A thread for us all to keep in touch and be there for the tough days and celebrate the good ones.

CD3 for me - a bit disappointed, but should be used to that by now!
Where is everyone else at the moment?

I know I don't know you girls very much but please pray or send positive sticky vibes my way.
I just got my bloodwork back from yesterday. At 12 or 13dpo my beta is at 6. This is very low but still normal. We are re-checking tomorrow. I need it to double to consider it not chemical or miscarry . I am really trying not to freak out right now!
My progesterone is also low, I have to start progesterone today.

Please, PLEASE say a special prayer for me and bean !
Thank you!

haven't posted on here for a while, but have been reading everybody's posts and keeping you all in my thoughts.

To echo what somebody said a few days ago, you don't need to work on acceptance yet B, there's still time.

Tiff, I was so pleased to hear of your bfp. Try not to worry, it's still such early days. lots of pregnant women wouldn't even know they were pregnant yet.

I am 9dpo here. Have got further than last month when AF came at only 8dpo. Have been on B6 all month, that may have done the trick. Tested today, silly me. BFN of course. Am going to try to forget it for a few days. And enjoy this lovely weather that we are having in the UK of course!! (Not!)

Oh fingers and toes crossed for you Tiff my lovely,.. thinking of you..

I'm 2DPO i think as feel i ovulated on Monday 9 July,..and my temps up higher now than pre ov temps, so think i did. We bd'd the morning before so we will see if the swimmers have stuck around to party! LOL.

This month symptom wise is different for me though as i usually get pretty sore boobs and have the cramps on and off right through from ovulation until after AF has gone,..but other than my ov pains,..i've got nothing,..time will tell i guess..

I've got a 'fancy dress Find your Inner Rock' 50th party to go to over the weekend, so that should be fun seeing all the costumes about the place of folk that are dressed up! Ha.

My horse keeps me busy and occupied so that's great.

Love and Luck and Lots of Sticky Stuff to you all.. :praying:

I've been off on vacation so it seems like I've missed quite a bit!

CG Tiff, that is fantastic news! My thoughts and prayers go out to you.

It's funny your anxiety TTC seems to be overwhelming but it is nothing compared to when you get the BFP! I remember my first trimester I was on pins and needles, hoping and praying all would work out then all the tests to ensure my baby was healthy was another obstacle to overcome but the end result makes all the anxiety in the world worth it.

I am 4DPO and feel this cycle is a bust because my DH, DS and I were at a cottage with our friends and their 3 year old twins so no BDing happening there. We arrived at the cottage 2 days prior to O and O'd our last day there. Unless the swimmers stuck around prior to going to the cottage I think I'm a bust (or swimmers were really fast to catch the egg when we BD 1DPO) ... but stranger things have happened. Perhaps being with my DS and the twins will bring me luck ... I know looking after the 3 kids prior to everyone waking up (I'm the morning person in the bunch) was really a treat ... it made me relize how much I want more children.

We will be celebrating my DS's 2nd birthday on Friday (yes Friday the 13th) and I can not believe how time flies!

Well, I went home yesterday after work and took a test and it was BFN. Today I am having normal AF. Doc wants me to come in for beta to be sure "not preg"....really..haha. Anyway, cd1 here...on to next cycle :).

Madasa :hi: You are coming up on exciting days. Testing next week ?


TTC#2, All those baby vibes with the twin could have just kept that sperm alive for that egg :). You just never know :). Hopeful for you!
Intersting that you mention my anxiety with ttc, very thought provoking for me. I just hate the whole process of ttc. Pregnancy is bliss (most of the time). My personality is to worry so it would have kicked in with pregnancy too. But, then again once I catch the egg it is not in my hands anymore...I really can't do anything else except be healthy. TTC I feel like I have to control the situation. Does that make sense ? btw, I love to analyze and be analyzed expecially by intelligent women!

Janovich, YAY on the party and the horse :). YAY on being 2dpo too :). Weekend is coming so you should get through this next few days until implantation pretty quickly :). Hopeful those symptoms mean something :).

Missymoo, CONGRATS on longer LP. That is awesome and encouraging :)!

Lucky, sorry about af symptoms. Maybe we are on the same schedule now. I'm thinking I may do meds this cycle, not sure. What are you thinking you will do?

Earthweave, O is coming :)

Thank you earthweave. Not yet. I have an anterior placenta so doctor said a few more weeks. I think I feel her every now and then but can't be sure.
