Ladies I need to admit I support of evaded the truth yesterday.i'm very very superstitious and on cd9 I had a positive wondflo. Yesterday I had three more positive wondflo and a positive super drug test.
This morning it was backed up with a positive cb which started I am 1-2 Weeks pregnant.
I am very very pleased but unbelievably nervous as I am only cd 11.
I rang the doctors who state I can't go in until at least my period is late and I am very scared of a chemical.
Hope you all had a lovley chirstmas. Our Christmas was good, we arrived home last night after visiting the in-laws, and all the traffic that we missed travelling down arrived in force on the way home and a four and a half hour journey took 7 hours. needless to say we were shattered last night.
Welcome Hopeful to the thread. I have long cycles, varying from 35 days to roughly 42.... the cbfm has helped, apart from this month where it gave me no peak
Massive congratulations to happy
wow Jchic, a deposit on a new place - how exciting - oddly enough myself and Dh were talking about buying houses over xmas, but we have decided to stick where we are for now (we rent from his parents and its a nice family home in nice area!) i would still like to go house hunting just for fun though
I am sorry to hear that caught some of you i am expecting it too myself soon - it is difficult to judge because i did not get a peak, but i am taking day 1 as the first low i got after the highs and my last LP was 15 days so that would make due friday. I try not to symptom spot really, i had tingly boobs the other day (and one bled slightly (nipple that is) but i think i may have caught it awkwadly), not sore boobs now - the smell of tea made me feel sick yesterday - but then again i had eaten lots for brekafast and was maybe too full. I have been grumpy but that could be down to being away from my family over christmas and tired from the journey. i don't think i am pregnant.
January 1st will be a year since i took the last pill, how i hoped i would have had a bfp by now. I guess i am going to have to build up courage to see the dr in the new year.
Welcome Hopefulhoney, Firstly is there a reason your getting put on clomid, ie PCOS or is it purely to shorten your cycles, The reason I ask is us ladies with PCOS have high hormone levels which play havoc with the monitor, I constantly had high readings and never got a peak (but I'm not ovulating either so they say). I am on my first cycle with Clomid, so yes I have taken it, but I am yet to see a cycle through.
Yay congratulations Happy, hope its a sticky one xx
Good luck with getting the courage to see the doctor Dawn, I found it such a relief after a year to know that I wasn't going mad and to have help
First and Foremost - CONGRATS HAPPY!!!! You are our FIRST EVER BFP on this thread! WOOHOO! I hope you injected some of that baby dust into this thread. Enjoy the moment and dont worry too much. When is your period due so you can go to the doc?
Hopeful - welcome to our little thread! We LOVE the CBFM and honestly, if you have any questions about vitamins, ask Daisy, she literally is our resident pharmacist. I am hear strictly for comical relief!
Dawn - I hope you had a great Christmas! Remember, everyone's journey is different, so if you need to go to the Doc, GO! I am going on Thursday to just discuss options of IUI myself. I am sure once you make the appt you will have some relief
Cre8tiv - How was Christmas with the kids? Did they LOVE what Santa brought them?
Happy! Congratulations! Such great news! Did you do anything differently this month? You ovulated super early for you right?? Don't worry too much - doesn't achieve anything positive to worry. And most pregnancies ARE viable, it only seems like so many end up in MC because we are reading about it what seems like all the time here, but I think the statistic is 75% go on to be normal healthy pregnancies, so the odds are in your favor.
Hopeful, don't panic. Like I said, you may have ovulated, but the monitor just didn't pick up your peak. On the Amazon website, there are many testimonials where the women got pregnant with only highs, no peak. So it's definitely possible, but hard to know for sure, unless you are also charting. Charting is so helpful - I really recommend it. AFM, it looks like I am for sure ovulating - I get peaks, and my charts are consistent with ovulation, but now my hypochondriac self is convinced I have LUFS - which is where you *seem* to ovulate and you get a temperature and progesterone rise after "ovulation" like you are supposed to the but the egg is not actually released! I'm going to ask the doc about this when I go.
Dawnlouise, welcome back lady! Sorry to hear you had such a long trip home. You sound a little down. Listen, what will be will be, and I totally get that you don't want to symptom spot or get your hopes up. You'll know soon either way, and if you have to go to the doc, you have to go - and hopefully there will be some easy fix. There is SO much they can do. I've heard so many first try clomid and IUI stories... It will all be OK and you will get that BFP!
How's it going Mrs. B? Creative? Hi Jchic! Sorry if I missed anyone.
Nothing new going on for me. AF is still here, heavier than last month. Counting down the days til my appointment!
Thanks Ladies for your encouragment and support. - I am sure that when i do make that appt for the dr's all will go okay, its just the making it part i struggle with. DH and i keep thinking we will just give it one more month, but one more month necver comes (if you know what i mean) and before you know it another month passes - i just need to be pro-active. A year is not a long time in the grand scheme of things but with my cycles being pretty odd i think the dr's are the next step...... Thing is work do not know we are ttc - they think i had been trying previously for 9 months and then i told them stopped because i was in a new job, but of course we did not stop trying - work not knowing is not a problem yet, but could come one if we need time off for medical appointments etc.... oh well, guess i will cross that bridge when we come to it.
The way our Dr s practice works its I need to take in a urine sample tomorrow and see the mid wife next Wednesday.
After that I won't see her again until week nine. ....
I did lots this month differently.
1.I used cbfm for second month.I ovulated super early on cd eleven.we bd every other day on low days, every day on high and peak and every other on low days for about six days.
2.we used artificial insemination this month as my husbands psoriasis was so bad he couldn't bd.a used a sterile syringe and cup.its not ideal or perfect but needs must.
3.I stuck my bum under a pillow for as long as physically possible after.and just read a book.
4.I took a pre natal every morning and a fish oil and b 50 every tea time with my meal.
5.during the two week wait I had a couple out very small glasses of red wine.very small.
6.after reading up on Chinese medicine I wore socks all the time, even in bed add they believe the feet represent the uterus and cold feet equals a cold uterus.
7.I ate nuts and seeds every day on my breakfast cereal
8.last but not least........ever day twice a day as well as my usual prayers I did a novena, a catholic petition .I prayed to st Gerrard and st Ann the infertiliy saints and a extra prayer twice a day to the virgin Mary.I figure Christmas was the most holy time for births and she would understand.oh and I also Dodd the today regularly
I think the prayer and rosary helped me stay really calm and stopped me stressing out.its still such early days, i'm not worrying about out all going wrong i'm just realistic that its very early days.
