Well Good Morning Girls

Well, new turn of events, apparently I am ovulating now I have been having pains off and on the last couple of days temp rise, sore bbs, and now another solid smiley yesterday!!! And this one makes sense, a few days of negatives, a few days of flashy smiles, and then the solid! SO i do believe the early + were a fluke either my body was trying to O and couldn't or the Soy thru it off, either way, I am going to discard them and go with the smileys now and got another BD in last night. That would also explain my small fluid in my uterus, apparently it's common during ovulation, who'd a thunk??? I am just going to breath now and try to relax during the TWW, cause I least I know if AF comes, I still have more tests to come 8)

Welcome to the new faces, I love that you are trying for you second lil one, gives me hope of having my first with DH at almost 41!

Alibaby, sounds like a wonderful plan you two have! FX it works, they say all your have to lose is like 15 lbs to make a difference with fertility! I keep telling my self that I need to get on that diet bandwagon too :)

Blessings to ALL!

Halifax...OMG It's so great to hear from you. Congratulations on your miracle little boy. He is absolutely adorable. Sorry to hear about your spotting but don't give up hope just yet. I know a lot of women who spot and bleed and go on to have normal pregnancies. I am hoping this is the case for you too. However I understand with all the miscarriages under your belt it's hard to be optimistic. I have been there myself too many times. You must of been absolutely thrilled to see that positive HPT!!! At least you know it's just a matter of finding that golden egg :). Welcome back and I hope this pregnancy is a success.

It's great to see everyone's updates. I'm not always good at posting, but I love to see what's up with everyone else and keep in touch with what's going on with this group. Good luck with the TWW tammylynn, I'm glad you got such a positive sign for O. And I'm right there with you all on the weight loss. I've been trying to work more walking and exercise into my daily life since I've been having a hard time making it to the gym.

Well, here's my update. CD 30 today. I usually have a 28 day cycle and O around day 13-15. The last two months my cycles were 26 and 25 days. I was really concerned about how short they were. I started cramping several days ago, and was sure AF was on her way. I was glad when my cycle went to 28 days. Then last night the cramps got worse like they always do when AF comes. But then this morning when I woke up I realized no AF. So I took a first responder test with FMU because I knew I would go crazy all day if I didn't. To my surprise, I got the faintest of faint pink lines. Part of me is a little excited, but mostly I'm just kind of holding my breath. I still have cramping and after 2 years of TTC it's hard to imagine a positive outcome. Also, I'm 47 now and even though other people in my family have had babies in their 40's, it makes me nervous. No coffee for me this morning though!

I'm trying to post a photo of the test so you folks can take a look and let me know what you think. It's a little hard to see in the picture and I had to zoom in to see it.

Thanks Becca and Tammylynn! Your words and sticky vibes made me cry (in a good way). I just edited my previous post to make the photo smaller because I realized it posted pretty huge.

Good morning. I'm really worried today. I've had cramping for the past week and today I started light bleeding. I saw my doctor yesterday and she is prescribing progesterone for me to start using today, but I'm a total wreck right now and worried i won't need it after all. I'm also going in for a blood test to check hcg levels. I'm about 17-18 DPO. I guess a positive test result is just one step along the TTC road. I know I'm not the first to deal with stuff like this. It's just so hard. I got used to AF and negative test results but this is a whole new stress. Thanks for letting me vent.

How's everyone else doing today?

Easier said than done but try not to worry too much. Cramping is totally normal. When I was pregnant with Chloe it would always freak me out.

Well, dang! That was short lived excitement. My hcg was only 4 this afternoon (which is basically negative) and I started bleeding heavier. So now I'm starting over again. I was a wreck today, but I'm beginning to recover.

I am just over 7 1/2 weeks today and my spotting has become light bleeding, guess I am no longer in limbo...and ironically I just got a call from midwife program for my first appt...I had so wanted a midwife before but the waitlist was always too long here where I live...might know I would get accepted this time and with such perfect timing. Xander is asleep in my arms, I feel sad, no two ways about it, but this loss truly is different than all my others.... as I look at him my heart is so full of love and gratitude for finally having luck in having him.

Lmswebnet - So sorry, even having hopes up briefly is still hard...along with my other losses I have had 2 chemicals, I remember the feeling.

Fittblonde- Hi again! So nice seeing you on here. Thanks for the wonderful wishes, but alas here we go again....way too many losses under my belt, and at 46 I know this could easily have been last chance...will keep trying though once we get past this. I am nothing if not persistent :)
