Morning all

I'm Katie, 30, dh is 32 and we've been together 9 years. I'm English but been living in Australia for 8 years and just got my citizenship last week!!

We've been ttc for a while, had one ectopic pregnancy which resulted in emergency surgery and the loss if my left tube. That together with low ovarian reserves and endometriosis means we have low fertility and why we are currently on our first ivf cycle after one timed intercourse cycle and two iui cycles all failed. I am currently growing 13 eggs so fingers crossed they will all fertlise well and one will implant quickly!

Hi ladies!!!

I'm Caitlyn and I am 23. DH and I have been together since we were 13 (can you even 'date' at 13??) and have been married almost 4 years. We are ttc our first. I've been off of birth control since January but was careful until March when we let loose! No luck so far.

This month was a weird month for me. My first cycle that's ever been out of the ordinary! It was 33 days as opposed to the 28/29 I normally get. Today was CD1 for me as I finally got the flow. Took a few pregnancy tests and all BFN. I do have a doctor's appt on Monday just for an annual routine physical. I plan to discuss TTC then just to be in the clear. I am also temping this cycle and using OPKS for the first time! Nothing to worry about as it's only been 5 months (a few of which I'm not sure if we had sex very much around nearly the right time) so I'm confident it will come in time! I need to sit back, relax, and enjoy the process.

Hubby is 23 also and is a software engineer. I work in advertising but hope to add 'mom' to my role within the next year! We live in Seattle with 2 big dogs - Bear and Clark.

Good luck to all of you! Please join us - this is a wonderful group of ladies that have always been support. Thought I'm not sure why we've all been so quiet lately!

Hope to see some BFPs soon! I'm so excited for those we've had and I'm feeling confident about using OPKS and temping. Then I'll finally know when I O and won't have to worry anymore.

Have a great weekend everybody!

Hi again ladies!

Well my name is Lisa I am 24 but turn 25 in about a month. I have been with my Husband for 6 years now and we have a 4 and a half year old Daughter and a 2 year old fur baby :)

We had no problems concieveing #1 but we have been ttc #2 for 3 years and 7 months. In 2011 we did finally get a BFP but we found out we had a blighted ovum pregnancy at 13 week scan.

No bfps since and we are now under the care of the infertility clinic - results from our tests in a few days... eeek!

Today I am CD30 and my boobs are sore, the joy of pmt haha we NTNP this cycle as we had the HSG test and it left me a bit uncomfortable so we haven't done much baby dancing at all

My name is Sabrina, I am 33 years young and I have been married to my DH for 16 years in November, we ahve been together since I was 16. he is my best freind and my soul mate, we do practically everything together. We have been ttc #4 since November 2011, we have had no BFP's. My other 3 babies were conceived with no problems what so ever (we were very lucky), this time we believe our time will come, we just have to be patient, we have decided to stop ttc in December 2012 if we do not get our BFP by then.

This last month we have both started healthy eating and both lost amazing amounts of weight, I have lost a total of 20lbs in 4 weeks and DH lost a total of 23lbs. I am also taking vitamins, Agnus Castus and drinking Green Tea. I have pretty much cut out all caffeine except one cup of regular tea with my porridge in the morning.

We weren't supposed to be ttc this month because we have way too many birthdays in April, but we had a heart to heart and decided that if it was going to happen we wouldn't be disappointed in any way shape or form and luckily this was decided just before ovulation, I am not sure when or if I have ovulated yet, but we will continue to ttc until I am sure I have ovulated.

Very excited, I just hope we can make our dream BFP our reality.

Eep just had a call from the clinic. My estrogen is 14000 so no more gonal f shots, another blood test and scan tomorrow but they are fairly sure I'm good for trigger shot on tuesday and egg collection on Wednesday!! Dh should be coming home on tuesday and back to work on Thursday so maybe transfer next Sunday!!!!!!!!

I def feel like I have a load of golf balls shoved down my pants! It's like I need to pee without needing to, the pressure rather than the urge.

ooh kruchie good luck with the egg retrieval :) will they take a few and freeze them or do you have to do another round of injections for another retrieval should ivf attempt 1 not work?

I am sure you will get your baby soon :)

Exciting stuff!!!

Krunchie, how exciting, I have everything crossed for you. Good Luck hun.xx

Where is everyone????

bah, just lost my last post!!!

but basically, lots of eggs growing now! i think about 10-15 per ovary! and i can certainly feel it! so weird being this uncomfortable yet excited about it too!

elle- didnt realise your name was Lisa! seems weird now because i've been calling you elle assuming it was a name rather than just nick name! yes, they will extract as many as possbile, fertilise as many as possible then reinject one and freeze the rest so i can just have a frozen embryo transfer (FET) next time rather than the whole shabang again. and we can use those eggs for any further pregnancies too if we want more than one child

i'm a bit bummed ladies...

just had the results of this morning's blood test and turns out I am on the verge of hyper stimulation. This means my estrogen is very high (16000) and I have over 20 eggs growing.

