Ooo mama good luck!

So last night was the worst! Had to go to the ER because I have a bladder infection. :oops:

So now I'm all hopped up on antibiotics and other stuff to make me feel better. Hopefully non of you ever have one. :doh:

On the plus I got cross hairs. I'm not sure how this will affect me, so it's just wait and see.

Steph - Oh no! I've been lucky enough to have never had one but I know it can be awful! I wouldn't think the antibiotics would affect anything too much, especially since you already ovulated. Ahhh, it's always something isn't it lol.

-opk again today for me, I go in later this afternoon for a follicle scan so we shall see what's going on. My chart is interesting. So if you remember, I mentioned really early in the cycle that I felt like I was going to ovulate any day. I got what looked like EWCM on day 6, which is crazy and took opks on days 6 and 7 which were negative of course. I didn't test on day 8 because I figured it was ridiculously early and I wasn't going to waste them. It will be interesting to see what my temps do over the next couple of days because lo and behold if it doesn't look like I may have ovulated on day 10 and probably missed my +opk on day 8. My temp usually goes up on the 2nd day after a +opk. Crazy huh? I'm in suspense to see what the follicle scan shows today.

That's so crazy? It would be so weird if you ovulated so early. Drugs are making me sleepy and I'm sitting at home watching Gilmore Girls. Not my true plan for today. I hope I feel better tomorrow :(

Well keep us posted on that scan Shannon and Liz any news?

My hope was short lived.. CD1 for me this evening :cry: I can't believe how I allowed myself to be fooled. I'm trying now for 2 and half years and never in all my cycles have I had symptoms so strong. How could I get it so wrong.
I'm so disappointed in myself, not the fact that I'm not pregnant because that I'm used to.. But the fact I allowed myself to really believe it was happening. :sob:


SMS - sorry you're not so good, wishing you a speedy recovery.

Keep - Another great example of how our body can trick us! I really hope you haven't missed your window, perhaps it was just gearing up for ovulation but didn't? Please update on your follicle check when you can.

Oh mama, I know that feeling all too well. It's such a mind game isn't it. I'd love to know the women who were on the show " I didn't know I was pregnant" really didn't know.

Well we're here for you.

Oh no, so sorry mama! Sounded so promising. I know the feeling all to well also then feel mad at myself for thinking otherwise. :hugs:

I'll update, not even sure if they can tell whether I've ovulated already. I'm sure I haven't but my temps are creeping up so has me wondering. Could just be a couple of odd temps. All I know is one, or the combination of these supplements, have made me feel very "ovulaty" since day 5, it's weird. We have bd covered, so that's not really an issue, but I would like to have seen what my follicles were doing and it's not good if I did ovulate that early.

Hello ladies, happy hump day! :rofl:

Well the nurse said she didn't see any indication of ovulation yet and my temp went back down today (yay!). I had a 15 and two smaller ones (7 and 5) on the left, none on the right again and my lining was 6.5. So with that information, we expect ovulation to be Friday or Saturday which will be CD15 or 16, which is much better and gives my lining time to thicken up some more :)

Hope you ladies have a wonderful day! It's absolutely beautiful outside this morning and makes it really hard to be stuck in this office!!

Ooo, that's good news Shan. I'm glad you got that confirmation.

I'm feeling better and I can't wait to be done with my antibiotics. I feel like I'm taking all these pills. So I'm hoping my temp goes above 98, that to me is a sign in the right direction. Only time will tell!

So glad you are feeling better Steph!

I'm so upset right now I just don't even know what to do. I received a message yesterday afternoon from the RE's nurse and she said that if I didn't get a positive opk that the RE wanted me to come back in this morning for a re-check. I didn't get a positive, so I called her back and asked why the urgency since it was only day 12, I normally ovulate on my own and the follicle didn't seem ready yet. She said he wanted to make sure that we don't miss ovulation and check to be sure the follicle is growing, etc. Ok fine, no big deal. Well so we go in this morning, he does a quick scan and says the follicle doesn't appear to be getting bigger and probably "not a functional follicle". He also measured my lining and said it was only 4.8. WTF??? I mean really, did it drop that much in a day?

Oh it gets better. So he's flipping through my chart and asks me what ovulation meds I'm taking. I told him none and reminded him that I haven't taken any for about 4 months now. He was confused and said there must have some miscommunication because he assumed I was taking something at our last visit and the dexamethasone he gave me was supposed to be taken in conjunction with an ovulation med. Really....so it's looking like this is a f'in waste of a cycle. I'm so pissed right now. I don't have time to be wasting and I thought the whole point was to try to get the eggs healthier. It's like he wasn't even at our last appointment! So frustrating. Anyway, so we did a blood draw to check the estradiol level to see if this follicle is functional and if I may ovulate here at some point, I'll have the result later today. Grrr.......

I guess my whole frustration is with what seemed like a lack of interest/information on his part of what we are doing. I feel like we have made zero progress with his help. The 3 times we've gotten pregnant has been without any meds/assistance from him and it seems that the cycles that he gives me something to "help", it just ends up f'in up my cycle. Ehhh.....ok I'm done venting.

Hope you ladies are having a better day :) Thanks for giving me a place to get my craziness out!

Aww, vent away girl. That is super frustrating. I would probably fly off the handle. Definitely feeling better as I keep taking my meds. I keep drinking a ton of water too, which means I pee like every hour. I'll be glad when this mess is all over. Just sitting and waiting over here. 4DPO, had a slight temp dip, no symptoms at all. We'll be in Philly the weekend I'm supposed to "test" I'll probably just wait until the Monday after and if no AF I'll test. I'm holding out this time, no sense in wasting my money.

I always have every intention of waiting but we know I have no self control :rofl:

So I feel a little better after my melt down earlier. They called me a little while ago and said my estradiol was only 17 and said it's a cyst. This is the first cyst I've had in the 2 years we've been ttc. They called me in a prescription for tamoxifen and femara, which I will start tonight and will take both for 5 days, then I'll go back in 10 days to see if that jump started any follicles. Hey whatever, this cycle isn't looking promising anyway so might as well give this a shot. Wish me luck :)

Oh good luck! Keep us updated. I'm just sitting and waiting. Since the beginning of this year I think I've gained 15lbs. I would love to drop 10lbs again. Back to boring healthy evening lol. Need to get back to my routine again. Gah I hate feeling fat, even though I know I'm not. I think this is all part of my body adjusting.

Ugh tell me about it. I've gained about 10 lbs over the past year, which doesn't sound like much, but I'm small and 10 lbs shows....really shows. I need to do something. This desk job is what did me in, I was used to moving constantly at work, so this sitting around is not good. I try to get up and move around as much as I can, go up and down the stairs a few times a day, but doesn't seem to be helping too much lol. I never got rid of my winter fluff and we are knocking on winter's door again!! :rofl:

How's everyone else doing?

Liz - Any word yet????? :D

Hang in there Shannon!
Hoping all works out for you Steph :)

Well, I am low risk for all the genetic disorders they tested for :) :) and my husband came home with a white gift bag last night. Inside was a blue and white hat that read "Dude"! He included some other cute baby clothes too.. Ahhh!! Its a boy! We are over the moon! I have my 12 week ultrasound on Weds. Will keep you posted. Hope everyone else is well!
