Hi Ladies,

Beecee: Thanks for the support :) How have you been going? When do you expect O?

Shanay: How are you going? AF left yet? When are you expecting O?

AFM: 10 dpo today and temp dropped to 36.30 this morning. Was below 0 degrees here last night. Took my temp again right after and I got 36.42 but I'll stick to the original number. Had to take OH to work this morning. Got up and had to pee. But really wanted to hold it till later so I could pee on a stick :P . Well ended up saying screw it but grabbed a FRER before I went and said I'd just take it in the car and check it when I got to his work which is 15 min away. Well got to his work and BFP. I couldn't believe it. Didn't get my BFP with Ariah until 12 dpo. Posted it on my TTC facebook group and everyone said it was an indent as FRER were bad for indents now or that it was an evap as it had been 15 min since I checked . Out of time frame :( So held for 2 hours and did another FRER and one of my ICs. BFP in the time frame on Both :D So went to get my blood draw off doctor. She told me not to get my hopes up and that 1 in 3 early pregnacies end in MC. So I'm trying not to get my hopes up and praying for a sticky bean :D I decided to get a Clear blue digital and a Clear blue line test just to confirm. BFP all the way around :D Now just waiting for HSG blood results. Just hoping the drop in temp doesn't indicate something bad. I'll be heart broken if I have 2 in a row :( Wish me :babydustb: and :sticky:

2 days ago I had a dream I had a little boy. So I'm hoping this is a good sign <3

Ahhhhh!!! Omg! Congratulations!!! Frers have indeed been having indents, but they don't look anything like that. That's a GREAT line for this early. I can't believe your doctor pointed out mc rates... Like why is that necessary? You're already going to be worried, no need to bring it up when there's no indication this one won't stick. If for some reason it happens, I've been through 2 in a row. It sucks BIG TIME, but you get through it. Like I said, though, that is a fantastic line for that early and I think it's a great way to start. I hope this is your rainbow settling in for good!

I'm not sure when I'll O. I'm on CD 12 today, opks are still really light. (Last cycle I got my positive opk on cd 12, the one before, CD 16.) I found the teeniest, tiniest bit of ewcm up near my cervix yesterday, but I haven't seen any more, so I assume it will be several more days before I O. Letrozole doesn't dry up cm for *most* people like clomid often does, but unfortunately I've noticed a decline with mine. It's frustrating to me because I know I need the letrozole to even have a chance of having a baby stick, but fertile cm is also necessary to get the sperm where they need to be. Preseed gives me yeast infections (EVERY time I use it!) so that leaves me thinking we may have to do IUI to actually get the sperm to the healthy egg. That makes me want to do it this cycle, but i told hubby we'd give it one or two more months so I'm trying my best to be patient. Hopefully I'll see some good ewcm in a few days.

Hi Ladies,

BeeCee: Thank you so much :) Yeah I'm not sure why she pointed that out. But as it stands I'm 13dpo and everything seems to be going well. I'm looking for a new dr atm as she transfered to another clinic. I'm really hoping for a sticky bean. Looks good so far :) Have you O'd yet? How are you going with the bedding? EWCM is a good sign. But it sucks to hear that you have decreased in it due to the medication. Have you asked your dr about it? Have you had anymore EWCM or signs of O? how many more cycles do you think you will do before going to IUI? I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for you :) :babydustg: and :sticky:

Shanay: How have you been going? Have you O'd yet or has AF left? and your still NTNP or are you planing to start actively trying? Keep us updating fingers crossed :sticky: and babydustb: to you :)

