FreckledFox : happy2bee : Thanks for your input! My temp didn’t stay up today, so I guess I didn’t O. It seems like my OPK lines are fading as opposed to getting darker, so maybe I am not ovulating again this month. It is getting very frustrating. I did start taking B Complex this month to lengthen my LP, and after a quick google search, I saw that some people felt like it delayed ovulation, or caused it to skip, so we will see. I am only on CD 12 right now,, so I am trying not to stress about it yet and just keeping BDing. It is just my first week back at work (I am a teacher), and I am so tired…
natbrown0703 : Man, what did you do to them to make them so angry! In all seriousness though I hope it stopped for good and doesn’t return!

Ohhavok : Wow-That test! The pregnant line is stealing die from the other line. FX very hard that everything goes perfectly for you and your friend! That’s so wonderful that you are pregnant together.
natbrown0703 : Yay for hitting the 48 hour mark! I’m hoping the dip in your temp is O and not AF coming. I think it’s wise of you to BD just in case it is O. They’re mad at you? Jeesh! Sensitive little things, aren’t they?
MrsR4ever : Of course I called right after the new patient coordinator had left for the day. I left a message. :/
MrsMellyBean : Thinking of you today friend!
onyx81 : What time of day do you do the OPKs?
luxelove : Hey lady! I remember you! You’re story stuck with me and I’ve wondered how you were doing from time to time. I’m so happy to see you back and the hear that your Darling Husband is doing better and you are ready to move forward together. 🙂 I’m not sure about the OPKs but I would definitely try a different brand if I were you.
happy2bee : I’m sorry about the BFN. I don’t think it’s odd at all. I’ve been wondering how many cycles of trying I have left in me.
hogoboom2012 : I’m glad the pain subsided but sorry a different kind of pain moved in. Hopefully it will be short lived. Car problems always happen at the worst time. At least you found a new to you car to last you for a bit. FX that the 3rd time’s a charm!!

> FreckledFox : Anytime! I blogged a post about the costs too at one point. Just let me know if/when you want more details 🙂 And I’m so sorry for the BFN 🙁 lots of hugs for you!
luxelove : Welcome back! It’s good to see you again!
happy2bee : I already told you, but I’m so sorry for the BFN. Lots of hugs for you too! Maybe one of my appointments will work out and we can grab coffee again or something soon!
onyx81 : my OPK’s will get almost positive a couple times and then drop off again. I hope it comes soon for you!
MissCorgi22 : Thank you! I appreciate it.
I know we’re not at the 500 post mark yet, but would anyone mind if I started a new thread? It’s the start of the new cycle for me and I’ll take all the threat starters luck I could get right now! If someone has a problem with that, no worries.

MissCorgi22 : Well, I am a tad crazy. I started the Clearblue Advanced tests that look for estrogen and the LH surge in the morning, and i also do Wonderfos in the evening since the Clearblue is just in the morning. Last month I got the high fertility reading on the Clearblue (it measures the increase in estrogen) on CD 7, and then I got the peak reading on CD 10 and O’d on CD 11. This month I got a high reading on CD 7 again, but I still haven’t gotten the peak reading which measures LH, so I have had 6 days of the high reading which I don’t think is supposed to happen. I am sticking with it though and will continue BDing until my temp goes up or I see blood. 🙂
hogoboom2012 : I very, very rarely get a postive OPK, so I am assuming my surge is short. I have maybe gotten in twice in the 15 months that I have charted. My line will get darker though and get close, but my current line is pretty light currently. Before my cycle went crazy a few months ago, I would always O on CD 15, so I guess I still have a day or so that it could get darker.

hogoboom2012 : go for it!! It’s all the little extra added luck you need to get your little bean!!
MissCorgi22 : yeah, super sensitive lol now if only they’d be sensitive with my emotions and give me a little sticky baby!!!
onyx81 : I work in a school as well, but I’m a social worker I’m dreading next Wednesday when kids return! I’ve had to work all summer, but it’s been like half days and so relaxed. #backtoreality hahah. I hope your get your peak reading soon!!
Ohhavok : how was michigan??
Post # 412
happy2bee : I can’t believe you’re getting a BFN because everytime I look at your chart, i’m like “oh yeah!!!”. and I was the exact same way. I would fluctuate between feeling more positive and being like “Okay, it’s alright it’s not this month, it will be next month” to not knowing how many more months of it I could possibly take and be sane.
MissCorgi22 : Thanks girl!!!!! It really is the most amazing situation ever! So praying everything goes well. I took a FRER this morning and the line was evennnnn darker, the control line is looking super thin lol. I have one more at home, then i’m done. I am only testing with the stash I have lol. So one more FRER, one more CB digital which I will wait til tomorrow or Saturday and hopefully get a 3+ on, then a little bag of cheapies if I feel the urge. But no more buying tests for me!
hogoboom2012 : You should definitely start it!!
natbrown0703 : It was great!!! Weather was hot, but nothing like Florida! So that was nice. It was also super nice seeing my family…we did a big bbq night with them all, then another big game night which were both a blast. I am back at work today and seriously HAVE ZERO DESIRE. I am soooooo glad you’re bleeding is done!!!!
Post # 413
natbrown0703 : I know! I am so lucky to have the few weeks off, but it is so hard to go back! I literally almost started crying on Sunday because I had to go back and my son had to go back to daycare. For some reason, my husband didn’t have any sympathy….
So, my temp went back up today, so maybe I did ovulate and yesterday was a fluke. It is possible because the timing was off, and I was awake for a bit before I took my temp because there was a thunderstorm, and my son was up afraid of the thunder. We will see what happens tomorrow.

