  1. holy cow! I really thought yours would be ok as you opk said you just ovulated. Sorry to hear you have to wait also :( But yeh, the upside is if its a short cycle then hopefully we won't have to wait too long. When I asked my specialist if the reason why mine was short, could because of the last cycle & chemical, he said no. Which i thought was weird, because I've never had a short cycle like that.. and now that you have also gone short it makes me think it must be our bodies out of whack from everything. I'm not too happy about having to do a hormonal because my body is so sensitive to drugs, when I just didn't think it was necessary to do a hormonal one as I am usually so regular, so it makes it even more frustrating. But you will be pleased to know that I do not think it will involve needles for you. I was given a script to get some tablets to take from day 2 of my next period and if I fall preggas they are to be continued till 7 wks, so you might have to do the same. Its called Progynova. There could be a tigger needle needed I'm guessing though. Leigh

  2. I'm so sorry to hear your cycle has been cancelled. :( But it sounds like you are handling it really well. I love your idea to post a few positive things that resulted from receiving the initial bad news. It's good to not dwell on the negative.

  3. So sorry lovely, I hope you are right that this is a short short cycle and you can soon get on with a medicated one. Good on you for your three good things, such a great way to look at it. Lots of hugs

  4. Well crap. I am sorry that this natural cycle had a mind of its own. Your attitude and outlook is awesome though. If I am right I think on a medicated FET cycle you should only be taking birth control, estrace and then the progesterone. From what I understand it is so much easier on the body then the fresh transfer. LIke you worded perfectly, not a step back but a side step.

    Thinking of you as always!

    1. Yes, I think you're right Toni about the meds. That doesn't seem too bad at all.

  5. What if you try the OPK's with the smiley faces? Though if a medicated cycle is next - its kinda a moot point.
    Sucks your cycle was canceled, but that just means the next one will be it :)

  6. I'm so sorry your cycle was cancelled.

    Looking at your chart, I would, without a doubt, say that you ovulated on cd14. Your test results make me wonder how much any of us should trust temps and OPKs. :S

    1. She may have ovulated on CD 12 just depending on her pattern - I say that because I get a temp dip on O day and then it takes a couple days for my temp to spike.

    2. After temping this morning, my FF decided that I ovulated on CD14. But the nurse yesterday told me that it looked like I could have ovulated about a week ago (not on the day I had my first ultrasound - CD14). I think I'll stop temping from now on. My body makes up it's own rules!!!

  8. I really am sorry about the cancelled cycle, I know how crushing that is. It sounds like you're doing a good job keeping your head up! I hope AF comes on time and you're able to move on soon.

  9. I'm so sorry your cycle was cancelled. But I am so impressed by how well you are handling it. My cycle was nearly cancelled on Friday, and I spent the day in (and near) tears. But hopefully AF gets here soon and the next cycle will work out perfectly!
