Aw, I'm sorry it didn't work Reiko How is the night weaning going?
I think you and I are the same dpo Meg I'm breaking out so bad too!
I have a bit of brown spotting today and was crazy and took an IC test but it was negative. I guess it's too early to pick up much HCG if I am pregnant. I'm afraid I'm gonna be so disappointed if I'm not pregnant because this bleeding has me so convinced it's implantation.
I'm not feeling sick anymore. So just had a 24hr stomach flu. Glad that's over!
Last night I fell asleep in bed with DS and so he helped himself in the night. Oops...I haven't been perfect at this night weaning but way better than our last half a dozen attempts. Lol but this time around I can tell he doesn't "need" to nurse in the night. He just wants to if they are there.
I would be convinced it's IB too! So promising! It took 6 days after IB for me to get a pos on an IC (12dpo). DH has hidden all my tests so I'll only test if AF is late. It helps that I'm only waiting 10 days, not 14 lol.
So, 8dpo today, AF is due in the next 2 days or so. I saw my dr this morning, it became apparent she's clueless about fertility which isn't surprising I guess for a gp. She's like "days 8-14 are best for ttc" even after I said I o'd day 18!!! Also, she said bf would only be affecting my fertility if ds was under 6 months!! So yeah, clueless. Anyway she said she'd refer me to a fertility specialist in another couple months.
My progesterone level at 5dpo was 34 (this is Aust values, I think in US that would be 11 or 12?). So, I'm happy I ovulated
Prolactin was 130, she said this is normal.
My iron levels are a bit low.
I have my hopes up a bit as my cm is different this tww, usually I have lots of it and globs of lotiony cm (sorry tmi), but I am pretty dry this tww apart from tiny amounts of creamy yellow/white cm. I also felt a bit nauseated this morning and my boobs are a bit tender. I get my hopes up every month and am always disappointed though
So Wnt2beAMom have you not had a period yet and this is first confirmed o? I've read so much of women catching the first egg, that would be amazing
You should get some bloods done Reiko_ctu, it does reassure you and can pinpoint if one of your hormones is out of wack.
We are feeding probably twice a night and 1-2 times in the day normally now. Had a weird day where LO wouldn't eat anything so I think she's teething or has a bug or something, so nursed a bit more. Very empty boobs lol!
Meg your dr sounds like she hasn't read any research in quite a while lol!!
I'm hopeful for you this cycle Meg! Fx'd.
I find doctors to be so clueless sometimes too. GP do have to know a lot of stuff though and probably pretty hard to know in depth about everything! I guess they know some "general" stuff
You're doing great Reiko! I will still tag along on this thread whether I'm pregnant or not to see when you start to ovulate too! Teething is so difficult. They nurse so much more when teething!
Yes, I'm pretty nervous if I've caught my first egg! I wonder if there is a higher chance of miscarriage and things like that. Should I have let my body "flush out" first? I don't know...
After I took the ic yesterday I googled "how long after implantation bleeding can you get a POS PG test?" I was actually really surprised it said about 5-7 days! Lol So now I feel really dumb for taking the test.
This wait is killing me! Lol
Lastly, a couple days before AF, your progesterone level begins to drop and estrogen has yet another surge. This can be noticed as another more fertile patch of CM. Many women experience watery CM just before AF arrives.
Wow! OK, I did not know that your body has surges of estrogen after O. Very cool!
I'm still spotting on and off. It goes brown then DS has a bit of a long nursing session and a few hours later it's red again...
Took an ic test this morning. Still negative. I'm starting to lose hope. At 9dpo with my son I got a very faint positive on a frer. But was also feeling a bit nauseous and pinchy in the uterus. I feel pretty normal right now...Was nauseous a few days ago but that was from the flu I'm guessing...
