I'm back again. Not sure how this month will go was so sick with the flu the last two weeks I haven't done any OPK or been tracking I suspect I O'ed Sunday my tracker said it should have been around the 26th but with the weird delay in AF last month Im not holding out any hopes. Fingers crossed for you all. I've started on blackmores conceive well so let's hope that helps sort the recent inconsistent cycles out.

CD27, still no sign of O, bbt is my normal range, no other O signs either. Looks like this is another long cycle.

I'm CD20 today, thought I was gearing up to O today with darker OPKs and more CM, and then today... lighter OPK and less CM. So who knows what's going on.

PAL, sorry to hear you've got a hard date this week, I hope it passes gently.

Rowd I’m having similar problems, one day my opk will be nearly as dark as control line but next day will be faint but day after back to dark again, my CM is all over the shop. Not sure what’s going on.

Big hugs for those who are struggling at the moment. I’m sorry to hear June has been so hard for everyone. Thinking of you all, please remember you’re not alone.
Does anyone ever open up to friends? Or is it something you only share with partners and spouses? For me I largely prefer to keep things to myself, though for others it may benefit to open up and allow more support.

Fingers crossed babyblessed! I should be in the 2ww now. Not sure when I'll test. We're actually going on our honeymoon in July so there will be a bonus to not being pregnant!

Fingers crossed Babyblessed look after yourself. Everything crossed

Another announcement of a pregancy today again not planned by accident. I wish I could accidentally get pregnant like all the people I know haha.

I’ve told a lot of my friends what we’re going through, and it’s helped because a few of them are pregnant, and the rest have small kids and babies. Nobody has struggled with fertility or miscarriage and now I have with both. It helps because they know not to constantly talk about their own pregnancy or kids with me, and at least they’ll know someone this has happened to, since I don’t know anyone in real life and it’s been terribly lonely to feel like the only one who’s broken. Sometimes I do feel badly about it like they all pity me, but I’m probably just making that up in my mind. Conversely I haven’t told my family at all, except my one sister who’s in a same sex marriage and used ivf for their daughter. My other sister never really wanted kids and got pregnant within 3 months of their wedding, complained the whole time and it’s really been difficult to deal with her. I don’t want her pity so I haven’t told her anything. As you can tell I’m still feeling quite bitter about the whole thing, but sometimes sharing with friends makes me feel less alone.

Congrats beaches! A week isn't far off at all - how exciting! I have a friend who transferred two embryos recently and she is now 7 months pregnant with twins :)

YKG, sorry you are going through the same thing. It's so frustrating. I feel like I don't even have a chance of getting pregnant right now. Do you temp? I don't but wondering if I should start, as maybe I'll get a bit more info.

Hey guys,
I'm also back for June. 2 weeks post D&C, still getting faint positive HPT's. Last D&C it took 4 weeks for a negative and AF showed, so I'm almost certain I'll get AF in a couple of weeks and we will be out for the entire month of June, but I thought I'd jump in here anyway.

Struggling guys Posted Image

Our 3rd miscarriage wouldve been due this week on its daddys birthday and i haven't been pregnant since we lost this one (October!!)

Pal I'm feeling you :(
I'm struggling this week also. Our first MC would have been in my arms the last few days (elective csec), and our 2nd MC I'd be getting my NIPT results...

My sister is being induced tomorrow though, so I'll get a new little niece this week if nothing else...

I’m with you, I’m starting to doubt if I’ll ever have a successful pregnancy or get pregnant.
I do temp, my temps haven’t really changed, they have stayed pretty standard no rise at all, so another long cycle. My Fertility apps keep insisting I O’d on CD 19, I didn’t, no bbt rise, faint opk.

PP I don’t discuss with friends, they have all had standard low risk pregnancies, gotten pregnant really easily, so I say nothing the one time I did, I got “oh it took us 2 months”, that’s 2 cycles and all friends have admitted they had no clue when they ovulate and just BD randomly. Not really the best people for support or understanding when there are issues or takes longer than 2 months.

Well I think AF has arrived :(. Bad cramps spotting sore boobs and feel like I do the days befor it arrives. but it's a good week early. So gone from perfect cycle to 9 days later to 7 days early... This is so frustrating maybe it's the conceive well vitamins that I've been taking?

Back to CD1 for me as well, though right on time (tracked cycle). :(

On to the next month! I will get that referral to a FS - it's probably quite overdue.

Good luck to all those still in for June.

#66 #YKG

Posted 07 June 2019 - 12:00 AM

I think (could be wrong) that I’m about to ovulate or just ovulated, I had a weird tightening sensation around my right ovary area, I didn’t do an opk yesterday so no 100 sure, but guess I’ll find out tomorrow if my bbt rises. I’m on CD 29, so it’s a really late ovulation at this point.

Ohh exciting YKG! Hope you get your temp rise tomorrow.

No temp rise this morning, so hoping it’ll come tomorrow. So frustrating

Need some positive thoughts, or just thoughts. Decided to not do IUI this cycle and just try at least one more try naturally. I’m pretty sure I’ll ovulate tomorrow, just took my temp and it’s dipped from this mornings temp, so kind of expecting a dip or spike tomorrow morning.
Problem is dp went interstate for a boys weekend today, we only BD Wednesday night he’s not back till Monday, if I O tomorrow or Sunday given we only bd once this week, what do you think chances are we could possibly be successful this cycle?

O has been so hard to pin point this cycle, we got frustrated so went from every couple of days that were pointless to only once this week.

So temp dipped which means today is O day finally! CD 31!
