Rae that would be awesome if that combo worked for you.

Paula that's a lot of scrambling during your TWW. I can't imagine everyone knowing I'm TTC. So much more pressure to make it happen. FX'd that this is your cycle.
Love the dip on your chart. Could it be IB??


Pamela did you have a chance to talk to DH? Hopefully the tLk went well and he was able to see your side of things?


I started looking into DH's issue and medication can cause it. For now there is nothing that can be done. He has to take a beta blocker and no matter which one he's on it can cause his sexual dysfunction. I came up with Anorgasmia. I bought him some Maca so will see how he does with that. I know I can't give him a cocktail of vitamins/supplements. I don't want to kill the man.
I also bought a box full of vitamin/supplements and I just got them yesterday. I can't even remember how and when I'm suppose to take them. I may have to do some more research.
FF gave me my CH's this morning. I am now 3DPO. 9/10 days until I start testing.

Yay Renee on the CH's!! And great you've figured out some things with your DH. Sounds like you're on top of it all and I wish you the best with it!

I did talk to him about the things he said and how they made me feel. He swears I took it the wrong way and he said he put it behind him and doesnt even really remember what he said and why he said the things. He has this issue of getting upset and saying really REALLY stupid &*#$. Drives me nuts b/c it lingers with me and I tell him that all the time. Hopefully the one issue I hadnt explained here really b/c it's a long story has been resolved. He finally understood what I was saying and understands what I said is true. We are with each other 24/7 so considering that, we dont fight or argue all that much. But with my PTSD, I associate it with my past experiences and it's hard. And I get this fight or flight response and figure he wants to leave etc. I love him to death and I know he loves me. Just wish he didnt have that issue of diarrhea at the mouth. LOL But I'm sure he wishes I didnt deal with anorexia, PTSD, anxiety and depression. lol

I'm trying not to get my hopes up and keep telling myself that all these symptoms are just normal AF stuff and not worrying about it. But the past couple of days Ive been getting dizzy, my lower back hurts more than normal and my whole body feels tight. Last night I couldnt drink enough. I'm thirsty all the time and that's not like me. I get myself dehydrated alot b/c I dont drink enough. Anyway.... 9dpo and just taking it day by day....

Pamela I'm glad you had a chance to tell DH how you feel. One day he'll get it, but you're most likely going to have the same conversation over and over. Are you seeing a therapist for your PTSD, ED, and depression? I had one as a teen and in my 20's. It helped me more once I was in my 20's.Not sure what to make of your symptoms since I never get anything . The dizziness my DH gets a lot in the morning dude to his SVT and medication. When was the last time you saw your Cardiologist?
Have you added anything new to your collection?

Renee--I understand that your DH has to stay on the beta-blocker and the side effects that go along with that...but, his doc should be able to help him at least investigate other options. Some beta blockers have less side effects than others, so it would be at least worth it to talk to his doctor. Even if you weren't ttc, it is something that needs to be addressed. The bottom line is that your husband is too young to have anorgasmia without at least trying to treat it. It is not my area of expertise, but it is definitely worth a trip to his doc to talk about it...maybe even seeing a urologist. Just MHO, I hope I haven't stepped over a line...just trying to help
I also noticed the dip on my chart...I had a temp dip in December when I got my BFP, although not quite to that degree. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but it is promising. No other significant, consistent, symptoms to report, so only time will tell! Gotta love the 2ww!

Pam--glad you talked to DH and you seemed to have found some common ground. I would have to agree with Renee, I had a therapist to help with deal with some body issues that I had in my 20's. I wouldn't dare say that I had anorexia nervosa, but I believe that I was heading there if I hadn't sought treatment. It could never heart to find someone to talk to about things. As for your symptoms, I'm getting excited for you...sounds promising!

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.

