Wow, I can't believe we only had 2 BFP's this month. I"m out for December, but there is still a few more days until the end of the month. I hope that those of you who are still waiting to test get some BFP's.

I"m off to January now. Lots of Baby Dust for everyone.

I'm out too. AF came this morning. Will be even harder to conceive since hubby will be gone 16 hours a day M-F starting in Jan, but maybe it will still happen. Who knows. I wish I didn't want a baby.

Well, I think its time to call out for December. Not due for AF till next week, but it looks like I'm having an anovulatory cycle. This is the first month I've charted BBT, so I'm not sure that I ever really O'd...I 've been on BCP for the last 9 years (wow, it doesn't seem like it's been THAT long). So now I'm hoping that I O normally next month. It's only been 4 months, but I think I'm gonna talk to my OB next month, since I'll be there for my yearly anyway.

By the way, does anyone know the effects of corticosteroids on male fertility? My husband was on them to treat his Crohns disease for at least a year...should I bring that up, or am I jumping the gun?

Hillary, I'm so sorry! I also thought this was your month, hang in there. I know how hard it is to see close friends have babies...even though you really are happy for them, it still hurts.

Congrats to anyone with BFPs this month!

Wow, to those ladies out there who tried for 4 years before getting pregnant you have given me hope and inspiration. You have proven that it will happen. It is really hard to be patient but I will continue to try. My husband and I started ttc in Oct. 2008. We found out we were pregnant in Dec. 2008 but our daughter was stillborn due to severe preeclampsia in April 2009. We have been trying again now for 5 months. I really thought this was my month, but I started spotting today. I feel so depressed! Ughh! Hillary I'm sorry you are going through the same thing! It's so hard!

For those of you who have been trying for a long time, how did you stay strong through all those BFN cycles?? I feel like I"m losing hope!

This is my first to really see what this blogging is all about. I was reading over this topic and sucking back tears as I know first hand what it's like waiting month to month just to end up disappointed.
My husband and I tried for 4 years, many tests and surgeries later and still nothing. I was doing IUI and taking Femara and had a serious meltdown by our fifth try. I finally decided to take a break (after trying this many times, I think I really meant it this time), dealt with some lingering work stresses and bingo it happened. I was in such disbelief I didn't know wether to keep swearing or thank the good lord above when staring at the test.
All I can say is hang in there. I've had many many crying months but now have a seven month old that I just love so much.
Now we're hoping for #2 and keeping our fingers crossed it won't take another 4 yrs.

Lily, Amanda - I hope you ladies get some good news. It's just so awful getting that negative when you were so convinced it was going to be your time. I mean, I was utterly convinced and stupid AF ruined it all. Why is this so hard? Why does it hurt so much?

MOMIN09 - I can't believe you tried for 4 years. Wow. I give you so much credit - that must have been so painful.

Love,
Hillary

I just hope you ladies don't have to wait for your BFP as long as I did. It was almost 4 years of trying before we finally got pregnant. We lost that baby at 11 weeks, and then a few months later got pregnant again. We are now enjoying our little miracle as we watch him grow up. He's now almost 8 months old.

That sucks Hillary, I had my fingers crossed for you.

Now I think my body is just mocking me. Had some spotting Saturday (thought it was AF) but now absolutely nothing. Took a hpt Sunday am but got a negative. Af is 3 days late with no sign of showing up. Argh.

It may have been a blessing though. If I had been pregnant there would have been no shoveling my car out of the snow or helping my husband rescue his from the tow lot and then dig out a parking spot.

I'm so sorry Hillary! My heart breaks for you. . .

I tested(early) this morning with a HPT and got a BFN :( I know, testing early isn't always correct - I really just wanted to in case I could find out before christmas since AF is due Christmas Eve - but it still hurts to see a "Not pregnant".

So now I'm going to wait until after Christmas and see what happens. But to be honest, I'm not feeling very optimistic about the whole thing. Truth is, part of me can't help but think that it's never going to happen. . . . not logical, but I'm just so discouraged lately.

Hope everyone else is having better luck!

Thanks. It SUCKS!!!! I am very happy to report that my friend who did IVF got a BFP! She got her beta levels checked Friday. Getting them checked again today to make sure they're increasing. I'm so happy for her, but would be happier if it was both of us.

