    Status (WTO/TWW/Benched/in process of testing or treatment): TWW

    CD, CD/DPO (if applicable): CD25, maybe 10DPO

    What are you doing this cycle? (Testing? Treatment? Vitamins/supplements?):
    Prenatals, CoQ10, Vitamin D

    Rants/Raves:
    O day was very unclear this cycle. I finally logged my "slightly less negative" OPK in FF as a positive, and then it said I ovulated Fri the 12th, which mostly fits with my other signs and temp rise. If it wasn't then, I think it was Sunday the 14th (which FF didn't register). So I'm on high alert as to when AF might start, Thurs or Sat, most likely.

    Also had our introductory meeting with the RE. She felt my luteal phase might be a problem, I guess because even though it's 12 days I've started spotting a day or two before. So of course after AF I'll need to call to get my Day 3 testing scheduled. Or by a miracle maybe I'm KU this cycle, but I doubt it!

    ETA: Oh, and a RAVE to follow-up on the last check-in! I don't have breast cancer! :smiley: Apparently they're not even cysts; just lumpy breast tissue. U/S only; I didn't get the mammogram due to being in TWW (would've scheduled everything for after anticipated AF if I'd known that was a concern) and am supposed to go back after AF for that. But I'm relieved either way.

    Questions for the group:
    Any suggestions for supporting hubby with his SA? (Tues the 30th.) He's pretty private with this stuff and not looking forward to his "special time" with the collection cup. 

    GTKY:  What are your Halloween plans?  None, really! Our dog barks a lot whenever the doorbell rings, so we'll just stick a bowl of candy out on the porch and call it good.

    Soooo on Wednesday, 12DPO, I got a positive on a FRER. Called the RE's office; they had me come in that afternoon for blood tests. Called me yesterday to say pregnancy is confirmed, and TSH and progesterone levels look good. I'm going back this morning for more bloodwork to confirm hCG is doubling as expected.

    Both nurses who've talked to me say my husband and I have made it look easy, LOL. I didn't even have the opportunity to go in for day 3 bloodwork, and the office said it was fine to cancel Husband's SA. 

    I'm cautiously optimistic, since I know chances for m/c this early into pregnancy remains pretty high--technically, today is the first day of my missed period. So if folks don't mind, I may lurk here till the week 6(ish) U/S.
