Yay! Well done girl on the weight loss especially for AF week. :D One day I will be where you are weight loss wise. You must be feeling soooo much better and lighter. I love SW, I just love it. I'm roasting a chicken now and having some baked veggies for dinner and peaches with some fat free topping for dessert (or pudding as you and I say lol). I'm also going to try and make this "meatza" thing this weekend. Everyone on in instagram is going on about it.

Comforting as well to know your supplies are here for your next bash at :fertilization: :D

Well done on the weight loss, ladies! I was down 8 pounds from a month ago, but gained a couple back over the holiday weekend. I'm sticking to my plan, though, and hoping to be down a few more before my doctor's appt on the 24th.

Simone, did your doctor put you on estrogen and progesterone for your short period? My periods are almost nothing (I basically just spot heavily for 2, occasionally 3 days. No clots, but fresh red blood). Both my OB and my OB aunt said that wasn't necessary indicative of a thin lining, but I still have my doubts. Before Henry (and before my C-section and year of mirena use) I would have one or two heavy flow days, then it would ease up to medium for a day then light or spotting for another day or two. Every professional I have spoken to has said periods often change after having a baby, but it just doesn't seem right to me that they would be that light.

Anyway, welcome to the tww!

Eoe, hi! I feel bad for not replying individually, but I've only had a minute here and there to scroll through everything. I hope you are all doing well! Who all is in the tww right now?

Oh, and my update: I'm 6 dpo (possibly 7, according to when I think I actually O'd, but I'm going with FF on this one for convenience.) I don't have any symptoms going on or anything, but my chart had a big early dip that I've only seen on my bfp charts. (Here are two of my bfp charts and this one. The dip could have actually been 4 dpo if I O'd when I think I did.)

I have mixed feelings about what I even want to happen this month. Of course I want that bfp, but I find that I'm assuming it won't stick, so part of me wants a little bit more of a break from all of that. There's no looking back now, though!

Becca - yes, my lining was thin and then they had me on clomid which thins it out even more so I had to do the clomid and then supplement with the vaginal estrogen up to cd 12 then stop for ovulation, then the progesterone 3dpo onward. It (the lining) was too scanty for proper implantation....but the estrogen does the job really well and I now have a good four day period with spotting on cd5. I would get the Doc to test your lining, it really could be the culprit. Or, it might not be but at least you will know.

Your chart looks so good. Like a mirror image of the bfp ones. FX. :D And high five on the weight loss. :D

Thank you! I'm actually feeling pretty confident this evening that we caught the egg, which is slightly terrifying to me. My ankles are starting to look puffy again (I had some major swelling before my last bfp) and I had some very light, tight cramps. I don't see my doctor for another few weeks, but if I get a bfp next week I'll call immediately to see if they will prescribe prometrium to replace the progesterone cream I'm using. If that positive test does show up, I'm just hoping the small dose of progesterone from the cream was enough during my LP and the prometrium can take over. Regardless, I'll be bringing it all up with my doctor. I expressed worry about my lining after my first mc and he kind of shrugged it off, but at this point I think he'd be more willing to listen.

Yup, totally agree with you re everything but esp. the doc/lining issue. You just have the right to know - it's your healthcare plan you know? you're paying for it!

Exactly. I think my doctor was hesitant to jump to conclusions after the first one. The second one they were kind of wishy washy, saying that something could be up, but 2 in a row isn't proof. I know my doctor doesn't like to do unnecessary testing and he did say that some of it can leave me with a big bill, so I know he's just looking at the big picture. That being said, it's so hard from the side of the patient when you are worried there is something wrong and fearful of having to lose another baby just to get them to look into it.

If I'm being honest, I feel pregnant. That's so scary to me right now. I doubled up on the progesterone cream the last two days, even though I read midwives often suggest 4x the recommended dose for helping prevent mc. I just can't afford to go through that much cream lol.

But who knows... Maybe it's just gas I'm feeling. ;)

7 dpo today. I took a test today and got a very, very faint line after the time window. So light that it could be an evap or shadow, but it's definitely there. I usually get my bfp's by 10 dpo, 11 at the latest, but with super faint hints for a couple of days beforehand.

Thanks! I keep going back and forth. Part of me thinks it's a hint of a coming bfp, then moments later I think I'm crazy for reading into what could very well be an evap/indent on 7dpo lol. This morning I didn't even bother testing, but it will probably get the best of me this afternoon and I'll dip another one, just to see lol.
