Hugs to all from me too smile

Good news about the tubes winkle hope you are up to dtd.

red it sounds good for you too.

Alexandra6 Tue 05-Mar-13 21:29:20

winkle great news it's clear, apparently it can be like a spring clean so you may be super fertile!

red that sounds really promising! Come on strong swimmers, you can do it!

I had some amazing news today (was for me anyway), I got my first smiley face on an OPK!!! Was so excited I nearly fell off the loo seat! After my clomid scan yesterday when he said I have a mature follie, it's looking good right? I dtd last night and tonight again. However, I don't have much cm and haven't noticed any EWCM...is it possible to ovulate without noticing that?!?

Kittenkatzen Tue 05-Mar-13 21:31:02

Great news red, fx for you

res I'm good thanks, knackered and hungry about sums it up so far smile. So sorry to hear you're considering ivf...but very glad you're feeling positive about it.

Red and winkle its all looking hopeful for you. Spring clean smile think I could do with a total body mot this month.

Kitten yeah sil is a bit of a bitch smile

Alex I've had a couple of months when I definitely ov and didn't notice any ewcm

RedRobin1 Tue 05-Mar-13 21:41:24

Yay for the smiley on the opk alex
I have heard clomid dries up CM so maybe why no ewcm. But yes you can still most def OV without ewcm.

Alexandra6 Tue 05-Mar-13 21:48:30

res our next door neighbours had IVF, now they have a lovely little baby, first time round smile

Thanks wee and red maybe I should try preseed next month? Seriously though, I really hope it was ovulation, after 13 months with no sign of ov, that smiley face was brilliant to see!

Glad to see the apps went well red and winkle, when you have the hycosy thing do you get to watch it on a screen yourself??
Red what's the difference between iui and ivf? Are they very different?
Alex great news on the grin I love those things

twinklestar2 Tue 05-Mar-13 23:59:26

Hi kitten good to hear from you!

red - great news that you got answers to your questions. The consultant said the same thing to me – that we would go straight to IVF. Your husbands results are brilliant now (I scrolled back to read them) FX FX FX for you.

Kitty – IUI is when wash the sperm and squirt the good ones up you; IVF is one sperm and one egg in a dish. That’s what I think it is anyway… Yes you get to see your insides on the screen and they tell you straight away if they can obviously see anything wrong.

I remember my first smiley face alex I was so happy to see it!

I feel ok to DTD but OH is worried so I’m going to ring the clinic tomorrow and double check. This is the perfect time for us tho. I’m CD13 and I usually OV on CD16 so I need to be dtd NOW!

Congrats on the smile Alex...hope miracle happens for you this month!!!

KerryJewels Wed 06-Mar-13 03:03:17

*a miracle

Thanks winkle I thought it may be that, I know of one couple who have had iui then, not direct friends but its been very sucsessful for them, 3 children all conceived that way, I know 2 who have had ivf ( well one was icsi) they have just about every problem going, low sperm endemitriosis , pre cancerous cells and pcos and there's was the one that worked, my other poor friend is still battling conception but is going to a special place in London this month for another round
I'd say if you feel ok I'm sure the docs will say its fine ( I'd tell dh that anyway wink) after all officially I should have waited a month after mc to try again but I didn't want to waste the apparent increase in fertility chance and well I wouldn't be pregnant now if I had!

Thingymajigs Wed 06-Mar-13 12:21:41

Great news about the smile alex. It is exciting to see that for the first time.
Glad the appointment went well red. Everyone seems to come back in a much more positive mood after seeing a fertility specialist for the first time. Fingers crossed that it happens within those 6 months.

resipsa Wed 06-Mar-13 13:32:19

Wow, this place has suddenly got v chatty!

Red we've being trying for DC2 since DD was about 8 months old and she's just turned two so quite a while, albeit with one failed pregnancy early last year meaning we've been at it with NOTHING GOING ON AT ALL since May 12. It's not that long in the scheme of things particularly as DD took nearly 12 months but age (and the age gap) is not on my side hence IVF decision...

Alex that's fab. I too love the smiley faces! Still makes me laugh when DH asks if I "got a smiley".

Winkle hope you've good the green light!

twinklestar2 Wed 06-Mar-13 13:37:33

I've got the green light! You know what I'll be doing over the next few nights then!! The monitor is still on high so OV should be in the next few days.

weechops Wed 06-Mar-13 14:21:01

Yay winkle get bonking Mrs! smile

RedRobin1 Wed 06-Mar-13 17:04:57

fx res you get that bfp before the IVF process starts. For what its worth, I always wanted children with a 3-4 year age gap. But seeing as how its taken us this long to conceive even the first, we have decided not to wait for ttc no. 2 and just see if it happens.

I am not rushing into IUI or IVF. even 6 months seems to soon. Knowing that we have been ttc the last 10 months, another 6 months will come and go so soon, I am not sure yet if I am ready to go for IUI. So we have just decided to assess the situation when it comes to that milestone.

Winkle get shagging... smile

I am in a boring old hotel room, i hate working away. just miss DH and miss home. Thankfully AF is here to keep me company sad

Thingymajigs Wed 06-Mar-13 18:27:09

Aww red that does sound miserable. I always try to cheer myself up by imagining its my last period for 9 months. I will be equally as fed up tomorrow; I have my Uncle's funeral to attend and AF is due.
Good luck this cycle winkle. Well, that goes to all of you really! smile

Red that sounds sensible with assessing as you go along, in reality while ill never underestimate how long each month feels 10 months isn't that long especially as there has been your cp aswell and healthy couples can take up to 2 years, it took me over 18 months for dd with no problems with us ( I now know) then having the same idea as you as not waiting I got pregnant without trying before my periods even returned, luckily as I was bf dd was 8 months but don't underestimate what weird curve balls life throws at you, fx you won't get to 6 months anyway!

Jump your hubbie winkle grin

Mytwobeautifulgirls Wed 06-Mar-13 19:02:10

oooooooohhhh can I join please????
fxd for is all 2013 start of a great year wink

twinklestar2 Wed 06-Mar-13 23:33:35

Welcome mytwo!

Red - I wanted a 3-4 year gap too but will now have to take what I can as I'll be 35 next year and hopefully have a baby then. If I wait 3-4 years I'll be 39 and if I'm having problems conceiving now (we started ttc when I was 32 sad) god knows how long it will take at 39!

Alexandra6 Thu 07-Mar-13 07:29:21

I'm planning to never use contraception again and the sooner the better for my next one if I'm lucky enough to have more than one! (let's see if I say that straight after childbirth!) wink

Thingymajigs Thu 07-Mar-13 07:55:04

Welcome mytwo. smile
My children are going to have a huge age gap. I don't think there is an ideal gap though as its all down to personality.
AF is due today. Can't sense any signs of it yet (no cramps) but I'm preparing myself.

Alexandra6 Thu 07-Mar-13 09:10:15

I was never fussed about having a tight age gap, didn't ever think about that, but I've heard that for some people (not all) pcos and ovulation can be kickstarted by having one so that's the main reason I won't be leaving a gap. Listen to me being all positive today and talking about more than one smile

thingy fingers crossed she doesn't turn up. And hello mytwo

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHopeful Thu 07-Mar-13 09:49:15

mytwo hello and welcome.

winkle how is dtd going?

thingy hoping af stays away and the funeral is ok.
