Had a major drop in temp but not below the coverine so i think i am safe as far as af coming 2day r 2moro... but woke up this morning not feeling well. feel like the food i had last nite didnt digest. UGH.... gonna call the dr 2 c how my test went friday... wish me luck

Well just got off the phone wit the nurse and she said my progesterone was 7.9 and TSH was normal and that he wants to put me on clomid 50 for cd 5-9... ugh Im so tired of hearing the word clomid. it doesnt work for me. i did it for 3 months and nothin. I asked her if i could have my prolactin checked and insulin level checked to c if that is out of whack cuz i dont want to take clomid and it happens to be a hormonal thing ya know. Well w8n on a call back. we shall c

Hey chica! Any news today?

Yea you're right, I haven't been TTC long enough to get discouraged yet. I'm staying positive! I'm like you though, just so ready to be pregnant. I've fought the urge to buy things only because right now we're keeping it a secret that we're even trying.

I'm 11 DPO and feeling a few things but I'm scared that it's all in my head. I'll probably test tomorrow. Well I'm off to yet another bathroom run (one of the symptoms that I'm trying to claim just yet but this will make 3 times in 3 hours and I'm not even drinking anything lol).

Good luck with your test results!

~~~I'm just seeing the post that you made today. I'm sorry that they are suggesting clomid again I know how much you don't want to take that. I'm still praying for you~~~~

Well got the call back from the nurse and she says that the doc wants to have a sit down with me bout the test i requests. seems he doesnt know anything bout the tests that i requested only "high in fertilty specialist" order this test according to him... ugh i just wanted to scream today. and then on top of that the office called me like 5 times 2day telling me the samething man can they please communicate in that office... oh well now i am just ready to get af so i can start my new cycle. I am going to try the 21 day fertility diet. Im also gone add maca root and royal jelly to pharmacy. It seems it helps alot with ttcing so we shall c. i saw the RJ at walmart but I cant find the maca root i might have to buy that online. I really want to loose some weight also I have gained bout 25 lbs since my wedding. thats not cool.. i want to also start walking so when i put the kids on the bus i am goin to walk to the park down the st and take a few laps.... i really feel confident that i willl get my bfp by the end of the year so keep me in your prayers.... well goin to bed ttyl

they will Nayomi I have faith they will....

So I wake up this morning to take my temp and mannn it dropped again... I know this means Af is on her way. I had a feeling cuz i was so nauseaus yesterday. i mean really not feelin well and i usually get that way when af is on her way. That means that my lp is goin to be shorter if it starts 2day r 2moro. Ugh now that is frustrating. Im really gone have to talk to the dr on this one if it starts this soon. Last cycle it started early by one day at least i think so cuz i didnt chart. I could have o'd sooner then i thought cuz chartin i was a day behind so maybe but 1 will never know. y is my lp shorter it dont make no since. Im really gone get on fertility diet starting next week. u have to buy alot of organic food and i dont have the money to get this week but will next so Im gone start then. but i am goin to drink the water soon as i wake like they said to get my body use to drinkin it so much... not really a water fan. wow its amazin what u do when u really want something and I really want this i really want a baby. Well I am bout to go back to sleep just put the kids on the bus and i didnt get to bed til after 2 clowning with the hubby. I have to work later so im gone sleep til its time for me to get up. See ya when i get off.'

well today was another day at work. Couldnt w8 to get off. my breast was hurting all day. they feel like somebody punched me in them. I felt the samething last cycle too but cant remember at what point in my cycle was I. So i know its not ESP even though a couple of cycles ago i had the samething extreme breast pain so i tested at 9dpo and got a 2nd line then tested at 10dpo and got a very very light line and then tested at 11dpo and got nothing and the same day my period started so i am wondering if i had a chemical and if i tested right now would i get a positive I dont want to chance i promised myself that i wouldnt do it cuz that hurted so bad when af showed i really thought i was preg. Im gone w8 it out til af shows and if she is not here by 12dpo i will test the next day. I cant w8 to go to sleep so i can wake up and take my temp to c if its gone drop again.

Wow I just realized that we're on the same CD (24)! Too cool. I'm 12 DPO though unless I got it wrong this month. My chart was very weird this month. I've been spotting since last night so I'm hoping its not AF. But a part of me is like you - just get AF over with already so I start a new cycle lol. This is a crazy roller coaster.

Sending handfuls of baby dust your way!!

