AF is gunning for me today, BFN this morning, I'll almost welcome her this time. It's been a long week. I'm ready for an Advil, some chocolate, and then to fire up my new Clearblue Fertility Monitor. End of June sounds pretty good to me.
On another note ladies, I had the results of my scan/bloods bac and docs tell me I do not have PCOS, the androgen test they do during bloods (tests PCOS) was "slightly elevated" but the internal scan confirmed no cysts on my ovaries. No thyroid issue either. No idea if I am ovulating because it was only one blood test and to test it, you need to do 1 on CD2 and around CD14/15. Docs have ruled out cysts and cancer (WHOOPEE!) but will not refer me for fertility tests for another 6 months. Which will in reality be a year (I am on cycle 6 of TTC). However, I did tell doc I have been trying for a year after hearing how people have been fobbed off to return in 2 yrs time! It used to be a year but the NHS are scrimping it seems
So no sperm tests or blood tests let alone the more sophisticated ones for quite a while. Doc said to try to relax, have regular sex and let it happen. He said 95% of couple conceive naturally in 2 years...TWO! OMG!
Baby dust to you all!
Great news that theres nothing sinister lurking there! . Are you in the UK? My doc first tried to tell me it was 16months for sperm tests as well as women's tests & I challenged it as my Zeta West book says men should be tested after 6 months. Anyway she spoke to another doctor who said men can have a sperm test ANYTIME! I'm so glad I challenged her! The results should be back within the next week FX'd! x
Hi, I'm 31 and been tcc for 2 months. No sign yet but keeping positive. Seeing friends get bfp all around me thought I would be the same and catch immediately, although I know nature doesn't work that way!! Chin up, keep positive and relaxed, I find yoga really helps clear the head, and relax your body, Good luck to all those tcc out there x
im 31 and have my first blood test in 2 weeks at day 21, scared but at the same time hoping this will all help. Hubby goes to docs next week to see about getting swimmers checked, we have been TTC for 18months ish
Morning back at ya Rosered... Though it is 730pm here in the UK right now.
Nice to see some newcomers - Welcome!
Rosered- I hope that AF stays away and your BFP is just a wee bit shy coming out!
Gettingbroody- thanks for the wishes. I hope TWW passes by quickly too. Sigh. I just don't feel that hopeful this month for some reason.
Hey MrsG- my boobs ache 1 week before AF too. I agree- any sign of a difference is a good one. Here's hoping your beanie snuggled in there What month of TTC are you on again hun?
MrsPTTC- yup, I am in the UK but the doc said to wait another 6 months. He thinks we have been trying for a year and I didn't bother to correct him. I guess in 6 months it will be 1 year really so I think we can wait. Mind you, I do want DH to check out his spermies. He goes to another doc so hopefully they will be more accommodating.
Katkat - hope you are going to migrate to the first tri forums soon!
Purpleflossy- best of luck for the tests honey. Are they just going to do bloods on you? Assume that you go twice in your cycle? Or just the once? My doc said they test on CD2 and CD14/15 to see if the homones increased.
A question for you ladies, esp ones with PCOS. My bloods showed a "slightly elevated level of free androgen index", which indicates PCOS. However, my internal ultrasound conducted two days prior to the bloods showed no cysts. Therefore doc says I do not have PCOS. Is it poss to have PCOS but not for them to show up on your ovaries at a specific point in time? I am confused because people seemed to be diagnosed with PCOS solely on blood work.
Morning Fellow 30-ish-ers.... I'm 7, 8 or 9 DPO. Moving right along. (Hard to tell this month because I got the flu and my temps were screwed up.)
This is going to sound crazy.... and I know that before I type it. So normally a week before my pd my bbs start to hurt. Nothing yet!! Any kind of difference from routine gives me some hope.
Hopefully that's a good sign!! A girl I know on another thread only decided to test because she was having no symptoms before af showed...no cramps, no sore bbs like she normally got. She ended up with a , hopefully you will too!!!
Katkat, I'm doing yoga too and I love it but I do wonder about doing some of the more strenuous poses in the 2ww...what do you think? Sometimes I skip class during 2ww but I don't really want to put my life on hold while ttc either... I know I could ask the instructor if there are any poses I should avoid but don't really want the rest of the class wondering why I'm opting out if you know what I mean?
