Frustrated!

I am VERY frustrated today!!!  According to my cycle I was supposed to O yesterday.  I have been doing the dumb OPK since the 10th and so far, nothing, nada, zip, zero, zilch! 


Let's top it all off with the fact that I have been having cramps, bloating and lower back pain since the week after my last period.  What is the deal?  Could is be another cyst that is causing this discomfort? 


I have an appointment with my GYN tomorrow and we are supposed to discuss scheduling as HSG to see how the ol' tubes are (since they were never checked before the first IUI).  I haven't had an ultrasound since the IUI, so another cyst is a really good possibility... 


It's just frustrating...  I just had the endocrinologist check my thyroid levels and my T4 is at 1.04 (supposedly ideal for conception) despite the fact that I have a large tumor (goiter) on my throid, so it's not that, that's keeping me from getting preggers. 


I would just like to know WHY I cannot get pregnant-  having undiagnosed infertility stinks b/c there is always a part of me that thinks DH and I can do this on our own...

I'm sorry Melinda. It is so frustrating when our bodies don't do what they are supposed to do!!

( ( ( ( H U G S ) ) ) ) It does stink. All of a sudden I'm not having AF anymore and I don't know why. I see my chances flying out the window and it stinks. I too have massive cramping but..... nothing. I'm hypothyroid and I feel like that (and my age) are keeping me from getting PG. I'm sorry your body isn't doing what it's supposed to do. I wish we could all get what we want.
