Hello everyone! I am new here and have a few questions. Here's my story...a bit long...
I am 36, DH is 32. We began TTC #1 in Sept 2009. We got pregnant in 6 cycles (Feb 2010) and were on cloud 9! When I went for my first appt. (at 8 weeks) with the OB/GYN, she just confirmed the pregnancy with a urine test and a pelvic exam. I scheduled my 1st ultrasound at 12 weeks. When she was starting the ultrasound, I immediately knew something was wrong (actually, I think I knew something was going to be wrong on the way to the appt., mother's intuition??). The tech asked me if I was sure I was 12 weeks and I told her I was 100% positive. As a TTC'er, we KNOW our dates!!! She told me she was getting the Dr. to do a transvaginal ultrasound. So, the Dr. confirmed that I had a miscarriage. I had no spotting, bleeding, cramping at all and had sore boobs, fatigue, etc. So, I went home numb, confused, sad... I had to search for what happened to me on the internet and I came across the missed miscarriage diagnosis which seemed to be what was happening to me. The next day after the ultrasound, I miscarried naturally. I was bleeding and cramping so bad I had to go to the ER. The days following my miscarriage was sad and dark, but today I can say I am filled with hope and the belief that I WILL be a mommy. :)
So, after the miscarriage, we waited for 1 period and then started to try again (Dr. was ok with this). We started in May, so far no luck. Now here we, Sept 2010, one year later. I decided to go to a RE to get some answers and not waste any more time as my age is against me (turning 37 in Nov).
I got blood work done on CD8 and my levels were normal. On CD12, they did a transvaginal ultrasound and saw a dominant follicle measuring 17mm, My lining was 10. On CD14, my follicle was 20mm and my lining was 12. My blood work at CD14 showed that I was going to ovulate very soon and the RE nurse told me to BD Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon.
I tired to temp this month too and I am just not sure if my temps are accurate. Looking at other charts, it seems that my temps are so erratic and look like some anovulatory charts on FF. Can someone take a look and let me know what you think??? I am new to temping and just want to make sure if it looks like an ovulatory cycle... Thanks for your help ladies. I have been stalking these boards for a few months now and love how helpful and caring you ladies are! It's very encouraging for people to come here and ask questions!! :)
