We've had 2 unsuccessful cycles of IVF. And now we've been trying almost  naturally (I'm on clomid for ovulation) for 10 months... We track  ovulation using the P.D tracking app, our doctors clinical notes... We  might just have to try clearblue!

Where do i start..  We started to try for a family in 1999, after having a miscarried and being told by the doctor that its a common thing for women to have miscarriages. Little did we know it would take us 7 years to have a beautiful boy, through pure miracle.
I tried ovulation kits bought from woolies, we tried using egg white (yes, from chook egg) to help with my vagina juices (sounds pretty gross, but when desperate try anything) i had massive amounts of pillows under my butt to keep it all in there after wild monkey dance, i went on cold medicines to try and help increase the vagina juices, went off coffee onto herbal drinks..  We tried all known alternative therapies - herbs, naturopath, reflexology, accupuncture, i saw a chinese herbalist, we tried iui, followed by isci x 3 times. First time no fertilized eggs, last two times lucky to have one fertilized egg which never took.  We had generic testing to find out there is no apparent reason why i cannot concieve, so decided to try the donor egg path. We asked our pastor to annoint us. We advertised in sydney child for donor egg and had 7 ppl reply our message, only to find out that i was already pregnant on my own egg.
Thus we have a beautiful boy through a pure miracle. He turned 5 years in January. We started to try again, knowing the long path of ttc asap, and have had 2 known miscarriages since..
Im ready for white flag, and to give up.. but each month goes by and my periods arrives and i read something new on the net, and have that little glimmer of hope that maybe this month might be the month for conceiving another beautiful miracle.. We currently using clearblue stix, and trying the moon ovulation cycles - never know what could happen and this is making hubby happy! (lots of wild monkey dances)

So for all those who are ttc baby no.1 dont give up.. It tooks us 7 years and if it can happen to us - it can happen for you too..
Good luck..

We're about to try for the first time. I've been charting periods, mucus, temps etc for the past 3months to know and understand  my cycle

Posted 22 March 2012 - 11:58 AM

Started trying again a few months ago,  and we use my hormones to tell me when it's the best time to conceive.  When I'm hormonally hot (like a menopausal old woman), I know I'm ready so it's on!!!      Worked last time, should work this time too (we hope!).

We only just started, and when 'I'm in the mood' we take that as a sign that it's time to conceive!!!   haha!!   I'll let you know how we go!!!

2 years and 2 heartbreaking miscarriages for us. We use fertility friend charting and OPKs to pinpoint ovulation, might try Clearblue for some better luck!

I thought we only just started trying but apparently my sneaky wife has been giving it a go for a fair while now!!  And I thought she wanted me for my body, not my seed biggrin.gif
She has it all mapped out on the calendar, in the kitchen!  All in codes that no one can understand but her!!


#14 gemgirl

Posted 22 March 2012 - 12:21 PM

We've been trying for 19 LONG months... and we use it all. Maybe Baby, CM monitoring, temping, OPKs, charting. The only thing we *haven't* tried is the Clearblue Digital Ovulation Test!  It might just do the trick! Well... that and a relaxing picnic, perhaps!

We have been trying to conceive for years and all I do is keep a calendar diary of my menstral cycle. I conceived a few years back but lost the baby at 18 weeks.  Maybe a romantic picnic would be the magic answer!

We were lucky to just fall pregnant with our first then had a miscarraige 12mths later. We have tried varies ovulation kits including saliva, yet found we needed like 3-4 packets because I wasn't regular with my periods.

TTC for 8 months, with the last month being the first cycle of chlomid due to not ovulating regularly and endometriosis.  To track ovulation, I use OPK's and go by my CM and the feel of my ovaries.

12 months +. Was about to start IVF and got a BFP in Feb this year but sadly we had a miscarriage.

I used to use OPKs and temp but after speaking to a FS he told me they had done their job and to BD every day between CD10 - CD15. It did the trick last month! I just hope it happens again soon.
