A bit about myself, I live in Atlanta with DH, two dogs and a cat. I enjoy sword play, and fencing, as well as weaving and sewing. I love swimming. My mother lives about 3 miles away and has a back yard swimming pool that my dogs and I use on a regular basis through the summer. I volunteer at Georgia Aquarium when I have the energy to do it, which isn't nearly as much as it used to be. I don't work because of a head injury from when I was in the army.
My husband and I have been TTC for over 2 years now. We are in the process of getting medical help - my appointment with that doctor is November 27th. Until then, we're still trying actively at the mid point of my cycle every month.... but given that I wasn't ovulating the last time I saw the doctor it's not very likely. But this month I did see some signs of ovulation - a bit of blood at mid period, and some cramping, as well as CM. So that was hopeful, and we DTD.
Today I'm 6DPO and there was a little bit of blood when I went to the bathroom. Nothing big, just a tiny hint of red. I'm not sure whether this should make me excited or nervous or what.
Anyway, I bought some EPTs on amazon, which should get here on Wednesday. I don't expect AF until the 23rd, so I really shouldn't test until at least the 19th, but it's so hard to wait and I so want an answer!
7DPO and I'm pretty sure there are no symptoms anymore. I dunno what was going on earlier, maybe I'm just crazy. Not feeling as hopeful as I have been. Still, going to test next week. Maybe we'll have good things!
Hi and to journalling! Thanks for sharing a bit about yourself and your ttc story so far. I'm sure your november appointment will be here before you know it! (And i'm pretty certain about that because i'm getting married in November and time is flying by!)
And try not to dwell too much on not havign any symptoms at 7DPO, it way too early for most people to have any symptoms, and its more likely that implantation occurs around this time or later anyway. I think your plan to test on the 19th is a good one!
Today I'm rather angry. I put my temperature today into fertilityfriend.com today and it informed me that I had ovulated on the 16th. Why on earth couldn't it tell me this on the 16th? We DTD on the 14th and 18th, but not the 15-17th. So I am guessing this is not my month. I'll DTD tonight, too, since today was the first day of a temperature rise (the 16th it was a degree and a half below normal)...
Still no luck for me. I have my second appointment with a fertility doctor coming up on the 27th of this month. I rather expect her to tell me I have PCOS as I was tested for it between visits. She also mentioned trying clomid at the last appointment, so I am looking forward to trying with some help, and maybe a Hanukkah miracle.
