That looks amazing Clementine! I don't blame you, I'd be so anxious and wanting to see that progression myself. Love it!!!!!

Well, yesterday the cramps started and this morning I feel bloated and crampy as if AF is coming, yet I am not due for a week!!!! Ugh. :-(

That's such good news Clementine, will be stalking the updates.

Tammylyn, I think we are cycle buddies now. I am CD7 today and the witch is gone, so onto a new cycle.

Becca, let's hope its implantation.

Hi ladies. Welcome Ann Marie. Clementine, so glad your back and with what looks like good news!!!!! Dont let those specialists bring you down. They forget we are so anxious and just want to make a baby. I hope this is BFP for you!!!!!

How is everyone else? I just got back from vacation. We had a blast. Drank beer, ate great, didnt think about OPK's or temping. Also did not take any of the fertility meds after the bleeding last month. DH and I just enjoyed eachothers company. AF came early, after only 29 days, which was more like it for me. On CD 15, started having O pains last night, so we BD'd. Trying not to put to much pressure on DH or myself. We found a new home while on vacation, way cheaper than what we are paying now. It's beautiful and almost 100 years old. I'm so excited for the move.

Hoping for more BFP news........

Any more updates Clementine? How is everyone else doing?

Alibaby - sounds like you had a great vacation and enjoyed yourself! And finding a house on top of it...sounds like a dream! Good luck!!!!!

Frannie, how are your symptoms?

As for me, I've tested a couple times but both neg. However both were with mid-day U. The antibiotic I've been taking for the UTI is making me go once or twice at night, so either way I would probably get the same result. I believe today is 12 DPO. I will try again tomorrow and see. Just not feeling it this month. :|

Hi ladies - does anyone mind if I join? I've been stalking this thread for a while and figured why not join?

A bit about me, I'm 40 (41 in Nov) and I have three children already from my first marriage but that ended and I have been married for ten years in Oct to my my awesome husband. He had a vas reversal done in 2012 and even though his sperm count is okayish, no luck as yet. I'm overweight though and am dieting/working out as per doc advice as he said that this would help my chances of conception. We're ttc naturally because there is no money for IVF even though I would love to have it done.

I'm so encouraged by your stories and the BFP's on here.

:welcome: Welcome Baby Dreams! You are more than welcome to join us! This is a great group of women who support each other, and it's great to find others our age going through the same journey. I too am a bit overweight, so I am trying to focus more on working out and getting healthy along the way.

So I tested this morning (13 DPO) and BFN. Then the cramps started again. I think I'm out and AF is on it's way either Monday or Tuesday. Just feeling blah....

Welcome Baby Dreams!! We are right about the same age, I will be 41 in Dec and I also have 3 kids from my 1st marriage, and was VERY fertile back in the day!! I had a tubal reversal in Dec of 2012 and we have been trying for 7 months now with one pregnancy in late Feb but we lost it on March 11th and have been trying ever since. I am overweight myself and am going to start a weight loss program come Monday :) A Co worker of mine who will be 41 in Sept, is pregnant with an oops baby because she lost weight and it thru her meds off and bam, pregnant! They were in shock, she is due Jan 15th! It gives me hope!

Becca, Dang BFN :( grrrrr

Thanks ladies for the warm welcome.

Becca - sorry about the BFN. Hate seeing those and I've seen many lol. Hopefully AF will get the message and take a hike for nine months!

Tammylynn - aww sorry about your loss. I like the way you have got back on the ttc wagon though. Yay for your co-worker falling pg after losing weight - I've heard so many good stories about pg's after weight loss. Fx for us all!

I used to post in the "cycling on" board when it was atI t6 or 7 the last time I was here. I am certain you all have forgotten me, but I recognized max, tiff, second and ray... I have not had a chance to catch up, but please accept my hello to you all! :-). Are you all still on here? And of course hello to all the "new" (new to ME anyway, lol)
folks.

The last time I was here in March, I had just met the guy I thought was indeed "the one". Things have been somewhat touch and go (including the touching and placing of a diamond ring on my finger), and I just don't think I can go thru with a marriage with him after some of the words I have heard and behaviors I have witnessed on his side... sigh... Thing is... I'm 2 days late for AF right now, and I don't know if I should be excited or bummed! Would never be bummed about being preggo, no matter who was the sperm source.... I am gonna be bummed if this is the onset of menopause. :-( I AM 46 yo now, so it is a real concern I have. I supposedly OV'd on 7/20 according to My App, and we bd'ed the night before. I didn't get the "usual" sore bbs the week or so before AF was due, but didn't think too hard on that b/c that has been changing the last couple of months to where I only have sore bbs abt 3 days before AF shows. At about 8 dpo, I had brown discharge in my panties- nothing new there... Now, here is the strange part... bbs never fully became sore and on day she was due on 8/1, still really no sore bbs and just some brownish stuff on paper when I wiped...no blood flow start even now! I had a verrrry small amount of barely tan wet discharge on the pantyliner yesterday, but nothing else. I have dull, slight AF cramps off and on for past 3-4 days, and was roasting at work last night (but AC was not fully on), but still no change in bbs and no nausea, etc... I've been a ravenous beast (much to my weightwatcher points chagrin!) and I am going to sleep before 11pm these past few nights.

I am now about 14 dpo and AF has not ever been this overdue...in fact, she has been known to show up 3 days early in the past on occasion! Am I just getting old and facing menopause, or is there something going on much more exciting??? I know, I know...I should just buy an HPT, but I am afraid of the BFN!!! Anyone else have such a LACK of symptoms, but get a BFP??

Statham - sorry about AF. Bummer. Ugh ttc is so hard sometimes!

AFM, annoyed because the opks I ordered in the mail have not arrived. They were meant to be here on Friday. oooh I am going to be leaving some nasty feedback on e-bay for someone. I paid for same day postage, next day shipping. :roll: I normally o from CD17-21 depending on the circumstances so I am early.... but still -I like to be prepared!

How is everyone else doing? Should we start a new thread because we have gone way past 6 pages?

Question for you lovely ladies - Is it okay to take all of my vitamins at night? I find that if I take them in the morn, I get queasy.

Welcome back StathamLuvr! I'm sorry AF arrived, :-(

Babydreams, Hopefully your OPKs will arrive today. Keep us posted! And as for vitamins, I think it's ok to take them at night. I take mine in the morning because I take most of my other meds at night.

Well, AF arrived for me yesterday, as well. So not happy. But I expected it. Then this morning I was thinking about how I have not heard from the fertility clinic with the results from all of our blood work last month. Hmmmm, I guess I need to follow up. I think I will put off IUI for one more month. The summer is so hectic and I want to make sure nothing gets in our way when it's time.

I guess we need to start a new thread. I will go start it if that's ok with everyone. Hope everyone has a good week!
