Thanks for the great information about Vitex. I will definitely keep it in mind. I was thinking I would wait on changing anything this next cycle and see what the HSG does for me. If nothing happens, then I will look into Vitex a bit more. That's great that you are going to have a daughter and a son. I'm so happy for you- I know it's been a long road for you as well!

MrsKp- woohoo for the positive digi!! Keep us posted on how your betas come back. Refresh my memory- is this your first child? When you got your BFP did you call your OBGYN and request a beta test? How did that work? Just curious so that I know what to do if I ever get a BFP....Ha!

Still waiting on AF to show up...Hopefully she shows up tomorrow so that I'm on track with the date I requested for the HSG and will also be able to get the first blood test done on Monday.

Have a great Thursday ladies! Almost Friday!!! :)

HCG 81 last night just before the digital! Early pregnancy is right on. I bet the FRER and easy@home were picking up faints close to a level of 25 on Monday!!! The easy@home was later and fainter but def not the usual stark white. Good to know they work nicely!
I had a crazy dream last night my levels were already 5000 and I had a molar pregnancy and no one would evaluate me.... I bet my pregnancy dreams are going to be insane.
So I'm a pediatrician and my Ob works in my building. I saw her back in nov and we checked hormone levels as I was still spotting a lot coming off OCP in July. She knows I'm a bit type A... So normally they have a "pregnancy confirmation appt" and talk about levels. But we are just drawing levels now to make sure things progress this week and next then I will have my first OB appt at 7 weeks (based on LMP, 6 weeks 3 days correcting late ovulation)... So every doc does it different, I think I'm getting a little professional curtesy...

I really hope you get to call and "demand" betas if you want next week :D

OK ladies-WHAT IN THE HECK IS GOING ON HERE?!?! I'm 15DPO today. I was expecting AF to show up yesterday for sure, but the witch never showed. In fact, my temp went up by .1 yesterday. So of course I got myself a little too excited thinking this was it. I was trying to play it down in my head but in the back of my mind I was jumping out of my skin in excitement. I got home from work and let the pups out, fed them their dinner and ran upstairs to pull out a cheapie HPT. Needless to say all of my excitement went by the wayside when that test showed nothing except a stark white space where I was so sure a second line would be. :( Ahhh- that's what I get for thinking my body did the right thing this cycle.

Anyway- so I'm just waiting for AF to finally show! FF marked today as AF day anyway, which I don't really know why- as I was looking back at my previous charts- most of the time my LP is 13 days, and maybe one or two 14 day LP's. So for it to mark 15dpo as AF day seemed off to me. I guess if the witch doesn't show today I will take another test tomorrow with FMU as I know the tests say that it's best to use FMU. I'm not getting my hopes up again though ladies- I will keep you posted.

Did you ladies test with FMU every time you tested with the HPT? Or did you just test with whatever. I just find it so weird that I didn't see anything on that test last night...I kind of felt like maybe I was preggo- had some symptoms but didn't want to jinx anything so I didn't share them on the boards or even tell anyone. But my BBS have felt full and a little tender on the sides since O came. Usually a few days before AF, they deflate and no longer feel tender- that hasn't happened yet. I went to spin class on Wednesday night and was really struggling to keep up and was getting some crazy stomach pains- not the normal AF crampy type pains, but a pain like you ran too fast and got a cramp kind of a pain. And that NEVER happens while I'm in that class (I've been going for over 4 years). I also felt really bloated that day and the bloated feel hasn't really gone away. Yesterday while driving to work I had all of these bubbly type feelings in my stomach right below my belly button- I was writing it off as I was hungry and maybe it was just my stomach grumbling, but again-it felt different that the normal grumbly stomach feeling. What do you guys think?

With the cheapie test, its usually pretty accurate, however, it's not over till the witch shows up! Have you tried a blood test?? You can use blood on a cheapie test and it will detect a positive quicker than urine.

