I am currently on CD 21. If I O'd on my own at all it was probably cd 18 or 19- but that is a BIG *IF*, The only reason I even care is that I just hope I get AF on time so I don't have to artificially induce her with progesterone. I want to get started ASAP!!!!
All our meds are ordered and on the way here If I had to guess I think that I will start AF around the 9th of January, have my baseline u/s then get started on the injects

Well......I took Soy this cycle and Ive always had great luck with it, but I think I finally got the bad luck this month. Im on CD25 with no clear signs of O at all yet. I possibly could have O'd yesterday or the day before because I had a TINY bit of ewcm and today my temp is what it normally is around at 1 or 2DPO. Oh, and were waiting at least 6 months now to do IVF, I just realllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly want to get pregnant on my own

Ugh!

I'm still waiting for my period to come back. We're going to take it easy for the next couple of months and just do acupuncture before we think about too much else. The last month after the miscarriage has been absolutely treacherous, but I think we're beginning to be on the mend a little bit. Shoveling snow today was therapeutic somehow...

Oh yeah, and maybe in a bit we'll try Brandi's miracle magic!

We are TTC without MA (even though we need it cause of DH). DH is taking all his vitamins again, I am taking Soy CD 5-9 (dont need it but I want a nice strong O!). Today is CD 4. We will BD CD 8, 10 (8 and 10 gets rid of old spermies) 12, 14, 15 and 16. I usually O around 14-16.

Bah Humbug ...

Blood test is in ... BFN

I have never been excited about AF showing but I just wish the witch would get here so we can move on with FSH/IUI round 2 !

The doctor was so upset that it didn't take. He said EVERYTHING on paper was excellent. In fact ... if I were YOUNGER I probably would have been preggo with multiples. BUT ... I am old and that is our only issue.

SO ... round 2 of IUI w/Follistim coming up

If that doesn't take ... we are asking about cost on IVF ... don't know if we can afford it ... but if we REALLY want to do this ... this is the year based on my age. I am 41 and will be 42 in May. I think there will be too many risks if we wait longer ...

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas ... our whole famly was sick ... so we gathered together and coughed and sneezed around the table at one another ! Hahaha It was quite funny !

I'm on CD 8 today. We're taking a break from meds this cycle at the request of my RE due to some leftover follicles from my last cycle. He suggested we do OPKs and BD around O time on our own. I'm not hopefully anything will happen this cycle, but I guess you never know

If this cycle doesn't work, we'll go back to injectables (Gonal F and HCG trigger).

Ugghhh....we're wttc It's partly my choice, so I shouldn't be so bummed about it. We were supposed to do injects and IUI in January, but decided to wait until March/April to begin due to a few reasons (timing at work, going to Australia this summer, etc). The waiting sucks

I have no idea what cd I am on, as my last cycle was 66 days. Stupid pcos!

G/L everyone trying

Awww I must've missed when you first decided this???? I was looking forward to being cycle buddies again! I hope the wait goes by quickly so you can hurry up and get your BFP!!!! OH and I hear you on stupid PCOS. I got my first ACTUAL AF on the 7th because we completely stopped pumping/nursing (due to biting and production so I will be interested to see if I actually start AF again in a timely manner to start injects in January!

We're taking a cycle off and waiting for our IVF paperwork to get where it needs to go. I'm have a laparoscopy tomorrow to remove cysts/clot (and possibly my right ovary) so thats the reason we're doing nothing this cycle.

We are the same age, I will be 42 in April. I hope this cycle works and you get pregnant! Is your FSH normal?

CD 6, started Clomid last night
We are doing Clomid CD5-9, trigger, TI, and pogest. If it doesn't work this cycle and lining is thick again I'll have to have a saline ultrasound next cycle.

I am on CD 19 - 3DPO of a natural cycle without MA. We're still trying to decide when we want to start IVF. In the meantime, I am trying to not think about it too much and save as much money as possible.
