Hi Ladies,

Yaaay day off work today, so am frantically catching up on all the posts. Im sorry if Im behind the times with people, Ive tried to read up but this board moves so damn quickly!!

ETA: Caninestorm, I hope you do keep posting here! Me too!!


Tigerlily go the ferning???? Is this from the maybebaby you bought (quite a few posts ago)? Ive just recently started OPKíng, is this a different version of that? Im waiting for O too, hope its not too long away. I'm sorry about the meds, I think it was NSADS your were on, so frustrating when you aren't given all the info when they prescribe this stuff. I found out a little while ago that I was on a med that had low level contraceptive properties, so helpful while ttc'ing! NOT!

Molly I hate the 2WW too. Its worse than waiting to O. My DH travels alot as well, so I feel as if Im always chasing down O when he is at home so we don't miss our window of Opportunity. try to relax about that fallback rise.

*molly* I dont know what to say about your chart so I will let others speak. It just really sucks when it confuses us. Why can't it be simple

ditto from me too. its only 2dpo it seems like, on ff when you compare charts, lots of the temp graphs show these sorts of rises and some of them end up with + results. I hate it when your own body decides to play these games of peek a boo. Easily said I know, but try not to stress, Hope it sorts it self out for you soon, my fx for you.

beccajayne hi and welcome, even though I know you have been here for a while, I haven't had a chance to post to you yet. Good luck with your results today. Was it a general US or searching for some specific information? Hope the report has good news.

AFM, a couple of days ago started OPK's they have been negative so far but yesterday, I saw a faint line, so hoping O is on her way! DH is still home and really hoping Im starting the fertile time now. If I O in the next couple of days should be fine, cant tell from my temps if its close or not?

A big hello to everyone else here, Minnie4me and Bedge and those    ph34r.gif

I love Wednesdays!

I don't think I will bother valhalla, even though AF will be 5+ days late, it will only be classed as a chemical so nothing we could have done. Just hope it doesn't take another 7 months next time... sad.gif

Oh caninestorm, I'm so so sorry, that is just heartbreaking  cry1.gif  I'm so sorry this happened to you. Do you have someone in real life you can talk to about this? Have you told your DH?

Posted 12 December 2012 - 11:34 AM

Hi valhalla, good to see you back! Thanks for the words of encouragement. I'm starting to wonder if I o'd at all.

Hope your OPK turns positive very soon! I don't think there's any way of telling from temps whether it's close or not, unfortunately!

So sorry to hear this caninestorm sad.gif your puppies should be making you feel very loved though. Maybe you should still go for a blood test just in case its not being picked up on the HPT? your temp is still high. bbighug.gif



valhalla007 yeah the maybe baby salivia tester. Been doing it every morning after I take my temp. ATM using it on conjunction with OPKs hopefully I will still O just fine even taking that stupid medication! You might see your OPKs get darker as you get closer or it might just be BAM dark after lots of light ones. Once you get a positive OPK you should keep doing them until it goes negative.


*molly* You might see it slowly rise back up again.. I still think you O'd Sunday with a fallback rise.

caninestorm  bbighug.gif  Im so sorry.  Any signs of AF yet?  I would still go to the dr even if its just to get it recorded.  So if you need to go the AC route in the future you have a medical record of chemical pregnancies.  Thinking of you, this just sucks   bbighug.gif

Posted 12 December 2012 - 12:51 PM

Tiger-lily Looks like the ferning is working original.gif

*molly* I agree, I think you've already Oed.  Try not to stress too much about your temps, the overall pattern is more important than the individual days.

valhalla007  Get busy with DH dev (6).gif Hope your OPK is + soon

AFM Im going to start testing with OPKs today and Im really hoping O happens soon!!

Caninestorm, I am so sorry you have to go through this. Fingers crossed you get a sticky very soon


Valhalla007  waves.gif
      ultrasound was just to check there is nothing stopping me from falling pregnant.

Looks like all is clear, there is no medical reason for why we haven't fallen pregnant. On my side.
Now to get dh tested, gosh that is going to be fun....Not

I am also back to light almost spotting now. Guess I should be happy I have a short af but it makes me think there's something wrong. Hopefully it settles down soon.

Now the only time I can get dh tested is during his 8 days off over Christmas but.... I am due to ovulate around that time  closedeyes.gif  we need to decide if we get the testing done or not. Dh needs to abstain from sex for 3 days before so it means we have to choose one.

Just looked at the report and was curious.
It says my endometrial thickness measured 3mm, this is after a day of spotting and half a day of light flow. I googled and its made me worry a bit. If its only 3mm at cd 2, let's say, then how do I know it got thick enough for implantation to occur?

I didn't see the report till I got home and the dr just told me everything was fine.
There is some other measurements but google didn't help, so they don't worry me.

I would enjoy your xmas break and do the sample later.  In the whole scheme of things one month wont make much difference and you never know you might get a BFP

How thick is it meant to be for implantation?  And do you know how quickly it decreases once AF starts?

#16 beccajayne

Posted 12 December 2012 - 04:38 PM

From what I can gather from google the average is 5mm at af so I guess I kinda got worried with the 3mm especially since af has been light this cycle and last cycle.
If the dr wasn't concerned then I guess I should stop googling.
It's more the light flow that's got me stumped.

I was thinking of enjoying the Christmas ovulation and hopefully not needing to follow through on testing dh. Much more fun.


Seems like the lining needs to be above 6mm but average for implantation is 8mm. I guess if you give another 10 days my 3mm would be more.

beccajayne I reckon you should do just that enjoy the christmas break and if it doesn't happen try and get DH in for testing original.gif I don't know anything about what thickness things should be though... FX you get a BFP this cycle anyway original.gif

Hi Mags!  waves.gif  You can put me down for the dreaded 2ww.

Pippa and tiger-lily, you're probably right, I think I O'd on Sunday too. Will be interesting to see tomorrow's temp!

Becca, I'm not sure about uterus lining thickness, hope your doc can shed some light for you tomorrow.

Caninestorm, I hope your puppies are taking good care of you. Animals always know when something's wrong, don't they!

Posted 12 December 2012 - 06:53 PM

Mags, do you have any updates from your end of the woods?  unsure.gif

Molly the puppies have been good. The youngest one hates when I am upset, and attempted to shove a toy in my face for a few minutes. When I didn't like that, she went and hid under the bed. "Mum's angry, I'll wait here"!  Such a sensitive soul. My other big one cheered me up when he told the postie (through the fence) in no uncertain terms, that he should leave our property immediately. And it worked! So he shall do the same thing tomorrow...  laughing2.gif (Sorry, I'm a crazy dog lady).

This thread has certainly had a bad run of chemicals lately sad.gif  bbighug.gif to everyone.  Still ph34r.gif Wombie...

Just quickly - caninestorm, I'm so sorry love. AF started in full yet?

Molly do you check your CP? That has helped me a bit in determining my actual O day.
