Thanks Laroussi! I work until 23:30, so I'll be lucky if he's still awake. My temp dropped quite a bit this morning and the pulling in my lower left quadrant has started to subside. I also took a test with FMU and got a negative again (today is 20 DPO, so a + should easily show up by now). Anyway, with my temp dropping, hopefully AF will be here today or tomorrow. I knew it was a cyst (call it a gut feeling), but thank you so much for all of the encouragement and thanks for letting me completely freak out. I really needed to. I hope this doesn't start happening all of the time...yuck.
I hope someone gets a positive test around here soon. We will be starting something (IUI for sure)one way or the other in April or May after DH has another SA.

do u have the same situation????????My husband has a low sperm count............ just curious.......I had first IUI 2/12 and 2/13..<p>[This message has been edited by ams37 (edited 02-22-2003).]
im so sorry about ttc in triplicate! I was impatient and hit send 3 times..i thought it wasnt going. I asked the moderator to delete the other two so we'll see.. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/clown.gif">Shaylind...happy birthday! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/clown.gif"> what do you do for work? how can you be certain its a cyst?Are gonna go see a doc? have you had one b4? ams37... does your husband feel okay about having low sperm count? I think my dh worries he might. We'll get everything checked in April. We got prego in 1 month last may but had a m/s in July..now ttc for 6 mos and zilcho, i feel its going to happen soon, real soon!Laroussi, refresh my memory please did af show up for you? Werent you waiting with momarican, autumn, and shaylind? This month i m prepared. If I o on day 20, i wont expect AF until day 40(long cycles are horrible for me) if I o on day 15 i will expect af on day 30. Thats been the only pattern I can trace. Good luck ladies!
Robyn: I had the same issues with posting, I think the topic is sooo busy all the time - there's a long wait to post. I found an ovul calc test online and you enter days of cycle it calculates next O time. It might help since your cycle is long. My next fertile date is March 3rd but I'm still going to use the OPK to track LH. I can't wait! I'm also awaiting the book TYOCF to arrive - there's so much to know about timing, that most of you gals know, but I'm such novice at this. Wish you all the best - catch that egg darlin' <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
thanx late bloomer, ive heard alot of good stuff about that book. I have a different one, not a good one, but it was handed down from one of the parents at my preschool. March 3rd, i ll bet you cant wait! My cycles vary from month to month and my recent dieting (started in jan) hasnt helped. My weight has dropped 15lbs <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bouncing.gif"> I just bd every other day from day 12 -20 and when i notice my temp drop dh will insert an extra set of swimmers!Its totally timing and even if thats right the chances are like 20 percent, who would have thought it was difficult...not me! good luck.. ill be in and out all weekend! mostly here though!
Congrats on your weight loss, I know that has been important to you. I'm up 6 of the 30 I lost, but I'm back on track. Gonna cool it on the spinning for awhile, just wish the weather would get better so I can do my power walking.
I know, who knew it was going to be this much of an effort to conceive. When we got married Oct 2001 took the IUD out and got preg June 2002...m/c 6 wks <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif"> So now that we're ready tc (since Nov) the results are a big (-) <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif"> Joining this group has made the passing of time so much better and we're all in this together. I'm learning alot from the process to TRUST and RELAX! So here's to our next try ++++++++++++++++++

latebloomer, m/c is so sad isnt it. Its amazing to me how well dh and i recovered. It was the worst day of our lives but it somehow brought us much closer and stronger. My m/c was in july and i must say both emotionally and physically im fully recovered but when i do get prego...i will be so scared. I told dh not to call me mommy and i wont call him daddy until im a good 12 weeks along. I was 6 weeks and already baby shopping!Im also not going to tell many people(easier said than done) Did you tell many people?
i finally saw those spin classes at my new gym, they look so uncomfortable!!! Ive always heard of spin class but never actually have seen one of those bikes.Im scared to try that class.Why have decided to stop spinning? Do you feel its preventing conception? Just wondering if youve heard anything about ttc and excersize.I know i cannot stop vigorous workouts, i still weigh 285. My lowest weight is 200 and i feel wonderful there but i wanted my highest weight to be 250, i'm 5'10. When i was pg in may i was 250 and gained 10 lbs in cancun. 2 months prior i was in Hawii and gained a good 10 there too.2 months prior to that was las vegas, another 10. 2002 was our travel year for we also went to the bahamas. What have i learned....Lose the first 10lbs before you gain another 10 lbs...sorry to ramble and sound like weight watchers. Every weekend th board turns into ww
Oh Robyn, we told everyone after we got the blood results from Dr. We kinda felt like we were keeping something from our family - felt uncomfortable. But not the next time, truly our secret and of course this thread! Because of my age, have to have amnio so thats another reason to keep it underwraps. If its not a healthy preg - decision will be up to DH and I not the whole family - I never thought I'd m/c - so learned lots as a result. The good news is we can get prego - and lots of woman suffer m/c and become prg. My Doctor sees this all the time, he smiles everytime I see him and gives me his prediction. I really like my Dr its important. I used to call him and make his office put him on the phone to bother him with all the stuff that comes up here "why am I late" "what is CM" he always says the same thing. "If you're cycle hasn't started by next week, come in for a test"
The m/c was horrible for me too. My DH seemed ok, he's quiet that way, but now he tells me getting prg is on his mind 24:7. So we're gearing up for March <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> It will be scary if you and I conceive, but thank God for you gals, I think I'd go crazy without this kinda support. We waited 6 mos before even discussing trying again, I WAS SO SCARED! No way did I want to cry like that again...tee hee! But I got my trust back. It does get better <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
Robyn: I'm just taking it easy on spinning, I used to spin 5x a week. I read that heavy duty cardio is not a good idea if ttc. Walking is the ultimate best, so I'm looking forward to better weather. I used to live in the SF bay area. Its nice in Milpitas, I miss that warm weather. I moved back to NJ (home) after 13 yrs in bay area. Its great to be home! I also rekindled an old love and married him <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> But I sure miss the beauty of Cal. Hang in there with the weight loss, you're doing great. I do my best to eat 1200 cals (5'2") and drink lots of water. Exercise is key and you're doing great.
