:) I believe you will reach your goal!! Any lose will help tcc and long term health. Keep up the good work!!

My lp is usually 14 days, but it varies a bit. If no positive by feb 6, I know I'm out. Progesterone is driving me crazy...hungry, headaches, bloat. Work is nutty busy this week too :(

Thanks for the positive words! :)

Sorry you are having a hard time at the moment! I presume that progesterone is what keeps :af: away? So the minute you stop taking it she might come? So i guess my question is, if your LP is a normal length between 11-14 days, why did your RE put you on progesterone? Does it help other hormones too? Sorry for so many questions! Just curious!! 8)

Anyway, Happy friday!! :jump: Wish me luck for my weigh in tomorrow!! :shock:

:jump: :jump: :jump: for your weigh in!!!

my progesterone has typically been low when we have tested it (cd21 and during chemical and m/c), and my understanding is that the progesterone is what helps the uterus be ready to hold and support the egg.

have a good weekend!! gonna relax!!

:cry: Boo for :bfn:

Well, still way too early to tell hun, you have loads of time still! How long is your LP normally? At 8dpo its possible you haven't even implanted yet... don't give up till the red lady sings! 8)

Wow, excellent weight loss! That's fantastic! I think we are now on the same weight loss, I am sure my hubby worked mine out on Sunday to be 28lbs too which sounds much better than 13kg! :jump: YAY for weight loss!! :mrgreen:

How much have you still got to go??

My week is okay at the moment, no great shakes to be honest, nothing interesting to report at all... waiting to O is the most boring thing in the world!! LOL!

Keep your chin up and keep testing!! :D

Hey, how was your movie?

No, didn't BD this weekend, so annoyed! Tested friday and it was quite light, so tested again Sunday, much darker but not fully + and plus i had a tummy bug on Sunday so we decided to not BD until today, tested this morning and it is even lighter now, which tells me that i am probably going to O today. :(

Will BD tonight and hope to get a seat on this months bus!!

Boo for your BFN!! :x Sorry about that, what was the result this morning then?? :fingers crossed:

BFN this morning :cry:

maybe you will catch the egg tonight!! :)

the movie was good!! we all enjoyed it....scary!!

we decided that we will purchase one more batch of meds, which may last two cycles. with my new insurance, we are paying full price for everything. then we may be done with medicated cycles :( i am not ready to accept that but at some point we have to say we are done. we have done 8 medicated cycles, with one chemical. we had one natural BFP that ended in m/c. we would continue trying naturally though. i can't imagine what life will be like without another child!?!?

i am planning to take some time off from TWW, to focus on myself, relaxation, self-care, distraction, and enjoying my family. i would love to keep in touch regarding the weight loss, and certainly don't mind updates on your fertility journey. but i am going to work on not obsessing, not testing, and just focus on enjoying life. if you want i can PM you my email. otherwise i may pop on here occassionally, but not regularly.

Stupid :bfn: :hugs:

I am sure you are feeling like you have had enough of medicated cycles, i can completely understand that and nothing makes more sense than to take a TWW break and relax and focus on yourself, your family and try things naturally. The good old saying is that it will happen when you least expect it. So by all means, PM me your email address and i will keep you posted with some updates here and there - i won't bombard you with emails because i know what it's like when you try and escape the madness of TTC.

I hope you get your BFP naturally and that you have the other child you so badly want. :D

Look after yourself Ali and let's keep in touch!!
