Happy New Year, everyone!

I thought I’d start off the new thread. This is month 6 TTC #1 for us. Last month we found out I needed progesterone to lengthen my LP - so have had one cycle taking that so far - LP was a great 14 days, so feeling positive about this next month trying. CD10 atm and will probably O around CD20.

Good luck and baby dust to all!

Good luck disydo

I was meant to do first cycle IUI in March, Mother Nature possibly has other plans. Hanging out till Wednesday  morning to get my bloods back and see if any trace of HCG, not due to get my period until between 7th -9th of Jan. so might be a tad early, but if no period next week, bloods will be redone depending on Wednesday’s results.

Looks like a few of us will be testing over the coming days... fingers crossed for a few BFP to bring in the new year!!!!
I’m not drinking tonight or smoking just in case....

Happy New Year! Best of luck to everyone waiting to test, let’s start the new year with some bfps!

CD7 for me, 13th cycle TTC #1. Officially in the ‘unexplained’ category with all our tests back in September coming up clear.

Booked a follow up FS appointment for the 17th so we can see what our next steps are, fingers crossed he can give us a quick solution, or better yet we get a bfp in Jan!!

BFN for me this morning 2 days till AF is due and I'm still getting AF like cramps and back pain. Keep thinking it's already arriving but just creamy CM.

Think I'll just wait the 2 days rather than re-test, it's so depressing seeing that bFN.

Fingers crossed the new year brings lots of baby dust for everyone xxx

Happy New Year ladies and fingers crossed 2019 is our year! This is cycle 3 TTC for us, following a 9mth delay while I sorted through very high prolactin levels and waited for medication to normalise these levels and for my period to finally return.

I’m kind of confused about O this month and was hoping someone could shed some light on what’s going on!!! I got a solid smiley on CD14, but got peak LH on the internet cheapies the following day (CD15). I tested again last night and the Second line has almost vanished...but my temps haven’t done the typical spiked increase following O. What is going on?! I’ve attached temps for last cycle and this current cycle - any light that anyone can shed would be much appreciated 😊

Happy New Year everyone!!

It's so exciting having a new year and a new month to look forward to after a really really tough 2018. For the newbies Im 31, hubby is 33, we had 3 mcs between 5w and 7w3d  last year. We are now on cycle10 cd23 9dpo of trying to conceive our 3rd baby.
Bfn this morning but feels too early. Will hold off testing til at least cd26 now. I go back to fs on the 17th of Jan to see what his plan of attack is. My results showed elevated levels of antinuclear antibodies and borderline thyroid so will see what/if he wants to do anything about this.

Good luck everyone!!

I’m a day behind you Peebs, CD 6 here , but have only had half a dozen long cycles over the last 10 months . I’ve decided I’m not doing opks or temping this month! God i would love my cycles to shorten this year !
Waiting on specialist to call with my first appointment since TTC 😊 happy new year !

Hello,

Coming over from the December group.
Cycle 13 of ttc. One miscarriage in 2017, no luck last year. Have started on Metformin about a month ago due to high insulin.
Currently 5dpo, testing on the 9th Jan. If were unsuccessful, we have a follow up appointment with the FS in early Feb, to see where we go from here.

December had quite a lot BFP so here's hoping we get a lot this month :)

Happy new year, everyone!

Welcome to all the new ladies, I hope your stay in this forum is short 😊
TTC1 for 9 months now. I have long cycles since ceasing BC, with this current one the longest at CD76 and no sign of O.
I was referred to a FS late last year and are waiting for AF to show up so I can continue with bloods and ultrasounds. Until then, all I can do is wait.

This waiting is driving me nuts.
This whole feeling and running to the bathroom expecting blood and there’s nothing, it’s such an uncomfortable feeling. The right side of my lower back is also tender which started yesterday.
Drs appt is tomorrow but I feel like the bloods were done too early and won’t show anything so will have to wait until mid next week.

Hi everyone. Hoping for a kinder 2019 and some bfp successes for all.

This is cycle 13 of TTC - unexplained infertility. This is my first cycle on letrozole, so really curious how my cycle will turn out this month. I hope this gives us a bfp but trying not to get ahead of myself. Currently on CD14 and no LH surge yet.

Happy new year everyone x

Hi Mrs. Mish - I hate temping so I don't know too much about it. I do know that just because you have an LH surge - it doesn't guarantee O. Sometimes you can gear up for O and it fails for whatever reason. Having an annovulatory cycle every now and again is also normal. I would just keep temping and see what happens with your cycle this month. TTC is always a waiting game unfortunately :(

We are around same DPO, I know it’s hard but maybe hold off until Monday.
If I don’t get too much of an answer tomorrow on Monday I’ll be going and buying a test and test mid next week.
Hold in there.

Know them feels babyblessed! My husband hides the tests from me so I won’t do it too early 😂 Try not to stress tho, 9dpo is still early. Fingers crossed for you! 😊

Happy new year everyone 😀

Returning this month, I’m TTC #1 6 months. Experiencing long cycles approx 46 days. However this cycle I had my first ever positive OPK on CD16 and FF app is saying O on CD18. My temps didn’t go straight up after this so I’m unsure if it’s right. I’m 15 dpo now (according to FF ) and have been having mild cramps for days like I usually do before AF but it hasn’t arrived. Not sure what’s going on. Had a BFN on 12 dpo. Sharing my chart to see what anyone thinks.

Good luck everyone this month 😀

Just saw my Dr, HCG was negative. BUT in saying that it’s possible that did slightly too early.
Going back next week to repeat bloods if period fails to show.

Bugger #YKG I was kinda hoping there was a tiny trace in there for you...
10DPO for me today! DP doesn’t want me to test but I desperately want to 😫😫😫
Just spoken to my Fertility Specialost Nurse & asked her to get me a script for Clomid to start next cycle... considering my age time is of the essence! My FS wants me PG before I turn 40 in July...

Thanks this makes sense pupperino. Maybe this is similar to me and I just got excited when I had the first ever positive smiley opk this cycle. But looks like O didn’t happen.

The result was HCG

Because my other post hates me I’ll re do it here

My HCG result was under 1, but I think I either ovulated Christmas Eve or Christmas Day so was only 6/7 days past ovulation which may not be long enough for implantation.
So if AF doesn’t arrive Monday morning I’ll do a HPT & if still hasn’t come by Wednesday will get bloods redone.

Blessed, fingers crossed you get a BFP in next couple of days

I caved & tested after DP went to work this morning & still negative! Going to see my Specialist tomorrow... Its only our 2nd month trying but with my age we need things to happen quickly!
We have both been tested and at this point we are apparently super fertile & things look good for us to fall naturally but I'm so impatient LOL
Will see what my FS has to say but I'm sure it will just be - Be Patient it will happen AGH!

#YKG did they test to see if you O'd? or just HCG?
