Congrats waitin!!

Andi I'll definitely be your buddy this month! I just downloaded the ovia app. Going to give it a try and see. I saw a post on Facebook about it and people had good things to say.

Rachel - What is Ovia? Is it any different than Fertility friend?

Ovia is similar to fertility friend but collects way more data. It's free and people who posted said it was more accurate for them. I just started using it so I don't know a ton about what it does or how it uses all of your data but I like all of the info it collects.

Hey rachel! Thanks for asking. In short, the RE thinks my egg quality is poor and that's why I've had reoccurring miscarriages. *sigh* so next steps is to get an HSG test done to look at my uterus and tubes and an APLS panel done which tests for anti-bodies - another possible reason for the miscarriages. If everything comes back fine on both those tests she wants to move forward with and ovulation induction and IUI. She said she'll put me on two fertility meds one orally and injectables. Then monitor me on them until a quality egg is released and then I would do the IUI.

I guess it's just kind of shock right now. We both expected to conceive naturally. It's just all so upsetting. IUI isn't cheap either.

She also suggested I go on Coenzyme 10 to help with the quality of my eggs. She said there's not much meds out there that can help but it's worth a try. So for now I'm doing that and just waiting for the hsg test and apls to come back.

Hey Andi-

Glad you got some answers from your RE, but sorry to hear it wasn't what you were hoping for. What about your history made her think your egg quality is poor? Just the past miscarriages? Has your DH had any testing done? When is your HSG scheduled? Sounds like there's a good plan in place but I'm sure not what you'd planned when you thought about becoming pregnant. :-(

As for me, I opened up my opks to use the 1st one today and they don't work. I got the clearblue easy digital kind and my holder already says I can't use it. Returning them to Amazon but looks like I'll be flying blind this cycle. I like this kind because it's so easy to use, but I may order some wondfos next month because at least those won't give me an error symbol.

Hey Rachel, Yeah, my past miscarriages makes her think that. And I'm suppose to call in to schedule the HSG on day 1 of my period and it will be schedule around day 8-11 or my cycle.

That sucks about your opks! I got a different brand other than wondfo, clinical blue I think is what they're called. It's freaking me out because barely a second line at all is showing up? Even on my wondfos I could always see a second line before I got a positive. I guess they are just not as sensitive.

Hey Andi--

How're the opks working out? Any sign of O? I think I'll O soon if I haven't already. Been feeling a little crampy but otherwise nothing too exciting happening.

Yes! They finally started to get darker. The control line is not as dark as I'm used to. Luckily I had a few other OPKs that I like. I won't buy the clinical guard again. I def. prefer wondfos.

Anyways got a positive today! Waiting for dh to get home from work so we can dtd.

How's it going for you? Any positives?

No pos opks because I didn't buy any more after I returned the bad batch, but I'm pretty sure I o'd yesterday or Wednesday so now the wait begins!
