....14 DPO....bfn.....hot as a fire. Not sure how many more days going to keep up with the progesterone...thought my period was still supposed to say hello anyway.

Still negative this morning. Followed by other crappy stuff happening today too. Had a good cry about it tonight.
I'm going to bow out of this team for now, as we will pretty much be taking a break from ttc for a while. Best wishes to all of you, and I hope you all get bfp's soon!

As for me, I was really getting my hopes up today as I was having hot flashes (not normal for me) and feeling "off", so I tested this evening... and it was bfn. I'll retest tomorrow with fmu to confirm but I'm pretty sure I'm out. We aren't doing another assisted cycle in the foreseeable future so I'll just concentrate on my weight loss and be thankful for the child I do have.

12DPO....negative this morning. Feeling really crappy. Had a bad day. Over the moon for a coworker that is 13 weeks after a m/c and d&c but it's all anyone could talk about today and I had to actually go in the bathroom and choke back tears. Then everyone started talking about other preggers and m/c's and how someone is due when I would have been and there was round two of near tears. Not sure how long I am going to do simply progesterone....or what else we might do. Really depressed and downtrodden and thinking AF is impending.

Sorry Chris.

Testing tomorrow... I keep flip flopping between feeling hopeful and not. No spotting, but I'm on a high dose of progesterone. My lower abdomen feels tender and somewhat crampy though like my uterus would like to spot if it could.
My husband said no more dr assisted cycles so I really hope this IUI worked!

I tested this morning at 10dpo and it was a glaring negative. I know it's early, but I still can't help but feel less optimistic. I was thinking of testing Wednesday, but I've decided to just wait until my official test day of Friday so I can report to the RE then.

According to FF my period should start tomorrow. I am pretty sure we missed the O window this month so I am not holding out any hope that AF doesn't show this week. I am moving on to November, but FX to anyone still left in October.

Sorry Gwenn, hated to give false optimism. Angie, fingers crossed! Cat, you're a few days ahead of me, I am 9DPO. Sunshine, hope all goes well!

Phew, lots of luck and love to everyone.

Hating that the progesterone screws with symptoms. Trying to hold out til Friday to test....will be 13DPO. But will also be home. @sigh@

Sorry you're out Gwenn! Hope next month will be better!

WarmSunshine, I know how frustrating it can be to have pregnant colleagues. Stay positive. Hope you'll get positive new at the Dr.!

I'm 11DPO now. Tested BFN yesterday. I know it was too early to test, but I couldn't help myself. Feel like AF is on the way though. No pregnancy symptoms, only PMS..

Warmsunshine - Hope you get good news at the doctor with nice follies and that the polyp went away.
Gwenn - Sorry about AF.

9 days post-IUI here. I've been really super tired the past couple days... even took a nap today which is rare for me. DH is convinced I'm pg; I think it's from the progesterone supplements. Official testing day is next Friday... I do have 3 tests on hand (a dollar store one and 2 FRER) so I may test early just to use them up. I have Wednesday off work so tempted to test then so I can absorb whichever news it is at home that day, good or bad, lol.

Hope those signs are right malissa!

I'm headed to the Dr on Thurs to see if I have a follicle ready to go, and also to see if my body got rid of a polyp on its own. Could be headed to a D&C to remove it...

In other news I now have 3 pregnant colleagues. I hope you all can understand how frustrating that can be....

Temp dipped this morning, however, yes, I know a few temps don't mean anything but getting overly excited.

Had a slight tinge to the left side today and randomly did a temp. Comparing to the two cycles I had a positive, it seemed around day 6-7 I charted various pelvic signs (I didn't know until later that you could add symptoms, which in think accounts for the disparity.) Going to try not to read too much into it (though clearly I already am). 6DPO, at least 6 more days until I might know something, given past history.

Too early for start of my period but it definitely seems more than spotting and my temp has been the same for 3 days, but still above coverline. I'm expecting a drop early I think.

8DPO. Looks like I had a bit of temp dip 6-7DPO, but that could mean nothing. 7 more days of waiting to go.

Good luck. Today is 7dpo and I had some bizarre cramping on my left side along with brown spotting. Sounds too "classic" so I will just remain hopeful. I have been quite stressed this week so that could be my issues too.

Chris- I wish I could help you. My inclination is CD12, but I can totally understand why others think it is CD14. Personally for me, I O'd the same day as my positive OPK. If you have the VIP version (I think you do cuz you can track all your symptoms) you can ask on the VIP message boards for one of their moderators to look at your chart. They are extremely helpful! Also, your English is great! I had no idea it was a second language for you. Lol. I thought maybe you had moved to the Netherlands! emoticon

Chris- I would you o'd on CD 14 by your chart because of your temp and your opk. The opk is usually postive 24-48 hours before you ovulate and just like Gwen said your usually need 3 higher temps. Although I know that I sometimes don't agree with what FF says and know by what my body is telling me.

