Thanks Malissa and QT, I am feeling better now. Just had one of those days. AF just decided to show today so it's on to the next cycle.

It's ok Dana. We all have those days. I hope you are feeling better today.

Not 100% sure what the heck my body is doing. I posted on another sites for some possible responses. I feel like my body is still in the fertile period. I actually had a positive opk yesterday, which is the 2nd one. So I know our bodies get a little whacked out after a pregnancy, but I wasn't pregnant for that long. I am supposed to get my period either Friday or Sat, but at this rate, I really am not sure! Fertility Friend has not marked an ovulation day for me either, but I will admit I started temping part way thru my cycle, so it's up in the air. So I just have to laugh at my self so I don't freak out about it. No point in doing that. It does seem that others have had this experience where your body tries to O again. I had no idea!

@hugs@ Dana. Had to be a hard day. Sucks cause this all seems so easy for everyone else. Hoping this morning still has the chance to give you good news,

Just a quick post.. Feeling kinda down... Went to my work BBQ and my coworkers all brought their kids, ranging from 18 months to 8 years old.. They were so adorable playing on the swings, swimming in the pool and trying to hit the volleyball. It just saddened me cuz I want that. I want to be a mom. It's funny cuz DH wanted to try for over a year before I felt ready, and now I'm kicking myself for waiting so long... I did still have a good time at the party but now that I'm home I'm a bit bummed. Hopefully I will feel better in the morning... Sorry to be a Debbie downer, but I just need to let that out.

Well, AF still not here but I was due today. Guess I will be testing in the AM. If neg, then will probably look at ordering some wondfro opks. I've been looking at reviews on thermometers but it's all so confusing. I have one, but it's not a basal. It does read in 0.1 degree increments but there's no memory, so may have to look into that too.

Fx for you QT!

Dana, you're not out until AF hits. It hurts when you hope so hard and it doesn't happen. But without hope, where are we?

QT, too early to count yourself out. Good luck to both of you.

Feel so puffy lately.

Sorry to hear that Dana. I'm hanging in there - haven't really confirmed O with my temps, but believe I am 3dpo, so I have a way to go. I expect AF next Friday/Saturday. I should keep a positive/hopeful attitude, but I really don't think this is my month either. We shall see!

Good luck Malissa! Hope it works out for you!

I broke down today and tested even though I'm pretty sure AF will be here by Saturday... BFN. Again, not surprised but disappointed cuz my signs were a little different this cycle and our timing was the best we've had so far. I suppose there is a slim chance still, but I'm guessing I will be seeing you on the August board as my next O won't be til the end of July. I hate long cycles!!!

Good luck to everyone else!

I am asking a huge favor of all of you- cross your fingers for another reason!

I got called to set up a phone interview for the full time teaching position! That's the good news. The bad news is that it's on a day I am scheduled to work 16 hours so I am frantically trying to find a switch so I can be at home and relaxed. Eeeeeekkkk!

Oh no! I hope it heals quickly!

We are headed on vacation early tomorrow—festival camping in NC. Our campsite doesn't have electricity, so I will likely be off the grid until Monday.

Tripped and rolled my ankle in the driveway today. Owie. Wrapped, elevated, and careful use of Tylenol. Not swollen but painful to bear weight. Thankfully off until Friday.

I also like fertility friend. You can get just as much use out of it, using the free version. The paid version gives you the ability to track more, print stuff out, and I'm not sure what else. But if you are new, they do give you a month of that free. Like the other ladies pointed out, they will give discounted prices on FB. I actually just checked out their site, and did not like them, but still was able to get the price.

I'm waiting to confirm O here. I think it was yesterday and we BD'd pretty regularly. Was going to last night but was too tired. Oh well!

I had used a simple fertility tracker before Fertiity Friend- I do very much like FF. the free page is fine, but when they discount it's awesome.

I do highly recommend the Wondfos- I like the mixed pack with OPKs and pregnancy tests together- you can get them in all kinds of configurations. Holy dashes, Batman, in my post.

I don't want to give you false hope, but on 7 DPO I felt deep chills and mild cramping, so fingers crossed!

I've never used anything other that fertilityfriend, so I can't help with comparison. They offer a free trial of their VIP to new folks, so it could be worth a try if you aren't overly happy with pink pad.

For all interested, there is currently a facebook offer for $24.95 for a 1 Year Membership. For those who don't want to publicly "like" a page, I was able to go into my security beforehand to hide likes.

Hope everyone is doing well!

I am still extremely tired lately. I broke down and tested yesterday even though AF isn't due til later this week. BFN. Not really surprised. I had some cramping today, so I hope that doesn't mean AF will be appearing. Guess we will see. If AF does show herself, I will be purchasing some opks (prolly wondfro) from amazon.

Also, I have been using pink pad for tracking but I know some of you have fertility friend. Is there a big difference? If you have used both, do you have a preference?

