Weekly Check-In: April 15th-21st

Hope everyone had a nice weekend! How is everyone doing this week? :)


 


As for me, nothing too exciting. Mondays are usually a drag for me...it's hard to come out of the weekend coma. ;) Today I am 3dpo, so I am left to wait...and wait some more... :)

As always, FX to our testers!


Still on my first cycle off BC and I am CD29; expecting AF today, though I don't have my normal symptoms. When I was on BC it was clockwork. So I'm interested to see how this goes.

Ok my body changed it's mind--literally right after I posted earlier I stood up for a meeting and felt cramps. I thought it was my mind playing tricks since I was sort of waiting for them. 


Well AF just arrived. Pretty excited that my first cycle off BC and I'm right on schedule!

Haha how funny, I feel like I just got a whole bnuch of high fives for AF! Never in my life did I picture me rushing to post, "AF arrived on time!" or such a great response. Much to all my PW friends who happen to just get it.


AF however is not as kind and is back with a vengence. Those symptoms I talked about not having this morning? They are here now, x10. A not so gently reminder about why I went on BC in the first place.


@Claire--hope you're feeling well!


@Junebride2be & @june1bride--stay strong, and keep us updated when you do test! (@ashle too, I'll be stalking this board this week!)


@Kristen--have fun BD'ing, FX so hard for you!

Hi everyone!


FX for all of you about to test here soon, and lots of baby dust as always!


@nicole: so glad you are regulated already! AF is a beast, though...hope you feel better soon.


@Claire: hey, Mama! Hope you and the little bean are doing well!


@Kristen: I'm only 1 CD behind ya...FX that this week is a successful one for both of us!


I'm on CD12, and we pulled out all the stops this month. Temping, the fancy new advanced OPKs, and pre-seed. I got my "peak fertility" smiley face this morning, so hopefully today and tomorrow are our lucky days;) Just waiting for my BBT rise to confirm that these fancy schmancy OPKs work...

@Kristen&Littlebit07: Hope you ladies O real soon and catch the eggie!! :) 


@Nicole: *HUGS* I understand exactly how you must feel...I went on BC many years ago for the same reason and when I went off of it...Lets just say I dreaded AFs arrival every month! Still do, til this day. Hang in there though! Hopefully AF won't stay for too long! ;)

You ladies are so sweet!


@ashley - hang in there girl!  I know how hard the waiting is!


@ nicole - yea for being on time!  My cycle was regular right away too! ;)


@Kristen - keep doing that dance!  FX - it would be so great if this was your month, too! <3


@ the junes =)  remember that if it isn't a BFP at 10dpo don't count yourselves out! I was still negative at 12dpo!


@littlebit - FX!!!!  How exciting that you are seeing awesome smileys!


Did I miss anyone?  I'll go back and check =)


I am doing well so far - sooooooo tired, but I was tired before, so that is not different.  It is nice to know that the dizzy spells I was having really are PG related!  The doctor says they should go away in another week or so....


I had my first appt last Friday.  She did a UA to verify my BFP, blood work to test hCG, Progesterone, electrolytes (because of the dizzy spells), Thyroid (standard for me anyway), and a genetic test for Cystic Fibrosis - if I'm not a carrier there will be no need for DH to be tested.  My first u/s is on May 1st and DH is going with me.  I'll be approx 6.5 weeks along.  We could do it on April 26th, but I'll be in AZ visiting my mom, so it will have to wait until we get back.


In the meantime, if I don't eat every hour or so my tummy hurts - I'm not exactly naseous, but I don't feel great either.  My dr said I need to be extra careful because of my blood sugar issues anyway.


FWIW - we used Pre-seed everytime we BD this cycle, even when my CM seemed more than adequate - I was tired of waiting and figured it couldn't hurt.....

Hi Ladies!  I'm back after taking a few months break...initially we were going to start ttc again after our vacation next month but my bloodwork changed our minds.  I met with my RE last week to get everything in order and develop a plan for June and I needed to have some bloodwork updated.  He sent me for my AMH which measures ovarian reserve.  Last year when I had this done I was at a 3.0 which is very good and unfortunately gave me a false sense of having plenty of time left.  Well, I turned 35 in November and yesterday my nurse called and told me that it's at .88!!  I can't believe it dropped that much in a year...OMG...I feel like time is just running away from me and now I regret taking a few months off.  She said it's still acceptable and they'll take anything above .7 but I'm not even that much above that and at this rate I'll dip below that next month!!  From what I've read online, anything below 1 is low and is at a decreased chance for success.


Anyway, today I'm CD2 and will go in tomorrow for BW and US.  I pray my FSH level is okay.  I have all my meds (clomid and injectibles) and we will be doing an IUI this month.  We decided this before my test results...definitely think I'm ready to explore IVF now.


 


Good luck ladies!!


 


Nicole - that's awesome that your first month off bcp is right on schedule!


Claire - So so so happy for you!!  Congrats!


Littlebit - almost to testing time!!  keeping my fingers crossed!


Kristen - sending you lots of baby dust!
