Luckybird - welcome!! Since you have irregular periods, I'd try charting my basal temps and checking cervical mucus (if you aren't already doing that). I think you should definitely go back to the doctor in April when you've been trying for 1 year - INSIST that they either investigate further or refer you to a fertility centre. But hopefully you will get your BFP before then

Update on my fertility appt: I just got back. It went well and the doctor is recommending we go straight to IVF due to my endometriosis and tube issues. Wasn't expecting that quite so soon, but I'll take it! Just have to fill out some consent forms and wait for the NHS funding and next steps (probably more tests!)

Scarlett - so the entire thing took around 1.5 hours. The actual face time with the doctor didn't take very long (we just briefly went through my endometriosis history, previous blood tests, and hubby's sperm analysis), but I had to fill out some forms and got my weight, height and blood pressure taken, then had to give urine and wait to get blood taken. So in total about 1.5 hours!

Oh wow that's great news on the IVF! How long is the wait until you can get things started with it?

Thanks for the heads up about how long the appointment is too I'm meant to be having an acupuncture session on that day too - it will be a TTC overload day!! But I think I may move that now!!

I'm not sure how long it will be before we can start IVF but if I get the NHS funding then it all happens quite fast according to the doctor - there's no waiting list in my hospital. The only issue is I'm underweight so will need to put a bit on so I meet their minimum BMI otherwise that might delay things!

Scarlett - I stopped doing OPKs because I found it a bit stressful not getting positives so I just stuck with temping!

I totally understand, opks really frustrates me too, I think temping really is your best bet!
Im good, I think. I may or may not have od... Still not sure. Hoping it will be more clear the next few days

Hello! Hope everyone is having good weekends! Ooooh Goldfish go buy loadsa chocolate and start eating guilt free! Really hope all goes well with the funding and will keep everything crossed for you. What are the other criteria you've got to meet?

And thank you both on the opk advice. Been using the clear blue digi ones so thought they'd defo be right? But yes found it all too stressful so stopped doing now. TMI alert but acupuncture and herbs defo doing something as I've never had so much EWCM! So would change my mood but now on my phone so don't know how! Guess will just have to give it a few more days of temping to see. Really hope you've had some good news on the temping front lovn! xx

Scarlett - woo hoo for more ewcm!! I've been drinking grapefruit juice, taking evening primrose oil and sometimes even drinking cough syrup (with guaifenesin) to get more! Sounds like BD time for you!!

Haha you're the not the first person to tell me to eat more chocolate to gain weight! Unfortunately I'm not usually a big choc eater so Ive been having more milk, and going to just snack more on bananas, avocado, nuts...maybe drizzle olive oil on my food. I think we meet the other criteria for ivf (ttc for at least 1 year, been together as a couple for many years, i have endo, no previous children) - so fingers crossed!

Wow you sound so super healthy, wish I was like that. I find it really difficult to eat well because I just want to stuff my face with all the things that are very naughty :S I've been eating properly for several months now though cos of ttc and I am finding it easier, but still I'd love an excuse to be able to eat chocolate guilt free!

I'll keep everything crossed you get the thumbs up then for funding will you still keep trying in the meantime?

Yes lots of BD-ing! but after tonight we'll be apart until Thursday and as I've still got EWCM and no increase on my temps I'm worried we won't be together when I finally O. *sigh* also started with a horrible cold so guessing that may bugger up readings too, and realised that when I've been drinking it affects it too. Had a night out on Friday and also Saturday before that (so only once a week) but a defo get a blip from that. Oh well am off work this week doing wedding stuff so going to try and think about that instead of babies!

Hope you've had a lovely weekend xx
