We are on the same cycle Pix. I am 9 DPO and the waiting is killing me. I wanted to wait till Sun but don't think that will happen and test tomorrow first thing, because I'm neurotic, LOL. Best of luck to you and everyone here, fingers crossed!!!

treats and pix... I'm 5 DPO and it's killing me to test! I feel like I'm having all kinds of symptoms... crazy vivid dreams... woke up at 3 a.m. wide awake... starving all the time... and very bloated! Then I swing to the complete other side and think there's no way I'm pregnant and I must be imagining the symptoms or just making them happen from the stress of wishing I was?!?!?!?! Any of you like that? I'm planning to wait til Wednesday morning to test... will be 10 dpo... think that's enough?

Hi ladies,

just checking in... Hoping to see lots of BFPs this cycle!

angel... I am glad you're having a great time and can destress!

AFM: I am not TTCing this month (how ironic!) in fact, I have to have protected IC until after O. I have decided to do the same IVF protocol as last time but sans BCPs prior and so I have to take a Lupron depot shot on CD21.

Since this medication can cause miscarriages or have serious negative effects on a fetus, I can't risk it. In addition, CD21 would be too early to see if I'm pregnant. So, we have to prevent this time and I am starting my stim meds at the beginning of September for my 4th and last IVF attempt (at least with my own eggs).

So, more waiting...

keeping y'all in my thoughts and prayers :)

Toronto-this was exactly what we needed, definitely destressed. I didn't bring any of my stuff and was having so much fun, didn't even really think about what my body was doing. Although still some nauseau and my girls are seriously sore, so will just have to see. What got me a thinking on it again, the girls wanted to go see a palm reader (just for fun) and I'll be darned this woman knew things that there is no way she could possibly know, and even guessed that we were trying to have another baby and said that she does see another baby in our future. of course hubby and our daughter thought that was all cool, until when the psychic was telling me certain things about my personality and past, that I needed to start saying "No" more often, so whenever my daughter has asked for something, I just tell her "NO" and of course get the "MOOMMMYYY...." well that's what the lady told me to do. LOL Anyways, getting ready to start packing up and head back home here in a bit. AF is due Wed. so will see what my temp is Sunday morning and what happens, our chances this mth are slim, but with God all things are possible if they are in his plan for us.

Been MIA for a bit. Having a wacky cycle for sure . Af was due around the 24th of july but no show and then about 2 days later i started brown spotting that last 6 days off and on. Been testing almost everyday with a Started taking opk's as well because maybe just maybe that was af. Never had that happen before though so I'm so confused! I just got tired of the charting for that cycle and started a new one from when the spotting started.
Decided to start vitex again to see if that would bring on af but so far no luck.
Hope all you ladies are doing good. Looking forward to seeing some

Hi all

We are both in our 40's, me 44, he 47. We have been TTC since December and was finally successful but miscarried in July at around 7 weeks. We both realised that we desperately want a baby of our own (we have 5 between us)...so this is the start of our journey TTC.

I hope to get to know all of you over the coming months and we can all share our excitement of BFP's and eventual healthy pregnancies and beautiful babies

Congrats, pixandpoetry! Hope it sticks!!

Welcome, kazsbean!

I've been out of town - also in Florida, but on the other side. AF arrived in time before we left for me to be able to do a day3 scan, but since I was out of town for cycle days 5-12 and wouldn't be able to do the saline sonogram this month, I pushed everything back a month.

I'm 40 and DH is 52. We've been married for almost 6 years. He had a vasectomy, but we couldn't afford to reverse it until last May. We have been TTC for 13 months. We have not had anything tested - not me, not him. We are trying to conceive naturally. I believe I had a CP last August, but lost it about 5 weeks.

We've been using PreSeed, but now after reading all of your posts, I'm going to try Vitex and B-6/B-Complex and maybe more.

I'm currently 9dpo. Very few symptoms. Last month I was positive I was prego b/c my bbs felt so different than in the past (sore npples and very large). Not the same this month; slightly sore bbs, some tightening in my lower abdomen. But, I have a stuffy nose! I also had some indigestion and I'm noise sensitive - or I'm just irritable (I can't stand my dad's whistling - he and my step-mom have moved in with us - not good for baby making!!! and I can't stand the sound of my dog licking a bowl with the spoon cankling around!!).

So, I would appreciate any and all prayers as I believe God can do anything.

I'm really hoping the stuffy nose - which I haven't had in years - is a good sign. :-)

I just wanted to chime in on the cassava note. I've been taking cassava supplements since January and they have REALLY helped to regulate my cycles. Before, I was having crazy cycles... some as short as 17 days, others as long as 56! Since about the second month of taking it, my cycles have been 32-35 days. :)

Just be careful where you buy it. There are a couple sites that sell it that come off pretty shady. You can get some GOOD cassava supplements at www.cassavashop.com and if you google it, I'm pretty sure there's a coupon code!

Congrats Pixs I'm so excited for you!!! I had a BFN this AM, I'm disappointed and discouraged but Pix you increased that a bit. I'm due for AF tomorrow so part of me just wants to let it go and another part wants to keep going. I guess time will give me the answer. Many blessings to everyone!!!

Hi Ladies Ive been MIA for a bit busy with a part time job that allows me to pick up extra hours, if you remember I got laid off in May and its been a bit stressful financially but I have been trying to catch up and I see congratulations are in order for Pix thats a dream come true
I will be praying for you to have a and I will continue to pray for all of us to get our BFP. I have to admit I had fallen off my baby making train but I started taking Soy Isoflavones this cycle and my 5day taking it was yesterday. I took it on days 3-7 so please help me pray for a bfp, I did research quite obsessively and like clomid read some great and not so great things, more great things on days 3-7 so here I go Im also going to be using softcup and preseed and ofcourse my prenatals and folic I didnt want to over kill with all the other supplements so then I know what worked and what didnt. Fingers crossed and lots of prayers for all of us. Have a great day.

i am waiting til Wednesday to test when I will be 11DPO I don't think I can wait any longer! I'm hoping that I've been having lots of symptoms but it may just be hormones from having the mirena removed that I'm not used to so we will see. Great to see the two BFPs on here! It gives me hope! I hope the two of you will keep the rest of us up to date. Til then... prayers for all of us :)

Pixandpoetry... Congrats on your BFP!! Pretty amazing!

Everyone else waiting to test: Good luck!! We need the positive vibes!!

AFM: Had a picture-perfect temp chart so far (for me), even with a significant pre-o dip (from estrogen rising together with LH), which I interpret as my cycle and hormones being back to normal and I almost regret not having TTC'd this month :( Oh well, now I am telling myself that balanced hormones are a good starting position for my upcoming IVF and this one is going to work!
