Loz, I always felt like I was playing the lottery each month on clomid. I know you are having mixed emotions, but I'm very excited for you to test!

Is anyone around?!
Im kinda of freaking out,i started what it should be my period but so far is only spotting on the tp when I use the toilet,I have no cramps ,no symptoms nothing to let me know a full flow is starting or even that I'm having my period,is this normal?!I thought the first period should be heavy bcs of build up lining and stuff.
Should I be worried?!Is this normal?!
My worry is that im going to need a D&C to clean my uterus or a histeroscopy.....I really,really don't want anymore invasive procedures done.I took a baby aspirin I thought maybe that will help me bleed more but nothing yet.

Danaa I have no idea. I can't remember what my first flows were like after delivering but I'd say you bled awhile after delivery so your lining may not be as thick yet. I know it's so hard to know what's going to happen.

Just real quick I'm going home. I saw the specialist and I have to make it atleast 4 more weeks for my baby to have a chance. I'm not on complete bedrest but taking it very easy. Still possible my placenta could move. I'll update when I get home and catch up on personals. Love you all and thanks for your support and prayers

Courtney im sooo happy you are going home.Take it as easy as you can,just think about ur boy,believe me I know is not easy to stay in bed but sometimes you have to.
I pray your boy decides to come at full term!!
As for my period problem,the thing is I know I had a thick lining bcs the doctor saw it on the scan and he said it will shed at my first period,I don't know Im going to try and stop stressing so much and hopefully everything will be ok.
I just hate this whole thing....

Ok well I'm not sure where I left off and who I've responded to and who I haven't.

Whoz I saw your chart and noticed you tested today. I'm sorry it was bfn. It's still early though. I really hope you try the upped dosage of clomid and continue to try. I know the stress of it is hard but please don't give up yet. I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds here. I just believe it's going to happen for you. I almost gave up several times and I'm so glad I didn't. I know I'm going through a lot right now but I don't regreat at all trying and finally getting pregnant. I hope counseling helps you as well. You will get it all sorted out and I believe you will come to a decision that you feel good about whatever it may be. I know my desire for you to have another baby is "my desire" but ultimately it's yours and dh. lol I can put my two sense in though right?? :)

Loz I'm so glad you are doing good. I'm glad work is helping keep you busy and hopefully pass your time. I get the eating anything in sight and not being able to control it. It's ok really!! I had such a desire for fruit roll ups I couldn't make it in the store fast enough to get me some! They were divine!!

Danaa I know this is stressful to you and hope and pray all works out in your timing!! However we know with ttc things don't usually work in our timing but how ever it works it will work!! Love you girl and keep fighting the good fight!!

Nicky where are you with everything? I kinda got lost in the scheme of things. Are you starting ivf this cycle or so you have to get your TSH figured out first? Anyway hugs to you and I like your baby names!!

Fly thank you so much for updating everyone for me! Made me smile when I first saw that. I hope your move goes smoothly. I always loved moving. I love change! Remy is amazingly beautiful. Luke always comments how sweet she looks. He never comments on other babies pics on FB but yours!!

Andi I know you posted the other day but I totally forgot what you said. I'm sorry and I can't look back at the moment. I'm so thankful for how well everything is going for you! Praying it all continues.

Mk I'm glad we can hear from you more often. Fxd you catch that egg!

Faith have you gotten a temp rise yet! I have good feelings for you this month!! Stay healthy!! Oh and happy anniversary! Sounds like you have a great marriage!!

baby it's so good to hear from you! I'm glad you are doing well! I understand getting busy and not getting on as much. You just stay healthy and grow that baby!

I feel like I'm missing someone but for the life of me I can't remember who. I'm sorry if I left anyone out. My mind is well jumbled a the moment!

I am home and doing well physically and mentally at the moment. My bleeding has almost completely stopped. Everyone is gone tonight so I'm just taking it easy on the couch. I'm feeling hopeful that I'm going to "cook" this baby long enough. I will get steroid shots at 23.5 weeks to mature babies lungs incase of early delivery. They said my previa is marginal and not complete now. It was complete last Friday so it looks like it may have moved some already. I wish I could sleep the next 4 weeks just to get to the stage that my baby could have a chance if it were born. See always something to worry about pregnant or not! I got some amazing 4d pics from ultrasound of baby. It really made me feel more connected to him. I'll see if I can get a few to post. My kids were so happy to see me and are being super sweet. I do thank you all for your support and love! This is an amazing group of ladies and I so wish we could get together outside of the internet. You all have been such a part of my life's! I don't know what I'd do with you all!!

