    Wow I don't come on for 1 day and this thread flies.

    J- I have no idea how you are feeling, I just hope you have a sticky bub and that the next few weeks go quickly for you so you can get the U/S

    Bond Girl- good luck for your U/S hope you get the news you want

    maybee baybee - I would go with your FS, as for how to discuss this with your acupuncturist I wouldn't know how to help with this as I am quite blunt myself, can you maybe ring and cancel your next appointment? Sometimes its easier on the phone than in person? Good luck.

    Nothing new with me, should have O last night/today according to GYN so hope thats accurate, will find out with B/T next Friday.

    My temp is up a tiny bit more today. How many days of elevated temps do I need, to confirm ovulation?

I am thinking about taking a step back from acupuncture as I'm feeling a little overwhelmed and confused by it. It is rather involved in terms of 3x daily supplements, weekly treatments, diet, exercise and is rather expensive. Thing is, I don't know how to approach it with her and say I think I need some space... I'm not good at speaking up!

    Does anyone (in particular J from a medical point of view) have an opinion on acupuncture/chinese medicine to treat endo/fertility or have any suggestions on how to approach my feelings with the acupuncturist? Thanks ladies.
    I have heard really good things about acupuncture and chinese remedies from other ladies on here. But if you don't feel this approach is right for you then just respectfully tell her that you don't wish to continue at the moment are you are going to try to approach your FS is suggesting. She will be fine with you. But I know what you mean as I also don't like speaking up about these things!

    Hmm sorry I'm not sure about that one. J should be able to help!

    AFM- CD 18 and my U/S this morning showed a 15mm follie. Estrogen is 1050 so been told to have a trigger shot tomorrow 4pm, so off to buy it now. I really really hope it works again this time like last month, and that this month it sticks! Do not want to go through another chemical again.

    J- can I ask you a question please? As I am due to O early on Monday morning if I do the trigger on Saturday, should I BD every day now? We've DTD the last two nights, so was thinking it should be every day until and including Monday night. But worried that the sperm count might be reduced too much and maybe I should leave off doing it tonight and resume tomorrow? Daily sex doesn't seem to have hindered us before, but just worrying this time! Thanks!

    Smurfy, it's meant to be 3 days but sometimes it's more. Usually takes 5 days before my ovulation is confirmed, even this month where my rise is really obvious, I'm 4DPO and no coverline yet!

    AFM - I had my second scan with the FS specialist yesterday - bub caught up to original dates, so doubled in size in one week to 1.5cm! and HB now 140 at 7 weeks 6 days yesterday. So stoked. He wants to see me in two more weeks. I think after that I will breathe a little easier. Still freaked out majorly about a missed m/c. Stupid working in the industry and knowing to many of the bad things. Sometimes wish I lived in a bubble, didn't know anything and could just enjoy stuff!!

    Bought Squish the cutest teensiest baby socks the other day. Our first purchase. Can't wait to put them on Squish's teensie little feet.
    Very exciting news and buying the first item I am sure you will buty a lot more now everything is soooo cute

    This morning's FRER at 15DPO. Much darker, which pleases me no end. I am still ridiculously anxious however, that this too will miscarry.

    Excellent news Mickey; your scan must have put your mind at rest significantly. I am very glad.
    My first miscarriage was an ectopic pregnancy (despite the fact I had no risk factors for it; was just bad luck), and the second miscarriage was a blighted ovum. My OBGYN keeps telling me I was just unlucky. Let's hope my luck is changing!

    J.
    Test is looking great J so much darker... Cant imagine how you must feel but big hugs and think positive this is gonna be a sticky bub

    Good luck with everything rainbow

    Congratulations button that is so exciting

    welcome back missfaery your cycles can do strange things sometimes hey just when you think you have it all figured out.

    Bondgirl and Lilsmurfy you both ovulate and you will have a great shot this month.

    FX anyone testing over the weekend

    I am 4DPO and with how busy I am I am hoping it keeps me preoccupied till after the 16th rather than my usually not being to hold off to test and caving and getting disapointed LOL

    Oh J I am so sorry It must be so hard for you. Have you got any preg symptoms yet?
    I feel completely normal which is scaring me to no end. It really is a long wait until the u/s.

    Mine goes up, down, up, up a lot. So usually when it stays up on the 5th day, fertility friend locks it in.
