    @hardtoconcentrate: @proudcatlady:  Thanks lovelies! XO

    ROLL   CALL!

    Cycles/months trying:  I think this is our 23rd cycle. This makes 25 months.

    Current CD/DPO:  CD 6

    Chart (if you have one):  http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/yellowclover

    Any known issues?  PCOS

    ETA: FOR FUN: What’s your favorite holiday and why? This is a hard one. I love Halloween because it’s the day before my bday, so growing up it was like having two holiday’s back to back and I loved getting dressed up for CANDY! BUT, I also love Thanksgiving and Christmas because of the time spent with family.

    @hardtoconcentrate:  Thanks Lady! I like the encouraging subject of this new thread 🙂

    Here we go:

    ROLL   CALL

    Cycles/months trying:  Cycle 9, almost 10 months trying

    Current CD/DPO:  CD20

    Chart (if you have one):    http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/proudcatlady 

    Any known issues?  Well, I had a short LP for a few months but in the past 2 cycles they seem to be getting longer (13 days in the last cycle and 10 days before that)

     Supplements/medications:  OMG what dont I take? Pre natal, vitamin B6, b complex, EPO (pre O), vitex agnus casuts, herbal medicine, acupuncture

    Next steps? Going to get my tubes checked to see if there’s any blockeage and then after that I’m checking in with a new specialist (bc the first one I met SUCKED – I wanted to punch her)!

     FOR FUN: What’s your favorite holiday and why? Hmmm When i was REALLY little it was x-mas bc of all the presents. Then as I was growing up it was Easter as it’s a big deal in Brazil and there’s chocolate EVERYWHERE… and plus my mum used to do this super fun egg hunt. But in the US it’s not as big of a deal… somehow I quickly adopted thanksgiving and really enjoy that! Now that I’m in the UK I’m not sure I have a fav anymore.. I can’t wait to have kids so xmas becomes my fave again!

    @hardtoconcentrate: & @proudcatlady:

      yeah I’ve been all over the place because I’ve been on holidays so it was a variation of an hour to 90 mins difference. But I am back at work now so for the next few months I can try be more consistent again 🙂

    Oh I played around and dropped my high pre-CD12 temps by a degree (easiest thing to do so I could change them back after :)) and FF gave me dotted CH at 12 so I am thinking that yeah the weather change and my stupid sleep patterns for those few weeks threw it all off 🙂 Thanks for replying 🙂 it was just so frustrating 🙂 thanks for helping out 🙂

    ROLL   CALL!

    Cycles/months trying:  9 cycles/months

    Current CD/DPO:  CD18 – 6 DPO (as we’ve decided on the last thread 🙂 stupid wacky temps :))

    Chart (if you have one):    http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/ShellVee/?full=1 (thou its wacky and I had to put in my own O this month)

    Any known issues?  Nope not able to get checked until a year of trying – thou I’m tempted to go in and lie a little. I have been off depo for a year now so hoping IF that was still in my system and preventing me getting KU it should be gone now 🙂

    Supplements/medications:  On pre-natals for me and menevit for DH, currently being superstitious and wearing my fertility tiki charm necklace – heck it can’t hurt and the little guy is super cute 🙂 yep I’ll try superstition before I try any more supplements – I did look into soy isoflavones and vitex but apparently that’ll be a bad idea because currently I do have a regular cycle.

    Next steps? Check out the Dr, thinking might try a naturopath and/or accupuncture during my Xmas break (2 cycles away)

    FOR FUN: What’s your favorite holiday and why?

    Christmas – it is a lowkey day for us but it is nice to have all my immediate family together 🙂 plus I love my Xmas tree 🙂

    @hardtoconcentrate:  yeah it’s a blessing and a curse 🙂 It’s wonderful to have experienced different cultures and made lots of friends, but sucks to be all over the place and have your heart split in many different ways/locations… My parents are divorced so my dad is still in Brazil (and my little half brothers) and my cousins too. But my mum, grandma, sister, and nephew are all in Florida (which is where my mum moved to after we left Brasil). I live din NJ before I moved to the UK so have a lot of close friends tehre too.. And my husband is English. So a little (or a lot) of me is everywhere!

    @proudcatlady:  it’ll be so awesome if it works for us 🙂 It has made me more positive this month – even with the crazy temping 🙂 weird I know but I feel more peaceful now. May sound really really strange but I just have this feeling that it will happen for me 🙂 and for some reason I think I’ll have a baby boy first I can even imagine exactly what he looks like – and I’ve always thought before i’d have a girl first. 

    And no I am not the type to normally put stock in superstition and that positive thinking stuff but hey if it gives me a calm and peaceful feeling for even a few weeks that is great 🙂
