Is it just me or do you also smell some BFPs brewing?

 

tonia - July 8

Yes! I do too! angela, your post made me LOL last night! : ) You are too cute! Guess what girls, my dr was off work yesterday and was not supposed to be back until Monday. Well she and I played phone tag on thursday after my u/s and were never able to talk, we just left messages....... well she called me last night from home! At like 8pm! She said I could call her at home if I need anything. Also, she said if I get a strong positive on an OPK this weekend to call her and we can go over to her office and do an u/s. She said my lining looked really good and so do my follies, all we need to worry about is getting enough sperm up there! I thought that was really over the top of her to call me from home on her long weekend! OH YEAH Angela, don't feel guilty about drinking while ttc, we all need to let loose and relax while ttc......there is nothing wrong with it! Anna, how the hec are you? Beks when are you testing? Hi Staci, Becca, TOGIRL, and babyfever! Oh yeah, i slept really late today too! like almost 2hours late, i had a really hard time falling asleep, but usually fall asleep anytime I WANT!

 

staci - July 8

Oh my gosh! you smell that too! lol! I am 3dpo according to FF. I really think I O'd more than one egg because i was still having so much pain on thursday...Anyway, how's that hang over?! So you should be starting af really soon! yayyyyy! I can't wait for you to get on with this next cycle because I know your'e going through hell! Well ladies, gotta go and get ready for a cook out! have a good day!

 

Becca - July 8

Wow, the smell is so strong you can smell it all the way out here in PA! Staci, more then one egg is great! The more eggs the more chances you have, right? I used my opk and the line is about 50% - definately darker than yesterday's line, so it looks like I'm getting close. Oh, and also, when I checked internally I had a lot more of the brown gook, so I guess for whatever reason my pre-O spotting is just dark brown instead of red. Maybe it's the same reason I have no ewcm. Whatever the reason, it's just weird. I'll never get over how unpredictable my body can be. Tonia, that is so great that your dr is so on top of things and cares so much. She probobly feels really bad about what happened to you last month. I really hope that my RE is as on top of things! Staci, when you used progesterone cream, what cd did you start using it? The directions say to use it on cd 12-25, but I think that is based on a 28 day cycle. Since my cycle is usually a day or 2 longer I wonder if I shouldn't start until cd 14. I wouldn't want to miss my opportunity to O or have the progesterone mess anything up in there. I think I'll google it and see what I find.

 

tonia - July 8

Hey Becca, I think you are right about the progesterone cream.....you should start taking it 2 days after confirmed O, until the next af.

 

Becca - July 8

Tonia, yes, I found the same info on the web. I read that if you use it too early in your cycle it can actually prevent O - THAT IS NOT WHAT I WANT!!!!. So I think I'll wait until a couple of days after O and then start to use it until AF arrives. If I stop using it too early it can actually cause an abortion, so I wouldn't want that to happen. Also, by that time I will have already seen my RE and I can ask for his advice too. Thanks Tonia!

 

staci - July 8

yes becca, it's 2 days after O and it is based on a 28 day cycle.. That's why it probably didn't work for me is because I never knew when I was O'ing when I was using it. Tonia you and I were typing at the same time earlier! That is great that your dr. is so on top of things! I am so relieved for you that you don't have to worry about being to late etc.-good news! Becca, sounds like you are getting close! what cd are you on? If I were you I would def be taking some robitussin or mucinex now so your cm will be nice an plentiful! That is weird about your brown gunk, wonder what it could be from? wonder if it could be left over from af?

 

tonia - July 8

Becca, I am taking the robitussin and baby asprin..I think it makes a differnece in the cm for sure. Along with the OPK's I have one of those little microscopes to test my saliva. I sppit on that thing last night and HOLY cow, I just looked at it because I forgot about it! It is bursting with the fern pattern, so I do know I am getting closer to O. Hey Becca maybe we will be on the same schedule this month! I am going to costco today, bog fun on a saturday!

 

tonia - July 9

I meant BIG fun on a Saturday!

Good morning gals! Sorry I was MIA yesterday. The inlaws are coming for dinner tonight and I was cleaning and running errands, etc. I've still got more cleaning to do. Okay, so I am 4 dpo today and I just checked internally and say pink. Is this bad??? It's too early for implantation, right? I've just never had spotting before so it worries me. Let me know what you girls think. Tonia - you have a awesome doctor!!! I hope if I go to an RE they will be like that for me! I got hooked watching the movie on WE about the Dilley s_xtuplets yesterday. The mom had tried using clomid but it didn't work so they used pergonal (sp??). I just about cried when I saw those babies! It was probably a mistake to watch it b/c it made me want to be pregnant even more!

 

Becca - July 9

Good morning ladies! Guess who's ewcm showed up for the party??!?!? Yup - MINE!!! Alright, finally!! My temp went way down to 96.6 this morning. I have a feeling it might be a pre-O dip. We'll just have to see what happens over the next few days and see what my opks say today. Staci, thanks for your help with the progesterone cream. I almost started to use it yesterday which might have stopped O - oops! Anna, 4 dpo is a little on the early side for implantaion bleeding, but not out of the question. Baby dust to you!! Tonia, I've used those microscopes too, and I pretty much get ferning all the whole month off and on. It wasn't very useful for me, but hopefully you have better luck with it. Gotta go jump in the shower! Enjoy your Sunday everybody!

