    Interesting info RoRo. I googled the elevated hips thing and there is definitely a school of thought that says it isn't useful. I agree that if the little guys are gonna make it though, they will in most cases.

    All good here. Some hope for hubby's friend as he is undergoing many tests and some aren't showing the cancer as they thought so it may be something else. If so, it will still be bad but a huge blessing also. Only time will tell.

    AFM I think I'm 6DPO and getting frustrated with Fertility Friend as it isn't showing ovulation and I don't know why. I had the usual dip and then rise in temperatures at CD12 as I usually do but it isn't registering as that being O day. Hmmmm...not sure what's going on. Anyway, I'm feeling so much better being back to temping this month. I was going crazy in the TWW with nothing to keep an eye on. I'm bound to get frustrated at taking temps again soon, but for now it's all good.

    Thanks for asking about the elevated hips thing RoRo. I won't feel so stressed by it now, although I might still do it?? Not sure. I'm trying to follow SMEP exactly and it says to do it...

    Anyway, we are at the last SMEP day today (for this month anyway)...thank God! It really takes the romance out of it all.

    I'm symptom-spotting big time today. Need to learn patience.

    Glad there's some glimmer of hope for your friend Nat.

    Hi Nat526
    Ive had similar fun with Fertility Friend over the last 2 months. It keeps telling me that Im ovulating a day after a positive OPK despite the fact the temp seems to rise the day after that. I don't get it.

    I think we Oéd yesterday so a couple more days to make sure and then the waiting game begins

    Hope everyone's TTC efforts are proceeding well this month!

    We went to visit SIL/BIL/N over the weekend. She's doing really well now - will hopefully be released from hospital this week. She still has some vision issues which may or may not be permanent, and occasional aphasia (who doesn't occasionally forget a few words!), but all in all, it's an excellent recovery. And her LO is well - throwing back bottles like it's going out of style!

    All the stars are aligning for our first proper attempt next week - DH has changed his roster to be home, and a potentially ill-timed work trip to Kalgoorlie for me has (thankfully) been taken on by a colleague. I'm looking forward to finally rolling the dice!

    Hi Gentoo, I'm glad your SIL is doing well.. I remember reading your post a while ago- very sad, but great she is on the mend.

    Great news Gentoo. I was only thinking of your SIL yesterday and wondering how she was getting on.

    Out of interest, I've attached an article from Fertility Friend below. (Excuse my font here, it's gone weird from cut and paste!)

    What are the chances of conceiving beyond age 35?


    Increasingly, many women are delaying childbirth until well into their thirties. Women who are trying to conceive beyond the peak reproductive years of their twenties, however, are often very concerned about their conception chances. While it is true that fertility rates decline with age across virtually all human populations (Wood 1989; 102; O’Connor et al 1998; 127) and the time to conception is generally longer for women who are past their mid-twenties, (Dunson et al 2002) the chances of conceiving within a year or two are fairly good for women in their late thirties, especially when intercourse is timed well in the fertile period.

    The cumulative conception rate for women aged 35-39 is 60% after one year of trying and 85% at two years (Taylor 2003). While this may not sound so promising when you want to have a baby right now, these figures may be higher for women who are able to identify their fertile time and focus intercourse within the fertile window. Time to conception is considerably reduced when intercourse is focused within the most fertile window of the menstrual cycle (Hilgers et al 1992).

    Women may delay childbearing for a variety of reasons. In a recent survey of women aged over 35 years seeking assisted reproductive technology, Hammarberg and Clarke (2005) found that 18% of the women in their survey cited “being unaware of the impact of age on fertility”as a reason for their delay in childbearing. Other reasons cited included the desire to complete one’s education, the lack of an appropriate mate, career ambitions, financial concerns, and not wanting a child earlier (Hammarberg and Clarke 2005).

    Whatever the reason for delaying childbearing, the pressures of trying to conceive quickly are often greater for women beyond their peak reproductive years. It is generally recommended to begin investigations after one year of trying without conceiving or six cycles of trying with “fertility focused” intercourse (Gnoth et al 2005). Women who are beyond their mid-thirties, however, may want to consult their physicians earlier if they suspect any potential fertility issues or if they are concerned that conception is not happening as quickly as they hoped.

    Vivre - my understanding is that ovulation is on that dip day. It rises after that when progesterone is released. So the pattern is usually a positive OPK one day, ovualation the next with a low temp, then a high temperature for the days after that. So yours sounds like it's right. Hope this helps.

    Thanks Nat I get what you mean, I think I haven't explain it very well. My temp seems to dip one more day after FF says Ive ovulated.. Its happened last two months but not this one so we'll see what happens.

    Im off to the Fertility Specialists tomorrow for ultrasounds etc. so maybe I might hear how the blood test have gone. Given we have been through the fertility period (DPO2 today I think) hubby hasn't held off on his tests so Im hoping its not much of an issue

    Well visit to Dr yesterday & all blood tests are ok. Had an ultrasound & apparently my right ovary is hiding -- think I might start talking to it to coax it out.. Ha ha
    Now awaiting boy & progesterone tests. Dr says if that's all ok, next stop is laparoscopy
    Phew..

    Hmmm...hope your ovary comes out of hiding Vivre!

    We're out for this month. AF arrived today
    Oh well, onwards and upwards. We have an appointment at beginning of July to check things out. So we will fit one more cycle in before then. Even though it all feels frustrating, we've only actually tried for 7 or 8 months so I suppose we're still in the average trying time.