Whoz, sorry about the bfn, but I am hoping you just tested too early.

Dana, you bled a lot after delivery right? I bled for a couple weeks after and haven't since. Anything can be normal, just wait a bit and see if it picks up and if not maybe ring your doctor. I'm sure they'll want to do a checkup in a few weeks anyway.

Courtney, glad things are looking okay and I hope they continue to. And aww I am flattered that Luke thinks she is so cute. I know we did well!

Fly yes I did bled quite a lot and a bit of spotting after the endo scratch thingy,maybe I didn't had a lining that thick,who knows.
Im seeing the doctor after three periods,I saw him like 2-3w ago and he only said that I should shed the lining at my next period but so far I'm only seeing blood on the tp and nothing on the pad.
I think I will wait and see how my next period looks like before calling the doctor,maybe I will get a scan later this week to check on things.
Is frustrating but I do remember that before the Ivf my periods were quite light already.
Im just angry at my body for not working properly

Fly you did very well:)
Courtney im really happy that you are doing so well.
Just let everyone spoil you and enjoy it.
Im sooo happy that the placenta has moved up a bit,that is good news right?!
This group seriously rocks!!!I wish I could hug all of you in person one day.
This evening I went to my SIL for dinner and there we saw DH cousin who had her little boy with her.....I spent the time playing and hugging him,he made me realize how much I miss my boys and how much I'm losing....seeing that little boy next to me husband killed me a bit inside,I barely stopped myself from crying.
This is so not fair.
I hate myself and my broken body.

Dana, I can't speak to your specific situation but I do know that before I had the ivf when I was really stressed about that period showing up, it started for really spotty and kept starting and stopping, which had never happened to me before. So stress could definitely play a part in it and hopefully things even out for you soon. If you are still worried, maybe just ring your clinic and ask if it's anything you need to see the doctor for? Just for peace of mind.
Whoz, sorry about the BFN but as everyone said it's still early!
Courtney, I'm so glad you are doing better and that the placenta has moved a bit. Praying you get more than 4 weeks of baby boy growing nice and strong before you deliver.
Afm, I went back to see my usual GP and got my referral to the obgyn. She was so much nicer than the guy I saw last time, so I will definitely stick to seeing her from now on. I'll have to book in with my endo soon as well as I have to get my thyroid levels monitored and a glucose tolerance test. Soooo much money! Other than that we are just off to look at bricks for the house today. I do have one question actually. Does anyone know what is safe to take for a UTI while pregnant? I don't have one yet but am prone to them and can feel one coming on, I am trying to defuse it by drinking heaps of water for now. Do I have to stick to just cranberry juice or do you know if the urinary cleanse tablet/sachets are safe?

Awww Danaa I'm sorry. I really thought I was going to have to experience what you went through and I know it didn't happen but it was quite the scare and after seeing my baby on my anatomy scan and seeing his clear face and expressions and just could not imagine loosing him now. I felt so connected to him when I saw that and it just breaks my heart to think i wouldn't be able to carry him and have him in my life. I know it hasn't happened and if it did now I don't know how I'd come back from that. You are so strong and I probably get it more so now what you had to go through. Yesterday luke left to go get him food and that was the first time I had been alone since all of this happened and I had an emotional breakdown after my ultrasound thinking about seeing my baby like I got to and the fear of the possibility of losing him now. It just broke me in pieces. I'm so sorry that you actually had to experience that tragedy. I've been thanking god so much that we have gotten good news so far and telling him I'm really trying to trust him but please don't let me lose my little guy now! I know that sometimes the unexpected happens to good people and it's not god punishing us or anything. I know he has the ultimate plan and in the end his ways are perfect even if we can't see what they are st the moment. During all of the last few days people were telling me to trust god and his will whatever it may be and that was hard for me to hear bc I want my way. Haha I want my boy here with me and healthy! I still hurt for you Danaa but you will get through this even stronger. Your body might be different now but after a cycle or two you will find what normal is going to be. Hugs girl! You may not have a heavy period this time but it might even be shorter and your plans to ovulate might come even sooner. You never know!!