yes tryin4number2 i feel that way every month when i know its coming.... I wasnt expecting a bfp this cycle but i wanted 2 at least have a longer luteul phase. Mine varies from 7 to 10 but its been 10 for the past few months. I was hopin that it would have gotten better this cycle since all of the pills i am takin but the drop i saw 2day says other wise.... Sorry u r spotting I was really prayin that af stayed away and woke up to a nice bfp. I konw some woman who still gets bfp's when they r spotting so hopefully its IB did u have it with your first?

Well woke up this morning to a rise in temp but I dont know if i should get excited bout this. I remember last year when i decided to stop tempin it was cuz one month my temp didnt make it past the coverline it was actually in the 98 degrees and i was gettin excited cuz i never got to the 98's late in my lp and then af started. usually my temp goes 3 days of dippin the the last day b4 af it goes under the coverline and bam af but i had got 98's for 3 days str8! i was frustrated and just gave up on tempin but 2day my temp was in the 98's i dont know if it was cuz i woke up feeling hot i asked Dh was he hot he says no its freezin in here but my body was hot so i am guessin thats y i got the high temp. i w8ed bout an hour just layin there to cool off wit no covers and when i felt cooled down i retemped and it was just .8 diffrence so i dont know what to make of it. Usually when af shows all the pms i was feelin disappears. i was layin there tryin to c if my breast pain had stopped and i didnt feel anything so i was like yea it comin and when i got up out of bed i felt the soreness in my breasst and i was like um maybe not today. Im def not feeling any cramps but last cycle i didnt feel any cramps AT ALL it hit me by surprise when i saw af. I just remember feeling really nauseas and dizzy bout 30 mins b4 i noticed i was bleeding. Well I started takin royal jelly I ordered my maca root and dong quai root and some more vitex i am very excited to get those in the mails so i can start taking them. I think i am gettin closer and closer to gertting my bfp. Well I am goin back upstairs and lay under the hubby and watch my baby stories. See ya later if any new symptoms accur!

Good morning Swtneka! Unfortunately my spotting picked up a bit last night so I think I'm out this cycle. I've been going back and forth with the idea of temping in the mornings...I think your last post has convinced me to give it a try and see how it goes. Have fun with the hubby today! Talk to you tomorrow.

Sorry bout this cycle try4number2... but on to next and yes u should start tempin it really is helpin me this cycle.... Gl with this cycle hope u get your bfp soon

Well woke up this mornin thinkin that my temp would be below the coverline and it was not even close. It wasnt higher but it wasnt close. Also noticed that i have been more emotional this past days. yesterday i kept tellin hubby to stop yelling at me and then felt like i was gone cry. I was watchin tv and started cryin at all the corney scenes. I was talkin to dh and just started cryin he is like y u cryin i was like IDK. I dont know if i should count this as EPS r PMS i want to say af is due today but could be 2moro my cycle is always changin. I tested yesterday at 9dpo and it was neg but i am not surprised i never get a positive that early. Huby cooked hot dogs last night and when i woke up i felt like i hadnt digested them. I woke up to go to the bathroom and as i was sittin on the toilet i started throwing up. felt so much better after that. Well gotta go to the mall and drop hubby off at work. I will be back...

Hey Sonica....I'm Toya...just finished reading your journal. ((deep breath)) 18monts is a LONGGGG TIIMMMEEE!!! I want to temp so bad sometimes, but I don't have the strength to do it. My sleep pattern is VERY ERRATIC and my 2 year old always manages to get me RIGHT up out of bed in the mornings. So I dont think it'll be very productive for me. I hope you get your BFP soon though!

Hi Toya yea 18months is a very long time but this is my year i can feel it... Yea tempin can be very time consuming especially when u have small kids. luckly my kids are older and sleep through the night but they wide awake when the sun hits their window. lol.... it was challangin for me as well in the beginning but since hubby has to be up at 6 when he gets up i temp and go right back down til its time to get the kids up for school. Its hard on weekends but i set my alarm and its now to the point where i wake up b4 the alarms. How long have u been ttc r are u actively trying? Well stop by anytime. and thanx for reading
'
Well just came back from the mall and i just had to stop in motherhood cuz they were having a major sale and we both know motherhood rarely have a sale especially a 9.99 sale. lol i didnt buy anything but the sales clerk was like "when r u due" i looked down at my tummy to see if i was showin r somehting for her to ask me that "the she said u must still be in the first trimester" i just said oh im not preg im lookin for a friend. wow i so wish i could have said a due date. I was lookin through clothes and i started geting dizzy and nauseas so i left and then i started gettin hot flashes. like i said idk if this is eps or pms but i just want af to start cuz i hate the delay and thinkin "maybe" that just makes it worse when af shows. i know i prayed for a longer lp but this is torture. lol. I am eating cereal righ tnow so i am feelin better. I want to get in the bed and take a nap b4 i have to go to work. I guess i will. TTYL

