Ltruns33 – We haven’t told people either. And I am getting very tired of hearing everyone else’s “happy news”! (also, many people use the ‘thanks’ button as a ‘like’ button)
HWPG – wow, you’ve been through a hard time. It must have been heart breaking to go from ttc to breaking up  Im glad to hear you are back in a positive place now.
Esmerelda- It amazing how falling in love can change your out-look on life 

AFM: Im 26, OH is 34. I have PCOS, ttc since August this year. Cycles are ALL OVER THE PLACE
Im on Metformin the last month, and we had our first specialist appointment on friday. She has given me tabs to bring AF on (Im currently on cd51) and I start clomid on cd2. bloods cd2 and cd21 also.

My main problem right now is that I had spotting yesterday and today, but not what I would call a period, so Im not sure what to label cd1. I think Im going to wait until I get a proper flow, and if that doesnt happen ill take the tabs she gave me to bring the period on.

I hate the messing around. all I want is normal cycles so I can have a little baby in my belly. I had notions of announcing it to our families christmas day. That obviously wont happen now, but I'd settle for a bfp new years eve!!

I love how the thread has taken off. I might add a test list to the front page if anyones interested? Il start with my own...

I have a few friends with PCOS, and have been with them through their journey! I can sympathize! Thank God they have made so many advances in medicine in the past few years when it comes to our bodies! Sometimes it is just a matter of finding out what works for your body!

Before last month, I never tested before af was supposed to show. Last month, since my LP was so long, I tested. Then again, I started taking vit b complex to lengthen my LP, so I shoulda known.... Silly me...

That was a very sad dark year, watching my sister (and everyone else in the world, it seemed!) go thru pregnancy and birth and all these experiences I wanted. Divorced in feb of 2010. Now I'm with my bf, and off bc since jan of 2012, actively trying since June. Each month that I get my period, I'm not just sad, but also so scared to go back thru the infertility I experienced before. Ironically, when we decided to try, so did my sister and best friend. They are both 22 weeks pregnant now. We just finished cycle six of trying; hoping for something exciting for Christmas. The end GL to each of you!
I know the feeling of seeing everyone around you having babies! It is insane how they just come in waves! I feel like every other week someone else is announcing their pregnancy! It will be our turn soon enough!!!

I would love to have normal cycles too! Even if I didn't always o, I'd take it! At least I'd have closure when AF shows up! AF never shows so I'm never sure what's really going on. Temping would NOT work for me either. Very frustrating. FX that AF shows for you soon and you can start your clomid

A test list is a good idea! I am going to test on the 14th! Unless I chicken out and wait until AF comes, which should be the 17th or 18th.
We aren't telling people either! Not even my best friend! I just cannot deal with all the questions!! "When are you going to start is hard enough!"

I wish this was like Facebook where you could "like" things! I feel like the original poster says, and a few others but this is the most accurate (snd optimistic) reply. I do feel Like some threads are "exclusive" but i don't know! obviously you brought up a good topic bc we all seem to agree to some extent! anyways! Im glad i hot on here..its like such a good way to talk/vent/search info. Its so hard talking about ttc since a.) we havent told anyime we are trying bc we didnt think it woukd take time and b.) bc pregnant people and babies seem to be popping up like weeds all around me! How long have you all been ttc? I have been trying for 8 months- 3 of which not very hard- but still seems like a long time!


A friend of mine didn't start ovulating until 8 months after she stopped BC. Where you on BC for a long time? Have you been doing OPK's?
Hey! Thanks for the input on that. I was on Ortho but only for like one or two years total in my life. Not consecutively, and with my husband we've been using protection since we got married a year ago or doing natural family planning where you avoid certain days. I never liked the idea of putting hormon into my body so I never was good at taking bc. I think I am ovulating bc I get positives on OPKs, but my dr is testing my prolactin levels to make sure. We have had 8 months with WELL timed sex, and have been using preseed AND prenatals, no alcohol, decaf (mostly) etc. Dr said we're doing everything right. DH is getting a SA too so I am super happy that my dr. is doing that for us at only cycle 8. I am a big distance running addict: but after my last marathon in Sept. went down on my weekly running mileage and before running the marathon deliberately didn't freak out over gaining 5-7 lbs that upped my BMI into a more safe range (21). I haven't been running that much lately bc of my schedule so I know running hasn't been a factor. Even when I was running my highest miles I was still getting positive OPKs and regular cycles. Agh! I have no clue what's going on! I think the biggest thing about ttc is that is has caused me to doubt my body.

To answer your second question in another post... I check countdown to pregnancy every month to decide when to test, I usually just wait it out bc I don't have a test and dont want to go buy one (small town, kids I teach and coach may be in store or working! #smalltownproblems) but about a week after O, I usually get google crazy for implantation bleeding/testing/symptoms! Good luck this month ladies!

Haha, I grew up in a (semi) small town, so I know what you mean! I know that being an athlete can stop you from ovulating, but since you're getting positive OPK's, you should be good to go! Sometimes it is something so simple!
That is awesome of your doc. and your DH to do the SA! A lot of guys would be "freaked out" to do it, so that is great he is willing to! I thought about getting a home SA kit at Target or Walgreens before we even started TTC, just to make sure his little guys were good to go!
You could always buy them online to make it more confidential and you won't have to worry about anyone seeing them!
And I 100% agree about the BC thing! I have been on BC since I was probably 20 years old (off and on, but mostly on and have been on for the past 4-5 years straight) and I feel like it messed me up a little. (not too bad) My cycles even when I was off the pill my cycles were always 28 days, now, since getting off in Sept. I had a 35 day cycle and a 33 day cycle...I know it isn't that big of a deal, but now, who knows when I could expect for AF to arrive? Pretty much anywhere from 28-35 days. Annoying.

DH is a little freaked out! But next Sunday we go! Ha poor guy he's been so supportive this whole time! 28-35 day cycles would be annoying! But I bet your body will settle into a routine and you'll be able to judge each cycle based on signs! Good luck, and I say test as early as 9-10 dpo bc sometime seeing the bfn isnth disappointing so much as it gives me closure for that month, and optimism for the next month!

I wanted to check if this was common or if I am coming across wrong on threads!!


So this thread originally began with the above post, but through it a few of us have found new buddies!!
Feel free to say hi and to add your story.

Love it! Thanks for making this
I'll just add a short bit about myself.. actively ttc for a few months, newly married
This cycle ...I am due tomorrow, had a ridiculous faint positive a couple of days ago (I am trying to figure out if it's an evap line) and I plan to test almost every day from here on out if AF doesn't show.. I'll try not to, but let's be honest lol
looking forward for us all to have a place to chat xoxoxo
