Not sure why the thread is showing up three times. I did have an issue with the page dropping off just as I submitted so sorry about that ladies. I hope you found the right thread. If I knew how to delete the others I would. :?

Absolutely crushed. 13dpo and bfn. My children have to deal with a sobbing mess today. I have always gotten a bfp by now if I was actually pregnant.

hi

I will try and catch up with everyone on Monday... I need advise... DH has been sick with a cold all week, last night it hit me hard and I feel terrible.. my head feels like it is going to explode. I ovulate in the next 4-5 days, and I am limited on what I can take.. any one have any ideas on what I can use? Havent done anything except for a salt water saline neti pot treatment... which did help a TON and took away the pressure and I can breath now.

also an FYi for everyone... this morning, I was looking online and saw where it says do not take ibuprofen when TTC except for during week of AF... UGH.... took 2 this morning, it states it can interfere with ovulation..

On a up note the diflucan took care of the yeast infection... but for some reason all of this happening is not making me feel good about this month.
Me: 44 DH: 45
TTC #1 since June 2012
DH- Perfect
ME- DOR due to age

March 2013 started taking DHEA 25mg 3 times a day FSH is now 8.5... down from 17.8 from 3 months earlier. They want it well below 10.

June, 2013- AMH level .016 (low) they want it over 1.

June 2013- Antral Follicle Ct- 6 (low) they want it over 10.

update: my Dr just called me back, I can take mucinex only.. which I am already taking for the clomid I just finished.... she also did confirm tylenol only, no ibuprofen.. but said that is most important after ovulation..... NEVER KNEW THAT... so hope this may help some of you..

shanessa, looking forward to you u/s results today :)!!!!

second, yep mucinex is it darlin..sorry but it will help with your cm :). I think follicle size and lining is all that is important at that u/s. Are you still doing opk too?

Momoftresures..I am so SO sorry about bfn. Those are so hard. Hoping the easter fun will make the pity party quick and easier. I usually give myself 24hours.

Ray, HI!!!

afm...nothing new. cd27, no pos OPK this month at all. Hoping and praying that af will happen this weekend..I am REALLY, REALLY over this cycle! Had lots of fun yesterday picking out dd Easter gift yesterday..first for me..just made me happy. Also had a facial..that helped my mood too. Yesterday was supposed to be our first ob appt with angel baby#2 so I tried to be kind to myself. I think it worked. Tonight we are going to fish fry at lake by our house and tomorrow doing easter stuff with dd and church and then Sunday family easter. So looking forward to fun filled weekend and hopefully af in there somewhere :).

Will be checking for update Shanessa!!

Hey there chicas! Part 10 now, eh? Whoa we are some jabber jaws! lol. I haven't been around much b/c of my work schedule and... my dating life!!! yup! I ACTUALLY can say I have a boyfriend now!! This is such a foreign thing to me! I revel in the feeling, but I also just don't know what to do b/c I actually think I found someone decent, sweet and loving- who just also happens to be into me!!! :-). I will admit that we met thru online dating site, but he is SO not like the scum I encountered on there...siiigh... He is a smidge older than me, divorced with a teenage daughter, but he says he is willing and wants to try with me if it is a go with my body...wow! where DID this guy come from???? He is not an Adonis, but then nor am I a Venus Rising! lol But his smile warms my heart, his beautiful hazel eyes look at me in a way that makes me feel beautiful and he has a warm and generous heart and spirit...he has a decent job, intelligent, goofy sense of humor, owns his house and ...he can bake!! lol he made me a from-scratch chocolate cream pie!! :-)

I was soooo happy to see AF today (even a day early) in light of how wonderful things are going with the new guy. I was nervous since the guy formerly known as "SG" and I had dtd during my alleged fertile window that one time...I was disappointed in how he turned out, but now with this new guy seemingly falling from the sky and offering the full-on relationship, I ain't complaining!!

So...I will keep up with the ubiquinol, melatonin, etc, whilst enjoying the glow of these wonderful feelings of hope, love and peace of mind in knowing I have someone who wants to be with me through everything and will hold my hand, kiss my cheek or hold me close...just cuz I'm me... I sooo hope I can have a baby with him...

I am sorry for this self-centered entry once again, but please know I do wish you all the best and will keep reading and hopin for the best- maybe I will have something to share of a more TTC nature some day soon! ;-). Ray, Shanessa, Maxx, Tiff and Second- Thx for your support and kindness! Shanessa, look forward to stories about our latest "CYCLING ON" baby! :-)

Ok ladies. I need help. Bfn two days ago at 13dpo. AF always comes on day 14. As of now, late on 15dpo, no AF. Tiny bit of blood on tp this morning then nothing. Yeast infection rages on despite 2 doses of diflucan. Any clue? Is this an age/perimenopause thing?

