Let's hope so Bammom, let's hope so

The fact that I only had 7dpo before af came worries me. I never have that short of a lp. I'll go with the assumption that there was something wrong with this one and it just needed to not even implant.

Kizzy I hope so. I hope so for us both that it was just wasn't meant to be or the wrong timing. This month will be better. All we can do is think positive and keep the spirits up. It will happen and this is as good a month as it gets

Great to see you too GVMDL!

I'm pulling out all the stops this month too. Everything natural that I can possibly think of. I'm on a mission ladies! lol

My last two cycles didn't pan out the way I had hoped so I'm going to go two more before I call the dr again I think.

If nothing then we'll deal with the next step. Hopefully it won't come to that. I'm really trying to avoid putting anything unnatural in my body at all.

I love the month of October myself. Well, not the cold temperature but definitely the energy! I am from Brazil, born and raised in Rio so as you ladies can imagine it is sizzling hot down there. I have moved here 13 years ago.

I am hoping all of our june 2014 baby, maybe? buddies join us here so we can continue this journey together!

The preggos and the "will soon get the bfp's" , all of us. I love the energy of this beautiful group!

:o)

Gvm, where do you live? It won't get cold here in Houston until maybe the end of November and then it's just cold and rainy - no snow.

Rio? That must have been a fantastic growing up. I'm born and raised in New Jersey. Nothing special here. It get's too cold in the winter and not hot enough in the summer and rains way too much these past few years. The seasons don't even change the way they used to when I was young. I need a warmer climate. Thought about moving to Hawaii for a while but dh's parents are still here and we don't really want to have them that far away.

I wish I lived in TX. Actually I would looooooooooooooooooooooooooove to live in Austin.

I am in northern va/dc area.

Last week I had 38º here in the morning, ugh..

Kizzy, as for the natural, i am with u. I quit smoking a little while ago. So I am looking forward to a more natural life style. I don't drink often, I have switched to decaf back in march once i learned i was pregnant.

My doc checked my progesterone level last cycle it was 17 on 7dpo, so he told me to try two months without clomid, fine for me. I am anxious for my fsh levels as I am 38 but doc says he thinks i will be fine.
So this is really good news.
I am doing the maca root, dh is too. Doing the royal jelly, folic acid, prenatals, those things. I am drinking RRL tea up to ovulation, if i can but last month i didn't as it made me super crampy. We shall see this month.
And will continue to use preseed.

ahhhh, something i read about vitamin c to support good levels of progesterone so i am adding few pills of vitamin c too. I used to take 3000mg a day anyways, they say is good to keep skin looking young LOL

I also take cranberry pills to avoid UTI, since i am prone to it. And if i get it i will be on antibiotics, which can affect ovulation.. Ugh.. Take the pills drink juice to whatever we have to do right?!?!


i will be temping this month as well.. See how that goes. My doc doesn't think bbt is that realiable, i see why.. i wake up several times every night, dh snoozes his alarm for a minimum of 45 minutes every day. there is no way that my body is not listening to all that despite the fact that it wants to stay asleep.. I don't know I am temping anyways... There is still a way to connect the dots (cm, ovulation dip n rises, progesterone tests...). I am asking to be tested at 7dpo again this month...

baby dust everyone!

October it is!!!!

Kizzy, yes, growing up right on the beach was fantastic to say the least. My girls (6/5) LOVE Rio. I have taken them several times. They are great travelers too!
naturals, like momma!

My Dh's mom is from Jersey too. I have been to NJ several times and I love it during the summer. But yes, very cold ...

I'm thinking that before I go on clomid I'm going to give soy isoflavones a shot. I take an organic prenatal that has quite a bit of folate (food derived folic acid) in it. I'm also taking vitamin b complex. I'm going to add rrl, evening primrose and possibly vitex to the mix. My cycles are short, only 26 days. My lp is ususally 11 but I want to lengthen it. It was only 7 this month so I couldn't have even implanted. I am very concerned with anything I put in my body. I always make sure it's either organic or at least is non-gmo. It can sometimes be hard to find supplements but I do what I can. After all of my blood work, dh's sa and my HSG came back fine I'm stuck in the unexplained limbo. I'll be 36 this month so it's not getting any easier. But, I gotta keep hoping right? I'll tell you one thing, once I get my BFP and that lil bean is born. I'll be working on #2 right away. I won't wait to start since it could be just as long of journey but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

I heard great things about the isoflavones. I may give it a shot myself.

