    No implantation dip

    I had very obvious ones with both of my BFP cycles, and the latest one occurred with DS at 10dpiui. I'm really beginning to doubt this cycle worked...

    I was on progesterone with DS, but not with the surprise last fall. I compared this cycle to my previous ones, and it looks most like my first Clomid cycle where I had three follies and a BFN

    Cait- crossing fingers!!
    Natalie- hope you have a quick appointment and easy treatment!
    Kelly- woooo! And, can't imagine 2 month pelvic rest!!!
    Jen-hope that this is a surprising cycle chart for you and get you get bfp soon!

    I've had a super smooth chart so far- cd 8, maybe the soy is helping! It's usually pretty jagged and up and down. Feeling good and have made some fun summer plans. :-)

    I hope that you will be surprised this time! One of the few drawbacks to charting is being able to compare and speculate!


    My result from the Dr is a non-diagnosis. Urine clean (with the exception of a little bacteria, so they are culturing), WBC normal, not pregnant (so glad I got to pay $20 for that news LOL). The only suggestion was a possible gastro infection and possibly a UTI that will only be recognized from a culture (it happens). While I'm glad there's nothing glaringly wrong with me, leaving the Doctor with no news always makes me just feel crazy and like I made it up.

    Results from CD 3 tx: thyroid normal and my LH was higher than my FSH, which the Dr said was unusual but nothing to worry about b/c both numbers were within normal ranges.

    I know how you feel about leaving the doctor without any answers ... especially when there is pain/discomfort involved! I hope it magically disappears!

    Yay for the CD3 test results!

    I agree! It is small but as steady as your temps have been that one does seem a little out of place. I hope this is it When do you get your beta/test?

    This. We got rain today (highly unusual for summertime in CA), and even though it was cooler outside, it was still humid and I was so uncomfortable today!

    As for my "dip" it could be but I doubt it. My previous ones were much larger and so obvious. I'm hoping you are right though!

    I noticed earlier that because I O'd a couple days early for the first time every my EDD by LMP and EDD by O date are close enough that I could actually just go with LMP. By LMP I would be due March 11th and O date would be March 12th. With Olivia it was a 2 week difference!

    Rach - That is crazy! We O'd on the same day and same cycle day!

    I am feeling down today, I don't know if this worked and I know it's really early but I have this lurking feeling that it didn't work. I'm gonna stop testing until Saturday, I will then be 10dpo.

    Jen... really praying !!!!

    EBennett...that's awesome! Soy helps me *a lot*!! I usually drink a soymilk shake with soy protein powder everyday (can't right now because I have to be on a low/no folate diet) . Hoping for great news this cycle !!!

    Natalie... (((hugs)))....I'm sorry you didn't get a definitive diagnosis ...that can be frustrating! How are you feeling today?
    So glad to hear your cd3 testing came back normal...are you doing okay with that? On the one hand who wants something to be wrong, right, but on the other it's nice to have a reason why pg isn't happening ! Did your dr have any suggestions or do you have a follow up to discuss the results and a plan of action specifically?

    Rach...your chart looks great reeeeally hoping and praying!!

    Cait.......the 2ww is so hard anyway but I'm sure with ivf it adds more pressure for it to have succeeded...hard too, wanting to be excited but afraid to get your hopes up (((hugs))). Thinking of you and feeling so optimistic...those embies were strong, healthy, and beautiful!! I'll bet they are so cozy and growing amazingly right now ! Grow babies grow !!!

    Afm...CHs !!!!!!!!!! Sooo excited ! I am officially in the tww for af, lol, definitely not quite as fun as hoping for a bfp but it's a step in the right direction .

    My walmart cheapie hpt this morning was still bfp but very faint so I'm hoping for a beta under 20 tomorrow !!

    I'm not expecting much from my lp this month since it's my first one post-ectopic and my hcg is still elevated. My face is already breaking out and I'm feeling a little irritable so I wouldn't be surprised if af shows early.

    Lizzie-- I'm curious to see how it you progress with the soy I hope it helps!!

    Cait -- It's completely normal to have all kinds of feelings right now!

    Kelly-- So good to see your CHs!

    As for what you said...it's a total paradox, no one wants to have something wrong with them but then at least you can (theoretically) fix it. My growing concern is maybe there is problem with DH sperm (male factor is 40% of infertility) and I don't know anything about it. He's closer to 40 than 39 now and has never gotten anyone pg before. While I am of course still considering that a virtue...he had almost 10 years with his first wife where they supposedly weren't preventing. Now tbh I don't trust his ex-wife farther than I can throw her and it wouldn't surprise me if she was secretly preventing--but I have to take their word for it since I wasn't there.

    I'm just trying to keep doing what we've been doing and maybe it just hasn't been enough time yet. We're looking to get his SA done in July so still another cycle to try before then!