Loz I think you can take the cranberry tablets too. Azo is what they are called here but if you do get a uti make sure you get some abtiotics to clear it up bc they can cause problems. If you really think you have one go to the dr. There are safe meds to treat uti.

Danaa: HUGS..You don't have to be super woman mama. Cry. I would have just cried and hugged that baby to pieces. Junk hurts. If people get upset, screw them (sorry, I can say that because I've been in your shoes....) Your boys are watching over you and know the blessings that are coming your way. You deal and heal as you can and the people who truly love you will hold you up as you would them.
As for the period, I bleed heavily afterwards, then 4 weeks later a normal period with my daughter but with my premature birth I bleed even more and it too 2 months for it to get back to 'normal'. You can have a period with next to no bleeding. I did in high school but I had excruciating cramps just no blood. Love on your body right now with any lil bit you can muster. It will love you back. Thinking of you.

Momma: HUGS...you poor thing. Enough is enough already if I say so myself. Just keep rubbing your belly and talk/sing/....whatever it takes to keep lil Ben calm and happy as we all await his safe arrival. :hugs:

Whoz: I too hope you just tested too soon. I do not like bfns with this deep seeded squinty eye twitch that I need to shake. If it makes you feel any better, I reached into my drawer today while talking to my husband. I needed to test my LH level. I went at it and looked a the test for that dark Opk line of truth...punk was an hpt and BFN. I was so pissed! Apparently my box of opks came with ONE hpt. I was so bent on not testing at all this cycle and I still got a visit from the NSW(negative stick witch). :roll: So um, yeah, I tested bfn today too. (eye is still twitching). Oh, and I took our pic down from the post. I didn't want it left floating on the internet. I can always send it to you. :)

Loz: I'd go to see the doctor pronto. And while you wait for an appt. start gulping down plain old yogurt, no sugar added. Try to get 32oz in a day for 3 days. I know that sounds like a lot but you may have a bacteria war going in there. Drink water to flush out the bacteria but don't drown yourself. It very important to stay away from sugary foods to as they feed the bacteria. Use a PH balances feminine wash and stay airy. And make sure that if you receive any antibiotics that they are safe for pregnancy http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifes ... eek/expert. I really hope it clears up soon.

FLY: I've been down to Decatur a bit I'm up in Woodstock. Its a bit of a drive to your neck of the woods if you move there but not as far as Rome (MK...lol).

Star: How is going? You are in the tww right? I could be wrong. Once again, I will go peak at your chart....hehe..OH, yes, that is a nice rise. It is so steady. Praying its pointing to positive test in a few more days. hugs

Nickysy:Looking forward to what your plans will be going forward. I'm praying your test do a 180 and come back perfect for protocol. HUGS

HI EOE

AFM: Super tired. I have had O pains off and on today but I don't think it happened. We did however rock our anniversary in every way possible. So much till I had to tap out. Mr. Libido found his grove apparently leaving me crawling out of the ring. He thought it was funny. I am still looking at him like he's an imposter. :wink: I'll post my chart once I get a solid rise but I'll just be temping till 4dpo. No temp in the morning because I'm still up at 230 in the morning typing. :rofl:

Faith I'm sorry you accidentally took the hot instead of opk. That's a waste of a good test. lol I've done it before too. Sounds like I heard some faithisms in that last post! I love it. I'm glad you had a great anniversary and your dh was able to meet your needs!! That's always fun! I cannot imagine no sex for the rest of my pregnancy. I will however obey the rules but man it's tough. I can't even take care of business myself! Lol hope that's not tmi! I'm not allowed any orgasm as they can cause contractions hence bleeding.

Star I think I forgot you in my last post. I'm so sorry. I will get on my iPad and check your chart. I hope you od and caught the egg!!

It's almost 2 am here and I'm wide awake. I fell asleep at 10 and woke up at 1230. My dh took abby to see luke Bryan in concert in saint Louis tonight. We got her tickets for her bday. Anyway he's super tired trying to drive her home so I got up and called him to help keep him awake while he drives. They had a good time but he was so wore out from being in the hospital with me. I'm glad she didn't have to miss it bc she was so looking forward to going. I'm going to go try and get back to bed! Have a good evening or morning depending on where you are :)
