Whoz def. go through this each month. Just last night the anxiety took me over and I shed a few tears. Brought myself back down though. It's hard to not fantasize. And you go girly!! That's a lot of bd-ing!! lol! To answer your question, it depends on our LP you'll see how long the LP is in your chart anything less than 10days is a defect. I forget, your first month temping right?? Since that temp dropped so low today I think maybe you haven't O'd yet. Just my opinion!!

Loz - that was me who said it and I'm so glad my words have given you comfort!! *hugs*

Totally with you there!! I don't know what made me start even thinking about that.

Dana - thinking of you today with your appointment!

Feeling a bit more emotional which is par for the clomid course. Nothing too crazy just notice I'm getting more agitated with friends, eek! And my anxiety is high, need to bring it back down with some yoga or a massage! lol

Well quick update. I'm home. Surgery went well they found just two small spots of endo. They cauterize do them. They found some old scar tissue that they said could be old endo. They said for the most part everything looks good. My tubes were open too. I didn't actually get to talk to the dr so he just talked to Luke. I have a post op appt on October 7. I don't feel too bad right now but still on meds so will see what later brings.

Courtney im so happy you are home and they didn't find anything to major.Get better soon.
Whoz I think you are O today,that is why I posted last night that you should wait for today's temperature to decide if you need more BD session,I would definitely get one last BD in.
Loz hugs is so hard,im sorry,really sorry,I don't know how can I help,I wish I could make you feel better.
But just know you are not alone.
My apoiment was to check my lining and get more meds,actually up my dosage.
Star ty for ur post and for making me feel better,believe me when I say I felt like crap for 3h bcs I thought I did something "bad" when I never tried to do that.
So my apoiment was quick and good,my lining is nice and trilaminar,the doc was very pleased,im taking 4estrogen pills starting tomorrow and on Monday I'm adding progesterone and onother scan and the transfer date is still October teh first.

Here's a pic of the small spots of endo. Gross I know. Lol
The other pic is the scar tissue from the old endo. It's the white looking stuff at top of pic

I'm feeling relatively well this afternoon. I came home and laid down for a little bit and have been up just moving around to try and get the gas out. This has been the easiest abdominal surgery I've had by far. Well I say that today. Lol hope I'm not over doing it.

I'll get on my laptop to do personals after while.

Oh my, you ladies have been busy! It will take me a while to catch up.

Courtney, I'm glad you are done with the surgery and everything looks good other than those two minor findings. I hope this means good things for the following month! XD

I have been quiet because I've been working non stop and am really just exhausted. Everything seems to be going well and I have an appointment on the 26th for a followup to my anatomy scan.

Hope everyone is well and I will drop in and catch up when I have more time!

Hello All,

I'm going to see see if my temperature rises again tomorrow because it could just have been a fallback rise that i read can happen on 2dpo (which is what I could be today).

I hope I'm not ovulating today because we are far too tired to DTD again tonight. I hope this doesn't mean we're out. :-(

Momma, so glad you are recovering well from surgery. what is the full recovery time for this sort of surgery? My sister (she is 22) just found out she has what's called a 'chocolate cyst' and may need surgery, I think it's a lap but she works in childcare, not sure how much time off she'd need.
Whoz, I wouldn't worry if you miss tonight, I think you have still got t covered! Fx for you.
Guys, I am still in limbo right now. I've got the craziest symptoms that I am obviously obsessing over (my boobs are ENORMOUS, even for me and I'm already - I think the US equivalent would be like a 36DD?). I've also had a headache and dizzy spells since Monday, I've even had a little bit of nausea but it's kinda throughout the whole day, maybe I just have a weird bug. I keep trying to convince myself that it's still possible I'll get a BFP, at least it's more fun obsessing about these symptoms than waiting for AF.

Whoz I think you have your bases covered regardless of whether you missed o day or not. Iḿ curious to see when you will get actual crosshairs. SMEP is def hard to manage thatś why we dont do it. I think if you miss a couple days in the beginning you might be able to get that extra bd in the end. My fingers are all crossed that you get that bfp this month. I may have asked already but Ive forgotten. How long have you been ttc? Also you have a son right and how old is he? How long did it take you to get pg with him? I may have this all wrong so forgive me if I do.

