Ask, I am so glad you have some answers. I am sure it has just created more questions, but at least it is a step in the right direction.

Earth, that's awesome!! Congrats!!

Thanks Lucy. It's pretty scary thinking there's a chance I may never be able to have my own biological children but my doctor seemed optimistic that we will find a good embryo, it just might take more than one retrieval. I'm going to have to start looking into grants that we can apply for. Most women with Turner syndrome are infertile/sterile and then most of the ones that do have functioning ovaries go through early menopause but that doesn't seem to be the case for me at all. Even some women with a low percentage of abnormal cells like me have worse symptoms so I guess I'm pretty lucky. My egg supply is very good...but given my age and this chromosomal abnormality my miscarriage rate is high. Thankfully IVF and PGD can help with that. I've also read that women with Turner syndrome are inherently in the high risk pregnancy category due to heart complications. I don't have any known heart issues but I will have to have a full work up done. It's all kinda scary but I'm glad we are getting answers...there's a sense of relief in that I guess. How are you doing? Your chart is looking awesome!

Congrats on the O Earth! That's gotta be exciting and a huge relief!

Earth, I totally get that. I started testing way too early this cycle, lol. Just don't let yourself get too down at any early BFN's.

Ask, that does sound scary, I can't imagine the combination of things you must be feeling. But the fact that your doctor is optimistic is a good sign, I would hope that most good doctors would be cautious about giving hope if there was none. And I understand the fear of never having biological children; I have that same fear and I don't even know what our issues are yet.

Still trying to be hopeful. Still worried maybe I O'ed late (like maybe with the second temp rise) and missed it. But trying to keep my head up. If my chart is correct, I am 12 DPO. BFN yesterday, but temp keeps going up. I don't *think* my temp has been this high this late before. Fx! Testing again tomorrow and Sunday until I either get the ever elusive BFP, or AF appears. DH's sperm analysis is Monday, and our appt with the RE is the following week...

Lucy - I don't think you Od later. Maybe even 1 day earlier. I think you've got it covered! Did you have spotting at 8-9dpo? That would be wonderful if you get your bfp just before more testing! FX!

Meant to mention that DH's sperm analysis was normal despite our collection method (pull out). His morphology was slightly below ideal as it was in his first SA as well but the doctor said it's not an issue since his count and motility is good.

I did have spotting, but (TMI alert) I can't help but wonder if it could have been caused by bd'ing and not enough (*ahem*) lubrication, lol. I do normally spot right before AF, but it is normally brown, and this was different. Sort of pink mixed with CM? Hard to describe. Haven't had any of the usual brown spotting yet. According to Fert Friend, AF is due tomorrow, but it could also be Saturday. My cycles are so whacky, so I can't help myself and input my data in other places too, and one of them said I could have O'ed as late as CD 22. I pray that is not the case. I think you are right, but I can't help but worry.

So I have had some symptoms, but I have been explaining them away to try to keep from getting my hopes up too much. But it's so hard not to symptom spot. DH keeps telling me I put too much pressure on myself, and I finally told him, it's impossible not to, might as well embrace it, lol. I felt somewhat similar to AF cramping (not as intense) Saturday-Monday of last weekend, but I would have thought I would have gotten a positive yesterday if that was implantation. I have been feeling something, hard to describe the feeling, on my lower right side, just inside my hip since then, but it comes and goes. Boobs have been feeling different the last couple days, but I can't pin it down, could be all in my head. Had a surprising amount of CM yest. Have been tired and had headaches, but that could also be because I have cut down on caffeine a bit. Occasional dizziness. A few times when I googled CM this week, some of the pictures made me nauseous, and driving in the car yesterday I felt a little carsick, which never happens when I am the one driving. Of course, all of this could be a coincidence, certainly wouldn't be the first cycle.

When I got that evap at 9 DPO, I kept googling "evap to BFP" and apparently it's a thing for some people, but it hasn't happened for me yet, lol. Yesterday's test, no evap, no BFP. Praying my BFP comes before Monday. But if it doesn't, glad to know "alternative collection methods" don't seem to cause any issues

Thank you as always for the support ladies!

Lucy - I have high hopes for you! Those are similar symptoms to what I experienced before my bfps. AF like cramping, dizziness, headaches. The spotting sounds like it could be implantation spotting. I know these last few days are the hardest part!

Just Wondfo's so far. I have a Clear Blue Digital, but I want to save it. If I ever get a positive on something else, then use the digi to show DH. Is it worth going to get some FRER's? I actually tried to get those when I bought the digi, but they were out of stock so I figured the digi was the next best thing. But then AF came that night and saved me the trouble.

Makes me tear up to think about it. I want to show that digi to DH so badly. Feel like he won't believe it if it ever finally happens, lol.