rekindled a past love? so youve dated b4? That sounds so romantic! Where did you live in the bay area? Milpitas is a bit more affordable than cupertino, los altos, saratoga.. i work right in the middle of those fancy towns. Milpitas smells a little due to the Alviso dumps but its a smaller community. Do you know the technical reason why high cardio isnt so good for ttc? Just wondering? Im so glad your here coresponding with me, usually nobody is here on Saturdays.
I'm glad you're here too! Its cold and rainy out here and I'm bored, but I do love being a couch potato today and not feeling guilty! I read that unless you're a true athlete (not me) its not a good idea to do too much cardio (running, spinning) if you're ttc. I started my heavy duty cardio this past Sept, and toned it down a bit since we're ttc since Nov. Walking and slow jogging is best for someone like me.
Yep I dated my DH when I was 18!! 20 years later we were both single, guess its fate. I had soooooo much to learn in between, I used to be attracted to the bad boys, that had other babes on the side or hidden agendas. Not my DH he's my soulmate and doesn't take advantage of my love. Life definitely has it twists and turns. How did you meet your DH?
When I first landed in CA, I lived in Sunnyvale, than moved to San Mateo and Burlingame area. I liked it up there closer to the city. Los Gatos is gorgeous. Have you ever been down to San Diego, I absolutely love La Jolla.<p>[This message has been edited by late bloomer (edited 02-22-2003).]
LateBloomer and Robyn! You two are busy!! LOL Can I join in??? LOL
Thank you for that wonderful poem, LateBloomer...you made my day!
Mommarican, the dog show was Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. And we were there today while you were at the auto show! If I had known yesterday we could maybe have met up in the Hyatt lobby or something! Did you get your test results yet????
I hope you guys don't think I'm being silly here...but judging my temps, I think I ovulated seven days ago when my temp hit a huge dip and went to 96.2...since then I have had 6 days of rising temps. I am trying NOT to get my hopes up but I think there is still a possibility for me this month. I keep expecting the temps to nosedive indicating AF will get herself here...and I am really hoping I can get in 14 days of higher temps before she shows so I know I have a normal luteal phase. Anyway, if I am right (and I think I am), the blood drawn on Wednesday couldn't possibly have shown a positive...implantation may not even have occurred. No false hopes (I don't believe)...but just kind of thinking there is still a possibility. DH and I did bd on the day of ovulation. So...it'll still be a waiting game for a few more days anyway...I think. On day 43 (never have I ever gone this long)!
LateBloomer, that is so cool...rekindling an old romance! I'll bet it was difficult getting used to New Jersey weather after living in CA? It was for me when I came back to IL from Washington state! And how I miss that mild weather there! Too cold in winters here...too hot in summers! I don't do well in the extremes!
Robyn, I am glad you started TTC (18)...3 times! LOL The other was getting so long!
Our Nela must be having a GREAT time... <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/heart.gif">
I hope you are all doing well... <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/birthday.gif"> to Shaylind! I am sorry you had to work though!
I think we all need to do a cycle update pretty soon...I don't know who is where anymore!
Thinking of you all... <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/heart.gif">
Ive never been to san diego just hollywood and aneheim
(universal stud. and disneyland) I met my dh almost 6 years ago. I was 22 and he was 23. I had been all over the "bar scene" one night stands(they were fun to me) and had 2 real relationships(1+ years together)but I never met anyone that wanted to spend the rest of my life with until i met dh. i wish this was romantic but its sooo not! DH was a roomate of my male friend's, friend.(get it) I was interested the minute i laid eyes on him and later that night asked my male friends girlfriend(still following) to call and invite thier friend and his roomate to hang out at the bar we were at. I was too drunk to drive and went home with dh. We had what i thought was a wild 1 night stand and he called me the next day! We took things fast and moved in together 3 months later. 4years after our first "date" (he he ha ha) we were married on May 19 2001.
Autumleaves, you must feel great knowing that this indeed may be your month!!!!!!!!! What a wonderful surprise!!! Good thing you bd around that time!Day 13 of my cycle..and time for some more cough syrup.How did you meet your dh? Mine was so un -classy! I cant believe i told you guys the truth, we always make it sound a little nicer than that.<p>[This message has been edited by friendlyrobyn (edited 02-22-2003).]