AFM: 13dpo. Had my Bloods taken at 10 dpo same day as I got my BFP and my HCG was 15. Getting my levels checked again today to confirm doubling. To say I'm scared is an understatment. With my previous MC I had my levels check and first hcg was 66 a week later it was 86. Next day I had the MC :( So levels were not doubling properly :cry: So its been 3 days or 72 hours since I had them check so they should have increased fingers crossed for me :mrgreen: I'll keep you posted on it :D Been taking progression tests. FRER are from 10, 11 and 12 dpo and Lullaby Conceptions are 10, 11, 12 and 13 dpo. So the lines look like they are going good. I stopped taking my temp today. So last one was yesterday. Temp went to 36.57 on 11 dpo and 36.54 on 12 dpo so stopped testing so I don't stress myself out. Otherwise I'm doing good. No bleeding and everything looks like its going ok. My Dr transfered to a new practice this week (actually day I found out I was pregnant) So I'm hunting for a new Dr down here. I was considering using my works Dr but OH thinks it would cause to much issue between work and personal life. So I saw one yesterday. But I didn't particularly feel confident in him. So seeing another on Tuesday. Not sure If I will ask my dr on Monday about seeing her. As she is a fantastic Dr as that would require me telling her my entire medical history and dealing with everything else. I'll keep you posted. Otherwise all good. Here looking forward to reading your BFP successes soon xoxoxo

That progression looks great! I know first-hand the worry that comes with being pregnant after a loss, but just based on your tests, I would expect to see good numbers when they come in. :)

I got a positive-ish opk today lol. I say that because when I took one around 11 am, it was not immediately positive--in fact it didn't even look close. Then 30 minutes later, the test line was darker than the control. I took like 4 more throughout the day and they have all looked almost positive, but not quite. So it might be positive in a couple hours by bedtime, or it might be tomorrow, but I should O in the next few days.

I actually had the most ewcm I've ever seen in my life yesterday morning (the one day we didn't BD!) It was HANGING off the TP! There hasn't been a ton since then, but I'm hoping it's hanging out where it's needed.

As far as IUI goes, I think I'll be ready next cycle, but hubby is probably going to want to wait one more. To be honest, I was about ready to tell him I wanted to do it this cycle, but then I realized my positive opk was likely going to fall on a weekend which complicates getting in touch with my doctor in time. I told that to my hubby and he said maybe it's God's way of telling us we don't need to do that just yet! I think I'll be ready next cycle if this one doesn't work out, though. I'm getting really worn down with it all and I'm just ready to really do whatever we can.

Hi Ladies,

BeeCee: Thank you so much for the support I really appreciate it. Good to hear you had a positive OPK and heaps of EWCM that is always a great sign :) Did you get your bedding in? How many DPO are you now? When do you plan to test. Great to hear you have a plan for your IUI routine. Keep me posted. Looking forward to hearing from you :D

Shanay: How have you been going? what CD are you up to? Have you O'd yet? Keep us posted :D

AFM: I'm currently 6 weeks pregnant. Nausea is a constant friend. I have the dating scan booked in for 31st of Aug. So looking forward to that :mrgreen: But I'll admit fear is my constant friend as well. I find I'm constantly checking to see if I am bleeding. I've had cramps on my right side whenever I'm sitting down or have my legs curled up. I believe this is related to gas :oops: . Haven't vomited yet which is a plus. But has me concerned as I was vomiting already with Ariah. As for Ariah I'm a little concerned for her. She can say Mom, dad, buba, ya and she is very good at verbal communication (she grabs your hand and puts it on what she wants ie boobs LOL or under her arms to be picked up) But Ive noticed she only says mum now when she is upset and spends most of her time using non verbal communication or says dada de dada alot. She babbles a great deal and I know she can hear me. Is this normal for 15 months old? Also she has just started walking now. shes not so confident at it so she prefers to crawl. Advise people as my OH is making me worry LOL :P

CD 2 over here. :/ We're going to try one more month then IUI.

As for Aria, if she is healthy and happy, I wouldn't stress. I just took Henry to his 3 year appointment. He was an early talker and now at 3 has incredible verbal skills. His doctor said it's crazy to see the difference in kids because she would say he falls within normal range for a 3 year old, yet so does the kid who is just starting to put 3 word sentences together. Kids develop so differently and as they get bigger you can see that it's just their personality showing through in different ways. It's also totally normal for kids to not take their first steps until well after a year. My nephew started walking at 17 months. I also know a teeny tiny 9 month old that is already walking!

