CD 15 Positive Ovulation!!

Just got a positive using 2 opk (ovulation predictor kit) I've been using CBFM and the Clear blue digital (for back up I had extras from last cycle) 

This is what it looks like when you have a peak or surge, three bars with a little circle represents and "egg" haven't seen EWCM (egg white cervical mucus) or "watery" CM (cervical mucus) to indicate an early + opk. 
Once you get your + opk BD (baby dance/have sex) the day of, next day, wait a day then bd again! 

Here is the clear blue digital opk. This is simply really easy to use just insert stick every morning and wait till it give you a smiley face. Non fertile days it gives you a 0. 

Fingers cross this is our month!!

Clear Blue fertility motor

As you all may know, i have been using the clear blue digital ovulation kit that come 20 ct in a box for the past 4 cycles. Round 4 and after reading countless reviews about the motor we decided to purchase it. Best price was on Costco website $160 with 30 test strips.  It comes with a manual that's like 20 pages long. Read it and re-read it before using it so you know how to use it. Use the first morning of Cd 1 you would have up to Cd 5 to program it. Every morning turn it on till it ask you to insert a test stick. It will go from low to high then to peak. 

This will be my second cycle with this Monroe baby dust!! 

DH sperm analysis

DH (darling husband) has a mid low mobility sperm. 51% of sperm were not moving and only 12% are high grade movement. She said that analysis doesnt indicate infertility but low fertility. 

The dr has recommend the following vitamins (please consult with dr before taking any meds this is what our dr recommend for my DH) 

Vitamin C 500mg twice a day
Vitamin E 200 units per day no more 
Pycnogenol 120mg (amazon) 
CoEnzyme Q10 100mg 
Green Tea one cup per day
Dark Chocolate small piece 70% coco 

DH (darling husband) has been taking it for 2 months now and he says he has more energy and sperm is thicker. Tmi sorry her wakes up "with a tent" and gets  excited easier.   

Round 5: Clomid

Cycle day 6 and on my 5th round of Clomid. It's been a long and hard rode that's why I haven't been updating. 

Hopefully it happens in the next two cycles if not we will move into IUI, which we hope we don't have to.

Round 3:

I'm on Cycle day 5 and went to the Dr. for my third round of fertility treatment. As routine they gave me a vaginal ultra sound (not pleasant) and talked about my progress. Well... I stop taking my metphormin and that was a huge No-No. The lining in my uterus is thickening and that’s not a good sign. Dr. told me my next cycle is going to me “like murder.” Really upset with my self that I stop taking my meds…she says to insure I get pregnant and stay pregnant I have to take my meds. So not only will I be moody and emotional because of the Clomid but now stomach cramps and nausea due to the metphormin.

Hope this is our month…some days I just want to throw in the towel. Sunday was a hard day from me…seeing that my cycle come is always hard, but I try to hide my tears from my husband but he knows. Let see how this month goes… Hope someone either today or someday finds this blog helpful or encouraging.

Our first round of Clomid was not a success. Even though the Dr. Anticipates that it might not happen till 3-6 cycles I wanted to bad for this round to be it. Friday is our second appt with the fertility dr and 2nd round of Clomid. 

Hopefully this will be our year.

Mr. D's brother and his wife are having their first baby. I made this banner for their gender reveal party. It's a boy: 

Banner: Cart I use was Monograms for the scallop circles and banner and Lyrical Letters for the name.

Card stock was bought at Michael's

DIY Wreath

Another Pintrest idea that I couldn't wait to do. Bought the wreath, flowers and letter at Michael's. Entire project was under $15.00 dollars. Just place flowers and letter and use a hot glue gun. .

I've decided to share my journey inorder to get thru this difficult time. -Virginia D.
