Hey all, since I've been MIA the past few days I thought I would chime in...First of all, CONGRATS Hope and Heather!! So thrilled for the BFPs!! I know for both of you, your journeys were much harder than you ever thought they would be, but what an amazing blessing to get those BFPs!! Many blessings to you both, tons of sticky and growing vibes to you both!!
My personal suggestion to this matter, and since we are a self-moderated group here I think figuring these things out is appropriate, is to continue and be consistent to use "Trigs" in the title of a post that may cause a trigger response to any of the ladies on here. Esp after a BFP, sharing that info is not only appropriate, but as expressed by most here is wanted. Perhaps keeping certain details within those threads may keep those that are having a trigger type reaction from reading something that may upset them.
Again, very excited for the BFPs! Please do update when you can.View Thread
Welcome Sarah! I am so so so very sorry for your losses! ((((hugs)))). This must be a very tough thing for you and DH especially since there has been so many.
I too am hoping that this IB for you! I personally have no insight on that since I've never been pg, but it sounds like what i have heard other describe. You will have to let us know if/when you do test!
Also, have you talked to your Dr about all the mcs and what could be the reason behind it? Hope you are able to get this figured out so you guys can have another LO soon!View Thread
LOL, the mystery is over! I'm usually very private about everything, but that is one thing I'm starting to get over throughout this whole process.
Thanks Jess, I hope the clomid works! I was worried about my cm bc I heard that sometimes it is non-existent on clomid, but boy that is not the case with me this c! It's better than it has been in a long time! Oh the things that excite me....cm....
And did I just read that Joelle likes to take showers with her DH?!? LOL! You go girl!! View Thread
Do you have any pets and if so names and species/breed? 1 crazy little doggie, a 4 and half year old Jack Russell. He is the craziest but sweetest dog ever!
How long have you been with your DH/SO? DH and I have been together since our freshman year of college - we dated 4 years before getting married 5 years ago this past March.
Are you TTC your first LO or a sibling? If Sibling, what are your LO's names and ages? TTC our first
What are your hobbies/interests? Running and staying active. DH and I watch a lot of sports together, and I go to a lot of soccer games since my DH is a coach! I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes although I don't as much as I like bc of time and money. My most recent hobbies or should I say time consuming activities are job hunting and house hunting since we are moving in a month and a half!! AHHHH!!
What is your favorite color? Green
What is your favorite vacation spot? Anywhere with a beach! Grew up in S. FL so I need sand and ocean!
How long have you been TTC? Tell me a bit about your journey so far. I went off bc a year ago this month. We got real serious in Aug, started tracking and all that. In Jan I decided to ck in with my OBGYN, and after having an u/s, looking back at charts, using OPKs, a biopsy and some b/w, we realized I was Oing later in my short cycles that I thought and my LP was only 7-9 days. Went on prog for 2 cycles - nothing. One cycle w/ no prog and a 7 day LP. HSG was good, tubes clear but a retroverted uterus which shouldn't cause a problem. Started clomid this c and got a OPK today on cd 14 which is earlier than normal!! and I've had some ewcm (maybe the mucinex is helping!). BDed yesterday and plan to tonight again. Really hoping this clomid is gonna do the trick. S/e have been a little yucky but nothing I wouldn't tolerate in a heartbeat for that BFP. View Thread
Just wanted to say that I am thinking about all the girls in the 2ww - Hope, Abby'sMom, Joelle, and Jess. Hope, I really hope you get wonderful news on Friday! I would love to see some BFPs on this board this month!
Cali - hoping these next few days are as stress free as possible, although I know finals make it crazy. Just hoping the clomid does what it is supposed to and the IUI makes the difference. What is that other drug you are taking? I didn't recognize it.
And to the other ladies that are earlier in your cycle or waiting to go to the Dr. - thinking about you all too!
Jen - did you have your Dr.'s apt yesterday? Post an update wen you can!
Hey all, hope everyone had a great weekend! Especially since we had some newcomers last week, wanted to do a monday update!!
I'm on C11 on cd12 of my first c with clomid. I did 50mg cd5-9. I started opking this morning, and I'm hoping for + sometime this week! I'm pretty sure I have been experiencing s/e of the clomid, although I've tried not to read into everything (yeah I know we are all so good at that right LOL!). I have had headaches every day since Wed, but thankfully not constant just "flareups" every day. I have also been pretty moody and unfortunately very emotional! Yesterday I was a mess, crying at everything and anything. I don't know if Mother's day made a difference for me or what. Anyway, nothing was too terrible, and I really don't care about the s/e if the clomid works! I know I am very sensitive to medicine, so I figured I would experience something. So bring on the strong ovulation and I'm getting ready for some bding! I'm trying mucinex this month to help thin my cm and I've got the preseed ready to go.
How is everyone else doing? Where are you? Any updates???
I can't say for sure since I didn't OPK last cycle after my HSG, but I swear it threw my c off a little too. I do know that my cm was very different. I think the whole c was just kind of screwy, and whether or not the HSG affected it I'm not sure. But it is interesting that all 3 of us felt like it may have had some effect!View Thread
I swear I replied to this earlier!! It didn't go through apparently!
Just wanted to say that I am so excited that you got your referral and will be seeing a specialist and get some info and answers! Wish you were able to go sooner for your sake, but hopefully June 9 will be here before you know. Crazy the time that passes when ttc!
We are having company later in the weekend, so I need to clean and grocery shop. Finishing the clomid tonight, so hoping to O mid-late next week. So far so good on the s/e or at least I think. I have to remember that I have a ton of stressors in my life right now so I'm not going to blame the clomid for anything unless it's obvious.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Abby'smom, happy anniversary! Have fun on your getaway. I love Japanese Steakhouses, my fav!View Thread
I wasn't able to pull up your chart for some reason. I know my experience with temping is that there are a lot of variables that can throw it off, and with FF it won't read it if those temps are off. If you can decipher for yourself when you think you Oed you can manually put it in there for this cycle. But I wouldn't stress out too much just bc it was prob your stomach virus that threw your temps off.View Thread
