I spoke to a urology friend yesterday and found out that our BDing scheduling may have been too much. We were doing the day the OPK was positive, the next day (presumed ovulation day) and the day after. He said that it was too quick and we should only do it every other day to give the sperm time to improve in concentration to help with conception. I don't know if that advice might help you as well. He said to do it more frequently overall but just change it to every other day. My DH really wants a boy so we were trying to time it... but we'll see.
I believe that is true if your dh has problem with his sperm count. This cycle (when we conceived), we dtd every day, sometimes twice a day for about 5 days leading up to O and a couple days after. It was never forced - we were both just really randy. So it's possible that dh's count was lower by the time O came around and we just caught with one of his guys that had been up there for awhile, but I've heard of a lot of women that dtd every day and get pregnant. As long as there's no problem with sperm count, I say go for it!
looks like there arent too many of us left! the baby dust has to land on ONE of us! The herd is thinning
The herd certainly is thinning...but I'm still here with you! I haven't been on for a few weeks due to a crazy work schedule, but wanted to check in. There have been so many BPF's on here, so congrats to all! Admittedly, it does make it hard when you are not one of them though.
Here is my update: This is my 6th and last month on femara 2.5. Ovulate every month on it, just like I did before taking it, but no success obviously. We are not doing IUI or injectables this month, just the femara. Also, I started acupuncture last month and will continue this month and throughout IVF. I figure, what will it hurt? Plus, our clinic recommends it in conjuction with their treatment.
We pushed our IVF start date out a month due to my work commitments, so we are starting next cycle; should be around the middle of April. I actually think the delay in starting has been good for us. DH and I have had time to come to grips with spending that kind of money. If we're successful, I'll never think about the $ again. If its not successful....I don't even want to think about that!
Good afternoon ladies! So....I'm racking my brain at the moment....I skipped taking my OPK this morning (I'm on CD13) and just decided to take one at 5pm...the test line came up before the control line did! And it popped up in less than a 45 seconds! WOW! Was completely surprised!!! I'm so mad at myself for not taking one this morning!! We did BD last night...and will again tonight and then every other day until my P4 blood work.
Anywho! Just thought I'd share..LoL. I'm just so surprised, and confused..especially because my temp is actually down from yesterday. 97.6 to 97.45 (and I even let the dog in from outside before I took it, as hubby let him out..I know..naughty..LoL. but I forgot! I suppose I'll take another one tonight around 10pm and see what it reads, but in the meantime, I'm still struggling on if we should skip BD'ing since we did last night so that he can build up his swimmers??? And UGH! We didn't use the Preseed last night either, and now I feel like we should've! LoL. All this timing SUCKS!
awwww, ring the bell and count me out! can I say im out at 5 DPO? I have an awful headache in the top of my head and all i want is a pepsi and some chocolate...smother me with my own pillow, puleeeeeese!
