TTC Baby 3, hang in there. I am glad u and ur hubby were able to talk, but you never know, things happen when you least expect it. Maybe try and go on a little vacation if you can around ovulation time (but don't tell him so that there'e no pressure! haha) or else just try and not think about it constantly. Believe me, I know it's hard, being on fertility, I just wondering how far I will have to go to try and have a baby, but I realized that I can't put my entire life on hold waiting for something to happen. It's so hard when you want it soooo bad though. Hang in there, things will work out! I am a firm believer that there is a plan for everything! Good luck!
Wannabemom thank you for your encouragement! Yes I'm a firm believer of "everything happens for a reason"....I'm so much of a planner too though so I'm a little stubborn lol. I am having frequent twinges in my lower right and left sides of my abdomen, mostly on my right side though.....maybe it's a pregnancy sign. My breasts are not sore the same way they were last month around this time, but the veins are much more apparent today. I had a very weird night mare last night and I very rarely remember my dreams, except when I'm pregnant...ugh I hope this doesn't continue. I will test Sunday to see if our "not really trying" ;-) worked this month! :-) I wish you the best of luck too this month, you seem very sweet and I hope we both get our wish!!! Lots and Lots of Baby Dust!!!
Thank you Laura!! :-D My body may be getting ready for AF to come, but it's not for another week and I started having cramps yesterday. Keeping our fingers crossed and hoping if I am I'm not sick the middle of June for our vacation. I will let you know what the result is next week. I did have another night mare last night....what is it with these dreams, I didn't sleep very well last night. :-( I very rarely have night mares!
TTC Baby 3, maybe the "not trying" worked this month!!! Sounds promising with the dreams and all, haha! My sister has been TTC for 9 months, and she was charting and everything, and last month she "gave up". Well, she's pregnant now! I am surrounded by BFP's, I hope it rubs off on me soon! LOL!
I am currently 6 dpo, and have been cramping a lot today. I have had lots of creamy CM, which never usually happens after ovulation for me, but not sure if it could be a preg symptom, or if it's the fertility drugs...who knows. Too early to tell I guess! Keep me updated for sure! I will keep you in my prayers.
LauraLu, hope you're doing well! Thanks for cheering us on still!! haha!
Well, maybe we will be the two pregnant together this month wannabemom :-D !!! Then you will have to change your member name :-) Hopefully the cramping is a sign for us both!!! I will be praying for us both, thank you! Very exciting for you to be having my same symptoms on the cramping...I guess right? Just a few more days till we find out!
Hi Ladies, Care if I join you? I have been following your posts here and am very excited for you all! AF is due for me on Monday. I have been doing clomid and visiting with the doctor every 4 weeks. I feel hopeful this month, not sure why, nothing major different physically just a woman's intuition I guess. Well I go to the doctor tomorrow, Friday, for my check up. I think I am going to test in the morning just so I know before the doctor tells me either way. I'm super excited and still hopeful, I hope we all get our BFP!!!
Hi Dolphin! Good luck at the Dr. today, hope your intuition is right! :-D Keep us posted and lots of baby dust to you!
I tested this morning with a Clear Blue digital and BFN, I was hoping my cramps pushed my hCG levels up enough (if indeed I have any) to show up. I know it was way too early, AF is not suppose to come until Thursday the 27th. My cramps are getting stronger now and I have a burning sensation from my c section scar and down. When I walk this morning I have a very low pinching feeling. I really feel the possibility of pregnancy but now I'm thinking maybe of not testing again until I miss. I hope all this cramping doesn't mean something negative...but I'm feeling hopeful too. I'm getting tired of waiting with all these symptoms.
Welcome dolphin! I hope your intuition is right! Are you TTC your first child? Just curious.
TTC baby 3, we are on the same cycle! AF is due for me on the 28th! CRAZY! haha! It's funny, I am actually leaving for vacation to go see my family on the day my AF is due, how cool would that be to get to tell everyone I'm pregnant? LOL...I am thinking WAYYY too far ahead! I have a bad feeling that this is not my month though, maybe I am trying to talk myself out of it. The day after I O'd I came down with food poisioning and was horribly ill. It took so much out of me, I dunno, I just feel like that could not have gone in my favor. It was AFTER I O'd though, so who knows. I always feel crampy from the time I O until AF starts because of these fertility meds, so that's not really new to me I guess (especially since I have PCOS). But, I guess only time will tell. Man I HATE the 2ww!!!! hahaha...at least we all have each other!
TTC baby 3, the pinching that you're experiencing sounds promising! Maybe that's a good sign! I will keep my fingers crossed for all of you!!!

Thank you for the warm welcoming. It sounds like all three of us are together in our cycles. My check up went well, although nothing was discovered. I had O'd last Friday, so since I'm only 7 DPO I'm still hopeful. The doctor said I had good mucus and sounded hopeful too. He said to test on Friday if nothing happens. I don't know if I can wait that long. I hope I find a lot to keep me busy and pass the time.
