emoticon YONDYN!! How exciting for you!!

NBradford, I know how you feel. I have not had a non-drug induced cycle in probably 5 years. I have only ovulated once last summer with the help of Clomid and a HCG shot to release the eggs. We took a break after that for a change in fertility Dr's because we were not happy with the one we were going to.

I am with a new Dr now and really liking him. He is an RE as well. Something he told me that was a surprise was that 50mg is really the highest dose of Clomid, that studies show there is no gain to increasing the dose from that. He also told me that it is normal for Clomid to take a few cycles to get built up in your body enough to actually make you ovulate.

I think this info will really help me have realistic expectations for my cycles coming up...we are starting again with my next cycle. But as I do not ovulate, I will have to induce a period with Prometrium starting in a few days.

So I feel your frustration and hope that if this is new info for you too it helps ease your frustration!

Jen

Just wanted to throw out again that OPKs can be positive due to pregnancy also, so if you're getting a positive result many days in a row, I'd do a pregnancy test to verify.

And just for the record, though it's rarely the case if your cycles are regular, it is possible to ovulate really early in the cycle, some women even ovulate while still on their periods! Some women have period-like bleeding for the first few months of pregnancy - I personally met one woman who didn't know she was pregnant until 5 months, because she had a regular 'period' - and she was thin, not obese.

Congrats YONDYN.

So I have a question. What is the longest number of positive days in a row that anyone has gotten using the OPKs? I'm getting a result I didn't expect.

What didn't kill me made me stronger. I'm a very strong soul.

Met with the RE yesterday and found out my progesterone levels were at 1.6. Not good! So it looks like 50 mg of Clomid is not going to do it. I have to wait until Feb 1 to see if I bleed on my own. If I don't then, I start taking Prometrium on the 1st to get a withdrawal bleed. It's so frustrating!! I'm just so angry that it's happening to me. I've gone two years without a period! I don't even know if you could call it TTC?!

If hunger isn't the problem, then food isn't the solution!

Keep your diet clean and your workouts dirty!

AF showed up right on time. And now I'm on round 4 of Clomid. DH and I are going to try one more time and then wait until May if I don't get my BFP. (As much as we want a baby, we really don't want to have one around the holidays.)
We already have our appointment set up at the fertility clinic for April. I hope I get to cancel it ... by conceiving on our own. But if not, at least we have a plan in place and will start with IUI in May.
Cheers and Congratulations to the BFP of the month!

first off, Congrats YONDYN! So exciting. I wish you a healthy pregnancy!

second off, i'm a chronic late or delayed ovulator. my doc said he'd put me on clomid in march if nothing happened in the prev four months. well, i contemplated for a whole cycle on whether or not to try some soy isoflavones. i don't have any health concerns and its supposed to be like clomid. i'm very much a person who takes supplements and tries to keep things as natural as possible. after much research, i decided to try the soy on cycle days 3-7 and i actually ovulated a whole week to week and half earlier. so right now i ovulated on cycle day 18. even if it amounts to nothing, i'm excited to think i can get one more month in before i have to go back to the doctor.

wishing everyone luck!

Great news this morning...BFP!!!!! emoticon

I tested for the 4th time at 40 days since my last period. I had started testing at 28 days and was not that hopeful since I had already gotten 3 negatives. But, I kept reading stories about other women who either got later BFP's or just had a slower rise in hormone levels. So, I tried to remain positive.

I have had symptoms like very sore breasts, unusual abdominal twinges, difficulty sleeping at night, feeling really hot or really cold and lowered sex drive for a while (which I usually have an increase before my period). So, I thought I might be pregnant, but after a few disappointments in previous cycles and all the BFNs, I was skeptical.

Thanks for the encouragement during the 2ww. Since I don't know anyone else going through the same things right now, it is nice to know you all are there. It is also fun to tell someone right away. Since I have had 2 miscarriages, I think we will be waiting longer to tell most folks except for a few very supportive family members.

I hope this starts a big POSITIVE trend for the second half of January. I pray for extra courage for those of you who have been waiting and trying for a long time. Even though I seem to get pregnant fairly easily, I know what it is to wait since we still have not yet had the joy of a full-term baby that we could cherish on this earth.

Baby blessings to all!

Awww, thanks guys :D

KELLY, DH just asked his regular Dr. for it, so that would be at least the first step. I hope your Dr. is willing to at least start the process, though many don't like to because statistically it can take a completely normal couple up to a year to get pregnant. It is really hard to wait!!

