LOL!! Stick it in a cooler so the hcg doesn't degrade!

Your chart isn't totally classic but I think I agree with TCOYF about the ov date and the fact that AF is quite late. Definitely test!!

i wouldn't think you need a cooler if you're already late for AF...depending on how many hours the cup will be sitting...hcg doesn't deteriorate that rapidly. either way, good luck!

AFM: We have our BFP! I posted pics in the Blessed with Children Struggling for More thread. We are so happy- and we have this awareness of how completely lucky and blessed we are. We are still nervous because it is so early- I have my blood test Monday... So... Deanna- please go ahead and move me. Eek!!! I'm so excited!!! I will be praying for you all and hope there are many more BFPs soon!!!
so many congratulations! how many embryos did you transfer? i saw your tests...that was one dark bfp!

He thinks that he just couldn't handle any more. Last night I babysat 3 kids and we had 5 crazy kids around the table. I just looked at it and thought wow this looks right. Well evidently it stressed DH to the pony that he feels complete now, but "knows" how much I want another.

I told myself that I wasn't going to test anymore until AF didn't show up. Well I lied and have tested more than normal. After what I thought was a line. I just wanted to see it again and it just isn't there. So I guess DH was right, I am crazy. I feel like an emotional roller coaster so I am sure AF is just around the corner. 10 dpo.
haha i hit the irrational stick peeing phase every month, dont feel bad. you just want it really badly...i get it. also, insta-family is always going to freak someone out...at least with babies you get to gradually increase the insanity...so i wouldn't give up on hubs just yet.

Congrats on the BFPs!

I've had a rough couple of weeks. After a BFP in mid october, (which I wasn't expecting since I thought I had AF in early Oct), I found out on halloween that I lost that baby too. None of the OBs could figure it out really, best guess is that either it was ectopic and my body resorbed it, OR it was a late implantation that somehow briefly survived all of that bleeding. Either way, losing another baby in the space of 4 months has been really difficult. Not to mention that I had promised my BFF that I'd spend last weekend with her in CA. This would have been great, except for that she's due with her 2nd tomorrow, and I basically came out there to hang out because her husband was out of town and she didn't want to be alone if she went into labor. SHE is fabulous and has been awesome throughout the past few months, but it was so hard for me to be there, knowing that I would have been 22 weeks (with the 1st baby I lost), and having just come off of my 2nd miscarriage.

Sorry to be the depressing one, but that's just where I am right now.

We might try right away, or we might wait until next month. I don't know. My OB wants to put me on progesterone next time, but I don't really know how I feel about that. Anyone want to weigh in with their experience with it?
ever since my first m/c, i've taken progesterone...i use the prometrium capsules and take one orally at night (makes you sleepy/dizzy, great sleep aid!) and then one vaginally in the am...a little messy but not too bad, it absorbs into the uterus better that way. we stop taking it at 12wks...cant hurt if you dont need it and can really help if you do. it wont stop the inevitable if you're going to m/c anyway, but it can help with thickening the uterine lining and helping the egg snuggle in better.

Re: TTC 30+ Nov. 8-Nov. 18

Nice to see this thread back, I felt bad I didn't offer to take it over Deanna, I'm just such a slacker sometimes I knew I wouldn't keep it up properly.

AFM........I am 2 days late. 2 days late. So, my cycle has been typically a sucky 24 days for months now, with an lp of 10 days. Here I sit now at cd 26.

FF has been changed my O date about 5 times, from cd 13 to cd 14 and back again and then back again. And the last temp I added , ff changed my O date to cd 16. So, if it WAS cd 16 (which I totally don't think it was) then with a 10 day lp, I am on day 10. So maybe that's it.

But, if I am NOT pregnant, I think I will stop trying. I'm just at a stage in my life where I can see moving on from here. I would still love to have 3 kids, but otoh, I am now freaking out about everything a pregnancy and baby entails.

High risk preg, a third c-sec, gd with my last 2, a 10 lb 1 oz'er and a 10 lb 15 oz'er, 'fetal surveillance' due to our stillborn baby last preg, amnio because of my age and for my dh's peace of mind etc etc. OMG. What was I thinking?

I am FREAKING OUT quietly, haven't said anything to dh yet and have not tested. I won't test until I am most definitely late by any O date calculations. Have not even updated ff, took my last 2 temps, asked dh to write them down and date them and hide them because I just didn't want to see a dip heading for AF. Dh did not ask questions, wise man, just did as I asked.
I know he is only ttc for #4 because I want it. We've had this discussion and this is something he is willing to do for me, not because he desperately wants more, so I don't expect him to examine every symptom with me.

Yikes. I'll keep you all updated either way.


Edit: Af arrived, she was just late. Not too sure on continuing on the ttc route, it's doing my head in!

I'm going to go back to cheerleader. Love everyone's stories so I will absolutely stalk, but even though I just started, already need a break I hope things will look up soon-- but Dh seems to have flipped the tables.

I love the funny stories and seeing the bfps

I'm starting to feel the same way! If it doesn't happen this month I may take a break till after the holidays. There is just so much fun to be had during the holiday season and I don't want to be in this funk I feel coming on. Next month will be our 5th cycle trying and its getting depressing. We'll see.
