I'm still feeling pretty good. Cramping more today than I have... dull ache throughout pelvis. Sometimes I think it's intestinal... not sure. Making me a little nervous though... Sore bbs, wanted to take my bra off at work! and crying this AM while looking at announcement examples... too many baby shoes with puppy feet :(

Random side note - passed OB at lunch today - she was so excited to see me (haven't seen her in person since my checkup in the fall) - I knew it could be trouble, since I was walking with my sr partner/boss... so I was trying to high tail it out of there.. she goes "how ya feeling" - I was like Good! then my boss started talking to them about something work related... Then we departed. I left a msg with her nurse saying sorry if I came across rude - I didn't want my boss to find out yet, lots of call schedule rearranging to do first! close call! Def makes me not want to tell anyone else just yet...

DH's brother has Trisomy 21... we are really interested in getting the cell free DNA testing done asap - but earliest is 9 weeks... which is right at Easter... and I want to know those results before I announce to everyone. So I need to work that out...

Staying - CD3 labs today? when will you know results? What day is the HSG again? I def don't think vitex will hurt, I would give it a shot!

Southern- Sounds like you had a great weekend and very exciting that you got to tell the family. Did you tell everyone the gender as well? Have you told your DD yet? How does she feel about a little brother?

MrsKp- wow- close call with your OB, but I'm really surprised she would kind of start that conversation when I'm sure she knows that most people don't tell co-workers they are pregnant until 12-14wks. Anyway- glad your colleague didn't catch on :-). Are you feeling okay otherwise? Do you think you are going to find out the gender? How is your pup doing these days? I know how hard it is. I am hoping she is still doing okay and that you are still making some great memories with her. ughh :( - that must be super hard to see the announcements with the puppy feet. Hang in there!

AFM- I still haven't decided if I will take the vitex although it did arrive in the mail yesterday. So we will see. I kind of want to see what my labs come back with first. If there is nothing wrong with my levels, then I don't know I should take it. All of the websites that I have found information about it all say to consult your physician before taking it. So maybe when she calls about my lab results I will see what she thinks. Although I know that if my labs are good she will tell me there is no need. I always worry about the side effects as well. I read it can bring on headaches and I am a migraine sufferer, so I'm hesitant because of that.

I did get the CD3 labs done yesterday. The woman wasn't able to fully fill the vial. She said that I have very tiny veins and that she probably should have used a smaller needle. She said that she should be able to make it work with what she got. Hope she is right. This happens all the time when I have to do blood work. I'm just glad she didn't blow the vein. Not sure when I will get the results back. They didn't say and I didn't ask either- I was more concerned with just getting out of there to make it to work on time. HSG is Thursday. Can't wait to get that over with. We can't start BD'ing until after the exam. But that's okay- HSG CD7 and we usually start to BD CD8.

Hey MrsKp- the HSG was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. It was a little painful but it went quick so I just closed my eyes and tried to power through it. I had some mild cramping on and off and felt a bit bloated later that day, but other than that not too bad. The male doctor wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I just tried not to think about it too much. The tech girls were very nice so that was helpful in making me feel a little more comfortable. I think from check in to completion it was a total of maybe 25 minutes. He told me that he wanted to take a closer look at the x-rays but from what he saw, everything looked normal. So that was re-assuring. Glad it is done and over with. We BD'd last night and that maybe wasn't the best idea because although I feel okay, there is definitely some tenderness internally.

Awesome! Well BD away if you can, make the most of the flush. When do you follow up to review the labs and results? Are you also set up for DPO7 (CD21 classically) labs?

Yup- cd21 to check progesterone. I think my Gyno plans to call me after everything comes in. But she said if she sees anything out of the ordinary of course she would call before the last blood test. I'm assuming no news is good news. I'm just so frustrated with all of this at this point. I think all of the bd'ing we've been doing is just for nothing. Some ladies I've been on the boards with BD like once in their fertile window after a few cycles of trying and get a BFP. I'm over here bd'ing every other day and all of this nonsense and get s**t. If we get deemed unexplained infertility I'm going to be pissed- there has to be a reason why we are not getting pregnant. I'm emotionally done with all of this to be honest. I don't even have any cycle buddies left- everyone has gotten pregnant. At this point it will be a miracle if we get pregnant. It's hard to stay happy for everyone when your the last man standing :-(

Hey ladies! I'd love to join your chat! I get so excited reading everyone's stories and waiting for that BFP message! Any updates??