Hello Everyone,
AF showed up pretty much right after I posted yesterday. I am going to talk to my Gyn and ask him if we can start doing some testing. He wanted us to wait a full year until we did anything, but we have been at this for 9cycles with good BD timing, and we are both pretty healthy. I really respect the women who have been at this for years, it really takes a lot of strength to keep trying month after month. On cycle 10 of TTC. Good Luck to Everyone.

STMUELLER sorry about AF! I hope the HSG goes well and follows with a BFP!!!

Good Luck Everyone!

In the past I have not really needed to track anything -periods were like clockwork and I got pregnant on first or second try. But, after 2nd miscarriage, periods have been irregular. I have had a lot of stress since we have stopped preventing in the fall. I want to be pregnant soon, so we just stopped preventing, but were not actively trying yet. Now, life is less stressful again. So I thought I would wait and see if periods became more predictable again. Now it is 38 days and still no period. And I only have one pregnancy test left.

Since pregnancy tests are super expensive here in Norway, I am trying to hold off a little longer since I've gotten 3BFN's. I don't want to use my last test and then get my period that day. So, I have decided to wait until Sunday to test again (40 days). In the meantime, I think I have some signs, but they could just be PMS as well. It helps not to dwell on it and to write it out here to get out the frustration. If I get my period, I think I will try at least tracking temps and maybe OPK's as well.

Have you tried the OKPs? Do you track your temps? That should help a little with the predicting part.

Well, I am trying very hard not to get frustrated, but my 2ww is turning into more like a 3ww. I am in limbo land of confusing, irregular cycles. tested BFN 3 times, but it is day 36 and still no AF. So, not sure how long I should wait it out until testing again. The longest cycle I have had in the past few months has been 36 days. I know it could go longer, but i didn't think I had O signs that late...just not sure.

We ended up not doing an IUI this month because I ovulated over New Year's when the gyn clinic wasn't open. We did "try" on our own although we certainly don't expect that to work. I am currently 9dpo. I am not going to test until 14dpo though.

In the meantime, I have set up an appointment with the RE on January 28th. I am really ready to get going and hopefully get good news this year! We were originally going to do 3 iui w/ my regular ob/gyn, but I just don't seem to ovulate when they are open so we're moving onto the next step!

Oh and this is the cheapest by far. Some wanted over $300.

The thing is if AF shows up then I'll have an u/s done on day 2 so they'll be looking at things anyways. I just don't want to do this one cause I'm in pain then have to do another a few days later...also if somethings wrong she may not let us try next month or take clomid so I can't really just not get it done if i'm still hurting.

It's so annoying. I keep sitting here going do I hurt as bad as yesterday, is this getting better, am I losing my mind? LOL

Sorry for the rant, but honestly, if you can't even get an u/s without the cost being a major finacial burden, that's just wrong! And that you even have to consider the cost/benefit of getting a potentially crucial examination, that's wrong, too.

So theoretically it could happen that you'd test positive for a kidney infection and still have something going on in your reproductive organs, but would stop looking...not trying to scare you though, I'm sure your doctor will stay on top of this. I hope that the issue is resolved soon!

Hey KellyBurdette, you and I are cycle buddies this month! I'm 7 DPO-ish today, and I'll be testing if AF doesn't show on Friday the 14th. Not sure if I'm hopeful or not this cycle because I've had no symptoms at all yet, but we did get in several well-timed attempts this time so that is a plus!

They did a urine kidney test. Neg but last time I had one it came back neg twice. They did a pelvic. Found out my cervix is striaght back. Don't know what that means, I know its not normal.

They did a blood preg test and cbc to check my kidney. Hcg could be neg and wrong since I'm only 9 or 10dpo. That'll be back Monday the other could be Tuesday. Two u/s Tuesday.

She poked me everywhere so now I feel like death plus that was the worst pelvic I've ever had.

Guess ill know Tuesday. Thanks for hangin with me I'm sure I've reached my complaining max with you guys.

I wrote that yesterday but couldn't get it to post. I'm feeling a tad better today so I'm praying that means it just a kidney infection and i won't have to pay the $160 for the two u/s.

OUSOONERCHICK04 - How did your appointment go today?

AF was due today, but since we didn't do any BDing in the last cycle, I know it's not because I'm pregnant. I have a feeling that since I really started to focus on working out in the last month, I'm sure that's the reason for it to be late.

Good luck and here's hoping for a lot of BFP's this month.

My husband and I have been discussing our situation with TTC. We have been trying for a year, and seriously trying for about 9 months. Well I decided, and my husband agreed with me, is that we both need to focus on our weight loss for a while before we start to try again. We will not be preventing it, if it happens that would be wonderful. But we would both like to lose more, especially me, because when I do become pregnant I want a healthy pregnancy. I don't want to develop gestational diabetes, or high blood pressure or the many other complications that can occur with being obese.

