I wouldn't think so Karen. When your cervix opens at ovulation the sperm should be able to get into it just the same. If you have a tilted uterus too, that can make it harder to conceive though.

Did they say anything about your uterus?

Jess, I'm so sorry that you got caught up in the mess with the test bank. I think it's unfair that they are taking 50% off your mark. Were the bank questions just questions or did they include the answers too?

I'm still hoping and praying for you to have a sticky bean this time. Keeping you in my thoughts.

Jessh- I am so happy you are getting BFPs. I looked at your tests and those definitely look positive! Are you doing the beta tomorrow? I will keep you in my prayers. I have a good feeling with this one Jess.


Shea- I am sorry you are going through this. I wish that you didn't have to take the meds. Did you try meditation? I would give it a try, you never know maybe it will help with your anxiety. I know you said that it is pretty severe but maybe there can be an alternitave to the meds you took.

Kraken- When I went in for my HSG, the doc who did it said something about either my uterus or cervix being at an angle which made it just a little tough to insert the tool they use with a pap smear. The first part of the HSG is just like a pap smear. I asked him if that may have anything to do with having trouble when ttc and he said that it doesn't make a difference. Although I can't remember if he was talking about my cervix or uterus. That's all I remember. He had told me not to worry at all about that. Don't know if a tilted cervix is the same thing though.

Ok ladies on my phone so trying to answer and respond from the top of my head.

Melissa - test banks have potential questions and answers with rationales why that one is the BEST answer. Just like any NCLEX style nursing study book. So I assumed it was ok. I hope you are doing welll. Do you know when HSG will be?

Nat - 50% off my exam sucks badly. I went from an 84.5% down to a 71% if 50% hadnt been taken away I would have been at an 80%. Now going to have to do my best to succeed and pass the course, otherwise I have to wait 2 or 3 semesters to retake. =(

Karen - tilted cervix may impeed pregnancy a little not 100% sure. Have you tried IUI (I cannot remember SORRY!). If not it might be worth a shot!

Shea - I am sorry you had a poor reaction to medicine. I have a lady in my class that does alll natural proven things for healing I could give you her contact information?

Victoria - I hope you and the baby are doing well!

Hey ladies,

I'm doing okay. I've started spotting a little again, even though I am still testing positive. I hope that it means that AF is soon on her way. I called my Dr. to see if they will repeat the beta again, since my last one more than 3 weeks ago was at 298. I can't believe I still have enough in my system to test positive. They aren't even squinter tests either.

Once I get AF I have to call my clinic and then they will book the HSG for between CD6-10. If AF waits at least a couple more days to show up, my DH will be back from his two week long business trip before I would ovulate again. I'm kind of hoping for that to be the case, because then we would be able to naturally hit the window right after the HSG.

Jess, I still feel bad for you about the test score. I have to say that I am loving the BFP tests though! I am so hopeful for you this time! I have to keep sending you sticky dust!



Shea, I hope things are getting better for you guys.

Hope everyone else is doing well too!

Melissa - I am SO sorry the nightmare isnt over yet =(

This morning I had a scare my test was lighter with FMU so I repeated with SMU and it was darker than last nights on the 88cent walmart tests. I just got my beta drawn and they said it will be processed in 4 hours. So around 5 I should have results. We will see. I know first # doesnt tell you a whole lot but if it is substantially higher than any others I am telling James tonight.

My symptoms are kind of lacking compared to past pregnancies. Bbs arent really that sore (always a usual tell tale sign...) but I am starving all the time, occasional nauseous (could be in my head), really thirsty, ppeeing more than usual. And the cramps started last night and are making me nervous. Only time will tell. God is in control...

I am just hoping and praying this is a happy ending this time.

Melissa- HUGS! I CANNOT believe you are still testing positive! That is insanity! PLEASE keep us posted!

Jess - Lack of symptoms IS a symptom! LOL! I REALLY want this to be it for you! I could use some good news these days!

Shea - How are you feeling sweetie? Thinking about you!

AFM - Had another non stress test today since Annabelle is GINORMOUS (can't remember if I shared this or not). At her u/s on Wednesday she is measuring above 90th percentile for size...already about 8 pounds 3 oz (plus or minus a pound)! I'm hoping I go into labor soon b/c not sure about a vaginal delivery of a massive baby! Anyway my blood pressure was only 112/74 today which is such good news BUT there was a trace amount of protein in my urine! BLAH! If its not one thing its another. Have another appointment on Tuesday so at least they are keeping a close eye.

Lis- I can't believe that it can actually stay in your system that long! It is great that dh will be back in time, especially after the hsg. I am sure the hsg was a big factor in me getting pregnant thay very cycle. Fx.

Jess- I just have a really good feeling about this one. Like you said, it is in God's hands. If you get a good number, do you have a special way of telling James? I still regret not surprising dh but after waiting so long, I shared immediately. Keep is updated.

Hope everyone is doing ok.

Afm: Exhausted but just can't go into deep sleep. Can't even go on a walk today. It is snowing. We got about 5-6 inches so far.

Ok ladies, dr office called. I had such bad butterflies when I was on hold for the nurse. It was TORTURE! Here are results: Hcg 107. Progesterone 29.97. Both are within normal range. Repeat hCg Sunday. Planning on telling hubby tonight bc I cannot hide it from him Sunday when I need to go into Lansing to do next blood test. So debating how to tell him.

I am CD33 and 15dpo.

107 is a great number Jess!! You guys have been through so much with the losses, I am really so hopeful for you with this one! Please little baby, stick, stick stick!!

I didn't surprise my DH with this last one either. When you try for so long, or have so much heartache with losses, it kind of takes the magic out of the telling.

I'm sure you'll find a good way. Maybe get a pair of baby socks and give it to him for luck. :)

Jessh- Words aren't enough to express just how HAPPY I am for you guys :). I agree, that's a great number. Praying for you! Stick baby stick. Maybe you can take a pic of your latest test and hook it up to your TV screen if you have s flat screen. It is really easy to do with a usb cable and your cell phone but I don't know what you have. I like Lis' idea as well. You can also write with lipstick on a mirror in the bathroom. Oh and I wanted to say, don't worry if your boob soreness goes away or anything like that. Even the mild cramps. With me they would come and go when I wad around 14-16 dpo.

Or what I did (but screwed up, so do it the right way instead, lol!) was to put the test in a pan in the oven and told him I had something good in the oven for him. My DH was all confused when he opened the oven and pulled out the test.

What you are actually supposed to do it to tell him you have something good in the oven for him, and when he looks, it should be empty. He'll be confused and say something like "what are you talking about?" Then you can say "Not that oven. "

I don't think I am going to tell him til Sunday when I do the repeat beta. I think I am going to go there right from work (it won't be a full 48 hours, but it will work better that way. They will be WAY less busy at 7-730am then at lunch time). It will be about 5 hours early. *shrugs* Unless I am exhausted then it will wait.

Or I might just tell him tonight.
