This kind of cycle is normal for me, I went 3 months without AF in 2010 but my gp said it was normal, it is usually about 6 weeks though so this cycle is exceptionally long. My last loss when I started bleeding my hcg was 12 aswell, my gp said that a HPT wouldn't be positive with that number implying I was imagining things, but I didn't have the blood test until 4 days after my positive test, I got my first AF 34 days after my last loss. I had ov signs on 2nd April so I'm thinking maybe end of this week af might show.
I haven't tried the tea yet, where do you get them from? I am giving the agnus castus a go and I have been on pregnacare conception since January.
Lexi wow just checked your chart and you defo have it covered this cycle! Whoop whoop have a good feeling about this cycle hun. Hope its your sticky bfp! GL and baby dust
Sooper temp rise!!!! whooooo test hunny test! FXed hope this is your bfp!
Beach good luck for next cycle and thanks for the info about the hsg. I am trying to get it done asap. I wanted it done in May so we can start again in June and like you said some conceptions in the same month as the hsg end up being ectopics and i certainly dont want to go through this again. I hope AF comes soon as my hcg drops low enough so i can get the test done asap! if i dont get AF until June it'll mean i will have to push our ttc date back huff well hopefully not!
Kat how are things hun. Hope all is well.
Lady how's the shopping going?
NSN hope all is well and you are enjoying your pregnancy now x
Thurl welcome to the thread the ladies on here are one (or many should i say) in a million. I am so sorry for your losses and hope you get a sticky bfp next time around. Hope AF comes soon too.
Wookie how are you hun? Thank you for your supportive words too x x x x x
Thank you Beach and Lexi for checking my chart, I so hope you are right! This is such a flipping rollercoaster isn't it?? I got another bfn this morning, will stock up and get some more hpts! Oh I hope to get a good result this week...
Lexi I hope this month is your month! So easy to symptom spot isn't it, it's been driving me mad!!
Thurl, use Fertility Friend, the online temping chart, if you do use the thermometer you've got. I hope AF arrives very soon for you x
Thank you Patiently, I hope so!! I hope you can get your test booked in soon and that you are able to move on with everything v soon. Do you think you'll seek out a new counsellor? I hope you can see someone that helps you and we'll also be here for you xxx
Lexi i was right last time wasnt I!! Lets hope I'm mystic meg again this cycle! I really have got everything crossed for you! Cant wait until we can all start discussing baby topics rather than ttc, Would be so lovely to go through these next few months ttc with you (hopefully its your last "ttc number 1" month) but hopefully things will get back to normal and it'll be time for me to ttc too. Baby Dust to you lovely!
Sooper I have never got a positive hpt with an IC but always get one with either FR or Clearblue! so hang on in there hun! Some people have to wait until a week after AF is due to test positive...did you spot yesterday? and back to watery cm today? hmmm that could be implantation bleeding! GL!!! As for the counsellor i dont think i will get anyone else atm as I'm trying to push all the negative thoughts out of my head and stay positive, if in the near future i feel that it would help me then i will defo seek for someone else because that counsellor was awful when i think about it. Thanks or asking though hun.
I want to vent. Been TTC since Nov 2011 and think I had a chemical PG then. Got pregnant in December & had MC January 2nd at 6wks. February, BFN. March, BFN. April...faint BFP then had brown CM after AF was a few days late. Brown CM turned into bleeding. Know it's another loss. Why can't I stay pregnant?! What do I do??
Feel so bummed.
I'm so sorry Jenny. Vent away. Have you talked to your Dr about these losses? You might qualify for testing after 3. They are early losses... Are you on progesterone? They put me on it because of my early losses. I keep reading that luteal phase defects can result in early loss. Sending you a giant .
Thanks Kat. CD5 now, so getting over all my anger & saddling up for another month of TTC. Starting baby aspirin this month...thinking that might help my lining be better for implant. I have always had heavy AF with clots, so maybe the aspirin is what I need. Haven't tried progesterone before, although have been looking into it. By the looks of my chart, I think my luteal phase is ok....so not sure if I would need the progesterone or not. I think I'll do the aspirin and if I get a BFP I'll start with progesterone supps. Hubby is on board for lots of BD'ing this month, lol. I guess if we do it every day or so then I won't have to worry so much about O day. Have you been to your doc since you got your BFP? Claiming nothing but a healthy and happy FULL TERM for you!
I get the fertility tea from drugstore.com. You can also get it from health food stores.
You sound good inspite of what you have gone through. It's good to hear. I'm fine, thank you for asking.
I take baby apirin now, but did not start until I got a BFP. The reason for this is that I read that it can hinder implantation. I have no idea if this is true or not.
I've been going to the Dr's twice a week, lol.
Hey Patiently, that sounds like you have everything under control with the positive thinking, I guess it's if/when the negative thoughts take over that chatting it through with a (better!) counsellor would help.
Well my temp is still high...I will try and slip out at lunchtime to get more tests. Although when I got my last bfp before, the frers only came up with a bfp for me at the same point as the clear blues! Whichever the brand, I'm hoping for good news but trying to prepare for both scenarios...once I've tested I'll get a doc appt to discuss everything xx
