Hey Ladies! It's nice to see the thread pick up again, haha.

I'm on CD 4 so I still have some time, but started the Letrozole, so we'll see what happens this cycle and hopefully I get a sticky bean! I'll start temping in a few days and I decided I would go back to OPKs just in case the timing changed. So fingers crossed!

Keep: Love seeing your bump pic, it's so exciting that it's finally happening and I loved that you announced on FB :)

Lindsey, any more tests?

Katy, I hope either AF comes or you get a surprise positive. Keep us posted!

Star, good luck when do you plan on testing again?

Katy... uh I hope AF comes for u sooon. Not knowing where u are in ur cycle is stressful. And yes we were NTNP but it’s turned into full blown trying with anxiety lol. You know how that works.

keep.. congrats. Team blue rocks. Do u have a picture?

Uh, I’ve taken about hmmmm 20 tests already. 6 frer. No second line. I’m literally a basket case. TTC OCD should be a real illness and I have it. I’m not charting but need to because I have a whole week where I “could” have ovulated. So it makes testing easy and lets face it I’m a full blown crazy right now. :rofl: :omg: :omg: :doh:

SMS-- good luck with the new meds. Crossing my fingers for you

Shannon -- I feel you, we are NTNP but even though I wasn't going to officially try till period comes back, the lack of period has been so stressful that I am peeing on ovulation tests all the dang time. I keep getting almost positives

Keep--- OMG the cutest tiniest bump!! I am envious, I NEVER looked that adorable pregnant!!!! Your story makes me nervous-- I hope mine returns soon. I did not have full-blown periods on Mirena -- BUT I did ovulate, because I tracked and used tests a couple months to confirm. AND the last few months of Mirena, I would have one day of very light off and on spotting which signaled a "period" and 2-3 weeks later I would have ovulation pain and so on. So I was shocked it didn't come back. If it is not back by beginning of December then I will call and make an appointment with doctor. Until then, NTNP. OH-- and do you have a baby name yet?? excited for you mama!


EOE-- hey ladies, hope you are well and enjoying a week of thankfulness!

AFM-- AD cut her head open at school yesterday and has her first 4 stitches eek. She handled it like a champ- and hopefully it heals quickly and doesn't leave much of a scar. I am hosting Thanksgiving for my Brother (in town), one of my sisters and her boyfriend and my parents-- as well as AD's daycare teacher (new in town, no where to go). Thankfully my sister's BF is cooking the turkey. He wants to fry it and I was like, have at it!

Thankful for you all-- I know I have been less active but when I lost my first baby a few years ago, this group pulled me through-- praying you all have tons to be thankful for this year!!

Keep you are soooooo tiny!! ADORABLE!

Stardancer - I didn't know you just had a CP! HUGS. Yeah NTNP can turn into full blown trying FAST.

Katy - Sounds like lovely plans! Poor AD - 4 stitches! It's rare for kids her age to have lasting scars, no worries. ;)

SMS - FX this cycle! Keep those tests going! :)

Mel - hope you are well if you are still reading!

All good here - exhausted! Semester ends in 2.5 weeks. UGH. Then - ONE MORE to go! Then I have to decide if I want to torture myself for 2 more years for a bachelor's. :lol:
Kiddos are fantastic - I love watching them play together!!

Highland, yes...uh. It started out as a faint line, got darker over a week and then faded to nothing. Worst was I found out in my wedding anniversary and it happened on the first night in our new house. Womp. But this happens. It sort of brought up a lot of unresolved grief from the first lost. I was and am a basket case.

I’ve taken ohhhhh about 45 tests in the last two weeks, I think I’m brave enough to post this pic. I feel like I’m jinxing it by posting here for some reason although I posted it in our fb group. Also feel a bit humble and lucky because that’s two bfp back to back. And this one I got on the anniversary of my bfp with my son who is a rainbow. So, that makes the day sort of extra special bc it’s a double rainbow day. Ahhhh. And it says baby five bc I believe every conception is a baby in my heart. This is he fifth child that has graced my womb. Not all are here. But I have hope to meet them one day.

I haven’t had any time to catch up and post bc of the holiday. I plan to catch up and write appropriate responses too. I am thankful for all of you ladies. To think we’ve been friends now for what a few years is impressive and very humbling. Hugs.

First Happy Thanksgiving ladies, hopefully you all had a lovely holiday.

I'm on CD 12 and finally got a flashing smile on my OPK so we're starting to get some where. I'm having a terrible time waiting this month and I'm not even in the tww. My temps have been all over too, lol. We'll just keep bding and I hope I'll get my 2nd rainbow.

Star, fingers crossed everything goes as planned. I know it's super stressful.

Katy, looks like O finally happened. Hopefully it's true this time and you either have a BFP or AF comes, lol

How's everyone else?

Hi ladies, hope you are well- and to my American TTC buddies, hope your holiday was wonderful!