This is my fifth cycle...I started tracking CP, CM, temps, using OPK, drinking raspberry leaf tea (promotes a healthy uterus for the egg) and taking premomma to help me ovulate quicker. This is the first month in a while where I got a positive OPK and it was on CD12, so I have plenty of time to let my egg implant..I ovulated 3 days ago, so I just started the TTW...it's tough not to agonize over every little symptom lol

Thanks Loulou- I've been trying for over a year and a half and have never seen a BFP. So I was really not expecting much at all out of this cycle, especially since I know I'm going in for an HSG this coming Thursday because of all the struggles we have had. Trust me when I say I am not a symptom spotter at all- as I've been at this for far too long, but things just feel a little different this go around. I haven't tried blood on the cheapie- I have never heard that you could do that. I think I will just wait it out. I'm sure AF is on her way- she just wants to torture me for another day or so- making me sit in limbo. I hope that your cycle ends in a BFP!! FX for you!

Ah staying! Craziness! Can you post a link to your chart? Can't see on mobile view in sigi. I typically used FMU or a urine that was really yellow. Got a neg on a dilute urine and on a digi concentrated urine. The cheapies were so faint, but frer clear. Maybe tomorrow if no AF take one of those??? This happened to me two cycles ago and I got ob to do a blood test and nurse called with BFN that night.
What's CM looking like? Any streaking????? I'm so anxious for you :)

I'm anxious for me too! haha!! Let me know if this link works for my chart : http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/StayingHopeful
Temp did drop a little today, but not down to or past the cover line and my cover line is higher than it has been in previous cycles. As far as CM- not much going on there- pretty dry- is that a good thing?? When you say streaking, what do you mean? :-) If AF doesn't show today/tomorrow morning, I'm going to test with FMU tomorrow morning. I don't have any FRER. I've got some dollar store brand and then some cheapie easy@hope sticks (which is the one I took yest) and then also bought an 8pack of easy@home HPT's a while ago, but I'm assuming those will be the same as the cheapies since they are the same brand. Maybe I will go out and buy myself an FRER after work today if I still have nothing going on.

If AF is going to show though, I really hope it shows today so that my HSG appt isn't messed up. I will have to move it if it comes any later than probably tomorrow.

All the excitement for nothing. Just went to the bathroom and I was spotting. The witch will be in full force by the end of the day. :cry: I am such an idiot for thinking that my body was going to act like a woman and I would fall pregnant. Guess it looks like I'm going for that HSG after all. :|

Staying - I am so so sorry! I really hope you get some answers and so some success following the HSG. Your charts always look so wonderful, I can't imagine what the problem is! Did you say DH has had a SA before? How does he handle this?

MrsKp- Thanks- I'm anxious just to get the HSG done and hopefully hear good news that my tubes are clear! Yes, DH had his SA and an ultrasound- all is good! Monday I will be going for labs, Thursday will be the HSG and then CD21 I go for the second round of labs. I'm thinking about adding vitex like Southern suggested, but I don't know if I should wait until the cycle post HSG? If only I knew what the right thing to do was. I seriously cannot believe how much is involved in getting pregnant. If I knew it was going to take this long, I probably would have started trying earlier.

Southern- Vitex- which did you order? Nature's way? That's the one I'm checking out on Amazon. Tks!

stayinghopeful31-Hopefully we both get our BFP this month! My hubby is worn out, I have been making him dtd almost every day and I think he's ready for a breather ;)

Today is CD16, 4 or 5DPO and I'm not seeing anything unusual happen other than a heavy feeling in uterus (could be gas..), but I'm staying positive until I see AF.

Hi ladies! Sorry I've been mia - I had family come into town last week and just busy cleaning and getting ready for dd's birthday party this past weekend. Everything was a success.

Staying - sorry to hear about af!! Yes, Nature's Way is the brand 3x a day until bfp. Honestly I would do all I could this cycle to get ahead of the game. Yes you may not know if it was the Vitex or HSG, but maybe you need both? Who knows? Vitex shouldn't hurt you though (from what I've read) so you should be all right regardless.

MrsK how are you feeling?

Loulou, welcome and good luck!

Nothing much new here. We told family and friends this weekend when they came over for the party. It was really nice. We had a full house!
