Fair enough. Sorry for asking a dumb question, I have no idea about levels bc I don't get bloods done.
I hope you're still in with a shot this month. Fx fx fx
How do you know all this stuff tormy? Hmmm...think I will nickname you "mama-yoda"
Love it! A woman after my own heart...I prefer to understand what's going on too.
Have you found any websites that have good info?
I've been reading up on IVF quite a bit lately...am convinced that's where I'm going to end up in a couple of months so want to mentally prepare myself
I'm still pretty ignorant to all things BTs, hormone levels etc. but I find myself babbling on about CDs and OPKs and dpos and the most charming - CM!! Oh how I long for the days of not knowing what all these things meant and their importance in getting utd!

I long for the days of not inspecting CM and trying to analyse it and decide if it as it should be.
Tormy, I'm sorry you think you may be out this month. Thank you for explaning the blood tests. I don't know what they mean but you do and you seem to have prepared yourself for getting a negative on Saturday. I hope you are proven otherwise.
Gizmosmum, I have been a bad cycle buddy. My DH went and had a sperm test and I guess received a D grade. He has said that it is not impossible to conceive naturally, but it is not probable. I threw a pity party for myself but as there was no alcohol and dancing involved, decided to leave it behind and look for solutions. We have a referral to an Endocrinologist and I just have to make an appointment. I wonder how long it will be before we get in. I guess I can call to make an apointment and stop wondering. I was going to call on my lunch break today but couldn't find anywhere quiet. I have Friday off so I will call then and see what the next step is.
Welcome Bubbles, It sounds like you and I are in the same boat.
I'm on my 4th now...so am hoping another couple won't be an issue.
Will you do another round if you get a bfn this month?
Hey Marley - sorry to hear your news
My FS' title is 'reproductive endocrinologist' and he has a really good reputation in IVF circles. PM me if you're in Melb and want his details if you want another option. It took me a few weeks to get my first appointment.
Hope you're doing ok *hugs*
