Hey all! Just popping in to say welcome to @GIJanie and hello to everyone else.
It seems there are a few of us in our TWWs now. Aside from myself, I count Sarahmezz, J_Cannoy, CasiLayne, and Vanessa. Looks like the end of next week could be very eventful on here. :-) @Bettydogooder, any news from you?
@December, good luck with this ovulation. It's wise to take a breather on the obsessive tracking. I hope it worked and leaves you more relaxed for this cycle. :-)
I'm 9DPO. I've had a bit of back pain this week, although I had that last cycle as well. (I really hope two weeks of back pain is not going to be my thing now that I'm off the Pill. That's no fun!) Yesterday I had some mild cramping, which I suppose could be implantation, but no way to know for now.Estella ~ Helena ~ Miriam ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Ruby ~ Ivy ~ MarillaPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Martin ~ Edmund ~ Fraser ~ Alexander

@Sarah, no reason to lose hope for this cycle yet! Even though you didn't babydance much, it only takes once, and sperm can live for up to five days inside your body. So there's a good chance that your fertile days were covered. I'm holding out hope for you!
@Riversong, ugh...I hope the adhesions stay away now. You should be able to find Wondfo ovulation tests on Amazon, and they are extremely affordable. Good luck!
@Dindlee, a Spanish teacher!! I've said countless times to my family that teaching Spanish would have been a fun career to pursue. My Penn State Spanish instructor stands out as the best teacher I've ever had in my academic career in terms of creative teaching skills. He had the entire room laughing during every single class, and often instigated confusing games like "Simon Says" in Spanish. He made teaching Spanish look like a dream job. On the TTC topic...I think you will love the Wondfo tests. Go for it!
@December, I'm approaching ovulation too. Good luck in your fertile window! Looks like we'll be enduring the two-week wait together.
@Maggie, maybe you will be our next BFP! Is anyone's period due before yours? Good news has to come to this thread eventually, and I hope it starts in the next few days here.
I made an interesting observation today! You know how I always say that my body hair (legs, eyebrows) grows noticeably faster during my fertile days? For most of the month, my eyebrows stay nicely shaped and my legs stay smooth for a long time after I shave them, but during my fertile days AND for a brief period later in my two-week wait, stray eyebrows begin popping out like crazy and my legs feel prickly by nightfall if I've shaved them that morning. Today I figured it out. Testosterone! From the Hormone web page that I often refer to: "This hormone that’s traditionally associated with men is also produced in a woman’s body–although in much smaller amounts. While the amount of testosterone produced is relatively level all cycle long with a slight increase during the middle of your cycle during ovulation, the amount of testosterone your body uses actually depends on your estrogen level. The more estrogen you have, the more effects of testosterone you will feel. So, if you’re in a high estrogen week, you will feel more effects of testosterone. If you’re in a low estrogen week, you will feel fewer effects of testosterone." It dawned on me today that testosterone is the hormone that makes men hairy, and so--yuck!--that must be the cause of my hair growth spurts around ovulation! Estrogen and testosterone also rise in a woman's body for a brief few days later in the cycle around the PMS week, so that accounts for my PMS hair growth spurt. Now I feel like I should go do manly things like cook on a grill or hunt down a wild boar. Maybe I will grow a beard.
Okay actually I am making myself sound like a hairy beast over here, and I promise you it's not that bad...just a weird little thing I've noticed about my eyebrows and legs; I am not turning into Saskatchewan.mid-20s . married to my best friend . trying for our first
Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in glorious light.
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

Hey everyone...I am thinking about all of u but I had my doc appointment today. It was nice to finally get in to see a doctor. We has a long talk about what could possibly going on and what the next steps should be. She ordered another serum pregnancy test and that came back negative, which I figured it would. So now I have started taking a medication to induce AF. I have to take the pills for ten days and then my period should show up anywhere up to 2 weeks after finishing the ten days. Then on day 3 or 4 of my period I will go in for more blood tests and that should cancel out some of the issues or possible pinpoint the cause of not getting AF. I also discussed my fears of PCOS because everything that u read about it makes it sound awful but the doctor said that it isn't as big of a deal as it sounds. Not ovulating is one of the easiest things to fix and correct. I am feeling a little better but still scared that there might be something major going on. I am just trying to be positive and looking forward to getting some answers.

@alora We're so doing that!!!
@maggiefromcanada Crazy huh! I find out on the 20th. 7 more days!!!
@carrotcoriander Thanks, Dear!
@ve1013 I think a ton of people have PCOS. They've never come out and said that I do, but I've had cysts every month that they've checked. You might end up doing some Clomid to get eggs to produce. I also take Ovidrel to make the eggs "drop". But I don't know a lot of people who do both meds.mamacravings.com
