I'm sorry Amproske. TTC is such an emotional journey.. I've been trying since Jan 2014 and I will say, it is definitely difficult to keep going. I can completely understand your thought process as you don't know how long it could take for #3.

I am definitely out as of today. I am really really tired y'all. We've been trying since since July. Before baby #2 we actively tried for 2.5 years. I am really coming to a fork in the road here. And I am bummed but trying to remind myself to be thankful for the two wonderful children I have.

I just started using OPKs today. I am on CD11. There was a second line, but it was very faint. I bought the super cheap ones so I think I am going to test twice a day and hopefully catch it. We are trying to BD every other day regardless, but DH had a crazy stressful work week so this week didn't work out so good. That is over though so we should be good to go for the rest of the month.

Fingers crossed for everybody! Hopefully we can flood the April board with BFPs and maybe see some more before March is through. :)

I've been out of the loop. it's been a busy month. Took some time not to dwell on this process as last month the stress of everything made us miss a positive OPK. Our bodies sure can be hard to figure out.

Congrats Crns15!
Sorry Gwen & Chris that you are out, but hang in there our time will come....
AMPROSKE1 - fingers crossed!
Katie good luck on IVF.....

Got positive OPK yesterday temp hasn't spiked yet todya! that good. I've been getting positive OPK the night before the spike. maybe we caught the egg this time

Baby dust to all...stay positive. the process can definitely be a marathon instead of a sprint.

nothing is impossible, the word itself says i'm possible!!!

I've been gone for a bit, so just got caught up with all the doings. Sorry about this cycle, Gwenn. Hugs! Chris, I know how you feel. I wish there would be something that we could actually do to just fix it and get our BFP -- it would help our DHs and us!

We made the call last week to try IVF. With MFI, there's no point in trying IUIs, and my insurance has an infertility max, so we decided to try to go for it...but just once. If it doesn't work, we'll look into adoption. So this cycle is my last chance naturally, and with the stress of the big IVF decision and work being far too busy, I still haven't O'ed yet and my nice 28-day cycle that was the basis for timing things seems to have gone out the window. I'm expecting AF right at the end of March/beginning of April, so I'll still be around here cheering you all on! Good luck and happy baby making to all!

I will test on Saturday if nothing happens. I am not getting my hopes up too much. I don't want to test early.
Gwenn I'm sorry. My husband says the same thing to me and it's such a hard thing to do even when insurance helps.

AMPROSKE - I had spotting the day before my BFP. You're never truly out until AF shows. Fingers crossed for you.

Gwenn - I'm so sorry, I understand how hard it is. Hang in there and know you have lots of support here.

Thanks. Yeah, I knew this was the outcome so I cried a few days ago. Last night tried to have a discussion about my frustration with my husband. He said, just go to the doctor, but he's not understanding we pay for 100% of it now.

I think I am out. Noticed some spotting earlier and pretty sure it means AF is here. 4 days early y'all. Why? I'm so confused. And frustrated. I really don't know where to go from here at this point.

I'm sorry Artistcat. I'm pretty sure I'm out, most likely tomorrow. Oh well. My temps have progressively gone lower, so tomorrow should be below my crosshairs. The positive part is that it looks like my LP extended to 2 days, despite the spotting, and that is a good thing!

Drinking more water could help for sure! I'm glad you were able to talk things thru with your SO. I'm sure that was a relief for you. I know I understand, as well as many of the ladies here, that we go through so many ups and downs during this journey. I am currently at that low point myself. Two days ago I was high. I guess that is part of life.

8dpo today and my temp dropped more from yesterday. I'm not really banking on anything, but you never know. I'm expecting AF will be on her way in the next couple of days. This just gets old, doesn't it? Hugs to you and all that are trying.

Thanks Gwenn. I have never tried pre-seed (or any other lubricants). Usually we don't need it. I think for now I will be focusing on drinking more water, which I haven't been doing lately. I think it was just incidental. If not, I'll see if I can get pre-seed here in NL.

12DPO today. Feeling a bit better today. Had a long talk with my SO this weekend, which was good! I tend to ignore my emotions until I explode. So I'm trying to take better care of myself and to listen to my feelings more. It's hard, but I'll have to accept that this is a difficult journey. I'll have to accept that sometimes I will feel like crap, but that that's OK too.

