I hear you Snow. Another BFN for me this morning too (SMU - I forgot to test when I woke up for a groggy pee at 7am!). I'll give it one more shot tomorrow AM for Fathers Day and then call it quits. I'm pretty sure SOMETHING would show by now.

I know we've only been trying for 6 months, but I suggested to DH (planted the seed) that maybe if this continues to be a struggle he should get tested... he wasn't against the idea, so that's half the battle.

I can't help but feel that since it was so easy the first time (CP on my first month TTC) that something is "wrong" now. I didn't go to the Dr after the CP - in my mind, there's nothing they could have done anyway - but now I'm worried that something isn't right as a result. Is that possible? We're timing everything, having lots of BD leading up to (presumed) O.... unless I'm ovulating later than I think and we just aren't BDing for long enough into the cycle... we usually hit CH15/16 and burn out. Maybe I should wait until closer to the magic day, instead of wearing him out too early (it's a battle to get him into "baby making sex"). Maybe a CD13,15,17 strategy is better than an 11,13,15..... Anymore than that seems to put him off.

ARgh...

Hmmm. You got me thinking Baby Hopes. I am starting to wonder if maybe my miscarriage did something to me. I opted for the Cytotec (pill that makes you miscarry). I had to take multiple doses over a course of a few days... It didn't work for me like it works for most. I wonder if it did something to my fertility somehow.

Maybe doing a round of different days next cycle might work for you. It's worth a shot ya know!! What's the worst that could happen - you get PG!! My Dr. said to do 12, 14, 16... We have been basically BDing every day from 10-17!! I am thinking of doing every other day next cycle in case hubby does have an issue - it will give his body more time to replenish itself. We have never done that!

Wow - you can get your man going 7 days in a row?? As soon as mine realizes were in "the window" he digs in his heels.

They say every other day is better, as it takes more than a day for the swimmers to mature... So if you're using new soerm daily it might not be as developed? If only I could remember the details of that reproductive anatomy course I took in Uni!

Can't hurt to try something new anyway is what I'm doing isn't currently working.

Saying a prayer for tomorrow morning. Had a mini meltdown with hubby tonight - we were arguing that he finds I'm always "angry", where in reality I'm sad and he doesn't see the difference. I think I may have finally gotten him to empathize a bit with the pain I'm experiencing. I totally understand how some marriages don't survive infertility - the stress and anxiety and sadness and pain is ridiculous, and so hard to articulate to unsympathetic men...and we're not even that far in.

All the best to you ladies this weekend - whatever you may be up to!

Remember healthy couples on average are able to conceive within 4 x months (25% chance a month). Therefore you need four months of everything being cleared and at normal levels. No harm getting DH tested, sometimes it's the not knowing that's worse.

Well babyhopes and snowflakes BFNs all round. Think AF should come tomorrow for me. Blech Blech Blech

Hi ladies,

I just wanted to say hello, apologise for not messaging, and to say that I often do think about you and hope that you all become pregnant very soon.

I'm now 12 weeks 2days - dating scan on Fri which is the next step but due December 29th according to my dates and a previous scan. I got pregnant first time, but paid in other ways - I have had Hyperemesis (severe nausea and vom - sorry!) since week 6 and was in hospital for while. Now on meds for it at home. Little by little improving but still hard to feel ill day after day. Any how i'm just a rare case - most women get normal sickness so don't worry!
I think getting pregnant 1st time for me came down to these things:
1. Having lots of sex. Sex everyday running up to fertile time and often twice a day.
2. Ovulation smiley face sticks confirmed surge
3. Orgasm after OH every time - apparently draws Sperm into cervix nicely!

Keep positive girls. xxx

I'm out
On to cycle #7, and a call to my GP. I don't know what/if they'll do anything, but at least then I can feel proactive. I know some places say you need to be trying for 1yr+, but others say if you're 30+ 60months is enough for a referral.

Sorry for AF Babyhopes. In the US they say if you are 35+ to go after 6 months - if you are younger than that then they say 1 year of TTC. I totally went in and at least asked for blood work done around the 9 month point...

One Bump - Really hope that there is an end in sight for you. Either a BFP or AF so you start a fresh cycle.

Torres - Thinking of you girl! Hope all is well in your world.

Yesterday was my EDD for my angel baby. It was ok. Hubby took me out for Ice Cream! Yum! My fav! So that was nice. I so can't wait to see the FS - I am so ready. I know I am out this month but Dr. wants me to continue taking my Progesterone til 16dpo (how annoying!!) then I can stop and AF should be here Sunday most likely.

Busybee I'm glad everything with babs is going well, rubbish that you have to be so ill though

Babyhopes. This is tough. Although AF isn't in full flow I have preliminary bleeding and cramps. I am 99% sure that it will come into effect over the next 24 hours.

Snowflakes. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to go through this. I'm glad your DH treated you well though.

Sounds like it's time for the big guns for us ladies then. I expect my blood results by this time next week. I have my fx'd I don't need to wait any longer.

I refuse to let go of my recently re-acquired PMA though. I can do this, even if it is with help. I was born to be a mum, and am sure that something can happen within the next year now that testing is under way.

We all need a little...no a LOT of

Hi ladies. Sorry I've been quiet, just trying to sort through some things in my head!
I'm sorry that everyone is out this month, but at least we're going through it all together! AF got me on thursday. I'm thinking I may use OPKs this month. We'll see though, this ttc is really messing with my head! (as I'm sure it is with all of you!)
My daughter is still talking away about being a big sister. She still sometimes asks if I have a baby in my belly, but she doesn't ask anymore questions when I say "not yet."
Onebump - never let go of your PMA! You will be a mom one day, I know it.
You all are going to be Moms, and great ones at that!