I wish you all the best this month and the months to come!

Hi ladies. I guess I'm still a hopeful for January, however, I don't think this is going to be our month. We were doing really well over the holidays, but on New Year's Day we got a call that a dear friend of my husband took his life. It's thrown our world upsidedown, and we've understandibly not "been in the mood."

We're doing a lot of crying and a lot of talking, but it just really puts things in perspective. Stressing about having sex at the right time just doesn't seem that important anymore.

As a positive, I've had some cramping, and this morning I had some pain in my right side, so I take that as a good sign that I may have actually ovulated. Since the news, I haven't been remembering to take an OPK, but hopefully I'll feel some closure after the funeral tomorrow. On Saturday I'll do some bloodwork to check progesterone levels to see if I ovulated. If I did, and we're not pregnant, then I think we'll just "stay the course" and do Clomid and Metformin next month.

If hunger isn't the problem, then food isn't the solution!

Keep your diet clean and your workouts dirty!

OUSOONERCHICK04 - I am sorry your DH doesn't get it!! Maybe you should punch him in the stomach so he is in pain too? LOL jk... well, mostly anyway. Have you cried yet? That tends to make guys less in the mood.
Hopefully your doctor will be able to figure out what is going on. It is no fun to be in pain like that!!

Well I gave in today and called the RE as the cramping got really bad last night. She doesn't think its ectopic or the metformin but maybe a bad cycst. She told me to try ibprofen and call her tomorrow. If it doesn't work they made do an u/s. Great just what I need when ttc. Ahhh plus DH is upset I'm not in the were not baby making mood. Hejust wants to have sex and fun as he called it sinc3 I'm not oving. I'm hurting and he doesn't get. I feel really bad but what can I do.

Ok, I caved today (Jan 4th - I am living with my husband in Norway right now, so we are 6-7hours ahead of those in North America). I tested and got a BFN. It may be early since it would have been 28 days today and I could have O'd later than I thought. So, now I should have more patience to wait for the weekend to test again if AF does not show up. I have a feeling I am just not pregnant though. Oh well, if not, it will be another month to improve my health beforehand.

I just wanted to see how everyone is doing...I just found out on Sunday that I'm pregnant. We are very excited but cautiously so...I know all too well that just because you are pregnant doesn't mean you'll get a living baby at the end so I'm just trying to get through each day with grace. :-)

We just got the update on DH ultrasound, yesterday. It seems that there were several findings. Not good. On the plus side, though, his hormone levels were fine. So we're going to try this month, with me on clomid, and him on mega vitamins to see if we can conceive on our own. If not, (and I'm pretty sure we won't) then we'll be at it again in May and have our first round of IUI or IVF ... whatever we're better candidates for.
Let 2011 be the year for all of us to get that BFP we've been waiting for!

Hi Ladies, I'm back!

I know I haven't been around in a few months, but I am still on the baby train and am 2 DPO-ish today. I haven't been charting my temps in the last couple of months as I have a pretty reliable cycle that I have gotten to know well over the last 10 cycles, and so have been doing EOD and OPK's only.

Was supposed to have an HSG this cycle but this ended up being one of my short cycles so with Christmas the timing was too far off. If AF shows this cycle I'll be scheduling it for around Jan 20th.

Who is still here and who is gone that I know? I know Katiewhompus and Hillary are gone (Yay! in a good way, that came out sounding rude LOL).

I think the cramping could be my bladder/kidney issuses flaring up. That normally give me more back pain than cramping but umm I. Started taking the med just in cause so well see how the next couple days go.

I really don't think I need to take a hpt as I know I ov Tuesday night or wed morning last week so. The cramping isn't really bad nor is it all the time. I don't know what to think anymore. I'm just trying to hold out another week before testing.

Ya, I know what you mean... I think that, in the end, the issues will be on my DH's side of things, but I can't say that to him because he wouldn't appreciate that very much. He had an accident in his youth that could cause some serious issues, but he doesn't want anybody to know about it. He doesn't want to talk about it. He doesn't want to acknowledge it... he is of the mind set that if you ignore it then it will go away. One day he will figure out that is not true! lol

Yep, my daughter is our shared progeny. emoticon

But, it took 10 months to conceive her. I had convinced him to go to the Doc and have things checked out, and he talked me into waiting until after our vacation. We conceived two days after our return.

I do wonder though if the trouble might be on his end so to speak. It seems like (using TCOYF) that I am all good, but I guess I can not really say for sure.

