I can’t believe we are starting May’s thread. Crazy! Time really doesn’t fly when you’re TTC, but at the same time, it’s hard to believe that most of us are still here doing it all again!!
:welcome: Lok! :welcome: I can’t answer your question either. I have no idea what “not ovulating” means! That’s an interesting question, though. I wonder what the answer is. I would imagine it means you didn’t have any follicles get mature enough, so none of them burst open to release an egg, but that’s only a guess.
Praying- I can’t wait to hear how your IUI went today! I haven’t done one yet. We’ll be here for you during your 2ww!
Hopeful- glad you’re hanging around! Have you looked into the supplements FertileCM (fertilecm.com) or Fertilaid? I started FertileCM a month ago and I saw a huge difference in my CM. I don’t know if it would be the trick for you or not, but if you’re doing an unmedicated cycle this next time, it might be worth a shot. If I get a terrible BFN this cycle, I’m going to start on Fertilaid too. The reviews on their website are pretty impressive.
AFM- this whole cycle, my emotions have been all over the place. One minute I’m feeling depressed anticipating my BFN and the next I’m feeling hopeful and happy, like this might be my month! Today I am CD23 and 9DPO. I typically see :af: CD25-29, depending on the month. But since tomorrow is 10DPO, I think I’m going to test. I actually am not feeling very hopeful today. Today makes the 4th day in a row that I’ve been feeling strange little twinges and pains in my lower pelvic area. They do feel quite different from my typical pre-period feelings, but I don’t understand why it’s been going on for 4 days!! The first 2 days I was excited because it was exactly when I should have been experiencing implantation, but now I’m thinking, what the heck?!?! I shouldn’t be feeling implantation for 4 days! So maybe it really is aunt flo on her way. sigh.
My DH has been so sympathetic and supportive this cycle, but this morning he said maybe we should just expect a BFN, since really, what is the likelyhood of us getting pregnant? We’ve been off birth control trying on and off for the past 6.5 years! He’s right, it’s pretty unlikely. I will keep you all posted though. I don’t know what I would do without this forum. Besides God, who I know helps me too, this forum is what keeps me going most days!! Love and :babydust: :babydust: :babydust: to you all.[/QUOTE]
Thanks Sarah. Means a lot! Iui went well. A little painful this time but diff dr and I felt pretty much nothing last time. I am praying I get a good temp rise in the morning because I so want to ovulate at a good time this cycle. I was the slightest bit crampy before the iui so hopefully I have started ovulating or ready to. I am cramping now but can’t tell if it’s from the iui or O or BOTH!
Sarah I think the cramping could be a good sign. When I got pregnant with my son I cramped a couple of days before I tested (on CD 13) and it was positive. So I say to start testing tomorrow!!! But don’t get discouraged if its neg because that is still early
