leslieann,
I am sorry for your loss too. I am doing better now knowing I am able after all these years. Wow lawyer! Congrats!
Butterfly,
Thanks for the words of encouragement. It was refreshing to read. I am a believer in faith and we all will conquer this infertility.

Renee,
Glad you are back and happy to hear you got Af right on time. It was hard to hear about the chemical pregnancy but yes I am happy I am on the right path. Too bad our cycles are not the same anymore. I think my cycle is real messed up this month. I will keep fighting. Keep me posted! I think you are right about the charts and temps. I went to a holistic doctor and she gave me the herbs i have to boil them for 45 minutes till it come to 1 cup then drink it. I tastes like mud really bad mud. Reminds me of FEAR FACTOR. lol.

Jade,
Sorry to hear about your cycles are you taking anything (ovulex, clomid,epo,green tea). I will wait one month then try again.

Lili,
How are you doing? How is your little boy? It is amazing how kids can look at you with their loving eyes and you can forget just for a little while about the pain you are in. I have a 4 year old dd that knows whenever I am down she comes to me and gives me a hug or a smile that makes me smile. I hope you are doing ok we are here for you. I know you will be pregnant soon again and have a healthy pregnancy. Don't give up keep your faith. You will conquer!!! Love to you and your family. I will pray for you tomorrow.


Take care everyone! Have a good night

Ange,
Last time I got a BFP on geritol tonic. I tried ovulex for a month but I 6 weeks of abnormal bleeding so I stopped. So I am going for the geritol again and keeping my fingers crossed! What about you are you taking anything?

Lili~ I am so sorry. I know it will be hard for a while but don't give up hope. It sounds like you have been blessed with a great husband and son. You guys will need each other more than ever now, and I know that if you guys stick together you can get through it. I know that you will have a healthy baby soon.

Renee~ I think it always feels good to start a new cycle. New hope for a new month. :) Yes, I'm still on the clomid. This was my second cycle. My LP is usually 11 days and I'm 12 dpo now with no signs of AF coming. Fertility Friend says I should test but I am probably going to wait, just because I'm so tired of seeing those bfn's.

Ange~ Chemical pregnancies can be hard, but you're right, it is kind of reassuring because you know that your body is at least able to get pregnant. And I've read that they are actually quite common, so unfortunately most of the time there's nothing you can really do to stop it from happening. :( I am late for AF today and so afraid to test because I don't want the same thing to happen again. I'm going to try to wait another week I think.

How is everyone else doing? Hopefully well, there are some new names since I last posted. Here's a late welcome from me to everyone!

Baby dust,

Leslie

Lili, I will be saying my prayers for you today. I love you and keep the faith.

Leslieann, I sure hope that this is your month. Will you be able to wait till next week, I wouldn't be able to. Are you seeing a RE? We are going to try two months on our own and then we are going to do clomid with IUI. What symptoms do you have? Whats you temp? Good luck, keep me posted.

Ange, do you drink that stuff everyday? Do you know what cd you are on? When will you start to try again?

Butterfly, I sent you a e-mail. If you don't get it e-mail me at [email protected]

Lili, I saw this and thought of you!

"All our Hopes and Dreams,
now carried on Butterfly wings..."
"As a butterfly graces our lives with one moment's fragile beauty, so too has your baby's presence blessed you, and those that surround you with their short life, and unique spirit. May you find peace, and joy with each butterfly that passes, knowing that your baby lives on in the hearts of all they touched."
You are in my thoughts and prayers....

Jade, What does geritol do? I don't blame you for stopping the ovulex I would have too. I am taking alot of herbs honestly I have no clue exactly what I am taking. I went to a holistic doctor she gave them to me I have to boil and drink them every night .....yuck! for six days then I go back she checks me again and then gives me more or less the same thing.

Leslie, Yes chemical pregancy are very common more often than we realize. praying for you and a bfp! Babydust!

