 I can not believe the year is coming to an end soon. Wow, where has time gone? It only seems to drag by after ovulation. Share symptoms, test results and vent frustrations. Sending sticky baby vibes and baby dust to all.

Hi Ladies,  So good to see everyone in here, I have had really patchy contact with the boards since the change over and not been able to get on to some and some I can get into but cant see replies.

Finally I can see replies, hopefully I'll be able to see my own comments as well.

Hi Vickie,  just in case my other replies in the AVA board dont show up, thank you for your help in passing those concerns to the tech people I am using google chrome on a PC.  Hope things are going well for you and this new cycle.  hugs and fx.

hi Bonnie, change it up, different is good, fx for you. Hope you get your bfp soon.

Hi Kristy, So happy you have been able to log back in, we were mid conversation at the point of the change over in the boards system.  Your cycle is only 2 days behind mine.  I believe hope and expectation is what keeps us going on this rollercoaster ttc journey and makes it possible to keep going.  Those symptoms sound really positive, Im going to be impatiently awaiting your testing! I also have vivid dreams about babies and conception too (at least with my other 2 I did), and the funny thing is my mum and sisters all had the same or a similar dream on the same night.

AFM I am going to be vicariously, stalking the testing this month as Im out this month Frown as I have had a dud cycle with no definite O day according to my ff chart, however I didn't know about the whole cm thing so didn't record it, mind you my af was very late, very long, and very horrible and seems to be reappearing every second day. I am in cycle 6 on CD22, and currently on a 10 day course of progesterone to stop (tmi warning) bleeding and have no idea if this will affect my O, or abiltiy (if I still have any) to conceive?? Its so upsetting.  Am seeing my obgyn on 5 December, hoping for some enlightening and positive info, and feeling terrified all at the same time as this will be my first appt with an obgyn ever. In the meantime I have been temping religiously every morning before I get out of bed since cd11 (Im so proud!!), and have set up a fertility friend chart. At least it will be some info for the obgyn appt on dec 5, anyhoo feelin' SOOO proactive!! even if this cycle has been the ickyist cycle in the history of cycles!

I'll be in here stalking for bfps over the next 2 weeks. (sorry this turned into a long essay)

hoping for baby dust and sticky bfps.

Hi Ava!  It's so good to see you back hereSmile  It took me a while to be able to get back on, too.  We were right in the middle of our conversation!  BFN for me last month...we'll see this month.  I haven't had any new or increasing symptoms in the past few days, so I'm guessing not this month either.  I'm 10 dpo--so probably too early to test.  I'm thinking I'll test Friday just for kicks, unless my temp drops.  You mentioned starting to chart.  That's great!  When I first started trying to figure out my cycles (my first son was conceived with injectibles and IUI), I read Toni Weschler's book Taking Charge of Your Fertility.  It correlates perfectly with Fertility Friend and is packed full of helpful information.  I still refer to it occasionally and it even helped me figure out (with my charting) that I had a thyroid problem.  I'd highly recommend it!

Hi Kristy, I have to read that book, interestingly enough my mother has a thyroid problem.  I also need to build some fertility knowledge, how embarrassing Embarassed and at my age Laughing too.

I am, as usual, when there is something to deepen my obsession with the ttcjourney, finding I cannot help but constantly go onto the FF page and try to get a guage on it all.  I'm so inexperienced with interpreting the data that it isn't easy for me to see what's happening, except that this is an obviously horrible, and hopefully one of a kind for a while cycle. Im just continuing to chart to attempt to build some data history into my charts for the future charts.

I will be stalking you on Friday for your test, Im guessing its a little early but you never know...fx and positive thoughts your way.

Bonnie, sorry AF showed, Frown, I am again just hanging on waiting for her to visit me again.

I already posted I am out this cycle, but as I come to terms with reality, I think I am out. period.  I have decided to concentrate all our efforts into our adoption. My daughter turned 10 a few months ago, and for the last 8-9 years I have obsessed with trying to give her a sibling... well, I just turned 42, I've bascially been TTC for 17 years... and I've decided, I'm out! DONE!  We will have a child grow in our hearts and not my belly.  If it happens, I will be beyond happy, but I am done with the anticipation of each month, temping (Well, haven't been great at it these last two months), charting. Done. The TTC, HPTs, and BFPs have become my idols... and I'm releasing them... I have been feeling I am done for a while, just haven't verbalized it... 

I sincerely hope to read much anticipated BFPs in the months to come... You ladies have been amazing... Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Best wishes!!!

Bonnie I don't know what to say, its hard when we cant walk in the footsteps of another to know truly how they feel, but I so understand, and hope that you are soon growing that baby in your heart equally a rainbow baby for sure.

I so hope you pop in to let us know how your doing.

Since I have been on these boards I have always seen your posts, and I will miss you.

Bonnie, I wish you all the best with the adoption quest!  I certainly understand the fatigue with TTC and feeling obsessive over HPT, temping, charting, etc.  I  have several friends who have adopted children and they have the most beautiful families!  Have you finished the home study yet?  I'll be thinking of you!

Well...I am shaking!  I got up at 4:30 when my husband left for work, took an HPT, put it in the cabinet without looking at it, and went back to sleep.  I started my morning with a short devotional and read the bible verse that was SO helpful when everything came crashing down around me in my last pregnancy, Proverbs 3:5-6.  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding: in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.  (I've been meaning to start my day this way for a long time, but finally did today.)  I washed up and then looked at the HPT.  I didn't see anything at first and started to throw it away, but then noticed a very, very faint (but definitely there) second line!  Oh my gosh!  I am 12dpo, so I know this could a chemical pregnancy, but I am so excited and nervous...and sick with worry already!  Well, I guess I'll see what the next few days hold....Blessings to everyone!

Ava, yay for charting! It's not that hard once you get the temp timing under control. Hope the progesterone fixes the bleeding issue and if this cycle isn't a success, I hope the next is all you need.

Bonnie- So sorry AF found you. I am sad to see you give up TTC but I totally understand and am trying to keep my word that this is it for me too. I know how "all comsuming" the temping, charting and hoping is. It takes away from all other aspects of life. I wish you nothing but happiness and blessings in your adoption and will still pray that you get a surprise  rainbow bonus. Please don't leave us totally. We want to know how you are doing. Lot of hugs and much love to  you.
