Hi Tammylyn, have a great weekend away. We are off to West Wales for kayak lessons. Should be fun. We only BDed on Sunday and Tuesday, CD12 and CD14 also and my temp rise was on CD16, although my thermometer is a bit crap. So our cycles appear identical this months, lets hope for double BFP's in a fortnight.
TTC since Oct 12

BFP - Feb 2014, Natural MC 18 March, 8 weeks, 4 days.

BFP - June 2014
US - 18.7.14 - baby measuring 8+1. Strong, clear heartbeat.

Yay! People you're all still here!

Mountain- enjoy the kayaking! I'm in uk too (Cambridge area). We did bd around +opk time. All sessions were DH putting his stuff in the softcup. He was just too tired to DTD. We'll try again tonight but my temp has risen so it looks like I o'd already but we'll do it just in case.

Tammyl- so jealous of the waterpark! You enjoy yourself and gave a lovely time.

Hi to EOE and will catch you guys later!

Hi ladies, hope all is well for everyone. Havent been seeing posts. Did we move? Any BFN news?

AFM, what I thought was possible implantation, turned out to be PMS like I have never felt before :(.... AF came fast and furious on Friday. After only 25 days. I think my cycle is getting back closer to what normal was. Somewhat disappointed. Gotta keep trying though.

Hello, I hope everyone is having a good weekend. CD27 for me. I've had some cramping on and off the past few days. I'm glad for AF to hold off for a couple days though. She came on CD 25 and 26 the past two months and I was concerned about my cycle being too short for everything to happen properly. I'm thinking I'll test on Tursday if nothing by then, but I'm afraid to get too hopeful.

Hi everyone, just checking in. It's been crazy the past week. So much going on. My mom is in town and last night we went to go see The Long Island Medium, Theresa Caputo. Not sure if any of you have heard of her (and if you have, you may think I'm crazy for seeing her). It was a very interesting experience. She did not talk to us personally, but what she did say to others was just incredible.

Alibaby, sorry about AF. :-( I really hope we get some BFPs this month. I'd like to hear from those who got their BFPs to see how they are doing. As for me, I'm on CD 9 so not much to tell. Just going to start the every other night BDing. Baby dust to everyone!

Lms - me too - I'm going to test on Thurs too.

Alibaby - aww sorry about AF. I'm just so numb to AF showing now - feel like this is never going to happen for us.

Becca - Have not heard of her but glad you had a good time. I'd like to hear from the BFP'ers too. I lurked enough on the last thread and feel I kinda know them.

AFM, 5dpo today. Cranky and feel PMS'y for some reason. :|

Hi Ladies,

Baby dreams, your chart is looking good :wink: any other symptoms?

LMS, how about you, testing soon?? FX for you!!

Becca, OMG I love the Long Island Medium :) How fun!

Ali, so sorry for AF :hugs: I hope your cycle is returning to normal and a good old fashion BFP is on the way soon!

Hi Nikki!

Mountainbaby, how is your cycle going this month?

Clementine, I pray all is well with you!

EOE: Lots of Blessings and Baby Dust your way!

AFM: Went to my OB yesterday and he did a scan and he couldn't find a cyst on my left ovary but saw some follies and found a cyst on my rt ovary but it looked like it was collapsed and saw something in my uterus, called it possibly some fluid? so he is sending me to the hosp for a complete ultrasound to see what is up and then I am getting my CD3 hormones check next AF. SO no more SOY for me until after bloodwork and no clomid until I am cyst free, sighhh so I wait some more.

And then this morning finally 98.04!! I have never been so happy to see a high temp, I haven' had one since July 3rd !! So something is working finally, just don't know when O day was so looks like I will be going thru a lot of HPT's as long as my temps stay up!

I found this intersting piece of an article, I hope that's what he was seeing on my right side

"This cyst continues to get larger until it reaches 2 to 4cm in diameter, then it typically bursts ("ovulation"). After ovulation, the cyst partially collapses and produces progesterone for the last 2 weeks for the cycle. This collapsed cyst is called a "corpus luteal cyst". Sometimes the cyst can bleed into itself and form a small clot after ovulation, that slowly resolves. This is called a "hemorrhagic cyst".

