Whay hay thread 5! Xx

Going back to my last concerned note about temping. I also wasn't doing it orally 🙈 neither was I doing it in bed!. From 2moro morning it'll be done in bed orally (does it help to be the same time every morning too?!

DrewOB1 Sun 01-May-16 11:47:05

Hello !
Fingers crossed for everyone smile

Shellbell0403 Sun 01-May-16 12:07:42

Amy i do mine orally around the same time before I get up. If doing it the other way then it's always higher than orally would be!

drew how are you doing? Xx

DrewOB1 Sun 01-May-16 12:22:58

I'm alright, a lot of breast pains this month which never happens, as well as stabbing in ovaries, I guess wait and see.

Hello all

Quick place marking on the new thread! All ok here. I think anyway. Have had some very light spotting last couple of days. It's 5.5 weeks since m/c so could be AF. Hopefully it won't turn out to be some kind of retained something... I don't have any AF symptoms but I know this next AF is likely not to play by the usual rules. I guess I'll find out for sure in the next couple of days... hmm

Shellbell0403 Sun 01-May-16 17:00:38

Drew sending hugs!! Have the docs said anything else? Been for anymore scans?

spots fingers crossed it's AF and hopefully she behaves!!

How's everyone else doing? Xx

Shellbell0403 Sun 01-May-16 17:45:33

Well hello. Been on holiday and super busy at work so apologies for once again being barely present on thread 4. However, I'm in now.

AF finally turned up day 98, just as we got on holiday so that was a fun treat. Luckily only a UK holiday so not too big a problem. Anyway, new cycle now. Also finally have the elusive fertility clinic referral through and our first appointment next Tuesday.

Also currently considering Inositol, but not sure if it would be wise to start it just before seeing clinic for the first time? Any advice?

Mysteriousbat have you spoken to GP about no AF for such a long time? I would seriously suggest you need a hormone test doing for that length of time and something to induce a cycle flowers

Spotsondots Tue 03-May-16 07:20:00

Morning all

Well AF is definitely here now, after 3 days of indecisive spotting hmm I'm relieved as it means I can get on with trying again but slightly disappointed, even though j know it's silly, as DS was conceived directly following our first MC with no period in between. Not convinced I ovulated anyway as I had no post ov symptoms (usually get really tender boobs two weeks before AF). Hey ho! Onwards and upwards eh?

Hope everyone has had a good bank holiday and has a happy Tuesday. It's May - why is it so chilly? There's frost here (south coast of England!)

GeorgieF16 Tue 03-May-16 08:13:07

Hi all,
I was told I have pcos a year ago after a year of trying. In the last year I've had 5 af's,. We decided to stop tic #1 until after the wedding. Now the wedding is fast approaching (27th August) and I've started to start researching again. This time I've found there has been success with myo inositol and folic acid. Has anyone tried this? Tia x

DrewOB1 Tue 03-May-16 10:13:07

Hello all!
Ttc and work drama does not mix sad
3 months on inositol here. While still negative, I feel so much better and human taking it. Be careful with dosage though, too much and it stops working.

AmyC86 Tue 03-May-16 11:30:40

Hi all,

shell I'm from the Cheshire area.

So bloody pissed off this morning. On CD#1 I contacted the hospital for a folicle ultrasound as requested by my gynaecologist. They said that they would get back to me. Rang back a few days later & they said that they where still trying to fit me in etc.

Rang this morning, we can't fit you in due to holidays so the doctor has said for you to phone back on your first day of your cycle ( as if they're convinced that this round of clomid is destined not to work).

Just looked at private companies which do it and is quite steap at £120 (would usually probably have managed that payment but I've got my dogs castration this month too).

Feel so hacked off by it now. I wanted this scan so much because my bleeding temping is all over the place, three opks have been negative so I can only really go on CM and sheer luck sad

FrazzleRock Tue 03-May-16 16:33:42


I'm sorry I've been AWOL lately. After two weeks of unmistakeable pregnancy symptoms, I did a test and it was positive. Obviously we were extremely excited and amazed we were given a second chance so soon after our awful MMC.
Unfortunately I started bleeding only 5 hours later. This was last Saturday, so just over a week ago.
DP has changed his mind (again) about TTC. He spoke to a friend last week who scared him about childcare costs and now he's stressed because my ex isn't keeping up with maintenence. He said we just can't afford another one sad
My mind is all over the place right now sad

I'll probably duck out for a bit to get my head around things and hope that DP gets back to being excited about TTC again soon.

