TTC January 14 - New Beginning and Resolutions Lock Rss

Cool thanks Beaker.
So sorry for your loss Catchoo, any loss, no matter how early is devastating. sad

Good luck and positive baby dust to the ladies in the 2WW! And to those who are out for this month, fingers crossed for you for next month. smile

*Beaker* - How are you going? I haven't had a good read through the past posts, but saw the list that you're not testing early - good strategy. I didn't get a BFP until day 33, but I started testing at day 28. Next time I will definitely wait it out to day 30.

AFM - I've been a bit quiet these last few weeks as have been in a limbo period of not knowing how my pregnancy was progressing, I was told a month ago that most likely I'd miscarry since my HCG and ultrasounds were not marrying up with my dates. Today at almost 11 weeks, I've found out for sure that it was an incomplete miscarriage, so I am booked in for a D&C on Friday. Sad, but at the same time, so relieved to finally be moving on. It's been an emotional few weeks.

I should be back on the TTC wagon in late February - early March.

amberAnn, have you tried the ClearBlue digital OPK's? They are pricey, but I've found them really clear as I personally found the line tests hard to read. ClearBlue digitals give you a circle when no LH surge is found and a smiley face when it's been detected, easy.

They are $$ to buy in the pharmacy but there's a few o/s based sellers that sell them more cheaply on eBay, around $30 for a pack of 10. We will use them again as got a BFP first time we tried them. We were on Clomid so had instructions to BD at least every second day from day 10 - 17, I just used the OPK's to know when to really concentrate our efforts.

According to the OPK's, I ovulated around day 15 the first month we used OPK's and day 17 the second, so it can vary. Keep testing and good luck! smile

Oh Chops that really sucks sad I'm so sorry to hear that. I'm doing good, bloated to high heavens tho, i already look 12weeks pregnant some days and I've gained a bit of weight. I'm heavier than ever sad i have day 24 bloods to check progesterone on Sunday to see if I Od. I had one follicle growing on the left and good lining so I'm feeling positive i guess. Have gyno appt tomorrow to see what he says about surgery if not pregnant.. That's pretty much me! And yip no testing early, waste of money mostly!

we're all here for you, sorry again for your loss x

Thanks *Beaker*. We had time to prepare for this and I am more accepting now than I was a few weeks ago. Still sucks and we want to try again soon as we can but the whole idea seems so daunting now after the process we went through to get pregnant in the first place. I am just relieved I don't have to wait any longer and we can move on. From what I'm told it's a pretty straight forward surgery.

Sorry to hear you've been feeling bloated - ahhh don't we love Clomid! I've gained at least a couple of kgs since being on it. Don't stress about your weight gain, it's been the festive season too, never a good time for weight loss! Good luck with your gyno appointment too - stay positive for this month but good to have a plan going forward too. Fingers crossed for you. smile

Sorry to hear Chops. Hope that you get yours sticky baby soon.

I've ordered a basal thermometer and some opk's off eBay. At least that way if I don't get a BFP this cycle I can pin point when I O a bit better.

Getting some decent O type pains since I got home from work so hope DH is in the mood tonight lol

Beaker- I hate that bloated feeling. :/ I'm one of those people that bloats easy so I fell your pain.
Oh chops, I am so sorry to hear this. Upset me reading this sad

Beaker, hope you get some good news.

AFM - I did go to the drs today, he did an ultrasound (on his small machine) and agreed it looked empty. Got bloods done and he rang back tonight and said yes levels very low so pretty confident I had a complete miscarriage. He said absolutely no reason why we cant " go forth and multiply"!! So adding myself back to list on the assumption I will ovulate somewhat normally!

Catchoo - Good thing to hear you can start again already!

So my specialist appt was good I guess. My score isn't high enough to qualify for surgery, but he put it down for clinical override, as he used to work with my fertility specialist and holds him in high regard. I gave him my medical history and the fertility stuff, he didn't say much about that, but said I should have surgery if that's what -I- want - so obviously feels that there is good cause to do so. TBH I don't want it, but it could be a 6 month wait to get surgery, I thought it's better that I book in now, and keep trying in the mean time, but I will be more assertive. He did make mention that I should discuss a dose increase with the clinic if I am not pregnant this month. I also guess that DH and I will have to discuss some more testing before surgery, to rule out other stuff, and maybe look at doing IUI.

Hey ladies. Just wondering if anyone has a lack of PMS symptoms? Before the last miscarriage, I had every PMS symptom uner the sun. But now I feel nothing. No sore boobs at all, no headaches, no backaches and no mood swings. I got cramps leading up to my last late period and have them again now which I never had before. Do these things change? Or could I just not be ovulating? Nothing seems to be right since the d&c

How are you all coping with this hot weather? We have just had our 5th day over 38 and have I more to go. It's so hard to sleep through the day (I am on night shift, this week of all weeks. Lol)
The kids are going absolutely crazy from being cooped up.

Hi guys,

Sorry to read about the EM Catchoo sad Likely your chances will be higher this next month smile
Beaker... hope everything is going so well. I think monitoring etc may just be in our future if I can crack NZ's waiting lists in time !!

AFM... Things are weird with me. It should be around 7 days after ovulation and I've had dull aches like period pain for a couple of days. Plus these random pains in LHS bbs in the middle kinda and the texture feels "off" underneath... so hard to explain!

Oh well.... List update!
