Thank you so much. That's very sweet. I know thus too shall past but I guess this is all happening at the worst time. My edd fir my first lo was 2/13/13 I'm hoping the clomid works and everything goes smooth. From what I've been reading it helps with the size if eggs. Since I ovulate just find on my own I'm hoping it will help me get a sticky bean.
It seems there have been lots of ups and downs since I last posted!
I hope you are doing ok LilesMom ((hugs)) to you xx
MommyLove, if you feel it's the right move for you, go with the Clomid, if you're not sure, speak to your doctor and ask questions maybe they can better explain the decision so you at least are better informed and can make a decision together? I understand your feeling tired of the disappointment (((hugs))) just remember that each cycle is bringing you closer to meeting your little one xx
WithLoveMom, I agree with what everyone has said, it's more important to bd before OV day so you haven't missed your chance this month. Keep your chin up and GOOD LUCK! xx
Smiler, I think you're making a good decision. If you are worried about the stress level of work, I would do whatever I can to keep that to a minimum. Sure, money is important (especially for men, what with the role of 'provider' plonked on them by society), but it is not everything, health is WAY more important, so what is right for you all in the bigger picture, whatever that happens to be xx
Babybemine, did you get any more bd in? How are you feeling about this month? Good Luck! xx
Sorry if I missed anyone, I am thinking of you all xx
Both me and OH are pretty bummed out. He even said this morning that this was the first time he felt really down about it, that he feels like it's about time we had a baby already... that just made me feel even more love for him and finally like I'm not going through the monthly disappointment alone.
This cycle we bd'd loads at the right time and were both feeling pretty hopeful. I have had spre boobs for days now and I had really strange cramp type feelings on 7dpo like I've never felt before and was really hopeful for implantation.
However after having sex this morning I'm spotting reddish pink and have had af type cramps all day. Sure, I'm not out till I get real AF, but I'm under no illusion here, I'm not pregnant this month.... so onto another cycle!
I guess if there was a blastocyst and there was implantation that something just wasn't right and it wasn't meant to be. This thought is so much more comforting than the idea that we've never EVER conceived in this whole time. Never having seen a positive test, I am slowly losting hope that I ever will :\
On the flip side I went through my app last week, looking over all my temping and bd'ing data and realised that out of the past 9 cycles, there were 2 of them that were complete misses (no sex near OV day at all, one of which I seemed not to OV either) and 2 cycles that we bd'd 4 days before OV but no closer, so that makes me feel a little smidge better about the situation.
I think that after a total of 12 cycles of 'real' trying i.e. evidence of ovulation from temping and bding at the right times, I want to take a break. Not for long, just to stop temping, stop opking, stop stressing because as much as I try to relax, I want a baby so much, it makes it hard NOT to think about it constantly! Especially as I work with small, adorable children.
Anyhoo, I am already feeling more positive about next cycle. It is our 8 year anniversary on the 8th of Feb and I may be ovulation around this time. Also, if by some miracle we conceive this coming cycle, baby would be due around the same time as DH's birthday! Either way there is going to be plenty of BDing this month
hi disco ria, that was a good update
im grand , was just a bit cranky im fine again babe xxxxx thanks
sorry af came honey, xxxxxx hugs
if u had 6 cycles out of 9 that u reckon u didnt Bd near Ov then it isnt too bad u havent got bfp , i mean as in there most likely isnt some reason for it other than bad timing.

hi to all.
i left myself logged in all day by accident, i havent been lurking i just didnt log out properly,
Just a quick hi to let you know all good with me . Had my 20week scan -all great. We didn't find out the sex-having a surprise in June which will be nice.
Been trying to keep up over last few days but just on phone these days rarely on comp so not been replying-just lurking. You are all keeping PMA so well!
Discoria, withlovemom, mommylov, babybemine it WILL happen for you all! After 2 mc (one being a mmc) we only bd ONCE the month we got preg with this sticky bean-we'd done it loads some months but we said if it was mean to be... And it obviously was. We'd been so down I cannot say anything to really make you feel better ppl couldn't to me but just try to keep strong and keep PMA. When it's mean to be your baby -it will be!!
Smiler how are you?? How many weeks now? Thinking about you honey lots!!!!!! Crossing everything!!!!!! Katy how you doing? Any symptoms??
Lilesmom all good? 20(ish) week scan soon-it's lovely. My lo wriggled but was so well behaved-thought it would be longer than 12w scan as that's what we were told to expect but in all right positions do v quick!! Wonderful though! Cannot wait for June!!!
