My SIL was released from hospital yesterday. They got the contractions to stop and have given her a couple of steroid injections. Her bile salts were high, so they are going to monitor that.
Hope you are all having a good weekend
Morning ladies, well still going on trusting my body I think I'm now 1DPO, will be testing on the 24th and have a baby shower on the 25th so fx.
I am new to forums so please excuse me if I use the wrong language......I mnight need some help in that dept. I am 36 this year and my hubby will be 40 so we may have left this too late but we are only now emotionally ready to taqke the plunge. I had my IUD removed last month and my Gyno have me some ovulation kits so i can test LH levels to help with conception. I am regular with my cycles and both of us are fit and healthy so here's hoping it happens for us soon. Hubby would love it if I was pregnant by christmas but I don't want to put that pressure on myself......I guess time will tell! We are heading for an overseas holiday next month (for 4 weeks) and am kind of hoping we conceinve while we are there as we will both be relaxed......... Good luck everyone and thank you for letting me share
Welcome Deb I hope you can conceive a holiday bub! Nearly every lady in here uses Opks (ovulation predictor kits) so we can help you out with all you need to know. Have a fun and short TTC (trying to conceive) journey.
Hope your cycle returns to normal post-IUD removal.
Ask lots of questions if you chose; I am a doctor myself, we also have a midwife (Button), and lots of bright girls very experienced in the world of TTC.
Thanks for the welcome! The OPK i use is similar to a pregnancy test and measures the LH surge - they are the same ones the my Gyno uses for his IVF patients (not that we are doing that). From what I understand if the surge is present I will ovulate within 24-36 hours - does that sound right? We are trying to be relaxed about it but realise that time is not really our friend due to our ages so need to be somewhat proactive as well. I have been charting my cycle for the last 7 months and have a 31 day cycle. We regularly dtd during ovulation this month and while I am not trying to get my hopes up am counting down the days till I can test......
