I did one month of Day 3 and Day 21 (progesterone) blood testing and I had an ultrasound done at the same time as my bloodwork to check state of ovaries, a few months after I had an HSG.

I think the plan to check and monitor ovulation for a few months via progesterone makes a lot of sense! If you're not actually ovulating that is a fantastically easy fix! It sounds like your doc is diligent and will take things one step at a time! Thats perfect and shouldn't be too overwhelming!

Also exciting news to hear that you will be getting your own place again. I think its really sweet and important to imagine what your child would be like now and then. I find that pretty painful myself, but every once in awhile I let myself go there. The other day I thought about the names we had picked out when we first started trying... its probably been close to a year since I last thought about those names.

I hope we'll all get there, one way or another.

Aweeeeeee Green! They say that visualizing things you want is the first step to manifesting them. Im so excited for you!

Belle, did Femara delay your cycle? I'm 3 days late (NOT) normal. My HPTs are all negative though.

Ugh, limbo! Sorry to hear puma. Is this your first time on femara? Keep us posted!!

My doc is only doing day 21 progesterone. I guess I'll ask him about day 3 if my first 21 test is low.

Belle: How long was it delayed? Did you have to take something to jumpstart AF?

Green: Yep! I'm actually on clomid, but basically the same thing! I feel no cramping! My BBs have been horribly sore for over a week! Which is sort of normal but it usually eases a day or two before my period which is ANOTHER reason I don't feel like its on its way. I ovulate just fine on my own for the most part. Gah! At least until I took clomid. Im going on four days late now!

That's so bizarre :/ my cycle is usually 29-30 and I'm at CD 34 as of one minute ago. So....wtf. Like you, I've never been more than CD30. Of course it's the weekend so I can't contact my Dr. I'm going to be so mad if clomid screwed up my body's ability to ovulate. For you, waiting two days in limbo land must have seriously been awful. At this point we try so hard not to become hopeful!

Puma was this the same cycle you had a cyst for? When I had a cyst it seriously messed up my cycles. The first one went late and then the next one was only a 17 day cycle. Those cysts can change things around for a person quite a bit! Of course I hope it's something much more exciting for you!

You're right though at this point TTC I really do try to keep my expectations in check. Last cycle was pretty tough. I actually imagined what my kids would look like, and even looked up the due date. It all ended the same way as usual though.

This doesn't get any easier. We do lessen our expectations because otherwise every month ends in heartbreak. I allowed myself to get excited this morning and went out and bought a First Response. Of course, it was negative. This journey is so so hard.

Yes, same cycle as the cyst. She told me she was going to do a scan on cd3 to see if the cyst had gone away but I can't seem to get to CD1!