Also, tested BFN yesterday. I'm kind of waiting for AF to show, but hey, never say never!

Eeee Gwenn, sounds promising! Not to get too excited for you. But I am sending baby dust your way and crossing my fingers and toes for you! I got a positive at 8 dpo so if you don't get AF on Monday maybe test on Tuesday with a FRER.

I set up my doctors appt for March 25 and I am on a waitlist to see if I can get a midwife. She said I'd likely know in a couple weeks so crossing my fingers. Luckily I feel like I called as early as I possibly could.

6dpo today and my temp stayed the same as yesterday's. Last night I had brown spotting and a bit of red. I do have a problem with spotting so it's not entirely surprising. This cycle is so weird because I'm not really sure how I will make it to next Friday at all, which is what FF is suggesting as AF arriving/test day. My LP is really short and so I'm scared my period will come on Monday. I think I'll know I'm pregnant if I make it past then!

I have instituted a new workout program, which is pretty intense, as well as a new diet plan. This could be affecting my body, which could be part of the spotting yesterday. The other thing that happened was when I went to bed, my left side was like a dull ache and I ended up taking some tylenol pm, which caused the pain to subside. Could have been gas pains, could have been something else. So far, I haven't had much spotting today. I will see what happens after my workout.

Wow, so it would be a lower percentage if you had treatment? Did they say why? How frustrating! Have you tried pre-seed? I have heard alot of women use it when they don't have a lot of the EWCM. It's also better to use than other lubricants, as most lubricants are harmful to the sperm.

I'm so sorry for how much of an emotional roller coaster this has been for you. I am thinking of you!

Congrats Crins15!!! It's great to see another BFP on the board. Enjoy!

10DPO here. Timing was good, but I haven't seen any EWCM this month (or last month for that matter). I'm not very hopeful.

Had my last dr.'s appointment and everything was OK. They said that without fertility treatment they estimate we have a chance of 39% to be pregnant within a year. With treatment that would be 30%. So back to trying the natural way for now....

Have a weird feeling about it. I'm glad they didn't find anything wrong. But I feel so incredibly frustrated. We've had good timing for almost every cycle, but nothing has happened until now. Not a single positive test. I'm so tired and emotional lately. I'm picking fights with my SO even though I really don't want to fight. I feel like crying almost every day. And I don't really know what to do to feel better.

Sorry for the rant, but I really needed to get it out...

Hmmm...So this morning my temp went higher (not complaining), but FF changed my O day again to Sunday, which is still good. Maybe even better than the previous. So that would mean I'm now 5dpo...again. ha! Still a long way to go.

So being as impatient as I am and as curious as I am... I just had to know if that little squinty line was there... I had bought a Frer to use on Saturday... well then I came home and tested and got a BFP. The line is lighter then the control but still very clearly visible! !! So anyway now just hoping everything will go well from here on out!

Dani - your doctor may have thought you were nuts, but you did what worked for you with all those OPKs. Congrats again!

Crins15 - cautious congratulations to you too!

Gwenn - I'm sorry to hear of your DH's grandfather and of everything that needs to be done in the aftermath. It's great that he can take care of it, despite the rotten timing. Hopefully everything will calm down soon and work out.

Fingers crossed! I found a site called countdowntopregnancy that people will post pictures of their tests and ask people to vote on them!

How exciting, CRINS15. I thought your symptoms sounded promising yesterday, but a second line means pregnant! It doesn't really matter if it's faint or not! Hoping that line continues to darken for you and that this means you've really gotten your BFP!!

So being the impatient person I am, I tested this morning.... I am not getting my hopes up but there was a very very faint line... I thought I could almost be imagining it but I had tested yesterday and there was absolutely nothing not even a slight reflection then so I am pretty sure it wasn't just my eyes playing tricks on me. Anyway going to wait til Saturday to test again and I'll get a better one then dollarstore brand. So fingers ccrossed I am not actually crazy lol! Also I woke up again last night at 430 am to pee and super hot and my temp was still up (my chart is starting to look triphasic! )

I hear Ya on the eating well and struggling with hubby... I feel like I can either have fun (eat drink etc) and be merry with hubby or I can be healthy. Really tough making that choice all the time!