True confession:

Since I have about a bijillion tests that expire in October, I keep doing them at random times throughout the day and getting odd comfort from the positives.

Physical signs-hello!

That was one of my earliest symptoms (actually started the week before I tested). I was sooooo hungry all the time. Sometimes, even after I'd eaten. I figured out that if I consciously upped my protein intake it really helped. I didn't really have food aversions or throw up, though, so sometimes I know it can be hard to get enough to eat!

Great news, Jennifer!

I had a horrid 16 hour day at work yesterday, and am back at it for daylight shift. I barely got to get in 3 bottles of water, and didn't get lunch until 1:45. I ate breakfast at 6:05. Didn't get to touch my yogurt or applesauce.

Going to panic and possibly have to drive an hour later today if my progesterone doesn't arrive. Kinda tweaking.

Have a good day all.

My hcg numbers went from 137 to 404, so nearly tripled. Nurse sounded thrilled. I now have a first ultrasound appointment scheduled for July 3! I'm super excited . . . trying not to be nervous, as ultrasounds tend to be when I receive bad news.

Wow, haven't been on here for a while and I see the board totally exploding! Congrats to you Malissa and Jennifer!!!

Unfortunately I'm out for June. On to the next month... One minor thing: O-date will be right before my summer vacation, which means, I will be stressed from work during O (making sure everything is done before I go away for two weeks), not good for BD, AND I won't be able to have a drop of alcohol during my vacation in Italy (bye bye wine), and not even know if I'm pregnant after I get back (would be easier not to have wine when I actually knew I was pregnant).

Sorry, I'm a bit frustrated about the whole thing. My bad mood (AF!) will probably go away after tomorrow.

But, I'm soooo happy for Jennifer and Malissa!!! emoticon

Jennifer- Hope you get your results quickly!

I'm also living vicariously through you two. Although we've been trying since Feb, I recently got back from visiting friends out of state with young babies and I'm in full blown baby mode now. This TWW is killer. Have been very tired lately, but I don't know if that's just me hoping for signs. If no bfp this cycle, will probably go to temping and using opks next cycle.

Don't feel like you're taking over the board Malissa. I'm living vicariously through you. After being on this board together for so long, I'm almost as excited about your BFP as I would be for my own. And you too Jennifer. I'm looking forward to more updates!

Woohoo! I've always been told the particular numbers don't matter, only that they continue going up as they are supposed to. Yay for everything looking excellent!

My lab experience today was also weird. I had a different tech today. She hardly said a word to me, made me feel ridiculous when I told her I am now on heparin. She took two vials of blood from my right arm, pulled the needle out and then said "oh, I need one more," so proceeded to start over on my left arm.

I'm pretty sure she must have drawn blood for the order from Monday, as well, as I think I only had two tubes taken then. This was just supposed to be an HCG test. I ran into the tech from the other day on my way out, who immediately recognized and greeted me.

Oh well. Worst case (I'm hoping) is that I'll see how my progesterone has changed (since I've had two rounds of oral and a shot).

Eeeeek! Sorry I feel like I am overtaking this board-

Week 3 day 5, hcg was 29. Less than 48 hours later, week 4, day 0, it has slightly more than doubled to 71. Not amazingly high, but totally in the normal range. Eeeeeekkkkk!!

Now, I am angry. I left a message at the RE because I heard back way quicker the other day. I call the hospital to assure my STAT lab was performed, and they tell me yes, and they faxed it to my PCP ( who was NOT on the list of two MDs I gave), and my regular OBGYN, even though the primary MD I told them to send it to was the RE. They are supposedly faxing it now. Even though I work there, I hope I get a patient satisfaction survey cause I will thrash them.

Couldn't help myself. 4th morning urine First Response positive instantly. Telling myself to breathe! There's no use for panic.

I hear you! I made my appointment for noon (central time) which actually means I'll have to leave work early. But I didn't want to wait any longer!
And I wouldn't mind going with you so that I could have results today!

Seriously, Jennifer...I could use a breathing buddy. I keep telling myself it will be okay this time. Again woke up screaming hot, woke up oddly hungry (I always have to force myself to eat breakfast before work), and had to get up early to pee (but that's thanks to my redoubled efforts in fluid intake). Watching the news right now, got a little teary when they were talking abut Chuck Noll.

Also fixating on what time I can go get lab work done. I know it's 48 hours which would be about noon, and the nurse in my is running circles in a corner of my mind....but I really want to get this over with much earlier. Breathing. Breathing.

Oh my gosh!!! Congrats to both of you! I go away for a week'svacation and come back to two BFPs! I hope that everything continues to go well for you both. I'm currently in the TWW.

QT- I'm so sorry to read your news. I hope that nurse was just having a bad day and not like that all the time since she shouldn't be in the field if she is. Try to keep your head up and know that we are here for you if you need anything!

