@delight: I am so very happy to hear of that news!!! I was literally grinning from ear to ear! God is so good! I will continue to pray for a healthy pregnancy!
@Ajsmommy: Happy Belated Birthday! I'm so glad the IUI went well! It is super quick! I was very surprised at that!! So sorry your sick and hoping the 2WW goes by super quick! Hoping this is what you needed to get your BFP!
@Crystal: Sorry your temps are being so weird! Glad you got to have some R & R!! That's so important! Hoping the next week goes by quickly and you get your BFP!!!
AFM: I'm doing good! These last 2 months of school will fly by! We have so much planned and so much to do that it will keep me super busy! I have about 2 weeks left of the BC, so I have my own special TWW! Lol! Hoping and praying this cyst is gone and we can move forward with our next IUI!

Hello ladies, I've been MIA again but loosely following along and cheering everyone on.
We've worked out some kinks at the doctor and I'm ready to join the TTC boards again!
Is there an April board? I haven't been able to find it.

@WinterBee: not yet. We don't always jump on the next month right away. You are welcome to start one!
@delight: thank you. I'm really hoping this is it
@Winnie13: when is your next scan? The R&R is wonderful, I really need it!
After the last two mornings temps, if i discard the CD15 dip, now move my O fate to CD17, like I thought it should be. It's a dotted line, and I hope it changes to solid in the next few days. 7DPO now!

@delight: I came to have a peek at this board because I felt like reading some good news from someone. I'm so so happy that your scan came with a perfect little baby. That's exactly the kind of thing I was hoping to read about. I hope after everything you've been through, you fly through the rest of this with no worries.
@MrsB2012: thanks so much. I still find it hard to believe and of course am nervous, but I'm hoping this is it for us. Best wishes to you, I know you are TTC again
@Crystal: Yay! 1 week down, 1 more to go! When are you going to start testing?? I don't go in for my next scan until AF starts. I basically am sitting out an entire cycle. I have 2 weeks left of BCP, so AF should start in about 2 weeks from Wednesday. Hoping the cyst is long gone by then!