I think we get hung up on milestones because we get used to looking for them that first year to indicate healthy development, but after a year, kids often start specializing in certain skills. A child who walks or talks "late" perhaps likes to sit back and observe their surroundings. You may see that child become a really great listener or have a very laid back personally (this is the case with my nephew-- he's totally chill. It turns it he was just never in a hurry to get out and go. Then there's Henry who walked at a normal time around 12 months, but was talking by 11 months and he cannot sit still, talks 24/7, and needs constant interaction. They are all just so different, but it doesn't mean anything is wrong with them!

Hey. So happy to hear you out. I have been trying to conceive for quite a while after which I found out that I was infertile. reason? I have PCOS. I didn't even know. I was diagnosed late. This left me devastated. I have been sulking in bed for quite a while now. But my Dh has supported me a lot in this phase. He told me nobody could help me than myself. So I have decided to get up and go out looking for alternatives. I have heard about this clinic in Europe. I hope I find luck there. Prayers needed.

Hi Ladies,

Beecee: Thanks for the support i really appreciate it. Did AF show up yet? Are you planning to try IUI this month if so? How have you been going? Has the medication been helping your cycle? Keep me posted. I don't always have time to reply but I do check in :D Hope to hear from you soon. How has this cycle been? did you get your bedding in? What day did you O?

Shynay: How have you been going? Haven't heard from you in awhile. Keep us posted when you can. Where are you in your cycle now?

Barbara: I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis of PCOS. However, from my understanding many women that have PCOS can concieve. Just about learning your cycle and getting some help were needed. How long are your cycles normally? How long have you been TTC? What has your doctor said about your diagnosis? There is definatly help out there for PCOS. Keep us posted. Glad to hear your OH is so supportive :D

AFM: I'm 10 weeks tomorrow. Got my scan done on the 31/08. Baby measured bit bigger than I though it would. Only 2 days though :P. Saw the heart beat which was a big relief. Although I'll be honest I haven't been doing so bad in pregnacy symptoms this time around. I've Only vomited twice. With Ariah I was sick every day. This baby hates Sugar. I eat any lollies and I feel so sick. But it loves fruit. So I've been eating heaps of Strawberries and Apples. This baby also doesn't like room temperature water. So Ive been drinking ice cold water and soft drink as the bubble help settle my stomach lol. I'm also really fatigued where with Ariah I was fine. Still got a pregnacy temper on me so feel bad for OH LOL :P Otherwise me and Ariah and Mathew are doing good. Not particularly loving Melbourne but thats probably because the weather is bipolar and I don't really know anyone. It also presents the problem of delivery. Mathew finishes training down here on the 5th April and I'm due on the 13th April. And I went 2 weeks early with Ariah. So I have the option of trying to drive from Melbourne to where ever we are posted before baby comes and possibly going into labour on the trip. Or I can have the baby down here but someone will have to come stay down here for 2 weeks before bubs is due as I need someone to look after Ariah incase i have to go for another C Section. Also struggling to think of names for this baby can't find any I love. With Ariah I loved her name the moment I heard it.
Speaking of Ariah she is doing well. Walking everywhere and talking alot more. She now says Dad, Mum, Baba (baby), Ya (yes) and Doddy (Dog). We have been having a problem with a chronic cough with her and after months of investigation turns out she has a collapsed lower right lung. So we see a respiritory team next month. Nothing to be overly worried about it. They believe she was probably born with it not being inflated. They think the diaphragm isn't pulling it down properly. So probably a monitor thing and the muscle eventually gets stronger over time. Also have a hearing test today as they think she has mucus blocking her ears and its causeing mild hearing issues. I'll keep you posted

Shia, it's great to hear from you! I'm so glad you're all doing well, including the new little peanut. I hope Ariah's appointments go well and that she's in good health.

I'm 7 dpo. No IUI this cycle, but we got good BD's in, including a new thing we tried-- twice within an hour-- as there was a study that showed a 20% (Yes TWENTY PERCENT) increased chance of pregnancy in those who used a second sample retrieved within an hour of the first for IUI's. We figured it was worth a try, so we did that the day before O.

I felt weirdly optimistic this cycle for most of it, but now I'm not feeling as confident. I guess maybe because I don't have any symptoms? Or nothing I haven't had on bfn cycles anyway. We'll see... If this cycle is a bust, we'll be moving on to IUI next cycle.
