CD1 for baby #1 AGAIN :(


Hi ladies. I have rarely ventured over to the LTTTC. I am 35, hubby 44. Had a feeling we were going to have trouble since I never have been pregnant, but now in disbelief since Im really here. Planning to start doctors in October when my insurance kicks in. Right now Im doing supplements of Maca, prenatals, omega, primrose, lcarnitine, chromium picolinate, guafenesin, and vitamin B and D. We use pre seed and conceive plus alternatively since I have hostile cm due to benadryl use. This cycle using soft cups. DTD every other day from day 8(about) to day 22 and never seen a BFP. I eat low carb, dairy and caffeine free, and have 3 glasses of wine 2-3 days a week. I exercise daily and besides my insanely stressful job, I am pretty low key. My cycles are 29-32 days. Any other suggestions for these last months before seeing a doctor? Honestly feeling like giving up.

Welcome! I'm new here this week too! Been trying for over 2 years...I feel your frustration. I know when I went to the doctor they wanted to know if I had confirmed ovulation. Are you ovulation testing? Or taking Basel temp?

I try to temp, but i dont sleep soundly so its up and down. I have taken opks the first 2 months and had 2 surges, so stopped since. However, did reorder and will use them this cycle. also decided to use soy this cycle and praying it doesnt mess up my cycle. what are you doing this cycle? what did your docs say?

Try temping in the evening. My morning temp is always nuts but if I take it at 10 pm after relaxing on the couch for a while it is always consistent. Also just to note, I find if I have even 1 glass of wine it can knock my Temps out for a couple of days.

I've tried temp. And it just doesn't work for me because I'm up 2-3 times a night. That's great you have had 2 surges with ovulation testing. That is good info for the doctors. I use to use the clear blue fertility monitor. But one time I got a peak and my day 21 blood work said I didn't ovulate. So I was like I'm not spending all this money on this sticks and they can be false! So now we are on clomid. Dtd eod from day 9-22. And using pressed during days day 12-17. And day 21 blood work testing. On 2nd round of clomid and up too 100mg. 50mg didn't make me ovulate so hoping this cycle I do! Go in for day 21 on tuesday!! Fingers crossed

hey jj, I found acupuncture to be very helpful for TTC as well as anxiety relief. I was so against it, even when I started, but I was hooked 4 sessions in. Hang in there, your forever baby will be here.

Thanks 1of14. I have thought about acupuncture. I prefer natural things before jumping to clomid etc. I am hoping we dont need anything after this cycle. Have a good feeling , but then I always do
