    Sorry that I posted and ran and didn’t answer your question. I’m taking the provera because I’m about a month late now, but not pg. I’m frustrated because I’m on my 6th day taking it and no af yet. The dr said it would take 2-14 days to get af, so I could still have another week to wait. Ugh this is annoying. DH and I decided to keep trying…[Read more]

    Well, after getting my bfp on Friday, I miscarried today. That was short lived! There’s a good chance dh and I may stop ttc now. That was my second m/c after trying for a year, and I’m 41. I’ll see what my dr says but this may be it for us. I’m still open to fostering or adoption later, so we’ll see what the world hands us down the road.

    Well, I’ve been on Provera for about 5 days now and no period. Does anyone have any experience with it? I’ve gotten some weird cramps and moodiness unlike my normal moodliness, lol. Meanwhile I just learned that our best friends here are expecting their second after their second try. I’m very happy for them, but I’m starting to feel like…[Read more]

    cpalmer – I will keep my fingers crossed for you! And Lukey -good luck!

    LillBit, you crack me up. I won’t listen to myself either, I poas again this morning just to be disappointed. I’m 8 or 9 days past when AF was due, and bfn’s. I have an appt with my doctor tomorrow and I’m DYING for 3:00 tomorrow to come. I’m also very glad that I like and trust my dr so much, it makes me less nervous to hear what he has to…[Read more]

    Ralphie – thanks. I’m wondering if I may be like you, because I never got a second line at all. I checked out peeonastick.com and they even suggested testing twice a day if needed. I guess I’ll be spending some hard earned $$ on opk’s, ’cause I don’t have time to waste, lol!

    When I got pg last December, we had stopped trying for that month because I was seeing an ENT and he wanted to do surgery on my nose. Well, we ‘oops-ed’ one time that month, and that was all it took for us. I guess that’s why I was confused that I never got two lines on my opk! I thought I had an idea about when I was o-ing, but I may be wrong.

    Just thought I’d pop in and say hi to all you ttc-er’s out there. I’m in the 2ww, should be due for af tomorrow or the next day. I got impatient and poas yesterday, but nothing. I’m thinking I will have to set my sights for next month, I just don’t feel like this is my month. I have a question for any of you who know about opk’s – I bought my…[Read more]

    Just thought I’d check in again today, since I hate the 2ww so much. I’m starting to feel what is the first signs of AF, just as I thought. So now I’m just hoping it will come soon so I can concentrate on May. What a nice month it would be to get pg! 🙂

    I haven’t been on in a few months, after my second m/c. But I’m back ttc and I have a question that someone here might be able to answer: could being on progesterone suppositories give you pg symptoms? I’m about 10 dpo and my hair is falling out, which is always my main early pg symptom. I’m wondering if it could be caused by the progesterone?…[Read more]

    Just wanted to pop in to say that I saw the dr. and he thinks I’m just having an irregular cycle. I’ve been regular all my life, but he said it’s still quite common for it to happen. He said he can prescribe provera, and I think I’ll wait a week or two and he seemed to think it was a good idea. It just adds to my worries about being able to ttc…[Read more]

    After being 2 weeks late, AF has finally come. I’m relieved, I’ve never in my life had an off-cycle. So this month I had a 4ww, haha. Now back to ttc! I now know what you all with crazy cycles go though, I feel for ya!
    Congrats to all the Mother’s Day bfp’s!

  • swimmerbelly replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    thanks Diane, I think I even shocked the doctors. I think I would have gone crazy through this journey if I hadn’t heard all your stories.

  • swimmerbelly replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    I’ve heard of people taking progesterone to help with miscarriage, but I never really knew why. I had a m/c in January, at about 8 weeks. I don’t know if I had low progesterone. Maybe I’ll test sooner rather than later, to try to see the dr. as soon as possible if I’m pg. I may stop by the store to get a bunch of sticks tonight, for when dh…[Read more]

    Hey – I haven’t been on for a while, glad to hear about all the bfp’s and wow, so dsquared is having twins?? I’m in the 2ww now, af should come in a week. Gotta hate the wait! But I finally got a pos on the opk meter so I’m more hopeful than I’ve been in a while. I’m 41 and the clock is ticking loudly! I think we’ll stop in a few months if…[Read more]

    Hi my ttcer friends! If any of you have taken provera to start a missing period, could you share your experience with me? I just started it yesterday and want to know what to expect. I know I’ve seen people post about the drug on here. I can’t wait to get back to ttc. DH and I decided to give it until September, then quit ttcing. So I’m very…[Read more]

  • swimmerbelly replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    Kenzie it sounds like it very well could be pg symptoms, but I’ve heard many stories that sounded just like someone was pg and they got AF. I think testing Monday is a great idea!

  • swimmerbelly replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    Congrats Youngmummy and all the bfp’s! I’m still waiting for AF. Been on Provera for 6 days now. I’m overly anxious to get back to ttc, esp after my friends just got pg after the second month of trying. And she’s breastfeeding still. I’m happy for them, but it also feels strange because we met when we were both pg just 2 years ago. Now I…[Read more]
