Amber I hope you get the money soon for the IVF!!! Yes I did have the laparoscopy done and that helped for a while. Hopefully it won't come back again. I have heard also that once you have a baby it helps get rid of the endo. So hopefully that will be the cure for you!

Shep I'm so sorry about your ex, what an a@#hole! You sound like you made it through good though and found someone that is much better to you. I loved the story about the car! I'm sorry about the BFN but keep your head up it will happen!

I go to the specialist on the 21st and I'm suppose to get my AF on the 23rd. I'm hoping to get a BFP b4 the specialist but next week when I'm O will be crazy for my DH and I.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Good morning ladies!! Well I am happy to report that I survived my acupuncture appointment and I really learned a lot from her. She first did a consultation and asked a lot of questions to find out my history, then she told me what she felt was wrong. She told me that my liver, kidneys and spleen were not functioning properly. She said that that is why I have bloating, cramping, clotty AF, irritability, tiredness, and that will also prevent ovulation!! So she focused my treatment on those areas. It was actually very relaxing. She used toning forks too is supposed to help the spleen function properly and help promote ovulation. It was great timing because according to my ticker I should have ovulated that day or the day after. She told me that she personally helped two people to get pregnant that had what she figures is my same problem. She said it took about 4 treatments then they were pregnant. Here is hoping FX!!

Wow, Shep, sure sounds like you had a crazy time with your ex!! I am so happy to see your positive attitude after all that you have gone through! You must be an excellent mother and a great example to your children too! Sorry to hear about your BFN but I know a BFP will happen for you.

Oh Dawn, I am keeping my FX for you and a BFP!! My SIL was supposed to go for that laprascopy too but she ended up getting a BFP before she went for the treatment. I can't be too jealous of her because her and my BIL have been TTC for 3 years too!

I hope you all have a great day! Sending baby dust your way Big smile

Well, it's there..

I still have not started AF.. I am officially a day late, and BFN after BFN..... I don't know what the deal is.. I do know, however, if I were pg I would have a BFP by now..

I hope everyone is ok..

Maggy, haven't heard from you in a while..
Dros, how are you? I sure hope you got (or will get) your BFP.. would hate to loose you, but do understand..
Sio, have O'd yet? Did you get a + on your OPK?

Velly, I think O happens around the same time every month.. Like if you usually O on day 13, even though you have AF longer than usual, you should still O on day 13.. Don't quote me, I may be wrong.. but that's what I always thought. My cycle seems to be screwed up again this month. Longer than usual LP. I know I O'd on day 13 and 14 ( I mean that is when I got my BFP on OPK), but I don't understand why I haven't gotten AF yet.. This blows, because I know if I were pg, I would definitely get a BFP by now.. this just makes the trying again next month that much longer..

Dawn, I really do hope you get a BFP before the specialist. What do you think they are going to do? What kind of tests do you think you want to have done? I think the knowledge here is very powerful for your appointment.. The women here have had so many test, you should be very familiar with what the dr is going to do, or what you want done. I am pro-active in my health, and sometimes find that we know more than the dr's.. sometimes they can be lazy, but when you know what you want, that helps the dr treat you properly..

Amber, how are you doing? Where are you in your cycle? i do have the worst ex in the world, but now my life is the best .. It's amazing what true love can do!

Hope everyone had a great weekend, and a great week.. Good luck to you all, BABYDUST!!

Dawn - Thanks, me too! It always seem to come down to money for us and of course I thinks that's mostly because we don't have a lot but we are starting to save for it and trying in the mean time Smile Yeah since the laparoscopy isn't an option for me I'm hoping to just get PG and cure it that way! Wouldn't that be great Smile Let us know how your appt. goes with the specialist!

Velly - Congrats on a good acupuncture appt! That's great! I'm hoping mine can do the same for me, I'm calling next week to make an appointment I think. FX you'll be PG in even less than 4 treatments!!

Shep - ooh that's exciting, trying not to get too excited for you yet but so far that's great! I have heard about Pg tests not showing positives for up to 2 weeks into pregnancy! FX FX FX!

I got my +opk yesterday and should be O ing right about now. I'm not as hopeful as I was last month or the month before and so on but still I know there is a slight chance... Yup just the dreaded 2ww!

Good morning,

I forgot to mention yesterday when I was talking about my acupuncture appointment that she told me the best thing that I and all of us who are TTC can do is to think positive and loving thoughts about being pregnant and she said to actually visualize yourself being pregnant and how it will be a warm, loving environment for the fetus to grow in the womb. I thought it would make sense because I usually do the opposite because I am always afraid to get my hopes up, which is really thinking negatively about it and probably partially causing the PG not to happen. I guess the way I see it is, it is worth a try. Things generally don't go wrong when you are being positive.