Renee, Yes I have to drink it every night it is hard but my dh is drinking it too not the same but close... His looks at least like tea where mine is like mud LOL. My cycle I think I am already in the DPO no clue my cycle is mess up. I still feel bbs a bit and have the pain on my side like when i ovulate but who knows. I am not charting at all this month.

Coconut, Welcome and congrats!

Take care everyone! Babydust to all

Ange,
Geritol is like a liquid vitamin. It is like taking a shot every night and it takes awful. You drink a tablespoon a night. I tried it for a month and it worked I guess. You never know if that was what worked or not. I have been ttc for 8 months. It sounds like the stuff you are taking tastes awful too. But it is all worth it if it works!!!!

 

LeslieAnn - November 2

Renee~ I'm hoping to be able to wait until next week. I am kind of anxious to test but I really don't want to see another bfn, so I think I will wait at least a few days. I've had a lot of pms symptoms so I think AF could possibly be on her way and I don't want to get my hopes up.

Coconutt~ Welcome! That is a gorgeous picture! Fall weddings are so beautiful. Good luck ttc this month.

Jade~ Good luck with the Geritol! I haven't tried it but I've heard it's pretty awful. I use Robitussin since I'm on Clomid, and that's about all I can take. :)

Lili~ Be sure to let us know how everything goes at the doctor, if you feel like it. I love you like a sister and hope you will feel better soon, but it's okay to feel sad for awhile.

Good luck to everyone and have a great night,

Leslie

Renee,
I'm just doing the herb thing right now. I stopped ovulex because I read that Echinachea(or how ever you spell it) and St Johns Wort shouldn't be used when trying to conceive. So what I'm taking is vitex, red raspberry, Licorice, prenatals, flaxseed oil, maca and evening primrose oil. The flaxseed will help me with my weight and the maca with my sex drive and energy. Everything else has to do with hormones and cm. I plan on going on False unicorn root but haven't found it yet. I will see what happens and let you know. I can continue the red raspberry and the false unicorn until after the first trimester to prevent miscarriage. I'm getting so excited about everything and you're right maybe I won't need the hsg. If I don't get pg this cycle I know I will within the next 3-4, that's my goal anyway and I hope I reach it. This cycle is already acting different after the medroxy(I think that helped). I'm getting more cramps than usual maybe my ovaries are being well stimulated or if I have cysts in them then they are popping. I am also on a progesterone cream that a herbologist recommended at the store I went to. Congrats on the af. I was excited when I got mine. Maybe we'll both have BFPs this month. Happy BD.
Denise

Coconutt,
You can buy Geritol at any drug store (walmart or walgreens cvs) and it only cost like $3 for a big bottle. So it is pretty cheap. It does taste pretty bad though. And it is just a vitamin so I think it is pretty safe to take.

LeslieAnn,
Are you having any side effects from the Clomid. My RE said that was my next step but I am really scared because I have heard of some bad side effects. Robitussin doesn't taste that great either, but it is worth it. Did your Dr recommend you take it with the clomid? Is it to help your CM?

Have a great day everyone and Happy Friday!!!

Coconut,
You can get it in herb form, you just got to look. I'm not looking to take that liquid stuff.

LeslieAnn - November 3

Jade~ I was also kind of scared when I started the Clomid because I've heard a lot about side effects. I haven't really had that many side effects. My skin broke out like CRAZY the first month, which was annoying but I survived. I also get a lot more cm around ovulation, and then the rest of my cycle I get less than usual. I went on Clomid to see if it could lengthen my LP, and so far it has (or I'm preggo, I don't know which yet 'cuz I haven't tested). I usually have an 11 day LP and I'm on 13 now and no pre-AF spotting yet. So either way I'm pretty happy with the results so far.

Well, still no AF for me. I had a teeny tiny bit of brown yesterday so I thought it was all over. But now I'm back to creamy cm, and no spotting. I am going crazy wondering if AF is coming, but I'm still too much of a weenie to test. I will probably buy a test tonight and take it tomorrow morning with fmu. If I don't chicken out. I just do not want to see another bfn. :(

Well, everyone have a happy Friday!

Leslie
