I liked the 10:40 better but take what you can get lol. Have you told dh yet? Please go get more tests :) For me :) Im glad the spotting has lessened. You could double up on your progesterone you already have and have the doc give you a script for the vaginal kind. Its suppose to work better. Make sure they check your progesterone too. Have you peed on anymore cheapies?

Well on a not so exciting news as yours but I got an almost so close positive opk this morning with smu. Im pretty sure I haven't od yet and my temps are messed up again due to the hot sweating thing going on. Ive had the exact same temp 3 days in a row and its been within a couple hours of each time I temp so they can't be right. Maybe my thermometer is about to bite the dust. I have to run to town later and may pick one up.

I think you can use the oral progesterone vaginally too. There is a girl on another thread that has to do that. Stick a pill up there is what she has to do. lol I know that sounds gross but its suppose to work better.

Thanks for all the prayers and support, ladies. I certainly need all of it!

I got back a little bit ago. So far, I still have no definitive answers. The doctor did take a look to see if we could see anything, after warning that we probably wouldn't. All we saw was a thick, cushy lining with no clots, which he said was good. He said that my temps were fine, and that he would consider them to easily still be part of the maintained thermal shift. They took blood for a HCG test and I should hear back tomorrow or Wednesday. He said not to worry about the spotting; that it's really not an indicator of anything (I've been googling it and it could be decidual bleeding). I'm to double my progesterone and rest. No heavy exercise, that sort of thing. He wouldn't do my second blood draw for at least a week, because he didn't want me to get caught up in the numbers. My next appointment is on Jan 3-- the day after I get back from my trip.

So, all in all, I guess I'm breathing a little easier. I told DH and he's experiencing the same emotions as me--really excited, but really scared, too. I forgot to buy more pee sticks on the way home, so I'll have to run out again. DH said that we definitely need to plump for the good ones now. :) I'm just praying that the blood test comes back positive. It sounds so weird, but I've had a feeling this whole cycle that I was going to need to wait all this out. Almost like God was telling me to be patient, that it was going to be a tough road, but that everything will be okay, things needed to happen this way for a reason.

Court- I'm glad you finally got a positive OPK! So you don't think you've missed O after all? I love that you went into mom/bestie mode this morning for me. It made me feel very loved!

Peaks- thanks for your prayers, too! I'm looking forward to hearing about your appointment tomorrow.

Well my positive faded just like the others so wasn't a real positive.

Well I'm so glad that your dr upped your progesterone and did your blood draw. I know we want to know like right now what your blood test says. Lol I've checked this thread like 400 times waiting to see what you found out. I'm glad your lining looked good. I can't wait to see more pee sticks! No drinking and take another with a good hold it 3 or 4!! Def praying for you and haven't stopped. I want this for you so badly. I know we don't really "know" each other face to face but through here I feel like I def know you!! Can't wait to see some pics:)

Thanks, sweetie! I feel like I know you, too!

I'm sorry about the frustrating OPKs. They pissed me off, too, a while ago, which is why I stopped using them. Maybe you can convince Luke to just BD every second or third day? That way you should be covered for whenever you do O, since the OPKs are so frustrating. I really want to see you pregnant with number 5, too!

Not yet--I'm kind of scared to, to be honest. I'm working on a good, long hold though.

Unfortunately, there is nothing to see on the tests. I tried a Walmart cheapie before bed and then a new FRER and an IC this morning and couldn't really see a line on any of them. Possibly on the FRER, but if it's there, it's lighter than yesterday. Temp is still up though. The spotting was heavier yesterday, but lighter so far today. I guess that I just need to wait for the beta results at this point. I'm trying to stay positive and relaxed, I really am, but I'm wondering if I need to prepare for the worst.

Becky I'm really sorry your line wasn't darker today. You know I'm praying for you and thinking of you all day long. I know it's hard to stay positive and I'm glad you are doing your best to relax and try. I have another friend who did the exact same clomid dosage first round 15 dpo yesterday and she got a very light bfp yesterday confirmed with blood work but she woke up this morning spotting. She has been trying for 3 years and this is the first time she's ever been pregnant. I hate that this has to be so difficult and such an emotional roller coaster. Did the dr think your tests would be back today? Did they check your progesterone too? We are here for you no matter what and you can be sure we want the best for you. If this time around doesn't stick then eventually one will, I know it. Hugs sweetie!

Janeite, I've been constantly refreshing the page for your news, and I'm glad that you're keeping your calm during this wait. You've been through all sorts of difficult cycles and have consistently managed with grace. You have my admiration! So rooting for you!

Momma: Sorry that this cycle has been so frustrating for you. I understand how disheartening it is to not know what the body is up to. Wishing you courage!

Our appointment today went well, and I'm breathing a big (well, decent-sized) sigh of relief. Baby measured where he/she should for 8 weeks 4 days, and heartbeat was good. I think I was surprised, and too stunned to really react. Will keep a bit of caution until after next month's appointment (just after 12 weeks). That's it for the moment... Heading to a movie about the Beatles with DH, a colleague and his wife. Thinking of you all!

Peaks that is great news!! Im so glad your little one is doing well and looks great and is measuring as it should!! So is this the furthest you have been pregnancy wise? I bet you are sighing a bit of relief. Im sure you still feel cautious as anyone would after several losses. Praying things continue to go well!! Have fun at your movie!!
