Ugh... I'm freaking out here. I just ovulated yesterday.... I hope we BD'd enough this cycle to have a shot. We didn't BD yesterday, which is when I think I O'd, because when I told DH my temp was still low, somehow he took that to mean that we didn't need to BD... and then he had a big meal that night and wasn't feeling up for it. After 3 consecutive days of BDing the day before O, we probably are still covered in that department. Now I'm just trying to do what I can to have more than a 9 day LP so I can have half a chance of FINALLY getting knocked up. I am so fed up with month after month of Nothing. Ever. Hapening.

We were supposed to get referred to a fertility specialist at the end of the summer, and then we got this random letter in the mail that our insurance provider changed but no details on what the new policy was, no insurance cards, no package that normally comes with something like that, it was basically a post card. And nobody at DH's company has even mentioned it. Sick of our insurance getting switched on us every January, now they are switching it on us in the middle of the year?

No word yet on whether the $$$ we spent during the first half of the year will even count towards our annual deductible with the new company... If I NEEDED to go to the doctor for a medical condition today I don't know what I would give them for insurance information...

All that crap aside, what can I do right now to extend my LP?

Ok, I am ready to not be on travel anymore... have been entertaining the idea of taking an OPK and going home a couple days early if its positive. I brought my thermometer down with me and it got lost somewhere in the mess of my luggage so yeah, no idea where i stand in my cycle but I havent had any spotting so I probably haven't O'd yet.. I miss DH, and my critters. I just want to relax and get back to TTCing ASAP. I'm getting a new doctor when I get home, so thats kind of exciting. I guess...

I don't blame you for being tired of traveling! There is nothing I like better than being in my own bed, space, comfortable area! Is this a work trip? Would it be ok for you to go home early?

Sorry about the travelling hun, I hate it too

About the lp issue - you should look into a b6/b12 combo

I took a B-Vitamin complex for like 6 months and nothing... I was taking the max recommended amount..

If anything, the spotting after ovulation got worse during that time.

So yeah. I'm home now. I sucked about temping and everything else while I was away... but I thought I O'd the day before I came home because I had a lot of EWCM so I figured I was out this cycle. And once I got home I kind of realized I hadn't been spotting which is usually the case after I ovulate anymore... so I started taking OPKs the day I got home, negative Saturday, negative yesterday, POSITIVE today. So I'm back in the game this cycle after all! Obviously we BD'd the day I got home, because we missed each other hehe.... didn't last night because I was so exhausted... but it is so on tonight! Hehe.

Anyway... this is probably the last unassisted cycle... I'm shopping around for doctors as we speak. I'm concerned about possible endometriosis and shouldn't have even waited this long to address it, but I need a different doctor.

Anyhow... off to try to catch up on everything I missed on the board the last couple weeks.

That sucks about the B complex - its the only thing that popped into my head when I thought about a shorter LP!

Yay for not missing O - maybe your body knew you were away and needed chance to get some BDing in when you got home. Have fun tonight

Woohoo for O waiting until you were home!! I think it is great that you are going to go see a doctor about your difficulties. It sometimes just feels so good to be doing something even if you still don't have the answers.

Well.. that last cycle was a bust.. obviously. I O'd late and had another short LP.... On the surface it seems like it should be really easy to sort this out.... URGH!! I have an appointment with a new OBGYN, on Monday next week. The awful doctor that I was trying to replace is retiring, so that makes it a lot less awkward to ask to have my records transferred to a new office. That will probably line up with when I am expecting to O, so hopefully we can talk about scheduling some blood work and get some baseline information finally based on that date. I've added a bunch supplements vitamins, CoQ10, Rasberry Leaf, extra iron, evening primrose oil, fish oil, and still taking a prenatal and the vitamin B. Dunno if it will do me any good this cycle... but I think the EPO is already giving me more CM, so that's something.

How ticked should I be...? Almost two weeks ago I had an appointment with a new OB/GYN. Had blood drawn and an ultrasound... and then nobody ever contacted me regarding the results/findings of either one. I am going to get a bill in the mail before anyone ever actually talks to me about the crap that I am paying them to freaking diagnose. I called the office today and a nurse was supposed to call me back but that never happened. And I can't just call and rip someone a new one because I just get someone at a switchboard because it's a clinic within a hospital. They have a great reputation and supposedly have the best doctors but so far I am not impressed.

Thanks to my new job, I have next to zero free time, and I need the support of this board more than ever. I just rarely have the time to stop by anymore...

Next month I have my first appointment with the an RE, finally. Going on 3 years of TTC now... I don't know the exact number because I didn't like mark it on the calendar, but I went off BCP in summer of 2010. Also, I found out my mom had Endometriosis in her late 30s/early 40s... wishing I'd had this information at my last two Dr's appointments because they never took my inquiries about endo seriously, and now we're on the "infertility" track, my insurance isn't likely to cover anything even if they think the cause is caused by endo. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I hate how the this whole medical system is designed to screw people over and make people feel stupid. I had blood drawn last month and it took 3 weeks for them to contact me about the results, actually I had to call them 3 days in a row to finally get someone to call me about the results. And it came back mostly normal, but they were concerned about my FSH levels, they were high, but I don't know the exact number. I think it wasn't suuuper high considering I was ovulating at the time, so they'll have to retest that earlier in my cycle in the future. So that's where we're at right now....

I am so sorry you are dealing with all of that. That is really frustrating!! 3 weeks for blood results is crazy! I hope some of this testing gets you on a good track to your BFP. When is your next appt?

*sigh* Just found out that a co-worker is pregnant... and I have to explain to my boss that I am going to be needing to take time off for multiple appointments because I am starting to see an R/E. No clue how to address that....

Other than that... dang it's been quiet around here lately....

I'm really sorry. I have been finding out that friends and acquaintances are pregnant right and left, so I feel your pain. I'm sorry that I haven't been on the board as much as I should be. I have just been really depressed lately about TTC, but I am still here for you!
