Hey, on the 2ww and looking for some support! Just changed onto a 40 day cycle so this has been a long time coming, not that hopeful though as even though we used OPKs we only DTD a couple of times during high fertile time because hubby feels the pressure and can't always perform lol still be nice to have some support. I would call this cycle 2 of officially trying so still early days.

Hi all

mabel, got my bloods. Apparently progesterone should be more than 30 but less than 100 at 7dpo (which seems different from what you were told however I'm on clomid so that may be reason??) I was 29 at 8dpo so not brilliant but ok apparently.

Cheers bump I love hearing these stories, gives me hope! X

Bumpforme2014 Wed 05-Feb-14 22:41:22

That's the attitude gingerbread, just to give you some hope I found out today that my cousin is expecting twins after a couple of years of trying so there it is, proof it can just take a little longer for some but it is inevitable if you keep trying. Xxxx

Gingerbreadlady1 Wed 05-Feb-14 20:39:27

Aww thanks bump and mabel. Speaking to others going through the same thing def helps.

Blood tests not back yet but will up date when in. Working till fri but being taken out for dinner to celebrate promotion, gonna have lots of wine to compensate. The copious amount of cake is taking the edge off it. (Determined to try to stay optimistic)

Oh Gingerbread - boo indeed. so f**king unfair. sad
Sorry to hear that, truly. And it's hard getting back on that bus.
But I'll be there with you. And I have a great feeling about March...

Do something nice for yourself.

Bumpforme2014 Wed 05-Feb-14 20:28:20

Booooooo :-(

Gingerbreadlady1 Wed 05-Feb-14 20:09:48

Nooooooo! I'm now on the march bus, bloody witch got me last night. Gutted.

Cycle 16 here we go..don't know how long I can keep this up!

MabelMay Wed 05-Feb-14 19:49:09

Keeping fingers crossed for you Gingerbread. Let us know what happens.

Hi mabel

Neg test but no AF yet, not feeling so optimistic now sad. I usually get AF 11-13 since positive opk test so not late yet, guess just too much crazy symptom spotting!

My drs referred me to fertility specialist after 6mths ttc due to age. Also bloods were off but think this wax due to crazy cycles, up to 64 days! Had loads of tests which was actually quite comforting. Mild pcos, put on clomid to regulate my cycles to give me more bites at the cherry so to speak!

It may be an idea to get checked as if anythings slightly out there may be simple things they can do to help (like me).

MabelMay Mon 03-Feb-14 22:51:59

Oh, and congratulations Bumpforme!

MabelMay Mon 03-Feb-14 22:49:54

Oh, just saw gingerbread that you got your 7dpo bloods done this month. I had same last month and my progesterone levels were high, (well he said they were 8 point something, and I don't really know what that means but he seemed to think it was a good sign) - hope yours will be too.

MabelMay Mon 03-Feb-14 22:47:57

gingerbread that sounds promising! Fingers tightly crossed for you. When is your AF actually due? Does it always come 14 dpo?

I feel okay about a fresh month ttc. But then the moment my AF arrives (as it has done the last 7 months, other than when I was PG twice last year, both ending in MC) I think - Okay, maybe I should get some help. I'm 39. But then once AF has gone I get in a more positive mood again and think "nope, no reason to feel negative. this is my month." But it never is! I know I'm ovulating okay and everything looks to be in order, except for mild endo, so we'll see....

Have you been doing or taking anything to help you along the ttc route?

Hopefully you won't be joining me in the early march BFP thread - I'll be watching this space carefully. Best of luck!

Gingerbreadlady1 Mon 03-Feb-14 21:12:00

Hi mabelmay nice to have you back! I'm 11/12 days dpo, got a bfn on fri (too early I know but was off to a wedding & wanted to indulge!). Little cramps started sat, thought af was on its way, then light brown (tmi?) spotting sun/mon. Sooooooo hoping its ib. Gonna poas tomorrow eeek!

This is ttc#1, cycle 15 so trying not to get hopes up but as you know, it's impossible!

How you feeling about a fresh month ttc? It's so hard when month after month it's a bfn.

MabelMay Mon 03-Feb-14 19:01:49

I've been hiding away since AF, gingerbread - starting to gear up for the next cycle... How's things with you? Have you POAS'd yet?

Gingerbreadlady1 Mon 03-Feb-14 18:39:40

All very quiet here.... (Tumbleweed blows through)

Bumpforme2014 Sat 01-Feb-14 23:16:37

Fingers crossed!

Gingerbreadlady1 Sat 01-Feb-14 22:49:27

I think they'll want to register you on the system so to speak so you can get booked in for your first scan. Aww, so exciting for you. I hope it happens soon but feeling crampy...doesn't bode well sad

Bumpforme2014 Sat 01-Feb-14 20:12:09

Not yet I read they don't wanna know until your eight weeks gone? Need to call them on Tuesday anyway because I got bloods done Monday before I knew I was pregnant. I hope you get your BFP x

Gingerbreadlady1 Sat 01-Feb-14 20:05:23

smile you booked your doc appt yet? Got my 7 dop bloods done yesterday, very interested in what they'll say.

Bumpforme2014 Sat 01-Feb-14 19:48:23

Hi gingerbread i had the same question, I think it's the day after. I'm feeling okay thanks very nervous but so happy :-) no more symptoms yet.

Gingerbreadlady1 Sat 01-Feb-14 18:54:14

Not from me, did a test yesterday, neg, but only 9dpo (is day 1 the day of positive opk test or would it be the next day?). How you feeling? X

Bumpforme2014 Sat 01-Feb-14 10:43:44

Any news?

Gingerbreadlady1 Thu 30-Jan-14 20:02:01

I'm so sorry mabelmay, it doesn't matter what i say to myself, every month it's a bitter dissapointment. I can only offer thanks and wine. And junk food.

Yeah, been referred, have mild pcos with very irregular cycles so I'm on month 1 with clomid. With every little twinge I think could this be it, then I berate myself in an attempt not to get too optimistic but you do anyway.

Come back when you feel like a chat xx

MabelMay Thu 30-Jan-14 19:31:38

ginger, I think AF may have just arrived. Small amount of blood when wiped just now after pee. I'm just going to go and hide in a corner for a while. I don't know why I let myself get hopeful every month. F**k it.

Have you seen a fertility specialist at all ginger or are you just shagging and hoping for the best still?

I'll come back later after I've had a little weep.

Gingerbreadlady1 Thu 30-Jan-14 18:54:00

You may be here for some time, appropriately named bumpforme2014!

Hi maybel, I'm with you on the cynicism front. I'm 38 so can't help hoping wildly but then it's been 15months with nothing, nada, zilch! Still, 14dpo sounds promising, and there's a bit of a bump-boom going on here so maybe it's catching!

How long dpo do you usually AF?
