    I can't believe we are half way through July already...where has the summer gone? I don't know about everyone else but here in PA it has been very hot and very dry.

    My update: CD 11 I think. I haven't been tracking although I thought for sure I was pregnant last cycle. I am pretty sure that I was 4-5 days late but sure enough I wasn't. I see the RE later today but I doubt there will be anything new. I am mostly continuing to see him because of the PCOS and trying to keep that under control.

    Hugs, prayers and nothing but happy vibes coming to all of you lovely ladies!

    I can't believe we are halfway through July! NE Ohio has been very hot and very humid lately. It feels like walking into an oven when I step outside. But I know soon enough I will be complaining about the snow so I try to still get out and appreciate the heat when I can! lol

    Kristin - Hoping your RE appt goes well. Keep hanging in there.

    My update - CD31 waiting on af. I am so confused this cycle. I tested yesterday with fmu and got a bfn. I am saving my last test in case I end up being late but I'm not very hopeful at all.

    Hi everyone! I can't wait for summer to be over,what's up with this heat?
    Kristin: Good Luck this month,hopefully you ovulate soon and get your BFP.You are so young,I know something great will happen to you soon.(((HUGS)))

    Britt:Hopefully AF stays away,I know that you tested but nothing is for sure.Keeping my fingers crossed.

    My update: CD#27.I am in 2ww but I don't have any symptoms at all so I don't think it happened this month.I think I am ok with it though b/c I have been trying to shed a few lbs.For some reason during and a little after the last pregnancy I gained a few lbs,maybe it was the progesterone.Anyways,I have lost 10 lbs in 4 weeks and I want to lose 5 more in order to get to my normal weight of 115 lbs.So,I think I am not super upset that is not going to happen this month. Sorry if I rambled too much.
    Have a great day ladies!

    Can't believe July is halfway done either..time sure does fly by too fast..
    B- I've been following your story through the threads so I am going to wish you lots of luck w/ this month's outcome..I'm keeping everything crossed that you don't see AF show up and that you get a BFP instead!! (Also, 2ww means 2 week wait..that dreaded time between trying for a baby and waiting to find out if it worked out)..GL this cycle

    Ani- Congrats on the weight loss, that is amazing! I also wanted to tell you not to count your chickens just yet 'cause aren't you the one that told me back in Feb. that no symptoms doesn't mean no BFP? One just never knows..GL this cycle

    Britt- I'm so sorry this month has been so hard on you..wouldn't you know it that when you truly think you've conceived is when your cycle decides to play tricks on you.. I'm hoping that your spotting will stop and that you will indeed get a BFP as you've been hoping for.
    Baby dust and GL!

    Kristin- I'm sorry last cycle turned out to be a bummer for you. I am hoping that this month will turn out better GL at the RE today and KUP on what developpes

    Heat wise it has been hot, humid and muggy up here in Quebec Canada too..haven't gotten a lot of rain recently.. finally got a little on Saturday but it lasted about 30 minutes.. we have two a/c's running so we are fine in the house except that when you attempt to go outside afterwards you simply feel like dying..

    My update CD 29 today and for a brief amount of time yesterday I thought we had conceived this cycle..I woke up in the morning to some very light spotting..thought it was probably due to the BD from the night remained the same throughout the day and then went this point I started to (foolishly) think, what if it was IB? So I tested twice and one of the tests had a faint BFP..or so I thought..this morning the spotting is back and there's a little more of it..I think this is the start of AF (early) and that the BFP I thought I saw was just an evap line again..don't want to say it matters but it did bum me out a little..
    Better luck to all my ladies..have a great day and an awesome week!!

    Hi All
    The weather here has been very hot and dry. Our grass is completely brown and ugly. But, I agree with soon we will be complaining about snow.

    Kristin--good luck at your appt. Hope the RE can help you.