onyx81 : I don’t think we are friends on FF right now! I dont have your chart on my list. But after a temp rise for O, I often get that fall back temp thats low, and then it rises again!
Post # 415
onyx81 : I don’t remember, how many cycles have you guys been at it?
MissCorgi22 : Thanks, it’s ok I have my moments where the world is coming to an end and then I’m fine.
hogoboom2012 : go ahead and start one, you deserve all the starters luck for the BFP you’re going to get from this IUI. Third time’s the charm!
natbrown0703 : yay for no bleeding, a new record LOL! (not really something to laugh about but in these circumstances, we got to find the humor in something right?)
Ohhavok : I think it’s the progesterone I’m taking that’s making my chart look amazing. The good news is that my period seems to hold off while I’m taking it so I would think if we do get our BFP again, hopefully I will be able to sustain the pregnancy.
onyx81 : I had that this last cycle too where I had a pretty large fallback rise at 2dpo so it’s definitly possible
FreckledFox : How are you doing hun?
Post # 416
MrsMellyBean : Hey hun, how are you doing? I was thinking about you all yesterday! HUGS!
Well I tested again this morning and a BFN at 14dpo so I’ll stop the progesterone tonight and hopefully it will be on to a new cycle. Sorry for the debbie downer attitude yesterday. Darling Husband and I were talking about it and he said that he’s willing to try as long as I am for our biological family but when I’m ready to stop he’s ready to pursue adoption too. He said to me “it’s so frustrating that some people can just seem to touch each other and get pregnant”. I was like “yeah honey I completely get that”. He was joking yesterday that he wants to adopt every little kid we see on the street coming from a guy that wasn’t sure he was ready to have kids 3 years ago, this is saying A LOT! In other good news, we got DHs lab results back from his testosterone blood draw and his levels went from 130 (normal is 300-800) to 675! So that’s awesome! Still waiting on the results of his latest SA but should get those at our doctor appt on Wednesday. We don’t really need the results to get better but I’ve read it can help with morphology and sperm counts so we will take any increase we can get!

happy2bee : I am doing… meh? Kind of floating in between feeling excited for my RE appt in Oct, but also sad that we keep failing and thinking how it’s come to this. I’m sorry about the BFN. 🙁 Another for me too at 12dpo. I’m out. Thats amazing about your husband Testosterone!!!! YAY! What a huge increase. Also, about your husband comment, I’m glad you are on the same page. Its hard when they dont understand. On one hand we want them to understand, but then we aso dont want them to be frustrated too. I keep telling my Darling Husband to stay positive cause someone has to!
Post # 418
hogoboom2012 : I think you should start the new thread!
happy2bee : I am sorry for the BFN lady 🙁 HUGS!!! However, your DH’s results-HELLO HIGH NUMBERS!!!! oMG That’s awesome! Congratulations.
AFM: For some reason WB is not letting respond to everyone. I’ve had this problem since yesterday. So I am following alone and I promise I am not ignoring your comments. WB is being a B! ….

happy2bee : This is our 5th cycle for baby number 2, but I am going to be 35 in a few months and Darling Husband is almost 40, so I feel like our time is running out! Plus, right when we stopped trying my body decided to struggle with Oing suddenly. It is super frustrating . I am gald that your husband’s numbers turned out so great!
FreckledFox : I am sorry about the BFN! I was playing around with my chart, and if I have 2 more days of higher temps, it marks me Oing as yesterday, but that just seems odd to me because my OPKs have been so light. And I thought I felt O pains on CD 10 and hadn’t really taken the OPKs all that regularly yet for this cycle because it has been so early. I am wondering if I should just abandon OPKs next cycle and just start BDing as soon as AF is over because they don’t seem to work for me and seem to cause more stress. We have been BDing somewhat regularly, so we have our bases covered either way in that department, but honestly I want to O because I am getting so exhausted!
Post # 420
onyx81 : Are you using multiple opks a day? like up to 3x a day? Thats weird they are so light with O potentially happening. I love my OPKS (when they work). Is the package old or defective?
