Good luck Kelly!!!
Only a 15% drop this week from 27 to 23 . On a positive note I asked the nurse if I really have to continue with pelvic rest until my levels are <5 because at this rate it will be 8-12 more weeks (still hoping af helps though) and she said she'll talk with the dr but is thinking at this point it's not going to be a problem...I'm hopeful !! LOL, I'll probably get the green light and af will show ! Anyway, it's frustrating to see such a minuscule drop but it's a drop so I'm going to focus on that .
Maybe because you O'd and have HCG your body thinks it's prego so it's trying to sustain the preg and you have higher progesterone and stuff? Possibly?
I was actually wondering that too! With my endometrium thickening and being so far out from the mtx I'm wondering if those hcg producing cells are somehow being "fed" again so it's slowing down the anti-metabolite effects of the injections. My body still seems to be keeping up since my levels are dropping but obviously there are still some cells in in there producing hcg.
Cmon af....I need you, lol !!!!
I heard Parsley Tea helps AF come. Also a heating pad, and of coarse, Sex!
Kelly and Natalie- sounds busy!!!!! Wooo
Rach- hope the appointment goes well and anniversary sex sounds good!
AFm- who knows! Got a bunch of ewcm today and yesterday. But I swear that I had o pain a few days ago that would line up with the pos opk. Temps not conclusive at all but my sleep has not been great the last few days. At any rate, visiting with family this weekend, so that's keeping us busy! Hope something clear-cut happens soon!
Happy 4th of July!
On the BBT- I have the Walgreens one too and it works fine but left it at house and bought a CVS one... Both are good...
And doesn't it seem like sometimes life doesn't coincide with our Fertile window...
We got in some BD yesterday but he started feeling bad again at night. really odd, just like body aches that get worse as the day progresses until bedtime he's completely miserable. I really hope we can BD one more time but he looked a little rough this morning so I'm not going to push it or probably even mention it. He knows it's that time and if he feels like it then it will happen.
Besides you only need one...right?
Natalie- you only need one!!! Hope dh feels better soon!
I got dotted crosshairs this morning. Yay! My temping times have still been inconsistent. I feel like my usual 2 ww signs. But still having the ewcm. Crazy! I would try to bd, but hard to fit that in while staying with family, lol. I did find a bfp story with similar ewcm from 1/2 dpo. I'll keep my fingers crossed!
EBennett... for chs!!! !!!!!!
Natalie...so glad you got some bd in !! Go spermies go !!! I hope dh feels better better soon!
Dorcas... for o soon!!
Double m...I have a walgreen's bbt too
Afm...big temp drop and spotting !!!! I'm expecting a light flow later today ! Parsley, sex, black cohosh, and vitC...not sure if it did the trick but that that was my regimen the last two days .

Thanks Kelly! My usual O is CD20, so I'm hopeful that I'll see a positive OPK close to Monday and not on CD29 like last month! Super excited for your AF to start ... words not often said in these parts. ;)
Natalie, Yay!! I'm glad you at least got 1 BD session in. ;) And you are right, you only need 1!
EBennett, good luck!
Yay for cd1 Kelly!!!
Kelly -- Yeah CHs today
My temp did a weird thing that I don't think it's done before. I'm trying not to worry about it but I am kinda anyway. Someone (it believe it was Kay) mentioned months ago about a temp dip 2-4 dpo having a specific cause. I can't find the post or anything about it online. I may ask her if she remembers what it was.
Anyway I'm sure there's a perfectly reasonable explanation like when I got up pee and had a hard time going back to sleep or maybe I was mouth-breathing and didn't realize it...
That is a fallback-rise and (I think) is perfectly normal. Sometimes you may get an associated day of more cm because of the extra estrogen. No worries!!
I am at my 7dpo breakdown day where I wonder why I thought I would get pregnant this cycle. Lol. I want to take a nap and cry, lol.
