Sorry you're not having any joy ladies MrsPope fingers crossed for implantation bleeding, you never know.
SMEP starts tomorrow for us on CD8... although DH kicked it off early last night lol. Maybe he just wanted to practice. Got some cheapy OPKs online so I might need your help with them once the time comes...
OmRum – I am so sorry to read about how much pain you’ve
been in, I hope the doctors are able to move forward and find out why this has
happened to you.
Good luck with the SMEP Sammykate
All the best Tallie with the doctor’s appointment although I
am still hoping that you won’t need it.
Good luck Mrs M, I don’t really know what to suggest, maybe
go ahead with CD8 just to be sure, but I know the SMEP can feel quite intense.
I’m sorry you’ve had such confusing bleeding Mrs Pope, I
will still keep my fingers crossed for you that AF stays away.
How are you doing Dandelion? What dpo are you? Good luck
with the builders, we’re planning on getting our bathroom done soon but I just
feel very nervous about it, it will be the first major thing we’ve done in the
I’m sorry about the baby bomb Mrs R, I had my first one last
week on the second day of the MC, a couple in my group of friends shared their
scan pic in our Whatsapp group, we’re not close, they’re related to another of
my friends so sort of part of the group because of that, but I think it hit
because of the timing and the fact I just didn’t see it coming. I was in tears
because I just felt so sad for us.
Thank you all very much for your kind support. I don’t really
have much to update with really. This MC has been very different from the first
two. Physically a lot worse, but fingers crossed I may have finished bleeding today
after 11 days.
This one has been officially classed as a Pregnancy in an
unknown location and to be honest that makes sense with how much pain and
cramps I had from the moment of ovulation. For me, something didn’t feel right
from the beginning and I am just relieved it didn’t turn into an ectopic. I
still feel quite numb about it all but we’re still going to have a break from
TTC and go ahead with the NHS testing and if that doesn’t help I have been in
contact with Coventry and a private implantation clinic. They’ve said once I
have a positive ovulation test we can call them and they will do a biopsy and
they test for the NK cells which this isn’t available on the NHS.
So I am feeling better knowing that we have a couple of
plans in place. Although we’ve already hit a stumbling block, our GP surgery
lost our referral so that’s been delayed, but they’ve said it’s been sent now
so hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer. Fingers crossed.
So sorry Hannah, you sound like you're coping well by taking positive action though. Hope you have a nice little break somewhere planned with hubs to relax and de-stress.
My hubby has told me he's going off to see his friend in Devon this weekend- um great right when we are supposed to be doing SMEP! He wants to set off at 8am on Saturday so ughhhh do I really have to be awake and BDing at 7am...
Sorry about AF, MrsPope, although it is always comforting when it is regular.
Best of luck with the renovations, Dandelion! It's a pain now, but it will be lovely to have the house how you want it.
I find SMEP exhausting too. I think I'd rather go back to just doing it a couple of times during the fertile week and enjoying it more, but when you're right in the middle of it you feel like you should be DTD at every opportunity! I'm undecided yet as to whether to OPK this month or just go with the flow.
I’ve had my blood tests back – all normal. The problem is I
can’t remember what I was being tested for (I was so dazed on Monday morning),
so I don’t know exactly what it means! But normal is good. I now have to wait
for them to contact me by mid-June about organising the ultrasound scan to see
if I’ve got fibroids, PCOS or anything else lurking in there. Once that is done, I
think I shall go back to the doctor and ask him more about the results and
whether I can have the day 21 test, and if necessary have the laparoscopy to
see if I have endometriosis. Has anyone had the procedure before? It doesn’t sound
Anyway, here’s hoping I’ll have a BFP by then anyway!
Afternoon everyone, sorry I've been MIA again. Been off work the last 2 days unwell and I tend to only check in when I'm in the office!
Sorry AF got you MrsPope, I always have loads of clear CM during my AF but especially at the beginning. I'm glad your DH is getting on board with taking vitamins and changing up your BD pattern
Lovely to hear from you Hannah and I'm sorry you've had such a rough time I hope the testing brings you some answers.
Husbands are such pains SammyKate, good luck for your early morning BD tomorrow though
MrsMin that does look close to being positive, like the others have said you may have 2 surges but then you might also Ov early this month! Sounds like you're covering yourself either way though so fingers crossed!
OmRum it sounds positive the blood results were normal and I think your plan of things to ask your GP for are completely reasonable! I hope they bring you some answers, I can't even imagine how awful the pain must be
Super exciting about your building works Dandelion, can't say I'm not suuuper jealous! We've had a few quotes for what we need/want doing to our house and they were upwards of £40k.... Will be saving for a longggg while for that! The stabbing pain definitely sounds good! It's one symptoms so so many of my friends have had that made them think they were pregnant!
Tallie what DPO are you again? What symptoms did you think you were having?
Also no update really from me - roughly 8ish dpo. I also had some pretty painful stabbing pains but they were at 2-3dpo so way too early for implantation. Been having some other off pains and aches in my womb and ovary areas but nothing very specific. AF due next Thursday, got a super busy weekend planned for the long weekend with lots of drinking most likely involved (plus it'll be end of lent and I've not had alcohol for almost 7 weeks now!!!!) so at least I'll be able to drink happily if AF does arrive!
Glad you have positive things (like drinking!) to look forward to even if AF arrives MrsRagdoll! MrsMin good luck with starting SMEP.
OPK today at CD9 and a definite negative, no hint of a second line. But I am a day early testing by SMEP. Just wanted to see if I really need to BD before hubs leaves tomorrow morning and thankfully it looks like a no lol. However will test again tomorrow to confirm!
