  • @beckylookatherbump haha yes, they are, but I'm not sure I would call this one a vivid dream. But who knows! I also had a bit of insomnia from 2-3am and insomnia could be a pregnancy symptom too  :D  Literally ANYTHING could be! haha

  • @ssbl I also had talked with my OB during my yearly exam as that was right around month 10. I mentioned it to him just as a concern wondering if we would need to go the route of an RE and so we started off with checking my progesterone to confirm I'm ovulating, then did and HSG and DH an SA. From there we got referred to a urologist to check DH as my OB thought his count was off like he didn't get the full sample in the cup (it was in the range of normal but towards the low end). From there we got referred to the RE and when I called to make an appointment we couldn't get in until a month later.

    I definitely think it's worth starting to think about it because it could be a while before you can get an appointment with an RE but it depends on the practice if they are busy or not.

  • Month/Cycle: active for 4 cycles

    CD/DPO:  24, 3

    Timing: hit it perfectly!

    Typical LP length: Varies, last was only 10 days 

    Testing: I want to try my best to wait until the 15th because I’ll be 12DPO not 10 and I don’t want to disappoint myself getting at 10 and it being negative but possibly positive and then drive myself nuts lol 

    R/R: My PREmom app inserted in my cover line for me from my BBT data and it’s looking like I deff ovulated which makes me very happy! However I am at work today so I’m going to ghost after posting this for a bit but hoping to respond to yall later today!

  • @dawn_tay glad you’re feeling great about your timing! I think it’s smart to hold out to at least 12 DPO!!

  • Month/Cycle: 11/1AL

    CD/DPO: 26/not sure

    Timing: eh

    Typical LP length: 12-14 days

    Testing: BFN with FRER today

    R/R: who else loves a good cathartic clean out? We cleaned our shared space outside our classrooms today and it felt so freeing now I want to clean out my home, my car, everything!

    CS/Q: this morning, I felt this really bizarre sensation right below my belly button. I thought it was my shirt pushing against my skin. I adjusted my shirt but I kept getting this feeling almost like something was pulling down on my belly button. I've felt it several times throughout the day so I couldn't help but go to Dr. Google. Which got my hopes up. Tested this evening and got a BFN. Sooooo, I think I'm probably out, but I hate all this stuff that gives me false hope. Ugh.

  • @ssbl After I read Taking Charge of Your Fertility I made an appointment with my OB (who also sees infertility patients as there is no RE in my area) to do initial testing. I think the recommendation in the book is 6 months if you are tracking to confirm ovulation and have good timing. We had been trying about 9 months when we started testing. Our recent results came back mostly within normal ranges (low end of normal on SA) so we are waiting a couple months to pursue any treatment.

  • @ssbl if you are already talking about it just get the testing done! It will ease your mind. It is a stress in itself but hey atleast you may have some answers!

    @kpearse99 fingers crossed! Keep us all posted on the 11th!

     @beckylookatherbump I am trying to wait until the 15th to test! We can be waiting buddies and hopefully be able to share the good news together! 

    @keikilove love the positivity! Thanks for meditation share I’m deff going to look into that!

    @kpearse99 I couldnt get back on TB today after all until late. But basically, my rants are because my work travel was advertised as 25% of the job before I accepted it, and now that I’m in it it’s actually more like 50% travel. Each trip is anywhere between 4,000-5,000 miles each way. Brutal on the body. Miraculously, it’s only interfered w fertile week one time,bwhen I got home on O day. And that was a cycle where was doubting all my meds anyway and took a breather. Hopefully I won’t have to worry about timing soon enough! Also, my first beta is the day after yours. We are both soooooo close! Wishing everything good for you too!
