Brooke, Welcome! :) Yeah, your SIL sounds like she has some stuff she needs to work out...

Hi EOE!

I just had my first appointment, and while I don't want to bring anyone down, I'm just stoked, so I wanted to give an update. Baby M is measuring at 7w5d, which I thought I would be 8 weeks today (close enough), EDD according to the doctor is January 31st, and heartbeat was 162.

I'm sending so much baby dust to you all!!! <3 <3 <3

Maggie and Kat- I, for one, totally welcome you guys posting updates! I love hearing about success stories, since we all met through here because we all were struggling with TCC to some degree. We might be envious a bit, but it doesn't mean that we can't still be supportive and share in your joy.

Brooke: I understand how frustrating it feels to be always feeling one-upped. It's a difficult position to be in. I've found that people who feel the need to be like that have something missing in their own lives... Welcome to the group and I hope you find this board as supportive as I have.

Welcome Brooke - It's OK to be upset when someone gets pregnant when you're trying but don't let it pull you down just keep focusing on yourself and your journey. Everyone's journey is different - some are short and some are long. There were plenty of days I would be down after seeing friends announcing that they're expecting after we were trying for so long. I would recommend (like Simone said) tracking your basal temp and using OPKS. It took us 14 continuous cycles with a miscarriage 6 cycles in. I just got my BFP at the end of May and i hope it sticks.

Good luck to those who are testing soon!

Hey Maggie- that news is so awesome! :D :D :D :D and such a nice thing to happen for you after yesterday's difficulties!

Kathryn - Love your new profile pic and title! :D

Kat (Kitty) - omg, your willpower is mindbending. I would have to test.

Oh I forgot Brookemc (I take it your first name is Brooke) when we make a new thread, we will add your name to the front page. I can't do it now, because Becca (the thread originator) is having a break and only she can do that until I make a new thread for her when we get to 20 pages.

Kat -(Kj) - Hi momma - how are the little ones?

EOE - Hi

Hi Ladies

Great to hear from you all I love seeing all your updates!

I'll do a proper update to you all when I get chance!

CD16 and I've not had a +OPK but I ran out yesterday so haven't had chance to test again, I've still got watery cm so don't think I've ovulate yet?
My temps are still fairly similar, I'm still waiting for a spike to confirm things but it doesn't help that the weather here is quite warm so don't know how much I can trust them?

Anyway DH and I are still BDing every other day to cover our bases but it seems I'm gonna have a long cycle this month (the last two I've ovulated CD13/14) guess not this month?

Speak soon!

Watery CM is just as fertile as EWCM! Some women never get EWCM. Maybe try mucinex around your fertile period/closer to a positive OPK. It SERIOUSLY helped me. :)

Yes! Except mine wasn't a syrup, they were tablets. I had a cold/allergies anyway, so I was using them for dual purposes. Lol. Yeah, you'll want to get the just plain ole' regular one. Mucinex or the generic name is Guaifenesin. The DM is for wetter coughs, so it dries you up. I know that Kat (KittyKat) got some in the liquid form.

Lol yup that's me!! Two little beans - can you believe it!!? I still can't. I'm gonna have 8 little limbs poking me in a few months haha! Well there's definitely a higher probability of multiples with the fertility drugs! Risk I was willing to take I guess but we are over the moon!!

Welcome Brooke! You've found a great group of women here!

I miss you Becca if you're lurking at all - hope you're doing alright. Sending thoughts and prayers.

Yes, I find the liquid works faster but I found the pills and took the highest recommended dose this cycle and my CM was fabulous even though it took a bit longer for the CM to show up.
