Hi Ladies

Just a quick update from me!

I got my CD21 (well in my case CD20) blood test results and it came back in the normal range. I asked the receptionist for confirmation what that meant and she said she would get a Dr to call me back which they did do.

She said they like to see a level of 40+ to confirm Ovulation and mine was 28.7, I did say that I thought I might have gone slighty early and could only have been about 5DPO on that day. I couldn't get in to have the test on 6/7DPO but she said given the level it was obviously rising and had I gone in a couple of days later it would probably have been 40+ so she was confident I did ovulate.

That was the positive news, I asked now that all testing was done what happens next and she said guidelines have recently changed and that as all tests results were normal they couldn't refer us until we had been trying for 2 years.

Obviously I was very disappointed and upset, especially considering my scan did show cysts which must mean we are going to need help to conceive? Waiting another 11 months won't change that if there's a real issue such as PCOS or a blocked tube/s which I've not been tested for.

She said given I had lost so much weight recently it was likely I would conceive naturally in the next few months anyway.

The Dr I spoke too wasn't the one we'd been seeing, ours is much more sympathetic so I'm hoping the appointment we have with her in two weeks time yields some better news!

So not the best news from me, I guess it's just a matter of staying strong and to just keep trying?

I think I'm 8DPO today and I reckon AF is due Tue/Wed next week so I shall keep an eye out for her arrival.
I'm not feeling anything out of the ordinary, I've hardly had any lotiony cm like I normally do so that's slightly different? I've had a few cramps the last day or so and my boobs are still sore/tender to touch but I've had those things happen on previous months and nothing came of it!

So that's it from me!

Feefee i think u and i are in the same cycle. I also did my progesterone test yesterday and the lab called me this afternoon that the result was ready to pick up. It was to late to get them so i ask what was my number and she said 4.11 ok so now im puzzel. Ultrasound show a deformed folicle which me i ovulated. So what 4 means? Help ladies, quality of my egg. :(
Fee why u need a referal to se RE specialist? Does your insurance cover? Since insurance does not cover for me i when directly with them. Just called them and set an appointment.
Any info on progesterone level ladies will be helpful

Hi ladies

Real quick one from me as I'm at work

Mglupe your best bet is to contact your Dr and ask what the 4 means... Unfortunately I'm not sulphate tests you have done so I can't help you out with the results :( keeping my fingers crossed for you anywhere xoxox sending :babydustb:

Fee fee I'm sorry they can't help you until your at 11 months... Have they given you anything to deal with the PCOS... I hope you get better news off your regular Dr and she is able to help :) hopefully your weight loss and confirmed O is the beginning of great things :)

feefee that is super frustrating, and also doesn't make sense... I guess we are at the will of the publicly funded system...

Shia hope you and the wee one are feeling lovely this weekend :)

AFM quick update, this was a very messed up cycle for me. Only 21 days long. I've never had that before. I thought I had a vvf bfp this week but I think it may have been faulty tests. I am wondering if I ovulated even earlier than CD11 because that would make the most sense with what ended up happening. We moved up our appointment with our specialist to this Monday so we will get some more info.
I've got a lot coming up in the next 2 months (we're moving to a different province), so it may not be the best time to be trying treatments. We'll see.

Hi Ladies

I hope your all well?

Mglupe - sorry I don't know much about progesterone numbers, I know the measurements are different in different countries, I would suggest calling them back to get clarification.
I live in the UK so we don't have insurance here it's all done on the National Health Service (NHS) so it's all done free of charge.

Shia - were in our 12th month of trying, well soon to be 13th when AF arrives soon so it's another 11 months before they'll help apparently!
Well it's strange because the blood work doesn't seem to suggest PCOS but I did have cysts on my ovaries when I had the internal ultrasound so not sure what's going on?

Beth - yeah it's very frustrating, I'm just hoping we have a miracle in the next few months or that our normal Dr is willing to put us forward for help given possible PCOS?

I'm sorry that you've had such a short strange cycle especially since this was the month you were been monitored, that's just typical!
I'm glad you've managed to re-arrange your appointment for tomorrow, please do update us after you've met with them!

Everyone else - I hope your all doing well? Please do drop in to update even if you haven't got much to update its just nice to hear from you!

AFM - I'm on CD26 today and I'm either 10/11DPO, my LP is usually 12/13 days so I'm expecting AF Tue/Wed if I calculated correctly. Even if she does show it means I'll have had another 28/29 day cycle which is great as it shows I'm getting back into a routine again rather than having long annoying cycles!

I never have any PMS symptoms so can never tell when AF is coming apart from about an hour beforehand when I get those awful period cramps and tummy pains!

There are a couple of things that are different this month symptom wise, normally I get about 4 days of white lotiony cm mid way through the LP but this time I've been very dry.

On 7-9DPO I remember having strange cramps that I've never felt before, at first they were on the left which is where I think I ovulated from and then by 9 DPO it seemed to be across the whole of my uterus?

My boobs have been tender but they normally are after ovulation, they still are slightly now which is different as in the days before AF I don't normally feel anything with them?

