Hi ladies I hope your all well!!!
Sorry everyone, haven't had a chance to reply properly until now.
Firstly, I'm so sorry Monnie to hear about you and DP breaking up, how have you been going lately? Been thinking of you
Welcome MyPossum - wishing you all the best in your TTC #2 journey, may it be short and sweet and welcome back Lellski !!!
Shelby - you are so sweet, always checking in on everyone and wishing us well . Wow, Aiden is nearly 5 months and rolling around on the floor, so cute
Luckyme1 - hope you had a You had asked previously about how many times to DTD, well what I've been told is every 2nd day to allow the sperm to 'regenerate' or something like that! Good luck with it all
DD - for tomorrow, are you are furgrandmother yet?
Woowoo - great to hear Clomid is working for you, hopefully it will be your answer for bub #2
Boscosmum - hope you're feeling better, go the Berocca
Hello to everyone I've missed .
AFM - well, guess what? My FS had a cancellation on Wednesday so I was able to see her a month earlier! I was sad to find out that my eggs are of very poor quality, which was due to the severe endometriosis they found when I had a laparoscopy 18 months ago. I probably had endo for years and years and in that time it damaged my ovaries and egg supply/quality. FS prescribed me with DHEA to improve the quality, which seems to have done the trick for other ladies I've heard from in BH. I'm also taking Coenzyme Q10, Melatonin, Royal Jelly and Elevit. I had to take a blood test yesterday to determine my AMH levels, but it's not looking good . So now it's just a race against my biological clock and hopefully these supplements will improve whatever eggs I have left to give me my long awaited BFP and sibling for DS!
Enjoy your weekend everyone, talk soon

Mumtochris- good luck with ur dhea & amh results, mine were only 2.4 so not good but my fs said we need to look at the big picture not each test and hopefully I can see the results in April x
Hi girls, sorry I havn't been on in ages. Computer keeps playing up and I keep losing internet. I think I need to take my laptop to the computer Dr! I don't do any maintenance I'm clueless!
mumtochris, I'm so happy you got to see your FS a month early! You went the same day as me by the looks of it. It sounds like you have a plan now and I so hope that this is all you need to get your perfect emby. When are you thinking of cycling again? Maybe we will cycle together and it will be lucky for both of us
Bosco, so so happy to hear everything is going well. Looking forward to sharing your pregnancy with you till the end when you have your precious bundle in your arms.
Monnie, you poor thing I really thought this was it for you! Hope you can sort it out.
Shelby, whats your little man up to now? They get so big so quick but lots of fun!
Welcome to the new girls hope your babymaking is going well!
AFM, yes I am a nanna to 8 gorgeous pups it was a rough start but mum and bubs doing well now and I'm so in love with all. It's gonna be tough choosing the right homes for them and I will possibly run one on if it has show potencial. Not that the other half knows that yet
FS appointment went really well and our FS listened to all my questions and I felt answered them to my satisfaction! He is quite open to alot and he agrees that it is probably most likely sperm issues we face so we are trying a new technique which is only used in a few clinics worldwide to find the very best sperm without DNA damage to use and possibly do chromosome testing on the embryos. He honestly does not feel it is me which is nice. Although he admits my thyroid could be playing a part but he is doubtful but he may try a medication for that too (steroids) so now we have to decide whether we try all that or just some as the genetic testing adds $3000 to the cost and you get none back. So big decisions and still no idea when we will cycle again but probably not till next year
I've been trying to write this post now four times but keep getting distracted! Oh the joys of baby.
Ok, so I think I ovulated last week. I tested on Wednesday with a test and the stick had two lines. Although I realise now that I didn't check whether one line was darker than the other. But this was the first time out of all 6 tests that I've done now that I had two lines. We DTD that evening.
Prior to my last post I had decided to DTD every third day as doing it every other day was too hard as I had no idea when my fertile week was as I haven't had my period yet since my son was born. The day's when we were just too tired or hubby was sick we tested so we knew it was alright to have the day off.
We should have done it Saturday but as I assumed we were in the all clear and I was feeling very crampy and tired because of ovulation pains so we gave it a miss. I assumed that it was ok. So we DTD on Sunday instead. Now I'm worried that we may have missed our window as I didn't check whether the line was darker or not.
Anyway definitely feeling very moody and teary right now. Don't know whether that was because when my sister stayed last week she said some horrible things about me and how all the family dislike staying with me, or because my hormones are going crazy again.
Anyway should I test yet because of my mood swings? Fingers crossed I get a BFP this month and haven't missed the window.
Having to DTD with eight month baby is hard as DH is tired with his stressful job and we're all tired with bubby. But we love him so!
Oh yes, the weird thing was I was feeling really crampy all week. Starting the weekend before last. The last time ovulation was like that was 2 weeks after my miscarriage. Anybody else had that?
And today I think I'm getting my period. Poo. Oh well this month we'll try
