Moneri, have you tried anything to "encourage" conception via food or powder, or supplement? i.e pineapple core, maca powder, Vitex? Just wondering if anyone has their own regimen besides just prenatal and eating healthy.

The only thing I have done is change my diet to all grass-fed foods. I was naive and thought this would work the first go round. If this time doesn't work, then we have one more vial of sperm. After that we will have to reevaluate our plans. How are you doing??

I'm good, thanks! First beta today. Was only 53. I guess I thought it would be a lot higher? But they said 50 and over is good. So barely got the mark! They want me to come back in a week for a recheck. i was slightly confused, I thought people usually go back a couple days from the first draw... Anyway How are you Ms. 8dpo?? Youre over the half way mark! Yayyy!

From what I've seen in other posts, the only thing that really matters with the BETA is that it doubles. This TWW is going by so much faster this time so I'm sooooo greatful for that!! I've had some really sharp pains in my uterus/lower back/leg today. Don't know what that's about but I think I might POAS tomorrow morning.

Darn!!!! Was it a clear blue digital? The clear blue I took on day 10 was BFN. It wasn't until 11 it showed a positive. I'm Sorry Moneri! If it's a true BFN, will you jump in to next cycle? I'm still hoping you're not out of this round!

Found out today I'm miscarrying. Almost wish I never got that BFN. I feel heart broken. Hope your not giving up Moneri. I'm hoping to get back in the game once I pass this.

Oh no! A.E.S, I'm so sorry! I hope your body works with you through this process. Monica and I are trying again this month but I think it will be the last time this year. I really hope things work out for us this next time.

Hey A. E. S, it's been awhile since we chatted so I wanted to check-in and see how you're doing! Tomorrow is day 11 of my last try for this year. Im thinking about POAS but I'm terrified of getting another BFN!

Hi Moneri!! You're doing great holding out. You gonna wait for a blood draw? Any symptoms this go round? I'm excited for you!!! I bet it's so tempting to test. Really hoping this is it for you! Crossing my fingers tight for you.

I couldn't hold out any longer!! I had to test this morning. I definitely see two lines but I'm worried about it being a false positive. (Tried to attach the pic but it says the file is too big) I have had zero symptoms this time around until today. I've had some slight pinching in my uterus but that's it. I'll test again in a few days and hopefully that second line will keep getting darker!

OMG Moneri!!!!! This is awesome!! hahahaha congratulations girl!! today is day 12 for you, your chances for a false positive are so slim. Depends how much Ovidrel (assuming) you took. But even if you took 10,000 IU which seems to be the max, it would be out of your system within 10 days. You're pregnant woman!! So happy for you :D

I'm so excited!!! My test this morning was darker for sure!! I can't go until next week for blood work because of issues with my new insurance so I think I will be super nervous until then. Lol
