More obsessing about eps for me today! Its a joke though I've been for a wee 7 times already since I've been up! Ok i had a large coffee and have been quite literally laid out for 4 days with a bad cold so maybe getting rid of fluid retention?  I've still got weird feelings down there. Can only describe it like prodding or like im internally bruised but have had no BD for over a wk as DH is away!
Please just Ignore me I'll carry on obsessing ...it'll all come crashing down by Friday then im defo trying Preseed next cycle! wink.gif

Hi there ladies!
Just a quick message to say i'm really sorry to hear you are back countrychic but I hope you are doing okay and I think it's great that you are ready to jump back on the bandwagon. There have been several ladies on here who have got a sticky BFP on the next cycle after their MC, so fingers crossed you do too!

Also, kateydee - I just wanted to let you know that I had a really really long cycle the first cycle i did acupuncture.. So did alot of other women on here. I googled it at the time and apparently it's completely normal. My O went from CD14 to CD24 that month!! Then back to normal the next and improving every month after that. So, as frustrating and expensive as it is, try not to get too disheartened just yet. Maybe speak to your witchdoctor and ask her to cut back your visits to no more than once a week? Or even less. She is there to help you, and if you are honest with her and how much you can afford, then it is her job to help you within those means. Good luck!


AFM, heading back to the doctors on Friday for all of our test results!! Yay!!

Big hi's to everyone else!!

Oh Countrychic - I'm so sorry.  You may not feel this at the moment, but the dark days do eventually get less painful and you learn your own way of accepting the grief.  We're all here for you if you want to scream, cry, yell or do whatever.  We're also all here thinking of you and supporting you if you don't want to talk.  xxx  bbighug.gif  hheart.gif

Allie - your description was enough for me, LOL! But why-o-why do I seem to be the only female with a zinc deficiency worse than her man's?  

BIAP - fx for Fri xx

KateyDee - I'm still waiting for O confirmation - think today might have been the dip and hoping for a rise on Wed.  It's hard staying positive when it's late, but try to stay positive that change takes a while and next cycle will be better.

AFM - I'm trying to let go of my anger/pain/hurt and focus on me.  I need to be relaxed and happy for TTC so will try to focus on doing whatever I need this week so that can happen.  Thanks to everyone for your love & support - you girls are fantastic! xxx

Thanks ladies. Yeah, I'm thinking the acupuncture might just be playing up with my cycle this month. Like I said, I got my +OPK's 3 and 4 days ago, and in the last 2 days my EW CM has almost doubled (I feel like I'm drowning in it!) so hopefully O isn't far away. Or maybe O was yesterday because I got a temp rise this morning, although it didn't rise above my coverline temp of last month, so I have my doubts.

Countrychic, I'm so sorry to hear about your MC, from a fellow mumma of an angel baby, I can relate. And I just wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts  hheart.gif

CountryChic Hope your ok and sending my love XXX

I'm having the most heavy, yucky AF than I have ever had before, on CD 5 and its still as heavy as day 1! Hoping this a good sign after the HSG so hopefully more luck this month.

countrychic, sorry to hear about your MC sad.gif hope you are feeling okay, stay strong x

Side note - I hardly ever go on other forum threads on EB, but I just headed over to the 'Miscelleaneous' board and was shocked by members being so b*tchy to each other! Glad we have a nice, supportive group here biggrin.gif

Thanks Everyone, yes i did read that the next cycle after mc can be very fertile and sticky, heres to hoping anyway. I'm not doing to badly so far but have a habit of crashing down a few days afterwards.. hopefully not on DH's 30th this weekend hands.gif
Sorry it will take me awhile to catch up with the goings on of the last few weeks.
Katydee - acupuncture took me a few months to get my cycles regular and every now and then if i wasnt looking after myself properly my body might throw in a 21 day or 28 day cycle just to confuse me, keep at it and i'm sure you will see results.
BIAP - good luck with the test results
AllieD - interesting about the zinc, i know its important for libido but didnt know you could test
Huxley - obsess away, the more attention you pay to your body the better you will know it, before i got my BFP i thought i was being ridiculous there was no way the sore boobs, tiredness and slight nausea meant i was pregnant i mean it was only our first TTC cycle. rolleyes.gif who knew.

Looks like it's been a bit eventfull over the weekend here! So much going on, I had 9 pages to catch up with!

Mrs_H - I take elevit, I've never had a problem with it, though I have always taken one sort of multi-vit or another. I also have low iron levels, so iron certainly doesn't contipate me.

Sunshiney - Oh, that is just such a sucky situation! I'm glad you were able to respond to your sister truthfully though. *hugs* and good luck.

Hooloovoo - that is amazing new! Congratulations! biggrin.gif

Meg88 - I could not wipe the grin off my face when I read your great news just then! I am so very happy for you. biggrin.gif

CountryChic - I'm so sorry you have been through a MC. I stand with KateyDee, and we are here for all the support you need. I'm also getting back on the bandwagon this month. DH and I decided to wait a few months before starting again after a D&C in Feb.

AFM - My PG radar is still in good working condition, I've been suspicious for the last couple of weeks about a Woman at my work being PG. Today it was confirmed. So happy for her!
So, talking about this being first month trying again, I'm STILL waiting for AF to turn up. And I'm now a little confused. Usually, I have between a 26 - 28 day cycle. I'm currently on CD30, so not majorly out of wack, but still 2days off is weird for me. I'm wanting AF to come quickly, so then O will be sooner rather than later.

Now, for the ever present question, although we weren't trying, could I be PG? Well, I don't think so, only BD'd once on the day after AF finished, so in theory it would be possible if a) DH's sperm lastest 7-9 days and/or b) I O'd early.
BUT I'm not even sure I have O'd this cycle! (I go off EWCM only, and I haven't had the usual stuff this cycle, but I know that doesn't necessarily mean I haven't O'd).
Plus, I have had NO EPS, and one thing to be thankful to a MC for, is knowing what EPS felt / feels like.

So, I'm expecting AF to come in the next day or two, and to just have had a long cycle, possibly a little out of wack being the 2nd cycle after a D&C? (For all I really know my iron levels could be uber low, which would certainly delay AF).
And to be perfectly honest, I'd feel more comfortable with AF at the moment, as I had mentally got myself ready for starting again in April (though obviously if I was PG I'd be over the moon, LOL)

Thanks for listening all, and I hope everyone has a great week!

Hi, just a quick post to say Countrychick I'm so sorry for your loss. Hope you're doing OK. bbighug.gif

Posted 10 April 2012 - 07:46 PM

Well after 2 days of not doing OPK's (I stupidly ran out of them), I did one today and I've got a very definite negative. So I would have though I'd ovulated by now seeing as though I got 2 +OPK's 3 and 4 days ago? It seems I had my surge and now it's over.

My temps suggest otherwise though....

Gee whiz, who knows.  blink.gif
