Andddd here is my roll call. With my long cycles we shall see if I even get to POAS in November, but I’ll hang out with you ladies in the meantime. 

Your age/partner’s age: 28 / 34

Baby #: 1

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD2 

Ovulation Date: not sure, but I’m guessing it will be between November 11-13  

POAS/Beta Date: if I O between there, it will be November 25-27, we will say November 27 as of right now  

Usual Cycle Length: lately it’s been all over the place….or 33 days  

Cycles Trying: we are on month 11 and cycle 9  

Known fertility issues: PCOS and a septum in my uterus, and azoospermia for DH. 

BFP Plan (BD Timing, supplements, charting, prenatals, etc.): temping with Ava and charting, many supplements I feel like a pharmacy at this time, prenatals, OPKs, and still going to try this month despite the azoospermia just in case one sneaks through since I had a CP in June.

Trying anything new this month?: seeing the urologist this Thursday to discuss going in for surgery to see if there are any sperm hiding up there, and we also see the RE on Friday too. I’m also starting a PCOS diet. 

Link to your chart if charting:

For fun: What are you thankful for? My amazing husband who always lifts me up when I am down, makes me laugh all the time and supports me whenever it is needed. I’m thankful for a family that is supportive and so full of love. Thankful for life itself, and doctors to help us. There is so much more I could list.

My POAS date changed to Nov 4! 3dpo today but i’m not convinced. Attaching my chart, I feel like o was cd14? I have low hopes if it was cd13 since we didn’t get to bd as much. Yikes!!

Thank you! I am hoping for some answers too, but trying to keep my hopes at bay because of the azoospermia. Praying so hard they will find some swimmers in there!

Surgical consult to my knowledge. Hoping for a surgery before the end of the year and then things will be a little more clear as to where our next steps will lead us. I would love to not have to further discuss using donor sperm….

tulipdazey :  Late to this sorry, I wouldn’t worry about not telling DH.  We have male as our problem.  Over the 2 years we were TTC I found when he knew we were BDing because of O he would have performance issues due to the pressure.  I actually stopped telling him, at his request, because it gave him too much anxiety.  You and DH have agreed to TTC, so I don’t view it as lying to him by not telling him.  He knows you aren’t on BC and he knows you aren’t using condoms, and he knows you’re TTC.  So I don’t view it as lying, you’re just not oversharing information that would make him nervous.

 

AFM: Baseline ultrasound for my IVF cycle today!  I’m supposed to stop BCP on Monday, and start stimming next Friday 11/2.  I also have accupuncture this afternoon.  I’m super nervous about starting.  I know I’ve waited so long to get to this point, and I’m happy to start.  I think it’s just that we have to pay the whole cost up front and handing over that check is a lot and it’s really scaring me.

tulipdazey :  About the Ava bracelet – I’ve looked into those before and I’m definitely interested, however I don’t think they ship to Canada. I’m going to be in Florida over the holidays, so I had been considering shipping it to our rental there. Glad to hear that it gets positive reviews!