Just trying to stay positive. Trying to not get too down about it all. It is nice to have support here.

OUSOONERCHICK04 - Hopefully the cramps get better... maybe the cramps could be related to something else?

YONDYN - A good, regular routine will definitely help!

YOGINIMAMA108 - Very understandable to be frusterated! Is your daughter from your hubby? Or is she from another relationship? Sometimes fertility doesn't run in the family. If y'all continue to have issues it may be good to have your hubby check his end of things out as well.

Ousoonerchick, I'd do a HPT. An OPK strip can be positive if you're pregnant, too. So it could be possible that you Od sooner than expected.

If you test positive for pregnancy, definitely see your ob/gyn. If not, it's probably safe to wait it out, unless the pain gets worse.

In the 2ww, but am feeling like we did not conceive this round either. I am beginning to get frustrated. My hubby's family is SO fertile! There are 3 moms in waiting now, and I am still not one of them. Sometimes I want to just say forget it, but if I would have given up at this point the first time, I would not have my daughter. It is so disheartening.

Thanks for the vent, I needed it. Hopes for us all in the early months of 2011!

Hi All! I am a January hopeful currently in the 2ww and will be testing by the weekend if i can wait that long. My periods have been irregular (anywhere from 26-36 days), but it seemed "O" signs were there in the week before Christmas.

On the exercise-front things have been a bit confusing between moving and not preventing. I hesitate to work out too hard in case I might be pregnant, but try to keep some thread of exercise going even if it does not equal weight loss. Now we have finally moved into our own place again after 4-5 months of travelling. It always helps to get into some routine. So, my goal for now is to try to get some regular routine of exercise going again.

Best wishes to all!

I lied. The cramping is back. I don't understand. It's not horrible just annoying. I'm also really tried and bloated which is not normal for me. It's just so early (only 4 or 5dpo) so these can't be pregnancy symptoms can they? I feel like I'm going crazy and or making stuff up in my head. Maybe i'm getting sick.

I'm onto January as well. AF is due on Friday. No BDing for us in December due to timing issues, so I know there will be no BFP for us this time. I think that since the timing will be sometime mid January, I'm actually a Feb hopeful.
Hoping to see lots of BFP's this year!

I am a 2011 hopeful, but I don't think I will be a January hopeful. I am a week late for my period and it has been two months since my last one. So I am going on progesterone to kick start a cycle. My cycle won't start until the second week in January which I guess slates me for a February hopeful.

But I will cheer all the January hopefuls on from the sidelines!!

It's below where my hip bone sticks out but above my pelvic bone. I can feel it sitting here but it really hurts when I walk around or try to climb the one flight of stairs to our 2nd floor apt.

I'm joining too. AF is due Jan 1st...How's that for starting off the new year? LOL. I don't think I'm preggo and if AF doesn't show then I'll be testing on Sunday the 2nd...but I'm not feeling it so I doubt it. I know it's stress that is keeping me from conceiving, but how the heck to you control that without being drunk 24/7? Lol. I really hope there are some BFP's for all of us in 2011!!

I'm joining the January Hopefuls now. AF showed her ugly face this morning. I guess she doesn't realize how much I dislike unwanted visitors.

My normal 30-32 days cycle has now turned in to a 28 day cycle over the last few months, so I guess I need to adjust to that.

I've been tracking everything on fertility friend, but I may have to just go buy some ovulation tests.

Good luck to you all this month!

might as well count us in as well. never know when i'll O but if i guess based on an average, it will be around our 1yr anniversary :) keeping focus that i basically only have this cycle and one more until my doc will move to clomid since i show a chronic hormone disconnect with my late ovulation. so that is something to look forward to :) good luck everyone.

Joining the January Hopefuls...AF came right on schedule, although she is acting strange...Maybe due to all the stress this month. Just got over being sick. Whatever I had, had me in bed with fever for 4 days and miserable for over a week. Positive thoughts for 2011. Next O to happen around Anniversay, fingers are crossed...Want to wish everyone best wishes foe the New Year...Baby Dust for everyone... emoticon

AF is starting and I got a BFN. IUI#1 didn't work so we're onto a New Year. We're not sure if we can get in for an IUI this month...If all goes like the last few months I will be ovulating over New Year's! But either way, we'll try!

I'll be a January hopeful. I'm waiting for AF to arrive from the progesterone I just got done taking. It should be any day now, and then I continue to take Metformin and Clomid this cycle. I won't be able to test until mid-January. This is going to be my year! After the first, DH and I are beginning the adoption process, so one way or another, I'm on my way to becoming a mommy!

So AF and POAS negative. We thought we had it, but looks like we're on to January.
