Jade~ sometimes our dh just have to learn for themselves sounds like your just felt the anxioty that is cause by all those questions. It is funny how he responded. But at least you both are on the same page now. I couldn't test last night I had to pee so bad I didn't make it the 4 hours. Today my bbs are full so I think it might be tomorrow but dh is going for another sperm count on friday morning so we are not bd again till friday after he gives them a sample first. We did bd last night so I will keep my fingers crossed. Oh well I get my results next week from the MRI so we will see from there. I was hoping to ttc but there is away next cycle....we know that will be coming lol!

Renee~ looks like tonight is the night for you! I hope you O tomorrow. I will pray for you. I will check out that movie this weekend.

Lili~ Yeah it seems to happen faster some months......How are you? Are you trying to relax?

What ever happened to Leslie? SHe never came on this site?

Hi ladies ~ Sorry I haven't posted in a while but I've been SO busy!!!!

First I want to say that I hope everyone is doing well and I hope this is our month! I am praying for each and every one of you!

I've been pretty down lately about ttc. I've not given up, but I'm definitely feeling down in the dumps. I didn't think I would get so depressed after my BFN last cycle, but I totally did!! I am trying to get more motivated, but it is hard. I am still taking ovulex, geritol tonic, prenatals, and green tea but I havent been charting like I should and I haven't used my fertility monitor yet!! I plan to start charting and using the fm tomorrow (cd9). I have pretty regular cycles so I should O on cd 14 or 15.

Please ~ I need some encouraging words so I can get motivated again!!!! HELP!!!!!

Love ~ Butterfly

Sorry if this is TMI ... but ....

Have any of you had brown-tinged cm following af? I've noticed brown-tinged cm from cd 6-8. Could this be spotting???? It's almost like creamy cm, but brown-tinged! Weird??

Thanks ~ Butterfly

I will email you my chart and please give me your advice :)
Well I know what you mean about everyone asking you. I hate it after my m/c thate veryone was asking me about my pregnancy and I didn't want them to know that I had loss my baby but since they were all asking over and over I had to say the true. but now all my friends now have about 2 or 3 kids and they keep asking me when are we having our 2 one, which they don't know how bad we are trying and it;s just not happening. I hate my best friend because everytime she wants to get pregnant she will bd that day and there she will get pregnant tha fast. Last saturday at a party a another friend of mine was telling me that she gets pregnant really fast, and I almost wanted to cry because I wish I could be like her, but unfortunatley I am not and here I am suffering to get pregnant. I have the faith and trust in god that is all it takes and I know that he will bless me soon.
Keep the faith Jade our turn will come soon, I know how you feel and you will get that bfp hopefully this month.
Lets pray extra hard for each other. ;)

My temps today were 981. they went some down and today I am in dpo7 hopefully they will go up and confirm a implantation dip. I have the faith and I will keep t with me until I confirm that bfp! If not I will always try next month. I know that this is my first one ttc again and it might be some confusion but soon I will get that bfp!
I've read that usually implantation dip rises on dpo7 to 10 hope that I can get that since my temps have been low!

I have faith and that is all it takes!! :)

Have a great day!

Love Lili

Sometimes we need to take a break and breathe. I get down too. I was 5 days late when AF came this month! So I know how you feel. I used to get very depressed each month not conceiving. But I wouldn't have my daughter who we adopted. She is my life! I can't imagine not having her in my life. I know now that's why I never conceived it was cause my daughter was in my heart and I just had to be patient and find her. We all need to go through lessons in life and boy some are painful but it just makes us stronger and we go on. Take a break enjoy your husband your family will come to you when the time is right!

About the brown discharge I got that last cycle too.

Take care


butterflywishes1 - February 20

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for those very kind words of encouragment. It is SO hard when you get your hopes up each cycle, only to get af or that BFN and I know you fully understand the feeling. It hurts and it sucks!

I think I am so down on charting right now b/c I have been so obsessed with it! I have been overanalyzing every temperature and every possible symptom/sign! It is TRULY driving me crazy...

I am going to start temping and using the fertility monitor tomorrow, but I have promised myself that I wont let it control my life.