Ok, I feel like I'm pregnant and really would be shocked if what I'm feeling is just PMS. Laura I know you tested on 11 dpo and was positive, tomorrow I will be 11 dpo and curious to know if tomorrow would be too early. What does everyone think? To test tomorrow or to not test tomorrow lol? I am suppose to start AF on Thursday the 27th and I test with opk's on the 11th and 12th of the month, the 13th was negative so guess my LH surge was gone. I think I may test in the morning...I don't think I can wait lol. I really wish I could get a blood test but I'm just being impatient. :-D :-D
I'm now on the 2ww. I'm only 3 dpo so I'm keeping my fingers cross we get a BFP this time round. If not take meds one more time to try again old fashion way in June if don't get pg by July. Then we will be seeing our Re in July to talk about doing a Lap then what other steps to take.
TTC baby 3 ~ That's a tough call. Even at 11 dpo my line was so faint that I had to run from room to room and try and see it - BUT - it was definitely there! I did spend the extra $ with the digital too.
I say if you have a VERY regular 28/29 day cycle, then you should be good to go. I bought the First Response (test 6 days before). It was in the pink box and came with 3 tests. (I got a coupon off line too ).
If you have spare tests, then definitely do it; otherwise, wait til Wednesday.
I'm not completely sure Wannabemom, I took the opt's Tuesday and Wednesday May 11th and 12th and they were positive at 11am...on Thursday at the same time I did another and the test came back with only one line so I'm starting with Thursday the 13th as 1 dpo, so wouldn't today be 11dpo? This is the first time ttc using opt's, please help. :-) I think I calculated right though. I tested this morning at 2am and again at 8:30am and both First Response (test 6 days before your missed period) were BFN. My veins in my boobs are so dark and swollen when I take my bra off at the end of the evening and I sware I'm having the classic pregnancy symptoms so how is it nothing is showing up. I am calling my OBGYN tomorrow and making an appt so hopefully I will know something in a couple of days.....this is all really wierd! If I'm not pregnant something is probably wrong because today I'm running 100.2 temp with hot flashes.
Hi TTC baby 3! Honestly, I am not the best person to tell you about OPK's because they never worked for me. Since I have PCOS, I would try and use them but would always get a positive all the time. Wierd huh? I think it sounds like you are pregnant! Not trying to get your hopes up though, but with symptoms that big it seems like you are! Even if you are 11 dpo today or 12 dpo, a lot of people don't see any sort of BFP until after AF is late...so don't worry! That can change every single day! There is still TONS of hope left for you this cycle so don't worry about it yet! Try and hang in there until AF is due and then POAS again, or POAS every morning until then! LOL! Do you remember having any of those symptoms with your other pregnancies? They can all be different though I hear.
As for me, I don't feel any symptoms of any kind right now. The only thing is that my CM is still creamy and watery, it has been that way since O, but I am thinking that it might be caused by the fertility drugs. Who knows. I don't feel pregnant though, so I don't think it's my month. I guess we'll see what happens! I am keeping my fingers crossed that you see your BFP in the next couple days!!!!
TTC baby 3,
about the Mirena.....have you had regular periods since you've been off of it? If so, I would think that your hormones should probably be ok if you are ovulating and having a period. If you still get a BFN after AF is due and she doesn't show up, then you should definitely go to the doc and get a blood test for pregnancy (sometimes it doesn't show up right away when you POAS), and then if you aren't then you can maybe get your hormones check then with some bloodwork. Good luck to you, I really hope it's a BFP!!! It sounds very promising!!!!
I did go to my Dr today and they are currently doing blood work, we will find out the results within the next couple of days. My Dr. also scheduled me to come back next week. I don't want to get my hopes up on being pregnant but yes I would think I am too. This is going to be strange if I have these symptoms before getting my AF's. I knew I was pregnant with my second but that one was not at all a planned pregnancy, my first symptoms were feeling sluggish and just not right. My first pregnancy I was a little sick when I went on vacation and then took a test because that pregnancy was planned. I really didn't expect to feel all the symptoms I've currently been having until further along. I my Mirena taken out the middle of February and have had a period every month since, March was very light but April was normal like before I Mirena. I switched from a 29 day cyle to 28 I believe...I haven't wrote any of this down but based on last month if I'm for sure a 28 day cycle I should start AF Thursday so yes I think I'm regular. I think I will just wait for my blood test results and save my last two tests....have the feeling my body has changed since Mirena and would be too good to be true that I'm pregnant. I go back and forth lol...this is so confusing.
I really hope you have a postive test this month too!!! Thank you for talking to me thru this.... :-) I will write as soon as I found out the result.