This is really quite shit.

AmyC86 Tue 03-May-16 17:07:08

frazzle nice to hear from you xx I've heard so many stories of couples deciding against TTC athe the moment, it must be so hard xx chin up and hopefully he will change his mind

susurration Tue 03-May-16 18:52:20

frazzle i'm sorry you started bleeding. Hope you're doing ok. I hope your OH comes round too x

spotsondots sorry to hear AF arrived, but new cycle, new chance and all that.

Amy bit crap about not being able to get in for the scan. Is it with a fertility clinic or just normal scanning unit?

Shellbell0403 Tue 03-May-16 20:45:03

Susurration glad to see you back 😀 Good to see you have an app through also!! I take pregnacare which had Inositol in it...just started that brand about 2 weeks ago!

Spots glad AF decided to stop being horrible and actually made an appearance. Means you can start dtd and a new approach 😗

Drew You are so right!! Ttc and work drama defo doesn't help!! How you getting on just now? Any further forward?

frazzle sending love and hugs!! I'm so sorry 😟 I'm sure DH will come around and hopefully he doesn't listen to his friend to much!! I think men just go off things to easy!! If you need to talk just message me xx

Amy no wonder your so angry!! They are supposed to set a date asap!! When I start taking my tabs the nurse schedules in my app there and then for day 11! Bloody complain!! I get mine at the fert Clinic though!! How's the temping going?

georgia welcome aboard

rosebud thanks honey!! Hope your well and back to join us soon!!

Think I've caught up! Sorry if missed anyone! I'm just waiting to see what's going on, currently in my two week wait! About 7 days in I think! Going for bloods tomorrow xx

AmyC86 Tue 03-May-16 22:31:31

My scan is just at the gynecology department in the general hospital xx

My temping is all over the place, I don't know what a going on with it. I've taken some advice and done the temping under the tongue in bed but it's still bouncing around all over the place. However, saying that, I'm having real issues with hot flashes during the night and mornings (side effects of the clomid) not sure if that's making a difference, or my themometre is shite

AmyC86 Tue 03-May-16 22:46:52

This is my recorded Temps since CD#2 sad

FrazzleRock Wed 04-May-16 10:02:23

Amy When I was temping 7/8 years ago, mine were the same. Like rocky mountains. I was told it was because PCOS causes surges (in LH? Or whatever it is that triggers ovulation) but doesn't actually mean we're ovulating. It was suggested to me to stop temping. I did eventually as it was driving me bonkers after temping for months and months and not even getting a period in less than 100 days at a time.
I eventually became pregnant with DC2. It took 11 months and in the grand scheme of things that is no time at all but, when you're in the midst of it and feel like it's never going to happen while all your friends are falling pregnant exactly when they want to, it felt like an age.

If you're getting regular periods then temping might well work for you, but it didn't for me because I could make no sense of it. I also had one of those saliva test things which was a load of bollocks and waste of effort and money!

FrazzleRock Wed 04-May-16 10:06:13

What I can say is, on a more positive note, that after having an HSG scan (where they chuck dye through your tubes to check for blockages), I fell pregnant with DS2 only about 2 weeks after. They are known for clearing minor blockages, so if you can have one of those done, then do it!

CwtchyQ Wed 04-May-16 13:23:31

Hi all. Sorry for falling off again. Hope everyone is okay and plodding on. Have I missed any big news?

So sorry Frazzle - too much for you to be going through really. I really hope you and DP can have an honest convo and move forward with TTC - it's not very fair on you this way, stopping and starting.

Any metformin users around? It seems to have worked a treat and I ovulated around CD38 I think, which is a massive improvement for my first cycle on it. I must admit I take 1000mg more often than I take 1500mg though.

Dunlin1987 Wed 04-May-16 14:27:25

Hi all,

I am back! Feel heartbroken. Lost my baby this week. Had an early scan and baby had no heartbeat. Had stopped developing around week 7/8.
