for me being MIA.
Hugs, Love and SSBD to all...
342988 tn?1299785956
dnikki- welcome back.  i was wondering where you had been?  yeah i am trying to relax more.  I have another check up this upcoming Monday and can not wait to hear the heartbeat again.  did you look at my ultrasound pics?

Ladies I started taking my Geritol Complete on Friday.  It does give me a load of energy.  I hope that's a good thing.  Today I fogged my house.  Neighbor next door has dogs and I noticed some fleas popping on my legs over the weekend.  But anyway, I fogged my house, cleaned up the house afterwards, washed about 4 loads of clothes, rearranged the living room furniture and cooked (meatloaf, porkbones with gravy, fried cabbage, macaroni and cheese and cornbread).  Getting hungry anyone .  That's alot of food and it's only me and my husband at home.  I'm still full of energy.  Usually I'm feeling sluggish by now, but I feel really good.  So I can definitely say the Geritol Complete gives me a boost of energy that I haven't felt in a very long time.  I've also started taking my soy pills as of yesterday.  I was given some advice from my pharmacist that the soy pills does aid in fertility.  But to only take them on the 3rd - 7th day of cycle.  I've been taking my Folic Acid since I'm not taking the Prenatals right now.  Lastly, I drank one cup of green tea.  So I'm on a roll.  Ladies catch me if you can.

I'm feeling good about this TTC right now.  I prayed for all of us, I thanked God in advance for all of us to soon get our BFP's.  We must continue to lift each other up in prayer.  Yeah, the enemy may sometimes enter our minds that maybe children are not for us.  BUT THAT DEVIL IS A LIE FROM THE PIT OF HELL.  I DON'T RECEIVE THAT AT ALL.  HE HAS TO GIVE BACK EVERYTHING THAT HE HAS STOLEN.  SO HE HAS TO GIVE US BACK OUR FERTILITY. IN JESUS NAME.  My God says in Deuteronomy 7: 13 - 14 ... and He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and your new wine  and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flock, in the land of which He swore to your father to give you.  You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female barren among you or among your livestock.  I'm standing on the Word of God.  

After having done ALL that you can do STAND AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD.  I may get weary down the road, but today I'm not.  And should I get weary, I ask that you laides lift me up in prayer also.  Have a blessed day.

Yeah...we are a full house again. Everybody is back.

Michelle:
How are you. Thank you for the wishes. How is the house coming along. You should have had a very busy weekend with all that work I guess. One way it is good that it will help in tww.

leighanne:
Yup, only we both know the news (and ofcourse you guys) and we are keeping it a secret from friends and families. Since my RE does not want to disclose, I think I should not take a chance. I am happy on one side and keeping my fingers on the other side. 9/3 I will know atleast the location of implantation and will put me at little ease. It is hard while talking to parents and not to mention. We need to be very cautious in our conversation.

Last week we had friends at home and DH was like dont stand here, dont do that and I said stop saying anything or you will leave everybody suspicious. It is very difficult. But you got to do what you have to.

Candie:
When he cares too much, sometime I get irritated, but then remember soon that how excited he is and will keep quite. I have updated your status in our little tracker.

Arlotheslug:
How did the injection today went? Hope things were fine. I know first time is always trouble and soon DH will get used to it. I know that all the trouble we go through is worth it when it happens. Wish you all the best.

luvkayln:
Are you taking the supplements this time too? Did you go for the progesterone test? How much was the count? I am also looking forward to this u/s, since this will be my first time ever.

dnikki:
Welcome back and thank you for the wishes. Too bad that you got a BFN this cycle. It s u c k s.

Mamatina:
Wish your cycle get regularized and you get the BFP asap. Congrats on the potty training news. I know it is a big hazzle to be on diapers.

mommyin:
How are you? How is AF treating you? May be natural cycle is the one for you and giving a rest to your ovaries from clomid will give you a break.

Stacey:
How are you?
