Hi bee, I thought I recognised you too! I hope all goes well with your DHs test. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be for you. It sounds like you've got a doc that is going to try and help you though, I really hope you get some (good) answers soon. X
well it at least means that even if there is scarring, it's not preventing sperm from getting through since the dye made it through! which is totally good news but also a little tough to hear because now it's like, why is is not happening?! grrr. looking forward to my upcoming appt though!
So I've started temping again (am I mad?!) I just wanted to see if they were back in a normal range and it's looking good so far. Probably at the top end of my pre o temps but nowhere near post o, so I'm feeling pretty good about those. I'm also having little twingy cramps that I used to have around this time (I'm thinking I'm cd7 if the ERPC is cd1) Did anyone manage to detect ov straight after a loss just by using bbt? I'm not sure if I'm being ambitious with this cycle!
The hospital called me today to check everything was ok. I spoke with the lady who did my scans about TTC again (don't think I'll ever forget her voice, or face!) She said there was no medical reason to wait. Just if we did wait until after af there would be less confusion dating-wise. I don't think we will actively try, I doubt I'll ov at the same time and I'm not doing opks this cycle. Good to know that we can dtd if we want to though.
thanks les. I'm not sure how I feel about things - I'm so up and down. but at the moment I'm feeling glad that there is nothing wrong thus far and even a little hopeful
unicorn - I know exactly what you mean. I will never forget my ultrasound tech! I actually credit her the most with saving me. Even though cervical pregnancies are so, so rare, she had the wherewithal to look for the baby in my cervix and find it! I got teary eyed last time I saw her at the office. as for O'ing post loss, I've heard such mixed stories. I had never charted before or during my pregnancy, so I wasn't yet charting after my D and C. But I feel pretty confident that I O'ed 17 days after my D and C due to my O pain and CM. I also hear of many women that get pregnant before they even get another period so it def must be possible, if not common, for women to O not long after a loss.... sending you hugs and hoping you are finding some peace.
Thanks bee, I'm feeling ok - ish. Ups and downs. I was reading some of your journal, my gosh, you must have been terrified! Thank god that ultrasound tech had enough wits about them to have a little look around. It must be very frustrating for you both now. I know nothing about fertility testing but it surprises me that they don't test men earlier. I mean it's a fairly easy test right? Correct me if I'm wrong, but you've had months of tests and all clear but your DH hasn't been tested yet? Hopefully all will be great with him but how come they don't rule that out earlier on?
I spoke with DH about trying again and we won't be this cycle. Which is fine, I think I'd prefer not too. I was hoping we might get back to dtd in a couple of weeks though. I don't want it to become something we're nervous of, does that sound silly?! Maybe if we know it's after o we'll feel better about it? Knowing that it won't lead to anything - it feels so strange saying that, when really what we want is the opposite. Argh such a confusing time! But DH is still struggling a bit and can't face trying again just yet, guess it's still early days.
My fertile window starts tomorrow, and as I wrote in my journal, I cry when I think about it. I feel ready, but getting back to trying doesn't feel the same at all. There's still a sadness deep in my soul. I think it will feel better as we go though. There's gotta be some hope in there somewhere to warm things back up again.
My temps are doing some strange things, but the last two days I probably didn't have 3 hours of uninterrupted sleep beforehand. I haven't started opks, but I figure it's far too early anyways. Had a nice 5 day AF and now just spotting. We'll know by end of month if it's on to the next cycle or if it's back in the unknown zone of pregnancy. Hope once things get started I enjoy O time again. Here goes nothing!
