At this point I'm definitely going to have to do something. At 5+ years, I don;t have much choice =(. My entire cycle length is fine. 29-32 days. I am just ovulating poor quality eggs too early =(. Or so thats what my RE thinks.

Hopeful...I'm sending you TONS of babydust and positive thoughts!! :fertilization: :babydustg: :bfp: :sticky:

Afm...got some upsetting news today that I wasn't expecting. My thyroid and FSH are completely normal. But, my AMH is very low. So, as per my RE, my egg reserve is low and the egg quality is probably poor. My RE wants my DH's SA done asap. If his SA comes back poor, we won't be eligible for IUI or IVF. If it comes back good, we still may have to use donor's eggs, depending on just how low my egg reserve is and how poor the quality is. This was NOT what I was expecting. I was expecting an issue with my progesterone, not this. My RE wants me to go for an hsg and more invasive tests after my DH's SA results come back. She didn't specify what the invasive tests were, as she wants to wait until after the SA to discuss all of that. I'm in a very down mood now. Does anyone have any experience with very low AMH?

One of my best friends is due literally any time! Her due date was yesterday. After work today, she was in my room and three different people dropped in to talk to her about the baby, and being due, and delivery and everything else...for literally an hour!!! I am SOOOO happy for her and her DH - they ttc for 14 months - and they will be great parents. And most of the time I'm fine. But when they all finally left today, I just wanted to cry. So, pray I can just be filled with joy for them when the baby is finally on it's way!!! I know you ladies know what I mean and how it feels :/

Hey ladies...my best friend had her baby this morning....I visited this afternoon and was the first one besides them to get to hold her. Thankfully, at the hospital I was only very happy and joyful and in a good place mentally.

But since getting home about 730pm I am just VERY sad :'( My husband was trying to be sweet but said three things that made me even sadder, so im sure I was short with him. I will be 11dpo tomorrow and not hopeful at all, bad cramps tonight. Just longing, and afraid and SAD! Please pray for me, if that's something you do. I know God has a plan for me, but just asking "why?" tonight.

No "news" really. . .some cramps, tinged cm/light spotting, bbt down today, so i dont feel like thats a good sign :( might poas in the a.m. If AF doesnt start overnight. My RE appt is April 1st!

I didnt go see my friend and the baby yesterday...i was just too sad. But i did go see a diff friend who struggled with infertility 10yrs or so ago. I knew she would understand, love on me and give me Godly counsel. I felt much better when i left her house last night. I did go see my friend and the baby today though.

Choobey, how are you doing?

Omgosh yall! I am freaking out! This morning i poas, and i thought i saw a glimmer of something on the pg test! My heart was pounding in my chest. But i thought my eyes and heart and mind were playing a trick on me and i had to leave my house early (645) to be at work early.

It was a super busy stressful day. I got home early and took a nap. Just thought of the test from this morning and went and dug it out of the trash. There is definitely a second line!!!!!!!! Just poas again but not sure it will work since its not fmu. I looked back at tests from days ago that were still in the trash and none of th have a second line.


I am freaking out! Do yall think its legit?!? Or should i wait til i test again in the morning before i show/tell dh?!? Or go get a diff test?!? I have had some bloody cm and my temps havent stayed too high.

Help!!!