Steph -- looks like you are O-ing-- catch that egg!! Good luck, I hope the meds help!

Lindsey -- how is the semester wrapping up? Hope AF has made her exit and you can get busy BD-ing!!!

Keept - hey little mama, how are you feeling?

Shannon-- yes, NTNP can turn into TRYING with ALL the anxiety really quickly. Hope you are feeling well!

Mel- hope Disney is treating you well!

EOE-- hey ladies!!


AFM: As some of you noticed, I finally O'd - or at least I *think* I did. So I ovulated BEFORE my IUD came out (so no chance of pregnancy there). I basically was just waiting for my period the first few weeks-- I would take my temp just to get in the habit-- THEN I started charting when we BD-ed and taking an OPK every few days, just in case I ovulated again - since no period or new cycle and shown up. Eventually, I figured that I should take that pre IUD removal positive OPK off my chart since I might ovulate again (I hear things reset after IUD is out) or at the very least, I was tired of seeing a 30-40 day luteal phase haha :rofl:

SO-- I deleted that positive OPK then got what I *believe* to be a positive OPK a week ago. It was practically as dark as control line -- but to be fair, since I am not full on trying - just trying to figure out what my body is doing, I didn't pee multiple times that day like I normally would - so I feel like I probably missed the positive. When my temp rose, I decided to count it as my "surge" and see what happens. Temp has stayed up (with a small dip) and OPKs are stark white now so I believe I FINALLY ovulated. Also I did BD the day of positive test so I might be in a small TWW. Since I had no idea where I was in my cycle, I didn't get a TON of BDs in the week before O, but still had a couple sessions....so you know, anything is possible! Funny, when I got IUD out, I was waiting for AF (since I had already ovulated). Now I am waiting for AF or positive test. Although a pregnancy would be a GREAT surprise, I will also just be glad to finally have AF!! Hoping to have news one way or the other in the next week!!

On a non-pregnancy related note, I have started taking ZUMBA classes at the gym. I am AWFUL but I enjoy it. Hoping when I am pregnant I can keep it up (I am starting this pregnancy out larger than last so would like to stay active). I wish you could all see me---- SO BAD! But it feels like I am doing something for me, which is rare, so I love it!!

Katy, I hope either way something happens :)

Yup, I'm confident I've O'd so now just keeping track of my temps and seeing what happens. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and trying not to get my hopes up early.

Keep, how are you feeling?

Linds, how's it going? BD away :)

Shannon, have you gotten some blood work done, how are you feeling?

Sm- ahhh. So exciting. Do u have any symptoms yet? How many dpo are you now? Waiting is the worst.

Katy- fx! I saw your chart shomewhere and I thought it looked a lot more promising than your last crosshairs. Fx but even if no bfp at least getting af will help u know where ur cycle is and would help you time next month!

I had my beta done yesterday and I have a script for an ultrasound. Hubs is going to Puerto Rico for work for 30 days. He leaves Friday and he will be gone over the holiday. Bummer. So when I went to the OB she said Zika is a serious concern and no sex without protection for the rest of the pregnancy. Even worse if I miscarry we can’t ttc for six months after his return. Okay so why so negative, I just can’t shake the feeling that I’m not coming home with this baby. I knew the previous two times and I just have this awful feeling of dread that I didn’t have with my two that resulted in children. Uh sucks. I’m just waiting for the shoe to drop.

Yes and no for symptoms. I've had some twinges on both sides, but nothing that just says bam I feel like I'm pregnant. I'm thinking I'll test Friday, which sometimes feels like forever away, but I know will be here in a blink.

I know what you mean about wait for the shoe to drop, when you've had loss it's hard not to think about it happening again and again. Hopefully everything turns out perfect. Try not to worry (awful advice I know). Keep us posted on the US and how everything is going and what your beta turns out to be. If I do get a positive I need to call the RE and have blood work done right away, so fingers crossed.

Steph-- chart looks amazing. Hope to see a BFP soon!

EOE--- hey ladies, happy Monday!

AFM: brief update: period arrived this morning. First period in 2.5 years so hopefully its not too brutal. That's after my 65 day cycle haha After my surprise second ovulation, I was a tad hopeful for a BFP- but realistic that it would not likely occur as I barely got in a BD after surprisingly seeing a positive ovulation test. Hopefully this next cycle will be a lot closer to normal, started EPO, Vitex, RRL, etc to try and regulate hormonally! Ready to TTC officially now! I am particularly hopeful that I ovulate at a normal time now that IUD has been out over a month....because over the holidays, my husband will celebrate Christmas then go to the deer camp to hunt for a few days. I could always call him home to BD, but I mean, if he comes home for the evening, I think it would be very obvious why.....hahaha. FX for an early O!!!

Also, give me all your TTC tips. It's been awhile. I have OPKs and a few supplements-- should I use soft cups, how many times should I BD?