I thought for sure this was the month. I know I've only done one IUI but I've been on Clomid for 6 months and TTC for 12 months. I think I need a break, because I don't think my body or my emotions can handle another round next month. I have felt good for literally 2 days this month, and felt pretty much like s&*# for this last week. So...I think next month I want to feel good again.

Love,
Hillary

Best Wishes to everyone!!

This is so frusterating when your cycles are different. I got off the pill in June and till september they were still every 28 days on the spot and then after that it was 22 days, 31 days, and then 22 days.. now I'm at 29 days I tested a few times this weekend, and it was negative (granted they were $ store tests) I hear they really do work though. I'm still holing out hope though till AF comes! Ha they other day I figured I'd put some of my math skills to the test, and was doing the mean median mode thing with my cycle days, ha, thought maybe there was some pattern! hehe Gotta use it for something right!?

Thanks for the positive wishes, ladies! I started cramping again today, I've had this off and one for past week or so, but this is more like an achiness all the way across, rather than the twinges I was having. I was really tired about an hour ago and didn't want to do my Christmas baking, but now since I've started that I feel a little better. I bought some preg tests today since I would test on Christmas, now I have to resist the urge to test early!

I think my hubby seems a little reluctant about this month since he is going back to school in Jan and I will only see him on the weekends for 7 months. I hope he will be happy if its this month.

Hillary I can't wait to see if this is your month! I am so hopeful for you!

Well I'm a little late for the December hopeful. My husband will be home in a few days from being on the road. He just started driving a semi-truck. Not the trade by choice but we are kinda glad this happened. I was laid off in April. He calls me anywhere from 3-4 times a day and we chat online alot. We seemed to have grown closer. It feels like we are dating again. I guess absence does make the heart grow founder. After a year we will find a local job. No one will hire you unless you have a year of tracker trailer experience.

Well thru all this we have decided to have another baby. Just one more. I start my period soon so I don't think this will be the month. But you never know pregnancy is not an exact science although some may disagree.

Amanda-I hope you have a great Christmas by being able to tell everyone that you are expecting. Babies are a gift from heaven.

Ugg, my breasts started hurting yesterday. This means either I'm going to start AF in 2-4 days or I'm preg. So... I think if AF isn't here for Christmas, I'm going to be pretty certain of a Christmas miracle.

The wait seems worse this month, I'm having a hard time sleeping. I haven't had any breakouts and my cervix feels different than usual-- but of course, it could be my mind playing tricks on me.

Sad when it's "only" been a year, you know? We've been trying for a year as well. I was telling a friend last night that this whole thing is kind of a double edged sword. I'm grateful that my OB recognized early that fertility was an issue and got me started on Clomid 6 months into trying. But it sucks because it means she knew there was going to be a problem early on. Now that we also know DH has some fertility issues, it feels so overwhelming. But, I would be feeling even more hopeless and overwhelmed if they made us wait the full year before helping or getting DH tested.

Love,
Hillary

CLUBHCTEA- AF isn't due until Christmas Eve, but I'll be taking a HPT on Monday (so that if it's positive I can go in for a blood test before Christmas). If it's negative I'll just wait to retest until after Christmas.
Hubs and I are justy trying the old-fashioned way since it's only been a year since I miscarried and about 6months of actual trying. Which means I've probably used up a good chunk of cash on pregnancy tests! haha.
Your symptoms sound really promising! ! I'll cross my fingers for you - hopefully Monday will be a wonderful day for us both! :)

LILMYSTERY - I know the EXACT feeling. I've been waking up in the middle of the night with sore breasts for the last 4 nights (and I don't sleep on my stomach). This morning I felt like they were weights on my chest (and I have small breasts...). Also having bouts of nausea - lots of dizziness. This morning I'm having what feel like menstrual cramps, pretty big time. Though, I drank last night (I know I shouldn't but I did for hopefully the last time for a while), and stayed up way past my bed time. So some of my yuckiness this morning is related to that. AHHHH!!!!

LILMYSTERY - when do you test? I can't do a HPT because I had an injection of Ovidrel which can cause false positives. Which I suppose it's good that I can't test early. But it means I have to wait until Monday and if AF isn't here, I go to get a blood test.

