  Vickie. 43, hubby 46, 3 children- 21, 15,15

CD I think 1 ,maybe, hopefully been trying for 34 cycles now.

Still trying natural and only temping and charting but not really keeping track of that like I should. I am getting more and more used to the idea that this may not happen. I plan to stop at the end of the year anyway.

I have had 2 really long, strange cycles, that both looked like I O'd normally but took 43 days to end  The dr said I am in peri ( which wasn't a surprise)  and my endometriosis is back so I feel a little hopeless but will still try this last time. The good side- I have lost 7 pounds in the last month so I can be happy about something.

Here goes:

Nina, 40, happily married, 1 week ago I learned at the ER at 8 weeks there was no heartbeat after beginning to bleed.  Lost the baby 5 days ago on Saturday.  Still crying my eyes out, still bleeding, and still physically hurting.  

HCG was 495 on Tuesday.

This was my one and only positive test and it was natural.  Waiting for my period to try again and I have my HCG levels being tested again on Wednesday.  

Nina, mc at 8 weeks, October 29, 2012, mc at 4.5 weeks on January 12,  staying positive and third times's a charm???

Hi gals!  I am finally back--after not being able to log on until today.  Urg!  Frustrating...

I am Krista (40), DH (43) 4 boys 6, 8, 10,12

I am 7 dpo in my 7th cycle TTC after losing our son, Will, at 14 weeks.  His pregnancy and loss really hit me hard, as it did our four boys.  They've been asking ever since if we would have another baby.  I thought we'd get pregnant easily, as we did with all five of the boys (Will was even a surprise), but I was wrong.  Cycle after cycle with a BFN.  I am almost ready to throw in the towel and move on to the next stage in our lives.  We've planned a cruise in January to go on with the boys and may also try to go on a ski trip in March, if we don't get pregnant this month.  We will see...I am temping and charting and everything looks good for TTC, but things just aren't happening.  It is so different from when I was in my "baby-making prime"--2nd son was 2 months TTC, 3rd son was 1 month TTC, 4th son was 1 night, and 5th son was a surpriseSmile  Things just kept getting faster!

Vickie, that's great that you are starting a fresh cycle!

Nina, I was so sorry to read of your lossCry  I'll be sending lots of prayers for a quick physical recovery, and gentle hugs for the emotional pain this leaves you with.  I still have my teary days and it has been 7 months for me.  Best of luck with a new cycle!

Here's to lots of turkey babies this month!

Hi Vicky, I am having real problems with the boards now I cant see any replies, I receive no notifications of replies and last week when I could reply I couldnt'get my chart or ticker to show in my signature. right now on this board all I can see is your initial opening message no replies or anything. Could you please pass this along. I have tried changing the BB code to html and back again and also all the codes in the sig page but none work for me. Ava

 Vickie 43

CD 12

This ol' body acted like it was gearing up to O but temps show no rise yet. One wierd thing this cycle- BB's are so tender and tingly- that's odd for me with no sign of O. This started yesterday so I'm silently hoping I did O but temp rise is just slow for some reason. Just waiting, and waiting...

Hi Vickie, I just had a quick look at your chart (so expert that I am NOT!) and despite the gorgeous little snail in the ticker (which I loved! I so feel the same about my cycle) could your cycle now be having a much longer first phase prior to O, when you look at the two overlay charts of Sept 2011 and Mar 2010 both cycles you O on day 12, but since I have been on this board you have had two longer than usual cycles.  Perhaps now it is that your O day is now much later in the cycle. Its so frustrating waiting for O to happen I really hope that it organises itself for you shortly, at least your AF is not like half a month long!! (like yours truly)...you wont believe it my laptop battery just expired! but...Im back.

What is the cp line for?

Im so new to the charting, it feels a bit rude trying to offer any meaningful interpretation, but on a gut level, I think we have a sense of our own bodies and if you are feeling that it is on the way (symptoms etc) it probably is, even at the snail like pace it feels like!

Gotta go to work now, yuk so want to stay at home, and play with ds.

I hope the hurricane didn't affect where you are too much where you live.

fx and hoping too.

 Hi Ava. I do think my cycle has gracefully extended it's first phase (half) on me. Thinking back to over 2 years ago though, when I got pregnant with my first lil angel in heaven, my cycles were 32- 35 days so O was around CD 18- 20.  Those 2 charts in the overlay are my 2nd and 3rd pregnancies that  both ended in m/c during the 5th week. I'm not sure why I keep them there- I guess in hope of adding one more pregnancy chart to compare.

 My temp did not rise today so I think no O yet but I do believe my body tried. I will just keep watching for signs and waiting.  CP on the chart  is cervical postion. I check that and cervical mucous/fluid.

We were very blessed to not be in the direct path of that terrible storm. I live in Georgia and we only had bad winds as it traveled the coast. My heart breaks for all those that were hit by the storm. I can not imagine what they have endured and I pray daily for them to rise above and overcome.

Prayers and positive thoughts that we both get good results from our cycles this time!

Vickie, Im so glad to hear you were not in the hurricanes path and that you and your family were safe. 

I think those charts are there for a reason Vickie, keep them there, they count.  I only looked at them as a comparison as they all popped up when I clicked on your chart link.  I send you prayers for your angels.

Thanks for the explanation of terms.

Big Hugs for the watching and waiting, I am sure you will get an O later on in your cycle, as you are only early days in.

Just waiting for the babydust to sprinkle down upon us. Best wishes and fx for both of us.

Ava
