Thanks for the new thread tee

Perfect thanks tee.

Really don't think it's hcg, I think I have an ovulation issue. It keeps attempting it!!
I have higher FSH level than I should so gp referred me to a gyne which is in Thursday. I think the high level of FSH is sending the LH to go crazy. Although I am convinced I have ovulated as I get a dip then an elevated temp for 5 days. Get lots of EWCM too with tingly nipples- etc.. So don't think I'd get all this without ovulating??

I do have a FRER here but don't want to waste them as I rally think AF will happen in next day or so. I've ordered some IC hcg tests, so will wait for those. Will keep doing the opks and see if they stay positive. No EWCM at mo..

Hmmm that's confusing for you Footprints. Hopefully your specialist will be able to explain what's going on. It certainly does sound like you have had all the right signs for ovulation.
Just about to watch One Born Every Minute... tissues at the ready then! confused

Waves ladies flowers
Cd8star.thanks for the new thread tee. Here is hoping for more bfps in May !!

That's rather confusing footprints, I can imagine how often u will have to dtd. Hope you get answers on Thursday and thanks for diet.

Headache still persisting, eeeish and fw has began when I am such a mess.

SuchaJem Wed 27-Apr-16 14:20:22

Ooh thread 2, hello smile

Cycle 5

footprints another one?! Lord how confusing. I'm glad you are seeing a specialist and can hopefully get to the bottom of this.

tee getting started early is a good idea. I would have too but DH is at work until Friday envy I am very glad he is home for FW next week!

Mimilicious013 Wed 27-Apr-16 14:28:41

Waves jem ,glad dh will be around fw. Mine is playing tricks and gotta start dtd already if we don't want to leave any stones unturned angry

Tee4me Wed 27-Apr-16 14:55:29

Ah Mimi, sorry to hear you feel rubbish. You know, DTD can help relieve tension headaches?! I fell really poorly towards the end of my last fertile window, it's horrible to know you're at your peak but too ill to think about it. Hope you feel better soon!
Jem! Lucky DH is back for FW, that's the most important thing. Perhaps get some 'warming up' in over the weekend wink
BTW I've updated my test date to 21st, as I've realised I have a hen do in the evening!! xx

Parney Wed 27-Apr-16 15:12:48

January, I only tested on day AF was due, tests have been dark. Only the ICs aren't as dark as test line yet. Other brands are darker.
Ah Tee it's great to have something to look forward to on test day. I felt that if I'd been given a BFN that at least I had really good plans lined up!
Mimi Headaches are tough to deal with on top of all the rest. Hope that changes soon.
Jem you'll be busy next week, thankfully he's about!

Parney Wed 27-Apr-16 15:14:24

But I've a sneaky suspicion I'm dehydrated so hormone levels higher in concentrated urine. Drinking lots of water today. Relax January and don't panic, I didn't think your lines yesterday were faint!

Mimilicious013 Wed 27-Apr-16 15:24:18

Thanks tee and parney. Just received a call from dh and he says he is feeling poorly((meaning my chances of dtd at the right time is not likely))

I think the graduates must write their weeks too as they begin their posts, that will keep us all in the know grin

physicskate Wed 27-Apr-16 16:10:28

So I've just sent FF into meltdown because I've had a very very very close to being positive OPK, so I will test again this evening to see if it's darker... or it might be on the way down. I only had a super faint line yesterday. So gonna text OH to let him know what to expect tonight!! Will keep temping to confirm, but it might happen tomorrow or day after... Which would mean I would be testing earlier, more like 10th if AF doesn't show before then...

Mimi I have no idea what I will do if he says he's too tired! I think I might get a little mental!!! Think someone else mentioned they were getting a wee bit aggressive with all this TTC and broodiness.

Footprints how very confusing??!! Hopefully doc will have answers for you....

Racja14 Wed 27-Apr-16 17:46:43

Hi everyone!! waves
Sorry have been MIA but I work in the NHS and this week has been crazy as you can imagine!

