Wow, sorry for some reason I wasn't getting the updates emailed to me so just saw this!
I can't believe how hard it can be either (not for us (yet!)...for the MANY couples I've heard from who have had so much difficulty conceiving...)
We spend much of our lives trying to NOT get pregnant and then bam, we want to and I think our bodies get us back or something, lol:-)
How did you appt go...? Any other glimmer of hope offered...?
We're in the midst of third time trying...
A couple weeks ago when AF came though, it was a BIG one..as in, a tidal wave...at work...it wasn't pretty...let's just say it was a VERY good thing I was wearing black pants that day:-) Yikes.
So, not sure what went on there...
We're not doing anything other than tracking my ovulation and timed intercourse...
I'm thinking we'll wait til the six-month mark of trying and then look into other options...I'm over 35 so after 6 months of unsuccessful trying, that's when they refer you to a specialist (at least where I live:-))
As for whether my cycles are consistent...no way! I don't think they ever have been:-)
I'm on day 20 right now and I still haven't ovulated, though according to the FM I'm at "high" fertility, so it's coming I guess:-)
I'll tell ya though...peeing on a stick get's pretty frickin' old, pretty frickin' fast:-)
Hope you're doing well?;-)

I think he finally sees that there's a problem so he mentioned going to get a SA (seman analysis) done and talking to the doctors again about what our options are. So we have an appt next Monday to do both of those things. I have a feeling they are going to tell us that IVF is the next step and we aren't there yet - mentally, emotionally or financially. I'm hoping that we can maybe go back to one of the drugs (preferably in pull form!) that will stimulate ovulation so that maybe we can get my right side working instead of my left always ovulating. I just can't believe it's been 1.5 years since our loss and we are still trying. Who knew it would be this hard??!
Are you guys doing anything other then tracking ovulation and timed intercourse?
Rereading the last few posts, I had to say that I'm on CD18 now and still haven't ovulated! FF has pushed back my average day to CD20. Just wanted to put that out there since you were worried about CD19 last time. Have your cycles been consistent since starting the FM?
