So, thought I'd let you guys know whats going on, today I got my blue folder it seems real! Its not the scan, but its a step toward it
I was weighed, to my relief I haven't put on any weight since Sept (the last time I was weighed at docs) even though it feel like I have... I think I need new batteries in my scales as they are over-weighing me loads compared to the doctors ones! I'm going to believe theirs are correct
I have opted in for all the blood checks, the abnormality scan and downs testing. I just don't see why not to do it if the technology is there. I was so emotional whilst she explained the chances of things going wrong, that I cried but its just a massive wave of reality and it scared me. She remembered my sister from her loss at 21 weeks and the Spinal Dysplacia, so she completely understood.
I have to see the obstetrician sometime, but the midwife reckons I will only have to see them once to be dismissed back to the midwife, I can't remember why? I think its my weight.
Can't wait for my letter with my scan date now! Eeeek
Dutch! Congratulations on the bean, and thank you for the encouraging words.
Hopeful, I hope you are in the 2ww. What is your cm like?
Chicky, I use softcups sometimes (less mess after dtd because it doesn't all fall out straight away) but they have obviously not helped me get pregnant. I've heard some other women report succes by putting the ejaculate in the cup (donor sperm) or having dh ejaculate into the softcup, and then inserting it. I don't understand what you are asking about the sticks. What sticks? The CBFM ones? They are totally different from the IC opks - and they cost a lot more.
afm, doing fine just tired. Tired tired tired. This weather doesn't help. Second dose of Clomid done. Going to acupuncture tonight. Yay!
hiya yep meant the clearblue ones, having a chat with hubby this morning and he said "so basically they are the same as the cheapie ones you normally get!" just wondering if they are? x
I will catch up properly tonight, DH is working from home because of the storm and he has to use his computer and since mine bit the big one about a month ago I have none Anyways...I drank my GFJ this morning and about and hour or 2 later I got ewcm So freaking out I did an OPK and it was negative but darker than normal so wondering if I might o early this cycle??? I also have more LH in my system in the begining and so my sticks start out dark and fade to light then go dark again so it might be that too but sooo weird to have ewcm on CD9 Keeping an eye on things! Also my sex drive was high this morning, which is odd for me, as I don't have much of one But I also did have a sex dream before waking (about an ex! Yikes! Do not know why!!) so could be that too Will catch up properly later!
I have been reading through (some, there are alotttt of pages lol) the thread and was wondering if you guys would mind if i join? I just started using the CBFM this cycle, DH and I have been trying since October to conceive with IC, but we didnt have any luck there
I did get the monitor second hand, so im wondering if that might be why it is giving me all highs from CD 7 onward (lows during AF and the one day after, then boom, to high) No peak yet, but ive been double checking with the ICs and havent had a positive there either (on CD 15 today, so maybe the egg is taking its time this month)
Welcome Melly! I think if it's a second hand monitor you have to reset it somehow, not sure how (maybe take out the batteries??).
Chicky - CBFM sticks are different. The detect both the estrogen surge and the LH surge. There is a lot if info on how it works on the CBFM website.
Creative, awesome you are seeing EWCM already! Fx for an early O. Ex-sex dreams are hot. Terrible but true! Probably because it's all so wrong!
Yeah i did reset it (its like, holding buttons and putting a blank stick in so that it sets to cd1 or something like that) , so maybe it is just "getting to know me" for this cycle
welcome melly! this is my first month too and yes its probably just getting to know you, lots of lovely ladies on here have had the same thing happen, and from what ive read some have had highs, no peaks or lows and still got