@Crystal: we're in the tww! I'm hoping it's our time! When will you test?
@Winnie13: hoping your cyst is history on your next scan!!
@Crystal: Ahhhh! I'll wait... I don't want to commit to starting one because I'm not sure if I'll be able to keep up with it this month.
I do have some exciting news I wanted to share though. I finally ovulated!!! (I think) haha.
April is the 1 year mark into our TTC journey and up until this point I hadn't ovulated (that I know of). We found a dosage of letrozole the doctor said I was responding well to at my CD3 day ultrasound. I decided to try OPKs this month and I got what I'm pretty sure is a positive one this morning!
I just wanted to add I added the other OPK for reference. The left one was from this morning and the right one was from yesterday.
@WinterBee: looks awesome to me! Must be a relief to O! Good luck this month.
@Winnie13: I hope your cyst is long gone by then!
@Ajsmommy: fx for you!!!
@Ajsmommy: @Winnie13: Im 8DPO today. I think I might test Wednesday at 10DPO. I'll definitely test Friday if anything!
@WinterBee: that looks good! Yay for Oing!
@delight: @Crystal: thanks!
Now I'm kicking myself, we finally have a shot and I stupidly told DH I was ovulating because I was excited, now he's having some performance anxiety. We did BD the day before my + OPK and 2 days before that. We're going to try again tonight. Hoping we're not out for our first real shot in a year!
Hey, how's everyone doing??? been quiet here for a few days!
@Crystal: did you poas?
@WinterBee: were you able to get some BD done around your + opk??
@Winnie13: how is it going? feeling good?
@delight: how are you feeling??
AFM, I am 8dpiui and I am surprisingly antsy to test although I know it's too early!!! My bloods aren't even for another whole week, April 15. I don't feel pregnant but I'm still hopeful..... however naïve that might be!!!
@WinterBee: awwwww! Poor guy! Have you been able to at least get decent timing?
@Ajsmommy: fx for you!!
I'm 12DPO and got a BFN. My temps also fell dramatically. I think I'm out. I'm going to keep holding out hope until I start spotting, but im fairly sure that it's over.
I'm getting really really nervous. The first time, we conceived on our own. The second time, it was the second round of Clomid. This is going to be the end of my third round this time with no BFP.
@Ajsmommy: @Crystal: I think we have. It was just the first night when I just got the + that there was a problem. We've been like rabbits since lol.
@Ajsmommy: I feel the same way! Sending good vibes
@Crystal: fingers crossed for you
@WinterBee: glad you were able to get some BD in. We had the same male issues when TTC. Good luck!!!
@Ajsmommy: thanks for checking in! I'm feeling pretty awful these days but I won't complain! I did my NIPT test this week and have my 12 week scan in a couple weeks. Good luck to you!! Hope to see a positive test in the next few days!
@Crystal: as always, I'm hoping for good news from you
@Crystal: I'm hoping you are a late implanter!! All you can do is hold onto that hope! It's hard, but it's the only thing we have during this journey!! How were your temps this morning??
@winterbee: So glad you O'd and got in some great timing!! Yay! Hoping you get your BFP!!
@ajsmommy: Thanks for checking in!! I'm so excited for you!!! I would be antsy too!! Hold onto that hope!!! Hoping for some great news next week!!
AFM: I can still feel my cyst! It's like a constant reminder of being stuck in this holding period. Hoping though, my next cycle flushes it out!! I have about a week left of the BC! Hoping I get AF by the 20th!! We will see! Trying not to get discouraged... Just praying the cyst goes away this cycle!!
@WinterBee: @delight: thanks for the support. ️
@WinterBee: glad you could get some bd in! Fx!
@Winnie13: fell dramatically again. Not spotting yet, but I'm 99% sure it's coming. Meh. Fx your cyst goes away!!!!
@Crystal: I'm sorry girl!! Treat yourself to something amazing! Will you do another round of Clomid?
@Winnie13: AF started- Womp Womp. Yep, I'm going to do another round of 100mg. FX this works! This cycle, I'm going to cut down on carbs, be more consistent about exercise, and cut out alcohol. But for now, bring on the drinks!
@Crystal: sorry about af!! but hopefully next cycle will be yours!!
AFM, I am refusing to test. My blood draw is first thing Friday morning. I have to be honest I am feeling very negative about this right now. Feeling def NOT pregnant and really starting to think that it'll never happen. If I get BFN Friday then we only have TWO more chances. How in the world will we get pregnant with only TWO more chances?? Uggggg.. hate these emotions!!!!
@Ajsmommy: I totally understand that feeling!
When is AF due? I'm keeping all my fingers and toes crossed for you!
I have to take this next month off. I think my lining was too thin this last month. I'm planning on discussing it with my dr at my appt this week, and I hope I only have to sit out a month.
@Crystal: my lining was thin so they had me start estrace.... I have used it the last two cycles bc clomid makes your lining thinner
@Ajsmommy: have you used it while on Clomid? And when did you take it? I want to ask my dr about it tomorrow...
@Ajsmommy: and was it covered by your insurance? How much was it?
@Crystal: for me both times they started it right around when I did my trigger. Bc it was only 5 mm. They want it to be up around 8 mm for successful implantation. With the medication my lining increased by 2 mm in one day the first time, I went from 5 mm to 7 mm. Once you start it you continue it through the rest of the cycle (not really sure why)....
For my last cycle (my first IUI) my lining was at 5mm again and they had me start the estrace/estrodial and the next day it was up to a 6mm. I triggered that night and had IUI 2 days later so they were hoping it had gotten thicker by the time implantation would "have" theoretically taken place.
It is cheap... I paid $10 for a 30 day supply I think. It's one pill twice a day. It was not covered by my insurance but none of this fertility stuff has been....
@Ajsmommy: Good for you!!!! Hoping you get a great Beta!!
@crystal: hoping your doc will let you try the meds so you don't have to sit out!! What CD are you?? Keep us posted!!
AFM, 4 more days of my active pills!!! Woo!!! Can't wait for AF to get here (who thought with TTC I'd ever hope for that)! I've had spotting the entire month on BC. The spotting got much darker recently and the nurse at the RE thinks it could be the cyst passing!! I'm hoping!! BC pills make my body nuts!!
@Winnie13: Goodluck! I felt the same when my doctor put me on the pill for a month, soooo happy to finally see AF!
I created a post but it hasn't gotten much traction, hoping you ladies can help too. I did progesterone blood work on CD22 and it came back 127 nmol. It was flagged as high. I emailed my doctor but he hasn't gotten back to me yet. Anyone else experience such a high number around CD22? I'm thinking I ovulated roughly CD16.
@WinterBee: that does seem high! Sorry I can't be of help, I only have experiences with low P.
@Winnie13: I hope so. I'm really nervous about starting over again with a new doctor. Yay for only a few pills left!!!
@Ajsmommy: thank you so much for sharing! You've given me hope, I'll have to ask the dr. Thank you! How are you feeling? Is DH anxious for you to test?
@Winnie13: yay!! mmmm bye cyst!!
@WinterBee: I am sorry I am no help, I have no idea about p, I don't even know what mine is...
@Crystal: no problem! glad to share some info. hope it works for you! how do you know your lining was thin and do you know how thin it was? AFM, I am not feeling pregnant. I have been having cramps and my boobs really hurt, I noticed this morning.. but as we all know that could just be AF symptoms. I have my blood work tomorrow to see if I am pg. I have decided not to test at all (I think) and just let it ride and see what the blood says. I fully suspect it will be BFN. Dh doesn't show if he is anxious or not. He asked last week when my blood work was so I know he thinks about it but he doesn't let me know how often he thinks about it. And I told him I could test yesterday/today or tomorrow and probably know and he said to just wait for the blood work.
I just heard back from my doctor. He said that the high progesterone level means that I definitely ovulated, and because the number is so high I ovulated more than one egg. I'm excited and nervous. Hoping this could be our month!
@WinterBee: nice!!! fingers crossed for you!
@Ajsmommy: Thank you! I should know soon.
I took a test yesterday, BFN... but I'm hoping too soon maybe? It was app. 7DPO when I tested. I'm becoming impatient! haha.
As expected bfn.
