How much do you guys weigh?

I've lost a couple of kilos but it's so hard at the moment. Is it purely for weight loss or infertility too?

I saw my doctor and was pretty much told everything that can be done, has been done. I still have spotting/lining shedding at  CD14, so doubt I will O any time soon. I'm getting really frustrated.

I weigh way too much. I’m 11kg heavier than I was when I was pregnant earlier this year with a BMI of about 39. Not that I like the BMI method much but it seems that’s how the GP’s confirm eligibility for duromine. 
it is considered a class B drug which has had tests done during pregnancy but she said to me if I find out I’m pregnant to just stop. She also said she wants to see me every 3-4 weeks

I looked it up and it's for BMI over 30. Mine is around 36, so I might ask for a prescription.

I’m Cd6 so good timing! Fingers crossed it makes me extra fertile! I’m feeling it may give me extra energy to get more BDing in 😂😂

I just started bleeding 😩 even though I was really keeping my hopes at bay, I'm gutted. Given my not-darkening tests and the bleeding (plus backache and mild cramping now too), it definitely looks like we're just having a repeat of last month. Two chemicals in a row.

I have been lurking this month and my heart goes out to everyone. 😔 I am so sorry for everyone’s struggles. 

I wasn’t feeling hopeful this cycle and managed to not test until this afternoon, got a BFN promptly followed by AF a few hours later. If only I had held out a bit longer I could have saved a test..

@simbacom I’m so sorry. I’ve been lurking in the background a bit and I’m sorry this is happening. Be kind to yourself..

 

AFM, I’m CD18, although I’m so sick with a head cold (currently waiting at the Covid testing centre). We BD’d on Friday & Sunday and are supposed to go again tonight according to clinic instructions, but I’m so sick I don’t think I can. Also my CM dried up as of Saturday morning. So all signs point to the fact that I ovulated days ago. So I should be all good right? It’s so annoying thinking that we’re not taking every opportunity after all the money and injections but what will be will be I guess.. And my instinct is telling me it’s pointless to force another BD tonight. So I guess I’m in the 2WW now! It’s been so long out of the TTC community I can’t even remember the process 🤣 I think I’ll go in for a beta test late next week 🤷‍♀️

I’m so sorry simbacom. I hope you’re ok, it’s so hard to have such a low when you are chasing the high. Fingers crossed next month is yours!

10dpo here. Toddler is at daycare so I couldn’t resist and peed on a IC test. There is the faintest of lines, so decided to test on a FRER. No line on the FRER. It was tested with new wee that was very unconcentrated, I hope that’s the reason it didn’t show anything! Lesson 1 in why not to test early: still don’t know if I’m pregnant or not 🤦‍♀️

Hi Everyone,  

Just thought I would join in here again.  On the TTC train for #2 we have a beautiful 14 month old boy after 4 years of trying including Ovulation induction, 5 IVF cycles which all failed.  We fell pregnant naturally as a complete surprise after taking time off from all treatments.  I have Endometriosis and PCOS.  We have not used birth control since bub was born but now we are actively trying.  I am just using the flow and ovia apps on my phone.  Can't use OPK's due to my PCOS. I do have regular (ish) periods. I try and rely on CM.  We had a miscarriage at 6 weeks a couple of months ago which was really hard.  However I try and keep hopeful in the knowledge that it actually happened.  My only other positive preg test was my boy. Not trying to have a pity party I know I am so blessed.  I think I just want to say that I have been in the deep dark places that TTC can take you.  I have been told to relax and it will happen, go on holiday etc, your embryo is not viable, etc etc, you have cysts on your ovaries, we collected no eggs.... 

I just want to wish you all the very best on your journeys and try and keep hopeful.  Miracles can happen even though you might not believe it .

Right now I am CD 22 , we BD on days 11, 13, 15 and 16 so hopefully caught something haha.  TMI - I didn't have any EWCM this month but my CM has been higher , it was watery and sticky thoughout that period of BDing so fingers crossed.

My BMI is 18. When I was about to TTC number 2 my BMI was 16 (we had gastro 4 times over 3 months) and my GP suggested I put on some weight. 
 

Sarah121212, so your specialist said at 47 your only option is donor eggs and they won’t do ivf with own? That sounds right from what my friend who is 43 was told at her IVF appointment. She was told anyone 43-45 they will let them do one cycle then switch to donor eggs. 
she decided not to go through with it as she already has 1 child that she conceived through IVF at 40. 
how are you coping emotionally with hearing that news?

Has anyone noticed how many freakin babies are around at the moment?! Every time I look online it's baby baby baby lol. So annoying lol. 

AFM I'm on cycle 4, ovulating tomorrow or next day. Then the excruciating wait.

Hopefully one of us has some luck soon x

Hi all 😁

I'm new to the forum, so Hi! 👋 Hubby and I are not actually ttc until December so I'm just being a bit of a stalker until then 😅

I'm 36 ttc #4... Just trying to track my cycle atm. Just had mirena removed at the start of September so still waiting for a bit of regularity.

DH normally takes a certain medication that can cause deformities in babies if you get preg while on it, so he has recently switched to a different medication, but we have to wait 3 months for it to clear his system.

Bring on December 6th! 😁

Good luck and baby dust to all of you!

Thanks all for your kindness. Baby dust to the rest of you, and sending patience for those in the TWW. I hate the tww so much lol I am the world's most impatient person, I swear. 

CD1, C4 of trying... Really planning on working on reducing inflammation and stress on my adrenals this month so I'm gonna really go ham increasing the fruit and veg (smoothies here I come, lucky it's getting warmer), no more soft drink and also gonna try and reduce my caffeine intake and swap some out with mushroom coffees. So we'll see if that helps. Obviously I can't fix a bad dna combo but if it's my uterus that's struggling to accept the embryo, I should be able to help that a bit. 

I'm thinking we should start an October group?

I've started the October group, a little different with something I've seen on other forums, starting with a list of the month for who is testing when so it's at the start and easier to find and follow. I'll edit it with everyone's due to test dates if you wanna tag or quote me 🙂