Amber, keep us posted about your acupuncture appointment too! FX

Shep, I am so sorry you didn't get the BFP this month! I will go and read your post in 2WW but I am glad you have a DH to support you through this plus you have all of us too! Guess just gotta keep on trying...I am in my 2WW now so will keep my FX for BFP.

Dawn, looking forward to hearing about your appointment with the specialist! FX

Shep I'm so sorry about the BFN, hang in there it will happen some day. I know how devastating it is to get your AF.

Velly that is really neat with the acupuncture and everything they said to you. I went yesterday for my first acupuncture treatment but it was just a stress treatment. It was really neat how calming it was. She is going to look at my blood work and then prescribe chinese herbs that will help with fertility. She told me to practice breathing every day and think of a white light going down to my womb and healing it and then when you exhale to push all the bad toxins out of your body.

I'm not sure what kinds of test the specialist is going to do. I'm trying to get all my medical stuff before hand so he can look through it while we are there. I'm worried that my thyroid is not functioning right but my blood work shows that it is ok. I had a sonogram done last year on it and it showed that one side is not functioning at all and the other side is over worked to keep my blood levels right. I showed my regular dr and he said as long as my blood work is fine then there is nothing wrong. My hair has always fallen out much worse then normal people but now I'm starting to get a bald spot on my eyebrow. So I'm hoping that he will actually look at this and see if it may be the cause.

Well I'm in my 1WW (I OV so late in the month the it is only about 8 to 9 days) but I'm trying not to think about it.

Shep - What I do is copy and paste in my different threads that I write in so if I write large entry and don't want to re-write everything, just to keep everyone up to date. You should do the same so we can all follow you. I'm so sorry about AF, I know just how terrible you must be feeling right now, you'll feel better and be ready to plan for next month soon enough but I know now you don't want to hear that, it's ok to sulk.

Velly- Thanks! I'll keep you guys up to date. That's great what your acupunc said. I already try and do that somewhat but I also do the other things where I stress about it all.

Dawn - I hope your appt. with the specialist goes well and I hope they test to try and figure out your short LP too. Hope it's all good news!

AFM- Got no sleep last night, our yorkies got sprayed by a skunk and we were both up at 3am giving baths and pulling all of the blankets off of the couch and the dog beds out etc. Cleaned everything, Febreezed and our house still stinks something awful! Just have to wait it out I guess. Oh the joys of having dogs LOL! Especially ones that we spoil and let have full run of the house! And just waiting, waiting, waiting during this 2ww. I have been having crazy O cramps this month!

I'm back!!!! Well kind of!! I'm in PA and finally have some internet connection!! Went to the wedding & they are just the cutest couple ever!! It was sooo nice to see my brother so happy. His wife is perfect for him and is already talking about babies. I think that would be so awesome if my brother & I ended up having our first babies at the same time. He is 9 years older than me so he is definitely a late bloomer. His wife already has 3 kids so it shouldn't be a problem for her.

Shep, I currently live in Guam so yeah thats my island. I left before I O'ed so I decided not to waste the OPKs...although I did continue with the OvaCue and got an Ovulation Over/occured or whatever it says....I just worry that I vary my salt intake too much and I mess those results up as well. My cycle is long but I don't ovulate when it says, probably about 5 days sooner. My AF is really nice though -one medium day with 2 days light, no cramps, bloating or headaches...I eat a very clean diet so I think that has a big effect. Before we started trying I was 28 days on the dot but since TTC I've been 20 days to 45 days but over the past couple months 32 has been the norm.

Velly!!!! Acupunture sounds better than I thought it would. I didn't really know they could actually pin point stuff like that!!!!! How cool is that!! I'm just worried because in Guam a lot of businesses are pretty shady and I could easily get screwed over. But know that I know how yours went if they aren't asking questions & pin pointing where they think difficiencies are then I will just leave. Can't wait to give it a go!!

AFM - I'm just hanging out here for another week and then flying back. DH's deployment got shortened so I am heading back earlier than expected. He is leaving for his next one within two weeks after returning....pretty sure that will be too early for Oct's O Sad He isn't even sure how long he will be gone but thinks a couple months Sad :( Sad Pretty shitty.

FX for Dawn!!! Thinking she will be the next testing!! Hope you all are well!!
