Hello! Just checking in to say I have tightly crossed fingers for 2cats, but also feeling a bit jealous as AF has rolled in right on schedule at 9DPO (after 2 days of spotting). Am I absolutely bloody bonkers to wish I could have a normal, nail-biting 2 week wait like everyone else?
Happy belated birthdays to Happy and Aquarius. My birthday was very recent too, but I was too scared to say when it was as I have 'outing' fear!
Sidney, good news that things are on the move; I do understand how you feel about having mixed feelings though! As Captain has already said, your pelvic scan may well involve the 'dildocam' - it's certainly what mine involved! When my doctor booked me in for the scans she said I might have to have it, depending on how good a 'view' the sonographer got from the abdominal scan. As it turned out, my sonographer said she got a great view from my abdominal scan but that she'd prefer to do the internal scan, just to cover all bases. She gave me the choice and I figured I might as well! It really was absolutely fine - much more dignified than a smear test as she only had to look at (ahem) "me" for a couple of seconds, and then she was concentrating on the screen. Can't remember if you were around at the time, but this was all last month just as my AF spotting was starting, so I had to explain and ask if that was OK before she started!
Does anyone have any idea how long I should wait before my fertility specialist referral comes through? I saw the doctor 3 weeks ago now. I don't mind having to wait for the appointment...I just want to know when it is!
Pip yes just once the right time this month. We are TTC failures!! Will keep you all posted in the morn, DH said he could see the shadow from yesterday so hoping FF was right and I'm only 10dpo and therefore early testing!!
Am tempted to test once more because if it stays down tomorrow I will know i'm out (and therefore no more testing this cycle I love testing!). Got very very faint cramping (it's not cramping but I cant think of a better word as it's not pain but it's a feeling) behind my belly button, and seriously sore boobs (as in if i lean forward they hurt (and i'm only a B cup so it's not like they're swinging around!). It's all odd. But then again I do this EVERY month!!
I believe that your overall temps will be higher due to the clomid but otherwise you will get the same trend. It takes a while to get into the habit but def worth it and it makes me feel better to know there are other mad women waking up at stupid o'clock to take their temperature
Bunny honestly I found it gave me peace of mind and wasn't another thing I stressed about. We don't usually talk about it except occasionally DH wakes up asking if I took my temp I'm bad at waking with the alarm!
Sorry to hear that things aren't looking quite so positive 2cats but as the others said its not over yet!
Bunny I second what 2cats said. Temping isn't at all stressful for me. Most of the time I do it half asleep and DP is always out for the count so he doesn't even notice! Very reassuring to see that temperature going up at the time it should.
AF due for me in next few days. Only gonna POAS if it hasn't arrived by Thursday as DP off to France and want to know either way before he goes!
