Hi ladies, today has been a crazy day!! We had a drug test this morning so I was unable to test :( I'm coming down with the usual "season changing" crud and considering my body has been used to Summer heat and the weather in Africa for so long I kind of expected it, but it's aweful. I feel like I got hit by a truck. Anyways I just tested and it's looking the same as yesterday so we will wait some more. O and to add to my TTC stress/moodiness I got a text from my brother,(who is in his 40's, wife in her 30's) and was told that I'm going to be an Aunt(due date is my husband's b-day),let me mention they decided to try and she got pregnant immediately. If only we could all have that luck!! Hope everyone has been having a good day.

ugh. some people will just never know how much we go through! TTC is definitely hard. It can take it out of you for sure!

Tinley, thanks so much for asking. I'm doing well. I'll post a test tomorrow morning. still early, but I have tests to pee on.

I noticed people's favorite thing to tell us is we're trying too hard and we need to stop thinking about it. I just want to scream every time i hear that!! Women who have never had trouble TTC will never understand no matter how much we tell them or try to explain.

i was talking to big about that earlier today. It's so frustrating to hear that. I can't get myself pregnant when I time it perfectly, and you want me to just wing it?

So I know this isn't about TTC, but for those of you that believe, please say a prayer, I just got a phone call from my child's school asking if there was a child in my home with my daughter. I said no and they let me know if I saw her please call 911. A few minutes after I hung up a helicopter landed in the school yard and a child (female) was loaded into it. :( I pray that all is well, it's so sad to even think that something has happened to a child.

Lisa- Exactly, I feel like some people are being judgmental when they say things like that, but I try not to take it to heart because I know they don't get it.

Only someone who has been through this journey knows how hard it is,all my friends and family knows my struggle,they don't know details,like BD timing,opk's,testing early,but they do know I been trying for a long time and I pretty much tried everything,they always have been suportive.They mean well by suggesting to relax or don't try that hard but is so anoying hearing it:))

For those of you who feel like you are trying everything, have you ever tried acupuncture? I can't help but wonder if it really is a miracle solution. Maybe just try it for one cycle, as it's not only supposed to help with fertility, but it's also good for relaxing your mind. Even though the whole time I was on the table, I couldn't help but think of the reason why I was there (to help me get pregnant) I did leave there with a sense of relaxation.

Ladies, hope I didn't offend when I asked if u thought maybe we are trying too hard. I also meant that for myself. I know it's hard hearing that but I just wondered sometimes if there was some truth to it. I mean I am totally guilty of trying very hard and it's so normal and like u said if we can't try this hard what hope do we have winging it. Anyway just wanted to say sorry for saying it and I hope none of you are upset with me bc of it.

Danaa, how much cq10 do u take? I was taking 300mg but read that 600mg is the minimum dosage. Also do u take it everyday even after O? I read somewhere that u should not take it if preg, so do we stop after o or keep going until we see bfp?

Ok ladies I need some help, I just went to th toilet and sorry if tmi but I had a very very light blood like a drop or 2 when I wiped. I never spot! If I do spot it's a lot more than what I just witnessed. I will wait and see if I get full flow tomorrow bc if it's my period starting I will always get a full flow especially the second day.
Now I'm just thinking back. If I O a week late bc of clomid bc I remember having cm cd19 and cd20 left side o pain on that would make me 7-8dpo is it possible it could be implantation bleeding?? Your thoughts ladies. .? Would love some insight.

Emilia, could be IB if you O'ed late definitely so there is still hope. But also Clomid changes your symptoms, sorry, just giving what it did for me. Not only did it change my cycle and O length, but I used to only spot the day AF arrived, and she would arrive within an hour or two of the spotting. NOW I spot on and off for a few days before AF shows up. Which is what is happening to me right now! It's playing mind games with me thinking oh it went away, maybe I'm preggers, nope it's back, AF is on her way. Sorry!! Best thing as hard as it is, is to just wait and see! That's what I'm doing right now.

Also, I totally understand what you meant about trying too hard, the whole thing is difficult. You have to get the timing right, yet your supposed to relax, but honestly after as long as all of us have been trying, how can you really relax?? My sister tells me that all the time, and I'm like, really, you didn't go through this, and ummm you know me, I'm a Virgo, I can't relax LOL!

Called a specialist yesterday. I've been doing everything through my OB/GYN the past 17 months, and it's time for fertility specialists. She told me she won't schedule me an appointment til AF shows up since there's still a chance. We'll see, I'm betting on AF today! So looks like I'll be making my appointment this afternoon! BUT to be honest, I'm glad she told me if I get AF to not refill my prescription for Clomid. I know it has worked for some women, and they have great success stories, but I'm the exception that 5 cycles didn't work for, and it really messed up my body. So I'm actually relieved, I was starting to feel like a chemistry project! There's always next month, right?!

I'm still trying to remain hopeful for myself, and definitely hopeful for you all!!! Praying for all of us!!

Betsyboo, I thing youre right and it's AF. Just waiting for the full flow to arrive. Hopefully it comes tomorrow. Don't want to be spotting on and off.

Not sure now whether to continue clomid or give up,?? Gyno increased dosage to 100mg but I'm scared I'm gonna end up worse than what I started with meaning infertility. I was gonna try next cycle and then if no bfp stop it. But I'm really in 2 minds and so confused. I'm scared of it causing damage to my lining and infertility Permanently. Any advice would be great. I did this cycle 5-9 now gyno wants me to do 2-6 but I've read 3-7 has more success.

I really hope u get the bfp this cycle. Hang in there and keep the faith. I know being able to relax and optimistic each chcle is emotionally draining and hard to do. I really hope it happens for u soon.

Did u o naturally without clomid?

How many dpo are u? So AF is due for u today? I hope the witch stays away. Come on baby dust work your magic.

Lisa- your chart looks awesome! Glad we have so many new faces! Well, I'm giving vitex one last chance. Im hoping it will lengthen my cycle by a few days so I can start my clomid immediately after my OB appointment. As of now, I'll go in on cd 6. I just need a 28 day cycle to time that out right! Or I'll have to wait a whole cycle before starting my clomid again. I think I'm going to ask for 100 MG too & some progesterone. I'm getting excited!!
