Af due tomoro... I hate this sad
How's everyone else feeling?

GaryBuseysTeeth Sun 09-Dec-12 20:23:11

Dana, ouch! How is DH now?
Sorry I've only just seen the posts, how are you feeling? Positive or pre-af?
My two previous pg (including mc one) I gained about 5lbs before getting a BFP, this time around I'm 5wks & have only gained a 1lb...so fingers crossed for you!

magoo, 'glad' to hear you're sick!

Def going for an private early scan, would hate to 'be' pg over Christmas & then find out I'm not..not seeing Dr/midwife until after then.

Fingers crossed for tomorrow purple

FX purple
horse I was thinking the same, would be awful to be pregnant over Xmas and the find out you'd had a MMC sad, my first scan isn't til 10th Jan but as I'm going privately this time and it's costing a fortune I don't think DH will agree to paying extra for a viability scan.
Fx everyone for this month smile

I'm feeling crap to be honest, not pre-menstrual crap, just crap cos of this horrible wait and the fact I've gained a ton of weight that could just be me getting fat! Lol.
And to add to it, I've just remembered my last af was 29 days not the usual 28, so possibly not even due til tomoro! Arrgggh!! (And breathe...)
Hubby is fine now, all recovered. Just a bit tender when he is stretching / lifting.

PurpleDana Mon 10-Dec-12 17:40:20

Oh and thank u for the fx's :-)

Hello everyone,

Myself Pearl, from India. I am 79' born and my husband n me are TTC from last 11 months and so far nothing happened. I was diagnosed with PCOS and was treated for say 4-5 months, which regulated my period from 35-days cycle to 28-30 days, which sounded a good news for me until last month, I was supposed to get my periods on 24 Nov but it arrived on 30th Nov 2012. First day(30th nov) it was normal bleeding and second day little lighter and on 3rd day that is 2nd of Dec, just some spotting that slightly stained my pad. Then nothing ..... I normally start to get cramps, sore-breast and sick 5-days before my period is expected. But this time i just felt little cramps exactly few minutes before i started to bleed. My normal bleeding continues up to 4-5-6 days.

I don't know what happened to me. I have been feeling very dizzy and sick from last 3-4 weeks, feel like throwing anytime. headaches, slight cramps on either side of my lower abdomen. Its 12-dec-2012 today, took a HPT, got 1 clear pink line and exactly from where the 2nd line should have appeared, I see pink spread as if drops of urine were more than it was supposed to be.

I am so confused now confused. i donno what should I do. I am feeling so disappointed. My last period was again 5-6days late, is it that my PCOS is still not cured???? sad

PurpleDana Wed 12-Dec-12 15:37:34

Hi pearl I would say get another test so u are not guessing anymore and it is clear.
Meanwhile for me - day 30 and still no af. I almost fainted at lunchtime today, was it baby or hunger?? This is the first month we haven't had a test in the house ready and I now feel i wanna get a test, but everytime I poas my af comes that night or next day and I feel so stupid. Hmmm...

PurpleDana Wed 12-Dec-12 18:07:32

Oh my god!!!!!!! BFP!!!!!! Oh my god!!! I can't believe it!

purple a massive congratulations gringringrin

Hi Pearl and welcome.

How is everyone else. I'm waiting for AF to arrive then we are properly trying. Probably not a great time money wise but if we want another baby I need to get pregnant first half of 2013 as we have a big family wedding in 2014 that I really don't want to be pregnant for.

pearl81 Thu 13-Dec-12 06:18:25

WinterLover wish you all the very best luck then .... smile

WinterLover Thu 13-Dec-12 09:19:51

Woohoo AF has arrived grin

GaryBuseysTeeth Thu 13-Dec-12 10:31:47

Dana!!! Massive congratulations! Hurrah for getting fat for the right reason!

pearl, I don't know much about pcos but I know you can't cure it...just control it.
I have a friend with PCOS and her doctor has put her onto a very natural foods diet (lots of grains/vegetables) without junk food or processed sugars (which should help to regulate the testosterone production).
She is also taking Vitex/Agnus Castus/Chasetree Berry (lots of names for the same thing) as a natural 'clomid'....and it helps to regulate her period.
Good luck in getting your BFP soon. x

Winter, hopefully the last time I'll say to you 'hurrah for AF'! Good luck trying in 2013!

I'm almost 6weeks(!) pregnant now & still worried every twinge is another mc, but have booked a scan for next week so hoping to see a little heartbeat there (or two, I feel massive atm so I'm hoping it's twins & not me getting fat)!

shellshock7 Thu 13-Dec-12 12:24:25

Congrats purple yay!

pearl81 Fri 14-Dec-12 05:29:31

GaryBuseysTeeth: Thanks ... I got to know so many things abt PCOS now and also something gud that even if I have PCOS i can conceive provided i follow proper medications.
Clomid also helps in ovulation isn't it? And how can I know whether I am ovulating or not? Earlier I could feel those egg white discharge but never was aware what it was for....and now ever since I have started to TTC, i hardly find any such discharge .... My doc had also prescribed me ADOVA for 5-days to start from the 5th day of my period. Now I guess it was to make me ovulate.

-> I have a question, whoever is put on Clomid or any meds that helps in Ovulation, how and when does it actually work? what i mean here is ....
suppose today is my 5th day of period and I start such med from today onwards till 5days, then when will I be ovulating??? During those 5-days of my med course or later anyday???? if its later then its really confusing as to when will I be actually ovulating .... arrghhhhh!!! so frustrating!!! sad
Someone please help me .... i think I am missing out on something .....!

-> I also have another question here: whenever my hubb ejaculates inside ... i do not feel anything ..... is it with all? or is it that I should feel the ejaculation happening inside me ????yeah I do feel some movements of his P** inside as if slight vibrations, but not able to feel the ejaculation inside. Also after he has ejaculated .... the fluid comes out and keeps coming out when i pee next day. is it what is stopping me from getting pregnant? i try my best not to let it come out but it comes out everytime sad.

I am so sorry to mention all this here ... but I guess i am here for my confusions and suggestions right? hope u dont mind me asking these stupid questions.

Thanks a lot again in advance ....

pearl81 Fri 14-Dec-12 15:04:38

Hey everyone ... Good Morning to all lovely ladies there... how r u all feeling today??? and yeah Please someone ... answer my queries if anyone is aware of it....

Thanks,

PurpleDana Sat 15-Dec-12 09:21:59

Thank u everyone for your congratulations messages, it's so nice to hear them!
I am feeling good at the mo, just a little fat and lots of twinges. But yes, fat for the right reasons lol, and I guess twinges are normal?? Just baby settling in?

pearl I'm sorry I don't really know anything about clomid, but I do know its normal to not feel ejaculation. And as for the the fluid leaking out, that's normal too, there is nowhere for your body to store it so of course it will come out. And don't forget, the liquid is only the carrier for the sperm, once it's released the sperm makes it own way to the egg.
Personally I clean myself up about 20mins after sex.

Hope everyone is ok and feeling positive!! :-)

pearl81 Sat 15-Dec-12 15:56:18

Wow thanks Purple... got it now....

pearl81 Mon 28-Jan-13 16:29:53

MannyAxy Mon 28-Jan-13 21:21:15

Hi, I'm new to this so please bare with me!!
TTC #2 since Aug 12, no luck so far. Got hopes up this month as had symptoms of being pregs earlier in the month even did test but BFN! Then AF ( hoping thats the right term!) arrived today! Very frustrating! Haven't spoken to anyone about how I'm feeling except OH, he's very relaxed, which I'm trying to be, but I am getting more and more anxious about it!