This means that after the egg extraction (which is a def for Wednesday now) instead of fertilising my eggs for 5 days then implanting one straight away, they will fertilise and freeze them all till my next natural cycle because the after affects of hyper stimulation are felt after the egg extraction and can make early pregnancy really bad.

i know its not a failed cycle but im bummed i cant have a freshie inserted straight away.

but there is still some hope. I have to have another test in the morning and if my estrogen isnt too much higher, it might be ok

and three of the eggs are probably going to be too big to use so that brings the count down a bit.

and the DR just wants to warn me that might be the case as she is going to wait and see what happens during the retrival. She might think I will be fine with a dose of a drug that brings down the side effects.

fingers crossed that next monday I get implanted!

Hey Ladies!

It been awhile :) Im trying to stay positive right now but I am struggling with the realization that I may be experiencing a miscarriage as I type this.

Im Amber 28, and DH is 29. We have been TTC since he got back from Iraq and after my back injury healed, for a total of 6 months.

I just got my first BFP Aug 4th, the morning of my BFF's wedding. I decided to wait a week so I could come up with something creative to tell my DH.

I finally told him yesterday morning, and talk about jinxing myself. I started bleeding around 6pm last night. Its now 25 hours later, and my bleeding has increased, is bright red with some small clots, and Im starting to have AF type cramps (the kind you need ibuprofen for).

I called the OBgyn this morning and they have me going in tomorrow at 10 for an ultrasound and labwork.

Im totally saddened.

Hope everyone else is doing well with their cycles this month.

Armywife, I am so sorry, I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is just some random pregnancy symptom, tey not to lose hope <<<Hugs>>>xxx

Lisa, Good Luck, I hope everything goes well, I shall be thinking of you.xxx

Krunchie, I am so glad that you can go ahead in a few days, how exciting!!!! Good Luck.xxx

AFM, Nothing new, I am pretty sure I ovulated on cd17 or 18 (lots of EWCM from cd15-cd19) and we bd on cd15, 17 and 19 today is cd 21 and I will bd tonight as well, just to be sure. This means I have O'd earlier than usual (usually cd 22) I am hoping that means the Agnus Castus is working already.

Now on for the 2WW, Fingers crossed it flies by, I am going to see my Dad for a few days at the end of the week so I won't be around too much.xxx

Baby dust and sticky dust to all.xxx

Well the results are in!

Semen anaysis - normal
FSH - normal
HSG - normal
Ultrasound - normal, one tiny cyst - doctor not concerned

I don't ovulate or as my doctor described it my egg doesn't POP lol!
He offered me Clomid, he said he would give me the prescription straight away... then he said there was a chance of twins or triplets at which point my DH almost fell off his chair. Upon seeing his reaction the doctor changed his mind and gave us a leaflet to take home and read about Clomid. He sadi he'd write to my doctor saying to give me clomid on prescription if we decide to use it.

There is a 10% chance of twins and a 1% chance of triplets. I don't know what we will do my DH seems freaked out. But his is pleased his Sperm are ok

My DH and I have been TTC (my) #2 (his) #1, for 2 years and 9 months. My DD was 5m old when I met my DH. This journey has been long and hard and emotional and disheartening all at the same time. Every month hoping for BFP every month AF shows up. Never had a positive test. DH has been tested he is fine. It's me, which doesn't help the situation.

In May 2012 started Clomid, which I did 3 cycles, this month 1st cycle on Femara. Now in my TWW, AF supposed to show up Saturday. Took HPT 9DPO, BFN, but hoping that it was just too early.

Have had a ton on symptoms this month, and the big one is my dogs won't leave me the hell alone!!! They are BOTH all up on me all the time, WAY more than normal, so I'm REALLY hoping that's a good sign. That's been for about a week now.

Baby dust to all, we are all obsessed crazy women ;)

Strange question for ya: I just discovered that my right nipple is leaking!! Has this ever happened to any of you!

Reply by ellekayejaye » Aug. 14, 2012 11:58am

deeddragen - I had this, my doctor did bloods and turned out my progesterone level was too high. I hadn't breast fed in over a year at that point and I wasn't pregnant.

From being pregnant once before I can say that nipples don't usually start leaking til about 20 weeks +

You might want to mention it to your doctor so they can check you hormones and the fluid from your nipple to check for infections. I also had to have an ultrasound on the breast to make sure there were no tumors.

Good luck
