@maggie, I hope your dr's apt brings some concrete answers for you tomorrow! If your church is anything like mine, the worship is so loud that not many would notice bawling. I hope that anyone who did was compassionate, helpful and supportive.
@alzora, sending baby to grandma's house is a great idea... if only she lived a little closer -she's 2.5 hours away, so it's not too far, but we can't be spontaneous about going to visit. Plus, right now, dropping him off for an overnight visit would be traumatic for grandma, grandpa and baby. So far, I'm the only one who has ever put him to sleep. I really need to get working on that so he's not traumatized if I'm not available... it's just so much easier to go with what works! Hang in there wrt your symptoms. courage!
@daisychain, I'm glad you went for a bike ride. I haven't read the research, but I'm sure a 10km bike ride won't hinder your chances if you are used to biking that far. Plus, the bright outdoors is great for the morale!
@december, thanks for the well wishes! I hope things are faster this time than last. Last night DH said that if we haven't had a 2nd baby by the time I'm 40 (in 2.5 years), we should start the process for adoption. It took 2.5 years for baby #1 to show up. Well... at least it's a workable plan with Hope built in rather than just trying to be content with one child.
@sarah, there are so many little things that affect ttc. I hope you get happy news soon.
@j_connoy, next month will be here before you know it. Have some chocolate ... that always cheers me up when AF is around, although at that time of the month I am likely to eat a whole box of chocolate cookies instead of a reasonable portion. I hope September is YOUR month.
@vec1013, I guess you need some chocolate too. I've never tracked my temperature so I can't help you decipher your symptoms. I hope the doctor will be able to make sense of it all for you.Mommy to John Alexander & 3 furbabies; Maggie the dog, Rex & Bella the wannabe lions

@J_Cannoy and Vec, a double disappointment this morning! I'm sorry to hear your sad news.
@Maggie, ugh...you are in my thoughts. Tomorrow should FINALLY bring you some answers!
@Lilysong, I totally understand not wanting to send your little one so far away. I hope you find ways to sneak in some babymaking time regardless! Good luck.

Vec - have you read anything about charting your temperature? Apparently Fertility Friend has some tutorials, but I haven't looked at it. I've found Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler to be very helpful. Anyway, it is normal for your temperature to fluctuate somewhat from day to day; what you're looking for is a definite temperature shift - at least 0.2 degrees higher than the highest of the last 6 temperatures - this will show that you most likely ovulated the day before. Also, I'm sure you're doing this, but just in case, you can't have anything to drink, can't get up to go to the bathroom, etc. before taking your temperature, as it could affect your reading. Just hang in there with temping; it will provide you with valuable information eventually! Even if that information is that you aren't ovulating (a possibility if you haven't had a period in 3 months - I think that's what I read in one of your earlier posts). I hope that your doctor is able to help you out! It must be so frustrating to have symptoms and no period, but getting a BFN.

@Alzora - I hope my thyroid is in terrible shape! That would explain so much (inability to conceive as well as other symptoms I've had) plus my depression could be treated by medication that won't affect an unborn baby, unlike traditional antidepressants. I should hear back from my doctor by the end of the week.TTC #1