I've been to so many therapists and treatment centers, inpatient, outpatient, day treatment, intensive outpatient. Therapists always hear my story and after about 4-5 visits, feel I would be better suited somewhere else. Then I got to tell it all over again to be told the same thing. After years of it, I stopped. I was in intensive outpatient for the anorexia in late 2009 for 8 weeks then moved down here early 2010. I was looking for a therapist down here in florida but it's not easy to find and costs a ton. I'm doing ok in general. Some of my feelings will never go away. I dont care how much treatment I get. I have the tools... I just have to work harder every day and it gets tiring sometimes. I'll be ok though.... I'm open about my issues and I deal with them. Just DH has issues with my keeping myself safe apparently sometimes but that's his issue, not mine.

Renee... I dont get dizziness from my heart issues. I've always just got winded, short of breath and tired. I havent had dizzy spells in years. Hopefully it's a preggo symptom....we shall see

Paula back in March 2013 I was so convinced the Prednesone was the issue, but it was the Verapmil. They lowered that dose. Then he was having issues and once again I go in and they lower the Metropolol and recently took him off the Verapamil. At that time he was only taking 12.5 mg of Metropolol but he started taking Zoloft/generic form. It could be either one of those drug causing it. Last Tuesday is when his latest issue of getting erected but not being able to achieve orgasm started. By intercourse and hand. He'd get really close and then the feeling was gone. He went over 4 days of not ejaculating. Usually when DTD he has the rapid heart rate and start getting too hot. I agree something needs to be done with his medication, but right now he has a couple more months to see if the higher dose 25 mg Metroplol will help and if it doesn't they are going to put a new lead in going from his groin to his heart/pacer. That is one reason I haven't made an appointment. Add to the fact I was openly frustrated last week because he couldn't finish so he is starting to get performance anxiety. It's a vicious cycle. Oh his Dr said he could take Viagra but he's not having issues getting an erection. I'm also the one that has to go to his Dr appointments so I can tell them the issues.


Pamela I would hate having to explain myself over and over and then get pushed to another therapist. Although you do need to feel like you've connected Ted with that person. I blew quite a few in my teenage years and a few in my 20's. You can always vent here.
Fx'd the dizziness is pregnancy related. That would make it worth it.


I never thought I'd be saying this, but I am no lo.get a fan of Girl Scout Cookie...GASP! Before vacation I ordered 12 boxes and I just remembered I had them. I opened the Thin Mints, Tagalongs, and Samoas and they aren't as great as I remember. I guess now I can share them with the rest of the family. Yes, I had they put away for my own personal satisfaction.

Oh please Pam, I'm rocking weight watchers today's. I've had 2 chocolate donuts, 4 teas, and ice cream from McDonald's all this afternoon. I'm probably eating out as well. Bring on the girl scout cookies. I have some in my office come to think about tonight as well it. Paula, I'm glad you were able to make him understand. Men are so dense at times. Just keep working through and you'll get there. Renee, those meds and issues do suck. I'd try the Viagra as I know your DH needs the medication. And Paula interesting drop in temps today

Paula.... Rae mentioned the drop in your temp so I had to take a peak too.... definitely an interesting drop! =)

wow....just not feeling it today with eating. Tried eating pizza and it was just too much. I love pizza but it was making me sick. Then had a quick hotdog but I could take the smell of it and felt like I was going to get sick from it. So gave it to the dogs. So yeah....not feeling it at all.

I just called DH Cardiologist and they think it's actually the Zoloft causing DH issue. Originally when he was having med issues and health issues it was the Verapamil. He couldn't keep an erection. Once the meds were adjusted and he stop taking the Verapamil he's been good to go sexually. I talked to his Primary and told them he needed an alternative to the Zoloft, so they are calling in Mirtazapine to see if that helps. We have over 3 weeks before my next fertile window, so hopefully it'll be all straightened out.

Rae I would of totally at everything you did if it was there. Although Friday I made the mistake of eating at some total Granola place, all soy and tofu. I ordered a Turkey BaconAvocado sandwich and when I got I noticed the bacon looked funky and was totally limp. Totally gross. Waste of $35.


