Hi Mandy,
I also had a short LP 8-10 days and I talked with the doc after four months of TTC with no positives, and it seemed I would start by day 8 or 9. I was also taking something like 50 mg of B6 each day but it did not help. The doc prescribed me prometrium capsules (yellow soft pills) which are progesterone and I was instructed to start them at 3 DPO and insert 1 vaginally each night. I would do this just as I went to bed and I could not even tell I was taking anything. THe first month I started them (month 5) I got a pregnant and DD is 18 months! I really believe they were the key for me, no question. I had to stay on them for the first 12 weeks and allthough no fun, it was absolutely no issue. Glad all is starting to smooth out and I'm sure your good luck is coming!

So finally back from our week at the cottage. It was nice having a break from thinking about ttc. AF was due yesterday and has still not showed up. So of course I decided to test today (11 DPO) when I got home...BFN Sad I really got my hopes up there for a few hours! That really sucks. I suppose it might be too early but not feeling too great about it.

Still no AF.....

Gonna wait at least a day or two more before testing again. Don't want to get my hopes again only to be let down. I just wish if AF is on her way that she would just show up and get it over with!

Ok, I've just about had it with this!!! I still haven't gotten AF and I tested this morning BFN! I keep convincing myself that I'm pregnant only to be crushed! What the hell is going on with my body! I'm on CD34 and I have always had 28 day cycles (with the exception of one 30 day cycle when I came off the pill 3 years ago). Is there any other reason my period would be so late? Does it have to do with the D & C from June? This is like torture Sad

I'm hanging in there. AF finally showed up on CD35! That was just a really cruel tease. I was pretty upset the day AF showed up but I'm over it now. On to the next cycle. On a positive note, we have decided to take DD to Disneyworld in January! I'm super excited about that Smile

Just made the mistake of checking in on the pregnancy pals thread. Realized that if I hadn't had the 1st mc I'd be having a baby in 4 weeks and if I hadn't had the 2nd one I would now know the gender by now....sigh!

Ok so I don't know what's going on with me but I'm feeling very unmotivated to get pregnant this month. We BD'd the day before and the day of +OPK. Normally I would do it for a couple more days to be on the safe side but I was just sooo not into it last night. And then I kept saying to myself, but what if I ovulated later and tonight's the night? And then my answer to myself was "I just don't care". It scares me a bit that I really don't care if I get pregnant. It use to be all I can think of and now I think I'm actually enjoying being stress free so much that I almost feel like I want this to take some more time so I can enjoy not being scared all the time like I know I will be once I get a BFP. On the one hand I think its good to relax but its probably not the best thing when I don't even want to BD around Ovulation!

Mandy, I have had months like this...I don't think you not caring really means you don't care. Give yourself a break. You have been through so much! So in part you still may be feeling defeated and like BDing won't matter, or you may just need a break, or you are beginning to have a little of the peace that comes with accepting what will be will be...that acceptance doesn't mean you don't care. You may or may not feel this way next month and that's ok too. But just take the month for what it is, and don't assume you will always feel this way...and try to figure out from where these feelings truly stem. Smile
