Jennifer,

I am so sorry to hear of your son's passing. My daughter passed away 11 months ago today actually. She too was easy as pie to conceive. I think my husband and I just had to look at each other. Her sibling has not been so easy. My heart is with you and your family.

I'm sure the chart experts will chime in soon here, I've only been charting the past 8 months we've been trying to conceive. You mentioned you've been tracking a lot while charting. Have you seen changes in CM? That might give you a hand in pinpointing your O day to figure your LP. Right before O you'll have eggwhite CM, after it dries up pretty quickly. Also, are you temping? That might also help pinpoint your o day.

My thoughts are with you,
Lauren

I'd still encourage you to find out your TSH level if you can, and don't just go on the doctor's "normal" that everything is ok.

Hello,


Thought I would chime in... an FSH of 4.4 is fabulous, if it was done on cd3 or possibly cd2...

I too hope this next cycle will be for us! :)

Has your CM given you any solid information about when your O day is occurring?

I'm on 150mg of clomid to O (with trigger shot now). Without the clomid I wasn't ovulating. A big drawback to clomid for me has been that is messes with my CM by drying it out which of course makes conceiving more difficult. I tell ya, if it's not one thing it's another! :)

I monitor my cm, so I believe I've got a pretty good handle on when I'm going to "O". Good luck to you this month.

Hello,


Ok, lets see if we can get this down.. cd1 of the new cycle is the day you see blood- or my RE says if you start AFTER 6pm, then count the NEXT day as cd1... when you say last cycle started on 5-9, I am assuming you are counting May 9th as the very first day you saw AF, right?
