Yes! Sassa, I like your thinking :)

How is everyone doing?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

My blood test is coming up & I just almost don't want to do it. One thing is for sure, there is no spotting this month so far so the Progesterone is doing its job in supporting my lining. BUT I am majorly symptom spotting. The past two days my bbs were large & heavy feeling, and I had some weird shooting pain sensations in them. I was EXHAUSTED yesterday, wanted to go to bed at 7pm. This morning, nothing, not tender at all. My bbs deflating is usually a sign that AF is coming. I also just feel as though I already have my period except I am not bleeding, my lower back hurts, I feel really sensitive and emotional.

I get so hopeful sometimes and then I start to think "What it the likelihood that magically this will suddenly work?". We'll know what's happening soon enough. I'll try to stay positive

Hey ladies!!! I'm here....I needed to take a bit of a break from the boards and anything ttc related. I missed you all though!!!

Beth I'm soooooo stalking for an update in the a.m. I saw those lines and I'm very hopeful for you! I know how scary it is to get shadow lines and to have to test again! Fingers crossed that this is it for you!!

Sas any update?? I missed you girl!!!

Mom how are you and how is your mom? Hope all is well love!

Sunshine and Nicky how's everything??

Afm: not much going on on my end...I suspect I'm around 1dpo. I haven't temped or charted but I did use an opk a couple of days ago for the first time this cycle and it was positive....we didn't BD much though (only one day before and o day) so I'm not expecting much. I'm happy that we have a plan in place though. If no positive this cycle, we're moving to Femara this month and then Femara and iui in June!!! Still gonna be hopeful for this month though even with the lack of BD. It was my last round but highest dose of Clomid so we'll see.

Nikki, I totally get taking a break from ttc/boards - it can be too much at times. I am so happy to hear that you and DF have a plan for the next few c ycles although I have my fingers crossed that you will get your BFP this month.

The blood test is coming up soon. I almost bought another pregnancy test on the way home yesterday and thought, well, I might as well wait for the most definitive test.

I'll be sure to update you ladies when I find out either way...

**edit: oh goodness ladies, I went and lunch and had blood work drawn & grabbed a FRER on the way home, BFN of course! I assume my results won't be posted until tonight... I really don't want the hear the news from the clinic either way.

Hello ladies... Thanks for the new page Beth.

Beth, Sassa, Nikki, Sunshine: Hopefully this thread is planning to show some super juicy BFPs soon..

Mom: I am sorry about your mother. I hope you are doing great.

Beth: Fxed for you hun for this month. Progesterone is evil. And i have had serious symptom spotting cycles, while on the supplements. Glad its helping your lining for support though and you are not spotting. That's a good sign.

Nikki: Sometimes its good to take a little break. Happy about your plan. Fxed for a quick BFP.

Sassa: Good luck hun. Sorry to hear about your spotting issues. I had a pretty light period myself this time. And they have generally been lighter than before for last 2 years.

Sunshine: How are u doing??

AFM, we are planning to move to IVF in next cycle. No more tests for now. Doc asked me to report on 1st day of next cycle, which i am expecting to be 22-23rd May.

Hey all!

Nothing new to report for me. I'm 9dpo today. Sore boobs, some cramping (maybe it's phantom.) Don't feel any different than I did other cycles at 9dpo. My temp dipped to about the coverline today, but has mostly been above it.

Nicksy, so nice to hear from you! You're right, it's good to know that the supplements are keeping me from spotting, which sort of supports the idea that my corpus luteum stops producing progesterone sooner than it should, so no matter the outcome of this cycle it's nice to know that there is treatment to help with that.

Sassa, thanks :) I love your enthusiasm. I keep checking for my lab results every 30 minutes haha, I bet they'll be posted around midnight. I am trying to be so positive but I FEEL like I have my period, even though I am not bleeding.

Of course I logged onto Facebook and yet another pregnancy announcement, I bet some of these women have no idea how lucky they are, and you know, they shouldn't necessarily... based on the stats 1/6 couples have trouble with ttc. That means the overwhelming majority have no issues...

Negative blood test ladies, seems I will be getting AF for my birthday :(
*sigh* I just don't know what to feel now
This month will be a wash as both DH and I have to travel
I may become a lurker for a bit but I hope to see some BFPs soon
Thanks for all your support my friends

Beth - I'm out this month too. One more cycle of Clomid and then a break for a bit since our appointment with the fertility specialist isn't until August.

I'm devastated. Also, just figured that a little one won't arrive for me until I'm 34.

Beth: Sorry about the negative tests. Hugs.. Has your doctor decided any plan for you in next cycle?

Sunshine: Sorry about what you are going through. I am 33+ myself, and ofcourse, won't have a baby till I have crossed 34. Hugs! I sincerely hope you won't need the fertility specialist.

Sassa: What part of cycle are u at?

Nikki, Mom: Hello..

Sunshine - I am sorry :( *hugs* , this process is so hard sometimes....

Nicksy - thanks my friend :) We will do a phone consultation with our doctor next week, we're actually getting ready to move from Ontario to British Columbia and will need a new referral... unfortunately we are leaving one of the few Provinces that funds IVF... I'm going to see if he would be willing to prescribe us Femara with progesterone supplements while we wait for our new referral, we would do this unmonitored though...

Hey ladies, sorry I'm quiet this week, I have been traveling almost daily for work. Just a little sleepy and busy plus hubby needed taco tarts for Vinci de mayo party at work tomorrow and I made flan for my work. Cooked for 3 hours straight! So sleepy now. Thanks for asking everyone, my mom seems to be in good spirits about the job search. Timing is actually sort of opertune for sad reasons as a cousins husband was just diagnosed with inoperable cancer and they need help getting he and his wife to the good hospital. They're 3 hours from us and 3 hours from the hospital as well...the wife doesn't do long distance drives so they need chauffeurs. Hopefully he'll get a decent amount of time feeling okay, I don't believe his cancer is one that has any chance of "cure" but perhaps the treatment can give him some quality of life. Cancer sucks.

Sorry to hear about your result Beth, I really thought I saw something so I'm a little surprised. Fingers crossed you'll get some meds and a quick referral when you move.

Today we learned just how shitty Donald trumps new healthcare plan is--he's considering RAPE,DOMESTIC ABUSE, cerssarian sections, post parting depression, literally all things to do with vaginas or uteruses preexisting conditions. It's disgusting. Also so many poor people will lose their coverage. I'm a bit on the fence when it comes to poor/low income people, on one hand I tend to think you have to work hard and educate yourself to get ahead and on the other hand I know that some people are born into poverty and that's tough to overcome. I for sure don't think poor people should just be totally screwed when it comes to receiving healthcare. Ugh, the state of America is just sad right now. I feel for my DD to grow up in this and am very happy to be having a DS who will automatically have more rights because he has a penis. Bleh!

Beth: You are always welcomed! Good luck with the movement. I hope you get a quick referral. Try femara. But even if you can't have your cycle monitored, i hope you are planning to use opks or bbt to confirm O. Praying that new home will bring you all the good luck.

Mom: Glad that your Mom is feeling better about her job situation. Cancer really does suck. I lost my grandfather to it. I didn't even know about this new healthcare plan by Trump. I surely hope he can make amendments. This really seems shitty.
