Maybe the move will do it for you! yes, moving is an adjustment for sure... I moved away from home 11 years ago, and still have times of missing my family dearly (especially since my brother had a kid)...but distance can also be very good for the soul, which I hope it is for you!! Glad to hear from you. Smile

Faithful: Congrats on the big move! I'm sure you'll get adjusted very soon.
Hey, sounds like we are on the same cycle; I'm due to ovulate on the 7th. Keeping my fingers crossed for us this week on a healthy and happy egg, and that the spermie dudes find their way! Laughing out loud

Hey ladies! Just checking in. Not to much my way. Just getting ready for "O" to come. Hopefully it will be our month for all of us.
Butterfly, any results from the tests yet? I can't wait to hear. Hope it's good news.
Sandy, so great to hear from you also. I hope all is well with all of you. Keeping my fingers crossed and BD to all!!!

hi Ladies!
thanks Lisa for asking!! I did hear back from my doctor... she said that everything was normal. As weird as this sounds, I was not really relieved to hear this. I mean I am, of course, but it doesn't help any... she said we have unexplained infertility. Last time DH had a SA he had low motility, and this time he passed with flying colors! my hormones were all normal too... so she said the next step would be to try clomid. Which I don't really know if I want to do that... so we're going to take a few months, go to Italy, and talk about next steps when we get back from vacation. When do you start O testing? I am starting on Monday.

Hey butterfly! I'm glad you're well. I'm sorry to hear about the unexplained infertility issue. I bought bulk opks last month. LOL. I used to use a brand that I don't think worked well. I always had two lines as if I was ovulating everyday. So I bought the Internet brand. I just started today just incase. LOL I also bbt chart and use a saliva microscope. I'm still learning all this stuff. So I'm not sure if I've followed through correctly. LOL. Bbt is hard since I don't sleep well. I wake up alot. Then the opks I've had trouble with. So now I got the microscope and use all 3. I figured something has to work. ( fingers crossed) Its so great you're going to Italy. I'm jealous! My grandmother is from there. Full blooded Italian and she can speak it pretty well still at 95yrs of age. Maybe that will be your time. You'll be relaxed and won't be thinking so much. I'm going away to Pittsburg, PA memorial day weekend. I'm excited and need the break. I know of Clomid but I'm not sure what it's supposed to do. I think from what I've heard and read thats it's supposed to help you ovulate? I could be way off. But, if thats what I had to do to have a precious little one. I might try it. I figured I'm going to try this month and if it doesn't work naturally. I'll go to my doctor and see where to go from there. I'm not a doctor person. I only go when I need to besides routine check ups of course. I also hate taking meds. Thankfully, I'm pretty healthy. Just allergies and tmj. Best of luck to you. Keep us posted. And you and I can go through our journey together this month. It's funny how things work. Ever hear of when you have a group of girlfriends that hang out together and get their menstrual cycles around the same time? Maybe we have a connection like that? LOL just thinking and being silly. The past few months have been hard to track everything. March I was sick for almost 3 weeks with a cold and really wanted nothing to do with BDing. Thats when I also learned of bbt charting. So thats when I started charting. Then in April I used charting along with new opk's and the microscope. So with everything it takes alittle getting used too. I'm not sure if I o'd last month since I bought my opks late and my charting may have been off some since I wake up alot through out the night. Ahh the things we go through. Smile

Lisa, kudos to you for trying everything under the sun! I gave up on the BBT charting, because my temps were all over (I don't sleep well either), and I seriously didn't need another thing driving me crazy (and didn't need the whole tone of my day to be set at 6am).
Yes, clomid is a fertility drug... it helps you produce more eggs and increases the quality of your eggs. We just always said if we couldn't get pregnant naturally then it wasn't meant to be... and now it looks like clomid is our only other option, so I"m not sure what to do.
I'm just going to try and enjoy these next few days before I start OPKs and ovulation madness, then 2ww craziness. Smile

Hi ladies! I'm so confused. I'm not sure if Im Oing yet or not. I used my saliva test today with no ferning. I took my opk and it looks positive. I checked my CM and I've never really paid any attention before. It's kindof clumpy but is alittle stretchy. Its clear with alittle white in it. I told dh we have to bd. LOL. Just incase. Do you think it's possible I'm about to O? I'm on cd 10 today? Uugh any info you girls can give would be greatly appreciated!!! Smile

