Hey all! I'm back from a few days out of town. There is way too much on here to respond to everything individually, but I am reading it all and you are all in my thoughts.
I'm at 14DPO and I think I'm out for a Mayby. :-( My temperature was significantly lower this morning, so I anticipate AF tomorrow. In a way this is good, because the ambiguity of last cycle was a killer and I was fearing another late period, but of course, I'm still disappointed.
@vec1013 - I also have PCOS and have to keep myself from reading online because I always find a million horror stories! The good thing is that you have a medical team helping you and are able to address it. I don't know that PCOS gets better or worse over time. Personally, I've found that when I'm making an effort to be healthy and exercise, my periods are more regular, but as you're already exercising and eating healthy, but it seems you are already doing it. My doctor was pretty hopeful for me; she said that if I'm not ovulating regularly, we have the option of using medication to prompt my ovaries into doing their thing, and it usually works. I hope you are able to get some answers soon.
@CasiLayne - Sorry about today's BFN, but it is definitely good to know that any positive will be legit. Fingers crossed for you!Estella ~ Helena ~ Miriam ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Ruby ~ Ivy ~ MarillaPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Martin ~ Edmund ~ Fraser ~ Alexander

bettydogooder- I find that tracking my temp is really confusing too...I feel like it flucuates up or down daily.
casilayne- I am sorry about the BFN but I am hoping that the BFP returns in a few days...I am still optimistic for you
maggie- It is nice to hear from someone that has PCOS too. I have been trying not to look up online because it is just so scary out there and everyone is different. It will be that extra kick when I want to eat junk or skip a workout, I tell myself that I can't because of my PCOS.
Well, I got a call this morning saying that the endocrinology dept had a cancellation for next Wednesday...so I am in for next week. I am so happy and I guess God works in mysterious ways and answered my prayers to help me get answers sooner than three months from now. I go in tomorrow morning for some more blood work before my consult. Thank God for good insurance. My husband and I also made the decision to tell our families that we have been trying and that I have PCOS last night. My mom was so supportive and knows exactly how I feel. She wasn't supposed to be able to have kids and she has two. She said that if the time comes for more expensive testing that she is more than willing to chip in and help. It made me feel so much better to get it off my chest...and my mom knew that something has been up because I really haven't been myself lately. I am just so much happier than yesterday and I am not feeling as down and out...I am feeling hopeful. Thinking and talking about all of this with my mom last night, made me think that maybe I have had PCOS a lot longer than I thought. I first went in about my irregular periods when I was 16 and they tried my on hormones to start my period and they never really worked and then they put me on birth control and I had regular periods once we found the right pill. I was one that until May when I stopped taking it. So it could be that I had it before, the birth control stalled the symptoms and now they are coming back into play. Idk but just something I was thinking about.

sorry for the long absence. similar to some other women on this thread, i think i needed to take a breather from being all-consumed by ttc. but i’ve been reading lots and think i’m all caught up - as always, thanks to everyone for their honesty, support, bravery and candour. what an amazing group of women - i’m very inspired by all the strength on this thread.
welcome to all the new members! i know it can be confusing, and i’ve been MIA for a bit so just a little update on me:
35, live in canada, been with my man for 10 years (married for 4). been ttc since april, started to get pretty serious about timing etc. in july. have had lots of trouble with wondfo opk strips (never really got a true positive). suffered from missed periods over the last year or so due to stress but things seem to be back to normal thanks to a happier, healthier life and acupuncture.
as @maggiefromcanada said, there is way too much on here to respond individually at this point but my heart aches for the bfn’s, ovulation and fertility issues, and general confusion and waining patience! you ladies are all very much in my thoughts.
so as for my current ttc status: AF is due tomorrow (ish). this month i decided to chill out and forgo the wondfo opk’s as they were just adding to my confusion so i don’t know when i ovulated, but thought i had some EWCM going on and tried to bd lots all cycle and especially around when i guessed i might be ovulating. i’m a die-hard pessimist, so am very much expecting AF in the next day or so....BUT, i have one persistent, annoying “symptom” going on that is a constant distraction and a constant contributer to the little voice that says “maybe this is it?”. from right around ovulation (or shortly after) i have had sore, burning nipples. very sore. very burning. aching, burning, annoying as hell and really quite uncomfortable. it goes in waves a bit in terms of intensity but never really goes away. and its not just when i touch them, its all the time - this weird aching burn (like someone had just tweaked them hard a moment ago). my breasts are also very heavy, and firm and weird feeling. i get sore breasts often about a week before AF but NEVER like this (with it concentrated in the nipples and so extreme) and never this early in my cycle. i had this once before in may but it wen’t away a few days before AF (though this time its NOT going away, just getting worse) and, obviously, in may, it turned out to be nothing so its probably nothing now...there’s the pessimism talking! its just so EXTREME and distracting and weird that i can’t help but feel something is going on....either pregnancy or some hormone problems. my doctor is pretty casual about me hitting the 6 month mark ttc, and my age, so i had to push to have a blood test taken to check out my hormones a couple of weeks ago. haven’t hear back form the doctor so am assuming its all fine? BLAHHH. its just the uncertainty and the not knowing that i HATE SO MUCH ABOUT THE 2WW!! i just want to know so i can move forward, either way and if i’m not preggers i want to figure what the hell is going on with my nipples so i can make sure it never happens again!
other than nipples-from-hell, i feel fairly ok. felt like i had a bit of a fever over the weekend that was a bit strange (chills, sweats at night). no nausea, food aversions, cramping etc. my small, once-a-day, morning coffee still tastes heavenly.
i haven’t tested yet...just can’t bring myself to, yet. maybe because of all my frustrations with the opk’s i just feel like an hpt will be negative whether i’m pregnant or not so what’s the point. i think i’ll just wait it out and see what happens with AF.
thanks so much for letting me rant! i honestly feel better for it.
thinking about you all and sending out positive vibes

@sarah and vec- I ordered the book and read it a while ago and found it a little preachy but informative. It can't hurt. Vec- so glad you got your appointment and have support from mom. My mom is my rock!
@casilayne- fingers crossed for you!
I'm beginning to think the pill is an awful awful thing to do to oneself. I took everyone's advice to finish the pack, but my period came this morning! I'm in the middle of the third week of the pack! My placebos don't start until Sunday... I'm so annoyed... Am I going to have a 12 day period because that's just annoying. Its not a new pill, Ive been taking it for months, I take the damn thing like clockwork! I should not be bleedimg in the middlemof the month! And now regarding TTC this month when do I start even counting? The last day of the pill or today? Do I finish the pack?
Sorry about the venting, especially because this is really a trivial problem. Off to indulge in salt and vinegar chips and General Hospital. Sigh.TTC #1

AF started today. Like, with a vengeance. I'm pretty disappointed. I have a ton of other crap going on too, this just sort of adds the growing pile suck that is my life right now. Today is bad. I'm taking the rest of the day off from work and going back to bed.
I hope you all have better outcomes this cycle!Trying, trying, trying
