It does help. Thankyou!
Breathe in and out and hope tomorrow is a different day lol
Agree with Tortoise, please don't apologise. Let it all out, you have been through a lot and have every right to feel the way you do.
@Sally1981 just checking to see how you are doing after yesterday? Hope you are recovering ok xx
Hi @Lollyandme I’m sorry you have to wait too. I hope the time passes quickly for you!
@jalapeno Vent away love. 4 weeks is a long time – it’s bound to take a toll on you. I hope things start looking up for you soon
@Sally1981 How are you getting on? I hope your D&C went smoothly.
Afm, my HCG has dropped to 20. I’m glad it’s still going down, but I wish it would just hurry up and get to zero! I got my bfp on 4 March, had surgery 2 weeks after that and methotrexate 3 weeks after that, so it feels like this is the never-ending cyle! Gah. It’s annoying, but I’m ok. Just really looking forward to moving on.
How about everyone else? Good weekend?
Many hugs Jalapeno. Have you spoken to the dr about the length of time you've been bleeding? There might be something they can do to help it stop.
MrsChino. Many hugs to you too.
I'm feeling a little more positive since my last post. I actually did some exercise on Saturday and I'm still paying for it My thighs are so sore that I can barely move. I started getting a few slight AF type pains today and I was a tad confused thinking it was too early so come back to check when I said CD1 was. Turns out I'm on CD30 so not early at all lol.
Hows everyone else going?
I need to get this out because it's doing my head in
My usual cycle is anywhere from 28-42 days but I usually get PMT symptoms in about week 2 or 3. I'm now at cycle day 31 and my b00bs are sore and feeling bigger (sort of spilling out of my bra a little bit), I'm tired all the time but sleeping really bad hours, my lower abdomen is a little firm and I'm getting slight crampy type feelings. DH also commented today that my skin is clearing up and I'm glowing. The only time my skin has cleared up is when I've been pregnant. I'm trying so hard not to entertain the thought that I might be pregnant but I can't help it!! The chances are so slim. My PCOS is pretty bad so the chances of me ovulating are slim and DH is on Testogel which can lower sperm production. Yes, we've DTD more than we usually have (new pain meds and the gel means DH has had a libido!!) but it's still such a small chance.
I'm going crazy here but the idea of POAS is freaking me out just as much. I know if it was a BFN or when AF arrives I will just crash really hard which is why I don't want to entertain the thought. I'm just
Wow @Chunkydunks... That's heavy! I can understand why you aren't wanting to entertain the thought of it but I would probably test. Either way you're going to have an answer so you could wait for AF or you could put yourself out of your misery and find out what's going on...
That is a tough one chunkydunks, I can see why you don't want to test and how difficult it will be if AF arrived and you had your hopes up.
I really hope it's the best case scenario x
AFM- looks like TTC will be put off until the end of the year. DH only arrived home only to be told he's heading away again so that's every single month he'll be away when I'm ovulating. Joys of TTCing with a hubby in the forces argh.
I know I should test but knowing my cycle can be longer means that it may be possible that it's too early to pick up or that it's just another stuff up with my PCOS....arrrrhhhhh!!!!
@BabyG4 have you guys thought about using a clinic so they can freeze his sperm? I know it seems a bit extreme but that might help. I'd hate to think he'll get back at the end of the year and then have to go again! 😔
@Chunkydunks in that case I would set a date and if no AF by then I say test. Maybe give yourself another week because like you said it could be the PCOS causing you to be late. I hope you get some good news though.