I have been more productive today. I've vacuumed the upstairs and shampooed the carpets in the hallway my bedroom and Bonus room. I still have 2 bedrooms, family room formal living room and stairs. I hate having a big house.

Renee... I didnt put two and two together about the issue your DH was having and meds. Zoloft definitely is a good bet. It effects that in both men and women. I took Zoloft (200 mg a day) for like 3+ years. I didnt even think about that. Hope the change helps!

Renee--2-3 weeks is all you need for the Zoloft to be metabolized out of his system...but, I'm still hoping for your one-hit wonder to lead to a BFP .....p.s. I despise spring cleaning!!!

Rae--still loving your chart...and I still have high hopes for you!

Pam--I'm loving your symptoms & your chart

AFM--I said I was off today, right?....wrong!! I actually have an adjunct faculty position at the local university where I am in charge of students when they begin their clinical education for anesthesia. I was supposed to meet them at 2pm to give them a tour and show them where to change into scrubs, etc....I TOTALLY forgot about them! I felt so bad! I got a text at 2:20pm telling me they were waiting in the lobby for me. I was still at home (30 min away)--those poor students had to wait around for an hour for me! I apologized profusely and then told them that I would somehow make it up to them over the next couple of years. I would LOVE to blame it on early pregnancy brain...but, I can only assume that it is my age!!! I felt so bad! What a loser, am I?!?

Paula thanks for the info! You're not a loser. Especially since you kept apologizing. . I've got all my digits crossed you get your BFP.

Pamela meds suck! You have to take more medicine to counteract the other meds. Praying that you get your BFP this cycle.


I'm ready for bed now.

Oh please Paula...I bet everyone there has done something similar at one time or another. I know I have. Unless you got there and told everyone to just get over it and their time isn't worth anything. .. you're not a loser silly lol

Sheila... really hoping you get your bfp and you dont have to leave. Thoughts and prayers are sent your way!

Rae.... yeah, I'm hoping to log on and see someone surprise us! It's about time we get some bfps!

I'm trying really hard not to test yet but part of me wants to. I'm feeling like AF could start with the gassy/crampy feelings. I get sharp twinges on the sides of my BBs before AF, but I'm getting very sharp twinges in my nips that started Sunday and I'm getting them again this morning. I didnt sleep well last night at all. My hopes are up and I dont want that just to end up with another bfn. AF isnt supposed to start until cd27 and I'm cd22/dpo10 today.

Have to add that my mouth is watering this morning like I've just seen a giant piece of cheesecake! lol I'm gonna throw a dish at a wall if I'm not preggo b/c I have never had all these symptoms with AF in my whole life. The other months ok.. my body was settling in after having the IUD removed, but this month my temps are stable and my AF has been back on track last couple of months. sigh.... not a fan of TWW.

Sheila I'm glad you came back. T&P's for you.

Rae your chart looks amazing. Hopefully today your Dr gets back to you.


Pamela your chart is looking so much better than your previous ones. Hopefully you enjoyed that cheesecake. Hold out on testing for a couple more days if you can. Plenty of woman have gotten their BFP at 10 DPO, but most don't until CD12/13.


My youngest missed the bus so I'll be driving him to school and I'll be running late for oldest Speech/OT. Getting my children moving in the morning is just tiring. I have to follow them around to keep them on task. Time for me to get ready.

Oh no.... I didnt get cheesecake.... my mouth just has been watering today as IF I was looking at a piece of cheesecake. LOL Wish I had some... I love it!! haha But yeah, my chart is all leveled out. Maybe the other months were b/c of taking out the IUD and getting back on course. THat's my guess anyway. OR...hoping it's because I'm preggo!!

Can I say WOW!!! ALL day my nips have been hurting like heck. I mean seriously. Not realizing I"m grabbing my BB's all day. Thankfully we own our body shop. lol Mostly on the left side but it seriously hurts. And if I dont eat right away.. I'm getting dizzy. If I'm not preggo... I'm gonna be shocked beyond words b/c my nips are KILLING me!