    Britt--hope AF stays away. KUP

    Ani--good luck this month...some symptoms dont show up till later Congrats on the weight loss as well. I gained some weight through these past two years of trying--some of it related to the pregnancies and most of it due to emotional eating afterward probably. A friend and I have been working out for a couple months now and I have not lost a pound! So, good for you. I'm totally jealous.

    Vybe--sorry if you got your hopes up and were disapointed...but who knows, maybe it was just too early to test and you'll get a BFP soon. Good luck!

    My update: CD # 8 today. Had my HSG today. The test went really fast. She put the dye in and said "your tubes are open...ok we're done" and it was over. I guess thats it?? Maybe they'll tell me more at a follow up consultation or I'll get some more info at my sonohysterogram tomorrow?? If that was it, it seems a little pointless to me since we have been able to get pregnant just not stay pregnant--what does that have to do with my tubes? Oh well, next test tomorrow but I'm losing hope on ever getting an answer on the recurrent m/c. Not really supposed to be actively trying this month so its CD 8 but not really "waiting to ovulate" or anything.

    Good luck to everyone.

    PS Pray--I think you mentioned in another post that you were nervous about scheduling an HSG--it wasn't too bad. Just a little crampy and it was over in less than a minute. You are a strong can do it

    Kristin- Hope your appt went well.

    Brittanie- Hope AF stays away.

    Ani- Hope your 2ww has positive results. Good luck!

    Vybe77- Think positive, don't give up hope yet.

    Michelle- Glad to hear the hsg went well. They do stay that you have a higher chance of getting pregnant the first 3 months after having a hsg exam. I had 2 hsg exams and both times I got pregnant within 2 months. Hopefully you'll have a positive result this month.

    Mel- Glad to hear everything is going well. Please keep us posted.

    My update- I'm back! I took some time off to do a little soul searching about what our options are because obviously the last drug cycle didn't work even though i had 4 good follies. So I talked to the RE and asked if it was possible to give it another shot because I had good numbers with the last cycle and condering that I haven't been trying for a year yet so he said I could have another try. Thank heavens!!! So I'm currently waitng for AF to show up but I did have a positive O on CD13 (which I'm told can happen after a medicated cycle) so maybe there might be a slight chance even this month. I am currently on CD16 and started my 2ww.

    Perry- So happy the RE is giving you guys another try but I am going to keep my fingers crossed that maybe AF will be a no show in 2 weeks..GL!!
    Mel- Ecstatic that your pregnancy is going great and I was reading the other day that you're pretty close to you anatomy scan..GL w/ that and plz do KUP!
    Michelle- Very happy that your HSG test went well and I am hoping that you will get nothing but good results from for the recurrent mc's unfortunately some women never do find out the why of the situation..I am hoping that although you went through what you did that when you do conceive again that things will go smoothly all the way through..take care xoxo
    Another me update: I wanted to thank you ladies for trying to boost my spirits about the spotting, and yes Mel you're right that my last pregnancy did start with some but alas 'twas not to be this is CD1, after lightly spotting for two days she finally arrived..

    Michelle: Glad that HSG went well,I really hope that you'll get some answers from all these tests.

    Well, all the "O" vibes worked. Thanks ladies! I'm 3DPO. Again there were really no signs, so we didn't bed the night before ovulation. I give up! Why can't I ovulate, the times we have several days of bding.

    So next time along with the "O'" vibes, I need "O" signs vibes.:S:

    Kristin: I'm sorry your body fooled you last month. I know you feel you are at your witts end. What did you find out from the RE?

    Brittanie: Keeping fingers crossed.

    Ani-Way to go on the weight loss! Sending you tons of good luck vibes!

    Vybe-Hugs. I hope you are feeling better.

    Michelle-I hope you get good news on your other test. Thanks for letting me know about HSG test, I will probably need your support when I get ready to have one. EEK.

    Mel-Thank you so much for thinking about me. I think about you often and so happy for you.

    Perry-I'm glad the doc is willing to give it another try, but I hope this will be a successful cycle and you will not need to try again. Sending lot of good luck vibes.
