hey ladies, I have not been able to write for the last week because something is wrong with my computer
Anyway I just wanted to say that I have been reading the messages still and Fx for everyone in getting that BFP!
I myself have not taked the HPt for the same fear as aidensmama, I really hate seeing that BFN!! I just want to see 2 lines for once! It gets so frustrating.
Though Im pretty sure I dont need to because AF is showing her ugly face! I have been having signs of her arrival so now everytime I go to the bathroom I have look with fear of what i might find.
I wish I could say that Im going to ignore these "signs" and just try to relax but it really is not that easy is it.
Anyway I just wanted to write to say sorry for my lack of participation but for some reason everytime I write a message at work I get kicked offline.
Baby Dust to all !! FXFXFX

Hiya Jenn! Glad to hear from you, how many dpo are you? Giiiiiiiirrrrrll you are so much stronger than I am by not testing.

I am trying to stay relaxed about it and concentrate on other things, and it's working somewhat. At home I don't think about it as much, but here at work, in between seeing patients, all I want to do is research and educate myself. I am still learning new things about how to optimize your health for conception, and so I'm afraid to stop in that sense.

It is defnitely frustrating to always only see that one line on the HPT, stupid single line!!

Well my dr just called me in some progesterone to hopefully jump start my periods. I haven't had one in 6 months. The only thing is I'm not taking it until I get all my answers...I've read that it's contraindicated in pregnancy and can actually cause harm to a fetus, but I'm not sure if this is true? I've also seen that it can help you ovulate and concieve...? I'm thinking Prometrium may be the better progesterone to take but it's not prescribed to start menses. Oh goodness, confusion, what to do.

I am waiting for my doc to call me back...I'll let u all know what he says.

Hope u are all having a GRRRRREEEAT Friday! Smile

Jenn--isn't today 14DPO for you? Are you going to be brave and test?

Well, I got my questions answered and decided to wait on the progesterone for now. My doc said Provera is NOT safe to take during pregnancy and it will most definitely help me to conceive when I do decide to take it. Sooo, I'm waiting to see what the end of this 2ww will hold for me...and if a BFN then I will start the Provera. She said the Provera will help me to start my period and also kick in a surge of all my other hormones which will be a big plus and help me ovulate. So she says if I'm not already pregnant than taking that will give me a much bigger chance of conceiving.

She did tell me that the likelihood of my ovulating while not having periods is very unlikely, so that that should be our goal!....But I did get a positive OPK on my CD27..so I guess I'm confused. But I guess I will just wait and see. That's all I can do.

....trying to be patient...

Amy

I absolutely hate the 2WW. I am trying hard to be patient and positive but it's really hard. I so want to be PG. I keep getting sad though because I have no PG symptoms. I have like 5 more days until AF is scheduled to arrive. Gosh I wish they had a PG test that would work right away---like as soon as you BD you would know. That would be so great!

I wish I knew! I keep thinking that there's something wrong with me because I haven't gotten PG yet. My DH has 2 children from a previous relationship. The kids are 15 and 17 (DH is 14 years older than me.) My question about him is can men have kids and then become infertile? I tried to google it and didn't come up with anything. Just wondering.......I would think he would be pretty fertile but he had his kids a while ago and just wondered.....

Hope everybody has a wonderful Sunday! FX and baby dust to all!

Liz

Oh good I think my computer is back to normal. I was experiencing technical difficulties. So...according to the OPK I Oed yesterday or today. I think I'm in denial about being in the 2ww. I know my DH and I have been doing everything we could but I don't have a good feeling. Maybe it's just me telling myself not to get my hopes up. The scary thing about this is that my husband and I are very different. We don't have much in common and I'm afraid that not having a baby is going to be the end to the marriage. That was the main reason we got married. We love each other but we were both feeling the pressure of our age and I think if we had kids we could have a great life together. When it comes to family we are on the same page but without kids we have a very different idea about what we want in life and how we want to live. I know this probably sounds pretty sad and pathetic but that's where we are. If this month doesn't work we may be looking to seperate. I'm afraid of spending too much time TTC when all the doctors tell us it is not going to happen. I feel my life passing me by and I've put everything else on hold for the past several years. This has been so emotionally draining that I think I might just need to put it past me and move on with my life. I'm sorry if I've been a real downer today but it's so hard when I really don't have anyone to talk to. Who knows, maybe God will bless us with a BFP and none of this will matter.

Zook, I am sorry to hear that you and your DH are going through this tough time. Try to stay as positive as you both can..even though that's way easier said than done. You have all of us to talk/vent to, so you can always share your feelings here.

Liz- I know what you're saying about your DH having two kids before you. My DH also has 2 children, except they're ages 6 and 7 and so everyone's all like "well we know Mark should be able to right? Maybe you should get checked out". And there are things in a man's day to day routine that can overall, and overtime, change is fertility. So I would do some research on these things and make sure he's as healthy as he can be for you.

Jenn- I am so sorry my dear. I have thought about you all weekend just hoping to hear a different result for you! And I totally understand feeling that bummed, sometimes it's easier to just not tell anyone when it's negative because you don't want to keep reminding yourself. Well, so here's to next cycle!

AFM- I spoke with my dr and feel like we have a little bit of a better plan for next cycle. I am currently 8DPO and I'm trying to be very strong. I've been telling myself that it's very unlikely that I actually ovulated since I haven't had a period in almost 7 months, but I still can't help but hope. Yesterday I did have a TON of nausea and dizziness, so I'm not sure if I should put that in the symptom checklist or not. ......trying to be patient......lol.

But the more positive you are abd hopeful you choose to be, the less sressful this can be. I guess I'm just saying this to myself, since I am constantly trying to remind myself to choose hope rather than fear.

I hope everyone has a great start to a new week and good luck ladies!

~Amy

Hello all,
Sorry for not posting for awhile. We went to visit the inlaws...not the best place to get some BDing in...
Jenn- I am sorry about the test results. It is no fun to see the BFN. I think I used OPKs this month just so I could see more than one line on those test strips. I did read in a few places that the pregnancy strips from this website take awhile to be positive. Did you use any other strip? If it doesn't happen this cycle, I hope it does the next!
Liz- I am also a teacher and had the same plan as you! I am very very hopeful that this will happen soon, so I can take as much advantage of the time off as possible. I teach 3rd grade, which is the first year for standardized testing, so i am very worried about how this will impact my students, but I guess I have to do this for myself and my family. I hope that we both get great results during the first week of July! Maybe we will have great reasons to celebrate on the 4th of July!
Amy- I admire you for your conversation with your DH. I don't think my husband would believe me if I told him that. He keeps trying to tell me every month that we get a BFN that this was just not the month and that we didn't want a baby with any of the sperm that month. He also says, "It looks like you will have to have sex with me for another month." Oh man, I think he would be very mad at me for sharing this...sorry! I hope you are able to stay in this state of mind, and the relaxation will help!
zook-I wish you great luck this month! I hope everything works out the best for you, and I am glad you have some place to share your feelings!

AFM- I think I have a UTI this month Sad I called the doctor and she was going to give me a prescription over the phone, but since my last period was June 6th, they thought my AF was late and I might be pregnant. I tried to tell them that my cycle was long and I just ovulated on Wednesday, but they made me go in for a pregnancy test anyway. I am now waiting for them to call me to tell me the results for the UTI and pregnancy test. I know the pregnancy test will be negative since it is too early to test, but it will still not be fun to hear. Hopefully I can get some meds soon, and hopefully they will be safe.