AFM - I'm currently 9dpo and awaiting af or a missed af tomorrow or the day after. I have short cycles (22/23 days) and not 100% sure of my luteal phase since this is my first month using OPKs. I was trying to just do it the easy way and guessing everything. Well I found out I hate not knowing everything that is going on haha.

This cycle I haven't had any PMS symptoms and any of my usual spotting the week before af. No sore boobs or anything. Today at 9dpo I got a tinge of red/brown rusty looking blood when I wiped and now it's gone. I never know what to think.....

All HPT to this point have been negative.

Staying I'm glad you're hsg went well and you're not blocked! I can't wait to hear about your cd3 levels. That's exactly how I felt with my three losses last year. How could they be unexplained and so generic?? So frustrating! Hopefully the hsg cleared out some crap and it'll help this cycle!

MrsK I hope you're well!!

I'm sorry staying, :(
You have every right to be frustrated, ticked off - everything you are feeling is totally validated. I really really hope they find some answers for you, or at a minimum - come up with a plan to move forward with. I'm keeping my fx for you!

Hey Staying - Just doing a little chart stalking. Looks like you O'd right on schedule. Question for you for later this week - If your CD21 is only DPO 5 - does that matter? I thought it was preferable to have DPO7 labs... maybe two days doesn't matter.. but maybe helpful to put a call in to check? When do you follow up?
Fx for you!!!

Hi MrsKp- I'm pretty sure I O'ed CD16, which is a day or two later than usual (which I was expecting). I'm usually a CD14/15 gal. I have no idea about the labs- the dr. didn't really say anything like that to me. She just said CD3 and CD21. I think as long as you O prior to the blood work, they should be able to see that you have that progesterone rise. (which I'm not too concerned with as my temps always have a pretty decent rise). Considering the fact that I STILL have not gotten my CD3 results, I can only imagine how long it will take them to get back to me about my day 21 labs. I'm not even stressing about it though- I think we are going to be deemed "unexplained infertility". I'm just keeping my head up and hope that the HSG cleared anything that may have been in my tubes and I get a BFP this cycle. It's all I can do really. I will be calling them again today to see if they can tell me my day3 results. (ridiculous!)

I've been chart stalking you all week. FX FX FX FX
When is your next appt? and the next steps? Looks like on your sig the D3 blood work is all normal?! I guess that's great but like you said ... unexplained infertility. No one wants a diagnosis that contains unexplained...
Your chart looks great, but I think this process has taught me the only thing you can count on in the LP is knowing you have good P rise post-O and reasonable duration...
Thinking of you!

Hey MrsKp- haha- thanks for stalking! Yea, day 3 labs came back "normal". Just waiting to hear the results of the prog. test I had on Thurs. I'm thinking my #'s are going to be good given the temp rise and all. Honestly there are no next steps or next appt. Once I get the prog report back DH and I are going to have to discuss whether or not we want to go see the RE that the gyno recommended. She already told us that the labs and HSG are about where they end with looking into all of this and that next step would be to see the RE. Not sure if we are going to do it. If AF shows this Sunday I don't know what I'm going to do. Huge temp dip this morning. I'm secretly hoping it was implantation dip, but I'm also not sure if it was an accurate temp due to the temp in our room last night and all of the tossing and turning I did. I'm feeling absolutely nothing, so I don't think this cycle is going to end on a positive note either. I feel exactly the same as every other cycle. I'll take vitex next cycle and maybe make an appt with the RE this week. ughh- who knows- I hate all of this at this point. I can't even be hopeful anymore. And more and more people around me are getting pregnant. I'm ready to give up and fly the white flag in defeat.

Just a quick update- Have an appt with an RE this Thursday- yes, it has come to this I guess. :( Hopefully he can help us make a baby!!!! I feel exactly the same as I do every cycle so I'm almost 100% sure that it did not work this cycle as well. Just waiting on AF to show this Sunday on time as usual. Blehhh

Staying - I'm keeping my fx for you! What's with the dip in your temp on CD 9? The FF app doesn't really confirm much on implantation dips... but ... !
Guess the RE will do a PG tomorrow, likely, right?
You're lucky you got in so quick! Please let us know how it goes!
