No news for me...just in the 2ww limbo. I go for my progesterone check tomorrow to confirm ovulation. It was weird timing so I'm hoping we covered everything, but I dunno.

How did everything go with you?

How did the Progesterone test go?

I went for my CD4 u/s and was given the go ahead for cycle 2! Finished my Femara yesterday and now waiting for my CD12 u/s on Wednesday to determine when to trigger.

It snowed hard all day on Saturday so I didn't get to do my bloodwork. I was hoping to get it done today and I'm not sure if it will be possible. Ughhh!

I'm glad you got the go ahead. I have everything crossed for you this month!

Ah ok! The snow really hampered a lot of plans this weekend, even where I am. Did you end up being able to get the blood test? Where are you on OPKs? I also have everything crossed for you this month and so much hoping that you get your BFP!!

Also I wanted to say thank you sincerely for offering support and well wishes, and hope you feel the same on this board. TTC is so difficult, especially for those with PCOS and so I want to make sure that you know that I genuinely appreciate all of it!

AFM I had a CD12 ultrasound today and had 8 follicles on one side and 5 on the other. The largest on each were only 13 (others were much smaller), so I have an appointment on Friday to see if any grew further. We’ll see what they recommend from there, but no tigger suggestion yet.

I got my bloodwork done on Tuesday and they said 3 days, but I haven't heard anything. I'm 11dpo right now and had a bfn this morning so I'm pretty sure I'm out this cycle. I'm actually thinking of switching over to a fertility doctor. I've been getting my Femara from my OBGYN and even though it's a great practice, I don't feel like they know what they're doing when it comes to treating PCOS and infertility. I just feel like I have to tell them what to do and it should be the other way around. I just hope I don't have to wait to long to get in there.

How are you doing? Did you go back on Friday?

I appreciate you as well! I love this site and have been on it for years, even when I wasn't TTC. I like journaling and talking with people. It makes me feel not so alone in the whole scheme of things, especially since I have PCOS.

I’m sorry to hear that AF came yesterday �� And I agree that fertility specialists know how to best make recommendations for PCOS. I really like my Reproductive Endocrinologist (I have hypothyroidism also) and she’s extremely knowledgeable. I like the monitored cycles because I feel very much in-the-loop every step of the way with the progression of my cycles. Best of luck in finding a fertility specialist!

The ultrasound on Friday went great! My follicles grew and I had one 19mm and one 18mm on each side. I triggered on Friday night, which means I ovulate today. For the first time ever, I noticed EWCM this morning and got really excited about that. We BD’ed yesterday afternoon and this morning (although just my luck, DH had some performance issues), so I’m hoping that we covered the fertile window. This cycle I’m actually testing out soft cups in addition to the medication. I read so many positive stories about how women got their BFP using soft cups, so I think it certainly can’t hurt to try. I’m also making sure I hit the RDA for water because I hear it helps with CM.

Woohoo! Sending good vibes for you this cycle! Iíve heard good things about the soft cup, it def. doesnít hurt to try.

AFM: On Saturday I spotted all day then got this horrible beyond horrible migraine and cramps. I took some Tylenol and thankfully it helped then af started full on a few hours later. I also had weird OPKís this cycle and af was a few days early so I knew something must be off. I decided to call the fertility doctor today and thankfully they sent over some bloodwork. A little bit later my OBGYN called with the progesterone results and said the results showed that I didnít ovulate. Everything made sense when they told me that. They upped the dose so weíll see what happens. My plan is to do my bloodwork in the morning for the fertility doctor then go ahead with the new prescription and see how this cycle goes. If things donít work out Iíll be able to transition to the fertility doctor next cycle since the bloodwork is already out of the way.

Hey Jules! How are you doing on your increased med dose?

AFM - I couldn’t help myself and POAS last night and it was a BFP, but I think it can honestly go either way. Today I’m 11dpo and 13dpt. I go in for a blood test tomorrow because the nurse said that it could still be the trigger being picked up by the test but that it’s a bit far out for a false positive from residual trigger, especially since the test had a strong line. Fingers crossed that they can confirm pregnancy tomorrow. If the the levels are low, they’ll retest on Tuesday to confirm.
