  • Slgill from KS

    TTC #2 since August (some months were very inconsistent)

    My doctor upped my dosage of Metformin, just using a fertility app and ovulation kits

    Undecided - we did manage to try but it was a day after my actual ovulation date. 

    I am in the 2WW now which started just this past weekend. 

    Some of my favorite things about spring is warmer weather, longer days, and bbqs,

    TTC #1 on and off since 9/2014

    I'm currently CD 9.  I've started the RE process, so just going in when they tell me to for various things.  I'm assuming I can still TTC this month...I forgot to ask and they didn't say not to.  I'll have to use OPK for this process so we shall see...they have always tested positive in the past no matter when I use them.  I bought the ultra fancy one with the "high" level and then the "peak" level detection.  Maybe that will help.

    I'm not sure what I feel this month due to the testing.  So far the HSG results were good, everything looks good they said.  I don't know what all of the results of the blood work mean but I have access to them through the web portal they use.  I'm guilty of googling some results but decided to stop as I need to just wait to see what the doc says about everything on 4/21.  To me the only thing that looked "off" was a higher LH than the range they provided.  I think H and I are hopeful that we started all of this testing and we will magically get pregnant this month and not have to worry about possible treatment options.

    I love spring for the fact that I can put my winter coat away and enjoy the fresh new green of everything, and I start to want to do more/get out more.  We've been in our new house for almost a year now and I'm looking forward to doing more things with the yard this year...it's pretty much a blank canvas at this point.

     2. How long have you been TTC? Are you TTC #1,#2,#3, etc.? Been actively TTC for 4 months, we already have 1 son who's 6

     3. What are you doing this cycle? Are you seeking help with a fertility specialist (RE)? If so, what stage are you in? Charting/temping? Testing? Medicated cycles? IUI? IVF? DE?  - Started OPK's, and got a positive this morning. Just doing that with my chart and vitamins!

     4. Where are you in your cycle? (Waiting to O, 2WW etc) If in the 2ww when will you test?  CD 13, +OPK so getting ready to start the 2WW. I probably won't test until a couple days after AF was due as not to get any hopes up.

     5. How do you feel about this cycle? (Are you hopeful, anxious... etc) I feel really positive and hopeful. I know that my body is getting ready to do its thing, and DH' and I have been putting in our effort. So we just wait and see how it goes!

  • MntnGirl, CA

    TTC #1 ~1.5 yrs

    Prenatal, NAC, D3, DHA, DHEA, CoQ10, baby aspirin.
    RE prescriptions: levothyroxine, folate, BCP

    Waiting for schedule from RE for second ER cycle prior to FET. 

    Not looking forward to a second ER cycle (needles and bloatiness), but we do think it is the best option for us. I realized I wasn't taking the RE recommended dosage of DHEA for the last cycle so I increased it from 25 to 75 mg. I'm positive that's going to make a huge difference this next cycle. :)

    QOTW: Warmer winds, open windows, and the color green.

    prenatals and BD every other day

    CD10

    we are waiting on results from my SO's sperm analysis. i was supposed to have a HSG tomorrow, but my OB's office staff dropped the ball so we will have to wait another month for that. I decided to find a new OB, mostly for financial/insurance reasons, so will be meeting with them in a few days. Until then it's BD, BD, BD! 

    Spring always gives me garden fever! I can't wait to get the keys to our new house so I can get out there and plant flowers!!!

    2. TTC #5 (#1 for fiancé) trying for 20+ months (recurrent loss)

    3. Waiting for insurance cards and then gonna go see a naturopath and RE. 

    4. Currently I'm waiting for AF. She's 5 days late, had 2 faint BFP's followed by a BFN. Suspected chemical pg. 

    5. As of now I'm actually a little more hopeful than I've ever been...not for the next cycle necessarily, but for future cycles to come. We are closer than. We've ever been. 

    QOTW:
    FLOWERS!!!! Portland is a beautiful place in springtime, especially on days like today when the sky is blue and the sun is shining! It's 66 degrees out today and I've got the front door wide open. My man brought me a bouquet of lilies last night and the house smells so amazing because of them!