Love,
Hillary

I am currently doing my best to not get my hopes up right now. For the past 2 days my breasts have been uber-sensitive and sore (even to the point of making sleeping on my stomach uncomfortable), and I've been getting bouts of this queasy feeling with some heartburn (for no reason I can think of).
Sounds promising right?!

But I also know the power of wishing and what your mind can do to your body - so I'm doing my best to squash my high hopes. I really hate being letdown.
Still, I can't help but hope. . . no matter how much I try to talk myself out of it. haha.


Good luck ladies! I'll keep my fingers crossed for some BFPs! :)

Congrats Stacy!
I'm not currently trying, but I love to follow the threads to find out who's getting the BFP's.
We are planning on maybe starting to try for #2 May 2011, but we'll see what happens.

SUNNY - that is almost exactly what I did this month. 100mg of clomid CD 3-7, Estrace starting on CD12 to thicken my lining (and every day since), Ovidrel injection on CD13 (similar to HSG, I believe), then the IUI on CD15. My insurance doesn't cover the Clomid or Ovidrel (but it DOES cover Estrace) or the IUI, but covers all the consultation appts and the ultrasound.

Love,
Hillary

I'm thinking postive thoughts for you, Hillary! I think you'll get an early Christmas gift!!!!!!!

I went to the doctor. We're doing 100mg of clomid this cycle along with a 21 day progesterone test. If I am not pregnant this cycle, I am going to do a HSG (gotta find out if insurance will pay for that). If I am clear, DH's numbers are good enough, and my body starts ovulating earlier, Dr is talking about doing an IUI for us. He thinks with my DH's issues, it might be better for us.

Once again I'm wishing pregnancy symptoms weren't so close to pms symptoms! For the past couple days I've been moody and an emotional rollarcoaster, and last night into today I've had the sore breasts. But AF isn't due until Christmas so it's going to be another week before I test! I'm doing my best to distract myself from thinking about it, but we all know how well that works!

Grats Stacy :) Talk about a happy doctor surprise!
AF is due today so I've been a nervous wreck. We also have the Head of Seconday Schools visiting our school today so that hasn't helped the nerves any. Come on December,be good to me!

Hang in there, Hillary! I've been thinking about you and praying for you all week.

I've been having a few symptoms, too, but I hate to get my hopes up. Seems impossible when I am supposed to test on Christmas. I have been SUPER mean and moody at times this week, and TIRED. no PMS pimples yet, although I did get this rashy looking stuff on my cheeks this week, it was really weird. I've had some cramps too. UGG. If we don't get pregnant this month, we are pretty much done until August because hubby is going back to school and won't be home except weekends.

This has been the LONGEST week, you guys. My job is such that I'm BUSY BUSY BUSY BUSY then NOTHING. So the last few weeks was crazy busy then this week....sooooo sloooowwwww... Which has made my impatience get the better of me. Feeling "symptoms" - sore, swollen breasts, persistent cramp, headaches, dizziness. I did the recumbent bike yesterday and it just about did me in - which is not typical. Why can't it be Monday already?!

Love,
Hillary

Hi guys! I went to the Dr. today b/c I have a sinus infection and anyway he want to do a PT before putting me on an antibiotic b/c I'm on day 29 of my cycle. Anyway guess what?! I got a BFP! I am so excited. It looks like I will be due in August!

SUNNY, I don't hang out here much so I don't know you're whole story, but have you ever tried Vitex? It's an herbal supplement that encourages your body to make more progesterone (deficiency is usually the cause of spotty and short LPs). It's safe while breastfeeding, but you're supposed to quit taking it once pregnant, so I would talk to your doc about progesterone supps once you get a bfp. I had varying length LPs and have gotten pregnant twice within the first month of taking vitex.

Yesterday I wasn't very positive. I felt so hormonal and I had a tough day at work. I literally came home and cried like a baby. But, today I am feeling better. Like I said before, I didn't extend my LP, but the spotting in my LP stopped, so that was better than before. I think we're on the right track. Hopefully, my doctor will agree with me tomorrow and we'll figure out what to do next. And hopefully DH's doctors will have some good news for him when he goes next week.

Some days the TTC process seems so overwhelming. Between the issues I am having and the issues DH has it just seems like it is never going to happen. But I truly believe things happen for a reason and that this is just making us stronger and we'll be that much more prepared when we finally become parents!

