Re: Weekly check in March 17

  • Jen from Oregon

    TTC#1 since Nov 2015

    prenatals, avoiding coffee, too busy to do much else this month! 

    On CD22, somewhere between 7 and 9 DPO. Won't test until CD32 (unless AF shows of course)

    this is cycle was all about buying and selling houses and not really about baby making. We did get some sparce BD in, but I was sick during O week, so I wasn't really up for it much. I thought I would be more upset by a "lost month", but it was kind of nice to have it in the background and not really worry about it. 

    I worked on St Patrick's day. I thought we'd have a lot of drunk people/car accidents once the bars closed, but it was actually really quiet for the first time in weeks! 


    Me: 39 SO: 36

    Dx: low progesterone, possible DOR - officially "unexplained"

    TTC#1 since November 2015
    9/16/2016 IUI#1 - BFN
    10/12/2016 IUI#2 - BFN
    1/21/2017 Clomid/IUI#3 - BFN
    March 2017 IVF: BFP! (beta#1 191, beta#2 378!) - it's a boy! DS born 12/6/2017

    TTC #2 since July 2018
    May 2019 IVF #2: BFP! (beta#1 346, beta#2 646) - vanishing twin at 8 weeks. Baby B still going strong - due 2/8/20!

  • 1. thistle8677 in Oregon 

    2. TTC #5 (#1 for fiancé) since August 2014 (recurrent loss; unable to conceive in 13mo.)

    3. Prenatals, Vit. d, omega-3, coq10, magnesium/zinc/calcium, opk's, preseed, AIP diet, stretching/yoga.

    4. Cd16, 6dpo (ovulated very early this month)
    I'll probably start testing this weekend because I lack self control ;)

    5. Part of me has some hope that the AIP diet has increased our chances. 

    QOTW: We didn't celebrate this year, my man had a neurology appt and we found out we have another month or two of more appts and labs/procedures before we get a final diagnosis. I'll have to update soon. 

    Best of luck @PoeMasque!

  • Bayliegirl in California
    TTC #1 since sept 2014, one misscarrage at 11 weeks in December

    diagnosed with prolactinoma and started on bromocriotine last summer. also take prenatals and use OPKs

    Second cycle trying to conceive since loss. Only got to BD once after positive OPK bc husband was traveling. 10DPO and trying to be hopeful. Have been in a terrible mood all day, like worst PMS ever, probably not a good sign.

    We didn't do anything for St Patrick's day, it's all about March Madness here in my house. Go KU!

  • Welcome @BaylieGirl, I'm so very sorry for your loss.
    This is a wonderful and supportive board (just a little quiet as of late.)
    Best of luck to you, and be sure and post a separate introduction so the other ladies can welcome you as well :)
