Renee, you're killing me! I can't believe you haven't tested. It always kills me. Perhaps that's what's going to make this cycle special. You waited and got a reward at the end of the wait.

{{{hugs}}} Rahni this whole process just sucks. See your Dr soon and keep up updated.

Sorry to hear of AF showing it's ugly head and Renee...good luck!

I'm a bit out of focus the past couple of days. My kids Grandmother is dying from lung cancer and she's turned for the worse and I'm having a hard time with my kids hurt and sadness. My daughter is only 10 and she's trying to take care of her grandma and to hear her sadness is heartbreaking. I can't think straight with everything going on right now.

Sheila, I'm so sorry about you kid's grandma. It is heartbreaking to have to watch ones that you love lose someone they love. It says a lot about your sweet little girl that she is helping to take care of her. My prayers go out to you and your daughter, and to her grandmother.

Rhani--so, sorry that AF showed up. It sucks! And as far as percentages go, quit googling them--you'll drive yourself mad. Find yourself a fertility specialist that takes you seriously and is aggressive in helping you on this path!

Renee--I'm with Rae, FX'd and prayers sent!

On a side note--why do we call her "Aunt Flo"...I've NEVER had an aunt that I disliked as much as her! She really gives Aunts a bad rap!

As for me, I worked 16 hrs yesterday & I'm exhausted! (But that is another story!). I work at a hospital, so I was able to get my labs drawn during the day. My HCG came back at 247 and my progesterone was 12.8. I have to get to 1500 before they do a vaginal ultrasound to see if there is a sac in the uterus or in the tube. I have the worst timing, and if it keeps increasing in the same pattern, I'm going to be at Disney World when it hits 1500. I had already planned to sneak off to LapCorp to have the lab draws, but now I wonder if Disney has a queue for vaginal ultrasounds, lol! Seeing as that is highly unlikely, I have the feeling that I'll be racing from the airport to the OB/gyn's office the day I get back. I've got to protect my tube if it isn't in utero!

You know my deep desire for a child. A little one to love and to hold, to care for,
to cherish. Grant that my body may conceive and give birth to a beautiful, healthy baby in Your holy image.
Guide me in all my choices so that this conception, my pregnancy and my baby's birth are in line with Your will. Heavenly Father and Holy Mother, hear this prayer of my heart, mind and spirit.
Amen.

Pamela, think of you and praying for your family. I'm sorry you're going through this.

Sorry abt your kids grandma ctymom its hard to watch little ones to face that
Thank you all for your encouragement i finally book an appointment with a fertility dr... They said however that they would not offer me any treatment involving my own eggs because of my age and said only because they did not want to take money from me with such a slim chance as they find that unethical... I would like a chance at trying though but I will guess we will see what this dr has to say.... Also bought a basal thermometer so will have to learn how to use fertility friend

Sheila, looks like you had a nice implantation dip on 7 DPO

I seem to have O'd a little earlier this cycle (CD11), and my temps are a bit more impressive than they had been. Not sure if its because my cycle was so screwy last month, or cause I O'd from the left side this time, or from the Maca Root and raspberry tea I've been taking. Maybe its a combination of all 3. I'll tell you what though...whether or not the Maca helps with TTC, I'm gonna continue taking it. I feel AMAZING on it! DH has been taking it as well, and he really likes the way it makes him feel too. I am truly impressed with this stuff.

Jenn, what does Maca Root do? Do u get it at a health food store?
I just started drinking apple cider vinegar (1tbs in water) , read about it on the TTC board- can't hurt right? I'm willing to try any natural-type thing at this point.

Sheila--you do look like you had a nice little dip...FX'd that it was a smooth implantation

Vicky--you're life sounds a lot like my sisters--chaotic, but in a good way! She quit paying attention to everything and gave birth this summer at the age of 44...here's to BD for the fun of it and getting a little baby out of it as a bonus!

Jenn--One of the websites that I frequent raved about Maca root...I never tried it, but others swear by it! Baby dust to you!

Sherry--I've read about the AC vinegar thing, too...hope it does the trick

Pam--Hope you are hanging in there! Thinking about you and your family.

As for me, I had my 4th lab draw this morning, and my HCG was 650 (last one 249--so, I more than doubled. As I said before, I'm going out of town this weekend and will continue to have them drawn at a lab down in Florida. I spoke to my doc's nurse today, and since I should be past the 1500 mark when we get home, we went ahead and scheduled a scan for Tuesday morning....I think I'll be on pins and needles until then! Funny thing is my doc is in total shock about my labs--so, she is coming in on her day off to do the scan herself! I think I'll keep her

Looking good indeed Jen! Hopefully this is your magic month!

Shelia, I'm praying for you to get your bfp. I sure hope you've ovulated already.

Paula, I've been waiting for an update. I'm so glad to hear things are good and your numbers are doubling! I'll be 42 soon so you've inspired me.

Sherry, its basically a natural mood enhancer. Some side effects are that it can help even out hormones, and increase libido. I bought mine at GNC. You can get it in powdered form, but I've heard its kind of hard to choke down that way. I got gelatin capsules. It says to take 500mg three times a day, but I only take one a day and I've noticed its effects. Its also supposed to be beneficial to semen and sperm production in men. Its worth a shot I would think.

Sheila, I've got everything crossed for you right now!