Hey chica! Ooo I hope those are EPS...they definitely sound like it. I agree though, its so hard to start thinking maybe this is it and then see that first sign of AF. I'm praying for you to get that BFP!!

well 2day I am 11dpo and NO AF i dont know if i should be excited r scared. I mean I am excited that af hasnt showed her face 2day cuz 1 that means my lp is longer 2 I might be preg . Either way I would be excited cuz they both lead to wonderful things. I took a test 2day and it was so that is 3 in a row. With my last preg I got a very faint line i mean so faint that I wasnt sure it was there. u had to turn it at a certain angle to c if it was there and i didnt get a clear bfp until 12dpo but I am not testin 2moro if af doesnt show by monday i will test then. but i am sure it will. My temp didnt drop which is y i tested. it was actually the same as yesterday. Today i had some nausea but not like the pass few days. Breast hurt but not as much as the pass days and i have some major bachache. Yesterday I wasnt feelin well at all. I felt like i was goin to pass out it was awful. I thought my sugar might be low but then my head started hurtin and i started +seein spots and i remember the last time i saw spots I was preg. I decided to take my blood pressure to c if it was high cuz i always get high blood pressure when i am preg. i checked it and it was 146/96 i ate some candy and started feelin better checked it again and it was 137/89 and the next time it was 132/80 so it was gradually goin down. I dont know if that is a indicator that i am preg or maybe that i am developin High bloodpressure. I should have checked it 2day to see but i was so bussy didnt have time. I am prayin that my period doesnt show 2moro so that will be 12dpo. YAY... Well it was nice spillin to u thanx for listenin now i am goin to c whats goin on with my JM peeps. TTYL

awww...girl you may just be. I hope AF stays away from you. Either way it goes though, like you said it would be good news because your LP would be longer than it usually has been.

And I WAS actively trying. Now I'm more just CASUALLY trying. It was too much pressure on me to constantly analyze things. So I'm taking it easy and just BDin daily...lol but it took me 22 months to concieve my son, I just PRAY it doesn't take as long with this one. I'm trying to be patient, but everytime I see a pregnant woman I go CRAZY!! I just want to have a big belly again. I'm feeling pressure down there too ((hmmmm...strange)) cuz that normally doesn't happen to me and AF isn't due until about the 17th so we'll see. I'm not REALLY trying to get my hopes up this month. But KUP I hope its a For you girl.

Hey Toya wow 22 months did u know y it took that long? I have a hormonal imbalance but just dont know which hormone is out of whack so am self medicatin all of them and hope they get it back 2gether. I tried to get my ob to test them but he act like its soooo hard to order these test. and if i go to a specialist he wants me to pay 800 dollars. So I am just like F it im gone do it on my own. I know i have a luteal phase defect it last from 7 to 10 days but 2day it last 11 YAY!!! I am so happy bout that so the herbs i am takin must be working. i added some new ones to the mix so I have faith that i will get my bfp by the end of the year. they say it takes up to 3 months for it to take effect. so cross ya fingers toes eyes legs (well maybe not legs i know u ttcing) anything else u can cross cuz i am gone have me a summer baby!!!! I wish u luck on your future test and hope it wont take as long either and i know what u talkin bout girl i cant w8 to have the belly!!!

Well Af showed her ugly face this morning. I am not sad bout it though I am just glad that i got a longer lp by a day. hopefully next month i can get a nother day. I knew it was goin to come 2day cuz my temp was below the cover line so i was expectin it. Cramps r not so good. last cycle i didnt cramp but i sure am now. Well 2moro i start my fertitly diet. Cant w8! I bought my maca root and my dong quai and evening prmrose so yay me!!!! I call the dr 2moro for my clomid gone take them 5 through 9 and my soy 1 through 5 maca root, b50, b6, vitex omega 369 and prenatal everyday and dong quai and evening primrose af through o. Wish me luck ladies! well goin get in the shower my body is soooo achin and in the bed TTYL

Girl...I'd be done give up on all them pills...but you DO IT!!! Especially if it's helping. No they NEVER told me why it took that long. Their only excuse was...some women just aren't as fertile. Still 22 months??? And they wouldn't test my hormones they just kept offereing me birth control. Eventually when I said...I'M DONE...I ended up pregnant. LOL. I heard about Dong Quai how exactly does that work and what is it for? I'm always seeing that around when someone is trying to conceive and this guy at church when he does our health session is always talking about how thats good for you and something called ChastBerry or something like that ((shrugs)) I get warry when it comes to popping pills. I HATE IT!!! but I don't know I feel like I'm not conceiving until next year.