Good morning ladies! Well, Anna, as for the pink discharge, I would say that it could be ovulation bleeding. I've never had it before but I have heard that it is possible. Also, is it possible that you ovulated earlier than you think? If so, then it could be implantation bleeding. I do think that 4DPO is a little early for implantation bleeding...but hey, anything is possible! So, Staci, how are you feeling? Are you feeling confident about this cycle? According to Fertility friend I am 9DPO. I doubt it though. I have been off provera for 3 days and my temp is still elevated (not high, just above coverline). When should my temps fall after provera? Here is my chart again if anyone thinks that they can help me out: www.fertilityfriend.com/home/soimpatient Becca, I hope you get your positive OPK soon! You'd better start bd-ing! :) Tonia, can you tell me a little bit more about you experience with robittussin (sp?) how much do you take? I'm sure that you've said this before but I forget and I'm thinking that maybe I should try it since I have very little cm and I'm spending a small fortune on preseed. p.s. I love Costco! The only thing I don't like about it is that we always end up spending way more than we wanted to. Is kelly coming back today?

 

Anna B. - July 9

Becca and Angela - thanks for your incite. I agree that it is too early for implantation bleeding but I don't know why I would be spotting??? I sure hope it's implantation bleeding. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

 

staci - July 9

GM ladies! Well FF changed my O date today to cd17 so that means i"m only 3dpo : ( That sucks! Anyway, becca you go ewcm queen! Tonia good news on the ferning! Hopefully you and Becca will be on the same schedule, it helps to have someone going through it right at the same time you are. Anna, spotting huh? That is weird, praying it's a very good thing! Angela, i can't believe af hasn't shown yet! I don't know yet if I 'm feeling to confident, but I'm trying to stay positive no matter what I feel. I'm confident we bd'd enough days. You know what is weird? I have the most creamy cm I have ever seen! Hope that's good...Well, Kelly is coming back today right? I hope she peed on a stick in the woods! If it's still + then she is def pg! Anna have fun with the in-laws today! I'm going to go try to clean, might take a while, ds hurt his foot yesterday-it's all bruised and he can' t walk-so he's been making me take him where he wants to go! I'm so upset that this happend now, he has a pre-school evaluation tomorrow and not being able to walk doens't look good! they'll really think he's developmentally delayed!

 

soimpatient - July 9

Oh Staci, that sucks that you fertility friend stole a DPO from you! Bummer! Can you post the link of your chart so I can check it out...if you don't mind of course;) You know what is really weird...I don't feel like af is going to be showing up any time soon! I don't have any pms symptoms either and no pinkish discharge which usually happens a few days before af. I guess I'm a little bit tired but I think that could be from the crazy busy weekend we had. I guess will probably have to wait the full 7-10 days like the doctor said:( So, I'm trying to quit my diet coke addiction. I've been drinking Perier water with a little bit of lime and it is great! I'm totally loving it and is also a "diet" drink.

 

staci - July 9

Angela, here's my chart http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/c5a49 I looked at yours and it does seem that you could have O'd then, it's just really confusing! I honestly dont' know what to say about it...Yes it sucks that FF stole a dpo from me. I truly think that I O'd more that once, when you look at my chart you will see I got a temp spike on cd16 then a little one on cd17, don't understand, oh well! I just can't wait to test! I have 2 tests ready for the occasion! Good for you for quiting your diet coke addiction! They are so not good for you with that aspartame in it. I was hooked on diet a&w root beer for a long time and finally quit that about 5 months ago. it was hard! If you look up the side effects of aspartame it will help you quit even quicker! Now I drink pepsi one or anything with splenda in it. Mostly I drink water but I have to have a coke a day(pepsi one has new flavors-orange, grape and red berry-very good!) Anyway, in laws are getting ready to be here, got to go cover up my pizza face!

 

tonia - July 9

Good Morning ladies. Well I tested with an OPK and it is VERY positive. I sent a message to my dr. I have some twinges in my left ovarie, I sure hope I haven't O'd yet. I have to say, both sides have activity and my dr did say I had 2 follies on my right and one on my left so hopefully I will get lucky and all three will release! BEks, where are you? Did you test yet? Anna, that would be really neato if that is implantation bleeding. Angela, I take 2 teaspoons (10ml) 3x/day of the robitussin with an 8oz gla__s of water every time! I take one baby asprin every morning to prepare my lining for implantation. Oh and I have been addicted to diet sunkist lately! Totalyy don't drink much coffee or colas any more, just slowly weined myself off........ Well if my dr gets my message I wonder what she will want to do? U/S today or just wait til morning? I better finish getting ready, I need to get to some Open Houses today! Plus I want to get some more shopping done!
