    @kibby: I hope you don't mind me saying that it does sound rather judgemental, however I think you mean well and I appreciate your honesty. I also hope you don't mind that I don't feel like explaining myself to you, or anyone else at this moment, since I need my energy for other things. No hard feelings.

    @meyera4: I understand what you're saying, I really do, but believe me when I say that So and I have thought and talked about this a million times. I'm many things, but impulsive isn't one of them. That being said, I'm still not sure.

    I don't feel like going into any of this right now, so maybe you'll see me again soon in this thread, maybe not. Best of luck to all of you!

    @rosebeth, no questions asked. You know your family's situation best <3 You had just asked a question about I was just responding with what may have been causing you apprehension. Bottom line, as I said, I do think it's normal to be a bit apprehensive before adding another baby, even if you are totally prepared. There are just so many variables and unknowns. I find myself wondering, what if we get pregnant and it causes major long term health problems for me, what if the baby doesn't sleep, what if my kids act out due to another baby, what if the baby has special needs and requires lots of medical attention, what will this do to our finances, etc. I just have come to terms with there will ALWAYS be something scary about the unknown, all I can do is hope for the best <3

    @rosebeth - If you are still around to see this, I can see how it did come off judgmental after rereading what I said, I can be entirely too blunt sometimes but truly I didn’t want an explanation or for you to delve into your personal life, just for you to ask yourself those questions. You don’t owe anyone any explanation! I do wish you the best of luck, We are all here to support each other, you’ll make the right decision for yourself whatever it may be.

    My saga carries on over here. I just finished my second period since my miscarriage but my hcg levels are not budging. I get to go for another lovely internal ultrasound on Wednesday to see what’s up. Not sure what the next steps are from here honestly!

    @kibby: if you think I haven't asked myself those questions you've completely misjudged me. But that's normal, since we don't know each other at all.
    I hope your ultrasound will clear things up for you.

    Hi, everyone! I'm new on this exciting journey, which I'm doing solo. I'll be using an anonymous donor for IUI in March, and have my initial consultation appointment in a week. Using a donor had been my plan since I was 16 (I'm 27) and I feel like I'm in the right place in my life to do this.

    Hey K_rassy13! How interesting! May I ask what made you decide so young to use a donor (purely out of innocent curiosity) I wish you the very best of luck!

    Kibby - I hope they get to the bottom of things for you and have my fingers crossed that your rainbow will come soon !

    Rosebeth - I hope you are ok and haven't been put off the forum? I'm sure no one has meant any harm. Whether you're here or not I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you too!

    I'm on CD 17 when I used to ovulate most frequently but so far my clear blue advance opk has not picked up any high f or peak f days... Come on egg!

    Hi, @scillyellie ! Well, I have had nearly 16 years of a pretty darn heavy period with over-ovulation, and the last few months it's actually calmed down/lightened. Since it's always been consistently heavy, that alone is a concern for me and I feel like now is the time. Using a donor has always been my plan, too, since I've never felt inclined to get married. (I haven't had good examples in my parents or aunts and uncles.)
    Best of luck to you, as well!

    @K_rassy, welcome and good luck to you!
    @kibby - still sending you good vibes and hope they can figure out what is going on
    @scillyellie - hope you catch that egg!

    I'm using OPK's for the first time this month - I know, I know, I should have started a long time ago. I don't know why I've been putting it off. I just got the cheapies and I hear they are super confusing - any advice?

    @scillyellie: Hoping that egg comes soon!

    @K_rassy: Welcome! Wishing you all the best with this path! Love the names in your signature, btw!

    @meyera4: Oh shoot...it's been forever since I've used those. I can't remember too well...and I had some odd considerations between having PCOS and being on fertility meds at the time...but I do know you can find yourself in a huge rabbit hole if you rely on Google too much. Lol. Basically, follow the instructions on the box (with how long until you read the test and all of that). It's much like taking a pregnancy test. Easy way to simplify it is if the test line is as dark as or darker than the control line, the OPK is positive and you should try to have sex very soon...we'd do it that day and the day or two afterwards. If the test line is lighter, it is negative and you should keep testing each day until you get the positive. People get complicated with the exact timing things mean, but I found it a lot simpler to do it the way we did.

    CD 30 over here now. Ovia says I can test in 9 days, so I guess I should be in my TWW. We'll see how my ovaries decided to act this month, though, hahaha. If this cycle doesn't work, it'll be a bit of a sad milestone because February will mark 3 exact years we've been trying.

    Hi there. Good luck and welcome to everyone who recently joined the thread and fingers crossed to everyone in the TWW!

    @Seedsandstones - Good to hear from you! Can't believe our babies are 2 and change now. Hope as is well with Reuben. I hope everything lines up just right with trying for #2.

    I'm 8dpo (days past ovulation) here. Of course, it's way too early to test. Of course, I've tested three times since yesterday. BFNs all around. Why do we do this to ourselves?? I'm giving myself another day or two before I get fully disappointed. With all four of my kiddos I've gotten a very faint positive at days 8 or 9, and a very clear positive at 10dpo. So even though 10dpo is still early, that's kind of been my cut of for mentally preparing for one outcome or another.. If things don't work out this time, I'll at least be happy if the AF waits until the weekend to show. Last month it came 11dpo, which is probably too early to even have much of a chance. I'm hoping it'll be closer to 13-14dpo this month, if it does come. I did get a little excited last night because a number of smells bothered me in a way they normally don't. But none of that happening today.. I did calculate that a positive now would mean a due date on my daughter's birthday, which is not ideal (not that any of my kids have come on their due dates, but still) and it would also fall just weeks after the oldest three are scheduled to start in new schools. So good timing? Probably not. But man, I'm hoping for a positive!

    Good luck, everyone!