I hope we all get the bfp's and sticky beans here soon!

TTC process can be sooooo ironic.. It took me 1 year to conceive my first DD. I took clomid, I was a basket case. My ex-DH told me I was a psycho bitch and told me to get off that medication, I understand that having timed intercourse is not necessarily the coolest thing but u can still make it enjoyable. anyways, I got off the clomid. the very next month I conceived. Had NO clue I was pregnant.
then when DD was 4 months old I got pregnant. again. Wasn't even trying. I guess breastfeeding maybe make sit a little easier. still questionable. Fate.

Then I went through a nasty separation, divorce, and life reunited me with the person who I really thought it was the love of my life but due to circumstances we didnt stay together, 13 years ago... Here I was divorced and married the very next day to that person.
And we conceived on our honeymoon. I lost that baby shortly after. And I am still trying to conceive our rainbow baby.
It is super sad that we lost our baby and I will never cope with that. I hope I can have a rainbow with the person who I always thought was my soulmate. he is a great father figure to my DDs and I know would be such a terrific dad again. We were separated by life for YEARS... We deserve to have our rainbow!
And I have faith we will.
But we are not getting any younger so there is a lot of pressure. i need to stop self inflicting more pressure too. Ok Im 38 but it is not old by all means. We are good.
So part of me going to seek answers with blood tests is to obtain that peace of mind and relax. I rather do this now then years from now start doing my due diligences.

I am pleased so far with the way my body is responding but as a control freak, of course i wish i had the power to control when i am going to get pregnant, like a light switch. In my dreams i know...

We all will conceive, i have faith we will!

Such an amazing story! I was lucky enough to have met my soul mate at an early age. He was my prom date my sr year of high school. We started dating in April of 1996 and have been inseparable since. He's my best friend and all that I'll ever need. We didn't marry until 2006. Our anniversary is in November but we don't really celebrate it at all. Instead we celebrate when it all really began =). I honestly don't know what I would've done without him in my life.

We all deserve our rainbows and we will all get them =)

It is weird writing in two forums... Well this is a very positive start, thank you .

My temps dropped today, been spotting for a couple of days now with this feeling that is coming. Also boobs no longer sore and my abs are flat again (was bloated for a while there), and got this morning at 13DPO so I am 99.9% sure I am out this month. Once starts I will be making a doctor's appointment. Anyway if start now, next ovulation is around my bday and I am praying for some bday magic.
to all the ladies still waiting, to all the and I will see the rest of you in the July 2014 baby pool for an amazing and successful month where the rest of us get our and it sticks!

If anyone is interested in natural supps and stuff this month I will be taking the following (all organic and natural, no synthetics):
1. 2 EstroSmartPlus pills once a day (as this will be third and final cycle of that)
2. 5 chlorella pills to reduce stress and its effects on the body once per day.
3. Prenatals one pill 3 times a day (from New Chapter Organics).
4. 1000mg Vitamin C once per day.
5. 2 Vitamin D once per day.
6. Drink green tea once per day for CD 1-14.
7. Evening Primrose oil for CD 1-14.
8. 2 large fish oil capsules once per day.
9. drink lots of water.

Anyone has anything else they would like to share, I am open to ideas...

This month I feel like I'm just going to try to boost everything. I'll have to wait for next cycle to try the soy isoflavones since it's already cd2 for me. But I'm going to start the rrl tea and see how I deal with that, as well as evening primrose and vitex. We take the same prenatals. Love them and the fact they are food derived. And can't forget my vitamin b complex that I will be forcing dh to take as well since the b12 helps the swimmers too ;)