I have started paying attention to CM too. I never did before because I honestly didn't even know to. The last few months I have noticed a difference during the fertile time. This cycle I had ewcm last Tuesday and Wednesday so we started trying on Wednesday. I didn't get a positive on my opk until Saturday evening. We bd on Friday and Sunday though so we definitely timed everything right according to both I think. Today is 3 dpo. Long wait ahead! I think if we aren't successful this month we will probably only try a couple more months. I'm taking my medicine and trying to stick to my diet but it has been hard. DH loves to eat out a lot so I struggle with healthy choices some. We will see though!

Now there's where I mighthae ver missed not testing twice during the peak times... Going by CM was the real deal for me.... I bought the super cheap OPK from Wondflo (sp?) and didn't know what I was doing so I started using the strips from the day after my period stopped to 5-6 days after my predicted O date.... My doc thought I was nuts... Oh well!

I agree with Gwenn. I am glad I test twice a day towards the peak too because otherwise I think I might have missed the happy face.

Usually I will use 5 or 6 test cartridges now from the digital. When I'm getting close to peak, I test twice a day. If I start testing earlier than I know is worth it, I use my cheap sticks.

I have never used OPK's but I think it depends on how early you start using them and when you finally get your positive. If you use a fertility tracker like Fertility Friend it might be able to at least pinpoint to when O should happen and you could start using them a few days to a week before then? That's likely what I would do if I were using them, but maybe someone who actually uses them has a better answer for you!

Sorry Rachel :( Sending great vibes for next month!

Crin- symptom spotting is very difficult to do for sure! Just remember that progesterone mimics many pregnancy symptoms but I know.....it's still easy to look at everything :)

Funny story...our power went out last night randomly. Wasn't a storm, no wind, no one hit a power line. It was off for about 30-45 minutes. Turns out a raccoon was the cause of it!! How random!

Today I finally got my crosshairs! 4dpo today. Based on this, I still received a "good" rating.

AF made her appearance yesterday afternoon. I am not surprised, but still a little disappointed. I am going to try using OPKs this time around. Hopefully they will help us get the timing right and I will be sharing happier news in April. :) Good luck to everyone still in it this month.

So I put in my temperature for today on FF and it now decided that I O'd on cd16 instead of cd15 which means that today is only 8dpo. Kind of annoying and at least our bd'ing still coincided with O so we should still be ok. But that means a whole extra day to wait! I had a terrible sleep last night. Woke up to pee when my husband came to bed (normally I sleep the night through) and then I woke up and thought it was almost time to get up but my alarm wasn't going off so I checked and it was only 430am and I was wide awake! I eventually feel back asleep thankfully. Also had another dream last night that I got a positive pregnancy test (even though I actually took one today which was negative, but I thought I was 9dpo, not 8). I was super bloated this morning like my tummy stuck out looking like it was pregnant lol. I didn't have any of these things last month but last month was also my first full month off BCP and I don't remember from before I was on BCP if this type of stuff happened a week before AF or not. I know I am almost positive that I never had cramping until AF came and although I do remember having bloating, I believe it was usually only a day or two before. I keep telling myself I will stop symptom spotting but it is so hard not to.

Fingers crossed for you girls. It was this week last year that I found out we were expecting, and I'm hoping to see lots more BFPs for this group soon!

Haha I know Dani! I will likely wear compression stockings when the time comes becasuse my sister got varicose veins from pregnancy (and even wore compression) but I hope I can do without pantyhose hahah! And that is awesome to hear!! Sending positive vibes and prayers your way!

LOVE the funny dreams! I would hate nine months in compression pantyhose!!! LOL!!!

Rachel my goodness you are one tough cookie to be able to wait till Friday to test! I have fingers and toes crossed for both of you! YAY!!!

On my end, nothing weird going on here and no bleeding yet - at this point we are past where we were with the miscarriage so I am feeling hopeful! No symptoms and we are only one week away from our first prenatal appointment. YAY!!!

HUGS LADIES!

Not holding out much hope this time. FF is still not giving me cross hairs and I have short cycles, so unless my body is holding out on O'ing, I should be getting my period next Monday and I didn't O. If I play around with the interpretation it's possible I'm either 5dpo or 2dpo. Big difference! LOL. I could bet on 5, but my temps aren't going high enough.

So annoying!
