Vault, yay for ovulation and good luck for the tww! I hope it's the one for you!
Dini, so sorry AF showed up. It sucks. Better luck next cycle!
Ladies, it's nice to share with you and know I'm not the only one feeling the pressure of on demand bd.
I got 3 hormones checked and will do 3 more at day21/day3. I'll have to read it off the doc note since I forgot which one when but the main one I'm interested in is AMH since I'm so worried about my age and egg reserves... FX :)
OPK still negative at CD 13. Maybe tomorrow?
Welcome Trixie. Sorry about bfn. You can join our waiting club. It's awesome that you have frozen eggs! If I end up doing IVF I will definitely get some frozen reserve. Does using them require IVF?

Hello ladies. I tested opk again tonight and it's getting darker but not quite sure if considered positive yet. Any opinions?

Hey Bebe, are you testing once a day? If you are, I would start counting that as a positive. Test again tomorrow and compare. Reason being that if you only test once a day you can miss the peak slightly - so true peak could have been between yesterday's and today's test... or between today's and tomorrow's. Either way, it's a very strong line so looks like you're on your way now :D
Keep us updated!
Also, keep us updated on your tests and how they go!
@Trixie and Vault, any news from you?

Thanks Dini for the tips. I tested in evening and morning and Friday morning it looked pretty even so we bd right then hehe. It's now back to negative so I assumed that was the peak. We usually bd in evening because I'm not an early morning person and getting up for work is hard enough so let's see if this makes any difference :)
Today Saturday my temperature started to rise so I'll probably start my tww tomorrow. I am committed to not go crazy this time! Will plan lots of activities to keep my mind of it.
Vault, Trixie, how is your tww?
Dini what's your plan for this next cycle. I hope you get it!

I hope this is your month bebeck! And planning loads of activities sounds like a good idea to keep you distracted during the wait!
We normally also BD in the evenings because OH isn't a morning person... although I do prefer the mornings because I'm not a good evening person! Ha!
I'm on CD4 at the mo and my plan this month is not to take loads of the stuff I've been taking - I think I'm going to stick with multi-vits, fish oil and COQ10. I might skip the OPKs this month but not sure if that will drive me crazy not knowing exactly!
I tried not temping/no OPKs a few months back so that I wouldn't obsess and the not knowing when/if I O'd was quite stressful and I ended up obsessing even more! Haha!
Vault and Trixie, how did you tww go?

Yo! Still stuck in the TWW - nothing to report at all here. CD23, probably 5DPO, no symptoms, nothing of note.
My cycle went to 29 days last month: so I have another six at least to wait out. Though we think O was a day earlier this month than last - so maybe I'll go back to my usual 28 days this month. Will just have to wait and see...

Happy Easter all!

Nope. AF came last Friday after a number of BFN's so I wasn't all too disappointed/surprised. Got to have some wine over the holiday weekend which was the silver lining (no pun intended haha). Gearing up for another month and thinking about some supplements for DH. Have others tried CoQ10? I just heard about it but feel like I may be behind the ball (pun intended)?

Hey everyone! Good to see updates. Trixie sorry AF showed up. FX for next cycle.
I got some blood test results today for thyroid, prolactin and AMH. The nurse left a voicemail to say they were all normal. I called back to get the actual numbers. Thyroid and prolactin look totally fine according to Google :) but AMH is 6.5 which seems unusually high. The internet reports typical numbers 1-4. I understand that a low AMH is more problematic but still i wonder if it could mean something? I saw that PCOS can go with high AMH. I dont think i have symptoms of PCOS but still... I will try and call tomorrow to get clarification.
I still have to do blood checks at cd21 and cd3. FX
Also I bought a pineapple to eat pineapple core during implantation period. Anyone else trying that?
I told DH I'm ready to start a religion just to have faith and get relief during this whole process haha (not a believer until now)
He thinks we can try for another 6 months but I can't imagine continuing this craziness much longer!
Thank you all for being here!

Hey all!! Vault, when are you planning to start testing? Or will you wait and see if AF will show?
Trixie, sorry to hear it wasn't your month, hopefully this will be it!! I've been taking CoQ10 but I don't take the one everyone keeps raving about. The one you're supposed to take is Ubiquinol - I can't swallow tablets so I've been taking gummies which have the regular CoQ10 (Ubiquinone I think). Can't tell if it's helping but the gummies are nice! OH has also started taking them - he doesn't have any swimmer issues so don't know if they'll help him or not!!

Bebeck, did you call your docs today to ask about AMH? I just had a look at mine to compare but my clinic does a different scale and can't compare.
I haven't tried pineapple but maybe I will this month! Hana!
I also wonder how long to keep all this madness up for - I feel that if I give up I might regret it later down the line that I didn't keep trying when I could have.

As for me, I'm on CD6 so nothing to report for now - I like it how we're all on different stages of our cycles, so there is always someone to cheer for :)

Yo! I'm gonna wait for AF. She ALWAYS shows hahaha. No point wasting the sticks...

It's CD26, I think 7dpo. Still a few days waiting about to go. On the plus side, I don't feel my usual pre-AF symptoms, so I'm not convinced she'll arrive on CD29 - if nothing else, the Clomid is making my cycles longer and that's what we need to happen. Hoping she turns up about CD33, that would be 14DPO - a decent luteal phase, I reckon. But she's never been that late before, so who knows.

Oh no sorry Vault! Hang in there. FX for the next cycle.
Dini enjoy the bd :)
AFM 8dpo nothing to report. I'm still debating how early I want to start testing...
I have a busy week coming at work so hopefully that will make the time go by faster.
Good news is that after further research I think my AMH is fine. And I will have progesterone results next week.
I dislike the tww so much now! It is a struggle to stay and act normal.

Yep. Literally to the hour an' all, if there's one thing I'm sure of it's that my cycle's regular as hell. To be honest I wasn't feeling it this month, always knew she was lurking round the corner. The longer it drags on - this is our fifth year TTC, and actually my seventh year - the less bothered I am each time she turns up. I know it's the opposite way for a lot of people but honestly, I just don't have the energy to be bothered at this point - or to expect anything other than her timely arrival each month.
