OH Empire :(. Just saw you got af...so sorry. Man, I was hopeful for cycle 9 for you. Moving onto 10..maybe you just need a double digit to get you to that bfp.

afm..I am such a chicken I couldn't even bring myself to poas today at 8dpo. I just didn't want to ruin my Monday...Mondays are usually bad enough. Dh and dd are under the weather so I was up with her too last night and didn't have a good hold. The only thing that is off is I have had a weird nausea in the middle of the day into the eve both Sat and Sun...pretty out of the ordinary but it could just be drainage and/or I am getting an ulcer :(. Anyways, just can't let myself get hopeful...remaining unmotivated...obviuosly..hahaha!

How are you ttc?

Is it just us three on here now? Where is Rocky's mom? Wonder how she is :(. And Jan???

Hi again Ladies,

I've been lurking for the last couple of weeks and hope you are all doing well. Fingers crossed that the 2ww will end with some positives!!

AFM, Just got back from my second ultrasound -my second ultrasound without an embryo...... Should be 7w2d, so we should have seen an embryo and heartbeat by now. Really disappointed. I have an appointment with my OB in a couple of hours, but doubt that she will have any good news for me. Kind of just want to curl up and pull the blanket over my head. I am pretty sure I will have a D&C soon...... I had a missed miscarriage/D&C a few months before I got pregnant with my son a couple of years ago. Feeling unbelievably sad.

Oh my goodness Hoopla, I am so sorry. If I could give you a big hug I would. For what it's worth, try to stay positive, lean on us when you are ready and grieve for as long as you need. DO NOT listen to those who say "well at least yo got pregnant at 40"; or " you have a child, isn't that enough". My prayers are with you and your family.

I just thought I'd give you all an update FF says I O'd on CD17 (2 days late) but I never did get a positive OPK .... very very close to postiive on CD17 but the line was not the same or darker then the control so I never counted it as positive but my temp shift did happen after CD17.

With all the stress and mis-timed BD, I'm afraid I am out this cycle.

What are my chances of my luteal phase staying the same? I always have a 15 day luteal phase.

Oh Hoopla...dear I am SO SORRY :(. My heart brakes for you! I just have no words..except we are here for you to vent too...whenever you are ready or need us. Prayers and hugs and tears for you...

Empire..your long lp phase is good but the wait does really suck..I am sorry. But, maybe it is what you need to get that bfp.

ttc..I would think if you did get a shift in your temp then it means you O'd even if you didn't get a pos opk. Fitblonde didn't get a pos opk with this baby either from what I remember..she had to only go on temp and it was a late O. Your story this month sounds VERY similiar to hers..just sayin ;0! Anyway, as far as your period is concerend I would assume it will come on time since you did get a shift in temp. That is what I would think anyway..no expert here for sure. Still have fx for you!

afm...well, I tested this am at 9dpo and it is a faint but clear :bfp: :jump: :yay:
I am nauseous, TERRIFIED (of chemical or mc) and in shock :omg:
I will test out this week to make sure it is getting darker and call OB next week..I don't want to get excited yet. I would load a pic but I have no idea how to do that...sorry.

Thanks Ladies!!! I think I will test it out this week and do bloodwork on Friday.
Hearing about the chemcial on the bloodwork was much more heartwrenching then seeing those strips get less and less dark followed by af. So, I will wait until friday. That way I can do it here at work and get the results that day before the weekend!!

Tiffany!!! I am so thrilled for you!! Please keep us all posted on the happenings!! Congratulations!!

AFM -thank you so much ladies for all the kind words. My OB wants me to try meds to empty out my uterus instead of a D&C -ugh. I'll be doing it on Thursday.... This is a bit of a nightmare... Probably won't ovulate again for a couple of months, so can't TTC for a while. Thank you all for your support!! I'll be lurking and hoping for some more BFPs from you all soon and watching for more continued good news from Tiffany!!

Best wishes to you all!

Tiff -- That's wonderful news! Congratulations! I will pray for a healthy pregnancy for you. Have faith and take good care of yourself. Your news definitely gives all of us here much hope that our turn will soon come.

Hoopla -- You can count on our support and prayers for you to recover quickly and get back on the TTC journey.

Empire -- There's still hope. Stay optimistic.

Tiff's BFP was a welcome development for me, especially after AF arrived on Monday (CD24). I was feeling pretty dejected, still wondering what in the world could be wrong with my system. As far as I know, we did everything right, BD'd 3 consecutive nights as soon as I got a positive OPK, skipped a day, then BD'd one more time (following the SMEP). We used Preseed and EPO as well. But as usual, AF arrived 12 days after O day. I ovulated early, and sure enough, AF arrived early :( I'll be quitting my second-shift job next week, so I'm just comforting myself that our TTC attempt next cycle should be more relaxed, and I pray, more successful.

I really hope Tiff's success would rub off on all of us! God is good, He will make it happen in His time (although I'd rather that it come SOON :) )

Thanks Rocky's mom!!! I do beleive EVERYONE on here will get their bfp in His time. I don't see 40's as a hinderance..yes it has it's challenges but it is definately not a deal breaker. TOO MANY bfp's just on this thread alone for us to even consider that.
I wonder if your cycle was early with O because of stress or if there just wasn't enought time to make a good egg with an early O..I have no idea...just thinking outloud. I do think this cycle will be alot less stressful for you and ttc. FX.

Empire..moving on postively right??? Sorry about af :(.

afm..I am SO NAUSEOUS. Will post pee sticks shortly. This morning I thought I was going to puke when I got out of my car at work. Then a coworker asked me, "what is wrong with you, you don't look good"? WAHOO for nausea..not really but it confirms we are still pregnant and I am taking that as a BLESSING :)!!
