March/April Waiting Friends

Postby ~~amy~~ » Wed Mar 18, 2015 6:43 am

Hoping all of our old friends made it over to here and maybe we can pick up some new ones too!!

To start off as a quick summary...

I am 31, DH 40. We've been TTC for 13 months now, ever since my husband's vasectomy reversal. He has 2 kids, I have none. Now on CD13, thinking O is today. I got what I think may have been a + OPK this morning. This cycle trying EOD BDing, preseed, lots of water, robitussin, prenatal vitamins, hubby is on multivitamin... the whole works!

Anyway, welcome all! :)

Hi Amy!! Good luck catching that egg! I am rooting for you. and would love to wait with you.

A little about me: I am 31, husband is 30. We were married in June 2013 and are trying for our first baby. We have been TTC since the fall -- got pregnant in November, but sadly lost that baby at 12 weeks. Following the MC, we had a CP last month -- I think my lining was not thick enough after the MC! I am CD7 and hoping for a BFP and HEALTHY pregnancy this month.

Good Luck to ALL!

Hello again ladies!

I am fairly convinced this cycle is a CP cycle again, so like Eagermom, just waiting for AF's arrival.

Tua - glad you found us here! Your updates are great hope for us!

Mandi, Highland, Eager - We are all here for you!! Something great is planned for you, I just know! We just have to wait and see what (and when)! :)

Katy - I'm sorry to hear about your losses. I've seen you around the sight, and am glad you have joined us! I've heard of many people getting their sticky BFP after a MC or a CP! FX for you! TWW is coming up!

Charlie - Hi!! I know waiting is so so hard!! 13 months in, and it doesn't get any easier. You seem to be a little further in your cycle than the rest of us. Maybe you can jump start this thread with a BFP!! :) Wishing you the best!

Hello!

CD14 today. Last night had tons of ewcm. This I think is completely due to the robitussin and water drinking! Anyway, DH had a super late night from bowling last night. So when he got home he didn't want to DTD or this morning. So we have to get a BD in tonight to keep with my EOD plan! Not sure what to make of my temps, CM, and OPKs. Yesterday's could have been considered negative, and today it looked just the same. Maybe O is still to come or maybe it already happened. Oh the unknown is torture!

How is everyone doing today?? It's almost the weekend, so I'm sure we are all thankful for that! :)

How is everyone today?!?

Amy -- I know the frustration in figuring out O - and in getting DH to BD! It seems that the fertile window happens right around the time when life gets stressful -- someone is busy with work or someone is sick. ughhh.

Lindsey - how are you today? I saw on another thread that your temps are dropping? I'm sorry, I thought that this was the cycle...crazy how you got positive tests then negative then positive again. FX that this is the month. our easter egg hunt, right??

Everyone else -- how is everyone feeling? What cycle day are you?

AFM: We are on the EOD schedule until right before O when I hope to get in 3 BD's during fertile period to up our chances. But, last night I was cooking and baking for dinner club tonight (our turn to cook) so I came to bed late and DH was not feeling well. Since it was so early in my cycle (CD7) and O is not due for a week, I said lets skip and start EOD again tomorrow -- you know, Th, S, M, etc.. and then bam, woke up with a higher temp today. I have no reason my temp should be higher -- did not drink or wake up at a later time. Well, that's not true -- the only reason it could possibly be higher is that I slept through the night and did not rise to go to the bathroom, etc. However, I am worried that the higher temp means I O'd. However, I have had NO signs of impending O -- no positive OPKs, no EWCM, no feeling frisky, no O pains, etc, etc so I don't see how this is possible. Stupid me for not BD-ing last night!!

I looked through my old charts and I usually have a little up and down before a final drop then big rise at O. Usually the up and down is not as big as today's rise, but I am hopeful that O is still a few days away...as I am just now CD8. I will resume our EOD BD schedule today just in case O has not passed. I am hoping that the higher temp is just a fluke!! If not, I did at least get one BD in 2 days before O (but without preseed or EWCM, etc)...but I like to get more in! FX this is just a fluke. So frustrated right now...

Hi Gals,

i'm 34 DH 36, I'm CD5 with a 30-32 day cycle TTC baby #1 for 6 Months and no BFP in sight
Feel like I'm doing all the right things:
Using OPK
Checking CM
Using ovulation Calculators
BD every other day from end of AF
Lay down after BD for 15/20 mins
Taking Pre-Natal Vitamins
Don't smoke
ETC
But nothing will stick, i know that this time frame is perfectly normal, but as I'm sure you all feel similar when i say its exhausting and disappointing
But, on a positive, for me every cycle i try to do/try something new and different to help the process.
This cycle i am drinking Grapefruit juice, i read that it can help with increasing CM which i think i lack, so we'll see.
Do any of you have any tricks or tips to try that maybe have worked for you or someone you've known in the past?

Baby dust to all

Welcome, Nicole!! Sorry it has been such a frustrating and disappointing journey for you. I hope this cycle will be a good one for you! I don't really have any tricks, though this cycle I am taking Vitex to help try to lengthen my LP.

Highland, Ugh! Sorry girl. FX for those December babies!!

Highland and Mandi, this cycle is going to be great for the both of you, I just know it!

Katy, I hope your higher temp was just a fluke! I have a feeling it was, considering you said you have no other symptoms of ovulation.

Amy, ovulation must be so close with all of the EWCM! I'm crossing my fingers for you!!

Nicole it sounds like you are doing a lot to help! But I will tell you a couple of things that worked for me. I feel like either I'm insanely lucky, or I just used a really good combination of tricks! First, let me explain, I was on Femara for my bfp cycle, because it was suspected I wasn't ovulating due to pcos. So my very first Femara cycle was successful. But along with that, we bd'd every other day (started off as every day, but I ovulated late, so we slowed down by that point). We used pre-seed every time, which is something you should certainly consider especially if you think you are lacking cm. I also elevated my hips for about 20 min each time, and made sure I (externally) gave myself an orgasm after every bd. I had read that it helps pull the swimmers in! I also did 2 rounds of acupuncture leading up to ovulation, but that was more to aid ovulation. If you are already ovulating no problem, acupuncture would probably be totally unnecessary! I hope this helps. Good luck!!!

I just had my 2nd scan today, and all is well, measuring 8w5d!
