@crams I am so excited for you!!! Good luck and hope you have a sticky little bean!!!
AFM: having a rough day. I am part of a workout accountability group and of course today there have been at least 10 ladies on there posting their positive tests. I can’t help but get discouraged. I have been working so hard on getting healthy hoping it will help with our ttc journey. I am doing good, lost almost 20 pounds, and still don’t seem to be ovulating. I am trying to be as positive as I can be, but it is getting very difficult at times. Sorry just feeling like I am out of this and don’t know when it will all finally happen for us.

@ cram that looks so promising! I’m always cautious with FRER because in my experience they are never completely blank but yours looks like an actual line. ????
@Shay did you test again today? I hope you get your BFP!
@Miam welcome back! Hope this is your month
@Bimini so glad to hear everything is going well!
@Ana so cute!! Keep the bump pictures coming! Adorable! So happy for you
@Alex If this months doesn’t lead to a BFP, it doesn’t mean that the supplements are not working and there is nothing else to try. The doc said they should start to act after 3 months but that means the longer he is on them the more they are likely to help. For some people, if there is a high mineral or vitamin deficiency, it takes time for the body to re-balance. I was reading that women should really start a prenatal vitamin 6 months before they start TTC to be sure their body is where it needs to be when they start trying. Most supplements really do take time to strengthen your system. So I don’t think you should see this coming cycle as a make or break one. I know you will be an amazing mom soon!!

For some reason I couldn't see all the posts from yesterday when I posted last night. Sorry my comments were not quite up to date!
@crams 11 sounds like it is right on track for 9 dpo. Hope it will have doubled tomorrow!
@Pando yes I see it! Very exciting! Hope it gets darker.
@Shay sorry you're feel down. Congrats for losing so much weight and doing everything you can to get healthy. It is obviously working since you did ovulate this month. They say there is only about 25% chance each cycle for the average person if things are timed perfectly so the fact that it didn't work this month doesn't mean anything. The important thing is that you are getting healthier and are ovulating which means that if you keep it up, there is no reason why you wouldn't get a BFP in the next few months. You're doing everything right! Don't give up!
@Burkette glad you finally got your peak!
@scuba excited for next Wednesday! I really hope this is your month!!
@sam not sure how to help. I understand the struggle! After my recent loss I'm pretty much seeing it as "not sure I'm having a baby until I'm 12-13 weeks along this time. Right now I'm excited I got a BFP. It's a good first step but I'm not really starting to think about anything else until I get through the first trimester, get the results of the blood tests and have the first trimester screening ultrasound...etc. I think I'm even going to skip the datation ultrasound since I know exactly what the dates are and so I'll go to the doctor at 10 weeks when they can actually do the blood test (I'm over 35 so they routinely do that at 10 weeks). It's sort of working out that it is summer now because 12 weeks will be early September so in my mind I'll know whether or not we're having a baby when everyone is back in school.
I ran out of tests so the last one I took was 14 dpo and it was much darker but I've decided to not purchase any more tests and just wait and see.

I am so excited for all of you ladies!!
@agatch thank you for being so encouraging. I think what frustrates me the most is the fact that my doctors just keep brushing everything off and say to wait and see. My temps only partially showed ovulation. Between here and FF only one said I actually ovulated. Not sure which one to trust. But my temps were low even if I did ovulate. They have officially dropped even more this morning making me believe I am out and my cycle will be starting again soon. My LP is usually only 12 days if I did ovulate and I am at 10dpo today. We shall see what happens this next month. I will keep trying just discouraged that it is taking so long. I am surrounded by pregnant women at work too so when the school year starts I am not really looking forward to it.
Good luck ladies! I am so happy for those that have finally gotten their BFP!!! You all deserve it!!

Good morning ladies. Congratulations on all the BFP this cycle.
AFM didnt test this morning. Only have one test left. I'm pretty sure I'm out not really feeling too much going on.. I woke up with a headache this morning I usually got one before AF so pretty sure I'm out. I'm wrong. to all!
