    Ahhh so annoying if that’s the case. So if it’s all correct and the first was positive at about midday yesterday and then negative by 4pm, what would that mean in terms of ovulation? (You wouldn’t think we started trying 5 years ago would you!!)

    I have one more injection tonight and then ultrasound tomorrow so hopefully they’ll be able to see what’s happened. All the discomfort I was having has gone today

    Well it can take 12-48 hours before you ovulate. BUT.. you have PCOS.. which means your tests could fluctuate and look positive and not be. I sometimes would get a weeks worth of positive opks and none of them were true and I’d ovulate a week after that or something. I would just try to get some BD in and then see what’s going on when you go to doctor!

    Okay, that’s good to hear haha! Thank you TB!

    Nothing I can do in any case except wait for tomorrow! I did at least manage to get hold of Lewis before he went to work earlier!

    @Steph1012 what’s the update?

    @Dream143r i figure you are about testing time, any update?

    I just had Olivia’s tongue and lip tie released so hoping that helps with some of her gassiness!

    Aww hope that wasn’t too traumatic for Olivia, TB!

    Surprise, surprise the scan showed not a lot. No dominant follicles, thin lining.. very frustrating. Gave me another dose of Gonal-F yesterday and I go back for a repeat scan on Tuesday. They are obviously reluctant not to push me too much with the meds because of my history.

    @Steph1012 so annoying. FX for better news tomorrow!

    I'm CD26 and 10DPO - BFN. My cousin told me yesterday she's preggo and due Feb 26. Isn't that magical. So I'm a salty Sally at the moment. I'm trying not to let past trauma consume me but it's pretty hard. I had a bit of a meltdown when DH left this morning to take Luke to school. I'm trying to take deep breaths and remind myself its really just cycle 1 of officially trying to conceive #2 but that past trauma is really hard to shake. So effing emotional.

    ......and exhale.

    That's so frustrating Steph! Are you taking just the Gonal F or also some kind of estrogen for the lining? Did they say how big the biggest follicle was? It's trial and error for sure, trying to find the best meds, with the best dose while not overstimulating anything. Are you still using OPKs? If so, can you take one like you always do, and one diluted with 50% water? It might be hard to see a clear difference with an undiluted sample because your LH is already high, but it could be easier to see the start of the rise with a diluted sample.

    Dream, hope it's not the same cousin who had an unplanned pregnancy back when we were all trying for #1. Or am I confusing you with someone else? Did you tell anyone about your pregnancy/miscarriage? But you're right... it really is a new start. I have a feeling #2 won't take nearly as long as #1.

    Tb, ahhh glad to hear the adjustment to #2 has been easier than going from 0 to 1! Hope it'll be like that for me too lol. Hope Olivia is doing great now that she'll have an easier time suckling.

    I'll be 23 weeks in a few days, it's so crazy! The first November baby (from the What to Expect boards) has already been born and seems to be doing relatively well. Wow!!

    Oh Sunny your memory is so good! lol Not the same cousin, her sister actually. She's fabulous, they are night and day. I'm happy for her, it's her second as well. She and I actually talked briefly about my miscarriage because I know she had one as well before conceiving her first.

    Went back on Tuesday full of hope again, and of course ended up in tears! Still nothing. Lining 4mm, biggest follicle 6mm. They have given me two more doses and I go for another scan on Friday. They might decide at that point to just cancel this cycle. I feel unbelievably drained from the past 5 years and can’t really see any light at the end of the tunnel at the moment. My husband is meeting his best friend’s newborn tonight and I know that will be a reminder of what I can’t give him.
    Not on any oestrogen Sunny because the idea was that it would rise naturally if my body responded to the Gonal-F in the way it was supposed to. I will be taking some progesterone if they think I’m ever likely to mature a follicle though.

    Steph - so sorry to hear this. We know that feeling of hope to disappointment is so real. Hugs. Hopefully there's something magical happening now and you will have good news from your appt on Friday.

    I'm CD29 and 13 DPO. I didn't bother testing today. Pretty much just waiting for AF at this point.

    So sorry Steph :( PCOS has got to be one of the most frustrating tricks your body can pull on you. If you stim too hard, you get sick. If you stim too little, nothing happens :( I hope the upped doses helps. Do you remember your dose and how long you took Gonal-F for during your IVF cycle? How does that compare with the dose/duration this cycle? I'm keeping everything crossed, as always!!!

    Dream, did you test today?

    They decided to cancel my treatment cycle. We are now at the 5 year mark and I just feel so broken from it all.

    Hey guys. It's been quiet here. How is everyone doing?

    CD16 today and I got some pretty phenomenal OPKs. HEDD would be around mother's day this cycle.

    Oh dream I LOVE seeing those amazing OPKs! Good luck!

    things are going ok over here! School starts in one more week but I’m taking the first 3 weeks off (4 total but next week is teacher work days!) so I’ve been going to my school at night to put my classroom together. We switched buildings this year so my whole room was in tubs and boxes! Olivia slept 12 hours straight with NO wake up at all.. then had 2 two hour naps and an hour nap at the end of the day. It was impressive lol
