@ChuckNorris:  I need to be kept in check! I am already thinking about how I will be super tempted to POAS this weekend because I have tests upstairs in the bathroom. Luckily I usually wake up in such a groggy state that I go and have my FMU before realizing that I wanted to test. That should help keep me from POAS early!

@MrsLord:  Welcome! I’m new to TTC too…I know it seems like it will be “too easy” to get a BFP the first time around…but I’m still hoping for one!

@LEwife543:  I like your idea of making a bucket list! I am suuuuper impatient so I need to keep myself in check and say, “when I am pregnant/when we have a baby we won’t be able to ____, so enjoy it while we can!”

I’m out… AF arrived this AM as I got up to test πŸ™  Feeling pretty down this morning, but trying to focus on the next cycle.  It was wishful thinking that I’d get pg immediately after MC, but I still got my hopes up.  It’s so hard going through TTC again after a loss.  Now that I’ve had a period, hopefully everything will be regulated and back to normal this cycle.  GL everyone…  Hope not to see u on the Oct board:)

@ButterflyDoll:  I’m anticipating AF today or tomorrow. My spotting was much more frequent this morning. Oddly enough, it’s gone back to just colour and no…particles(?) but there is alot of it. Plus my temp was down today.

I’m not really shocked though, so I’m not quite angry yet, but I’ve got my pitch fork ready for next month!

If it starts this week, I should be seeing the OBGYN right around CD 16, so it’s not really optimal timing for anything other maybe getting the paper work for a 7dpo blood draw if I o :S

FYI

 

Hibiscus Flowers

Most hibiscus species produce bright red flowers, the  dried sepals of which are made into hot herbal infusions or cold beverages in a  variety of countries, particularly India. Commercial varieties of hibiscus  flower tea are readily available in North America. According to the “Natural  Standard Herb & Supplement Reference,” hibiscus flower extract has shown the  ability to reduce blood pressure, boost immunity, lower blood cholesterol and  sugar levels, stimulate metabolism, affect hormone levels, and possibly deter  against the proliferation of some forms of cancer. Hibiscus tea, being much more  dilute than extracts, has less impact on your body.

Impact on Estrogen

According to a 1997 “Biological and Pharmaceutical  Bulletin,” the extract of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis flowers causes irregular  estrous cycles in mice because of increased production of estrogen and hormonal  imbalance. The researchers concluded that the hormonal imbalance may prevent  ovulation. Women do not go through estrus, but there remains a possibility that  consuming hibiscus flowers can disrupt female cycles and cause difficulty with  trying to conceive.

Hibiscus Root

According to an Indian study published in a 2008 edition  of the journal “Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine,” ethanol  extract of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis root displays strong estrogenic properties and  near complete anti-implantation activity in animal studies and should be  considered a strong anti-conceptive compound. In other words, hibiscus root  extract promotes the synthesis of estrogen, which upsets hormonal balance and  uterine development and prevents a fertilized egg from implanting and growing in  the uterus. The doses used were 400 mg/kg of body weight, and it was 100 percent  effective at preventing conception in the test mice. The estrogenic activity of  the hibiscus roots is thought to be stronger than its  leaves.

Recommendations

Various parts of the hibiscus shrub have been used by  indigenous peoples as a form of birth control for hundreds of years, and  scientific studies provide evidence for its effectiveness. The strength of  commercially prepared hibiscus tea no doubt varies and possibly contains more  parts of the plant than just its flowers. As such, women who are pregnant or are  trying to get pregnant, or those who are using hormone replacement, should play  it safe and avoid drinking hibiscus tea or consuming its extract. The effects of  consuming hibiscus tea on fetuses are unclear, but they are potentially  negative. Using hibiscus products as a form of birth control has not proven to  be more effective or reliable than other conventional methods, so use caution  and practice safe sex regardless of supplementation.

@parisian_bee: Congratulations!

@ChuckNorris: I am in the same situation with being Maid/Matron of Honor.  I really wanted it to happen this month so that I would have the baby before my friend’s wedding, but now if it happens over the next few months there is no way I will be able to go.  I’m not saying anything to her about it now, she knows we are trying, so if I can’t make it, it won’t be a huge surprise, but it will suck.

 

So my body is doing crazy things to mess with me.  As I wrote a couple of days ago, I started spotting on Friday.  Then it stopped Saturday and Sunday, and gave me a glimmer of hope.  Saturday night I found out that one of my best friends is pregnant and actually started crying.  I felt so bad, but she understood.  This is her second baby, so she was like “I really wanted you to get pregnant first!  I’m so sorry”  Then I felt really bad for making her feel bad, of course I’m excited for her!  I’m just sad for me πŸ™  Anyway, since I still wasn’t spotting last night I thought maybe I could still be in, but then I started spotting again this morning just a little bit.  I think it is probably the progesterone messing with my system, but who knows.  If I don’t really start today then I’ll probably test tomorrow just to make myself more crazy, but my hopes are not high.

Ladies, I’m back because I’m going crazy all alone with my thoughts. I have an appointment with my OB/GYN tomorrow and I am sick about it. So I’m checking in because I might lose it tomorrow and I hope you’ll all take me back.

On CD26 I had a progesterone draw that confirmed O. I was right around 15 (just below). So I am currently 13DPO and refusing to pee on any sticks. I’ll find out tomorrow either way at my appointment. (The fear of a BFN overrides any hope I have for a BFP, so I don’t test.)

@anotherbee:  Sorry about the spotting. If it helps, I’m jealous. My cramping has disappeared and I’m not even spotting yet so I have a strong feeling AF is going to be a bitch and turn up late just to stop me getting on with next month. Wish I were starting too πŸ™