Ange, thank you again. I hope this is our month. Please let me know as soon as you get your MRI results. I am praying for you!

Love ~ Butterfly

I had very lil pink spotting early morning yesterday when i wiped but it didnt return all day and havent seen any today. Has anyone ever gotten a positive beta after -HPT?
Any advice ishighly appreciated.


Jade - February 20

Hi Ladies. Hope all is well. We seriously need to have some GOOD news. Everyone seems to be really down lately- including me. ....

Lili~ I emailed you about your chart. Looks like IMplantation Dip to me. YAAY. I am praying for you.....

Ange~ YOur Poor Dh having to have another SA. I know they must hate it.... Are his numbers usually good?

Butterfly~ Looks like Ange, you, and me are all on the same CD. Hopefully we will all get a BFP this cycle.

Renee~ ANy sign of O yet?

Neema~ Stay positive. Sounds like you may have had Implantation spotting-- afterwards it takes a few days for enough hcg to get in your urine. You may have a positive tomorrow.


Jade - February 20

Oh- I have been having some strange discharge-ish things going on since my dye test yesterday. Wonder what is going on. Is that normal. It is like brownish CM but it is more like not cm but thick almost like skin.

Sorry about the tmi.....

Jade, I think It's normal to have spotting for a little while. Are you having any cramps? I'm on cd 17, my fertility monitor still says high fertility, I'm still waiting for a peak. I have had 4 days of high fertility. I dont know when I will get the peak, I hope tommorow. Last month I O around cd 15, The geritol seem to help, but not helping that much this cycle. I have had some watery cm, but not ewcm like last month. I drink arizona green iced tea and then also green tea with tea bags.
What day do you usual O?

Caretta32, When do you test? Good luck girl.

designedmom, What did you find out? I'm praying for you.

Ange, March is right around the coner, good luck girl.

Butterfly, are you feeling any better. I'm here for you.

Lili, keep me posted with those temps. Send me your chart again, please.

Love you girl


lili246 - February 21

Thanks for your help. I will let you know my temps tomorrow and send you my chart.

Have a great day and good luck!

Hi everyone,
Thanks for the good wished, thoughts.....
I went in for HCG and came back negative so looks like this is not my cycle. with all the meds i dont even know when period will start LMP was 01/03 this whole time i've on meds. Nurse who called sounded like she was really enjoying passing the message didnt even want to elaboratethe numbers i had to force them out of her. she says my HCG was less than one and P4 was 18. so looks like i wont have AF till it goes down but i'm in somuch pain, everything hurts, cant seem to stop crying. I just feel lost. does any one have suggestion when to start treatment after a failed cycle? how do u decide


Jade - February 22

Hi everyone. Sure is quiet around here......

Renee~ I havent been having any cramps. The spotting is less today. I have no idea when I usually o. On the clomid I o on day 17. the first month of Femara I od on 21. My cycles are irregular. SO who knows. The RE said I may O sooner this cycle bc my body should be getting used to the femara. We will see. He said to start opk on day 12 (fri).

DM- I am sorry for the neg results. I know how much it sucks. I havent been through IVF so I have no idea about how long to wait. Could you give us some more information about your TTC history. We are here to support you and you will get through this. We are in this together....


designatedmom - February 22

Hi Jade
I've TTC since early last year had 4 failed IUI 1-no meds, other 3-medicated. it was getting hard to cope with each cycle so i stopped after 4 failures. in early January started BC for two weeks, then STIM, had 11 eggs retrieved, 8 fertilized, but 7 were dividing so Transfered 3. the remaining ones didnt make it to freeze. maybe this should have been a sign of things to come, but they decided to trander 3 day three embryo with 8-cell. then started 1cc POI till this morning.

Oh one last note, i'm 35, single. TTC with donor

Hi Ladies ~
I am feeling much better today, although I still feel discouraged. I can't stop thinking that this will never happen for me. :( I know I need to have faith that it will happen, but part of me feels like I can't do this naturally....???? I guess I am just SO scared. Yes, that's what I feel... SCARED. Scared that having a child is not in my future..... :( Is it normal to have these feelings??

Thank you all for the kind words and encouragement. It means so much.
Love you all!
