hi there Cherie. Im so glad you answered my post, girl ! My name is jessica :)

How long have you been TTC for?? My hubby and I have been TTC for 6 months now. Its funny that you mentioned robitussin because i actually started taking it this month ! Ive read alot about cervical mucus (funny to say that lol) and i think my cm is too thick. So, i started taking the robitussin and drinking more water. I can definately notice a difference in my cm. Maybe this month will be my month :)
Have you tried anything ?

Hey again!

No actually we haven't been doing anything different, maybe trying different times of day and doing it from the side (sorry if that was tmi) lol but um.. lol we have been trying for about 5 months. We arent really expecting anything to happen, I guess just tempting fate. Every month that goes by I lose a little bit of "the positive". I mean every month that passes we always get a negitive. So thats why I say were just play'n with fate right now. I tell god everyday though, its in your hands, I'm in his hands so do what you will with me. I dont know if you believe in god or even have a religion but it helps me to think about gods plan when I get a negitive result. I know hes waiting for the right time you know? Any who.. Well, Im 25 and I live in Arizona and I just cant wait for our life to begin with this baby were wishin for. I'm going to school right now doing some online classes on computers.. Just a little bit of me. lol.. Its nice to have this forum to post whenever you feel like venting.. ya know? Whenever you feel like just "typing" I'm here to respond.. I guess that's what makes us TTC Buddies.. lol...

TTUL hun.. Have a good day!!!

Hey Marly

Postby cherie1985 » Wed Aug 25, 2010 8:25 am

I'm glad you decided to join us in our quest sort-to-speak lol.. WELCOME! I'm Cherie and I'm 25, I'm sure you've already read ^ so.. lol.. May I ask you what PCOS is? I've heard of it but never knew what it is or how it affects you. I have 0 - blood so I'm scared about that. I'm very scared of having a miscarrage or something if our blood doesn't mix. Or even worse not being able to get pregnant cuz our blood is incompatable. : ( sad.. but I really like your posting. I'm going to go to that website and see when my ovulation date is. I'm pretty sure I know when I O'd this month but its always fun to try those calendars : )
Positivity rubs off.. Gotta keep it positive..
Anyways, I'll chat with ya'll later..

Well he said i dont have evidence of having pcos

i have "normal" hormone levels, a great U/S showing NO cysts on my ovaries :) and had follicles when the scan was done!!! : )

Hes not sure why my cycle went 110+ so who knows


he said to monitor for 3 months, and call in nov if things have evened out, if not we will try metformin to ovulate and what not, then he will just do a script over the phone!!! :)

YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH :D :D :D :D :D

YAYYYYYYY :jump:
Thats so great . Im glad you got good news .Does that mean you are ovulating? SOunds like you're getting back on the ttc track girl :wink:

As for me, i'm reallllllyyyyy upset b/c i ovulated either ysterday or today, and i woke up with a UTI. Im sure antibiotics won't be good for TTC ... :cry: I just feel really down right now about the whole thing.

Im 22 and my husband is 23 we have been ttc for 9 months. We MC right before that. I took clomid this month and had a HCG shot Im also on metformin. I felt super good this month about becoming pregnant. But now
Im 10dpo and feel depressed and fat lol. At 6 dpo i had light cramps i still have those. On 8 dpo i started becoming really tired and hungry. Now that I have eaten everything i feel Huge I know I am not cause I weigh the same but ya. I think It is all getting to my head and giving me fake symptoms.
