@hardtoconcentrate: I know you have gotten a lot of amazing responses but I just wanted to let you know that I know how you feel. It’s scary to think that there may be actual fertility “problems”, and that’s the point I’m at too. I should probably have gone to see my dr by now, but I’m just not ready for all that yet. I need to get mentally and emotionally prepared for all is that, so I totally get why you would be completely overwhelmed having it thrust upon you all at once like that. It’s scary but at the same possibly exciting to know that if there is a problem, your dr is going to he aggressive in helping you find out what it is. I just have my FX that we won’t have to go through this much longer. *hugs* πŸ™‚

Need to catch up on everyone’s posts, but thought I’d go ahead and check in.

Roll  Call:

Cycle Day and Cycles trying: CD16, 3DPO. Well… Technically we were TTA, however, this cycle DH took a more lax approach and it turned into NTNP. We decided to NTNP the next cycle too, but if there’s no BFP then we’ll go back to TTA until June. I’m super excited that we finally have a solid plan! 

Age (if you care to share): 30

Chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3d70f5

Estimated POAS date: If AF doesn’t show up, then 2/25 or 2/26

Issues if any: I think the concerns I had have finally cleared up the past two cycles.

How are you going after you BFP (supplements, BD timing,  etc): Prenatals, b6, more water. Will try grapefruit juice next cycle. Didn’t time BD specifically, but the one BD during the possible period was on O-3, so I know the chances are not great. DH would probably faint if we got a BFP the very first time we sort of tried. πŸ™‚ Then again, I know he’ll be freaking out no matter when it happens–he’s excited when talking about raising our kids, but scared to have them. Go figure!

For fun, what’s your favourite thing to do when  you’re not on weddingbee?: Lots! Travel, movies, wine, obssessive research on whatever I happen to be obssessing about at the time (now it’s everything baby related), arts & crafts, etc.

Ok, tried to catch up at least on the last couple of days!

@Sunflowers13:  Added you on FF! I was cracking up after I looked at your chart, because I have been wondering how I got a positive OPK and O on the same day and at the top of the page where there is a question mark for the Q&A it was answering that very question! So going to look at your chart actually helped me. πŸ™‚

@MrsAMac: That’s so cute that your hubby wants to be there for the POAs! We have all these rules too about when the timing would be off. No December holiday babies, no babies in April (too many family events already). Sorry that AF is showing up…

View original reply
@hardtoconcentrate:  Yay doxies! I have 2. πŸ™‚ Oh, and congrats on the house!  Now you can plan how to decorate a nursery. πŸ™‚ Sorry about the overwhelming Dr appointment… It would definitely shock me too if something like that happened to me without being prepared, but I think your Dr is awesome for being concerned and wanting to figure things out for you! FX you get your answers! Glad to hear that you were able to take it all in and now are feeling better.

@BOGB:  Congratulations on the house! Is it your first?

@chelles07:  Sorry about AF symptoms… But no AF and watery CM is a good sign!

@MrsPuddingface:  Sorry about AF, but when things are not going right the end of the cycle seems like a blessing. Glad to see your spirits are good. Hope next cycle is The One for you!

@MrsCarnival:  Your hubby is awesome!

@FreckledFox:  FX that your hubby pushes the date up for starting TTC! πŸ™‚

@ScottishMrs:  Sorry your temps are going crazy. Though I think the stress of the exams and sleep deprivation could be messing things up a bit and making the temps a little off.

View original reply
@doxielove: Sorry you have to take a break from actively TTC, but the promotion and a raise is super sweet! Will set you up better for the time when LO arrives. Plus you never know, maybe NTNP will do the trick.

@mariegerbasi:  it stands for pee on a stick πŸ™‚ aka take a pregnancy test or opk. http://wiki.weddingbee.com/Abbreviations the ttc ones are toward the bottom

@hardtoconcentrate:  I hope everything turns out okay! If something is making it harder its good to know sooner rather than later, but there’s still no reason to think that there is. Six months isn’t a sign of infertility. I’m sure it was a huge shock to start doing all these tests when you’re still focusing on taking it month after month, but I would bet that you get your positive this cycle because you started all the tests πŸ˜‰ knowing things are okay can also be a huge relief. Even if there is something, it just means you can figure out a solution sooner and then get your bfp sooner!!!

Just wanted to say this morning that I LOVE how much I have learned about the whole TTC process from this community. I’ve been checking out the site twoweekwait.com and reading all of the ‘Am I Pregnant’ stories. I feel very educated about TTC when reading these. Some girls on there know nothing about IB, what ovulation symptoms are or even when they ovulate. I really want to refer them to this lovely community but i think it might infringe on the rules over there. 

So in essence, I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone on this board for teaching me  so much about something where 5 months ago I had no clue about. When I started I had no clue even how long my ccycles were. THANK YOU LOVELY LADIES. 

On a side note my temp was up this morning. we shall see what Tommarow’s temp holds for me. 13DPO temp is always the deciding factor.

@BalticBee:  Thanks. πŸ™‚  And another doxie person??!  Crazy!  I love it!

@glittermoon:  Thanks, lady.  Yes, you’re right – it’s better to find out than not.  I’m feeling much better today.  I talked to DH last night, and, like always, he made me feel a lot better.  He’s not concerned about there being legitimate issues but the does think the length of time may be due to him having prostate issues for a bit and it taking a while to rebuild a damaged sperm count (up to 3 months!).  He wants to get the non-invasive stuff done now because having more information is better, and he’s willing to do whatever he can to improve his swimmers if need be.  But he wasn’t upset or worried.  So, really, kind of the perfect reaction. How are you doing?  Still dealing with morning sickness?  Hope you’re feeling well!

@MrsMonty11:  Thanks so much for the sweet message.  I hope that both of us get our sticky BFPs very soon.  If it’s not this month or next, then we always have Jenny Renny to fall back on, right?! πŸ˜‰

Well bees, I tested yesterday morning with a wondfo and thought I saw the faintest line, but only if I held it just right.  I was worried it might be an evap line, so DH bought me some FRERs on his way home and I tested this am with FMU.  There are definitely 2 lines, and definitely both pink, but the line is also pretty faint on the FRER.   I went to bed late last night though, and peed before going to bed, so I only had about a 4 and a half hour hold this morning.  Also, I think it is possible I am either 10 or 11 DPO today.  Hopefully the lines will darken in the next few days.  Please keep FX’d for a sticky baby!  I am pretty much in shock right now, doesn’t feel real yet at all!  I had practically 0 symptoms this cycle, go figure!

@hardtoconcentrate:  I would probably break down and cry too if I wasn’t expecting fertility test talk!!  I’m sending you lots of hugs.  Information is power, so hopefully your tests and results will give you more clarity!

@MrsEagleEye:  Oh my, CONGRATS!!! 

 

As for me, FF thinks I’m 23DPO.  Oh silly FF…
