Just a quick pop-in as we have visitors. I will come back when they're gone, for a longer read.
Pippi I'm sorry hun. I was sooo hoping it wasn't a chemical. I know all too well the dread of that bloodtest that shows levels are falling. It's NOT FAIR
AFM we got 6 eggs at retrieval yesterday, update this morning was that 5 have fertilised and we are doing a 5-day transfer on Wednesday. So as of today we have 5 more shots at pregnancy and then we are done.
Hi I am in my 40s, and have been trying on and off since 2001 when my son died at 10 days old. Was pregnant this April made two years exactly and MC at six weeks. I am not sure what I felt then because I was not charting or checking anything. I think my progesterone is low and I have a whacky cycle that is starting to sort itself out. What I did this cycle was to drink breadfruit leaves tea and try to remain stress free, also I have somewhat change my diet and focus more on fruits and vegetables.
It is a tiresome journey and lots of ups and downs, lots of changes including not taking tubs bath but shower only, lowing my blood pressure, took lots of minerals etc.
Sometime I hate seeing person with their little ones because I am childless and I am now not looking forward to any holidays that involve kids.
On a positive note, I am on CD34 and keeping my fingers cross that somewhere there is a +. however it was not an easy road emotionally or otherwise.
I am sorry to hear of your lost. First let me introduce myself, I am new to the site and join so that I could communicate with others who are having a difficult time in their journey, it helps when I read others TTC reminds me that I am not alone.
However, I would like to ask you a question if it is not an issue..I have notice on your chart that your period came at 21DPO, prior to this what where your symptoms?
My interest is I am also at CD34 and 21DPO, we have similar chart patterns but today my breast felt like someone had a knife stabbing me in them for about an hour and I am having very mild ache in the uterus on and off. I have also had a BFN HPT on the 19DPO but have been chalking it up to low pregesterone, I plan to visit the doctor tomarrow or Monday but after seeing your chart and we have such similar pattern, I am now worried that what I am thinking is pregnancy might just be AF coming.
If that is the case I think I will stop and just focus on me and my animals. This is just too much work, time, effort,money and alot of changes with no results. Please be brutally honest even if it means telling me to mind my own business or get lost.

Just a quickie to give massive massive hugs to Pippi I am so sorry love. Cry it out. No good keeping a brave face on. Hugs for your hubby too. When you feel stronger you can look ahead again You look after yourself.
PDMCD - fanny = vagina
Pieceofpie - welcome. And i'm so jealous! You're in the BAHAMAS!!!
Thanks barnibear, pdmc, maddy, garfie and misty for your sympathies...helps to know someone is thinking of me.
At least I'm not crying so much today but its a heavy awful Af.
It kinda brings back memories of the miscarriage too....
Glad to hear you getting on great with lg, Nise.
Great for the 6 eggs maddy. Hope your plans re travelling home after went smoothly and that you are n't too sore today.
Welcome piece of pie. Sorry to hear about the loss of your son...must have been absolutely terrible. No problem with questions. I had ivf this cycle and was on progesterone until 14 days after fertilisation so the symptoms I had may have been down to the progesterone and all the drugs I had prior to ivf...so don't think any of my symptoms are anything to go by. I had the feelings that Af was going to come on and off over the last 2 weeks so when I got the symptoms yesterday i was nt sure if it was really af. Sore boobs the odd time but again maybe the drugs? But my fertility consultant said at 14-16 dpo/post fertilisation I should be starting to get positive home pregnancy tests so i knew things were nt looking great.
Don't think low progesterone would cause a negative HPT.
Guess you just need to wait and see, maybe you dr would do a blood test for you...that's the only way I knew I was 'pregnant' as the blood showed the pregnancy hormone but it was too low to be picked up on HPTs.
Misty, I will trade you England for the Bahamas anytime...I am not a big fan of the heat and love the cold had a ball when I was living in Germany and Amsterdam. The only thing I think I would miss is the cool breeze from the sea as I live across the street and can look out at it from any angle of the house.
Today it is very hot, not even a dog want to be out and as much as I love the sea I cannot swim and dont part-take in it hence my unhappiness. Guess I will watch some football - Greenbay vs Dolphins.
Pippi, if you dont mind me shortening your name. I am so sorry about the lost regardless of the age once a pregnancy has happen we still mourn it no matter what.
In my birth country not the Bahamas once pregnancy is suspected a woman is given cornmeal porridge to strenghten her inside. It is said that cornmeal is the food of choice for women. Once if ever I am confirmed as pregnancy that is what I will be starting on.
It is also given when a MC has taken place because the older folks believes that it cleanse the inside and put you on the journey for another pregnancy quick fast and hurry.
I tried to end my life with the death of my son, he died in my arms at 12:30 pm, the doctors accidentially cut him and spill the contents of his bowels in his blood streams so I watched him slowly died and when he finally did watched his body shut down.
I am crying for you and want to tell you to be encourage, this is just a setback but we are all strong women or else we would not be on this site fighting and trying to have a little bean, be it the first, second, third, fourth or fifth and that in itself says alot about who you are as a person which speaks alot. I would love to hear you try again and this it will be a success.