Butterfly,
I just noticed your blog that you had wrote. You are very well spoken. I must say that you inspire me. Dont quit and dont give up. I know how hard it is to TTC. We are all in this journey together. Stay positive as hard as it maybe. Youre always positive when I talk to you on here. You give me some light at the end of my tunnel. Like Ive said before, It will happen when the time is right. As much as we want a baby it will happen when the time is right. Im the type of person that when I want something. I want it now!..lol..Thats just the way Ive always been. And when I cant get what I want. I get sad and mad and all the other feelings that come along with it. This is alittle different with ttc than as if I wanted a certain shirt, tv or computer. Those things I can save for and I know in time Ill be able to have it. With ttc, we dont know when it will happen. We just have to stay on this rollercoaster in life and deal with it I guess. Maybe god is trying to prepare us in life and with ourselves to make it the right time. I think to myself of all the bad things Ive done in life. Wheather I meant to do things on purpose or even if I didnt. I pray everynight for all the wrong Ive done. To give me peace. Knowing that Im sorry for all my sins and maybe, just maybe...god will grant me this one wish. I noticed when I pray. I pray for others. Im one of those people. I put others before myself. And I think to myself..hmmm maybe god wants me to think of myself. Do right for me so I can prepare to have a baby. It all drives me crazy. I drive DH crazy. And thats why I love this site and talking to all you ladies. It means so much to me that I can talk openly with all of you. DH sometimes doesnt understand. I actually sat here lastnight reading your blog. It really brought tears to my eyes with everything youve been through. I confessed to DH lastnight that I joined this forum. I told him of your story. I hope you dont mind. I could just feel for you. Please know Im here for all of you. I have a huge heart and tons of love to give everyone. Im sorry Im such a mush today..lol.. Its the weekend and I was hoping for a nice weekend and its raining here in NY. Im sick of the rain. Ive also been thinking of this journey and it gets me down. This month on the 26th will be 4 yrs since my dad passed away. Its hard to stay happy when I miss him sooo much. We were very close. He was sick for along time. And god bless his heart I know hes in a better place. As selfish as I feel that I want him in my life still. I know hes always looking down on me. I talk to him often and I ask him to put the good word into the big man of above to grant us all our wish. To have a precious little one. Well, I could go on and on.. But, this forum isnt about my father. I just woke up in a mood. Im just emotional this month. I apologize. I will keep your girls in my prayers. And to everyone, please keep your head up. Smile Baby Dust to all!!

Hey Ladies!! Where are all of you??..lol.. Im having issues and Im not sure what to do. Like I said yesterday. I took my opk and it looked positive. I took another one last night but, I couldnt tell because I think it was a bad opk. So, I just took another one about an hr ago and I definatly had two lines. And they were the darkest that Ive ever seen. Im trying to stay controlled with my emotions today. I was sad and glum and now Im kindof feeling excitment. The brand of Opk's I used to use like I said before didnt work for me. This is my real first month using a different brand of opks. I could never really tell when I would O. But, I think for the first time in 6months that weve been trying. I think I might actually be Oing or its just around the corner. Omg....I am so hoping and praying this is my month. I did also use my microscope but didnt see any ferning this morning. Im not sure if Im doing that thing right. Any hoo...I also noticed with bbt. on wed and thur my temp was 97.6 for two days straight. Then yesterday it went to 97.7 and today it went to 97.8. So maybe, just maybe I might actually be ovulating. This is the first time I really ever noticed this. Like I said in my prior post Could I actually be Oing CD10? This is just crazy to me. I have long periods full 7 days and normally get them every 30 or so days. I got my period 4/1 and then it came early on 4/28 again. Which is strange. But, Im hoping and praying. Wish me some BD please!!!! Any advice or anything, please feel free to help..UUUUgh Puzzled I just had to edit this twice. Third times a charm. I guess also that I never felt signs of Oing before. My stomach feels werid today also. Like gurgly almost kindof crampy. But I cant really feel them. I guess also has the feeling as if my period was about to start that uncomfortable feeling. I feel like Im tuning into my body the past few days. Or it could be all in my head..lol..
