  • Hello ladies!

    1. Your Name or Screen Name ( not full names)  and State you are from: Michelle or ashellypnut (pronounced "a-shelly-p-nut"

    2.   How long have you been TTC?  one year, with a BFP lasting only 3 months and a 3 month TTA period; since D&E it's been 5 months.

    3.  Where are you in your cycle? If in the 2ww  when will you test? ( Waiting to O, 2WW etc) I'm CD13 & FF seems to think that I O'd already and am DPO4 today however, I disagree. I've never O'd that early before and I just think that it gave me CHs so early because of my CM & elevated temps.

    4.  How do you feel about this cycle? (Are you hopeful, anxious... etc) Well, I was hopeful for this cycle to get underway and I'm just a bit thrown because of FF giving my CHs so soon. Mostly, I'm going to ignore FF and just continue to HIO EOD. If it turns out that I did indeed O early, so be it. I've found that I've gone from being overly obsessing to being Honey Badger! Yeah, I just don't give a shit right now.

    QOTW:
    What is your favorite Movie ( scary or not) to watch for Halloween? It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. I'm a huge sissy and HATE anything scary!

  • Ticker warning.

    @ashellypnut are you using OPKs at all? When I was TTC I was charting on FF and it marked that I O'd but it seemed really early to me. So I took the advice of the ladies on here and decided to use OPKs. I'm so glad I did because I had not in fact O'd yet and if the OPK had not given me a positive I would have missed my window. FF is wonderful but can be off at times if there is any ambiguity. I HIGHLY recommend OPK. Just a thought. Good luck!
    Me:41, DH:41 Positive for MTHFR mutations- one copy C677T, one copy A1298C. One daughter born on Thanksgiving in 2013. Six losses.

    2. How long have you been TTC? Too LONG. 3. Where are you in your cycle? If in the 2ww when will you test? ( Waiting to O, 2WW etc)
    Just had beta. BFN. Waiting for AF. Sorta felt this cycle was a bust. My cycle wasn't normal after m/c. It was only 24 days when I am always 27-28 days. Follicle growth was super fast.

    4. How do you feel about this cycle? (Are you hopeful, anxious... etc)
    This next next I hope will be better. After last m/c, I added a new supplement. We'll see......
    QOTW: What is your favorite Movie ( scary or not) to watch for Halloween?
    Don't have one. I have missed Halloween these last 3yrs because of work :( it's one of my favorite holidays. I still decorate though.

    Thanks for your input @ksgsmu! My loss was back in March and I've had 8 cycles since then. I usually O between CD 14-19 so CD9 is way early. We will see!

    Thanks for your advice @Guennie. Yes, I've been using Wondfos for several cycles now. In fact I used them 2x/daily with last cycle just to be sure I didn't miss my surge. I've read TCOYF, I chart my temps daily as well as my CM, and use OPKs. I take my prenatals at night and my synthesis in the am. I just don't know of any more I can do on my own. I glad my appt is tomorrow.

    2. Been TTC #2 since my m/c in March.
    3. Currently 1 day into my 2ww
    4. Honestly, I don't feel anything either way at this point. This is my second cycle this go round. I've gotten pregnant on my second cycle both times that I conceived via IUI, so I hang onto that little tidbit and tell myself that this cycle is it for me. I've had 6 IUIs in total counting this one.

    2. NTNP 8 years. Active trying for about 11 months with a MC in march.

    3. CD 1 with the most horrific cramps I have ever had... EVER!!!

    4. This is my last month trying. My cycles have been 24 days so I will most likely get 2 cycles this month so I have 2 more tries to get my third baby. I am not very hopeful since its been 7 months since my MC and no more BFPs. Just very sad because I want this baby so bad and I have to accept that It might not happen.

    5. We don't really watch tv so I don't have a favorite movie but I like the great pumpkin Charlie Brown from when I was a kid.

  • I'm back from my vacation! So I'm catching up here with all of you ladies. Hope you all had a great few weeks!

    2.  Officially a year now. 

    3.  Day 56 of this cycle. Obvi I didn't ovulate. Didn't want to take the provera because I was so worried what would happen if I were pregnant. Hindsight is 20/20.

    4.  Not at all hopeful. I POAS 2x and both BFNs. I'm sticking with my plan to continue to try but focus more on weight loss until the new year.


    QOTW:
    What is your favorite Movie ( scary or not) to watch for Halloween? Hocus Pocus! Love that it's on repeat on ABC Family!

    Meh.  We'll see.  I just feel weird.  My reaction to the drugs wasn't pleasant. My reaction to progesterone is making me beyond exhausted.  For some reason I'm less than hopeful for this cycle.  I usually like to try to hold on to something positive but I'm just feeling bleh about this cycle.

  • Hi, ladies!

    1. Rachel, CA.
    2. TTC#2 for a few months since m/c in June. Got to hand it to you ladies who've been trying for a long time. It's mentally and emotionally draining!
    3. CD31, but… 
    4. Don't feel pg. I sort of feel like I did when I was PG, but miscarried, so maybe I just don't want to get my hopes up.  I am also out of PG tests, and can't decide whether to buy one or a whole bunch of OPK/PG tests for the month(s) ahead. :)