Loz Iḿ sorry for bfn and really not knowing whatś going on yet. How many cycles have you been on femara? Have you ever not od while taking it? I dont think you have a lp defect I think you just od later than you think which will increase your cycle length. At the time of your positive opk did you have other signs of o? Did you ever have anymore signs of o after that? Do you have pcos by chance? Oh I think the general recovery time is 7 days, but everyone is different. This is my 3rd abdominal surgery, gallbladder, weightloss surgery and this and this one has been the easiest of them all so far. A chocolate cyst is a symptom of endo so Id tell your sister to get the surgery asap so when she is ready to have kids it can improve her fertility. Is she on birth control? If she isnt ready for kids tell her to have the surgery then go on birth control to help keep the endo at bay until sheś ready to start having kids. It doesnt progress when on the pill.

Andi I hope you are feeling better and are getting back on the positive train. have you started opking yet? When do you expect to o? I hope you get a great egg this month and you get a bfp. Im looking forward to your tww this month :)

Danaa Iḿ glad your lining looked great. Your transfer is right around the corner and Iḿ so excited. Hope you get the cake the way you want it :) When is Dh bday?

Fly good to hear from you. Iḿ sorry youve been so busy and I hope you do get some rest. Looking forward to your next dr appt.

Phd how are you doing? Hoping you are feeling good. Do you have another scan scheduled?

Indie where are you girl? I know you are in the tww or atleast I think you still are. We want to see a bfp. When are you testing?

I woke up feeling pretty good today. I did take my meds throughout the night just so I didnt wake up feeling terrible. I had a very good nights sleep. Iḿ still taking it easy. I do have a cold which is starting to flare up and coughing is tough on my sore abdomen. My throat feels better from being vented today. My daughter Abby has a practice game this evening that I may go try and sit through. My belly butt is pretty sore. I guess thatś where they went in through. I feel incredibly bloated today. Iḿ also constipated from the meds so Ive been taking stool softener so Its not so hard to go to the bathroom. It hasnt worked yet.

hello ladies -
whoz - I think you got in enough BDing :) I tried SMEP a few times, but we could never get all the sessions in... to exhausting and DH was not having it.
Courtney - cool images. I'm glad surgery went well.
Danaa - yay to good looking lining! I can't wait!!!
Loz - FXing for you
Fly - nice to see things are going well.

EOE - Hi

Dana - I'm so glad your lining is good! I'll be away the weekend of oct 1 but will be excited to come back and hear how your transfer went!

Momma - glad the post surgery isn't too bad for you!! Thanks for the kind words! Picked me up. I am using OPKs started on CD 9 but nothing positive yet. I have a feeling I might get one soon with all this ewcm.

Whoz - I think you ovulated yesterday on the CD 19, and that would fit your +opk! You def got a lot of bd-ing in!!

Loz - your chart looks good!! Is there a specific reason why you think you're def. out?? To me I'd say you're very much still in the game!! You're only 9dpo so it could just be too soon to get your bfp. My first angel babe I didn't get a BFP until AF was almost 1.5 weeks late.

Star - Love hearing about your journey so excited for november to get here for you!

AFM - My anxiety is coming down. Having a noticeable increase in CM! That's exciting me because I think I told ya'll how I rarely see any. I also ordered some progesterone cream. Hoping I'm doing the right thing by ordering that. Just last cycle when my lp was only 10/11 days I got even more worried. The fact that my lp changes from 11-15 days, that means I have a defect right? I should really get a second OB opinion for progesterone. I get so nervous using anything without an "ok" from doc. even though you don't need a prescription for cream. I guess it can't hurt? Or can it?? anyone know?

Andia I don't think the cream can hurt as it isn't as high of a dose as prescription. Just don't start using it till you are like 3/4 days post o. Also with the clomid I think it can bump your progesterone up as well. When you took clomid before how was your Lp? Did you get the spotting at 10/11 dpo?

Star I can't wait to hear an update on your embryos :)
