Thanks Momma. My LP was 12 days, and I got spotting on day 12 both cycles.

Hmm what do you ladies think, should I wait to use the progesterone cream for a time when I'm not on clomid? Guess i have some reasearch to do.

Andi, I started my progesterone after confirming O by charting. The only difference is I was taking it in capsule form. Taking it after O ensures that if fertilization happened, you will have the thickness needed for implantation.

There's also a lot of great info here: http://natural-fertility-info.com/proge ... ent-page-1

Just dropping in to report... the embryologist called earlier today to let me know that they had nothing to biopsy today.... meaning that there were no bastocysts (day 5 embryos). He will check back tomorrow to see if I have a day 6 blast. From 26 eggs to 14 fertilized to 0 blasts on day 5... I'm having a bit of an existential experience and am trying to process. I have one spot of hope in that they are keeping them in the dish for another day to see if I get enough growth from one or more to hit the blastocyst stage. I will find out tomorrow.

Star, I am so sorry. Hope you get better news tomorrow. Fx for you!
Andi, my chart is pretty useless this month as I didn't start temping until after I would normally have o'd. I don't think I o'd that late and even if I did, our BD timing probably wouldn't have been close enough. Still getting BFN as well. Today my temp dropped again, so now it's just been all over the place, much like my anovulatory cycles used to be :(

Thank you ladies! I'm a little crushed, but am holding to optimism as hard as I can. We can always try again. There is a reason why IVF success rates are between 5-50%.

Hey ladies - quick update! The witch got me this afternoon. And DH is away during what would be our fertile window next cycle. So I'm out for a couple of months, pretty bummed. No idea what the spotting was all about.

Loz - sorry AF came. That really stinks that you guys will be missing next fertile window. The TTC journey is so annoying sometimes.
Courtney - I will get a call later today to tell me the status. Not sure what any of this means yet.

Danaa - how about "Ready for an October Surprise"? (sorry a little US election humor)

Hey Momma, AF starting means I o'd the day before I started temping. I just dropped some fake temps into my chat based on my LP so that FF would shift my o date because otherwise in a few months I'll forget haha. It means I o'd almost a week later than usual, while DH was away (which at least gives me the comfort that it's not like we timed BD perfectly and missed out anyway)
Star, Dana, thank you. Star, I am really crossing everything that this phone call brings you good news. Your attitude is always so positive and inspiring! Haha I like the October surprise!
Ladies, it's my birthday in a few weeks (29!) and I was really hoping for my BFP by now. My mum had me when she was 29 and I always wanted to be a bit younger when I had kids, that plus the AF hormones is making me a little crazy emotional atm. I know it's silly as it's still a year away, and I have never been one of those people who obsesses about the big '3-0' but I am having a minor panic attack at the idea that I might not have a baby, or even be pregnant, by then.

Loz when is your bday? Mine is Oct 4. It seems like after 30 years just go by so fast. Too fast!! Iĺl be 36. I started ttc when I was 34 almost 35 and I was also hoping to be prego by now too. I know with each passing year 35 and after fertility declines even more so Iḿ struggling trying to accept the fact that we may really be done. I really feel bad complaining bc I do have 4 and I know most of you all are struggling to get atleast 1. It took us 4 years to get the 1st one though so I have been where most of you are. Just dont give up and lose hope. My dh and I thought we would never ever have kids. Im hoping and praying that each of you have babies. I really appreciate all the support here from each of you and I hope I dont ever offend anyone bc Iḿ ttc #5. I just want you guys to know that even after our struggles we kept trying and it did work out.
