Lol why would the moderators kick us off?

Hi Becky! I'm getting a first hand idea on how pregnancy and heat don't really go together. Normally I don't turn the air on until mid June but here we are May 25th and its on! Lol I'm so screwed when July and August come around.

I've got a slight rash on the top of my left foot. I called my OB and he doesn't seem to be too concerned. I can use bendaryl cream so I'm going to try that for the next couple days and see if it goes away. If not he suggested going to my regular doctor. Hoping I don't have to do that.

Hope you're doing well ladies!!

Holls- I was really only joking, since they say to restart buddy groups at 30 pages and we were over 70! Don't feel bad about running your air-you deserve to be comfortable this summer!

So I'm in need of some opinions from you ladies. My cycle has been really strange again this go around. Normally, AF shows the day my temp drops below the cover line. This last time, it wasn't until the third day of low temps that AF showed, and the it was super light, dark colored and had lots of clots. The day AF showed, my temp jumped up to above the cover letter be of the previous cycle and has stayed high since. I got another spike in temp on Monday. If I put into FF that I started AF on the first day of my temp drop (like I normally would), FF gives me dotted crosshairs for O on Monday. If I leave AF where it actually started, I get no crosshairs whatsoever. The other strange thing have been my temps: normally they hang out in the 97-97.4 range before O, jump to around 97.6 or 97.7 after O, and then peak for a day or two at 98 during my LP. This cycle they've been in the 97.6 range since AF and have been closer or over 98 since Monday. Have any of you had that drastic of a change from cycle to cycle? I'm really not sure what to make of it.

Becky you got me stumped as well. I don't know what to think. Did you ever go back to accupuncturist or make appt with ob?

So I had appt win new dr yesterday. My surgery is mid July. I guess you could say I liked the dr but it was first time meeting. She was very thorough. She's prob late thirties early forties. She talked like having this done wouldn't increase my chances for pregnancy. She talked like I'd have one or two better periods and then be back to the same. Anyway I really think Luke has decided he is done. Of course he wouldn't force that on me if I really decided I wasn't and vice versa. I talked to my dr about how easily I got pg with my last 3 and now 9 months of nothing. She said it could be my age or the endo. She said some peoples fertility does decline that fast. I was like noooo that's not what I wanted to hear. Anyway she explained everything about the surgery and the risks and all. It's relatively simple and recovery is quick. She will check to see if my tubes are open as well. I asked about clomid afterward and she said in my case it wouldn't help. If endo is severe ivf would be the only way. We def aren't doing that!

How is everyone? I miss chatting with you all.

Hey girls,

Mind if I join? Really trying to find a buddy group. I'm on CD 11 now and been ttc (a little on and off) since Nov. 2014.

Janeite - I know your in the other board with me and we are close in cycles. That other board is moving so quickly though!

Momma - good luck with your surgery! Have you had surgery before for your endo? I ask because a few months ago a doc I saw suggested me having the lap. surgery to see if I have endo. She said that could be causing a hostile environment for the sperm and egg. But, I never ended up going through with it though... I'm too scared I'll do it and nothing will be there and I'll have had a surgery for nothing.

I'll join :D I went MIA for a bit there lol.

I'm on CD4 today, day 3 of my 4th round of Clomid. So far this round has been good! This is a provera period which I was expecting to be absolutely brutal but it hasn't been too bad. Manageable, which is more than I usually get with provera lol. Other than a ROTTEN mood on my first evening of clomid and hot flashes all yesterday and last night, the side effects haven't been too hard on me yet. I'm doing 100mg which was my worst dose for side effects last time so I was a bit scared lol.

I'm trying not to get too hopeful but I feel ok about this round. Even if I don't fall pregnant, if I just OVULATE at all I will be a very happy camper (didn't ovulate on any of my previous 3 rounds). I can do 1 or 2 more rounds after this and if still no ovulation I will be going to see a fertility specialist, but i'm hoping it doesn't come to that. Fingers crossed!

Provera is a synthetic form of progesterone, used to bring on a period :) I have PCOS and I don't get periods on my own, so I take a course of provera which causes a withdrawal bleed so I can start a new round of Clomid. It sucks and I hate it! Lol.

Hi ladies,

Welcome Andi and Shaebaby! I'm one of the few that is pregnant and I'm still kicking around for support for you wonderful ladies - glad I can add two more to my baby dust list. :) :)

Shae - goodness that doesn't sound like fun - I can only imagine how taking pills to make yourself have a period and then taking Clomid to get those eggs moving would make you feel.

Andi - FX that this is your month and you have a sticky bean this time.

Becky - Hun, your cycle is baffling me. That's quite the drop in temp - maybe you're getting ready to ovulate?? FX!!!

Courtney - I missed your post prior. I'm so sorry hun - that all sounds rough. I appreciate that she was honest but she could have handled it a little better. I mean sure, if you both are done having babies then ok but you're still in the maybe trying for one more phase. I really hope she's wrong and you'll get your last little one to complete your family. :) Fx that your endo isn't severe.

AFM - 25W3D and this boy is very active now. I can see more of his kicks and punches. Sometimes it's amusing and then he finds that one spot that makes me say, ok little one, time for a break there. And then after he feels my touch, he moves to a different spot. He's all over the place this morning! LOL (DH and I are off to see Carrie Underwood tonight and I'm so excited - little man will be kicking up a storm cause he LOVES music. He's like his momma for sure!) Tomorrow I"m back to my OB for another check up - my mom is coming this time to meet him so they are acquainted prior to delivery. She'll get to hear his heartbeat and I know that will have her excited!!

Thanks Holls!!

Priy- I'm sorry to hear that! This is definitely an emotional ride. Hang in there!!

As for me, I think I'm just about in the tww. Vitex has done wonders for my temps! They have been as steady as I've ever seen them. Had a dip and a positive OPK so I think I O'd today or about to.

Hey girls- I'm still here! We celebrated our anniversary the last weekend in May & then we're all FF of work last week. I decided to mostly go unplugged while we were off. It was a really nice break!

So how's everyone doing this week?

Priy- Welcome! Hang in there! TTC can be a frustrating ride for sure!

Andi- That other board does move soooo fast. It took me quite a bit of time just to catch up reading everyone's posts. Glad to see you over here. I think we're still close in cycles. How's your TWW going?

Shea- Good to see you back! Are you being monitored this clomid cycle? Hope that the side effects still aren't too bad for you!

Court- I'm kinda frustrated for you that the new doc was so bleak. Hopefully the surgery will do some good for you! You said it's actually scheduled for July, right?

Holls- Hope you're still enjoying your little man dancing up a storm! I often wonder what my future babies are gonna nag to do--there is so much music that happens in my house!

AFM- That last cycle ended up being a total bust. I'm not even sure what was going on there. At least it ended quickly! I'm now on CD 8 of a new cycle, but it seems like a may have O'd early again. We're going to keep BDing just in case. Right now, I'm feeling pretty calm about it. I'm really trying to let go and let God. We'll see how long it lasts! Have a great day, ladies!

Hey Janeite! Glad that cycle went quickly for you at least. It's great you're feeling calm! Keep it up. :)

I'm 4dpo. Trying to remain positive. I know everyone says bd-ing two days before ovulation is great, but I can't help but think having it right before or day of would have been better. Scares me that we missed a big window there. DH had to work long hours and was too tired when he got home late to BD. Hoping we're not out.

I love your Let go and let God saying. Going to tell myself that!

I think 2days prior to O is still considered good timing, so I wouldn't count yourself out just yet, Andi! Glad you like that saying! I'm trying to use the t faithfully, but I find myself wanting to be in control more like free than not, lol!