    Natalie...praying you get some answers !! It's frustrating for sure . I went through a year and a half of undxed thyroid disease...it was literally crippling (spent most days in bed, used a cane to walk...I was 27yrs old, had to crawl up my stairs, couldn't even hold up my hair dryer or curling iron to do my hair or hold a book up for long to read). The usual tests were coming back normal, I saw my pcp and 4 specialists regularly but absolutely nothing for a year and a half. Then I requested a few off-the-beaten-path tests, my pcp agreed, and I was dxed with AI thyroid disease...took another year and a half before I felt better but it was such a relief to know I wasn't just crazy . Everytime the tests came back normal my friends/family would tell me how glad they were but *I* cried...not because I wanted something to be wrong but because I already knew something was wrong...just wanted to know what it was even if it was really bad.

    Natalie, would your husband agree to doing a sperm analysis or has he done that already?

    I'm not a "crier", I am an emotional person I just keep it very close to me. But lately I just seem to be able to cry at the drop of a hat. I don't know what it is but I can't say I'm a fan.

    Hi ladies, I'll make this rather short. Basically I'm so overwhelmed I want to cry, we've been in the apartment for a bit now and it just keeps getting harder to deal with, Phoenix is still home from work but that's being fixed currently, we are broke and I am trying my ****edest to keep up with housework, cleaning up after myself is difficult enough but picking up after DH as well is even more challenging. He cleaned a lot of things when we first got here but not since then.

    It takes me more than a half an hour to wash dishes, just because I have to keep sitting down, if that gives you an idea of how hard typical chores are for me to do. The apartment is a disaster because we're still lacking a lot of furniture, 90% of our things are still in boxes.

    I'm just trying so hard and putting myself through so much pain to try to keep up with the house work that I'm going mad, seriously, going completely mental. DH keeps telling me to take it easy and that I don't have to clean, sooooo easy for him to say, he doesn't help with the cleaning at all, oh no, I think he washed like, 4 dishes a week ago.

    Goodness, I just need help.

    Kelly- crazy- thyroid issues can really whack out your body.
    Can I ask- when did you start soy? And do you have your soy shakes every morning? What I had looked at was taking a lot of soy days 3-7. I just ate a moderate amount on those days and was going to not eat it the rest of my cycle. I guess I've just seen info about it acting like a weak estrogen, and I was unsure about having it throughout my cycle. It seems like it really does vary from person to person what the effects might be.
    Yay about the lighter hpt!!! What a crazy long process!!!!

    Natalie- hugs!i hope you guys find some answers!

    Butane- sorry its been rough! Hope the pain goes down and you get some help cleaning!

    Really working hard at keeping my mind off the 2ww which has involved me not posting as much here. Lots of playdates this week. My little sister works costume shop for Music Theater of Wichita and is getting me in for free to see the dress rehearsal tonight for Les Mis (one of my very favorite musicals!). I am also going to get my hair cut and highlighted on Thursday. I *think* I am going to cheat and test with Cait on Saturday so only a few more days to keep preoccupied!

    YAY!!! I will do my best to not test until that day, no promises though! Can't help it, the sticks are right in the cabinet next to the toliet and most of the time I leave the baggie with them in it, on the top of the cabinet and it just calls to me!!

    Natalie...!! Not a fan of crying over everything either but on occasion my hormones throw me for a loop and I can't help it, I'm all puddles .

    Ember...ugh, ugh, ugh ...I'm so sorry you're dealing with so much still !!! Thinking of you and really praying things get better asap!

    EBennett...I added soy to my diet 4yrs ago. It's generally a thyroid "no-no" to consume soy since it's considered goitrogenic but I was having hot flashes and other signs of low estrogen (as well as recurrent pg loss) so I thought I'd try soy foods at my dr's suggestion. I drink the soy shakes throughout my cycle since it's an actual food and not a supplement which are generally much higher in isoflavones (theoretically they have a greater impact on estrogen). Since estrogen is needed throughout the cycle I feel like the little bit of a tweak from the soy shakes is more of a help than a hindrance for me .

    I had two successful pgs in the last 4yrs with no loss between them (first time in 12yrs)...not sure if it was the soy but it's also the only thing I left out of the equation with my current loss (I was avoiding soy when I got pg because I was bfing and my lo was intolerant to it).

    I drink my shakes in the morning usually (I add a few ice cubes and 1/2Tblsp coffee grounds to make a shake). I haven't had them in awhile since my soymilk is high in folic acid which I have to avoid until my beta is below 5 because of the methotrexate injections.

    Rach...praying the rest of your tww goes super fast...so glad you're staying busy and having fun with the kiddos!! Yaaay, enjoy Les Mis !!!

    Haha mine are in the cabinet right over the toilet and I have so many cheapies it would be really easy to just fly through them. I am fairly determined to wait it out but the urge is getting so strong!

    So... today could be my implantation dip, but 11dpo seems kinda late to me. Just came from acupuncture and I swear I felt 3-4 strong pulls in my uterus while lying on the table. Could just be me being crazy, but maybe a glimmer of hope there?

    In other news, we are going to put an offer an house today... yet again. I'm trying to not get my hopes up because this process has been futile for months now in this market, but I would really love this house. It needs a lot of TLC but there is just so much potential there.
