Just stopping in so hope you all don't mind?! We had our nt scan today, Heartbeat was 145bpm. Neck measurement was 1.5 & bub must be a boy as was very uncooperative. Waiting for Dr to call tomorrow with the risk result but the ultrasound lady said all looked good. Measured spot on for 12 +4. Hoping all is ok.
Hope you all are going ok on the rocky journey. X
Wow can't believe you are over 12 weeks already so very excited for you.
Still plugging along, 21 months now. I'm seeing a gyno and having lots of tests in the next month, including bloods, HSG, u/s and I'm on the public list for a lap. Trying to stay positive but it's getting harder and harder....
So happy for you Lama!!
Del, I'm really glad you're getting the tests done, hopefully they find something that's causing the issue and it's easily treatable.
I think about you ladies all the time and remember how much amazing support you've given me. I'm 28+3 today and don't think I'd be the same person I am without you all.
I hope you get some answers Del x i cant believe it either!
Time has flown Angelini. I couldnt agree more about the amazing support that everyone so freely gives here.
Awesome news about the scan Lama! Here's to the next 6 months flying for you!!
Del, I also hope the tests turn up something with an easy solution for you. It's just not fair that you are still waiting for your sticky addition to your family!
27 weeks tomorrow - excited to be 2/3 of the way through, now just need the next 3 months to continue to be uneventful (well, except for the big event when it's time!).
Congrats Angelini, Stretched and Lama - so glad to hear things are going well for you all, gives us hope still.
Del - for you and hope the tests give you some much needed answers. 21mths is far too long and i hope ur journey for you new addition to your family is short!
Rae - still thinking of you and hoping you doing ok.
to everyone else. Not sure how many of us are still left on the horrendous journey but it's nice to see other's popping with their good news to keep our spirits up.
AFM - saw FS last week and he happy to do a few more OI cycles and then try IVF again. Bit disappointed as hoped he had some other options, as tried everything before with other clinic and that didn't work. HOping he might have some different drugs at least. I thought the longer this would take (we are now into our 5th year of TTC) i would get use to it more but the time actually seems to make it worse. I will be 36 in a few months and i should be planning to have my second kid not my first. Oh well, at least i've got an overseas trip back to the UK in july to look forward too. x
thanks girls. I think I know what is going on. I'm not ovulating properly. Got a pos OPK Monday, didn't get a dip until yesterday, then a spike today and got all excited. Then I got full ferning on MB and another pos OPK (they went faint after Monday). I've been looking at the annovulatory charts and this is very very common. My LH is getting high enough, for some reason I'm not letting the egg go.
This is only my 2nd month of temping and last month I def ovulated while taking vitex. Not taking it this month. What has thrown me all these months was getting the pos test I would watch it go faint then not test again.
Will see how I go over the next few days I guess but pretty clear this month is a bust again
Del I hope it doesn't take too many tests to determine if you are ovulating or not. It must be so frustrating but good that temping has helped give you a clue as to what is going on, especially as the OPKs say to stop testing once you get a POS, which you were doing but unfortunately missing the later surges. Hopefully this is a discovery in the right direction!
