Happy Monday ladies!

I am CD1 today, 2nd cycle off BC and AF is back with a vengence. She's one day early and gave me no warning, that b****! Happy that it's continuing to be regular though. last month was a trick though, because oh man is this month painful and it just started. 


Two more cycles until we really start trying and I'm getting conflicting emotions. Sometimes I am scared and wonder what we are thinking, other times I just can't wait.


FX and baby dust to all our testers this week!

I officially got off BCP in late November. My AF came back normally which I was VERY surprised with since I have PCOS and that syndrome is suppose to really screw up your cycles.

I started Clomid in February and it reduced my AF from 7-8 days to now average 4 days which has turned my cycle days from 35 to 30-31 which means more chances to get pregnant- yay!

DH and I are suppose to start trying this week and I need to pick up an OPK to make sure everything is functioning.
Hopefully this is out month.,.. DH doesn't have his appt with his fertility doctor until June!

BTW his fertility doctors name is Dr Seamen. >.

@Nicole - I hear you on the emotions!!! I felt the same way when we first started (and of course there are days now that I feel like we're crazy!!!), so don't worry it's completely normal!! :)


@Athena - I hear you on the B6... my LP would be 9-11 days... and now that I started that they will be from 11-14 days, helps so much!


@Lara - good luck to you dear!!! How awesome would that be to conceive before that visit?? And that fertility doctor name is hilarious.... I bet that's why Dr. Seamen picked their profession LOL ;)


 


I'm CD8 and starting to get ready for my OPK start on Saturday with my O week next week!! Praying 100X that month 9 is our month!!! :) And I'm staying positive.. I know it will happen!! This week is also our DIY kitchen facelift, we started staining our cabinets last night with coat 1, coats 2 & 3 tonight and tomorrow, and then the poly on Wed/Thurs!! Then we do our backsplash and new pulls this weekend. It is DEFINITELY helping me keep my mind off of TTC :)

Nice evening Ladies :)


@Nicole: Don't worry - I'm sure you will enjoy your TTC journey ;o) 


@athena: FX that your thoughts are right regarding the temp drop because of the open window. Hope AF wait a couple days more to visit.


@ Lara: Yeahh for more changes to get pregoo :) FX that this will be your month



AFM, I am CD25 and 11 DPO and sure AF will come tomorrow or Wednesday. Had brownish spotting the last two days :'(
So forget this damn cycle and looking positive through the next TTC cycle (that will def come). I really hope that May will be our month.


Last Monday I became an auntie the third time - my brother and SIL welcomed her first amazing and beautiful daughter Henni. And now DH would really like to have his own little princess (or prince *lol*). And damn, I REALLY can't wait to be a Mommy!!!!!


So FX for all Ladies still testing in May and the Ladies waiting for the next TWW :)

@ Nicole: Those feeling are completely natural. Having kids is a major life change and like Athena said it would be worrisome if you weren't a little scared. I have wanted nothing more to be a mom my whole life and it is still a little scary to think about being responsible for another human being


@ Lara: That is hilarious. You would think with a name like that he would change it with his profession.


 


I am currently on CD 22 and am 5 DPO on my second cycle on clomid. This cycle was deffinately different, no side effects except A LOT of EWCM a couple days before O. Which was surprising since I heard that Clomid can kind of dry things up. Had a progesterone level drawn yesterday but it's a send out test so I would be able to get the results until Thursday. Hopefully the numbers are good. IT should be at least 15 on Clomid. I am not too hopeful this cycle since I had to work the day of and before O but you never know. GL

Hi ladies! Sorry for my late check-in!


@nicole: I think conflicting emotions are totally normal. After all, bringing another person into this world is an awesome responsibility!


@Lara: Yay for shorter cycles/more chances! Good luck to you this month. And that's hilarious about DH's doctor. I bet he gets lots of giggles:)


@Kristen: I'm SO hoping that this is your month! My fingers are crossed so tightly this month for you, dear. Have fun with your renovations (it's kinda fun, isn't it?), and keep us posted with lots of pictures!


@German: I'm so sorry that this wasn't your cycle. Those last few days are always so hard, when you're ready to just move on already. And babies in the family, as wonderful as they are, are always a little tough too. I feel for you, and hope that next cycle is it for you, and you don't have to wait anymore. Hugs!


@KWood: Hope you get some great results back. FX for you! Sending you all kinds of luck and baby dust.


AFM, I'm on CD 13, and got a high fertility smiley yesterday and peak fertility smiley on my OPK this morning:) So today and tomorrow are go time! Hopefully there is a February baby in our future...