CD 18
These are my OPK's days 12-18, still no positive but EWCM today so I'll be cosying up to DH tonight wink

I've got my pineapple and nuts ready, hoping for a sticky bean over the weekend smile

SpreadOnToast Wed 27-Apr-16 17:47:41

footprints what is FSH? If you don't mind me asking, that is! Your symptoms are sounding very preggoed to me. Are you sure you don't want to break the seal on your FRER? smile

mimi hope your headache shifts! Hopefully your hubby will get the hint later ha!

It is hard to make dtd seem non-enforced in the fw haha!

SuchaJem Wed 27-Apr-16 17:52:38

mimi perhaps some 'get well soon' sex?

physics aggro for sure. DH is now used to sex on demand! Although I do still get complaints "this feels so forced!" etc. Shaddup and get on with it smile

Hi racja! Get on it!

physicskate Wed 27-Apr-16 17:55:48

Jem if I could 'like' that comment, I would! This is still a bit new for us (being cycle #1 and all), so not quite sure how he will react to that!

Racja14 Wed 27-Apr-16 17:58:27

Sucha my DH says exactly the same about it being forced!! I tell him he'd soon be complaining if we weren't doing it! Tried to explain to him that at my age I need to do everything I can to give us the best chance of conceiving but he still was like 'if it happens, it happens' so now I feel like I'm sneaking around doing OPK's and eating walnuts when he's not looking grin

Put a pillow under my bum after dtd the other day and the way he went on was ridiculous, just wait till I start putting my legs up against the wall grin

Racja14 Wed 27-Apr-16 18:01:58

Oh and I can't even watch OBEM when he's home as according to him he's 'seen one birth (his DD) and that's enough to last him a lifetime' 😕

Footprints1 Wed 27-Apr-16 18:33:59

Spread on toast- FSH is follicle stimulating hormone. It stimulates the ovaries. FSH levels can change month to month so I'm hoping it does so I can conceive. If it's too high you can be in menopause, perimenopause or just stressed! If it's too low you don't have AF or ovulate. If too high you can also not ovulate or it will be erratic.
Sometimes if you have been on pill for long time your ovaries take a longer time to wake up. If they are asleep the FSH goes into overdrive trying to do its job so therefore makes it produce too much hormone.

Tee4me Wed 27-Apr-16 18:39:38

Ha! Jem that did make laugh!
Jeez what are all these men moaning about! My DH is very much like 'if it happens it happens'. Seems like a silly attitude to have to me when you've made a decision to TTC... I mean, if you want to bake a cake, you don't just throw a load of crap in a bowl and say 'meh, if it happens it happens', you take measurements and follow a recipe, if you want best chance of getting it right?!
My hubby told me the other day he wouldn't care if it happened now or in 6 months, charming!! (although secretly I wish I could feel like that). I definitely have to save OBEM for when I'm home alone, he'd think I was a lunatic if he knew I shed a tear for every birth! Can't help it! confused

Footprints1 Wed 27-Apr-16 18:42:23

CD 26 star

Mimi- definitely some get well sex. Play nurse! wink

Racja- you can't win, when we want it they don't ! when they want it.. They get it anyway! Totally unfair. Oh my DH won't watch one born every min either.

So here comes the EWCM.. Think I'm in for a long long cycle. If I can't ovulate effectively it will just keep on trying.. And I'll be exhausted from dtd every week until it happens! sad have cramps too. Weird! Not testing yet. Will wait see what my temp does tomorrow. It dipped this morn so I guess if it goes up again it's ov again!?!???

Racja14 Wed 27-Apr-16 18:52:43

Ha ha Tee love the cake analogy, I'll have to remember that one! I'm sure they play that music on OBEM when they deliver just to make me cry!

Racja14 Wed 27-Apr-16 18:58:32

Footprints glad to hear it's not just me! They don't realise how easy they've got it, we're the ones who do all the hard work after all!
