O vibes Ani, I pray that you may have good news this cycle.

Perry, only a few days away until you can test, fingers crossed for a BFP

I'm on cd# 16, and I can feel ovulation coming on. I talked to my doctor today and he gave me a referral to a reproductive endocrinologist up in Portland for my husband. He has been seeing a urologist, but the doc suggested the RE would be more helpful in getting things on track.

big hugs and good luck to everyone

Katie- Hope you O quick and strong!!!! Hope the RE can give you more solutions or options. KUP.

Thanks for the luck I need it!!!! I'm trying to stay busy but it's easier said than done. It doesn't help that my 2 year old is officially in the terrible twos, I know it's temporary but between worrying and waiting it doesn't make it easier.

a day late on update, i forgot yesterday was monday! hehe!
i am on CD#5 and we are gonna try something new this time around. we are gonna do every other day until a couple of days after i am done showing signs of O-tion. we have been just waiting for signs of O, also using OPK, which never show an actual DARKER line, so i never actually KNOW for sure or not!, and then start trying.
talked to the hubs and he said he'd "be willing to try it" -ha!- so, we are gonna start today... i had a friend get preggo the day after she got done with her AF, so, that's what we are gonna do.
anyone have any ideas on what else to do?!

also, question/comment/concern: my husband has started using a laptop for more than 2 hours a day and rests it on his lap/junk, could he be killing his little swimmers?!

Ani - O vibes. Lots and lots and lots of them. Glad everyone is feeling better as well.

Perry - fingers are crossed... sending you patience vibes, as well. 2ww is pretty close to torture. Good Luck... I still have a good feeling about you!

Katie - More O vibes and strong swimmer vibes to you. Good luck momma!

Shana - good luck with the new plan. I think we're going to try the same thing.... We're also on almost the same cycles... I'm on CD#6. I'm not sure about the laptop, I've read stories about the heat possibly having a negative effect, just not sure how much it's based in science vs old wive's tale.

My update: CD#6... Stupid AF missed her flight to Siberia last week. She's rescheduled for take off on March 14th lol. Not a whole lot to report. Like Shana, we are trying an every-other-day BD routine starting tonight. Will move to daily on CD12-15.

Shana, my doctor has told me, and I've heard from many sources, that a laptop on a guy's lap isn't good for his swimmers. it all has to do with the heat....just like the whole hot tub thing. I'm not sure if 2 hours is enough time to be harmful though, you'll have to ask a doctor. Also, make sure he doesn't keep a cell phone in his pocket...or yours for that matter

Shana- What kind of opk do you use? My RE said to use only clear blue digital, it worked for me like 5 times to get pregnant. It's not as fun as your way but it might help. GL bedding, have fun trying!!! I also heard the same thing Katie did about laptops. Why take a chance, my DH uses a lap desk for his laptop.

Jenny- Thanks for the positive thoughts, I so hope your right. I'm trying to stay positive but it isn't always easy. Sorry AF missed her flight I think we have to take her to the airport ourselves and duck tape her to the seat so we know she will stay put!!!!!

Sending both of you positive and strong O vibes!!!!!!!

l8dsheena replied to perry147's response:
Speaking of weird OPKs...I use the Wondofo brand that you dip into a cup. The trick is to read them BEFORE 5 minutes so you don't get a false positive. well, I read mine wrong, and I thought I had ovulated on the 18th. I always test until my cervix closes (sorry if tmi), and when I tested today it was positive. So much for "saving up" for 5 days ;-p. This has been an odd cycle anyway...oh well...at least we didn't miss it completely, that's happened before...

Hello ladies
Although I am very late for my update and although I never plan on leaving one, seeing Perry ask for me by name is a strong pull lol..I can't help but stop by hihi
To make this shorter than my usual I will send O vibes, O signs vibes, fingers crossed, baby dust and prayers to all you ladies..
I will take the time to say..
Perry- I hope this one is it..I also feel like there's something positive coming for this board and it feels right when I think of you getting a BFP..I am so hoping to read this from you next week
My update: CD13 today and although I am not TTC anymore Chris and I have been discussing me getting my tubes tied lately and from the both of us we have felt like we're not quite ready for that final chapter yet...so who knows right?
Have a good weekend ladies
Let life be a journey of love

perry147 replied to vybe77's response:
Vicki- So glad to hear from you. Well you never know if you and Chris are talking again why not keep trying. Don't do something that you might be sorry about later. I'm going through all this because 10 years from now when I look back I don't want to have any regrets. And if my son asks why he doesn't have a sibling at least I can say I honestly tried.
How is your daycare going? Did you end up allowing that lady to bring back her child or have you been able to get more kids to sign up? It sounded like such a good beginning for a reality show. haha. maybe called Psycho Parents in Daycare.

Has anybody heard from Pray?

Katie- GL I tried the cheap OPK in the beginning because I was hoping to find a cheaper one than CB so I tried them together and it did make a difference. So I just stayed with the CB. The good thing now with the meds is that I don't need to worry about having to test anymore. I do the shots for about 8 days then the hcg shot which makes you O in 12-36 hours. Makes it kind of idiot proof you would think but it still doesn't seem to work every time for me. Oh well!

Have a great weekend ladies!!!!
