I am with you Crickett! I am 4dpo, moving down to 1WW technically I have a week left until my AF, if my luetal phase stays at 10! Good Luck at your appointment tomorrow! It is so nice to have a great doctor who listens! If this cycle is a bust, I'm going to head to mine too! I am anxious to be able to test and see, but I totally plan on waiting until atleast the 20th, we tried to be "laid-back" too! Hopefully it works! I think it helps that since my LP is so short, I could get a false negative if I do and I don't want to be disappointed! Keep us updated on your appt and testing on Sunday! :)

I am right behind you also. I am sitting at 6 dpo and had a little bit of a temp dip this am. I am thinking about not telling DH and testing on Sunday at 10 dpo (I got a positive at 10 dpo with DD) but I am trying to hold out until next Friday when FF is telling me to test. The 2 WW feels like its the longest 2 weeks ever in life. Good luck! I hope we all get a BFP this cycle.

Great to have some people join me in the forever 2ww it seems like :)!!! And unfortunately mine just got longer it looks like b/c ff just randomly changed my "O" to 2 days later :(. I really don't agree with it, and so I might stick with my original date, but this also means I probably won't be testing on Sunday after all b/c it will be too early. Also, moving my "o" date is NOT good for our timing, which seems to be our story every month!! So I am thinking I will test on Tuesday or Wednesday, but I am not very hopeful for this month now.

Angela- thanks for asking about my appt, it was absolutely fantastic. My Dr. sat and talked to me for almost an hour straight!! We went over all my cycles, issues, and what my concerns are. He reviewed my charts and issues with my LP, and he has decided to start me on Clomid to regulate my cycles. Also, I will go at 7 dpo on this next cycle to check my progesterone b/c he thinks I might have an issue there too. It was so nice to be able to talk to someone in person about this and I am confident he understands and is really wanting to help me!!! I can't really talk to my DH about this stuff b/c it really goes over his head, and we are not telling any of our family that we are TTC again so it becomes a huge weight for me to carry on my own all the time! Sorry for the little vent here but I just feel so relieved after yesterday. I am going to ask about Clomid on here too b/c I am a little worried about going on meds but I know with my cycle history I definitely need something so I am trusting that this is what I need to do!

How are you doing Angela? You should be O'ing soon right? Hoping for a great BD fest for u and DH this weekend :)

What a fantastic appointment! Its such a relief to know we are being *heard.* That's great that your dr has a plan but we'll still keep the hope alive for this cycle :) Can you share a link to your chart? Maybe we can help. Also, do you have VIP FF? If so, try switching the settings. Last month, FF changed my date too & I fiddled around & they gave different O's. I picked the one I liked better ;)

I'll be down in the 2ww soon. Hoping to O today or maybe tomorrow. Fx'd for a temp spike soon :)

Crickett that is so awesome! It's so nice to have a wonderful doctor. I am thinking about switching. My gyno said he won't do anything until a year and after I become pregnant, they don't see patients until 10 weeks! Well if I do have a progesterone problem, that's a little late! I had the doctor I work for order the blood test since I am 6dpo, hopefully ill find out soon! FXd for Us all!

I can tell you all about clomid! Any questions you have ask me. So far my body is responding great to clomid. I get the worst side effects though. It's nothing scary, just annoying. Mainly hot flashes, mood swings, and trouble sleeping. I got super constipated on it during my previous cycle so my doc told me to drink some v8 or prune juice during my clomid days. So I did that this cycle and it worked out fine. It also extends your LP!! Mine used to be 13-14 now they are 16 on clomid!

Ugh!! I absolutely hate seeing the temp tank :( Boo!!!!!!

As for sharing the FF link, I haven't had any luck setting up the fancy ticker you see in some siggies (maybe because I'm using my phone?) but if you go to the *sharing* folder at the top, right hand side & go to *setup*, you will find the *charting homepage web address* & you can copy that & paste it in your post.

Heres mine. It looks like this: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/33f345
