Hey Bebeck, have you tested yet or are you going to wait for AF? Sending loads of good luck wishes :)

Vault, I admire your determination! I can't remember if you said, have you tried Vitex to try and prolong your cycles? I haven't tried it, but I think I read somewhere it can help. Also, have you tried cough syrup around O to help with CM? Or tried baby aspirin (75mg)? I tried both of these the month I got my BFP... but unfortunately it wasn't meant to be.

I'm on CD13 and not sure if I'll be O soon - normally CD 15 although last month it was CD 18.

Hey there Vault and Dini, sorry I wasn't very active I had a very stressful week at work with long days. It actually made the tww faster but I did test at 11 dpo and got bfn. Then today 12 dpo my BBT started to drop so I expect AF tomorrow. :(
I spent a big part of the day sad and feeling sorry for myself. 7 months feel like a long time. But then I see Vault who keeps trying for years so I guess I should suck it up and stay focused :)
It's so hard though!
The good news is that my progesterone level is good and next week I will do day3 tests to complete the hormone testing.
DH is feeling down too so it's not great mood in our home tonight.
I wanted to do mucinex this last cycle but forgot to buy it. I think I'll do it next cycle. And do opk again.
So my plan will be: BBT and CM tracking, mucinex and opk during fertile window. BD every other day in the morning during fertile window, especially on opk positive day.
On to the next cycle!
How are you ladies? Any update?

Hi Dini, Vault, Trixie and everyone still active here,
I started "2019 baby hope buddy group" under buddy group section.
I thought more ladies might join and we can keep it going until all of us have our 2019 babies :)
I hope you join too!
If not I will keep following here as well. It's great to get updates from you!

Hi Bebeck, so sorry to hear this wasn't your month! It is really frustrating every month when AF arrives, but I'll keep routing for you, 7 months isn't too long so don't lose hope (I also know 7 months feels like forever when TTC and wondering when that BFP will come along)! Your plan for this month sounds good though, and sounds promising that all tests so far are coming back all good!
2019 baby hope group sounds like an excellent idea, I'll join that group and we can keep up to date there :)
As for me - I'm on CD17... think I'm O'ing today or tomorrow! Waiting for my temp to start rising!

Hey Vault! Its been absolutely amazing these past few days - I wish the sunshine would hang around for a few extra days :)
Are you having your scans again to check for O?
Also, we've been hanging out at the "2019 baby hope buddy group" group if you want to join us there!

I'm at 3dpo, I O'd really late this month at CD21 :/
I'm planning on testing at 10dpo

Nope, no scans this month, we're on our own with the Clomid (we'll do cd21 bloods to confirm if O happened or not, but based on the last two months it should.) It's CD14, so still a few days to go before we can assume the TWW has started.Still nothing at all to report. :)

Hey Vault! How's it going? Do you think O has happened now?

I'm 9dpo today and planning on testing tomorrow - maybe a bit early, but I'm going to do it anyway!

Yo! Not much happening really. I don't know about O at all. The other day (cd18) I got this sharp pain in my lower middle abdomen and a little on the left side. I noted similar pain on cd20 last month and also the month before. BUT on both previous occasions it lasted all day, the pain, this time was just for an hour and then the discomfort eased. So I don't know if it's the same thing at all. Other than that - nothing. Hot flushes have finally eased (shame, as it's just turned cold again here after I suffered through all the sunny days). I'm at docs for bloods tomorrow morning (cd21) though they never send the results until way into the next month. Waiting to see if AF shows - when she's about to, I need to call for repeat Clomid prescription as we're through the first three months. Appt with OBGYN late next month - don't know if she's change anything or keep us as we are.

Haha, well don't be disheartened by a negative because, as you know, it's a bit early. But hey, I've read of plenty of 10DPO positives so GL and FX to you! :D :D

Hey! Did you get your day 21 test done today? Usually the day 21 test is done 7 days past ovulation (this is going by a classic 28 day cycle where ovulation happens on day 14). Do you think you could be a bit early for it? And can you repeat the test in a few days? Also, are you in the South East? I'm in the South East but my GP hadn't referred me to an OBGYN - I was referred straight to the fertility clinic once it had been about a year of TTC without any luck. I would have liked to try Clomid (even though I ovulate but heard it helps), instead they referred me straight to IVF as its free before 40 and to make sure I get all three rounds I'm entitled to before the big 4-0... in case it doesn't work first time :( - We were going to try a couple of rounds of IUIs while we wait for our IVF nurses appointment in June but I had the two CPs back to back in the meantime so we didn't end up doing the IUIs.

I'm feeling confused whether I want to go through with IVF but I don't see any other way as its been 18 months of TTC already and I'm not getting any younger. I just didn't imagine conceiving that way and don't want to go through the whole process (I hope my IVF comments don't trigger the spammers on this thread now).

P.S. I tested today first thing with a frer and it was negative - maybe too early but also not feeling anything special - even my PMT is non existent at the moment - I usually have pretty bad PMT by now! Anyway - too much personal info here which I might delete after a couple of days because of stranger danger :/

Hi everyone! Not much of a story yet... SO and I are literally TTC starting today. Have an appointment to have IUD removed, and off we go! IUD is copper, so should be able to start right away. I'm 35 & he's 39, and this is a first for both of us, and will be a first grandbaby for both sets of parents, as both our siblings have chosen not to reproduce. So no pressure... Currently CD13, so O is coming up. Have been taking prenatals for a couple of weeks. So so so SO ready for this!