FINALLY got the results. Blood test confirmed! HCG at 137. Progesterone was low (but higher than last time) at 15.2, so adding the injectables back to the oral variety I started on last night. This means that on Tuesdays and Saturdays I get THREE shots. I may need a storage unit for all the syringes. There is NO way to be discreet carrying 60 syringes out of Walgreens.

I'll have the results of blood test #2 on Thursday (testing tomorrow).

I'm feeling really good. Trying to keep all fears at bay.

You poor, soon to bruised but happy soul.

And sadly, the discounts the pharmacy got me make the med cost less than what my insurance would have me pay. Seriously?

On a lovely note, first HCG came back at 29, so really truly positive! Eeeeeeeeek! :D

Boo. Sorry to hear that. Hoping insurance will be able to help! Hopefully they will at least cover another form of progesterone.

I will start my progesterone pills (oral) today and will hear back tomorrow if doc wants me to do injectables as well (I was on them last time for the first two weeks (then had more "fasting" labs that showed my levels went up) . . . I am supposed to start heparin today. Two shots daily. I apparently get to be on this for the entire pregnancy (or most? . . . let's be honest, I'm not remembering everything as well as I should right now).

Just got my first of two HCG levels today, another on Wednesday. Getting a refill for full time progesterone through week 12, twice a day. It's fricking $67 for a month. My. Insurance. Sucks.

Now talking to my prescription coverage to see if they can do anything. I have not been on the phone this much in such a short amount of time, I don't think even at work and I'm always on the phone, ever. Between two doctors, the hospital lab, the main insurance, the pharmacy, the script coverage.....yeesh.

Thank you. We have all been on this journey together. I'm going in today for lab work (HCG and progesterone). Will repeat HCG on Wednesday. Nurse is consulting with doc about when I need to begin heparin injections (the new thing we are trying this go around in case I have some clotting issue in addition to the MTHFR strands). Who knew fertility/pregnancy would be the things to have me on all sorts of pills/shots?

If we had more than one car, I'd totally have done that! We downsized this year since I currently walk to work (a block away from our apartment). I used my first ever dollar store test. Part of me thinks "maybe I used it wrong?"

My hubs always leaves early, and he knew I was probably going to test. He didn't know I was going to test, then run out, buy more tests, retest, and send him a picture. Which didn't send at first (we need new phones). Trying to remain calm.

YAY! And since we ovulated at the same time, that would mean we are due date twins (well, according to sites like fertility friend that factor that rather than just date of last period). Sadly my doctor's office is not open for another 20 minutes . . . and I'm at work. Wondering how distreet I can be if I simply close the door (not many people work on my hall) . . .

Hubby did not (and does not) know that I bought a test yesterday. He had a REALLY early morning shift, so I've decided to text him random vague messages all day. First one was "l l"

If I'm reading the test correctly, looks like I may have a BFP. I really want to be excited about this . . . but after two miscarriages I still have trouble believing that this means anything for me. Third time's the charm?

11DPO. Maybe the progesterone will help with luteal phase issues. Hopefully it does more. But since I woke up hot pre-suppository, I have been waking up screaming hot and sweaty. Fun, fun.

I just had my very 1st +OPK this AM! This may sound dumb, but with my PCOS, I think I only really expected to see blank negative circles.... not the smiley face that I saw this morning. I've also been using the Fertility friend app, and it's right on time, which even surprises me more. I know not to get my hopes up, but my faith in my ovaries was just so low... perhaps there is hope :)

QTLady- So sorry for your experience. That nurse should feel stupid for doing a bad job at talking to you- you shouldn't feel stupid.

On another note, the application for full time nursing faculty closed today, so here's hoping I hear something good on that front.

Lisa, the doc did tell me that, so I started on 3DPO, but thank you for the tip and the thoughts and kind words.

Not feeling greatly optimistic this month, didn't do the greatest BD'ing. And had my characteristic to AF pickle craving tonight...lol.

Malissa - Been checking in here to see how you're doing and was happy to see you've been to the RE and they got you on progesterone. I was on it with the last 2 pregnancies... it will make you feel crazy and pregnant and tired and everything... that's what I hated most about it. But eventually it did what it was supposed to do. One thing I didn't know that I thought I'd share is that you shouldn't start taking it until a few days after O (my dr never told me this so I thought I'd pass it along)... I had about 3 cycles where I took it the day I got a +OPK and I read and found out later that taking it too soon can keep you from ovulating. No wonder! The next month I took it about 3 days after O and that was my lucky month. Good luck, I'm cheering for a +HPT soon for you!

QTLady - Sorry to hear about your experience... cheering for you... it's hard :( And I think that nurse is terrible for making you feel stupid and telling you that you would know... I didn't know until week 10 when I had a bad ultrasound on my second one. I hate that she made you feel that way.

Fingers crossed for everyone!

Lisa :)
