@Mel - thank you for your kindness, it means a lot. I am sorry for all those BFNs for you and to see that the spotting has returned at the end of your lp. It is really strange for you, isn't it? You do not spot while on progesterone, do you? This cycle seem to be different in every way for you! Major hugs! Do you have a plan for next cycle(s)?
@JustTrying - I see AF has arrived for you after the spotting! Sorry for the anov cycle, but glad to see it ended on its own! I love it when CD1 is also the first day of the month! Did your Ovacue arrive in time? Your appt is close now, and I hope you get to set a great plan! I agree that you will have an ultrasound done and blood-works, but that may will be only at the beginning of next cycle. As you do not ovulate on your own for months now, Clomid/Femara is a good option for you. Please keep us updated on how it went!
@Amariel - I am sorry you are feeling less important than other paying for the clinic. The whole clinics sound very unfriendly! Hugs to you! Your cycle looks to be out of the norm also. How are you feeling? Do you feel like ovulation is coming with that EWCM?
@Marie - I am happy that the HSG was rather painless for you, but it is not good that you have some questionable results. Did you decide if you want to get it repeated? I see you got a temp jump with nice timing, and you are also missing one crucial temp like me If we both O'd on Saturday, then we are TWW buddies!
@AlaskanWife - your temps are looking so steady this cycle! I hope the spotting will stop and it was just ovulation spotting. You may still have a fall-back rise as your chart looks like at the moment! Fingers crossed for you that it is not due to the earthquakes!! You are very brave that you shared your story with all the people there. I am starting to be fed up with the 'relax-and-it-will-happen' comments what I usually get. It was nice that some of them tried to give you a good advise and encouragement. Did your strange symptoms subsided? I am sorry I had no wisdom to share with you on that.
@MrsD - thank you for updating us on your results. I am crossing everything I can for this second attempt to be successful and you get to the transfer without any more setbacks! You are both heroes on the butt shots!! That is what we also wanted to avoid during our IVF. I only had one oil shot in my rear during retrieval, but maaan, it hurts for days after! The circled target area is soo funny!
@RomaTomato - I am sorry for AF, but hopefully this cycle will be more normal for you! You are both counting the calendar days for cycle days with Justtrying! Let's hope it means some good for both of you! Do you have a plan for this cycle?
AFM - we were traveling to friends outside town during the weekend, so I couldn't temp on Saturday, so I don't know exactly when did I O. I ended up disturbing the first jump, as usually, as this seems to be my norm to have a high temp prior to O, possibly due to the major belly pain it causes on my possible adhesion around my ovary. So I may O'd Friday or Saturday, but I do not have any high hopes. I have been hit with another pregnancy announcement from my best friend, who has just given birth last September, and they wasn't ever trying for #3, it is an oopss, again! Life is not fair! Her little DD is only 7 months old! Also an oopps-baby!
I had my third acu session today, and also went to the RE, and got some bad news on our start, as we are not able to start in July, although we were signed up for it, as there has been some changes in their regulation and there is a shortage on specialists, so we can only start late September! Now I feel like I can't win, too! I almost cried on the way back home, even though I tried to look at the positive side, that maybe the acu will help and we can avoid the whole process by conceiving naturally . We will not be TTC for the next two or three cycles, due to timing of birthdays, but I am okay with that. We have to re-think our plans for this year, as I was planning to quit my job, but now I don't know anymore when to.