Happy Easter everybody! I'm back. It was ok. I spent the first few days super anxious and I missed my twins. Not anxious about them but anxious about everything. I'm glad to be home. I quickly read through everyone's posts. Shanessa congrats and that's amazing. Hi to everyone else. I did Clomid again this cycle. I have 2 more pills to take (AF came last Sunday). Where's my bump buddy TTC?!

Shanessa - :hb: I am so happy to hear about the heartbeat!!!! :hb:

Stat - I am glad you got your wish with AF and it is wonderful to hear about your new guy!!

Momoftreasures - I don't know what to tell you, but I am living that misery with you at 15dpo with no AF. I hope that your infection is starting to clear up. :Hugs:

Max - I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your trip and you are now back home with your little ones!

Tiff - I hope AF arrived as you wished this weekend, so you can move on! How is the training going?

Second - I sure hope you are feeling better and that the whole weekend was not lost to illness!

Hello EOE :D !

Warning Alert! The rest of this posting today is made by a clearly distressed and irrational woman.

AFM – 15DPO today and I am in such misery today. I have had 3 straight days of BFN’s and yet, AF has not arrived. No sign of spotting, no sign of AF other than the extreme irritability and emotional duress. My temperature is still very high for me at 98.54. It usually drops for a few days and should be close to 97.9 by the time AF arrives. I stopped taking the progesterone on Friday when I got the first BFN, so there is no way the progesterone is keeping my temps high falsely or that it could be the cause for AF’s late arrival. I assume that I have little hope for a BFP at this point, since there was not even the suggestion of a line with yesterday’s test. So why won’t AF arrive and put me out of my misery??? Emotionally, I am losing it.

We had such a lovely day with the family over, but by the end of the night I was in tears. I love my DSIL so much, but it is so difficult to hear the talk about the baby when I can’t get pregnant. I feel selfish for my struggles to be happy for them. They have struggled for years to stay pregnant with #4 and I know that I should be happy for them. Instead, I am miserable, sad, lost and tired. Somewhere along the way this cycle, I have lost faith. I’ve lost faith that I can still get pregnant, I’ve lost faith that I will recover from my inability to get pregnant and I’ve lost faith that God even remembers or cares that I am here. In the depths of my despair, I feel forgotten and without hope. No BFP and no AF and to top it off, I turn 44 in 7 days. Dear God, please bring me peace.

stat, awe...love your story! You deserve this sweetie...so glad it all worked out. And, yes His plan is greater then ours. Continue in your bliss and you may get a surprise bfp anyway...better update us if you do.

momoftreasures, maybe the yeast infection is making af late..I have no idea I am just trying to help you figure it out and I got nothing..I am sorry.

Ray, my heart is heavy for you dear. I am SO so sorry for all of your feelings. I understand where you are and i hate where you are. It is VERY very hard to be happy for someone else when you know your heart is breaking inside. Hell, I can't even see my gf who is pregnant..I am avoiding her at all costs..it is terrible and I am sure making me a bad friend..but it is keeping me sane for the little time that I am sane.
I too konw how you feel about the God "not knowing you are there" ....we have all been there..we know in our brains that it is not true but our hearts sure don't feel that way or maybe our feelings are so harmed that we can't listen to our hearts or our brains. I do hope you understand I am just trying to empathisize with you because I get it. I left church yesterday...and I told dh, "you know I am either still numb or angry or something because I refuse to get close to God, ask for help, or communicate much with Him at this point". I am just so tired of the hurt, unanswered prayer or the pain that comes with the prayer answered in a different way (i.e. mc). So, I get it :(. It is not a good place to be and I do hope you and I both find a way out. UGH. I am sorry. Wish I had words of wisdom or support..all I can do at this point is empathisize and say I understand and am so sorry. One of the other girls will have those words that I don't. Hugs and prayers to you.

afm..I think there is something in the air..no af here either :(. DAMMIT!!! I really wanted that for an Easter present. But, nope got screwed again. Had a neg opk on Sat (took it because we had sex) and it was so so light; so def no chance for a bfp either. Just waiting impatiently on af. I have freaking acne on my face like a little 12year old because I had a facial last week and ate so much Easter crap this weekend and it is Monday...YAY...gosh all my positivity is gone..sorry :(.
Here I am cd30 with no af and no pos OPK this cycle. Does anyone know if you have an anovulatory cycle if that screws up your next cycle???

Ray - I'm hating away for you at the moment. Damn fertile 18 yo. I can't see my pregnant friend these days either. I really feel for you and have been there. Not hating God but feeling hopeless and out of control.
Tiff - this is your first period after the mc? It can take 6-8 weeks to get AF back.
