Rdy- havent seen you in ages! hope youre doing ok hun. hang in there! i cant remember what your story is, do you have regular cycles etc?
Mrsbea-hope you are doing OK. out of curiosity, has your gp suggested metaformin or clomid to help TTC? I understand that people with PCOS may be prescribed these meds to assist ovulation. Also, on the thyroid front, have they suggested anything with this? Another pal here on the forums said her docs are thinking of giving her HRT.
I've just been trying for around 5 months. Just seems like forever. Hoping this is the month for us both!
hutchess- sorry to hear you had a mc last month. but you are right, the good news is that you can get pregnant. i hope that this is the month you get another bfp and you have a happy and healthy 9 months!
mrsbea and rosered- you go get those bfps thyroid chicks! rosered, sorry to hear of you mc but fingers crossed you will hold your bouncing baby in your arms soon! question- how does your thyroid issue affect ttc?
kyoun and rdy- hang in there!
outta curiosity, has anybody gone for fertility tests etc?
To be honest, with all my concerns about my weight and blood sugar levels, I haven't given much thought to my thyroid, as it's well controlled my medication at this point, and has been for years. Here is a quick explanation, though:
Looks like thyroid function, like all the other bodily systems can become over-taxed and malfunction during pregnancy, even in women without a pre-existing condition. I have blood panels run every 3 months for diabetes anyway, and thyroid function is evaluated in those as well. I'd say that if you don't already, you'll want to ask for a regular reading of thyroid function as well, MrsBea!
I'm 9dpo, trying to hold off testing until 12dpo--feeling so antsy! I had some very promising signs after ovulation, but now they've tapered off, I'm afraid. I did break and buy a cbfm on ebay this month, so I will content myself by knowing that ven if it's a bfn, at least I'll get to put the monitor to good use.
Hey ladies, feeling low so here I am. quite depressed about not having a bfp yet. Real low point.6th month of proper trying. Wondering if somethings wrong and if so, what and can it be fixed. Almost everybody I know got pregnant immediately or in first three months of ttc. I'm trying everything i can, still no baby. Seeing my doctor on Thursday for blood and scan results ( I was suffering from pain). I dpnt know what to expect. If all ok, hurrah, but is it really? Why no bfp then? Sigh.
Oh mk8 sorry your having a low day. This ttc malarky is emotionally draining at times and it is soooo hard when all your friends are pregnant or have kids already.
I know 6 months feels like an eternity but you will get there. Only 60% of people get pregnant in 6 months but 85% get there in 12 months and I am sure you will appreciate it so much for all the effort you put into it, I know I will.
I really hope your tests come back clear, are you temping do you definitely know you are ovulating on the day you think?