I wish I could add more to this group! Sadly, I'm in my 2ww and no signs as of yet. I've been doing my best to focus on other things - like getting back on track healthwise. There were a couple months that I really thought I was pregnant and had the signs, and nothing, so I'm not really worried that I don't have any signs yet this month. If it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen. There's always next month. Or so I keep telling myself. ;) haha.
I'm feeling good, and more like myself, and attempting to pretend I'm not waiting.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for everyone! ! Hopefully we'll get a bunch of BFPs :)

Thanks SO much for the support. Another stressful dream last night in which I was told I had to wait 2 months for the result of a blood test. Ridiculous, I know. But that's where I'm at right now. I woke up in the middle of the night because I fell asleep with my arms crossed and my boobs hurt SO BAD! Of course, I got sore breasts in October, too, and nothing!

SUNNY - I am so sorry :( I know you were feeling really positive this month. I am so hopeful that the doctors will be able to figure something out to lengthen your LP. My guess is they'll put you on Progestirin (sp?).

Love,
Hillary

My husband and I stopped preventing a month ago and today I started AF, so it didn't happen this month. However, I went in for a preconception checkup and we're ready to start actively trying. Maybe January will be our month. Good luck to all!

I m getting so frustrated with this waiting period. One minute I think that I am pregnant, like this morning. I was so nauseaus. Then this afternoon I've been really crampy. I'm fully expecting AF to come anytime now. I'm on day 27. I just about sat down and cried the other day b/c a friend from H.S. wrote that she was pregnant again w/ their second and wants to know why I'm not pregnant with out second. I wanted to say, "Well I'd like to know why I'm not also!" Lots of babydust to everyone.

Congrats Sparhiala!

I am about 5 dpo and I was DETERMINED to not focus or think about getting preg this month, but alas-- seems to be impossible!! I slept 11 hours Saturday night, and although I got about 7.5 hours of sleep last night, I feel EXHAUSTED today. Also I am having some twitchiness... sigh. Here we go with my mind being determined to tell me I'm pregnant.

I have decided not to test early this month. My cycle is usually 25-27 days, so if it doesn't come by Christmas morning-- I'm testing! Ugg. I hope it's good news and not bad!!

Congratulations Sparhiala! Good luck! I hope you have a healthy 9 month long pregnancy.

You are halfway there CLUBHCTEA. Hang in there. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you!

I Ov on Saturday. Fingers crossed that this is the one. I will be finishing off my investigative cycle with the fertility clinic at the end of this week. I will probably get the results just in time for my next cycle if this one is not successful. Fingers crossed! Good luck everybody!

Congrats, SPARHIALA! I will be praying for a sticky baby for you!

I'm out for December. AF arrived on Saturday. My LP was only 7 days long! At least I didn't have any spotting in my LP other than the day before AF arrived, so that is an improvement. I go see the doctor on Wednesday to see what the next step is. DH gets his next SA a week from today. And the following day he has his first endocrinologist appointment. Hopefully, he will get some good news.

CONGRATS and good luck sparhiala!!!!

JENNA - I can't do home pregnancy tests. I had to do an injection of Ovidrel, which is a "super ovulatory" drug and it can cause false positives on pee tests. So, if on Dec. 21 (15DPO) I haven't gotten AF, then I get a blood test.

Love,
Hillary

Thanks. Unfortunately, I won't be having a lucky month for awhile. My BF lives in a different state than I do. Wish I was at the point of actually trying to conceive but we're not. At least I can continue working on losing weight. Still have 50 lbs to go at least.

ELFMAGE7, I'm so sorry! Maybe next month will be your lucky month!

I'm 6dpo and haven't had any spotting yet (knock on wood.) I don't think I have had a month like this since I came off of the Nuvaring 10 months ago! I keep crossing my fingers that the clomid will make my LP extend as well...and well...for a little something nice to share at Christmas.

So tuesday I was suppose to start. However For the past 7 months I have been about 34 days which when it first stated I was scared cus I have been very regular at 28 days. Last week I did gain some weight but since then nothing no symptoms of pregnancy or period. Just before my period I crave chocolate especially double chocolate bownies but so far noting. I dont want to test cus Im tired of being disappointed every month. And I cant go to the doctor cus I dont have any health insurance but im working on that. Thinking of testing in a week or two if nothing comes. Hears to hoping.