Otherwise I feel absolutely normal like every other month, I'm just waiting for AF to arrive so I can move on to the next cycle. I won't be testing unless she's not shown by Thursday, which would be great if I did get a BFP as its our first wedding anniversary on Friday!

I'm still going with my weight loss and have lost 27lbs so far in 10 weeks! I'd like to lose another 5lbs by the time we go on holiday which is 4 weeks today!!!

Love and best wishes to all!

Feefee, those sound like some interesting symptoms?! Will you test soon??? Great job with the weight loss!!
I have been thinking that maybe stress had something to do with this cycle being off.

Hi Beth

It's only the weird cramps that's I've never felt before that make me think could this be it but I'm not getting my hopes up!

I'm not gonna test before AF is due as I'm sick of seeing negatives so I'll wait til she's late which would be Thursday at the earliest!

Yeah stress does crazy things to our bodies, you will have been stressing more because you knew you were been monitored and wanted everything to be ok.

Although saying that on the months I was stressed it made my cycles really long but that's probably because I was stressed when I was due to ovulate and my body tried several times!

At least tomorrow you can ask about all the things you want too and hopefully make a start on getting some help so you can get your BFP soon!

Hey Ladies

Nothing much to report from me I'm 11/12DPO today and just waiting for AF to arrive I'm guessing she'll be here tomorrow.

Anyway after two pregnancy announcements from school friends on facebook over the weekend I broke down crying to my DH as I couldn't take anyone else getting pregnant and not me anymore!

Really not in a good place right now and feel I need to take a step back from it all for a while!

Therefore providing I don't get some miracle this month that I can share with you I will be taking a step back from this site for a month or so.
I will probably check in to see how your all doing every couple of weeks but I'm switching off FF and Ovia from my phone as it's stressing me so much it's not healthy for me.

Your all amazing ladies and I hope you all get what you want soon as you all deserve it and I definitely want to see baby pictures when those little ones come along!

But for now I need some time with my DH to re evaluate things and hope in time we get our miracle.

Love to you all!

Fiona

We are all to quite once again. How is everyone. How are the big mamas doing. Wao time has gone so fast. In about 8 weeks we are going to start seeing babies. Yeah!!
Just wanted to do a quick update. Viste my specialist in PR and to my surprise cd26 i had not ovulated this cycle i had cyst about 7 so he said one eas measuring 55mm and other were smaller. The instructions i received was wait for my period which i thought was coming cd28 and start birthcontrol pills to help reduce them for 3 weeks and will see if they disappear and will put me on lepron for another week. Ok sound good. The next morning i thought rf had arrived and to my surprise i was surging ovulating this late i tested and it was positive. So im back again on the two weeks i dont think i will see rf any time soon. As of today im 2dpo.
Baby dust to all of us

Fiona, glad to hear that you are taking some time with DH to focus on yourselves. I think that is needed sometimes in this journey. I have my fingers crossed that you will conceive before needing any assistance.

mglupe, sorry things have been so confusing, hopefully this is the cycle!

quick update, I ended up going back for monitoring ultrasounds and blood work. I was told that I am likely ovulating today and that I have to come back tomorrow to check. They will give me progesterone suppositories because I always spot leading up to AF.
If this cycle doesn't work we'll be taking a break until July as we're moving to a different part of the country.

Hope you all are well!

Hi Guys,
just read all these and hoped this would help. im currently 19 weeks pg after 9 months of trying with PCOS and EXTREMELY thin lining (which baby asprin really helped with I believe anyway! ( I just took 1 low dose of asprin daily!) I think this helped baby attach to my non existent lining!
Also at 11dpo, I woke up very very wet sorry tmi) which was super unusual for me especially as I was approaching AF. (which I was totally expecting as I did every month) had enough of bfns!
I was off work with larengitis so was feeling rotten, but thought this is weird. so I had a spare test (as you do) and took it which was a frer, and it was positive within 15 seconds. I then took clear blue blue dye which was faint blue (not as sensitive and took it in the afternoon) then took a cb digital that evening and it was positive saying 1-2 weeks pregnant!! I was so thrilled especially after months of waiting! I am so blessed to have one little girl already but once you haver been bitten by the baby bug it consumes your every waking moment!
My cervix was low too, I checked it when I found out as heard it was supposed to be high and closed. but nope was the opposite and was until 11 weeks. so not all people are the same. a few days later around 15dpo, boobs were really sore and seemed to grow over night!
I wish you all the best of luck I hope you get your bfps and have wonderful healthy pregnancy. I just wanted to give you all abit of hope and lt you know that I symptom checked every month and it wasn't until the month I stopped looking that I found my sticky bean! lots of love and fairy dust! x

Congratulation Mrsmummy!!! Thank you for sharing your experience. I too sufer from thin linning. And in occasion taken baby aspirin but not daily being caution.
I now feel my problem is egg quality because not even once in almost two years with 8iui have i seen a bfp.
So i recently stated taken additional supplement of coq10 and DHEA to see if that will make a different on my next cycle when ever it diside to come.
My i ask you how thin was yours?
