    So ladies, a conundrum (sp?).

    Last month ov'd left side (blocked side) so thinking this month we're in with a fighting chance. I'm CD14 today and I only started OPK on Saturday CD12 just to check I was on my way to o today/tomorrow (for past 13 months have o'd CD14, pos OPK on CD13). It was a strong line, but not a positive so thought all was well. I tested again yesterday, definite negative and then last night and twice today and all negatory. I cast my mind back and I has some CM on Friday so I'm wondering if the OPK on Saturday was the down side of the LH and I ovulated early. What do you think? I'm hopeful not as we weren't able to DTD thursday or friday . But then am I going to ovulate late?

    I'm also seeing my FS tomorrow and was planning on telling him all was OK, but now I'm not so sure . I really wanted to let it go a little while before we explored further assistance, but is this the universe telling me that it is time to come to terms with this...

    Hi all!

    Jut back from my FS appointment and I'm sitting on the couch with hot tea and ice on my ankle when I should be at work. It's a long story:

    The FS was very good, took a solid history and said a short LP is very uncommon(!) but agreed that I did appear to have one. He looked through my FF charts. Then he did an ultrasound: I'm on CD17 today and have been expecting to O any day now since Saturday so I was v curious. He found two good sized follicles, one 21.1mm and one 15mm, and said I should O in the next 72 hours. He interviewed DH too and booked him for another SA.

    The plan he made is to check my bloods every day over the next three days to pinpoint O and check my LH and oestrogen levels, then again in a week to check progesterone - so I can't take extra for luteal phase support this cycle. Then in two weeks we go back for a plan which will probably be Clomid at first.

    So I went next door to the lab for my first lot of bloods. I had to give seven vials as he wanted to test AMH and other stuff too. I'm not good with needles but I'm usually okay as long as I look away. This time, however, I woke up on the floor with the nurses leaning over me calling my name, and a worried DH in the waiting room having heard the long bang as I fainted. :-/. I banged my leg on the way down and have a lovely bruise.

    And I have to have more tests tomorrow. I think ill have those lying down

    As the nurse said, this is something to tell the kid on its 21st birthday!

    Byline I hope your leg is healing well and you're not too bored on the couch. Meg2, thank you for the research! Maplefern have you started treatment yet?

    Hi Rustypants - welcome!

    Wunsi not sure about your OPK tests, sounds like you may have ovulated a little early...

    Meg2 thanks for all of the information was really interesting gives us all a little glimmer of hope.

    Wishing4 how are you finding going through the natropath for your thyroid I've been considering seeing one for my thyroid have been referred to one that specialises with thyroid function.

    Roro hope all of your tests go well and your ankle gets better! Agree with the nurse you will have to take the tests lying down tomorrow! That will be a great story to tell later on

    I went to the specialist yesterday and he said that my thyroid wasn't as bad as he thought so will be only on a low dose of medication which means that we can start ttc next month as it won't effect my pregnancy. BUT other tests have come up that I have polycystic ovaries http://www.babycenter.com.au/preconc...aproblem/pcos/. So will be taking medication for the thyroid first then go back to the specialist in 4 weeks to see how the medication is taking effect and then sort out my ovary problem. Still staying positive at this stage, had a little bit of a laugh about it my dad joked you will be pregnant at 50 the rate you are going well in the mean time will have to practice ttc and maybe a little miracle might happen

    Hi all,

    So, it seems this whole TTC gig is a bit trickier than they made it out to be many (many) years ago at high school - all of us seem to have something or other going on that makes it a little tricky. Wunsi, I hope you're getting your head around the IVF. And I hope your testing this week is going well Roro. And I'm glad to hear your hyperthyroid is on its way to being fixed Maplefern.

    I think we'll be pushing out our start date till June now - my hypothyroidism is now down to what they'd consider high end of the normal scale, but not down to what my GP would like before I start TTC. On the plus side, I at least seem to have (hopefully) ovulated this month - was a bit worried that only having come off the pill 6 weeks ago and still being hypothyroid, it wouldn't happen. In fact, I'd largely given up when it suddenly appeared on CD24. Having not had a normal AF since I started the pill about 17 years ago (!), I was surprised that it was such a long cycle! Unforutnately, DH has already locked in his FIFO swings for the next three months on the assumption that I'm a normal 28-dayer. Oh wel....

    In the meantime, I'm enjoying hearing what's going on with everyone else. It's nice to know I'm not the only person keen to become an "elderly primigravida". (Seriously - what's with the "elderly" in that stupid term?)

    It's been an eventful month for TTC this month hasn't it? Nice to read of everyone's journeys. It seems we all have our obstacles and I REALLY send out all good thoughts to everyone as you navigate through. Particularly you Wunsi. This must be a big step to hear those IVF words and get your head around what that means. I can totally understand taking some time to process.

    Rustypants - WELCOME! Great to have you along. We look forward to hearing how you get along.

    RoRo - that story takes the cake! Hope your bruising settles and that your next encounters with needles are less dramatic. Great to read that you'll have a really clear picture of what's going on with O. I'll be interested to hear.


    and Maplefern - your news is great with the thyroid. Bet you're thrilled. Escpecially since you can continue to try whilst on medication.

    I love that everyone manages to stay so positive on this forum and that we all step it through methodically to get to the answers we need and to the end result we hope for. I really admire you when I read these stories and it encourages me to keep taking it step by step and taking it as it comes. Yay for the over-35's and our (mostly) sane approach

    Hi Maplefern

    The naturopath has done great. I have to say the liquid herbs taste terrible but I persevere with them. My thyroid results were leaning towards Hashimotos disease a few years back. The last 2 years of tests have been great. No problems with the results. If you are in Sydney, she is in Hornsby. She will want a full blood test so she can work out what you need. She specialises in fertility too. Just google The natural health and fertility centre. I also started acupuncture in readiness for next FET.

    Hi to everyone else. I hope all is well with everyone.

    Regards wishing4
