Hi ppl, i had a little break from TTC and these boards. with hubby's low SA i just had to have a break. Anyway, hubby's taking some supplements and doc has stopped Metformin. Useless to say that i will be going to a fertility specialist and not my normal gynae for matters of fertility, as he just deducted that it was my fault and not something else without testing hubby first.....

Anyways, i'm a bit worried. I'm Cd 11 and at Cd 9 i started spotting light brown spots. i'm cramping lightly as well. this morning (sorry if too much info) when i wiped a glob of fertile mucuous came out with strings of brown to it. do you think it's something to worry about? it never happened to me before!! maybe it's the hormones readjusting from the absence of Metformin? but i already had AF last week so i thought everything was in place? do you think i should see a doc?

Not looking forward to a visit to my gynae after my last visit........

Still stalking too!

Piano, I was having issues with spotting from 9/10 DPO. at it's worst the brown spotting started at 5DPO for 5 days with AF finally arriving at 10DPO giving me a short LP

It got worse the further into TTC I got. Do you know what caused it. Stressing out about TTC. It's impossible not to though. I totally get it. Maybe you were more stressed taking time out that by actively observing your cycle
I'm sure it's nothing to worry about, the whole brown spotting thing. It could be just some of AF lingering. It could be your hormones going for a loop after the metformin.

Drink plenty of water, stay hydrated. Sex hormones are the last to be produced. If you're under stress they're the first thing your body crosses off it's to do list. Water and hydration helps you deal with phsyical stress better, helps your whole system run better and lastly helps those hormones, when they are produced in the right order in the right amount to get to where they're meant to go.

My BFP cycle with G I was doing self Reflexology to try and relax and stimutate all the reproductive bits. I think I went over the top and kind of did a 'factory reset' because CD30, still no +OPK I gave up thinking this one was going to be a kick-in-the-nuts annovulatory cycle. I read somewhere that fresh ginger tea and fresh parsley tea can bring on a missing AF. I don't think there's that much in it but I upped my fluid intake by an addition litre of water a day for 4 days straight. I was now at around CD40 and all of a sudden I found a HUGE GLOB of EWCM and I was never a big producer of the stuff. I took an OPK and I never had a darker more positive OPK in all my TTC months. I jumped DH for the next three days until the OPK was back to neg and guess what..... G's due in 25 days.
Water water water water water.

And maybe a little reflexology.

Good luck. TTC is h.a.r.d!

How's Tristan doing DHime?

to the new faces.

Hi ladies sorry i have been MIA. Nothing really new here to report we are going to do our IVF class on thursday. We are going through with IVF just not sure if we are going to do it in march or wait till april because of the weather and never know when a snow storm can hit because we have to go to dr which is about 2 1/2 hours from us.

How is everyone else doing?

Hang in there Joeys! I am rooting for you!

Well aside from fertility boosters (herbal) we had it easier than many but with our own challenges and losses. I think the male sperm production went way up with the boosters which helped my low egg situation. Oddly we hit the jackpot after deciding to wait a while and were just BDing for fun. I was still temping so I could track later but wasn't even using opk's. The day we did it I used one (opk) for s&g's and it was screaming "you just did it with the most bright line ever on accident!" I had to laugh and figured, nah... not after all that work before. a week and a half later I got my BFP. You just never know and I know we were lucky. It gives me hope for everyone. Plus getting ready to start trying for number 2 in 5 months.

Hi ladies! Dw just finished her first cycle since surgery. We are one cycle closer. We decided not to try until the third cycle because of the methotrexate. She will be sound physically sooner but her folic acid and so many others were stripped by the injection. We are eager to start but have lots to do before then. We move into our house a week from tomorrow. We are eager to get in and settled. I have spent hours that would normally be devoted to TTC shopping, planning, and day dreaming about the house. I hope everyone is well and I think of all of you regularly. I'm still here....stalkin as usual. LOL!

Hey Leah, sounds sensible with the waiting and methotrexate depletion etc. I know it feels like an eternity. After the D&C for our loss it felt like each month was like a year.
I was lucky enough to be blessed with G on the third cycle post op. We waited for AF, tried and AF arrived again. Tried again and boom. I hope your baby is fast on the heels of all this. You guys really deserve it.

Good luck with the move.

DHIME!!! Number 2!!! Exciting times!!!!
