AF showed up today. I guess I am a little relieved because honestly, we are living in a hotel right now because of our house fire. All of our belongings are in storage and it is hard saying when we will have a stable house again because of this mess. Going tomorrow to the credit union to get us pre-qualified for home buying. Home buying is the final thing to mark off before definite TTC time – as we have been NTNT for a year. Hopefully soon, we will see an upside to all of this chaos.

@brittanym526:  I am so sorry to hear about your home. Sending you best wishes as you deal with everything. I can’t even imagine how difficult it must be.

@Wispy:  were on cycle 7 now and I know what you mean about the frustration.

AF is due right at the end of feb so I would probably test begining of march,all being well :)Im feeling a teeny bit more positive this month,weve been using OPKs,making sure we BD lots at the right time (im ovulating around now) etc. Although the OPKs have been totally useless and shown me nothing helpful,Im feeling a bit more aware of my body this month, so keeping my fingers crossed

I have been stalking the POAS threads for a while now, while trying to decide. I am on CD2 now, and I really can’t help but wonder if my mum went through the same mindset as I am these days.

I tried to fight the urge to join but I REALLY want to be one of the finally lucky ones who can say “Is this a BFP?!”

First round of clomid this month, 50 mg. AF is expected to arrive on the 5th or so – when I’ll be in New Orleans. I can guarantee I will be testing early and daily.

This is cycle 5 or 6… I haven’t kept good count because we had a false positive, I failed to take birth control some time before the wedding, etc.

hold the phone ladies!!!I just took another OPK just when I was about ready to give up on them,and I think I have a positive!All the others I have taken have only really had shadows on them (the kind where you squint,put your head on one side and think “maybe its the light…” lol)but I took one and have a definate line much clearer than the others. It didnt show up staright away,but the tests say it can take up to 30 mins for a positive to show so Im hoping like crazy its not just an evap line (none of the other hundreds Ive tested ever got darker after 30 mins due to evap)

Quick question though,this may sound stupid, but do positive OPKs mean that your actually producing an egg, or is it just measuring the hormone levels meaning you MIGHT be producing an egg?

Heres hoping Im popping out an egg soon!

If my current math is right, it’ll be more like Leap Year POAS…which I am strangely excited about.  This is our first official NTNT cycle…though we’ve been bending the rules of NFP for a while.

@SugarBean:  same here. I’m in the over 35 club. If Darling Husband and I don’t get pregnant this month we have to start all the fertility stuff.  so I hope we can plan the BD’ing correctly.  I have been temping for 3 months. Fingers crossed for you.

 

@SFreeman2187:  I tried to resist too.  I think you and I may be the only two from the mid-Feb group to not get a BFP.  Good Luck with Clomid.  Can I ask you why you are on CLomid? (I’m just curious b/c I don’t really know what it is, etc).

Good Luck ladies!!! luck of the irish i hope!!

I’m on CD4 here… so I’ll join! Fingers crossed I get another ovulatory month – last month was my first one in almost a YEAR. I’m on the same 100mg Clomid dose & am having a HSG tomorrow, so hoping it might give us a miracle baby before we dive into IVF.

@jaguar:  hi.  I’m just becoming more curious as to all the meds and what not.  What is HSG?  And what is the clomid for? If Darling Husband and I don’t get preggers this month I have to go in for blood work CD3 and like CD 18 next month (I guess to see if I am really releasing an egg… even though my charting has shown that I have ovulated the past 3 months).  Just curious.  I don’t mean to be so forward, but any info helps! GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!!

@Wispy:  No prob! I’m pretty open about our journey so far.

A HSG is a test where they check to see if your fallopian tubes are blocked or have any abnormalities. They inject a dye into the uterus and take pictures as it spreads.

As for Clomid – well, I take that to induce ovulation. I’ve been TTC for 14 months now (started Dec 2010) and I’ve ovulated possibly three times in that frame – which is my biggest problem. This will be my last Clomid round (#4) before we start injectibles instead.
