okay ladies, who's all trying this month? let's get excited!! I really feel like nobody is ever on these discussion forums 😂
happy mother's day btw to all the mommas
I am trying this month. I started my.jourmey for ttc #2 last month. This is my 2nd cycle.
baby dust to you!
Baby dust to you too!
I tried this month as well and had my first consult with the fertility doctor.
@perry261 is this your first time trying with donor or have you before
@ttcnumber2! that's amazing! I hope we are all blessed 🙏❣️
@ttcnumber2! Good luck this cycle!
@dixie0892 I have a soon to be 3 year old that I used donor spwem with. I am trying for #2. Is this your first?
@perry261 yes, as a SMBC! I have been researching this since I was 19 and now am 28. believe it or not, I have order history of donor baby photos from 2012 😂 so I feel I am more than ready and confident in my decision. are you a SMBC or do you have a partner?
@dixie0892 I am a SMBC as well. I was talking about having a baby by myself as a teenager as well. I always wanted to be a mom.
@perry261 that's so cool! glad I have another person to ttc this month with! I'm only cycle day 2 today so I'm getting more and more antsy lol. how early do you order your tanks? I love hearing others tips and tricks
This time I ordered it to come in on Cd 12 which is tomorrow. The last time I took Clomid with my daughter I od around 15 to 18th. They say to have it there 3 days early. I am hoping that it wasn't too soon. Last cycle it came in on Cd 12 and I got a positive on Cd 15 and that was with Soy. So I am hoping they are about the same this cycle.
We did an iui yesterday , right on mother's day. Crossing my fingers for a positive
Iui #4 !! In the tww
@blue200011 wow hopefully this is your egg! fingers crossed for you 😊
@blue200011 good luck! I hope you caught that egg!
So this cycle is something. I got a positive on the cb digital yesterday, but my easy at home are all still negative. So I decided to do an ICI last night. This cycle I decided to do three cials and I have to decide if I want to do it tonight at 24 hrs and then go from there or wait for the easy at homes to show a positive.
hmm I'm a newbie but I think 24 hrs for 2nd vial and then 3rd vial at positive opk sounds promising! all in all it depends on how you feel. go with your gut! someone I find really inspiring and insightful is "mamabethie" on YouTube. she's done 2 successfully ici at home with frozen, and only 1 vial both times!
i plan on following her tutorial here, ive bought everything she used in this video and plan to do it exactly the way she says!
@dixie0892 thats good that you found a video. I actually do everythingnbut the soft cup lol. i keep my legs up for 2hrs when I got pregnant last time. I planned to do exactly what I did last time I got pregnant. So last cycle I did just one vial at 24hrs, but I it was unsuccessful. This cycle I decided to try 3 vials because I am older and didnt know how my surge would go. I will probably just do 1 at 24 hrs again next time if this one is unsuccesful. Are you close to ovulating? I actually got a bfp the first time I did ici at home, unfortunately it ended in misscarriage. Two cycles later i got pregnant with my daughter though. Both of my successful cycles i only did 1 vial at 24 hrs.
im only CD 4 today. im going to have 2 vials to use just to cover my bases. sorry to hear about your miscarriage :( that would be so devastating but atleast you didn't let it stop you
@dixie0892 It was hard, but I had to keep trying. Do you have to take medication or are you doing natural cycles? I have PCOS and do not ovulate without medication. So I take clomid. I originally for my very first trying did IUI with an RE. I didn't like her timing and prices lol and started doing ICI at home. She had told me I wouldn't be a good match for Clomid, but it worked for me. I'm hoping it still is working.
unmedicated. im very grateful that i dont have any fertility issues that have been detected and have a 28 day cycle, ovulation is always either cd 14 or 15 and dr says my folicles all look great. that's why i decided i better do this now before i am 30 to give myself the best chances
@dixie0892 Thats why I started trying at 28. I was worried about infeetility with my diagnoses. Hopefully this cycle will be a success for all of us trying.
agreed! keep us all posted, i will do the same on here
I ended up trying another clear blue digital and now have a blinking smiley. So I think the first positive ovulation test was a false positive. I am now waiting to ovulate again. I am hoping it happens soon. This has been a crazy cycle for me.
do you track your CM along with opks
Yes. I just got Ewcm. Sorry for the tmi. I am getting darker opks and I think by tomorrow it will be positive.
@dixie0892 I got a solid smiley on cb digital and a very close to positive [email protected] So I am doing ICI tonight and tomorrow. I had a lot of cramping and decided to do one ici the night of time of the positive cb digital. Hopefully tomorrow the [email protected] will be even darker. How is your cycle going?
cd 7, just started my clearblue digitals and my wonfo opks. both negative but I like testing early lol. just found out I got my requested time off from work during my fertile days so I'm super excited
