Well Thanks Everybody... But unfortunately I had a miscarriage this past week. My appt was the 21st and I started not feeling well (& other awful things) on the 20th. They think the fertilized egg didn't attach itself to my uterus correctly and that is what caused it, but we will never be 100% sure.
We're both doing ok... as to be expected. We have to wait 3 months or so before we can try again. And we will View Thread
I'm confused & thought I would ask my friends on here for any insight.
So far we've been trying since Decemberish... nothing yet. Husband has been partially checked out - his semen was a little thick and his "guys" weren't able to move quickly enough so they put him on Mucinex to help with that... and our next move it to go see a Urologist. Should we just do that now? And what will this visit entail - anybody know?
I've been using ovulation sticks and then had a blood test yesterday to check my progesterone levels (they want to make sure I'm ovulating) and my test came back with a 21.3. It was on the 9th day after my surge as my doc recommended. I've read online that this level is high - normally if it's around 10-14 you're ovulating normally. Does this high level mean I could be pg?
I'm confused... maybe I should call my doc back & ask her... the nurse I got this morning wasn't very helpful at all View Thread
Thanks!!! We went to the Dominican - it was wonderful
And Again, great story. Thanks This website really is pretty awesome. I haven't thought about "IT" since I've been talking to all of you. Which I think is exactly what I needed.
And yeah, I hear more and more about the every 2-3 days method. Doesn't seem like you can go wrong with that. Anyway... my next cycle is supposed to be here around the 8-9th of March. So we will find out soon how this month turned out ~ Cross your fingers!!! T-View Thread
Thanks Cheyenne... I've heard about Clomid. I had a few people tell me that you don't need a script for that even and you can buy it off the net. I thought about buying it and giving it a try - but not sure if I should w/o my doc telling me to?
I will check out this website. Thanks for the input. I love hearing the success stories.
Awesome advice... Thanks And the 2-3 day method. Great idea!! It's worth a shot. I've been using those little ovulation sticks - every morning and I sware I've been ovulating everyday since i've been using them - the colors always look the same to me. And the temp taking. I did buy a thermometer and will start doing that after my next cycle if it didn't work this time.
I did see my doctor before hand, because I had been on the pill for almost 16 years and wanted to make sure that wouldn't cause any issues. She said I'm healthy and ready to go. So, that made me feel much better about trying. T-View Thread
Hi Everyone... I'm just looking for a little support here. I'm 37 and just got married in December. My husband is younger than I am. (he's 29) I already have a 20 yr old in college, but he really wants a child - so I am all for it after some persuasion. lol We've been trying since the end of December... and nothing yet. I'm freaking out a little. I'm not fully 100% sure how the whole telling when you ovulate works... it wasn't this hard when I was 16 Any advice? I know I'm probably just being whiny and it's really NOT time to freak out yet. Any feedback or stories on how long it took you all would be appreciated. I would love to hear the stories... to keep my mind off my own!!! Thanks View Thread