So truly "the ovaries make cysts for a living".

:shock: so now I am wondering if I O'd late or if I did O on cd11 then I am going thru implantation right now, from the look of yesterdays scan it seemed like I already did O as the cyst was already partially collapsed and the follies on the other side so I am just praying and hoping. I'm not as stressed today as I know if AF comes then I can get some more testing done and i have an infertility work up for both me and DH and Sept 24th so I know help is coming :)

Hi Ladies, thanks for all the support. Boy I hope one of us get some good news soon!!!!!

LMS, what are your cycles normally?

Tammy/Babydreams fx for implantation.

Becca, sounds like your having a good visit with mom. Didnt that medium have a show on tv? I get weirded out by people like that. Always afraid they are going to give me bad news.

Saw OB/GYN today. Initially, I was planning on holding off on meds this month, but after talking to him decided to push ahead.He feels hopeful that I am ovulating because my cycle went from 35 days to 26. I would like for it to go to 28 or 30. AF is coming to soon. DH is being so supportive. We have decided to go on a diet together at the end of the month (I have to wrap my head around it, lol) in hopes this will help the babymaking. We are both at our heaviest and have found that we definitely live to eat. I love to eat, but I need to seriously modify my intake and cut out the snacks :( Anyway, it would be nice to lose some weight before we go to New Orleans for our anniversary.

How are all the expectant mommies? Lets get some more BFP's please!!!!!!

Hey ladies. How are we all?

Tammylyn - Hmm very interesting about the scan - great news on the follies and am curious to know what the fluidy thing is. Yay for the higher temp too, Im so glad you have o'd and happy for you that if you do not get your BFP this month that you have good things coming and an investigation going on and that help is coming! Of course I hope you will have no need to get all of that testing done and you have your BFP. :D

Alibaby - diet and weight loss is what my Doc ordered me to do also and I'm glad I have finally got my head around that. He also told me something interesting too about fitness and weight. He said that it is not necessarily so important to focus on the weight but to focus more on the fitness and suggested bouts of interval training where you get your heart rate up and then bring it down and then get it back up again. So I have started some hi/lo aerobics in my lounge room - it's bloody hard when you are my size but I know I have to do it - not just for ttc sake but for my health too. just wanted to share that little nugget of info with you all. I'm like you - I love food, love cooking it and eating it but i know that I am going to have to modify some of my recipes!

Fittblonde - Aww how beautiful is your little Chloe Ann? Precious! Glad you are back on the ttc train again and looking at your number of posts I think you know a thing or two and am looking forward to gleaning some information from you about this whole journey.

EOE - :hi:

AFM, well I'm 7dpo and hopefully my Wondofs will be here today - just need to pee on something lol! I'll post a pic if I see anything but I know I know - I'm early and should not be doing this now but it is the serial pee-er in me that has to do this lol.

Stalking you all!

Baby....thanks for the welcome back. Unfortunately, I do know way too much about this process. Depressing. Ahhh it's NEVER too early to pee :). Love seeing positive sticks. It's just one cycle closer to that bfp!

Fittblonde - Don't know if you remember me or not but congratulations, your little one is gorgeous! :-)

Feel a little odd dropping back on here, haven't been on for a long time now, but when I decided to take a peek I saw a familiar name from when I was last TTC (before our miracle June 2012). I am now 46 (was just a month into being 45 when our little guy was born). He was a natural conception after several M/C and a second trimester delivery. I am currently 7 weeks pregnant, but started spotting lightly 2 days ago so I am pretty sure it is a no go again :-( Got my first PPAF at 10 1/2 months and was so happy when we got a positive hpt on only my 3rd cycle. I know at 46 the odds are so very slim, but I would so love our little boy to have a brother or sister. Here is a recent photo of our miracle!

Wishing everyone best of luck...and I expect to be back on here soon.