I am about 3-4 days away from ovulation... so hopefully something sticks! :) I have been using the Clearblue Easy Ovulation Kit..my advice is to definitely go digital. I hate trying to decide if the two blue lines are the same shade of blue! My eyes play tricks on me so I keep shoving them in my husband's face and asking ARE THEY THE SAME SHADE? Haha. GOOD LUCK TO ALL DEC HOPEFULS!!

What I love about yoga is its such a nice combination of strength, flexibility and meditation. I'm not convinced I could turn my head off enough to just meditate for an hour. But if I'm concentrating on making my body strong while taking deep breaths for an hour, somehow that's SO much better.

Love,
Hillary

Best Wishes to Everyone!!!

I'm just still waiting it out right now..My cycles since september have been about 5 days off from each other, so not exactly sure when to expect AF if it arrives... Proably early next week. I have really been paying attention to my body and charting and all, just still not sure if I am really ovulating, so we'll see.

Clubtecha, I need to probably do some more yoga like you are! I am such a stress case, always have been about everything! I have a hard time letting my body just relax!! Sometimes I feel as though I'm not thinking about it, but then I breathe deeply and I just don't feel as knotted up in my stomach. Hope all is going well with you!!

Thanks! We might have to cross some fingers in hopes that I can even get into town. If it snows more I might get stuck at home. I have a car and it's not so good in tons of snow since I live on a dirt road that doesn't get plowed.

Two days and then I'll test. Hope to find answers because it's the only test I can afford right now.

Yeah, I figured it was the clomid. What a joy this bloat is...I seriously had to squeeze into pants this morning! Hopefully, the clomid will do its job and extend my lp at least!

Hillary, I have a good feeling about this month for you! I think you're going to get an early Christmas present...a BFP!

JENNAPENNIE: Sounds like you have a good plan! Keep thinking positive. It's gonna happen for you.

I am hanging out waiting to see what happens in the 2 week wait. No spotting yet, which is better than it was last month. Man, I do have some MAJOR bloating this month. I usually get a little bloat, but I think maybe the clomid is causing some major bloat to happen. I seriously looked pregnant last night. I'm avoiding salty food and pushing water. Hopefully that will help. I'm trying to just remain relaxed and keep my mind occupied with other things this 2 week wait. We timed things so we bd'd the day before o and the day after, so hopefully we have a chance this month.

Good luck to everyone in their 2ww. I"m just heading in to my fertile period now. I have been going for fertility testing this cycle but I won't find out the results until after this cycle is over. But I have been reading a lot about TTC and I heard that relaxing really helps. So this cycle I"m going to do Yoga, accupunture (apparently that helps fertility), and get frequent massages. And then just try to relax. I hope this helps!

Good luck everybody!

Hillary - Good luck and I'm sending much baby dust your way.

I'm in the 2 week waiting right now. If I get AF it will be right around Christmas.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be

What would it be like if you lived each day, each breath, as a work of art in progress? Imagine that you are a masterpiece unfolding, every second of every day, a work of art taking form with every breath."~Thomas Crum

SUNNY - I'm glad you ovulated!! Hopefully you and DH had some intimate time :)

Had my IUI this morning and you know, I'm feeling pretty good. I did 45 minutes of yoga before I left. Then while waiting for the nurse, I did some prana yama (yogic breathing) for a few minutes to try and find a calm. After the procedure I was supposed to lay there for 15 minutes. I decided to take it one step further and do a couple inversions on the table - boy am I glad no one walked in on that! I also had my iPod with some of my favorite tunes to keep me calm.

So...yeah....now I wait! If I haven't started AF by Dec. 21, I go in for a blood test. Apparently the Ovidrel (an injectible drug that forces ovulation) can cause false positives with home pregnancy tests.

Good luck to all the other ladies - I SO hope that this is our month!

Love,
Hillary

Hillary, I am thinking of you this morning and hoping that the IUI went well! I have a good feeling about it this month for you!

I believe that I have ovulated. We'll see what happens this month. I would be estatic with a BFP, but I would even be happy if I have a normal luteal phase (no spotting and it lasting the length it should!)

My AF will be here on Christmas or the day after. I have been trying to not focus on getting pregnant b/c it has been so upsetting to me, but it's so hard! Every morning I wake up and think of what cycle day I'm on :/