Still no sign of AF and I don't think it's going to happen. Looks like I'll be scheduling a Dr app for the first of November to start some testing.

Hi all! Good luck with the IUI, Angie! Our insurance will cover up to $10k of fertility treatments, which I know is not a lot once things get going. I think we'll just relax the rest of the year - there's so much going on that I don't want to add the stress of intense TTC. I realized I had a problem yesterday when I asked my husband why the shampoo wasn't in our shower and he said he took it to the other bathroom to take a bath. Freaking out about my husband in the tub is a strong sign that we need to settle down and relax! We're going to have bad timing again this month: I'm off to Atlanta for 3 days and then we're going to my uncle's house for the weekend. I've stopped temping and OPKs this month too. Maybe taking a couple months to focus on the rest of life and trying to get these 10 pounds gone will be better in the long run.

Gwenn, glad to hear things are getting more clear now!

Baby dust and happiness to all! So excited to see that a couple of you are so close to meeting your little one!

I believe they selected the day they did by taking your temps into account with your CM and OPK (and I imagine CP, but I never charted that and have no idea what it all means!). Granted, I also never did OPKs, so I don't know when the positive usually shows up. . . but based on CM and temps alone, I'd probably agree with day 12.

For not feeling stressed about AF, I'd suggest expecting it on the later date just for the sake of nerves.

Thanks Gwenn! Oh and I know that my LP stays the same. That's what I meant.

If FF says O on CD12 and it turned out to be CD14, than I could think that AF was two days late (high expectations = stress) instead of exactly on time (less stress). If I think O on CD14 while it was actually CD12, then it would appear AF would be early. Wow this reasoning is difficult with English not being my first language!

Anyway, thanks for you input!

Hi there!

I looked at your chart and it looks like you O'd on CD14 because there should be 3 temps higher than the low temp. Of course that's my interpretation! Good luck! And I believe that your LP shouldn't be less because of a later O date. Usually it will stay the same - so it should be the same number of days after O.

So, FF says I'm 6dpo today (straight cross-line), but I think I'm actually 4dpo. Played around with the methods on FF, set it from advanced to research and now it says I'm 4dpo (again with a straight line). I think I'll leave it that way this month. Don't want to think AF is 2 days late, just because I O'd later. The other way around would be less stressful.

Could you guys take a look and tell me what you think? O on CD12 or 14?? My chart:

Angie I hope this is your month!

Good luck everyone!

Well with this morning's temp, FF said I am now 3dpo, which is kind of what I thought by the way my temps were.

Good luck to everyone!! Hope you will all be sharing BFPs soon!

Angie- hope those cramps go away and you will be sharing some great news soon!

Gwenn- I hope you caught that egg!! I can understand the feeling of not wanting to BD. I really didn't think we had a shot at all but I was so pleasantly surprised. I hope this is the same for you!!

Malissa- due to my work schedule, I never truly got a positive OPK. I could only test with FMU and while I got close to it being the same color as the control, it was never a true positive. It took three cycles for me to recognize what was "positive" for me. It helped me by taking pictures immediately after the testing time was done. I moved them all into a folder on my phone so I could compare back and forth which seemed the closest to the control line. Also, it's important to remember that the actual darkness of the color doesn't matter, but rather how it compares in degree of closeness to the control. My best reasoning for this is that each test may have a slightly different amount of dye in it that could make the control lines different shades. I hope that makes sense. Re: IUI and IVF, I have a friend who has been trying 3+ years and her insurance doesn't cover anything. We live in NJ so the cost everything is steep here but the IUI was around $3500 for the one try. That didn't work so they moved to IVF and that is costing about $12,000. They unfortunately had to take a loan out. She has PCOS and endometriosis and this is probably their last attempt. I really feel for her and everyone who is struggling.

Baby dust to everyone!

Good luck Angie!

I would have to pay out of pocket too. I'm not even sure if I'll even go to an RE if I can't get pregnant soon.

Good luck to all waiting for O or in their TWW. My temp spiked up today so waiting to confirm O.

Yeah, due to cost. Our insurance doesn't cover any infertility stuff so it's all out of pocket.

Not to be nosy, but why once? Cost or other factors?

Good luck to all those trying to catch the egg right now!
I had my IUI today. I was a bit worried about DH's count because he said he didn't give a good sample (just wasn't into it, lol), but it was 11 million and they said they like it over 5 mill so 11 was good. I'm a bit concerned about only having 1 egg though (per yesterday's ultrasound).
I'm really crampy this evening and spotted quite a bit after the procedure, but they said to expect that.
Now we just need to wait 2 weeks and see if it worked! I hope so because DH said we are only doing this once.

Ahhh. I confused the 2. Thanks for the information. I think this will be very helpful as the last cycle i missed the surge on the test but felt the pinch of the O. I start testing tomorrow for the next cycle. I'll try to test later in the day.
THANK YOU! so much to learn
